    4. Dante from Broken English is in this book. He's 23 here.2DanteSaturdayDante walked gingerly along the corridor that led to the parole hearing, wincing as he pushed through a crowd of noisy people.

    5. Well I certainly enjoyed my time going back to "the Hood," as I like to call it! Marita A. Hansen did not disappoint when she wrote this gem, which was once again full of drama, secrets, and reveals. There was plenty of action to keep me on my toes, and plenty of characters that were causing all sorts of entertainment that kept me interested in what was going on. The only thing I was disappointed about was that Mikey was no where to be found. I fell in love with him in the first book, and I was [...]

    9. *****5 Beautiful Mindblowing Stars*****Marita did it again!!  I didn't think she would be able to top her book "Behind the Hood" but yet again - she has blown me away.Her style of writing just top any of the other authors out there when dealing with a YA audience.  Hell, I'm in my 40's and I still am addicted to this series!She is able to get my heart pounding throughout the whole book while crying, sobbing, grinning, head shaking and the list just goes on and onYou would NEVER know that these [...]

I finishe [...]

    11. Absolutely fantastic! I'm complete obsessed with this series. These books are just so raw. I love the multiple POV's in the stories and how they all tie in together perfectly.This series is fast paced and jam packed full of drama, violence, sex and POV changes, which won't appeal to everyone so. You've been warned. Even though you can safely start this series from book two. I would recommend starting from book one which was amazing.

    12. Loved this! I have a new favorite couple in Sledge and Corey! Plus a new book boyfriend in Dante.damn he is hot! I liked all the main characters except for Beth, I didn't like her much. I'm immediately starting the next booktally addicted now.

    13. I'm Done. I'm Emotionally Exhausted and Whipped!! This book is one hell of a rollercoaster.The story centers around "The Rata Family" living in a South Auckland neighbourhood where drink, drugs sex and violence is a way of life. Ash the eldest of the Rata brother's crushed by events that happened 10 years ago after he was brutally raped by his stepfather. Trying to move on with his life and also with the added factor his first love walked out on him. Ash moves forward into a new relationship wit [...]

    14. I called it quits at 44%. These people are all horrible. They treat each other terribly. Hurt each other both purposely out of spite and hate as well as accidentally out of stupidity and ignorance. I'm confused as to how people actually liked Ash. I don't feel like I know him at all, except that he was a terrible boyfriend to Beth. If you don't like her, dump her. Everyone thought she was a bitch, and yes, she should have just left him as well, but I can relate to being in a neglectful relations [...]

    15. I really enjoyed this book. Dante, ash, sledge and Corey. I love them all. I think Dante might be my favorite although i hate his love is the annoying BITCH but I loved sledge and Corey, even though at times i felt it was a little Un real how they happened.And ash my heart hurt for him, he's been through hell and when he thinks everything is finally right SHIT hits the fan again.I did have some problems at times understanding the slang but, for me, didn't take anything away from the story. I Lik [...]

    16. I really didn't think this book was going to be as good as (Book 1) where we read about Tama who was like a train wreck ready to happen, this book for me ticked all the boxes also, had the two hotter than hot brothers who were always mistaken for the other, only difference in appearance was Dante had a tattoo round his eye, you also had a glimpse of the love as a family unit, which wasn't so strong in the beginning but came across more as you kept reading, times I was caught laughing, others I w [...]

    17. I started this book Friday evening and was finished by Saturday morning. I LOOOOOOVED this book. I skipped book one to start this because of the great reviews. This was well worth it. Who can pass up hot tattooed men that wear leathers? Exactly. The stories went well together and it was great how at every turn someone got tossed under the bus. I'm not doing this book any justice with this review because I'm not sure where to begin. It was that awesome.

    18. This was a surprisingly good book. I enjoyed it alot.There were alot of drama going on in this book. Sometimes it was hard to keep up, but it kept me interested.I loved all the characters. My favourite would be Dante. His a little crazy, but his awesome. I love Sledge too. Im not really into M/M romance, but I think Sledge and Corey are great together.A great book to read. Well done Marita.

    19. This tale of three brothers and their family, is a tale not for the feint of heart. You would not be able to put it down once you start reading. It's shocking, gritty and crass at times but it's an eye opener and a great read.

    20. I liked this book more than Behind The Hood and Graffiti Heaven. I think the characters it focused on were great. I know I'm supposed to be in love with Ash and Dante and don't get me wrong I like them and the picture of Ash on the cover is smokin' hot. But it was Corey and Sledge that I fell in love with during this book! I didn't really like them in 'Behind The Hood', mainly because they were friends with Tama and I hated him! OMG! The shower scene in the hospital at the end sealed the deal wi [...]

    21. As with the first two novels by Marita A. Hansen, I found myself becoming emotionally involved with these characters right from the very first chapter. It was easy to forget I was reading a novel of fiction rather than following the chaotic lives of real people. Her characters came across gut wrenchingly real to this reader and forced me to keep turning those pages until long past my bedtime, not just because I found myself interested in what might happen, but because I 'HAD' to know. My only re [...]

    22. This book was a psychology class, learning about rape, bipolar, post traumatic stress disorder, oppositional defiant disorder, and the list can go on. It also remind me of a movie that I saw, which I did love "Once were Warriors" OMG, so much tragic, one after the other, but how a family unity can push all the things aside. I was heart broken with Ash, Dante, Sledge, Juliet they have went through so much in their younger years. Tiana and Angelo loved them, regardless of the situation she still l [...]

    23. I didn't so much as read this book as devour it. I didn't really stop except for food and other necessities. While reading I was transported into these characters lives, and even though they definitely weren't full of sunshine and sweetness, I just couldn't stop reading.The mix of characters kept me thoroughly entertained, and I became invested in them. Parts of this were hard reading, as Marita A Hansen wrote a dark, gritty story here, but I felt hope for these characters, and just had to know [...]

    24. 4.5 stars - This was intense! I love Corey and Sledge and was so happy for them at the end. I was also happy that Ash and Tiana are back together, and interested to see what's going to happen between Dante and Beth. I'm not sure how much I actually like Beth right now though - I'm hoping I'll warm up to her in the next book. I really hope that Chaz dies, and can't believe Tama's back out! He is completely delusional. The poor Rata family can't seem to catch a break. And next Sledge and Juliet wi [...]

    25. What a really intense way to start 2013! I loved this book. It was angsty, emotional, irrational and very dramatic. There was so much going on but I managed to keep up. Terrific story and a first I've read with characters of their ethnicity and in their setting. Every character got their own POVs throughout which was really great as you were never left wondering what was going on in one of their heads.A story about family but one that's really messed up, each in their own way. This was a really [...]

    26. I finished a 9 book series and was left in that lonely readers point missing the characters. I had this on my kindle and I don't even remember buying it but I figured I'd give it a shot. Since I usually hate the first book I read after a good series I wasn't expecting muchbut this one sucked me right in from start to finish. I started it last night and finished it in less than 24 hours. You know it's a good book when it's 3 am and the kids will be up at 6 and you still don't want to stop reading [...]

    27. A dark read full of New Zealand slang (which was unfamiliar to me but is accurate from what I understand). I was still fully able to follow the story even with the new to me slang.There were parts that I really liked about the read – like Corey and Sledge’s developing relationship and parts I really didn’t – like Beth and everything she stood for. Corey and Sledge really were the highlight of the book for me. I liked reading about the other two Rata brothers but I could mostly take or le [...]

    28. My oh my where to start. First let me say that I usually dont skip around within a series but when I read the description of this book, I had to read it. This book was AMAZING from beginning to end. I fell in love with Ash, Dante, Corey, Sledge hell I was even felling sorry for NAF!!! Beth was aggrevating but every book has to have at least one person you want to smack and she was the person for me. I have to now go back and read the 1st book and then tap my foot impatiently waiting for book 3. [...]

    29. This book was so hard to put down! It's the sequel to Behind The Hood. I would type it was great to catch up with the characters from the first book, but it feels mean enjoying reading about such a succession of nasty things happening to people (even though they aren't real). Good storytelling, clever weaving together all the different characters lives. I find her style of writing agrees with me so much, that once I pick up a book, time just disappears and then suddenly books finished. But I sti [...]
