Rounding up to 4 stars

I have to admit that I wasn't too sure about this book in the beginning. Scared of Forever is Blake and Emily's story. We first meet up with Blake in Scared of Beautiful and he wasn't my favorite character. But, the synopsis of this story drew me in, so I decided to give him a chance.

Blake and Emily become engaged only 5 months after being together. Emily believes that she has met the perfect guy. That is until she starts discovering certain things don't add up. Blake has

Complimentary copy provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.

Emily wanted to start a new life, away from Cuba, there was nothing keeping her there, after everything that’s happened, she decided she needed a change. So Emily packed up and left for the Big Apple. What she didn’t expect, was that life in New York wasn’t what it was all made up to be, until she met Blake.

Blake is the typical high profile socialite, a guy any girl would dream of.. handsome, a doctor and all the wealth y

Wow! Loved this book! One of the best reads I've had in quite a while!

It was well written, well-paced and kept me completely engaged. I always find it interesting to see how an author will create a situation that would make our heroine look really really bad in real life and how she writes her out of it successfully and keeps me vested in the HEA.

Being engaged to one man and then befriending his least favorite brother is a recipe for disaster. There were a couple of convenient the

This novel is cleverly told from three points of view—engaged couple Emily and Carson…and Carson’s brother Tyler. After a brief courtship, Emily and Carson are planning their next step, marriage. Tyler appears and everything changes. There is an immediate connection between Emily and Tyler. Life has become complicated. The author draws the reader into their w

This is book two in the Scared Series. Characters can be found in both books but they can also be read as standalones.

This is a really great love triangle told by three points of view. Loved the storyline .Emily is engaged to Blake. I so disliked Blake ggrrr. I was rooting for Tyler, Blakes brother.

If your looking for a really good book that will pull on your heartstrings then I recommend this book. Looking forward to reading more from this author.

I was given this book to read for an honest review. Blake is your social lite king who wouldn't want a Blake in your life, but Blake is controlled by mommie and sometimes that can be hell. Emily comes from Cuba wanting change, but soon finds out New York is far from different. These two characters fall in love with each other but hide secret that can break you. This book was heart wreaching, but an awesome love story.

This is one of those love stories that drags you through the mud to get to the shiny happily ever

after and I loved every second of reading this! Let me start off by clarifying that last statement. I cannot

remember the last time I have so completely and utterly hated and absolutely despised a character and

wanted to reach into the pages of the book and throttle him myself! In the prior book by this author we

are introduced to Blake and he is portrayed as a genuinely great guy. I felt like I lit

*I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*

This was a very emotional story – we had 3 POV’s, 3 different sets of emotions to take on board and deal with – it was awesome! I loved all the different story’s that came with each character. As a book on a whole it was again very much an emotional rollercoaster; I love how these books show you that mistakes can be put in the past and how amazing life can be once you get past them.

Emily is the sort of character I love books for.

I read this book as a standalone.
From the description alone I knew I was getting into a love triangle situation... but by the time I had made it to about page 15 of the story, I had pretty much decided that I already hated Blake. That factor alone softened the blow of the tangled web of two brothers and a girl they love. Something else that caught me by surprise was the fact that there was A LOT of stuff going on with the characters besides this

I absolutely loved this book. It was great to get the three pov of tyler, blake, and emily. You got to feel what they were feeling at that specific moment, which made you feel that much closer to the characters. Finding your first love is always an experience that you want to have and emily found that. Blake gave her what she needed, security, love, and stability. That's what love is right? Finding out that love could be much more than that was n

While I'm not a huge fan of the love triangle, Jacqueline Abrahams did a great a great job of making me hate Blake quickly, so the rest of the book was smooth sailing.

Emily finds herself in New York all alone after losing what little family she had left. She's been there for five months and finds herself engaged to the wealthy, charismatic, Blake Carson (in my opinion, the only thing redeeming about this guy was his name). Blake is a medical resident and stays pretty busy and pretty late workin

I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

I loved the first book in the series and this one did not disappoint. I am not a real fan of reading love triangles but this storey was so much more then just a love triangle, it had so many twists and turns in it.

Right from the beginning I was not a fan of Blake. I didn't really like him in the first book and this book made me not like him even more. He was so selfish everything needed to be about him and money, did not care about anything

I received a complimentary e-copy of Scared of Forever in exchange for an honest review.

Right from the start, I was not a big fan of Blake's. I don't like that he started something with Emily when he had someone else on the side and he definitely should have never gotten to the point of getting engaged to her, no matter what the pressure was from his mother to have someone acceptable. So when Tyler came to town and it was clear that he was not a big fan of Blake's or of his overbearing mother, h

I thought Emily was the kind of girl who just needed to get away from everything she known, and been through. So Emily packed up and left for the Big Apple. What she didn’t expect, was that life in New York wasn’t what it was all made up to be, until she met Blake.

I thought that Blake was your typical high profile socialite, a guy any girl would dream of. He is handsome and a doctor. With the lifestyle Blake has been living, is the type where he got anything he wanted, especially women. But behi
I have not read the first book in this series. That being said, for the first few chapters in this book, I was kind of turned off to this book. I am not sure if it was the writing itself or the characters point of view.

With this being a new adult book you are expecting some steamy pages. However I dislike how these characters meet and are instantly together. Call me old fashioned, but I kinda like getting to know about the characters and their backgrounds before I just start reading about them

I feel so special that I have had the privilege to read these amazing books in this series before they have been officially released.
My total honest opinion about this book is this one is my fav and it's going to be hard to top
Emily and Blake's story has a very unique story line yes it's a love story but I loved loved loved this story line from the very mention by jac.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
This was an exhausting read to be honest but worth the time. Emily is adorably naive and Blake is just a plain ole ass or is he? I think the author tried to give you a glimpse of his vulnerability but also his arrogance which made me question his likeliness. His skewed view on life is based on his controlling mother which I'm not quite sure I liked how her story fit in at the end but overall the book was great. The relationship as read by ea

I was a bit weary of how this book would end when I first started it. I really loathed Blake's character...his attitude about life, spoiled and selfish, everything handed to him on a silver platter. The idea that a person growing up in a life of money must have this fake facade with the perfect wife, presenting the perfect picture to society, while secretly having affairs and feeling as if you have a right to do as you please, disgusts me. THANK GOD FOR TYLER!

He truly was the only redeeming thin
I received this book for my honest review.

This is the third novel in the sacred series but can be read as a stand alone.

Emily is engaged to the love of her life Blake but slowly she realizes that Blake has been telling lies after lies. Then there's Blake's brother Tyler who immediately feels a connection to Emily and she feels it too.

Like the first novel, this one is also told in the point of views of Emily, Blake and Tyler.

For the moment Blake was introduced I didn`t like him but the author di

Wow, talk about romantic complications. There are 3 POVs in this story so three people you may want to side with or maybe just one. Emily was the character i most connected with, just because she was like every woman who wants the dream man but they do not come about and the one man who sweeps you off your feet could be the one you least expect in this case Tyler. Tyler he is the guy you will want and bless him he has such good intentions but when the heart falls for someone you may not be able ...more

Goodreads first read.

I have to say I found this a quick read and not because it was particularly gripping just that it felt unsubstantial somehow. As intended I disliked Blake for his behaviour and treatment of Emily and liked Tyler a lot better. But I though Emily was weak and far too naive which made her hard for me to like. The huge flip in the character of Eliza didn't quite feel genuinely believable much less that she would have kept Emily's secret even from the apparently less favoured son

I loved this book! Okay, now that is out of the way...
The story of Emily and Blake and Emily and Tyler is well-written, brilliantly paced and emotional. I loved seeing Emily grow, figure out her own self-worth, realize what she really wants and goes for it boldly. Blake is loathesome and pitiful at the same time. Tyler is fabulous: sexy, smart, vulnerable and loving. Their mother starts out as expected: mommy dearest wrapped in

I received a copy thru Goodreads first-reads program. I always feel like I don't do the book justice as I am not good with making wordy, beautiful reviews. I can say the book is about a young girl who meets Mr. Wrong which leads to Mr. Right. There is romance, some 'intimate' moments, and a guy that really needs to get himself together. I did enjoy the book and would definitely read additional books by this author.

I had a hard time getting into this book. With the first few chapters I wanted to stop because I hated the Blake character so much. But after a few starts and stops I pushed through. I was presently surprise that as I continued to read that I really enjoyed the book. The introduction of Tyler turned it all around for me. It was a good read and I enjoyed it, but it won't be on my read twice list. Thank you for sharing a copy with me.
