Title: Overwhelmed by You
Author: Nashoda Rose
About the Book:
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.
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.

A contemporary romance with lots of angst
Ms. Rose...you did it again. You made me love a dark, angsty book. Overwhelmed by You is book #2 in the Tear Asunder series. The first book (and novella) was dark and full of unexpected twists. This one is no different. Just when I thought things were calm for Kat & Ream...BAM! More angst and surprises.
It picks up 2 years after book one. I did not see Kat's life heading the way it did, but I loved it. Also, I was in way prepared for her secret! WOW! Talk about a doozy!
Ream is broken. So very broken. But, he loves Kat and promises to make her his. Just when things were good and I thought they would get their HEA, something happens to change that.
I am really looking forward to more from this author. She has won me over with this series!
