Two years of silence and wondering; of desperate sleepless longing. And Jax Walker is a hard man to resist. Just as she's prepared to open herself to new love, Harlow's whole world is thrown int ...more

Consumed was a perfect follow up to Collide! Harlow, our smart, sassy, independent heroine, is back in this sequel, along with her best friend Jenna. Ms. Hannigan also introduces a handful of new characters that her readers will fall in love with: Jamie and Mark, Lucas, Crimson, and--my personal favorite--Jax, a Jason Mamoa look-alike with a kind and caring heart.

Consumed picks up two years after the events in Collide. Harlow and Jenna are at university, and Harlow is still trying to get over he

Just as good as book 1 you ask???...Yes, Yes it is!!!

I absolutely loved Collide and Consumed wasn't any different! Again, I started and finished the book in mere hours...I just couldn't put it down. Luckily this time hubby didn't interrupt thereby risking bodily harm!

With the way Collide ended I wasn't sure where Consumed was going to go when I started it. I assumed the logical route, the most direct path. Pick up where we left off sort of thing...Well you know what they say about assuming don't

“If you run, I’ll just chase you.”

Consumed is book 2 in the Collide series. I enjoyed reading book 1 in this series. However, I fell in love with Jax in this book, and felt that J. C. Hannigan wrote this in a style that far surpassed Collide.

“Your skeletons don’t scare me.”

Harlow is living in Ottawa and continues to have a bond with Jenna. They now live together and have a tight friendship. Although Harlow continues to be the smart and brassy young woman we found her to be in Collide, she has f

I’m delighted to say that this particular sequel is of the type that works well as a follow-up. Not only does the story read in that way, the author has worked at introducing relevant information from the original tale into this second instalment. The necessary snippets are drip-fed to the reader as the story progresses. It is not a force-fed back-story; which I’ve seen in other attempts at a sequel. I believe this author has done the job thoroughly and properly.

That was my thought, but
I learned a hard lesson. Pursuing the things I wanted, when it came to matters of the heart, was dangerous and foolish. I'd only end up hurt.

I'm a bit heart-broken over this. I was really cheering for Harlow and Iian. But Iian is MIA after serving his sentence. No call, letter, visit, nothing. But can she ever trust someone again???? That is t question. But when she meets a nice attractive guy in one of her classes, she just might.
This was a great follow-up to Collide.

I could go on and on about this book. First let me say, you need to read the first book in the series, Collide and then Consumed. You may be a little lost.
This book was fantastic! I couldn't put it down.
Harlow leaves behind the pain and hurt of her hometown to attend college. She has lived through some traumatic experiences but she tries to not let it stop her. Until she comes face to face with a hand

This is the second book in this series and they must be read in order. The more I read of this series the more I love it. Harlow is in her second year of college and only has a year left. She still finds herself thinking about Iain often. She hasn’t heard anything from him since his arrest. She feels differently about their relationship now. She doesn’t love him any less however she sees it from a different vantage point now. She went after Iain and that caused him to get arrested. She feels gui ...more
I absolutely could not put these books down! JC Hannigan did a wonderful job bringing a rather forbidden love to life, and to top it all off, it was done in the first person! This, I feel, is a huge compliment to her as a reader can potentially get lost within the character as the story line progresses. Be sure when reading these books that you read Collide first, and then pick up Consumed. While I feel Consumed could be read as a stand alone, there were definitely some points that would have th ...more

In this story, Harlow has learned the error of her ways; however, the consequences still ache like fresh wounds. She still has strong feelings for Iain; however, someone else threatens to take over that special place in Harlow's heart. As she dredges up past relationships with several walks down memory lane, she can't help but wonder how a new relationship will help defeat her demons. This story is about her struggle to find peace.

"Consumed" is a sequel which probably should not be read as a sta
