I fell in love with her when I was seventeen.
She brought me to my knees when I was twenty.
I loved her against reason.
I loved her against hope.
I loved her against all odds.
Now she's back, a constant reminder of what I lost, what could have been.
I hate her. 
I resent her.
I still love her. 
Can I forgive her...
Will she be my end once again or my beginning?

STANDALONE within a series. New Adult Contemporary Romance: Strong language and sexual content, not intended for readers under 18.

My Thoughts

COMPLICATE ME was filled with heartache and angst. UNDO ME is in a completely different realm - complete and total devastation.

Aubrey was one of my favorite characters in COMPLICATE ME and I was really looking forward to knowing her story. She didn't have a major role in the second book of the Good Ol' Boys series, FORBID ME, but the glimpse that I did get to see, I knew her story was going to be rough. And oh man was it. 

I loved finding out how Aubrey and Dylan met - she was fiesty and defending her friend, and then learning how they eventually got together. The tender moments between them were my favorites like when Dylan would make Aubrey place her hand over his heart so that she could feel his heartbeat for her. To calm her. To reassure her. His love for her exuded from him.

But when things fell apart (can't really say why because SPOILERS), Dylan was the womanizer, the jerk, and sometimes unforgivable. And Aubrey had her own role in their demise and secrets that she kept for far too long. I wondered how would their love be redeemed? How could their love survive?

I'm not always the fan of the Alpha Male - yes they love their women hard, but the women they don't love are just casualties left in their wake. Sometimes that is difficult for me to read. I would be like how Aubrey is at the beginning of UNDO ME - telling Dylan off - in fact, I was that girl. For now, I'll just take these boys (men) in books, thank you very much.

I read the first books in the series one right after the other and I am thankful that book four, CRAVE ME, isn't out yet. I needed this time to breathe. I need the time for my emotions to regulate, for my heart to heal. Time to recover. Because there is a lot of sorrow in UNDO ME for sure. 

I joke and say that I curse my friend for recommending these books to me because I am destroyed. And yet, I give her much love because she's introduced me to books that I couldn't put down. She knew that I would like them and she was right.

  1. It's difficult for me to read these types of romances too sometimes but you just can't help but love an alpha male!
