Always Only You by Chloe Liese Review


Always Only You Chloe Liese | Pub: 8/4/20


“That I deserve love for being exactly who I am. That the person worthy of my love will love all of me.”

After reading the first Bergman Brothers book by Chloe Liese, I immediately know she was going to be an auto-buy author for me. So I preordered the second Bergman Brothers book and it did not disappoint.

Always Only You is about Ren Bergman and Frankie Zeferino. Ren plays professional hockey and Frankie handles all of the team’s social media. Frankie also has two disabilities- Rheumatoid Arthritis and Autism.

This book was faster paced than Only When It’s Us, but the sexual tension was still high because Ren and Frankie aren’t allowed to be together because of their jobs for the same team.

My absolute favorite part of these two Bergman Brothers books is that one main character has a disability. In Only When It’s Us, Ryder has the disability (he is a Bergman) and in Always Only You, Frankie has the disability.

As I said in my Instagram review, I enjoy that a main character has a disability because I think that 1. Representation for disabled people is low in books (also representation of fat people) 2. Many disabled people (and fat people) think that they are unworthy of being loved how they are. Frankie mentions this several times. She feels her disabilities make her a burden and like she shouldn’t be loved. THIS IS NOT TRUE. We all deserve to be loved how God made us.

I highly recommend this series. Book 3 is in the works and I can’t wait to see what Chloe has in store for Freya Bergman and her husband Aiden.

Synopsis (Credit: Goodreads)

Get ready for an emotional ride filled with laughter, longing, and a sweet slow-burn in this sports romance about love’s power not in spite of difference, but because of it.


The moment I met her, I knew Frankie Zeferino was someone worth waiting for. Deadpan delivery, secret heart of gold, and a rare one-dimpled smile that makes my knees weak, Frankie has been forbidden since the day she and I became coworkers, meaning waiting has been the name of my game—besides, hockey, that is.

I’m a player on the team, she’s on staff, and as long as we work together, dating is off-limits. But patience has always been my virtue. Frankie won’t be here forever—she’s headed for bigger, better things. I just hope that when she leaves the team and I tell her how I feel, she won’t want to leave me behind, too.


I’ve had a problem at work since the day Ren Bergman joined the team: a six foot three hunk of happy with a sunshine smile. I’m a grumbly grump and his ridiculously good nature drives me nuts, but even I can’t entirely ignore that hot tamale of a ginger with icy eyes, the perfect playoff beard, and a body built for sin that he’s annoyingly modest about.

Before I got wise, I would have tripped over myself to get a guy like Ren, but with my diagnosis, I’ve learned what I am to most people in my life—a problem, not a person. Now, opening my heart to anyone, no matter how sweet, is the last thing I’m prepared to do.

Always Only You is an opposites-attract, forbidden love sports romance about a nerdy, late-blooming hockey star, and his tough cookie coworker who keeps both her soft side and her autism diagnosis* to herself. Complete with a meddling secretary, tantric yoga torture, and a scorching slow burn, this standalone is the second in a series of novels about a Swedish-American family of five brothers, two sisters, and their wild adventures as they each find happily ever after.
