omg this chapter is heartbreaking
| Du chapter 19 . 2/26
Aw, this was really sweet. I really enjoyed it, especially how you started your chapters with snippets from the Adam Byrne trilogy. At times it seemed a bit rushed, but I couldn't care less. The story was great, not the usual cliché, and your characters were real, normal human beings. Thank your for sharing this story! Best wishes :)

Ooh more questions but also some potential answers...
The mole to me implies that to some extent Adam is based on Liam, even just a little bit.
I like the little celeb glossy soundbites at the beginning of chapters - nice idea.

So many questions!
What's the family beef with him being the "less talented son" what is his brother like a brain surgeon/rocket scientist?!
Who is Ash and what did they do to leave a hole in his heart?
Who is The One Person? (Pretty special to have received capitals no?)
What's the deal with the character in the Scoundrel having the same mole as Liam? I'm sensing this isn't just a strange coincident... I think it's been mentioned for a reason.
Lucky for me the story is completed so now I've gushed and ranted in this review I am going to hit send and move onto the next chapter!

Hi! This is an amazing story. Absolutely loved it. Although, I don't know if anyone else mentioned, but you did accidentally call Liam "Adam" once or twice in the story :P But that made it a lot more fun to read! :)

Awesome story! It's like you can't write something bad.

Loved it! :D
| Bookworm-At-Starbucks chapter 19 . 12/29/2011
Absolutely adored it! This is the most cutest thing Ive ever read! A bit short and if lengthened it could have been more awesome, but lived it!

Wow. That was some story :D
I think you did a really good job with this. While at some parts I got ever so slightly lost, I understood everything by the ending. Your characters were well-described and your plot was clear and simple, but you made it all sound like a true novel.
I loved Belle's character for some reason. I could barely relate to her (which is how I usually end up loving characters) and yet I loved her all the same. While she may appear strong, she really is lost -in every sense. She's a common type of character, yet somehow you really made her unique.
Liam is what every girl wants in a guy. His relationship with Belle was really hard, I know, but he endured the pain. I loved him especially because he really has a mind of his own, and he fought for what he loved in every sense, even if that meant disagreeing with Belle. He had a mind of his own, and although I did find this annoying when he refused to forgive Belle when he found out that she was the author, I guess that I wouldn't have it any other way.
Now, onto the more technical things: Grammar and spelling: flawless with only one or two exceptions, amazing job on that. Plot: creative and brilliantly carried out. You truly made me feel as if the pain the characters went through was my own.
The only thing I could complain about was that, by the ending, the story just lost that 'spark', you could say. I don't know, but it was maybe just a bit fluffier than I expected it to be. Good, amazing even, but it didn't feel all that... right, I guess. But still, the story overall is amazing and no one can complain. Keep writing, your stories truly are something.

Beautiful, I think you're just a great author...
| loveL chapter 5 . 7/11/2011
Ooooh the tension's definitely building and I can start to see all of their history. The part about Belle and her father stung me; it always builds the story when a main character has personal problems in her past!

I really liked the story and I loved the ending.
Loved the shift in pov to the editor, gave it a sweet touch :D

I absolutely love your writing style! This was a really great AND original idea. The only thing that could be made better was that the characters still seemed a little under-developed. But other than that, I loved it.
