Review ~ Overwhelmed by You by Nashoda Rose

Overwhelmed by You (Tear Asunder, #2)Title: Overwhelmed by You
Author: Nashoda Rose
Series: Tear Asunder #2
Genre: Dark Contemporary Romance
Published: May 27th 2014

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.

This is a dark series that I love and again Nashoda Rose took me on emotional journey that tore my heart to shreds. I thought that Kat was broken, but Ream… OMG, he is the one that is devastatingly broken. The way the story built up and the bomb was dropped… It shattered me!

Kat has her secrets, and they weren't revealed immediately. I like how the author holds this information close and kept me guessing. Learning how Ream dealt with it was so sweet, and made me fall for him that little bit more. She is a tough girl and pushes her emotion aside and is the one that holds everyone together. I loved how Ream took her out of her comfort zone and made her open up.

Ream… Holy hell he is one possessive control freak, but as his secrets were revealed, it tore into my heart and I realised the depths that he would go to, to save the people he loves. His past was darker than I realised, but shaped him into the beautiful person he is now. It was gut wrenching, learning his secrets and what he sacrificed… Such a beautiful guy!

It amazes me how Nashoda sucks me into her stories. They have a dark edge that have you squirming, but you need to keep reading to find out if it is going to be good or bad. She creates damaged characters that you want to see fixed and hope they are able to find happiness. I am definitely keen to read more from this series and the spinoff too!

Torn from You #1


  1. Oh Sweet Mary. I need to move this one up the list. I won it a couple weeks back before life went haywire. I loved the previous one and am so glad to see this one totally worked for ya!

  2. I already have the 1st one I think. I'm pretty sure I bought it because of you. Perhaps I'll work it in during the read-a-thon.

  3. Those master authors that can hold the information perfectly - keeping you guessing happily without frustrating you - are not very common. Glad you enjoyed.
