I started with L.K. Collins's book Just The Sex: 40-plus steamy sex scenes. It starts with Latch sex scenes and after reading scenes with Abby, I needed to know more about this couple. So I started reading Latch book which is first book and must be read before Abby.
Apparently their story is based on real events; they are authors's friends. Pace was normal to quick, a lot of drama.

"4,75" stars from me!!!

Wow what a closure besides the continuation of the story which was breathtaking especially after the huge cliffhanger. The thing that totally captured me was the epilogue.. really it was very sweet and unique and afterwards left me with a big smile on my lips.

The final installment was an intense emotional roller-coaster with twists, wow moments and hot explicit scenes, the author did an exquisite job delivering a strong story with the ability to make you want to get in

Abby is the conclusion to Latch. You have to read Latch before Abby or you will be extremely lost.

Abby has left everything she has ever known behind and taken a leap of faith. She's found her once in a lifetime love in Latch. With Abby gone Latch is beyond broken. Abby is his everything. She's changed him so completely he has no desire to be the person he was before her. If Abby is no longer in this wo

ABBY is the conclusion to LK Collins's book LATCH. This woman has again didn't fail to amaze me!

LK Collins writes stories that will grip all your emotions and make your heart stop at every flip of the book's page. I want to share the plot with you guys, however, I'll be spoiling the entire book if I do that. So some tip for you, read LATCH then fall in love with that hot scorching hot escort, then read ABBY.

Abby is the conclusion to LK's book Latch and lived up to everything Latch had to offer and then some. Latch ripped my heart out, shredded it, and then ran off. Abby was able to mend it, then leave me with even more feels when I thought I was spent.
Devastation follows this couple from day one and just keeps delivering blow after blow. Just when you think Latch and Abby are in the clear, yet another shoe drops, but through it all, you root for th

Heartbreakingly AWESOME! - 5+++++ stars

This is the second book in the Latch and Abby storyline. At the end of the first book, Latch and Abby had just been run off the road by her soon to be ex-husband and Latch wasn't able to go to the hospital with her for multiple reasons. Latch has his grandma go to the hospital to check on Abby and the baby while he is dealing with the police.

After reading Latch, and more especially the unbelievably EVIL way that L.K. Collins ended that book, she picks you up and throws you right back into the angst with Abby!

Latch is probably one of THE most complicated, real characters that I have ever had the pleasure to read! His thoughts and emotions sent me on such a roller coaster ride that I still feel dizzy (and the book hangover is very real, as well!) The intensity of his feelings for Abby were gl

Abby by L.K. Collins picks up right where Latch left off. Abby is in the hospital fighting for her life. She finally wakes up from being in a coma for weeks, and I swear it is one thing after another for both she and Latch to try and deal with. Will they ever catch a break?

There were so many struggles for Abby and Latch to overcome and they did it with such strength and will leave you in awe of such a strong and enduring relationship. You definitely don't want to miss the conclusion of this romance. Ov ...more

Abby is the conclusion to Latch. The two stories weave an intense story of unexpected love.
In Latch, we fell in love with the sexy New York escort as he navigates his unexpected and overwhelming feelings for Abby. In Abby, we further fall in love with Latch through his unwavering support and need for Abby.
LK Collins wrote an intense story of raw need, new love that is tested at every turn of the page. Collins mixes the sweet with the sexy and a dash of humor. She keeps the emotions raw and true

I've been reading LK's book from the very beginning. Each different in it own way. I can say that Abby is the first book that got so emotional, I needed tissues. And I loved every word that I read!

Latch and Abby really tug at your heart in this book! Their story is emotional and you feel for this couple. grab those tissues!!

The most beautiful tears

Latch and Abby... I don’t even know how to put into words the emotions I went through reading this story. This couple and the trials and tribulations they endured and overcome was one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever read. And they caused the most beautiful tears. I know that I have now officially become a fan of this author for life. The way the words flowed were so awe inspiring. It takes an artist with a special mind and a true gift to do that. I’m grateful to ha

This is the second book to Latch. Latch and Abby have been through so much, that you don't think there could be more. Oh wait. It does happen. Some one from Latch's past comes forward with news that could destroy what Latch and Abby have conquered so far. Can these two get through this hurdle? Need to read. Great story, great series.

This book was part 2 of a series. You really would need to read Latch by LK Collins to really get into the story and feel what the author is trying to tell you.
Abby was a great continuation and was an emotional roller coaster throughout the entire book. Everytime you turn around, something else was going on.

The love Abby and Latch shared was unlike any love. They literally were meant to be together and nothing could tear them apart. Latch's clients, Abby's husband, no

I ripped through Latch like it was a glass of water on a hot day, so when I received Abby, I could barely contain myself. I ripped into it looking for relief, for answers, to be able to know that Abby was okay and that they would get the ending they deserved. I was not disappointed. Though I did think some things were predictable they were done so well that I didn’t care. The tension was palpable and the joy, beautiful.

They go to the hospital and learn that Abby is still alive but waiting for her to wake up. Days go by with little improvement on her condition, but Latch stays hopefully. After having breakfast with his father, he starts to take care of his himself. He changes clothes, he brushes h

As the continuation to Latch, Abby brings back the angst between these two people who want nothing more than to finally get that happily ever after they’ve been searching for.

We start off right where Latch ended, once again being held captive to the hurt and desperation Latch feels at thinking the worst.
