Welcome to the final day of the Pretty Ugly release blitz from Enticing Journey Book Promotions. Today I have a review for you which I hope you will enjoy! This is the second book in Jane Anthony’s Addicted Hearts series. If you missed my review of book one on Tuesday then follow the link below to read it now!
Book One: Pretty Reckless
We were meant to live happily ever after,
a promise I sealed with a band of gold.
Our road was rocky and rough, yet worth every mark etched on my heart.
Kat is my addiction.
I’m her salvation.
Two hearts joined in pain.
Yet beneath the surface of our intended bliss, a tsunami was brewing.
An unstoppable force driven by deceit.
Now I’m back in New York — the city that stole my soul — caught between the future that awaits and a past that won’t let go.
I promised us a happy ending
After the turmoil of Pretty Reckless I thought I was prepared for Pretty Ugly but I didn’t have a clue what I was letting myself in for reading this book. Kat and Chase are seemingly living in bliss but they both are still haunted by the demons of their addiction and it really is only a matter of time until one of them bends too far and breaks.
I guess anybody reading this who hasn’t suffered with addiction would find it hard to understand that pull, how easy it can be to fall back down the rabbit hole and lose everything you’ve gained over the years of sobriety. But as someone living it I can tell you that every single day is a tremendous battle and sometimes things happen that rock that boat a little too much.
Seeing what happens in this book rocked my world as I read, tears pouring down my face as I watched Kat and Chase try to find their way through it back to each other. These two people are so real either of them could be me and I felt me heart ripping apart over and over through this book. Their love for each other just not being enough.
Pretty Ugly is dark, and gritty. Full of heart and soul. And it is well, ugly. But it is full of hope and love as well. I love these characters and I know that anybody who picks this series up is going to fall in love with them as much as I have.
Sending a huge thanks to Jane Anthony and Enticing Journey Book Promotions for the eARC so that I could read and honestly review this novel.

Writing what vibrates within her soul — romance, rock, representing Jersey moms in mini vans righteously — Jane Anthony gives a bit of herself and her quirky knowledge in each novel by incorporating her love of music through a book-specific playlist and adding things uniquely Jane to the plot, like her crazy family or ’80s trivia. When she’s not busy being mom or Mrs. A, you’ll find her at a concert, lost in a book, or on Facebook with her adoring readers.
