Review

"RETRACE was an amazingly beautiful Romance! About two broken & lost souls who finally find something - or someone - to live for again! I couldn't put it down! - Bianca, BJ's Book Blog

"Heartbreak. Mourning. Pain. Blame. Guilt. These are all of the emotions that I felt in just the prologue. If that was just the first few pages, I knew this book was going to be a roller coaster ride of emotions. I was not wrong." - Tatia, Amazon Reviewer

"Once again Ms. Ehrlich delivered the high caliber story that I have come to expect from her. She engaged the audience with a well-written tale which included a great plot and cast of characters" - Carmie, Amazon Reviewer

"I LOVED this story!! Retrace had a multitude of layers to its story line and characters." - Kawehi, Kawehi Book Blog

About the Author

By teen age, Sigal already lived in three different continents where she was lucky enough to experience and visit varied places, meet unique people, which only helped fuel her overly developed imagination. Currently, Sigal calls Estonia home where she lives with her husband and three kids. Not exactly sure where they will end up next…

2.5 - "Hey I'm the neighbor from upstairs, can I borrow some s*x? Stars.

This book is an absolute hoot, although I am pretty sure the author didn't intend it to be that way, I hope that the version that is released for purchase has been fully edited and spell checked, because to be quite frank I was laughing so hard at points I pretty much lost what was going on in the story....

As below -

~ Spamming Tissues - Pretty sure they were spasming, but hey what do I know.
~ Not long after we ordered in Italian and had it with a couple of wine glasses. - Were the wine glasses the starter, or maybe they work better as dessert!
~ "Scared the leaving s**t out of me." - Mmmm is that the living.
~ I wrap my arms around him and he buries his face above my bare chest, heaving heavily. - She must smell reallllly bad for that to happen.

And the gold medal winner -

~ A very distinctive bugle meets my middle, when a mighty eager Reeves lands between my legs.

Unfortunately, as I said the above did detract from the story a bit, but if I am honest I struggled to find much of a story to begin with. It started out really well, we are given a definitive prologue for both characters, and their first meeting is unforgettable to say the least.

Nia and Reeves are both battling demons, Reeves we find out about at the beginning of the book, Nia's more-so as their story progresses. I could empathise with Reeves somewhat, but the big reveal for Nia's past issues was a bit of a let-down, and I struggled to understand her whole reaction to it, and if I am honest I was expecting both of their pasts to actually tie up in some way.

*Gifted for an honest review* 3/12 - 4 stars
First time out with this author although I am aware of her work. An immensely enjoyable book told from both Nia and Reeve's POV, which I always like. I feel you get a greater understanding of what's going on with both characters. I liked Sigal's quirky kind of writing, I found it endearing at points although I did stop and wonder if perhaps English is not her native tongue, it seemed to come across at points although not in a terrible way. There are some fantastic lines in here, making you giggle quite a lot. At times I got the total warm and fuzzies, snorted with laughter at some of the insanely funny moments.
Both Nia and Reeves harbour secrets and Sigal cleverly leads you down a different path, allowing you to think one thing about Nia's, when in fact it is something different entirely. I found it quite clever if I'm being honest. For some reason these two are drawn to each other and develop a friendship with very obvious benefits. They soothe each other, calm each other so that an easy kind of relationship begins and flourishes. They are both messed up, broken and don't believe either deserve to be happy. There are some interesting sub characters here, one with the name Katie who throws all kinds of trouble and strife Reeves and Nias way. Sigal deals with difficult topics here. Love and loss, trust, heartbreak. There are some poignant "weepy" moments and while I ended this book with a tear in my eye it is not necassarily a weepy cry. There seems to be a good balance of humour to lift the reader through the story.
I enjoyed this very much. Would I read Sigal again? Most definitely yes, but this book seemed a little lacking something and I'm not sure what it was. It is a decent, all round book, easy to lose yourself in it for a couple of hours.

The blurb for this book really intrigued me and made me want to read it instantly.
Having a prologue in Nia and Reeves’ POV was a really good idea so you know what both went through and what their story is like. It started off really good but then it slowed down and was dragging a bit in my opinion. I don’t mind when we go more in depth of their story but some parts were too long.
Their first meeting was just brilliant. Their relationship soon turns into a friendship when they figure out they are neighbors. The friendship mentioned in the blurb is actually a friends with benefit type of relationship. I did not mind but it was too much at times. Will something happen between them or will it only be lust?
It started dragging again after their first time together. Which sucked because it was starting to get really interesting and get you back in the story but then it loses you again.
The sex scene started good but then it fell flat to me. It seemed very impersonal. The description was good but it lack that little bit that sucks you in (no pun intended).
Reeves was totally swoon worthy and I wouldn’t have imagined that in the beginning. He’s just the right amount of cocky but in a sexy way and turns into a sweet alpha man. Really loved that. Nia was a sweet young lady who went through a lot. She was a bit annoying at times and despite her being from Brazil you don’t get that unless she mentions it. Which is a shame cuz a lot could have been brought into the story.
I don’t know if I got an unedited copy but some bits and expressions used were weird, misused words as well.
Overall, it was a really good story but fell a bit short for me. I couldn’t connect with the characters fully. It took me a while to get into the story but once I did I really enjoyed it. The dual epilogue was nice too, such a nice way to wrap up the story.

Nia and Reeves are both battling demons, Reeves we find out about at the beginning of the book, Nia's more-so as their story progresses. I could empathise with Reeves somewhat, but the big reveal for Nia's past issues was a bit of a let-down, and I struggled to understand her whole reaction to it, and if I am honest I was expecting both of their pasts to actually tie up in some way. They pretty much spend the first 75% of the book, bouncing off each other like bunnies but vehemently denying they are a couple, to then come to the conclusion that actually they are a couple. There is a little added drama with Katie, Reeve's best friends little sister, but it didn't really bring any value to the book on the whole to be honest, and the last 15% where both characters deal with their pasts all seemed to just fizzle out. I did love the Dual epilogue though, it gave their story a pretty decent closure.

There's something about Reeve's that put's me at ease, that just makes me want to, well, be next to him.

Typos aside, the writing is good, I would read other books from this author without hesitation, I was just expecting more to be honest. I have heard good things about Sigal Ehrlich but Retrace was lacking in any real depth of story-line for me to give it more than the rating I have.

HASH(0x90fb5240) out of 5 stars A lot of promise, but this one wasn't what I was hoping for. It felt a bit forced and I couldn't connect with the characters. 24 Nov. 2014

Review for Ramblings From This Chick. ramblingsfromthischick.blogspot.com

I honestly couldn't wait to read Retrace by Sigal Ehrlich when I first saw the cover and read the blurb. I thought that this one sounded so good and I was really glad that it was a standalone novel. There have been so many serials and books in series lately, that I was really just looking forward to a good and complete book. However as much promise as this book had, I found myself having several issues with it and it wasn't what I had been hoping for.

Nia Martins and Reeves Mitchell have both been struggling to deal with their pain and guilt. They each lost someone three years ago, and have been unable to move forward. They first meet when they wind up in the same hotel room after a mistake. But soon they are running into each other in their new apartment building, as well as the bar where Reeves works and Nia's new friends often go. As much as they are drawn to one another, things between them are complicated and they find themselves trying to fight what is between them. But when they are no longer able to fight it, they find themselves connecting with each other in a way they have never been able to do before. But as their new friendship with benefits starts to take over their lives, they soon begin to worry about how it is affecting each of them. Nia can't lose someone else and is afraid that losing Reeves will wreck her, while Reeves questions why his feelings for Nia seem to consume all his thoughts. Can Nia and Reeves figure out a way to move forward and let go of the past together?

I liked Reeves and Nia for the most part, but I found them hard to connect with. Reeves was sweet and caring, but he was also completely blind when it came to some things. His actions towards hist best friend's sister Katie beyond frustrated me, and I hated that he allowed her to get away with so much. He tended to focus on her more than he ever did Nia and it really irritated me. Especially because one minute he was so great and tender with Nia, and the next he was cold and unfeeling towards her. I hated that he didn't treat her better and that he often didn't even give her an explanation or reason. Nia was sweet and kind and I loved her as a dance teacher. She was great with kids and also with Reeves. But she also would drop things far too easily and I didn't understand why she put up with everything that she did. She would get mad, but he would sweet talk her and she instantly forgave him with little to no consequences. It just came off as weak and I didn't care for it. I also didn't like that it was brought up a lot that she was from Brazil, and yet she didn't seem to have any of the characteristics that go along with that. It felt forced and as though the author had to constantly remind the reader of that, because otherwise it was easily forgotten. I did think that Reeves and Nia had a lot of chemistry and they definitely could generate some steam. But there was just something missing from these two for me.

Overall, I thought that this was a story that could have been great but unfortunately got lost in the details. It felt forced at times, and I was never able to really connect with the characters or story. I felt as though Katie was far too much drama, and I really hated her. I don't think that she ever was able to redeem herself, and she just came off as a selfish and immature little girl. I wanted to see her experience some growth or understanding after everything, but it was clear that she only thought of herself. Reeves and Nia had really poor communication, and I thought that they seemed to just be going around in circles for most of the story. They were both having strong feelings for one another and jealous of others, and yet they couldn't even tell each other that they liked one another. It got old, and after awhile I started to lose interest. I think that Sigal did a good job of introducing more characters in this story that she could easily expand upon for future books though, and I am curious about Reeves' friend Jake. His relationship and situation were confusing but interesting, and I have to say I am intrigued enough to want to read more about it. I would read more from Sigal Ehrlich in the future despite my issues though, and I am curious to see what she does next.

HASH(0x91062288) out of 5 stars ..amazingly beautiful Romance! About two broken souls who finally find something/someone to live for again! 6 Nov. 2014
By BJs Book Blog - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
The book is told in both Nia's and Reeves' POV.

We start three years ago where Nia and Reeve had to go through something horrible - they both lost someone very close to them.

And now three years later they're both in Cleveland trying to live their lives.

Nia was just hired as a dance teacher for little girls and Reeve is working at Jake's bar - as a bouncer, but not really - Jake hires him out as some kind of security expert/bodyguard to rich people, or rather rich criminals.

When they both move into their new apartments they meet for the first time.

Well, not really - they already met shortly before - under very funny and naked circumstances ☺☺☺

They're instantly attracted to each other.

For Nia, Reeves is literally her dream-guy: G.I. JOE ☺

And Reeves is totally mesmerized by this beautiful dancer.

But of course, with both their pasts still very present in their mind, they're not looking for something serious. And then there's still the problem of Katie - a girl Reeves took on as his little sister, because her real brother isn't alive anymore. But Katie doesn't see Reeves as a big brother!

What will happen to Nia and Reeves?
Will they be able to leave their pasts behind to find their HEA with each other?
Will everybody die at the end?
Will there be a horrible Cliffhanger?

Nope - I'm not telling you ☺

Ok - I can tell you that there won't be a Cliffhanger!! It's a stand-alone Romance!!!
____________________________

I REALLY LOoOVED THE BOOK!

I love a good, sexy romance...and this one was just perfect.

Lots of sexy gorgeousness in the form of Reeves...

There were some scenes that made me cry!!! ☺

...lots of romantic and sexy moments!!

The book was really full of emotions - full of guilt and blame and past problems that had to be overcome in order for our two darlings to finally find their 'Happy'!

The cover and Reeves' background kind of led me to believe this book was going to be a bit more suspensy... there's not really anything suspensy about it - only talk about and memories of suspense.

It didn't bother me, but it's just that the cover made me believe I was about to read a Romantic Suspense thingy ☺

BUT I LOVED EVERY SECOND OF THIS BOOK!!!!

I was up until 3am finishing it!!!!

RETRACE was an amazingly beautiful Romance!
About two broken & lost souls who finally find something - or someone - to live for again!
I couldn't put it down!

And now Sigal - hurry with your next book - I can't wait to see what the next one will be about!!!
HASH(0x90fb548c) out of 5 stars A pull at your heartstrings, sweet and sexy story 24 April 2015
By Dal M - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
A pull at your heartstrings, sweet and sexy story of two people that find acceptance and love through their sultry friendship.

Looking to escape her family and a tragic past that haunts her, Nia Mitchell moves from Brazil to the US to be a dance teacher.

Reeves Mitchell left the FBI after he lost his partner and best friend in an undercover operation. Full of self-loathing, anger and guilt, he wants revenge but spends most of his time bartending or working as a bodyguard.
“Hey. I’m the neighbor from upstairs, can I borrow some sex?”

In a nakedly funny twist of fate Reeves and Nia meet and keep bumping into each other. Their attraction is instant, but their hearts and minds will only allow friendship. Until their similar heartbreaking past facilitates an explosively hot friends with benefits relationship. Because anything more would mean putting their hearts on the emotional line.
“Her eyes are indeed strikingly beautiful, but they seem to be in some perpetual mourning, even when she smiles. Ironically so, just like mine.”

Even though they have formed a deep connection in which they silently share their pain, and find solace and escape in each other, they still hold off very much of themselves back.
“My thoughts wander to how peaceful she makes me feel. Her company is so easy, I don’t have to fight anything away while with her.”

But from sunrise to nightfall, they can’t stop thinking about each other and being in each other’s orbits. The push and pull between them is at times frustrating by their lack of full disclosure but mostly it was full of sweet, tender friendship and scorching moments.
“I think I’ve just fallen deeper in friendship with you.”
“You’ve been in friendship with me?”
“Hopelessly…”

Their road towards healing and acceptance took time and had some roadblocks, mostly of their own making and some provoked by others. But the big, positive impact they had on one another was beautiful because they found in each other something they weren't looking for but discovered they very much wanted and needed.
“Our scars and wounds are a great part of who we are. And who you are is so amazingly beautiful... Without the baggage you bring with you, you wouldn’t have been the you I’m totally crazy about.”

From the very start, the double prologues made my heart squeeze with pain for both these tortured souls. Reeves is drowning in guilt and we know Nia has lost a loved one, which pointed at a probable somber plot. But the insta-lust is almost immediately followed buy an insta-kinship which was easy and fun.
"We need a happy date. A date that won't erase the past, but let us remember it with acceptance… A date that will make my happy beat my sad."

From their smutty scrabble games, to the crying jags to their dazzling and swoony romance, Sigal Ehrlich gives us a very enjoyable story with a steady pace in which my feelings for this couple grew and deepened just as much as theirs.

I really liked the Layer’s series and after reading Retrace, Sigal Ehrlich has cemented a top place on my reading radar.

Retrace is a standalone, contemporary romance novel. Told from both points of view with a happy ending.

HASH(0x90fb56cc) out of 5 stars ABSOLUTELY AMAZING - a must read 5 Jan. 2015
By ktu35114 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Retrace was my first experience reading a novel by Sigal Ehrlich and Ohhhh Myyyyy Goooodness what a fabulously written and amazingly structured read. I now have another favourite author to add to my growing list. Retrace was intriguing, mysterious and had me crying with compassion for Nia and Reeves.

Nia Mitchell is a twenty three year old that has endured a harrowing past already for someone so young. She moved across the globe to escape her painful memories and to make something for herself in a new country. A fresh start and a new beginning.

Reeves Mitchell is biding his time, taking each day as it comes until revenge can be handed out for the life of his friend. Every day and night Reeves cannot forget that fateful day and it will be forever etched into his heart. His best friend, Ben meant the world to him and now, Reeves has placed a wall so thick and strong around his heart that nobody will be able to penetrate it.

Reeves works at Jakes, a bar in between his real job; Jake is a mate but also organises his assignments. Reeves is known as a playboy and uses the woman to release his frustration. He’s currently living in a hotel room, waiting for his apartment to be finished in a couple of days.

Nia feels free when she dances, it’s the only thing that lets her forget the trauma of her past. Now in America she has the chance to live her dream, she has acquired a job teaching young girls to dance.

Returning to her room, Nia is exhausted and ready to hit the shower and unwind. Opening the door to exit the bathroom, Nia runs into Reeves. Reeves is stunned when a beautiful naked body is standing in front of him as he was heading to take a shower. Nia starts screaming at him and he just stares, unable to look away from the exquisiteness. Obviously there has been some sort of mix up in their rooms.

After her first lesson, Nia has made friends and they all head to Jakes for a drink. Funnily enough Reeves is on the door, after he stamps her wrist she calls him G.I. Joe, smiles and heads inside.

A couple of days later fate has a funny way of dealing out hands, Nia has moved into her new apartment and hears banging and crashing from the apartment above. Thinking somebody may be in trouble, she heads up to help. When the door opens, Nia is surprised to see her G.I. Joe standing in front of her.

That was the beginning of their friendship and continued on to have benefits. All the while their secrets stayed hidden and their feelings escalated. Nia finds Reeves fights her nightmares away and for Reeves she just makes him feel complete.

Who is Reeves really and what does he do? What happened to Ben? Who is Katie to Reeves? What happened three years ago to Nia? Who is Patrick and why will she never love anyone more than she loved him? Will Nia trust Reeves enough to tell him her story?

Retrace is an emotional rollercoaster. Reeves could be so sweet and caring and then cold and distant the next second. Nia is a broken mess and struggles to move on. This one has something for everyone from drama to intrigue, romance to hot need and mystery to action. The writing style was fantastic as were the characters and this is a must read.
