Overwhelmed by You, Tear Asunder, Nashoda Rose.
Review from Jeannie zelos book reviews

I love the sometimes OTT drama and emotion that New Adult books provide. I like to vary my reading, jumping around genres and sometimes I just need that deeper emotion, even when it means suspending realism, that New Adult provides. I really enjoyed the first book in this series, and was pleased to get this second one for review.
So, book one was Logan and Emily, and in that book we met Kat and Ream. Kat is Emily’s long time best friend, and a huge support to her after all the terror of the trauma she went through. It was clear she and band member Ream had a fling that ended badly – every time they met there were some really acrimonious words, but we never really got to know what had happened. It’s over two years now since that happened, and Kat has recently started dating local gallery owner Lance. He’s suave and charming, but so far they’ve done no more than a handful of dates and some chaste kisses. Kats very protective of herself after she opened up to Ream and he left…now he and the band are back, finished their tour and living at the farm for the next year. Logan tells them both they need to sort things out, stop the agreesive bitching, but it seems they can’t meet without sparks flying and not always in a good way. Ream isn’t happy about Lance, but Kat is clear – he had his chance and discarded her.
So we’ve a book full of deep emotion, dark secrets ( what exactly did she tell Ream that made him leave and her feel so discarded, and left her so cross, edgy, self protective) and lots of edge of seat danger. The story plays out quickly, jumping from one incident of drama into the next, barely pausing. That moment when Kat sees….that was heartbreaking, and I was wracking my brains trying to come up with plausible reasons, mentally shouting “no- no – nooo..!!!”. It seemed so clear cut though – but good authors like Nashoda seem to revel in making us believe something is – when it isn’t…confused? You will be 😉 That was just a perfect example of what I love about the NA genre, so cleverly written to make me think something that led to heartbreak and so much more.
This genre is full of events that aren’t particularly realistic, but the reader needs to suspend cynicism to get the best enjoyment and so it was here. There’s enough realism worked in to make events feel genuine, even if your brain says “no that wouldn’t/couldn’t happen” It’s a great read, one I enjoyed, sex; hot, sensual, erotic scenes, and a decent backstory bringing us more of the story and characters introduced in the first book. There are two more planed and I’ll be lining up to read them!
Stars: Four and a half.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
