For so long, my very existence teetered on the brink of death
That's what happens, when you lose the other piece of your heart
I can't sleep, write or work
Until, I meet him
The one who won't let me fade back into the darkness
Now, I'm feeling things that I shouldn't
But the man is determined to breathe me back to life
And, it's been so long since I took a breath

This is an amazing story that I could not put down. I love a good romance and suspense and that is what I got and so much more. Connie had me on the edge of my bed reading late into the night to finish to see what happened next and boy oh boy what a roller coaster ride I got and I loved every moment of it!

Lili and Zane are two lost souls looking for something but not quite finding it. Lili has lost the love of her life and she is just floating day to day. She can't function but she tries and it

First, I was pulled in by the cover. Second, that blurb! I have to admit, this book was not what I expected it to be. I was taken down an emotional, steamy and unexpected path and I loved absolutely every second of it! I couldn't get enough of Zane and Lily! Their chemistry was delicious! A MUST READ!

Private Messages by Connie Lafortune is a steamy and emotional roller coaster journey, which is filled with romance, drama, chemistry, angst, heartbreak, twists and turns, suspense and a beautifully written love story all tied up into one intriguing book which had me totally enthralled start to finish. Zane and Lili took my heart, mind and body on quite the ride thru many deep emotions/feels and had reading at a rapid pace, without stopping in order to get my reader fix. Lili is an author who ha ...more

I received a copy and voluntarily left a review and all opinions are my own.

Ever since opening up The Claiming of Callan by Connie Lafortune, I have been a huge fan and have devoured all of her books. While Bound By Steel will always be my favorite, because you can't top perfection, I would love to share with you my love for her newest book Private Messages. Zane and Lili took my heart and body on quite the ride through many deep emotions and kept me turning pages at warp speed. I have been suc

I really enjoyed this book. This author keeps going from strength to strength. This book contains a number of questions, which keep you wanting to read more. All eventually get answered. I hate using the phrase ‘it’s a page turner’, but in this case the description is accurate. I started this on a Friday afternoon and planned on reading this only on the train to and from work as I had other things to do on the weekend. That soon went out of the window and I finished it on Sunday. The story is to ...more

Private Messages had me wanting to read this as soon as I read the blurb and saw the cover I needed it then the first page just had me sucked in to what was going on then kept a hold of me till the very end . The connection between Lilianna and Zane was super intense thought it was interesting every time those two ran into one another . Zane intrigued me I wanted to learn more about him he was such a closed book at times but the more he got close to the heroine the more he opened up . My heart R ...more

This was a very intriguing story that had me in it's grip from the very beginning, and kept me in one position until the end. Lili is an author who has known great tragedy, and has a hard time getting through each day. Zane is always working at his club, but has his own share of demons. When these two meet, the connection is crazy, as they have sparks flying. Zane is ready to explore it, but Lili is more skittish, so Zane has his work cut out for him. She feels all that chemistry, but every time ...more

I totally loved this book! Zane was so swoon worthy. Don't get me wrong I do absolutely love a good bad boy, but it was so refreshing to have Zane be persistent but not forceful in his pursuit of Lilli. I was prepared for this book to turn a little darker, because owning a place called Club Sun you expect backdoor dealings and shady characters. Not in this one! Zane is a total stand up guy who had some serious issues with his family but he didn't let that stop him from falling in love and treati ...more

Yet another masterpiece by Connie Lafortune. Having read the author's previous books, I was waiting for the latest release. And seriously it was worth the wait.
Both Zane and Lilliana’s characters were well sketched. Their enigmatic personalities and sizzling chemistry kept me hooked till the very end. Sparks flew out of the pages.
The writing as always was smooth and lyrical and there wasn’t even a single dull moment when I felt drifted. The enigma, the intrigue, and suspense kept me on tenterhoo

I loved how fate showed up at just the right times to weave an intricate tale for Lili and Zane. The author does a great job of including details throughout the story to give you clues about what’s to come about, but then throws you for a loop later on. Each character has their own back story, baggage, hang ups, and dreams for the future which make for a great tale. The characters showed their vulnerability and strengths, as well as their healing from past problems. I really enj

This is a new author to me, and goodness, I cannot wait to read more of her work. Lili and Zane are both broken and lost souls, who are looking for something to fulfill their lives, but are not sure what or whom. This is a well written emotional roller coaster journey, which is filled with suspense, romance, and intense chemistry, which all had me totally captivated throughout. I cannot wait to read more form this talented author, and recommend this novel for all.

Excellent storyline and will you keep you hooked

5 stars is just not enough. You will fall in love with both Zane and Lillis story, some great characters through the journey of reading this that will bring joy and emotion right through to the end. I won't give the storyline away as I would hate to ruin your pleasure but you will not be disappointed with reading this book. Another excellent book by one of my favourite authors well done Connie .

A fantastic read that will leave you wanting more. I was drawn in by the characters and the storyline. It had a little bit of everything you want in a good, heartbreak, and drama. I could not put it down.

Of course after reading this blurb who wouldn't want to read this! It draws you in and makes you want to know the story. This was an amazing read from Connie. I would recommend it to anyone wanting a romantic suspense that leaves you turning the pages for more. I really enjoyed this book ❤ ...more

This is a steamy romance about two broken souls that are brought together by fate and manage to heal each other. A lot of times, when I read romance novels, it's always the female MC who throws herself into work and makes a lot of changes because of the relationship in the book and it was nice to see the roles reversed in this book.

The book is steamy and while I could see where several plot points were headed, when they came together, the author played them off in a way that tied the plot togeth
