    4. 4 1 2 to 5 StarsIt s been days since I ve read Frayed Silk and I m still thinking about it even now For me, that s a sign of a good book No matter how much I want to down play the aspect of cheating that took place in this book those of you that have read this story may understand my feelings , there definitely was cheating So be forwarned It may have seemed justifiable at the time, but there was no excuse for what the heroine let happen and no one understood that than her Her devastation at re [...]


    5. FRAYED SILK A full length, stand alone romance novel by Ella FieldsI went into this knowing that my heart would be torn in two, slayed in half, an emotional ride that would wreck havoc on my very being and that s what Ella Fields delivered in a heartbeat That first page grabs you unexpectedly, a wife, a mother to two adorable children, a woman struggling to get through to her husband, a marriage of ten years crumbling down around her feet, a man that hasn t touched or offered her kind words in m [...]



    6. maybe we re all a little broken.Some of us are just better at hiding the missing pieces Cheating is my biggest pet peeve I try to avoid such books and I probably would have never read this book if I didn t spot Julia s review.She honesty included the major spoilers and it made me curious.I m glad I read this book It s very interesting, almost clich free and has an unique plot.Surprisingly or not, coz I m often that girl with different opinion my sympathy for the main side characters was differen [...]


    7. 4.5 Stars What an achingly, captivating read illustrating the consequences of what can happen when communication breaks down in a marriage relationship I mean like WHOA I will never forget Leo and Lia Can t wait to dive into Jared s story


    8. I must admit, this beautiful cover caught my eye and led me to read the blurb Once I read the blurb I was intrigued and decided to take a chance on a new author for me and boy was I happily rewarded This story does involve cheating so if that is one of your triggers then I suggest you pass But I will say this story is written with heart and soul and the author was able to make me understand the gravity and consequences of the cheating.So let me begin.There is an authenticity to this emotional st [...]


    9. 3.5 StarsOverall Opinion This was not quite what I was expecting, but in a good way I enjoyed it, but I felt like something was missing I think it would ve been extremely beneficial to have the H s POV Some of his behavior was kind of cruel toward the h, and even though I understand the reasoning behind it by the end of the book I wanted to understand him I get that they had some hot sex and a lot of it by the end , but I wanted in the form of communication and groveling along with the hot sex [...]


    10. 5 Secrets We Keep StarsWell, hello Ms Ella Fields I m not sure how you know how to write exactly what I love, but you do Each time First as a debut duo as Lou Ella Fields with The Expiration Duet and now with the debut standalone Frayed Silk I was mezmorzed Captivated Heartbroken Slightly obsessed And finally made whole again The angst and the emotions bleed from the pages The twist and unexpected surprises kept my blood pressure sky high and my emotions all over the place I went in blind which [...]


    11. What on earth am I going to read next, because this was absolutely brilliant Now then there s cheating, it s not hidden so if that s a trigger maybe you want to avoid this book, keep your blood pressure down and then you don t need to shit all over the book when said cheating commences There you go, I said it, there is cheating in this book, but all is not as it seems There are good reasons for what happens and the cheating is not done gratuitously Should she have done it Probably not, but then [...]


    12. 4.5 starsIt s not love you should fear but, rather, the things you might do for it.You know it s a good sign when you re highlighting the epigraph To say I loved this story would been an understatement And the ironic thing about it is I don t gravitate toward stories with cheating and or love triangles Not because I hate the content, but because I typically don t enjoy how authors portray such stories I don t believe all infidelity is black and white Frayed Silk is a perfect example of this Dahl [...]


    13. Frayed Silk was intoxicating Once I started reading I couldn t put it down I was completely mesmerized with Dahlia and Leo s story How their marriage had strayed so far from what they used to have The helplessness Dahlia felt and her attraction to another man The repercussions of her actions but there s always two sides to a story and I couldn t wait to find out why Leo was behaving the way he was I loved the twist I loved the flashbacks to Dahlia and Leo when they first met and most of all I lo [...]


    14. Wow This is my first Ella Fields book, but it won t be my last I loved her writing, it freely flowed, yet held weighty emotion that sucked you into the story.I don t know where to begin without giving anything away and I don t want to do that This story MUST be experienced first hand It s original and captivating with real, flawed and relatable characters And I love how Ella took something so real, yet rarely acknowledged and did a phenomenal job of bringing it into the light Are you intrigued n [...]


    15. 4.5 Only Ever Always You Stars Maybe we re all a little broken Some of us are just better at hiding the missing pieces Flawless writing, captivating plot, and all the drama and angst you could ever want That s what Ella Fields delivers in the mind blowingly beautiful novel.Ella Fields is a master She really had me going the first 50 60% of this novel I kept going over the circumstances repeatedly trying to figure out what the hell was going on Never in a million years with an infinite number of [...]


    16. This was really good It s one of those addicting books that keep you reading way too late because you just can t put it down I kept reading in reviews that this was her debut novel, so I can t describe how happy I was to find out Jared has a book Swoon


    17. 5 STARSSSSS OMG, this book Gosh, I wish I had words I really, really don t have any words for how much I adored this book This actually took me out of my funk, and I can t even tell you how much of a relief that was I m not going to talk about the plot because all you need to know is in the blurb Its a story of a broken marriage and the characters try to pick up the pieces and try to survive the only way they know how Yes, it has cheating, ITS THERE IN THE BLURB So, please don t bash a book just [...]


    18. Overall, I liked this book because it was different It deals with really sensitive issues that should be discussed I ve been looking for books to broaden my horizons, and unfortunately that involves books with cheating, which I tend to stay away from This book wasn t fantastic, but I think the author handled these sensitive issues very well Spoilers The big reason why the hero pushes the heroine away to the extreme is view spoiler he was drugged and raped by one of the heroines friends and was [...]


    19. 4 starsAnything with angst spice up a story and knowing this book involves cheating, it s a sure bet to be an angsty ride To all who proceed, don t say I didn t warn you I ve read a couple of books that involves infidelity, not that I agree with it but because it was of a reality in life Some gave justification as to why they cheat, and this book wasn t any different Being completely ignored or left in the dark wasn t new to me either What I loved though is that the book doesn t solely focus on [...]


    20. Frayed Silk is exceptionally well written A love story with the unpredictability that will keep you engaged to the story I m actually shocked when I learned the reason why Leo became emotionally unattached to Lia, I didn t see that one coming The angst and the tension between two people who are still madly in love to each are just too much Ella Fields certainly surprised me with this book, it s captivating and intriguing at the same time Despite the warning, I was challenged to read it and glad [...]


    21. This is a book that involves cheating.Leo has closed himself off to his wife for the past 7 months Before that, they were really happy Dahlia tries to talk to him but he doesn t give any answers He acts as if she is invisible or as if there is nothing wrong with his detached attitude.To elicit a reaction from him, she asks for a divorce and he immediately rejects the idea Dahlia is still in love with her husband but she is also hungry for affection She is craving intimacy with her husband but he [...]


    22. Absolutely a 5 star read for me Ok let me start off by saying I am not usually a big fan of cheating in books This is because it s usually handled poorly and quickly forgiven with little thought on why it happened and what it means for the characters afterwards Not here Nope This author achieved the impossible she got me to not only overlook the cheating but to actively support the character in her choices This is a raw, heartbreaking story with plot twists you won t see coming I can t tell you [...]


    23. 3,8 Only ever, always you stars Apesar de n o gostar do tema trai o e estar bem ciente do aviso no final da sinopse foi imposs vel me segurar e n o ler esse, o que eu praticamente devorei Preciso deixar claro, bemmm claro, que eu detestei a Dahlia e por mais que tentei, n o senti empatia nenhuma por ela Revirei os olhos e bufei v rias e v rias vezes Love me Come back to me Look at me like you used to Touch me Stop breaking me E o mais importante, mesmo distante, frio e aparentemente sem nenhum i [...]

    25. This one sucked me right in and I barely put it down It gave me all the feels of a Taylor Jenkins Reid book where you swallow a tennis ball in the beginning and it just sits there until the end even though the writing style was much different It broke my heart than once If you want angst, this one s for you


    26. Love me Come back to me Look at me like you used to Touch me Stop breaking me.Sono queste le parole che Dahlia ripete mentalmente al marito nei primi passi di questo romanzo Non si sa cosa sia successo, non si sa il perch , ma Leo ha iniziato ad ignorarla, proprio come se non esistesse, di punto in bianco Ormai sono parecchi mesi che questa storia va avanti, Dahlia non riesce a parlargli, vorrebbe solo riavere suo marito indietro, lo splendido Leo che era una volta Ma tutto vano.Alla mensa dei p [...]
