Published: 9.27.2013
Series: Fearsome #1
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance


Jessica Channing’s big city life should be more exciting than sixty-hour work weeks and popcorn nights with her girlfriends, but it’s not. She has worked hard fulfilling her role as a child prodigy and graduating college years before her peers. She’s the good girl, the brilliant girl.

Unfortunately, she’s also the dateless young woman.

That all changes with one phone call. Jess’s rigid, predictable life upends when she must visit a small, obscure town to deal with a relative’s death. This isn’t just any little speck of a town, though. Long lost memories come crashing down on Jess’s world when two men, the Blackard brothers, seem to lure her in.

Dylan is cover model handsome, and pursues Jess the minute she comes to town. Then there is tall, dark and gorgeous Carson, who hides his own secrets behind his hardened reserve.

For someone who has been governed by her own obsessive behaviors and fears, Jess lets her guard down and jumps at the opportunity to have an affair with a man she actually finds attractive for a change.

There’s just one problem. Jess discovers that she can’t have a simple romantic fling because true passion does indeed come with some very big strings attached to it. She will have to own up to her own truths about love and face the two extraordinary men; both troubled in their own ways and both determined to have her.

**This novel contains graphic sexual content and strong language. It is intended for mature readers. (Thanks to GoodReads.com for the summary)

My Thoughts –

Fearsome is a whirlwind of a love triangle that introduces you to two hot brothers and a sassy heroine. I liked this story – didn’t love it, but liked it a lot. Just enough to continue on to the next book. It did take me a while to read, over a week in fact, which means it didn’t grab my interest enough.

To me, Jessica seemed na├»ve and selfish. Sure, she’s smart, graduated early and has a great job – but she’s really only thinking of herself and hooks up with both brothers. She is too hung up on her parents and being like them. She’s too full of self-doubt and it almost costs her both brothers.

Dylan and Carson are two brothers I’d like to meet. I mean, seriously…seriously. Dylan goes for what/who he wants at first glance. Carson is the opposite and lets Dylan take priority over himself. I love these guys, both are wicked awesome.

I feel the book could have been shorter. Some scenarios could have been omitted to move the story along quicker. I look forward to seeing what the future has in store for this group in the next book.
