    Good Addition to Series

    Madden is a standalone and you don't need to have read the other books to enjoy this one. Chris and Cecilia packed a lot of action, emotion, and twists and turns into this quick read. And as usual with their books, the sex is hot and steamy. The novella is short, yet they managed to richly describe the characters, scenery, and get you caught up in the emotions between the two main characters. I'm definitely going to want to read more of the stories in their A.W.E. series.

    One amazing book

    Hello dear readers. Let me start by saying that this book was given to me as an ARC by the authors for an honest review. Now, that being said I will go on with the review. The book is quite short. It’s still a novella. But even for the twelve chapters it’s…well I don’t know. But it wasn’t enough for me. Don’t get me wrong. It’s a great book. Finished and with an ending I love. But I want more. The main character is Lieutenant Jacob Madden. He is military and he is Amish. Yes, you heard me correctly. Amish. This is probably the first book I read that talks about the Amish society in any way. I do know of them but not in such a way. It was quite interesting approach and I love it. For those who don’t know the Amish society is a group of traditionalist Church fellowship. They are known for simple living, plain dress and reluctance to adopt many modern technologies. But that being said what shocked me was the way they disown a person if someone decides that their way is not his/her way; how they shun people away from the community. So I was pleasantly surprised to find out that the heroine, Abigail, is also Amish. But they both chose to leave and join the real world. Now life has thrown them together. Will they stray from each other or will they choose to unite as one? I’m not going to give you the answer. I guess you will have to read the novella and find out. Let me say just this. Madden is magically and well-crafted novella where you can feel every emotion seeping through the pages. It will break your heart in pieces and then put it back together. Chris Almeida and Cecilia Aubrey are great wizards and are very good at weaving stories, so intricate and detailed that you can mistake them for reality. This novella was given to me as an ARC from the authors. I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.

    Packs quite a punch in such a short story!

    MADDEN by Chris Almeida and Cecilia Aubrey is a captivating novella with a unique plot and charming characters. While it is short in length it packs quite the emotional punch. The inclusion of the Amish community was fascinating. I don't know much about their beliefs so this aspect of the book really captured my attention. As for the characters, I instantly fell in love with both Abigail and Jacob. They each have several layers to their personalities and I felt as if I had known them my whole life. I was pulled into their emotions from the very beginning. My heart broke for both Abigail and Jacob as I followed them along on their journey. In addition to the heartbreaking moments there are some sexy hot intimate scenes that will have your heart racing right along with Jacob and Abigail's. Given how innocent Abigail was, it was so sweet the way Jacob loved her. Almeida and Aubrey are so good at transporting the readers into the scenes with their writing where you physically feel the characters' emotions. If you are looking for a contemporary romance novella with fantastic characters, a heartbreaking plot, passionate intimacy and a joyful ending, give MADDEN a try. It has it all.

    This Amish boy is all grown up!

    Jacob Madden never returned to his family after Rumspringa. He chose to see the world with the Navy but in doing so he left his heart with Abigail. He knew she would never leave her family and he didn't want to make her choose between him and them. But when he gets a call that his mother is terminally ill, he returns to town. He never imagined he'd find Abi working in the local diner, having left her family after all! Abigail now regrets choosing her family over Jacob. Her fear of the unknown made her lose her heart and she has never settled for anyone else. When he runs into Jacob on his return she finds herself thrust amongst her old feelings for him and not sure what to do with them. He's made it clear that once he sees his family he's leaving again. Can her fragile heart take another beating? This is a totally different feel from others in this Love Bros series. It has a very gentle and slow burn romance, given the strict religion that Abi has only recently disconnected from. But that said when she decides on her future she goes all guns blazing! Jacob is pretty good at beating himself up over the guilt he has at leaving Abi behind and finding his adventure without her but I loved that no matter what has happened in the interim, they both realise that each is what the others heart beats for!
