Killian Everett is condescending, egotistical, and a complete jerk.
When I started as the new assistant for the famous rock band Civil Corruption, I thought I’d hit the career jackpot...
but I was wrong.

With his attitude, bad behavior, and stupid good looks, Killian has made my life a living hell since my very first day.
We may fight constantly, but that doesn’t make me want

Lu Bielefeld **
A womanizer who fucks everything that has a hole and breathes, has daddy issues and abandonment issues, is immature and irrational.
She feels guilty about her mother's illness and has a martyr complex.
The same as always in history, he fucks several women to try to forget our heroine and treats her like shit.
Nothing new. An ok reading.
I liked Marco, I would kick the supposed hero to the curb and trade for Marco. #justsaying

I swear I always start my reviews of a Jessica Prince book the same exact way and that's pretty much by saying I devoured the book.


I just love her writing. She always sucks me in with her characters, her storyline and if you ask me I probably don't gush about her enough. She's consistently delivers great stories. It's why she's a go to author for me. Whether she's making me laugh with her rom coms or making my heart beat faster with her contemp novels I can always count on Jes

I can't say enough about my love for all things JESSICA PRINCE! I have yet to read one of her stories that does not CONSUME me...completely, overwhelmingly, enraptured by each word on every page. I don't know how to explain the feeling that overtakes me while reading her stories. It's a knot, a pang of something...I never know if it's butterflies, the feeling of what's to come, or just a complete consumption of my reader heart. All I do know is every time I start one of her stories...I am comple ...more

When you are told by two very reliable sources that you are going to LOVE this book, you get excited but also take it with a grain of salt because you never WANT to be too excited just in case.

Well, in this case the grain of salt was obliterated from the very first page.

Killian and Gina were EVERYTHING. And when I say everything, I mean it because whoo weee did they put me, and themselves, through the ringer. The feels were going all kinds of BSC (batshitcra

No offense but am I supposed to find the Hero hot and desirable?

The Hero is a total sleazebag who thinks it's okay for him to fuck around with other girls but god forbid the heroine even laughs at other guy's joke.

He's just disgusting and has no respect for the woman he supposedly has feelings for. He manhandles her, belittles her--sorry but this isn't someone I could root for. I couldn't care less about his sob stories because I believe women deserve better than this.

When I say Killian and Gina’s story Consume-d me, I am not lying!

I knew I would love the sexy, smart, crazy hot sexual tension between these two from their hot AF hook-up at the wedding, what I didn’t expect was how sweet and charming and how much I would fall in love with both Killian and Gina throughout this amazing book.

Gina’s lived a very hard life—one tragic moment at a time. She finally catches a break when offered the position as Civil Corruption’s assistant. A break where she can finally

Killian and Gina will consume and burn you!

This series is amazing and, as usual, the author's writing is superb. Killian and Gina have been slow burning for a while, and now they finally consumed each other!

Killian is that kind of character that takes work and time. He is a jerk, a pain and, more often than not, he is stupid with Gina. But when you get to know him, his background, his burns and scars, you understand him better. And when he lets Gine in, you fall in love with him. He was sweet, c

The men of Civil Corruption and the women that love them have great stories and Consume is no different. Killian Everett and Gina Ivory didn’t start off on the best footing. Both from crappy backgrounds they protect themselves at all costs. The pace and flow along with the excitement of a rock tour are sensational. The angst just enough to get the heart pumping. Killian (and really all the guys) is sexy and brooding and easy to love. Gina is fierce in her loyalty and love. They’ve got great chem ...more

I loved, loved, loved this book.
Not going to lie my heart broke for Gina. She is so amazing. She was dealt a terrible hand in her life. And the worse part is that she blames herself for it, and nothing could be farther from the truth. And with that blame she takes on the sole responsibility of being the care giver.
Enter Killian Everett I will admit I didn't like the man at first, I didn't like him AT ALL! He's the epitome of a Rock Star. He snaps his fingers and can get any woman he wants. An

I totally consumed Consume! A great lovers to enemies to lovers story, the chemistry is scorching hot, the mistakes are huge and there are so many emotions it’s hard to convey it all without spoilers. So I’ll leave it here by saying you won’t be disappointed with this next instalment of the Civil Corruption boys!

When Gina allows her friends to convince her to take the job as the band's assistant, I knew the fireworks were going to go off, and they did! Killian finally meets a woman who doesn't put up with his rockstar bs, doesn't fall all over him. He can't get the feisty, sassy assistant out of his mind, and it's driving him absolutely batshit crazy, causing him to do ridiculous things, say ridiculous things. I was highly amused at how much she got under his skin, all without even trying. The big, bad ...more

I love a good asshole musician...and Killian is just that! Consume was everything I was looking for in a rock star romance!

Killian and Gina had one night which even after the amazing time they had, Killian couldn’t get rid of Gina fast enough. But now a few months later, the tension is through the roof as Gina is the new assistant and Killian will do anything to get her to leave. Little does he know that Gina is not going to back down!

Love Hate relationship books should have both love and hate situations that make a reader feel the change from Hate to Love . However the Hate in the name of JEALOUSY over powered LOVE put me off. Despite the fact that I absolutely love rude Heroes, all that Killian ever did was verbal lashings and be double standard douche towards Gina for about 85% of the book, wished there was more of emotional chemistry scenarios present.Towards the last few chapters, Killian's attitude change towards Gina c ...more

I think this stoy had so much potential to be a great story. The main characters were a little much for me and I did not really like the main male character a lot. Their story was a little forced to me. I just could not get into it like I wanted to. I think that this could have been a great one I just couldn't like it. It just felt like something was missing with this story .

I haven't read the other books in this series, but it was easy to pick this up and enjoy the story. Killian was an asshole for most of the book, but he was one with a heart. He just needed to dig it out from under his douchebag behavior.

Gina has had to carry the weight of the world on her shoulders alone for the last 6 years. This is the exact reason she chooses to accept a job that she would rather avoid. She may have been the shy blushing girl every time she was around Killian before, but not anymore. His coldness after their one night stand has sparked a fire in her that was hidden under her old crush for him. He will learn soon that he can't push her away from this job, there are things in her life that are more important t ...more

CONSUME by Jessica Prince is book 3 in the Civil Corruption series. Killian and Gina were in the background in previous stories and made me long for their story and now here it is. Their love story has been a slow burning one…and what a story it is. Both come from sad and terrible backgrounds which mean they protect themselves from pain at all costs. Killian is a jerk, a womanizer, and when he is around Gina, he acts like a fool around her and that doesn’t help him win points with Gina. When the ...more

Killian and Gina's story was one I waited for since it got hints in the previous book. Being burned by woman and having a woman hating father Killian has become a manwhore but his Thumbelina changed it all. Their story takes place around Declan's, no worries though the little details are filled in if you missed that one. As the new band PA things get even more complicated along with competition to spice things up.

Loved this one!

Finally Kill’s book! I love myself a good old man whore turned into a committed man. Kill is hot, he doesn’t do repeats but he loves women. Insert one night with Gina that he blows big time and his world is tilted. When she gets hired on by the band he can’t get away from her and over the connection they had that one night, but Gina wants nothing to do with him after being burned. She has way too much on her plate and she doesn’t want to play his games. But once kill sets his mind

The Civil Corruption series is hands down the best rock star romances I’ve read! You’ll probably want to kick Killian’s ass (I know I sure did), but sweet Gina, although tiny, is definitely tough enough to look after herself!

Killian and Gina have a little bit of a past, and that little bit of a past didn’t end well. Now she’s the band’s personal assistant and that really complicates things. Gina doesn’t really want the job, but life dictates otherwise and now she’s determined to stay. Killian d

Killian often times takes things out of context, "a low, raspy sound of amusement worked its way from Killian’s throat. “Abnormally large? Sweetness, you got no effin’idea.” Killian is a jealous one, “you want to get off, you come to me. What you don’t do is flirt with effing Marco Castillo. He’s off-limits. In fact, every single godd**n person who isn’t me is off effin’ limits, you got it?” I loved this hook, Killian had some problems but with his lady by his side things looked up for him

This story moved a little slower than the first two, but made up for it at the end. Gina and Killian have been at each other's throats since Gina became their PA, we know why but that's not the only thing Gina is dealing with, my heart broke for her. However Killian, when he finally stops being the selfish SOB he more than makes up for his stupidity.

Wow!!! Another Jessica Prince’s 5 star story that was easily read in one sitting. This is the third book in the Civil Corruption series. All standalone by the way.

Killian is part of the band Civil Corruption and loves to party and woman. He spends an unforgettable night with Gina, a friend of the band members. Now they have to work together, let’s say he’s not very accepting of that. Gina is going through a lot and needs this job so she will not let Killian get in the way of it.

I introduced a new shelf for this book, 2nd lead syndrome. The om really seemed so wonderful, I had serious doubts about the h's sanity in her hangup about the H. But then in reality friends have made questionable choices in men so maybe that's par for the course. Jessica Prince really does douchey heroes pretty well, but she doesn't quite hit the correct angst level with it. It happens and then its over and done with, it makes me wonder whether the h's only have short term memory. Also I read t ...more

Gina & Killian's point of view

Gina came off as the shy, blushing, tongue tied girl in the first chapter, then begging for it. When it was done, (Time to go ) in the second. *Laughing*

Chapter 5- I'd been up way too F___ late the night before, trying like I had every night for the past few weeks to F__ Gina out of my head. Unfortunately, it wasn't working. Every P__ I buried my D__ in acutely felt like second best.

Jessica Prince is one of my favourite authors despite the fact that I only discovered her a few months ago (I live under a rock!). I fell head over heels for her Girl Talk series (reading them all within a month) yet somehow when I signed up for her CONSUME blog tour, I didn’t even realize the two series were written by the same author.

Born and raised around Houston, Jessica is a self proclaimed caffeine addict, connoisseur of inexpensive wine, and the worst driver in the state of Texas. In addition to being all of these things, she’s first and foremost a wife and mom.
Growing up, she shared her mom and grandmother’s love of reading. But where they leaned toward murder mysteries, Jessica was obsessed with all things romance.
