I wasn't feeling this, I don't know, the love triangle was beyond annoying in this second book...and I'm just wondering how I gave the first book 5 stars…smh.  It wasn't a bad follow-up, just kind of juvenile…with a less than believable storyline…all culminating in a somewhat rushed ending.  Hhhmm…that sounds kind of bad, huh? I will say that it's overall message is attempting to be redemptive...and, it almost got there.

 

Will I continue this series⇜  I think this was the ending to Sloan and James stories…and I'm not really feeling like I want to read anything else taking place in this world, so…probably not.

My Thoughts

 

 

This book drove me insane…like, not right away, but about 1/3 of the way in and I was just…ugh.  I felt like this was just made up drama, that would never play out like this in real life, just for the purpose of juicy story.  I don't believe anyone wants somebody that intensely and pushes them away with that same intensity.  And over a complete douchebag of a friend.  Seriously! 

 

Bbbuuttttt……I have to give Karina Halle some credit, because she can write some sex scenes…like holy hotness, with just the right amount of sizzle and no lame-ass words for body parts here…so…I'm torn... (continued below)

 

Will I read more from this Author?⇜  …should I read more by her?  I mean, are her other books less over-the-top dramatic?  Please tell me?

♪♫My Pick For Book Theme Song♫♪

Foolin' by Def Leppard  --Since Poppy is my favorite character...this song is for her.  She is an evil bitch…but at least she admits it…

♫Lady luck never smiles

So lend your love to me awhile

Do with me what you will

Break the spell take your fill

On and on we rode the storm

The flame has died and the fire has gone

Oh, this empty bed is a night alone

I realized that long ago♫

⇝My Thoughts⇜

 

Going into this, I knew it would be an odd story, but I thought what the hell…I figured at least, if nothing else, it's a short story.  At least the audio version is at just over 5 hours.

 

Poppy was by the far the most gratifying character, the sort you love to hate.  Like Regina George in Mean Girls.  Wink was a close second for reasons I'll not say…and Midnight…Well, I love his name, especially his answer to how he received the name.  So, he was the least memorable character and his pov is the prevailing one...enough said.  In the end, it was the shortness of this that killed it for me, and the fact, that overall it didn't surprise me with where it went. 

⇝Sex Factor⇜  There is a ton of sex going on…it's not really explicit (thank goodness) minor sex that's explicit is just uncomfortable…I mean…eww.  This got some points knocked off for it's blatant promiscuity and no mention of birth control or anything.

Unbreakable by Firelight  --It's kind of for Emma…I liked her best and she's a strong, resilient girl. I think I might have liked this more if it was from her pov, at least partially so.♫

⇝My Thoughts⇜

 

 

 

 

The audiobook version that I received from the library came with a pdf that included pictures, but I never did get around to looking at them.  Maybe, they would have helped sparked my interest in this, I guess I'll never know.

 

 

⇝Sex Factor⇜ Not a factor.
