Book Description

Book 2 in the Avoiding series

Lexi has finally given up her once destructive relationships and moved onto bigger and better things with a sexy new man in town. Just when she is starting to figure it out with him, her world is tilted once again with a phone call from none other than Ramsey Bridges. A year after his entrance into her life, Ramsey is trying to make amends and does the one thing she never expects—invites her to Jack's wedding.

The wedding she had evaded at all costs. But no matter what she does, Lexi can't seem to escape her past with Jack. But does she really want to?

Despite the explosive chemistry between Lexi and Ramsey, she is skeptical about trusting him after everything that has happened. When things are amiss with him, she starts questioning his motives. Can Ramsey be the one to remove Jack from Lexi's life permanently or should she move on with her blossoming new life?

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything you thought you wanted is about to change... December 2, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've been manipulated in all the best ways! The. Best. Ways. K.A. Linde took everything from Avoiding Commitment and found a way to make it better. This was better. Better in a way that I did not see coming.

Don't get me wrong, this book will frustrate the hell out of you. There are times you'll want to punch Lexi right in the tang hole, grab Ramsey, then run! Wait...WHAT!?? Did she just say grab Ramsey? Hell yeah I did!

True, I was the captain of Team Jack and the grand master of the "Jack & Lexi getting it on" parade. Even though he was a total dick, I still wanted him with Lexi. I knew he was bad for her, but I want them together. I needed them together. I never even came close to wanting her with Ramsey. In fact, I was terrified of what this sequel would bring, terrified. Ramsey was just a secondary character and I wanted him to stay there. He didn't stay there.

After reading AC, if you would have told me that Ramsey was going to be so present in book two, my interest in reading it would have been a little less than zero! This is Lexi and Jack's story not Lexi, Jack, and, Ramsey's, but this is me admitting that I WAS WRONG!! Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. I LOVE RAMSEY and I was wrong! Ramsey instantly ripped off my Team Jack shirt with his bare hands and took me! He took me away from Jack and I never want to go back!

K.A. Linde took a huge gamble with Ramsey in AR...huge! But amazingly, she hit the jackpot! She made me effin fall in love with Ramsey, HARD! You know how amazingly talented you have to be to change a readers mind like that?! Seriously!? Blown away!

Don't get me wrong, this book will piss you off just as much as the last.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Autumn Review for Avoiding Responsibility November 30, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Once upon a time I found a book on fictionpress. This book introduced me to a tale of love, angst, regret, turmoil, and holy hot sex. I became immediately addicted and spent the following two days reading not only the first book, but the second as well. This treasure of a find is called the Avoiding Series.

At the time, Avoiding Responsibility, the second book wasn't even completed. So what did I do??? I tracked (stalked) down the authors info and contacted her (begged) about her plans to finish the book. I may have also encouraged (pressured) her to publish these truly spectacular books. And guess what??? SHE DID! Now I get to share my obsession with those of you who have and who've yet to read these amazing books.

There have been a select few books/series that have stayed with me for days or weeks after I've finished them. This is one of those series for me. In Avoiding Commitment, I met Lexi and Jack. These two had an undeniable sexual connection. They were a part of each other's past and had a terrible time letting go of their obsession with each other. Needless to say, things did not end well for them in the end. Jack is now engaged to be married to a horrid, horrid girl named Bekah. Not only is Jack engaged, but Lexi has found herself entangled with Bekah's smokin hot brother Ramsey *sigh*.

Now we get to dive in to Avoiding Responsibility. I'm not going to give a run down of the story, because you MUST read it for yourself. However, I will say that this book was the perfect sequel. The ending of AC wasn't wrapped up in a neat little bow. I was left feeling unsettled and anxious. Plus, I really wanted Lexi to be with Ramsey. So, we start out a year after the end of AC and A LOT has happened in that year.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 STARS! HIGH OCTANE DRAMA AT IT'S BEST! December 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Reading K.A. Linde's Avoiding series reminds me of the time back in high school when I was totally addicted to watching daytime soap operas. All the sex, lies, and drama was so over-the-top and inconceivable but for some reason I could not tear my eyes away from it. Just like with Avoiding Commitment, K.A. Linde had my stomach in knots and my nerves on edge while reading Avoiding Responsibility. If you are into high-octane drama, then you'll want to hang on tight because Avoiding Responsibility will take on one bumpy and emotional ride.

Avoiding Responsibility begins one year after the events that took place in Avoiding Commitment. A lot has happened since Lexi left Jack back in Atlanta. Lexi has finally rid herself of the dysfunctional and tumultuous relationship she had with Jack Howard and has recently been spending some time with a sexy mystery man. When Avoiding Responsibility opens up, Lexi is actually pretty happy and just enjoying her current status. But per the usual, Lexi's life doesn't stay drama free for very long. Just as she's enjoying her time with mystery man, Ramsey Bridges reemerges back into her life. You find out that Lexi and Ramsey reconnected after she returned to New York and that they were in a relationship for a year before things turned sour. I won't go into all the sordid details of their relationship because a lot does happen but in typical K.A. Linde fashion a lot of drama ensues between Lexi and Ramsey. Just because she's with a new guy doesn't mean that Lexi's love life is smooth sailing from here on out.

Lexi wasn't the type of heroine that I instantly fell in love with. She had me questioning her morals and ethics in Avoiding Commitment and definitely made some pretty horrible decisions when it came to her love life.
