LoveSick by T.L Smith and Hot Mess by Emily Goodwin

Title: Lovesick
Author: T.L. Smith
Genre: Contemporary Romance
I couldn’t do broken. 
Broken is what he was. 
Broken is what I will always be.
To his eyes, that held so much despair, I couldn’t look for long. 
To his fist, that clenched so tightly, like he was locking away the sorrow. 
To his lips, that never uttered a word, from the years of heartbreak. 
And despite it all, I couldn’t stay away from him. 
It was like he was drowning in an ocean, and I wanted to grab his face, and whisper to his lips, “Don’t forget to breathe.”
This was how I fell for a man. A man who was so lovesick, I was afraid he would drown me in that same ocean he was lost in.

Title: Hot Mess
Series: Love is Messy Duet: Book One
Author: Emily Goodwin
Genre: Contemporary Romance
My life is a hot mess.
Single, working, and raising two daughters, it’s a miracle I get us up, dressed, and fed every morning. Forget about dating—nobody’s got time for that. Even if love hadn’t left me jaded, I’m not settling for anything less than perfect this time around. 
Lucky for me, the perfect man just happens to work in my office. But there’s just one small problem: he’s my boss, and is totally off limits. But hey, if it’s meant to be, it’ll find a way, right?
Then a night out with friends turns into a night in with the walking-talking bad boy cliche of a bartender. It’s just one night. No harm, no foul, right?
Except when the hot bartender turns out to be my boss’s trouble-making brother, who wants more than just one night with me. The more I resist the spark between us, the more I find myself wanting him too. Which puts me in the middle of what could be the biggest sibling rivalry of the century.
Life is messy. 
And love? 
Well, love is even messier.

Holy tear jerker! TL you typically smother me and have me weeping with your books, but I think this one is by far the worst. Days. I do mean Days later and my mind is still left baffled and I am left wondering how the heck do I write a review for this without giving away any spoilers. Lovesick had me sick alright (in a good reading way, not bad, but definitely weeping) and holding out hope for a HEA until we get torn down again, uhh!! "Don't forget to breathe!" while reading this book you have been warned. 
This story focus' on three main characters per say, Khol, Keegan and Macca. Broken is the main word in this story. Your heart will hurt and just when you think it is starting to heal the best way it will ever heal after losing your one true love, you are smacked down again. BAM! Keegan may have been the lovesick to Khol, but you broke us again (crying over here). It was like Deja Vu all over when you gave us the fight of our life with this sick twist you threw at us, but it wouldn't be a TL book if she didn't torture us right?! 
Macca the key player in the middle of this whole story. You will find out how and why after reading this. Think this is the best way to describe it without giving away spoilers. My suggestion is to just read this book and weep along with us after we fought to overcome the past that Khol and Keegan endured with their story. You will be taken on a journey of love, friendship, healing and passion. You may get bruised along the way, but you will heal your heart the best way anyone can after enduring this painful/heartfelt story. Having this told from various POV helped us connect to the characters and story so much more than from one POV. This book is a standalone and you do not have to read any of TL's other books to read this book. You might have just found a go to author without reading any synopsis when it comes to her books. Like me!
