Fear You is the second book in the Broken Love Series by Author B.B. Reid and the conclusion to Keiran and Lake's frivolous love affair. Book two gives us more understanding of Kerian's thinking and why he is the way he is. I love that we get dual POV...I love being in Keiran's head.  We get more regarding his past, his past with Lily, and why he treated Lake the way he did. 

Fear You picks up pretty much where book one left off. We follow Keiran and Lake through their final year of high school, where Lake is still trying to figure out Keiran and trying to fight her feelings for him. Keiran is torn between harassing Lake and protecting her. His obsession and addiction to her outweighs his need to stay away.  He craves the domination over her because of his possessiveness toward her.

"I was as much her sexual prisoner as she was mine. Those would be the times I took her the hardest and unleashed my cruelty on her."

"When Keiran came back into my life he came with a vengeance."

Lake finally found courage and has a backbone in Fear You.  She is no longer afraid of her tormentor. She wants answers and she's not afraid to demand them.  She may not get all  the answers, but that doesn't mean she stops demanding them.  She stands up for herself and fights back...and that I absolutely loved.

There was a particular time in Fear You that I wanted to smack Lake, though.  I was so mad at her.  I think because we did have Keiran's POV, and with that, giving me a better understanding of his feelings and what his intentions were, I wanted to strangle her. I mean, I wanted to ring her neck...I was so frustrated.  But in her defense, she was doing the right thing for what was happening around her.  I know I'm probably confusing you, but the way it "looked" to her, she was in the right doing what she did.  But, she was also out for revenge.

"You don't want to hear the truth. You want the fairytale. I want to ruin you."

Getting to know the man behind the mask of Keiran Masters, made me love him even more.  I felt so guilty wanting more of Keiran.  His actions were horrific at times and I was fighting within myself to keep reading. It felt so wrong but it felt so right too.  I was struggling and conflicted with my emotions.  I wanted to whip his ass and tell him to get over himself but then I wanted to hug his neck and kiss his face off.  It was a roller coaster ride with my emotions.  Up and down...up and down.

I loved the banter between Keiran and Lake.  It made me crave more.  My stomach was in knots and I was nervous most of the time, but that's what I crave and love the most about books. Bring on the favorite kind of reads.  

This series has a story to tell and it's not's not drug's perfection.  But, I must say, the first part of this book was a teeny tad slow for me, but I think that was just me. I was on such a high from book one that I was so ready... adrenaline was pumping and my heart was beating a mile a minute...

Book one will leave you with many questions but thank goodness that book two is out. Your questions will be answered in book two. ;)

It's really hard for me to write a review for Fear You and Fear Me without giving away spoilers and ruining this series for you.  All I can say, is read both of these books.  If you love dark reads an angst, then I definitely recommend reading both. This series is one that you will not forget. It's one of those that will linger in your mind from now on.  I know it will for me anyway.

I promise that once you start reading, you will not want to put it down.  I have the kindle app on my cell, so any chance I got, I was glued to my phone. That's how B.B. Reid held me prisoner for a couple of days.  I wanted to be glued to my kindle. When I wasn't at home reading, I was on my cell reading every chance I got.  

B.B. Reid is definitely on my radar now. I'm looking forward to future reads from this author. I'm super excited for the next book in this series... Fear Us, which will take us on a journey with Keenan and Sheldon, and hopefully the rest of the cast. I.CAN.NOT.WAIT!!! This series has fantastic supporting characters.  I fell in love with Keenan and Sheldon. I'm super excited to read their story!!!

This book came highly recommended to me.  When I was told that it was a lot like Bully by Penelope Douglas but darker...SOLD!!!  B.B. Reid...Where have you been hiding?

Lake Monroe is getting ready to start her senior year of high school and ready to get on with her life...but Keiran Masters, her tormentor for 10 years, is back.  And he's back for blood, sweat and tears. 

"I don't believe in fairy tales and Prince Charming.

I believe in fear.

He taught me how to be afraid."

Keiran Masters is a troubled, dark soul, who has nothing but Lake Monroe and revenge on his mind and he won't let anything or anyone get in his way. He blames her for the year he spent in Juvi thinking she is the one that set him up. He also blames her for circumstances that occurred long ago that she absolutely had no control over. He hates her and he never stops letting her know it. But his actions and words are contradicting, because he wants to own her and only he can have her. And God Bless the soul of anyone who tries to get in his way or tries to get close to Lake.

"I've watched you, and I've studied you. I've memorized you. I know what makes you hurt...I know what makes you sad...I know what makes you cry. And all your deepest fears, I will know. I'll take your so-called strengths, and I'll make them your weaknesses."

What I love about Lake is that she is strong.  It may not appear that way but she is. She takes everything that Keiran dishes out. She doesn't like it but she takes it. What she hates the most is that her body betrays her when her mind is telling her to run far far away.

I really don't want to give too much away so I'm not going to go much into the storyline.  But this book really did blow me away.  I'm so glad Cami suggested I read it...She never steers me wrong ;)

The supporting characters in this book are kick ass.  I loved  Quentin, Dash, Willow, Sheldon and Keenan.  Sheldon is one of my favs...she is a true friend through and through. The stuff that comes out of her mouth is epic.  She doesn't care what she says or who she says it to.  Everyone needs a SHELDON as a friend ;)

I truly was blown away by this book.  The biggest thing for me is that it was such a dark read. At first, I was so torn regarding reading FEAR ME.  I felt guilty for being so engrossed with this dark story.  It felt so wrong.  I was questioning my morals to be honest.  How can I be so engrossed in a book that is so dark? But I was so intrigued with Keiran and Lake...I had to know where their story was going. It was a mystery puzzle that I just had to solve. I kept rooting for them.  I wanted them to fall in love...I wanted Lake to tell Keiran the truth dang it!!! I didn't want to put it down. It was all I could think about.  I didn't even want to go to work the next day after I started reading it...I had to know!!! Then UGH......Cliffhanger...but thank goodness book 2 is already out ;)

This is a book I would definitely recommend.  It's so dark and mysterious.  If you can make it through the first half of the book, you'll get some answers in the last half. So so worth it.

KIM'S REVIEW~BREAKING NOAH by Ashley Suzanne and Missy Johnson

Anyone who loves teacher/student romance books, this one is for you.  Anyone who knows me, you know I'm all over these books. When I was offered and ARC for BREAKING NOAH, you can bet your sweet cheeks that I jumped at the chance.

Ashley Suzanne and Missy Johnson did a great job co-writing this book.  I could not tell the difference in their writing style...It flowed effortlessly.  

"What happens when you start falling for your worst enemy?"

Zara had her life pretty much figured out until the day her cousin died.  Everything changed for her from that day on.  Revenge is what she had in mind and nothing or no one was going to stop her.

In order for Zara's plan to work, she has to transfer to the college of the professor that she blames for her cousin's death, enroll in his class, and start her process of revenge.  Zara is determined to make him pay.  She is determined to "Break Noah."

"First I’ll seduce him. Then I’ll ruin him."

What Zara was not prepared for was the twist in her plan once her recorded evidence falls in the wrong person's hands. This course of action causes a downward spiral in her plan for revenge.  She also wasn't prepared for her heart to overtake her head.  Was she falling for the man that she set out to destroy?

Will Zara follow her heart or will she listen to her conscience???  

This story has many twists and turns...some I predicted and some that caught me off guard...& that I loved...but I needed more!

I must honestly say that I did not like Zara.  I didn't feel a connection with her...but NOAH...I connected 100%.  I connected with him right from the start. I just wanted to yell at Zara and shake some sense into times I just wanted to rip her hair out!!! Ugh!!

I definitely recommend this book...I just needed more.  I love Ashley Suzanne and I love her passion for writing.  You will not be disappointed in this book. Read it now!!!

If you're looking for a story of revenge, betrayal, heartbreak, and then eventually love, then this is the story for you!!!

I give Breaking Noah 4 Crazie Stars!!! ~Kim
