Love is ugly and secrets will destroy you.KAT
I don’t beg. I don’t cry. And I don’t give second chances. Ream, the lead guitarist from the band Tear Asunder, deserves a gold medal for best dick move ever when he ran the moment he discovered my secret after two days of hot sex. Then he brings some chick to my coming home party from the hospital—after being shot. I hate him. Until … Ream’s six foot two frame unfolds out of the car after being gone on tour for eight months. I stared, unable to help myself. And in my defense, any girl would stare. It would almost be rude not to because Ream was the type of guy who stood out. Not because he had pink hair or shouted or was obnoxious. No, it was because he was the complete opposite. Subtle and dangerously quiet. If he spoke, you’d better hope he liked you because otherwise you’d be falling at his feet begging for mercy.
Except me … I don’t beg—ever. But when our eyes locked, it was Ream’s confident cold indifference that had my nerves shooting off like jet sprinklers. Then… Ream told me he didn’t need a second chance because he was still working on his first.
Sex is ugly. It’s using someone for your own narcissistic pleasure. I did it and I hated it—until her. She was unfuckin expected. Then I had to wreck our beginning with my screwed up past. I don’t deserve her, but I’m selfish and I’m taking her anyway. This is who I am and it’s too late to change me.
This is the third book I've read in the series. The focus now shifts to Ream and Kat, two characters readers couldn't help but be curious about as their story begins in the background of those other two books. However, their story is still a bit confusing at the beginning of Overwhelmed By You. I had a lot of WTF moments and wondered if I should've re-read the other books since it had been so long. There wasn't much in the way of transitions but...
I couldn't help but fall into their story. These characters are intense, but not as lost as Logan and Emily. Ream and Kat are entangled in misunderstandings, half-truths, and a series of deceptions that worked against them to keep them apart. The best part (of any romance, really) is that their love and willingness to sacrifice for the other is what pulls them through their dark times. Readers can't deny that these two characters would do anything to keep the other safe.
Nashoda Rose has this way of sucker-punching you. Be prepared. Just when I thought the characters had gone through the ugly stuff and were coasting to their HEA, another plot twist comes along and can be felt in your gut. Then she still gave me a satisfying ending so I'll forgive the twist. What a story!
