"Damaged Girls II" by Janice G. Ross
"Get excited, cry, curse, hate, love, and despise! If you’ve already read Damaged Girls I, then these emotions should be familiar. The Damaged Girls Family & Relationship Series began with an introduction to the complex love triangle of Steven Briggs, Jillian McConnell and Jessica Rodney. In the second book of the series, Damaged Girls II, get pulled deeper into the trauma and gain valuable knowledge of why Jillian and Jessica might be such easy targets for a womanizer such as Stevie. Jillian has to come to terms with the crumbling idea of love that she desperately needed to find in Stevie. And Jessica is forced to grow up and away from the man she so badly wanted to keep forever. Stevie even realizes that he needs to get a grip on the drama he created years back; while his decisions and behaviors continue to spiral deeper into selfishness. Unfortunately, Stevie’s insatiable appetite has not diminished, only causing him to become less likeable.
Will the three ever learn? As life progresses, we must confront our past, move into our present and plan sensibly for our future. How will Stevie, Jillian and Jessica cope, when life just can’t seem to smile in favor of their original desires? Damaged Girls is not a romance novel outlined in love. It is not pleasant and idealistic, but very cruel and extremely unsavory. In fact, it is deep and rather dark at times. The story focuses on emotional, physical and sexual abuse, and how easily its effects can cause some to own the title of Damaged Girls."
What I received from this read....
This author really gives the reader a lots of tragedy and heartbreak as the story continues from
"Damaged Girls I" with all the drama that was caused by Stevie and his women. I liked how this author was able to give the readers such a intriguing story showing the dysfunctional drama involving some very interesting characters where friendships will be tested. All of this will greatly bring out to the reader the emotional makeup of a damaged girls dealing with their traumatic events of their past in this doomed triangle. I found this a very interesting read about this predator who was a very sick and twisted person. As I was reading through this story I couldn't help but to wonder what tragedy will their be for a certain character and what can have been done to keep these type of people out of their daily life's? Now, I don't want to spoil it so I will say at this point you will have to pick up the novel and see for yourself how this author presents to the reader. I will say this author really knows how to speak her mind and give the reader something very important to know and think about.
"Damaged Girls II" will definitely grab your attention and since it leaves us with a cliff hanger we will have to go the next sequel for the rest of this interesting story.
