Re--Release!! Consumed by J.C. Hannigan & #Giveaway

by J.C. Hannigan


He's tall, dark, and deliciously handsome.
Not exactly what Harlow is looking for.
Her heart's still stuck on Iain Bentley.
But it's been a painful struggle
 since she last saw him.
Two years of silence and wondering;
 of desperate sleepless longing. 
And Jax Walker is a hard man to resist.
 Just as she's prepared to open herself to new love,
 Harlow's whole world is thrown
 into a painful spiral.

*In this new adult novel, readers are consumed by the collision of past and present. Raw and dark, this emotional minefield is the perfect second book in the continuing story of Harlow Jones.


*I received this book in exchange for an honest review. 

I read this book the day after I read Collide. I had barely started coming out of my book hang-over from the first in the series, when I start the second and boy did it put right back! I can’t decide which book is better out of the two!! One thing that I do know for sure…Harlow Jones is a girl that I wish I could slap silly at times but at others, I want to pull her close and just hug her until she knows that I care. This girl has already gone through so much in her little life! Wow…another 5 STAR book from JC Hannigan. You seriously need to read this series right now!!



Book 1
by J.C. Hannigan

Harlow Jones has a troubled past,
 and a questionable future.
Surrounded by death, tragedy,
 and intrigue,
she is forced to mature long before her time.
Plagued by anxiety and depression, 
she hides her inner turmoil with spite and sarcasm.
Her thick skin is impenetrable…or so she thought.
Until she becomes involved with
her grade twelve English teacher.

*In this exclusive entry into the new adult genre, with raw style that is as dark as it is poignant, Collide presents the ultimate choice: forbidden love or doing the right thing?


*I received this book in exchange for an honest review. 

This is one of the best debut books that I have read from an author. JC Hannigan is an author who can bring forth some of the deepest, ugliest, darkest feelings that we keep pushed down and locked up tight, she draws them out and makes you examine them before releasing you from her grip. From the first few pages, this book had me in its clutches and it didn’t let go until the last page! It was absolutely amazing. A definitely 5 STAR book!



J.C. Hannigan’s love of reading was spawned from a very early age. She inhaled novels with an unquenchable thirst. Eventually, that love of reading turned into a love for writing. She started to pen stories at the tender age of nine while sitting at her white desk, pencil posed over lined paper, writing countless stories about a girl, her best friend, their horses and the adventures they’d have going on trial rides together. Born with a chronic pain bone disorder called Multiple Hereditary Exostoses, she didn’t get to play sports or run amuck like her siblings and peers. Writing kept her company amid a world of surgeries, bad pain days, and isolation. 

She started a blog when she was fifteen-years-old, chronicling the challenges of high school, dating, and coping with her chronic pain bone disorder. That blog went on to win a Bloggie for Best Teen Weblog, and J.C.’s ego inflated quite a bit over it (enough to continuously mention it even today). 

J.C. currently resides in a small town in Ontario with her husband, their two sons, and two dogs. When she isn’t trying to wrangle kids and dogs, she can be found writing. In addition to writing new adult romance and suspense novels, J.C. writes a blog for the MHE Coalition, discussing the struggles of living with Multiple Hereditary Exostoses. She also contributes to several other websites, including her personal blog, the OCH Literary Society, and she is the content manager for Stigma Fighters Canada. Through her writing, J.C. brings to light awareness of mental health and social challenges. Her writing has been described as edgy, bold, poignant, and raw. 

Other hobbies of J.C.’s include hiking, camping, binge-watching shows like Outlander, Game of Thrones, The Vampire Diaries, and The Walking Dead, eating dill pickle chips and daydreaming of travelling around the world. J.C. adores interacting with readers, so don’t hesitate to reach out and say hi! She tries her best to respond to every message.
