This book was very bland and run of the mill, with like a million uninteresting characters and a silly blend of romance tropes that made me laugh like..Show More » crazy.
Aidan is a Fae Lord pirate turned corporate raider. *snorts*. He's lived more than 1,000 years but when he finds the "only woman he's ever loved", he's too busy with other stuff and lets her go without a fight. Elise is also supposedly deeply in love but doesn't try to work with Aidan on their issues. Neither ever mentions their feelings to the other so each is left with the thought that the other doesn't love them.
As you can see, neither character acts as if they are really in love. If you really love a person, you don't give up at the first opportunity!
Most of the plot was spent rehashing what happened in the first book and introducing so many characters that it was impossible to determine who was who. The seemingly insurmountable problems that separated these two in the first place weren't even an issue so that tells you that if only they had talked a bit, everything could have been avoided.
The murky issue of Dina's paternity is the author's way of having a secret baby plot without blaming Elise. All I can say is that it didn't work.
The narration was good. I'll listen to another book narrated by Gabra Zackman but definitely not continuing this series.
The last book in the series really brings thing together, and wraps things up beautifully. I have truly enjoyed this whole world, it is a bit sad that..Show More » it is now over. Perhaps we get a jump forward in time and have the children's stories.
Lana and Des are a great pair. They are drawn to each other and have more a friends with benefits joining. The feelings develop over the extended time and tense situation they fall into. I lived their witty banter and fun dynamic.
The story this time is really great, I would have lived to see more dimensions. The pace was fantastic and never felt rushed or a lull. The mixed narrative definitely helped keep you in the loop of what both characters are thinking.
Yummy steamy action, I love it when passion just explodes. Even on the run they manage to sneak in smexy time, going so far as to break a bed!!!
I listened to the audio book an the narrator is terrific. She helps the story move along and take life. She gives you very happy ears!!
