Note to self:

If an arsehole tells you he’s yours, believe him.

If a good guy tells you he’s yours, be dubious.

Good guys lie, because their ‘good’ reputation makes it so easy.

Arseholes never lie. Because they have no reason to. They don’t care about your ‘feelings’. They just slap ya’ with the hard truths.

And nothing hurts more than the truth, right?

So basically, Hard Truth

5 TEARJERKER STARS!

These days, I’m hesitant to read follow up’s on romance novels… cause most often, the author tend to change the character that we’ve grown to love.

BUT, I am happy to say that, in this sequel, Ms. Cole stayed true to her characters and only worked on their character growth!!!!!

Now if you’re looking for that perfect main characters, then this book is not for you. But if you want a more challenging and flawed individuals with a challenging and flawed relationship, then I would hi

AN EMOTIONAL ROLLERCOASTER OF HEARTBREAK, SECOND CHANCES, AND TRUE LOVE! (Or obsession)


If you love angst, heartbreaking stories about the "only" love, this book is for you!!!!! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND TO MASOCHIST READERS!
I gotta be real here. I did not want to read this book. I had heartburn just thinking about it!!! The way the first ended was fine for me, why do we have to go through more? However, I

Honestly, this should probably be lower and those 4stars you can pin down to goodwill considering my love for the first book Jahleel. But how can you fault an author who was prodded (coerced?) to write more because Sahleel shippers couldn't just let go? This follow-up was not part of the plan and it is apparent. But like others I wanted the Krissy thing justified to me. And considering that pain that we had to go through given the wild roller-coaster ride we went through in the first book, we ju ...more

I had a really hard time reviewing this story. Saskia and Jahleel are a trainwreck of a couple. They are obsessed with each other. They lack good judgement and their past histories have created lies and mistrust between.

They are both famous and are constantly scrutinized by their fans. Everyone wants them.

They are constantly back and forth between a love/hate type of relationship. Sometimes it was exhausting to follow. Most times I thought they should just end it and get on with their lives se

When I read the synopsis, I was afraid to read the book. Rightfully so, this book was gut wrenching. I felt their love, heartbreak and pain. I thank the author for not giving us another sappy novella but I don't think the conflict was realistic. (view spoiler)

"Keeping Jahleel" by S. Ann Cole
5 out of 5 stars

It's time for a return trip into the lives of Saskia and Jahleel and I couldn't wait to dive in! Cole did not disappoint! I was immediately transported back into their world and was glued to the page until I turned the last one. If you are a fan of these two then you must buy this book and if you are new to their story then don't hesitate to buy the first one, "Jahleel", and then cruise straight on to this one.

As much as I didn’t like the first book I still read this book and I actually really liked it. I liked it so much that I will probably read the next book in the series as well. Most of the high school BS was missing from this book and that made it more enjoyable to me. Kia grew on me and I was rooting for her in the end.

Characters: The characters are well written and most of them are relatable.

Sex: yes

Jahleel and Saskia's story was so much better than Krissy and Trev. (I just have to let that thought out. whooo!)

Jahleel and Saskia were meant to be together. And i'm so damn happy right now because they tied the knot in the end.

In this book, you will learn how to forgive, to get through all the bad shit for the one you truly love.

I'm not one who gives a very long review, so i'm keeping this short. But i just want to say to whoever is reading this. This book is the bomb!! And i'm giving it 5 ob

ANGST ANGST ANGST!!! This second book is full of drama, heartbreak and obsessive love. Jahleel and Saskia are both so super passionate and volatile together. There were moments that you got to see Jahleel showing his asshole self again. I finished reading this book too quickly! Thank you S. Ann Cole for writing this sequel on Jahleel.

Make sure you read Jahleel before you read this book.

This is a really intense and emotional read. It's an angsty book that had me shouting at my kindle again.
Can't really review without spoilers so I'm gonna say I really do recommend these two books and am really looking forward to reading the next on the series , Chads Chase.

What happens when two people love each other to the point of obsession?

They end up hurting the one that they love the most.

If you haven’t read Jahleel, then I suggest that you read it first. It will help you to understand the characters in this book…trust me, they are unlike any characters that you have encountered in your romance books. This is definitely not your run of the mill love story. It will make you want to jump through the pages and into the book just to shake some smarts into this c

I have read everything this author has written. And from her first book to this one, her has writing has only gotten better and better with each book. I think she has found her voice and style and I have to say I love it. It is raw and real and straightforward.

Ok so I have to say that this should had being the first book in the series, I have to say that I love this book way more than the first one, and love it even more that we get to hear a little from Jahleel point of view, that in the first book we did not hear it from him but from Saskia.

I've been meaning to read this book for so long but always got side tracked reading something else.
What I love about S. Ann Coles books is that her books aren't all hearts and flowers all the time. Yes there is an HEA of course, just the fact that its more realistic with the characters and their thoughts. And I love that.
I love the fact that although Saskia is madly, stupidly in love with jk that she can still say that her exes are hot or whatever.. I mean come on we're only human. It's differe

This story is a 2 person POV story which I was happy to read it like that I got a to feel more of what Jahleel was/is going through and all that he has to over come and except things for what they really are. The same goes for the badass rocker Kai. They both rocked my mind and heart with my emotions on overdrive this time around I was not excepting all that happened but glad that it ended the way it was suppose to. I loved/liked every page turn that I did and every word I read just spoke to me. ...more

Another bloomin rollercoaster read. Couldn't put it down had to find out what was going to happen to these two crazy obsessed love birds.
At one point I nearly threw my kindle out the door. I was getting nervous near the end I really didn't want what was happening, actually to happen to them. Some crazy shit hits the fan. This one really had my blood pumping with Jahleel and Saskias lives what the rich and famous go through. Brilliant ending.
Onto Chads Chase.

I can only give this book one star and that's only because I loved the characters so much in Jahleel.

The entire reason for this book completely escapes me. Date rape, dragging another woman in to even up the hurt? I just don't get it.

I've read and enjoyed all the other books by this author. I can only hope the next one wins me over again.

Well, Saskia and Jahleel are still true to form in this follow up novella. I loved and hated them all at the same time. They are neurotic and psychotic and I kinda loved every minute of it. They are the epitome of crazy in love.

“But it’s a lie. No relationship is perfect. There’s always an ugly story swept under a rug of happy pictures and smiles. ‘Cause when you find the one, it’s just too fuckin’ hard to give them up, no matter the pain, no matter the shame, no matter the cost. So we have to patch up that fuckin’ rift, and love with a broken love. And it will challenge us to love harder, stronger, with more faith. Love fierce enough to overcast that rift, to make sure it never breaks open again.” 0 likes
“Saskia stopped speaking when Jahleel started searching all around. Pulling out the desk drawers and closing them. Looking under the desk. Emptying his sweats pockets, pulling them inside out. “Wha-what are you doing?” she asked with a tinge of hope to her voice. “Looking for a fuck to give.” 0 likes
