    FULL REVIEW NOW POSTED 4.5 stars She had my heart I gave her my soul WOW WOW WOW I was blown away by this book It was a refreshingly unique story and the writing was exquisite Vivid, powerful, and enthralling The story was very slow building, and meticulously detailed, but every single detail mattered Everything was connected and had depth, but it didn t follow any rules Normally that would honestly be scary for me, but with the way that everything was portrayed, I felt like I understood where t [...]

    Some seek the limelight, and some hold the light in place Well My Gracious Sakes This is just the first sentence of the first chapter, and from word one I was fishy, fishy hooked and completely wrapped up in this captivating, gorgeously written masterpiece Desiring to be totally engaged and immersed in every conversation, every raw emotion, and in every scene these hauntingly esquisite characters were involved, I found myself morphing into the proverbial fly on the wall So, please indulge me as [...]

    The Man I Love is not my usual kind of read, but my GR friend Bianca s enthusiasm for Suanne Laqueur s books made me curious so I decided to give this one a try when it became available on Netgalley I m glad I did It made for a lovely lighter but emotionally engaging read The narrative arc is a fairly traditional love story, but what made it original and engaging is that it was told from male protagonist Erik s perspective and that the characters including the men defied male female stereotypes [...]

    My most coveted feeling as a reader is to open a book and get lost in the first few pages Is that easy Hell, no In fact, it s been so hard that the unputabledown book feel has become something priceless to me I heart this feeling.The Man I love started like that, I felt the spell in the first few pages You have a life, you have to work, you have a family to feed but you can only think about the damn book.This is no fairy tale, I feel that I need to make this clear.It started very good, as in 4.5 [...]

    More than 5 huge triggers but outstanding writing stars A copy of this book has been kindly provided by the author via Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review.If you re looking for a very emotional and intense story written from third point of view, I want to shout just give this book a chance.I had never read anything by this author and never expected her to trigger such extreme and primal emotions in me.It began all smooth charming and sweet with Erik s childhood and later on his encounter [...]

    Once, when I was in college, I had a date with a young gent and we tossed back a few too many cocktails before deciding to see Saving Private Ryan in the movie theatre We got there late and had to sit about three rows back from the front And then the invasion began.If you recall this movie, the first ten minutes or so is the storming of the beach at Normandy I had to watch it with one eye closed, sort of unable to process it all Maybe that was the booze, but I think it was the reality of it I r [...]

    6 stars Fishy, Fishy in the brook I m going to stab you and gut you and rip you apart with my dull, rusty, jagged little hook Yeah I know It s brilliant I made that one up myself Suanne, feel free to use it.I had to take a break before penning my thoughts because for one, I was busy sweeping my shattered heart up off the floor, and two I m not right I just re read the blurb and it gives nothing away Which surprises me because I knew the basic plot going in I guess that was all the buzz the book [...]

    This isn t a new release so I don t feel the need to recap the plot line I refer you to the hundreds of reviews below.I want to focus on the skill and talent it took to weave this beautiful story You will not find a lose string anywhere within these 485 pages.You read that right There are almost 500 pages of flawless writing Pay attention to every little detail you read, because as innocuous as it may seem at the time, it will come back around to tie into a beautiful lovers knot.I don t think I [...]
