Four Stars

Shock is too tamed of a word for how I feel right now. Hayze is bad the guy your parents tell you to stay away from. The boy that gets you hooked and then leaves you. But that’s just the surface of Hayze. Taylor sees that deep love and vulnerability inside him. Taylor makes him want to be and do better. I liked how Taylor still kept a flare of innocence about her. Yes she is breaking out of her shell but she is playing it smart. I’m not sure how she survived her father but I loved how she handled him. The author gives you a lot to think about in this story. How far is too far? Can you really trust someone after so many lies? When do you give up on them? I need to read book two asap because Hazye is low key a mad man.

Hazed by Brittany Butler is the first book, I’ve read by this author. I wasnt really a fan of the book however the writing was good. Hayze is the sexy bartender where Taylor starts to work. There is an instant attraction between the two. Only problem is Hayze has the bad boy vibe going. Hayze is with a different girl every night and girls throw themselves at him on the regular.
Taylor doesn’t have much experience in anything. She grew up the daughter of a pastor and never had the chance to do anything the other kids in town did. She left home for some freedom. She is starting college and doesn’t really know anyone aside from her roommate Lea. Lea and Hayze happen to be pretty close but, Taylor doesn’t realize just how close they really are.
Of course Taylor and Hayze end up seeing each other. I understand she is a sheltered girl but come on, how does she not see things right in front of her. I liked most of the characters and think the author did a good job but, I just didn’t like how blind Taylor was made out to be.

Hazed book 1 In the hazed series by Brittany Butler is my first book that I have read by this author. Hazed is a book about a young girl named Taylor who left a strict fathers home to head to college where she is learning about her shelf and what she wants in life. Taylor gets a job where she meets this handsome young man named Haze who is everything her father would be against. In this amazing read you learn about both Taylor and Haze and you fall in love with these two characters.. I personally can relate to Taylor and what she is feeling ang going through in this book. I’m really interested to see where this series is going to go. I fell Brittany Butler did a wonderful job on this book and cant wait to read the next book in this series.

Hazed by Brittany Butler was a phenomenal college romance read! It’s intense, emotional, touching and heart-wrenching, it was everything I wanted and more! This is the first book in the Hazed series and my first book by this author, but it certainly won’t be my last!

I found that the storyline flowed really well and yes at times I found Taylor to be frustratingly oblivious, but it made her even more relatable as we often ignore suspicious behavior from those we love most. The chemistry between the two main characters had me hooked from the beginning until the very end and I can’t wait to continue this series to get answers to all my questions.

Ok so I have been officially Hazed…This is my first Brittany Butler book and all I can ask myself is Why? I loved this story, parts were not easy to read but that is because they were written in a way that made them feel so so real. I could feel the emotions these characters were feeling, I swear I could. The struggles that plague Hayze and his constant battle to prove he will fix them felt very real and I found myself falling hard for him and wanting so bad to help…Then on the other side I also felt every emotion that Taylor was experiencing and agreeing with her as far as wondering if things would ever be different..This one had me all messed up and then it ended and here i sit wanting…no…needing more…

I loved every word in this book, I adored the characters, even the ones that angered me but they were written so well… The family aspect angered me many times and my heart was totally with Taylor and how she was brought up.

Im totally rambling here…I can only say Read this book…it was written beautifully and I MUST have the next in this series as soon as possible. I also much go look at what I’ve missed by not reading this author much earlier.

Loved it!!

This is a story thats hard to read as its so relatable.

The characters of this story (Taylor and Hayze) are very well written and so relatable you feel like you are living their lives with them.

Taylor is a young innocent woman who leaves home to go to college. She starts working at a bar where she meets Hayze.
Hayze is the bad boy, the player who treats women as playthings. As much as they try to fight it they fall for each other but the relationship is toxic.
Hayze has secrets from his past and his present life that he cant share with Taylor and this leads to loads of disagreements and conflict.
It all comes to a head when Hayze’s secret life affects Taylor and he has to come clean.
Will this revelation be to much for Taylor? No matter how much you love someone can you survivie in a toxic relationship?

This book has left me wanting more, wanting to know the outcome of these peoples choices

Hazed by Brittany Butler is book one of the Hazed Series. This book is recommended for readers over 17 due to some of the subject matter. The book does end with some loose ends so be prepared to want to read book two right away. This book is THAT good. I read this book in one sitting and can’t wait to read book two.

Taylor Thompson finally has some freedom. She was accepted to and moved to a college an hour away from her strict controlling father. Now, her decisions are hers to make. Spending time with Hayze Clark seems like an easy decision for Taylor. But little by little lies are told and secrets come out of the woodwork and Taylor’s not sure she has the energy to fix Hayze and the issues he seems to have. Not at the expense of her heart at least. Will these two have a future?

I was so conflicted on how to feel throughout this book. On one hand, Hayze is clearly a lost soul. On the other hand, the relationship doesn’t seem healthy for them. They are both great characters, very realistic and relatable. I just so badly want them to find happiness. This is such a great book!

Hazed is the first book that I have read by Brittany Butler and one that I really enjoyed. I liked the real feel to the story and I found that I was easily engaged in what I was reading. The author’s writing was really good, real, raw and emotional at times. I liked that I didn’t find the story too predictable either which meant I was guessing what was going to happen. I liked the characters, I think they are characters you need to get to know and I found that the more I read the more I learnt about them and the more I liked them. There were some difficult subjects in the story but the author wrote about them well. Taylor and Hayze both had their own problems and I really felt like I was right there with them, particularly Hayze and just wanting the best for them both.
I am definitely looking forward to reading the next book in the series!

Hazed (The Hazed Series Book 1)Hazed by Brittany Butler
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A good book is supposed to evoke feelings and emotions. This book certainly did that for me. I’m not sure what rating I want to give it so I’m going to free write and see if it comes together for me.

This is a Y/A coming of age/new age story that ticked me off in a lot of ways. The decisions the female protagonist makes are infuriating. I wanted to shake my kindle so that I could shake her and tell her… Well I can’t tell you what I would tell her because then that would just ruin the story for you – wouldn’t it?

This story has a lot going for it. The characters are all meaningful in the role they play in the story. The friendships are strong, family of choice is vs family of origin is explored and parent/child relationships are complex. There is a lot going on in this story but it was all very easy to follow. This is one of those books that I COULD NOT PUT DOWN BECAUSE I HAD TO FIND OUT WHAT WAS GOING TO HAPPEN.

By the time I finished, I really wanted to jump into the next book in the series, but if I didn’t get to sleep I wouldn’t be any good on Monday morning.

How am I going to rate this story? I will rate it 5 starts for a couple of reasons:

1. I finished this story at midnight last night, it’s now 6:20PM and it still owns me and my thoughts. I’m invested in the characters and want – no NEED – to find out what they do next.

2. There is an aspect of the male protagonist that I completely identify with and I like the way his character was written. Instead of being completely vilified, he is still (presumably) a successful student living his life the way he wants to.

3. The family “afterward” is explored in such a way that it felt human and real (even though it totally ticked me off).

I am grateful the next book is already written so I can jump right in.

HAZED (THE HAZED SERIES – BOOK 1) BY BRITTANY BUTLER – REVIEW BY MELISSA AGENA

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I CANNOT WAIT UNTIL THE NEXT BOOK! Hazed is the first book in the Hazed Series by Brittany Butler. This story follows Taylor Thompson in her journey to become her own person. Coming from a home where her father is a preacher and didn’t allow her to do anything on her own terms, Taylor moved an hour away to go to college so that she can become someone completely different. Boys were not even in her view at this point. She just wanted a different life. That is until she meets Hayze Clark at the bar she begins to work at. Hayze is the bartender and the local man whore. He has his own set of problems with his own father. He’s never wanted a relationship until he met Taylor. Now he wants it all…with her. This is such an emotional rollercoaster. So many twists and turns that you won’t expect. And of course…a cliff hanger! So yes, I cannot wait for the next book to come out! I love the characters in this book and I love the interactions between all the characters. This is really a great story! Definitely a book that I would recommend.
