First off, let me say that if you have not read USED, book 1 then I highly suggest you stop reading this review and read it before you come back here. I am going to be as spoiler free as possible but some things are hard to not ruin especially if you haven't read the first book...
Ok just whoa, this book was absolutely amazing. This is the story of Denver and Ransom. It picks up right where book 1 left off. I really enjoyed USED and was over the top excited for FREED and boy it didn't let me down. Denver has been hurt, used by the people that should love her most. She doesn't trust, she doesn't defend herself and she thinks she is worthless. Ransom is just freakin' amazing. He is loving, understanding, trusting, and is just one of the best book boyfriends I have met. He is also pretty damn kinky.
"Submissive. A word that I'm pretty sure I'd never even said aloud before a few nights ago. A word I would never have thought applied, much less appealed to me."
"Yes, you're a fighter and a lover. Best of both worlds."
Lynetta does an amazing job of putting you there, in the moment. You can easily close your eyes and envision yourself there. This book flows great, the characters are great, and the side characters are absolutely amazing. It keeps you wanting more and I really hope we get MORE to the story and MORE of the side characters. You see a whole new side to Ransom and Denver and you see their relationship blossom into this beautiful thing. The layers slowly peel back and reveal the heart. There is love and loss and proof that with the right person any hurdle can be tackled. There is also a zinger thrown in there that you never expect and it literally made me gasp. I highly recommend this series to all. I give it 4.5 exceptional stars
Since the dawn of time, Lynetta Halat has lived to read and has written innumerable stories and plays. A lover of good books, bad boys, and kickass tunes, she'd always dreamt of penning books that people could connect with and remember. She also has a secret penchant for wringing the emotions out of unsuspecting readers, and she collects reader's tears in much the same way that wine connoisseurs collect their favorite vintage. Her first novel, Every Rose, was the perfect catalyst to launch her into the world of publishing, effectively burrowing her way into the hearts and minds of readers throughout the world. Everything I've Never Had was her follow-up adult romance novel. Now, she has penned Used, a New Adult Romance that she hopes sinks its teeth into you and doesn't let go.
Her love of the English language prompted her to pursue a Master's degree in English from Old Dominion University in Virginia, where she also minored in snark and interpretive dance. She lives somewhere along the Mississippi Gulf Coast with her adorable husband, two amazing sons, and two loveable dogs. When she's not writing riveting stories, she likes to focus on her macramé art and her scouring of eBay, where she buys locks of hair from her favorite rock stars, most especially Bret Michaels and Dave Grohl.
