Penelope Price is a young woman who is utterly scarred and broken. She has been Cut. Residing with her best friend Rosalie since the sudden demise of her long term relationship, she finds herself severed from the world she once lived for. After months of Rosie suffering failured attempts of trying to drag Penny back into some form of reality, finally, it happens. A nightclub in Sydney leads to a strange encounter with Jay, a musician who at first meeting seems dangerous, but for unknown reasons there is an unconscious draw. When her inner turmoil dramatically ruins the night, it appears she may be worse off than where she started. Will her wound ever heal? Uninvited interest from the mysterious stranger messes further with Penny's emotional state, resulting in more confusion than comfort. He seems to be hiding behind his own secretive walls and she isn't sure she can trust him. The sudden return of her ex, Evan, who is persistent to fill in the reasons for their demise, exposes the shocking truth. Ultimately sending her into the lowest point of her existence. Does she find her definitive end in the dramatic final scene of this story? Has she been Cut?

First off, I had never heard of Kathleen Maree. But now? She is hands down one of my fave indie authors. The Cut series is definitely not your predictable, cookie-cutter contemp romance. When you start the novel, you really don't know where it will go and the entire emotionally-charged journey just keeps you guessing the entire series. Yes there are a couple of novice errors, but you will get so lost in this story that they wont even bother you. Loved. This. Series.

Cut series - loved this debut!

To get the full impact of Cut, you must read the entire series. Because yes, Penny is depressed, but oh lord do things get interesting! Loved this contemp romance. If you enjoy a little suspense, romance and a swoonworthy rocker thrown into the mix - you will love this!

Wow did I not see that ending coming! Whilst the story starts a little slow, I LOVED seeing Penny begin to build her new life. Everyone deals with life changing things differently and I honestly felt all of her pain. Already started book two and its already a page turner! Loved it!!

This book was ok, I found it hard to follow and quite boring to be honest. I did not understand Penny one but and thought being depressed as she was for months was so extreme, yes we have all had break ups but we get on with life. The characters were flat! The book was ok but hard to follow and a bit amateur-ish.

Penelope Price had her world shattered at the front door. Utterly broken, she goes into basically a "living coma" for several months. Thankfully her best friend/roommate Rosalie keeps her from completely succumbing to her grief. When she finally decides to leave the house and join the land of the living, she and Rosie hit a trendy nightclub in Sydney. Here Penny encounters Jay, the soulful musician playing the VIP room she and her friends are occupying. He is mysterious and cold, but there is something about him that draws Penny in - and he feels the same way. Penny is certainly NOT ready for any sort of relationship but Jay is quietly relentless and she is unable to say no. Penny and Jay are working their way, albeit very timidly, into getting to know each other when the unthinkable happens. Evan-the-ex shows up, claiming to want to come clean and win Penny back. Can she forgive Evan? What about Jay? ARRRGGGHHHH. This book had me on absolute pins and needles most of the time, but in a good way. It sucked me in from the first few pages and kept me entrenched. A very, VERY good story; i can hardly believe this is Kathleen Maree's first work. What I liked: ALL the details. The author was extremely descriptive about the main characters, both their physical attributes and their emotive states. I appreciate that in a book. I felt very connected to Penny, Jay and Rosie throughout the story and even got a good feel for the secondary characters. The twists. Without giving up spoilers, there were a couple of things that absolutely threw me for a loop. I read a lot and consider myself somewhat hard to surprise, but GOOD GRIEF - at several points I was left mouth gaping in utter shock. The flow. Im not sure how to say this any other way than this book was really beautifully written. It was very smooth and almost.. artistic? What would I change? NOTHING. Honestly, its a 5 star book all the way around for me. My reading tastes generally fall into romance/erotica and this book was a bit different from what I normally choose for myself. That being said, I couldnt have enjoyed it more. It was not just a story that I could pick up, read a few chapters and come back for more later. It was very engrossing and really kept me glued to the kindle for HOURS. Kathleen Maree has, in my opinion, enormous talent as an author. I feel very privileged that she asked me to read/review this book for her and I am definitely looking forward to more of her works. I give CUT 5*****wickedgoodstars and will be happily recommending it!- asw
