Description

There is a thin line between love and hate. For Allison Walsh, that line was a tightrope hanging a hundred feet in the air, with no safety net to catch her if--or when--she fell.

Ali was barely treading water after losing her big brother, who was her hero and best friend. His sudden death left her to raise her twin nephews when the man that was supposed to share the responsibility with her went MIA after the funeral.

Kade’s MMA training made him a champion, but it never equipped him to fight off the one force beyond his control: his feelings for his best friend’s little sister. He’s sure his demons mean he’s not good enough for her, but he’s going to do everything in his power to conquer them.

When the sexy, tattooed fighter shows up on Ali’s doorstep out of the blue with a bag hanging over his shoulder and a smile that would make a nun blush, he seems different. But after all he’s put her through, Ali’s not in a forgive-and-forget kinda mood.

Will Kade prove that he's the man worthy of Ali’s heart and trust, or will his past sins determine their future?

    A great opener to a new series!! This sweet small town book really draws you in! I can't wait to read everyone's story. Kade and Ali made me laugh and cry throughout their love story. I loved how related they each were and how I felt myself cheering them on throughout the story.
  • Another great series starter

    Another great story from Melanie Shawn. This book gave me all the feels. I laughed and cried (not too much). Ali’s brother died 18 months ago and she is left to co parent her nephews with her brothers best friend who goes MIA after her brothers death. Icing on the cake is she is in love with kade and never told him. When he finally comes back she needs to figure out what she wants and where that will take them. Love this book
  • ADORED Kade and Ali!

    Melanie Shawn absolutely BLEW IT OUT OF THE WATER with Whisper of Love!! I fell in love with Ali and Kade and honestly cannot say enough good things about them! Both Ali and Kade have suffered a great loss. They both have to deal with it, but Kade runs off when Ali needs him most. Can he prove to her that he isn’t the man she thinks he is? Can he make things right? As usual, this book had absolutely everything you could want in a romance, and was a fantastic start to the new series. Cannot wait for the next one!
  • Whisper Lake will be your new favorite series!

    Ali was barely treading water after losing her big brother who was her hero and best friend. His sudden death left her to raise her twin nephews when the man that was supposed to share the responsibility with her went MIA after the funeral. Kade’s MMA training made him a champion, but it never equipped him to fight off the one force beyond his control: his feelings for his best friend’s little sister. He’s sure his demons mean he’s not good enough for her, but he’s going to do everything in his power to conquer them. I have never wanted an HEA for two characters more than I did for Ali and Kade. Both are broken and devastated after the loss and both go about dealing with that loss in very different ways. I loved seeing Ali pick herself up and be there for her two nephews. I also loved seeing Kade face his demons so that he can be the man Ali needs and the role model his best friend’s kids deserve. This book was a real page turner, it will not take you long to read it since it will be impossible to put down. I love that Melanie and Shawn are creating another wonderful place for us as readers to visit and fall in love with. I know what all the Whisper Lake books that are coming will just pull us into this beautiful lake side community that we will all wish is real.

    What a phenomenal start to a new series! Gosh I don't think Melanie Shawn can do wrong in the romance world!!! A great second chance love story that had me totally and completely hooked from the first page. Whisper of Love had a few surprises that I can honestly say I didn't see coming, which made for an even better read! Kade and Ali had the kind of chemistry you can't fake or deny. They belong together, plain and simple. Their route to get there might have been difficult and rocky, but it was sure worth it. A story full of laugh out loud and swoon-worthy moments, friendship, lots of love and sexiness. I highly recommend this one! Happy reading!

    This story. Wow!!! Such an emotional, healing, fun, sexy read!! My heart hurt for Ali. She’s been through the wringer, and she just keeps going. She isn’t catty about it. She’s strong, but also has a vulnerable side, especially when it comes to Kade. Kade has demons in his past he’s trying to heal from. I was so happy to see how he stepped up, and in, when he got his crap together and saw how much stress life was putting on Ali. Add in two teenage boys, and they’ve got their challenges ahead of them. The story was fantastic, and I loved meeting all these characters and can’t wait for the next story in this series!!! It’s definitely a must read!!
  • AH-MAZING!

    AH-MAZING! start to a new Melanie Shawn series! I read it straight through today with breaks only to eat! Kade was WONDERFUL, especially after you found out about his last 18-months. Ali was an absolute sweetheart, nearly at the end of her rope. The best friend's sister angle had a twist in that they were verbal sparring partners from way back, AND they both had feelings that they didn't share with anyone else. The VCR tape was FANTASTIC and made me cry sad and happy tears! The twins are awesome kids. I cannot wait for the next book in the series!
