Book Description

Newly Published and Edited as of October 2013

Jasmine Freeman’s world is about to tumble down around her and the one responsible for it is none other than her first love, Derek Titan. She hasn't seen him in ten years, and they are both going to learn the truth of what happened back then.

Jasmine grew up wealthy and oblivious to the destruction her father caused all around him. Derek was from the wrong side of the tracks. In ten years their lives will be reversed. He is now a multi-billionaire tycoon and she works hard, but barely gets by due to her father’s unethical business practices.

Derek comes seeking revenge and instead finds out he has a half grown son and the woman he's been angry with for so many years is not who he thought she was. They both fight against the passion they still feel for each other, but in the end it is irresistible.

Come take the journey with Derek and Jasmine as they rediscover a passion that never died and the lies that kept them apart.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm hooked! December 31, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am not a romance fan, but I do enjoy a book that has a good plot, with romance intertwined. When I first began reading Melody Anne's book, I ended up being engrossed in the story right away. The love scenes are written very tastefully. I only had a short time to read it when I first picked it up. The next time, however, I poured myself a nice glass of wine, grabbed a blanket and started to read, not even realizing how the time was flying. I get pretty frustrated when an author takes too much time to get to certain areas of a plot. Melody Anne knew exactly when to add the twists to the story, making it flow just right. Derek is lovely! I could easily picture the characters, the environment...I could even feel the frustration of Derek and Jasmine. And yes, I still hate David lol. The few romance books that I did read, just turned me off due to the trashiness. But Melody Anne knows exactly how to write those scenes, and is a wonderful story teller. So, now I'm hooked! I will be ordering the rest of this series, and can honestly say, she has a fan in me. This isn't a long read, but I was grateful for not having to skim through filler words that authors frequently use, just to get the book size up there. Good job, Melody Anne!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't Finish February 18, 2012
By Monica
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The grammatical, spelling, and punctuation errors in this book are embarrassing for the author, in my opinion. It doesn't take an editor to know that the plural of employee is NOT "employee's." (It showed up very many times, so it wasn't a one-off typo.) It doesn't take an editor to know that "she seen him" is NOT correct. (It was used in the narrative, not in the dialogue.) I could give many, many more examples, but I'll spare you. I was dying to get out a red pen and mark it up.

In my opinion, the writing was extremely amateurish; I felt like an 9th grade girl wrote it. It was HEAVY on description (and not very interesting description), so I found myself skipping several paragraphs at a time. I called it quits at about the half-way point, and deleted it from my Kindle. I only made it that far, because I'm the type to always finish a book, even when I don't really care for it. Unfortunately, I just wasn't invested in any of the characters, and was much too distracted by all of the errors to finish this one. So I guess I *almost* always finish a book.

The plot *could* show some promise, I suppose...but it would need a major rewrite.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unfortunately a disappointment January 22, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I rarely give one star but in this case, I must. This book has a pathetic heroine and a very nasty "hero". The plot is one which has been used many times, but can still be well executed without putting off the reader. Granted, romantic fiction is allowed to be fantasy, outlandish in some cases, stretching the bounds of possibility, but there must be some features which ring true. This one doesn't.

The hero's feat of becoming a billionaire from nothing in 10 years is unlikely, not to mention his two cousins becoming just as rich.

His ferocious behaviour to the heroine is a total turn-off and her acceptance of his advances immediately she sees him suspends belief in view of how badly he treats her.

The writing is naive. Repetitious words and phrasing, awkward sentences and so many "...said" makes this book a hard read. A good editor should have sorted this out before publication.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very badly done! January 9, 2012
By K. Lee
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book made me angry! I purchased it because the storyline seemed like it would be a fun read over a long weekend. The "hero" Derek was an out and out jerk. Supposedly his high school sweety injured his little feelings when she was 17 or 18 and he just could not get over it. He uses his "shark-like" business sense to destroy her father's company because they were rich and he was not. The only crimes I could determine that Mr. Freeman was guilty of were: 1) Underpaying his employees, 2) Not providing health insurance for his employees, 3) Not wanting his teenaged daughter to run off to get married, 4) Being upset because his teenage daughter got pregnant and lastly, 5) Being rich. None of these things are unethical.

If Mr. Freeman was the one to strip and sell companies ruining countless lives in the process that would have been a great motive for revenge and would have made sense. But no, that was Derek's job title and the revenge is because he got his feelings hurt "way back when" in high school and was not adult enough to get over it and move on. The story kept sliding down hill for me when he found out he was a father. I give it to him on wanting to be a dad and be apart of the child's life and all, but the youngster walks in on mom in bed with a stranger (at tender age of 10 years old) and is EXCITED because said stranger claims to be his long lost dad.

If Derek had taken 2 minutes to think 10 years ago about why Jasmine had hurt him he would have seen then what he had to figure out later.

I am well aware that fiction stories usually have some unbelievable storyline meant to transport you into a world of fantasy and fun but this was just bad. You could not get lost in the story because it seemed like a rush job.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unimpressed December 20, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Book starts out slow and tangled, with so many missed opportunities to add interesting twists and further develop the characters... Then, the final resolution to the "deep" issues comes so easy and fast it's laughable. Seems the writer realized she had enough pages for a "freebie" a rushed to wrap it up. The sex scenes are pretty much the same every time, and not all that hot.

To top it up, I had to resist the urge to take a red pen and make proofreading marks on my screen, and took more than a few deep breaths to get past the many typos and grammar mistakes, but when the writer called a couple of the main characters by the wrong name (Jessica instead of Jasmine, Trevor instead of Jacob, etc.), it was too much for me!

HELLO! Writing 101 is calling and saying you failed the course!
