Review #240: Fearsome- S.A. Wolfe

Title: Fearsome
Author: S.A. Wolfe
Pages: 464
Format: Paperback
Rating: 4/5 Stars
Summary: Jessica Channing’s big city life should be more exciting than sixty-hour work weeks and popcorn nights with her girlfriends, but it’s not. She has worked hard fulfilling her role as a child prodigy and graduating college years before her peers. She’s the good girl, the brilliant girl.

Unfortunately, she’s also the dateless young woman.

That all changes with one phone call. Jess’s rigid, predictable life upends when she must visit a small, obscure town to deal with a relative’s death. This isn’t just any little speck of a town, though. Long lost memories come crashing down on Jess’s world when two men, the Blackard brothers, seem to lure her in. 

Dylan is cover model handsome, and pursues Jess the minute she comes to town. Then there is tall, dark and gorgeous Carson, who hides his own secrets behind his hardened reserve. 

For someone who has been governed by her own obsessive behaviors and fears, Jess lets her guard down and jumps at the opportunity to have an affair with a man she actually finds attractive for a change.

There’s just one problem. Jess discovers that she can’t have a simple romantic fling because true passion does indeed come with some very big strings attached to it. She will have to own up to her own truths about love and face the two extraordinary men; both troubled in their own ways and both determined to have her.

Genre: Romance
This novel contains graphic sexual content and strong language. It is intended for mature readers.

Review: I received this book free from Goodreads First Reads in exchange for an honest review.

I was initially drawn to this novel because of the beautiful cover. (Not going to lie, that is why I entered the giveaway). Once I received the book and read the summary I was kind of nervous because it is a romantic contemporary. Once I started it I really enjoyed the story and am very glad I had a chance to read it. I liked that it dealt with all kinds of stuff, virginity, sex, love, mental illness and much more. The only thing that i didn't care for was the insta-love and it happened not only once but twice and back to back. Otherwise I really enjoyed it and i enjoyed that it was rather sexy and that it had quite a few very intimate and sexy scenes. 
I will absolutely check out more books by this author. I would recommend this novel to fans of NA contemporary love stories.

About this author

S. A. Wolfe lives with her very loud, opinionated children and husband in New York City. She is a voracious reader and passionate about writing, and sometimes she simply stares at a blank wall and calls it "writing." Most of the time, she loves hanging out with friends and family and walking around the city pretending she's a tourist.
