NO HEARTS & FLOWERS HERE... YET I WAS LEFT BREATHLESS
Wow.. Laurelin Paige really outdid herself with this epic conclusion to Emily and Reeve's turbulent, electric and erotic story. First I had to go back and listen to book 1 (First Touch) all over again so I could immerse myself in the dangerous world that Emily is now in while desperately looking for ways to get answers, and help, her ex-best friend Amber. This book isn't a standalone because you'll be completely lost. However, if (like me) you've listened to book 1 but can't quite remember all the finite details to the storyline and the complex relationship between Reeve and Emily then I implore you to go back and refresh yourselves.... as it's even better the second time round because when the WTF cliffhanger hits you're overjoyed when you can now flip to book 2 immediately.
As the dust settles after the major cliffhanger there's one mystery after another as threats are made and carried out, secrets pile up and remain unanswered, jealousy rears its ugly head and the Greek Mafia make their move. Emily and Reeve's relationship continues to be explosive as Reeve's sexually dominant side has found its perfect match with the submissive Emily totally, and willingly, giving up control of her body and her desires. She's a co-dependent, damaged, lost, insecure and an emotionally confused woman who's found the perfect man in the overpowering, controlling, possessive, mysterious, dark and sexually wicked Reeve who crackles power when he enters a room. But, as they very slowly learn to actually trust as well as love, they both eventually undergo major character development. There are chapters that go back in time to explain and highlight the relationship between Emily and Amber - which, in hindsight, was always dysfunctional and abnormal.
Suspense and intrigue oozes from every Chapter along with twists and turmoil, things you think are going to happen don't and things you never suspected are dropped into the mix as you drown in the angst, drama and erotic adventure. So it's not until the end that LP finally discloses her intricate and flawless masterplan as she skilfully reveals all the answers, reveals the bad guy, reveals the truth, reveals the deep love and concludes this emotional roller-coaster with a HEA ending. The chemistry was sizzling, passionate, hot and needy yet Reeve was more compassionate, understanding, loyal and tender in this second book... but never fear - he continued to be the rich, dirty talking, controlling, arrogant Alpha bastard that we've grown to love so much.
Worth a credit? Yes, and I'm in awe of Laurelin Paige's creative and talented mind because in this her flawed characters have so much depth, her storyline is an intricately spun tangled web which I happily snagged myself in for hours and I knew her HEA would be worth the wait. Told from Emily's POV by a brilliant narrator who turned this awesome book into such a memorable listen.
