Sarah Broadhurst's view...

What an apt title for this terrifically readable book on domestic violence. What horror when you believe you have found a perfect love only to discover, really someway down the road, the violent mood swings of your beloved … and what pain … oh this is beautifully told.

Who is Sarah Broadhurst


Crazy Love by Leslie Morgan-steiner

When Leslie met her husband Conor she felt she’d found the man of her dreams. Smart, attentive and devoted to her, he was all she’d ever hoped for and it wasn’t long before they were married.

But worrying cracks began to appear in this seemingly perfect relationship. For whilst Conor could sometimes make Leslie feel loved and cherished, at other times his abrupt, violent mood swings left her deeply troubled. And as the violence escalated, Leslie felt trapped in a world of terror – a world from which she knew she had to escape.

Harrowing and yet compulsively readable, Crazy Love throws a spotlight on a brutal, hidden world of abuse. As it takes you on a rollercoaster ride through hell, it tells the story of how one woman was forced to confront a painful truth: the man she loved seemed determined to kill her.

Their sending me my first book to review 18 months ago re-awakened my fondness for reading, since then I have purchased some real gems.

Barry Griffiths

It's the first site that I visit when deciding on the next set of books to buy. A particular treat is being able to download an extract.

Tessa Olson

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

Sally Ellsmore

If you LOVE reading then you will love LOVEREADING! It's a 'novel' idea. Seriously though I could not recommend them enough.

Rebecca Whymark

What can I say, the clue is in the title Lovereading - and awesome books.

Sarah Davis

With literary excellence, humour and drama, Lovereading's got value and is a real stress-calmer!

Siobhan McDowell

Its jam packed with fantastic titles, informative descriptions & fantastic reviews and has a vast array of great features & competitions.

Linda Rollins

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
