I had concentration issues for the first couple of chapters. You were pushed into the dark and had to figure out what the hell was happening. I had to reread a lot before I finally managed to get a grip on the story, but it was more than worth it!
I was very happy to discover that in this book the attraction between mates isn’t infinite and all explainable. Caia manages to make a firm stand when Lucien has lied to her for the umpteenth time, she even wants to have nothing to do with him for a time! Okay, there are some weak moments, but given the circumstances, completely understandable.Lucien…
Lucien is a typical alpha male. He acts very rationally when he tries to protect his mate. He only seems to forget again and again that Caia has FEELINGS and that she isn’t a CHILD anymore. So what happens is his own fault and so I have no problem that he’s reaping what he sowed, except he hurts Caia a lot with it.
The end was so bittersweet. I had a hard time keeping it dry, cause I didn’t expect it at all! After finishing the book I was still thinking about what happened. I just couldn’t let it go and envisioned all kinds of different scenarios in my head, to make it better. That wasn’t the only time something very unexpected happened, although this was the most shocking one. I really like it when books keep me on the edge of the seat, while not knowing what the next page will bring.
Overall rating 4 HEARTS. I was actually planning to give this one 5 hearts. Then I remembered my struggling at the beginning of the book. I actually considered to put this one down! Fortunately the rest of the book was way better! Look forward to the next book!
