<— KIDNAPPED & HELD CAPTIVE WITH HER SISTER’S FIANCÉ ALERT!! HOLY MOLY THIS BOOK BLEW MY MIND and now there is a book #3?? IT JUST WENT LIVE?? I didn’t even realize this was part of a series (I just knew our fellow readers were crazy for other books in her repertoire), but the fact that the author mentions that we should read Still Beating & Lotus first, clues me into the fact that we’re going full circle, or revisiting certain characters and I AM SO EXCITED!!!
P.S. Here’s my 4.5 STAR review of “Still Beating”
Lynn: I have just finished reading Still Beating by Jennifer Hartmann and before that I read her latest release, The Wrong Heart. They were both incredible emotional reads! If you want to experience feels and epic love stories then these two books are a must read! This is a new author to me and I am so in love with her flawless writing and storytelling.
Kelly: Still Beating was also really good. Very trigger-y and VERY dark but so well written. The next book, Lotus, was my fave of the 2. Again dark and has lots of triggers but holy moly did I love it.
R. Renee: I started Lotus last night and I’m already hooked. I may like it even better than that one!
Kathe: Still Beating was the best book I read this year!
Jill: Loved Still Beating, haven’t read Lotus but need to now that there’s a 3rd by Jennifer.
Linda: Great series!! Cannot wait to read the 3rd book!!
So all that, and I need to mention, I’ve not been able to find a “series” name, so I’m just going to call this post the “Still Beating” series, since it was the first. I’ll update if a new series name is announced.
About book #1:
☆ #1 Amazon Bestseller in three separate categories! ☆ WARNING: This book contains subject matter that may be sensitive for some readers. There is dark and triggering content between these pages. 18+ only. Please read responsibly.
When Cora attends her sister’s birthday party, she expects at most a hangover or a walk of shame. She doesn’t anticipate a stolen wallet, leaving her stranded and dependent on Dean—her arch nemesis and ultimate thorn in her side.
And she really doesn’t anticipate waking up in shackles in a madman’s basement.
To make matters worse, Dean shares the space in his own set of chains.
After fifteen years of teasing, insults, and practical jokes, the ultimate joke seems to be on them. The two people who always thought they’d end up killing each other must now work together if they want to survive.
But Cora and Dean have no idea their abductor has a plan for them. A plan that will alter the course of their relationship, blur the line between hate and love, and shackle them together with far more than just chains.
SERIES READING ORDER:
The Stars Are on Our Side is a FOLLOW-UP novel to Still Beating and Lotus, featuring fan-favorite characters Tabitha and Gabe. It is HIGHLY recommended that you read both Still Beating and Lotus prior to reading this book for the most effective reading experience.
