A tragic past. A forgotten week. A broken heart.
When Braelynn wakes up in a hospital bed with a week of her life missing, she turns to the darkness that she didn’t know she craved.
Lost and confused she’s left empty.
Addiction. Fear. A broken soul.
Peyton Haas is self–assertive, determined to get what he wants, and for the first time in his life—in love.
But is he willing to face the demons that haunt Braelynn?
Their love was like no other—steamy, heart–stopping… Beautiful.
It was the first time the either of them had let someone in. But one week was all it took to change their lives forever.
Will their love be enough to keep them together? Coherent, book two in the Consensual Series.
After the emotional and “edge of your seat” ending to Consensual I was dying to get my hands on Coherent. This book picks up right where the first book ended and you definitely need to read book one before diving into this one.
Braelynn wakes up drugged, broken, and with very little memory of what happened to her. All she wants is her friends, her sister, and the man she loves to be there to support her. But not everything is as it seems and this causes some major doubt and trust issues to occur.
Honestly this part of the book made me a bit mad- I didn’t like seeing this weaker version of Braelynn. I expected her to fight… Fight for her relationships, her job, her life, and really to fight for the truth.
Also I was very disappointed in her friends and sister- but I was especially disappointed in Hass. He should have fought for her and believed in her. The doubt and lack of trust was SO hurtful!
Instead of channeling this hurt and getting her life on track, Braelynn chose the path leading to exactly what everyone thought she was doing in the first place. Which in some ways was very understandable; she was lost, lonely, broken, and feeling like the world she knew and everything around her was gone. But boy, she really had to spiral out of control, before she could get back up again.
“Peyton’s love was my everything… Needing him like I needed my next breath was an understatement. He was the breath I needed to keep me going.”
Livia’s writing, as usual, was really good. The emotions she brings out in her characters and the feelings I felt while reading this book were intense. Plus all the small details she includes were so well done. I really give her credit for taking this book in a direction that probably went against what readers were hoping for and allowing the characters to really explore their problems and feelings. Plus I must mention that she knows how to write a HOT and steamy scene like no other! I will never look at fruit salad the same way, just saying!!
Peyton’s hands pulled me by the waist towards him and Landon turned away, walking back through the crowd. My eyes were locked on him until he vanished in the crowd.
“You were flirting,” Peyton growled, his lips brushing my temple.
I turned to face him, my eyes locking with his. “No, I wasn’t.” My lips pouted.
“I saw you.” His hand crawled up my arm, wrapping around the flesh.
“You didn’t see shit. I wasn’t flirting,” I hissed through my teeth.
“Do you want him, Lynn?” Peyton asked, bringing his lips over mine but refusing to kiss me. “Knowing that another man wants you … does that turn you on?” His tongue slid across my bottom lip.
“Does it bother you that you’re not the only who sees me?”
“You were flirting.”
“You left me. To be with her.”
