Embracing Love is an intriguing story well written by Delisa Lynn. However, I found it very complicated.

The pace of events is very fast. Actually it is too fast. There were too many incidents happening in a short period of time. I may have liked it more if the book were over 300pages. But to me it was just too much.

The characters were not what I would like them to be. They never did what I thought they would/ should do. It was quite frustrating, to be honest. They have such great potential. I really do believe that if the book were longer, the characters would have the required space and time to grow and develop properly to the readers’ eyes.

Basically, I believe that the story was too complex to be written in just 170pages. It could be a full-length novel !It would be a really great one!

Delisa Lynn is a good writer and I do believe she has enormous potential to provide us with much greater books. She must definitely be in your Authors-Watch-List!


I love music! I have used some of these songs in Embracing Love. I have listened to all of them while writing, some of them over and over. I would open the playlist and get lost in the music while writing. Each song has lyrics that fit with the characters, and their story. There are a couple songs that mean more than others. When I say I had them on repeat, they were on repeat for hours! My husband is thankful for my ear buds.
