New Release + Triple Review: If You Say So by Lani Lynn Vale


Gabriel Luca Maldonado, III and Francesca Leandra Solomon were meant to be. They were so in love that everybody prayed for what they had.
Everything was glorious. They would get married, have children and live a perfect life. She would be a doctor in the emergency room once she finished her doctorate, and he would be a badass Navy SEAL and save people for a living. 
But then Luca is deployed across the world, and per military regulations, Frankie isn’t allowed to follow.
They’ve overcome a lot in their short relationship, and they can overcome this, too. Two years was a piece of cake. She’d finish her schooling and wait for him. And when he finally returned home, they would marry.
But two months into Luca’s deployment, the unthinkable happens, and Frankie is left alone and heartbroken, knowing that she’ll have to face the rest of life without Luca at her side.
Fast forward two years, and Frankie is exactly where her fiancé’s father left her, in a pit of despair that she has no hope of ever finding her way out of.
She lives life one second at a time, depressed and alone, hoping tomorrow won’t hurt like today.
She finds a job, moves, and hopes that the nightmares won’t swallow her whole.
But just as she thinks that she’s getting better, one of her nightmares walks through the doors of her ER, and that nightmare has a name.
Gabriel Luca Maldonado, III. In the flesh.
Also healthy and whole, and definitely no longer missing.
Sadly, it only takes her a half a second to realize that the man that left her isn’t the same man that returned.
The old one wanted her. The new one? Well, he’s definitely not interested anymore.

Julia’s 🎩🎩🎩🎩🎩 hat review:

If You Say So is such an emotional read. Lani Lynn Vale ripped my heart out. Then she slowly pieced it back together again. The emotions of hope, loss, love, devastation, and sadness just flow off the pages. Frankie and Riel have both been through so much, yet all that pain was worth it. As always I was hooked to the pages and didn’t want to put my kindle down for a second. I found myself on the edge of my seat waiting for the shoe to drop. I’m so in love with If You Say So!

Britt’s 🎩🎩🎩🎩🎩 hat review:

You know when you read a book and you’re all 😭😳😱🤯😍😍🤣😳😭😍 and you really want to like yell at everyone to go read it IMMEDIATELY so you have some one to go through that emotional roller coaster with you because you can’t say a word about it until they’ve read it too and you feel like you’re going to explode with all the feelings ready to burst out of you? *takes a huuuuuge breathe after that ridiculously long run on sentence* THAT is what If You Say So is.
Gaaaaaah this couple. Their story is one that has you hooked right away with the emotions and just keeps hooking you deeper and deeper as feelings grow. I can’t (seriously CANNOT) explain how incredible these two are together because I have no words to really put their love into perspective. What I can say is that this is one of my all time favorites from Lani, and seeing as how she could write a grocery list and make it incredible that’s saying something.

Heather’s 🎩🎩🎩🎩🎩 hat review:

How can I put into words just how much I loved this story. Lani Lynn Vale you really out yourself out there with this story. I feel like it was absolute perfection. The subject matter is real and you have the uncanny ability to pull the readers in and have them feel just what the characters feel.
I will warn you your emotions will come into play when reading this book so be earned a box of tissues may or may not be required while reading. Frankie and Luca define what the word soulmate really means. They had their whole lives ahead of them when the unthinkable occurs. Now fast forward a few years when out of the blue something extraordinary happens. How can you have strong feelings for someone, when the person is not even sure if who they are themselves.Throw in the added twist and a few strange occurrences and we get If You Say So. I know my review may be vague, but you absolutely need to read this book to understand what I’m try to convey in this review.
