Editorial Reviews

Review

The true genius of this story is that the problems are true to life.  This is a story that could happen to anyone.  It tugs at the heart-strings because it is unfailingly honest and brutal in its honesty.  You will laugh, cry, swear, yell, and still keep reading because the story will have you in its grip.

Husband-wife team Elyse Douglas has created a wonderful novel! I truly enjoyed this story. It swept me away instantly and kept me engrossed for the long haul. From start to finish, this story brought something new with each page turn. It's emotional, it's breath taking, and it's a story that will stay with you long after you've finished.

You never forget your first love ...

Alan and Rita were high school sweethearts, but after high school graduation they went their separate ways. Fifteen years later, Alan returns to his hometown in Pennsylvania, and seeks out the woman he has always loved and never forgot. Will Alan and Rita have a second chance at renewing their love, or will the past and some dark secrets once again separate them for good? Will Alan always be just Wanting Rita ... or will he succeed in regaining her love forever?

Wanting Rita is a profound love story that reads like a modern day Romeo and Juliet, it will pull at your heartstrings. Written in a hauntingly beautiful style, the story is told in the first person narrative by our protagonist, Dr. Alan Lincoln, and alternates between the past and present time. The reader will be captivated as they follow along with Alan and Rita's love story. Rich in details and vivid descriptions, the story takes the reader on an emotional roller coaster ride where they will feel the full gamut of emotions. Their story is haunting, it is tender, it is moving ... it is an honest and real look into the dimensions, changes, and struggles in life and relationships ... it is one that will move your heart and soul.

Rita and Alan are realistic down-to-earth people whose complexities are intriguing and who are easy for the readers to relate to. You can't help but embrace their story, they pull you into their lives, and you will feel their emotions as they struggle through life's changes, and learn to deal with their love and relationship. Be sure to have tissues handy, you're going to need it!

Wanting Rita is an amazing story about true love and second chances. This emotionally charged and moving story will pull at your heartstrings, and will resonate with you long after the last page has been read.

Very nicely written, kept my interest, great descriptions. I could vividly see everything that was being described. The words painted beautiful pictures so that the story could unwind and keep me engaged in the lives of the main characters. I couldn't help but "cheer" for the characters in their quest for peace and love. A satisfying and enjoyable read.

So well written, wonderful story, characters who ring true and whom you care about. This book has an epic feel to it. Hard to stop reading and do other things. A must read even for those who like fiction other than the romance genre. I can't believe this was a kindle free book. Many parts of the story are powerful in their illuminating profound truths of life, love, heartache, highs and lows, self esteem, self perception, small towns, social stratification, pain in teen years, disillusionment, faith, honesty, growth, suffering, death...the whole range of emotions we feel in a lifetime. Nothing about this book is disappointing.

Wanting Rita is second novel I've read by Elyse Douglas. It grabbed me from the first chapter and I could not put it down, could not, it is very moving. It just kept getting better and better. It has suspense (how will this love affair end?) and love. What could be better then that? I liked picturing where Alan James was in many of the NYC scenes, since I've been to those neighborhoods.
