Product Description

Product Description

Aside from her dad, who passed away when she was six, Cassidy Jameson has only ever trusted one man: her best friend, Tyler. So of course she follows him to Texas when he leaves for college. She just didn't expect to be so drawn to their new roommate, Gage, a gorgeous guy with a husky Southern drawl. The only problem? He's Tyler's cousin.

Gage Carson was excited to share an apartment off campus with his cousin. He didn't mind that Tyler was bringing the mysterious friend he'd heard about since they were kids . . . until the most beautiful girl he's ever seen jumps out of his cousin's Jeep. There's something about Cassi that makes Gage want to give her everything. Too bad Tyler has warned him that she's strictly off-limits.

Despite everything keeping them apart, Cassi and Gage dance dangerously close to the touch they've both been craving. But when disaster sends her running into Tyler's arms, Cassi will have to decide whether to face the demons of herpast . . . or to burn her chance at a future with Gage.

About the Author

Molly McAdams grew up in California but now lives in the oh-so-amazing state of Texas with her husband and furry daughter. Her hobbies include hiking, snowboarding, traveling and long walks on the beach...which roughly translates to being a homebody with her hubby and dishing out movie quotes. When she's not at work, she can be found hiding out in her bedroom surrounded by her laptop, cell, Kindle and fighting over the TV remote. She has a weakness for crude-humored movies, fried pickles and loves curling up in a fluffy comforter during a thunderstorm...or under one in a bathtub if there are tornados. That way she can pretend they aren't really happening.

3.0 out of 5 stars This is one messed up story. 29 Jan 2013
By Sarah
Format:Kindle Edition
(Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to HarperCollins Publishers, and edelweiss.)
17-year-old Cassidy has had a difficult upbringing. Since her dad died when she was six, she's suffered constant physical abuse at the hands of her mother and step-father.

Her best friend Tyler who lives only 2 doors away has been there for her through it all, always there to clean up her cuts and bruises, and to help her hide her bruises from the authorities.

Now, Tyler is off to college, and he's taking Cassidy with him. Lodging with his cousin Gage, Tyler tries to make his relationship with Cassidy more than it is, but she doesn't feel that way about him, she is in love with Gage. Gage feels the same way about Cassie, but Tyler will do anything to keep Cassie `his'.
Can Cassie ever have a relationship with anyone else with Tyler around? What will Tyler do when he finds out that Gage returns Cassie's feelings? And how will this messed-up trio work out?

Where to start with this book? This book was just messed up. I mean seriously - messed up. This is one of those books that you want to read with your hands over your eyes. It's like a bad horror movie, you want to look away, but at the same time you know you can't.

Firstly, Tyler is just an icky son-of-a-b*tch. He lies, all the time, to Cassidy, to Gage, and probably even to himself. He constantly sticks his ore in where it's not needed, and he even tries to force Cassie to have sex with him, and still she loves him and sees him as her best friend.
The things he comes out with are just disgusting, and time and time again I wanted to just kick him where it hurts, and tell him off for being so awful.

BOOK REVIEW - From Ashes - Molly McAdams.

Molly McAdams strikes again!
The Queen of the angst-ridden love triangle YA is back, and on top form!

I think it's safe to say that I love Molly's work. Those who like to delve feet first into the trials and tribulations of young love with flair for the forbidden will always be onto a winner with this woman. So, okay, love triangles are not for everybody and those of us who picked up and jumped into Taking Chances know that you are in for one hell of a rough ride - but, unlike some readers, I. Live. For. Those. Moments. And From Ashes did not disappoint.


This story follows the life of Cassidy Jameson. Having lost her beloved Father on her 6th Birthday, her Mother selfishly escaped by drowning her grief within the depths of a bottle. Marrying a fellow heavy drinker less than a year later made for one hell of a life for the young Cassidy. Subjected to the horrors of severe physical abuse from just the tender age of 7, her only refuge was in the form of her best friend, Tyler. Residing two houses down on her street, he was the only person in her world that knew of the severity of her abuse but promised to keep the secret hidden so as not to lose his friend to the Foster care system. Every night she would go to him, as he cleaned her cuts, bandaged her wounds and offered her solace in his arms, it sealed an unbreakable bond as they promised that nothing would ever come between them.

Now at 17, Tyler gets the opportunity attend school in Texas to study alongside his favourite cousin, but knows that he and Cassidy would not be able to survive apart. So he packs her bags, gives her Mother and Step-Father a piece of his mind, throws her into his SUV and heads for the Interstate.

1.0 out of 5 stars Nope... 13 Jan 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Sorry, really disliked this one. The constant berating of the best friend because he 'wasn't' man enough' to tell anyone about the abuse just irritated me beyond belief, as did he female protagonist's willingness to let the men in her life tell her what to do. There were also too many characters and too many instances where I was just wondering what the heck this had to do with moving the story forward. Didn't like any of the lead characters at all- both males let her down in many ways and were just too controlling.
