received this book in exchange for a review. It starts off exactly where the first book left off. Adam, a hot Italian/Brazilian, needs to go back him to Brazil to take care of some business. Mainly his father. Adam didn't want to bring Ella, his shy naive girlfriend, with him because it would be too dangerous for her & he couldn't risk her life. They tried talking on a video phone but calls weren't coming as often anymore. Ella decides to take thing in her own hands because she missed Adam s ...more

Received from author for an honest review.

Story opens with Ella going through changes over the departure of Adam. Nothing has been the same since he left. It continues from "Captivated" the story of Adams and Ella's meeting and the beginning of their relationship.

Ella is heartbroken with Adam being away in his homeland, Brazil. Charmed finds the timid and broken Ella deciding she will not sit around any longer and wait on phone calls from Adam, but will go after her man, who she feels she canno

Adam and Ella's love is tried to the limit as Adam leaves for Rio and leaves Ella behind in Newport.

If you ever loved anyone deeply, specially your first love, you can understand how impossible it is for Ella to continue to live without Adam. Even his calls are slowly becoming sparse and finally days go by without hearing from him.

You feel the desperation in Ella's heart at the thought that the only man she has ever loved would soon be totally gone from her life. The author takes us through Ella

Charmed picks up right where Captivated left off - Adam is on his way to Brazil leaving Ella in Newport. Ella has to cope without Adam who made her come alive when he entered her life. This is a real struggle for her given her history. She even does something risky which seems to be the needed catalyst to send her to Brazil showing how much she has grown since meeting Adam. I really liked the strength and resolve Ella shows us in this installment. As shocked as Adam is to see her in Brazil he is ...more

I received a free copy of Charmed in exchange for an honest review. I give this book 4 star.

Charmed continued where Captivated left off. Ella was head over heels in love with Adam and he left her in Newport to go back to Brazil. He did not give her much of an explanation as to why, just that he needed to see his family and dealt with his father. Ella's life was not the same without Adam so she surprised him by showing up at his mom's house in Brazil.

In Charmed, you learned more about Adam and

Adam and Ella's relationship is pushed to the limits when Adam leaves Ella behind and goes back to Rio.
I love that this book picks up where the first one left off. Adam has gone back to Brazil to take care of some personal matter. Ella is left in Newport without knowing when or if Adam will return. Not willing to wait around any longer Ella makes a bold move and sets off to Rio to find Adam leaving her life behind. While in Brazil we learn more into Adam's background and what it was like growing

WOW - Emily Jane Trent just keeps writing and the series just keeps getting better and better!!! I mean who doesn't love a good love story. A story that also has some personal twist written into it along the way!!!

I love that Charmed starts right where Captivated left off!!! Adam had to return to Brazil for an urgent matter. He doesn't tell Ella why - thinking that this will protect her from any danger. But Ella just can NOT live without Adam in her life. Ella pools her funds and flys to Brazil
This is the second book in the Adam And Ella series.
It picks up right where the first one left off. Adam is on his way back home to Brazil, leaving Ella behind. Ella has a hard time with the separation. It gets longer and few in-between the phone calls they share.
With Ella already having issues with her self esteem, this separation isn't helping any.
Ella decides to just do it, she hops on a plane and before she knows it she is in Rio looking up Adam and his family.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review. I like that it starts off where the first book left off. Adam must return to Brazil on an urgent matter. In an effort to protect her, he doesn’t take Ella with, and doesn’t provide any information as to why or how long he’ll be gone. Ella, who has just fallen head over heels, cannot stand the separation and the “not knowing”. After quitting her job, she’s off to Brazil to find out what is going on, in hopes of helping in some way. While Adam ...more

This book is the second in the Adam and Ella series. I liked this book better than the first. Ella is becoming braver, stronger and her recently acquired worldliness has given her a whole new dynamic. She blossoms with unconvention and shines under pressure. I have no doubts that she will become Claudio's most vicious and surprising nemesis when their impending confrontation comes to fruition.

Adam is just Adam. He doesn't need to change. As he is, he is delicious, brilliant, loving, passionate,

After the cliffhanger in Book 1 - how could you not go out and get this and immediately read it!!

After spending glorious weeks together Adam has to return home to take care of business. He promises to keep in contact with Ella and promises to come back to her. As the weeks drag on - the communication is occurring less and less. Ella is distraught and makes up her mind that she is going to Adam. Even I was convinced that Ella was getting left behind.

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.*

At the end of the first book in this series, Adam has been called home to Brazil. But Ella can't take not hearing from Adam and constantly fearing for his safety. They talk constantly. During their last call Adam tells her he doesn't know the next time he will be able to call because it may not be safe. Ella realizes that she needs to do something to bring Adam back to Newport. When the first idea doesn't work, Ella puts plan B in

Received this for an honest review. Adam is swoon worthy. He is extremely sexy, loving and gentle. They story is unfolding more and more and I like the unknown aspect with the father lurking around. I like a little mystery :) it adds to the story. The love between Adam and Ella is growing day by day and I like watching it unfold. I am charmed by these Characters and can't wait to see what happens :)

I got this book from the author in enchange for an honest review.

Emily Jane Trent has done it again. I felt so drawn to the characters and I can't put it down. The love that Ella and Adam have is untouchable. I can't wait to read Cherished to find out what happens next. Never can go wrong reading any of Emily's books

The twist and bravery of Ella is out standing. Finding out more about Adam and his dark secrets shines a bright light onto the whole issue at hand. this is worth a read.

Bit disappointing with the way some of the scenes are written but the book is out standing.

Also picks up from where it was left off

Seriously thought this series would get better, I was sadly mistaken. I loved the characters but I kept waiting for something exciting to happen and nothing gripped me or made me want to carry on reading. A disappointment I'm afraid to say.

Okay so this one picks up right where the durst left off. It gave more insight as to Adam's background, although it does seem like he does no wrong and she is so trusting!!

Such a good romance with more then a bit of erotica!! So the story continues....
