Wild and Free by Kristen Ashley
Wild and Free (The Three Series Book 3) - Kristen Ashley

Way too long. I was bored out of my mind and forced myself to read it. Also, it's really bad when I'm more interested in other characters than the main couple. I liked Yuri and Aurora a lot more and wanted to read more about them. 
Why do they have to call their women bitches? Every time Abel said it, I wanted to punch him in the face. Repeatedly. Abel and Lilah also had so many sex scenes that I started skipping these. I waited for the golem attack and then didn't "see" any of the action because I was forced to sit in the basement with a group of women drinking tea. Such a disappointment. 
Loved the world, liked the side-characters, and didn't care much about the main couple.
2.5 stars

Wild and Free (The Three Series Book 3) - Kristen Ashley

Solid 3.75 Stars
Whew... Well, aside from the fact that I have been waiting a LONG time, anticipating this book release, I must say, though I wasn't In Love with it, I did Love it. Let me attempt to explain myself.

Why this WASN'T a 5 star read for me

- I don't like the fact that Ms. Ashley decided to not really flesh out Abel's character more, concerning his Asian background/upbringing. Aside from the terms of endearments Abel used & the fact that we are TOLD of his genes/background & of course his "family", that's all you got.

 

Now, while I love me some Brock Lucas (Wild Man) I'm not too hyped that Abel sounds EXACTLY like him. Even though he is a 200+ year old Asian-American Vampire/Wolf Hybrid, & has had to adapt to modern times, I wish that his presence was just more his own when it comes to his upbringing & who he was born to. I think if we would have gotten this it would have made his character that much more for me. It would have shown him standing out more as an individual & not so close to other Alpha's I've read that were penned by KA.

Now because I love Abel & the story surrounding him, I was able to look past this. But still I just wish this type of character study/writing could have been a reality where he is concerned.

- I REALLY wish that we could have been allowed to see certain action sequences. I felt left out a bit. While I loved being cooped up in the compound with these characters. I thoroughly enjoyed what was occurring at times, I just still wish we could have been allowed to see certain things come about. Especially since we had to read through them planning & getting ready for such battles etc.. but then only to "hear" about it after the fact, left much to be desired, especially when you consider how intense/action packed this book starts. The first 3 chapters alone were pretty busy with this type of intensity. So to see it disappear for a good portion of the story, was a bummer.

- Now this is what REALLY ticked me off. MAJOR PLOT HOLE here concerning Delilah's "Power" the way it was introduced & what it represented, said it should have come into play long before it did. But it came into play for a completely different reason when it was truly needed, instead of for the reason(s) you'd think it would have. And what occurred to bring it out, truly made no sense to me & ticked me off... So, this is why, this book was not the 5 star read I was so hoping it would have been. There were just many things big & small that I don't feel were fleshed out well. And to be honest, ended on a slightly sloppy note. This is the final book of the 3. Things that should/needed to be on point, just weren't. Again, that's a bummer.

Why I love this story
-I loved the dynamic between all of the characters really. I definitely love how Abel & Delilah not only communicated openly, even when their discussions weren't always lovey dovey roses. But I  also love the intensity of emotion that they shared with one another, in & out of the bedroom. I loved all of the secondary characters that brought color to this tale & that helped move certain things along plot wise.

-I did enjoy learning more of the reasons behind the Three & why. (Though I wish more clear info was given) Even though I understood it myself, I can still see how certain things can be confusing or leave people wondering were things really resolved or not. Or what was the point? But again, I loved how these things came to light & that I was seeing it unfold through Abel's & Delilah's eyes. So the way those things came about it kept my interest.

- And FINALLY what took my rating a bit over 3.5 stars, was the Epilogue. I felt the closure here. I love how it all came together and how certain people & things were explained/given, after the fact. So the Epilogue did appease me in many ways.

All in all this was a decent close to this trilogy. I did enjoy the journey for many reasons. So I loved it, I just was hoping to beIn Love with it by the time it ended. *shrugs*

I would definitely recommend this read/trilogy. Though I would never EVER recommend you read book 1. I just can't do it. When people ask me about book 1 in this trilogy, I'm always like...

Great end to the series!
Wild and Free (The Three Series Book 3) - Kristen Ashley

Once upon a time, I used to count the number of KA books I had read. But now I've read so many that I've lost count. I bring this up for a reason. I've read quite a few of KA's books. Some I've loved and some have been a trial for one reason or another. But one thing that has never happened, in all of her books I've read, is she has never made me cry. Until now.

 

I stated in my review for the first book of this series that It’s been my experience that there aren’t many authors that do contemporary and paranormal well. I was really surprised when I liked the first book. Even more so when I pretty much loved the second book. So that gave me high hopes for this book. And I'm happy to report that I wasn't the least disappointed.

 

You pretty much get the beginning of this book as an epilogue to book 2, <b><i>With Everything I am</i></b>, so I knew basically how this was going to start. I wasn't the least bit surprised by the instant connection between Abel and Delilah. There are times that I have issues with the suddenness of a relationship but it worked here. Delilah was understandably upset and freaked out after she met Abel but she quickly realized her connection to him and threw herself into her new life.

 

Abel...well, he surprised me. I don't know what I expected but it wasn't him. I guess because Lucien was an old world vampire with class and sophistication and Callum was royalty as King of the werewolves, I expected something similar out of Abel. So I was really surprised to see how removed he was from the paranormal world and that he was a biker. I never would have thought that would have worked but it did.

 

I also have to add that I love how much we saw of Lucien, Leah, Callum and Sonia in this book. I loved seeing the friendships that they had and how they all became close friends.

 

I realize that ARCs are precious commodities, especially when they come from this author. There were a few events that happened in this book that I would love to talk about and vent over but this is an ARC, most people haven't yet read this and it is the end of the series (which saddens me) so I don't want to spoil anything. I will say that for the big twists, there was one I really liked and was surprised by and there was one I hated down to my very soul. The second one made me cry and as a reader that holds grudges against fictional characters, it will probably keep me from rereading that part of this book. And I have to say that I wish there had been greater retribution handed out...but that's just my inner vampire coming out.

 

Overall, I really enjoyed this book, and the whole series. It definitely ranks up there with my favorite books by Kristen Ashley.
