Obviously he raised Liam to good, but Liam did not turn out quite like he thought he would. Liam has his own mind and that heart of his mind will alway lead him back to Raven. Liam, Liam, oh my goodness. This boy needs to grow-up. He throws tantrums like he is a child.
Raven opened back up to him and at the first hurdle after they connect he hurts her to the point that she almost Avant, what I want to know is WTH is in that box?!!! A great build onto the first story I am rooting for Liam and Raven. Jan 19, Lebrondae Shei rated it did not like it. This author most certainly needs a editor, NOW!!! O, yes, let's not forget, we must get the main girl pregnant again, which everyone gets told by the doctor at the same time, after a fatal car accident where she has just came out of the operating theatre and not by least, let's throw in sex, anywhere in the storyline, it doesn't matter where; as long as it shows up!!
If you love all that, then go ahead, buy these sequels, give 5 stars and let's all pretend that it doesn't take a world-class researcher, formatter, editor, inspirational, visionary and a whole lot of talent and great fantasizer to write an exceptional book to become an author!!! Sep 14, stephanie ashe rated it it was amazing. Wow I read this as an ARC and it had me all over the place. From her mom to his grandfather and mother. Liam and Raven are a couple that is growing together.
I couldn't believe the ending!!! Sep 17, Shanta Gray rated it it was amazing. First off, if you haven't read Covet please do. There is so much I want to say about Envy but I don't want to give the story away. I hate how Liam's family operates even if it means harming one of their own. For some reason I have a feeling that Calum wilI definitely be back. I can't wait for the next installment.
Jan 03, Avid rated it did not like it. Lacks connections between scenes- jumps around and lacks fluidity.
This is book 1, but drops the crumbs of a backstory as if there were a previous novel. So many obvious and glaring grammatical errors. I hate the characters.
None of them are sympathetic at all. Too ridiculous to try to read more. While the plot was intriguing, it still If I could give this NO stars on goodreads to say how much I hated this novel, I would. While the plot was intriguing, it still only gets 1 star on goodreads. Sadly, the execution was severely lacking.
Oct 02, Tarry rated it liked it. I received an arc for an honest review. The story was good but I was consistently distracted by the talk of the fat boy, it is repeated too often for my liking. I liked the way the characters developed, how Ethan's grandmother had a different side to her as compared to what was alluded to in the previous book. Unfortunately Charlene, Liam and Raven still act rather childishly, in the following book I would like to see a lot more maturity in Raven and Charlene.
Dec 18, Bewaji rated it did not like it. The synopsis for this book is a sure way to a good story. This book however is so disjointed that I have a hard time following the plot. The dialogue is so stilted and heave-ho, it is very painful to read. The book need a thorough editing. If not that I hate not finishing a book, I wouldn't have. Oct 26, Avid Reader rated it did not like it. This is a very poorly crafted book: Sep 15, Sharon Webb rated it it was amazing. Author, Amarie Avant does a fabulous job of keeping you on edge with the emotional roller coaster these two are on!!!! A muct read for the romantic!!!
Sep 15, Lynda Garcia rated it really liked it. I think "All over the place" Is the best way to describe this book. If you're looking for romance, forget it! This is a soap opera you're dumped right smack in the middle of it without knowing who, what, where or when? Imagine you started watching Days Of Our Lives when you'd never watched it before. You have no clear idea how to shape your opinion of anything since you have damn clue what's going on and why. There are about 20 characters in this book, so imagine having to understand who they are I think "All over the place" Is the best way to describe this book.
There are about 20 characters in this book, so imagine having to understand who they are and how they're involved in the main characters lives? The writing is choppy and the characters seem to go from one moment in time to the next in a non fluid way that left me confused most of the time. The main characters seem to have two emotions; Anger and sadness. Happy moments are few and far between. I find the author attempted to make Liam likeable, but he's a fucking asshole who never says what needs saying and do what needs doing where his family is concerned.
And Raven needs serious therapy. She goes from one strong emotion to another in the blink of the eye. But you feel for her because she's been dealt a shit hand by everyone around but her granny. All in all, this is a Romeo and Juliette trope where two childhood loves were wrenched from each other by his scheming family. But Liam continually let's Raven down by listening to everyone but her.
Aug 19, Michelle B. Re Re and Liam Second time reading this series, and I'm still as excited as the first time. The character development is so thorough, where you feel you know the characters. I like Raven and Liam so much, whereas they both have wore out my nerves. I guess their lack of communication is impacted by their age.
Man their sex scenes are so hot. The other characters are fierce as well, especially the grandfather. I love the Nana and Damien. Tyriq is too disrespectful. The secrets they all have keeps t Re Re and Liam Second time reading this series, and I'm still as excited as the first time. The secrets they all have keeps the suspense captivating.
Can't wait to read Crave. Jul 22, Alisa rated it really liked it.
This is just getting better and better! This book has the right amount of drama to keep you interested. There were times were you got frustrated with both Liam and Raven and of course, Raven is her extra self. Even so, the growth and development of the characters was great to watch. I really enjoyed the growth of the characters and the pace of the story. I didn't want to stop reading and would recommend this book. Sep 19, Zinzi rated it it was ok. Listen, this book is horrid.
I would not recommend it. There is a preview of book 2 and the first paragraph confused me soo much This series makes no sense. Then return it and get my money back. Feb 26, M rated it really liked it. This was good but there is so much going on, it's almost impossible to keep up with all of the characters.
Straighten up, pull it around, and get back on the track. Declan Reede's life is in a tail-spin. Although he knows what he wants, he can't see the road that will take him there. Wherever he turns, new secrets, lies, and half-truths threaten to send him crashing off-course. To deserve his family, he must fight his past mistakes and prove himself worthy. But can someone out Straighten up, pull it around, and get back on the track.

Declan finally slowly started sorting his self out. Asking help from a shrink. Finally admitting his love to Alyssa and then back. And then when everything seems to be on track I'm not gonna spoil anything here because you need to read it yourself. Every twists and turns of this story will definitely make your heart in knots. I was so eager to turn every page because I was so anxious what will happen next.
Because this made me keep wanting for more. If only we're near, I would've probaby knock on your door or climb in your window because I really can't wait. Sounds creepy but this is what you're book have done to me. If you haven't read book 0. We pick up right where we were left hanging in Decline. The author has amazed me with this book as it's better than the first two.
I couldn't put this book down. He finally realizes what the reasons are and admitting them was a major step for him. Growing up, his father always told him not to let a girl trap him or settle down at a young age. He should follow his dream of being a race car driver and that is what he did. Now, coming to terms with all the mistakes he made over the past four years and trying to fix things is not easy for him especially when there is someone out to destroy him.
He now knows exactly what he wants and can picture that life, but getting there is far from easy. Although Alyssa has been in love with Declan since high school he has done things that aren't easy to get passed. In order to work on rebuilding the relationship with her, Declan actually asks for help from the shrink he told off and is working on righting his wrongs. How many times can he be forgiven for his mistakes or ask for forgiveness? There were so many times where I felt I was watching a train wreck about to happen and there was nothing I could do to stop it. I almost threw my tablet a few times.
As this book is told in Declan's POV, the author did an incredible job telling his story. The author did a fabulous job relating details often overlooked or missed. The sexual tension between Declan and Alyssa is amazing. Each book in this series gets better and I wish I could give this more than five stars. This is definitely an author I intend to recommend and follow. I still love this series!!! I will not spoil this for anyone but the cliff hanger at the end I did not see coming, so now I really need more!!!!
In this one I am sick of Declan feeling sorry for himself and crying. I want to scream grow up. But I know its a process in healing. And he has a lot of healing. Just as things start to go his way something always throws a wrench in his plans. Its like he has the worst luck ever. Deceive is jam packed with emotions, events, twists, and turns. So much is happening I could barely turn the pages fast enough! Get ready for a roller coaster ride when you read Deceive. It was nice to see Declan trying to get his life on track.
Admitting to himself, and others, he was wrong for what he did was the first real step he has taken on the road to actually becoming a responsible adult. Asking for help was the second. After reading Deceive I'm truly rooting for Declan. I still wan Wow!! I still want to slap him sometimes for the things he says and does but not nearly as much as in the past.
Alyssa is finally acting mature when it comes to Declan. I can understand her conflicting emotions concerning their relationship. He is her first and only love. So, she wants things to work out for them. At the same time, she is afraid of being heartbroken again. I'm rooting for Alyssa to find love, peace, and contentment.
I don't write spoilers but The cliffhanger ending caught me by surprise! No, it isn't contrived. Michelle definitely ended the story with a bang!! Can't wait to read the next book in the Declan Reede Series-- Decipher. There are so many elements to this book so bear with us as we take you through. What would you do if the one person you looked up to your whole life deceived you?
He deceived your mother. Everything he ever told you a lie. The family you thought you had gone. Declan discovered that not only did Alyssa have secrets but so did so many others at Brown Plains. After years of listening to his dad the person he idolized was now gone, the person that taught him everything now gone, the person who he wanted to be proud of him gone. Never did Declan ever think his own dad was that type of person, but now he realizes what he meant buy his words over the years and what he had done to Alyssa was the last straw with Declan.
Everything seems to be moving in the right direction with Alyssa if there was no one else around, when people or family or friends seem to be around everything seems to fall to shit. They have some great dates and seems to be moving fast in the right direction. But for how long? Will Declan get his happy ever after with Alyssa and Phoebe? He needs to get back there. Well that you will have to find out by reading the book!! But once again we were taken on a roller coaster we loved the book but we would have loved to have seen more interaction between Declan and Phoebe maybe more of a bond!
We also hated the cliffhanger ending and now have to wait to see where there future lies. However, the author has climbed up the list of authors trying to kill me for the evil ending. Granted, it takes a special and talented author for me to be this upset, and she's definitely proven that! My Declan Reede's life is on a severe downward spiral.
He knows what he desperately wants, but just doesn't know how to fix it. The lies and secrets surround him, and he's having a hard time not crashing and burning. All he wants is his family back, and he's fighting with everything in him to prove himself worthy. As he sees a light at the end of the tunnel, a final attack takes everything away from him, possibly for good this time. When I finished this story, I had a hard time breathing. My heart was torn out, set on fire, stomped on to get flames out, and sitting there charred, as I wait impatiently for it to be stitched back in.
The character development is fantastic, as the author is showing the depth of her talent in writing characters that will live on in hearts forever. It's still a shock to me that I'm fully on my Declan's side, as I always take the females side, but there's something about his tortured soul that speaks to me on a different level. An intense, highly emotional, and well written story line flows perfectly. Michelle Irwin has taken her talented but diabolical evil writing up to new levels in Deceive, and I am still completely and utterly emotional, as I cried big ugly tears.
OMG Michelle you are killing me!! Don't miss out on this series, they just keep getting better and better!! I wanted to commit acts of violence not only towards my IPad but I wanted to jump into my book and beat the crap out of people. By putting Christine in the first person, it balanced things out. I think that without whatever humor there is, this would be a pretty bleak book.
I have an idea about how to take an early story I wrote and turn it into a novel. Once I turned poems into short stories. Now perhaps the short stories will serve as outlines for novels. But at my age, I am just grateful for an idea for any sort of story. I will never support myself on my writing. That sort of pressure drives writers 30 years younger than me. It is a cruel way to support yourself. I am finishing up Shot in Detroit. They are doing an issue on Detroit and asked me to send something along.
I have only written one short story in the last six months, so I want to do one or two to keep my hand in. There was a problem adding your email address. Be the first to discover new talent!
There was neve This book! Award-winning epic of loyalty and love set in s Ireland and America. I received this book from the author for an honest review! She's the really smart nerdy one, whereas her sister is the beautiful athletic one. This one is a little more racy than I usually enjoy, so beware it does have a little sex. In this one I am sick of Declan feeling sorry for himself and crying. Aside from the revelations and reconciliation, this book was also a journey of healing for Declan and much as he annoys me sometimes, I do feel his pains and am glad that he was slowly on the road to recovery.
