4.5 fabulous stars!
I have loved every other book in this series so I went in all business with this one.
Also: LOOK AT THAT COVER!
Stay with me here on this review. It won’t be long it will be spoiler free. I am not going to lie…it didn’t start off so great for me. The chemistry was there but I didn’t feel it and it felt a little forced. But as the story went on there was definitely a connection between Trent and Edie and I totally got all my feels and then some.
For me, even though there was delicious dirty talk and serious smexy times, there was still such a huge slow burning romance brewing in the background. I loved the build up, and it made all the small touches so meaningful because at first I didn’t think we were going to get any. So this had everything. I will tell you that some of the sexy stuff felt like it was said/done just for shock value and for the sake of trying to make a book that was “hot”….but it didn’t need to be in there and I just kept going because of the romance and attraction.
I was really getting into Trent and Edie’s love affair, and boom, the plot also got really good. It almost felt like it came on suddenly and it was really intense. In the blink of an eye I went from really liking the story to absolutely loving it.
The ending was fabulous and the best part of the story. Hot and heavy went to heart clenching please hug me wonderful. I loved the epilogue, but as usual I am greedy and wanted even more. I got my HEA and then some, but I love this world and don’t want it to end!
Looks like I have to read Bane next.
