Author: N.N. Britt

Genre: New Adult Romance / Coming of Age

Severance Playlist

They say first love doesn't last. Alana's ends on the night her boyfriend Dakota dies in a deadly shooting at a Portland club.

In an attempt to look for ways to deal with her grief, Alana reaches out to Dakota's older brother Mikah, who's struggling with moving on himself.

Both damaged beyond repair, neither Alana or Mikah know how to cope with their loss. What's worse, they have zero idea how to handle the unexpected feelings they start developing for each other.

Trigger warning: themes of gun violence, depression, PTSD. Reader discretion advised.

Severance was my first book by N.N. Britt and let me say she blew me away with this hauntingly real new adult romance. 
Severance tackles sensitive topics such as shooting and PTSD. N.N. Britt has created a very authentic story which slowly crept under my skin and wouldn’t leave. 
Alana and Mikah survives a shooting but 24 others don’t including Mikah’s younger brother Dakota who’s also Alana’s boyfriend.

Severance is Alana’s story. Her before and after. Both parts equally important to the story, for Alana and who she was and now is becoming. 
She and Mikah are forever changed after that fateful night. They now share a connection and even though Alana didn’t have a friendship with Mikah she seeks him out. To still have something of her boyfriend and for the feeling Mikah gives her. Anything but lost and the endless disconnect she feels whenever she’s around her deeply religious parents or her best friend Jess, who’s also a survivor, but on a different path than Alana.

The author portrays Alana with an authenticity that felt too real at times. Alana and her anxiety, nightmares and wanting justice for her boyfriend and the other victims was flawlessly portrayed. The feeling of being lost and scared was something that was always present throughout the story. 
Alana and Mikah share a connection but it’s so much more than that. The Before and After chapters just work. They gave me a sense of who Alana was and how she saw Mikah. It’s not just Alana substituting Dakota for his older brother Mikah. It’s about moving on and finding comfort in others that helps you do that. Mikah is what Alana needs but it’s not easy when he’s also battling his own demons. Their chemistry is electrifying and always sizzling just beneath the surface. When they give in to one another it’s like a lightning bolt. 

N.N. Britt is a new to me author but after finishing Severance she’s an author I will look forward to reading more from. Very impressive and fabulous.

One glance across a dim, crowded room. That’s all it took for my life to change.
One moment. One look. One touch. From him…
The man with no name. He is everywhere I go and everywhere I turn. He is in my thoughts and daydreams. He’s a constant want and need I can’t escape.
I don’t want to. 
The closer he gets the more I crave him. I crave his intensity and his fire. I crave his biting words and rough touches. He’s unlike anyone I’ve ever known, and his touch is unlike anything I’ve ever felt.
He unravels me. My life. Everything I’ve ever known, until all that’s left are secrets that never seem to end. 
Until all that’s left is ashes and blood. 
Until we burn.

I had such a great time being in the company of Leo, Cassie, Christoffer and Arabella. Burn was a thrilling and entertaining story that kept me glued to the pages. I simply couldn’t get enough of these characters. 
The story kicks of with a death and from that point on it’s full steam ahead. Cassie and Leo are freaking amazing and intoxicating. From their first stare off to them slowly getting to know one another to them getting involved emotionally and intimately. Their chemistry is off the charts hot and Leo has a deliciously dirty mouth. A catnip of mine and couldn’t stop drooling and wishing I was in Cassie’s shoes. 
Leo has a few skeletons in his closet and they have made him the man he is today. Flawed, tough and ruthless and when it comes to Cassie it’s doubled cause he will do anything to make sure she’s safe and his. I didn’t like Cassie at first. She came off as a little naive but she slowly comes out of her shell and finds her voice thanks to Leo. 
Burn has its twists and turns along the way and I enjoyed that cause it sets up book 2 perfectly. An ending I didn’t expect but am so excited about cause I get to be with these characters for another book.

“This story is one of the most romantic I have read in a long time!” --Words We Love By Blog

“I can’t even with this book. Talk about swooning from start to finish.”--OMGReads Blog

“It’s sooo sweet, perfect, romantic as hell, intimate and the swoon-worthy anticipation of what might happen is everything you could want in a friends to more romance.” --B.C. Booklover
Bexley, You’re out of town, but our date is tomorrow. Adam came over tonight and asked me if I’d marry you. Typical random, out-of-the-blue Adam BS. It got me thinking, though, about you and me, and what we’re doing. We’re taking a huge risk with our friendship, and I can’t help but think that means something greater than either of us are considering. Would we have jumped into this if we weren’t ready for more? After a night full of reflection, I can honestly tell you . . . I wouldn’t have. My feelings for you have been growing for the last ten years. I know we’re not there yet, not at that place in our relationship, or as the case may be, non-relationship since we’re still working through these dates. But I wanted you to know that someday, when the time is right, I will absolutely marry you. In fact, there’s nothing I’d like more. After date seven, you have to make a choice. To keep seeing me or to move on and start seeing someone else. I’m hoping it will be to keep going, but maybe I’ll have a better understanding of what you want after the third date. After all, that seems to be the defining date in most of your dating cycles. How about I make you a promise? Don’t break my heart, and I will never break yours.
