***4 I need you in order for me to be WHOLE again STARS***
This is my first novel by Yara Greathouse, but it will not be my last.

This is the story of a group of friends and how they respond when one goes through a tragic situation.
Traxx has the life that every something man would love. He had great friends, a job he loved and his pick of willing and ready women. He was not looking to settle down, so the easier the girl the better, so he thought. He wasn’t naïve to Ciara’s feelings, but he had bee

3.75 Witness Guilt Stars

Some things are harder than they have to be. It's often people making things harder. They just can't let things go. And some times you don't want to make life it just is. The best you can hope for is a friend or two to get you through the hard times.

Traxx (great name) has had it pretty easy. Great job. Greater friends. And his pick of women. And he does pick them. One night at a time.

I'm not proud of it and some days I hate myself for the person I used to be.

This is one of those books that once you start reading, you want to continue until the end. This is Traxx and Ciara’s story; told in each of their POV’s.

Traxx has issues and as such he moves from woman to woman - “Sex and satisfaction were the ultimate goal.”

“There may be - possibly – only one exception. There’s this girl I have some…feelings for. Her name is Ciara Collins. I have known her for over two years. She is absolutely

A five star read.
I was given a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.

Traxx Maxwell's past has prevented him from getting into serious relationships and he prefers it that way.
All hell breaks lose one day when he witnesses something no one should ever have to witness.
He is broken inside and starts to become a person no one recognizes.
Ciara Collins is dating other guys and having fun while waiting for Traxx to quit his slutty ways and really notice her.

Where do I begin? Yara has done it again with another great read and amazing characters. Traxx and Ciara's story is just wow. Thats the only way I can describe it. I was pulled in from the beginning and after "the incident" happened I just couldn't stop reading because I needed to know if he would make it through or if he would fall into complete darkness pushing everyone away. Ciara is there to help and starts the BTB (Bring Traxx Back) project. This book is about more than just hot sex while w ...more

First read of a book by this author, and i really enjoyed it. Though this is the second book in the series it can be read as a standalone so do not panic :) . This book deals with a delicate subject matter and in a way that is very respectful. Traxx is a player no two ways to describe him, but the incident he experiences changes him and his friend Ciara has to help him see the light from the shade and to move on with his life before his troubles overcome him. I liked how this sstory dealt with f ...more

“I’m just not sure i am good enough for her. She’s a top shelf drink and i am a house poured shot.”

Dismantled is one of those books that you devour in one sitting and get mad when there isn't more to read. You don’t even notice that the whole world disappeared around you. The air gets filled with the sexual tension that is pouring from your kindle. You find yourself screaming JUST TELL EACH OTHER ALREADY. DEAR GOD JUST KISS HER. You find yourself wanting them to be together more than you’ve ever

I adore Yara Greathouse and her willingness to approach subjects that most others shy away from.
These days it seems that all anyone wants to read about it sex, and while her books do contain hot sexual encounters, it is not what the story is about.
These stories are about insecurities, love, overcoming fear and finding yourself.

These leading women are strong backbones for these men and I love it!

Oh where to begin?!? Traxx and Ciara's story is amazingly beautiful. This series is great example of strong women who help build up the men they love. Traxx is broken after "The Incident". And boy what a crazy "incident"! Ciara is there to help put him back together. The chemistry between Traxx and Ciara is off the charts and the sex scenes left my kindle smoking. I definitely recommend everyone pick up this new release and get to know the strong women of the Girls on Top Series and the smoking ...more

This is another great read about strong fabulous female characters from this author.

This is Ciara and Traxxs story. After The Incident Traxx is broken. It affects him in a big way and he pushes everyone away. Ciara refuses to be pushed away. Can she pull him out of the depths of desperation and help him?

Really beautiful story. Looking forward to reading more from this author.

“The tragedies of our past are stepping stones for us to reach the happy endings of our tomorrows.”

WOW. That’s all I can say; just wow.

I don’t even know where to begin. I am so overcome by the emotions and journey ‘Dismantled’ takes us on that I am at a complete loss for words.

Yara has taken a subject that a lot of people find difficult to both write and talk about, and delivers it in a sensitive, heart-breaking and yet beautiful way.

Dismantled is a story of love and friendship and finding a way back from darkness.

This is the story of close friends, Ciara and Traxx, and how they found their way into each others arms. But being in love with each other wasn’t easy. Traxx had a past that messed up his mind about women, a past that made him wrapped up his heart for safe keeping, far far away from all women. Not having a heart to give, made Traxx into a

Overall Rating: 4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆

In Yara Greathouse's novel, Dismantled you will find a story filled with passion, love, friendship and turmoil. I experienced deep feelings for the characters and connected with them as if I was part of their story. The author has a way of drawing you in and keeping you mesmerized until the very end!

Ciara Collins is a beautifully constructed character, whose heart is bigger than she is. She loves completely and holds her friends close to her, always being there w

When I first start reading this story I thought it was going to be your typical I’m in love with my bestfriend and they don’t know it. Don’t get me wrong it was an I love my bestfriend but it wasn’t a typical story at all. It took me by surprise quite a bit. If you want a mix of damage with love here’s the book for you.

Recovery is not always easy….

Traxx Maxwell has been running from his demons since he was a kid. Known for his one night stands, he makes no secret – and no apologies – for his refusal to make any sort of a commitment. Events as a child shaped his behaviour today and he was just fine with things going on as they have been despite the concerns of his friends. All seemed fine until faced to deal head on with what seems like a direct result of his behaviour. Traumatized even more Traxx is not dealin

Dismantled by Yara Greathouse is Captivating! Emotional! Overwhelming! It keeps you guessing. It's a story of real life problems and it really makes you think!

Traxx Maxwell had a rough time in middle school which affected his ability to trust. As he got older, he became well-known for his lack of relationships and one night stands. He felt a little more for Ciara, though. His friends warned him to stay away in fear that he would only hurt her and ruin their friendship circle.

What do you do when your world is nothing but a sea of nameless faces? Women are a dime a dozen and Traxx never lacks in women but the one woman he wants, is out of his reach because he feels he doesn't deserve her.

Ciara knew when she first meet Traxx that he wasn't anything but trouble, yet that doesn't stop the feelings she has for him. Ciara knows that Traxx is drowning in himself but doesn't know how to pull him out and the events that tip him over the edge leaves her finding a way

Don t get the raiting for this book. The premise was good but the execution was bad. So many roll your eyes out moments. The guy had a traumatic experience when he was young that made him into a manwhore but I felt no connection or simphaty for him. For me it was just weak writing, you are told to feel sorry for the Hero bc this happened to him but the description of the events is so short and with no feelings I didn t think it justified his behaviour in adulthood. Their friends were ridiculous, ...more

I loved Traxx and Ciara's story. It is about strength and love, and how friends and family band together to help their loved one recover emotionally, after he witnesses a tragedy. Traxx used to be a one night stand only type of person, but when he witnesses something no one should have to see, it changes him. He tries to push his friends away and just hide and wallow in his guilt and pity. Ciara and Traxx's friends and brother would not let him be destroyed. Ciara was so strong, and would not le ...more

My first from this author and for the most part it was a good story. I always love a friends to lovers kind of book and knowing there was definitely chemistry and a bit of a spark between Traxx and Ciara kept me going.

However, it felt too repetitive at times and there were many sections I skimmed over since it seemed too long to get these two together. Although the twist of a horrific incident completely caught me off guard and certainly set our resident manwhore in Traxx, straight, I'm not sure

A really great story.. was hooked from the prologue.
Traxx and Ciara's story is not an easy one, far from it, but I loved it.
Loved the characters and the pace..obviously I didn't like the creepers or "the situation " that forced Traxx to change, but what happened after was such a great story..about friendship and love, life and how to learn to cope and learn how to live again!
Since this was the first book I read of this author I will definitely read the first in the series!!!!
