I had completely forgotten how much I loved and still love this story! I couldn't remember the ending so chapter 37 had me crying like a baby while the epilogue had me smilling like an idiot :)
Thank you so much for sharing this fantastic story and I will forever be greatful that it had a happy ending.

I like this last chapter. I was a bit confused for the first half. I was like who the hell is Parker and Livvie? But, then my slow brain finally caught up. This story is really cute. good job

"In the end, the hero didn't get the girl (or boy, depending on how you read it), the monster was victorious, and there was no happily ever after. Well, actually…I take that back. I do plan on living happily, for forever, and after. And I will. I have to.
I owe it to someone."
I love this quote. great story

...no. this ending is unrealistic because carly and clark were so in love that it goes with the law of nature and physics and math wtf they had to get married and have 12 kids thats the only possible, rational explanation for their future

So, I actually finished reading this a little while ago, but I haven't had the time to review until now.
I like the idea of your story. The plot is enticing and I want to keep reading. When/if you rewrite it, though, I think you should consider how much time/place/how many words you use on the different scene. The beginning scene about the background and the whole 'we-hate-each-other' part takes up quite a lot of words and then it seems that suddenly you remember what was supposed to happen and the climax is EXSTREMELY rushed. So use a little less space on telling the reader how their life is when they hate each other, use some space to tell about the transition, because that is really rushed as well (while reading her declaration of love I was wondering whether is was a joke she pulled of to trick him or maybe that she was just looking for a one night stand) and then a lot more space on the end - especially the part where she decides to leave (give a bit more reasonining) and the happy-ending-part could probably have used a whole chapter more.
Otherwise I think you should consider rewriting the prologue/first chapter because there's SO much history and background and it's really hard to get through and that's not exactly how you pull people in to read the entire story. I actually procastinated reading it because of that.
Also I think it would be great if you got some clues in earlier in the story about the whole deal between Marcus, her father, the Walkers and so on.
I really like the plot line though and I think you have been great at getting the whole rich-girl character in. And her parents. Oh, litlle extra thing: try the been more clear about her transition from rich-girl to girl-who-cares and maybe describe early in the story that she had been differnet while at college.
Lovely work. Keep it up.

Loved your story. I think the ending was perfect, especially since it made it seem much more realistic. I also really like the prologue, the way you explained everything. Again, great story, loved it.

So, I was perusing through another author's favorites when I stumbled upon your story. I've spent the last day reading all 39 chapters, and I've really, really enjoyed every bit of it. You took the used-to-be-common-but-now-not-so-common idea of arranged marriages and really told an amazing story with Carly/Liv. I loved the way I could truly hear her voice through each and every chapter. I think the quality of story-telling and writing was fantastic. And even though I'm reading this years after you've finished, I'm so glad I've found it, and I hope this review makes you smile! :)

Certainly haven't seen a story this good in a long time! Thank goodness you don't put it down (like the other great authors usually do TT). Keep writing :)
