4/5 TEAR MY HEART OUT Sizzling Stars

5/5 Sizzling Hearts for Heat!!

I've had time to really absorb my feelings on this book. This book had me enthralled and in love with the characters the whole time. I was upset when I initially finished it. I can't tell you why because I'd ruin it for you. Part of me wants to scream at the roof tops. I want to freaking yell. But I'll let you decide. Tricia Daniels is the most humble

WOW, MY EMOTIONS ARE ALL OVER THE PLACE!! In a good way, that is. ;)

Intractable Souls had a very original and solid story line and plot that kept me wanting more. The characters engaged me and the pacing kept me interested.

I liked how the author concocts everything based on a solid foundation rather than characters just rushing into things or literally giving into the moment. Both characters have pasts that could make them or break them but feel such a compulsion for one another that they can’t

... What in the name of God just happened to me? This book has put me through some of the most powerful emotions that I've felt in a really long time. I laughed, I smiled, I got upset and wanted to throw my eReader through a window, I felt like my heart was broken, and I felt immense happiness. ALL AT THE SAME TIME!

I'm the kind of reader who won't give 5 stars to any novel unless it fully captures my interest from page one. The only other story I've given five stars to is Jane Austen's 'Pride a

10 STARS!!!!!!Oh my goodness I love this book!!! I was hooked from the beginning and couldn’t put it down until the last word. Ethan is an Irish hunk that is very desirable, but struggles with his temper. Olivia is a woman with a battered and bruised heart, not sure if she can open it back up to someone new, no matter how desirable he is. This book was full of emotion and drove me insane. I wanted to scream at Ethan and Olivia and throw my e-reader across the room. They had moments of pure love ...more

Is it possible to have a love/hate relationship with nearly ALL the characters in a single book? Cause, I swear I kept going from loving the characters to absolutely hating them! Oh where should I start.......

Ethan ~ Now him I actually had a total LOVE relationship for throughout the whole book, he was one of the few! From the get go you can tell he's very commanding and so sure of himself, well in till he meets Olivia. He sets his sights on her and it's like his world tips on its axis. He just

Olivia James knows she needs to get back in the dating game but, her ex did a number on her. It was so bad she almost bled to death on her bed. It’s been three years and she’s still struggling to get past it. There is nothing in her wanting to trust a man again. But she has needs, like most of us and can only think of one man that can help with that. Her friend Noah. He agrees and they make a date. Sadly he cancels on her saying he’s stuck at work. What’s even worse…she sees him at his house…wit ...more

Oh my word! I don’t know what to say…Ethan J. O’Connell is the epitome of book boyfriends. I love a hot head and an Irish accent. Really pulls you into the story with the tension between the characters. The plot and story is phenomenal and it also helps that the author Tricia Daniels has an amazing character to match her amazing book.

I don't normally add comments about a book I've read but this book was incredible!!! This is truly one of the best books I've read. The storyline was different than the usual love stories which kept my attention and makes it exciting what is going to happen next. I hate being left hanging (in a good way) and it will drive me crazy until the next book comes out so I can see what happens with Ethan and Olivia. There was so much more to this book than just dialogue and sex, it's a real story that y ...more

This is a very long but VERY GOOD book...Really if the author doesn't hurry with the second one, I'm going to go crazy as hell! At every turn there is conflict that leaves you at the border of the seat. This is not like other books that gives you one problem and then it's taken care of at the end. NOOOOO this is trouble all around and you really just want to grab the characters by the shoulders and shake them and slap them because they are so good together but they are so stuborn!!

Totally loved this book. Intractable Souls is about two people Ethan and Olivia who know deep in their hearts that they were meant to be together but lives, trust, and tragedy are keeping them apart. Ethan has a past that could destroy what he has with Olivia and he doesn't want to risk that no matter what, but can Olivia's past destroy them in the process? No matter what they know they can't stay away from one another insert an old lady who tries to drive them nuts. LOL Intractable Souls will m ...more

What the crap!!! I was reading and thought my kindle lost some pages! Yes it's that good, but Olivia gets on my nerves she's so confused and makes you want to slap her and what's with the old lady... Ethan.. What can I say I feel sorry for the poor guy! One thing I liked about the book most is you actually got a piece of each character!

I was lucky enough to get the chance to read "Intractable Souls" by Tricia Daniels. This book kept me on my toes, made me cry, made me laugh, and at the end, made me want to scream.

The main characters in this book are Ethan O'Connell and Olivia James. From the start of the book you understand that their souls have been connected throughout time. If you believe that everyone has one true soulmate (or even if you don't), then this book is proof that there is one soulmate for everyone out there.

Fuck me!! I did not see that ending coming!!
Jesus this book...this book was so fucking good.
I was introduced to Tricia Daniels (virtually/metaphorically...I haven't actually spoken with her online or in real life) through her feud (all in good fun) with Ren Alexander (Chasing the Wild Sparks) on Facebook.
I read and loved Ren's books so I decided that to really be fair in participating in said feud that I should probably read her book too.
So glad I did.

Intractable Souls by Tricia Daniels is a fast paced, emotionally taxing, and incredible read, with one of the most jaw dropping endings I’ve read this year! I thought something was wrong with my Kindle, but nope – the story was just over and I literally yelled, “Where’s the rest of it?” Tricia Daniels ‘Bound for Ireland’ series is off to an incredible start!

From the first chapter where we meet Owen and Elizabeth until the last page where we really are rooting for Ethan and Olivia I was captivated by their interchanging stories.

Ethan is a hot Irish Alpha male who is used to getting things his way. He has a bit of trouble in his homeland so he is handling business in Canada where he meets Olivia. Olivia is still recovering from a bad relationship in her past and is reluctant to allow

This book was so down to earth with characters so real you felt you knew them !

Olivia is a damaged girl, yes it's a common theme I admit, but this book does it really well. Ethan is an Irish sex god with friends that look like they all model for GQ :). Okay that not realistic but it's fiction we can dream!

Ethan is rich but his not the big CEO and his quite grounded and lovely but he has an Irish temper to match his sexy Irish accent.

Ethan pursues Olivia and it's a great story, I

4.3 Star Review - Intractable Souls

I recommend this book.

I enjoyed this story for many reasons. Love the push and pull between the both of them. Have to say I wanted to smack both Scott and Noah for different reasons. They both deserved a least one smack each if not more.

Chemistry is strong between them. I love the snarly comebacks from the both of them. They keep you laughing throughout the story.

Olivia James is afraid of men with tempers because of an issue in her past. If men get angry arou

I so enjoyed Intractable Souls.
I was not really sure what I was getting into with the book, but I was very pleasantly surprised.
This book will involve you. It takes a very talented author to invoke real emotion and I felt that while reading this book.
There were times I wanted to scream and times I wanted to cry, but I also deeply felt the emotion and love within the pages.
Olivia is a very real woman with very real fears and insecurities. There are times when I wanted to reach into the book a

Let me start by saying that Tricia Daniels is a phenomenal author. The main character, Olivia, has suffered horribly from her last relationship and is afraid to "get back in the game." She ends up meeting Ethan, an extremely hot and wealthy Irish businessman who is her best friend's (Rachel), husband's (Scott) boss and things immediately turn intense. Ethan has a very Irish short temper, and passion beyond a woman's dreams, but also likes to control. Can she survive it and let go of her past bag ...more

Review: From the first sentence I was hooked by these endearing yet complicated characters. I loved how tough & stubborn Olivia was, how dominate yet lovable Ethan was. Rachel was hilarious, loyal & an ideal friend. Noah was a jerk & pompous ass but I did have moments of affection for him. The story was an easy fun read with a nice plot, interesting dialog & relatable characters. There were times that I wanted to cry & a number of others that made me laugh out loud. Though I ...more

I don't even know where to start! The relationship that Olivia & Ethan have is indescribable! All the signs are there indicating they are meant to be as soul mates. Ethan seems to draw the attentions of females all around but can only see Olivia while Olivia has demons that keep her tied to the past that continually haunts her possibly preventing her own happy ending. This books draws out every emotion in a reader. This book will make you cry, laugh, fall in love with the characters, makes y ...more

This book was awesome. The story was thrilling and twisted and very emotional. The characters had felt so real though out the book. Their twisted and heartbreaking beautiful story was something unknown. Although I can't believe the ending of this book with the cliffhanger. Thanks for writing an excellent book.

I absolutely fell in love with this book. It has everything you could ever want a book to have, from the story line, to the plot twists, the characters and a hint of mystery mixed in together. I actually wanted to cry when this book finished – you’ll see why when you read the book. I think I almost broke my iPad trying to find an extra page that wasn’t there.

I received a copy of this story for an honest review for Paranormal Romance and Authors that Rock!

Olivia James is broken. A series of bad relationships and one horrible incident have left her a shell of her former self. Olivia’s sworn off relationships and men in general but her best friend Rachel has other plans. Plans that come in a recently relocated handsome Irish package.

Ethan O’Connell is trying to put his playboy past and a career-threatening scandal behind him. After mo
