Tortured Past by Nicole De La Cruz

(Pub Series, #2)
Nicole De La Cruz 

Amy Bennett doesn't have a plan. She loves living her life the way she wants. Alcohol, cigarettes, and sleeping with random men are what she is notorious for - That is, until she and Clive Harrington have a one night stand after her best friends wedding. However, the night didn't stop there...
They quickly find themselves spending more time together - Sharing pieces of themselves they've never shared before.
As they both begin to face their own demons, will their past keep them from having a future? Or is their love strong enough to get through it together?

I loved this book. For her 2nd book I have to say she is hitting it out of the park. I loved how these two characters began. The banter between them. The way their feelings grown into something more than they ever expected is amazing. I really love the way you feel like you can truly relate to all of her character's in your everyday life. I find sometimes in books you run across some that you just cant ever see happening in real life. But not with this one. This one you know happens In everyday life.
I cant wait for more to come from Nicole. I cant wait to see her grow and become one of the best authors out there.

Needing a taste of nicotine, I go to reach for my cigarettes only to come up empty. I realize that I must have left them at whats his names apartment. I check my purse again; maybe I stashed away one for just in case.
“Need a cigarette?”
I jump at the sound and look up to see Clive leaning against the wall in the parking lot. Hes wearing his normal black tight jeans, leather jacket, and his grey beanie he seems to never take off. He has all of his facial piercings in today, making it easier to see that it’s not Kyle. Even though I would never confuse the two: Clive’s eyes seem almost older, like he’s already lived a long hard life. I find it weird when your best friend’s husband has a twin brother, but it’s even weirder when you’re attracted to that brother.
“Thanks,” I reach out to grab the cigarette from his hand. I place it between my teeth, about to take his lighter, but he takes a step toward me. He’s so close that I can feel his body heat through my very thin, short dress. I really need him to step back before I make another mistake.
“Amy, you need to suck.” I look up at his face, which is only inches from mine. His blue eyes are almost clear and his pierced eyebrow has me mesmerized. I realize I have stopped breathing. I don’t even know how long we have been standing here. I look down at his hands, which are holding up a lighter in front of my cigarette. Shit. I inhale, letting the smoke fill my lungs and instantly feeling my stress go away. I don’t like the way I act when Clive is around. Even when I first met him (over a year ago) he had this strange effect on me. Like my body was drawn to him, but I knew it was wrong.
“Walk of shame?” I see him look me up and down, his eyes hovering on my ass. I feel my whole body get warm and start to tingle. What the fuck is wrong with me? I make men nervous, not the other way around.
“Nah, I like wearing skimpy clothes and stilettos when its 40 degrees outside.” I roll my eyes, acting like he has no effect on me whatsoever.
“I can think of other things you like to do.”
I feel my whole face heat up. I can’t believe he really just said that. “Fuck off. Too bad you’ll never find out again.” 
He lets out a chuckle as he leans against the building again. “Can you ever be nice?” He asks.

(The Pub Series #1)

After a night of fun and drinking, Scarlett Collins' past comes rushing back into her life. Instead of facing it, she runs away like she always does, this time straight into a broom closet. Not sure how she is going to get out of this one, the gorgeous British bartender rescues her from the locked room. Little does she know her life might have changed in ways she would have never dreamed.

That is until he lets her go without a number or a way of ever finding her again. When a second chance is put in front of Kyle, he knows he won’t let her get away that easy again.

Both have a past they wish they could change, but now they can have a possible future together. As long as hidden secrets don’t keep them apart...

This book is one of my favorites yet to date by this author.
The tragic loss of his wife and becoming a single dad all within a short period of time is something that not to many people can handle. But the way that Dauphin captures these things with the emotions is something that is what I think one of the hardest things to do. But she has done this. She not only brought out the emotions through out this book but she also was able to make it lighthearted at points to. Through out this story you go on a roller coaster of emotions that range from Sad to anger to happy and back to heartbreak. The fight that these two went through to be able to love one another is just simply beautiful. This is a very heartbreaking devastating beautiful stories that captures your heart and love all within these beautiful written pages.

Adored. Cherished. Worshiped.

Bryce Randolph accomplished the impossible when he stormed back into my life. He repaired my shattered heart and promised to love me

forever. My dreams now include a future with the man I’ve loved since I was twelve years old. He owns my soul, and a life without each other is not an option.
Sometimes, though, even the strongest bonds are tested.
How much am I willing to give up for the love of my life?
Ambition. Passion. Commitment.
As we chase our dreams, distance separates us, threatening to shake our
foundation. Jealousy and insecurities unravel my confidence, but Bryce’s
devotion never falters. When we’re faced with tough choices regarding our life together, I’m forced to rely on his unwavering strength.
Can we both have it all?
Then the unthinkable happens. Now, it’s my turn to fight for our happily
ever after. Are we falling apart after finding our way, or are we…

I didn't think that it was possible for Ahren to top her other books for me. But lord was I wrong.
This book is one of the most emotional books that she has wrote as of yet. It is raw and gritty and a roller coaster of emotions that you don't expect. There were twist and turns that I didn't see coming from a mile away. I love these two from book 1 and couldn't wait to get my hands on this book.
The things that this young couple go through is something that not everyone would be able to withstand but their LOVE and TRUST come through it stronger than ever. They become a couple that will withstand the time. I didn't want this book to end. I'm Hopping that there will be one more book coming from ALL of these characters including the secondary one's. Defiantly one of my favorite reads from this author to date.
