This may sound silly but for some reason the print of each word in the book was pleasant to my eyes. I think the font and the yellow tinge paper helped a lot. I read so many books I was blessed with this one, my eyes thank you! Now let's get on with the review, EXCELLENT. I noticed right off the bat how easy the story moved along without a hesitation or pause, no confusion. Addison, Addison, what a character of beauty, brain, intelligence and yes, a slush (just saying :D) I guess men are not the ...more

3.5 stars,

This book was more exciting than the first, would've given it a 4 stars except one scene pissed me off. This definitely reminded me of 50 shades (not the BDSM) but the whole rich man, buys her clothes, driver, etc. (I love me a rich alpha so I don't mind ;) )

(Spoilers ahead)
When Liam advances Addison's career through his connections. Like Addison said, it's unfair she got opportunities while she's been there for months whereas others have been there for years. It just irked me that i

Overall Rating :: 2.5-3 stars
Series :: Book two of the Breathless series
Hero/Heroine :: Liam/Addison
POV :: Brief prologue from Liam, the rest is from Addison.
Cliffhanger :: Yes.
HEA :: (view spoiler)

I really want to like this book series. I really do. But the grammatical and spelling issues are too frequent, and the personality of the characters is too limited. Not to mention, the issues between Liam and Addison seem tacked on, or are resolved after a few

OK, Liam and Addison seem to have things figured out. Until Liam's past come back to bite them in the butt. Another cliffhanger ending with a super biotch added for good measure. Addison still seems on the whiny side, but is losing it somewhat. Liam is too good to be true which means he really isn't. Addison flip-flops between totally in and totally out. Liam continues to send flowers with meaning to fix everything. There really isn't much different in book 2, just different names and differe

Great 2nd book

I loved the first book and couldn't wait to get my hands on the 2nd. In this book you go further into Liam and Addie's relationship. I'm not gonna lie at the end when he started to act all cold I already knew what/who was causing it. The ending was a cliff hanger but luckily the 3rd book is out.

A very good book. I loved it. I liked that Liam keeps surprising Addison. Also that Addison has a few surprises of her own. I can't wait to read the last book in this series.

I enjoyed the second part to this trilogy. Addy was a little more annoying in this one, but I could understand how she felt. The writing was strong and the pacing of the story was good.

This book truly took me for a ride! Loved the writing in the book and had all the great elements I love in a book. Unfortunately the book did end on a cliffhanger and forced me to read the next book to know what happens.

Taken is the continuation of Addison and Liam's romance. There was a pretty big surpise for Addison at the end of Consumed (book 1). Will Addison be able to forgive Liam after she finds out he is really the rich business mogul she's heard so much of? Liam has a dark side, will Addison ever be able to really know all of Liam?

This is a great romance if you love serials and you can't help but fall in love with the characters. Definitely have to give 4.5 smooches for this. I love Liam! He is wicked

What a book even better than the first. Addison she is just one of my favorite characters she is so strong and intelligent she truly does give her whole heart. Liam he is not just rich but hot and only wants to be wanted for who he is not what he has. Michelle I know what she's up to. I wanna smack her in the face lol. I love how this story is written and how each book leaves me wanting more, I just hope the next book ends the way I want. I can't wait to dive into Released.

This is the continuation of Addison and Liam's story. If you did not fall for Liam in the first book then this one will definitely have you hooked. Hot persistent rich former playboy Liam repeatedly professes his love for Addison while showing his romantic side. In this book Addison seems a bit bratty and a little whiny. The end of this tale will have you clamoring for the final book. Can't wait to see to see how the story of this couple will end.

Holy cliffhanger.

I enjoyed this one a lot more than the first. It was more believable and drama filled. At one point you just feel bad for Liam and Addison that everything keeps getting in their way. Usually it's themselves, but the ending in this one.....just wow.

Not to mention if a Man like Liam flew across the country for me, well I wouldn't have put up a fight like Addison.

Ready for the third!!!

Absolutely loved the second instalment of this series. Wow, of course it ends in another bloody cliffhanger. It's hot, Addison I so wanted to slap at times. This book frustrated the hell out of me. Feeling very emotional at the moment. So happy I can go straight into the final book of Addison & Liam's story. Oh I hope they get their H.E.A ...more

Needless to say, the ending has left my heart in my stomach and my stomach in my throat :'(. Like the tension and anticipation though and truly hope Michelle gets what's coming to her in Released!

Excellent Series

I am enjoying this series. My only con is that Addison is chasing Liam now and I wish she would just walk away. Let Liam see what he is losing.
