Publisher's summary

Sometimes the purest love can turn to the deepest hate. 

I was 12 when I promised Solo that I would one day marry him. Maybe I would have if he hadn't gotten impatient and ruined everything that summer when I was 15. For the last seven years I've replaced the love I once felt for him with anger over his almost getting me killed.  

Willow, a talented Motlander dancer, goes on tour in the Northlands. What should have been a chance for a new beginning brings her face to face with her traumatic past when Solo, a mountain of a man and the fiercest warrior of his generation, is put in charge of her safety against her will. If she can't get rid of him at least she can return the favor and make his job a nightmare too. 

Contains mature themes.

Worst In The Series...

I gave 3 stars because I love the series but this is the worst yet. I am unhappy with Willows character. She is acting high and mighty like he wasn't a child making stupid decisions JUST LIKE SHE WAS. She hardly remembers the incident but it irate over it. She is treating him illogical. Some of the things she is angy about are illogical. I am unhappy with this book.

I really enjoyed this one

I know so many people said it was not worth listening to. I didn't listen to the reviews and was pleasantly surprised. Yes Willow was not the lovey dovey main character but she was totally relatable to. Time can warp your perceptions and she was young when the tragedy happened. If someone tells you again and again that your are supposed to hate something you eventually start to believe them. You see her mind working through the I hate you thinking and realizing she doesn't hate him.
Was worth the credit I spent for it.

Skip It

I started binging this series last week and I loved all these books up until this one. This book is horrid. It makes you hate Willow. I read all the reviews telling me to skip it, but I had to find out for myself apparently. I really wish I hadn’t wasted the credit. Now I don’t even want to try the rest of the series.
I don’t want to give away any spoilers, but honestly you may want a few warnings here. The book keeps going back and fourth between the past and the present. It reminds you why you liked Willow then, but now she is stuck up and petty. Also, it doesn’t seem realistic. It goes from petty Willow back to the one we liked before in a millisecond.
Also, fair warning this is a small spoiler. I am an adult. I understand wanting to do flashbacks to their time as teens, but I don’t want to read/listen to steamy scenes between teenagers. Gross. Gross. Gross.
Honestly, skip this or it will ruin the series.

Ms. Peer why did you make people hate Willow?

I am on chapter 17 and I am sick to my stomach how much I dislike her. I guess it should make you feel good on how much you can envoke such extreme feeling in words that you write! But it is making me really not even want to finish this book, and leave it with a one star rating. But the ONLY thing that is making me hesitate is because I read Hunters book. Solo did not deserve this hatred and such a low rating. I really wished you had wrote the book with him falling in love with Selma Rose and her with him. That's how much I want to get back at Willow!!! She doesn't deserve him. I hope the book will change after this point, but I hesitate to finish the audio. ***NEW UPDATE*** I listened to the rest of the audio book and because Solo was such a great lead, I decided that he deserved 2more stars. Willow was not any better in the last half of this story. But this series is fantastic and I have to say at least half the stories are great. The narrators are excellent na d awesome. I hope all will get audio books .

least favorite

I was excited to see how Solo and Willow's young love story would turn out. It was incredibly immature, lots of holes in the development and minimal spice. Willow's reprogramming was easily undone and Solo was just a victim the whole time. This one is okay to skip... you will not be missing much. Also, the addition of the super star head case was just a dumb plot thread and to saddle Tristan with her is a serious let down. Can't believe this followed the Genius (my absolute favorite)

Back on track

The storyline of this book was much more interesting than the last book. It held my attention and was hard to put down. Willow was unlikable for half of the book; I liked Solo. The storyline is moving along at a good pace. The narrators are doing a great job with characters. On to the next book in series!

Willow is not likeable

I have no idea why a man would pursue a woman as flighty and immature as Willow. I had a hard time finishing this book as Willow was just such an unlikeable character. She was immature, flighty and played head games with Solomon. Why the heck would a guy stick around for that nonsense?

So good!!

This series is one of my favorites. I have listened to it several times and each time I have a different favorite installment. This story is my favorite this time. Willow and Hunter pissed me off before but now I see there attitudes is what made the story, after all Hunter in The Athlete was my favorite. I love the new characters introduced in this story. Leo, Sassquatch and Solo are good friends. I love that. Tristan is pretty funny with his lessons to Selma about N men. I laughed out loud so many times. I can only imagine how much fun Elin Peer had writing this brilliant series. It’s written so well, the way each story flows together. Each book is standalone but we, the readers have been given an intro to what’s to come in the next book. The narrators are outstanding! Noelle has a cute sexy voice and John is excellent as well and super funny. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys dystopian worlds , romance and a little sexy fun.

Great book

I don’t understand why everyone is complaining. This is a really good book. Two thumbs up 👍🏻.
After listening to all the MC books I needed something else and i am happy I found this series.
