But each of them seems to have some inner turmoil wi A Short Recap: But each of them seems to have some inner turmoil with regards to their feelings on the split. Zara is a little broken up But she moves on, marrying a great guy and settling in to live her life. Graham's feelings are a bit more complicated. He continues with his lifestyle, but deep down, he knows he'll always regret the one who got away. Only now, Zara is in a bad place emotionally and physically.
Things have just flat out gone wrong for her at every turn. And when Graham stops back in town, he sees what's happening.
And he pulls the KA alpha guy takeover. And Zara's first and only real, passionate lover is there, in her face, doing the one thing no one ever has: Now, they have to figure out whether or not Graham can stick around She's a really practical woman, and I can appreciate that. I tend to never dislike KA's heroines, but it deserves repeating. I really liked Zara as a person. I love the fact that after all these years of random places and women and lives he's lived, Graham always felt a pull to come back to Zara.
That's romance My Graham and Zara: I loved this book. For me, this was just the kind of book that made me fall in love with this author. She writes romance for women She writes sweet and flowery with more than a touch of badass.. She writes my kind of hero, and Graham lived up to the norm.
I'd say he's about on the level of Max. He's a badass, he's an alpha, but he's not quite so over the top as Tate or Dax Lahn. Also, just like with other KA books, this book comes with a soundtrack I bought this song after reading about it, and I've listened to it now probably fifty times. Each time, it brings me back to this book. Only KA has ever done that for me I have an actual Kristen Ashley playlist on my phone Here is the link if you want to listen: If I had the power, I'd seriously delete every time that name was mentioned and replace it with his real name, Graham.
In fact, I'd rather she call him "Gra" or "douchebag" I don't even care if they were forced to eat eggs and Gra for breakfast. It's the most ridiculous name for a hero I've ever come across I suppose it's because the publisher limits her words, but I had gotten used to Kristen Ashley's rambling, wordy style of writing. In fact, that's one of the things she was known for, and what made her such a popular writer So I missed that here. So for me, KA still has it. This is my first book that I've read by her since she stopped self pubbing, and so far so good.
Although I don't know why a publisher would want to mess with a good thing I just hope she can keep on keepin' on. Retain her unique, indescribable and much imitated but never recreated style. Zara has to call it quits because she is getting married.
Ham lets her walk away from him that day. Yes, we have a Ham and Cookie Three years later Zara is now divorced, papers signed. She sees Ham on the news. He was attacked by a serial killer from the first book in this series and calls him and they get reconnected. He comes back to see that Zara's life is tougher than it was bef 3.
He comes back to see that Zara's life is tougher than it was before. Her financial situation isn't great and he has decided to take it upon himself to take care of her. Zara is definitely hesitant as Ham has always been a "free spirit.
Ham decides he needs to prove to her that he is in this for the long haul. It definitely felt anticlimactic. I love KA's longer books so I hope she goes back to these. The last few have been shorter and disappointing to me. Check out our hilarious commentary for this epic Buddy Read! ARC provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. View all 50 comments. Zara has shit for a family in this world, but when it comes to the friends she's got in Gnaw Bone, she's blessed.
One such constant over the years has been Graham Reece, aka "Ham. He's not the commitment kind, doesn't like to settle too long, but when Zara needs him, he's there. This, however, isn't the life Zara wants. She 3. She wants to settle down, have a family, so it comes down to choices Walking away was the hardest thing either of them did but Ham would do it Is she settling? Long term, is a life without Ham a happy one? Why can't Ham just stay put, grow roots, settle down?
What will it take? This book is textbook romance to me. A bit of angsty push and pull, two characters that clearly love one another but fail miserably in admitting it What can I say that anyone whose read a Kristen Ashley book doesn't already know?
She's the queen of badass. She is, quite frankly, my literary badass hero! Is that a title? It should be. I LOVE her voice. So many authors try to mimic it, failing miserably.
Reading a KA book is much like coming home Is this my favorite book of her's? I was finding myself a tad bored with the general storyline in parts, being a bit anticlimactic.
I was hovering between stars throughout but in all KA awesomeness, she kicks my ass with the Epilogue. It's all wrapped up but most importantly, it always seems to tug at your heart strings and just makes me feel all warm inside. What a sap, I know. Loved it. Ham, what can I say? The guy is a bartender, runs five miles a day on one cup of coffee, exceeds 6 feet tall and manages to call Zara "Cookie" without losing one tiny bit of his Man Card.
Loved him. A man stung not one, but several times by women in the worst kind of way but still would walk through fire for Cookie. Fan-girling here! And this quote just made me chuckle But I still loved it! Arc received via NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. View all 42 comments. Zara Cinders and Ham Reece have a history. The last time he checked in, though, Zara had moved on and gotten engaged.
Now, Za Note: Now, Zara has hit some hard times, losing her business, her marriage and her home. His communication skills left a lot to be desired and he was a bit ham-handed pun intended in his dealings with Zara. Thank goodness we got his points of view so we could see he was better than the way he showed up. Overall, I liked him but I had a tough time with him. I also liked her but thought she let him off too easily at times.

But, my headphones were still glued to my head despite my issues. There were a lot of hilarious moments, too, lightening up a story with some very serious issues. Still a fan of the series and the narrator. Nov 07, Wendy'sThoughts rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Kristen Ashley Fans, Romance. He had a very minor but meaningful role causing great interest about who this man was and if we would ever get to know him better.
This man was someone who had lived a life as best he could from all of the lessons he had learned. As a child he learned of love and caring by watching his father and mother together. He knew by his father's actions what a real man did for his woman and child.
He decided that would be his goal, to give love, take care of his family when he had one and everything would fall into place. Ham thought he was on that path with his high school sweetheart, Rachel. He devoted himself to her; made sure he told her he loved her when he left in the morning and when he came home at night.
Told her all his wishes and dreams. Told her of his goal to live that life of children and family and Rachel said yes to it all. She would tell him she loved him with words but when it came to showing him, she failed as all of her actions proved differently.
Ham tried a few times after his failure with Rachel to be open with his love but he kept learning the same awful lesson over and over again: People may tell you things but the real truth is shown by what they do.
So he learned not to trust. Learned to hold himself a little separate and learned he was better moving from place to place - woman to woman. One of the women Ham connected with was Zara. She was younger than him by a decade, yet had a life that caused her to be an old soul.
She was able to confront the ugly of life; take it on and handle it. Her path had not been an easy one. She and her sister suffered from a father's abuse and a mother's blindness to it. One sister couldn't out run the demons although she had tried.
The other sister, Zara, had the granite in her not to break; to somehow find the beauty and light and persevere, no matter what was thrown at her. This quality of light and beauty and all that was good was what drew Ham to her. Yet, because he had learned all of his lessons Zara also knew to let him go Just knew if one or the other needed something, they would be there. And it continued this way for years Ham in and out of Zara's life; until that fateful moment when everything came together for Ham.
When he realized all this time it was Zara And Zara gave him that opening when she reached out to see if he was ok after the attack on his life. This is where we start She has lost her business, custom home, dissolved her marriage and is really on the brink.
Jagged (Colorado Mountain) by Kristen Ashley
The two of them talk and the next thing Zara knows, Ham is at her door taking in the state of her affairs. It pains him she is in a house with nothing in it except a sofa which would look at home by the side of the road; a lamp and broken coffee table, cousins of the sofa and a box TV that had seen better days. Ham is concerned; Zara gets her back up embarrassed and nasty things are said.
Fast forward a few months and Ham does the unthinkable; he takes a job with the decision to plant himself. He has decided Zara is the one. He is going to help her get on her feet; he also wants her to see they are going to be together. It is a process as both are stubborn and both have baggage. This is a KA story and with that being said, she delivered full blast with Ham. This was a man who you would want to watch your back.
He didn't mince words and he showed by his actions who he was at all times. Now was he a Poet Laureate; no. He spoke with run on sentences and phrases. But I would take those in a heartbeat because he was true He was sure in what he believed and when ready- would tell you. And he also was an amazingly sexy guy This book had many lessons of love and life. The most important one for me was how clear it was Ham loved Zara. It took her a while to really get her man's way This was an everyday interpersonal tale of dealing with how we are raised impacts us and what we do with those challenges.

Sep 20, D. Individually, I like some of her other books, but not the whole kit and caboodle. I was so excited to get my advance copy of Jagged. I pushed everything aside just so I could read it as soon as it hit my grubby little fingers. Instead, I got a story I was able to put down at will.
And if some other writer had written this story, I would hazard to say it would have been a solid read for me. But I expect certain things from a KA book. One is length. And this book is about half of her other books in this series in word count and pages. Right there, that was a HUGE let down. And the drama was missing.
It was run of the mill kinda drama. I liked Zara. I liked Reece. Not like say Joe and Vi. Or Tate and Laurie. It just felt like they were just at the right place at the right time to get together. Maybe my expectations were too high.
But something was missing for me in this book. From another author, I would be gushing cause this was a good book with decent characters and well-plotted story. But from KA? Not so much.

It is like unwrapping and revealing the best present of all. A former lover of Feb Owens, he survived a vicious and brutal attack at the hands of a crazed axe murderer. Their relationship spans over a nine-year period, during which Ham has walked away from her many times. With each departure, Zara was left gutted and longing for his love. Knowing Ham is not the kind of man to settle down, it is Zara who finally walked away from the love of her life to marry another man. She is a strong female character — surviving a horrible childhood, an abusive father, a failed business, and a train wreck of a marriage, and is now destitute.
Wow, what more can a girl live through? But Zara is strong willed and perseveres. I admired Zara; she showed her true inner strength at her weakest moments. When Ham decides to find permanency, he sets his sites on Gnaw Bone and Zara, to claim her as his woman, heal her broken spirit, and prove that he is a changed man. Having a new outlook, Ham sets forth on a new life plan and Zara becomes the center of his world.
Ham is not chasing Zara because of her sassy tendencies, stubbornness or complex personality. Someone who is easy to get along with, rolls with the punches, and easy to love. What Ham comes to learn is anything in life worth having does not come easily. Assuring Zara that he has changed his ways and she is in his heart is easier said than done. For over two decades, Ham has wandered, so the abrupt turn has not convinced her that he will stay.
There is always the fear of Ham leaving, which she will not survive. Zara needs to know that Ham's feelings for her are unconditional and that she is not a consolation prize for losing Feb.
Ham is not one to verbalize his amorous feelings. Saying you love someone is easy, because words can be empty. Zara has to learn to read what he does to see how much he truly loves her. And boy, does Ham adore her.
I love how the characters from prior books in the series become involved in the plot. Max and Nina make a comical appearance. The love scenes where HOT and Ham was a sexy beast.
I enjoyed witnessing their relationship evolved. And the best part…. Kristen Ashley is a masterful writer whose words touch my heart and ending her stories rips out a piece of my soul. Thank you for sharing another wonderful love story. View all 16 comments. I absolutely loooooved the audio book version of Jagged so much so that I upped my initial rating, just goes to show the power of great narration!

When she tells Reece, she's secretly hoping that he'll somehow, someway find it in himself to not let her go, to keep her, and choose a future with her.
Instead he wishes her the best and walks away Reece Gets a rude awakening when he is almost killed by a deranged man in For You and Zara with her marriage over, falls on hard times. When Reece hears of Zara's divorce and troubles he makes a decision to finally put down some roots, now all he has to do is win Zara back. I really liked Zara, she has a strength that I admire, especially considering her upbringing, she is definitely a favorite KA heroine.
I had issues with Reece in the beginning as I do with a lot of KA's hero's but naturally he redeems himself and becomes the man Zara needs, and more importantly the man she deserves!! Zara and Reece face some challenges, it's a bumpy road to their HEA but they thankfully get it.
As always we get KA's amazing signature epilogue!!! Zara choose this song as "Their Song", it's absolutely perfect and the effect it has on Reece is touching. View all 14 comments. Sep 17, Choko rated it liked it Shelves: The same Nina who stole our hearts with her British accent and made Max fall madly in love with her in the first book of the series.
And it is a good thing Zara listened to her: I liked many parts, but nothing moved me to either love it or hate it The main characters were cool, but did not sizzle together, the way the last KA couple just lit the pages on fire with their passion I just couldn't download that they were madly in love.
They were good to and with each other, they cared for each other, but it felt like they were both settling for best available left And that coolness was even more highlighted when Zara met her sister's kid and I could finally see her personality glow out of her. And he was a mish-mash of contradictions, who had to do a lot of explanations for his words and actions in order to sometimes makes sense Overall, this was a pleasant contemporary romance, with a great kid in it as always, and the usual Happily Ever After: Wish you Happy Reading and only good books in your future!

Can you trust a man that doesn't commit, to commit? All the men sound. KA is the Queen of Epilogues! They both said some pretty mean things to each other. And I sure would not like to come between any of these women and their friends! I thought they were doing fine! So, my main complaint is that the men in these books all sound alike but that is a small issue really. I loved all the emotional drama in this story and it really took me by surprise.
I hope that KA continues to change things up. Can't wait to read about Deck! Favorite quotes: Mein herr bosses me around. And Mr. Reece is like a life professor, smart and generous with his wisdom.

I enjoyed reading this book. This is my first book in the Colorado Mountain series. Even though I started with this book in the series I didn't feel lost. KA writes her novels in such a way that each book could be read as a standalone.
Reece wasn't into commitment and Zara watched him walk in and out of her life over the years. Some major life situations happen t No cone of shame for me. Some major life situations happen that make Reece realize what he is searching for in his life. Working on gaining Zara's trust becomes his sole purpose. Jagged wasn't as long as KA's other books but it had a lot going on to keep the readers interest. I'm going to give this one a try! Hopefully,this book will be a winner for me and I won't have to wear the cone of shame.

But I have to say this Someone has been watering down my drinks lately and I don't like it. What happened to the extended Epilogues of days past? Those pages and pages yummy goodness? This is a bit short Regardless of my issues, this story is good thus the 4 rating - Forever a KA Fan! Arc provided by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. View all 18 comments.
For me, pretty much all of her books start as a 4 star and can only go down if there's something seriously wrong. This was not the case here. I was expecting more story and then all of a sudden Other than the early ending, there's nothing really new to report here. Badass lovable alpha hero Strong, relatable leading lady A cast of kooky side characters that you instantly fall in love with Some were new, some were old, but all were loved.
Well rounded, reel you in story telling Add ingredients, simmer on medium and enjoy every spoonful. Cracking open a Kristen Ashley book is like a nice cup of hot chocolate after being outside in the cold. You get that warm and fuzzy feeling because you know you're about to devour some delicious story telling, topped with a huge heart warming marshmallow epilogue. You'll close the book the same every time. He's what he does.

Zara Cinders is a strong heroine that has always had to struggle through life to get to the good stuff Until the day she met Graham Reece, a man eleven years her senior, who would help her see the light at the end of the tunnel. But the only problem was, he didn't hang around to see her through it. Oh, he came back, and often, but just didn't have it in him to stay.
And she knew it. So she had to let him go. And Reece knew he had a good thing in Zara, but he also knew he didn't have it in himself to stay. However something kept compelling him to come back. It wasn't until an axe broke the camel's back that he finally found what he was looking for Loved the book, Love Gnaw Bone and all of its crazy residents!!!

I really do. She is my favorite go to author. I usually have to read a book by her to get out of a funk. I can read her books over and over and over and still fall in line with the emotions to mess with my heart. With that being said I was highly disappointed with Reece's book. I had expected so much more than what I got. He didn't seem like the same Reece we met briefly in For You.
I felt like I read a KA book yet at the same time I didn't. As someone else stated: It was like reading a KA lite. There were elements of her writing but her flare was just not fully there. Where was the long book I was expecting? Where was the long fountain full of information and long epilogue? Where was the super awesome drama? Where was the loads of detailing?
This story fell flat in so many departments, it made me feel cheated on a great story for Reece. I really wanted him to have a super awesome story when he felt like Feb Owens got away from him.
Speaking of Feb Owens, I honestly feel like if she hadn't left him for the love of her life, she and Reece would have ended up together. I felt like Zara wasn't truly the love of his life as the story tries to make you believe. In For You I felt with the short connection we got, that he and Feb really had something good and long lasting if she had allowed it to go that route.
Never once did I feel that Reece and Zara had that honest true connection.
Even when he briefly talks to Feb on the phone in Jagged, he seemed like he missed her. She has such a big loyal fan base that she didn't need to recap the other stories in this book. That was such a filler waste for me. And what was the deal with everyone talking in clipped tones or whispering a lot?
It seemed like so many people shared one main alpha tone voice. I also missed having more points of view from Reece. Reece didn't feel like the full typical KA alpha male for me and I didn't like that Zara seemed to be like the alpha male of the story, especially with how she talked. When the first fight scene happened I was like: WHY would she just pick that fight? I was actually siding with Reece on that one. It made no sense that she throws sass at him and picked a fight.
I also had a hard time with what was being said. I thought maybe I was just not in the right frame of mind and had to re-read what was being said quite a few times.
But honestly? I just don't think some of the sentences connected together correctly. The nicknames drove me nuts. I felt like I was reading about two pieces of food that were human.
And why is Reece "Ham"? I mean, is that from his first name of Graham? Where was the full on drama and full on story? I felt like there really wasn't much of a story. Where was the awesome love story? Why was the very end of the epilogue so weird? As for Greg, boy did I feel sorry for that poor guy. I just wanted to reach in to the book and wrap my arms around him and hug him tight. I felt that Greg had more of a love connection with Zara then Reece did.
I would say he is the only one I honestly felt and believed any of the emotions that came from him. When he would look at Zara or say certain things I did love that we saw the Rooster make its usual mark in the book. We definitely were not let down when drama happened there and with Nina and Max being there at the time.
Max made me laugh and Nina I did like seeing members of the other books make an appearance. I liked finding out more info in to Jeff and Mindy's life, as well as what Becca was up to. I should also mention that any part when Zander was around, was a good part of the story too. Sorry to be a Negative Nancy on this one but I felt that my excitement for Reece was severely doused by cold water.
It was missing so much and it felt like it was cut short. The epilogue was definitely cut short and maybe rushed? I don't know. Ends Nov 23 25 eBook giveaway - Jagged by K. Ashley - open worldwide!
