With time running out as their combined feelings grow stronger every day, will they be given the chance to change their curse altered fate in this lifetime.
Started reading Love Tormented yesterday and literally couldn't put it down...stayed up 'til 3am to finish it! Totally worth it. It had me hooked right from the first page. I've read many books that it takes at least a chapter to really grab your interest, so this was a nice change. I have also read some well known published romance/erotica authors and I honestly feel that you are right up there with them and definitely better than some others I have read!
The sex/love scenes were very well written in that there is enough details to make your tummy flutter (and cheeks flush) without being crude or cringey, but instead classy. You also change up the vocabulary and details enough in these passages so readers don't get bored of hearing the same descriptions and terms over and over again.
And OMG those dream sequences! What a wonderful way to add angst needed to any good romance story. Ava and Kolton's story was so emotional for me I thought I'd cry. I rarely cry during movies or reading books to that says something. Although you don't get finish their story, it is easy for the reader to conclude for themselves what happens. I know my mind probably made it so much worse than if you actually wrote out the details.
I also love how every single character (even minor ones). They came to life for me and could almost hear most of their voices especially Margaret!

Rewriting Love is a refreshing and enjoyable read. The main characters are imperfect but relatable. Lana has a good handle on dialogue and it's an easy read, reaffirming our belief that true love is actually out there for each of us. I need to find my own Jake! Deb S.
