Tyler Grace was many things.
A killer. A myth. An outcast. A hero.
My prince.

My childhood and innocence were stolen when I was kidnapped at five years old. For eleven years I clung to my childhood fairytale books, waiting for the prince I hoped would someday save me and carry me off to a happily ever after.

I had no idea my savior would come in the form of a scarred recluse,

➦This is a beautiful read about two broken people helping each other heal and finding home in one another. If you enjoy emotional books then give this one a look. I read it in one sitting and couldn't actually believe it was over when I got to the end. I was wishing for an epilogue but there was an option to sign up and receive one via e-mail. Did so and now am patiently waiting for it.

It was all about Tyler for me. He was EVERYTHING!! It's not to say that I didn't like Holly or that I wasn't sympathetic to her plight because I definitely was. She was kidnapped at the age of 8 and eventually rescued by Ty 10 years later. So I felt that. Her and Ty were "tied" to each other in more ways than one.

"She's everything. My past. My present. My future. My twin flame - the one who shares the path of my soul."

She was Ty's perfect match, in every way. Their slow build that evolved fr

Tyler was scarred, wild, and rough but Holly could not find it in her heart to fear him. For in his penetrating gaze she sensed a savage pain she longed to soothe. Holly was facing her own demons too and suffering from PTSD and other long-term effects generated by her long kidnapping by a paedophile.

“In Tyler’s eyes, I see the man behind the scars and the mask. The man he was before life tore him apart and drove him to hide in the woods. Before some tragedy made him a man who could strangle

I won't be rating this book because I honestly don't know how to rate it.
I'm really torn about it and can't seem to make up my mind.. 😢

I felt like the heroine was really too broken and I honestly don't know how she'll be able to be with hero after everything that has happened to her.

Their first kiss doesn't happen until 68%
They don't actually have sex until 98%

this was really sweet and so completely different than the first book in the series. carian cole does such a fantastic job at fleshing out her characters and making their stories feel real. i honestly feel lucky to have discovered a new favorite romance author so late in the year (and after a pretty good handful of disappointing romances lately).

Pretty good.

I didn't read it for the "hot" scenes, and you shouldn't either. There is a bit, but that's not the focus of this story.

It's about two broken people who find each other, through fate, karma, whatever you want to call it. He's been burned, scarred by broken glass, vocal cords damaged. She's been held by a pedophile for 11 years, and by accident, he saved her.

Their fates are more intertwined than either of them knows. The way they come together slowly, the way 2 broken people find lov

I love Carian Cole’s stories. She can feature either perfect or broken heroes meeting their ideal female counterparts. She gives us sweet romance stories spiced up with some (bearable) angst. As Carian is a real animal lover she always features some pet to my great delight.

A fairytale in its purest form.
A Prince who doesn't want to be the hero and a Princess who refuses to become a victim even after the worst imaginable torment fell upon her.

Exactly what I needed to read, in order to get out of my book slump. 5 huge stars not only because I love Carian Cole and her crazy writing skills, but mostly because I fell in love with the story, the characters and every little thing in this book.

Holly is a girl who went through a nightmare but kept her innocence intact.

Tied is book #2 in The Devil's Wolves Series and can totally be read as a stand-alone if you so choose.

Tied brings forth a much different story than with Torn. Carian's writing is mature, thought-provoking, and delicate when it needs to be, to do this story justice.

Where Torn was a bit of taboo, this is a whole lot of two people coming together who have had some very f'ed up things happen to them in the past, to living what amounts to the fairytale that everyone wants.

So.... here's where I get to tell you how big a dork I can be. I decided to read this book because of the Title and Cover. I merely skimmed the blurb. I assumed from the title it was either an MC or Shifter Romance. WRONG! OMG, this book you guys!! Tied is a gut-punch in the very best way. It was completely unexpected and utterly spellbinding.

The main characters, Holly and Tyler experience extreme hardships and traumatic events. They're both broken and beaten down, but also doing the best they c

This is seriously one of the best books I've ever read. This isn't a feel-good, cotton candy romance. These characters have each been through hell and have had to deal with the consequences of what has happened to them. The writing was fantastic - there were so many things I highlighted and I'm not normally someone who highlights in a book- I just couldn't stop myself. These characters were complex and amazing. I loved both of them and my heart broke for everything they went through and all they ...more
A beautiful story of good triumphing over bad, of learning to live, love, accept and move on from a life of unadulterated horror and finding your prince at the end of it.

I really do love this author's writing, she tackles very difficult subjects and handles them with sensitivity without pulling any punches.

What took away a star for me is the ending seemed almost too easy, I kept on waiting for the axe to fall. Also I wanted to see some sort of resolution/explanation with her arsehole parents and

This was so cute and strong ...

I don't want to write much about this book, the synopsis of the book basically says everything you need to know about it, it's a dark romance, you should keep that in mind, but it's super well written, the pages fly and it's super enjoyable.

The characters are well written, basically two lost souls who find each other and will do anything to heal each other, that's kinda beautiful.

Rating: 4 Stars.

By far one of the most heartbreakingly beautiful fairytales I’ve ever read. If may not have hit that 5 star mark as it was just missing that something for me, but still I couldn’t put it down.

This was a hard one to rate which is why it's taken me a while to write this review. There were lots of things I loved about this story. Loved Holly and Tyler. Holly had such a traumatic and tragic existence from the time she was 8 years old until Tyler found her ten years later. And I loved how this story focused more on her recovery rather than the details of what actually happened. But I felt there was so much missing from the story. There was mention of the man who took her having a

We first met Tyler in Torn, from there I couldn’t wait for his story. I always love a dark man fighting with his own demons story.

Tied starts off with Tyler in the woods and finds the girl in the hole, Holly who escaped the bad man. The bad man kidnapped her 11 years earlier and the unthinkable abuse happened to her. At that moment Holly concerned Tyler her Prince.

After her release from the hospital, her parents decided she would not go home but instead to A facility that teaches life skill

Oh My Giddy Aunt, This Book was so good, a real heart-rending tragic narrative of events that when tied together make a catalogue of disasters that are so awful for both Tyler and Holly, yet needed to occur so these two damaged individuals could be exactly where they stand now together, United, mirrors to each others pain and anguish.

I discovered this author with her first book Storm and Very Quickly became obsessed with her books. I’ve read most of them 3 or 4 times so far. The first series is about a rock band and whenever I heard a song on the radio I liked, I pictured this imaginary band playing it. Yes, I’m that obsessed. Not to say I was like that with them all. There was one I only read once, not because it wasn’t good, the main theme was just something I’m not comfortable with.

The second romance book I read in the span of a week. I'm pretty sure that I'm either running away from my emotions or The world is ending and I don't know how to deal with it. If I read a third romance, it's probably both. Anywho, let's review this!

Okay, so I'm a sucker for Bad boys obviously BUT bad boys with traumatizing past, scarred and own a fox as a pet: GIVE IT TO ME NOW!

I loved so many things about this book: Tyler, Tyler and ummm, I think Tyler?

Ty was one of the oddest heroes I've ever read and I was into it. Holly's parents make me want to set shit on fire but thankfully, Zac and Anna restored my faith in humanity. Overall this was good and the unconventional love story kept me interested the whole way through, which is all I'm rly asking for these days.

How bizarre.
How stalkery.
How romantic.

I have a passion for the bad boys, those covered in tattoos, sexy smirks, ripped jeans, fast cars, motorcycles and of course, the sweet girls that try to tame them and win their hearts. My debut series, Ashes & Embers, follows the lives of rock band members as they find, and sometimes lose, the loves of their lives.

My first novel in the Ashes & Embers series, Storm, was published in September of 2
