Editorial Reviews


"Marx's romance is full of twists and turns, some expected, and some not, with an emotionally complex central conflict, lively ... characters and a carefully drawn Chicago setting." ~Kirkus Reviews

As I commented on Cutters Vs. Jocks, A Prequel Novella to Binding Arbitration, the cover does not adequately portray the angst that is contained in these stories. Where Cutters Vs Jocks is about fear, love and mistakes of the young, proud and selfish; Binding Arbitration is about forgiving, loving and overcoming fear. Both are about love, pain and loss but on a much different level.

In Cutters, Libby has kept Aiden out of her life after becoming pregnant and Aiden lets her go, but in Binding Arbitration, Libby needs Aiden's DNA to save their son's diseased life. Aiden has never been able to forget Libby, but is still mad at her for disappearing on him and never revealing that she kept their baby. Now that she is back in his life, he realizes there has never been anyone else for him but her, but convincing her of that seems impossible.

There is so much to this story: the profound quotes at the beginning of each chapter, the cycle of fathers abandoning their children, forgiveness and blame, the disease of leukemia, family expectations, death and anger, angels and God, all coming together to define LOVE. It speaks to the reader on so many different levels and shouts at you to re-evaluate your own life and relationships.

I must confess, though, that as a mother of a six year old myself, I could not bring myself to do more than skim many of the chapters in the end. As I have said before, I read to experience other's happiness and adventure and avoid stories that make me cry, and this story was a little too close to my own life for comfort.

After finishing up Cutters vs. Jocks, I knew I needed to read the continuation of Libby and Band-Aid's story. I'm an avid reader, and normally, I don't leave reviews, but this novel is one of the most beautiful and poignant stories I have had the privilege to come across to read. I wanted to express to others who come across it to give it a chance especially romantics like myself. Marx does a wonderful job by evoking raw emotion into the characters' lives as well as makes you feel as if you're part of their lives. Its about growing up, forgiveness, learning to love, and accepting love all at the same time. You will not regret investing your day in reading this book. I am hoping Marx will continue their story or other secondary characters. I thoroughly enjoyed this book as it is one of the best contemporary romances I have read in a long time. Unlike some that I have read which relies on interaction of physicalness between the protagonists, Binding Arbitration brings more depth and emotional insight to what the average person experiences in real life through her characters. You will fall in love with Libby, Band-Aid, and especially Cass. As I stated earlier, please give this book a chance.

he loves his career so much that he was willing to throw away the woman he loves and tell her to have an abortion. he was so scared of being told to do the "right thing", and be stuck marrying her, and giving up his precious career, that he never told anyone she was pregnant. he was already rich, but his love for his career choice made him ignore his own child for 6 years, he even said he did everything he could to forget him.

he throws a hissy fit that she never told him she kept the child rather than giving it up for adoption. when he was the one running scared and ignoring her like a pathetic coward. he terminated his rights as a father and never bothered to call her to see if she was going to keep it or adopt it. what right does he have to get angry??? i found him disgusting and pathetic. this is way too much like reality, who wants to read about such a cowardly hero?

here is a lovely snippet of our hero:

""I didn't want to get married. I wanted to concentrate on my baseball career. So I signed the papers, thinking she'd give the baby away, and I would forget all about it. I wanted it to go away, and it did."

who wouldnt want to marry this gem of a man? how about this next snippet:

"I should've found them, made sure Libby was okay and that the baby was in a good home, but I was just a little boy with a bat and a ball and a game to play"

WHAT???????? He was adult enough to have sex, get a girl pregnant, tell her to abort it, and then proceed to move on with his life. but he was just a boy when it came to throwing away his son???

it really rubbed me the wrong way when he looked down at the heroines father for leaving when she was a baby and not staying around.

I've read this book about ten times. I love it. It is so well written and no matter how many times I read it I still laugh and cry. I will say that I wish that there was an epilogue. But besides that I loved everything about this book. I read a lot and this book is so much better than so many of the other books out there. I wish it could take off and get noticed because it puts some very popular books to shame. I guarantee if you read this you won't be disappointed.
