One of the best stories I have read in soooo long! I loved the limited view that the reader was only allowed to see through, making her constantly wanting to read more to put everything together. I love the characters and how you built them. I would have liked to know a bit more about Oliver, but regardless, you created a great set of characters and developed them well. The plot was remarkable! I will definitely be checking out your other stories.

First and fore most: I absolutely enjoyed myself reading your story. The world you created enchanted and entranced me. The characters, though almost unbelievable, truly caught my attention. I loved the triplets, and was disappointed when they didn't come back after the initial meeting.

this is a really amazing story! i wont give much constructive feedback since u already have a better version published. i just find josiah a really interesting character n i especially like the poppy-can-trust-him-bcos-she-KNOWS-he-lies concept. the ending is a bit abrupt, which is why i'd LOVE to buy ur new n improved version! to find out how much it is now n enjoy their characterisation. unfortunately, i currently have no way to pay online, so maybe in future, when i have paypal or something, i'll buy it! :)

I really loved this story. :) I have a list of fictionpress stories that I've read before, and the other week I was going through them. Yet, I found that many of them I could not remember as they were too generic, and they didn't have that extra edge that made them memorable. This story, though, I imagine that no matter when I go through my list, I will always remember this story. The dark side to the story sets it apart from others I have read. Not to mention the title is creative, and certainly memorable. I like how in the ending it links back to the title. :) I can't wait to read the sequel!

This was an awesome story! I wasn't expecting all the twist and turns but that just made the story more enjoyable. I stayed up until 4:20am just to read this and it was so worth it.

"Reading your thoughts is simply that, reading your thoughts. Prescott knows the words, and that's it.
Reading your mind means Noah can tell what you're thinking, what you're planning, what your intentions are, so on, even if you don't explicitly state them in a thought.
And reading your heart means I can tell why you're thinking what you are thinking."spencer
Note: kind of a critical review- If you don’t want to read it- do not do so : ) Not to be taken to your heart!
I don't wish you insult you in any manner by writing this. I just thought it'd be a good idea to let out my thoughts. Firstly, I love your style of writing; and your creativity is fabulous.. And I absolutely adore the twins! And Silas is very amusing..so Props for that. However.. no matter how much I dragged myself on, after a limit- ch 24 i think it was- I just couldn't get myself to read this story anymore. It's not that it was terrible or anything. It was just a bit to..twisted for me. I love twists in stories- don't get me wrong. But for her future /husband/ to be /Torturing/ her so much? Emotionally too! And for her to be absolutely and utterly so powerless against it .. I don't see the justice in that. And even after all that he's done to her, she still somehow seems to be falling for him? It's just a.. tad bit strange in my opinion. And I swear to god, the guy has something worse than double-personality disorder _ ..And of course, him claiming that she was his posession was something that would have pissed me off too a lot.. but would that really go by her mind so quickly? It's more understandable that he's manipulating with her emotions. And if she really is falling for him.. .. Then I guess that's just her lol. I doubt my hatred for a person would change into love if a person was like that. I mean damn. That guy pisses me off more than all the people I don't like together _ Anyhoo.
I honesty hope you don’t take this review to the heart—it’s just my opinion after all.. But maybe, someday I’ll pick up this story again and try to continue it.. Till then, good luck with your story and perhaps, you’ll get it published too! It’s only that this story, for now, didn’t seem to be my kind of read.

I just wanted to let you know how much this story has affected me! I love the way you wrote it. And the twist! It was just..brilliant. And you came up with the perfect lines for that perfect moment. I swear, it was like...impeccable. I'm not telling you this just to praise you, but how can I help it if I think that your work is really genius! For the most part, you made me realize about a lot of things. Truth, Lying, Revenge etc. You're really good.
And your sample character pictures are to die for! Hehehe.
I'm so glad that I came across your work. :)
More power to you. :D

Really good ending. I feel bad for Oliver but I was glad that he wasn't mad at her, this part:
"the two become one. I won't get you without him, and I'll never want him."
that was very telling and powerful.
I can understand Kendrick's logic and I like how the ending and the title came together but he still pushed her too far into areas unforgiven.
Most stories you get the end and thats it, the end, but with this i'm still so curious as to what comes next.
| Isabelle88 chapter 27 . 1/1/2011
Oh yeah Kendrick does love her, I never really had doubt of that, the boy is persistent and I don't its all fueled by trying to get one over on Oliver. Poppy fell for him while he was Josiah, I think he fell for her then too.

I just noticed you updated and completed the story, I'm reading all the remaining chapters now.
You're so welcome, its been such a pleasure to read your work.

Just to make this perfectly clear, I don't normally leave reviews, but there are two things about the plot right now that I can't help but mention. First off, I'm kind of glad that Poppy didn't stay with Oliver because if the marriage didn't work out, it would probably dissolve into the sort of messed up, abusive relationship that Kendrick would have been more than happy to have consented her to. I mean, look at it objectively. Oliver comes home from work. She asks, "How was your day?" "Sorry, Honey, can't tell you," he might say, and considering her anger issues and having heard the same secrecy excuse for the past two months, a kitchen knife to the gut would be highly likely. And since he heals so easily, and it's so easy for her to become addicted...
The other thing I'm wondering is how on earth Kendrick could have healed Poppy so automatically. Like, seriously, everything for the past two days has been going in reverse. Since that assumedly also includes bowel movements, you would think that by this point she would be insanely constipated... I guess, thank heavens she didn't eat all that much of Kendrick's huge pancake stack...x_x;
Great writing, though! It's fun to read, and probably if you hadn't submitted everything so quickly, you would have a lot more reviews.

"Isn't it obvious? It means I," interrupted by another kiss, "you."
I was smiling like a fool! haha its so funny and cute! So does he love her or not? thats the question, then the whole him saying that he could have been lieing that people like him dont love, that makes me think he does,idk .
He raised his eyebrow. "Who the hell has trouble crossing a bridge?"
HAHA! wow that was very clever of you! its so true!
Anyway I love this story I will be sad when its over i loved reading it I laughed I got angry I giggled like a fool ect...your a talented writer! Oh it would be so awsome if they made this a movie ! I would so be first in line to wach it!
