Hazel
I never would've guessed my life would lead me where I am today, wedged between a stalker and a stranger in the midst of a drug war that I'm unsure of how I entered. One wants to hurt me, the other seems to want to heal me, but there's more that he's after and I don't know if I can give him what he seeks.

What a struggle this book was! I almost abandoned it a few times but was curious to see how it ended. The best part of this book was the prologue. It was so gripping that I had to keep reading to see what was going to happen.

"Pain is a strange thing. Some people know it well, others don't. Some can endure it, others can't. But there comes a point when the pain goes beyond insufferable; when it no longer hurts. You feel dead inside. Those silent prayers begging for it all to end are answered."

This story is the biggest friggin surprise in all of creation! I had no clue this story would pack such a powerful punch!!

After four unsuccessful dates, Hazel attempts to let Paul down gently but dude is cray cray and refuses to take no for an answer. Enters the mystery dude....Cash.

Oh my dayz I've just finished this awesome book and I'm speechless. I read half of this last night and all day today it was calling out to me until I was able to sit and finish it. Now I'm sitting here thinking I need to write a review before I jump into book two and I know my words are not gonna do this book justice.

Firstly why has it taken me so long to read this. I really feel my friends should have said 'hey you need to read Snap by Tara Dawn'.

Hazel is a strong determined and feisty female.

DAAAAMN!
Hazel is a hardworking single woman that lives on her own. She's worked at the local diner/bar for several years and pretty much considers it her second home. She's reserved and can't find it in herself to be rude or nasty towards anybody. She's a sweetheart but a terrible housekeeper!
Cady is Hazel's bestie who is a red headed spitfire (total opposite of Hazel)! Chick is crazy as hell!
These two girls together are trip!

In Tara Dawn's SNAP we meet Hazel, Cash and Phil.

I'll first start with how incredibly unique this story line was. Tara made a twisted tale that involves three amazingly developed characters who are all linked in some way (you will never guess how until - BAM - it hits you right in the face).

I really liked Hazel. I felt that she was extremely relatable and how she dealt with the situation was realistic.

Cash, so help me God I want to bite that man. He was absolutely delicious. She drew him out per

So this book has a lot going on in it. It wasn’t bad it was one of those books that was not for me. It wasn’t necessarily the characters but more so the setting and the age of the characters. Im not particularly fond of that age of drama and there is way too much going on here for me. This book is not for the faint of heart.

Wow!

When I started this book I was sure how to feel about it. The story, the setting and the characters were far different from anything I'd ever read before. Add in the fact that this author was new to me and I didn't know if I could trust where she was taking me. The story is raw, the characters are stripped of artifice and the setting felt so real. Having grown up in a small town, it was easy for to relate. Still I felt unsettled but kept reading, albeit, with a bit of trepidation. Now this

Captivating and Deranged!!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! The author, Tara Dawn tells the story in a manner that you are continuously learning more about the characters as the story goes on. This aids in the dynamics of the story and enables the reader to become immersed in the tale.

I don't wish to give away the whole story but there is a demented whacked out stalker, a heroine and a hero (who when you get to the depth of the story; may not be that pristine hero that is usually affiliated with t

This book...I mean...WOW! I have so many feelings on this. You get pulled into the book from the very first line. I read this book in about 2 days. I could not put it down! I really like Hazel. She is strong and works hard, plus she keeps her apartment a mess and I can totally understand that. Who has time to clean these days. I bring this up because I feel like Tara did a great job making this story realistic. I grew up in a small town in the south and the description of this town reminded me s

Insane!

Hazel goes on a couple dates with Phil. The dude is nuts!! He is a creepy stalker. Hazel met Cash who is trying to save her. This is definitely dark! Can't wait to read second book.

JESUS! What just happened?

This book... this book... it... I'm... I want to crawl into a hole and hide. Maybe throw up. Maybe both at the same time.

DISCLAIMER: this is not dark romance, folks. Not to my definition. This is straight up thriller. There are some sexy times so it could arguably be considered an erotic thriller, but the other parts are so horrific that it is hard to even remember the sexy times.

I think I need a shower. And a hug. And a drink.

This book is an intense look at the world of street drugs. It looks at it from the perspective of the innocent girl caught up in it unknowingly, a guy she has dated a few times who is in the middle of it and her hero.

Soooo.... I am a run-on book reader. I typically go from one book directly into another, however, this amazing book sucked me in and made me see fury!!!! Fury I never felt before during a book reading. I'll talk a tiny about the cliffhanger because if you hate steep cliffhangers and cannot cope - don't read this book. By saying that.... i simply mean.. read the damn book. It's a risk you just have to take!

This was a very dark and upsetting read, there is drugs, non consensual --- and disturbing graphic violence. If this bothers you, do not purchase this book as the Author has warned you and this reader has as well.

The Author did a fantastic job setting up the story, the main characters are likeable and human. Hazel is an independent woman working full time as a supervisor in a bar/restaurant. She and her BF Cady are working to pay their way and a lot of the story takes place in the bar they both

Stuck between a vicious, disgusting, absoutely horrific stalker, and a handsome, dark and mysterious Stranger who has saved her several times, she is forced to suffer all because her stalker is psycho.

This was a great book, dark and suspenseful to the very end. I'm still wondering as it does end with a cliffhanger and I cannot wait to read the next book!

This is the story of Hazel, Cash and Phil. Hazel is a smart, strong, stand on her own feet kind of woman. She dates a guy named Phil who turns out to be crazy. Their 4th date is a disaster all around and when she avoids Phil after that point, he becomes even more obsessed with her. Enter Cash, a mysterious, sexy man who always seems to be in t

4.5 Stars!

I received an ARC of Snap written by Tara Dawn. Another new author to me and I am glad I received this ARC. I will say this book covers some issue that might cause some triggers for some. If drug use, sexual assault/stalking is something you can't handle then I would stay away from this book, but if those things don't bother you then I would highly recommend you getting this book.
Snap is the story of Hazel and what happens to her when she goes on a couple of dates with the wrong guy.

Review by Whitney at The Club
I received an ARC for an honest review.

I love dark romances. The gritty, hard and near impossible situations that most can't handle but leaves you with strong characters in the end have m begging for more. Snap was a slow start. The build up to the biggest event seemed to take forever. I wanted it to move faster but I believe the author wanted you to connect with the characters and get a better idea of who they were. There were situations that irritated me, things t

Snap is FULL of suspense and surprises. It is told in 3 different POVs so you get inside three different heads. Hazel is hardworking and loves her friends. Cash, I'm not to sure about yet, I want to say he is the hero in this series but I'm not sure. And Phil is crazy like hide in your closet and watch you s ...more

If you can handle reading dark reads that involve drug use and rape you will enjoy this book. This book takes u non a roller coaster of emotions and keep you in suspense as to what is going to happen next.

We meet Hazel Thompson who us a simple girl who works for Maggies May Tavern. It's here sge meets Phil but Phil has a obsession with Hazel and constantly asks her out on a date till she agrees. She eventually agrees but this one sim

Snap by Tara Dawn


Twisted and Evil!!!
I haven’t read this type of genre before and I now know why!! Not every story is for every reader and that’s how it should be. Variety is the spice of life or so they say.
Phil is a junkie and a very, very bad guy. He’s spoilt and rich and not the hero of the story. The real hero is just as unexpected at least for me. This isn’t your typical billionaire/ alpha story. It’s dark and twisted, it may not even be to your liking.
Blood and gore abound as do drugs and
