Review: CASCADE by Lisa T. Bergen

This is the 3rd book I've read this year.

Mom touched my underdress—a gown made six hundred years before—and her eyes widened as she rubbed the raw silk between thumb and forefinger. She turned and touched Lia’s gown. “Where did you get these clothes?”
Gabi knows she’s left her heart in the fourteenth century and she persuades Lia to help her to return, even though they know doing so will risk their very lives. When they arrive, weeks have passed and all of Siena longs to celebrate the heroines who turned the tide in the battle against Florence—while the Florentines will go to great lengths to see them dead.
But Marcello patiently awaits, and Gabi must decide if she’s willing to leave her family behind for good in order to give her heart to him forever.

Language: None. It' good to read a book like that. :)
Romance: Lots of kissing. I mean, LOTS of kissing. But it wasn't bad kissing, it was REAL love kissing. And talk about marriage, and being without the other is like part of them is somewhere else. 
Violence: It's in Medieval Italy, during a war. There's lots of blood and swords in places you can't imagine. (like throats and eyes, and ears) Lisa does a good jog describing it, but not in a way you want to go throw up, just enough that you know someone just got hit or struck. 

Any other bad things: Gabi thinks that this one guy might be gay, because he wasn't interested in her at first. And there's always the ongoing argument about if Gabi and Lia should stay, or go back. And Gabi keeps getting hurt, I mean. A LOT. Poor girl. :( 
Comments: I LOVED this book. At the beginning, it was just a normal good book, but as I got further into it, I couldn't stop reading it! I love books set back then. It's so cool to read about what life was like back then.  And Lisa does a great job doing it. I can't imagine all the research she had to do. And it's written so well! And Christian. (even better!) I also loved how most of the guys were so nice, and not all...well...guy really. Like, they were really knight's in shining armor. Both figuratively, and literally. 
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars.
(Yes, I am moving on to TORRENT now!)
