Growing up wasn't easy for Lottie. As an only child with self-absorbed parents, she soon learned that the one person she could depend upon was herself. A brave face and defensive self-preservation kept her strong.
Then Lottie met Spike.
He didn't see her little habits as frustrating; he embraced them.
He didn't run from her fiery temper and sharp tongue; he admired her for her tenacity.
He loved her and she loved him.
And somehow, despite Lottie's reluctance to let her guard down, Spike King managed to burrow his way in to her gentle heart and penetrate that steely armour she surrounded herself with.
Then one night it all changed.
A family vendetta.
A life shattering hit and run.
A moment that would change their lives forever.
Will their love be strong enough to pull them back together?
Or will the damage from that one fateful night keep them apart for ever?
Authors note: Spike and Lottie's story can be read as a stand alone.
However, to appreciate their personalities and the journey they have been on to get to this book, you should really read Holding Aces (The Kingdom 1) and High Stakes (The Kingdom 2).

I have waited for this book for sometime know. I so wanted to see what was going to happen with Spike and Lottie.
You have to read the first 2 books in order to get Lovestrong. You get the feel of Lottie and Spike in those books. You also know what happened to Spike in book 2.
With Lottie doing everything she can to help Spike after his accident he just pushes her away. Lottie has to find her way and in doing so she leaves. She has to find herself before her and Spike can move forward.
Spike knows Lottie deserves more than what he is giving. Pushing her away is just breaking his heart. He is being the bigger person as he see's it. Once Lottie leaves Spike is miserable. He snaps at everyone and everything. He feels he was dealt the wrong card in live. Instead of living with his condition he is rotting.
Weeks go by and Lottie finally realizes that Spike is meant for her. She found a friend in Torran. I mean I could have seen them going further but every little thing reminded Lottie of Spike.
Spike spends his time actually dealing with his accident. He did this after seeing a little boy wanting more in life than being in a wheelchair. That pushed Spike to want more not just for himself but for Lottie as well.
I kind of felt like the book was rushed a little. Like I said you see how Spike and Lottie are in the other 2 books. Once Lottie returns everything falls into place. They don't wait another minute to be with each other. Could we have gotten a little glimpse of years that came? Did they have kids? Did they stay in the hotel or buy their own house?
I liked Lovestrong. I would highly recommend all 3 books.
Holding Aces (The Kingdom, #1)
High Stakes (The Kingdom, #2)
“Stupid. Beautiful. Girl. How did you ever think you could be free?” The last words I heard before the darkness took me and my dreams were shattered I was on my way to having it all. Friends, family and a future. Everything I had wished for but never thought possible. Denham King showed me just how good life could be. A life where love and happiness were within reach. Almost. I should have known it would never last. My past is a dark, damp cloud, that has seeped into my skin and left a cold promise. A promise of hurt and pain. A promise of a long, hard fight, where the stakes are high and the risks threaten lives. When your world gets thrown in all directions, and your dreams for the future are torn from your grasp; how do you go on? Can I fight the demons that haunt me? Can love save me from fate’s cruel path?
