Product Description

Product Description


This is the first book in the Lily's Story saga by bestselling author Christine Kersey.

When college student Lily Jamison receives an ominous note telling her to "Stay away from him", she convinces herself it's a mistake. After all, she's barely met the two men it could be referring to. But as she begins to fall for the man with the striking blue eyes, the disturbing messages increase.

Refusing to believe warnings from an anonymous sender, and trusting her own heart, Lily presses forward with her relationship, eventually coming to understand the meaning behind the messages as she fears for her life.

He Loves Me Not is a clean romantic suspense novel.

BONUS: Includes the first chapter of Don't Look Back (Lily's Story, Book 2).

Easy book to read, a little chaotic life she has and you feel at some point shaking her to wake up. But overall, good read.

This is not a mystery. I only kept reading hoping the tone would change. It is depressing, and the main character is so naive it's hard to get behind her mistakes in choices she's made. The abuse from husband was too much to take. I thought this was a mystery mixed with a love story. It is not. It is yet another woman who makes bad choices, doesn't read the signs, and falls into an abusive marriage. No mystery here.

HASH(0xa1d5b174) out of 5 stars Very simple, very annoying Oct. 7 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I got through reading this book because it is an extremely easy read. I started it, so I finished it. But I did not enjoy it. I found the writing style very amateurish and uninspired. The main character could not have been more incapable of making a good decision. If there was a solid reason for this, it should have been explained better. Her mother passed away when she was young, but her Dad was extremely supportive until he passed before she went to college. But she claims to have had a solid upbringing, not one of turmoil making her incapable of recognizing when things aren't quite right. I think if a main character is determined to self-destruct, you should explain why. She was "in love" after one or two dates. I could almost accept that, if the author gave me cause for this. There was nothing. The object of her affection was closed off and revealed nothing about who he was, yet her heart "swelled with love" at the mere sight of him. If the author wrote, "my heart filled with love", "my heart swelled with love" one more time...
After an entire book of a girl ignoring every sign pointing to, "this guy is bad news", you kind of give up on her completely. She goes from sympathetic, to pathetic. If the writing had been more intriguing, clever, humorous, anything, I could have hung in there better. Instead I just raced through it, praying for the end. When it finally came, I realized this was the first of a series of books. I always finish a book I start, so I did, the entire time, hoping for something better to happen. It didn't. I needed to finish this book, but in no way am I tempted to pick up the next installment. This series will go on without me. I wish I could be more positive. I think a very young audience might receive it better, but if you older than 22, I would not recommend it.

HASH(0xa1d5b3c0) out of 5 stars Astoundingly Bad March 3 2012
By C. Barone - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I am compelled to write my first review because of how awful this book is. Even as a freebie it is way overpriced. The entire tone of this "novel of suspense" is monotone. I'm not sure if I read the same book as the other reviews. The main character is supposed to be damaged and shy, but she's written as really simpleminded, with no real evidence as to why she's making bad decisions. Really upset that my time was wasted, I could have organized my closets and been more excited.

HASH(0xa1d5b384) out of 5 stars I found this story to be quite traumatic and exhausting to read. Jan. 11 2013
By Sandy G. - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I did not like this story at all. The beginning (and summary) sounded like a bit of a mystery was going on, which intrigued me. However, at the point where the abuse began, the writing became very predictable. I found it very difficult to read an account of a man abusing his wife, so from that point on I skimmed through it to see if things got better. They did not. The ending didn't have closure. The woman was not free from her husband, she was just on the run from him. I will not be reading the sequel, because the first three chapters give the sense that the whole book will be spent with this woman trying to keep from being found by her husband. I would not recommend this book to anyone.

HASH(0xa1d5b678) out of 5 stars Disappointed Dec 1 2012
By J. Chipping - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I decided to read this book after reading several good reviews, but I've read a lot of great books lately, so this one suffered horribly by comparison. It reminded me of a 4th grader's writing style (ie. 'He went to get the remote control and turned on the TV.' 'I was sad and started to cry.''I loved him so much and he was being mean to me.') Those aren't direct quotes from the book, but they're close from what I can remember. Honestly, it's difficult for me to even recreate the type of juvenile writing style Ms. Kersey uses. The plot of the story was a huge let-down as well. She introduces characters or ideas and then drops them. She might expound more in the sequel, but I knew I couldn't force myself to read that too. I only finished reading this one because I don't like to leave a started book unfinished. This one is really better left alone.

HASH(0xa1d5b6d8) out of 5 stars Why was this book written? March 1 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I don't believe I have ever read a book as awful as this one! This book is proof that too often we get what we pay for. Yes, the plot of an abusive husband involved in illicit activity has been overdone, BUT the right author can transform a simple, reused plot into an enjoyable read. Not Christine Kersey! I think it is a literary crime that this writer is allowed to publish her work and subject other people to it! And why oh why was this author's work likened to that of the incomparable Mary Higgins Clark!!!!!

Here are some of the problems with the book.

The main character, Lilly, starts out being a determined young lady bent on maintaining her independence and achieving a good education. Then she meets Trevor, a character who at the onset is little more then a dull stereotype. She literally bumps into him and falls in love with him (very realistic?). A week later he is crazy about her too and within the span of a few weeks he pressures her to get married and she DOES IT! Only in Walt Disney movies do two characters race so quickly to the alter. She knows very little about this man and the little she does know is highly suspicious. Then we are expected to feel sorry for her when her marriage inevitably goes bad.

It takes 300 pages for the author to write what could have been condensed to 100 pages especially since the novel has no ending, which works because it has no character development. Other characters include Nicole and Michelle. All we know about these young ladies are their names. Then there is Alyssa, the prophetic and relentlessly judgmental best friend of Lilly (a friendship that is never developed). Alyssa is determined to dislike Trevor even though initially she has no reason to. She is also a saint who drops everything to help the main character. Lastly for some inexplicable reason, Alyssa knows the thoughts and heart of her friend Justin, and tries to force Lilly to be with him. Justin's character is (surprise) never developed. I have no idea why he is even included in the book except for to provide fodder for Trevor's abuse. We are told that Justin is a nice guy but his selfish behavior contradicts that. For example, even though Justin senses that there is tension in Lilly's marriage he still tries to force his friendship on her, knowing that it could jeopardize her marriage and well being. Then just as suddenly as they are introduced, Justin and Alyssa disappear from the novel.

Next there is Bronson who is more of a caricature than a character. His best friend ask him to do a very delicate and crucial favor, but Bronson is sidetracked by the offer of a free meal. And this is the climax of the book!!!!!!! The least developed character is alluded to throughout the book but we are not introduced to her until almost the last chapter. She meets Lilly in a public restroom just to tell her (surprise) that Trevor is mean. I couldn't believe it! The more I read the more I was convinced that the author had no real objective when she wrote this book. She just added details as she went along and hoped it worked. The most crucial point of the book, Lilly's attraction to Trevor and her determination to marry him is never explained. We are just supposed to accept that after a few passionate kisses she should be with him forever. Even a novice writer could have included a special striking characteristic about Trevor, aside from his nondescript good looks, that would have drawn Lilly to him. Perhaps even a mention that Trevor reminded Lilly of her deceased father would have made the reading audience understand her preoccupation with him. But we get nothing!

I am an avid fiction reader and I know that sometimes you have to suspend your disbelief in order to enjoy a novel, but this writer never succeeds in persuading the audience to go along with her poor plot devices. There is so much absurdity in these 300 pages that you read the book longing for it to get better. There is nothing good about this book! It is poorly written, there are glaring grammatical issues, the same word is used twice in many of the sentences e.g. "Trevor went to work so he could work",there is no character or plot development!!! A high school student taking an intro creative writing course could have produced better material, that included basic plot structure and a reasonable ending. If you possess any love of good fiction or even any desire to retain your present IQ do not read this book.
