the book As if I hadn t just read it or something Andbook As if I hadn t just read it or something And is just plan annoying I m JUST GOING TO DO IT WITH YOU BUT BE going to do it with you but be and obstinate and base my decision to marry you or not on how well you do it to me instead of oh I don t now feelings I usually enjoy Laurens novels especially since I am a sucker for protective men especially ones named Rafe but this is one I practically regret reading I detest leaving a series unfinished but I wish this had been a trilogy as opposed to a uartet It would have been much faster paced and less repetitive as a series hers usually flow so well together but this series felt awkwardly smushed together I suppose that was part of the point four different viewpoints that occur in a similar time frame but it really didn t work for me Julia uinn has two books that do this but they fit very well together This book simply did not work for me All in all I d read it if you are een to finish the series but I suggest skimming most of it Also apologies for hating on the book for being wordy then doing the same This was a fun romantic read I liked the way the author then doing the same This was a fun romantic read I liked the way the author so much agency to her female characters and there was none of that dubious consentalpha male crap which was refreshing However the flowery over descriptive prose was a bit tiring to read and then end was very schmaltzy and everything got tied up with the perfect little bow Still I think the book was worth the time and I may check out other books by the author in the future This was of a 35 but definitely not 4 it just took too long for the story to really get going maybe it s just been too long since I read book 3 The secondary mystery was a good touch tho and actually ept my interest in the story until the cultists started seriously showing up The conclusion was a nice twist I think I should have seen it coming sooner than I did but at least I figured it out before any of the good guys did All in all a good ending to the serie. Sure found only in his armsDrawn together by fate united by fiery passion they pursue their shared destinyone they'll live to see only if they unmask the Black Cob.
