One of the things I love most about Lisa Renee Jones and her novels is that with most of her books she starts off with this letter to the reader that recaps the last book for you. It allows me jump right in without having to do a complete re-read. I adore it. I find it one of the most helpful things an author can do. I know it isn't necessary, but it truly does help when it has been awhile since the previous book.
Okay. Now onto the WONDERFUL EPICNESS that was this novel.
I read it a few months back and just went and did a re-read. It was twice as good the second time. I swear. Lisa has crafted such complex characters in this novel with a story line that both engages and leaves you pondering and scheming right along with it.
Emily finally has to let everything come to the light. With the ending that we were left with I KNEW (or at least hoped) that Lisa was going to finally give us all the secrets. Thank goodness we finally start making headway on the chaos that is the cartel.
Then everything started moving really fast and I got hooked like an addict searching for another fix. I wanted to know what was coming next and if things were going to play out the way we all hoped. It was energizing to read.
By the time I got to the end of the book I was not only gripping my iPad like my life depended on that next page, but I was 100% TEAM SHEMILY or, whatever their team name is. I'm working on it.
All I know is they WILL get their happily ever, no matter who I need to bribe to make it happen. Cartels be darned.
