Indelible Love - Emily's Story Reviews

    I purposely waited to review this book. I intended on reading Jake's POV, but ultimately couldn't bear another excruciating detailed and unrealistic book about Emily.Emily, 24, teacher and independent woman. Only, not so much. I was told these things, but other than owning her own home at a young age, there was nothing independent or mature about this woman. The writer wrote her as a lost 18 year old. I grew more irritated and disenchanted with every page. Even her choice to remain pure wasn't her choice, but her mother's. I didn't feel conviction of her character at any point.Jake, the perfect man, was also miswritten. A 30-year old heart surgeon who is hot and behaves like he's still a 2nd year med student. Probably intentional since Emily's emotionally stunted too. Completely unrealistic. This guy would have turned tail and run soooo far away from train-wreck Emily in 2.2 seconds. I might have enjoyed this book if I were 18, which was a very loooooooong time ago. Very unrealistic waste of my time.

    *** Warning Ranty and Spoilers...I'm seriously torn between 2 and 3 stars. For most of this book I vacillated between WTF? and Really?The book starts off with a flashback. Max and Emily have been inseparable for all four years of college. She thinks he is going to propose after graduation, but instead, he breaks up with her - with a whole "I need to be free" speech.So for 18 months she is all:Seriously, she is thrashed, and over a year later, she seems just as raw as when it first happened.Then she meets Dr. Jake Reid. He is handsome, and rich and smitten. And honestly, he would need to be smitten, because some of the shit that comes out of her mouth on their dates- rude and bitchy in the extreme! (for no apparent reason) Although they have been "dating" for around 6 weeks, they have only had 4 dates, all of which were interrupted at some point because he got called into the hospital (he is a cardiac surgeon) She comes off as seriously unappealing - I totally don't get Jake's attraction (she waxes on about her ex, complains about everything, comments on his money all the time..)For some reason, she goes with him to a "Christmas Ball" where she sees Max (and his girlfriend - who he started dating a month after they broke up) for the first time in over a year.Then Jake gets allAnd starts doing weird stuff, like inviting her to Hawaii to spend the holiday's with his family, and giving her a "promise ring" when he asks if they can be boyfriends/girlfriend (yeah, he's 30, and it's just plane weird) Then, after like date 7, he asks her to marry him. (also a WTF moment). She says no (the only sensible thing she does the whole book) - and Jake is upset. But instead of behaving like an adult he is all:For a 30 year old physician, Jake pretty much throws a tantrum like a five year old anytime something doesn't go his way.Anyway, there are TWO additional proposals in the book, Emily hides halfway around the world at one point, and finally, after a bunch of drama, there is a wedding.Now, I can't slam this entirely, because I was engaged enough to finish this book (and it was not short) -and I shed quite a few tears throughout. Emily gets less irritating as the book goes on (but Jake and Max get MORE irritating) I really would have been happy if she found guy number three to end up with, because both Jack and Max treated her like crap an one point or another.The one technical beef I had was that there were some really odd word choices in some parts. Like once when Emily explains that she is waiting to have sex until after she is married, she actually says she is going to be a "virgin maid". There were quite a few instances like that where I was just left with a WTF moment.I'm seriously considering getting the next book (from Jake's prospective) because I really want to know what the heck was going on in his head...

    The description was tempting, however the book was, how shall we say, "vanilla." There was no excitement. The characters had no electricity. They spoke without feeling, stinted vocabulary...who speaks like that? I couldn't connect with any of them. Hot Jake who was 30, acted like a 5 year old. He's a DOCTOR dammit! And a 30 year old who goes without sex for what? almost a year? REALLY? Not realistic at all. Even Max....4 years....REALLY? I can only guess this was written for 16-year olds, because the characters certainly were not adults. Kissing was bland, sex was nonexistent. Food gluttony and traveling kept them exhausted so sex wouldn't be an option. Emily drove me crazy with her indecisiveness and crying and holding on to her virtue (was this a subliminal message to teens? Pure till marriage?). Admirable, but not practical with a 30 year old. She's supposed to be a college grad and 24!!! And really? she falls in love with Grams with just one phone call? I know she's lonely and with no family, but come on!The story dragged on and on with useless descriptions veering away from the important subject of the budding relationship of Emily & Jake. Even that was too much without giving Max equal time. Max was the past throughout the whole story so how did he ever have a chance? When they were together they went into the past not bothering to work towards the future. You ALWAYS knew it was Jake she'd end up with right from the beginning.My favorite scene was when they were deciding on the wedding date and Jake demanded it be in 3 week because he wasn't getting any and wasn't willing to wait any longer. That conversation was hysterical!!!I have Jake's POV but I can't bear to read it, because this one dragged on so badly and the language was so empty.Good story for a young teen. Safe, no condoms necessary.

    The further I got into this book, the harder I wanted to slap Emily. She was so immature and just annoying. Her constant crying was the least of my problems with her. She wasn't consistent, poorly thought out, and stupid. I had to skip over some parts because I would've thrown my Kindle through the window if I didn't. When she couldn't stand to be apart from him for one day, that's when I completely lost it...I kept reading for two reasons (actually, for the last 25% of the book I skimmed it. I figured I wasn't missing anything, and I was right): 1) I had already wasted so much time on this book, I wanted to just get it over with and 2) I was so hoping Max would come back into the story. Even her outlook on him kept changing -- he's a great friend, but he broke her heart...make up your damn mind! And the way she acted in New York with the eternity ring...worse than a baby throwing a tantrum! And Emily, if you really "love" Jake, you might consider stepping back from Max and show him (Jake) that you treasure him more than your ex. I thought it was EXTREMELY disrespectful that she just called his parents "Mom" and "Dad" and his grandmother "Gram" practically the first time she met them. I don't care how much they like you. and Jake did it too! Boundaries people! And Jake...oh my gosh. At the beginning, he seemed like a nice, mature, all around good guy doctor. As the book progressed, it was like a contest between him and Emily as to who could be more childish and annoying. Every time something with Max came up, Jake would either mope around and ignore Emily, or yell at her and make her cry, sending her to Japan. And you don't spread "the woman you love"'s sexual prowess (or lack thereof) around like it was hot gossip, embarrassing her in front of your family. There's nothing wrong with remaining a virgin until you're married, however it comes about. The only character in this book that I liked was Max and for some reason felt bad that he didn't end up with Emily. Now I'm convinced he lucked out. I didn't connect with any of these characters and couldn't care less if they flew into a mountain. That being said, who has time and money to fly to all these places for the heck of it? The Reid's may have been rich, but showed absolutely no class! The food angle was obnoxious. The girl should've weighed 5,000 pounds.

    Three stars since I got it for free on amazon. Please forgive me for being so damn insensitive but she cried way too much. It was borderline ridiculous...okay it was ridiculous. And also annoying. I had to keep reminding myself that she was 24 and not 16. The beginning of the book held my interest then it slowly trickled to boredom and then I just found myself skimming. I honestly felt more passion from Emily and Max then I did with Emily and Jake. For a good looking doctor type he was so boring!!!! And immature. He is thirty for goodness sake...and did I mention he is a doctor? Why the hell did he have to act like an eighteen year old boy? The book wasn't horrible, I did enjoy it to a certain point. Would I recommend the book to friends? No. The characters were flat and I felt no passion what so ever with the two MC. Emily is also waiting for marriage until she does the deed. I found that admirable but unrealistic that her boyfriend of four years would wait. Then again there are decent men out there who if they really love a woman, would wait. I still would have liked to see some more passion filled kisses but instead it felt like those pictures you see when two children are kissing and you can't help but say "awh". So juvenile. Maybe the book should have been written with a younger couple because they sure seemed younger than they were. I will not continue with the second book.

    this was the biggest piece of crap I've ever read! When I read the preview for this book it intrigued me. I kept waiting for it to move away from in depth descriptions of the millions of calories that the main character ate on any given day (while of course staying small and petite, with absolutely NO mention of going to the gym) and get to the love story. The men in this story were unbelievably patient with this unbearably immature main character, which was nice, but SO not based on ANY reality whatsoever!

    I started out really enjoying this book, but by the middle I was bored out of my mind. I pushed through it just to finish, but it never picked up. I liked the love triangle angle, but once that was resolved, the whole book was just too mushy and dragged on forever. It was like the story that wouldn't end...I saw that there is a second book from the other character's point of view and normally, I love those, but I don't think I want to put myself through that torture. I'm one and done in this series.

    The recommended age for this book should be 15. Seriously... The maturity of the heroine (if you can call her that), is unbelievable.After reading the first couple chapters, I decided to delete the book without finishing. With that in mind, I jumped ahead to the ending, to satisfy my curiosity.After reading the ending, I decided to go back and finish the book (skipping many pages of dribble along the way) but finishing none-the-less.Here are my annoyances with this book:There are annoying words throughout. The author threw in a rarely used word to make the book sound smarter than it was.The characters were not very likable. The only one that I occasionally liked was Jake (and even he appeared desperate at times, with all that he tolerated).Lack of character development.Virgin Maid. Need I say more? Did the author have to use this term? This is not the 1800s...Complete vanilla. I love a good romance, but for goodness sake! I'm stopping here...because I just don't have the time or energy to think about this any more.

    This book was very refreshing. It didn't have sex on every page. It was a true love story. Emily is a broken up girl who had a very tough life. Her parents and grandparents pass away leaving her alone. She goes through college with one boyfriend until he ends it. She then falls in love with Jake. Complications and problems revile themselves. I throughly enjoyed reading this book. It was very pleasant and well written. Characters, plot, description,book cover ( LOVED IT), and everything else. I enjoyed. I really enjoyed the banter between the sibling and also the sneak peak into " Jakes Story,"

    BORING! The whole story was unrealistic. In my wildest dreams I could not have imagined the ridiculousness of this story and I have crazy wild dreams. There is NO WAY a teacher could afford to fly around as much as this woman did and on a whim. Her college friends' ability to do the same was unrealistic. I decided that Jake's story was not worth my time. Honestly. Do not waste your time with this book. You might find yourself thinking "blah, blah, blah" like I did.

    I got this book because it was free on Amazon and who doesn't love free! I also LOVE books that are really long. I don't know why, maybe because if I know I cannot read it within 4 hours, I will not stay up 1/2 the night to finish it? Since I am a stickler for grammatical errors in books, I appreciated the author letting me know there were going to be errors right in the beginning. It helped prepare me. I actually think had I not had the "disclaimer" from the author I would have rated this book at a 3 because there were quite a few errors, mainly punctuation. The only error that was a little confusing was towards the end when the author says the name of one of the gentleman but in reality it should have said the other.Now, back to the book, I really liked it. I actually want to see what happens in the sequel but according to the reviews it is almost carbon-copy of this book and I am not ready to spend $4 on something that 98% of it I have already read. I would love to see a continuation of their lives because not only do you learn to love the main characters in this book, you also love the supporting characters and you would like to see what happens with their lives also.

    I enjoyed this book and so fell in love with Jake. I loved how he respected Emily's beliefs and so understood her struggles. I was proud of how she made it through with her beliefs even though the battle and struggles were long and hard. (ahem, no pun. . .maybe. LOL) What I didn't like so much about this book; again, how there was a lot of assuming and no real communication. It was super-dee-duper frustrating when Emily or Jake would begin to say something and then never mind or forget it. Ugh!!! That is where they always got into trouble. They knew where they could find each other. They knew their feelings, no matter how convoluted, why not force each other to hear what the other had to say? Why beat around the bush. Why allow others to influence you more than listening an believing the ones living the relationship?!! Seriously, same thing in life. I constantly have to advise the young-ins against the confusing games. Regardless, I loved how Jake fought hard for Emily. Emily's innocence was refreshing. Max was annoying and I honestly don't know what he expected? But I am glad that D.W. set the stage for Jane and Max. Because Emily's beliefs, no awkwardness :)

    Book 1 of 2 Indelible Love - Emily's Story I love, love, love D. W. Cee, everything I've read has been brilliant, I loved Indelible Love and i suggest reading this before reading Jake's version, i preferred Jake's version but simply because i found more emotion in the book, i don't think i'd of understood everything if i hadn't read Emily's version first though.It's a book about two people that are meant for each other....that end up hitting every bump in the road through out their relationship and how they come out the other side of it, eventually, i loved that there was also a spin off set of books based around Jake's sister and Emily's ex, it's a great read and i'd suggest following D. W. Cee as she's very active online and often offers freebies and blog posts.Story: 4.5Characters: 5Cover: 5TJ x

    I have just done reading this book and i think it was incredibly lovely. Author has expressed every emotions and feeling very clearly, i nearly thought i was in a part of this excellent love story. The thing i have learned from this book is that, life is full of unexpected things, which may change our life radically. Also I've understood that love can cope with any problems and in relationship one of the most important thing is respect for eachother. I recommend this book to everyone. Book is full of funny, sad and romantic moments and i am glad that i have found D.W.Cee and her amazing love stories. Jake and Emily became my favourite couple.So, start reading and enjoy unforgetable moments ❤️

    LOVE, LOVE...I enjoyed this love story between Emily and Jake. So many times we look at love In many different ways, this story shares the fears, hurt, pain, joy, and trust it takes to be in a serious relationship. The best part of the story for me was the love they had for each other even when the flesh wanted to give in to their fleshy desires, she stood strong in her own truth, and because Jake loved her he was willing to wait, it wasn't easy, but the love they shared with each other gave them strength to stand. Great Job!!Angela Y. HodgeAuthor of Daybreak: A Prayer Book For Children

    I'm being generous on the two stars because it was a freebie from Amazon. I would have been irritated if I paid for it. I agree with the Rhee negative reviews regarding the immaturity l both main characters and the completely unrealistic storyline of the main character's innocence and finding a 30 yr old doctor being ok with that. For once I was actually annoyed that the book was lengthy. Really wanted this one to end sooner. I will not be reading the next book in the series.

    The book started off well, but the further I read the more I lost interest. Too much filler.... detailed descriptions of almost everything took over and the actual story got lost in the descriptions. I found myself flipping through it, only glancing at each paragraph til I could find the storyline again. Honestly don't think I could handle Jake's story too. Disappointing read. Could not recommend it. This book could easily have done with 100 less pages.

    Indelible love was okay. It was a love hate thing with this book. I had a lot of WTF moments, but i had to continue reading just to see what ludicrousness would happen next. I would like to add that I am an emotional person but Emily! Come on! She cried for every little freaking thing.You will not die or miss anything if you do not ever pick up this book.

    One of the most wasting things in print. The characters are petulant children half the time. Adults acting like toddlers half the time! There is absolutely no chemistry between the main characters. There is either not enough detail or way too much. The fact that Emily wants to remain a virgin is so over talked about and whined about that it became ridiculous. Her insecurities were portrayed so over the top and right up until her wedding day...laughable! Jake is a spoiled man and was written as one...no one wants someone like him in real life. Complete waste of time reading this.

    Emily Logan is an adult orphan, loves food like no tomorrow and is always cautious of her heart even though she believes in happy endings. Just over eighteen months ago is when Emily finished undergrad but also got dumped by the love of her life Max, who she was with for four years of undergrad. Even now as it's been over a year and a half she still struggles when she hears about Max, but even though she has been with just the one guy she still feels that at some point in her life she will find love again but she just is guarding her heart more than anything at the risk of being hurt again. The last thing that she was expecting was to meet Dr Jake Reid, he is the exact opposite of Max and all he wants to do is show her that she can have her happy ever after. He also knew that from the first moment he set eyes on Emily that she was the one and knew that he loves her.Emily has known Jake for around two months now and even though they love being in each others company they still haven't determined their relationship. Emily arrives home after spending the day getting pampered for the Christmas party that her best friend Sarah and her boyfriend Charlie have organised this year, and even though she is dreading it she is glad that Jake is going with her. Emily has explained in the few months of being together that after spending four years in a relationship with Max it is still hard hearing his name and anything to do with him but Jake promises that no matter what he will be there to support her. They both head to the party and when they get there everything seems to be going smoothly that it until Emily comes face to face with Max and his new girlfriend Jennifer. Jake can tell that Emily is uncomfortable with this and comes to her rescue and whilst Jake stands in front of Max, Emily can't tell who is more uncomfortable Max because he's meeting Jake or Jake because of what he done to Emily. Jake takes Emily out of the way so that she can process her feelings and surroundings and when she reveals that it's hard because in a way where Jennifer is it should be her but she reassures him that she's over him, but it's just hard. During a dance Jake's pager goes off and even though they both aren't happy about it she knows that he might have to leave so while he goes to phone the hospital Peter instantly dances with her only to lure her into Max's arms and even though they both protest Peter quickly dances away with Jennifer. Emily really is not happy about it and refuses to say anything to him at first but then Max knows how she works by now and manages to get her to let down her guard as when Jake comes back he finds her with her head on his shoulder. Even though she tries to tell Jake that nothing happened Jake reassures her that it's alright but Emily can't seem to shake off the guilty feeling she has.Jake ends up telling her that he has to go back to the hospital and the last thing that she was expecting was to be eating a meal late at night with her ex boyfriend, but strangely enough it turns out to be quite pleasant after a bit. Emily now feels that she has closure and can move on with her relationship with Jake. The next morning as Jake promised he has the whole weekend off and comes to pick her up at her house but he wasn't expecting to see Max and Peter at her house but when she explains what happened he finally calms down a little.Everything seems to be going well but when Jake learns that Emily never slept with Max he is shocked but a bit upset when he learns she refuses to sleep with him until she gets married as she wants to honour her mom's last wish. On Christmas day as Jake is driving Emily back to her house before she heads over to his family's later on he proposes to her and even though she says no she knows for a fact that it will be temporarily but she doesn't tell him that. After a trip over New Years Jake is left heartbroken as when he heads to where her and her friends have gone after she didn't message him all day as he was worried about to learn the next day Max got down on one knee and proposed to his Emily, it literally breaks his heart. When he learns that Emily didn't even say no he can't believe his ears as he thinks that she loves him so he walks away heading home thinking that she is going back with her friends. Instead of Emily going back with her friends she stays behind waiting for him thinking that he will come back to her but when she ends up spending the whole day there she is left heartbroken even more as the guy the previously said on Christmas that he will never leave her and that he loves her has ended up going back on his words. Emily is attempting to cope with the fact that Jake has given up on their relationship even though she has been trying to get in contact with him but when a job offer that she applied to last year comes up she decides that in order to mend her broken heart she needs to take this job in Japan. Will Jake realise what he's lost before Emily leaves for Japan or will he live to regret it. Also will Emily be able to mend her broken heart or will moving away just make her love Jake even more.You won't want to miss this book as it's full of so many turns and twists. You will be glad to know that the next book in this series is from Jake's perspective so if you fell in love with this book then you should definitely check Jake's story out. I fell in love with it from the very first page and I hope you do as well.

    I was never into the wholeage-gap thing in books but reading the description made me look into it so I did. & I am glad to say that it was the best decision ever. Will read again.
