Review : Sweetest Venom by Mia Asher


4 Frustratingly Beautiful Stars…. 

This is part 2 of Blair, Lawrence, and Ronan’s story. And I have to say I can’t recall a book that I had to put down because I was so frustrated with my own emotions.

I love him, I hate him, I love him, I hate him. Why can’t I choose… this is going on in my head the whole time I am reading… Frustrating I KNOW!! 

Blaire, oh Blaire I can’t blame this girl she hasn’t had an easy life and she falls back on what she knows. Keeping herself safe and protected at all costs. Only in the process she hurts those around her.  She grows so much in this book and breaks my heart in it too. I can’t fault her for her choices who could? You see her struggle just as much with everything and everyone.  

Awe Lawrence this sweet, sweet man has my heart.  He is so stoic being hurt before and doesn’t want to go through that again so he puts safe guards up. If paying for it will helps so be it, he does that so that he doesn’t have to feel that kind of loss again.  When I picture him in my mine he is this strong formidable man with a soft center who needs the love of a good women. For the record I am totally Team Lawrence! 

Ronan oh boy she puts him through his paces boy howdy I can’t help but feel for him and what his heart is going through. I wanted him to fight, fight, and fight for her.  Watching him in this book I can’t tell if I like what he has become or if I fear it. You can’t have what you want so what is your choice? Move on or Wallow? I think he did a little of both… naughty, naughty Ronan… Yummy, Yummy Ronan.

Both of these men are amazing in their own right and to have loved and lost can’t be easy but how do you choose? How do you decide who you can’t live without? Can you love two people? These are some of the questions I asked myself while reading this book. Heck I even had a one sided conversation with the hubs about these guys. That’s funny now that I think about it. Poor Hubby. 

So I leave you with a confused head and heart because this book took all my emotions and threw them back at me. With these quotes,

“You make hell feel like heaven, Blaire.”

“Simple. I saw a man who wanted more.”

“I hate you for making me love you, and I hate myself because I can’t stop.”

“Give me a thousand lives and a thousand eternities, and I would still find you and make you mine. Always.”

“One lifetime wouldn’t be enough when I’m with you, babe.”

“There’s no room for logic when the heart is involved. To love is to lose all senses of reason.”   - My favorite.
