5 stars

This set blew me away! Leaving her overprotective family behind to go to school, Taylor meets Hayze, who has a story all his own, and its a roller coaster of emotions from beginning to end. This is a little dark and does deal with addiction but I’m ok with those things but others may not be.

I really was sucked into this series and a change of pace for me as of late, i will be reading more from this author, I just cant get my thoughts into words to do this justice.

5 Stars!

This series was remarkable. The storyline was perfect and the characters, very well developed. I love that the first 2 books are told from Taylor’s point of view and the 3rd book is from Hayze’s point of view. Having 2 different viewpoints always makes for a more interesting story. It’s also nice to see what each character is feeling in different moments.
Hayze is a typical bad boy, he has a lot of baggage and tries to bury it all by sleeping around, drugs and alcohol, he just doesn’t care. Then he meets the one girl that makes life seem worth it and he starts to get scared that his secrets will all be revealed. He spends time lying to Taylor and hurting her many times, but everyone has their own problems to work through. It is very frustrating wanting Hayze to share his secrets with Taylor, I knew in my mind she would accept him through it all. These books are filled with so many ups and downs, addiction, obsession, lies, drama, it all came together for a perfect series. My heart ached so many times, but I love when a book can completely crush me. I could not put these books down and I highly recommend them to any romance lover.

The Hazed Series by Brittany Tarkington is a great story about two opposite personalities and the connection they forge.
I was intrigued by this series from the moment I read the blurb. I instantly knew I wanted to find out all about the secrets Hayze was hiding. Normally with a series like this I split it up and read something else in between each book. However with this series I found myself just continuing on through as I had to find out what was going to happen.
As I was reading the series I loved the fact that it was a YA college romance and yet it felt like so much more than that – deeper and more mature. It actually made the feelings the characters were experiencing more relatable.
This was a great series and a brilliant way to discover a new author.

The Hazed Box Set contains books 1-3 of the Hazed Series by Brittany Tarkington. I had never read any of Brittany Tarkington’s work so was unsure what to expect. OMG! I was taken on the most amazing of journeys.
This box set is unlike anything I’ve ever read. It’s definitely not a cute, sweet romance, far from it! It’s powerful, hard hitting and really gives you all the feels. You could correctly say that this is an opposites attract love story, but it has so, so much more than this. It deals with addiction and all the highs (no pun intended) and lows that go with dealing with addiction and obsession.
I adored both Taylor and Hayze but there were so many times that I wanted to slap them both and bang their heads together. Their story had me gripped from the very start, all the way through their traumatic journey, right up to the very end.
The parts of the book that were written from Hayze point of view (all of book 3 is as well as other chapters throughout) I found most harrowing. My heart truly broke for him on so many occasions. Deep down he just wanted to be loved and feel worthy of being loved.
I have read that there will also be a 4th book in this series and I cannot wait to read it.

4 out of 4 stars

The Hazed series written by Brittany Tarkington is the first book that I have read by this author and it won’t be the last. This is a college romance with secrets, lies, obsession, and addiction all plays a part in this story. The characters are great and well written the plot is great.

Book one
Taylor Thompson life is controlled by a small town and strict father so when she receives an acceptance letter to a university an hour away from home, she can taste her freedom. When Taylor gets to campus, she finds a local bar that’s hiring a waitress she applies and gets the position. However, one bartender leaves her questioning the acceptance of her new job.

Hayze Clark, his dark eyes pierce through your soul, drawing you near. The tattoos bellowing down his arms and the scar lining his left eyebrow keep you at a safe distance; his carefree attitude lures Taylor in. At first, she’s excited for the new, perfect distractions to pull herself from misery.

The closer she gets, the more secrets are revealed, lies are told, and tears are shed. Their relationship falters and Taylor is left unsure if she’s willing to pick up the pieces of this broken guy.

Book two
Taylor spends winter break away; she is certain she is over Hayze. As the first day of spring semester starts and suddenly, he’s everywhere. They share classes, they work together, and now, unfortunately, they live together, Taylor finds herself kicked out f her dorm during the semester she has no where to go so she goes to Hayze and he welcomes her with open arms.
Taylor is determined to keep him at arm’s length, so she lays out the ground rules, but Little does she know, he has other motives for letting her stay.

He still has his secrets and not everything is black and white in his world. Will Hayze ever tell Taylor his secrets? Will his secrets destroy Taylor? Will living together make them or break them?

Book three
Hayze has accepted the universe loathed him long ago. He was accustomed to covering his past and constantly anxious mind with girls, drugs, and alcohol. When Taylor Thompson comes stumbling into a bar, he’s core is shaken. For the first time in his life, he begins to question if what he is doing is right. He begins to develop feelings for her, and It appears she’s into him as well.
He doesn’t want her to know about his past so instead of him showing her that he care’s he lashes out. He is afraid someone will tell her the truth, he’s constantly on edge. With his odd behavior, and constant need to keep her at arm’s length, she begins to connect the dots.

This was a great box set and I highly recommend it.

The Hazed Series Books 1-3 by Brittany Tarkington is the first books I have read by this author. I was not sure what to expect but I can tell you that I was blown away. Tarkington plot line follows a tight grip on the reader. The characters are complex and interesting. The subject of the three books is one of obsession and addiction. The series is based on a relationship between Taylor and Hayze. Taylor just received an acceptance letter to the college that is just far away enough to let her feel herself. Taylor has never been so free before, due to her strict father and small town. She applied for a job as a waitress in a local bar and that is where she meets Hayze. This is where the stories get interesting. In book one it was the initial introduction of Taylor and Hazye. Through books 2-3 it is about the relationship of Taylor and Hazye. The relationship has many different characteristics some healthy and some not so healthy. How will Taylor handle being away and on her own? What will become of Taylor and Hazye’s relationship? Will the skeletons come out of the closet or will they remain hidden from one another? Will Taylor and Hazye become a couple? You will have to read these books to find that information out.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Hazed Series (Books 1-3) by Brittany Tarkington is a college romance with a bad boy. There are three books in one and each one is very emotive. With lots of secrets and lies, pain and suffering, broken hearts and hate, love and understanding. Brittany has done a great job in the world she has created and the characters draw you to them. There is the normal YA angst but with these two characters it goes way deeper. They each have their own demons to struggle with. The first two books are told in the female POV and the third book is told in the male POV.

Taylor has never been allowed to be a normal teenager girl. Her home life has been under the rule of a “preacher”, her father. Now she is in college and out of home she vows that no one will rule her with an iron thumb ever again. When she finds a job there is one person who could threaten her sanity and her heart. All she wants is for him to let her in but sometimes love is just not enough.

Hayze is one person all the girls want, but he is one and done. He has secrets that he won’t share, he draws you in and throws you away, but that doesn’t stop him from getting what he wants. When he sets his eyes on the new girl, his entire outlook on life changes. If only he could give up his ways but he won’t give up the one thing that makes him sane but drives him mad. As much as he realises he is no good for her, he can’t keep away, she is his obsession.

I really enjoyed this series as it wasn’t your normal YA romance college story. I just wanted to wrap Hayze up and sort him out. He wasn’t a bad guy he just has so much baggage to sort through. If you like college romance stories then you will love this one.
