Praise and Reviews

What would you sacrifice for love?

Tara Robstead is prepared to sacrifice everything to find her true love and her happily ever after. But her journey leads her into the arms of a mad man. Now, strapped to a hospital bed, Tara is in a trauma induced coma. She struggles to save herself from the damages inflicted by a man—the same man she once thought she could love, unaware that her desires will lead her to what is waiting on the other side. However, this is only the tip of the ice berg. As the story unfolds, we see what transpires to lead Tara into her unfortunate situation.

While Tara battles for her life, Josh Henderson has his own demons to deal with. After casting Tara aside for promises of a better career, his life spirals out of control. Only through the agonizing declaration of mistakes made, and need for forgiveness from his family, does Josh realize how important Tara really is. But to have her, he must sacrifice what he thinks is his dream.

Positive Comments from Judges:

I like the way you describe things so vividly. It really breathes life into your characters.

I thought the dialogue done very well!

The plot is a fresh one.

I really enjoyed your descriptions. They were vivid and I could clearly see how deflated Josh was.

Love your descriptions. I could feel what they felt. Very good at showing!

You have a great voice, and an exciting story to tell.

Excellent use of secondary characters in the second half. I love the hospital setting, the thoughts, the reactions and Dr. Frances. Great job there.

This is honestly not a plot I’ve seen before, so I think if you do some work you could have an excellent story. I LOVE the hospital part. I’m afraid I didn’t leave as many comments there, but only because I was so engaged that I stopped being a judge and instead acted as a reader. I didn’t want that part to end. So. If you rework your beginning, and keep the second part just as strong, I could see you re-entering this into other contests and winning hands down.

Excellent POV. For the most part.

THE PHYSICAL DESCRIPTIONS OF THE COUPLE ARE BEAUTIFUL.

I WAS SWEATING WITH THEM.  IT WAS GREAT THE WAY YOU TOUCHED THEM.

THE WRITING IS VERY VIBRANT & EVOCATIVE.  I’D LOVE TO READ THE REST OF THE STORY TO SEE WHAT HAPPENS AND HOW.

THIS IS A VERY INTERESTING READ.  IT REALLY SWITCHES FROM ONE EXTREME TO THE OTHER.

I TELL YOU, YOU’VE GOT A REALLY GOOD BOOK HERE.  THERE IS ONE OTHER THING, SO MANY PEOPLE WITH MENTAL DISEASE.  I QUESTION IT, BUT IT’S STILL A GOOD SOUNDING BOOK AND I WISH YOU THE BEST OF LUCK WITH IT .
