About Love Under Construction
She hates me.
I can’t say I blame her, in fact, I thought it was best this way.
That was until I realized just how much I really cared for her.
Now all I want to do is protect her.
It wasn’t supposed to be this way.
I hate him.
He’s always been a thorn in my side.
When my life is flipped upside down, and I’m fighting to stay above water, things between us shift, and I begin to question everything I thought I knew about the boy next door.
It wasn’t supposed to be this way. I never should have kissed him. It was only a matter of time.
After all, 425 Madison Avenue is the perfect place to fall in love.
*Each story is completely standalone.

With my mood dampening and all the lovebirds pairing off, I can’t think of a better excuse to get out of here. Clapping Jake on the back, I say my goodbyes and thank the guys for letting me hang with them tonight before taking my sullen ass back to my apartment.
It takes all of my restraint, not to check on Liv when I get back on the fifth floor. It would be so easy to knock on her door and tell her that I’m in love with her. That I’ve loved her for a long time. In my mind, I know it’s no use. My heart doesn’t want to listen.
I pause outside her door and touch a hand to the cold surface like it will somehow connect me to the woman inside.
“Whoa. Dude. What are you doing?” I hear the elevator ding, and Harley’s voice startles me.
“Nothing,” I shake my head and step back.
“Yeah, nothing,” he steps up beside me and shoves me toward our apartment. “Let’s go before you do something stupid.”
I huff. “Like telling her, I love her?”
“Jesus Christ, how much have you had to drink?” He questions.
“Not enough. That’s for sure.”
Harley opens the apartment door, ushering me inside. “I’m going to disagree with you. Drinking isn’t going to solve anything either.”
“Harley, it was six beers. I’m hardly drunk. Just delusional.”
“You might be right, there.” He grabs two bottles of water from the fridge and tosses me one. “When are you going to give up on her, man? Haven’t you had enough rejection?”
“Would you give up on the woman you love?”
Harley looks at me as if I’ve grown two heads. “If she treated me like shit? Pushed me away and said I made her miserable? Uh, yeah. I did; remember?”
I wince. He’s right. And I’m an asshole friend for bringing it up. “Shelia is nothing like Olivia.”
“Maybe. Maybe not. But a man has got to know when to cut his losses. Trust me.”
“It’ll be better when I finish this job and get the hell away from here. Though I feel bad leaving you without a roommate.
BlueSeal’s Review of Love Under Construction
Love under construction by Aubree Valentine is the 6th book in the beloved 425 Madison Series. I can’t believe that we are already on book 6! We only have 3 more to go. Didn’t we just start the series? Grab your coffee and let’s see if Aubree’s book lived up to the reputation of this series.
Olivia is a teacher at an elite New York private school. She escaped the stifling small town in Georgia where she was raised and has barely looked back. Using the small inheritance she received from her grandparents, Olivia purchased a small apartment that she shares with her beloved dog Peaches. Between teaching, her dad being sick, and helping start a school and therapy center for children with special needs, Olivia is struggling to deal with her anxiety and panic attacks. There is only one person who has been able to calm her and he just moved in next door. His company is also building the therapy center. It is really too bad that she hates his sexy as six, well-defined butt.
Olivia has hated Jameson’s guts since the day she was born and rightfully so. Their families appointed him to look after her. A job that he has done very well over the years but, like most boys, he may have gone overboard a few times. Deep down, he has always loved her and would do anything in the world to make her life easier. Now he’s ready to prove to her that he is the man for her.
So…Olivia might be my favorite female character in the series. I work with students with special needs so her love and desire to make a difference in the lives of children with special needs and their families gives her a special place in my heart. My hometown needs a Mason Center! For that matter, every town needs ones. Olivia is also beautifully flawed, she’s from a small town in Georgia, and she graduated from the University of Georgia (GO DAWGS!) She also fights every single day to overcome her anxiety-driven panic attacks.
Aubree Valentine has written a very sweet book that covers issues like the need for specialized therapy centers for children with disabilities, anxiety, loss, and dealing with the reality that man that you hate the most might just be your soul mate. I very happily give Love Under Construction by Aubree Valentine 5 out of 5 propellers.
