Please take your time Jane! No need to rush art. This is a beautiful piece of work that needs to be molded and shaped carefully. Kudos!

This is different your Leigh seems sometimes to be the one who instigates the relationship. It's been years since I've read it but in the book I thought what happened was not consentional. But that doesn't really matter at Leigh's age it still is considered criminal. I find that I want to reread the book after reading your story. I agree with what you said at the start of this story, Heaven and Cathy had the better storys. I liked Dawn and Melody's books too but not as well. While Ruby and the Runaways were not series I liked. The only other book I read was My sweet Audrina, I liked that as well. I thought VC did write it not whomever they hired to write 'like VC did'. I always thought she did because if she lived I think it would've been made into a series like the are other books I just haven't read them. If you are one to answer reviews I would be curious to know what you think of the others. I look forward to reading more.

I'm loving the direction you're taking this! It makes me sad to think that Leigh and Tony's relationship has to eventually end, but I'm excited to see how you'll explain it. Great job, more!

I absolutely love this story, but I'm a little disappointed about Leigh and Charity. I would have preferred that the sexual relationships be between Leigh and Tony, not Leigh and Charity. Still, keep going with the chapters! I would love to see how this turns out!
| Lord Mortensen chapter 14 . 8/6/2013
Awesome! update soon!
| SarahBlackwood chapter 14 . 7/18/2013
Excellent job I love the little details like the way Tony smells like starch from his shirt.
The whole scene with Charity really illustrates how jaded Leigh has become. Also a wonderfully daring thing to write!
You've shown Leigh's development beautifully and it's become increasingly clear how trapped she is with Tony the only adult she can count on. The last scene between them broke my heart.

So beautifully written! I found myself so lost in the story.. Thank you for writing this! I will be hoping for an update to this wonderful story
| gwendy chapter 13 . 12/17/2012
Oh my God! An Update! Thank you!
It certainly wasn't what I expected. To be honest, with everything that went on in the last chapters, I expected a hot and heavy affair to have already started but man oh man! This is so much better! The tension, oh Lord, the tension! The suspense! You leave us wanting for more!
Okay, I'm done gushing now. Excellent work as always. The emotions are so raw and definitely build up to something. I shall continue to eagerly await for the next chapters. Hopefully I'll still have nails left to chew on until then. Awesome job!
| EchoesOfSilence chapter 13 . 12/16/2012
Awesome! I still love how you're bringing this story to life. The emotions are so incredibly real. I look forward to your next update, as always. :)

EDITED REVIEW (from below)
In comparably few short pages compared to the original Web of Dreams, you have managed to tell a better story and gave more depth to the tumult within the Tatterton household, especially the tragic story between Tony and Leigh. This fanfic was able to clarify everything from the past 3 books. Unlike the ghost writer, you did your homework and tied up all the loose ends nicely thus far and I am confident you will do just as great with the next chapters.
I was especially in awe at how you gave more depth to Tony Tatterton's character, unlike in WoD wherein he was basically depicted as some sociopathic pedophilic rapist who eagerly agreed to his wife's hints to use her daughter as an outlet for his sexual frustrations. With Ruined Paradise, you were able to fully explain Tony's motives and I can already see how this will nicely lead to his eventual obsession with Leigh until his death. I especially love how you were able to turn things around from WoD and are actually able to elicit sympathy for Tony's character...a young man, disillusioned in the woman he married, leaving him to cling on to the last pieces of a broken dream.
As for Leigh, you have managed to take her down from her angelic pedestal and made her more human. In adding human frailty and fault to her character, us readers are better able to relate to her and her character makes a lot more sense now.
I and others will be awaiting the next parts of this dark tale. Thank you for writing this!
