On the Flap
He broke me, he lied to me, he used me and then he left me. Physically and emotionally I was broken and not just a little broken, I was obliterated. I was in so many pieces it took a long time for me to even gather enough pieces to even begin rebuilding. But, the important thing is I did. I’m not one-hundred percent yet, heck I probably will never be completely healed but that’s okay because I made it. I’m alive. I use my pain as fuel now. When I want to give up I think of all my hurt and anger and it pushes me to keep going.
A year and half ago I died. It was my mistake and if I could do it over again I would, but I can’t. What’s done is done. All I can do now is move forward and try to forget I ever loved Cutter Daniels.

I could not wait for this book to be released. It is the second book in JJ Dorn’s Love & Hate series. When we left them last, Paige was recovering from a nearly fatal car accident and broken heart courtesy of Cutter Daniels and Cutter was suffering from guilt and trying to come to grips with the idea that he may have lost the love of his life forever. In her Acknowledgments JJ Dorn states, "I hope they (her stories) continue to suck you in and keep you up into the wee hours of the night craving more." Mission accomplished! I could not stop reading this book. I had to know what happened to Paige and Cutter.
There were so many times I lost it while reading this book. By losing it, I mean either I was crying a river, shaking my fist in the air out of frustration or swooning over Cutter and his declarations of love for Paige. I really didn’t see how Paige was going to survive after being knocked down so many times. It's no wonder she relied on others for strength. As the story moved on she became stronger and grew more into her own and Cutter had more conviction in his belief that they belonged together. When everything was said and done, I was happy but also suffering from one hell of a book hang over.

You can always find me with my nose in my Kindle reading a romance novel starring a tough talking, hard loving alpha male and sassy heroine. For the past six years reading has been my addiction. I am always up for a good read and am excited when I get any suggestions. My other loves are working out and spending time with my hubs, family and friends.
