Review: “When It’s Love”- Emma Lauren

The Book:

When It’s Love is contemporary new adult fiction like you’ve never read it before.  Sexy from page one, this book follows college student Sydney Morrison as she tries to break away from the dark truth about who she really is. And as she unexpectedly tumbles into a torrid online affair with her professor, she exposes herself in ways she never imagined.

Then Sydney’s darkest secret begins to hunt her down just when she thinks she’s escaping it. Suddenly nothing is what is seems to be and Sydney finds herself torn between truth and love.

The Review:

Let’s be honest here. Adult novels are considered to be fluff—the stuff of lesser writers who haven’t got the talent to be thriller writers? Right? Right? Wrong.

There is nothing “lesser” about Emma Lauren; and “When It’s Love” is nothing more than pure, prime rib steak. You want a satisfying book to read? You found one.

What really makes “When It’s Love” special is not that it’s hotter, spicier or more sexual than other novels in this genre—it’s true that this book is all of those things—but the writing style really grabbed me from the off. I found myself drawn into a world that normally only applies when pro-writers like Stephen King put pen to paper. It’s the story of Sydney Morrison and her desperation to break away from who she really is. Twists, turns, and sexual encounters ensue, all leading to a conclusion that you will not easily recover from.

Praise for Emma Lauren is more in order than ever as she has put together a book worthy of your attention. A book that, although won’t be a classic, will be a bestseller; and that has already been proven. “When It’s Love” broke into the top echelons of Amazon on its first day of release, and is currently, at this time of writing, climbing again. I think for all readers who want to read something with some fire in its belly—this is the book for you.

Sex, sex, sex… Some really hot sex scenes in this one, guys and girls… Did I mention that this one has some great sex? It does…


Yes, this is Emma Lauren’s first book, and I’m sure there are things I could find fault with. I’m not a literary snob, just a reader, and if you want a book that has all the makings of a hot, HOT read with great characters, dialogue and some real depth, this is the one.

Worried about cold winter nights? Don’t worry—“When It’s Love” will keep you cozy and warm.
