I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest review.

This story is written mainly from Evans point of view. It's basically the first book repeated from another's point of view! I just didn't feel the need for this book at all. I felt like I was re-reading the entire thing again!

We do find things out that wasn't in the first book, as we meet Tatum. I really like Tatum and felt like punching her stupid boyfriend fo

Poor Evan doesn’t get a lot of luck with the ladies in the love department and always seems to fall for the wrong girls.

Evan and Tatum go way back and have always been special friends, they are both really likeable characters in the book. Tatum suffers at the hands of someone else and Evan is her knight in shining armour. But Evan seems to be everyone’s knight, he falls in love so easy and always seems to get hurt. He’s a good guy.

This is a novella and it has lot’s of chapters and stops and star

Borrowed is the second book (Evan's POV) from author Delisa Lynn and follows on from Embracing Love.

Although I hadn't read the first book prior to being given this one to review, it was easy enough to follow the story.

The characters are easy to like and follow, although I found the story slightly disjointed as there were so many sub-characters which didn't play a large part and didn't really have anything to add to the story.

It's a true love story and you can't help but hope that Evan finds hi

First of all this is a book that you are going to love and won't be able to put down. Im in love with ( mr hot ) Evan.

I feel completely in love with this book! I want to read all of them now! I started reading this about 2 hours ago and I could not put it down! I love Evan and Tatum's story. There are so many things that keep them apart and as Evan says they are on "Borrowed Time" hence the name of the book. Delisa Lynn's writing always keeps me at the edge of my seat and her imagery makes me feel like I am there with those characters. The other big thing I like about her writing is that the intimate love scene ...more

Well Evan... I gotta say you probably have the worst luck in the love dept. I have read! Now granted I know that you love Lila but baby, she was confused, and dumb ..same with Tatum! I fell in love with you in Embracing Love and even more in Borrowed. Love is a tricky thing, especially when the one person you have loved most of your life is being hurt by someone else. It's a tug of war of emotions.. I think Evan will always love Lila. I loved Evan's POV! I just wanted to hold him and tell him I' ...more

I received this ARC from the author for an honest review.

First, this review is solely my opinion.I despise cheating in any type of story I read. It will only go down hill from there for me. Secondly, I don't like books with a lot of sex or foul language.

I didn't like the first book but I had to find out what happened with Evan and Lila and wanted to see where this book would lead. Basically, this is a novella written in Evans POV.

Is it just me, or am I the only one confused by the synopsis? I think the author needs to start over.

And cheating is not cool for me. Ever.

3 BUCKING STARS!


I’m not really sure were to start with this book review. I’ve mixed feelings about the entire thing, while I didn’t hate it, I didn’t exactly love it either, I think it’s fallen into my okay shelf and is likely to stay there.

Borrowed is the follow up book to Embracing Love by Delisa Lynn. I loved Evan, the leading male, in the book, and felt so sorry for him. The poor fella had

I was gifted book #3 from the Author for an honest review
so i purchased book 1 & 2 so I didn't miss anything in the story.

This is a novella in Evan's POV.


I loved Evan, at times I wanted to cry for him, he is so not lucky in the love department.

Again I wanted to give this book a higher rating.
It is a great story. And it is filled with great characters.
But i didn't feel the story flowing and it felt a little stagnant to me.


This Author is very talented and has a great mind to put all this

Amazing and touching this is a love story that you will wan to have on your shelf to pick up time and time again. Evan is smoldering in this book and you will definitely be drawn to his personality and heart. Having fallen in love with Lila, in the first book of this series and then losing her, you were left wondering what would happen to him. This is his story. Finding his true heart is a long rode of heart ache and betrayal but when he final finds Tatum and realizes that she is what true love ...more

I received this ARC for an honest review.

First of all this is a book that you can't put down. I absolutely loved Evan. He is just every girls dream man. This story is very emotional and very sexy. I loved them parts in this story! I just got so into it emotionally. Some times I wanted to jump through the book and strangle Tatum, which is the girl in this story. She just kept pissing me off. lol.. Anyways, she was in love with her brothers best friend. Some things she did were just so annoying.

What can I say about this book? I loved Evan from the first book and thought he got the raw deal but it turns out that he didn't really. Evan is my favorite character out of all Delisa's books. He is the most down to earth gorgeous man. This is Evan's story. I'm so glad that things worked out for him after losing his love to another man. Him and Tatum have been friends from the beginning but things have a way of changing their lives. He went to New York for school and she stayed home. It's funny ...more

EVAN MARTIN!!!!!
He's the Book boyfriend of the year in my opinion. There are a million reasons why I loved this series. Evan is at the top of the list. He's not perfect, which for a book boyfriend is rare..lol. He's raw and so real. The poor got his heart stomped on time and time again Yet at the end of the day he got EVERYTHING he deserved.
I also LOVED Tatum's POV. We were given a glimpse in the 2nd book about what she went through with Thayer, but in this book we heard everything....Delisa r

Delisa Lynn grew up in Columbus,Ohio. She works in the medical field by day, and let's her characters come to life at night. She is an avid reader, mainly any book with Alpha males or a good romance novel. If she isn't working or writing you can find her curled up with her fur baby and her kindle. Or watching a good movie with her husband. She is a huge reality TV junkie.
