After everything blew up on Christmas, Liz walked away from me, and I let her She said she needed space and a chance to pursue her dreams But we both knew she was running from the mess she made Now the political campaign she used as an excuse to leave is bringing us back together and I m proving to her what she really needs not just the hot nights, greedy hands, and undeniable physical chemistry What she really needs is something real What she really needs is me

    Sam and Liz rocked my world I felt so many emotions in this series Love, lust, lies, betrayal, anger You name it, I felt it.Sam was in a bad spot with his fathers governor campaign and the possibility of having a child that he has never met I tried so hard to hate him but I just couldn t do it He tried to do the right thing for everyone but it was out of control and the lies just kept getting worse.Liz was was immature in the first book but by the second book I really liked her She was hor Sam and Liz rocked my world I felt so many emotions in this series Love, lust, lies, betrayal, anger You name it, I felt it.Sam was in a bad spot with his fathers governor campaign and the possibility of having a child that he has never met I tried so hard to hate him but I just couldn t do it He tried to do the right thing for everyone but it was out of control and the lies just kept getting worse.Liz was was immature in the first book but by the second book I really liked her She was horny and only Sam could take care of her needs And boy did he take care of her I felt so bad for her though She loved Sam but dang that man was enough to make anyone crazy My emotions were all over the place with this one and I loved it Definitely worth the anxiety and lack of sleep

    The conclusion to Liz and Sam s story was ok I feel like the ending was rushed but overall I enjoyed seeing these two falter and get it together in the end There was a bit of angst and a lot of manipulation by a crazy bitch.I honestly dont know how anyone didnt see the crazy that was Sabrina I mean she was a damned looney I kind of wished George s character gotplay because he seemed like the hottie guy next door But Liz never stopped pining for Sam Sam was pretty good in the book He The conclusion to Liz and Sam s story was ok I feel like the ending was rushed but overall I enjoyed seeing these two falter and get it together in the end There was a bit of angst and a lot of manipulation by a crazy bitch.I honestly dont know how anyone didnt see the crazy that was Sabrina I mean she was a damned looney I kind of wished George s character gotplay because he seemed like the hottie guy next door But Liz never stopped pining for Sam Sam was pretty good in the book He s kinda an idiot but he finally pulled up his big boy pants to claim his girl The ending was pretty quick and not that exciting but whatevs

    It wasn t exactly what I expected This book was pretty hard for me to rate because I liked the story idea and also Lexi Ryan s writing style, but I was disappointed with the hero and heroine There was no character development.A weak hero a weak heroine Double messesHere is Sam and Liz s tortured love and relationship.Sam He loved her but he let her go without giving her a chance to explain He wanted her but he couldn t forgive her.He couldn t have her but he chased after her.He used he It wasn t exactly what I expected This book was pretty hard for me to rate because I liked the story idea and also Lexi Ryan s writing style, but I was disappointed with the hero and heroine There was no character development.A weak hero a weak heroine Double messesHere is Sam and Liz s tortured love and relationship.Sam He loved her but he let her go without giving her a chance to explain He wanted her but he couldn t forgive her.He couldn t have her but he chased after her.He used her but he didn t want to hurt her.WHAT Liz She loved him but she left him without trying to explain the truth She wanted him but she didn t fight to win him back.She couldn t have him but she never tried to move on.She let him use her and she got hurt again and again.WHAT Why didn t you two just talk If only they could trust each other, they would have handled things differently rather than let the bad guy destroy their lives I felt quite frustrated with this kind of love.By the way, a twist ending was good enough for me to give this book 3 stars

    4.5 stars I love the way Lexi Ryan tells a story This was the perfect mix of heartbreak, scandal and HOTNESS It seems like the timing is never right for Sam and Liz There s always something or someone trying to come between them After the fallout in Something Reckless, Liz fled New Hope Leaving behind Sam and all her friends and family She s working on the governor s presidential campaign and just existing Trying to forget about Sam Even with a sexy neighbor next door, it s pointless Sh 4.5 stars I love the way Lexi Ryan tells a story This was the perfect mix of heartbreak, scandal and HOTNESS It seems like the timing is never right for Sam and Liz There s always something or someone trying to come between them After the fallout in Something Reckless, Liz fled New Hope Leaving behind Sam and all her friends and family She s working on the governor s presidential campaign and just existing Trying to forget about Sam Even with a sexy neighbor next door, it s pointless She s been in love with Sam foreverYou ve always been my girlSam s life is pretty much in shambles Liz is gone and politics are dictating his life Just when he wakes up and realizes he wants something real with Liz, a past transgression comes back to haunt him It s a tangled web of blackmail, lies and stolen moments It s heartbreaking to see all the obstacles they have to overcome, but it s so worth it in the endI want to take care of you I want to put babies in your belly I want us to grow old holding each other s handOne of the best things about Lexi Ryan s books is her ability to build up the anticipation Throughout both of Liz and Sam s books, I was sitting on the edge of my seat, flying through the pages, dying to know if things would finally come together for them With their history and the people around them interfering, its an emotional roller coaster They share some really sweet moments and have insane chemistry, which makes for some seriously HOT scenes.I m hoping that we get to seeof Sam and Liz in Max s books Did I mention how excited I am for his series I love that each spin off series sort of overlaps and includes characters that I have fallen for in the past I can t wait to see what she has in store for Max.4.5 5 FangsMrs Leif s Two Fangs About ItARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review

    3.5 starsI felt like this author focused so much on all this additional drama and didnt focus on the romance part I felt like there was no need to keep going back and forth 1 year before, etc I didnt love Liz for some reason Sam was just okay but to me there wasnt really a love connection I skimmed a few parts because I just felt like it was just one thing after another, obstacle after obstacle I despised almost everyone in his family but I guess this book just didnt do it for me I feel li 3.5 starsI felt like this author focused so much on all this additional drama and didnt focus on the romance part I felt like there was no need to keep going back and forth 1 year before, etc I didnt love Liz for some reason Sam was just okay but to me there wasnt really a love connection I skimmed a few parts because I just felt like it was just one thing after another, obstacle after obstacle I despised almost everyone in his family but I guess this book just didnt do it for me I feel like we needed probably less chapters on how the main characters were so miserable andchapters on how everything got better and how they helped themselves overcome all of their obstacles Eventhough this book didnt do it for me, I will gladly wait for the next story
