Love is ugly and secrets will destroy you.KAT I don’t beg. I don’t cry. And I don’t give second chances. Ream, the lead guitarist from the 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, unable to help myself. 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 had pink hair or shouted or was 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 confident cold indifference that had my nerves shooting off like jet sprinklers. Then… Ream told me he didn’t need a second chance because he was still working on his first. REAM 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.
I enjoyed this story, it still had a crazy, messed-up element to it, but it was a tad bit lighter than
and Emily’s story. Of course, certain
parts drove me crazy, the rollercoaster of these two going round-and-round, but
then again that’s what I liked about our heroine…the fact that she was stubborn
and took no-nonsense...didn’t settle. 4
Kat & Ream had something good for a few weeks while Emily was missing. They developed a bond, a friendship first that led to one amazing night together. Then Ream finds something he doesn’t like and makes assumptions…assumptions that break Kat’s heart and leaves her hurt and devastated. After this night, the two are unable to be together in the same room without fighting and hurting each other. Then the band leaves for tour and Kat begins dating someone else. When the band returns things have changed for Ream, he is not going to let Kat walk away so easily, he is determined they will be together.
"I mean it, Kat. Friend, girlfriend, or my fuckin' wife. I don't want you walking away from me when some other chick is vying for my attention because no matter what we are ... you are more important than them."
For Ream sex was never been enjoyable, it been ugly. That one night with Kat changes everything he feels, but something he sees triggers his past and he is too quick to judge. Realizing his mistake, after learning the truth about Kat, he needs to prove to her that they are great together, but Kat is stubborn and Ream has his work cut out for him. What happens when Ream's secrets are revealed, will Kat run or will she stay and fight for the man she loves.
"You make everything ugly inside of me beautiful, Kat."
Overwhelmed by You was dark, passionate and full of twists and turns. The story kept me captivated from page 1 and I will definitely be reading Haven's story…can’t wait for that one!
