Review: When It's Love (When It's Love #1)

20750460When It's Love by Emma Lauren

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Titillating. Mind-boggling. Pure sin.

Such rich, and utterly sensual material.  [The story] really got my full attention and kept me at the end of my seat. Loved how the reader kept the reader guessing and a bit in the dark about Sydney's tragic past. Finding out who she really is and why her mom is the way she is. Most writers explain it all in the beginning, but Sydney's backdrop gradually came to light whenever certain things would trigger memory.

It gave the writer the chance of elaborating the main character's situation with a better understanding for the reader. I, honesty, was able to put two and two together in the very beginning and new the truth behind the emails Sydney received and Henry's behavior and need to stake claim whenever he got the chance. I feel sorry for Sydney having a past without much needed love and nurture, even her grandparents were a bit stand-offish, much less her mother. The words were so raw with emotion that I felt it all coming off at me in waves. The love scenes were extremely well written, for some it is hard to not come off and corny or porn-y, but rest assured it was enticing to read and flowed deliciously.

In the end, I wondered what Sydney was going to do about Henry, and if she will be able to overcome what he did, but it seems that the answer will be in the sequel.

Overall, I really enjoyed this quick read and totally recommend it. I'm looking forward to the next step Sydney takes in the sequel When It's Over. Thank you Emma Lauren for allowing me to read your story, keep up the good work!
