Anne es una joven común y corriente que en el medio de un viaje se da cuenta que hay muchas cosas más allá de su vida, y esto lo descubre gracias a Alex, un pintor de Florida por el que se siente atraída de inmediato. Sin embargo, la vida nos depara tanto alegrías como tristezas y Anne tendrá que aprenderlo de la manera dura. Recomendable.

This was a short story ,but I really didn't think it was a love story, having sex the first time you meet .

And, yes the ending was sad.....

"Love Lasts Forever..." says the book cover and introduces us to Anne Daniels who has everything. A job, a loving family, friends but still something is missing and Anne feels the need to meet a man and experience the roller coaster called love. Her wish comes true when while on a trip to Tampa, Florida, she meets a carefree artist Alex who shows her one evening of bliss on a beautiful beach in Florida, hidden from the public eye. One evening changes Anne and leaves her with myriad of emotions.

Wow! what an incredible sweet short story, it gives a glimpse of what life can be if only we don't hesitate and take a chance of what life has to offer. If only we can keep an open mind and see the wonderful possibilities in a moments notice. How sweet life can be if we just put away fear of the unknown and take the plunge...take a chance, true happiness might just be around the corner, waitin

A Brush of Love led me on a refreshing ride to a Floridian shore. Seduced by the eloquence of the author’s writing, I found it hard to leave the world he created. I felt the sand sinking beneath my feet, took in the beauty of the sun as it slipped into the horizon, and felt their pain as they went separate ways. Like Anne, Alex left me wanting more but no one is promised tomorrow.

A Brush of Love was written with the insight of an artist and the soul of someone who is a kee

This was OK. It was quick and simple but there was too much telling and not enough showing. The author used the phrases "I saw" or "I felt" constantly rather than describe the scene/feeling so I felt very distant from the writing and story as there was no depth. I'm not sure where the romance or love came into this book as everything was over before it had begun and I couldn't feel anything at the end as there had been no time to develop a relationship with the characters.

It's an OK read if you

I thought that this was a nice story. A very short romance. I didn't not like the ending, but that was going because of the sadness that it brought, however I still understand the meaning of it. Life can change in a moment and sometimes making a rash decision can be the best decision you ever make.

Very good story!

Nothing about this was a love story to me.
Cute Story with a serious lack of editing and nothing in it spoke love to me. The only reason I gave it 2 stars is because the ending gave me a little gasp and was pretty shocking but, other than that it was not that great.
I wasn't feeling this story until the unexpected ending. I give it props for surprising me. It was a bit too overdescriptive. Too many unneccesary (sp?) words. Didn't enjoy all the... it was just too much ...more

Sex on the beach does not mean romancr or even love. There was no true communication, just a one night stand and an ending that was just depressing and rather unoriginal.
