Kimber has had a crush on her best friend’s bad boy brother ever since she laid eyes on his gorgeousness. His air of danger, his swagger and his bad boy personae were no deterrent to the 22 year-old virgin.

Jaxen’s cold demeanor towards her and his general haughty attitude were no deterrent, either. She wanted him. Only in a perfect world would he want her back, but when he did, when he claimed he loved her, she found her own piece of Heaven on Earth. He was gentle, caring, carefree and he even

Ryanne did an amazing job of keeping me on the edge of the seat. She is the master of the unexpected. All I can say is watch out! Her style of writing pulled me in immediately and would not let me go until I was screaming at the end for book two. But I know her, i just bet Ryanne has something to throw me off my game even more in book two. I the dynamic of the characters and the overall plot. Just remember nothing is as it seems. So, if you are looking for an amazing read, get this book. You won ...more

4 JAXEN and KIMBER stars

Wow....talk about a Cliffhanger!!
Jaxen and Kimber make for quite a combination. She is quite innocent compared to Jaxen who...isn't. This story is good. It has the promise of much more to come and holy hell did it leave you reeling at the end. I have no idea how the situation is going to be salvaged. Truly. But I'm sure we will see things sort themselves out somehow. The next book is from Jaxen's POV which should be intriguing. After reading this book you need to get his

I have found myself a new author to follow. Where do you start with a book like this? First, I had to walk away for a bit after the ending…I was so upset. (I know, get a life, right?!) But that is how you feel when an author pulls you into to their story so much that you are left wearing your feelings on your sleeve. Ryanne took you through all the emotions; laughter, sadness, and with the ending, anticipation for the next book to follow this.

Ms. Anthony did a great job writing about the various

This book is different from the M series. It's not better but it was entertaining. I was well on the way to giving it five stars until that ending. One thing Ms. Anthony is good at is cliffhangers. I liked Kimber. She wasn't a dizzy girl. I really liked her friend Samantha and that brother. And that first date! Oh wow! Didn't like that first kiss though. That was beyond me. Kimber was wrong for that but Jaxen didn't care so why should I? I'm hoping the second book tells us what happened after th ...more

Ryanne Anthony’s first book in the Negative Ion series is Falling. I read the synopsis and thought this was a book I could really like and I was not wrong.

The story revolves around two very close families, Kimber Forrest and her mom, her best friend Samantha and her brother Jaxen who Kimber has a serious crush on.

Kimber has a step brother and the step brother has a friend who only thinks of Kimber as his best friends little sister. The problem is Kimber really likes her brother’s friend and woul

SPOILER ALERT



I seriously fell in love with the love triangle between Jaxen, Kimber and Roland.

I honestly have to say this book is one of the best books I have ever read in my life. Jaxen has been in love with Kimber for the last two years, he has been shielding all his band buddies from not going out with her. But he has been too scared I guess to go for it. Not knowing that Kimber has been in love with him also. She and her best friend Samantha finish college earlier and she is also Jaxen's twi

This is the first book in the Negative Ion Series by Ryanne Anthony. This is a story about two people and the families that surround them. This book was a great read and I really enjoyed and I even enjoyed the WTF moments in it. Ryanne pulled you in from the beginning. I laughed and I got pissed off at both the main characters. I was even yelling at my Kindle at one point. This book elicits strong emotion as you root for the characters. Not just the main ones but the supporting ones as well. I w ...more

WOW!! I am in complete shock! I was not expecting that ending at all. That completely threw me for a loop. Okay, I have to say I absolutely loved this book and instantly fell in love with the characters. From the first page to the last, I was so wrapped up in the story I literally read the whole book in one sitting while at work only stopping to when I actually had to work. As soon as I finished whatever I had to do, I was right back in the story. Ryanne Anthony writes an amazing story that just ...more

This book literally has it all, it's full of drama, laugh out loud moments and emotional turmoil. i loved the moments with Kimber, Samantha, and Kimber's parents. There are frustrating moments, that involve Jaxon. I did enjoy this book, I am very impressed with the author's work. It's emotionally charged, with lots of twist and turns, but such a great read. Of course, the ending had me saying what the hell just happened. i look fo

Love triangle, ugh! EVERY SINGLE TIME without fail, if there is a love triangle I am on the wrong side of the triangle. WHY did it have the end that way!! I read this book thinking that the whole thing was a little too NA for me, just some of the lines and conversation seemed young. However, the subject matter was adult. However, mix in the love triangle and I am bipolar. I would have LOVED it if the ending had been

Raynne Anthony out did herself with this one. Any book that has the reader feeling all the emotions right along with the characters deserves five stars. Throughout this book I found myself laughing, crying, and upset when the characters were. I can't wait to get my hands on the second book when it comes out. I can honestly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a wonderfully written, heart felt, contemporary romance. I have found myself a new author to follow for sure.

Just perfect! Jax and Itsy are amazing. I can see myself doing the things she does and did. Jax will have you loving him and hating him all at the same time. Again, she never disappoints me! I can say that when I want to read a book her books are my go to.

This book was raw and edgy. It totally grabbed my interest from the beginning. I would have loved to see the pacing evened out more, or maybe the scenes to be more fleshed out. But, hey, Ryanne Anthony knows how to spin an engaging story. I read the book through in almost 1 sitting because I didn't want to put it down. I loved the characters, even Jaxen, who clearly has some issues. I'm still not clear what exactly Jaxen's issues stem from. He and his sister seem to have a love hate relationship ...more

This was supposed to be a shirt read. I started it and put it down a couple of times. There was a lot going on and there are a lot of characters. I liked Kimber for the most part but Jaxon was not a favorite. He had some good parts somewhere in the middle of the story. I am interested in reading where his head was. I can guess at his reasons for behaving the way he did when he broke Kimber's heart but still he was way out if line. the end leaves a lot of unanswered que

Loved this one, loved the two main characters. I liked Jaxen right from the start and right up until he hurt Kimber, not physically but verbally.
Apart from Jaxen and Kimber there were several other engaging minor characters and I hope to see more of them in the series.
I would thoroughly recommend this to anyone wanting a light, enjoyable read. Speaking of enjoyable, the sex scenes were hot!
I felt like I was on a rollercoaster, just like Kimber’s emotions. The ending was totally unexpected but I

Her love of words began when she was given her first novel at age 11... Tristan & Isolde... by her father, who'd given it to her to stop her incessant talking.
