About AS LONG AS YOU LOVE ME:
Most people dream about getting out of Sharon, Nebraska, but after three years away, Lauren Barrett is coming home. There are the justifications she gives to everyone else—missing her family, losing her college scholarship. And then there’s the reason Lauren can’t admit to anyone: Rob Conrad, her best friend’s older brother.
Football prowess and jaw-dropping good looks made Rob a star in high school. Out in the real world, his job and his relationships are going nowhere. He can’t pinpoint exactly what’s missing until Lauren comes back to town, bringing old feelings and new dreams with her. But he’s the guy that women love and leave—not the one who makes them think of forever.
Though she’s terrified of opening up, Lauren’s ready to take that chance. Because the only thing more important than figuring out where you truly belong is finding the person you were meant to be with.

I loved everything about As Long As You Love Me…everything. After I Want It That Way, I couldn’t wait to read Lauren’s story and see what was going to happen with her best friend Nadia’s brother, Rob.
Ann Aguirre gives us characters that are very relatable and dealing with real life issues. I thought her portrayal of Rob was refreshing and genius. I fell hard for Rob. In appearance Rob has it all going on, the hot, hunky athlete but that hides some unexpected insecurity. Lauren has her own issues that have her back in her hometown. I loved how they each saw into the other beyond what was on the surface.
Ann Aguirre has become an auto-buy for me! I’m looking forward to the next in the 2B trilogy, The Shape of My Heart…can’t wait.
