I loved this book!! This is book 3 in the series but a complete stand-alone! I fall more in love with the people in Carson City with each book. I loved Dylan and Sydney!!! Sydney is the town sweetheart and has an amazing heart but scared to trust!! Dylan is a sexy strong alpha with a protective and loving side who will make you swoon and melt your panties right off!! Thier chemistry was explosive and amazing!! This story pulled me in from the beginning, it is full of suspense with twists and tur ...more

Attraction and secrets…

I started this series backwards! That in no way stopped me from enjoying Sydney and Dylan’s story, however. From the start there was something between the focused baker and the would-be chef. Sexual attraction? Wariness? Fear? Uncertainty? Oh yes, there was a lot going on as Sydney reveals her worries through flashes to the past even as her future begins to unfold… Protective, handsome, thou be Dylan! And Sydney, even as she tries to keep him at arm’s length, is not immune

Coming consumed by Renee Harless is a contemporary romance suspense and the third book in the Welcome to Carson series.

This is the first book in the series that I have read unfortunately, and I say unfortunately because even though most of Coming Consumed can be read as a stand alone, there are some scenes that feel like major events but are glossed over, because, I'm guessing, that they are scenes that play important parts in the previous books, so you almost feel like you are missing out.

Coming Consumed is book 3 in the Welcome to Carson Series, but it can be read as a complete stand alone. The prologue drew me in, and right away I knew I was in for a suspenseful read!

There is supposed to be an instant connection between the main characters, Sydney and Dylan, but I didn't feel it straight away. It took me a little while to believe in that connection and feel their chemistry.

That said, I slowly began to invest in them and root for them as a couple. By the end, they had me all sm

Wow! Renee has done it again!! Another fabulous addition to the Connelly family story. This time the focus is on Sydney and Dylan. The story has so many twists and turns, it is both suspenseful and super hot! The chemistry between Sydney and Dylan is to die for!! They set my Kindle on 🔥!!

Book 3 of the Carson series and it's Sydney's turn. The saying is to not judge a book by it's cover, but this book has a gorgeous cover. We learn that Sydney and Dylan have some kind of connection in book #2 and now we find out the how & why. I like that there are little pieces of books 1 & 2 in Coming Consumed to tie everything together. The Connelly clan is a fun family to read about and each one seems to be very smart and successful in their career fields, but like always, there's som ...more

I just received an ARC of Coming Consumed. I loved that Sydney and Dylan got their story. Sydney was afraid to love again after her cop ex boyfriend left her. She also was assaulted because of him. Dylan was just what Sydney needed to help her get through her fears. I can't believe that her creep of an ex even showed back up and had the balls to ask for another chance. This is another excellent book by Renee Harless. I can't wait to read the next one.
***Arc received in exchange for an honest review***

Coming Consumed by Renee Harless was for me, a slightly above average read. The storyline, characters and plot were good but it failed to really grab my attention and pull me in, It was a little hit and miss.

The storyline was well thought out, but overall, just too long. From the beginning i knew basically what was going to happen, which i was right about, there were no elements of surprise or twists that took the story to a higher level.

Sydney Connelly thought she had known what happiness felt like when she was in college. She had a wonderful boyfriend and she loved her culinary school classes. That all changed one horrible night, and she didn't think she could ever trust or love anyone again.
She worked long hours at her bakery, Wake and Bake, that she bought from her mother when she graduated from college. She also recently purchased the building next door for the expansion of the business. Sydney began interviewing for a chef

Coming Consumed was a great 5 star read. This is book 3 in the Welcome to Carson series.
Once I started reading I was pulled right in.

Sydney has bought her mother’s bakery and is now looking to expand to the building next door with a diner. She is moving forward from an attack from some dangerous men her ex was involved with.

Dylan is an FBI agent working undercover to protect Sydney. He has a culinary background so it was the perfect fit. Only problem is,

Sydney Connelly is the good girl of her family, as she never gets into trouble, always listens to her parents, follows the rules, all the while doing what is expected of her. One moment in time throws her life into chaos, as she meets a campus cop that she keeps from her family, so her life takes a dark turn. Now she's scarred, and still has nightmares from that night, on top of her heart being broken, so she decides she'll never be in a relationship again. Finally when her life has evened out, ...more

Coming Consumed was my first ever read by author Renee Harless. It was highly entertaining and enjoyable. This is the 3rd book in the series but can be read as a standalone. I could tell I may have missed out on some interesting and fun hijinks with books one and two, but the author did a fine job ensuring I knew everything I needed to follow along and also gave me just enough to want to go back and start from the beginning with this family.

I just adore this series and Coming Consumed is another awesome addition. The author has written a wonderful storyline based on the folks in the small N. Carolina town of Carson (primary centered around Connelly family).

This is Sydney’s story. She has graduated from culinary school and is now owns and runs the town bakery that her Mom owned for 30 years. She is even expanding it to have a grill/diner attached. But getting to this point hasn’t all been a bed of roses. While in school Sydney is at

By far this is my favorite book in the Welcome to Carson series by Renee Harless!

Coming Consumed is book 3 in the Welcome to Carson series.  While it is part of a series, it can be read as a standalone.  This series kind of overlaps a little bit.  The characters are used throughout the other books and some of the story lines are weaved in and out.  I think it is a great technique that, had I not already read the other books, it would have made me curious as to what that was all about.  I certain

Coming Consumed: Welcome to Carson Book 3

Book 3 in this series is Sydney’s story, this book can be read as a standalone or as a part of the series. I highly recommend that you read the first 2 because they are all amazing stories. This is a fun-loving story that will have you laughing, crying and fanning yourself with the hot sex, it has several twists and turns that will surprise you as well. You will experience love, heartbreak, anger, and happiness right along with the charact

Welcome back to Carson! I was super psyched when I found out that there was a new book to this series. I LOVED the first two books, and I was certain that I would love this one, as well. I was not Disappointed at all. I absolutely LOVE the Connellys! Sydney is amazing and Dylan is effing adorable. Together they are HOT, and this story is fantastic! This may be the third book in the series, but it could totally be the first one, or the only one, you read, because it is written with its on individ ...more

This has been my favorite book in the Welcome to Carson series so far however the preview of the next installment has me itching to get my hands on that one. I think it will be my new favorite.

Coming Consumed had just enough romance, action and suspense to keep you turning the page constantly! You have two strong, independent and stubborn main characters who sometimes refuse to admit the truth about their feelings for one another.

Sydney is consumed with work although her work is her passion. As

I adore this series. True to form, Renee Harless does not disappoint with this third installment in her Welcome to Carson series Coming Consumed. The storyline is well written and quite well developed as we follow the story of Sydney, which also brings back her sibblings from the first two books, which catches us up on their lives as well as sets us up for the prospect on who the next book will be about. The story holds hot sex, intrigue and excitement, and delves a bit into the last book when A ...more

Coming consumed 4.5 stars

Coming consumed has to be my favourite welcome to Carson book yet. Although each book connects to the rest they are written as a standalone and can still be enjoyed if you haven't had the pleasure of book 1 and 2.

Sydney is a character that you instantly relate too and Dylan's charms will have you smiling to yourself as you read. This book is filled with moments that you have to go back and re read because you can't believe you just read that and where did that come from.

Sydney and Dylan's story.
Wow! I have a new book boyfriend!!!❤ Dylan is absolutely amazing and perfect for Sydney, but he has a secret.

Sydney is gorgeous, loves baking and has no intention of having a relationship with any man. She has a secret from her college days and as a result doesn't trust men.

When Sydney and Dylan meet there is an undeniable chemistry, but she needs him to work for her and doesn't want to go there. Eventually she gives in and invites him for

Sydney has graduated from culinary school and has returned home to manage her mom’s bakery and is expanding to include a diner.

Dylan interviews for the position of chef and although she is attracted to him she has reservations with all men and although she believes that he is not being totally upfront with her.

The one thing Sydney can’t accept in her life is lies as the last time someone lied to her she ended up in a situation from which she barely escaped. Dylan is slowly breaking down the wall

"Coming Consumed" is the third book in the Welcome to Carson series. This book picks up with Sydney Connelly, who is quite and tends to her own business. She tries to stay in the background of the family, which has six children. So it's pretty easy to blend in and hide out. Sydney is the baker of the family and she bought her mother's bakery from her when her mother decided to retire. That is where Sydney meets Dylan Bennett. These two have some very wonderful and strong chemistry together. They ...more

Although this is the third book in this series, it can be read as a standalone. I've not read any of the previous books but I didn't feel as if I had missed out as those stories run alongside this one and are explained. This story follows Sydney and Dylan, there's loads of twists and turns, some you don't see coming until it happens. I was fully invested in Dylan and Sydney as a couple, they did get together quick but I was rooting for them to get their happy ever after together. The chemistry b ...more

The third book of Welcome to Carson series, bring us again some romance, action and suspense like the second book brought us, but, both aren’t a sequel, they’re standalones! This time, Sydney has afraid of falling in love again, ‘cause she remembers everything that happened with her in the past, will she believe in a man and falling in love again, so rapidly as that?

4.5 stars! This was my first Renee Harless book and it's not going to be my last. This book was funny, suspenseful and sweet. Sydney is just doing what she loves in her small town. But while looking to expand she meets Dylan, and he's not who he claims to be. Their connection is strong and instantaneous. And once the truth comes out Dylan is determined to do everything he can to keep her safe.

I cannot tell you how much I loved this book! Book 3 in the Welcome to Carson series did not disappoint. Sydney was this amazingly strong character that had this beautiful vulnerable side that I instantly connected to! And when a writer can make you feel the connection between two people, they've done their job. The feels between Dylan and Syndey practically made me melt!
The twists, turns and shockers made me feel like I was on a damn roller coaster!! I loved it!! Great job Renee!! 5+
