but we totally swear it did not influence the review**
Celeste: Team Logan
Ana: Team Gage
Jag: Team Gage!
First thoughts before we even read a single word:
Celeste: Yahhhhh Mama. I love the cover and this is from Logan and Gage’s POV?!?! Sign. Me. Up.
Ana: I can’t wait to see what these boys have to say! I love being able to read a story from a different angle!
Jag: The cover is hott and I am a SUCKER for the boys POV. Hear that authors, I’m easy money when it comes to getting inside the boys
The story, how it was written:
Celeste: Holy sex on the brain! *whispers* I love it. These boys are a little bit naughty and I’m a little bit likey.
Ana: Logan and Gage do not monitor their thoughts…nor do they watch their words. I love that they’re naughty and straightforward and…well…boys!!
Jag: 24/7 sexy-time thoughts. I loved it, there’s no filter when you crawl into these boy’s brains and it’s spicey.
Expectations we had and if they were met:
Celeste: I LOVED Ethereal so the bar was set pretty high for this novel. I kind of expected it to surpass the original. And it did.
Ana: I wasn’t sure what to expect since I was about to, in essence, reread Ethereal. But I was very pleasantly surprised. I learned a few things and I witnessed conversations that made the story richer for me.
Jag: I loved both of these boys so it was a true treat to find out what they were going through when Skyla came to town. I did wonder if this book would be as readable if you hadn’t read Ethereal so I’m going to recommend you read it before tackling these boys *wink*
Feelings about the characters, how did they stay the same/change:
Celeste: Logan is “the bad boy”. I think I loved him even more with this book and I didn’t know that was possible. He is one dirty boy, but he truly is drawn to Skyla and genuinely falling for her.
Ana: hmmmm…this is a tough one because I basically always wanted Logan to just get the heck out of Gage’s way when I first read the books but I did learn quite a bit about what goes on in his mind and I may like him just a little bit more now!
Jag: I have to admit, I think I like Logan a little less after reading this. I think knowing what he knows he should step aside <— vague non-spoilerish comment lol
PS, foot-long *runs away* <— Ana and Celeste giggle madly here!!
Celeste: He is “the nice guy”, and while I loved getting in his head he was just not meant to be with Skyla. I know he would disagree, but he was still just the means to an end for me and he is only going to end up hurt. He is also wayyyyyy pervier than I thought!
Ana: My love for Gage has not changed. Hearing his thoughts in this book made me feel that much more for him. Wanting Skyla and believing that she’s meant for him and then watching her with Logan…I felt his sadness and loved him even more!!
Jag: I ADORE GAGE, ADORE PEOPLE (and remember, I have no soul). He felt like such the underdog throughout this book until the end and then it ENDED *stink-eye Addison* <3
Celeste: She was the same to me. I already had been in her head. I didn’t know she was that gorgeous! It was cool to see that she was not full of herself.
Ana: I’m not sure my opinion of her changed. But I did love seeing her through the boys’ eyes. Understanding how they saw her was great!
Jag: She’s torn and I love her for that, even more because I know I would be too.
What we loved more:
Celeste: I loved the Oliver boys more. I loved their intensity and what were up against even though they tried to still act like normal teens. I also could not get enough of their naughty inner dialogue. More please!!! I also liked the boys thoughts on Chloe…. I thought Logan had really loved her when I read Ethereal, now I know what the deal was.
Ana: I loved learning more about Gage and Logan’s relationship. I enjoyed seeing them interact and hearing them “think” about each other, how close they are and how much they really love each other.
Jag: I loved the little insights into the lives of Gage and Logan when Skyla isn’t around. They’re family, they love each other and they’re stuck in a shit situation <—more vague
Celeste: Um, none. For real!
Ana: I thought that some of the wording used in describing nature, the fog, etc. didn’t feel like words a boy would use. It didn’t diminish my enjoyment of the book but it did cause me to roll my eyes a couple of times.
Jag: I think I was bothered most by the fact that we really didn’t get any more insights into Chloe, those boys know more and need to spill.
Celeste: Well there was no major news flash with this story since I had already read it, but this was just so delicious. It really rounded out the series for me. Thank you, Addison!
Ana: Of course, nothing new happened because the story is already written, but I feel like I know more about these characters. I feel like I’ve been let in on little secrets about the relationships and it makes me wonder what these boys can tell me about the rest of the books!
Jag: I LOVED the freshness of getting to see the POV of the 2 boys fighting for the girl, we never get that. We always read about how the girl is feeling. I REALLY enjoyed this book and WANT MORE, don’t leave us HANGING ADDISON, it’s GAGE’S TURN!
- “You’ll have your wick wet by midnight”
- “he should point his hard-on in another direction”
- “Maybe next time we’ll get the penetration part right”
- “The small dimple hedging in her cheek has me ticking to life in my boxers.”
- “I adjust my jeans, trying to get the stallion back in the stall for the evening.”
- “Maybe it’s not such a good idea to let my primal instincts take over…Something tells me I won’t have a say in the matter – and that ‘something’ just so happens to be a foot-long hard-on trying to rip from my Levis.”
- “I glance over at the bathroom. I think I’ll alleviate a little tension myself before tracking down Skyla.”
- “I don’t want her to think I dragged her all teh way up here to maul her – but God, how I would love to maul her.”
