I wish I liked the story but there was not much I enjoyed about it. What happened to Johan as a child was horrible as was the long term impact it had on his life. The flashbacks of him as a child and hearing from him what was done to him is heartbreaking. Almost as much time was spent in the past as it was in the present.

This is no romance nor passion in this book. When the love making scene occurs between Lou and Johan it was not sexy but rather made me uncomfortable. There was too much time spent on him as an abused child and in the present with his aversion to being touched to be anything else for me. Also Johan's flirting with OW including Eve, Lou's sister, bothered me. Not only did it upset Lou and Eve's boyfriend but I believe that his excessive flirting was a result of his sexually abuse based on what I have read.

My favorite book in the series. Johan has been my favorite character in the series since he swooped in to rescue Eve in book 1. Once they hinted that his cheery, flirtatious demeanor hid a very tormented past, I was hooked. In this story, it delves into that past and it is every bit as heartbreaking as promised. Johan was viciously abused as a very young child and spent many years recovering. The aftermath of Eve's story blows a hole through his coping mechanisms and he finds himself having to cobble the pieces back together with Louise's help. This was a wonderful story and I look forward to learning more about Johan's family in book 4 of the series.

"I have a feeling you are going to be my elixir, my drug."
Surviving Love is book two in the Surviving series. It is the first book I have read by Author Ada Frost. It is a friends to lovers novel like no other.
"No one is ever grateful for me being in their lives, they live to regret it if anything."
We are merely pages in when we begin to get a picture of Chase's family, the dynamics, and sense that some things are not what they seem, especially with his Grandpa...
"My momma had stop coming in my dreams, she didn't call out either. She had completely left me."
The heartbreak I felt at these words is inexplicable. A poor, young boy left alone to manage for himself in some of the most horrid and unforgiving situations. He had no choice in the life he was given, and it seemed only more heartache was to come.
Ellie was the secondary character that gave us the much-needed break.
"...you're like water, you penetrate through the tiny cracks, no matter how hard I fight it, you always win."
Louise (Lou) was the calm for this storm. She was quick-witted and sassy, but was a warm and caring person. Having her own burdens to bear, a change in direction for her life was needed, but the cost of this was in question.
"You're the light I've been desperately seeking. It would kill me to see it fade."
There was everything to love and noting to hate about Surviving Love. Author Ada Frost wrote words that fused my being to the characters. There was not one page that was turned in which this connection was broken. It continued with every word and, it seems, will remain with me for some time. The delicate nature with which critical and crippling past events were told had my emotions at a low.

Oh, I’ve been impatiently waiting for Johan's story, ever since I met Johan in Elemental Fear, the first book in Ada Frost’s Surviving series (each book can be read as a standalone). Johan stole my heart in the first book, and I fell in love with this fun, witty, sexy and beautiful guy. But I also knew Johan had something terrible happen to him during his childhood, and I finally got to find out that secret in Surviving Love. I knew Johan's story was going to be a tragic one, but Frost really tore my heart to pieces. Oh my goodness, how I wanted to jump into this book and save Johan. And that, my fellow readers, is how you know an author has done their job as a storyteller, when the author can make you so passionate about their characters that you become a part of the story.

Johan was able to hide his damaged self by adopting a fun, playboy persona who flirts with all the ladies, but all that changes the night he saves Evelyn. And now Lou, who loves and sees the sweet, tender man for who he really is, doesn't know how to save him. All the scars of Johan's traumatic past from his tormentor has come back to haunt Johan’s mind and soul.

Johan and Lou’s romance is so beautiful. The way Johan loves Lou and the baby she is carrying. Yes, Lou is pregnant with her jerk of a boyfriend's baby, who decided he’s not ready for the whole daddy thing. Johan just takes my breath away with the love he has for Lou's baby who's not even born yet. Yes, Johan is a sweetheart, and that’s also why my heart breaks for him.

I have to toughen my skin when I read Ada Frost novels. She totally shatters my heart, but I would not miss one minute of the tears, the heart break, and the joy she gives me while reading her novels, and the love she gives her characters. I highly recommend Surviving Love.

Loved Lou and Johan's story. Nada did a fantastic job at telling their story. Parts were hard to read. I enjoyed every minute of it. Seeing the emotions that Johan was trying to over come. Wish there was more with Will in the end.
