To Whom it May Concern,

It was easy to call us forbidden and harder to call us soulmates. Yet I believed we were both. Forbidden soulmates.

When I arrived to Edgewood, Wisconsin I didn’t plan to find him. I didn't plan to stumble into Joe's bar and have Daniel's music stir up my emotions. I had no clue that his voice would make my hurts forget their own sorrow. I had no id

I think that it is very possible that I just found my favorite book of 2014. Loving Mr. Daniel’s was THAT GOOD. I can’t think of one thing I didn’t love about this story. The impact it had on me was major. I laughed, I cried, I loved every single page. I can’t recommend this one enough.

I love nothing like I love a taboo love story. So, it is no big surprise that this book had been sitting on my TBR for quite some time. Finally, I decided to download the audiobook and give it a listen. I am so glad that I did. This book was incredible!

First off, let me say that it was not the dirty, sordid affair that I had envisioned in my perverted mind. Yes, there is the obvious taboo nature of a student-teacher affair. However, it was almost easy to forget that that relationship dynamic exi

Ohhh I loved this one!!!! “Love loved” it actually. And yes, that’s a double ;)

This beautiful story was so much more than a romance. It took me by surprise in the best of ways. It was a love story and it was a life story. All kinds of love, all kinds of life. I laughed, I cried and I totally felt it!!

The first thing that drew me to this story was the blurb. My heart was racing from the moment I came across it and I just knew this was a book I had read…

There's a sweet, little romance in here somewhere, but when you come across something like this throughout the entire book....

(The correct word is arguably. )


....it makes me want to grind my teeth in frustration. But for those readers who consider proper English, good grammar and sentence structure, and correct word usage optional extras in their romance novels, this should be a great read. :/

"I’ve never seen two people who loved each other so quietly."

➦This is a forbidden romance between a teacher and a student. The main characters meet before they realize they are a teacher/student and make a connection. Needless to say they are bummed out once this fact is revealed. And so they fight the temptation.

❤This novel is about loss and love. I loved that the mcs connected through their love of poetry. This novel kind of reminded me of Amy Harmon's A Different Blue by Amy Harmon with the whole poetry q

I am totally in the minority on this one, but I just didn't really like this...

I felt like someone took PS I Love You, A Walk to Remember, Until November, Slammed, and some random YA cliches and threw them all in a blender together and hit the "smoothie" button.

Plus, I think it was just too sappy and over the top in the cutesy department for my tastes.

***Spoilers Ahead***

But mostly, I felt that there was death overkill.

I have a soft spot for teacher/student romances. But a simple fact that author tells a story of forbidden love between teacher and student is no guarantee that I will enjoy it. However, this novel made a huge impression on me. Loving Mr. Daniels is beautiful, complex and powerful story that talks about life destinies of multiple people, story that I will remember forever!

I thought this would be a romance between a student and a teacher. What I read was a story about human nature and life’s poetic moments. Real life expressed through every spectrum. I laughed and cried through every page of this book. I was meant to beta read it and give Brittainy feedback. I couldn’t give her a single thing.

I’m sure you’ve heard the idea that everyone has a story living inside of them.

This is an experience... overwhelming, intense and so heartfelt. There are moments that will make you stop and just absorb it all... because of the quirky beauty and then the deep, slicing pain. If I sound a little overly dramatic with this book, it's because I never was a bystander. What do I mean by that? It's when you are reading and kinda going through the motions; you are there ... and then you drift away... maybe go and fix a little snack... tal

I honestly put off doing this re-read because I was afraid it'd be like some other books that I deemed my "favorites" where it didn't hold up the second time, but I'm glad to report this is keeping its 5 star rating and staying firmly on my favorites shelf!

Usually when I'm starting a Teacher/Student book I know exactly what I'm getting myself into. The plot is always the same. The angst is always the same. The problems the couple is faced are usually the same. When I started the book 'Loving Mr. Daniels' I was sure I'm gonna read the average forbidden love story. What I got Blew me away.

Where to begin, this story was so damn good! Tears will be shed while you take this heartbreakingly beautiful journey. The story is told in alternating pov, there is a ton of Shakespeare quoted and manipulated while our two main characters build a relationship that so many people only dream of.

This book is about Ashlyn and Daniel. Both characters know what it's like to lose an important someone in their lives. They also know what loneliness is like.
