My lord, this is the best story i have been graced to read in my 27 years on this earth. You have such a way with words. You were able to make every character so REAL and relatable in your descriptions and storytelling. Everything about this story and how you executed it were perfect! Thank you for sharing this story with us. You have true talent.

Hello Joelle Jax,
I'm finally able to write a review for your story. Your story has touch me so deeply that I could not sleep at night. The relationship between Anthony and Natalia was breath taking and I felt like a peeping tom, while I read the ups and downs of this couple. It have been over two months since I had read this story and I'm ashamed because I did not leave a review for every chapter. You are amazing writer,their are few authors that are able to write such outstanding literature. Your writing is a thing of beauty. Thank you Bain
Thank you so much for this AMAZING review, Bain! Your kind words mean the world to me, especially at this complicated time in my writing life. And please don't feel bad about not reviewing every chapter. I truly appreciate you taking the time to share this one. Again, thank you, and be blessed.

I loved this story and the realistic imperfect characters. Your writing is just wonderful.
Some of my fave sections are with Rich and I absolutely cannot wait for his story.
Thanks for the wonderful reivew, Cocoverdad! So glad to hear you enjoyed the story.
Rich is one of those characters I never expected to love. I called myself taking a break from agnst before writing his story (which will be full of it), but with LGN I've come to realize I'm irrefutably drawn to the stuff. So I'll be headed back Rich's way soon. Thanks again!Reviewer: cocoverdad Signed [Report This]

I adore Rich for so many reasons and on so many levels. Oh, in my head CT Tamburello is Rich, there is no bigger lovable douchebag alive.
Lol. CT's a good choice. I always encourage readers to see the character as whomever they choose. In my head, Rich looks like Taylor "Too Delicious for Words" Kinney.Reviewer: GreenRoots Signed [Report This]

I'm ugly sobbing just want you to know. Bravo!! This was an emotional, superbly spun story that made me laugh, want to hurt someone (namely Barbara, Mercede, and Richard), and anticipate each new chapter unsure of how things would be resolved, but it was a wonderful journey. Ant and Natalia are proud parents, Rich Jr is on the road to getting his life back together and doting on his niece and nephew, and all toxic individuals have been flung out of their lives. The reunion with Ant and his uncle and eventually his father was simply beautiful. And that vicious, lying Mercede going so far as to forge a death certificate to keep a man away from his child, how cold-blooded and selifsh can you be? Ugh, but enough ranting, thank you SO much for sharing this story with us. Looking forward to what you have cooking in that magnificent brain of yours next!!
Lol @ the ugly sob. Aww... Thanks for this and all your wonderful, insightful reviews! I'm so happy to have had you along on this journey. Rich's story is next. Hope to see you there. Thanks Lapis Love!!!Reviewer: Lapis Love Signed [Report This]

This was my fav chap!!! Really touching, I had no choice but to celebrate with some (oh well, a river..) tears ! It could have been wonderful to read about David and his grandchildren's encounter. But this chap was a masterpiece on its own. Wonderful job girl !!!! (And Rich and his nephew/niece, just hilarious!!).
What a wonderful compliment! Thanks Peanut! I'll be sure to include some Grandpa David and grandbaby time in Rich's story just for you.Reviewer: Peanut Signed [Report This]

Tear Jerker!!! You hear me? Tear jerker!!! A great ending for a phenomenal story! I can't wait for Rich's story and a revisit of Natalia and Anthony! Loved it. Loved it. Loved it!
Thanks Brown Mocha!!! So happy you enjoyed it! More Rich, Nat, and Ant is in the works : )Reviewer: brown_mocha Signed [Report This]

Oh, my...the epilogue brought me to tears...what a fitting end to a marvelous tale. So glad Ant got to be reunited with his real father who had been made to give up all hope of his existence by his spiteful, evil "mother". Some people really do not deserve to be parents, and Mercede definitely falls into that category. Glad she is no longer allowed to be a part of Anthony's life or the lives of his immediate family.
Rich really deserves someone special to love and care for him; he has shown himself to be loyal, dependable and the real deal time and time again. Can't wait to read his story; I know you will fill us in on little tidbits from Ant and Natalia's lives during the telling of Rich's tale.
It would be awesome to have this story on my kindle, as it is far superior to any of the stories I currently have, but I do understand if you decide not to go the publishing route. I must say that I would buy your book in a instant if you did decide to publish; it's really that good.
Thank you for another thoroughly absorbing tale and I look forward to reading whatever your amazing mind conjures up next!
Thanks for the amazing review, Amiefuzzy! Publishing isn't a "definite never," just a "not in the near future." But thanks so much for the support. It is very much appreciated : )
I agree with you on both Mercede and Rich. She's a horror and he really is a gem. He will get his chance at the love and happiness he deserves. Questions is, is he ready for it?
Unc is all about his brother, Sis, and those babies, so you will definitely get a peek into their lives in his story.
Thanks again, Amiefuzzy!Reviewer: Amiefuzzy Signed [Report This]

OMG!!! i usually don't review..But damn! this was such a good story! i'm so sad that it's ending!!! But it was a wonderful ending and i legit cried!! You should do like a 5 years later or something just like one chapter in their lives 5 years after everything! and I want to see who the girl that Rich like is!.
A five year flash forward isn't off the table, but you'll definitely get a glimpse of Nat and Ant pre- and post-babies and have a chance to get to know Rich's lady love in his story.

I'm so happy Anthony got to meet his father. Now for his mother,I dislike this women more and more. Don't she know whats done in the night always comes to light, saying that Anthony drowned, that is someone with a dark heart. I'm glad she's not allowed around the twins. J.J. Thank you for your vision, your talent and your time.
