Oh my god, I just saw this post and I'm incredibly excited for you! I just downloaded the kindle app specifically so I could buy your book! I'm sure it is going to be awesome!

There are so many things I want to say to you right now! The most important one is, FINALLY!
I first started reading your stories when I was in high school or middle school. I read everything you put out and was totally enchanted by everything you wrote. I am now in my last year of graduate school. Of course, my taste in literature wasn't all that great in high school, but I've always remembered how much I loved your stories, and for years I have desperately wished I could go back and reread them. When I saw that this story was being published, I knew I had to buy it immediately, if only to find out if you were as good as I remembered. Of course, you are. In fact, you're better. What a treat it was to read the first half of this story in printed form! It took me back to my teenage years in the most wonderful way. I must say, I have missed reading your stories, and I hope that eventually they'll all be published (and when I say this, I include a collection of your short that I so hope you will consider). I will buy anything you write.
If you will allow me one, teeny, tiny criticism, I wish you hadn't split up the story into two books. I didn't feel satisfied at the end of this book. I am anxiously awaiting more, and look forward to the next half of the story being published in 2015!

Is it March yet? Well, reading this story answered my question of how someone gets over four thousand reviews on one story. Write a freaking great, addictive story!
This is so much better than I expected it to be. Not only did I enjoy it, but it's one of my absolute favorite stories that I've ever read. The best part is that it's not over yet. I'm so excited about reading the next book, and I haven't been this excited over a new book in quite awhile. The last book I bought before yours turned out to be disappointing for me, and now they've made it into a movie! Your characters are so much more memorable and interesting. It's so rare to find love interests in romances that are true equals. I love that they are both strong characters, but not perfect. They have flaws, and it feels real when they clash instead of contrived. That is true of all the characters in the story. There are complex layers to all of them, just like there are with real people.
Of course, one of the main reasons to read a romance is for the sizzling chemistry, and you deliver plenty of that. The fact that you were able to sustain it throughout the story is what amazes me. They were electric in every scene together. It's because they were so aware of each other, and that is something important that I learned about writing romance from you. I could never quite pinpoint it before, of why some stories were sexier than others.
And the pacing is excellent! You never rush them into situations, but it never drags either. I love the way everything developed between them, and how you gradually had the other characters reveal different aspects of their personalities. You kept me engaged in the story the entire time I was reading it. I'm so glad I bought this on the weekend so I could read straight through, because I truly could not put it down. I already want to go back and read it again.
I'm so glad that you published this, and that I got a chance to read it. Between this review and the one on Amazon, I think I made my love for this story clear. It is so sexy, entertaining, and well-written!

I just bought your book on Amazon. Are you still reading reviews on Fictionpress? Should I bother posting one? I'm a new reader of your work.

Incredibly happy for you. I bought it this morning as son as I read your post. I always said I would support my favourite authors, especially after Plagiarism Haven disappeared, and I'm more than happy to do it. Best of luck!

Just bought the ebook and I'm looking very much forward to reading this story! :)

As a long time follower of your stories and admirer of you and your stories, I AM SO PROUD OF YOU. From Fictionpress to the community on LiveJournal, I felt like I grew with you and your characters. This is such a proud moment for me as a huge fan and reader of you and your stories.
Your stories are part of my teenage years. Whenever I think back to those years, I think about how I would stay up late at night and read chapter after chapter. I would be giddy when you replied to a review. The stories were inspiring to me. Most of all, you were inspiring to me. The way you write is very natural and very descriptive. I remember feeling the heat of Arizona and the loose, quirkiness of Quentin felt very real.
Anyway, before I get too sentimental, I wanted to say again how proud I am of you :) I will definitely be buying your book!

So so so excited to read the book! Somewhere in the back of my mind I always hoped you would publish your writings so I would get a chance to enjoy the stories again. Congratulations, I'm sure you put in a lot of hard work and dedication. Keep going! Thanks for publishing and sharing your amazing stores with everyone.

Congratulations on the publication! I remember reading this years ago on FP and PH. I've just got the book from Google play so I'm keen to read!
| Jovanna chapter 27 . 12/8/2014
Wow! I was surprised to see an update from a story that I read so long ago. Congratulations! This story was one of my favorite fictionpress stories. I still have several drawings depicting Adrian and Alex. Hope all goes well, and I definitely plan on buying all of your future books!

Wow congrats! I always loved both versions of this story, so I can't wait to read it!

It's such a rush to see Reason and Romance on an Amazon page. It probably doesn't compare to how excited (and terrified) you are, but I am so happy you've made it this far. I've kept my fingers crossed for publication since I first found your stories. Reading it as a whole will be so different from the chapter-by-chapter experience - I'm looking forward to it. Been a fan nearly ten years and will be for much longer. Congratulations!
