Product Description

Product Description

This book contains substantial adult content and language. It also contains topics that may be disturbing to some readers. This includes topics of drug use, rape, and other significant violence. Read at your own risk.

If you choose to read this book, please take all necessary precautions. Your reading device may go up in smoke, you may lose sleep, you may have the urge to throw things, and you may never want it to end. Johnny is a dirty talking, hardened character with a past none of us would want to dream of, but he’ll find his way into your heart and won’t let go.

THE BAD BOY: I’m Johnny. An ex-con with a bad attitude and a controlling demeanor that somehow made the women flock to my bed but never my heart. It was unavailable for possession.

THE TEMPTATION: She was just supposed to be a two day hookup. But one taste of her and I knew I was in danger of never getting enough. She had her own demons to contend with, and dealing with my own was hard enough. I won't allow temptation to take control of me.

THE SENTENCE: I'd given myself a life sentence a long time ago, and she made me want things I wouldn't allow myself to have. Giving into it just might destroy us both.

Bad Boy Johnny get's out of prison and moves to Florida to be closer to his sister. His support through his arrest and prison time. Johnny time incarcerated has changed him and left its mark. He damaged tortured. Johnny good looking and women flock to him, he uses them as a release.
That is until Bex comes along, the hot rock star who is rising. He wants her but she hates men. Bex doesn't want to be another in a long line of women. The chemistry between Johnny and Bex is off the charts. The relationship is on a spinning axis constantly changing. Both are damaged and haunted by their pasts.Johnny and Bex are both under the impression that they don't deserve to be happy. The story does broach some harsh subjects matters but help you understand the characters pasts and actions.
Gritty and dark read but very enjoyable.

*****5 Stars*****

What a book, a badass female lead and a bad boy who just got out of prison. Both with major personal issues that they don’t deal with, but deflect, put them together and you have one hell of a book.

This book had me hooked, no fairy tale love story, but a story full of history’s that can break a person. How either of these two are still standing and living is beyond me.

The Chemistry between Johnny and Bex is HOT, nothing simple and sweet about these two at all and it made the story that much better.

I will be defiantly going in search of more work by this amazing talented author.

4.0 out of 5 stars His greatest weakness is his sister Julia and her family 2 November 2015
By OLGA therebelreader - Published on
Johnny comes out of prison after a two year sentence. His imprisonment was torturous, a complete nightmare. Now he is thirty six years old and has to decide what to do with his life and recover from the demons that are tormenting him. His greatest weakness is his sister Julia and her family. He loves her with no limits and would sacrifice everything for her. His parents, although they had kicked him out of the house when Johnny was 18, now they are helping him clean his record.

He's sexy, good looking and women seem to fall to his feet. He is a big player and he uses sex to forget. Bex is a rising rock star. She is the lead singer of a rock band. She's distant, tough and extremely beautiful. She runs her bitch shield on everybody but Johnny manages to annihilate it and win her over. The sex between them is off the charts hot. There is a realistically raw vibe to it that I found refreshing. Johnny is strong and rough in bed, he likes to dominate and be in control. The sex is quite graphic and this added to the book.

What I didn't like was that Johnny was out screwing any girl that moved, which I found it an exaggeration and pretty hypocritical of him. Also, I didn't like his behavior when Bex decided at some point to leave him. And what about his parents? I understand that they don't have a good relationship with their son, but they do their best to help him. It's like they are the silent heroes in this story and we get almost nothing about them.

I love that this book touched on some real life situations about imprisonment, rape and abuse. Also, I loved Bex because after all the bad things that happened to her she hasn't given up, she is a fighter! Johnny's intense dom attitude is explosive and will leave you speechless. Lot's of kinky sex & a reasonable story. I would recommend it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty HOT!! 2 November 2015
By Nikki ~ Saint and Sinners Books~ - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Johnny is most definitely the bad boy! He truly lives up to his reputation that’s for sure. I was sucked into this book from the first page. I had such a love/hate relationship with Johnny. One minute I wanted to smack him and the next I wanted to hold him and cuddle him. I could fully understand why he was the way he was especially as the book goes on and you get the full story. At first, Bex was the same as all the other girls just a filler to pass the time but soon Johnny realizes that she is one that might change everything.

I loved Bex!! She gave it right back to Johnny so many times. He was so cocky and arrogant but Bex could give him hell right back. She has her own demons she is fighting but she knows that Johnny is different. She fights him tooth and nail but soon her feelings start to change. But how do two broken people who don’t know how to love or let anyone in actually start to open up?

Johnny and Bex both had flaws and they were both trying to fight the attraction for one another. One-minute things were going great and then BAM everything blew up again. Now I did get pissed off a few times throughout the book. There were some things that Johnny did that I thought were unforgiveable. I don’t want to put spoilers in but he should have known better. I did love the end of the book. It was absolutely beautiful and made me love Johnny and Bex a little more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love, hate and Sec. What more do you need? 2 November 2015
By Book Club Gone Wrong - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Starting this review with I love L.L. Collins. She has captured and broken my heart more times then should be allowed. 💜💔💙💗

Sentenced is a wonderful read. Lots of emotion, sexyness, suspense, drama, hate and love. Well worth the one click and would be a great addition to and romance readers collection.

The story was a hard one for me to get pulled in to at 1st, the main character Johney was not one I was attach to right off the bat. His personality was off for me at 1st. He seemed confused in who he was. Which I am sure was intended. However it took me to around 50% in the book to actrully get hooked. Once I did I could not out it down.

I feel in love with Bex and Johney. They where both dealing with so much internal hate and fear and where so garded they fought what their desires. Sex is sex but when emotions start to play a part in it... Well sex becomes something so much more. These to had no idea how to handle it.

I loved watching there journey and seeing them find love, happiness and have there dreams come true. Even if took hell and a lot of crazyness for them to get there.

The only reason this did not get the 5th star was because of how long it took me to get involved in the book. This is a must read. Without a doubt just for me I wish we could have had less Johney confused and more Johney knowing himself.

I was given this for a honest review! Thank you so much. 💛

5.0 out of 5 stars Johnny 3 November 2015
By andrewsheath - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I thought Johnny was a great guy, he had a great attitude well at times other times he was broody but I liked how he was with Bex, "she didn’t try to hide that she was checking me out. “You like what you see? I didn’t give you enough earlier?” Bex isn't afraid to be bossy "her small hand undid my button and zipper and yanked my jeans down to my knees in one movement. “Sit down.” She was bossing me around? I lifted my eyebrow in question. “Do it, Johnny.” I really enjoyed this book I thought Bex and Johnny were perfect for each other.

5.0 out of 5 stars Two broken souls , broken no more 26 January 2016
By Linda - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Oh my heavens what a fantastic book. I haven't read any by this author but I had to purchase the other books after I found out this wasn't the first one. All I can say is this story is phenomenal. L.L. has a way of writing that you have to read to experience it's full effect. I started this book an just couldn't put it down. I love a good story an this one was one I will read again but slower next time. The characters are so different yet the same in many ways.
You will cry, scream, cuss, wanna kick some butt, maybe slap a few people but you will fall in love with Johnny an Bex

Johnny is still dealing with the heartache an death of his girlfriend by the hands of drug lords. His music meant everything to him but he found her dead he couldn't pick up a guitar again .

The only people he truly loved was his sister Julie, her husband Carter an his baby niece. He would die for them as he said they meant the world to him.

Johnny was tall, dark, handsome an a ladies man. He was all alpha. He didn't hook up with ladies from the bar, no he went after the female lead singers in the band's that played their. He was in Denver until his sister got him to move to Florida to be with her an her family. Johnny goes to Florida gets a job as a bartender there an does is player thing again. He uses sex to exercise his demons. Until he meets one very gorgeous lead singer of the band Jaded Regret, Bex short for Bexley. He wants her , determined to get her but she has other plans for him.

They are two lost, broken souls.

L.L. Collins has brought these two complicated people together, I believe to help them they both have demons they are trying to eradicate, demolish but are having difficulty doing. Johnny sees the pain an sadness in her eyes. Sees how strong she tries to be wanting him then pushing him away. She has serious trust issues, secerts, hellaious nightmares. Johnny has his demons , nightmares, pain an secerts , that neither want to share with each other or anyone.

L.L. throws some twist an turns into the mix, quite a few ups an downs that they will have to get over or go their separate ways which will be hard to. Oh yeah there is a monkey wrench that stops them cold but I can't give all away you have to trust me an read the book it's fantastic.

We all know we would like for the love of our life to show up at our door, meet us on a crowded street our eyes meet an fall head over hills in love. Fate happens when you least expect it to. Some people are just meant to be together weither they realize it or not. Some it takes a very serious episode in their lives to see what's right before their eyes before , (like a sledge hammer hitting them) they know he or she is meant to be in their lives that they are the one.

Will Johnny an Bex be able to handle all the stuff they are dealing with an open not only their eyes but their hearts to each other.
