    "This is a really good read, a bit cliche at first, but good. The hero isn't abusive, however, it's romantic and very charming. "

    "I love romance novels. I needed to find the best romantic novel with abusive heroes. I found New Moon (The Twilight Saga). Say what you will about Twilight, but I love the series. New Moon is definitely my favorite book of the series. It's all about Bella and focuses on her relationship with Jacob Black. I totally ship these two, so I loved this book. Check it out!"

    "I am so torn on this book. I love the main character, a strong woman who's dedicated to helping the innocent. Yet it falls into such a common trope: the heroine being saved by a man. It turns a powerful book into another typical romance novel. "

    "Finally A romance novel without the H and H hating each other in the beginning. I enjoyed the friendship that they shared when they were together. It was refreshing instead of always the fighting and bickering. Laughter is good for the soul. My only complaint is I wished there was a little bit more passion. "

    "Eek. Very disappointed in this book. I honestly wasn't able to finish it because I was cringing so hard. Problematic is an understatement! If you don't enjoy depictions of rape and sexism you should give this one a hard pass."

    "This is an incredible love story that really draws you in and makes you care about the main characters. The book is so well written and the imagery is so vivid that you feel you're seeing through the heroine's eyes and experiencing her emotions and traumas yourself. This is a book I can see myself rereading in the future."

    "I can't see much about this book aside from the fact that I couldn't really get into the story. The plot is like a rather soap opera esque romance drama that is portrayed into a novel. I read a number of chapters and just thought it was almost too predictable to keep on reading. If you're a fan daytime television than this book is probably for you."
