    2. 5 STARS Every great love story has a beginning, whether it s a planned meeting, a random encounter, or an impulsive jump into the unknown But it s the middle of the story that really counts, the part when life happens either propelling the relationship into a beautiful romance, or dissolving into a predictable wasteland of misconceptions This is a beautiful and powerful quote that is the perfect opening for The Ballad, a unique, funny, and extremely honest telling of an epic romance As it was wi [...]

    3. What did you like best about The Ballad What did you like least I really loved all the life observations and how they were linked to music and television shows that were popular when I was growing up Adam s toast below is just one of many cool observations that season this wonderful ensemble novel Sometimes life can make you pause without warning a crossroad of choices, a brush of fate, or a dose of reality But in the end, it s simply a journey And if we re lucky, one to be shared with friends a [...]

    4. Wow, what an emotional roller coaster in the best way possible Such real life and love combined to make a masterpiece The bond between each of these characters is amazing Cousins, friends, lovers truly on a life journey Reading from ending to beginning is something I really enjoyed You understand the story from a whole new perspective A must read author Ashley Pullo is a genius.

    5. Complimentary copy provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.I thought Ms Pullo was speaking to me in the first book, The Album Little did I know, she could capture another stage of my life so eloquently with her latest release, The Ballad I, Chloe Ford, am the target audience for wrinkle cream, weight loss, and poorly written romance novels I might as well prepare for my move to one of those Adult Retirement Communities spending my golden years in rayon pantsuits and bragging abou [...]

    6. One of the things I love about both The Album and The Ballad is that you can read them over and over and over again, and you ll find new things to connect to each time This is why these books are worth every cent How many books do you feel like you can re read over and over again and never grow tired of and or find new meanings each time With the Ballad, in which the story of Adam and Chloe is told in reverse, I could imagine re reading it in chronological order and gaining a whole new appreciat [...]

    7. A re read of a 2014 favourite, back when it was called The Bridge This wonderful story has since had a prologue, extra chapters, and an epilogue added, which ties it in beautifully with the release of The Ballad, which needs to be read first.A palette cleanser, a departure from billionaires, bikers, fighters and rockers, this is simply a wonderfully lyrical story about a married couple It starts with a happy picture of a couple in their mid thirties, with children, celebrating her Chloe s 35th b [...]

    8. The Ballad is the heartwarming follow up to The Album which tells the tale of four friends and their journey towards happily ever after If you enjoy witty characters, plots that will tug on your heart and a reading experience that is unique, this is the story for you Must be read after The Album I was thrilled to spend time with the charismatic and witty Chloe and Natalie If they were real, we would definitely be BFFs I enjoyed the comedic relief each provided as these couples navigated the ups [...]

    9. Where do I begin This is a book that you can be assured will be read over and over and over I love that the happy ever after is at the beginning, then the story is told in reverse narrative and we see just how they got there Adam and Chloe are sheer perfection I usually go for the darker reads and let me tell you, there is nothing dark about this book It s real It s honest It s a journey that many married people find themselves on I think that s why it spoke to me so much, I could relate The wri [...]

    10. Heart stoppingI loved this book Adam and Chloe are the couple that made me laugh and left me in awe of their love for each other but Chris and Nat s story left me weak while at the same time gave me hope that their love would only grow A perfect romantic tale full of imperfect people.

    11. As I began this book, I was slightly concerned What if it is redundant I loved The Album SO MUCH What if this book somehow diminished or tarnished my opinion Ridiculous, I am It was a return to the characters with whom I fell in love in The Album, yes Oh, but this was a different story This was yet another uniquely delivered story that gave a great deal depth and insight for Chloe and Adam Chloe and Adam were key players in the other book However, in The Album, the author revealed just enough t [...]

    12. The Album is one of BFF K s Bestie Reads for 2014 It is an incredible, wonderful, funny, heart warming, tale of five friends written in the most unique style and format we ve come across in a long time I LOVED it So, I was thrilled with the recent release of The Ballad This is a companion novel to The Album sharing stories and vignettes from the lives and loves of many of the same characters in The Album The Ballad is like going to a reunion, but only seeing spending time with your most favorite [...]

    13. It s quite an accomplishment for a musician to build a story in reverseand maintain the momentum of a ballad The Ballad is quite an accomplishment, indeed Telling a story in reverse not only takes talent, it takes balls What Ashley has done in one book, many writers strive for their whole careers She wrote perfection A story of four friends four unique, lovely, extraordinary friends in one story, woven together like a seamless work of art I laughed, I cried, I felt as if I knew these people inst [...]

    14. Sometimes life can make you pause without warning a crossroad of choices, a brush of fate, or a dose of reality But in the end, it s simply a journey And if we re lucky, one to be shared with friends and family Adam Ford, The BalladThe Ballad is the story of Chloe, Adam, Natalie, and Chris Told in reverse narrative which I loved , it truly is a journey Babies and marriage, death and life, happiness and sadness This book has it all As I read, I felt like I was reminiscing with old friends Filled [...]

    15. Sometimes life can make you pause without warning a crossroad of choices, a brush of fate, or a dose of reality But in the end, it s simply a journey And if we re lucky, one to be shared with friends and family I finished the first book The Album an amazing 5 star read and couldn t wait to get started on The Ballad get of the characters and story I d already fallen in love with and of this talented authors wonderful writing I never dreamed that this book could be any unique original than the [...]

    16. If the album is about the love between two cousins who are also best friends then The Ballad is about the love between a husband and a wife The Album features three viewpoints Chloe, Adam and Natalie in that order Chloe s viewpoint makes up 75% of the book Its told in reverse narrative from different points in time We see Chloe and Adam s relationship and marriage through its ups and downs And even in their down s we realize that the love is still there This was beautifully written And I think I [...]

    17. Doris s Review A wonderful story that takes you through a journey of discovery in the luves of a married couple Like everyday couples that have romance, self discovery, humor, and hardship all of this is in this phenomenally written story This is a real story Excellently written, grabs you and pulls you into the pages I was given this book in exchange for an honest review I give this remarkable book 5 stars Dee s Review This book used an unusual approach to telling the story of love and life The [...]

    18. Loved reading this again with details I so want to be friends with Chole and Nat I love being reminded of so many details of past culture I lived.

    19. Brilliant follow up to the album I shed a tear or two but I laughed my ass off Absolutely brilliant humour Well done Ashley.

    20. makeop.I read it because I bought it I did not like it the backwards story, the re telling of things from book one, so dull.

    21. We met Adam and Chloe in The Album, now they are married with children Chloe is retelling her life with Adam to a magazine reporter, backwards It s fun to catch the references and then realize how it fits together There is a lovely segue into Natalie s story about their couple vacation and the surprise for her friends upon returning It takes a truly talented mind to tell a story in reverse and have it make sense You ll enjoy the pop culture references and immediately remember the 90 s The series [...]

    22. A must read I loved loved LOVED being able to see deeper into the lives of Chloe, Adam, Natalie, Chris After I read The Album I was eager and curious to see what else happened in their lives Like in The Album, you see that life isn t simple or easy, but that getting through all the crap there is definite sunshine at the end I love books where I feel a range of emotions and I was definitely laughing, smiling, crying, at times cringing my way through it.
