A Modern Love Story blew me away. I read it last night and this morning and fell in love with the characters… well not all of them. For a little bit I was pretty angry at the lead male, Luc. The story follows the characters from the time they are 12 which leaves a different perspective than other romance books I have read.

Now, the story line with Payten was totally surprising. Jolyn has quite the imagination to come up with the twists and turns and downright evilness that Payten posseses. It added a level of drama that you don’t always find in romance novels. I went from wanting to punch Luc for his behavior to feeling sorry for him. How does that happen?!? All along, I felt the desire to hold poor Robbie who keeps getting the short end of the stick. The addition of Conrad and Lizbeth made for a fun dialogue and you could almost feel the emotions of these characters stuck in the middle of their friends’ problems.

What am I saying? Read it! You have to read it to fully understand what I am talking about. It is super fantastic! This is much more than a romance novel… romance, intrigue, suspense, treachery… you will find it.
