I read a lot of romance novels but rarely write reviews, however I felt inclined to write one for this book as it is so well written I loved the story and it kept me enthralled right to the end I also really liked the characters who were complex and interesting I read this book after reading the Trust trilogy which is also excellent and I was pleasantly surprised to find Love Painted in Red just as good as those books I would definitely recommend this book if you enjoy romance with some suspense [...]
Amazing book I loved it
This was not for me I liked the blurb, but the purple prose and the almost fan fic style made me cringe when I was not laughing at some of the phrases This is SO overdone, so ridiculously overblown and over described and so full of trying to be dramatic moments that I got to the stage where I couldn t see how it could possibly get any intense His skin was an exquisite shade of the lightest coppery gold His mane was made of the darkest midnight black silky locks, which shimmered under the soft s [...]
It s been a while since I ve picked up a book and been compelled to forgo going out the whole Sunday and stay up half the night to finish it And make that the first Sunday of the year, now you know how good is Love Painted in Red But Ms Serruya s books never fail to keep me awake for hours.It sucked me in from the firsts pages and Tavish and Laetitia didn t let me go until the last word Very well written, with believable and original characters, original plot, with twists and turns galore, Love [...]
I ve been lucky enough to follow Ms.Serruya s stories right from the very beginning, after I was a winner in a giveaway of her first Trust novel Now in the beginning I was very sceptical as to whether I would like the book, being as, at the time, it wasn t really my genre Well, what a surprise that turned out to be I not only loved the first book, but loved the rest of the books in the series, and went on to read several other books with various themes in the genre Wow, what an eye opener that t [...]

What can I say Another stupendous romance from Cristiane Serruya It has it all a well written, beautiful story with original plot, great character development, hot sex scenes, and that touch of suspense and action so peculiar to Ms Serruya, that especially at the end, made LPinR a page flipping exciting book I loved Laetitia s story And I became a huge fan of Tavish Uilleam, too what a hunk He might have taken Alistair Connor s and Ethan s places in my heart I was also very, very impressed with [...]
I received a free copy through Kindle scout.I really loved the trust trilogy so when there was a new book from Cristiane Serruya I had to read it Love Painted in Red doesn t disappoint and I ended up divouring it I especially love how the tension is being build up during the story end ended in one big explosion, really, my heart is still beating to fast And then the main characters, I just love them I think the best part about them is that they could be real they are not flawless but have scars [...]
First off, I have to say what an eye catching and fantastic cover this book has The writing in this novel is just as red hot and steamy as the cover implies Tavish and Laetitia are two tortured souls, who have both suffered unspeakable tragedies Will they find the strength to move beyond their troubled pasts and find healing solace in each other s arms Grab a copy of this Kindle Scout winner to read their twisty tale.
I thought it would never endI wanted to stop reading this at 12%, but powered through I wish I hadn t This was a chore to read It was disjointed, lacked character development, and never really explained several key aspects of the story.I cannot understand any 5 star reviews being given to this dreck.
I had received this book through Kindle scout, and the author was suggested by a friend I ve mixed feeling about the book, though the plot had quite potential, the suspense well handled, I was disappointed with the extra dose of eroticism the lack of justice to the climax puzzles solved in the last few pages It left me high and dry I am a huge fan of Nora Roberts, and I thought the plot had all the ingredients to be a la Roberts But, I think the book could have done away with a few chapters and [...]
This story was hard to get into Details were missing and there really wasn t anything to the plot The story line was slow and I found myself skimming through some pages It s unusual for me to struggle through a book and not finish it The characters seem one dimensional They aren t easily relatable I can t connect with them The chemistry between them has left me cold Hopefully, I ll come back through and finish the book.I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book
Received this book for free for my honest review.Pass on this book It was so slow and boring and went over and over and over how there were feelings between the 2 main characters I did skim most of the book and the last 25 pages or so tied things together but it still wasn t worth reading.
I enjoyed this story and characters, everything was interesting and well written I can recommend it.But what I didn t like disjointed plot too sudden changes of POV s too ideal characters in some parts.
It was a suspenseful romance and I was thrilled The characters were really attractive and the plot was great.But I feel bad for the author Since I got a digital copy, I couldn t read it for a long time at once My eyes got tired easily and I read only a few pages a day, so it took ages to finish it It means I couldn t concentrate on the story very much I wish I had a physical copy If I get a paperback in the near future, I ll read this again and write a better review
The romance part of this book fits the typical things you ll find in many romance books beautiful people, steamy sex which I skip over , and lovers with issues There was nothing in that aspect that made the book stand out What makes it a good read is the backstories of the two main characters I would have enjoyed reading those stories in full PTSD from the war in Afghanistan haunts Tavish, while living a childhood among a cult keeps Laetitia away from society Of course, romance lovers will enjoy [...]
When I read the blurb for Love Painted in Red on Kindle Scout I really liked it so I nominated it I was so happy when it got published and I got a copy However, while the blurb was accurate, the way the story was presented was confusing for me I liked the idea of Tavish MacCraig being a doctor and in the military though being a POW for 6 months would have been unbearable The mystery of Laetitia s terrible past was intriguing especially when she later seemed to be almost hiding as well as a very [...]
Steamy romance, revenge, war, true love this book has it all If you want to read a story that satisfies all your appetites, look no further than Love Painted in Red When two characters who are polar opposites are thrust into each other s lives, the romance that ensues is complex and beautiful Laetitia has been traumatized by her childhood, and Tavish was broken while at war, so when they fall for each other they must struggle to keep their past lives hidden.I don t want to give away too much of [...]
Another winning novel by Cristiane SerruyaThe character Tavish from The Trust Series is further developed in this book I absolutely love Tavish He has many demons from his time in the military which makes him human and relatable I could easily picture a sexy gentle giant with a soft touch Laetitia is the lucky girl he falls in love with Laetitia also has demons she deals with and together they come together to help one another heal I enjoyed the love story along with some spicy love scenes.
Very disappointed especially after my love for the Trust series Tavish s character was great, but my likes start and end with him The elfin ear heroine and her storyline was not what I anticipated or liked I had a difficult time getting through the book, where some parts were longer than needed and other were rushed much like the ending I am not giving up on this talented author, to each their own and this one was just not for me.
