Tragic Desires by A.M. Hargrove

A.M. Hargrove has yet again written another outstanding novel. Her writing is what I would say is outstanding! In my opinion A.M. Hargrove's writing is only getting better with each new book she publishes. The characters in this story are well written, plot is fast paced and filled with an intriguing story line. Tragic Desires is one of those books that you cannot stop reading, even though you have to work in the morning the story is too compelling to stop. I

I was all over this book like a fat kid and cake. Excuse the cliché but this book was everything I Love in a book and more. I wont lie and say I wasnt scared to read it. Not because of the subject matter, cover or author, nothing to that effect. In fact my fear of reading this book stems from having met A.M. Hargrove this past summer. She was one of the nicest and sweetest authors Ive met. Once she found out I was a blogger she wouldnt stop signing bookmarks and postcards and more and

I stopped reading this book at the mark 49%.

Tragic Desires was an interesting read when I started it. I had so much hope that it will be brilliant, sadly when few issues were revealed, it totally put me off.
Even worse, I couldn't see any connection between them. Drex and Gemimi were both nice kick arse characters to read thou.

Please keep in mind that it is a themed series of stand-a-lone novels.

Yet fills the bill of "Tragic Love Stories"... thus it has been dubbed the second installment of the Tragic Series.

Increasing better than it's predecessor ~~ laud is that even the right word?? ~~. Can't wait for another Tragic Love Story!

When after a biking accident she is left with daily migraines that cannot be controlled, her boyfriend leaves and she slowly slips into an alcohol and medication fuelled haze.

If youve read Tragically Flawed, you may remember Drexel. If not, you wont forget him after reading Tragic Desires.

Gemini ignores her boyfriends concerns and takes her mountain bike on the trails alone. The water softened path gives way and sends her tumbling down the hill. She survives, but her concussion leaves her with headaches that are so severe, she can no longer function and she turns to alcohol and pills to get through each day. After her boyfriend breaks up with her she has no reason

Tragic Desire is the second in the Tragic series and is a complete standalone novel. I must admit its been a while since I have reviewed a contemporary novel with a romantic suspense twist and was looking forward to read this. I had high hopes since I tend to read more YA/NA for review now and I must admit this book drew me in from its blurb. I kid you not, I didnt see the cover until after I got this arc and damn I probably would have signed up for this

Tragic Desires by A.M. Hargrove is the second book in her Tragic series and focuses on Drexel whom we met briefly in the first book, Tragically Flawed.

Drexel is dreamy (sigh)! So, the book is about Gemini. She is a mountain biker who suffers an accident and concussion, the concussion leaving her with debilitating migraines. Her boyfriend leaves her, her mother dies, she moves to Texas. She gets through her days (and the pain) by sleeping the days away and drinking and doing drugs in the bars at

***5 Stars!!***

A.M. Hargrove you've done it again! I was totally hooked from the beginning right until the very end. I loved this book.

Oh maaan, if ever I'm in a tight spot and need rescuing I want ex-soldier sexy Drex Wolfe to come get me!! He is definitely the full package - ex-military, tough, strong, alpha male with brooding looks and as HOT AS HELL! *swoons & fans oneself*
Did I mention he was a soldier??

Tragic Desires had everything I love



so different from the first book!! loved it!!!

Inconsistent 3.5 stars

Gemini is suffering due to a head injury and doesn't know she's in danger. Drex notices her and becomes captivated. He saves her then discovers people are after her. An attraction develops as they work to figure out what those people are after and where it is.

I found parts of the story were inconsistent. In the beginning she's suffering from debilitating migraines. She's tried everything and has the money for the best specialists. One visit from Drex's doctor and she's

4.5 stars

This book had the perfect romance-action ratio for me. I didn't really find myself skimming which I do with a lot of other stories similar to this.

My only problem with this book was the terrorist plot. I tend to stay away from action stories that involves terrorists just for this reason. I hated how Allah was mentioned a few times in the story and it seemed to be painting Him in the villainous light. It's quite disrespectful to Muslims because real Muslims all know how these terrorists

Drexel and Gemini's story is like a thriller:
Fast-paced ...
Unpredictable ...
Twisted ...
And amidst all this suspense, there is a love so pure, so strong and overwhelming that every girl and woman will be envious of just reading about it!
Gemini is a heroine, just to my liking ... strong-willed, stubborn and cheeky ...
And Drex ... well, let's just say he's Superman and a very hot and sexy alpha male wrapped up in a VERY nice package.
I'd like someone like him to watch over me. Anytime.

Amazing story

Im a huge fan of the author, and Im glad I found her because wow- amazing talent.
This story is complex, interesting, and unpredictable, with just the right amount of action and sexy time thrown in. Well developed, relatable characters, with a realistic perspective. I mean, I hate books that center on insta-love, because I think it is so unrealistic. However, the connection between Drex & Gemini is explained in a relatable way- and the struggle over their feelings & the

While I really liked the first book in this series Tragically Flawed, I LOVED this one. It was intriguing, suspenseful, action packed and the chemistry between Drexel and Gemini was off the charts. These are richly written, strong characters supported by a great story.

I have definitely become an A.M. Hargrove fan!

After a a biking accident left her with post-concussion syndrome, Gemini became a shell of the woman she used to be. Plagued by intense migraines that leave her unable to function and reaching for alcohol and harder drugs to alleviate the pain, Gemini rolls with the motions of her life, but she's not truly living. Until a one-night encounter with a stranger. Once Drake is in her life, Gemini's life turns on its axis leaving her to question everything she thought she knew and wanted.

Tragic Desires is a Stand Alone Companion Novel to author A.M. Hargrove's novel Tragically Flawed. I haven't read Tragically Flawed yet, and I read Tragic Desires as a stand alone novel and enjoyed it as such.

This story is told in alternating points of view from the two lead characters Gemini Sheridan and Drexel Wolfe. Both characters are likeable and the story is an adult contemporary romance filled with suspense. Drexel is a private investigator who is working on a case and meets Gemini

The thing I love about romantic suspense and thrillers is that it keeps your adrenaline pumping, mind racing, questioning your own judgement, on the tips of your toes you fear of falling over the edge all the while entertaining some sweet romance along the way, and Tragic Desires is no different. It is packed with suspense, action, anticipation, intrigue, fear, courage, hot sexual tension, a dangerously sexy alpha male hero and an unstoppable romance.

This is more realistic than most books. It shows that some people are embarrassed talking about intimacy or their body parts. I liked that. Since I work in Labor and Delivery, I see a lot of that. Women use lots of names for their vaginas and thats the way Gemini was. It was too cute!

I like that she used headaches in her book and showed how debilitating they can be. At the end, A. M. Hargrove shares her own story of headaches. Again, more realistic. My hubby suffers from them after a terrible

I loosen my grip and when I do, so does he. But this whole thing has unhinged me. Nothing is the same. My entire life has been rewritten. Im a character in a novel and Im not sure how this story is going to end.

This book was not at all what I was expecting. I am not even sure what I was expecting, because I had forgotten over time what the book was even about. That is a little habit of mine. I read the blurb, then by the time I read the book, it has been some time and I have no idea what it

Umm, I really dont know where to start with this one. This book hooked me in right from the start and didnt let go until the very last page. Even then I was wanting more. The book starts with Gemini doing what she loves to do, mountain biking, when disaster strikes. She is left with a head injury that causes so much pain she begins seeking relief with illegal drugs. When Drexel first sees Gemini his whole life changes. He cant explain why he is drawn to her, but knows

This is my first A.M. Hargrove and I must say, I am loving it. This book is full of mystery and intrigue and romance. I enjoyed the fast mining plot. It was quite a unique story.

The book starts with Gemini Sheridan having a really bad bike accident. She ends up severely injured. The most serious is her head injury. After the accident her life changes dramatically because of the migraines she suffers from. They are so severe that she cant hold down and job or even function anymore. She is in

The story line is interesting,but the writing style does not pull me in. The writing style needs work. I sense some immaturity and inexperience in the style of writing. " I can't be a smarty pants because I'm not wearing any", is a quote about Gemini. These are the kinds of words that are used to describe her personality. How old is she again?
The dialogue and banter is cheesy and grates on my nerves. Every little detail gets explained and it's unnecessary.
I'm not feeling any connection or spark

This was an ah-mazing book. Super sexy hot alpha male. Female that actually has a backbone and doesn't lay down and let people walk all over her.

Gemini is struggling with sever migraines from a bike crash. She is to the point she just can't handle the pain anymore. She just wants to forget the pain and get her life back. She finds relief with alcohol and drugs. She isn't looking for friends or any type of relationship because it wouldn't work. She lost her boyfriend after the accident because he

Once again, AM Hargrove has written a book that has kept me glued to my kindle and up far too late into the night. Well, actually too dark and early in the morning. My favorite book of hers is Tragically Flawed and I was really unsure how she was going to continue the series because it ended just how I would have hoped. Then I read that it was about Drex and knew I had to read it. The double awesome thing about it being about Drex is that his life intersected the lives of those in Tragically ...more

Gemini is just so adorable and cute and I loved her to bits, "her voice is a whisper. "Your eyes. Sometimes when you look at me. They're um...well, they're sexy." I mean Drex sometimes has to show Gemini what she does to him, "look at me. Touch me. Feel what you do to me. Do you even have to ask?" His lips are parted and those damn eyes draw me in. But when my gaze drifts down to his boxers, I finds my answer." He also has to make sure things are straight between them, "Gemini, wasn't it you who ...more

Overall, I'm smitten with everything A.M. writes in the romance genre... but I'll admit, I do have favorites. I wanted this to be a favorite... really, I did. Once I 'met' Drexel in a previous book - I wanted more. Nay, I demanded for more. He needed his own book, and he got it. And I just can't give a reasonable explanation as to why I don't love this as I've loved other books. Like, really, really, like... entertaining and hot, and hey - it's got Austin in it!
