What started as a small hunt for something to warm my heart on a cold winter night, something maybe within the seasonal feel, not only led me to this wonderful novel, Love on the Line but Love on a Limb, which started it all for me. I have been quite speechless actually for the words to do proper justice to not only my feelings that I have but those that are provoked while reading the book. I do know for sure that I will not go into details, that is one thing you will need to dive into not just this book, but also Love on a Limb for yourself in order to truly appreciate the journey to be had. Matt and Mikayla will definitely make sure you feel the gambit of emotions though, tears included if you are anything like myself, so you will want to have those comfort items and a box of tissues to keep you company while you read. My only complaint it that this is over, but I am for sure ordering hard copies now so that they can grace my bookshelves and I can hold them and enjoy these beauties whenever I need my emotions ruffled. I can’t wait to see what will come next from Laurie Lewis! Thank you so much for this fantastic read!
Love on the Line by Laurie Lewis
I’ve finally read this story. I’ve been putting it off because the first book was really emotional. This one didn’t disappoint. I actually had tears come down my face as I read this story. So much love in one group. So much hope and faith. Mikaela is a very strong woman. She stood by Matt through everything never giving up or losing faith. Life is full of surprises and unfortunate events. The author did a really great job laying this story out and building up your possibilities. Almost made me wish that life really worked like they do in books.
Hands down, this emotional roller coaster is worth every single emotion you will experience. I simply adored this book and these characters. The story is so well developed I found myself reading the last page before I knew it. Just a fantastic book and series. Loved it.

I love this book. It brings so much emotion and I found myself crying in parts. It is a sweet romance story that shows you how strong love can be when life takes a bad turn and beliefs in miracles are a must. Matt and Mikaela are great characters that have been through so much and it was great watching them grow throughout their story. This author has created a story that I couldn’t put down until the end. I must say it left me with an emotional hangover, I loved it, a must read!

I will start this review with an excerpt of my review for Love On A Limb…..
“I have read so many books this year, and in my life. Ive many times read and been touched by a book and claimed that it was my favorite for that year or whatever. I can honestly, straight from the heart say that NO BOOK has ever touched me the way this book has. Books often grip me and take my emotions on a ride but this one, this one will hold on forever. Im praying I’ll someday find that she has a paperback of this book because I need this in my life and on my shelf.”
I just finished Love On The Line and reading the acknowledgments at the end is where I will start….Dear Author….your worries of falling short were unneeded…I will not say you bypassed Love On A Limb because that still sits proudly at the top of my favorites of all time, what this addition to that story did was just add a continuation of those same feelings. There are many books I’ve read in my life that do deserve a different category then the rating max we are allowed but these books sit in a category even above that in my mind.
Thank you for keeping this so so real and making me feel these emotions so deeply. I am blessed with this kind of love in my life which made my feelings and understanding of these stories that much more powerful. The care you took in forming all of these words is not even explainable by someone like me that doesn’t have the same way with words.
I’ve read MANY of this authors books and I won’t take away from how much I loved all of them but this story completely knocks me out…I’m not even going into the storyline, I’m praying that anyone that reads this review will go back and read my first review and will take my advice and pick up BOTH of these books…please do not read this one without reading the first…I will usually give in and say you could read this out of order, but not in this case…don’t do it..trust me.
I could go on for days, but will end here with a sincere heartfelt thanks to this author. You seriously have set the bar high and I can’t imagine where you will go next but I do know I’ll be the first in line when you release it.
***sigh*** I hate this is over but can’t wait to read them again and again.

“Whenever love is on the line, we’ll always choose us.”
It was an easy promise for Matt and Mikaela Grayken to make. After all, Matt fell in love with Mikaela the first time he saw her across a room, serving her cancer patients. Mikaela crossed an ocean to find Matt’s birth sister Kate, whose stem cells could save his life. That’s the kind of love they share.
In their quest to defy the limits of Matt’s health and return a bit of the good they’ve known, they embrace grand, miraculous opportunities. But these opportunities bring new stress that threatens Matt’s health while also entwining the Graykens in the lives of complicated people who will challenge their bond, putting to test the promise they made, to choose each other when love is on the line.
Love on the Line, Great Expectations Love Stories: The Graykens, Book Two, is the highly anticipated sequel to Love on a Limb.
