    I have to say this book left me emotional battered. Lara's character (strong/vulnerable/funny/positive)... wow took me from laughing at her comments to worrying about her emotional well being whenever her lengthy obsession (emotional break/heartbreak) with Max was discussed. Max's character was strong yet vulnerable... And still able to mess up then realize what he had before it was to late. Good/hot/funny sex scenes too. I really enjoyed the emotional roller coaster.

Max and Lara are each other's halves and will not be whole without the other, they are each other's soul mate. Since she was thirteen years old Lara was in love with Max, the kind of love that grew into an obsession that eventually drove her into melancholy. While Max who was several years older than Lara and in a happy relationship with a high school sweetheart Celeste ( whom he always thought was his soul mate ) was oblivious to Lara's affliction. After discovering Celeste indiscretion and breaking up with her, Max was so devastated he went to a bar and drank himself to oblivion, that same night he met his one true love and his real soul mate. While Max hit rock bottom, Lara was there to pick up his broken heart and turned a simple attraction into a full blown love affair. Since then this two were inseparable, their sexual chemistry and hot sex scenes is enough to light up any dark room and set it on fire...oh yeah, it's hot! You can't help being so involved with Lara and Max as you hear their thoughts from their own POV, to know each has its insecurities gives light to some puzzling moments. But love endures as they say, and so is the strong bond and love between Lara and Max.

    What to say about Max and Lara? They were perfect together! Lara as such a fun character to read. Always so blunt and forward about everything and everyone, such a sweet girl, waiting for the love of her life to love her back. Max... i felt bad for him. In love with his high school girlfriend. How could she do that to him? I really disliked her and her pov´s made me confused and furious. What she did to him was just sooo wrong! She was a total bitch with a cold heart!

Derek and Hadley were such a fun read, it would be interesting to really share a house with them. What i loved most about this book, was the way Max saw Lara. He said that she wasn´t his type of girl, didn´t have the curved body, blue eyes or blond hair, but there was something about her that everytime he was with her it she would make him smile. That was so lovely! I wanted to kill Max while i was reading the last chapters, but he learn his lesson(the hard way) and thank god everything worked out in the end. I love a good HEA!! This e-book was gifted to me by the author, so thank you M.T. Stone, for this sweet couple of lovers that you created with such Pure Passion!!

    Hmmmm,..... this book really didn't leave an impression on me at all. :( It had sex, yet it was boring. There were really no traumatic, dramatic, angsty, or exciting moments. The ONE event that should have been a dramatic turning point was b o r i n g. The H didn't even grovel well. Not a great read. It certainly doesn't live up to it's title. :( Hmmmm,..... this book really didn't leave an impression on me at all. :( It had sex, yet it was boring.

    Sweet Romance I love the characters in this story. The passionate​ Lara who never gave up. Max who was stuck in unhappiness for so long. This story is great at showing both sides of a person as they go through life with many obstacles. When love is found everything works out.

    **2 out of 5 Stars** Read my full review at http://romancereaders101.blogspot.com I don't know, this book was good but it wasn't great. There were parts that just rubbed me the wrong way. It was easy enough to follow but I had a hard time connecting with the characters at times. I liked the plot and it went in a direction i wasn't expecting. There were 2 major things that ruined it for me. First, it had way too many ! points. I mean I felt like they spent half the time screaming at each other.

It was easy enough to follow but I had a hard time connecting with the characters at times. I liked the plot and it went in a direction i wasn't expecting. There were 2 major things that ruined it for me. First, it had way too many ! points. I mean I felt like they spent half the time screaming at each other. Second, Lara. The girl honestly scared me. Lara is beautiful with but you don't really know it until she undergoes her transformation When we meet her she's wearing baggy clothes with these really ugly 70's style glasses. She's a bartender working until she finds a job as a teacher. She has a music degree. The one thing I really liked about this girl was that she has no filter...at all. She thought it and then she said it. She's been in love with Max since she was 13 years old. It's not just love though. It's obsession, to the point that she's been medicated because of it in the past. She's almost to the point of crazy to me...like dangerous crazy. Max is tall, dark and handsome with thick black hair, he plays guitar and is trying to revive his grandfather's custom guitar business. He's built and not muscular but toned. He's superficial to me. He's had a rough go of it lately. At the beginning of the book we find out that Max has dropped out of law school to resurrect the guitar business that his grandfather had. His girlfriend, Celeste, is very unsupportive but he deals with it because they have been together for 9 years. He thinks she's his soul mate and he's in love with her. Lara and Max are reintroduced at the local bar everyone hangs out at. There is a weird connection immediately and he feels drawn to her. After a huge event Max begins taking refuge with Lara and things change between them. Ok so yeah I'm didn't fall for it. Everything happened to fast. I gave it 2 stars because I did like the story line but I didn't buy Max's love for her and I'm pretty sure that Lara is certifiable and needs extreme help. This book just wasn't for me. It's a quick and easy read. If you're into a book that moves really fast and is a HEA then you might enjoy this one. Favorite Quotes: Mom’s right, I need help! (Couldn't agree more) No, Lara wasn't a curvy, blond bombshell. Instead, she was a lanky, quirky, hilarious brunette, who despite her self-proclaimed flaws, left little doubt in my mind that she was my true soul mate.

    I liked this book okay. I really liked Max and I felt so bad about what happened to him. I mostly had a ton of concern while reading this story. Lara scared me! This is a story about a young man who wants to follow his heart and follow in the footsteps of his grandfather, but his pushy father wants him to follow in his footsteps and become a lawyer. Well, Max did not want to be anything like his sleazy dad. So he quit law school and decided to resurrect his grandfather's guitar business. His girl I liked this book okay.

Well, Max did not want to be anything like his sleazy dad. So he quit law school and decided to resurrect his grandfather's guitar business. His girlfriend of 9 years does something so terrible that my heart ached for Max. When he goes to a bar that his friend works in to talk to him about what's been happening in his life, he spots that weird girl who is dressed in baggy cloths and wearing horrible 70's glasses. He can see underneath all of that she is beautiful. Well, this girl has had an unhealthy love for Max since high school but he doesn't know this. Anyway, they end up seeing each other and Lara with her CRAZY self does everything that she can to make Max hers, and she succeeds. Lara is not the typical heroine in my opinion. We are suppose to like her even though she is mentally unstable and needs some help. The refreshing thing about this book is that Max was not some uber rich man who could buy anything his or anyone else's heart desired. He was BROKE, and actually had to work for his money. Most of today's books have that super rich guy as the lead which is so unrealistic. I wasn't convinced that Max actually loved Lara in the end. I am not sure that this relationship will work out. I hope it does because if it does not, Lara is going to do something very bad to Max or herself.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Unusual beginning to this book. It started off with the POV of one girl and the hero, then quickly changed to another girl and the hero. However, based on something the first girl did, as a reader you're really glad that lst girl isn't the heroine of the story. This was a good story that I would recommend, but I must say that just before the climax, I was disappointed with Max's actions and could readily understand why Lara ran away from him.

I was nervous for a few pages that Lara was going to die in the accident, but the HEA did come through. One thing: Lara was a shy, naïve, inexperienced introvert who'd been in love with Max forever, but when he finally started paying attention to her, she quickly adopted mannerisms of someone more sexually mature than her past history (coyness, sexual innuendoes, etc.). Now, you could say, I guess, that Max brought out that side of her, but I thought those actions were out-of-character for her.

    The cover is what sucked me in. It is extremely sensual and full of passion. After reading the synopsis, becoming intrigued rather quickly; I couldn't seem to not dive in. This book was something you read in one sitting. It just sucks you in on the first page and keeps you hooked until the last page. The character are well developed and you fall in love with them.

    I'm a sucker for a great love story and that is exactly what this book gave me. It was so refreshing to read a book without constant turmoil between the main characters. While I do enjoy reading those books, sometimes its good to just read one where the characters are allowed to fall in love sans the drama! There was no breaking up and getting back together over and over again. It was a great story about a developing love and had me hooked from the first sentence. I can't wait to see what's next I'm a sucker for a great love story and that is exactly what this book gave me.

    The cover got me to purchase this Book. I should have looked closer to see that this book is aimed more at the younger market. However. I really did enjoy this Book. Lara had me worried , a Bunny Boiler in the making?! Max had me worried also, out for all he could get? I am glad to say it all worked out in the end........I also read the Epilogue on the Authors website, which for me personally, completed the Book.

Their relationship appeared to relate to the h's difficulty individuating and a stunted emotional growth. H appears to be also emotionally stunted which may explain why his eventual connection to h appears to be more about guilt than love. Needs development. Good effort. New adult style sex scenes.

    I liked this book and I hope she does something for Marin and JT. I bought this book back in 2013 and I just reread it for the first time. I love the additional epilogue, though I still wish there was more to the story. My only real criticism is the inner dialogue, I thought Max's thoughts and statements weren't believable for a grown man. They were a bit all over the place and came across like someone who is still in highschool rather then someone who is trying to run a business.

    I felt like Max was an ass and ungrateful. He was immature and did not deserve her at all. He totally would have cheated on her with that girl he kissed I she didn't get into the accident.

    This story was really disturbing in so many ways. Lara is obviously a mentally unstable young lady who seriously needs professional help. Her thoughts and actions show just how unhealthy she really is. I didn't like how she constantly chased Max and was willing to completely change herself to be with him. Not my cuppa tea. 1.5 stars.

    Great summer/beach/vacation read. I will definitely read future books in this series.

    Too bad that Lara should be almost to die so Max can understand that him love her. I didn't like Max very much, superficial and self-centered and Lara just a bit maniac obsessive for him. I would have expected more fights, arguments. Too plain and Lara isn't the type of woman that I like. Too bad that Lara should be almost to die so Max can understand that him love her.

    3.5 average- 3 stars first 70% - 4 stars for the last 30%. First half was really slow and redundant. I did not connect with the characters until the near end when we had some real angst. Ending was good, but everything most of the time was just too sweet and felt unrealistic..

    Characters were not well-developed. Writing was awful. I can't get over the 5 star ratings for this book. I almost DNF this book. I'm glad I read it for free. I suggest the author read other POV stories and learn how to develop characters. Characters were not well-developed. Writing was awful. I can't get over the 5 star ratings for this book.
