Avery Nolan’s father has never been a part of her life.

As a result, she finds herself becoming a caretaker. Always trying to please other people, willing to tuck her own concerns aside for the happiness of others.

She is selfless.

She is a nurturer.

On the outside, it appears Kade Thomas has it all, but no one can understand the guilt and ache he feels daily.

He is haunted by his past. 

Every time he closes his eyes, he finds himself reliving the same nightmare, over and over again.

He blames himself for the loss of Jenna.

He pushed her too far and she paid the price. 

Avery saw something special in Kade, from the first day she met him—she could feel it. 

But the darkness that consumes him is…


Will she finally be the one to break down the walls he’s built around his heart and soul?
Or will she find some walls are just Indestructible…

Available for FREE with Kindle Unlimited!

Note: Uncontrollable is book THREE in The Key West Series by CA Harms. This series is made up of inter-connecting standalones, so I DO recommend you read the books in order. All the characters are present in all the books and we get glimpses of their stories throughout the installments. :) All THREE BOOKS are available on Amazon! Read them for FREE on Kindle Unlimited:

Okay… so about Uncontrollable. Cue fangirling.
Upon finishing Inevitable (book 2) I was SURE that Easton was my favorite male character in The Key West Series. I was SURE. Positive. Yep. He was my man! Or so I thought….because then, I started Uncontrollable and really got to know Kade.


Kade STOLE MY ENTIRE HEART!!!!! In fact, you can all just call me Mrs. Kade from now on. ;) Sweet baby Jesus! What a phenomenal story! CA Harms’ best book to date!!  I cannot express enough how much I loved this book. In fact, I read it in ONE SITTING. I was enthralled from the very first page and my attention did not diminish one bit along the way. I even read in bed!! And if you know me, you know that I can’t ever pull that off. I ALWAYS fall asleep. No matter how good the book is, I ALWAYS fall asleep reading in bed. Well, not with Uncontrollable. It was THAT amazing! It’s by far my FAVORITE CA Harms book! :)

“He’s spent so much time in the darkness, I think he can’t remember what it feels like to be happy.”

CA made my heart ACHE and break quite a few times while reading. Kade had been carrying loads of guilt for so many years that he did not know how to live otherwise. A tragic accident had scarred him beyond words, and had made him want to only exist rather than really live his life. Falling in love was out of the question, and Avery did not make it easy for him to keep that promise to himself. The attraction, sexual tension, and chemistry between Avery and Kade was off the charts! But Kade stuck to just flirting (heavily so!) and nothing else. He could not bring himself to have more with her. He couldn’t. He knew that if he gave into his attraction to Avery, there would be no coming back.

The emotional angst developed in this book was a HUGE plus for me. It kept me on the edge of my seat HOPING for a happy ending, needing Kade to overcome his demons and choose the happiness that he – and Avery – both deserved.

“…living without you isn’t an option.”

Good grief, Kade had me swooning more times than not, and the HOT scenes between him and Avery had me squirming! Wowza! That man. He was so passionate, sexy, alpha…perfect! Now don’t get me wrong….there will be times where Kade will drive you insane. He will piss you off, but be patient with him. Trust me…he makes everything WORTH IT.

Oh, lordy, lord! HEA readers, you need to one-click this third installment in The Key West Series. Really, you MUST. I cannot recommend it highly enough! FIVE STARS!!!!

“She was my angel in the darkness.”



“Here’s the address,” Easton said as he passed the paper over the top of the table toward me. “Bennie said they live in a ranch-style home at the end of the lane.”

Vermont. They stuck around for a few months after the funeral and then picked up and moved thousands of miles away. Running from the place where they saw their daughter everywhere they looked.

“You sure about this, Kade?” Jett asked as he sat down in the booth next to me.

“Yeah, I am. It’s something I have to do. It’s the last step before I can say good-bye to Jenna,” I explained as I twisted the paper between my fingers. “I’m ready to move on with Avery, and I can’t do that until I do this.”

My stomach was in knots at the idea of facing Jenna’s parents. I had no idea what to expect, but I wanted to close this chapter.

“I’m gonna need something from you, Jett,” I said as I looked up from my hands.

“And what would that be, brother?” he asked.

“Keep an eye on my girl,” I said, and he grinned widely and nodded as Easton chuckled. “Yeah, I know. You never thought you’d see the day, right?”

Jett placed his hand on my shoulder and patted it.

“Nope, I didn’t, but it looks good on ya.” “What does?” I asked.

“Love, infatuation, whatever you wanna call it,” Easton said.

“Pussy-whipped, henpecked, does it matter how you refer to it?” Jude flopped down in the seat next to Easton, chuckling. “Avery has you wrapped around her pinky, and you are sunk to the deepest depths, brother.”

I smiled. “Where the hell did you come from?”

“I’ve been quietly observing this exchange you three were having.” He leaned back, waiting for me argue with what he had said. But he was right. It was pointless. Avery had me tied up tight, and there was no coming back.


C.A. Harms is like any other addicted reader. She enjoys happy endings and HEA love stories. She hasn't always been a lover of Romance and had once been addicted to a good Mystery. Just recently she has taken on a new liking and now is a full blown Romance novel addict.
