Enlightened by C.C. Brown


Ena’s 4 Star Review

Conclusion of Red Flags by C.C. Brown.  Please if you have NOT read Red Flags do NOT read this review!

After the blow up that took place in Heath and revealing all the secrets that Jason has kept hidden from Cara she finds herself brokenhearted.  Now back home she tries to decide how to pick up the pieces that are left of her heart and move on with her life without Jason.

Her heart still aches for the love that Jason showed her.  Her body still craves the feel of him on her, but her mind is telling her to forget about him and move on.  After everything they have been through she isn’t sure she will ever be able to give her heart away – most of it is still with Jason.

After losing the one girl that made him want to be a better person, Jason takes a step back and looks at his life and what he needs to do to not only clean it up but also to hopefully win back the girl that he pushed away with the lies and secrets that he kept hidden from her.  Secrets he was afraid to tell her because he was afraid of losing her.

With everything on the table and all parties involved being enlightened on the dirty secrets of Jason’s past, will Cara listen to her heart and forgive Jason or will her mind and doubt win in the end of end whatever future they could have had.

Will Jason’s dirty past and dark secrets ruin the one good thing that has ever happened to him?  Or will he stand back and make a change?  How far will Jason go to win back the love of his life and the question is will she be there waiting for him?

“I love you so much.  I want to make things in our world right again.  I want your face to be the last thing I see at night before I go to bed, and I want it to be the first thing I see in the morning when I wake up.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Ena’s thoughts~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Cara, well what can I say about her.  She really bugged me in this book.  I understand she was hurt and she was guarding her heart from getting hurt further but I wanted to smack her many many times throughout this book.  She was always so worried about what everyone else thought and it DROVE ME INSANE!!!!!! I wanted her to just follow her heart and say screw everyone else, it was her life not theirs.

I wanted to tell Cara exactly what Hunter told her and for her to actual LISTEN….

“Cara, you are the only one you should be listening to.  If you want to go back then go back.  If you don’t, then don’t.  You can’t let anyone else dictate your feelings.”


Oh but wait guys get this there is a new guy now too – Damien aka Italian Stallion…Oh I wanted to like him and in the beginning I kind of did – he was hot and sin and very cocky but he made it oh so sexy but HELLO douche alert!  Ugh – can’t stand the guy!!!  He deserves, what’s her name again – oh yes HOE BAG Stacey!!

I adored Jason from the very first time I met him in Red Flags and even after EVERYTHING that happened at the end of that book I still love him.  I believed in him, I wanted him to win Cara’s heart.  Yes he was cocky and had a bad temper – but he loved hard and he would do anything just to have Cara by his side.

Jason truly does love Cara and being apart from her crushed him – he was like a broken man that I wanted to fix and hell if Cara didn’t want him I would take him and love him HARD.

“You have no idea what those words meant to me, Cara.  I felt like you had gutted me right there on the floor.  People can say whatever they want to me, but your words mean the most, and definitely cut the deepest.”

Jason showed so much growth in this book – he knew he needed to change some things and he was willing to do that not only for Cara but for himself.  I will forever heart Jason Bradley!  He says some of the sweetest and sexiest things and his dirty talk – holy hell!  Panty changer! He loves her and wants to make it right.

“Gorgeous, you’ve got me — all of me.” HELLO SWOON WORTHY!!

Now even though Jason is all sweet and sexy as hell – he still has his temper which I find oh so sinfully sexy makes me want to do naughty things to him.

“I’m going to let you walk out of here, without so much as a wrinkle on your pretty little designer suit.  But if you ever come near Cara again, I’ll beat your ass so quick you won’t know if I’m coming or going.” —–BOOM!!!

I was rooting for Jason from page 1 and I continued to root for him throughout Enlightened as well!  Jason and Cara deserve their happiness after everything they went through.  I adore C.C. Brown for giving for creating this love story between these 2 characters because it’s all very realistic and something you could see in everyday life.

So I could seriously keep going and keep quoting and keep telling you how sexy Jason is and how much I love his character but what I can say was that I loved this series.  I couldn’t wait to get my hands on Enlightened and find out what happened with their relationship.  C.C. Brown did a wonderful job with these characters and their emotions and I really just loved them!  Both Red Flags and Enlightened are both wonderful reads
