Adam Roundtree and Melissa's Story - Is Romance enough to overcome a decades-long family feud?

I love the strength and intelligence of Ms. Forster's characters, and this book did not disappoint in this regard. Ms. Forster is an author who makes me use the dictionary feature on my kindle, and I love that! I get a chance to live vicariously through the characters and stretch my mind to learn new words at the same time. Also, in addition to the beautiful and sweet romance, there are several mysterie
I do not understand how this book was published. There must have been no editor. It's fine grammatically (mostly) and the story is alright but the writing is absolutely terrible. One minute they are one place and two sentences later they are someplace completely different - geographically, i.e. they went from going into a concert to having coffee afterwards - with hardly any explanation of how they got there! There is no "middle", there's no realistic timeline of events. Things just magically ha ...more
I love this book. It was very emotional and full of many surprises. It was a romantic and modern view of Romeo and Juliet. The difference is the two main characters - Melissa Grant and Adam Roundtree were actually in love. It took them a while to admit it to each other because they both didn't want to be hurt.

Good book but could have condensed some of the unnecessary dialogue.
This is the first book I have read by this author. The book was not clearly plotted to give the reader a flow. It was hard to follow due to jumps in time. Also, there was not much detail to lead into new scenes or situations. Overall, just very hard to follow. Maybe it's just this book as the author does have other books widely read.

Decent book. Not the bedt I have read. A man and woman whose families hate each ither fall in love.
Took too long for Adam and Melanie to realize they should be together; liked Emily and B-H's story,
