I’ve been hearing back from readers on Loving Edits and thought I’d share a few nice words on this m/m/m romance.
From a dear friend and writer who’s read my work for years.
So much to say about this amazing story. Such a touching story about unconditional, fully whole hearted love of many kinds. It really showed the capacity of the heart. I thought at the beginning of the story I would probably identify with Mick the most, but was suprised to find Tono was the one I seemed to care so much about.
The way you brought these characters together, slowly and carefully intertwining their lives was just so realistically done. The push and pull, love and hate between Tono and Paul was wonderful and I found myself cheering through tears for all of them.
From another reader …
It made me cry. But they were happy tears. A wonderful romance about unconditional love between 3 very complex men. I’ll always remember it, the ending was just perfect. A must read for all true romantics, I never put it down, & I’m sure you won’t either. The characters just draw you in & I fell in love with all three of them. The sex was hot, but so full of the love between them, it brought tears to my eyes at times. I highly recommend this book it was a pleasure to read.
From Jason over at Goodreads who gave Loving Edits a 5 star rating
Although the subject matter of this book is heavy and could have made the read laborious, it didn’t. The author focused on beauty and finding happiness in the moment. It becomes obvious in reading that Ms. Ashling has to have some intimate knowledge of the disease she describes and yet for all the horror that even reading a description of this disease can cause, the book left me with a sense of love and happiness, not with loss. It is true artistic talent to be able to take such an intensely painful subject and present it in a way that offers hope. How can a book with this kind of subject have a HEA? Yeah, you just wait and see.
From Elaine, also at Goodreads who gave it 5 stars
Loving Edits broke my meh reading spell with its characters, specifically Paul, the wealthy publisher and Tono, the sexy, hot Spanish Jai Alai player. Those two were combustible together.
Mick is in love Tono.
Tono, current partner, loves Mick with a till-death-do-we-part kind of love.
Paul, ex-partner, still loves Mick.
Paul is disdainful of Tono.
Tono detests Paul.
…I had a blast watching those two fall in love, kicking and screaming all the way.
As for Mick, he stays in the background in a sense, even though he’s a main character and this book is a menage – so be warned, those of you who dislike them. But what a menage! I’d say this is my favorite menage evah because it isn’t about sex. It’s about a dying man wanting to help him partner cope with his impending loss and ends up giving him more than all three expected. Loving Edits is funny in parts with some hot breathless sex scenes, filled with love and a tinge of bittersweet at the end.
It was a wonderful story for me.
