Talia Dalton lives her life on cruise control. Despite her successful career as a professor, she prefers protecting her broken heart to taking chances. She’s calm, cool, collected, and steady. Until the morning she takes her eyes off that familiar road and almost runs over the sexiest man she’s ever seen. It may not be the best way to start the day, but it might be the type of shake-up she needs.
Male dancer Derek Grant has goals, and nothing is going to get in the way of achieving them. As a graduate student and the sole caretaker of his ailing father, he hasn’t much time for relationships. Then Talia crashes into his life. Sweet, pretty—and so buttoned-up that he can’t wait to help her cut loose.
For Derek, falling in love was a beautiful accident waiting to happen. And it might be exactly what Talia needs—if she’s willing to let go of the past and embrace every surprise Derek has to offer.

Talia is a professor. I know many women who work in academia. She is so perfect, right down to her worry about Derek being a student. She also has a family that cares about her. Her sisters want her to have what they have, but they know she needs to unwind a bit first.
Derek is the kind of young man everyone wants their sister to meet. He’s working on an advanced degree. While he is currently a male dancer and bartender, that is because he quit his job as an accountant to take care of his ailing father. He’s a man who puts family above all else, until he literally runs into, or more properly is hit by, Talia.
As Derek and Talia try to manage whatever obstacles are in the way of their joint happiness, you will follow them on a journey I’m not sure I would have been able to do myself. You will meet friends and family of both of these wonderful characters.
Pick up a copy of Love Like Ours and take a journey with Derek and Talia. You will not regret it. I received this book through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.
