A spin-off from the best-selling series Something So comes a whole brand of crazy & wild love stories.


Never fall in love.
That was my motto, and I was sticking to it.
Having my heart broken once was enough, and I never wanted to do it again.
He was supposed to be a one-night stand, the only thing I do.
One rule shouldn't be so hard to follow, but then I went back for seconds, then thirds. 

After that, I lost count of the number of times I lost myself in his arms.
When I wasn't paying attention, my guard slipped.


They call me Private Mark for a reason—my whole life is a secret.
For two years, we danced around each other until I got her right where I wanted her ... under me.
Now that I had her, I wasn't letting her go. I thought we were on the same page.
I thought we were building something great.

Boy, was I ever wrong.

I had no idea that while I was falling in love, she was trying to convince herself we were temporary.
She thought I'd walk away.

She was wrong.

Now it's time to convince her she wants us too and to show her that the crazy, wild thing we have ... This Is Love.

    So I'll admit I had mixed feelings about Vivienne before starting this one. She just seemed a bit out there in all the previous books. With that being said, I do want you to know I loved her as a side character. I just wasn't sure how she would be as the main character. She was awesome! The prologue explains everything perfectly! Her and Mark are great together. She needs a take charge Alpha like his to get her 'into line'. HA! Like anyone could control her. This is a must read! It can be read on its own, but you should really read them in order to know all the characters. At a minimum, you should read Matthew's and Karrie's story since you see them a lot in this one. (Vivienne and Karrie are best friends.)
  • A must read!!

    AMAZING! That’s pretty much sums up this book. Vivienne is one of my all time favorite heroines, and her story was beyond perfect! There couldn’t be a better hero for her than Mark. He’s sexy, alpha, and swoony all rolled in to one. He knew exactly what she needed, and didn’t give up on her. I loved catching up with the secondary characters in this series. I’ve fallen in love with most of them in their own books, so getting updates while seeing Viv fall was just the icing on the cake. The epilogue was amazing, and had me teary, realizing we are leaving these amazing characters. My only hope is Natasha doesn’t have us leaving them for good and we see some of them in upcoming books!!! An amazing read I would highly recommend!
  • OMGGGG so good!

    All. The. Stars!!!! I know I say this with every book Natasha Madison writes, but...This Is Love is not only hands down my favorite book of hers, but her best work to date. It is the third book in the This Is series and can absolutely be read as a stand-alone. This book has everything I want in a romance novel. It was sweet, hot, charming, and is full of characters that you can’t help but fall in love with. I also laughed out loud so many times! I have loved Vivienne since I met her in the previous books and couldn’t wait to get her story. She has sworn off relationships and is a love ‘em and leave ‘em type of girl ever since getting her heart broken. But when Markos comes into her life, things start to change… Markos was EVERYTHING!!! Seriously the perfect hero in every single way. He has so much going for him that he could have any woman he wants. But he wants Vivienne. Too bad she doesn’t believe in relationships… Gahhhh-I really have no words to explain how much I loved this book. Ms. Madison’s growth as a writer is evident in This Is Love. Her imagination is out of this world and I am so looking forward to reading the next book! Highly recommend reading!!!

    OH HOW THE MIGHTY FALL! I have honestly loved getting to know Vivienne throughout the past books and I couldn’t wait for her story because I knew it would be a doozy and Natasha did not disappoint! While we know from previous books how open and vulgar Vivienne is, in this book we get to understand what has brought her to be that way and why she’s written off love. Markos is a player for the hockey team but also has his own thriving business on the side. He prides himself on keeping his life extremely private in all personal aspects. After two years of biding his time and attraction towards Vivienne, Markos finally decides to shoot his shot, and he turns into her unraveling. What starts as one night for Vivienne ends up turning into spending all their time together and even when they aren’t together they are thinking of each other. Unbeknownst to Vivienne, who is a total commitment-phobe, develops a relationship with Markos, and when she figures it out she reacts as such. While I love Vivienne’s character, I really enjoyed and loved Markos! The things he did to win her over really added to his character, and I honestly don’t think I can look at a fish the same way again! Through all the ups and downs I’m so glad this pair both got their HEA with each other, and the epilogue really just ties it all together and puts everything full circle. Can’t wait to see if this series continues! I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
  • Oui your going to love this!

    This is Love is the third book in this amazing series. And let me let you Vivienne and Mark did not disappoint! This book has everything a great book should have. It has a great storyline, amazing characters, romance, sizzle and a fish. Yup you’ll see :) Vivienne has been in several books throughout this series and I fell more in love with her with every book. I couldn’t wait for her to get her turn at her HEA, and I knew it was going to be epic. And it was. Mark is the goalie for the NY Stingers and he is a successful business man as well. Once he meets Vivienne he knows he needs to get to know her. But Vivienne sees things very differently until one meeting changes everything. You can’t go wrong with this fun and touching romantic tale. Enjoy this captivating page turner!
  • My favorite of them all!

    We waited years for Vivienne’s story and it was so good! Private Mark was just the man she needed to show her what was possible. The scenes with the fish were definitely a highlight!
  • All the stars!!

    So many stars!!! Vivienne's story is everything I hoped it would be and more. It is tres tres magnifique! She is so sassy on the outside with a vulnerability I had know idea lived within her. Natasha Madison has outdone herself if that's even possible! I have loved this French vixen throughout this series but now I have a total girl crush on her. And can we talk about Mark, or should I say PM, oooo la la. He is so totally swoonworthy and irresistible!!!! They both realize that they can have everything they never knew they wanted and what a journey of discovery that is for them. Funny, sweet, sassy, emotional, sexy, and so steamy and if that's not enough..............................there's a fish. And not just a fish but a storyline surrounding what is definitely the deeper meaning behind the fish. I absolutely loved everything about this book!!!!!
  • Amazing Love Story!

    I’ve loved every book I’ve read by Mrs Madison. I’ve been a fan of her for a long time. But I confess..I was afraid of Vivienne. And that was me being judgmental. THIS BOOK WAS EVERYTHING!! My favorite by Natasha Madison. I’ve had so many emotions when reading this book. I’ve cried..laughed (a lot) and I’ve swooned. The chemistry between Vivienne and Mark was so freaking hot. And the banter between them was awesome. They were perfect for each other. Loved Vivienne. Her voice, her style, her sarcasm and her loyalty. She is who she is and makes no apologies for that. I love that about her. She’s sworn of relationships and one night stands is all she does, but one night with Mark and everything changed. Markos..he was the opposite of Vivienne and perfect for her. He is a very private person. That’s why his nickname is Private Mark (PM). He was perfect!! He’s now one of my new book boyfriend. The presents and the romantic dates..swoon... Mark knew what he wanted, and he wanted Vivienne. For two years he wanted Vivienne before he finally got a date with her. And the chemistry and the sexy time between them...Holly Hotness!!! It was so awesome to see Vivienne fall in love and she so deserved it. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ STARS!!
