Overwhelmed By You (Tear Asunder #2) by Nashoda Rose with Giveaway, Prologue, Playlist & Review

Overwhelmed by you blog tour banner


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.

I swung the statue down onto his skull again and again.
The sound of crushing bone crackled throughout the room.
Blood splattered my green T-shirt like a mist of rain.
I didn’t care. Not one bit.
He destroyed her.
He deserved this.
Images of the bruises on her arms, the puncture marks, blurred my vision.
She watched me kill him.
Sitting on the floor, dazed with a glassy look in her eyes.
This was my fault.
I let this happen to her. I didn’t protect her.
I threw the statue aside. It made a loud thud as it hit the wood floor, and she jerked. I glanced at the needles on the bedside table. The yellow elastic band.
I was glad he was dead.
I strode over to her, picked her frail, weightless body up, and ran.
Her beauty was wilting. My angel. I had done that.

5 stars
This was such a good book I didn't want to put it down for anything. I loved Ream. His intensity, his passion, his take no shit cocky attitude. Ok, sometimes, I'd like to smack him for that last one, but it's understandable. I loved Kat, she was fierce and independent, loyal to a fault, and she took no shit either. I loved that when he came back, he made no mistake in his intentions with Kat. He wanted her, and he was damn well going to have her. One way or another. They were made for each other, that's for sure. They each pulled some seriously shitty moves on the other. But that's what happens when you're riding that fine line between love and hate. It was more love than hate, and not wanting to give up control than anything. I felt badly for everything that they each had endured separately, and then the crap that they endured together. I loved all the characters in the book that I was supposed to, and hated all those lying manipulative bastards as well. This was so well written, I had tears in my eyes when I found out about the things that Ream had to endure. There are some scenes in this book that just mess with your head. I'm glad that Kat was forced to look at the behavior and question it. What happened next totally took me by surprise and just stunned the hell out of me. There was a lot of that the last third of the book I'd have to say. I'm hoping that the next book is for Crisis. Because I'm dying to know what's going on there.
