Short but packed with emotion...

This book is the second I have read by this author and luckily for me I picked it up for free. I liked it more than the first story because the Hero, Adam is a decent guy. He doesn't act like a douchebag and comes across as a genuinely nice and sweet guy.

When we first get to know Katie she comes across as dark, angry and hiding herself behind black clothes, goth makeup and a bad attitude. In this story we find out her reasons and they are not nice.

Adam and Katie s

This was really good. An extremely well written story about the aftermath of physical and sexual abuse and a thoroughly romantic love story as well.
Though it was understandable my only criticism is that the story focused almost exclusively on the heroine's back story whilst the hero's was glossed over to a large extent. Due to the story's subject matter this wasn't unexpected but none the less I would have liked to know more about him. For example is he close to his family he seems to like and

Just wow. I was skeptical about this book after book one fell flat but this book was so much better than I had hoped. Adam and Katie won me over. I knew there was a vicious back story on Katie but never knew it would have been that telling. Katie comes across as such a bitch to Adam and now that he’s tasked with helping her, he gets to know her better than anyone else. Adam is so patient and kind with Katie.

I like that although this is Adam and Katie’s story you still get a glimpse of Nick and
4.5 stars

Surprised at how much I enjoyed this book. It was a quick and easy read with a extremely sweet alpha.

My only wish is that I would have read book 1 of the series first as the H & h meet in that book and also there is a lot referring to the previous couple from book 1.

Overall a great story that left wanting to read more by this author.

Note this book does deal with some heavy issues (view spoiler)

My favorite so far! Love Adam and want him for myself ;)
Really liked it

4 1/2 stars. I really liked this one. It pulled me in a different direction emotionally than I expected. We first meet this couple in the previous book for this series that pretty much concludes that they do not like each other. Given that I already knew there was going to be major tension, I did like the way the relationship progresses--the circumstances made it seem more probable to me. I loved the way the h handled being confronted with her past, given the sensitivity of the su

This is another of MJ’s book that deals with a sensitive issue, and it’s done so well. I love the enemies to loves trope, watching their relationship evolve from wanting to rip each other’s heads off to being totally 100% gaga for each other. I also love that we get both POV’s so can experience this with them.

4.5 stars

4 -4.5 stars

Yet again another good read from MJ. This one is Adam and Katie who didn’t really get along in book one. When Katie needs him Adam totally steps up and I loved him, he was a real gentle giant. Katie has had a terrible childhood and she has to deal with some major issues from her past but Adam was with her every step of the way.

Great random Wednesday read

Good book. Very emotional. I love the connection to photography. I wish we heard more about the couple in the first book but this book was about the struggles and I think it will help people in the same situation.

This book was a fast read and it melted my heart with the tragedy that took place years ago but still shows signs of pain well into the future.
