My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It is my opinion that this should NOT be read as a stand-alone. I think the series needs to be read in the order it was written to fully grasp the story behind the story of these characters. There are a lot of characters that precede this book who play an intricate role in PROBLEMATIC LOVE.

There is a huge world to this series. In each of the previous books, there is a realistic take on events happening and at times I have enjoyed reading the stories and other times I’ve been on the fence about them. This is one of those books that was just a little too realistic, a little too “problematic” for me. There are boundaries crossed, characters that I wanted to shake and tell them to step away to take a breath, and complex issues that I think were handled in a way that leads me to believe the author has some experience in.

I don’t want to recap the blurb or give anything away so it is difficult to explain what I am feeling. I’ve sat with it for a little bit hoping for the review to become clearer to me, but it’s not. It’s an entanglement of real life vs fiction that I sometimes struggle with – so I will simply say…

Read this book (after reading the others, of course).

I have read a few books from this amazing author and she continues to blow my mind. This is the eighth book in the Rogue series. I absolutely love Rockstar romance but this author exceeds my expectations. This is the continuation of Danny Boy’s story. You will have to at least read the fifth book Looking for Trouble to understand what is going on this book. This has grown to be one of my all time favorite Rockstar romances ever. I was so excited when this book came out. I stop everything and started to read this book right away. I was so invested in this story it only took me a little over one day to devour this incredible story.

This book starts a little bit after the first one ends. Danny Boy is so shocked but he got the woman he wanted the lovely Ms. Paterson. He knows that this is going to be the first real relationship he has ever had. Danny Boy had a bad childhood and he is still trying to heal from it. He was an addict and sometimes he still feels the temptation. Danny Boy is trying to become the man he needs to be for Amelia but it is easier said than done. He keeps on making mistakes that takes a toll on him and he quickly figures out that Amelia wants a lot of different things that he might not be able to give her. Will Danny Boy be able to find the man he truly is or will the darkness take over once again?

I absolutely loved this book. The storyline has it all romance, heartbreak, healing, forgiveness. You will have a love and hate relationship with these characters. Danny Boy as we all know is a the perfect bad boy. He doesn’t care what other people think of him but deep down he wants someone to love him. Danny Boy is a very raw and real character that I grew to love. Amelia is a beautiful woman that has a good head on her shoulders. She knows that this relationship could turn out ugly but she feels something for Danny Boy that she can’t get away from. These characters have some steamy scenes that will make your temperature rise. This talented author will keep you on your toes until the end. I hope there will be more stories of this amazing band soon.

Problematic Love (Rogue Series Book 8) by Lara Ward Cosio is another fantastic look at Danny and his first proper relationship. He has had a rough time his whole life and turning to drugs trying to deal with it but in this book he has kicked it all and is desperately trying to find himself and learning to love someone who makes him better. When all you have known is tough times it is hard to look at yourself and not put yourself down and assume people think the worst even if it isn’t true. The pain, the self doubt could either make or break him and his fledgeling relationship with Amelia.

Amelia went to Danny with the hope of breaking out of herself, the self she is willing to let loose and try a relationship with the man she has feelings for. It’s not all hearts and roses and Amelia finds that the one thing she desperately wants is the one thing he is not willing to give her.

It is a story of the grittier side of life and the raw emotions of someone who never believed he could be loved. You need to get your hands on this series and start it today.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Problematic Love was a great 5 star read and book eight in the Rogue series.
This is Danny Boy and Amelia’s story.

Amelia had struggled with her feelings for Danny Boy, being that he was a patient of hers. But she decides to come to the United States to try and make things work with Danny Boy, although he’s not sure if he can.

Danny is a recovering addict who has laid out his past to Amelia, he can’t help but wonder if he’s good enough for her. Can they really make it work? Can he lower his walls and let her in?

There were so many emotional pieces in this book, make sure you have kleenex. We get lots of twist and turns.They will be pushed to make some hard choices in order to move forward. I was hoping that these two would get it figured out and I wasn’t disappointed. I have to say I think they are one of my favorite couples in the series. I loved seeing all of the other secondary characters, it’s fun to see others from the series. I believe you can read this as a stand alone by I highly suggest you start from the beginning. I can’t wait to see more from this series.

Oh Danny Boy, or now Daniel. Hes been through so much and finally when things are going his way, hes waiting for the other shoe to drop to ruin it all. Hes lost and doesn’t know how to function with being sober.
Amelia, oh I loved her. She throws everything into trying with Daniel but will it be enough when they’re wanting different things.

This cannot be read as a standalone.

Problematic Love is book eight in the Rogue Series by Lara Ward Cosio. I have missed so.e books in this series and would recommend reading all the books before to maximise the reading pleasure this author provides. The story was still amazing even though I was slow on the uptake. The masterful way this author serenades a reader with the moving and tantalising content is enticing and addictive.

Daniel and Amelia err on the side of unethical. They cannot deny the inevitable pull toward each other, so they don’t. In theory, they should not ever be. But the reality is the love they share is undeniable. Their passion is uplifting, their connection deep. Their story was everything. 5 stars.

by Lara Ward Cosio

I have loved reading the Rogue Series since the beginning and I am ecstatic that the author keeps on going because I can’t get enough of them!! This book is no different, it is full of raw emotion, friendship, laughter, and so much more. This is Danny boy’s and Amelia’s story, and there is a lot of stuff for them to figure out, so you will find yourself on an emotional rollercoaster. If you want to find out if they are able to work through the past, their insecurities and other issues that they have then this is a must read. This has been one of my favorite series of all time and I find myself completely enthralled and invested in all of the characters. I highly recommend this book, I would give it more stars if I could.

Problematic Love is the 8th book in the Rogue Series by Lara Ward Cosio. The Rogue series is centred around a rock band called Rogue and their families in Dublin. This book is not designed to be read as a stand-alone. The author recommends that you have read Looking For Trouble and Felicity Found before reading this one. I had read Looking For Trouble but hadn’t read Felicity Found and did feel that I was missing some essential information so I would definitely recommend following the author’s recommendations and read the other 2 books first. However, this did not affect my enjoyment of this book. I loved Daniel and Amelia in Looking For Trouble and thoroughly enjoyed catching up with them again to see what their future held.
In Looking For Trouble Amelia is Daniel (or Danny Boy)’s therapist. Daniel is very broken and is a recovering heroin addict and Amelia has stepped away from her career after crossing the line and becoming too closely involved with Daniel.
This book continues their story as they try to work at becoming a couple, with all the trials and tribulations that being in a relationship bring. Every time it looks like they are getting somewhere another twist is thrown at you and the story goes in a different direction.
Just as it seems that all is going well, Amelia makes a confession that makes them both realise that they want totally different things. Can Daniel and Amelia make their relationship work?
I’d definitely recommend that you read this great book to find out. The characters are fantastic and so well written, you are really drawn into their story. You will go through a roller coaster of emotions when reading this book, It’s not a glossy romance, it’s hard hitting and gritty and this makes it more realistic.

Problematic Love by Lara Ward Cosio is the eighth book in the Rogue series. You do not have to have read all of this series you really do need to have read Looking For Trouble and Felicity Found inns order for you to get full enjoyment out of it.
At first I struggled s but with these characters – I’m not sure if I struggled to get back into their story or if I wasn’t as keen on this book. However as the book went on I found myself becoming invested in them again and wanting them to find a way to make it work.
I really enjoy this authors writing style as well. Everything feels so gritty and intense. This alone would be enough to make me read her books however the stories and the characters she creates are always done brilliantly.
If you haven’t already you should definitely read this series.

PROBLEMATIC LOVE (ROGUE SERIES BOOK 8) BY LARA WARD COSIO – REVIEW BY MELISSA AGENA

Problematic Love (Rogue Series Book 8)Problematic Love by Lara Ward Cosio
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

If you haven’t read this series you need to start from the beginning. The reason I say this is because not only is this series really really great, but it is intense and in depth. You cannot miss anything. Especially these two characters, Danny Boy and Amelia. Danny Boy is Shay’s brother and is the bad boy that Shay continues to try and keep out of trouble due to his drug addiction. Amelia is Danny Boy’s therapist. So the conflict goes without saying…How do these two match up? How is Amelia able to be everything that Danny Boy needs, the girlfriend and the therapist? Danny is also struggling to be worthy enough for Amelia. He is so wrapped up in his own self-worth that he may mess things up. However, let’s not forget how when these two get together how they connect and know how to steam things up. This story is definitely intense and so good. You get sucked in and trapped just like you do with the rest of the series. Needless to say I loved it! I wouldn’t change anything about it at all!
