A bit tedious

I don't know how I came across this read but I did...I mean its has "Epic" in the title so it's gotta be good. It actaully was ok if you can tolerate reading through a ton of backstory that doesn't really have an real meaning in tje current story. Also, you will get ver frustrated with all the characters...and I mean all the characters. They are, I would guess mid to late 30s and act as if they are early to mid 20s which there is nothong wrong with it per se but it felt abit wrong a

This is a review for the whole series (books 1 to 10).

One thing has to be said : this author’s imagination as to ways to keep characters apart when they’re obviously meant to be together knows no limit. After I read the first book in this serial, I was concerned I’d get bored really fast because it felt the author was telling most of the story and not showing much. But the writing is much better in the following books, and there’s so much happening, I didn’t have time to get bored!
Then halfway t

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

This was a good start to what promises to be an interesting series. I enjoyed the storyline. It is an interesting mix of drama and suspense. Although the book is well wrapped up, some points are left un-concluded so I hope these are carried through to the next instalment. Fast paced plot with a lot of drama, interesting characters with intriguing backgrounds and stories of their own that link to main character Rafe and Eden.

Rafe Salvaggio is a very strong woman and confident. At the beginning of the story, she is the owner of an architectural firm that she'd built, herself with the help of her father and was very successful. This brought back good memories of when I worked for architectural firms. She is a go-getter and gets what she wants even if she has to step on other's toes. She writes letters that are never sent to let off steam when she is upset. However, she enjoys the finer things in life and will fight fo ...more

Definitely different.

I was in a readers block when I came across this book. I wasn't sure what to think at first. But the more I read the more I really liked it. I like how every characters has a purpose in the storyline. I love Rafaelle she know what she wants and goes after it. I still trying to decide about Eden. But someone in their group is a bad guy. Towards the middle of the book I kept thinking omg we know about this, but then I realized is your getting more background. I just downloaded

What an amazing story! This was a riveting story! I was hooked from start to finish and can't wait for the next book in this series! I loved the complex characters (Rafa and Eden) not to mention their supporting cast. Talk about two people that clearly love each other yet pushed each other away to the point that now it's almost irreparable damage to their relationship if not for their daughter Bronte. What will it take for the damage to be replaced by love again. Can't wait for the next book

Book 1 of 10 makes me consider reading the whole series - if not all at once!

Awesome, better than what I expected. Glad I finally took the plunge! I own the first two, and am also glad the rest are on KU.
