Review: Rampant by Gemma JamesRampant on October 28, 2014
Genres: New Adult
Format: eARC
Life is twisted. Cruel. After being ripped from the safe haven of Rafe's arms, my new kidnapper is waging a sick game. Unable to make my body do his bidding, he's resorting to psychological warfare. He'll bend my mind until I break, and when I do, that just might be my saving grace.

I'll forge through hell to get back to Rafe, body and spirit broken and bleeding, but I'm unprepared for what I find. He's done what I can't: he's erased eight years of pain and betrayal. I don't know how to bring him back to me, because bringing him back means ripping him to shreds all over again.

RAMPANT is a new adult dark romance with disturbing themes and explicit content, including sexual scenes and violence that may offend some. Intended for mature audiences. Part two of the CONDEMNED series. This is not a stand-alone read.


About Torrent (Book #1)

I’ve been obsessed with Rafe Mason since I was thirteen. The twisted part of this story is that I still want him, even now.

Now that he’s holding me captive on an island.

Rafe has his reasons for doing what he’s doing, and if I’m honest, I can’t blame him. I’m the girl who sent him to prison for a heinous crime he didn’t commit.

But now he’s free and the tables have turned…now he’s the one driven by obsession.

TORRENT is a new adult dark romance with disturbing themes and explicit content that includes sexual situations and violence. Intended for adult readers 18+ only. Part one of the CONDEMNED series. This is not a stand-alone read.

my thoughts


So I’m not going to lie. I was a bit disappointed with Rampant. As I was reading the book I was all sorts of engrossed. The pages practically turned themselves and then I got to the end and my first thought was, “What was the point of all that.” Honestly, nothing is accomplished in this book. Nothing really happens.






Anyway, so at the end of book 1 we find out that Rafe has no memory after being shot and Alex is kidnapped by Zach. What changes in book 2? Very little. It is so frustrating. The book is well written but nothing happens. We are left hanging and honestly, I feel like my time was wasted. I could easily wait for book 3, never read book 2, and still be fine. I’m not sure how to feel about all of this aside from disappointed. Will I read book 3? I don’t know now. Had you asked when I was half way through book 2 I would have said Absolutely YES but now, I’m not sure.
