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?

Beau is definitely not the bad boy rocker that sleeps around and does not think he is gods gift to women. He is a broken soul that believes he is not worth saving. Then along comes April ... All she wants to do is repair and help broken souls. This is not your regular love story where the guy is an arrogant a**hat and the girl is the damsel in distress. Beau is a tourchered soul and April is a strong and resourceful woman. I really enjoyed this book ... Now on to the 3rd book in the series!

April and Beau. This book is different it talks about mental illness, depression, suicide and abusive parents. Beau is a wonderful person who has gone through a lot of mental abuse from his mom. He ends up in a foster home with his sister Nathalie. Beau' s way of coping with life is his love of music. He and his sister Bex start a band called Jaded Regret. When Beau meets April at a charity event that his band is performing it's love at first sight. April is a wonderful person who is there for Beau during the good and the bad. There is a lot of emotions up and down. Happy and sad times I enjoyed getting to know the characters in this book and hope that Nathalie has her own happy ending

Every so often, I come across a story that leaves a permanent mark. Not necessarily because it's the sexiest, darkest or the most romantic but because it touched me in a way some haven't. There are so many great authors out there with amazing stories that are just waiting to be read. I've read a lot of books over the years but LL Collins is one I've missed. When I read the blurb of this book, I thought to myself this is one I would love to read. Well let me tell you that this is one of my all time favourites. This is a memorable journey that I will likely never forget. It deserves so much more than 5 stars.

ARC of Snared by LL Collins provided in exchange for an honest and spoiler free review.

I just can't believe that I've missed out on this amazing author who as managed to make me feel all sorts of emotions. If a story can make me cry ugly gut wrenching tears they deserve all the stars in the sky. From the very first page read to the very last one, it was a whirlwind of strong emotions. The words attached themselves to my heart, mind, body and soul. I feel emotional even while writing this review.

If you think of reading a story about a partying rock star well this isn't your book to read. Yes, he's a rock star, but one who battles a mental illness on a daily basis. As a long time nurse myself, I can assure you what this author wrote is all too real. I guess that's what made this book so amazing, the reality of the situations and the characters. Flawed, broken characters that made me feel so much.

It's not just a love story between two people but a getting support from your loved ones. Beau is a drummer who has had to live all his life with a mental illness coupled with a traumatic childhood.

I have to admit I love this series and this writer. To see how damaged people can and do overcome the stigma of mental illness and build a healthy and love filled life is my favourite kind of HEA. Thank You

HASH(0xa1ea1354) out of 5 stars 4 stars March 11 2016
By Nmmomof4 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Overall Opinion: This book tacked some heavy and tough subjects -- mental health and foster care. It wasn't the type of romance that gives you a toothache, but it was sweet in its own way. I rooted for this couple, and I felt that they had a good connection. Plus! We got a shy non-manwhore rock star! He had only been with one woman close to 10 years prior to the story! He was intimidated by the h's beauty, and I found that really cute and endearing. Overall, I liked the story.

**See goodreads.com/NMmomof4 for my full review with spoilers**

Brief Summary of the Storyline: This is April and Beau's story. Beau is a drummer for a famous rock band that has been suffering from severe depression since he was a child. The band gets asked to play at a benefit, and this is where he meets April. He has minimal experience with women and wants to remain closed off due to his mental health status, but there is something about April that he cannot forget. April is instantly intruiged by him and tries to get him to open up to her. They dance around things for a little bit, but eventually start a relationship and fall in love. There are some big issues with Beau's mental health and life in general, but they work through them and get their HEA.

POV: This alternated between April and Beau's POV.

Overall Pace of Story: Good. I never skimmed, and I felt like it flowed well.

Instalove: No. It was quick, but I felt like it took a sufficient amount of time for those stronger feelings to develop.

H rating: 4 stars. Beau. He was pretty damaged, but he had a good heart and really wanted love in his life.

h rating: 5 stars. April. She was a pretty perfect woman. She loved the H unconditionally, and stepped up to the plate when other things got thrown at her.

Sadness level: Low/moderate. This covers some heavy subjects, but I never needed tissues.

Heat level: Moderate. They had some good chemistry and hot scenes.

Descriptive sex: Yes.

Safe sex: Yes. Mentions of std status and birth control

OW/OM drama: Not at all!

Sex scene with OW or OM: Yes

Cheating: No

Possible Triggers: Yes

Closure: This had some good closure with a cute epilogue and a HEA ending.

How I got it: It was part of my kindle unlimited subscription.

HASH(0xa1ea1330) out of 5 stars An emotional unexpected story March 11 2016
By JreaderLee - Published on Amazon.com
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.

HASH(0xa1ea1438) out of 5 stars ✯✯5 Tormented Stars!!✯✯ March 24 2016
By Stefanie@Mommy's Late Night Book-up - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Wow wow wow!! This is the 2nd book in the Jaded Regret series. If I were you even though it's considered a standalone I'd still read Sentenced first. This is Beau and April's story. And, man what a story do these two have.

Beau hasn't had the easiest life. His found his father after he committed suicide. His mother hates him and tells him every horrible thing you can say to somebody. She left both Beau and his sister Natalie. They ended up spending their childhoods in foster care. It's where they met Bex. Beau and Bex were the 2 that started Jaded Regret.

Beau deals with severe depression. His mind is always telling him how worthless, miserable, loser and pathetic he is. The only thing that can truly calm him down is the drums. It doesn't matter if he's playing them or if his hands are drumming while old and new music.

April is a social worker. She works hard to get every child out of foster care. Her parents are opening a new facility. April wants it to get the word out about it as much as possible. She knows the story of Bex, Natalie and Beau of Jaded Regret. They're always helping out foster children every chance they get.

April heard the stories of Beau. He's the best, hottest drum player around. He's also the quietest and shyest. But, what she heard and what she got were two different things. Beau and April had such a strong connection. Even without knowing each other.They understood each other. Beau hasn't dated or been with a girl in 10 yrs and hasn't wanted too. But, with April it's different. He wants to be around her. It's a new weird feeling for Beau. April wants to be with Beau as much as possible. April will take it as slow as Beau needs. Just as the walls start to come down and things are starting to get better. Something from the past is revealed. Something that was never known. And, everything goes black.

This book was written beautifully. My heart broke for Beau from the very first page. I could never imagine going through what Beau went through his entire life. If it wasn't for his sister(s), his band and most recently Johnny. Who knows what would've happened with Beau.

April is perfect for Beau. It helps that she is around foster children and knows the issues they deal with. So, she realizes she has to proceed with caution. Because of April and the children at this foster home Beau finds himself pushing his own limits and getting closer to his triggers.

There was so many times I found myself tearing up. Then, laughing the next. Trust me when I say you do not want to start reading this if you have plans or are sleeping. You will be pissed if you have to put this baby down. LL Collins wrote this beautifully. She likes to make me cry. I'm telling you she does!!

HASH(0xa1ea1978) out of 5 stars A light at the end of a tunnel.....with a beautiful twist! March 22 2016
By Jenny Rapp - Published on Amazon.com

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.

HASH(0xa1ea13fc) out of 5 stars A must read!!! March 11 2016
By Karen Monasterio - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
First, let me say that once I began reading Snared, I was sucked into the story. I couldn't put the book down once i started reading. I had to know what going to happen next.

This book deals with a family that has mental health issues. It started when Beau found his dad after he committed suicide and how it affected his life afterwards. His mother convinced him that he was a bad person and didnt deserve to be loved. He heard his mom's voice in his head talking to him.

Beau grew up in foster care with his sister Natalie and another girl Bex. The 3 of them became a family and could count on each other through the good times and the bad ones.

The band, Jaded Regret, was formed by Beau and Bex. Beau was a drummer and that is how he released his stress. Bex sang and Beau beat on the drums. The band was well known and got asked to play at a benefit for foster kids in need.

April Knight was the daughter of a respected doctor and social worker. She was also in charge of the benefit. Once Beau and April met, it was not an easy relationship. April was pretty persistent and finally got her man. Beau and April were going strong until he had a few set backs. Beau found out things that made his world come crashing down around him. April got to see Beau at his worst and his best. She loved him and was willing to stand by him always.

This story affected my life and made me more aware of the issues some people face. Keep your tissues handy. You will probably need them.
