The second book in the series, I was delighted when I got my hands on this one, I’ve been looking forward seeing where the author was taking not just this story but the series as a whole.
But I will say right here and now, this an emotional book, there were aspects of Alyssa’s life that I really found distressing, she had been through so much that I just wanted to reach into the kindle and give her a hug.
Alyssa lives hand to mouth, but her crappy little apartment might not be much but it is a million times better than the time she spent on the street.
Doing everything she can to keep her merge roof over her head she is one disaster away from losing everything, little did she know that her disaster was just around the corner and it was called Chris Richardson.
Chris is the bass player for the Dragon Knights but when he is accidentally doused in coffee at Alyssa’s place of work, he is none too forgiving and the resulting furore leads to just one outcome…Alyssa gets fired.
Could life kick her anymore? She really is barely scraping by as it is but when she is mugged and her backpack stolen, it is the final straw, she has nothing left to lose and makes a decision that will leave it mark forever.
I wasn’t over armoured with Chris initially and even when he showed some semblance of remorse for the fact that she had lost her job, I still was struggling to actually get a feel for the real Chris, but when fate stirred things up a bit and brought the two of them together again, it was his chance to put his best foot forward and there was no chance that he could deny that there was something pulling him towards her. Letting her disappear from his life is not an option.

hadn't read the first in this series but didn't need to to enjoy this book. Alyssa has a very dark past full of horrific abuse and neglect. She has spent years hiding from the authorities trying to scrape a living from selling her artwork on the street. Chris is troubled bass player in a well known rock band. After fighting an addiction to drugs, he then uses sex as his high. Using as many girls as he can along the way. After 2 disastrous meetings,Chris feels obligated to help Alyssa after she is injured in an accident. Both become increasingly attracted to each other but past experiences prove very difficult to overcome for both of them. Past reactions and choices emerge to bite both of them in the backside. Can they find a way to forge a brighter future together or will the past force them apart.
This book covers some very difficult subjects which could trigger strong reactions in the reader. Has mature content which is upsetting, though does explain why the characters act and react the way they do to each other. I wanted to bang Chris and Alyssa's heads together on occasion but I did enjoy the strength the main characters had to find deep inside themselves. The story itself is fast paced and held my interest well. I would recommend this author and look forward to the rest of the series.

I've not read enough of this authors books. That's what I'm thinking after finishing this great read.

This is a brilliant story that kept me up one night and had me reading the whole book in one sitting. Yep it's that kinda read.
My one big problem is reviewing such a great book is difficult as I don't want to spoil it for anyone.
Alyssa is running from her past. She's been through so much that my heart broke for her. I so wanted to be her friend and be there to help her.
The main male character Chris certainly grew on me as I didn't like him at the start. He certainly redeemed himself as I read further into the story.

This is a beautiful well written story that certainly pulled on my heartstrings.

I'm looking forward to reading more from this author.

This is book #2 in The Dragon Knight Trilogy but can be read as a
standalone.

WOW! What can I say? Colors is one book that will pull at every
heartstring you own. I was hooked from the first page and was pulled
into the harrowing story of Alyssa and Chris. Two people with horrible
pasts and secrets they want to keep hidden. When fate brings them
together, each of them slowly begin to let their guards down and begin to
open up to each other about their pasts. Can Alyssa and Chris fight the demons of their pasts together or are their souls just too dark to be able to make things work?

Colors will take you on one emotion roller-coaster so make sure you have some tissues ready because you will need them.

HASH(0x9d63b078) out of 5 stars Eating Crow For Dinner Tonight! 27 April 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
That I have the "honor" to be the first paperback reader to review this astonishing book...well I don't know that I deserve this honor but I will try and do this masterpiece justice. I loved book one of Ms. Duran's "Dragon" series so I had really high expectations for the second in the series. I was beyond emotionally invested in the first two characters and I wanted assurance that they would appear in this book in some form. What did I do? I started bugging and nagging Gabbie of course. Do I have that kind of influence or power? Of course not! Did Ms. Duran respect her readers enough to take this into consideration...yes. This is a very important distinction that books you read by this mistress of writing does for us and we love her for respecting us this much. She manages to do all this without compromising her authority as the ruler and vision of her series. She clearly has a plan and what a plan it was. I "never" thought I would say this...crow is baking as we speak...but this book "might" be even better than the first one. Oh no...I didn't just say that...OK I did. Yes we knew some about our guy from book one. Just enough to peek our interest. Our gal...Holy Cow...was she a revelation. Both of these characters are incredibly deep and I could have read even more pages had she given me more. Both complex to the point where you find yourself "ugly" crying at times. Our gal could have taken on a very sappy dynamic but Ms. Duran rode that line like a pro. That she gave us everything we needed and more...I was exhausted at the end of this book. I was also smiling from ear to ear. This is a very emotional story and it is a story I also consider "essential". Most would steer clear of part of the story but she got right into the mix and went into the darkness. What did I find? A masterpiece...yes Ms. Duran...this book is your masterpiece. Let's just see what you do with book three. I better hold that thought as I "am" already eating crow for dinner tonight. You should be amazingly proud of this amazing story. You ticked every single box and more! denise bailey

Letting her disappear from his life is not an option.
Alyssa has secrets that she is desperate to keep to herself but we have all read enough books to know that, that is just never going to happen but what the heck will be Chris’s reaction when he eventually gets the whole truth?
Well he did me proud, he stepped up to the plate and proved that hell would freeze over before he ever and I do mean ever let her go, from a confirmed bachelor to the perfect partner…a step too far, well no not for the right woman and Alyssa was his woman!
A cleverly written book, one that pitched a home run with Alyssa, she had everything going on and I from the get-go I had my fingers crossed that she was going to get her happy ever after, because if there was ever a woman that I wanted all that hearts and flowers s**t for it was her.
While I didn’t know if Chris was the man for the job, I have to say that …the man did good!!!

HASH(0xa14816d8) out of 5 stars Fate has a way of really crashing into Alyssa and Chris... 21 Mar. 2016
By Confessions of a Serial Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Fate has a way of really crashing into Alyssa and Chris.

Scared. Shattered. Rebuilt.

Alyssa escapes her childhood by the skin of her teeth. Shes been hiding in plain sight for over 2 years between loving in a seedy apartment and a shelter for battered women. Everyone thinks that a bad relationship is what has her so leery. If they only knew. The only thing that keeps her going is her art.

Jaded. Addict. Rockstar.

Chris is all that and more. Hes the bassist for the Dragon Knights and practically lives on sex. Its his addiction to curb his past addictions.

Then fate steps in and turns both of their lives upside down. To say that the road to a relationship is rugged would be a pretty big understatement. This book is full of angst, heartbreak, betrayal, love and redemption. Both will have to work for it though.

Its hard to write a review for books such as this because just about everything that can be said is a spoiler. Just know that it really is worth a read and it will keep its hooks in you page after page.

This is my confession: Don't give up on Chris, he does have a lot of redeeming qualities.

HASH(0x9d63b4b0) out of 5 stars This is a very emotional book but well worth reading 25 Mar. 2016
By Michelle Berndt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Wow this book is heartbreaking and beautiful at the same time. Alyssa has been through hell and back but has somehow survived. She blocked out the pain and suffering through her art. Then she meets Chris who turns her world upside down and shows her how to trust. Without giving anything else away I would highly recommend reading this book but it does contain dark scenes containing physical and sexual abuse, so if this is a trigger for anyone then I wouldn't read this book. But thank you Gabbie for writing about such a horrible topic and making more people aware of this type of abuse.
HASH(0xa1481660) out of 5 stars AHMAZING 22 Mar. 2016
By Jamie Zishka - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Colors is the second book in the Dragon Knights Series. Although it is the second book it could be read as a standalone, but I would highly recommend reading Wishful Thinking the first story Lexie and Kaleb's story because you will see more of them in this book. Gabbie's imagination is beyond any author I have read she just knows how to capture your attention from the very first page till the final word. I would give this story a 5 stars and highly recommend to others. This story will capture the lives of Alyssa and Chris, and boy what a whirlwind romance this was.

Alyssa has been through hell and back in the short life that she has lead so far but she has done everything she can to banish her past from the future she is trying to create. She has bad luck in life as it is and when she gets fired from the only job that is keeping her head above water because she had a run in with a broody stranger she finds herself doubting life once again... she continues to pick up the pieces and hopes for something bright to come her way but what she finds is herself in another situation with the same broody stranger that will forever change her

Chris has his life mapped out for him but has demons of his own and vows to never fall in love. He keeps busy with his band and his music its the only thing that keeps his life afloat. When he has a run in with a girl that causes her to loose her job he instantly feels guilt and doesn't know how to make things right... when he finds himself in an even worse situation with the same girl he will make a choice that will forever change his life as well.

Throughout the journey that Chris and Alyssa will endure they find themselves getting lost in each other, but when secrets and demons creep up will they be able to push through them to see the colors and light at the end of the rainbow?

I love this series so hard! I would highly recommend this book and any book really by Gabbie S. Duran because not once has she disappointed me with her creative mind. Get to one clickin this book you will not be at all unsatisfied. Thanks again for another great ride and I look forward to more in this series and to more in general from this author!
