One Positive Negativity has a great plot. I was taken by how D.D Lorenzo wrote this book with each main characters POV. In this book you will be able to have the chance to meet Aria Cole and Declan Sinclair.  Aria Cole is recovering from the loss of her beloved father, she decides to spend some quiet time on her aunt and uncle's beach house. This is where all her happy memories are and she needs to feel close to her father and away from everything else. Declan Sinclair, is a male model, being an international model and getting up in age, he needs to re-think his future. He always liked to spend time at the beach, and when he had the chance to buy the house he always like, he didn't waste any time. Declan keep seeing this mistery woman walking early in the morning and he decided he wanted to get to know her. When Declan and Aria met each other the instant chemestry was palpable, and they let their attraction run wild and free and became a couple.  But when tragedy hits them their love is put to a major test. Can it survive or will it brakes them apart? I found this book interesting and I recommend it.

Book Worms review left by Melissa a Book Worms Reviewer, thank you Melissa.  We gave this book 3.5 stars.  Synopsis Gorgeous, worldly, beautiful Declan Sinclar is a supermodel with his rugged good  looks, tattoos and basically good guy is tired of his lifestyle. Where a  beautiful woman could be found on his arm for any event and one in his bed for  the night, he's ready to settle down and have a quiet life on the beach. While  enjoying some solis, he discovers a sad, beautiful woman everyday on the beach.  Why is she so sad and how can I get to know her? Aria Cole is heartbroken after the loss of her father. Owning her own business  has given her the luxury to stay at her calming place, the beach, for a while.  When she discovers a breath-taking man that wants to get to know her she is not  really sure what to do. Why would a supermodel want her, she's nothing  spectacular. So she thinks anyway. Embark on this journey with Declan and Aria as they discover each other. Get to  know the people and their relationship, but know that not everyone is happy  about it. Can Declan and Aria come together to win their love or will it be  ruined by a devious woman? My view... I struggled with this book a little bit. While I am all for getting to know one  another, this just seemed like a lot of internal dialogue. The story started out  slow, not because they didn't immediately jump into a relationship (I actually  appreciated that) but because timelines didn't add up. First it had only been a  few weeks but then the next page you felt like a few months. It was weird.I felt  like the characters stories were two predictable. Declan has to deal with his lifestyle inflicting pain on an already insecure  girl, but instead of addressing issues, he just pushed them aside and somehow in  the book they weren't issues anymore. The story started getting better towards the end and I was actually looking  forward to reading it. The writing was stiff and there were multiple errors but  for an ARC I tried not to think too much about them. Sadly to say I will only  give this book 3.5 Stars but reading this is a necessity for book 2.

I literally picked up and put down this book 3 times this weekend. I could not get past the first few pages but after I read the entire first chapter, I really could not understand why I didn't immediately fall in love with Declan Sinclair. I mean his name alone sounds hot and not to mention he is a hot superstar male model. As I mentioned before Declan is a super hot model that has everything going for him in the right direction. Since he is close to turning 30, he finds himself thinking about his future and what will come after his modeling career is over. He decides to slow down and has found a place near the ocean that he can call home. He is now taking time off from his hectic modeling career schedule and spending most of his time there. As a model his morning routine required for him to be an early riser. One day as he was watching the ocean view from his porch he came across a woman whom he describes as "his definition of beautiful". Aria Cole is a strong independent business woman who is grieving the loss of her father; she is also taking time off and living near the ocean where she can mourn her loss and find serenity. The attraction between the Aria and Declan is instant. Throughout the book their immense love overcomes almost every obstacle.  It seems that they might get their happy ever after, which is until the persistence of a certain someone manages to bring them apart. Due to a misunderstanding their love is put to a test.  Declan does not think Aria can handle what is going on because of what she and her mother went thru in the past. He decides to push her away, making himself bitter in return. Aria and Declan are now broken up and the villain is victorious or so it appears. We are left with the hope of proof that can point them towards the person who is responsible for what they are going thru. The story is told in both Declan and Aria's P.O.V which I found was awesome because it is always interesting to know what the hot guy is thinking not just what the female thinks (team Declan). I am anxiously waiting on the next installment so we can see our couple reunite, I hate cliffhangers!!! ***ARC was provided by the Author in exchange for an honest review***

Declan Sinclair is a male fashion model at the height of achievement in his industry. He's handsome, rich, has everything a person could ever want. Well, almost. Despite all the outward trappings of success, Declan feels an emptiness inside. He's reached a point where the money, partying, moving among the glitterati, being an object of the tabloids and paparazzi has lost its allure. He wants more, something substantial, something just out of his reach. But where can he find this? He's not even sure what it is he wants or needs. How will he know where to find it? Enter Aria Cole, an ordinary woman with extraordinary talents. Where Declan is accomplished, sure of himself, and accomplished, Aria is quiet, unassuming, and in deep pain. Yes, she's brilliant in her own right. She has talents that are truly remarkable. But the two are polar opposites. They meet by mere chance on a beach far from the bright lights and big-city atmosphere of New York City where Declan normally lives. That meeting sets in motion a chain of events that has the ability to change everything for so very many people. But Aria's so unsure of herself. Her pain clouds her vision. Can she move past her grief and heartache? Is it possible for her to see beyond Declan's outward perfection to the very real human beneath? Will she be able to put aside her own feelings of inadequacy and fear? And what of Declan? Is he truly ready to move beyond the shallow trivialities of life in the fashion industry? He has dreams. Is he truly ready to put everything on the line to make them come true? But there are those who don't want change of any sort. Some want to keep Declan's career just as it is, while others don't want Aria to change her life's course either. Who are these people? What are their motives? And just how far will they go to get what they want? As events unfold, lives are changed in ways never imagined. There are unknown threats and complete uncertainty surrounding all. Will Declan, Aria, their friends, family, and co-workers find a way through the dangers threatening them? Or will the unknown destroy the lives these people have worked so hard for? D.D. Lorenzo is a completely new author for me. I wasn't sure what to expect from this novel, although she came highly recommended as an author. The storyline is thought-provoking and well-plotted. It's not an ordinary romance. It's also an in-depth and captivating look at the lives and relationships of people from entirely different worlds, their personalities, and what happens when opposite worlds collide. Ms. Lorenzo impressed me with the realism and profoundness of the characters she created. The development of the relationship between the two main characters was alternately uncertain, hopeful, poignant, and heartrending. There's not just romance but mystery, danger, uncertainty, and unexpected twists and turns throughout the story. The name of the series says it all. It plumbs the depths of human emotion in every way. I found it to be a totally unpredictable book, and I loved that I never knew what was going to happen next. It's engrossing, deeply emotional, thoughtful, detail-oriented, and, most of all, a true journey into the human experience. I am very eager to read the next book in this series which will be released soon. I highly recommend Positive Negativity. Thank you, D.D. Lorenzo, for providing such a deeply emotional, enjoyable, and satisfying reading experience! Thanks for reading my review and happy reading!

Aria has come to her Uncle and Aunts beach how to recoup after her fathers’ death. She spends her days on the beach in a spot where her family was once whole and happy. That’s where she meets Declan. Declan has been watching Aria on the beach for weeks now and she intrigues him more than he ever thought. He thinks she’s beautiful in every way the model industry wouldn’t. She’s not thin or pale or dull. She’s curvy and vibrant and after each encounter with each other they’ve fallen for one another. Sadly it can’t end there because life is going to get complicated when Declan’s studio gets off the ground and not everyone will survive. Aria and Declan were interesting characters. Aria is a lot stronger and honest of a character than she thinks but I enjoyed how she knew her flaws and still managed to remain confident. Declan is all alpha male when it comes to loving Aria. They’re love is a beautiful part of this book that I couldn’t help but love. I loved the cliffhanger ending and the last few characters are what truly pulled me into the story. I am super excited about the next book. They mystery and all the secrets surrounding Declan and Aria’s families will hopefully be revealed. I can’t wait. Plus I HAVE to know what’s going to happen to Aria and Declan after the accident. All in all, the story kind of dragged for me since there wasn’t much dialogue and just a lot of inner monologue but the story was still interesting. The character love for one another and unique story definitely made this story bearable and kept me reading. Hope the next book has more of what the last couple characters held and more dialogue.
