Overwhelmed by You by Nashoda Rose
This is the second book I have read from Nashoda Rose and I loved it as much as I loved Torn from You. I cannot get enough of the Tear Asunder series and the characters. The series is not for the faint of heart, it has dark and serious storylines. However, this one did not begin with darkness and brutality; it built slowly and was exposed close to the ending of the story.
The story began with Kat and Ream becoming friends and moving that relationship to lovers. It was total bliss and rainbows until Ream discovered Kat’s secret and pretty much lost his cool and made a dick move. Ream tries to make amends before he leaves on tour but he really tore the budding relationship to pieces. Kat is done.
Ream is the lead guitarist for the rock band Tear Asunder and has returned from an eight month tour. He has not given up on Kat and returns with one thing in mind. To get Kat back!!
The wooing of Kat by Ream is sweet and it is intense. He is determined to repair the broken relationship. One of my favorite lines by Ream is: Ream told me he didn’t need a second chance because he was still working on his first.
Overwhelmed is a perfect title for the characters in the book. Ream is overwhelmed at the beginning of the relationship due to his own issues that come up with Kat’s secret. He has a history of darkness and brutality that he keeps hidden from everyone. Kat is overwhelmed by the intensity and relentlessness of Ream to continue the relationship. I absolutely adored Ream. He worked hard to repair the damage and pain that he caused in the relationship.
Just when things seem to be coming together for the two love birds….. Nashoda lowers the boom and gives the reader a dark twist to the story. Ream is forced to deal with his past. A past he thought he had put to rest.
I recommend this book to anyone that likes their contemporary romance with dark twists. It will not disappoint. I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book in the series.
