Explicit by Ava Harrison- 3.8/5 Stars

Explicit by Ava Harrison
Such a fantastic read. It owned me from beginning to end.
Explicit was an emotional rollercoaster. It was hard to put this book down once I started it.
The two main characters were broken. Both imperfect. And yet, they were perfect for each other.
I can't say I liked the title and blurb...I don't think it represented the book well. I was expecting something completely different. I mean, I am thrilled with what I got, it just wasn't what I was expecting...

So... the story is about Pierce and Lindsey. Both imperfect characters full of flaws and hurt. Both try to bury their pain on alcohol and drugs.
Lindsey had an accident and is clean. Trying to get her life back together and get over the physical limitations her accident left her with. She is still healing both inside and out, but she is slowly getting there. She is tough girl!
Pierce is another story all together. He doesn't know anything beyond alcohol, sex and drugs. He doesn't have anyone to trust, to be himself with, to help him focus on other things. It is impossible not to feel for him even when he is doing the most stupid things. He needs someone to trust, he needs someone to believe in him, and he needs time. 

I think this was a great story that will have your heart palpitating often. 
My only issue with it is that the story starts really fast and because all the characters appear to have a background story to them that I should know but don't I felt like I was missing something the whole time. If I could turn back the clock I would read the other books first. Explicit is a standalone, but it didn't really feel like one to me. Here is a little list (one I wish I had before starting it) of the other books:
