I was Gifted this book by the author for my honest review. Along with another of her books (Collide)

Melissa Toppen has one of the best writing styles i have seen for a long time. Her books flow and make such an easy read its difficult to find any faults in her work.

Her characters are captivating and you feel like you know and care for them as you are reading about their lives.

Addison and Liam are no different. Though they start their relationship in one of the most strange ways it works. they work.
She has just been dumped on the side of the road by her long term boyfriend and he well, he has a little bit of a 'colorful' past with women.

She has trust issues and he wants her to trust him; which due to his past end up being a difficult thing for Addison to do.

Leaving the book on a cliff hanger has honestly made me itch for more! I Loved this book and this book couple and i cant wait to find out what happens next for them!

HASH(0x95c837a4) out of 5 stars Fabulous !! 3 May 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Now, the cover alone should receive the highest rating! We love it simple and we love the color pink! One of us is even a huge fan of Martinis * wink wink to Allison * so the cover really made our day.
The image on the cover actually has something to do with the story. Call us easy to please, but we get excited everytime we find a connection between the cover and story. Those are pretty rare these days ( you know....a guy with washboard tummy on a book cover and the hero (in the same book) is lean and sleek? Totally unacceptable)

While we were reading Consumed, we thought that the book was a great read. Nothing to spiffy, just a great story that held our attention. The characters were well displayed and each of them had their own voices. Addison was a brokenhearted young woman who turned into a stong-headed personality. We enjoyed to see how she went from a miserable, opinionless church mouse into a stunning, brand new , independent woman who new what she wanted.
Liam Mason.

Liam was this God- like handsome man who wanted Addison the minute he laid eyes on her. He was a normal guy with a normal job and had it bad for the woman who just came out of a screwed up relationship.

Now, here's the thing....throughout the whole story we felt Liam's character was being held back. We knew nothing other than how fabulous his appearance was and that he worked/ lived in a casino, and that he had a history he himself wasn't too proud of. The fact that he always wanted to get to know Addison was good, but for some reason....his character was left out, leaving us with no deeper insight. We figured maybe that was what the author wanted....just to focus more on Addison than Liam.....but then our world was flipped upside down!

OMG! Damn the author to hell for putting us through such agony when we finished the book! How dare she write such an exciting cliffhanger!?
NOTE: send author flowers for the deadly awesome cliffhanger.

We enjoyed reading about the breakup, the pain Addison went through, the changing...and all. We also had fun getting to know all the sub-characters. Each of them were fantastic and unique. But the end had us starved for more!

Picture this: Us chilling on the sofa, reading Consumed and eating chips. And then BAM! The last page and we choke on our chips out of pure shock.

We only have one thing we didn't like about this book. To us, the relationship between Liam and Addison felt rushed. It all happened to fast. But other than that.....we can't complain and are eagerly waiting to read the second installment..:-)

Would we recommend this book?
Yes. Absolutely. It's a great romance novel.
Would we re-read this book?
Yeah, we would..:-)

HASH(0x95c837f8) out of 5 stars Very well worth your time and $$! 15 April 2014
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com

what an amazing series! the storyline kept my interest and the characters are well developed. one of my favorite things about this series is how real the characters are. they do not have a crazy broken past that they have to work through. I'm not saying they don't have issues...but the issues they have are realistic and believable. the characters are down to earth and seemingly real. the series never gets so over the top that it's unbelievable. the story has a lot of romance and some red hot scenes but sex is always secondary to the story. I never felt like the author was dragging out the story just to fill pages or adding fluff just to have the characters jump back into bed, which was nice. there are a few minor editing issues, which were irritating but not so drastic that it detracted from the story for me.

HASH(0x95c83ad4) out of 5 stars By page one Addison had me hooked 12 Sept. 2014
By Laura - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Ok I'm not going to lie when I first started this book I was not feeling well and was super tired, so I told myself I would read a couple pages then go to sleep, well that went right out of my head because Addison pulled me right in and I was instantly hooked!! I love how Addison found herself among her breakup with Grayson and kept on through out the whole book, even when her heart wavered her mind was there to snap her out of it which is sexy and powerful!!! Now Liam, Liam, Liam!! I totally agreed with Addison he was something much more(you will see no spoilers here) even with those thoughts Liam was easy to love, how he cares for Addison how he makes her see her own self worth through his eyes and his actions (sighs) you will fall in love even harder with Addison's man, all the things he does for her and (shudders) to her, well yummy doesn't do him justice, neither does sexy, addictive, divine, caring, protective, and hot!! Nope those words only show you a small piece of Addison's Liam.
Kristina and Dana are the best friends every girl/woman hopes to have, friends who love you at your best and say your freaking awesome at your worst now here's some chocolate and oh yeah we are going out to party!!! Yes I loved these two women on team Addie!! Aunt Kelly sounded like a blast that even though I have a pretty awesome aunt I wanted to reach in and steal Aunt Kelly just for a bit... I loved this story so much that when I got to the end of the ebook I kept flicking my finger across the screen because I couldn't believe it was over, but to my epic sadness it had ended on a CLIFFHANGER lol but to my relief the next page was saying the second book was already out which I normally would put on my never ending future books to buy but nope I added it to my must pay today bills and shopping list because I want to see where Addison and Liam end up!! Definitely recommend this book!!
Melissa Toppen you have created a beautiful story that has hooked me since the first page and for that I thank you!!!

I received a copy of this book from the author for my honest review.

HASH(0x95c86018) out of 5 stars 2 1/2 stars...not 3 22 Jun. 2014
By CritiC - Published on Amazon.com

Let me start by elaborating on the fact that i am let down by this story. I do believe that I was expecting this novel to be very interesting and that i would be hooked immediately. However, I found myself bored and irritated for more that the first half of the book.

I was introduced to Addison, a young woman who had just been kicked out of her house buy her 8 year boyfriend. Luckily, she has friends and moves in with the one she also works with at an advertising business. As Addison and her friends go to one of hte casino/bar. It is here that Addison meets Liam the 'bartender' who is incredibly handsome.

Here is where i become annoyed. She keeps running into Liam, and even though she 'wants him', she keeps running away from him. They have a date, they kiss; she runs. He calls her; she never calls back. She wants him; she stays away. Liam finally finds a way to see her again and this time she doesn't run away, but she is close.

Now, when i first met 'the bartender', i assumed he was more than that. When Addison asks him, 'have you always wanted to be a bartender', and he spits out/chokes on his beverage, my assumptions are more solid. There are many things that he talks about that should have made her say 'what other jobs have you had/do you have', 'what did you do with all the money your uncle left you',? But she ignores.

It is in the last few chapters of the story, that i actually become interesting to the story. Of course the author puts it at the end since it is a trilogy (so far it is and i assume it is three). I am debating on whether i should move on to the second one, but i can't imagine i will pay more than .99c.

HASH(0x95c838b8) out of 5 stars Great Read! 21 Sept. 2014
By Lorena Garcia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
**I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review**

I have to say that I was smitten with this book from the beginning to end. The story really captivated me and it was one of those books that you start to read and just can't find yourself to put down.

Addison is a girl who gets her heart broken by her boyfriend of 8 years. She thought that they would be together forever, but not everything works out the way we want right!

Liam is an ordinary guy working as a bartender at one of the nightclubs at the hotels on the Las Vegas strip. Liam and Addison meet one night when she goes out with her friends and there's instant attraction. Addison doesn't want to act on her feelings towards him because she's still hurt by what happened with Grayson, she needs to get over that first before she can think about another relationship.

Liam is a mysterious man and he isn't straightforward with Addison and that's the one thing that Addison does not approve of, is lies. Even though Addison is drawn to Liam she really gives him a run for his money and boy does she play hard to get (you go girl!)

I loved the fact that Addison was a very pretty strong heroine in spite of what happened to her and how her ex treated her. I loved Liam and all the mysteriousness he had going for him. Loved how relentless he was in pursuing Addison and he wouldn't give up because he knew that she was it for him.

The only problem is that he wasn't honest with her from the get go and now this is going to be a big factor in the 2nd book, which now I am dying to read because I need to know what is going to happen with these two lovebirds.

I thought this was a very well written story and found that I fell in love with the characters in this book. Her friends are even wonderful to her and are there to support her no matter what. Nowadays, it's hard to have true caring friends like that.

Ms. Toppen, I give you 5 stars on this book. I truly loved it and can't wait to continue reading about Addison and Liam!!
