Well I do have to say that I was surprised with this little gem.  When I first started reading it – I was thinking it wouldn’t be able to top the first book in the series and it was just going to consist of Jennifer and Finnley broadening their re

Let’s set the scene…..

'you're fired'

So within the first couple of pages there is Jesse standing there with that smirk on her face and I was instantly drawn right back into Jennifer's world. I opened the door with Jennifer on page two and it was also instant, Iwanted to smack that grin right off Jesse's face too. The next minute I'm questioning Finnleys actions, there’s doubt creeping in and Jennifer and indeed me

I was a huge fan of the first book in this series, Weak For Him, so when the opportunity came around to read the second one, I was all over that! Unfortunately, this book falls short of the entertainment and complexity of the first book.

Weak Without Him picks up right where the last book leaves off, with Jennifer being fired from The Elite for essentially breech of contract because she is no longer a virgin. For the sake of not wanting to spoil any of the plot, let’s just say that there are ult

5- Absolutely breathtaking, exciting, and never a dull moment. LOVED IT!

Move out Fifty Shades of Grey hello Weakness Trilogy.
I can't tell you how much I love this trilogy. Lyra Parish is amazing.
And here I thought that Weak For Him was amazing but Weak Without Him is mind-blowing a total mind f**k.
Honestly I fell hard for both Finnley and Luketon than when i decided I loved both, I had my mind blown. This book is a total roller coaster.

I originally fell in love with Lyra Parish when I read Weak for Him and she has made me fall a little bit harder! I absolutely LOVED Weak Without Him. From the moment I started Weak Without Him I was hooked and didn’t put it down until the very last page. WWH took me on a crazy emotional roller coaster ride and I loved every minute of it.

Ooooh Finn; you made me swoon, laugh, giggle, and day-dream all at ones. I love his character and in Weak Without Him we got to know him a bit more –not only through Jenn’s pov but also through his. YES, WWH is written in dual pov and I freaking loved it. But also his brother Luke gave some sweet details about Finn away ;) He’s a man with many faces, which I love every single one of them.

Jenn and Finn’s growing relationship was joy to read; I loved their back and forth; their snarky remarks; ch

I will also apologize how all over the place this review is, but that’s kind of how the book left me when I was finished.

I will start off by saying; I really HATED Finnley in the first book. Even though he is sexy as sin, he absolutely pissed me off; and if he was real, I’d probably kick him in the balls. But after reading this book, he has definitely grown on me.

I really liked how in this book, you got to see through Finnley’s eyes. I think

3.5 out of 5 Stars

Jennifer Downs never thought that she would end up in the bed of her boss, the same that made it his business to sell young women's virginity, included hers. However, there is something about Finnley Felton one cannot turn away from, and it makes her strong enough to brave her enemies and although unintentionally, to disappoint those who believed they had a future with her.

However, the happy end is not yet in sight and betrayal soon rears its ugly head with only one thing in ni

I have patiently been waiting for the release of this book and let me tell you, Lyra didn't disappoint at all. This book picks up where Weak For Him left off, where Finn fired Jennifer after FINALLY getting together. I couldn't wait to see their relationship develop and for Jennifer to break down Finn's walls so he could love again.

What I didn't expect, was all the twists and turn that were thrown in. Relationships aren't easy to begin with. When you add the fact that Finn is CEO of the Elite (s

I must say this book didn't go the way I thought it would. Jennifer was fired by Finley but that didn't put a damper on their romance. Though somehow between the firing and getting kicked out of the mansion she moved in with him without any idea what that meant until she got there. After a day out with him she realizes that he isn't the man she thought he was and decides to find a place of her own. Things between her and Luke are still tense as feelings are still raw but she can't deny her feeli ...more

I received this book from the author Lyra Parish in exchange for an honest review. Like the first book in this series Weak for Him, I absolutely loved Weak Without Him! It had everything I love plus some. It had love, angst, shock and awe. I loved that it actually made me feel things like anger towards the characters so much that I wanted to reach in the book and slap them. Lol I thought that WWH was very well rounded and written. I can't think of anything bad to say about it and that's always g ...more

After giving her virginity to Finnley Felton, Jennifer Downs received her pink slip from Elite. When he told her she was fired, she thought he was kidding. Well, apparently not. Much to her surprise the bearer of the official news was Jessica, the bitch, with a wicked grin on her face, that said "you are fired now fuck off." Losing her job, meant losing her home as well. No longer an Elite girl, meant no longer living with them. Or Finn. Finnley was happy to fire Jennifer. She was his and he wou ...more

I'd loved book one so was really looking forward to this book. It started out well, lots of sass and sarcasm, each trying to prove they were in control. Jennifer is so bloody stubborn there were times I wanted to slap her, yet others where I applauded her decisions. I was about half way through wondering where the story was going to go when wham! Never saw that coming... And for the rest of the book I was left shocked, doubting, double guessing, disbelieving even.

Absolutely brilliant book, I hon

Mixed feelings for this one. I was really pissed at Jennifer because she was always running away instead of trying to work things out with Finnley. That frustration was forgotten when things got really bad and I only remembered it later when I was writing the review. Finnley and Jennifer have a very powerful enemy who has some really strong motives and won't hesitate to do anything.

To say that Jennifer's future wasn't looking good is an understatement. Their enemy is crazy and powerful which is

Amazing, A-MA-Z-I-N-G follow-up.

Weak Without Him took a very interesting turn and totally a good one. I really wasn’t expecting anything quite like this. It kept me up all night. I got so involved in the characters and invested in the story that I simply couldn’t put it down.

This series has everything you could possibly ask for. Hot sex, amazing characters, drama, angst, twists and turns and original plot.

I couldn't put this book down... Even when I had to I was thinking about it.. The story of Jennifer and Finley continues right where book 1 ended, Finley and Jen had consummated their relationship and now what do they do... Well drastic times call for drastic measures, the ball is set in place and though finely thinks he's doing the right thing by keeping their relationship a secret we soon find out that it's not the case.

I found myself kidnapped by Lyra Parish's Weak Without Him, I could not escape until the last work and even then my thoughts were seized by realization that there is one more book to this amazing love story.

Lyra Parish gives the reader these wonderfully human characters that have pasts they struggle with, flaws and doubts. Who have this electric chemistry that sets off sizzling hot sex to full blow out confrontations. While reading their story you're sometimes frustrated, sometimes smiling, you

Everyone of their scenes together are scorching hot. As I read the book there was not one emotion that I didn't feel for this couple.

Weak Without Him is the second book in the Weakness series. It is not a stand alone. you must read Weak For Him first. Weak Without Him starts where Weak For Him left off. It is a great second book.

I loved the first book so of course this one hooked me right from the beginning.

At some points I was annoyed with some of the actions of the characters. There where time I was like seriously did that just happen. There are a few shocking twists that I never expected. In the end Lyra pulled it all to

The reason I thought this book was even better than book one is because I felt that Ms Parish had settled into the storytelling. She had found her style and she had planned the story out.

It is a good book because just when you think there's a resolution BAM there's a huge curve ball thrown in and it throws you off your seat! I never for a second worked out that was going to happen! I like books that keep me guessing and this certainly did that.

I just received this book as a birthday gift but I would have purchased it. This is the second book of the series. I absolutely love it, in this book there are still tons of insecurities between the the both of them (Finnley & Jennifer). He knows what love this but with Jennifer its different. She doesn't know what love is but knows that she cant live without him. In this one there love, hatred, & betrayal. There is so much more. I would recommend this book and the series.... ...more

I was shocked about one person who was involved with messing with Jennifer. I am glad about the ending. ...more

Wow how much things change. Jennifer and Finn have to go thru so much stuff in order to be together and wow this one was big. Lets just say that that crazy bitch who hates her is set on revenge. But things get better the next book is gonna be great cant wait.
