Product Description

She's no stranger to love and loss...

By age eighteen, Alexa Kingsley had lost everyone. Only Joey, the lonely boy next door, remained. He'd clung to Alexa like a lifeline through years of abuse at the hands of his father, and she vowed to protect him as best she could. Alexa thought Joey was the one person who'd always be there--until the day he left her as well. Finally forced to go it alone, Alexa finds this latest loss may hurt worst of all.

He's no stranger to lack of love...

Joseph O'Connor was every bit the villain his father trained him to be, his young heart twisted into something ugly, corrupted. But his father underestimated the girl next door, miscalculated the impact Lexi would have on Joey's life, the spark she ignited that eventually, despite all odds, grew to an inferno of hope. To reclaim her, Joey must first become a man Lexi can be proud of...the kind of man she deserves.

Amidst a shadowy world of guns and drugs, will Joey's ultimate sacrifice--a declaration of love from a man who was never shown any at all--be enough to finally set him free?

*It is recommended to read You Loved Me At My Darkest, book #1 & You Loved Me At My Weakest book #2, before buying this novel.*

OMG!!! As I started this one I asked myself if it would be as good as the frist two, I don't even know why...

At You Loved Me At My Weakest we left Joey and Lexi going their own ways and desperately wanting to know what will happen with them.

Well we find Lexi with Nick trying to have a redo of her life, some way she learns there is the possibility of Joey being dead. So she decides to go after the truth and maybe being once and for all with the man of her life.

Having rid himself of Marco, Joey sets to get rid of Michael, his uncle, his cousins though are tied bound by a secret their father has and they make him wait, making his plans for getting his love once and for all interrupted once more.

There is a lot of conflict and turnmoil in this mafia world enough to set them apart. Will Joey see the error of his decision making process when it comes with his relationship with Lexi, making it impossible to be with her again. Will Lexi make Joseph see the good man he is and help give him that which he craves the most and has never has...a family?

This is a story that will rip at your heart as all others written by Evie Harper, it is amazing and all the events are very well put in chronological order as they connect with the first two books. Love the update we get on all other characters and I am very excited for the new stories that will come out of some characters of this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars never let go... 28 July 2015
By Brie, Cheeky Chicks Blogger - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Evie Harper delivers angst in a way that makes you crave, desire, and yearn for the agony that will run continuously throughout your body from beginning to end!

Alexa knows two things very well and that's love and loss. All her life she has experienced both in the most beautifully aching ways. Losing her parents and brother in a car accident caused by a drunk driver, she moves in with her aunt Ash. Next door the little boy's wretched screams break her heart and she can't stop herself from following those noises that takes her to Joseph. Lexi befriends Joey which leads to a passionate love affair that no man, no amount of blood being shed, or ruthless acts could destroy. No one or nothing, but her Joey when he walks away from her leaving her heartbroken.

Forced to push his mother away and take care of himself at an early age, Joseph is manipulated and abused. He finds comfort in the young girl next door. She offered everything freely Joey's father had forbidden in their home. Lexi became his reason for living, but even after his father's death he couldn't find peace. He wants to become a better man, for Alexa and will eliminate anyone who threatens their future. Walking away to do just that becomes the only way for Joey, even if it means breaking the woman who has always given him love.

Alexa is fiercely loyal in every way, shape, and form. Joseph is possessive, an alpha through and through. Together these two are more than two lovers, they are family. This is a story about the lengths that people will go to for the people they love. Both characters take dangerous risks, putting not only their hearts but their lives on the line. They show us that though love can sometimes be tainted by the ugliness and harsh reality of the world, it can also be saved and will come out more beautiful than ever.

From the first moment, Joey was mentioned in YLMAMD I wanted to know more about the son of Marco O'Connor. In YLMAMW I was intrigued by the relationship between him and Alexa. Their connection was sparks blazing from an open fire and I was engrossed in them, in their love, and their future.

This was the last book in the You Loved Me Series and what an ending it was! Evie Harper brings Lexi and Joseph 's story full circle as well as Jake and Lily's and, Kayne and Emily's. YES, there is happily ever after's after the after's in their books! Not only does she put our hearts back together after a series that has caused me bloodshot eyes, but she sets up her secondary characters perfectly.

This entire series has completely taken over my life the last three days, captivating me completely. You Loved Me At My Ugliest is a heart and soul clenching novel wrapped up in an ugly world where men fight for power. This is a series with characters flawlessly written by an author that I will never let go!

2.0 out of 5 stars Review-You Loved Me At My Ugliest 8 September 2015
By Carra at Making it Happen blog - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
After looking forward to reading Joseph and Alexa’s story, I’m sorry to say that I actually wound up a bit disappointed. Knowing the roles the two of them have played so far in the series, I was intrigued to find out how everything between them would end up. So, here’s the good and the not-so-good for me…

Joseph. No matter his past, and no matter what he goes back to his family to do-he is solidly in my “good” column. He’s been through so much, but still remains strong, protective, and truly dedicated to Alexa—even if she doesn’t realize it. Alexa. For the first half of the book, I’ve got her in that column as well. Her determination and resiliency are inspiring, if a bit ill-advised. But as the rest of the story unfolds, she becomes willing to stay in a “family” that is basically made up of criminals so Joseph can have his own blood family that they can build a life around.

Behavior like that, willingly staying in an illegal environment to participate in that…I cannot relate to or condone it, and I find it disturbing that someone I initially saw as a heroine based on her past actions would readily accept that kind of life. Blood relatives or not, they still have Jake, Lily, Emily and Kayne back home that accept them as family—all friends who have lived through a shared horror and made their way out of that darkness, rebuilding their lives with help from one another, and who would most certainly include Joseph and Alexa in their family as well.

While the first two books of the series dealt with the ordeal the characters lived through with The Collection, everything that came after the destruction of that, and how they dealt with returning to their lives after the atrocity they escaped, in this story we’re taken down a different path. To me, it made it feel like this story really wasn’t a part of the same series…more like it was a setup to the other series by this author (whether it is or not). It didn’t have the same feel as the first two books, and at times the situations seemed dubious and a bit over the top, leaning too much toward a mafia-type story than the disturbing, dark contemporary romance the series started out as.

For me, this was my least favorite book in the series, with the only bright spot being Joseph as well as Nick. I could only muster 2.5 stars for this one. I know I seem to be in the minority, but this just didn't feel quite right for me.

2.0 out of 5 stars because as a reader I wanted her to escape & Jake helping was a great relationship substory 10 November 2015
By Corinam - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
After reading the first two books, I was disapointed with this one. The first book, with Lily, I could understand and sympathize with what she was enduring through the story. I was really drawn in, because as a reader I wanted her to escape & Jake helping was a great relationship substory. With Emily, the reader learns of her anguish and self doubting after what she went through. Reading about Kane's love for her was charming as well. But the end was riveting and I unfortunately wanted it too. And then there is this book. It was primarily from a male character,Joseph's POV, whom you met in book one. There was not a storyline strong enough to keep me guessing. The antagonists were not written with depth. There wasn't anything nafarious keeping them apart. The action was minimal and because we learn of Joseph and Lexi's relationship in book one, not much of the book was swoon worthy. I just didn't feel anything for these two.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love This Story 29 July 2015
By Josie Melendez - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Let me start off by saying I absolutely love this series and the author. Ever since I read book 1 in this series I was a goner. The writing, plot and characters have sucked me in each and every time and this one was no different. Throughout this series we got bits and pieces of Joey and Lexa, their incredible and powerful friendship, their loss and finally their love. I could not wait to get their story.

You Loved Me at My Ugliest is a mesmerizing, touching, deeply moving trip into redemption and recovery. Just like in her other books, Ms. Harper won my heart delivering a message that true love can accomplish anything. Joey and Lexa’s love will be tested in their saddest, most fragile and unpleasant moments.

You Loved Me at My Ugliest is about a broken love. One the deals with heartbreak, family loyalty, friendship and a solid love between two people. This love story is not perfect and if you followed this series you know that Joey’s family, The O’Connor’s, deal with human and drug trafficking but this fascinating story deals with true unconditional love. One that will stand the test of time, distance and pain regardless of all the ugly it leaves behind.

Joey’s life as a child was a very ugly and violate one. He and his mother were constantly beaten at the hands of the very man who was supposed to protect them, his father.

He and his mother lived in hell every day of their lives for years. They both experienced emotional and extreme physical abuse, but Joey would suffer the most to make sure his mother was not hurt. Through his years of torture, the brightest moments of his life came from his 10 year old neighbor, Alexa. Their time together gave him hope and was a form of escape. What followed over years turned into love between the two. Lexa loved him even during his worse times.

Alexa did not live the same life as Joey, but she lost both her parents at a young age and had to go live with her aunt. But with her Aunt she had love, a home and found a friendship with the boy, Joey next door. At a young age, we’re able to see the bond and connection they had. When she would hear Joey and his mother screaming in agony she would always try to be there for her friend. There was nothing Lexa wouldn’t do for Joey. I loved that their love and solid connection between them could not be broken. When Joey was forced to work in the family business she followed him to Columbia to be there for him, even after she was hurt. When Joey decides he needs to go Mexico to put an end to the family business, Lexa has had enough coming in last, and Joey leaves a broken Alexa behind.

This couple really played on my emotions. They both love each other, but Joey’s ugly past refuses to let them be happy. Lexa will go the ends of the earth for Joey even when he keeps putting her last and all Joey wants to do is keep her safe from his demons. Lexa is hurt, annoyed and feels betrayed and wants to move on. Even when her heart only sees Joey. Joey is a man dead set on revenge, hate and anger but when he sees proof that Alexa might have really moved on, jealously, rage and regret become his focus.

You Loved Me at My Ugliest is about a love that is not perfect, it is ugly but with real love, determination and commitment LOVE WILL COME OUT ON TOP. A rivalry is brewing and Lexa might be the next casualty? How much is Joey willing to risk for revenge? Will Lexa be too late to save Joey? Lives will be lost, secrets will be revealed and a new danger is in the horizon

5.0 out of 5 stars Five stars for an amazing book 28 July 2015
By Sammy Baker - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I had been looking forward to this book for so long and was so thrilled when I finally got my hands on it. The third installment in the ‘You Loved Me’ series, this book featured Joseph and Alexa, who were introduced to us in the first book. I was always so intrigued about their story, and as usual, Evie Harper did not disappoint with this one. The readers are given a look at the two of them when they met as small children, which I loved. Going back and forth between the past and the present allowed us to fully understand their history and the unbreakable bond between them. My heart broke for both Joey and Alexa so many times while reading. Both of them had to deal with heartache at such a young age. Throughout it all, they had each other, which was so beautiful to witness. Their love was unlike any other, because even after all that they endured, their devotion to each other was unwavering. I absolutely loved Joey and how possessive he was over Lexi. The way he would go crazy whenever any male came near her was so hot. He didn’t see anyone else but her. Evie is so good at writing male characters who are so incredibly infatuated with their women that they would move heaven and earth for them. As for Lexi, she was so strong and such an amazing person. She was the light that Joseph needed during his dark times, and because of his family and who he was, there were quite a few dark times. There were more trials and tribulations for the couple in this story, but thankfully they were able to overcome them. I cried at several points during this story, and I do not usually get emotional while reading. This story was so heartfelt, and so emotional, that I couldn’t help but tear up for this couple. Job well done to Evie Harper for an incredible story and an epic series. This will by far be one of my favorite series ever read.
