Review for Overwhelmed by You by Nashoda Rose four-stars

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.

Overwhelmed by You by Nashoda Rose

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

“It was two cars colliding, bend then broken now fusing together.”

Kat and Ream together again, what happened to them in the first book and what secrets are they hiding? You will find all those answers and more in this sexy, dark, twisty story. Let me first start by saying that there is just something special about the way Nashoda Rose writes her stories. I get so invested in the journey she takes me on and I. Can’t. Stop.

Ream made the book for me. I really, REALLY liked him. He was funny and bossy and super protective of Kat. I really did love his caveman ways. He was also so very broken and lost and Kat makes him want to try to fix all his pieces.

“Do orange juice and milk go together, Ream? No. They can sit beside one another and look good, but mix them up and it’s complete anarchy. That’s us.”
“Orange Creamsicles.”
“It’s milk and orange and they go damn good together.”

Kat took me a bit to warm up to. I found her a bit annoying and stand- offish at times. Honestly, she drove me batshit crazy for the first 40% of the book. She did totally come around for me and when she chooses a side, she sticks with it!! She’s sassy and stubborn and has secrets of her own.

Mistakes are made, past demons haunt them and misunderstanding keep them apart but once Ream decides enough is enough and Kat is his, he stops at NOTHING to make her his. He was a persistent boy and HOT as HELL while doing it.

Ream and Kat’s sexual Chemistry is off the charts and in the bedroom…Explosive!! But Ream likes to be in charge and he has demons that have damaged his sexy soul.

“Jesus, it was like his voice pranced across my skin and fucked me.”

It really is heartbreaking when the whole story unfolds and my heart ached for Ream. Crazy shit is revealed, disturbing moments unraveled and the darker side comes out to play. Although, not as dark as book one, at about 70% shit starts to hit fan.

“You make everything ugly inside me beautiful, Kat.”

There were still a few plot points that didn’t COMPLETELY come together for me and few moments I was thinking…”huh,” but it was still a very enjoyable read. I’m excited to see what’s next for this series and SUPER excited for Deck’s book!
