I have so many choice words I could use to share my feelings but if I typed them I am sure Amazon and goodreads and probably my own blog would never allow the post to go live !! FREAKIN Alexis Noelle is known now as the TORTURE AUTHOR...A new bad habit of mine , if I love the author I sign on for any of their work and let it surprise me !! WELL SURPRISE SURPRISE I WAS RIPPED TO SHREDS AGAIN !! This author knows how I feel about here so if I say I HATE her she won't take offense , it only means the story made me feel way more than I wanted to and I am slowly healing days later. She has been known to rip my heart out and stuff it back in all crooked and jumbled. Although I read these books as they each released on their own I love that they are now available in this set. These stories are so fast paced and I flew through them in a matter of hours , having them all in one would make for a longer read and a more torturous emotional shredding !! So here is a review broken down by story !! 5 stars each and 5 stars for all !!
Julia and Brian have been together for 4 years , all throughout her high school years. Julia and Dan have been best friends for years and their parents run in the same rich people circles. Brian has never liked Dan and of course he thinks Dan wants Julia etc etc...things a lovely love triangle are made of !! Julia's parents despise Brian and Julia has spent years defending their love. They have a heated kind of love , anger , fights , hot sex and tons of love and emotion. As they stand Julia is leaving for the summer on a trip with her best friend Lacey. it is their last night together but Julia also needs to go see Dan. Had Julia known what would happen once she fell asleep at Dan's she never would have left Brian. That night ruined everything they had spent 4 years building. Julia's life was a mess after that and she never knew why Brian took off. Now years later Julia has moved on in life and Brian is back home making her life crazy. It is undeniable when it comes to Julia and Brian's bond. With the wonder of what really happened that night lingering between them and the threat of Julia's new life happily married in their way can they set things straight or will fate step in and prevent us from all finding out the truth.
This story gets crazy , I swear I don't know how I didn't expect things as they happened but I was shocked as SH** and thrown off guard I honestly was blown away. Secrets . lies , things buried in the past coming back to haunt , I mean you really get it all. On top of all this Brian is just so freakin HOT and consuming I mean I couldn't even think straight once he started dirty talking. This is a must read , seriously go buy it now !! You will be surprised by the connections and twists and turns !! Is there an HEA ?? That is for me to know and you to find out !!!!!!!!!!
She almost went easy on us !! Just when I got comfy and was blissfully happy with how things were going BOOM out of nowhere we get slammed with a twist and a gut wrenching event. There was a topic in this story that is sadly such a real life issue it was great to see an author tackle the issue and have the character come out on top of it. Hunter may come off as the typical bad boy BUT I can bet money you will fall in love with him. As snotty as Sam may seem you will also fall in love with her !! They are great , love them as individuals and as a couple. Can't wait to see what comes next.
Hunter is known for his man whoring ways. He fits the bill - hot , cocky , single and doesn't give a crap about what others think. We start off with him at a bar scoping out prey and nailing one down for the night. Little does he know this one night stand may be anything but. He may come off as a jerk but it doesn't take long to see his softer side , his real side. The pieces of himself that he normally hides. All it takes is a slightly broken celeb to drag it out of him. This job may be nothing he expected but everything he didn't know he wanted !!
Samantha is on the fast track. A celebrity in the making. The fame and fortune isn't really worth it to her , she is miserable being managed by her mother. That woman is pure evil , OMG I wanted to BEAT HER DOWN !! Sam is never good enough and she is worked to exhaustion. Just one night away , that is all she craves. She doesn't expect to find a one night stand but going with the flow she gives in to temptation only to be made to feel just a horrible as she does by her mother. I seriously feel for this girl. With a threat looming over her there is new security hired. When they come face to face and realize they will be together day in and day out tensions run high.
With Sam as his new job Hunter knows he should keep his distance. Something about her draws him in. Her mother drives him crazy and the way she treats Sam has him twisted in knots. With Hunter as her protector Sam quickly realizes she needs to make a stand , her mother is relentless. Hunter and Sam make a great team. When the you know what hits the fan you will be shocked to see how it all unfolds. I really enjoyed their journey. Sam has some serious issues and problems to overcome. Hunter has a past he needs to share and put behind him for good. Will they help each other or will their relationship get in the way and just cause more pain ??
Oh the freakin TORTURE
Lacey has not only been betrayed by her ex husband but now once again all hopes and dreams for her future are on hold. Choosing to keep her news a secret she also decides to throw caution to the wind and finally see if Mason , a friend of a friend, will pay her any attention. There is a little game of cat and mouse during a drunken night and despite the talk of what would come of them being together something beautiful blooms out of this unexpected duo. Mason has his faults , his issues & secrets as well. He has his friends yet he doesn't let many close to him. He is straight forward with Lacey. No love , no feelings , no getting to know each other, just a physical relationship where they both get what they want and feel great while doing so. Of course we know how that goes and soon things are being thrown in their path that nobody expected. I am not a fan of secret keeping BUT the story flows well and I get it now. Such a tragic ending and as much as you can say it can be an HEA in part , I am just too destroyed to feel the peace. I really didn't think it would go there BUT it did and as much as I hate it I give credit !! Now in the midst of this playing out we get PLENTY of HOTNESS from Mason !! No denying the fact that he is book boyfriend , panty melting material !! The connection between the two of them is amazing and I loved watching them develop their relationship so honestly. Regardless of what they claimed to want it didn't matter , they couldn't stop the way it happened and if you can hang onto that you may get through the tough times !!
Thanks A LOT !! I was screaming and cursing in my mini-van outside my girls dance class while reading this book !! I admit I started out laughing and there were plenty of laughing scenes , especially that massage scene , OMG , that was awesome !! BUT that one part , everyone who read it knows what I mean , that one part , are you kidding me, I was convinced, devastated UGHHH , GOOD JOB !! This was a super quick read and a nice addition to the group. Nina had such a sad past and I am a dreamer as well and sometimes my dreams feel so real. I totally felt for her. The guilt , the wonder and then the truth WOW. Jake was great , I loved his sense of humor , his determination and of course as Uncle Jake OMG swoon !! There was a bit of everything in this story and some things I didn't expect and others I called. Regardless I enjoyed the read and look forward to more from this author !!
