Rating: 5 out of 5.

Holy fudge this book broke me, like shattered me into a million pieces. 😭😭😭

Things are completely out of control for the Vega twins, and secrets are spilling out all over the place. Lots of highly inappropriate acts and bullying going on here, but remember, these people aren’t humans. They’re fae and shifters with animalistic instincts.

What I liked…

One of the hottest and feistiest sex scenes I’ve ever read. Love it. 

I loved that we finally get some tension between the sisters. I think they were due a bit of fight.

I love how just when I think things are going okay for the Vega twins, shit gets thrown at them worse than before. This truly is an emotional rollercoaster, but I ain’t getting off it.

What I didn’t like…

I’m still not a fan of Seth and Max’s POVs, and now we get Xavier’s. I just don’t think they offer anything that the other POVs can’t. And they’re not as interesting as the other POV characters. 

I haven’t mentioned this in my previous reviews but the male voice in the audiobook is sometimes a bit overdone for my liking, especially in Darius’ POV. Sure, he’s usually mad about something, but it just feels too much. And Orion’s tone in the male voice it a lot gentler, almost calm, but it comes across as grittier in the female voice. 

Final thoughts…

I’m broken. Utterly broken by the ending of this book and how so many things were going right then suddenly… Not. But don’t panic, there are plenty of survivors and good things so they can go wrong in the next book, probably.
