Even if he’s relationship with Emma was going great, Bass Cole still had a long way to go to make amends after the grief he’d caused Emma last year. No matter what the future held for them, he knew one thing—Emma owned his hea

AAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!!! The angst and despair in this book about killed me! I love Emma and Bass and that's probably why this book got to me so much. I just want them to have their HEA!

The entire world is against them in this book. It's not just them making mistakes this time. It's Nikki, the media, having a long distance relationship...

Emma totally loses her shit in this book. She's not even acting like the same person, but there is a reason for this. Stick with it and it will be explained.

I loved Pamela's previous books , but I don't know , this one didn't meet the mark . Shock value and lots of hurt has always been the key factor in the Torn series . The entire book was literally based on both the leads' insecurities , jealousies and inability to face a situation .The book seemed as if the author just wrote a string of bad experiences for angst .


At one point I didn't even feel anything , absolutely nothing .
None of the feelings were described properly . I mean one moment Em

WHAT THE HELL DID I JUST READ? (p.s, spoilers ahead).
I originally gave this shit 3 stars but it doesn't even deserve that, it deserves 2.5, but since there is no 2.5 I'm giving it a 2.

I'm so let down with this book I CANNOT EVEN.

So the first two books of this series were lovely. Emma dumps Carter, meets Bass, gets back with Carter, Carter cheats on her, Emma dumps Carter, Emma ends up with Bass again, yada yada yada everyone already knows all of this ok.

So anyway,

I loved the other two books. I l

In all honesty, this was a 2.5 for me. However, I am a fan of Pamela Ann and upped my rating because of my faith in her writing.

It was an enjoyable read up until 3/4 of the book and then I just got frustrated. I felt like I was experiencing whiplash as my mind was being whipped back and forth between characters and their actions.

So many things that took place in the last quarter of the book were unbelievable and annoying.

Pamela Ann you killed me again. The angst, oh my God. I didnt know what to do with myself and just kept praying that i got the HEA that i wanted. Thank you for granting my wish! I won't spoil it for anyone else that hasnt read this yet. My only complaint is that this book felt too short and slightly unfinished. I loved the ending, but it felt too quick. After all that angst i needed to feel like this was truly the closure and happiness that was needed. Emma went through hell and back, some of it ...more

I'm totally disappointed with this last book in the series.
I'm hoping for great plot considering I'm waiting for months.
All I've got is a tantrum here and there between Bass and Emma.
It's exhausting!

I have loved every other book in this series. This book, I very much did not like. It didnt seem like the same characters. I want to know how she changed the book, since thats the reason for the delayed release.

I've waited for this and was beyond crazy when I finally got to hit my one click button. Bass and carter were always on my mind. Wondering who would win Emma in the end. I don't think I have ever been so confused over two men in my life. You get so consumed in each of their feelings it gets so hard to want just one. One minute you are all about carter then bass, then carter, then bass. It's crazy but I think I had my mind made up I was going to stick with team bass. I know carter loves her but h ...more

3.5-4 stars.

As far as I know, there are two key chapters missing from the published version which has yet to be fixed as I write this review. One chapter, in particular, is crucial. But I'm going to write my review anyway since I don't believe it will in any way impact the ending of this series nor my views on this book.

I've read all of Pamela Ann's books. She's a guilty pleasure as I've said over and over again. Her books are the Harlequin Romance types. Not very original. Not earth-shatterin

Fixated on You is the conclusion to Emma’s story. Who is Emma’s soul mate? The gorgeous, sexy, A list actor, Bass Cole or the equally as gorgeous and sexy soccer player, and her first love, Carter Mason?

“You see, my heart had led me to loving two men. As much as I wanted to keep both, I had to choose one, the one I couldn’t live without.”

Fixated on You took me on another emotional rollercoaster. Nothing seems to come easy for Bass & Emma. Just when it looked like they were going to get their

Yeah so I am impatient and bought the book instead of wait for my copy from the author but it was so worth it. This will be a straight forward review. No synopsis because I know I have been telling you about this book for a bit now.


First things first I need to invest in a better cover/case for my iPad because it does not handle being thrown on the floor as well as I would have thought. Bass and Emma's story has so many twists and turns I was looking for Dramamine just to fini
Nov 18, 2013 Aimee rated it liked it
First of all I want to say how much in love I am with Bass Cole. :) with that being said...I felt terrible for Carter in this book too. I wanted to bitch slap Emma at about the half way part. All of these darn books just keep getting drug further out because no one can talk to each other. Then that leaves us, the fans, hanging at the end of the book waiting for the next one. I felt like I was all hyped up for this book because I wanted to see what happens to Bass and Emma.

I'm happy/disappointed

Finished Fixated on You. I loved so much of it. I loved falling in love with characters all over. Sadly however the ending for me wasn't enough. I feel like their story is unfinished and I want to read more of them ( those who have read know who I mean) I feel like with all the angst that was involved they deserved more closure or a couple chapter epilogue. Just to watch them fall back together and begin again. Pamela Ann Author your writing is without a doubt some of the best I have ever read a ...more

I am glad Emma got her HEA, but really the book left me wanting. The first half was going really well but then just puttered out. I also want to say that I kind of fell out of love with Bass, instead of manning up when he knew he needed to he allowed Nikki to invade his relationship with Emma. How did Bass really think this would affect Emma, cause most men I know would have waited to know if the baby was his before going doing those things with Nikki. Through out all the Emma books I have roote ...more

It was good ,I did enjoy however I.did feel that the storyline was rushed and had too much drama and not enough explanation of the story in any great depth about Bass's family suing him or really much about Nikki, too many loose ends that weren't explained. on saying that it was a real page turner. I was disappointed when the end was only 77% on my kindle. Ending on a good note I would not hesitate to recommend any of Pamela Ann's books . I look forward to her next release and will continue to b ...more

Ahhh....where to start with this book.

This the continuation of Emma, Bass, and Carter Mason.

Emma and Bass try to make at go at it again, but with an upcoming baby, busy schedule, Emma's schedule and school, they try to do what they can to see one another.

The love Bass has for Emma is amazing. He's every dream come true. Even Carter has transformed into a wonderful man, if only Emma could make up her freaking mind.

When trouble is in paradise Emma is constantly going back and forth between Carter

Let me start off by saying I have loved this series from the start. I am a angst junkie!! We all want to see who Emma will finally pick...Bass or Carter. I am team BC all the way. But Carter did win me over in this book. He was always there for Emma, no matter how many fucked up things she does!!

The book started off a bit slow for me. But in true Pamela Ann fashion it got wild and crazy! Emma is one freaky chic and I think that is why I like her. She gets down and dirty with Bass and its HOT!!!
Nov 16, 2013 Genevieve rated it liked it
Happy with the ending but it would I agree with other reviews that it was rushed and lacked passion. I would have like to see them build up the relationship more rather then just have one convo and that was it. Emma lost herself in this book and I get that but it would have been nice to see her grow back to the secure person she used to be. Bass lost himself as we'll but there was not much insight to his struggles other then mentioning his parents, Nikki and stuff here and there. The possibility ...more

Gah!!!! What a ridiculously fabulous way to end this series! I will admit I was holding my breath at times. I inwardly begged and colorfully cursed Pamela throughout this book and series to please, please, please let my Bass and Emma have their HEA. Yes, I to am a BassWhore;) Proud of it too! Fixated on You is an epic roller-coaster of our strongest human emotions. Grief, envy, jealously, loathing, passion, angst and finally love. Pamela Ann did not disappoint.

Well.. I have to agree with some of the reviews about Emma in this book *SPOILER* she was beyond annoying. . What happened to her? I mean how could she not see nor believe in the love from Bass? I understand the frustration of Nikki but come on! It was obvious to everyone how much Bass loved her but just not to her? I was definitely disappointed in this book and how the storyline went. I kept thinking didn't we have enough drama in Blasphemous that we didn't need to go down that road -again. ..

I don't know where to begin! Pamela have brought me to tears, given me an ache in the pit of my stomach as well as my heart and given me great joy, all within the few hours it has taken me to read this book. I literally screamed, slammed things around on my desk and felt high levels of anxiety! You are an amazing author! You were able to suck me into this series and feel actual feelings for your characters. I am totally invested in them. I waited patienly for the release of this book ...more
