I read this series fairly quickly because it was a page turner. The spark between Jade and Talon is so electric and the author wrote this story beautifully. The author's writing was so realistic and I great example of good storytelling. There is a big mystery in this book and the author wrote it so well. This is truly entertaining and this book is HOT, in all caps. It has been awhile since a book has made me want to throw my husband on the bed and I must say that this book made me think naughty thoughts. ;)
The hero in this book, Talon, was a major alpha and I did not expect to love him…. When the story starts I immediately take a liking to Jade because she is smart, funny, and I could totally relate to her. Talon is an ex-military veteran who experienced a painful experience as a Child. The book was really intense and I loved it, but that leads me to the negative element of this book. There was a lot of sex (yes!!), but there was not much of a relationship development. This book could have used a tad bit less sex(just a tiny bit) and should have included a little about their relationship.
The one flaw with this book is the huge mystery. There should be some type of disclaimer because when the truth is revealed…it is quite disturbing. I was not expecting that "type" of climax and it really bothered me. The other flaw that I have with this story was Jade towards the end of the book. Right around the 79% range, Jade loses her humor and her back bone. She comes off as a little teenager and she keeps sleeping with him and 2 minutes later she starts to think about her choices.
Other than that, the book was great. It is a must read and you have to have your tea, blanket, and this book because it is hot and entertaining.!!!
