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.

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 .

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.

I love Solo and Willow but wished for less apart time

I really enjoyed these characters but wish they didn’t take so long to reconcile and that there was more discussion between Willow and Solo of how Willow’s memories and opinion got skewed by the motherlands Those complaints aside it was a good read and actually made me want to read Hunters story where before I was going to skip 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.

Just plain awful

I've been binge listening to the series for the past week but this book I can't get past chapter 6. Willow is plain awful!!! How on Earth can she be angry about what she doesn't even remember. I found it to be nonsensical and stupid. Worst book so far.

Would not recommend.

This book really took a mayor deviation from how the characters where portrayed in the other books in the series.
I did not understand the hate and the actions which Willow had towards Solo.
Willow was mean, bitchy and super unlikable.
Solo was a great character.
I did not believe that they would end up together. The pace was super off.
I would recommend skippong this book in the series.

Great series, not so great book

I rolled my eyes so many times listening to this book... Solo is a great lead, but Willow is not. It was hard to believe that they would end up together after reading 2/3 of the book. At least the side plots were interesting (police force and Leo, doom squad, and everybody in the mansion).

Omg why!!?

I really wish I hadn't have read this book, cause now I have a bad taste in my mouth for the series!! Willow is SO annoying! And I refuse to even read Hunter's book cause he was such a prick! I love Solo! He reminded me of Magni, who was my favorite, except Solo never yelled at them and called everyone out for their bullshit!! I mean, good god they were children, give me a break, she wanted to run away just as much, and refused him to call for help even!! Ugh.. he never gets redemption either, it was so lack luster.. I just wanted everyone to admit how horrible they had treated Solo.. Ugh.. The series just isn't evolving and opening the way to such an amazing joining of the two worlds.. The fucking Momsi's omg! they are not changing at all and the Nmen are, and no one admits it! God I really had high hopes for this series evolving, but it just kinda regurgitated its self! Dammit seriously wish I had stopped at Genius..
