Publisher's Summary

When I was little, I dreamed my life would be a fairy tale. But it just so happens that I don't need a knight in shining armor to save me anymore. I'm made of freaking steel.   

It's time for answers. Time for vengeance. And time to finally unmask the notorious V. There's no going back now.

Oh my mercy!

This was so hard to listen to....like a train wreck that you have to see to the end but you can’t believe that you’re still watching. She COULD NOT possibly be so stupid as not to realize who he was. That was absolutely painful to drag out for so long! And with so many obvious close calls. It overshadowed all the good parts of the story. Sigh. I need to find something funny now.

**Eye Roll** Don't Waste Your Time!

This series was painful to get through, many eye rolls on my end... The storyline had such promise, but poorly executed. The book was full of JR. High dialogue, with ADULT themes.. explicit sex, language and situations (Do those things go together, NOPE! Teenage conversations, in adult situations BLEH.) I have been spoiled by authors who really know how to use proper language to tell a story, such as Nora Roberts, Irene Hannon, Robyn Carr, Preston and Child, Mary Higgins Clark.. (Need I go on?). The conversations in the protaginist's head and other characters were redundant, and silly. If you are going to write on mature subject matter, please please get a great editor to support that premise.

The book for the most part was predictable to the ridiculous!

The only reason I stuck it through was to finish the story.

Purely ridiculous.

good but

This was a pretty good series, except for it's very repetative throughout all the books. and main character is really wishy-washy. I think this could have been done in one book. The narrator did a pretty good job, but definitely needs to slow down a little and take a breath. Especially between sentences and paragraphs. I think I hung in because the story is intriguing and I wanted to know how the story played out.

Loved the book, and series!

This book, better yet, this series was so incredibly fantastic that I am actually sad that Summer/Sadie’s story is finished. I loved these characters, every one of them. (Well, with the exception of the villain.) I want to be friends with them. I loved the two “besties” who basically stole some great scenes. I laughed, cried, and even got angry at times. Ivy knows how to pull at your heartstrings and keep you on the edge of your seat. It’s hard to have a favorite character because you want them all to be happy. I thought I loved her first series (The Hunted), but this was my all time favorite. I will definitely be listening to them again.

I am still not used to Elizabeth’s male voices, but she’s so great at everything else that you can give her a free pass on it. 😊

Could have been one book

Author drug it out way to long. I finally gave up and skipped to the end of the 3 rd book. Would have been good if it was one book instead of 3.

Unrealistic Story

This is a 3 part story that could and should have been written all in one book. I always finish books I start, that being the only reason I listened to the complete series. The books are repetitive and unrealistic. The Summer character to not recognize Miles as V even after having sex with “both” and not realizing it’s the same person is just unbelievable. The constant back and forth of I love you , I hate you is unnecessarily repetitive. The Liza character is probably the best under utilized character of the series. It is never explained how V found Liza’s network for him to hack and it didn’t make sense that he has this hi-tech apartment yet was unable to create his own surveillance system. I would not recommend this series.

Good Triology

The main female character dealt with tragedy and abuse. She is confused, wants to love, and be loved. The supporting characters are interesting and fun. This story does have a HEA.

Each book got worse don’t even try reading it!

This series was absolutely painful to listen to and the only reason I forced myself too was because I had to know what happened and kept holding onto hope that it wld get better... it didn’t! It just got worse!! This series didn’t need to be 3 books long, in fact it cld have been condensed into one longer book and it cld have had real potential. The main character wasn’t just a bit of an airhead who stumbled around and got herself into one bad situation after another she was an idiot who was completely unsympathetic by the end of the series. I didn’t just dislike the female lead or want to shake her I didn’t even want her to get her HEA, I have never been more less invested in a characters HEA.

It seemed to me like the author didn’t know whether she was writing a YA romance or a dark romance set in college. I enjoy all kinds of books and they don’t need to be believable for me to fall in love with them but I do need to know how or why someone got from A to B and once again the lead character failed when it came to that. This book can’t be for the younger crowd and the dark romance crowd at the exact same time and yet it doesn’t seem to be able to pick one. The main female lead can’t seem to decide on which of 3 boys/men she wants, one minute she loves them all and then the next she hates two and swears on everything that she loves one and only of them. Her idea of a “girl code” is just as laughable and annoying as her idea of love and betrayal. She actually carries on in her head convincing herself that she’s somehow broken the “girl code” because she has been spending time and later hooking up with someone her friend liked. That comes up more than once and each time it is even more ridiculous neither of her friends had any type of claim on these men, the men had barely spoken to the “friends” at all, and one of the girls had been in a relationship with someone else the entire time. It was a complete waste and seemed only to be used as a filler and mild drama between the first two girls. The main character sleeps with all 3 men and continues to drag them all along being unable to decide how she feels and what she wants, yet in the last book turns around and not only decides she not interested in one of the men but she goes so far as to say she’s fallen out of love and hates him because she sees him talking and smiling with another girl. Mind u this entire time she’s in hiding, the man/boy believes she’s gone, and she was the one who walked and no types of commitment or discussion was had prior to that...wait what? Are we in middle school? As the drama becomes more and more prevalent u will probably surpass annoyed and go straight to anger and disgust; yet still somehow it just gets worse, it leaves u wanting to skip to the end just so u know what happens and u can walk away from it. For instance: u have 4 ppl living in a house together all trying to fly under the radar (some in hiding) and figure out how to find & fight the bad guy so they can walk away free and clear. After months our ridiculous main character becomes more and more withdrawn which leads to the 3 other occupants in the house tying her to a chair for an interventions and pretty much force her to go to counseling, wow things must be bad for those drastic measures. She finally agrees to counseling and is untied, she sees this counselor once and then in the 7 days (or less) before she sees him again she decides she loves Eli and only Eli (remember she’s changed her mind everyday so far), her and Eli have sex and suddenly she’s cured of whatever the hell has been wrong with her. Her and Eli have been together for 4 days and when the counselor is to come back she tells the others she doesn’t need to see him because she’s fine now, even Eli stands beside her and says she’s doing great she’s all better and no longer needs to go. Obviously there’s a fight and she says she’ll speak with the counselor again but Eli is going to be in on the appointment and it no longer matters what anyone else thinks or says, even when the counselor suggests Eli leaves the room the couple ignores him. This Eli is a grown ass man who is supposedly looking out for her best interest he knows what she’s suffered for years and just because she finally chooses him he changes his mind to keep her happy and with him. He goes so far as to say her counselor is out of line and trying to trick her and tells her she doesn’t need to go back to counseling when the counselor was only trying to open her eyes to the fact that she may be trying to block out her emotions for the other men and she at least needs to acknowledge those feelings. Explain to me how this showed us he was a good man, a good “cop”? How many ppl wld actually tell someone that they didn’t need to speak with a professional after being raped?

Ugh now I’m just ranting sorry. I tried to ignore the bad reviews and I took my chances because it was part of the free romance package so I just borrowed the books but it was pointless.

Happily Ever After?

I loved reading this series, just a shame their wasn't more.
Would have loved to know if Miles and Summer eventually settled down and overcame everything by somehow starting over, forgetting the past and having a family of their own somehow.
