Essence of Time

[SUMMARY] [REVIEWS] [COMMENTS] [INTERVIEW] [VIDEO]
For years, Rob Frietag has resisted anything resembling a true emotional connection, preferring instead to explore life, and his own desires, without committing to anyone for very long. The reason remains known only to a few, among them Jack Gordon, his college cohort in female conquests, and life-long friend. At thirty-seven, while he is close to achieving his career goal, head chef at a five-star restaurant in Chicago, he is still very much alone.

After an intensely emotional relationship with Suzanne Baxter in Ann Arbor, Blake's heart is left shattered. Completely broken by what he believes was his one true love, he arrives at a Chicago food and beer festival, prepared to drink his sorrow away. When the two men meet, their lives change forever. But time is of the essence. When Rob acknowledges his true feelings, he will stop at nothing to keep them together, including finding a surrogate mother for the child Blake so desperately wants.

Lila Warren is recovering from a nasty divorce, needs cash and believes carrying their baby will fulfill in her in ways her marriage never did. None of them could suspect that the connection they share would provide the final emotional key to their life-long puzzle. When Rob's secret is revealed, time becomes the one luxury they don't have, setting in motion a chain of events that destroys the fragile illusion of happiness for them, and everyone who loves them.

This book did it for me. I think my heart broke into a million pieces and I'm still trying to understand the twists and turns that this book had and the reason why it ended the way it did. Beware, you should have a whole box of Kleenex by your side because you will need it from beginning to end.

Rob and...

I adore Liz's writting style, she gets you so emotionally inenvoled that you don't want the story toend . The only draw back is that there aren't more books of her's out. I guess we do have to let Liz sleep some time LOL :-D

ESSENCE OF TIME       
The Essence of Time by Liz Crowe is 4th book in her Realtors Series; it arguably the best of the 4.  

Liz does an amazing job creating backstory for characters from Floor Time, Sweat Equity and Closing Costs.  It provides true prospective into many of the decisions they make and made in the prior books; decisions that on the surface were beyond frustrating but with the backstory make so much sense.

Liz's ability to develop more than just two main characters provides the Essence of Time with so many layers.  You will enjoy watching them all interact as their story develops. This story has wonderful and very sexy love scenes that intertwine with the raw emotions associated with building and maintaining a long-term relationship.  

This book is engaging; a true can't put me down read.  

Liz's writing compels you to become engaged with her characters; you will find yourself truly vested in their relationships and well being.

It is the kind of book that sits with
