Love is ugly and secrets will destroy you.


I don’t beg. I don’t cry. And I don’t give second chances. 

Ream, the lead guitarist of the rock band Tear Asunder, deserves a gold medal for best dick move ever when he ran the moment he discovered my secret after two days of hot sex. Then he brings some chick to my coming home party from the hospital—after being shot. 

I hate him. 

Until … 

Ream’s six foot two frame unfolds out of the car after being gone on tour for eight months. I stared. And in my defense, any girl would stare. It would almost be rude not to because Ream was the type of guy who stood out. Not because he was loud and obnoxious. No, it was because he was the complete opposite. Subtle and dangerously quiet. If he spoke, you’d better hope he liked you because otherwise you’d be falling at his feet begging for mercy. Except me … I don’t beg—ever. 

But when our eyes locked, it was Ream’s steady confidence that had my nerves shooting off like jet sprinklers. 


Ream told me he didn’t need a second chance because he was still working on his first.


Sex is ugly. It’s using someone for your own narcissistic pleasure. I did it, but hated it—until her. She was unfuckinexpected. Then I had to wreck our beginning with my screwed up past. I don’t deserve her, but I’m selfish and I’m taking her anyway. This is who I am and it’s too late to change me.

Blog Tour Review-Jo

"Torn From You (Tear Asunder #1)" was one of my favorite books of last year. I loved Emily and Logan's story so I had high expectations for this, the second book in the series. And I wasn't disappointed. Nashoda Rose has delivered another brilliant story.

"Overwhelmed by You" is all about Kat and Ream. The pair were both featured in the first book but this time it was their turn to take the limelight.

Kat and Ream had something special between them but then it all fell apart courtesy of misunderstandings and rash decisions leaving her devastated and heart broken.  Two years on and the rock star was back and he had one thing on his mind... he wanted his woman back he was not going to take no for an answer.

"I want us back. And I'll take you any way I can have you.Even if its just friends, Kat. 
I'll take it- for now of course. But the constant anger and pain we're causing one 
another is destroying our beginning, and our beginning was something fuckin' special." 

So was Ream going to be deterred from getting his girl back? Hell no!! He was not a man that gave up on something he wanted and he wanted Kat with a passion like no other. I challenge you ladies not to fall in love with Ream because I found it impossible not too! He was moody secretive, domineering and fiercely possessive. Yes, he was all alpha-male and dripping with sexiness!

"My past...it's screwed me up. Once I'm in, I won't let you go. I can't. Its who I am and it's too 
late to change. You have to get that. I need you to get that, Kat. So, you need to be damn sure."

Kat, also affectionately known as Kit-Kat by Ream, was the perfect woman for him. She was strong, feisty and stubborn. This girl was no push over and Ream was going have to work extra hard to earn a place in her heart.

"Sex is primal. And it's ugly as fuckin' hell. I know that better then anyone. 
But with you....with you it's all beauty. You managed to obliterate the ugly, Kat." 

The story of Kat and Ream was full of angst and exciting sexual tension that just kept on building. I pretty much thought that I knew the way the story was going to go but, boy, did I get it wrong! Events took an unexpected turn that took me completely by surprise. This led to a series of twists that had me on the edge of my seat and caused my pulse rate to sky rocket!

"He'd lied to me, he fought to open me up, and when he did, it was beautiful. 
And then he ripped apart the beautiful and made it ugly."

I was so lost in this story that one minute I had 3 hours of reading to do and the next minute I had 40 minutes left!! The time just flew and suddenly I was panicking because the end was in sight and I wasn't any closer to Kat and Ream getting their happy ending. I worried that maybe I wasn't going to get one which would have been heartbreaking. 

" Ream didn't just break us. He executed us." 

Would Kat and Ream finally wiped out their many demons and together find their happy ever after or was it all too late?

"Baby, you're the safest place I've ever been. 
You're the only place I'll ever belong. And you belong with me." 

I truly loved this story and it is turning out to be a brilliant series. Even though this is a series set around the members of a band (Tear Asunder) it is completely different to any other books from this genre that I've read. The author focuses more on the characters friendships rather then the band being the center of attention. I loved catching up with Emily and Logan, their close friends and the other band members that are featured throughout the story. I'm really enjoying getting to know all of the characters from the series so far and I can't wait for book 3 in the series!

"Overwhelmed by You" gets 4.5 angst filled hearts from me!

Excerpt: Prologue

I swung the statue down onto his skull again and again. The sound of crushing bone crackled throughout the room. Blood splattered my green T-shirt like a mist of rain. I didn’t care. Not one bit. He destroyed her. He deserved this. Images of the bruises on her arms, the puncture marks, blurred my vision. 

She watched me kill him. Sitting on the floor, dazed with a glassy look in her eyes. This was my fault. I let this happen to her. I didn’t protect her. I threw the statue aside. It made a loud thud as it hit the wood floor, and she jerked. I glanced at the needles on the bedside table. The yellow elastic band. I was glad he was dead. I strode over to her, picked her frail, weightless body up, and ran. Her beauty was wilting. My angel. I had done that.


“Babe … You’re going to fuckin’ kill me.” Body tightening, I groaned as my dick jerked in her mouth. “Ahh, Christ.” She withdrew then circled the tip with her tongue as her hand cupped my balls, only to slide a finger down further to caress between my butt cheeks. Holy fuck, I’d never been blowed like this before—ever. Shit, who was I kidding? I never let a woman have this kind of control over me. If I had … I didn’t like to remember it.

The heat of her mouth surrounded me again, and she slowly took all of me until her lips touched my balls. I nearly came right then as I swore beneath my breath, my fingers fisting in her hair.


Her silky moisture felt like I was wrapped in velvet. She slowly slid back and my hands curled into the sheet as the pressure increased until I slipped from her mouth. She took a breath then swallowed me again. I was so turned on, I couldn’t even think straight. Watching her take me like that … God, how the fuck did I ever get off before her?

Her head bobbed up and down faster, then harder, and all I could hear was her sweet mouth sucking my cock like it was her Popsicle.

I closed my eyes. Jesus, I never wanted it to end.

Harder. Suck me, harder.

My eyes flew open and I stiffened. No. Don’t ruin this. Fuck.

But it always did.

Be good and it won’t hurt.

I was breathing too hard. I was too tense. It would hurt more if I was tense.


Ask me for more.

No. No, more.


Ask me nicely.

Mo … re. Plea … se.

Fuck no. Jesus, why?

Because I hated this and I needed to end it and get the fuck out—fast. Letting her go down on me was a mistake. I never let a chick put her mouth me. Shit, what had I been thinking? I thought it might be different after spending two weeks with her. I liked her, damn it. But I couldn’t do this.

I grabbed her by the shoulders. “Get off me.”

Her magnetic blue eyes widened, and I felt her hand jerk on my cock. “What?”

“I said get the fuck off me.” My hands tightened on her shoulders and I felt the familiar sickness rolling in my stomach. I had to get the hell out of here. I should’ve never done this with her. I didn’t do sweet and slow; I did fast and hard and I was out of there before the bullshit barreled into me.

I went to roll out from under her, but she found my hand that had a death grip on the sheet. Her fingers slowly pried open my fist, and then she entwined them with mine and squeezed.

I looked down at her and for a moment I thought maybe I could … “No.” I said the word, but didn’t move.

She lowered her head, but kept her eyes on me while her tongue teased the head of my cock. She kissed it, gentle and tender, something I’d never had before. And I wanted it, but chicks sucking my cock was off limits. It was them having power that let the demons in.

I groaned as her tongue flicked over the sensitive tip. My fingers dug into her flesh and I fought the need to throw her away from me and, at the same time, push her head down on my cock, forcing her to take me deeper.

“I want to taste you. Come for me,” she said.

I couldn’t. Not like this. She had too much of me already. Fuck this. Screw all of it. I pushed her off me and her hand slipped from my cock as she fell to the side.


I ignored her as I sat up and swung my legs over the side of the bed. I went to get up when her arms came around my neck.

“What do you need?”

“To leave.” I reached down for my jeans lying on the floor. This was stupid. I should’ve never hooked up with her. She was my bandmate’s girl’s best friend.

I went to stand when she grabbed my arm and pulled me back until I lay on the bed. “Jesus. I don’t want to fuck you, Kat.” I knew it was a lie because I wanted to fuck this girl bad.
