I Won't Soon Forget This One
Behold the Stars (Signal Bend Series) - Susan Fanetti

Behold the Stars is the sequel to Move the Sun where we first met Lilli and Isaac. Where MTS focuses more on getting to know who Lilli is and her reasons for moving to Signal Bend. BTS is more about Isaac, his dedication to his MC, Signal Bend and Lilli. Isaac and Lilli's building relationship isn't exactly a backdrop but it is more secondary for a better part of the book.

 

There were things I loved about BTS, then there were things that I didn't like so much and that left me unsettled...even mildly traumatized, if I'm being honest.  This book has a violent edge to it that wasn't there in the first installment.  

BTS is less focused on the sexy and romance, more on the happenings of the MC so we get to see the dynamics between the Night Horde, their allies and their enemies.

 

Ever read a sequel and think, "Uh, why did I read that when the characters and/or story didn't evolve or progress?"  That's not the case with BTS.  No one is the same by the end of BTS. No one! Everyone is forever changed by these events and it informs the rest of the series.  I am interested to see where the Hollywood factor takes us in the installments to come.  

 

Although the blurb warns of 'dark themes' and 'violence', I must say that it wasn't enough of a disclaimer for me.  This book required a clear trigger warning.  Susan Fanetti doesn't hold back on the violence here so this isn't for the faint of heart.

Behold the Stars (Signal Bend Series) - Susan Fanetti 4.5 INTENSE Stars

I have started reading the first book a while back but I don't know why I stopped... I'm glad my friend, Silvana, called my attention to this again.... what with all the hype she's heard about it..... :)

In the first part of the series we were introduced to Lilli, who was wrongfully accused and dismissed from the army.... and then there's the Night Horde biker club with Isaac, the biker pres. We also got to know the small town called Signal Bend, Missouri.

Isaac and Lilli met, attracted and f*cked (hard)., A Lot! Then comes love. But Lilli came to Signal Bend for a purpose and she won't stop till she accomplished what she came for.

Both characters are tough and It's not often you get to read a book where the woman sounds more kick ass than the men. And Lilli certainly is stubborn, sassy and bad-ass. I really like her, though sometimes I find her character too much.... While Isaac seems to have this soft spot when it comes to Lilli. I love Isaac, I think he is hot and all that.. but I would have preferred him to be a lot more tougher, and I'm not saying he isn't... I just like me a bad biker... ;) But he definitely knows how to treat his woman right...

Lilli's problem has been taken cared off in book one, their story continues in this second part of the series. This time Isaac is dealing with a very powerful enemy who wants to take over Signal Bend and will stop at nothing to get what he wants. And Isaac has to do everything to protect his club and their family, the townspeople, and of course Lilli.

While I can say that with this second book, it solidifies Isaac and Lilli's relationship, they also went through a really rough stage, dealing with a lot of personality conflict and personal issues. But they compliment each other, makes them the perfect couple.

There is definitely a lot of action, and is pretty violent, and whole lot of suspense! It was shocking, emotional and intense. I loved it! Though I was kinda thinking, poor Lilli, it is always her. Lucky she is strong and she got Isaac.

You will also get to know more and love the other members of the club... My heart goes out to Show, the clubs VP, and I can't wait to read his part of the story, cause I get the feeling there will be one or there is already, I'm way behind in this series, hehe. And I'm also beginning to love the townspeople of Signal Bend too...

Written under dual POV.

Behold the Stars (Signal Bend Series) - Susan Fanetti

The second book in the Signal Bend series begins with Issac and Lilly trying to do their best to take down Ellis. But with Ellis upping his game plan, and hurting more and more people in town, they have a whole lot to do now. Not only do they have worry about all of this, Issac and Lilly also have to deal with their new life together. Neither one of them have ever been in this serious of a relationship so now it's a major adjustment for each of them. 

This book was slow to get into for me. I just felt a little bored with it at first. And I felt like a lot of it was repeating what had already been done in the last book. But then towards the middle it really picked up a lot, and I really enjoyed it. I also thought it was very sad what happened with Show. I do now look forward to his book more than ever. I also really loved how Issac, and Lilly turned out in the end. They went through so much, and really deserved to get where they are in the end.
