This has been my favourite of the series so far. Roxy just blew me away.
Emotionally raw this was a story of survival, of endurance and strength.
Her past was excruciating and her present with everything that she had and continued to go through with Jag as astonishing. I thought the level of strength she could draw upon was almost bottomless and this was an untainted look at the relationship she has with Jag from her own perspective.
Unlike his story, I liked her straight off the bat but that didn’t stop the fact that I was needed a breather on more than on occasion. It was powerful stuff.
The affect that addiction has on those that are close to the addict weren’t just touched upon, they were laid bare and as much as I wanted everything to be just how it needed to be, I knew that for this pair that wasn’t enough, they relationship was almost torturous but despite it all, they were two halves of the same whole and they both knew it.
For this story…if you are anything like me, you may find that tissues are not an option.
Poor Roxy really hasn't had the best upbringing and finding out more about her past helped understand why she reacts why she does and why she won't let anyone close to her except her sister. She comes across as a bitch at times but it's more about protecting herself rather than been bitchy just for the sake of it.
I enjoyed this book. I've always liked Roxy and seeing things from her POV and getting into her head a bit more made me like her even more than before. The last few chapters killed me. The anxiety, the suspense of what Roxy and Jax was going to do next and the ongoing struggle with addiction was once again put across perfectly.
5 beautiful stars
This is Roxy's point of view to Jags book (book 1 in the series)
This gives more insight to the beginnings of Roxy's life and ends months after Jags book.
Wow! This book was so stressing- in a good way.
Boy o boy! I knew the majority of the story after reading Jags point of view but it STILL made me cry.
Roxy is amazing. She is strong and put up with so so much.
I loved their love story. Jag and Roxy managed to drag me into their lives.
I wanted to cuddle them both.
The last couple of chapters had me sitting on the edge of my seat. I was crying in anticipation.
Addiction is so hard to write and make the reader feel the emotions and feeling for both the addict and the partner trying to help them. My poor heart was beating its way out of my chest. I was rooting for both of them.
I would be useless in Roxy's position. I felt so bad for her but she did right.
My head aches now. I need a stiff drink to calm down and a tissue to wipe away the tears.
Well done Stevie Cole. You have a new fan
I have read Jag and loved it. Roxy was just as good as I enjoyed getting to her head and reading all things from her POV.
I enjoyed reading about what Roxy's life. How she was broken because of her childhood, how she coped with her brothers death at a young age, how she felt about Jag when they first met and her feelings throughout their relationship, the ups, downs and everything in between.
The couple go through so much in their relationship, it's not a easy fairy-tale romance that every girl wants, but this makes the story gritty, full of raw emotions and letting go of the past.
As I had read Jag previously there was parts that were very repetitive and the same as in Jag which I'm not a fan of when reading a story from the other characters POV. Saying that though the story was still good, there was new and interesting information throughout the story that kept me interested and it made it possible to read Roxy as a standalone book.
I loved ready how Roxy and Jag are determined to over come their past and demons and that together they make each other stronger. Their love for each other was very strong and you could tell that and the authors writing of the characters was brilliant to make the reader feel how strong their love was through the pages.
Despite a slight bit of repetitive reading, the majority of the story was original and I praise the author for this. I wish abit more was original though. The story was however wrote as well as Jag and im looking for the next book in the series as I'm loving this series

We met Roxy in book #1 but this is her story. Her tragic tale. Grab you tissues and settle in.
Roxy had a rough start to life. Losing someone at such a young age and then having your family fall apart is hard to recover from. You either crumble or you become hardened to life...Roxy became a bitch.
There's a quote in the book that really struck a cord with me...
"This is a raw, gritty, very real fairy take. It may not be perfect, but it is f*cking beautiful."
This quote encompasses this book perfectly for me. It IS real, it IS gritty and you can't help but get swept along with Roxy.
This is essentially Roxy's story and if you've read book #1, which is Jag's story, you may think that it's just going to be a rehash....another "her view" of the same story but it isn't.
Although I enjoyed book #1, this tale really shows a completely different side. It's not a rock star story, it's much more tragic, much more hurtful and has a desperate quality that has you thinking that maybe sometimes walking away and giving up on love might be the only was to save your shredded heart.
It's hard to admit but I enjoyed this more than the first two books in this series. Despite them being good, this, for me, was just entirely different.
Give it a go, you won't regret it!
