    There was a lot of cussing from our heroine, Carrie, on the very first pages but that was okay. I can deal with a heroine who is a bitch with a side of attitude. I mean that's loads better than a "too stupid to live" heroine. But then BAM!!! - our hero's inner monologue and I quote: "I am kind of a nerd but not really, my family says the only thing that saves me from that distinction is my hot as fuck body and my matinee idol looks." Oooookay. Really? Then it got worst: "Whatever. I like learning There was a lot of cussing from our heroine, Carrie, on the very first pages but that was okay.

And I think my safety friends won't like this one but to those who like her books and are used to her writing style, you'll like this one. The story was about Josh and Carrie, both 17. Carrie moved to Sea Crest to live with her father. On her first day of school there, she met Josh. They wanted each other but they didn't want to be the first one to give in. They wanted the other to get jealous. Just to make each other go crazy. Both of them had strong personalities and Carrie had abandonment and trust issues because of her mother who neglected her and she just raised herself. She didn't have a good childhood and because of that, I understand why she acted like that. She was annoying at times. And she was a runner. And there were issues/ obstacles along the way. And I can say that this book has more issues than the usual books that Jordan silver write. No epilogue yet but there's a second book about Matt, older brother of Josh. SAFETY: (view spoiler)[No cheating. No love triangle. There's OW drama about his past sexual partner. Matt's girlfriend in this book caused problems too. There's also OW and OM they used to make the other get jealous. She even tried to pull a guy to kiss him but Josh stopped it. There's a pushing away from the h. It was mentioned that Carrie's mom beat her and starved her when she was younger. There's also a few attempted rape, from when she was younger and also when she moved to Sea Crest. Usually, I hate attempted rape/sexual abuse/rape but I don't have to worry when it's Jordan Silver's book because nothing happened. She wasn't even touched. It's more of a plan only or being kidnapped but that's it. She's a virgin and He's a manwhore before he met her. No condom used between them. And I assumed he used condoms in the past. I also like to add that he had taken virgins before her. (hide spoiler)]

    Wow. I gave Jordan Silver one more shot because I have seen a few people say they enjoy her books and I figured the one awful book I read by her might have just been a bad one. Well, this one was also disturbing and as a romance, just so bad. The main reason is that the "hero" is abusive and controlling over the heroine.

It's no fun seeing a messed up immature heroine being groomed to want to be with the abusive hero and take what he dishes out. He spanks and whips her and "disciplines" her against her will and basically forces her to constantly do what he wants until she just "decides" that's what she wants. This was no BDSM relationship where the sub and Dom consent to having this type of relationship, the heroine gave NO consent to this. Now she was annoying in her own right, she was immature, snobby and did not talk like the supposed smart teenager she was supposed to be. The hero kept thinking how "dominant" he was but really he only cared about himself and wanted the heroine to be exactly what he wanted her to be (and was willing to hit, manipulate and oh yeah almost choke her once to get his way). A real dominant alpha man cares most about his lady and her welfare and what she needs, he was a psycho abuser who only thought he was the shit. This story disturbed me because it was supposed to be a young adult romance and instead I read about an abusive controlling asshole and a dysfunctional relationship where I just wanted her to get away from him and get some therapy.

    Passion is one of those books that are really good at making you wary about reading books by independent authors It required A LOT of editing before publication: basic punctuation, like the full stop, were severely lacking.

    I just can't. Just can't. 4% in and all I can think is I can't. The writing was from back and forth from each POV, but it mostly consisted of thoughts and how great they were. I had to DNF when his thoughts told me they argued and he won. No showing, just a lot of 'whiny teenagers pissed at the world' thoughts. Also, I get teenagers swear. It's normal. However, the amount of swearing done just sounded like a bunch of rich kids trying to act gangsta. It just doesn't work. Just... no.

    Wow! Joshua Steele is... just, wow! He is another super Alpha, I can only imagine what he'll be like ten years from now. Sheesh! I read a few reviewers that thought he was overboard with his possessiveness with Carissa at such a young age, but all I can say is "context", people. Think about it. Her mother's an abuser, physically, mentally, and verbally. She has neglected her daughter to the point of abandonment. Then her father, out of guilt because he hasn't been there for her in the past, puts Wow! Joshua Steele is... just, wow! He is another super Alpha, I can only imagine what he'll be like ten years from now. Sheesh! I read a few reviewers that thought he was overboard with his possessiveness with Carissa at such a young age, but all I can say is "context", people. Think about it. Her mother's an abuser, physically, mentally, and verbally. She has neglected her daughter to the point of abandonment. Then her father, out of guilt because he hasn't been there for her in the past, puts no boundaries on her, and even though he doesn't intend for it to be this way, he has also abandoned her. She needs someone to care enough to tell her "no" to things that could potentially harm her. She needs boundaries to feel safe and loved. Enter Joshua. Please, people. Remember that this is fiction. There must be some suspension of disbelief when reading fiction. That means that you have to have a willingness to suspend your critical faculties and believe the unbelievable. I am a thirty-nine year old mother of an almost twenty year old and a seventeen year old. I would freak out if some teenager tried to take over my child's life, too. BUT, I also am fully involved with my children, and neither of them would need a Joshua to do my parenting for me. PLUS, believing the unbelievable here, is that Joshua, though fallible in the story, truly loves Carrie, completely and thoroughly. He isn't selfish in his feelings for her. I'm not sure that there are any teenagers like that in the world. AGAIN, it is fiction. So let it go, haters! Anyway... I absolutely wished that there had been someone like that when I was in high school. I needed a hero, but everyone was in their own little world. No one saw me. But, I met my man, and five weeks and two days later we had moved in together. It may have started as lust at first sight, but it was meant to be. So insta-love? Yeah, I believe it happens. He was my first, in every way, and he is still my heart and life even now, twenty-two years later and still going strong. So, in my mind, Joshua and Carissa could happen. Is it likely? Maybe not, but I loved it. There was the typical high school angst in it. Joshua reacted to Carrie at on point, like the teenager he was: immature. He recognized what he did, and he did his best to make it up to her. I wasn't left with the opinion that they were more mature than their ages would permit. Joshua was a focused young man that knew what he wanted, starting with his college choice, his future career, and then when he met Carissa, she was put at the top of the list of his goals. My god, were those sex scenes between them hot or what? I loved how Joshua took his time with her because of her innocence. She wasn't just another notch on his belt, and he treated her like a princess. But even before he took her, took her, the things he did with her? Lord, I think I swooned a bit. He was so... no words. No words. And then after he made her completely his, *wink-wink*, things just heated up even more. Dang, that girl can write a love scene. So, bravo, Jordan. Once again, you've captured everything that makes a good story come alive for me. Keep up the good writing! And as usual, with Jordan Silver, you always get the same thing: NO CHEATING. Thank you very much! HEA

It goes on like this shifting POV in a FAST manner, like 100 words fast. I can barely follow what's happening. Chapter 1 She arrives at the RAINY town and says fuck this fuck that I hate it here. He knows there's a newcomer. Chapter 2 she arrives at her classroom at biology, he already sniffing her and she goes "omg he sniffed me" LIKE what how where what happened hold the horses. There's literally no narration, things are just happening non stop. This feels like reading a bad quality Twilight fanfiction/recap.

I cried a little but mostly I wanted to smack a few people. The only reason I gave it a 4 is that some people in there needed to suffer longer, Joshua, her mother, Patti, Josie, Travis....everyone of them. THEY NEEDED TO SUFFER!!!

    This book was so filled with swearing and childish behavior it felt like was suck in a pre-teen hell hole. Now I am more interested in his brothers story than this one. They are both so full of themselves and childish (despite what they do in the bedroom here) that they are perfect for each other. The drama was OTT and the secondary characters are way more interesting For me this is a miss 1.5 stars but round up to 2 because it set the stage for the second book that sounds much more promising.

    Despite a good storyline and interesting characters, this book had three very serious problems: 1. I have a mouth like a sailor, dropping the f bomb at least 15 times a day. So, when I say this book has way, way, way too much cursing, I'm not being prudish... I'm saying there's too much fucking cursing, okay!?! It just really takes away from the story, the flow, the character's feelings, & basically everything enjoyable when every other sentence reads kinda like this... Fucking hell, this mo Despite a good storyline and interesting characters, this book had three very serious problems: 1. I have a mouth like a sailor, dropping the f bomb at least 15 times a day.

It just really takes away from the story, the flow, the character's feelings, & basically everything enjoyable when every other sentence reads kinda like this... Fucking hell, this motherfucking motherfucker is fucking batshit crazy & I'm not the fucking bitch to fucking deal with that motherfucking crazy shit cuz I'll beat his goddamn ass in the fucking ground for fucking playing these fucking fucked up games with my motherfucking ass. It's way over the top! Its unnecessary! It's as distracting as it is detracting! 2. My other problem with this story is that it's set in high school. The alpha male reads like a late twenties- early thirties character. He is way too alpha & way too worldly in the game of dominance and submission to be in high school. ITS un-f'ing believable of any 17-year-old character, regardless of how "smart" he is or isn't. And, the parents are all a-okay with sleepovers and getting hitched before they even get through school, really? Sure, it's a fantasy, but even fantasy needs to be at least lightly bathed in realism for it to be enjoyable. 3. Horrible grammar! Lots of editing mistakes that are nothing short of sloppy! Quotes are a jumbled mess. It wasn't all bad~ Ignoring the age of the characters, the male MC was actually pretty hot. I loved the give and take game between the two MC's. If they were aged believably, it would've been a 4 star character representation. I've read several books by this author and she always has excellent pacing with her stories. Her stories always move right along, never falling prey to boring lulls where you have to skip over fluff or suffer through long diatribes and monologues. Alternating POV was great. One of the best parts was the subtle humor that the author peppered in the story. {Note; these quotes also serve to illustrate the damn crazy amount of cursing} "...fuck what you heard, head is head, there really isn't bad head unless the bitch tries to bite your shit off..." "Let me ask you something before this shit goes any farther, are you certifiably insane or some shit I mean is there documentation somewhere that says you're a nut job?" "This motherfucker is crazy, who the fuck.. Did I fall down the fucking rabbit hole or some shit.." "Why don't you crack that shell and see motherfucker, you better wear a hazmat suit because a whole lotta shit just might explode all over you." "This crazy fuck had chopped him across the Adam's apple with his hand." Bottom line... There's a lot of bad to take with the good.

But they're co-dependent and she has her own issues, so even when she leaves him after the bondage scene she runs to the person who abuses her more: her mother. These kids talk like low class trailer trash even though they're supposed to be academically smart and from wealthy families of some sort. This kid claims that Carrie's his "mate" as if he's a caveman. It was utterly ridiculous. There was nothing redeeming for me with this one.

    Loved it! Fun new adult book with a young alpha male hero, who also doesn't hesitate to spank our leading lady when she needs it. This is the first book I've read where the hero, Josh, who is only 17 likes to punish the leading lady, Carissa, who is also 17, by spanking her. He is very controlling and possessive. I love that in my heroes! It was refreshing. I will definitely be reading more of Jordan Silver's books. Keep them coming!

    I'll be honest I didn't get past the first few pages of this one. I don't mind cursing in the books I read but this was completely ridiculous. It was like a kid discovering curse words and no parental vision around. They've got to do it as much as possible. Very juvenile.

    Jordan Silver is either an author that you love or you hate, if you like obsessive, possessive alpha men that will do what they want no matter what and a heroine that is most of the time feisty and not backward in saying how it is then she is perfect for you. Her books will probably never be considered safe or sweet or romantic in the normal sense of the word then give I would suggest that you give her books a wide birth. I happen to love her books, they are a great way to escape the world. Alwa Jordan Silver is either an author that you love or you hate, if you like obsessive, possessive alpha men that will do what they want no matter what and a heroine that is most of the time feisty and not backward in saying how it is then she is perfect for you. Her books will probably never be considered safe or sweet or romantic in the normal sense of the word then give I would suggest that you give her books a wide birth. I happen to love her books, they are a great way to escape the world. Always entertaining with a criminal element to them they keep me engrossed from start to finish. Joshua Steel is not your average teenager well advanced in his attitude to life and the human race. He and his siblings are loyal to each other to a fault, but the day that Carissa arrives is the day he meets his mate for life. He knows that she is the one for him but he has a few barriers to overcome in his quest to make her his. He hasn’t exactly been celibate for years and he knows that when he claims Carissa there are bound to be a few issues that arise but the hardest thing he has to overcome is Carissa herself she will fight him at every point, after a life of neglect and abuse from her mother can he get her to lower her defences and actually trust that he will always be there or will he give up when she needs him the most? Carissa has been ignored by her mother her entire life that is unless she needs her to help her hook a new man in her life, after years of disastrous relationships Carissa finds herself in Sea Crest with her once upon a time stepfather. Carissa has no trust in the people in her life as no one has ever stayed around for long enough. Being part of the Steel family makes her feel whole for the first time in her life but after pushing Joshua away too many times and rebelling once too often she finds herself alone once again and singled out. Can she repair the damage between her and Joshua or will he push her away to the point where she will never recover? It’s a tale of teenage angst and adult feelings that I found engrossing from the first page, in my opinion make your own mind up with this book as if id of read the reviews I wouldn’t have given it a chance, and Id of missed out on a very enjoyable engaging book.

I feel like this book (and others) are situated in HS/College for Jordan Silver because her plot stock in trade is the bad guy = jealous girl. She needs proximity of lots of "jealous" girls for the heroine to shine and for the hero to act crazy about. And to show that all bitches want the hero. Can't get that in a regular non-school setting...because how often do adults do show downs in school cafeterias?

It hurt my pride reading through her point of view in this book.

    3.5 stars It was ok. Quick read. YA, but with lots of adult content. Hated the foul language but it gets a little better at the halfway mark. Hero is super OTT jealous and controlling, which is normally fine by me, but in this case he was 17!!! So needless to say, there was a lot of eye rolling by me... if you like Fallen Crest High series, you will probably like this book (but be patient, the first half of the book will have you seriously considering DNFing this book).

The Steel family is super loyal-I will ignore everyone who doesn't side with my family- even if my family member is a complete jerk and completely wrong, crap. Basically, Fallen Crest High. I did enjoy reading the hero's OTT tendencies. The heroine was meh... overall, ok but probably will not be continuing with the series.

    Carissa and Josh. I started reading this one almost a year ago and got bored. Starting it again I couldn't really remember it, but it didn't take long to catch up. Like watching a north american soap opera. So predictable it feels vacuous and so OTT it is annoying. I probably would have enjoyed it more if it had been half as long or if it had been even a wee bit more believable. Josh, a 17 year old wealthy genius womanizer falls hard and fast for 17 year old hard ass, Carissa. He pushes her away Carissa and Josh. I started reading this one almost a year ago and got bored.

Then there's the evil chick, another 17 year old willing to stoop to anything to achieve her goals... whatever those are. There's also a crazed murderous rapist on the loose too. There's the evil mom and the clueless dad. Have I missed anything? I don't know why I didn't enjoy this one. It has all the author's usual style. I guess I just got bored.

    Oh I loved this book. Reminded me soo much of Twilight just R rated and without the supernatural. I mean c'mon, he's and "OLD SOUL" (and has a fucking hot dominant personality), her dad's a cop, his dad is a doctor, she drives a shitty truck, he drives awesome new cars and his family have more money that could spend in a lifetime. That she becomes part of the family because he's told his family it's his soul mate. They family remain a "pack". All this similarities make me smile and love this book Oh I loved this book.
