He broke my heart.
I crushed his faith.
Now he's back, daring me to go one more round with him.
We're older now, all grown up, but the pull between us hasn't weakened. It's more intense than ever.
I hate him, but I'm drawn to him, to the darkness, to the man buried deep inside the monster.
He despises me, but he wants me. I'm the one that got away, and he's hell bent on making

Oct 09, 2017 rated it really liked it
I really enjoyed the first book but this one was a headache, I hated the first half but loved the second half!

The hero (Noah) was perfect for me, he was really sweet & caring towards the heroine even though she acted like a child at times but he really did love her, he went out of his way to please her and even risked his own life!

What I hated the most is when the hero gets drugged by his step-sister’s friend (Reese), she ends up raping him while he is unconscious, I don’t understand why nothin

In a way I wished I hadn't read 'Always 1.5' and just jumped into this one, because it goes right back to after that nail biting fight, the car crash, him getting jumped on (raped) by Reece his stepsisters minion whilst under the influence of painkillers, out of it completely, to the txt message and Teagan seeing them together, not realising what had really gone down..
To Teagan and Hope (who had her own set of problems) ran away..Then it jumped..Years go by and neither see the guys that hurt the
Re-read with no regrets!

Just as I finished TREACHEROUS again after all these years, I gobbled it up this time around as well, not yet full enough of NOAH! I had to revisit one of my all time favorite young adult ALPHA MALES, the cougar I am has no shame. *wink*

"I never realized a man’s heart could love as hard as this.
This was an insane kind of love.
One I never thought I would have.

God, i think that i became for once again an addict...
And Noah Messina is my new fuckin' GOD!!!
I loved him so much in his teenage years, but at his 25, he is stunning!!!

The thing is that i don't know how i will survive without the next book, but thank God that this story didn't have the mother of the cliffys as the previous book!!!

Shelves: okay-ish
First off in really miffed this ended on a cliff hanger. I was really looking forward to this story and hate it when h and h hook up with other people during their separation. I'm glad they are together again it just felt like a whole book of drama mixed in with other people when they could have sorted their problems out ages ago. If you love someone surely no one else will do. I was dissapointed in Noah for going off with other women so easily. ...more

So Worth the Wait!

This book continued where the first ended and allowed us readers to fully understand what happened in the background to Noah and Teagan in Treacherous to cause them to separate and hold grudges against each other for years. In Thorn, the character's evolved, the passion grew hotter and more explosive, new issues appear and a reunion between to lovers drew them closer together. I highly recommend this as a must read and can't wait for the last book!

Possibly the most difficult review I've ever done

Not because it's difficult to tell you how fantastic this book is but simply because I don't want to give any spoilers. The joy of Chloe Walsh's book is that they are gritty and you never feel like there's a guaranteed HEA, but providing you've read Treacherous this is definitely a book worth reading, just keep the tissues handy.

What can I say about this book???....
Couldn't put it down, lapped it up from page 1.
A must that you read the first book "Trecherous" as this picks up and carries on the story of Noah and Teagan and their fight to find each other.
Great characters, great story line, and great author.

I've been waiting for this for months and Chloe didn't disappointment! It's a sequel so I suggest you read Treacherous.

It's full of angst, heartache and love. You'll be spinning by the end from the fast paced emotions it causes.

All the characters are well written and deeper than most stories I've read. I definitely recommend this and all of Chloes books.

Arrrggghhhh, cliffy, beware! I loved it as much as the first one. Second chance romance, although the main reason it's a second chance romance is just freaking retarded. Come on Teagan, after all the shit you went through in the first book, you can't get over this stupid conflict. Poor Noah,,, I felt very bad for him. I love you dude. ...more
Thorn = angst in spades!

And now we wait for more Teagen and Noah.

Side thought, I think Lucky and Hope should hook hell with Jordan!

Thorn is my favourite Carter Kids book in the series followed closely by Treacherous. I absolutely loved this book and was completely engrossed in the story and refused to put it down. In this we get prison time with Noah Messina and readers are introduced to his cell mate Lucky, who I have fallen in love with and pray he gets his own book!

Whilst Noah is doing his time behind bars, his anger, heartache and longing for Teagan his “Thorn” never ceases. Despite what s

Don't you hate that? You know, when you're all jazzed up for the second book and nothing gets juicy until the end?? Well this book suffered from a bad case of the "blah! blah! blah's!!!"

This was a really disappointing follow up from the second book. It just when on and on about their uneventuful lives before they meet up again 5 years later. But what I disliked the most her was the heroine for me. She was just way too annoying and sort of lackluster for me. Her life seems completely devoid of an
The drama continues.....

This book would get a higher rating if it had been edited. I don't think it was. There were some typos, and worse---the dread repeat conversations.

You know, I think at this point I have to continue this series just to find out what the fuck is going on with Jordan.

Let me address the reviews where peeps are disappointed because Noah slept with other women when he was estranged from Teagan (aka Thorn).

While I agree that a scenario like that can leave a very nasty aftertaste (to the degree that I haven't finished books where the H is an unrepentant hoe and the h "waits" for him like a masochistic moron) this situation isn't like that at all!

First of all, Noah and Teagan have only been together for 2 months yet despite the brevity of their relationship, they

So there is a minor thing that I really dislike in no matter what book.
So the H and h are apart for seven years and when he can he is taking all the fangirls up on their offers, but when the h takes up on a "fanboy" than it's a war.. So how is this fair or normal? Or is that just my weird mind that thinks like that. but aside that it was all okay for me during their sex adventures they weren't together.

I liked it, but I really am irritated easily by Teagan. Grow a pair and talk instead of runnin

This was a good follow up to book one, I didnt like the beginning, to many questions of why would you do that? With Teagan and Noah's actions. The last half of book makes up for it. What a ride. Now, JD is back.....oh no!!!!!

I know this is a shorter review than normal that was because a lot of crap happened in the real world and the start and finish of this book is months in between instead of a day or two.

4.5 stars

This sequel is set seven years after the ending of the first book, Treacherous, with flashbacks to the past to fill in the gaps.

"He's the love of my life...He is everything and I love him...all the time. It won't go away."

I found Teagan to be just as stubborn as she always was, never giving Noah a chance to explain what really happened, all those years ago, even though she still loves him and hasn't really moved on, in spite of everything. Festering in his anger, desire and love for her

The first book in this series was such a adrenaline rush that I dived straight into this one. I craved more of Noah Messina!

Unfortunately though, as is the case with many brilliant books before it, the second instalment just didn’t hit the spot.

The majority of the book switched between Noah and Teagan’s point of view and gave us an insight as to what they had each been doing for the last seven years. As it turns out it was not much. Nada. Teagan did nothing of substance except for moping aroun
