Julia’s 🎩🎩🎩.5 hat review:
Love Over Logic has a way of just feeding you snippets at a time and keeping you begging for more with each page. Dom and Emilia’s story will hold you tight and not let go. Emilia has been on the run for the last ten years, she wants to be free. An old college crush comes in and offers her all she’s ever wanted, him and freedom. Freedom isn’t as easy as Dom and Emilia think it will be. Dom is hiding from his past, his past catches up with him and puts not only him but the woman he’s loved since college in the crosshairs.
Now while I loved the writing and the plot, the back and forth between Dom and Emilia got tiring after awhile. Emilia wants Dom but doesn’t, Dom wants Emilia but doesn’t. Don’t get me wrong, I understood they were trying to protect each other, it just got tiring after awhile. I enjoyed their progression into love though, and when they finally realized they couldn’t live without each other was a sweet moment.
The action and mystery surrounding the entire story was awesome! I was having a hard time figuring out who was truly good and bad. Dom will steal your heart, he has the whole alpha protector thing down. Emilia’s strong and tough personality will have you loving her as well, she takes no shit and doesn’t show her fear.

pillows out of the way, and then froze. Oh, shit. “What is this?” The
infuriating smirk on his face said he knew exactly what was in the small
lingerie bag he pulled out from under my pillow. Why didn’t I hide it better?
Oh, yeah, because never in a million years did I think Dom would end up in my
room. “Wait. Don’t answer that. What I really want to know is why is my name on

this turning me on? He planted his feet on the carpet and stood, taking his
time. His prowl was a promise that the real Dom would be a thousand
times better than the chargeable device in his hand. “You want me. Why do you
