    "I read a lot of romance, but that doesn't make them all great. This isn't. I found this book to be really weak, particularly with how it tried to spin these two characters together into this fated love aspect. Too much "Movie of the Week" or "a very special episode" chapters to be interesting, and not enough detail about the characters."

    "I didn't expect to like this book so much, when I read the kindle sample it sort of felt kind of creepy and dark. Curiosity got the best of me and I'm so glad I bought it anyway. Once I got accustomed to the author's writing style I absolutely loved it! It's such a different love story, full of mystery and eerie dialogue. These two characters are extremely smart individuals, however they are also very damaged souls. They both struggle to bravely overcome their troubled pasts. I'll just say Gabriel has to battle many, many demons, and Julianne has to do a lot of forgiving. "

    "This story is full of romance, but also has a lot of suspense. I like that it tells more than just your typical romance story. It has a lot of heart and tells the story of how two people learn to trust each other and believe each other no matter what happens. It tells the story of how two people meant for each other overcome all obstacles to make it work."

    "I found this book to be well written, sexy and far too predictable. The characters are well done and the emotions portrayed feel real, immediate and rich. But, the plot and situations weren't exactly surprising and didn't explore anything new. "

    "Reading romance books is a guilty pleasure of mine, but I don't like the fairytale romance stories. That's not how life works. I want something where there's a bit of a struggle, maybe someone has to give someone else a second chance. I heard about this book and was told it'd fit what I'm looking for, but I'm not sure I want to read three books in a series just to get to a good one. There are probably piles of books out there that I'd be looking for."
