Need to Love You is the sixth book in The Love Series by Megan Smith. This is the final book in the series and focuses on Chloe and Jackson. It is an emotional and moving story about a couple experiencing marital issues. It’s one that everyone can relate to, regardless of your current situation.
The main characters, Chloe and Jackson, are currently married with a young son.
Throughout the story, we get glimpses into their history: Chloe had strict parents who expected a lot from her; Jackson was her first love.
When Chloe finds out she is pregnant at the end of her senior year, Jackson steps up to the plate, but her parents abandon her.
As a stay-at-home mom married to Jackson, Chloe is dependent on him for everything—and it puts enormous pressure on both of them.
I really enjoyed Chloe and Jackson’s story. They are two people who were brought together by circumstances beyond their control who drifted apart and lost focus on their relationship. The resentment is strong on both parts, so neither is completely blameless in the breakdown of their marriage.
There is a roller coaster of emotions as they separate and try to remember why they fell in love in the first place. Each plays a game of ‘what if’ throughout the book.
Watching them work through their emotions and expectations was interesting. I thought that seeing them each grow up and gain some independence during the separation made reading about their journey worthwhile.
While I enjoyed the story of Chloe and Jackson, I did have a couple of minor problems with the book. The characters are a little one-dimensional and lack depth. I had a hard time picturing them in my mind’s eye and it made it difficult to connect with them at first.
Overall, it was a great end to the series and included bits and pieces of the characters from the previous books. The entire Cahill family is loyal, loving, and I enjoyed getting to know them.
Thank you for the advanced copy of NEED TO LOVE YOU by Megan Smith. All opinions are my own.
