Overwhelmed by You by Nashoda Rose - Review

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.

Sav's Review

Wow. Just, wow. This book was just full of mouth dropping But moments. I'm still sitting here letting it all sink in. 

This book is definitely NOT for people who are faint at heart or people who just don't like the darker books out there because trust me, this one is seriously dark. Sometimes darker than was I cared to read.

Still the book had a good plot, had good twists, and I really liked the character build up and sometimes even the humor in the book.

Ream is very very hot, and very very alpha. He is also very dark and dangerous. He doesn't want to find love, he just wants to love em and leave em. Love means getting close and getting close means his walls coming down and he can't risk the exposure. 

Kat is a very strong willed woman. She takes the bull by the horns and isn't afraid to speak her mind. She is a force to be reckoned with and Ream cannot stay away from her.

The constant back and forth between Ream and Kat really bugged me at times, I gotta say. It was almost as if having whiplash. They both come from broken pasts and they both have issues to work through but that didn't stop me from wanting to throw my kindle at the wall.

There were several twists and turns in this book. Some you see coming and some you don't. It gets deep. It gets dark. But overall I found myself constantly turning the page because I needed more answers. This wasn't my favorite book in the world but it's definitely won't be easily forgotten and for that I give it 4 Stars!
