My GR friend Jane read this for me 'cause I was too scary-cat to read it and so I made her take one for the team!!! Thanks babe!

So yep, I won't read because of this: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...

I agree with Jane. Cheating is black & white for me too. No middle ground at all, - and no, forging a cheater does not make someone weak or strong! It makes them SMART to walk away from the douchebag!

....Claudia Burgoa....OMG. Gahhhhhhh. Such a wonderful emotional, thrill ride. I will say that after meeting Tess in book one I did not know what to expect. I really enjoyed her character in his book. I got to know her and become emotionally invested in her. Then we meet Gage. I was drawn to him from the beginning. I loved how he was all in, giving his full heart to Tess. Then, bam! I was upended! Claudia kept me turning page after page as she took me on an emotional journey of love, loss, and f ...more

Rating: 2.5 stars

This is my first Burgoa novel and it was an okay read. The plot was interesting, the characters and dialogue were great, but it lost me on two points.

1) I'm a fan of the slow burn. This wasn't slow, this was glacial.

2) I knew what the twist was from the moment it was set up. (To be honest, I suspected as much from the description. My hunch was strengthened at the set up, and then by the time I learned I was right I was apathetic to the whole thing.)

I have yet to find a book by Claudia Burgoa that I haven't liked but this book, this book has to be my absolute favorite of all of them!!! I LOVE TESS AND GAGE! Both are so strong in their own ways and even thought there was a part of the book where I was cursing, yes cursing Claudia (you'll know when that was when you read it) I knew there had to be more to the story then we were seeing.

I have to admit I came into this fully expecting to not really like Tess because she was such a horrendous little twat in My One Regret. Thank God Claudia Burgoa knew better than to have Tess stagnate and not grow because here in her own story, Tess is pretty great.



Gage and Tess used to have something pretty beautiful. It was passionate and intense and just what Tess and Gage needed at that point in their lives. Suddenly their world was upended, though, and Tess did what she thought was best, an

"It's as if at that moment we had finally found each other."

Claudia Burgoa is one of those authors that with every book you think there's no way she can top that, or that's my favorite one yet but evey time she blows it completely out of this world and you fall more deeply in love with her writing and the world she just served up to you on a silver platter.

My One Despair was so out of this world that I swear my mouth was just hanging open as I read because the way this story unfolded was exc

This is the poignant and beautiful love story of two lovers whose dreams and life were forcing them to separate, and so they did. Gage was much older than Tess. She had a life to look forward to, he had already lived part of his and knew it was time to settle down.

Really loved this epic saga of two people who loved each other for life but had not found a way to merge their dreams to make living together possible. If you are looking for a hot and heart-wracking love story look no further. You wil

Oh my gosh! The emotions that this book will put out of you is unreal! I laughed, I cried, I sighed, I went awww in quite a few places. I was falling in love with Gage the same time that Tess was. I watched Tess grow and open up her heart to him. Gage would have done absolutely anything for Tess, anything. They had it all going for them until one phone call shattered their dreams.

Through the years of heartache they kept each other in their thoughts but wouldn't let it go any further. When Tess f

My One Despair is a new standalone from Claudia Burgoa. It takes place a few years after My One Regret, featuring the now adult Tess Hades, and Gage Rodin, teacher/barista/bartender and dreamer of being a musician. They meet at the bar where Gage is working, when a guy brought Tess seemingly on a date but in reality to get her to see his band and tell her father, famed rock star Kaden Hades, about them. Tess quickly figures out she’s being used and Gage looks out for her. They meet again later w ...more

I have officially given up trying not to cry while reading Claudia Burgoa’s books. No matter how hard I try, I cannot hold back the waterworks. This story just tugs on your heartstrings until you can’t help but cry. I love the universe that Claudia has made around her books. Without even knowing it, the reader gets an update about other characters from her other series like yes Claudia yes. So be warned, YOU WILL TEAR AT ONE POINT and see other dear characters!

OMG! What a beautiful, heart-wrenching, extraordinary story of second chances. We first met Tess Hades in the first book, My One Regret. She was a young, confused girl, torn between loving her father, and being afraid of losing her manipulative mother. Now she is older and wiser, and living in a stable, loving home with her famous father, Kaden Hades. Gage Rodin is a struggling musician, working as a teacher, deliveryman, and bartender.

The Queen of Angst has done it again! God, this book!

"It's like her soul was calling mine. I could hear a faint voice saying, you're finally home."

When Gage Rodin first meets Tess Hades, he's holding down three jobs and struggling to make his name on the music scene. The wary and skittish Tess has an immediate and profound effect on him.

"He was exasperating, and sweet, and I hated that my feelings for him were growing by the minute."

Tess doesn't like how much Gage affects her; how attracted sh

My One Despair is absolutely everything and touched me deep down to my soul. I fell hard for Gage Rodin and Tessa Hades as their story is exceptional, addictive and very emotional.

Tessa is the daughter of Kaden Hades from My One Regret (amazing book) and My One Despair can definitely be read as a standalone. She's had a very difficult and traumatic past as her mother was terribly abusive in so many ways. Tessa was beautifully broken however, she was an admirable and resilient young woman who po

Tess and Gage's have such an amazing and beautiful love story in " My One Despair". The emotions in this story are such a rollercoaster ride and such will pull the emotions out of you are so unreal! Where the story called for it, I laughed,or I cried, I even sighed, I was even awww'ing in many places. For me, I was falling in love with Gage at the same time that Tess herself was.

Wow, wow, wow!!! I’ll be honest right off the bat. Tess was a handful in My One Regret. I didn’t hate her but she wasn’t my favorite. At least in the beginning. The kk her the story went on the more I understood her. And I began to like her. Well that little snippet into Tess’s life has nothing on what I know now! I LOVE her! There’s a reason she’s the way she is. The more you read and get to know her, the more I love the crap out of her! Underneath the tough exterior she exudes there is this gi ...more

My One Despair was good and enjoyable to read but honestly it was nothing to write home about. While I enjoyed the characters of Gage and Tess individually I didn’t believe in them as a couple. That being said, I love rock star romance books so that’s always a plus for me. This was the first book I read by Claudia Burgoa. I’m interested to read others by her to see how I like them.

My One Despair is Amazing!! The story is full of emotion, love, family and I enjoyed every minute of it. If you've read My One Regret, then you've met Tess Hades and this is her story. I had mixed feeling for her at first, but as I read her story, I began to like her alot. She's so protective of those she loves. Gage was perfect from the start, he's a good guy. Together they found everlasting love or did they? I loved seeing Kaden and Sadie and the family. Can't wait to read more of this family. ...more

I always wondered how Tess would be as an adult. She had so much heartbreak. She is an amazing and caring woman!
Now Gage....he was just so swoony *sigh*
These broken souls are so desperate for each others love. But can they get past the heartbreak and find their way back to each other?
Another emotional rollercoaster from Claudia.
Be warned..you might need some tissues!

I’m emotionally exhausted.
This book is exceptional.
Made me smile,made me confused,made me upset. Made me feel...
The story about love,survival. This kind of love that you know is forever,you can’t breathe without.
You need to read for yourself.
If you didn’t read “ My one regret “ do it. It’s about Tess family concentrate on her father.
