***4.5 STARS*** Talk about angst. I am emotionally spent after reading this, and I still don’t know how to feel about it after it ended because it leaves the reader wondering and guessing of whether there is an eternal HEA which is hard for me because I read romances exactly for the reason of a HEA.

A.J. Edwards does not like Chloe. He growls at her every time she comes near which makes it difficult because he is the best man and she is the maid of honor to their best friend’s we

God damn it!!! I thought that i loved the first book but this one was amazing, wonderfull, extraordinary!!! I don't know how else i can describe it!!!
The only sure thing is that it will remain with me for a long time!!!
This story was so devastating, heart-wrecking, but at the same time so beautiful!!!

I never wanted to end this book... I could live with the company of A.J. and Chloe for the rest of my life!!!

I should have known better. After having conflicting feelings about the first book, I ignored my instinct and requested this.

Bad idea.

The drama llama was too much. Too much. Everything that could happened in a book happened in this book. Not even kidding. It was just TOO MUCH. Plus, I really I hate one of the plot device used by the author. I wish I had known because that alone was enough to kill any enjoyment I had left for this book.

5 stars if you like bittersweet ends...

This was a love story too beautiful to be true until it wasn’t, until it started to be sad and sadder... There really was a lot of drama. I can deal with drama if I have a happy end eventually. Or in some cases, I can be OK with a very sad ending if I am prepared for it, you know some books end in a painfully beautiful way and you just love them no matter what. But, being the “black or white” girl I am who doesn’t like “shades of gray”, I don’t like bitters

Personally I feel like this book should come with Trigger Warnings of :Domestic Violence and mentions of Rape and difficult childhoods.

Angst in this book is 10 times more than that in Book 1,which Isn't a huge issue for me.It's the instability of the plot that deducted one of the stars from the final rating.The plot started off strong but ended,a little crazily to me.

Make Me Sin is the second book in J.T. Geissinger Bad Habit series. This is the first book I've read by this author and I NEED to go back and read the first in this series. Not because I felt I was missing something in this book, but because I fell in LOVE with these characters and the writing. I feel that you can definitely read Make Me Sin without reading the first book (Sweet As Sin) and not miss a thing.

This one was filled with drama after drama and super angsty. I DEVOURED it. Sometimes when there's too many subplots, the book can get pretty long and i skim through pages. I personally think this author did a good job especially with the pacing. As usual, her writing was impeccable. I shed a few tears at the end, being as shocked as the heroine was.

In a nutshell, Chloe and AJ share a mutual, unwanted attraction. Being that their best friends Nico and Kat are planning a wedding, its onl

Oh, this ain’t gonna be easy. I already see that I am in the minority here.

FIRSTLY, I am a fan of this author. I, however, am not a fan of this particular book.
For the first 30-40% I was an invested reader and then this book took a turn for the unbelievable and insensitive.

I am an older (40’s) reader. So NA can be a bit of a hit or miss with me. All the angst and hyped up drama can be somewhat over the top. My issues aren’t with the writing or subject matter.

Most of my issues are spoilers so

Hop on the emotional roller coaster!

Our heroine is Chloe - a mid-twenty girl from rich parents who owns a flower shop. When we meet her she is still with her boyfriend Eric (let me say right away - there is no cheating). She's sweet, straight forward, loyal and a good girl all around.

A.J. is so fantastically multi-layered, it's hard to describe him without spoiling too much. He is an enigma and on this journey we peel back layer by layer of his personality. He is distant, bad
This is my first read for 2016 and it is a winner in my opinion.

So basically those are my feelings at the end of the book.
Now all good views start at the beginning and I like to think that I am a honest person and at least I try to get straight to the point in saying that my feelings for this book ran deep. I despised the first 25 % of this book and I nearly gave up I’m sorry to say that so my sincerest apologies to Ms. Geissinger.

Chloe was the newest addition to the Desperate Doormats. I tried to give her the benefit of the doubt but she let me down and kept on going further and further in the pit. I hoped that she'd at least grow some sort of a backbone, dump him on his ass, and leave him there to suffer in his self-inflicted misery. She's also partly at fault too for getting herself involved with him when he had shown her nothing but disdain. I understand she got her feelings hurt because he was mean to her but I don't ...more

This is my second book by this author, wait, 3rd. I just didn’t finish the other one I started. Yeah, everyone loves this author and this series has high praises, and that is why I stuck with it and tried to finish.

This book curb-stomped my soul. I literally got zero sleep for reading it. My husband officially thinks I'm insane because he woke up to the image of me snot-nosed and weeping at 5 in the morning. I just COULD NOT STOP READING.

The ironic part is, I jumped into this series with this book. I haven't even read book one (or three, for that matter) and now I'm actually scared to do so bec

5 Very intense "Love will never die" Stars!

This book was so intense. It was mysterious, compelling, heartbreaking, tragic, angst/longing filled, and beautiful. I loved it. I loved every bit of it.

AJ was broody and dark. He was emotionally damaged and just going through the motions of life. Until he met Chloe. She triggers emotions in him he is not prepared to handle. So what does he do? He acts like a complete jacka**. Until he simply cannot stay away from Chloe and gives in to his desire. He be

I just have one thing to matter the plot, the extravagance of it, the deep end dark of the story, it always amazes me how J.T. Geissinger evokes the widest range of emotions through my process of reading.

this story ain't no different...

I won't go into any plot descriptions, cause it's impossible to do BUT if you follow my reviews then you know I do my appreciation of the read material in honest and the most apprehensive way, even when I don't say much.. LOL

"Life's too short to miss out on anything, even if it's pain."

This is one of those cases where I wish I was allowed to give more than five stars. It was so good it needs extra to convey how much I loved it. Yes, A.J. Is a rockstar, and that's what led me to read this series. I had no idea what yummy goodness I was gonna find when I turned that first page. Now I'm thrilled to have a new author to add to my favorites list. This is the second book in the series, so it's confirmation that she's no

Please, read reviews with the spoilers. It's so tragic it's funny. And the old trope of all times. Who can say what it is??
Call me mean (I am a cold heart person lol) but I could picture the violins being played sadly in the background like the ones in the Titanic movie (even if they say it was real the band played until the end I had a good laugh out of it. Buy I didn’t like that movie anyway. See? Cold blood. Lol)

Well after the disappointment of the first book the big draw for me with this second book in the series was that "Sebastian York" was a narrator, and he was for about a whole 10 minutes of a 12+ hour book. BUT I really liked the complex story line of this one and I liked the chemistry that A.J and Cloe have together but once again the narrator Teri Clark-Linden did a great characterization for Cloe, but unfortunately made A.J sound like a drunk vampire. ...more

The heroine is a cheating witch who calls out other man's name while she and her boyfriend were in the heat of passion. Cheater. Except, it's not cheating is it? Because it shouldn't be called cheating! He wasn't even inside of her! Yeah right.

Also, instead of ending things with her boyfriend properly, she went straight to the Hero. LOL. Aw that's cute. :):):):):):)

Chloe is pretty sure that AJ hates her. AJ however is hiding his true feelings because he feels his past makes him unworthy. There are some other interesting aspects to AJ and his professional field that make him quite unique. Once they get beyond the initial obstacles what these frenemies have is solid. I really enjoyed this read.

ARC received in exchange for an honest review.

Gut wrenching!! I had thought that Sweet as Sin was a killer book but then I read this one and I feel totally wasted emotionally. I am not a crier but this one was hard to read in places because I could not see through my tears. Any author who can provoke that kind of emotion from their reader has done an outstanding job writing their book. This is not a total downer because there are some very well written areas that leave you laughing out loud as well.

This second installment of Bad Habit series features the band’s drummer A.J. Edwards and Chloe Carmichael, best friend to Kat (from book 1) and florist to her wedding. Their story has an enemies-to-lovers trope. Though a typical theme, J.T. Geissinger kept the story interesting and exciting. She hooked me in deeper and deeper with each twist of the story. I couldn’t put this book down.

Chloe and A.J. met in the last book, and even then, you can tell there’s something brewing between them alre
Oy vey.

A.J. is a badass drummer and has been giving sweet Chloe crap since the moment they met. Committed to nice guy cop Eric, Chloe can’t understand why AJ is so darn mean.

Thrown together because of their friends’ wedding, AJ lowers his guard and let’s Chloe in. The fallout from their chemistry, the nice guy cop’s exit, and what turns out to be AJ’s unbelievably horrific past is where the fight between pain and true love comes in. NO CHEATING.

This had a lot going on, push and pull (which in this case it worked and didn't irritate me), a damaged by his past hero, a stalker, a nutzo ex and even (view spoiler)and more which I could cope with but sadly there was a spanner thrown in the works towards the end that I didn't feel was necessary at all, it all got too much and overdone.

So. Much. Drama. This series is kind of like a telenovela. Geissinger packs in more plotlines, painful histories, and unhinged characters lurking in the corners ready to wreak havoc than one book can really handle. But it makes for good reading — and if it produces a few eye rolls, they're accompanied by tears. So. Many. Feels. I'm actually scared to read the next one because so much was telegraphed here. But I will because I've been looking forward to Grace's story. And because a good soap oper ...more
