ignored and makes them everyday heroes She introduced our main characters Josh and Star during her last Reed book Both would seem to have nothing in common but mutual friends and co workers through the Reed family but through this tale we learn they havein common than what meets the eye The surprise will be both are so damaged by life and should be cynical and harsh, actually having this direct almost innocence in the way they end up being together with each other.You have Star lead singer of the group Fallen from Zero She and her sister lost their parents early and were shuffled around the foster system until they landed with a wonderful couple who now are the only parents they can see themselves with Star, as the oldest, made sure to protect her younger sister from all of the unseemly things which were inflicted on her before they found Emilio and Marta She developed a need to be perfect and make sure everything was just so As she became a woman she still worked to make all think she was that normal, perfect person even though she knew deep down she wasn t even close or never would be.With Josh, we had a new lost soul the Reeds gave a chance With a prison record and gang tats, he had major hurdles to overcomeand with his wheelchair and lost use of his legs, the looks of fear and mistrust were common to him The pain he wore like a hair shirt, a constant reminder of the penance he needed to do The Reeds gave him a chance, though and he had proven himself to be loyal and caring He showed his selflessness during a family crisis and now he was part of the clan.These two come together on the night when another Reed will be born All were gathered and celebrating an event for Fallen From Zero when Star decided to dance on the baby grand piano Refusing to come down, Josh and her sisters maneuver her off and somehow she ends up in his lap At that time, chaos happens with water breaking and Reeds going to the Hospital Offering to get Star sober and then join them for the baby s birthJosh ends up taking her to his place He has her close to himtaking in her scent, feeling a warm body draped across his and holding his neck something which has not happened in yearsHe sees , though he sees the little lost girl the one always holding it so tightly together for fear of falling apart and it touches his heart They get to his place and he puts her in his bed to sleep it off Star reaches out and asks for him to just hold herand he does She awakens and is stunnedher clothes are on minus her strappy shoes She is a little confusedhe didn t make a move and she is not used to people treating her kindly The two of them start talking and Josh, almost blunt, ask what set her off It showed he was watching her before this that he really saw her, the scared girl child, and she is touched Circumstances happen to cause Star to fight with her sisters She does not want to go home and is ready to go to a hotel Josh surprises himself when the words come from his mouth, you could stay with me They both look at each other, a nod passesyes, she will This book has two people carrying so much emotional weight, it has caused them to livein their own heads than with others Josh has learned from his life in the chair how people can disregard and dismiss He has experienced much Star, as a famous singer, has had people treat her as a product and never see her as just a person Both have arrested development in the romance department so communicating about these things tends to be direct from Josh or confused sometimes with Star and both have this innocence I mentioned earlier It could be off putting at first because understanding the warmth which lies beneath is key.Faulkner handles those with disabilities perfectly She presents the situation, gives the readers the correct mindset and lets the characters fly She has done this repeatedly throughout her series and this was no different Her skilled writing realistically approached sex with someone with lower body trauma Josh didn t know what was up with his equipment until it was awakened by Star How all of it played out was perfect.I appreciated both of these characters They had lived through so much and needed to love themselves, let things go so they could move forward This story did this for them and we were able to see them grow and accept.The best, though, was seeing all the Reeds in their glory These people warm the heart they tease and play and love like warriors I am sure there aretales with the Fallen from Zero women and younger generations of Reeds are growingso eventually, they too will be in the picture All I know, is I will be looking for Trigger warning sexual child abuse in past ForReviews, Free E books and Giveaways

    Sadly, I didn t love it as much as previous books I had hard time with connecting to the main couple they just didn t do it for me Frankly, there was no chemistry between them I still enjoyed my fix of The Reeds of course sigh.

US years ago, Josh made a decision that irrevocably changed the course of his life and that of three others He has marks both on the outside and in He s lived alone and with nothing, but now he s been given a chance to put his life back on track Can his road include love and forgiveness Star has the picture perfect image of beauty, fame and wealth But beneath all the flawless creases hides a woman whose ill treated childhood rules her adult life not letting anyone near Can this marked man get past her walls Can she be what he needs Will she be good enough Just because the Reed brothers are all happily married and procreating like love struck rabbits doesn t mean we can t havestrong, loveable men in our eReaders And Tammy Falkner is just the author who can give us beautiful stories that include life lessons surrounded by a bunch of teasing characters with steadfast love for one another I like people who don t see the chair I think it s okay to see our differences And even appreciate them But not to judge people based on them The anticipation I felt for this story was incredible, not just because Josh is not a Reed, but because I was intrigued by what the Reeds saw in him in the previous books that made them include him in their close knit family I could say I didn t know what to expect but that would be a lie because anyone who is acquainted with Tammy s writing knows they would get a sexy guy who understands how to love his woman I knew I would get an escape into a lovey dovey story with very family centered values I knew I would get a wonderful story madebeautiful by the strong emotional moments the characters faceIt s almost like she knows I m about to break I feel like with one word, I might crack into a million tiny pieces Like one word will shatter meWith Zip, Zero, Zilch book 6 in the series bridging the Reed brothers with the Fallen From Zero band, we now get to see each of the Zero girls have their own happy ending Good Girl Gone focuses on Star and Josh s story which is filled with adorable, charming, delightful moments I got you a tux and shoes and I even bought you new underwear with rhinestones that cost a lot of money, just so your junk would be bejeweled and spectacular as well as achy heartbreaking ones.His lips hover over mine, almost touching, but not He takes my hand and lays it over his heart I hurt, he says, his voice cracking Make it stop Please He closes his eyes tightly, like he s praying Please, Star Please make it go away Since his accident, Josh hasn t been interested in women until Star literally lands on his lap and makes him and all his guy parts pay attention Star has never met a man she liked oraccurately, she s never met a man she wanted to get close to Even though there s fun flirting and undeniable attraction between them, there aredifficult hindrances than Josh s wheelchair Carried me He pats his legs In my lap You were admiring my package He grins I hope you re talking about a gift Could be, if you play your cards right They both have reasons to be closed off and be on guard Josh has a difficult time believing this beautiful woman can see past his disability, much less his past But an appearance from Star s youth has given them the opportunity to spend time together and get to know each other I loved Josh He s so incredibly tough on the outside but so vulnerable on the inside It was so sweet and sexy how he was with this strong yet breakable woman He s so honest about how he feels about her while Star is so incredibly supportive, helping him face and accept his past Because Star has a sad past of her own She s never been intimate with a man of her own free will She even has an agreement with a gay friend to pose as her fake boyfriend so she can keep up appearances and avoid uncomfortable questions But Josh s tenderness and willingness to take care of her, to go at her own pace has made her feel safe in the most gorgeous ways Are you going to touch me I ask God, I hope he s going to touch me Unless you tell me you don t want me to, yes He says it so directly So succinctly You tell me to stop and I will That s all you have to do Tell me to stop I ll listen I promise They were perfect for one another Both having serious issues to work through, but the way they were open and communicated with each other was absolutely wonderful I even enjoyed the fast pace they took once they were on track It s never too early when true love is involved And oh boy, the entire Reed clan is back And even Daniel from Finally Finding Fatih, plays an important role in this book as Josh s physical therapist I got a mobility catalog the other day with some special sex chairs and cushions and stuff You want me to bring it tomorrow Sex chairs I loved the support the Reed brothers and Zero girls give to each other It s beautiful in its unconditional nature and it s reinforced in every book making the entire series richer It makes you want to have that in your own family And did I mention the incredibly funny moments they share There s something special in every page Stop talking about my vagina in front of people He grins But it s, like, magical She growls at him If you ever want to touch my magical vagina again, you ll stop talking about it Pete Reagan My phone goes off in my pocket.Star Were you talking about my vagina I grin and swipe a hand across my mouth.Me Not yet, but I m willing You should totally show it to me so I have some frame of reference Josh Star sextingEven though we still have several of the Zero girl s books to looks forward to, I can already imagine a second generation of Reed brothers, sisters and cousins to look forward to We ve already been teased with the cover and tittle for the next book, but not who it s about I can t waitUS the first chapter I was given an ARC of this book courtesy of the author The excerpts are from that copy More reviews Stalk us on FaceBook As well as Twitter

    i had been looking forward to this book since it was teased i thought Josh as a character had so much potential for his own book and the emotional element that the author had layed out was all there ready to be expanded upon considering all he has been through and the guilt he carries, he was a character i knew i wanted to readabout and see find his happy ever after.i did enjoy this book, it was good but not great it s only 150 pages long, some serials are longer than that and because o i had been looking forward to this book since it was teased i thought Josh as a character had so much potential for his own book and the emotional element that the author had layed out was all there ready to be expanded upon considering all he has been through and the guilt he carries, he was a character i knew i wanted to readabout and see find his happy ever after.i did enjoy this book, it was good but not great it s only 150 pages long, some serials are longer than that and because of this, it feels quite rushed at times certain moments could have been built upon in order to bebelievable, things were happening quick, secrets were shared easily then brushed aside and because of this a lot of the moments that were ment to come across emotional fell flat for me as a reader and almost seemed a little superficial no, not all the time but enough that it did kind of bug me.like other books in the series, the relationship moves fast and you know exactly how the book will end and i really don t have a problem with that because this author is good with drawing her readers in and i guess at the end of the day these really are feel good books they re sweet and syrupy and i do eat them up but this time i expectedi just wantedfrom this one as the series has gone along it s lost a little of the heart it started out with, well that s how i feel..i ll read the next book because hopefully that has a little bitemotional depth and it may not come across as such race to the HEA finish line i think i said this exact thing in the previous books review hmm but if it is like this one and book 6, i think i may be done i don t care enough for the Fallen From Zero girls even for fluff reading and we already know all the Reeds are happy.this book was still an enjoyable addition to the series and but it s not the best

    I can t help but feel you really must read the whole series to get all the connections and backstory in each book It lost me a little because i hadn t.I loved the characters, the interesting relationship they formed, the barriers they broke through together It moved me when the hero s past caught up with him I can t help but feel the whole thing needed to be longer,depth,inner monologuelook into the characters thought process to back up their actions and conversations.
