    One thought on “Helpless”

    1. A.J. Adams has officially been added to my must-read list. She took a story that was dark, twisted and heartbreaking and infused it with enough laughs, optimism, heroics, and hope to make it heartwarming.Likes:✿ Fracas: she was dealt a shitty hand, was labeled and persecuted for what was done to her, and was still able to hold onto hope. No one heard her. No one really saw her. No one helped. She was called horrible names, she was treated with disgust, but her heart was still open enough to gi [...]

Ms. Adams has such a great way of writing d [...]

    3. At first I hated the way this story was being told , so fast , from first person that it was hard to keep up. Once my brain adjusted to the writing style, and Fracas enters the picture it takes a turn for the better and keeps on going. It is not dark , but mentions dark happenings. Caden is easy enough to fall for as the war torn hero, but Fracas steals the show. I wanted to see her overcome the nasty town she grew up in. I wanted Caden to fall for me. So the book was a light read in genre, but [...]

    4. Out of all the AJ Adams story I read HELPLESS is by far the best one yet. Set in England with Russian Mobs and MC, Fracas and Caden (odd names for characters and I tend to interchange genders more than once while reading this book) are one heck of a couple. Fracas being known as a very low person in the society doesn't care about hearsay even and just wants to leave it all and start anew but along the way, be it legal or pure that she did, she is still judged. It wasn't easy life for her and whe [...]

    5. Thanks to the author for providing me with a copy, unfortunately I didn't download it in time and ended up buying my own copy. It was totally worth it. I can always count on this author to give me exceptional entertainment value from her no holds barred books. They pack a mean punch sometimes. Fracas lives up to her name as Caden steals her in exchange for his Busa being stolen. Words are easy You give me back my Busa and I will give you back your girl. Caden doesn't even see it coming as his li [...]

    6. Reviewed on behalf of 2 girls who love books blogThis is an MC book with a twist and it is fabulous. The main male lead is ex-military and after witnessing his family getting tortured he goes on a revenge mission but he gets more than he bargained for in more ways than one. He comes across a girl who he takes as leverage after his beloved busa is stolen but not all as is first appears. Fracas is a woman has been through hell raped battered abused and hated by her hometown can her life get any wo [...]

    7. A roller coaster of a ride…From the very start I knew this was going to be an intense read. An intense, violent, bloody, ‘stretch my comfort zone to the limit’, read. And it was. Holy mackerel, was it!Caden Winslow was ex-soldier but he has lost none of his intensity or his ability to get the tough jobs done. He is used to dealing with any and all types of people and he rolls with the punches, and delivers them, when he has to. He calls the shots though and when Fracas lands in his lap, an [...]

    8. This is a fabulous story from the first page till the end. The characters are strong and very creative. Fracas lives a very hard life. She does the only thing she knows to survive, men love her and women look down their nose at her. Fracas always responds with a loud crude mouth that makes things even worse for her. Caden is ex-military, tough, never comprising. When the story begins he commits a horrendous crime. Caden’s life has been tortured with things that are unforgivable. Now it is time [...]

    9. So this was like an MC book/ ex-military kind of book which I loved. Our two main characters are Fracas and Caden. Fracas is a young woman who is a whore but really life has just fucked her over and she's only done it because of circumstances that have made her make the choices she has. She's been around the wrong people who have taken advantage of her and now she has the stimga of being a whore. My heart broke for her, men in her village only want one thing from her and women gossip about her. [...]

    10. I absolutely loved Helpless, it struck every chord with me. From the moment I began Caden's story I was hooked, like page one, I had to know everything about this guy. He was mysterious, calculated, tough as nails, and hot as hell. You soon discovered he had a tender heart protected by an armor plate, and watching it soften to Fracas was sweet. Now. Fracas, wholly crap that girl had the saddest most heartbreaking life. I haven't read such an abused character in ages. I ached for her, but CHEERED [...]

    11. Fracas Macintyre is just trying to survive. Men use her and think she is a “tart” she isn’t one, she is just trying to survive and the first man that shows her some attention (taking her out to dinner on a date) she took up with him. But, of course he is a bad man. Now she happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. I definitely get the title of the book “Helpless” because Fracas is. At times she lets her temper get to her and she bites back, sometimes at the most inopportune t [...]

    12. A unique Twist to MC!The dialogue was a little tough to understand and follow at times however as the story unfolded I found myself wrapped in this unique tale. Fracas a local girl who owes debt finds herself being held as collateral to Caden and Ex military man seeking revenge after local thugs steal his beloved busa. What unravels from there is a fun twist to your everyday MC novels. I found myself really enjoying Fracas charactere is smart,tough and overcomes everything life has thrown at her [...]

    13. Reviewed on behalf of 2 Girls Who Love Books BlogHelpless isn't your ordinary MC book. It was very good but it was confusing at timesIt was a fast paced book meaning it moved fast. Facas had a tough start in her life. She was on the streets and sold herself to stay alive and fed. She found herself in dangerous scenarios many times. She was kidnapped for a ransom situation. It was her for a Busa. She didn't realize what she facing when she met Caden.Caden is a scary ex military man. He has a past [...]

    14. Wow! What a rollercoaster ride this book was! Fracas has had a rough life that really went bad when she turned 15. She thinks she has turned her life around when everything get worse. Caden, a ruthless man with demons but a soft side for those he loves, gets tangled up with Fracas and what a tangle it turns out to be! The two are an unlikely duo but perfect for one another, at least once the first hurdles are overcome. I loved tough Caden, spirited Fracas, intriguing Rex and all of the members o [...]

    15. Four Great Stars! Fracas has been abused and tortured but has remained a strong woman. Caden feels like he does not deserve to be happy when he comes home from the war. Fracas and Caden are an unlikely pair but together they fit perfectly. This story is fast paced and has a lot of twists and turns. It is beautifully written and is a great MC story.I received this book as an ARC for an honest review. This book was read and reviewed by Annamaria for Alpha Book Club.

    16. Helpless is bold and daring, and walks the fine line between what is acceptable and what is not. The heroes are larger than life, and more than a littlent. Damaged, but not broken. They're not hindered by the law or held to any code other than their own sense of right and wrong, which has been shaped by their histories and is also a little bent.Caden started off on shaky ground for me. He is hard, uncompromising, and obviously tortured by something(s) in his past. He does some things usually con [...]

    17. I'm gonna start this review with this is the longest damn book I think I've ever read, and it's a bit misleading. This book is NOT a dark romance. I'm a lover of all things dark and taboo and this does not feed the need or even come close. It starts out with that feeling and got me all excited, and then all of a sudden the story is all over the place, talking about past experiences that have nothing to do with the story at all and thrown in at the strangest times during the book. If it was impor [...]

    18. Caden is the illegitimate son of an English Baron. Although raised by his father and his father’s wife, he was not given a title the way his younger brother was. He’s ok with that, he’s the one with the money anyway and he and his brother are very close. Caden had been in the British Army until recently. In a short period of time he lost the mother who raised him, his father, his best friend and this biological mother. By the time he left the army he was ready for something new. “(he)mig [...]

    19. So this was like an MC book/ ex-military kind of book which I loved. Our two main characters are Fracas and Caden. Fracas is a young woman who is a whore but really life has just fucked her over and she's only done it because of circumstances that have made her make the choices she has.

    20. Caden is out for revenge. He has found his victim Colonel Vukoja and now it is time to make him pay. Caden uses a technique called Death of a Thousand Cuts; this is a technique that the Colonel would use on his victims. This technique is incredibly painful and is a psychological torture. Caden is very careful in not leaving any evidence behind. Then some fool stole Caden’s Busa (which is the world’s fastest motorcycle, a Busa can reach the top speed of 194 miles per hour) so this fool learns [...]

    21. Caden is a man who has been serving in the military overseas for Her Majesty. He was part of a special group of solders, maybe he still is, but now he is home. His brother, Rex (not his real name) is the younger brother but is the one with the Title to his name, being the legitimate son of their father. Yes, Caden is a bastard child. Into his life walks Fracas. Preconceived notions run amok in this book. Things that seem to be aren't, things that aren't really what they seem, may just be. This i [...]

    22. I was all for this story at first, reading the blurb and the cover really grabbed my attention; but as the story went on and on I found that I was having a hard time getting into it. I thought it seemed as if it kept repeating itself over and over. Of course that was when I reached the halfway mark. The next few chapters after that really got me into the story and I of course ended with really liking it. The author really does a great way of getting the so many details in the story to make sense [...]

    23. AJ Adams has done it again in the Contemporary fiction Genre, that crosses over dark romance, erotica, action & suspense with sub-G's in military, mafia and a unique MC style I prefer- not too violent! :D This is an edgy, wild, roller-coaster ride that grabbed me from the start and held me hostage until the very end! So riveting, it kept me on the edge of my seat, turning pages, totally engaged and not wanting to stop when I had to! Yes, this has an intense story-line, with a few different [...]

    24. Rags to richesOh my goodness! I really had a great emotional ride reading this book! I loved Fracas and Caden! The rest of the characters were perfect as well! I loved the story of both characters and was really impressed with our crazy, fouled mouth girl Fracas. She held her head high and yeah, she broke down as well but that's what made it all real. Through out the book I could not stop picturing Caden as John Cena! All that muscle!! Anyways, I really enjoyed this book and if you like strong c [...]

    25. This is the third book I have read by this author and although it was daring and different from the usual, I found myself getting a bit lost at times and confused. Some sections were more clear than others and the British terms always seemed to catch me off guard. The best part of this book (and what kept me invested) is the relationship between Fracas and Caden was volatile, sexy and at times almost shocking in its gritty appeal but basically what held my attention when the rest of the plot see [...]

    26. I don't know quite what it is about AJ Adams' novels that makes them so appealing. LikeThe Bonus, Helpless is dark - dealing with themes of sexual trafficking and the exploitation of women and minors. The overall plot is unlikely to the point of farfetched. Caden (the hero) is deeply violent but redeemed by loyalty to his family and friends. Fracas (the heroine) is crude, mouthy, makes terrible decisions and is brilliantly funny. Throw in 'poor but honest girl meets wealthy member of the nobilit [...]

    27. If there's one thing AJ Adams does well (and there are many!), it's characters. Whether they're the Mexican cartel bosses with brains or English tarts with hearts, they are three-dimensional, sharp-witted and captivating. As for the cast of Helpless, Fracas Macintyre is aptly named. Caden Winslow is a former solder and nobleman who has a cordial relationship with the local motorcycle club. These two form an unlikely alliance, both in bed and out of it. When they're done, the local gangsters, cen [...]

    28. This was a great book and way different than any book I've read. I liked that the MC characters in this book weren't all mean, in most MC books the bikers aren't really nice, these guys had the right mix of tough biker and nice guy attitude. Caden was a great hero, he starts the story closed off from his emotions but evolves throughout the book to become better for Fracas. Fracas was awesome, as the heroine she was multidimensional, she's tough yet sweet, she can be brave or scared and she wants [...]
