When you think about your life are there things you would reverse?

Amanda’s Review

 

I am a huge fan of this series!  I really like this book, but just can’t say I loved it as much as the first 2!  There was so much going on that every time I felt like I might have it all figured out, another twist came out of nowhere! Conflicted is a fast faced, drama-filled, emotional and angsty roller coaster ride!    Sophie definitely keeps you on your toes in this book!

Derek Scott is the drummer for Battlescars!  He has a past full of tragedy and regret!  Because of this he has a hard time letting anyone in.  In his 26 years of life he has also made a few mistakes and the most recent one is making him very confused and lost.
“Fucking-A, maybe I’m gay!  Hey, that rhymed.”
After Blake and Piper’s wedding, Derek found himself drunk and having a threesome… with a woman and a man! Enjoying himself was something he didn’t expect and he has no idea what that means and it is driving him crazy!  But then Joss, Blake’s 20 year old baby sister, comes into town to visit and he feels like maybe he can get his life back on track.  She calms him and understands him without him having to even try.
“I’m addicted to you, but more than that, you’re special to me.  You always will be.”
Joss is young and has always had a connection with Derek.  They have secrets between them that she will never share.  She is also insanely attracted to him, and when they decide to have sex and not be emotionally attached… it is HOT, I mean off the charts chemistry!
“Fucking-A, you rocked my world sweetheart” I said honestly.  Grinning, she smiled back. “You set mine on fire.”
But when Joss goes back home things start to happen that separate them.  Derek knows he needs to get his mind straight and learn to open up and forgive.  And Joss needs to grow up and figure out who she is.  They both start seeing other people and are happy, but is happy enough… or could their be more?
This book was one crazy emotional ride!  I felt that it was a little too fast paced in some areas and way too many side stories that sometimes left me confused.  But overall I loved Derek and Joss!  Getting to hear more about the other characters I LOVE was also fantastic!  Still an amazing series and I will be looking for more soon I hope… Kevin???
