    One thought on “Natural Love”

    1. 3 stars!I know the rating doesn’t really show it, but I did enjoy this book up until the point I didn’t. The writing was solid and as a lover of taboo and forbidden romances, I was happy with a surprise reveal in the beginning that added yet another complex layer to the story. However, the excellent premise was overshadowed by some issues that gradually dominated the story and by the end of the book I was so disappointed when I read how everything was wrapped up. But taking the book as a who [...]

    2. ☆Complimentary copy provided by the author in exchange for an honest review☆TITLE: Natural Love AUTHOR: Sara Celi GENRE: Contemporary RomanceRELEASE DATE: December 9th 2014MY RATING: ★★★★Starting this and even an hour in the story it felt like I was missing something like there was a previous book to this one, story line wasn't matching up to the dots but then bit by bit the author revealed titbits as I carried on readingHow could something so natural feel so wrong!!Everyone knows yo [...]

    3. After seeing a lot of recommendations from other authors for this one we were really looking forward to reading it but sadly, it didn't work for us. The male pov felt off and it didn't grab us. No rating as we didn't finish.

    4. Dnf'ed at 88%This was such a struggle to get to 88%. I kept hoping there would be some saving grace. Hoped against hope! I love step sibling romances with a passion, but this one missed the mark.

    5. DNF @ 52%Boy, was I wrong about this one. Poor writing, all tell and no show, zero chemistry. Couldn't finish it.

    6. Yeahhhhhh. I'm still not sure about this one.This could've been really good with the scandelous, taboo love affair between stepsiblings but it lacked depth.I got kind of bored of reading about the H and his internal battles of wanting his stepsister and wanting his role at his father's company.The conversations didn't flow right and I expected more a BOOM rather than was was provided in the end.The climax of the story was delivered then just kind of disappeared into thin air.There was ton of pot [...]

    7. Λοιπόν πραγματικά δυσκολεύομαι να μιλήσω για αυτό το βιβλίο γιατί ήταν… περίεργο. Ναι περίεργο. Πώς να το εξηγήσω καλύτερα; Δεν το κατάλαβα ας πούμε. Το Natural love ήταν το πρώτο μου βιβλίο της θεματολογίας stepbrother/stepsister. Δεν ξέρω τι περίμενα και επίσης δεν νομίζω το συγκεκριμένο [...]

    8. The sexual frustration made this book so much better. I did like the first half more than the second. It's not something I've never read before but it was still enjoyable. I'm actually surprised at the low general rating. WTH? It was not that bad! Come on! I usually hate NA romances rated over 4.3 while everyone else salivate themselves. Maybe the prudes rated it low because of the step siblings sexy times? I think them being 'related' made it even hotter. haha

    9. Sara did an amazing job with this novel!What if the one person you loved was the one you couldn't have? Would you be able to control yourself, to let the lust and need go, or would you fall from grace?

    10. Natural Love was an amazing quick read. The plot is a little um taboo but it will suck you in and have you rooting for the characters. The author did a great job of making you feel like part of the story and making the book hard to put down. Great 5 star read!

    11. After seeing a lot of recommendations from other authors for this one we were really looking forward to reading it but sadly, it didn't work for us. The male pov felt off and it didn't grab us. No rating as we didn't finish.

    12. Before I tell you how much I LOVED this book, I need to tell you that 1) I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review and 2) the book is dedicated to me. But before you think I am biased based on the book dedication, go back and read the dedication! When Sara told me about the rather taboo subject matter of this book, I seriously told her not to write this book because it reminded me of an after-school special I remember watching in the 1980s. Having admitted that, I'm so glad she didn't l [...]

    13. *This review may contain spoilers*I was given an ARC for an honest review"After a while, I lay there in the darkness and stared at the ceiling. Sleep wouldn't come either. She wouldn't help me. It teased me, just like the thoughts about Avery did, and I was sick of the game. I needed some relief, something to stop the pain. Something to stem the obsession. Something to make me forget. Or something to make me remember. Maybe just something. Not just something. Someone. Her. I needed her [...]

    14. **arc received from author and LBTS for an honest review, from the lushes at twounrulygirls ** All donefull review and rating after I think on it

    15. If you tell me a book has a forbidden love story contained in its pages, I will be on it like white on rice. Add in an intriguing blurb and I will count the days until release. Throw in a pretty cover and I'm all in.  That was the case for this book. It had all of those things. Unfortunately, this book missed the mark for me. I felt nothing for the characters and, to be honest, a little bored by the plot.Spencer Chadwick hasn't been back in his hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio for two years. After [...]

    16. 2 STARSI'm very sad to say but this book didn't work for me at all. I struggled to finish it and I did it just because I wanted to know how it was going to end but not even the fact that it ended in a somehow "happy note" appeased my overall disappointment. :(The big problem for me was that this story didn't make me feel anything from the characters. This was supposed to be a story about a forbidden love between a stepbrother and a stepsister and from my experience, forbidden romances should hav [...]

    17. 3.5 StarsReview by Jen HagenOne of my favorite genre of books is the taboo love story. In this book we have an illicit affair between Spencer and Avery whom are step siblings. The story is told solely through Spencer’s words.Spencer is 24 years old and has just returned from a 2-year stint in the Peace Corps, of which his father used his money, power, and resources to enable Spencer a spot. This was done as a means to curb Spencer’s unruly behavior which stemmed from alcohol indulgence. Spen [...]

    18. Review done for literarygossip I’m not sure how I feel about Natural Love. At times I was really engaged in the story and couldn’t wait to turn the next page, and at others I found myself getting distracted and losing focus on the story. The subject matter is definitely taboo, and made me wonder how much this actually happens in real life. I didn’t find myself connected to the characters individually, or as a couple, as much as I would have liked. Instead of being shown how they grew close [...]

    19. Everyone in the Chadwick house is supposed to be perfect. This has been repeatedly drilled into Spencer's head since he was a child. Years of pressure and secrets are starting to become unbearable and Spencer's struggles to figure out how to move forward when mistakes aren't allowed, and what he wants most in the world, he absolutely can't have. There is definitely some mild taboo action going on here between Spencer and Avery who are step-siblings. They have grown up together, which adds a bit [...]

    21. DNF at 70%. I tried y'all, really I did. This was such a let down. I rarely, rarely don't finish a book but this was so repetitive and lackluster.

    22. It was a good story but from the wrong point of view, in my opinion. If we could "hear" or read Avery story, if you like, and not Spencer's, it would be more interesting, again, in my opinion! :-)

    23. 3.5 StarsAfter being shipped off to two years in the Peace Corp in South Africa, Spencer Chadwick, 24, returns to his family home in Ohio poised to take his position in the family business. The Chadwicks are rich and his father is more focused on appearances and the integrity of the Chadwick name to the point that most of the family members, in an attempt to avoid blemishing the family image, are suppressing their own demons and running away from the things that haunt them. This includes Spencer [...]

    24. I am a huge fan of Sara Celi and was super excited to learn of her new book. Of course this is another fantastic new adult romance with something a little different in the forbidden love theme. As is the norm for Ms Celi’s books, Natural Love was fabulously written and I again loved the book written from a male point of view. With surprises along the way, this was unpredictable and the forbidden love aspect was appealing.Spencer Chadwick is a twenty-four year old that was exiled for two years [...]
