Everything. It was exciting, suspense, secrets, and some was comical. I loved it.
The entire plot was great!
When Raines father had her in the warehouse, and she drew strength from within herself and fought for her life.
No. Every scene had something exhilarating, funny, and all around good read.
Is there going to be a book 4. I was left hanging with the mysterious guy waiting g in the ER with Liam, Mason, and the other patrons (who I think is Raine's brother River. And then the authors ended with the news that she's pregnant. Who's baby is it Hammers, or Liams. Inquiry Minds Wants to Know.
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
There's been a years gap between book 2 and 3 and I remember clearly all the wonderful characters and the bitter-sweet situations they found themselves in..... unfortunately I can't say that about very many Trilogies out there with such long gaps in between. And it's because of the strong and loving characters which have each been expertly crafted by the skilled writing team.... keep it going girls please. Liam and Macen (aka Hammer) have finally sorted their feelings out and are willing to share being a Dom to their Sub Raine and this book picks up after they have all spent a blissful and very tiring night together in a log cabin retreat.
But in the early hours of the morning their new found peaceful and idyllic lifestyle is threatened when Liam's ex wife causes havoc at the Club, she's not alone and is demanding Liam return. They all race back but, even though Liam and Macen have asked for truthfulness and openness from Raine, the truth is the last thing they want to subject her to but moods quickly change, tensions run high, clues build up, Raine stumbles on the shocking secret and insecurities and jelousies start to rock the fragile foundations of their newly built relationship so eventually things start to break apart. Raine's evil Father is also threatening to reveal secrets of his own and, in the end, he is the most dangerous and deadly enemy of them all.
There are tender loving sex scenes but these are heavily outweighed by the main characters dilemmas, feelings and the right and wrong choices they each have to make in order to protect, trust and heal one another. This series isn't just erotica, no.... it's a touching, romantic and heartwarming story about three people who desperately love each other, try to support one-another and, when the going gets tough, are there for each other no matter the cost.
Worth a credit? Triple POV's. a good narrator, a captivating plot that's full of romance, angst, drama and heartache with a few good sex scenes too (although, IMO, not as hot as book 2) which made this a very creditworthy listen. And, although things are tied up nicely in the end there could have been an Epilogue however there is talk of a 4th book so..... YAYE, YIPPEE & YES YES YES (whilst doing cartwheels and jumping for joy too).
Full of suspense and intrigue with erotic love of two men. Raine is a submissive with a tendency to hide instead of being honest! He men work at making her realize she is strong and capable but still theirs. She needs to truly let go and BE, and they will take care of her. She learns the hard way!
I can't wait for the next book. This book was too perfect! At first Raine was ticking me off with insecurities but the fact that Liam and Hammer can always pull her back in is always great. There were some parts that made my stomach turn and almost in tears. You are literally sitting on the edge hoping everything works out. The ending will truly leave you hanging but as they say Patience is a Virtue. Expect a lot of the things to come our the closet and many surprises to shock you. Great book!!!
Good Books Don't Promote Violence
While incredibly well written, the plot of this book is stupid and revolting,as it attempts to romanticize sexual violence. And stupid because Liam;s vile ex-wife is portrayed as a major problem for Liam and Macen, - unlikely as these "Doms" would just have beaten her senseless and allowed their sadist friends to kill her. Problem solved!
Raine is a smart and sassy but sadly broken twenty something woman who believes it's normal for men to be abusive assholes. After being physically and sexually assaulted by her father, Raine allows herself to be brutalized by Macen and Liam in an effort to earn their love. How pathetic...
Macen and Liam are self absorbed & cruel assholes who take advantage of Raine's desire to be loved and accepted. It's revolting when these 2 sociopaths enjoy inflicting emotional and physical pain on Raine, while pretending to care about her. I hoped that Raine would eventually learn self-respect and find a real man but no such luck.
The character of Beck, a sadist doctor, was particularly creepy. As if a man who enjoys hurting people could be a dedicated healer with the capacity to care about another human being.. It was also ironic that Liam & Macen resented Raine's father for his horrible treatment of Raine while they wanted to torture and degrade her too..
