Affliction Review

by Kelly Mooney
Genre: New Adult Contemporary

He couldn’t save her—he wanted to.

He tried—he failed.

For seven years Brody blamed himself for not saving the one girl who ever touched his heart—Samantha Ashburn. That one night altered his life and changed the man he always thought he’d be. Turning to drugs, sex and violence was never part of his plan, but neither was losing his mother or failing Samantha. Brody found solace within his club, the South Street Crew and their criminal activities. He knew one day he’d walk away either in jail, fleeing, or dead.

When Samantha stumbled back into his life on his best friend’s arm, Brody felt the instant connection he’d always experienced when she was near. Forced to claim her in order to protect her from the mafia’s son and his best friend was the only way he knew how to protect her. He refused to lose her a second time. But she wasn’t safe—not in his world. He’d do anything to save her. Anything.


3.0 out of 5 stars Good story but bad flowMarch 25, 2015
This review is from: Affliction (Kindle Edition)
*I received this book free in exchange for an honest review*
Talk about Bad Boys and damaged people. This is book has 2 severly damaged people who are afraid of attachments but at the same time, they are working through a lot of things.
This does turn out to be a great love story, slightly sexy with a lot of thrilling action. But there were some things that really bugged me. There's a lot of extra details that I don't think the book needed. They could have been trimmed out and made the book flow a lot better. The band, totally unnecessary and held no value for the book.
I wasn't a fan of having Anthony's POV, but do see where it was necessary at some points.
There were some editing errors, but nothing detrimental.

This story has a lot of backstabbing, twisting and turning. It's truly an exciting bad boy reformed story. I love Sam's character. She has a lot she's dealt with in life, but keeps going. In all, this story did keep me turning the pages just to see what happened next, I just really would like to see it trimmed to flow better. It's a love/hate relationship with the hero but totally worth it. I say pick it up and decide for yourself.
