Well I will be darned. This book surprised me. I started it and was not a fan of the characters we were with on this journey. They were driving me mad and I wanted nothing to do with them in the first book nor the second.
Then I read this book.
This is Mara and Elias's story. This is the story you didn't know you needed.
I love a book hat can take my perception of characters and turn is on its end. I love that it really changed my opinion little by little. I may have almost combusted while reading it though because fret not, the steam level is scalding in this book.
Willow took a set of flawed and broken characters and made you see through the facade that they show the world. For Mara it was a mask she wore to protect herself. For Elias though, for him is was his entire life that he was withholding and it broke your heart.
This was an amazing read. A lot comes to light from the events of the first book and you get too ee all the favorites in a different way. I cannot WAIT for the next read.
It was never a question of love.
I knew I loved Elias Lancaster and that he loved me.
At least I always thought he did.
But for some reason, he always found an excuse not to be with me.
The pain I felt as my childhood love rejected me, again and again, after promising me the world when we were kids…
Well, it just wouldn’t go away.
No matter how hard I tried.
Desperate times called for desperate measures, and I never wanted to be considered desperate, but I knew if something didn’t change soon, I’d lose Elias for good and die of a broken heart.
No one told me how many times my heart could break in the process.
