Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews

Genre:   Romance,

I love the sometimes OTT drama and emotion that New Adult books provide. I like to vary my reading, jumping around genres and sometimes I just need that deeper emotion, even when it means suspending realism, that New Adult provides. I really enjoyed the first two books in this series, and was pleased to get this third one for review.

Well, previous books covered Logan and Emily, Ream and Kat and we learned that Ream has a twin sister, Haven. They’d had a traumatic, devastating childhood and had done things that’s hard for them to deal with now.  For twelve years he’s believed her dead, and then discovered she was alive. He doesn’t know the full story though, the horrific abuse and degradation she suffered, and she’s keeping it all boxed up, can’t bear to tell anyone.

Now Haven has been found, but she’s clearly mentally troubled by her past, and Ream is terrified of losing her again. She’s been coping by running, for hours sometimes, exhausting her body physically and mentally when she feels the stresses building, not wanting Ream to see how badly she’s affected. She thinks he’ll blame himself for believing the lie about her death. After one run, out in a horrific thunderstorm, Crisis finds her and helps her to get past Ream without him seeing what she’s been doing. He only agrees though if she promises to text him daily while they’re away touring – with that and the bodyguard Ream has arranged he hopes she’ll be safe.

Of course Crisis is attracted, so is Haven, though she knows his rep – like Logan before he met Emily Crisis is known for his manwhore ways…The emotion between them feels so real, very hot and palpable, and the sexual tension is always there even when Haven is trying to keep herself closed off. Ream won’t approve though – they both know that. Still, when you’ve met your soul mate protective brothers can’t stop love. Danger though, that’s  a huge barrier and as always in this series its never far away.

You could read this as a stand alone, but I think you’ll get the best by reading books one and two first otherwise the background to events that are mentioned a lot here is going to be difficult to work out. This genre is full of events that aren’t particularly realistic, but the reader needs to suspend cynicism to get the best enjoyment and so it was here. There’s enough realism worked in to make events feel genuine, even if your brain says “no that wouldn’t/couldn’t happen” It’s a great read, one I enjoyed, sex; hot, sensual, erotic scenes, and a decent backstory bringing us more of the story and characters introduced in the first three books. Its a bit less dark that the first two, the events only seen via Haven’s flashbacks and I found that a bit easier to deal with. I look forward to the fourth but I’ll be sad to leave this group of characters. Still, its a series that I like forward to reading on one of my back to back reading marathons. I find with series/trilogies I get the best out of them that way, The backstory is fresh in my mind and not dulled by months of reading other novels in between episiodes.


Stars: Five, a dark romance, very gripping and not a sweet boy meets girl style romance.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
