Cute story

The caracters are well enough, considering it is the first novel she has written. Half way through the novel you know how it is going to end, bit it was very easy to read, actually i just started reading it today and finished it. I will keep an eye out for more books ...
The caracters are well enough, considering it is the first novel she has written. Half way through the novel you know how it is going to end, bit it was very easy to read, actually i just started reading it today and finished it. I will keep an eye out for more books from her. This has been a fun book, and at 650 pages, it has been quite the quick read, i don't know if it is the Hollywood theme, the "imposible" romance or the guessing of what is coming, but i enjoyed very much.

Hmmmm

The writing was good, even though overly detailed descriptions at the beginning really irritated me. (If it's so important that there's an inter-racial romance going here, just say so. Could you please not spend a paragraph waxing poetic about the color of each & every character's skin, please? They're people. They're human. Let's move on now.)

The over-description did end quickly, thank goodness!

This would be the first romance novel I've ever read that dealt with adultery between the lead characters, and I don't think it was handled at all realistically.
The male lead's dedication to his marriage, I appreciated.
The female lead's pain and desire to not betray her children or husband even through attraction to the guy - well done.

However, when they do finally fall into an affair, and decide to continue no matter what....
It all wraps up neat & tidy & nobody gets hurt because, well, they're all true soul mates, after all! There are no lasting consequences. There are no problems for the children. There is no lasting emotional pain, and there will be no more infidelities. Sorry, but that is NOT the way the world works.

    Enjoyable

    I enjoyed this book. This work of FICTION was well done. I realize some have difficulty with the story line...get over it. This is an awesome first book for the author. Good for you!

    I absolutely LOVED this book! I had to read it again! No one agr

    I absolutely LOVED this book! I had to read it again! No one agrees with having an affair. However, the characters were so well detailed, that you completely understood why it happened. It was wrong, yes! However, found myself wanting them to be together, and that surprised me. It played out like a movie in my head and that's due to great writing. I really hope that the author writes a sequel to Torn. I don't want to give away the ending but if it could pick up from there. I think there is more of a story there. Hopefully, that will be explored.

    very good book

    I thought the book was realistic. It was well written. I didnt like that she cheated on her husband and didnt woman up and tell him until 8 months after it started and that was because she didnt have a choice. Overall this is a great book to read and i gibe it 5 stars

    Couldnt put it down

    A touching story. A tough topic but ended neatly. Even though as others have said its not how the world works this is a fictional story and she does a good job at giving the ending everyone can sigh happily to.

    Entertaining read

    Quality material wrapped in a fun read. It's fiction and a tricky romance, and not an epic, so one must take that in stride. Still, not at all bad for a debut effort. And it's free. What's not to like? Recommend. :-)
