|Reviews for LoVe Forged in Fire|

Waah waah poor Mac. UGH STFU.

Actually, given that he raped her, there would have been physical tearing and the bruise on her cheek would also lend credence to her story. There's also no way Keith Mars would NOT investigate and take her seriously.
Of course, I'm sure that you've heard plenty of reviews to that effect already. But as a rape survivor, I thought you should hear another. You should also hear that no reaction to rape is "stupid" and to even say as much is incredibly insensitive and offensive. As you've never been raped and I have (and unfortunately molested as well), you cannot appreciate the level of dirt, shame and disgust felt. Women who are violated known damn well what society will think of them. Sometimes, we sit through a Criminology lecture with a professor telling us all about mythical "good college boys" who go to jail because of lying women, and how if a woman makes out with you, it's hard to stop having sex if she has no. Sometimes, we have our rapists tell us that the gibberish we muttered while in GHB was somehow encouraging the rape.
I was a Criminology major and survivor of abuse and I knew all of these things and knew that my having dated my assailant for two years (several years prior) would seal my fate. I showered and cried and hated myself. I eventually caved and went to a doctor to be certain that I had no STDs or lasting damage.
I've also worked as a rape crisis counselor. I've heard so many stories of so many women who went to the cops and were laughed away, who were too scared, who were so horrified they showered. The recent suicides of young women stalked and sexually assaulted, women threatened with jail for naming their rapists, make it clear why no reaction is more or less "stupid".
Jazmin may have reacted out of fear and shame, having weighed consequences, but to say she was less stupid because you wrote her and know this and don't know the brains of a TV or movie character or another real woman is disrespectful and hurtful. No woman's choice is stupid. It's the reason the Twitter hashtag #ididnotreport was flooded last year. I pray you never have to experience the hell of such an assault. But if you did, I would never judge you for any choice made.

AHHH! You never disappoint! Loved the update so much happened. I loved the way your wrote the Sinclaire thanksgiving, loved having Madison put in her place! ;) Okay and then the LoVe at the end, so sweet, Logan just keeps getting sweeter and sweeter! Loved it! Can't wait for more! :)

Fantastic chapter- loved the ideas of Daisy moving in with Mac and Parker, and Weevil moving in with Dick. Also loved that Madison's parents put their collective feet down. Looking forward to the next chapter.

I like this chatper I thought that it was nice of Mac and Parker to ask Daisy to move in with them because they could tell that she needed a friend and it would help them out as well. I thought the conversation between Dick and Weevil was funny because they don't normally talk to each other so to see them talking about living together was funny. I liked that Madison's parents finally put their feet dow and told Madison that she needed to apologize to Veronica and to stop acting the way she has been acting because it is not right. I feel bad for Ducncan he seems to really love Parker and it is hurting him to see her dating Piz. I of course love the LoVe scene even though it was short but it is nice to see them trying to move on and be happy about getting married and having children one day. I can't wait for the next chapter.

YAY! An Update! Love Love Loving this!
Love that Daisy is moving in with Parker and Mac. Loved Sinclair/Mackenzie Thanksgiving Dinner.
Can't wait to see what happens next...

Good to see Mac & Dick L & V in a good place for Thanksgiving... Poor Duncan... But I admire he doesn't want to play games to get to Parker... Good scene with parents finally confronting Madison's bitchiness... About time people! Weevil's shock at Dick's offer was genius... And Dick's nonchalance too... Like it was completely normal to have Weevil at the Casablanca's mansion...
| layoung13 5/13/13 . chapter 31
Good chapter. I hope Weevil accepts Dick's offer to move in. I'm glad Madison's parents finally set limits on her; maybe it's not too late. Daisy will be a good addition to the roommate house.
| DidiSummers 5/12/13 . chapter 31
Nice chapter! I'm glad that Daisy is moving in with Mac and Parker... Dick asking Weevil to move in, I just can imaging Weevil's face to that... Wow the Sinclairs giving a "reprimand" to Madisdon, shocking I wasn't expecting that, but I'm glad they did it... Aww it broke my heart when V start crying while she was holding Richie ( at least Logan was there for her and the reason why for him is always Thanksgiving was soo cute...
see ya! :D

Aww I loved it!:)
| Maggi Esk 5/11/13 . chapter 31
Daisy is moving in with Mac and Parker like it but you know what I really want to happen is Weevil living at Dick's place. God can't picture that.
"Are you sure about that one?" Duncan. that's exactly what I'm thinking but you already told me Trina is coming back. I really want him with Parker.
Logan and his everyday is Thanksgiving awww! So lovely.
| DevilJolie 5/11/13 . chapter 31
Great update! I loved the MaDi scene. I really loved the dinner with Mac's blended family, and I'm really glad that somebody finally disciplined Madison and that her parents put her in her place. I also enjoyed LoVe's Thanksgiving dinner. I'm really glad that Logan urged Duncan to keep fighting for Parker if he really loved her. :)
I can't wait for more. :)

Aww so sweet and i hope Daisy Shows Jase what he's missing coming up ;)
| Josielynn 5/11/13 . chapter 31
Again a wonderful chapter! I could see the build up for their return after the holidays. Good to see LoVe and MaDi in good places. Like the Parker/Piz/ Duncan triangle. I hope that Daisy works through her anger soon even if sometimes it is the only thing holding you together. Sense the Ritchie situation is just building up. Love all the storylines going on and how you keep them moving.

Loved the MaDi scene. It was great. Loved Logan and Veronica. My favorite of this chapter was Madison and her family. She does need to be nice and realize her actions have consequences.
