Sloane

How many times can a person fall down and still get back up? How many times can things go wrong before you just give up?

I’ve lost everything. My home, my job, my purpose in life—everything has been turned upside down. But while life hasn’t exactly turned out the way I would have liked it to, I wouldn’t change a thing. If things were different, I wouldn’t have Lacey. I wouldn’t have Michael.

But most importantly, I wouldn’t have him.

I’ve realized what I feel. He knew it before I did. Only one question remains:

Is he capable of feeling the same way?

Zeth

Secrets are a prison, and I have been behind bars for years. Sloane Romera has been turning keys in all of my locks, throwing light on corners of my mind that I thought would forever be shrouded in darkness. Or at least I had hoped would be.

I have done so many wrongs in this life, and yet this woman has forgiven me. She’s done something I never thought possible—she has learned to understand me, and she hasn’t run. She’s amazed me. She’s saved me. She’s fallen in love with me.

If it’s within my power, I’m about to do the same for her.

Holy cow, what was that and how many curve balls did we just get thrown? Each one of these novellas gets better and better, and each escalates in ways I never predicted. Way back when it appeared that the storyline was so straightforward…but it’s taken many twists and turns and I’m still trying to figure out which ones are real and which ones aren’t…who is a bad guy and who isn’t. I kind of love this. The romance also takes a deeper turn, which makes my heart is so happy! Definitely a great read and I’m sad there’s only more more book left.

Sloan and Zeth’s romance intensified as their emotional connection grew. As I’ve mentioned before, the pacing of this “opposites attract” love affair is divine. It’s such a natural progression, even though there has been nothing normal about their relationship. The sex has always been there, but this time I really felt the close bond these two shared. It’s so well written and a testament to Ms Hart’s talent. I know I might sound like a broken record, but as in the previous books I found some of the sex to be too much. However, as I read I reminded myself it was labeled as such before I started. I can’t get behind pain, but again for the sake of the characters I went with it as it was something they were both into. It doesn’t overpower the story, but it’s definitely there.

While Sloan came to terms with what she truly wanted out of life and the things (and people!) that made her feel alive, this time it was Zeth’s turn. Zeth made some self realizations and faced a lot of things that make him reflect, and boy oh boy did it make him nervous. But let me also tell you that I realllllly love a sexy and dangerous man who shows his vulnerability. There were many moments when he would either shut down or embrace the goodness. I absolutely loved it.

There are curve balls thrown ALL OVER THE PLACE. A few things I saw coming, like Pippa, but a lot of other things were geniusly crafted. The DEA. Lacey. Rebel. Charlie. Alexis. All of these things!!!!

Once again the ending was a perfect place to stop this story. Part of me is sad there is only one more installment left, but at the same time I can’t wait to see how all this crazy plays out. What a tangled web that has yet to be unraveled.

Rec it? Yes! If you love a romantic suspense this is a great addition for your TBR and these serial novellas move along at a great clip.

Happy reading!
