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

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
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
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
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,

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.

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
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.

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
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.

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 recommend this book to everyone. Book is fu
Chelse Hall
I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS BOOK. This was my very 1st Dw Cee and it hooked me. I was so wrapped up in the connection with each character that I couldn't put the book down. 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

Really annoying female lead. Stupid. Couldn't stand her. Jake shoulda left her ass.

I skimmed through the whole book. Wasted my time reading this crap.
This was a quick, romantic read. I started out really enjoying the book, but in the middle I got bored. I got tired of her being sad and lonely about not being with Jake. The big, long descriptions of the food were a bit over the top and unnecessary, I didn't read through half of them. I did really like Emily and Jake's relationship. It was refreshing to read a romantic book without any sexual scenes. Towards the end, their relationship did get a little too mushy for me though. Overall, it was a ...more
I absolutely fell in love with this story.
Very romantic, I hope find my jake !
cute story but took me forever to read ... def wont read it again..
I still don't quite know what to make of the book...Don't get me wrong in places I loved the story and the character but it just didn't seem believable to me. It seemed quite predictable at points and incredibly contrived, Emily as a character was quite annoying too. I know she was probably intended as an independent woman who was scared of being hurt but instead come across as a melodramatic, attention seeking and self pitying person...One of the only good things about the book was the writer's ...more
As I began to read, I wasn't too sure if I was going to be immersed in the story. It did take awhile for me to like the characters, but in the end I did. I felt Emily's heartbreak and sadness with her breakup with Max. I thought it was odd that Jake and her were already in a relationship by the next chapter- I wanted to see how their relationship evolved. Some of the situations were predictable- fear of getting into a new relationship to have it end, realizing the mistake of breaking up and putt ...more

This is the first in a great series by this author. In fact, this is the book that resparked my love of reading. It is a sweet but emotion filled story. The characters are flawed by that is what makes them realistic. People make mistakes and the road to HEA is paved with heartache and pain. Love is never simple. Emily is a shy, sad woman. Her heart broken by her college love; she builds walls around her heart, that Jake Reid begins to tear down. Just when she appears to let the doctor of her dre ...more
Emily was getting on with her life. After being with Max for four years he had dumped her at graduation. Now it was 18 months later so still was not dating anyone. One stop at the grocery store at midnight, a cereal box she couldn't reach and falling against a stranger changed all that but she didn't know it yet. Jake had literally fallen for her. That's what happened when she fell and took him with her to the floor. From that moment he knew she would be in his life only she didn't know it yet.
I can tell just reading the first few paragraphs that this book was not for me. I prefer strong writing and character building to melodramatic writing. Does this remind me of Twilight? In a way, yes. Twilight was well written, though it gave unrealistic expectations of romance. Indelible Love had me rolling my eyes early on and I could not suspend disbelief. I do think that with a little work, the author could be the next Stephenie Meyer.

I started writing back in Dec of 2009 after I saw an interview with Stephenie Meyers. She told Oprah that she always had stories in her head and that struck a chord with me. Whenever I drive, I have all kinds of stories circulating in my mind. Generally, I am the star of this story and many wacky things happen. Of course, I make the story quite complimentary and beneficial to me. I guess you could ...more
