LOVE— it’s a common word that people take for granted. As for me, Sasha Adams, I have seen that love isn’t everything, though sometimes it’s meant to be. But to be honest, I never wanted it. That has been my plan for as long as I can remember. The only person I ever wanted to love is my sister Lola. But then I met not one no, not even two— but three beautiful men.

I don't know what to say.. My feelings are so torn.
Sasha Adams never wanted to fall in love and has always avoided it but all of a sudden she has 2 men competing for her love. You would think that having 2 sexy men wanting you would be a good thing but she is so confused because she wants both. She finds herself in quiet the dilemma and I found myself laughing through most of it.

Josh owns a tattoo shop and is covered in tattoos. He has a reputation as a man whore. Sasha knows that he is going

Three teams to choose from…Team Josh, Dylan and Brax. From my point of view, I would have to say Josh is most like me. He is a total man-whore until he meets “the one”. It is surprising how willing you are to change your ways when your heart goes thump thump thump when you meet that special person. You hope that they feel the same way, but as Josh found out, love isn’t always easy!

Josh was Mr Sex, Mr Get Girls Panting, Mr Anything Goes, Mr Exciting, Mr Sarcastic, Mr Cheeky. He had his softer sid

Sasha isn't looking for love but it is looking for her. Dylan the good doctor wants her, and then you have the tattooed bad boy who makes her heart race. Throw in a sexy musician named Brax and what do you have? Sasha's Dilemma.

At first reading the story from Sasha's point of view with her factual bare-bones style was hard for me but I quickly fell in love with Josh and even grudgingly come to love Sasha once I was able to understand her personality a little better. I think she overreacted just

Well I'm broken.....TL Smith you've broken me into tiny bits with Sasha....but damn what a read!!!!

What can you do when you do everything in your power to avoid love...but it does everything it can to find take the first reason you thinks big enough to give up an run..that's exactly what Sasha did to Josh to avoid facing the fact she loved him!!!!

Years later he's back in her life and he's not letting go easily, he wants his second chance and he'll do anything he has to so he gets it...

So my brain is fuggled this morning, I stayed up way, way, way past bedtime to finish this yeah school run was a bitch!
There are so many WTF moments in this book, where you scream at your kindle "why would you do that?" But there are even more hot, loving, gentle moments that melt you. I think that is why it's so hard to deal with some things that occur.

I will hold my hand up and say I'm team dayum! Sasha made some seriously questionable choices, but let's face it she d

Loved this book by T.L. Smith, it has a bit of everything ...

Sasha’s Dilemma by T.L. Smith is not your average romance, there’s no happy ever after and I have to admit I really like my happy ever after, but it did not in any way detract from my love for this book.

Sasha Adams is a lucky girl, she has three very gorgeous men after her, Dylan (the doctor), Josh (the tattooed playboy) and Brax (the rock god). Sasha was not looking for love, but it

I learned a very good lesson from watching my mother react every time she got dumped. I will never fall in love. My name is Sasha Adams and I have seen that love isn’t everything, though sometimes it’s meant to be.

But to be honest, I never wanted it. But then I met not one no, not even two— but three beautiful men. Dylan, the doctor, had his head screwed on tight. Josh, well, he was a tattooed sex machine playboy. Then there was Brax, the rock star. They all wanted my heart, but I refused to gi

It's right there in the synopsis. This is not a HEA, what the author doesn't tell you is she is going to rip your heart out stomp on it and give it back broken. You will love, hate, cry, get frustrated with this drama filled emotional roller coaster of a book.

Sasha Adams isn't looking for love, she doesn't want it or really believe in it. Why would she want it when all it does is cause pain and complicates things but love is looking for her!
Sasha and her sister Lola stick together, it's them a

I went back and forth several times over what to rate this book, I couldn't make my mind up between 3 or 4 stars. But after thinking on it a while I've settled on 4 stars.

The story was engaging and the love interests made for great reading. However I did have some issues with Sasha, the main character and narrator. Sometimes I would sympathise with the situations she found herself in but sometimes I wanted to slap some sense into her when I felt she was making really bad choices.

I was sucked in

Well first off it says in the blurb it's not a HEA. Well it's true. When Sasha was growing up she saw what love did with her mum so she vowed never to fall in love. So Sasha becomes closed off...then 3 handsome men come along and turn her world upside down and bring out emotions she locked away. Well this book will bring out the intense emotions out of you. It will make you want to chuck the book against a wall....then pick it up to read again because you want to know what happens next then chuc ...more

Sasha's Dilemma was a truly challenging read. Not because of any weakness, simply because the author pushes her characters in so many directions that I was left torn, confused, amazed and heart broken.

It's a fabulous read, one that pushes the boundaries of the struggles of a relationship and feeling divided in love. The author, T.L Smith, handles this drama and the complexities that go with it, superbly well.

I bought into Sasha's story and was able to understand her psyche and dilemma, so much

OMG this book absoluty broke me!! Like im talking fetal position, bawling my eyes out asking why why why?? But with that said holy crap what a great book. I have never been so tore up about a book that I actually had to take a couple days off from reading or even talking about it. The emotions in this book are just beautiful and horrible all in one.

When I first started reading this book, I couldn't put it down. When I was half way through I was so conflicted, I wanted to just slap Sasha for making me choose, which hunk should I barrack for!?! With all the people and their storys, what a dilemma she must be in. When I was nearly the end my head was spinning! When I finished the book T.L. Smith... You not only turned Sash's life upside down but you put my face in a tissue box!
If this is your first book.. Congratulations! I can't wait to see

What can i say about this book without giving so much away ... oh, i know!!! I LOVED IT!! .. that Sasha is one lucky lady..

Wow, can't help but love Sasha from the beginning...nothing has been easy for her & she's been thru a lot. But wow, this book was a roller coaster of emotions...the ending broke my heart & I went they a box of Kleenex. Now I learn there's a second book to this story so am anxious to finish the series. I really hope Sasha has a happy ending...poor girl.

I loved it, I hated it ,I laughed and I cried but most of all I ant to know where we go from here. If you are after a HEA book then this is not for you but if you want real emotions, real problems and real people then definitely give this a whirl.

Another DNF for me. I didn't really like Sasha or Lola and too much repetition for me. I got bored.
This is not a HEA - well this is the first line of the synopsis So I guess I was prepared to be bawling at some point in the book, But Ms Smith actually had me thinking that there was going to be a silver lining at one point... but by the end that hope was mercilessly stamped upon!!! Silly me...

The book is told in Sasha's POV and sometimes you want to shake her, and other times you want to give her a big arse hug, and dry her tears... She's had a rough upbringing and she doesn't believe in HEA o

I received a complimentary copy of Sasha’s Dilemma for an honest review.

I read the first line – this is not an HEA! - and knew that I would need to remind myself of this throughout the book. Therefore, I felt somewhat prepared for the outcome. I love love love reading book from authors in other countries – the slang and wording always grabs my attention and T.L. Smith was able to do that.

Sasha doesn’t love – she saw her mother wanting to be loved by too many men that she was turned off. I honest

Wow, this book was amazing. After seeing what her mother was like Sasha made a vow to never love. She had that fear that she would end up like her mother and didn't want to. Sasha grew up and had met two great guys, and had to make the choice between the safe one or the one who she's doesn't believe is too safe. She chooses the one she doesn't feel is too safe, and later learns about something hidden and she can't get over it. Not then anyway, so she leaves and tries to start over. Will she ever ...more

I was given this book by the author in return for an honest review.

This is not a happily ever after story. It will make you cry and make you curse. But it is an awesome book and well worth reading.

It is a fast paced book that moves in a bit of a whirlwind. The characters are well written and loveable. Sasha is indecisive at times but eventually follows her heart in the end.

I just really need to warn you again it's not a HEA book, so don't read if you absolutely at all costs need the HEA. If you

What a great debut novel from T.L Smith.

Sasha Adams is a girl with a plan, she doesn't want love. Love only complicates things, but we all know we don't always get what we want.
I enjoyed following Sasha on her journey of life, love friendship and pain. This book will make you laugh, scream and cry as Sasha truly gets herself into a dilemma, she has to make some hard choices and ultimately takes a chance but things don't go the way she want's.

Go read it!!

Wow, Sasha really does have a dilemma, although I don't think I'd mine all that much it were me lol. I really enjoyed this book it made me laugh and capture me completely. It is well written and at times I feel like I could relate to the characters. I would definitely recommend this book as must read. Looking forward to what comes next.
