After the first three books in this awesome series about Buttons and Crow I really didn’t think I’d enjoy this second trilogy quite as much.. oh how wrong I was as it’s every bit as gripping, sexy, sighworth, thrilling, descriptive and intense as the previous books. Penelope Sky’s well-paced complex romances take time to develop, her characters take time to fall in love and they take their time to reveal all the well-written emotional feels contained within their covers.
Caine hadn’t bargained to fall in love with Adelina.. but that’s exactly what he did. Adelina had been loaned out to Caine for a whole month as collateral for an arms deal. But, as time slowly slips away, Caine loves coming home to his new house guest, enjoys their talks, relishes their relationship and realizes he doesn’t want to hand Adelina back to the abusive monster who owns her. But Adeline wants to go back. she has a bff who was snatched alongside her and she’s not prepared to abandon her.. so Caine has no choice other than to take Adeline back. Caine then spends days missing her, feeling regret, heartache, guilt and frustration over the loss of the woman he realizes he loves.. until he finally snaps and declares war to get his woman back. But it wasn’t going to be easy, it wasn’t going to be without bloodshed and it wasn’t going to be a walk in the park with Adelina.. because Caine was going to have to work hard for their HEA ending.
It’s not as dark as the Buttons story but it’s just as addictive. I do think narrators can either make or break a story.. and thankfully the story was in good hands with these two wonderful narrators whose talents brought the story and characters to life. Four different POVs, Buttons and Crow were front and centre at times and very much in the forefront of the story along with Adeline’s and Caine’s.
Worth a credit? Yes, it’s a binge-worthy epic series overflowing with drama, angst and feels.
