♫ Sentenced (Jaded Regret, #1)
THE BAD BOY: I’m Johnny. An ex-con with a bad attitude and a controlling demeanor that somehow made the women flock to my bed but never my heart. It was unavailable for possession.
THE TEMPTATION: She was just supposed to be a two day hookup. But one taste of her and I knew I was in danger of never getting enough. She had her own demons to contend with, and dealing with my own was hard enough. I won’t allow temptation to take control of me.
THE SENTENCE: I’d given myself a life sentence a long time ago, and she made me want things I wouldn’t allow myself to have. Giving into it just might destroy us both.
This took me a little while to get in to. I had an issue clicking with the Johnny and Bex at first, but it didn’t take too long to be drawn in. They were both damaged, and it was awesome to see the transformation take place the further their “relationship” went. They brought out a better side of each other, even when they fought like cats and dogs. The chemistry between the two was intense, and added so much to the story. My heart broke for them, with their pasts, and when Johnny realizes he loves Bex. This book is definitely a must read!!!
♫ Snared (Jaded Regret, #2)
BEAU has never known a good life, only the torment that lives inside his head every day. The only way to block out the darkness that shrouds him is through the rhythmic beat of his drums. Knowing what happens when he opens up to anyone, Beau buries his pain deep inside, keeping it all to himself.
APRIL has lived a life of wealth and privilege, full of love and support. Her only insight into what it’s like to have a rough life is through her work with foster children. When she meets Beau, it starts as a challenge to get through to him but quickly turns into much more than either of them bargained for.
TOGETHER, they are mismatched, ill-fated, and COMBUSTIBLE. But when their connection is challenged by the collision of past, present, and future,
will they be snared by love… or circumstances?
Ever get so drawn in to a book that you start it in the evening, and next thing you know it’s 3 am, you’ve just finished it, and all you can think is that it is so worth the lack of sleep?? That’s how Snared is.
I was drawn in immediately, as we got a glimpse in to Beau’s heartbreaking past. If I could reach in to a nook and throttle a character, his mother definitely would have been it. Beau is a bit different from normal heroes. He doesn’t have the outgoing fun attitude most of them have, and it made me fall in love with him even more.
April is his perfect match. She brings out a side of him that is rarely seen, and cares for him, in spite of his dark side.
This story had me in tears most of the time. The journey that these 2 go on isn’t all chocolate and roses. The challenges they faced weren’t normal couple challenges, and for them to come out on the other side not just as a couple, but so happy, is amazing. There was a huge surprise thrown in there, and it made the book that much better.
I loved catching up with the other characters of the Jaded Regret series, and I can’t wait to see whose story we get next!!
This book is definitely a must read!!!
♫ Hartstrings (Jaded Regret, #3)
Tanner Hart, the All-American bad boy bass guitarist of Jaded Regret, has one motto— play women’s bodies like he does the strings of his guitar— hard, in tune, and giving it his all until the show is over. The only strings he wants attached to him are the ones he plays on the stage.
He has quite the reputation, even with his own band, and he likes it that way. It keeps the truth of who he really is locked deep inside. But there’s so much more to him than anyone really knows…
Now that he’s successful, he can afford to find out what really happened to the only girl who’s ever held his heart. The only thing is…will he really want to know the truth?
When Mackenzie ‘Mac’ Shepard finds herself in a situation she’s been in too many times before, she expects to do what she’s always done— cover it up, accept the apologies, and move on. She knows trying to get out is futile. What she doesn’t expect is for the world famous Tanner Hart to burst into her life like a knight in sexy armor.
When their lives collide and hearts get involved, can Tanner keep his hartstrings from being tangled up in his past, or can he make a new kind of music… with his heart?
