I purposely waited to review this book. I intended on reading Jake's POV, but ultimately couldn't bear another excruciating detailed and unrealistic book about Emily.

Emily, 24, teacher and independent woman. Only, not so much. I was told these things, but other than owning her own home at a young age, there was nothing independent or mature about this woman. The writer wrote her as a lost 18 year old. I grew more irritated and disenchanted with every page. Even her choice to remain pure wasn't h

*** Warning Ranty and Spoilers...

I'm seriously torn between 2 and 3 stars. For most of this book I vacillated between WTF? and Really?

The book starts off with a flashback. Max and Emily have been inseparable for all four years of college. She thinks he is going to propose after graduation, but instead, he breaks up with her - with a whole "I need to be free" speech.

So for 18 months she is all:

Seriously, she is thrashed, and over a year later, she seems just as raw as when it first happened.

The description was tempting, however the book was, how shall we say, "vanilla." There was no excitement. The characters had no electricity. They spoke without feeling, stinted vocabulary...who speaks like that? I couldn't connect with any of them. Hot Jake who was 30, acted like a 5 year old. He's a DOCTOR dammit! And a 30 year old who goes without sex for what? almost a year? REALLY? Not realistic at all. Even Max....4 years....REALLY?

I can only guess this was written for 16-year olds, becaus

this was the biggest piece of crap I've ever read! When I read the preview for this book it intrigued me. I kept waiting for it to move away from in depth descriptions of the millions of calories that the main character ate on any given day (while of course staying small and petite, with absolutely NO mention of going to the gym) and get to the love story. The men in this story were unbelievably patient with this unbearably immature main character, which was nice, but SO not based on ANY reality ...more

I started out really enjoying this book, but by the middle I was bored out of my mind. I pushed through it just to finish, but it never picked up. I liked the love triangle angle, but once that was resolved, the whole book was just too mushy and dragged on forever. It was like the story that wouldn't end...

I saw that there is a second book from the other character's point of view and normally, I love those, but I don't think I want to put myself through that torture. I'm one and done in this ser

This book was very refreshing. It didn't have sex on every page. It was a true love story.
Emily is a broken up girl who had a very tough life. Her parents and grandparents pass away leaving her alone. She goes through college with one boyfriend until he ends it.
She then falls in love with Jake. Complications and problems revile themselves.

I throughly enjoyed reading this book. It was very pleasant and well written. Characters, plot, description,book cover ( LOVED IT), and everything else. I e

BORING! The whole story was unrealistic. In my wildest dreams I could not have imagined the ridiculousness of this story and I have crazy wild dreams. There is NO WAY a teacher could afford to fly around as much as this woman did and on a whim. Her college friends' ability to do the same was unrealistic. I decided that Jake's story was not worth my time. Honestly. Do not waste your time with this book. You might find yourself thinking "blah, blah, blah" like I did.

The recommended age for this book should be 15. Seriously... The maturity of the heroine (if you can call her that), is unbelievable.

After reading the first couple chapters, I decided to delete the book without finishing. With that in mind, I jumped ahead to the ending, to satisfy my curiosity.

After reading the ending, I decided to go back and finish the book (skipping many pages of dribble along the way) but finishing none-the-less.

Here are my annoyances with this book:

I enjoyed this book and so fell in love with Jake. I loved how he respected Emily's beliefs and so understood her struggles. I was proud of how she made it through with her beliefs even though the battle and struggles were long and hard. (ahem, no pun. . .maybe. LOL)

What I didn't like so much about this book; again, how there was a lot of assuming and no real communication. It was super-dee-duper frustrating when Emily or Jake would begin to say something and then never mind or forget it. Ugh!!

I got this book because it was free on Amazon and who doesn't love free! I also LOVE books that are really long. I don't know why, maybe because if I know I cannot read it within 4 hours, I will not stay up 1/2 the night to finish it? Since I am a stickler for grammatical errors in books, I appreciated the author letting me know there were going to be errors right in the beginning. It helped prepare me. I actually think had I not had the "disclaimer" from the author I would have rated this book ...more

Book 1 of 2 Indelible Love - Emily's Story

I love, love, love D. W. Cee, everything I've read has been brilliant, I loved Indelible Love and i suggest reading this before reading Jake's version, i preferred Jake's version but simply because i found more emotion in the book, i don't think i'd of understood everything if i hadn't read Emily's version first though.

It's a book about two people that are meant for each other....that end up hitting every bump in the road through out their relationship

LOVE, LOVE...I enjoyed this love story between Emily and Jake. So many times we look at love In many different ways, this story shares the fears, hurt, pain, joy, and trust it takes to be in a serious relationship. The best part of the story for me was the love they had for each other even when the flesh wanted to give in to their fleshy desires, she stood strong in her own truth, and because Jake loved her he was willing to wait, it wasn't easy, but the love they shared with each other gave the ...more

Emily and Max had been together 4 years during college and she expected a proposal not a dumping!!

So 18 months later we catch up with Emily and her life, and her relationship with the very successful Dr Jake Reid. She has a whole load of insecurities thanks to Max, unfinished business thanks to Max, and struggles with her new relationship.

Emily and Jake and Max - this is the story of how still loving an old boyfriend impacts all of your current life when the old boyfriend reappears!!!

A fun read,

Emily Logan is an adult orphan, loves food like no tomorrow and is always cautious of her heart even though she believes in happy endings. Just over eighteen months ago is when Emily finished undergrad but also got dumped by the love of her life Max, who she was with for four years of undergrad. Even now as it's been over a year and a half she still struggles when she hears about Max, but even though she has been with just the one guy she still feels that at some point in her life she will find ...more

Fantastic without an overwhelming amount of sex...

I really, seriously could not put this book down. I smiled so much, my jaw ached and I found myself laughing a view times as well. Then there were other times I wanted to scream or shake some sense into the heroine and the hero. I hated that Emily cried or teared up so much. I wanted to scream during the sky walk scene, then the New York scene as well. What I loved the most about this book is that Emily was a virgin, and remained a virgin until a

I'm being generous on the two stars because it was a freebie from Amazon. I would have been irritated if I paid for it. I agree with the Rhee negative reviews regarding the immaturity l both main characters and the completely unrealistic storyline of the main character's innocence and finding a 30 yr old doctor being ok with that. For once I was actually annoyed that the book was lengthy. Really wanted this one to end sooner. I will not be reading the next book in the series.

I generally don't like to give bad reviews, but this book was pretty hard to get through. Truly an exhausting read. First, I just didn't like the characters. They were unrealistic and honestly pretty annoying. The lead couple played constant head games with each almost seemed like the author was trying to make them seem endearing, but that's not how it came across. Second, the author's attempts at humor just fell flat. Lastly, and what made this book so exhausting to read, was the exc ...more

Wohhkay.. So, I have to say that I gave this book 3 stars for Jake. Tall, jet black hair, gorgeous eyes, dimples and a beautiful body. Let's not forget at the age of 30 he is a respected heart surgeon, sure it helps to have probably half the hospital carrying your last name but this was how he was raised so he doesn't come off as snobby, looking down at the less fortunate and once you know his parents in the book and his Grams you know that he was just raised right. I don't think Jake was even a ...more

Recommends it for: No one
The book started off well, but the further I read the more I lost interest. Too much filler.... detailed descriptions of almost everything took over and the actual story got lost in the descriptions. I found myself flipping through it, only glancing at each paragraph til I could find the storyline again. Honestly don't think I could handle Jake's story too.

Disappointing read. Could not recommend it. This book could easily have done with 100 less pages.

UHG . my favourite part about this book was when it finally came to a close.

Emily is a total b-word who has the overused tragic backstory of both of her parents passing away, leaving her with no family for many years.

Then she finds Max, and even though how she describes their relationship makes it all seem very unappealing (many fights, she loved him more than he loved her, he wasn't romantic, etc) she is WAY in love. So when he dumps her she's extremely broken hearted and pathetic for like a y

I love these story'. I wish I could read the second book, Jake's story but it costs money. It is really romantic and I love romance books. This girl Emily gets dumped on graduation night. Then dates a heart surgeon and he proposes to her once then she says no. They go to Hawaii, Paris, and London. Jake is the heart surgeon, he leaves her stranded at the Grand Canyon for a road trip, because Emily's ex proposed to her and he was actually going to propose to her on graduation night instead of brea ...more

Indelible love was okay. It was a love hate thing with this book. I had a lot of WTF moments, but i had to continue reading just to see what ludicrousness would happen next. I would like to add that I am an emotional person but Emily! Come on! She cried for every little freaking thing.You will not die or miss anything if you do not ever pick up this book.

If you have trouble sleeping I recommend this book!!

Four out of five times this book will put you to sleep. The best way to tell a good book is, do you laugh out loud? Do you smile read? Can you not put the book down? Do you cheer for the couple or tell everyone you know about the book? None of the above in this dictionary style book. This book is an overly narrated version heavily describing every meal eaten or cooked. Every step in making for example croissants.... there were more food descrip

•I thought that this book was very realistic and very good. I liked how Emily and Jake ended up together at the end considering their situation. I absolutely loved the way Emily was described and I hated the reason Max tried to win her back.

•I would recommend this book to people who like suspense and a lot of romance and food. Emily talks a lot about food in this story.

Emily and Jake. If you haven't read the entire series yet, than you have an amazing journey ahead of you!

Emily and Jake are the perfect couple. Emily starts dating Jake after an incident at the grocery store. Jake takes her to the hospital, and ends up getting her number. Now Emily has had one serious relationship before, and his name was Max. Now he comes up in the story eventually.

Jake and Emily have an amazing relationship. That is, until Max is back in the picture. Jake's jealous side gets t

I have just done reading this book and i think it was incredibly lovely. Author has expressed every emotions and feeling very clearly, i nearly thought i was in a part of this excellent love story. The thing i have learned from this book is that, life is full of unexpected things, which may change our life radically. Also I've understood that love can cope with any problems and in relationship one of the most important thing is respect for eachother.

I really like this book I love how they tell us how Emily and Jake meets. Some of the time I said she should pull herself together because she is crying about how she miss max even though she has Jake. I love how jake tells her how much she love his but she can't say it bake so she change the subject. Who in the world purpose to someone only after being with them for two months?

That was my only regret, that I didn't take the time to savor the book. From the first time they met in the grocery store, to all the ups and downs and cross country visits. They dynamics of the story are what made me keep going. I was mad at Jake then I felt sorry for him and then I wanted to beat Max into the ground for upsetting ...more
