<— P.S. TEAR-JERKER ALERT!! Or should I say… UGLY-CRY alert! ;)

Donna: … I am heartbroken

Julie: Donna – you have to read Carnage 2! The first Carnage tears your heart out and I think the sequel puts it back together.

Amy: I forgot to tell you guys what I thought of Carnage. Okay, where do I start…y’all saw what I said above but saying that I was emotionally exhausted is definitely worth repeating. The angst was there, especially in some parts, but it was more of an emotional rollercoaster for me. I started out having an anxious tummy because if things are that sweet and perfect in the beginning you just *know* something’s coming that’s gonna hurt. Then BAM, sonofawhore! That’s when I started getting emotionally exhausted. In a good way, of course. *giggle* Things started looking up, some hot lovin’ was thrown in, and then…ohhhh, that was not nice to do to him. Not nice at all. *shakes head* You guys know who I’m talking about. But everything was better and all was right in the world and then…*gasp* What are ya thinking???? Arghhh! Really?? Why would you do that. *sigh* But then it’s okay again. Of course. So, I’m about wiped out emotionally at that point and wondering what the heck else is coming, and then… No, no, NO!! WTF?!?!? Lots of crying. Lots of hugging my manatee. Lots of needing comfort snuggles…

Michelle: Oh Amy :( Carnage made me ugly cry too! I love those books though just for the fact that I was totally invested.

Solange: I just loved CARNAGE #1 and #2…2 a little more than 1, I have to say. I loooved the dialogues, the steamy scenes…and just everything about it. I am not familiar with the british slangs and witty humor, but got used to it at some point and just dove into the story. I have to say this story will stay with me for a looong time. it’s up there with Fifty Shades for me. For those of you who read it, i am teamCAMERON all the way, although I loved the strong and sweet bond Georgia shared with Sean. And the ending! OMG! Ok enough. Read this, people…you won’t regret it.

About book #1:

I love him, from the instant I set eyes on him when I was just 11 years old I have loved him and nothing will ever change that, he owns me, he owns my heart and he owns my body and no matter how many lies are told, no matter how many people conspire to keep us apart, despite the fame and the distance, we will find a way.

“Georgia Rae, when we made love you used to cry”… He waits for me to sing my bit. I try to swallow down a sob but I just end up singing through it…
“I said I love you like the stars above, I’ll love you till I die”

Carnage, an edgy coming of age love story that breaks all the rules and transcends the decades. Georgia and Sean’s story will stay with you long after you read the final word. An emotional, smoking hot, gut wrenching read

She also updated us with:

“Last night I dreamed I was sitting on a balcony, smoking cigarettes and drinking red wine with Marley Layton. The stories that man had to tell  I had to get up at 4am and start writing them down. ‪#‎amwriting‬‪#‎marleylayton‬ ‪#‎morecarnage‬

This sounds crazy good! Let me make sure I’m understanding, though. Story is completed in book #2, the another character is book #3??

Tracy April 16, 2015 at 11:17 AM

I don’t know if my poor heart could take another book! I sobbed at the end of the Carnage. I’ve teared up and sniffed a bit with other books but Carnage broke me.

LOVE-HATE. LOVE-HATE. This is my relationship with Carnage…. (but sometimes you need that to jolt you out of a book slump).

Julie April 26, 2015 at 6:40 PM

I’ve read all of Lesley Jones books now and loved them all. If you read Carnage you can’t stop until you read the second book – it’s a must and a five star. So many books I forget but I remember this one like I just read it. A few of the Carnage crew show up briefly in Conviction. Resolution/Saviour is a different story line but I thoroughly enjoyed it too. Carnage 2 will always be my favorite though. I highly recommend it!

Well, I have been warned and still one-clicked Carnage and started last night. I’ll keep the tissues on deck.

I also just finished Pucked-up and I loved it!
