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.

 I knew it! I knew you weren't the dickhead we thought you were, Ream! 

  Overwhelmed by You is the story of Kat and Ream. We met them in Torn from You, Kat being Emily's best friend and Ream being Logan's bandmate. We knew shit went down between them...hatred spewed back and forth, but this underlying sexual tension always seems to sizzle regardless. In this book, we find out what caused the riff and how they move on from there. 

 Much like with Torn from You, I'm going with a vague review as to avoid spoiling the ride. Ms. Rose is a master of suspense. These books are a perfect balance of sexual tension, angst, darkness and did I mention sexual f$ckhot-ness. (Is that a word? No? Oh well) 

 Ream has a change of heart from page one in this book. I was expecting this brooding, dickhead that we knew in Logan's book but he captures your heart from the start. It's clear he's got huge scars from his past. Sexual relationships don't come easy for him and he's chosen to fall for a girl that is tough as nails and is battling her own inner secrets for self-protection. Can he break through her walls, get her to give him a second chance? Kat is a tough nut to crack but he's climbing in... 

  "I'm back and the only way I'm running again is toward you."

 Ream is my kind of hero. He's all alpha hot but, much like Logan was, he can be sweet and endearing. In the bedroom, he's all about control and wow! I'll slightly spoiler this by saying he was denying her for days and it wasn't only Kat begging for release in that chapter. Wow. Take. Me. Now. Ream. But I digress. 

  "Fire playing with fire only leads to an uncontrollable inferno. You ready for that, Kitcat?"

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

If you're looking for a book with a great balance of everything alpha, romantic, steamy, dark and suspenseful, Nashoda Rose delivers in spades. This series is growing into one where we get to know each secondary character book to book. We get to see Logan and Emily progress in their relationship, see more of Deck and Georgie, comic relief with man whore Crisis. The reader feels a part of their clan. 

 Like with Torn from You, I'd avoid reading a plethora of reviews prior. In fact, she's an auto-love for me...I didn't read one. Going in blind with her books is the best plan. Looking forward to Crisis' book next up in the series. I feel comic relief with him but the heroine she's chosen...he's going to have to get serious fast!
