About the Author

"I love writing fiction - it's the perfect occupation for someone who can't decide what they want to be when they grow up. With each new story, I get to explore a new world." Vanessa Grant's love affair with writing fiction began during a protracted illness at the age of 12 when she decided to write a novel of her own, sitting up in bed using the typewriter she'd been given for her birthday. Not a computer, not an electric typewriter, but a then-state-of-the-art manual typewriter. The story ground to a halt on page 50 but Vanessa never forgot the excitement of bringing her own characters to life. In 1985 Vanessa's novel Pacific Disturbance was published in hardcover by Mills and Boon. She now has over 10 million books sold and has been translated into 15 languages. She also has written what one critic described as, "by far the best writing book I've ever read." Writing Romance, published by Self Counsel Press, won the Under the Covers Best Writing Book Award, and is currently in its third edition. Over the years her love of storytelling and curiosity about people led Vanessa to study psychology, volunteer on a crisis line, complete individual and relationship counselor training, volunteer as a peer counselor for a family life organization, and tell stories about life, love, and secrets. Vanessa is also a university professor, a publisher of educational materials and eBooks, and has given workshops to writers' groups in Australia, New Zealand, the USA and Canada. Vanessa and her husband live on Vancouver Island in the Pacific Northwest with their two Australian Shepherd dogs.

More About the Author

"Writing fiction is a perfect life choice for someone like Vanessa Grant who can't make up her mind what she wants to do when she grows up!"

There are so many choices and I want to do them all. In real life I've taken a lot of roads: I've studied psychology, volunteered on a crisis line and as a peer counselor for a family life organization, worked as an accountant and a software developer, more recently taught accounting and fraud investigation at a university, and best of all-told stories about life, love, and secrets. In my stories, my heroes and heroines have lived many of the lives I'm fascinated by.

I live with my wonderful husband and two aging-but-energetic Australian Shepherds on Vancouver Island ... and every so often we indulge in wanderlust and leave the island to go exploring.

In addition to publication in print, most of my novels have now been released as eBooks for Kindle, Sony, Apple and Kobo as well as other formats. Free samples are available for all my eBook editions.

I love discussing storytelling, books, and the creative process, so don't hesitate to post a comment on my blog or one of my pages here on the site, or contact me through my Web site at VanessaGrant.com, or on Twitter @Vanessa_Grant

Be aware: my opinions may contain veiled spoilers, so read at your own risk

I have to say, this was a love story like I haven't read in years!
I'm a bit sick of all the sex and drama that it's been used in romance books lately. Is like, if there isn't a huge trauma from the past and a super hot tattoed hunk or a Mr. Sexy Money on the plot, the story won't work. I mean, come on!!

If You Loved Me is a great story because is more realistic, because is about two people that loved each other in the past and are reconnected 20 years later --when they're responsible adults-- and all that was between them comes back up like an unstoppable fire. But their lives are so different there's no way a relationship would work for them. They knew that as teenagers and they know it now. Still, there is a force pulling them together that neither of them can control.

There were a couple of things I didn't loved, but is not like there were that bad. I mean, first the whole thing with her son being missing... the part where they find the boys it was a bit too easyly resolved, I think, because after all that tension and fear it only took like two pages to have it all sorted out... I believe it could have been better, but I also understand that the story wasn't really about that, it was about Emma and Gray, so they needed to finish what they'd started.
Second, both of them are very stubborn people that are fixated in the fact there is no way to unify their worlds. But then an explanation coming out of Gray's past is what brings it all to a perfectly round end...

Emma Garrett had turned down her first and greatest love, wildlife photographer Gray McKenzie, in order to follow her dream of becoming a doctor, Gray offered Emma an idyllic life in the wilderness, but she wanted to become a doctor and was not willing to give up her dreams. Now widowed, and with her son missing on a kayaking trip, Emma needs Gray's help. Together, they will have to find find Emma's son and his friend as well as find their way back to the passion they once shared.

While I was reading I was hoping that the author would deliver a romance filled with passion and more depth. I found it lacking in those areas but the plot is pretty good and this book is a good read.

Thinking about this book, the landscape and environment were more memorable than the characters. But the characters were all right. If you get into intense angsty romances, with ostensibly unresolovable conflicts, you'll probably like it. The heroine is a surgeon, but she never seemed like a surgeon to me.

I was given a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. This is a love story like no other. Would you go back in time to your first love to ask for help for your son? That is exactly what Emma did. Her son was missing and she felt the only one who could find him was Gray, her first love. The story unfolds from there. I am not going to spoil it for you by telling what happens just suffice it to say it is an adventure.

I received this book free from Story Cartel in exchange for an honest review.

I heart warming story about Emma and Gray who haven't seen each other in years but come together to find Emma's son who is lost while kayaking. As they search for him, they both realize that they never really stopped loving each other and now have fallen in love all over again as the people they have become.

This was an excellent love story. I loved the second chance aspect of their relationship. I thought the question Gray had about the paternity of Emma's son was excellently handled. I would highly recommend this book to everyone. I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.

I was given a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

I was looking forward to reading this book because the characters sounded interesting and the plot had a lot of promise. The truth is that the plot was interesting even though it was predictable in many way. However I was very disappointed with the characters. We meet the characters in the Prologue. Emma and Grey meet when she was 18 and he was 21. From that first time, I could feel the chemistry between the two. I enjoyed the bubbly innocence of Emma and the calm down-to-earth curiosity of Grey. I could tell he liked her because he spent the whole time asking questions about her. We also meet her boyfriend Paul at the same time who happens to be a close friend to Grey. I thought Paul was selfish, boorish with very little respect for Emma. I didn't like him at all.

However, all of a sudden we switch from the Prologue to Chapter 1, and it is twenty years later. Emma is a widow with a 17 year old son, He and a friend had gone kayaking in the wilderness and had not called his mother at the predetermined time. Emma, acting like every mother, , is sure something is wrong and calls the Coast Guard. No one can find him, so Emma, who is a pediatric orhopedic surgeon, sees a magazine picture of Grey and realizes this is his home turf. So she goes to him for help.

And this is where my problem begins. Emma is still the bubbly honest woman who speaks her mind even though she is no longer innocent. Grey, on the other hand, is a moody stiff and sometimes even hurtful person who treats Emma as if she committed some horrible crime against Grey when, actually, he is the one that left the relationship after making some unbelievable demands of Emma.
