Brilliant box set from Diana Gardin.
I loved this group of characters and friends, all in there early 20's nearing the end of college and working, the party days and man-whore ways are over for the boys and it's a journey of falling in love and becoming adults.
In book 1 & 2 it's Clay and Paige's story followed by Drew and Gill in book 3.
I was completely engaged in the plot throughout both story's and each packed with its own angst,drama, danger, hotness, twists and turns and everything I love in a romance read.
Loving Diana Gardin books and looking forward to more.
The Ashes Series boxed set is now on sale for Preorder, set at 99 PENNIES for a limited time!
I hauled her up into my arms so that she was flush against the front of me, every single soft part of her lined up with every hard part of me.
“There.” My voice was rough as I carried her back to her room.
I tossed her on the bed, and then shed my clothing like a snake sheds its skin. They were in the way of what I wanted, what I needed. A few seconds later I was crawling up and over Gillian on the bed, her eyes hooded and dark as she watched me prowl closer and closer.
How can she not know that she’s mine?
I was about to show her just how much she belonged to me. Whether she wanted to admit it or not.
OUR REVIEW OF OUT OF THE ASHES:
READ AS PART OF THE BOX SET
Loved this college romance.
Paige is a girl trying to move on after losing everything including people she loved in a fire. Her scars have faded but still visible and the nightmares and memories are still very present. With the support of her best friend and a year of physical healing Paige is ready to start college.
Paige is a girl still trying to find her way gaining her confidence with every step.
Clay, he's a popular guy, on the football team, a guy the girls fall over, typical College Jock.
It's an insta love story for Clay and a shift in his whole behavior takes place to get the girl who he literally ran into at the bookstore and was unable to forget.
A journey of young love, healing, trust, fears and in the mix a Jealous delusional evil ex and drama.
I was loving the plot, Clay turned out to be a sweet and swoon worthy guy.
"You're gorgeous. Sexy. Adorable. Your imperfections they only make you perfect for me and that's the gadamn truth"
"if I'm not with you I'm always on my way to you"
So the man-whore Clay who entered this book melted away with his adoring words for Paige.
Told in dual pov's I was completely glued to the pages and loving Paige and Clay's journey.
Ending on a huge cliffhanger there's comfort in the fact this is a three part box set already complete and I am looking forward to book 2.

They’re both learning how to love, but Clay’s ex-girlfriend Hannah won’t make it easy for them. She puts a target on Paige’s back, and won’t stop until she’s derailed their budding romance once and for all. Who will be left standing after the ashes settle for the second time? (
