|Reviews for Dempsey & Makepeace One More Bite Of The Apple|
| Rockbird86 chapter 117 . 12/8/2014
You know, a New Years Eve party at Winfield Hall sounds like a fabulous idea. Everyone they care about there to celebrate with them, the house decorated, caterers in. Perfect. Is Winfield licensed for weddings these days does anyone know? ;-) Just thinking out loud really...

I meant to say, thank you so much for putting Dempsey's Bar and house in Kingston. I grew up down the road and still don't live far away and I can picture all the riverside walks etc. Good move there! ;-)

Oh My Goodness. I feel like I've been through that with them, so emotional. That chapter totally wrung me out, i wanted to cry and shout with them. This is an amazing roller coaster, luckily I'm reading it all in one go, I have no idea how people waited for updates when it was being written!
| Rockbird86 chapter 29 . 11/7/2014
There is so much in this I don't know where to start. I have a hard time with then and now fics, purely from the point of being able to keep up but you make this so clear and it's easily defined and i'm totally gripped. Rather horrifyingly, I am racing through this, totally unable to put it down and suddenly the number of chapters that I was dazzled by a couple of hours ago already isn't feeling like enough! But I had to stop and comment on this chapter. It's reminded me how much I loved Spikings and how totally on the ball he was. He never missed a single trick and was way more clever than either of them ;). You nailed him in this chapter. Onwards and upwards!

I am not a particular fan of "now&then" stories so it took me a while to get around to reading this one. I have enjoyed your other stories a lot, however, so I decided to give it a go. And I must say that it was very, very good - but so very sad. I felt so sorry for both of them during the whole story. Those 23 years that they lost, all the awful things that they had been through, Dempsey missing the childhood of his daughter (it was a good thing that he had a son, though)... And I felt especially sorry for Dempsey who really did his best but the whole world seemed to have a conspiracy against their romance. Not to mention Harry who never seemed to stop doubting and misunderstanding and making assumptions, no matter how many times he tried to prove her that he really cared. It nearly made me scream when Juliette did that nasty trick with her underwear and Harry did not even stop to think that she might have been misled. Some detective! Oh well, "Art for Arts Sake" seems to be a lot more positive story and I have great expectations about it so please write more soon :)

This is my first review l stumbled across D&M fanfic by accident while looking for something on the internet but l gotta say l'm absolutely loving this story l can't seem to get enough thank you krato for an absolutely beautiful and riveting read xx

Okay, Krato, I'm not done reading this story yet (up to chapter 91 so far), but I gotta tell ya, I'm having a hell of a time putting it down. Every time I get a couple minutes (half an hour or so) to myself, I retire to a quiet place to read it off a laptop, I-pad, I-phone... whatever I can get my hands on. You are annoying the heck out of my travelling companions on this vacation, LOL! They keep asking me about this e-book that I'm reading (can't get to wrap their heads around the fanfic concept), so thanks for a wonderful trip! I'll thoroughly review the actual story in its entirety once I'm finished reading it, I promise!
Btw, I'm so wrapped up in this one, I haven't read the next chapter of "AFAS", but I'll get to it eventually. I just thought, after so many wonderful chapters here, I owed you at least a "OMG! I'M LOVING IT!" shout. :-)

Really enjoyed the story. I could not put it down. Loved the twists and turns. It ended perfectly but greedily I would have liked an epilogue i.e marriage on New Year Eve making the proposed party even more special.
I feel that there are still more stories to be told and question to be answered. i.e.
a) It would have been also nice to have an "a few years later" add-on or story.
b) They could also have a final "little" surprise - feasible and possible due to Jay's appearance - that could fun.
c) How successful was James security business? Does M know? D success should be acknowledge and celebrated especially after fighting the lows of the past.
d) How really owns the Blues Club.
e) D&M could start another business now the hall is vacant.
Congratulations on great story in you D&M universe.

wow,that was an epic story. Everything was fab even the sad bits cause I knew the end would be only someone could make that into a film... Thanks for writing it

So I've reached the end of my second bite of the apple and have enjoyed every word of it just as much as the first time round! Such a brilliant ending to such an exceptional piece of writing! From start to finish it's been such an epic and emotional journey. You had me in tears more times than i'd care to admit and I often found I literally couldn't put the story down! The terrible heartfelt lows were at times just too much to bear but were more than worth it for the incredible highs! From start to finish I felt their pain, their torment, their happiness and joy and most of all their undying love for each other! What a story! Thanks Kayt! X

Ooh that Juliette is one bitter woman. Kinda liked how Julius wasn't impressed by her disclosure. Think he really likes and respects Harry now & gets that she & Dempsey are meant to be.

"No chocolate fudge cake for you then, huh?" he said, squeezing her hand.
Fixing a smile, Harry repeated, "No chocolate fudge cake."
"Nah, we're missin' the repartee here," he said, still keeping hold of her hand. "I tell you you can't have the chocolate fudge cake," he gestured towards her, "you say, 'hey, who are you to tell me I can't have the chocolate fudge cake?' or words to that effect…" he jerked a thumb towards himself, "and then I come in with my line, 'well, if you got a headache, you ain't gonna be able to work it off with me later'." Ha! Love it! #puredempsey!
However I'm not loving the way Harry is doubting him right now but...11 seconds is 11 seconds... #men
