Wow, I was completely drawn to this book. I am usually not impressed with a young/new adult but this one had me hooked. There is a lot of drama going on and a lot of secrets are revealed which explained a lot of decisions made in the past. Suspense is building and their past is catching up. I was intrigued by unexpected twists, some were predictable, but still very nicely put in the plot.
Rook is one very strong individual but she is also fragile and scared and was forced to grow up very quickly. She is mature for her age and her flight response when in trouble is very prominent. There was a moment I forgot her age but then again I was reminded by her behavior.
Ronin is here and there but he is all in with her. He is smart and sweet, funny but I hated that he lied to her. It was one lie but still.
Spencer and Ford – I liked them both. Especially Ford – he is honest, interesting, and mysterious with no BS and his own sense of humor. He is a Dom and he knows it – and those sparkling moments with Rook were filled with chemistry. So there were moments I was hoping (due to my own preference) she will end up with him. I can’t wait to read his story.
There is love and hate, there is crime and abuse, there are sweet moments, suspense, mystery and HEA. So I would definitely recommend this one to readers who enjoy intense darkish romance with strong characters and HEA.
