      I used to read my mother's Harlequin Romance novels. The naughty ones with the red cover. They taught me a lot about reality and fantasy. I didn't fall in love with any of the characters, and none of them fell in love with me. It just never happened. I was 12. I was too demanding, even then. I wanted more. More reality. More fantasy. Maybe I am still waiting for THE ONE. That ONE book to find me and sweep me off my feet. To carry me away, to fall madly and deeply in love with me, and shelter me [...]

      I have said it before, and I'll say it again: GAIL WINFREE CAN WRITE. His writing style is superb, and his prose reads like poetry. Not only that, his creativity and imagination goes way beyond of what one expects from a writer. Yet how do I rate this book? From the literary quality, I would give this books 5 stars, no 7, maybe 10. I am not sure. This book really has me confused. However, HOWEVER this book is soooooooo erotic! Here I am sitting at my computer, blushing red like a tomato, only [...]

      I planned to write a review of this book in form of a meta-review, explaining how hard it is, for me, to write a review of this book. But that turned out to be too difficult either, so I talked to a close friend of mine, and asked him what he made of this book.Here's the minutes of our conversation as far as I can recall from memory.Me: So, what you think about the reality of being lovers?Matt: You mean being lovers in the real world, or the book by Gail L. Winfree?Me: The book.Matt: Which one d [...]

      After reading reviews of this book, I was terribly excited about reading it. Simply stated, it didn't live up to my hopes or the reviews. I found the characters very flat and underdeveloped. The concept was totally intriguing, but it was not fully realized. There was unnecessary weirdness and giant requests for suspension of disbelief because nothing was worked out well enough to be thoughtfully believed. I was unimpressed by the writing and had to force myself to finish reading it. I really wan [...]

      Bitter disappointment. Someone recommended this to me somewhere on the internet, and when Kindle Unlimited opened it up to me for free I eagerly tried it. I'm not a writer, but I'm positive I could write a better story than this one. I've seen better erotic stories (plot, characterization, and description included) involving literature on a free site like Literotica. I can only assume the positive reviews on this book come from people who haven't actually spent time reading anything more than Ha [...]

      I was lucky to win this book signed by Mr. Winfree on as a give away. I have never read his work and must say I was very intreged by his style. Erotic Love Story! Any woman any age can and will relate to Miriam and her erotic dreams or was she dreaming. I enjoyed the read as it was very well written and captured me from page one just like. Miriam and held my attention to finish the book in one day (Sunday). Thank you Mr Winfree and !

      An intriguing and enjoyable book.I like the idea of fictional characters coming to life. The erotic passages are believable and well written, and support the narrative. I want to read more of Gail's work on the strength of this book.

      The concept is interesting; a male character falls in love with the reader. The reader, Miriam is a book worm with a hot body. Her figure is important for as the story progresses her work-mates are used to seeing her dressed all prim and proper with her hair in a bun. Typical librarian attire. Her demeanor changes and she starts pulling out sexy little outfits she use to wear, daisy dukes, cheerleader outfit, see through blouse and literally, let’s her hair down. This should have led to some e [...]

      I normally do not like romance books and refuse to even read any of the "50 shades of grey" series, simply because I have lived an extraordinary life myself. However, I liked Gail Winfree's previous books so much, I of course, wanted to read this one too. As with his last book, Finding What's Lost, I could not put it down and finished it in a day. It was extremely erotic and I am embarrassed to say that Miriam, in a sense,reminds me of myself in the last few years, so I could certainly relate. I [...]
