The series is great but... This story was good. Joshua the hero was great but the Heroine Marie was a little, well stupid. Don't get me wrong I liked her through most of the story but when she keeps making stupid mistakes it became ridiculous. By the climatic end I could care less if she got kidnapped or chained to a wall in the basement.
How can I explain this better... If this was a horror movie Marie would be the preverbal "Dumb Blonde". She hears the menacing music while standing on "Elm" street. She sees a trail of blood and follows it to the dark house with friends shouting "Marie don't go in". She ignores them. She goes in anyway and when she gets stabbed stares in disbelief at the large hunting knife in her chest.
With that being said, the author does a good job bringing the Heroine around in the last chapters and epilogue.
Jessica Sims is a wonderful writer and does a great job with her character development and the story held my attention in spite of Marie's less than intelligent actions.
Leah Mallach did and awesome job with the Narration. Her character voices were very distinct for each character. She does a great job at making men sound like... well men.
Series five stars, but because of Marie this book four stars.

I both loved and hated this book.
I loved the male lead, Josh, in this book. He was handsome, kind, and a smart-alack. What I disliked about this book was the female lead. She was just so dense and so hurtful to Josh. She constantly refused to give Josh credit for being a decent guy for no apparent reason other than he dated a lot in his past. I just got to the point where I was muttering out loud about how stupid she was. The ending of the book also just seemed to drag out f-o-r-e-v-e-r. I really enjoyed all the other books in this series. I think if Maria had not been so dumb and self-absorbed, I would have enjoyed this book more.
