Nash was alright. I had thought it was going to be better than it actually was. When it follows the books Rule and Rome which I loved, I had high hopes for this one too. It didn't live up to those books. The storyline itself is great. It dealt with some pretty big stuff that people have to deal with everyday. Everyone and anyone can relate to Nash and his problems.
I originally loved Nash in the previous book and I loved him in this book too. However, I didn't like Saint. She was too much of a weak person. Nash needed someone strong to fit into his world and his group of friends and Saint wasn't it. She lived too much in the past. I know the past can have a big impact on the way a person is in the future but Saint took it a little far with the past stuff.
Nash had to deal with some pretty big stuff. I was surprise he could get over finding out the guy he thought was his uncle his whole life was really his dad and then him dying. I also like that the other people from previous book made an appearance in this one. I always like knowing what the other characters are doing. I didn't like Nash's mom and stepdad. I think they were rude. I don't care if she didn't want a kid, she end up having Nash so she needed to get over herself and be a mom.
Nash and Saint met in high school. Saint had a huge crush on Nash. Saint overheard Nash talking about someone who Nash doesn't even remember talking about and Saint's feelings got hurt in the process. Now, they're adults, Saint is a successful nurse at the hospital that it seems like Nash keeps having to visit since everyone he loves keeps getting hurt and sent there. Nash sees Saint as someone worth all the trouble. He wants her. Saint has walls up since Nash hurt her before. She's scared of letting him and everyone else in too. She shy and awkward and doesn't want to be let down. They go through all the ups and downs in a relationship. Nash gets to a point where he's tired of trying to figure out Saint. Saint thinks she's messed up the best thing ever to happen to her. She realizes she's worth it and goes back to Nash. Nash's dad dies. Saint helps him. All of Saint's walls come down. The end.
Rowdy is the next book in the series and I can't wait. Rowdy is a mystery to me. He doesn't really make much of an appearance in the previous books so I can't wait to get in his head.
Twisted jumped right into it. There was no build up or anything like that. It got to the point and I loved that. I didn't have to read pointless stuff to get to the good part. Twisted was from Kate's POV but it still had the spunk that Tangled which was from Drew's POV had. I loved Tangled and still do. I loved getting into a man's head and Drew was pretty damn funny. Twisted still had all that. Drew made a regular appearance and his outrageous remarks were still there.
I loved Kate's best friend Delores. She is one of my favorite characters in the book. She is funny and I love how she says everything that comes out of her mouth. I also loved that she is a true best friend and always has Kate's back. Drew is my other favorite character. I wish every guy could be like him. There is just something about him that I love. I can't put my finger on it. I do however think he can be childish at times but that just adds to the character.
Drew and Kate had a huge misunderstanding in Twisted and instead of Drew acting like the adult that he is, he makes things worse. Kate is heart broken and can't get pass of Drew treated her. She thought they were going to be together forever. Drew thank god comes to his senses and tries to win Kate back. I think Drew needs to grow up a little but I do love his childish ways. I don't see how Kate could get pass what Drew did but I guess she just loves him that much.
I can't wait for the next book, Tamed which is Delores and Matthew's story.
I liked Tapout. It seemed different to me. The first book in the series Knock Out wasn't that great to me. However, Tapout was so much better than Knock Out. The main characters Caden and Sophie fell in love without even knowing it. They had amazing chemistry and the bickering about sex between the two were off the charts. I would have loved to see more steamy scenes between Caden and Sophie but the book didn't disappoint with what it did have.
Caden was an asshole pretty much throughout the whole book, but I fell in love with him when he got protective over Sophie. He had a very dirty mouth. He was sexy and he genuinely cared about Sophie even though he didn't want too. He tried to be romantic but failed miserably. He was a sexy fighter that I would loved to meet in person. He of course like every other fighter in a book out there has a screwed up past that he is running from or trying to forget.
Sophie was a strong independent women. She didn't take anything from anyone. She could take anything that anyone dished out including Caden. Even though, most of the time she got nervous or would blush when Caden talked dirty to her she would find herself and dish it right back to him. Sophie knew what she wanted in life and she wasn't gonna stop until she had it.
Sophie and Caden met in Knock Out when Sophie accidentally hit Caden with a camera. He considers her bad luck and wants nothing to do with her. Because of the accident Sophie lost her job and all the hard work she did. Sophie decides to go on tour with the fighters from the MMA and film a documentary to get some of her hard work back. Caden and the other fighters don't want her around at first. They eventually come around. As Sophie is filming her documentary she uncovers some crazy stuff behind the scenes. Caden has his own secret investigation about drugs going on too.
Then there is Jerry. I hated Jerry. He's the boss of the fighters and he is super shady and I just didn't like him. I felt sorry for him. He is bad news but at the same time I want him to have a happy ending. I feel like the author purposely wrote Jerry to be a horrible guy but I feel like he could make a comeback and turn out really good if the author wanted him to.
I hope there is a third book in the series with Anthony or Caden's brother. They both deserve a happy ending.
Synopsis: He was lost and alone. Then he found her. And the future seemed more fragile than ever. As a child, Landon Lucas Maxfield
believed his life was perfect and looked forward to a future filled
with promise — until tragedy tore his family apart and made him doubt
everything he ever believed. All he wanted was to leave the past behind. When he met Jacqueline Wallace, his desire to be everything she needed came so easy. As
easy as it could be for a man who learned that the soul is breakable
and that everything you hoped for could be ripped away in a heartbeat.
Teaser: ‘Kiss me and find out how much.’ She went to her toes, her eyes mischief
incarnate as my fingertips trailed up over her shoulder blades.
Walking her backwards to the passenger side and pressing her to
the door of her truck, I wanted to unfasten those tiny hooks at her
nape, and she knew it.
What she didn’t know: I had some torture of my own to impart.
Closing that final inch, I captured her mouth with mine. I traced
her full lips with the tip of my tongue and just barely swept inside as
Synopsis: Fallen Too Far was Blaire's story. Now it's time for Rush to share his side. Everyone
in Rosemary Beach thinks they know how Rush Finlay and Blaire Wynn fell
in love. But Rush is back to tell his side of the story. Rush
has earned every bit of his bad-boy reputation. The three-story beach
house, luxury car, and line of girls begging for time between his sheets
are the envy of every guy in Rosemary Beach, and Rush handles it all
with the laid-back cool of a rock star’s son. All he needs are his best
friend, Grant, and his sister, Nan. Until Blaire Wynn drives into
town in her beat-up pickup truck with a pistol under her seat. The
Alabama farm girl instantly captures Rush’s attention once he discovers
that the angelic beauty is his new stepsister, but he vows to keep his
distance. Even if she needs his help. Even if he craves her. Because
Rush knows why Blaire is all alone in the world, forced to ask for help
from the father who abandoned her three years ago. And he knows if he
gets too close it will destroy Nan, who has a secret connection to
Blaire. He has every reason in the world to stay away from her. Find out why he doesn’t.
Teaser 1: It had been so easy to close my eyes and sink into Anya while picturing Blaire’s face looking up at me.
At the sound of her name, I dropped my hand and looked at him. “She still here?” I asked.
Grant nodded his head toward the windows. “Out
there. In a fucking bikini. I may stay here all day instead of going to
work, if you don’t mind. Besides, you owe me one for taking Will home
and dealing with the evil witch.”
I grabbed my discarded sweats and yanked them on quickly before walking over to the window.
Miles and miles of empty beach stretched just
beyond my front yard. Blaire was lying out there with her eyes closed
and her face tilted toward the sunshine. Yeah . . . Grant’s ass was
going to work. He wasn’t staying here to sit around and stare at her all
“She’s gonna burn,” Grant said in a hushed
whisper, and I tore my gaze off Blaire to see him staring down at her
just as reverently as I was. Fuck that.
“Don’t look,” I snapped, and moved back from the window.
Opening my eyes against the bright sunlight, I squinted, realizing I had
forgotten to close the blinds last night. Then Blaire’s scent hit me,
and I rolled over to an empty bed. Shit. She was gone.
