Why did I even open this book? Why? Why? Why?

In my review for for book one of this series, ironically enough, I defended the realism within the pages against several reviews I'd read saying that the level of abuse was too much and the character reactions not authentic. I stand by that review. But...

Here I am in book two, and can you possibly guess why I am about to rip my hair out?!?

In book one, the animosity between Mac and Mia intrigued me, especially as both Bailey and Jaxon witnessed the longing looks they gave each other. Learning that they were in love in the past (and quite possibly in the present), I immediately added this book to my TBR list in order to learn more.

Finding out Mac and Mia's history and what tore them apart was heart wrenching. Finding out that they were apart for 10 years over a misunderstanding was heart breaking. Reading about them rediscovering o

Loved Mac ~

Reclaim Me was the story of Mac & Mia. I was dying to know what went on with these two considering that Mia, Jaxson's sister, was was obnoxious as all to Mac, the town's sheriff, in the first book, Shatter Me.
Ten years earlier, when Mia was sixteen and Mac eighteen, something out of Mac's control happened to him at a party and completely damaged Mia. As much as it was disturbing, the part that irked me over and over was how Mia NEVER gave Mac a chance to explain what really happe

ARC received in exchange for an honest review.

I loved Book 1 of The Jaded Series and I am happy to say that Book 2 is absolutely awesome!!!

I had no idea what to expect from Mac and Mia but one thing I knew for sure was that this would be a hella emotional read and of course it was!

Mia has been avoiding listening to Mac for 10 years! After she walked in on what seemed to be an unforgivable act, she wanted absolutely nothing to do with him. He broke her heart and she would never be the same again

Welcome back to the Hollow. The characters we met and fell in love with are back. I have been patiently,as much as I possibly could, waiting for this since I read the last word in Shatter Me. I was in need of more of the characters but I was also in need of more of the wonderfully written words from this author, I wasn't disappointed. When you read a debut book and it literally burrows it's way into your soul you hope that the next books can live up to the experience that was had when you read t ...more

Wow, what a book Alex. You blew me away with Shatter Me, then we get the second book & it is phenomenal.

This is about Mia, Jaxon's sister & Mac, the Sheriff & Jaxon's best friend. These two had quite a history & there was definitely hostility between them in book 1, & with this book we get their history both individually & as a couple.
At times this was heartbreaking, the things they both had to endure were awful. They had many

This is one fabulous read.

The character development of this story is Phenomenal. I loved that I was able to feel an attachment with the secondary characters as well as Mia and Mac. Andrew I simply adore him and his witty shirts. Jaxon, Bailey, Karen, Ethan, Chris, and Nick I fell for them all. I can not wait for Nick's story my heart hurt for him.

Reclaim Me is the second book in the Jaded Series. The first book is Shatter Me (which I plan to go back and read). Reclaim Me is about Jaxon's (from Shatter Me) little sister and his best-friend Mac, who is now the sheriff of their town. I obviously read Reclaim Me as a stand-alone but as I said before, I am definatetly planning on going back and reading the first book.

This book kept me on the edge of my seat! So many twists and turns that I did not see coming! Just when I thought I had everything figured out, I was thrown for a loop. I just love those books that totally surprise me and have me scratching my head. I still favor the first book of the series, though, but this one does not disappoint. Yes, it's graphic and explicit. So, pay attention to the author's warnings when she says if abuse, rape, graphic sexual content, or explicit language is not your th ...more

Ok its official, i'm in love with the men and the women of this series!!! Such strong characters and such strong connections between them! I cheer at their triumphs and happiness and i tear up at their losses and pain.

Mia and Mac were destined to be and everyone around them knew it from childhood. Their bond seemed unbreakable and stood the test of time until almost adulthood when they would give each other their most sacred gift. What should have been their happiest night, on her 18th birthday,

Mia and Mack have a long history together. There is a lot of resentment about the past that Mia can't let go of and for good reason. Mac is determined to make her see the truth while trying to figure out his life. But he'll never give up. There were a lot of things that happened in the past that Mac will try to explain. Mia had a dream of a white picket fence and the whole happy ever after until that night when one even let to ano

Better than book one

I really enjoyed this story. It was a lot less over dramatic than the first book, and while it definitely still had several scenes of disturbing sexual violence, it was not anywhere near as depraved or graphic as book one. I grew to love the characters more and more, especially Andrew and Chris. Mia and Mac were certainly meant to be together and had the history to prove it. Mac still believed it, but Mia had given up on him long ago. Mac had let her have her anger because he

After reading the first book your can't help but want to know what happened with Mac and Mia, and I was excited that their book was the next over. There was about a 2 year time jump from the end of the first book too this one but nothing was really missed.

Mac was amazing! He was tougher then I had originally thought his character was going to be. He was charming and sweet and dedicated to those that he loved.

Mia was strong too. At times she upset me because once we know what happened with them

Alex Grayson has once again done an amazing job with this installment in this series. This series just keeps getting better and better. I am absolutely hooked to all the characters and finding out all their stories.

This book as you can tell from the blurb is definitely not for the faint of heart. This book is dark, gritty, heart breaking, emotional, suspenseful, full of guilt, misunderstandings, resentment and so much more. After 10 years of Mia avoiding Mac for something she thought she knew h

I really enjoyed this story. Even though it is a standalone, I would suggest reading book one in the series so you are up to date on the history of the other characters from Jaded Hollow.

What do you do when the love of your life betrays you on what is supposed to be a very special day for both of you?
You close yourself off from anyone who isn’t family to ensure that you never feel pain like that ever again.

After reading book 1, I couldn’t wait to read Mac and Mia’s story. From the first book, I could tell something major between these two had happened but I never expected it to be what it was. There were times my mouth was hanging to the floor and I could not believe what Mac and Mia had went through.

Mia isn’t the girl she once was. She isn’t sweet or innocent. She is now a woman with a mission to hate Mac Weston for the rest of her life. I was pulled in within the first few pages because I neede

This was Mia's story. It is told in her and Mac's POV. It is their second chance at romance. You know it is coming, but it was one hell of a bumpy road getting these two there. It seems there is someone out to get the two of them forcing them apart, but their love will not break, not this time. This time they are reclaiming their love even if it kills them. All the secrets will come out!

Mia is a firecracker. Tattooed bartender with a chip on her shoulder.

Reclaim me can be read as a standalone, although I recommend reading Shatter Me first to gain better insight into the history of the two main characters in this intense love story.
This novel follows the story of Mia and Mac, two locals who grew up together and share and intense history and a shared past. Theirs is a story where something went terribly wrong at age 18 that shattered their lives, resulting in 10 years of agonizing misery between the two of them. Mac

Obviously I read Reclaim Me as a stand alone and I loved it.
The characters are phenomenal, the chemistry between Mia and Mac is perfection. Throughout the story there was a perfect mix of angst, intrigue, suspense and hot steamy sex and not too many characters to make it confusing. It was not hard to understand the underlying story of characters from book one but definite
