I was fortunate enough to receive an ARC of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Callie Hart!
Oh. My. God. Callie has done it again. It had been awhile since my last Hart read - I know blasphemous - but in a way, I saw just how much she has grown as an author. She improved so much in character building and development since the Blood and Roses series. Sasha's healing process is virtually impeccable throughout the novel, and her reactions to the situations she comes face to face with are on point.
Callie, you have officially created the most delicious male character ever - well except for Zeth, I mean, I named one of my house design assignments after him. Rooke - tattoos, treats women amazingly, reads romance novels, isn't afraid to care. *Swoons* His backstory is well built and works well with the plot. He is such a layered character, who makes you rethink the perceptions of mobsters and criminals.
Lastly, that plot twist at the end? Was not expecting that AT ALL. Like, that came out of nowhere, yet made so much sense! Callie, you are a genius and I can't wait to devour more of your books!
