Overwhelmed by You by Nashoda Rose

Overwhelmed by You (Tear Asunder, #2)Overwhelmed by You by Nashoda Rose
My rating: 5 of 5 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.

Which is why LA Lawyer Alex Hardy irritates the crap out of her. He’s a lawyer who practices radical honesty in a city famous for make believe. When an actor who thinks he can buy or cheat his way out of anything attempts to discredit Calla, Alex (with a crooked nose for trouble) champions her desperate cause.

Release Day Blitz Time After Time by Melody Foster


"On the night of her best friend's wedding, Becca Lawson is shocked to run into the man who once shattered her heart completely. One wild, passionate night is all it takes to stir up long-lost emotions. Becca knows her feelings for him cannot be real, and will not be reciprocated. Fearing the worst, she shuts herself off completely, denying herself the one true chance of love.

Young, handsome, and rich, Austin Blackstone is a man who seems to have it all. But inside, his heart yearns for the girl who left an unforgettable impression on him seven years ago. When a chance encounter brings him face-to-face with her on a tropical paradise, all the feelings hidden deep inside his heart threaten to spill over... and force him to forsake everything he has built. 

Set on a beautiful, Caribbean island, Time After Time is a sweet love story of second chances and new opportunities. As old flames reignite and forgotten passions burn strong, can two people from very different walks of life forget their rules long enough to let love in?"


I’m Melody Foster. I'm a regular girl who loves long walks on the beach with my beloved Airedale terrier Oman. "Oh, man!" were the words I said when I first met my puppy. He is not a puppy anymore...

Chocolate and coffee are my life while I write. A good laugh at myself is my medicine for self-criticism.

I’m extremely thankful to all my readers for making a new author’s dreams come true.
