Eleanor was having trouble. Well - more than trouble, it was Angel Snow. Her boyfriend for the last six months was starting to show his true colors and Eleanor wanted nothing to do with him whatsoever. No matter what she told him he still didnít understand that it was over between the two of them.

Angel Snow was a stalker in every way imaginable. Even to the extent of following her, leaving notes and breaking into her apartment and other vile and threatening things as well.

Eleanor meets a wonderful man at her waitress job in the process of trying to break free from Angel. Emile comes to Eleanorís rescue numerous times and helps her deal with Angel and move on. Move on is exactly what she does with Emile.

In getting away from Angel she breaks all but a few connections with her life with him. She starts a new career and a new life with Emile. With her life in turmoil she realizes that she has a growing affection and love for Emile. Emile also has feelings towards Eleanor and neither let her past or his get in the way of their life now.

Act of Love was a story full of heartache, triumph, sorrow and love. The story made you want to stand up and fight for the injustice done to Eleanor and what she was going through with Angel, the turmoil he was putting her through. It also can bring tears to your eyes at the anguish she suffers. The act of violence that only a madman can commit and be able to get out of without harming a hair on his head. The growing love between Eleanor and Emile was sweet and interesting to see, as they did not rush it, but took it one day at a time.

The ending of Act of Love was a little surprising but if you think about it you can see it is a perfect ending to a tale of love that started out on shaky ground but ends up solid. This is the first story I have read by Sophie Simonet and it will not be the last - she is able to keep you captivated and make you feel like you are right there with the characters.
