This was one of my favorite books in the series. While Christen and Raven deal with issues from their past they come to realize just how much they mean to each other.
!spoiler alert!
The two finally declare their relationship to Victor and decide to make their feelings for each other clear. Other characters in the book also find a resolution to their personal issues from past books. The team grows stronger in the end and things finally end on a positive note for everyone!

There are three of them. Three boys. We’re friends, neighbors, our lives linked through disaster, fear, and pain. I love them all. Not sure I can live without them. Can we just stay friends? Can we ignore the desire flaring when we’re around each other? Can I kiss one and not the other? I can’t choose. Don’t want to choose. And I’m not sure they can, either. This story will either end up in heartache, or as any story should - in a happy ending.

This book had the potential to be awesome but the author spent way too much time on internal dialogue that was often redundant. The first 5 hours were a PG teenage romance soap. I almost gave up 3 times. Eventually, it turns X-rated. However, I just don’t buy that 3 hot 19 year olds were complete virgins (with one exception bc of sexual abuse/no consent sex with a minor. Then they suddenly start having orgies with bisexual sex. It’s not very practical and I thought the guys were really gay but loved the girl so she was the center. This book is not for most people; even those who like multiple partners. Not to mention I personally couldn’t stand the female narrator (valley girl accent) and I’m not super picky about most narrators.

I remember everything, only now I wish I didn't. When the fog is sucked away from my mind like smoke through a vacuum, the truth that has been beyond my reach for months finally reveals itself. But the relief I thought I would feel never comes, and I'm more afraid now than I was the morning I woke up handcuffed in King's bed. Because with the truth comes dark secrets I was never meant to know. I don't know if I'm strong enough to resist the magnetic pull toward King that grows stronger every day.

The writing is great. The characters are well rounded and developed. It isn’t your typical romance but it evokes more emotion than such. This is the conclusion to Doe and Kings story and it doesn’t disappoint. Although, both of the main characters continue to struggle. In the end they get their happily ever after despite the interference of bad characters and negative circumstances. This isn’t your typical soft romance, so if you can’t handle abuse and violence, then you probably won’t enjoy this series. To everyone else this is a great read/listen!

When Lily Jacobs was born, she inherited Fazire - a genie. Her family had three wishes and they'd only ever used one so Fazire was stuck in the human world. This worked since he'd become a member of the family anyway. Even with a genie, Lily's young life wasn't perfect. To escape the kids making her miserable at school, Lily buried herself in romance novels. One day, when the teasing was just too much, she used one of her wishes.

I really wanted to love this story but it was just plain ridiculous. It was like an adult version of a Disney movie. The main female character was too perfectly naive and sad. It had no true hint of reality and the male character was a truly sad attempt at a bad boy. Please don’t waste your money on this!

First, the narrator was Horrible! If you want to continue it’s best to change the speed to 1.25 to 1.5, it really helps! Next the story wasn’t to bad but the sex scenes were PG. so not only do you deal with the sad, smelly life of the 1200’s, you don’t even get hot steamy romance. If you like a Clean, historical romance with simple dry sex scenes than this is for you. Otherwise, don’t waste your credit.

Pierce Lancaster is bad news. Spoiled. Entitled. Sexy as - he's exactly what I don't want in my life. What I don't need. I'm not the girl he knew before. I've changed. But he hasn't. He's trouble filled with empty promises. I've come too far to fall back. Yet I can't seem to stay away. I can't say no. I am addicted to Pierce Lancaster.

I truly felt this was a fair portrayal of the inner workings of the Trump White House over the coarse of the last year and a half. My only criticism is the lack of better background on the events during which different people gave there testimony of events; as they saw or heard them. The timeline also jumped around a bit, it didn’t always flow in a natural progression. Otherwise, a honest job, well done.

The Beast had Belle. Killian Black has me. How I got here doesn’t matter, even though he says it does. Says it was my choice. He doesn’t get it, though. It wasn’t ever a choice for me. And now, he’s changing the rules. The agreement was one month. For 30 days, I’d be his. He’s no longer satisfied with my body alone, though. He wants my soul, too. Wants every part of me. And even though I can pretend I’m safe when I lie beneath him, this man does something to me. Something wicked. A thing that will break me.

I like the bad boy who learns to become more and save the girl. Even though he couldn’t save his own sister from rape and abuse, he finds a way to help cella move on. The story is pretty good. My only complaint is a lack of real development between the main characters. I kinda feel like their emotions and story were fast tracked without proper development. Otherwise a great read to pass the time!

Lyn Conway is a hot mess. She's past due on her rent, can't get clients to take her paranormal investigations business seriously, and she's a demon hunter who broke the ultimate rule. She didn't mean to save a demon's life. She thought she was saving a cute guy from a horrific attack. Being bound to a gorgeous demon isn't all that bad, until women who look suspiciously similar to Lyn start dropping dead with a demonic seal carved into their flesh. The tables have turned. The hunter is being hunted. Fortunately, Lyn lives with her number one suspect.

This story is funny and Witty. It’s main characters show promise. It’s set up for a series with this first book giving you a taste of things to come. The Romance part is a slow burn. Sam and Lyn are just starting to connect and realize they might have romantic feelings despite the inherent odds against them. Mainly that he is a demon and she is a daughter of Eve; who’s main purpose is to kill demon kind. We soon learn that there is more to Same then meets the eye. For starters he is more angel than demon still. The sides become blurred once more information is presented. I can’t wait to see how things develop. Only negatives in this book are the cliffhanger and mediocre narration. I hope book to has much more in the romance department!

Not the best MC romance I’ve read to date. It was just too soft to be very believable. Many of the characters lacked true depth making them pretty cookie cutter. I just couldn’t relate with them. Personally I prefer a novel that inspires real emotion with a intricately devised plot. This, book was kinda bland for me but if you enjoy a simple happy love story then this is probably your cup of tea.
