But you would really be reading half a book and trying to figure out what went down with these two because so much of the genesis of their story lies in the first couple's book, plus there are many, many references made to relationships formed, people in the circle and the first couple, Kat and Ream's best friends. I'm not sure if it would be a good read or even feel like a complete book if not read after the first.(less)

Overwhelmed by you is definitely a perfect title for this book. I was extremely overwhelmed by the time I ended this book in a good way of course. I still feel like my chest hurts and trying to wrap my mind to what I read. The thing is Nashoda’s writing will do that to you. She will get you all excited and when

I can’t say enough about this series. It’s one that’s been on my Kindle for ages and I have no clue why I didn’t read these sooner. If you have them on your e-reader, you must read them NOW!

This was Ream and Kat’s story.

We know from the first book that these two hit it off brilliantly almost three years ago and then a misunderstanding tanked their chances instantly. From that point on they only had nasty things to say to one another despite the intense feelings they still

Anyone else think this was going to be your typical every day romance?? You know where the guy and the girl hook up, break up and one of them spends the rest of the book denying their feelings for the other one. Only to finally get their shit together in the end and get back together? Anyone?

Don't get me wrong....all of that happened plus a whole lot of crazy! That last 30%...damn, I'm exhausted.

For a few weeks Kat & Ream had something good, something better than good. A friendship, flirtation and eventually one amazing night. But that's were the good ended... and it all turned to shit. Unable to remain in the same room together without hurting each other, things aren't expected to change after he returns from the band's tour, but they do... slowly.

"Baby, I love you for you. And I love who I am with you."

Ream and Kat shared something special, friends who shared a night to remember, only for Ream to mess it up and run away. Two years, eight months later he's back in her world; the band is staying at the farm house while they record their newest album and while Ream seems like a changed man, Kat has moved on to someone safer and nice. All he needs to do is remind her just how good it is between them...

From the moment I met Kat and Ream in the first book of the series, I've been interested and highly anticipating their story. They seemed to have so much history already and I couldn't quite figure out what happened that would cause so much tension between them. The first book in this series, Torn from You, was one of my favorite "darker" reads of last year and once again Nashoda Rose delivers

Overwhelmed by You is the second book in the Tears Asunder series. This is Ream and Kat’s story. It’s painful and intense. It is also a story of two people who belong together. Ream gives Kat the strength she didn’t realize she needed and Kat gives Ream a chance at love. Something he knew little about.

When Ream and Kat end up spending time together something just clicks between them. A simple friendship begins but ends with the two of them sharing a few days of

Kat and Ream are introduced in the first book, they spend sometime together - friendship builds and then things heat up.

Ream and Kat had a night together that didnt end so well. Now back from the bands tour, Ream is determined to claim what is his.

Kat was your typical stubborn heroine spending half the book denying her feelings followed by being horny. Ream was the hot sexy tattooed rocker, trying to win her back and I really loved him at first but his possessiveness and "you're mine" got a bit repetitive.

Despite the weak heroine I was enjoying the story until the end. It wasnt as dark like book 1 but

Ream is a JERK. I hated the things he said to Kat, but i'm a sucker like that.. i knew this jerk had issues and only needed some TLC to show his sweeter side. And boy, was he sweet *swoon*

The second novel in the Tear Asunder series did not disappoint...not at all...


I just loved Kat from the previous novel, Torn from You and reading her story has only made me love her more. She is and wants to be independent and keep her secret hidden from everyone else but deep down she needs someone she can lean on. I'm not going to give any spoilers because it's not worth it and her personal story it's what makes this book so awesome.

I really like Ream and Kat in previous book. With him being a brooding guitarist

And her being strong and sassy

I like both of their background/past story. I was especially taken by Ream’s past. It was heartbreaking. And Kat’s sassiness was just a façade to cover up her fears.

The overall story was good. Some parts were predictable but it moved at a good pace and didn’t felt contrived.

Ream and Kat’s story was a universe of its own – a soul shattering and heart breaking journey that does lead you to hope…and that is enough for them
Never been more engaged with the characters’ fates as I was in this story – it started with…

”Anticipation was the tie to control.”

then it introduced me to a brooding rock star…

This story is about Kat and Ream. Due to special circumstances (which concerned Emily and Logan from book 1)
they had to spent 2 week together at a farm. In this time they got to know each other and became friends.
They were both worried about their friends but they also supported each other. Ream realized pretty fast that Kat wasn't like he expected her to be.

So after 2 weeks of just being friends there was a lot of

Hmmm.. I'm having mixed feelings about this one

Overwhelmed by You is about REAM & KAT's story.
Being apart for over 2 years after their brief and intense encounter REAM is ready to fight for KAT and get her back no matter what.

KAT doesn't make it easy for him. Being hurt by him once, she refuses to give him a second first

There were parts I really loved! Especially the parts involving REAM fighting for KAT and all the things he said and did during this
