    I know this book has a lot of controversy surrounding it, especially with the cheating story line, that is what drew me to it You might call me crazy I like the angst of the cheater plot and the heart break it brings, but usually I like my cheater plots to have a little justification such as they weren t together at the time, misunderstanding, evil other woman, the H or h jump to the wrong conclusion and therefore it isn t actually cheating Plus there has to be remorse, big groveling and forgive [...]


    mich

    The problem I saw here is a common one that I ve seen in books where romance drives the plot how do you keep a story and its characters interesting once the couple becomes, well, a couple Once the anticipation of the hookup is over, how do you hang on to the reader s interest What kind of obstacles, what kind of drama will you create for them Some authors gots what it takes to keep things going in a way that works and some justn t.I really liked the first part of this book childhood friends to l [...]

    I have never in my life been weird ed out And really kind of sad.The couple was wrong ish Even thou the hero was made out of some good stuff, I liked the heroine from the very start.I know he was tricked I know he was set up I know he was adamant about not being interested in anybody else and I know he would have never made the first move without what the other woman did.I know.And I sympathize For that.But I do not for all the other times I wanted to make myself forgive him, but every time he [...]


    Dana*aka Assassin*

    This author dares to venture where most authors would never dream of traveling deep into your darkest fears and horrors while in a relationship She brings them to life in 3D IMAX and forces you to face them head on and in your face This book will take you from giddily in love to insanely infuriated homicidal in the matter of a page or twot that you don t see something coming, but not THAT Having said the above, all is not lost Far from it, for we find out that, as in real life, things are not as [...]

    LuvGirl

    3.5 stars.This was actually a book I couldn t put down The writing wasn t top notch but the storyline was excellent The relationship between the leads was very sweet Watching them fall in love from childhood to adulthood was fragrant to watch Then out of nowhere comes the sick and twisted other woman who did whatever it took to get her paws on the hero and succeeded to some extent, so expect cheating if you are interested in reading this book That took some of the sugar away from all that sweetn [...]

    Biblio

    This book started off quite sweet romantic but gradually transformed into a melodrama with very soap opera ish ending SPOILER ALERT Don t read if you don t want it spoiled for you I mean how many books can you read where the hero realizes he can t live without the heroine only to have her almost dying in his arms and then comes the moment of epiphany tears Anyway, so we have Robbie honestly, giving her guy name was just weird I kept forgetting ROBBIE ROB was the heroine of the book Lucian Luc, w [...]

    Bonnigene Cloud

    This book put another twist on the typical love story, by giving it a childhood romance spin It brought about the questions that come with other long term romances Can friends become lovers and still be friends Can long distance relationships really work Is there a reality when it comes to childhood romance that really looks into forever In this story Robbie becomes an orphan when her parents are killed in a rockslide while the family is on a road trip When the state cannot find her family she e [...]


    Tough Critic Book Reviews

    This book was a total conundrum I ve been sitting on this review for a while now because I honestly didn t know what to think I even asked some of my fellow reviewers to read the book so they could tell me what to think So here s what I think I think.Modern Love Story is a kick ass book that was almost ruined by the plot Wait, WHAT The first half of the book was a effin mazing It was like Callum Harper meets The Opportunist The drama, the sexual tension it was screaming five star rating Life lon [...]


    Stefany

    A Modern Love Story blew me away I read it last night and this morning and fell in love with the characters well not all of them For a little bit I was pretty angry at the lead male, Luc The story follows the characters from the time they are 12 which leaves a different perspective than other romance books I have read Now, the story line with Payten was totally surprising Jolyn has quite the imagination to come up with the twists and turns and downright evilness that Payten posseses It added a l [...]


    Linda Sims

    THIS STARTS OUT OKAY, BUT THRN IT GETS CRAZYLuc and Robbie were both foster children, and spent many years living with a great couple the Lawsons Even when they became adults they remained close Robbie she s the girl has always been in love with Luc, though he seemed oblivious to that, and Robbie didn t want to push it and lose what they did have.Then about 40% in Luc starts to realise what Robbie means to him He is part owner in a bar, with his best friend Conrad, things are coming together for [...]


    Sara

    Another great recommendation from Emily Robbie and Lucian meet in foster care Both children have horrible events in their past scenes that left me sobbing that lead them to their initial meeting but a bond is formed between them that blossoms into Luc quickly becomes Robbie s champion making sure no one hurts and and takes care of her when her past threatens to destroy her On a innocent request, Luc and Robbie start to feel for each other than friendship but never act on it As adults, the coup [...]

    ah think it started out soo good can anyone justify cheating by saying that it meant nothing to themi absolutely hate cheaters n hate the heroines who forgive easily like it meant nothing.hhhn add a stupid stalker to the mixa recipe for disaster


    Anna

    OMG, I was so captivated by this book, I stayed up to finish I almost threw my mini across the room at one point Such a range of emotions for me I was happy, sad, laughing, mad But I felt the end was just rushed and maybe a epilogue would ve made it better, but good book
