I usually would have given this 2 stars as it wasn't so completely horrible that I despised it totally (okay, thats a lie it was actually shit.) but all this stuff happened over the period of a week - so unrealistic and such utter unequivocal levels of bullshit I found myself skimming. There were consistency issues, some typos and a few parts were hard to follow. It was a novelette, there's a cliffhanger where you wonder which of 3 people has been shot - all 3 are unconscious at the end so we do ...more

Release is this week coming so I am NOT giving too much away pre-release but holy s$#@!!!!!!
If you have read any TH Snyder before you know this is a whole new ballgame here. I absolutely got sucked in on page one and loved the story from there forward. The man whorishness of Linc and especially Dault made me want to bang their heads together but the lessons each guy learns about who they are and what they want....loved that. Linc comes to find two women very necessary for his growth and healing

Cursed Love….a love the Linc Minzotto knew from both sides. An event in his childhood left his traumatized and scared. He wasn’t prepared to give himself to anyone; he was very guarded. He didn’t talk about his past. The only one that really knew everything about him was his best friend; Dault. Opening up to others wasn’t in the cards for Linc and that is what he needed to do to heal his heart and also the people around him.

Probably one of the worst poorly written books I have read.

3 stars!
Spoiler free review.

This was a short and quick read.
I finished it in one sitting.
Still...I wasn't thrilled with it!
I had a feeling that author has rushed to end,
and forget to write some major parts that was missing in book.
I just didnt connect with any of the characters.
Didn't feel the connection between the 4 main characters Linc,Jo,Dault,Etty...
All in all solid 3 stars!

This book was okay for me but it also confused me a lot. There 3 PoV: Linc, Jo and Etty which made it interesting. But for me the plot was air tight and the characters weren't in depth enough. I like a particular standard of writing and this unfortunately didn't appeal to me. Please note that this is my personal opinion and in no way whatsoever can it be taken into account of you wanting to read this book. We are all different and all have different tastes. So please enjoy the book. ...more

I think this book has the making of a good book but the writing is choppy and I just didnt connect with any of the characters. Linc and Daulton are suppose to be best friends but never in the entire story do I feel that way. The ending was a cliffhanger and was the best part to the end of the first book. I wish I would have enjoyed the rest.

T.H. Snyder is a great writer I recommend her to anyone looking for a hot read! I fell instantly for Linc, mmmmm one hawt ticket is what I would call him! Got to love a tattoo artist! Once you read the first in this series you will want to read them all.

It's to be said, that I love every book of T.H.Snyder's. She's a fabulous author and makes you love and hate her characters at times. This book is no different. You will love the characters and be blown away with the ending.

This book like T.H.'s others are told in dual POV's. You will see Linc, Etty and Jo's POV. You will fall in love with them and the heartache each of them endure.

Linc is from a wealthy family, one that never showed him love. He has Dalton his best friend and business partner

Hot tattooed guys? Check. Pasts that destroy you? Check. Relationship problems? Check. Suspense? Check. Cursed Love has it all!

I’ve been waiting forever it seems for this book to be released, and as soon as it came out I made sure to grab it! Cursed Love is different than t.h. snyder’s other books. It’s very edgy, rough, and very erotic at times.

Cursed Love is Linc’s story. As the book begins we see glimpses of his life growing up, as well as the tragedy he went through. Linc and Daulton are bes

Cursed Love is by far one of the most wonderful books you’ll read this year. T.H. Snyder’s writing just keeps getting better and better. I love following her journey through her books. I fall in love with each one a little more than the last one I’ve read.

I absolutely adored Linc. He is an amazing man that will capture your heart. I felt horrible for him because of what he and Dault dealt with as kids. No child should have to go through that. It broke my heart through the book that he didn’t bel

Cursed Love is the beginning of more to come. I was not totally liking Linc in the beginning of the book. His best friend Daulton, I liked right away with his laid back personality. Both men, as young boys, experienced a horrific ordeal and together their bond has been tight and they were able to move on.

Linc by getting away from where he grew up, with Daulton, was able to follow his dreams. He began working for a Tattoo business and was able to learn the trade from an experienced mentor. He the

Is the first book of the series and I have to say I fell so completely in love with this book, that reading the whole series became a must. T. h. Snyder is a great story teller. As you read this book you feel you are there with Linc and Dault living their lives journey. Two men marked by fate, by decisions made as young boys, decide to take that fate in their own hands and head out from the town that torments them with bad memories of that ill fated day.

I fell in love with Linc in this book! Still disturbed by his past of what happened once a long time ago he keeps it all to himself. Never really moving on.

im afraid to put to much into this review i do not want to give anything away!
i Love Linc with Jo yes it took some time for it to happen and for him to kinda lose her to realize it along with becoming great friends with Etty to make him realize he is in love with Jo.

Linc made a decision when he was nine that would forever haunt him. His childhood was less than ideal, his parent didn't really care about him and one wrong move forever changed his life. He is forever haunted by that fateful night. Linc doesn't know how to love anyone and doesn't want to learn or so he thinks, another decision made will turn his world upside down.

Daulton is Linc's best friend. They share a bond that no one understands. Dault is only looking to get laid nothing more he has every

I love this book!
From Page 1, I was completely enthralled. I found that I was reading super fast just to see what was going to happen next.
T.H. Snyder has the unique ability to weave the past and the present in Cursed Love and do it in such a way that it just flows seamlessly.
Linc is DAMAGED. He has demons and I just wanted to give him a hug. He's this tattooed, bad boy hiding his demons and trying to protect himself.
Jo is REAL. She's me. She's you. She's every woman who loves a man and wants

I was fortunate enough to be gifted a copy from the Author.
T.H Snyder's work is simply, beautiful. She has a way of writing a story that makes you fall in love with the characters.
Cursed Love is different to her other books, it's sits quite nicely on the edge of erotica and dangles its feet into a genre that Ms. Snyder hasn't written before.
I enjoyed the fact that this book is 3 persons POV, that all the characters have flaws and aren't 'perfect', and the engaging dynamic between them all.

Oh. My. God. I loved, loved, LOVED, this book! There is intrigue, hunky tatted botties, steamy sex, and the mother of all endings, all rolled up to make this a 'must have' book.

Linc, whose disastrous decision made as a child changed his life forever, is a tortured soul. Daulton, is Linc's best friend - shit, really his brother. They've been friends forever - and yes, Daulton (who has his OWN demons) is part of Linc's mysterious and tortured past. Jo and Gretchen are the women in their lives - o

I am giving this book 4 strong stars I took one away lol cause um The ending was just confusing.
But really the difference in this book and alot of others that I loved was that its more about friendship. And learning to trust and fight your demons. Because lets face it everyone has them but its how you handle them. In this you find that he meets someone that he grows so attached to and feels he would do anything to protect her. Even go against his best friend. And she in return feels the same ab

Linc and Daulton suffer a horrible childhood. They try and move on in their own ways. The two friends stay together through it all. Thick as thieves. And...
Holy bowl full of hotness! These men are HOT. They live their lives how they want. They can have who they want and they typically do. They don't really know what love is even when it slaps them in the face.

I couldn't finish the book. I thought it was a story about Linc but then it seemed to turn into a story about Etty. These two gave me motion sickness the way they sway back and forth. Jo leaves and within hours he questioning did he love her and how will he ever go on without. The same day he meets Etty and finds in her a trusted friendship. It's been a DAY! Within a week Linc is spouting about how much he cannot live without Jo...but his connection with Etty makes him miss her less and less as ...more

I was gifted a copy of the book in return for an honest review from the author.

Cursed Love was amazing, it told the story of a man who has dealt with some rough things in his life from his childhood and he keeps a strong shield around himself.

This story has multiple POV and they are easy to follow along with.

Cursed love is about Linc and his story is pretty rough, in the beginning you learn about him as a boy. This will help you really understand his story.

You also meet Jo, Daulton and Etty.

In the end, I'd say I did end up enjoying the book. The story took a while to ramp up and in some areas the plot was too simple. This definitely feels like a book that was meant to be a series opener with more to come. The characters were introduced and the book ends with a cliffhanger. And two additional alternate endings??? Ummm... maybe there should have been a total of three POVs instead?

One last note..I thought Etty' s reaction to Dalut' s was a little over the top. What he said was the tr

What a great read. I have read several books but this author before but she really surprised me with this one. It's not the typical girl meets boy story line at all plus we get three POV's.

This book was everything I had been waiting for. T.H. Snyder never disappoints, and this book proves she is at the top of her game. The book is told in first person and you get to see Linc, Jo, and Etty deal with each other and their feelings. Linc is running from his past. Jo only wants to help, and Etty turns into his lifeline. The ending was something I had never seen before and was a major cliff hanger, leaving you wanting more.
