    So many emotions, so many words, so many feelings ready to overflow. I'm sat here crying and hell the tears are stinging my eyes. This book has put me through the wringer. There have been many ups and downs, but to see how it all turned out, the bumpy journey was worth it.

    Noelle and Heath grew up as next door neighbours. They were the best of friends before becoming so much more. Whilst it seems that their life was blessed - and in so many ways, it was - it was also full of hardship, loss, betrayal and so much more besides.

    I loved how the characters developed, how they grew together from children, to teenagers and how they experienced so much together.

    The fact that this story is told in a mixture of past and present, as well as dual POV, it lets you live each moment as if you were really there.

    Trudy Stiles is one of the most amazing authors I have ever encountered, putting so much heart and soul behind every word on every page. The stories she crafts are full of so much love, not just between the characters but Trudy's love. You can tell that although she puts her characters through a lot - one HELL of a lot - she always tries to give them the best ending that she can.

    This story broke my heart, but then it mended it again. A second chance romance that permanently leaves its mark in your memory and your heart.

    There are so many things I could say here, but I don't want to spoil it for others. The truth is, this story needs to be experienced first-hand to really understand the heart of it.

    It can be read as a stand alone, but honestly, you'll be missing out if you don't read the previous two books, EPIC SINS and EPIC LIES. The band Epic Fail have a lot of history that you really should share in. If you haven't read them, then maybe this is the time to do so.

    As each of the stories unfold, there are so many bumps in the road to happiness. But that's something that I really wouldn't have any other way. If asked to choose a favourite of the three books, then I would say that EPIC LOVE is where I lost my heart, but then had it returned. There were a few times I flinched and on occasion I felt sick, but I wouldn't want to change a thing.

    It is my opinion that books like this, that make you really feel, they are the best kind. Not only did I establish an emotional connection with the characters, I felt as though I was right there with them. This story sucked me all the way in and held me hostage until the final word.

    I cried, I laughed, I loved, I got a little (okay a LOT) heartbroken, but it was all worth every second I gave to reading Noelle and Heath's story.

    It really kills me to 3 star this book. Trudy Stiles is always an author that brings out all my feelings and she's usually my go to author when I need good angst with a happy outcome. This one just ticked one too many of my pet peeve boxes and I couldn't enjoy it as much as I wanted to.

    I think one reason that I'm torn is because I loved the first half of the book. The past tense.

    I loved kid Heath and kid Noelle. Watching their love grow and bloom was the best part of the book. I love a good soulmate relationship.

    I started to have an issue when the "conflict" came about and I guessed where it was going. I think it was a bit too predictable.

    Grown up Heath is a member of a famous rock band but can't move on from the love of his life. However he did move on, kinda. I had a huge issue with who that person was. HUGE. I think I checked out of the book then.

    The second half of the book moved at warp speed. Everything was tied up too neatly and too fast.

    This one missed it's mark for me, but please check out this author's other works!.

    My Review:

    Epic Love was only my second Trudy Stiles read, but I have noticed both times now that the main elements that elevated her work head and shoulders above the library of books on my list included not only the tone and quality of her writing but her endearing and honorable characters as well. Rather than penning embattled characters in constant conflict with each other, I relished the tender and supportive relationships that her characters developed and maintained. Even as children and into adulthood, the main characters in Epic Love were kind, sweet, considerate, thoughtful and decent… the type of people I would want to know and associate with in real life. They support each other, work hard, wish others well, and treat each other with care and compassion. Ms. Stiles’s storyline plucked at my coronary muscle, then squeezed and wrenched it with a sorrowful backstory of loss and cruelty, and ultimately touched my heart with the gentle thoughtfulness of Heath and the gifts he had secretly collected for Noelle, which brought about full on blubbering. Heath was the perfect friend - to boyfriend - to lover. Sigh. I’m off to seek out firefly emblems.

    "She was the first girl I ever loved."

    I LOVE a good second chance romance novel. It brings to mind a feelings of hope. Noelle had a difficult childhood, and it was one she couldn't escape, even after it ended. Back then, Heath was able to offer her two treasured things, an escape and friendship, as he knew Noelle when her life was a tornado of chaos.

    "When all is forgotten you find new ways to rescue me."

    Shaken and stirred. This was how I felt at the beginning of Epic Love. Told in dual points of view it was truly a love story of epic proportions. It had pained moments of defeat and despair, but was also made light with sweetness and beautiful surprises. As beloved as these two were as a young couple, their reunion brought wave after wave of adoration that was sexy and alluring. The story was laced with a mystery that kept me flipping page after page, searching for answers, and praying they would be the ones I craved. When they finally began to emerge, I felt elation with an edge of panic that caused me to say a silent prayer. There was this monumental build-up to the storyline as my emotions became ping pong balls in play. At some point, they were emptied out, the sadness becoming so real, and my heart broke for Noelle. Then, at other times, I felt such an overwhelming sense of happiness that the grin could not be wiped from my face.

    Epic Love was a story of memories lost and found. It was a second chance love story that melted my heart and made me cherish this happily every after.

    Epic love is the third book in Epic Fail series and Heath's story. I could not wait for this book. There was something about Heath in the first two books that I just loved. I wanted to know his story and see him get his happily ever after

    Epic love is the third book in Epic Fail series and Heath's story. I could not wait for this book. There was something about Heath in the first two books that I just loved. I wanted to know his story and see him get his happily ever after

    Heath and Noelle met at the age of 10 when she moved into his neighborhood. They quickly became best friends spending all of their time together. Heath knew that there was something going on in Noelle's life that she wasn't willing to share and while he tried to talk to her about he never pushed too hard. As they got a little older they took their friendship to the next level. They were each other first loves and what a beautiful love it was. Until one day at the age of 18 Noelle disappeared shattering all hope of a future for the two of them.

    It is now 12 years since Heath lost the love of his life. He is a major rock star who can have any girl he wants. But the memory of his first and only love is still very much with him. He has not been able to move on from Noelle. He hasn't been in a serious relationship since he was 18. But he thinks maybe it is time to truly let go of her and move on. Until one phone call changes everything, completely turning his world upside down.

    I really love Heath and Noelle together. They really had a special relationship when they were younger. You could see what an amazing young man he was just by how much he cared for her when they were younger. I loved watching them in both the past and present and seeing how much their love for each other never died. No matter had long they were apart.

    As always Trudy still manages to bring out the emotions. This one touches on a very delicate topic and that had my emotions all over the place, at times breaking my heart and giving me knots in my stomach.

    I really loved Noelle and Heaths story and just loves the connection between the two of them. But for me personally there was a little something missing. I think one part of the story seemed to be resolved a little too quickly and easily for me. And I may have wanted a little more emotions from Heath but I won't get into that because I really don't want to spoil anything. Overall this was a great read and I have to say that Heath is by far my favorite member of Epic Fail. He was just so sweet and caring and just an amazing person. Now I cannot wait for Tristans story to see what is going on with him.

    Sometimes in life, people find a love like no other. An epic love. Heath and Noelle were lucky to be two of those people.

    For me, the book can sort of be talked about in two parts. In the “first” part, Heath and Noelle meet as young children when Noelle moves next door to Heath and his family. Their friendship turns into first love over the years. But things aren’t always happy and what they seem to be. I don’t want to get into the plot, but there is a lot going on. The first part is sweet, yet sad and heartbreaking at times. I wanted to cry at some parts. My heart was literally sad and I had a few moments where I gasped and said “Oh my god”. The “second” part is sort of the “after” to me. It’s sad at times too, but it’s so sweet and tender and beautiful. While the first part ripped out your heart, the second one puts it back together. We are reminded that things are not always as they seem. The journey Heath and Noelle take is breathtaking, creative and will leave you swooning. It’s really beautiful. And the ending. It’s perfect.

    As with all her books, Trudy’s writing is flawless. She tells the story as only she can- in dual point of view that switches at times between the past and the present. She does that so perfectly and always picks right back up where she left off. Heath and Noelle will get into your heart and stay there. Trudy’s books never disappoint and she has another hit with Epic Love. Go one click!
