5.0 out of 5 stars A Mistake worth making
Youthful heartaches often scar the deepest and that is the case for Lily. Unemployed and sexless for over a year, Lily is coaxed into working as a personal assistant for her first(and as much as she denies it her only) love by both his and her own mother.

Determined not to rehash old memories Lily makes it very clear that work is all she has on her mind...but...

3.0 out of 5 stars FAB STORY - RUINED BY SPELLING/GRAMMAR
I have read all of Pamela Ann's books - I love her characters and storylines but I have to be totally honest and say that she DESPERATELY needs a different editor. I initially assumed that the books hadn't been professionally edited until I saw an accreditation. This made me laugh rather loudly as the spelling, grammar, syntax in all her books is nothing short of...

3.0 out of 5 stars FAB STORY - RUINED BY SPELLING/GRAMMAR, 27 Mar 2013

I have read all of Pamela Ann's books - I love her characters and storylines but I have to be totally honest and say that she DESPERATELY needs a different editor. I initially assumed that the books hadn't been professionally edited until I saw an accreditation. This made me laugh rather loudly as the spelling, grammar, syntax in all her books is nothing short of atrocious. There is a really bad habit of sentences just stopping in mid air, words are missed out and, in fact, some words are just plain wrong in terms of their actual meaning or within the context of the sentence.

These errors do a huge disserve to the author's obvious imagination and potential talent as a writer.

Please, please, Ms Ann - a bit of decent proof reading and editing could make a HUGE difference to your future success.

2.0 out of 5 stars Editor needed!!, 21 Mar 2013
This review is from: Lily's Mistake (Kindle Edition)
I enjoyed this book for all the wrong reasons, the text is full of hyperbole, malapropisms and crazy metaphorical language! I started highlighting some examples but stopped once I realised I'd pretty much have to mark 50% of the story! Two of my favourite 'huh?' lines are...
"You look so wild & abandoned. I could nut just watching you like that"
"I weave myself nicely on a nice s*** pile, don't I?"
There were other pointless narrative theatrics such as Drake questioning the baby's paternity, this did not add anything to the story and was not a believable reaction considering he knew her sexual history!
But in spite of the dubious writing I like reading stories by new writers and think this one could have been good with the help of an experienced editor, in fact the story improved a lot in the last few chapters when the absurd overblown sex stopped and the story focused on real emotions! So if you are feeling generous give Lily's Mistake a go....

2.0 out of 5 stars Dreadful, 2 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lily's Mistake (Kindle Edition)
Everything was fine until the first sex scene - it was awful. It totally lacked any sensuality; read like very bad porn; was a complete turn off. Considering this was a young woman losing her virginity to a man she loved, who secretly professed to love her, it was a disaster in terms of writing & the story.
Find a top quality editor; spelling, grammar, absurd descriptions... Such a shame.

1.0 out of 5 stars terrible terrible terrible, 2 April 2013

This review is from: Lily's Mistake (Kindle Edition)
So so awful. The hero of the tale is actually vile, aggressive and his behaviour borderlines on domestic abuse. I really wouldn't bother with this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Mistake worth making, 9 Mar 2013

This review is from: Lily's Mistake (Kindle Edition)
Youthful heartaches often scar the deepest and that is the case for Lily. Unemployed and sexless for over a year, Lily is coaxed into working as a personal assistant for her first(and as much as she denies it her only) love by both his and her own mother.

Determined not to rehash old memories Lily makes it very clear that work is all she has on her mind...but that soon changes...in a big way.

Facing many obstacles; the ever charming Drake, his Psycho ex, breaking hearts of prospective beaus and a couple of other heartbreaking moments...can Lily open her heart to true love? or is it too late?

Look out for a tie in to Ms Ann's previous book..a tumultuous story that you will want to read beginning to end non stop...warning tissues required! A story that won't disappoint!
