Review: Snared (Jaded Regret #2) by L.L. Collins

*****5 Stars*****
This is the second Jaded Regret book and although it can be read as a stand alone, I highly recommend that you read the first book, Sentenced, first as you don't want to miss out on Johnny and Bex's story.
Anyway this is Beau and April's story and it was absolutely fantastic! Right from the Prologue, reading about the start in life that Beau had - I was in tears. My heart broke for that little boy. Now he's all grown up and still terrorised by memories of his past, the only thing that seems to help him is playing drums with his rock band, Jaded Regret.
April is a social worker who works with foster children and asked Jaded Regret to perform at a fund raiser for the new children's hospital that her dad was building. She wanted to raise awareness about the number of children in foster care, and knowing about Bex's past and the involvement she has had with foster kids herself, she hoped that they would help.
This was such an amazing, emotional read, I honestly didn't want it to end. I really hope there is more to this series. I would love to read Natalie's story, and Tanner's too!

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?
