"It Hurts Me To Love You 3" by Ms. T. Nicole

My Synopsis

Beautifully written! I enjoyed this whole series and I would definitely suggest if you haven't read the first two series please do so. It will bring you up to what has gone on earlier in this story. The author really did a wonderful job at bringing this story to a close. Not wanting to spoil anything but just say all questions and answers were given and I loved how it seemed that there was even some forgiveness after all was said and done. The characters were simply off the chain....being well developed, portrayed and so believable giving us a well developed story that will keep your attention to the very end. All that is left to say to the author... you write some well written stories that always leave your readers wanting more!

My Thoughts...

 

What a read that will present many secrets that did come out presenting problems especially for Yam Snake and DJ.  Now, how will this cause some deep problems for poor Paisley?  Will DJ be able pull back since Paisley has his heart?  Be ready for plenty of action that will present many twist and turns that will keep you turning the pages to see what will happen next. Since there is more to come of this story we will have to catch part 3 to get the rest of the story.

This is definitely one of those reads that you will not want to put down until the end.  The story will be filled with so many lies that you will simply have to keep up with all of its twist and turns. I found all of the characters simply off the chart bringing so much to this story that will have you shaking your head and saying wow...I didn't see that one coming.  At the end I was left wondering just who the truthful person was in this read.  There was so much damage that had been done would there be a any room for a healing?  I will only say this author has done it again and that is give the readers another good read.

My Thoughts....

Wow, what a wild ride as this author's story keeps your attention as you are turning the pages to see what was coming at you next. I enjoyed how the second book continues on from where the first story left off giving the reader one heck of a good read. This was definitely one of those story that was full of action and the reader will definitely know who is the boss as well as the queen [Brian & Celine]. I would suggest that the reader read the first book before reading this second one for a better understand of just what had happened earlier in the story. All in all this was a good fast read.

My Thoughts...
 
There was quite a bit of dramatic in this second read of DUI that will keep the reader turning the pages to see what will be happening next in this entertaining read.  When the saying karma will come...well it certainly did for several particular characters. All of the characters were quite a interesting bunch ...from Quillion, Marlene, Tyme, Jamie, Myka, Lydia, Steve, Demeko, Dina, to Gia to name a few that you keep your interest as you are kept turning the pages.  I liked how this author was able to give the reader a intriguing story that one could see as even being believable especially in all that was happening to Quillion and Marlene. All I can say is that bipolarism is a very serious illness if it's not handle correctly and definitely not to be played with.  Wow, after all is said and done all that is left to say is this was one emotional dramatic  read that can give the reader much thought long after the read.  I did enjoy that twist at the end in who had done what to whom. To really understand it all one will have to pick up this good read to see how well this author presents it all to the reader.  It was really good to see the HEA that came forth.
