Product Description

BEAU has never known a good life, only the torment that lives inside his head every day. The only way to block out the darkness that shrouds him is through the rhythmic beat of his drums. Knowing what happens when he opens up to anyone, Beau buries his pain deep inside, keeping it all to himself.

APRIL has lived a life of wealth and privilege, full of love and support. Her only insight into what it's like to have a rough life is through her work with foster children. When she meets Beau, it starts as a challenge to get through to him but quickly turns into much more than either of them bargained for.

TOGETHER, they are mismatched, ill-fated, and COMBUSTIBLE. But when their connection is challenged by the collision of past, present, and future,
will they be snared by love...or circumstances?

This book destroyed me.. IN A GOOD WAY..
I have never come across a book that was so heartfelt, held so much emotion, ripped my heart out in absolute pain for the MC but held such a strong, solid, meaningful and well researched storyline.

LL Collins delivers us Snared a book that touches on mental illness, the voices in your head, but reading it, was like living it, you were right there with Beau, you felt EVERY single one of those moments with him, it tore me apart.

But then she gave us April, where did she come from, people like her in the world actually exist? Not only was she beautiful, strong minded, she was determined, she loved, she loved with everything she has.

Beau and Aprils story is touching, its moving, it won’t leave you without tears, it will leave you a sobbing mess, not because of heartache, but because it was one hell of a well-rounded story, A story of Love, support, depression, family.

LL Collins has truly outdone herself.

I read the first few pages and was immediately enraptured.

My heart fell with the sickening mistreatment of Beau – a man who has lived a hard life and is tormented by the cruelties of a dark past that refuses to fade away with the passing of time.

From the outside looking in he’s a rocker – a drummer with tattoos from the infamous band Jaded Regret.

But from the inside – L.L Collins shows us what it’s like to deal with a mental illness – the constant doubts – the self-hatred – the lack of self-confidence.

Beau believes himself to be a monster – undeserving of love or happiness.

The drums help him to calm his mind and stay sane warding off the threat of mental episodes.

But that’s until April comes along, a social worker that is kind and patient. She sees past Beau’s walls and sees a man who is worth loving and a man in need of saving.

At 57% everything ceased to exist as nothing but the book. Shock permeated my senses as I couldn’t help but read on!

At 62 % I was breathless with the crippling reveal … and the drama from thereon just kept on coming!

This ebook was tormenting, it was heart breaking and it’s a definite MUST-READ!!

5.0 out of 5 stars An emotional unexpected story 12 March 2016
By JreaderLee - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Once again LL Collins has another 5+ star read on her hands. Snared may be listed as a stand alone but this reader recommends that you read book 1 in the Jaded Regret series Sentenced first so as to not have spoilers if you decided to read the first book and fully understand the relationship of the band. We first met Jaded Regret in Sentenced and what I thought about Beau was totally not what we got. Tissues are necessary as the author's warning states, this book contains issues that may be difficult for some readers.

Beau's childhood was spent living in the Foster care system which wasn't easy. He finds that playing the drums help quiet the demons in his life and give him a sense of freedom from the pain. Because of the way he grew up he doesn’t believe in happily ever after or that he deserves to be loved.

April has lived a privileged life with parents who love her. She doesn’t know what it fells like to live a life without caring parents, like the children in the welfare system. Once she meets Beau there is some type of connection but how can she get him to open up to her when he is so quiet.

Will his demons keep them apart or will the connection they have be enough to get him to open up?

Right from the start I was not able to put this book down. Beau is not what I was expecting and I was shocked over a few things, especially his childhood. We already knew he was in a foster home but what transpired to why was not expected. The author did an awesome job in keeping the storyline real. Yes, there were a couple parts that were predictable but the way the author delivered it had me in tears and even though I knew it was coming I couldn’t prevent the emotions from happening. I was also able to relate to the emotions that were consuming April several times in the book. The interaction of the band, Beau’s only family, added to the emotional ride this book took you on. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series regardless if is is Natalie or Tanner's story, as they both have one. I will be recommending this book and series as it is a must read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A light at the end of a tunnel.....with a beautiful twist! 23 March 2016
By Jenny Rapp - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Author’s Disclaimer - This book contains topics that could be difficult for some readers, including but not limited to mental illness, mental abuse, and suicide. Please take these sensitive topics into consideration before choosing to read this book.

With that out of the way, this book touched my soul and has affected me profoundly. The content is so sensitive but the author delivers the story with class and has you reaching for more. If I could, I would give this book 10 stars!!!!

One of my favorite lines: “If all you do is think about the past, you’re never going to be able to write your future.”

Beau Anderson witnessed a traumatic event when he was a child, and endured horrible mental abuse at the hands of his mother. Eventually he was placed in foster care - even though he no longer is in the foster care system, he has a hard time keeping those experiences and his past from seeping into his present. There are very few people he lets in and does not trust easily; his sister and his band family are the only people he is comfortable around.

April Knight grew up with loving parents, has a huge heart, and is willing to open it up to all. Because of her mother’s past, she is drawn to the foster care field for her career and is trying to make a difference in the lives of children in the foster care system.

April is drawn to Beau and would like to help him escape his past; but will Beau be able to listen to his heart and not his head, and allow April in.

I love the characters in this series; I was able to connect with each one and feel their emotions. It was so fabulous to see Johnnie and Bex in this book and seeing how their lives are coming along.

Working in the foster care field myself, I have seen the breakdown of the system and how it affects the children who are brought up in the system. The author did a wonderful job highlighting these issues, and bringing to light the serious consequences of failing our children within the system. If this book touches even just one person to make a stand, it could make all the difference in the world.

Thank you LL Collins for this beautiful story.

5.0 out of 5 stars What an amazing story!!! 16 March 2016
By Kiz - Published on

I think Beau is my favorite now!

It took me couple days to get my head together for this review without giving alot away. All I can say is that LL Collins knocked it out of the park with this one!!

We meet Beau, who is the drummer for Jaded Regret. He's quiet compared to the rest of the band. ( love Johnny by the way). We learn early in the book the events that forever changed his life. My heart broke for him and his sister Natalie, especially him, since he was only 5 years old. He never fully recovered and his mother was one of the worse parents I have ever seen.

April was amazing! What strong female lead. She and Beau meet they are drawn to eachother. Of course, he thinks he isn't good enough and tries to keep his distance. April can see that there is something about Beau that she can't resist. It's like she can see him and understand his pain. She was amazing with him. Not to give away the story, but there was a part that my heart was literally ripped to shreds for what the both of them experienced. The fact that she didn't give up on him shows the kind of person she is. We also met a little boy, Robbie.<3 You'll understand as you get into the story.

I can rave about this book from beginning to end, but you need to experience it for yourself. Yes there are some situations and topics you have be comfortable with and I felt the author did an amazing job with it. This is without a doubt one of my top reads this year!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Snared stole my heart! 18 March 2016
By Melonie - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
While I loved Sentenced ( book 1 in this series) Snared stole my heart! Beau completely captured my heart and took it hostage. Beau is the quiet drummer for Jaded Regret. Beau doesn't know how to let people in. With his past it is not hard to see why. Even his sister Nat and his best friend Bex have trouble getting him to open up to them and know almost everything. MIx his past with depression and it is almost like he doesn't stand chance. I found myself relating more and more to him. Then out of nowhere enters April. When Jaded Regret agrees to a charity event Beau had no idea that his life would turn upside down. When past and future collide sometimes people break before they can heal. April never expected to fall for Beau but she felt a conenction from the very beginning. The only downside....You can't help someone who doesn't want to help themselves. As someone who has battled depression and other hard topics that are discussed in this book I must say it touched me on so many levels. L.L. Collins did an amazing job at giving these hard to talk about topics a voice and she did so with class. I highly recommend reading this book but I do so with extending a tissue warning becuase I am not afraid to admit that I ugly cried like i never have before!

By Southern Charm - Published on

Beau a boy who witnessed the worst thing imaginable. A mother who wished you never existed and belittled you most your life. Then to realize you have this illness you can't control. Your mother throws you into a Mental Institution and dumps your sis with a neighbor. To come to find out you been abandoned and into foster care. No one wants a kid with issues. You learn your on your own but he had Nat his sis who never gave up on him. The meet Bex in one of the foster homes. She and Beau came up with starting a band little did they know the be big one day. When the voices get to loud and reality is blurred you cut yourself off and live a controlled life. It's safe it's easy to have it change so fast. Being in a band The drums his drug of choice calmed the voices. JadedRegret had been contacted to a job for a fundraiser. That's when Beau First meets April She was different not a groupie but wanted to know Beau the man not just The drummer. That was the first stir of voices getting louder. Beau couldn't figure out what she wanted with him. When you feel you don't deserve happiness or no what a relationship is. The more she broke down some walls the more His safe box was crumbling. April Knight a Social Worker helping kids find homes and trying to mentally not get s. ucked down from so many horror stories or kids needing homes or room in foster homes. She convinced the band to help get the word out on adoption and meet kids at a home and give a little interview. That when Beau's life would charge forever.
