Deserved is the second book in the Soul Mates series, and if I’m completely honest I enjoyed it more than I enjoyed Survivor. Survivor, book one, was a great read, yet Deserved had something that little bit more.

I quite often stay up late reading a good book, but to forego sleep by choice due to a good book is somewhat rarer. Usually I will notice the sun coming up and realise I need to get an hour or so of sleep – such was not the case here. I started Deserved at about three in the morning, and

Another great read by Victoria Johns

A battle of wills, a battle against the age gap.

"You don't want to start this war with me."
"You think you can take me?"
I am a woman! Hear me ROAR."

I liked Deserved, the story wasn't without its angst or drama. A 12 year old girl gets dumped on the doorstep of a father she has never met, an ex who's involved in motorbike gangs and on the run, There's Tommy who brings hotness to the plot and shows he has a dominant side, to which there wasn't enough of and f

Exceptional characters within a beautiful story

DESERVED is the second book in Victoria Johns' SOUL MATES series. I enjoyed this one a lot more than SURVIVOR as it packed more punch emotionally. It wasn't just a book about romance, it was a story of friendship, dscovery and giving back to others.

Lacey is an exceptional character, strong, loving and determined. She wants to give children from broken homes the love and support they need, something that she received when she was in the same situat

I. Love. This. Author! Relatively new to her words, I devoured this book like a starving person at a feast. Every word was perfection and the story kept me invested and intrigued from beginning to end. The writer has a real skill for creating characters you can relate to. They're intensely likeable without ever being irritatingly nice or unbelievable. The story was fast paced and kept me guessing right to the end about what was going to happen. This author's ability to tell an amazing story that ...more

Amazing Series

I have loved every book in this series and this one is no different. Tommy and Lacey's sorry is not straight forward but if they truly love each other they will fight for their Happily ever after. Amazing 5 star read.

Newly discovered author, great.

Came across Victoria after reading the collaboration with Nikki Ashton. Thought I would look for more books. I was so pleased I did. I've read all the Soul Sisters series and now I'm reading my way through Soul Mates. Not a new formula, Alpha male, sassy female unrequited love or everything going against them, angst, hot sex lots of side characters to make new stories. However when done well this formula is brilliant. Victoria does it really well. I think if anythi

Deserved is the first solo book I have read by Victoria. Although Deserved is the second book in the Soul Mate series I didn't feel lost. Victoria is awesome with her words. I definitely will be reading book one Survivor. Deserved has great characters and the connection is great between them. I was hooked by the blurb. Great story. I am looking forward to more of Victoria's books.

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC for this book.
