You Loved Me at My Ugliest, Evie Harper

Series: You Loved Me Series #3
Author: Evie Harper
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: July 28, 2015

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?


Donna's Words Turn Me On Review:

You Loved Me at My Ugliest by Evie Harper

“You loved me at my ugliest and still chose to see the good in me.”

My word this author is an incredible story-teller. This story details the lives of 

Alexa and Joseph after they leave Columbia. They have always had a rocky 

relationship, and in this book, we get to see how it all started. Joseph has had a 

hard life, as I’m sure you can imagine from reading the first two books, but I’m 

not sure I imagined it to be this hard. Alexa is a warm and caring person and that 

shows through more in this book. I love that Ms. Harper also shows us what is 

going on in the lives of the other characters the readers have grown to love, Lily, 

Jake, Dom, Emily and Kayne. This book is not without its share of gore though, so 

be forewarned. This book also has those sexy scenes we’ve come to expect from 

Ms. Harper. After finishing this book, I feel compelled to jump head first into 

Portland Street Kings, another series by Evie Harper. I’m hoping that some hinted 

at story lines from this book will continue in that series or there will be another 

branch off. I give this book 4 stars with 3 hands down the pants. 

“…inner strength is stronger than most people could ever imagine, most will 

never have to reach down and use it. I will always be awed at how much pain 

humans can take and still continue to go on.”
