Make sure you read Heels of Love before you read this.
Ok I'm not sure where to start with this book. Heels of Love had my head so messed up I tracked the author down on Facebook and begged that she hurries up with book two. Now I'm here wondering how the heck I can write a review for this.

I'm not going to repeat what happens in this book as it's in the description. Oh wait- only part of what happens is in the description. This has so much going on. I read this in one sitting. I ignored my favo

Cricket is back where Troy and Trey want her; out of the arms of Jyme and back with them. It didn't take her long to get back in the swing of her old life.

Jyme won't let Cricket go without a fight. He does everything in his power to find her and bring her home. But will it be enough? Crickets past has once again come between her relationship with Jyme. The question is will she finally put a stop to it, or will it be the last of her and Jyme?

The final book in this series and it did not disappoin

I've been looking at my tablet for 5 solid minutes... internally cursing this book out. WHY? well because I should have been freaking forewarned that the ending is NOT your normal "HEA". I will of course explain why I am so irritated (attempting to keep it spoiler free).

So... I have read a few books where the ending was not as expected....and I am perfectly fine with that, HOWEVER most of these books will provide you with a "warning" not your standard ending.. which allow you to be mentally pre

I was more than excited to start this book.  It is the second book in the series.  You must read Heel of Love first!!! It lays all the background for Jyme and Cricket. The beginning of their story had me up, down, backwards and sideways in the best possible way!  I liked that Cricket was not a size 2 but a voluptuous 18 and her man liked her that way. She was confident and independent!  You go girl!!! Jyme well he sorta freaked me out at first!  Then he knocked my fucking socks off!  He wa

Wounded Love by Phoenix Rayne
4 stars
Reviewed by Dani

Wounded Love is book two in the From Love to Loathe series by Phoenix Rayne. Heels of Love must be read first in order to understand this novel. Wounded Love shows us more about Cricket's past and just how far she will go to protect Jyme. I was surprised about her past a bit. Usually I expect the male character to come out with those revelations! She is an admirable character who will do whatever is necessary to pr

This is the second book in the "From Love to Loathe" series and is my favorite. I don't go in for romance alone an I need more to keep me interested. This book had it and more!

So it starts off with Cricket back to her old life as a casino call girl. I was not expecting her to be so good at her job. If you have a delicate nature this book is far more spicy then the last one so be prepared.

*Spoiler alert*

DO NOT READ IF YOU HAVEN’T READ Heals of Love!!!

When we last saw Cricket and Jyme Cricket had exchanged her freedom to save Jyme’s life. This book picks up a year later. Cricket has been forced back into the life she desperately tried to get away from, but for Jyme she does it. It’s not a pretty life and I want to cry for her through most of this book. Jyme of course loves her so much that he won’t give up until he finds her.

As with the first book, I had a hard time getting into the story, but I

Wounded Love is book number two in the From Love to Loathe series. Heels of Love must be read first in order to understand Wounded Love.
In this book we start a year after the first book left off. Again we are in the life of Cricket and Jyme. This book has alot of emotion in it so be prepared for that.
Cricket is still dealing with a life that she hates and wanted to get away from. But she can't. She deals by living this way for Jyme. You feel her heartache. You can feel her emotions as the pages

I truly loved reading Cricket and Jyme's story.

Wounded Love, the second book following Heels of Love, starts off right where Heels of Love ended.

Wounded Love answered all the questions that I was left with after reading Heels of Love.

Jyme finds out things that Cricket was forced to do for her job, and things between them get really bad.

Eventually they make up but Crickets lifestyle wont allow her to stay and have a "normal" relationship.

A lot of intense events leave Jyme alone without

Wounded Love was a great sequel to Heels of Love it pick right up where Heels of Love left off. There was so many twists and turns in this book it was unbelievable. The things that she had to endure in this story broke my heart and made feel so sorry for Cricket… There were so many secrets reveal in this book that left we in awe.

Cricket makes you love her in this book because she was doing all she could to keep herself, her family, and the ones she loved safe be any means necessary.

Wounded Love is the second book in the From Love to Loathe series. It is not a standalone and you must read Heels of Love first. I loved Heels of Love and couldn't wait to read Wounded Love.
In the beginning of the book, there were a lot of thing happening and I was a little confused on what was going on.
Troy and Trey are in book one but I didn't realize how much of a hold they would have on Cricket and how much of a part they would play in the second book. I was definitely shocked by some of t

This book was just as good as the first one. Cricket was wounded indefinitely. Jhyme was acting out of anger at first but he wanted his baby and Cricket but he just didn't like the lifestyle she once had. D'Artagnan was madly in love with Cricket she just didn't feel the same about him. I was glad that Chyna got her self together for Michael. Babe was really hurt about her mom leaving her but to call her b***h was a bit harsh for a toddler. I really wanted Jhyme and Cricket to be a family. I don ...more

***Received from author for an honest review***

Spoiler free!!!

Heels of Love must be read before this!!!

This book starts out right where Heels of Love ends and I must say that it is just as good if not better than the first. There were many parts in this book that either had me so mad or just wanted to make me cry. The love that Cricket has for Jyme is amazing and so intense that you can just feel it as you are reading it.

There is action, drama, and quite a few surprises.

Make sure you have a box

Absolutely brilliant, I'm so emotionally exhausted!

WOW, Wounded Love is the second book in the From Love to Loathe Series by Phoenix Rayne. I could not put it down, grabbed me on page one and held my attention until the end. A very intense story line, many twists and turns. I hope there is a part three, Jyme and Cricket cannot end like this. Pick up a copy today of Heels of Love and Wounded Love. You will not be disappointed. Again I say WOW.

This is the first book I've read by Phoenix Rayne. It will not be my last. There was action from the very first page. I almost hated to see it end.
