My rating: 5 of 5 stars
When a book has your heart pounding, your mouth drying up, before you’ve even gotten to chapter one because of its intensity? That’s when you know it’s going to be good, at least for this reader.
This is a ‘climb in and strap down tight’ kind of book to the ‘umpth’ degree.
I started writing this review before I’d even read five chapters. I had to….because I was feeling so much. Phelan and Cole’s story is hard, it’s brutal, it’s epic, it’s beautiful.
The story bounces around in time a lot and at first that confused me a bit but then….but then I got it, then I was grateful for it. Why? Because it softened the blow just a bit, took the razor sharp edge off the claws and made them , well, survivable. It kept your heart beating, although with a noose around it until, until, it finally crescendoed and became so bright, so beautiful, so perfect that it was almost too hard to witness. Almost. But if you want to see, want to feel one of the most amazing, most raw, most pure loves that you never thought existed…..then read this. You will never be the same. And how beautiful is that? I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book.
