4 Star RT Book Reviews Rating
Two stories collide in this novel that deals with acceptance, love and revenge. From a mature woman with a huge heart to a cold, calculating young girl, this story offers everything from romance to betrayal. The fast-moving plot is a bit on the explicit side, and there's a heroine and a villain to love and despise respectively. This story will stick with you long after it's come to an end. -- RT Book Reviews
A Great Read!
The story becomes a twisted and tangled mass of deception, lies, heartache, and confusion. It was hard to put down from the moment I starteit. The story weaves in and out of the past and present and each chapter alternates between Sam’s and Melody’s voices. I love the way Laurel gives us enough background information on the characters but manages to keep it relevant to the present day story. This book definitely took me by surprise and really held my attention the whole way through. If you are looking for a great read then this is it! -- Melissa Patafio, Chick Lit Central.
"I’m not one for giving out 5 stars all willy-nilly. I am deadly serious about my 5 star rating and have only given out two so far this year. Pretend you can see my serious face. Okay? Well, I am giving my third 5 star rating for this incredible and surprising novel by a new favorite author, Laurel Osterkamp.
This story was so unexpected. I thought it was going to be light and fluffy, which is totally a good thing, but it was dark and serious, an even better thing in the right circumstances. These were the right circumstances. Not only was the story line SO. GOOD. The writing was, too. Laurel writes in a slow, subtle, quiet way. It’s hard to explain, but it’s excellent and realistic, from both viewpoints. I loved this book and I am now dying to read Laurel’s first novel, Following My Toes.
Don’t let the female protags scare you off if you’re not into women’s lit or chick lit. In fact, I would say this book is not chick lit. This book has wide appeal, and is a great read for all fans of contemporary fiction and drama. I highly recommend it. Read it now, please and thank you."
