Excellent paranormal romance. Perfect book for curling up on the couch with a mug of hot cocoa.

If you are looking for a sweet romance with a touch of 'Lifetime' movie moment, this is the book for you :) To be honest, I had put off my review for this book for about a month now - I liked the story, the writing was good, it moved along at a very good pace... but I still feel like there was something missing - and I do not know how to put that feeling into typed words here, sigh... The story starts with sweethearts, Carol and Ted, how they met, fall in love and then die tragically together on their wedding day... Many, many years go by and we meet Emma and James. They meet and there is an instant familiarity and connection to each other. They just know that they are meant to be together. I really love how Wilk was able to create the 'love-at-first' sight for both couples without making it feel like it was impossible or too soon. However, there is a twist to the story that keeps Emma and James from being together - no spoilers here! This is where it gets to be like a 'Lifetime' type of movie for me - I don't mean that in a bad way at all! I liked it very much :) For me, it was a bit predictable, but I don't mind that at all.The supporting characters turned into my favorites too! Emma's best friend, maid and butler - who would have thought that you could love every good character in a book! and hate the one that you're suppose to hate, like a lot, lol! The only problem that I had was that I really wished that the connection to Emma and James' past lives had been tied into the story a lot more - there were a handful of 'mentions' here and there, but not enough for me, I wanted more of that! And just when I thought that the story had ended, I noticed that there were too many pages leftover - I actually forgot about Carol and Ted, and why Emma and James wanted to be together... this is the part that I don't know how to explain, I'm just going to leave it that I got too into the main part of the story, and leave it at that. The ending is truly the most sweetest ending I have ever read in a long time! I enjoyed this and I think that anyone who loves a quick romantic read will enjoy it too :)

I really enjoyed this book, it was a quick read but it had a good story. It brought on a lot of emotions and made me hold my breath every once in a while. If you are looking for a good romance story, this is a good book for you! The only complaint that I had with it was that it was confusing to understand how the past and the present stories were intertwined. I didn't undertand that part of the story too well, but all in all I really enjoyed it!

Evokes a Wide Range of Emotions This is a story that explains love at first sight. Have a hankie ready for the tragedy at the first of the book. It’s emotional and real, but absolutely necessary for the rest of the story. The scene afterwards was a good buffer and I knew I was in good hands for this sentimental ride. Wilk pulls off drama so realistically with much of the story being told through dialogue, which I like. Her word choices show easy to picture character reactions, like having one of them “leaning back in exaggerated attention”. I have to say that eavesdropping on Emma and Craig’s arguments brought me back to memories of marital unbliss, —so well that I became more invested in Emma finding a solution and rooted for her. I knew there was room for Emma, to grow, when she said to a friend, “I’m married Olivia. I took vows. No one said marriage would be easy.” Although Emma prided herself in doing the moral and right thing, she had to immerse herself in life’s gray areas long enough to realize that doing what’s right for ourselves is what brings happiness and may not even resemble our preconceived ideas of a moral and right thing. All the characters were very different from each other and easy to follow. My favorite was Emma’s super rich and flamboyant friend, Olivia. I’d love for this author to write a whole book on her. The dialogue and reactions written for her were wild and fun. Even my favorite line came from her. There was a rather interesting event (I’ll not spoil it here) and she closed the scene with the perfect line for the occasion which was: “How much for something tasteful?” I Love, love, love Olivia! At times I grew impatient with Emma not making her decisions soon enough, but it did play true for a conflicted character. The ending had a great tie-in with the beginning and was a pleasant surprise. This read was a good study of my own reactions which told me a lot. I recommend this book.

Beautiful heartwarming story. LOVE UNFINISHED by DARIAN WILK is a lovely tale of two soul mates finding each other in their current life and the obstacles they face coming together as they were meant to be. If you are a lover of romance like I am, you will thoroughly enjoy this book. We meet Carol and Ted in the beginning of the book and fall instantly in love with both of them. Unfortunately for the reader, Carol and Ted have a tragic ending. Yep. I cried. Fortunately for the reader, we get to meet them again as Emma and James, both of which have some serious baggage to contend with. Throughout the book, I found myself rooting for Emma and James, but I never knew if they would be able to overcome all the obstacles in their way to find true happiness with each other. I was pleasantly surprised by the ending of this book. There was a twist I was not expecting at all. If you enjoy romance with a touch of paranormal thrown in, you are going to love this book as much as I did. There were some grammatical errors occasionally throughout this book, but the story being told was so good they just didn't bother me. I was hooked and couldn't put it down. This book had all the elements a really great romance should have and I highly recommend it. I can't wait to read more from this author.

This was a great story. The characters are so real. That Craig was rotten - I loved hating him. Even though I didn't agree with some of Emma's earlier decisions, I have cared about women like her. She is very real and at times my heart broke for her. If you're a sucker for a love story with a sentimental ending than this book is for you

Love Unfinished is a touching story of eternal love and finding your soul mate against all odds. In the beginning of the book, you meet the main characters as Carol and Ted. A tragic accident on their wedding day ends their lives, but they have not finished their love story. We meet them again as Emma and James. They don't remember their former lives and have barriers to coming together. However, after meeting again in this second life, they have an instant, unexplainable attraction to each other. This story explores the concept of what someone would do to be with their one true love. I was worried it wasn't going to come together, but then it does get wrapped up nicely in the end. I only wish the connection from the previous life had been developed a little more. Also, the copy I read had quite a few grammatical errors, but I was assured this was simply a problem with that version that has now been corrected. Overall, this is a superb story for the "hopeless" romantic that (hopefully) lives in us all to some degree. (This is a reprint from my blog Krazy Book Lady.)
