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 and I 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.

*Warning contains violence, sexual content, and coarse language. Mature audiences 18+*

A contemporary romance with lots of angst and a taste of dark.

My Review:

Though Overwhelmed can technically be read as a stand-alone, I do highly recommend reading Torn from You first. There is a lot that gets referenced throughout this story and I really think that it’ll help give you a better appreciation and understanding of the character relationships found here. And don’t go into this expecting a dark read like the first book. Ream is not Logan and this is not a recycled story. That being said, I really think you’ll enjoy it just as I did!

While Emily and Logan were away in what they knew was a dangerous situation, Kat and Ream found solace in each other. What began as a beautiful friendship soon blossomed into more, surprising them both. They were very guarded people and never expected to let someone in even a little, but you can’t always control who inches their way into your heart.

But then a long kept secret is revealed and everything falls apart. Ream, not knowing how to handle things, storms out, leaving Kat hurt and angry. While he was away on tour, she had plenty of time to build more walls around her heart, ensuring that no one would be able to get close enough to hurt her again.

Now he’s home and things are more confusing than ever. He wants her back and will stop at nothing to have her again. She knows that he has secrets of his own, but can she learn to trust him again? Just as things start to look up for them both, his twisted past catches up to them and threatens to ruin everything once and for all. Will they be able to make it through hand in hand, or will everything prove to be too overwhelming for them both?

When I saw the animosity that Kat and Ream had for each other in Torn, I knew that I wanted their story. I had to know what transpired between the two to make them act this way and I had a lot of thoughts floating around in my head. I was pleased to be very wrong with each and every guess that I had made.

I wasn't a huge Ream fan when I was first introduced to him, but I’m pleased to say that I now hold a very special place for him in my heart. He’s a complex and broken man, and I continuously wondered about the things that he had gone through to make him into the man that he is today.

“Sex is primal. And it’s ugly as hell. I know that better than anyone. But with you … with you it’s all beauty. You managed to obliterate the ugly, Kat.”

Kat is strong willed and very guarded. She’s a great friend to those around her but you could tell that something was holding her back. I absolutely loved watching Ream break down all of her defenses until she had nothing left to hide.

One thing that can help make or break a story in my eyes is the supporting characters and this series definitely has one of the best group of friends ever. Crisis, my personal favorite, was not only there for Kat when she needed a friend, but he also brought a fun, comedic vibe to the table.

“Woot!” Crisis yelled and threw his arms in the air. “Busted. Next time, eyes on the road instead of the babe.”

Nashoda has a way of pulling you deep into the world that she’s created. Her stories are captivating and have just the right amount of sugar and spice blended together so it doesn't leave a bad taste in your mouth. In fact, it’ll leave you wanting more.

Overwhelmed by You gets 5 well deserved stars. It had amazing characters, a great story, and a twist that kept things interesting. If you’re looking for a fantastic read that’s sure to hold your attention then I recommend getting this NOW.

And be prepared ... Overwhelmed features the prologue for Perfect Chaos which is Deck and Georgie's story, and it's definitely going to leave you wanting more!!!
