I received a copy of this book from the author and I voluntarily reviewed it. Thank you Lylah James!
I need to start by saying that I love Aylessio. So much. They are special. The first half of this book was emotionally charged. It starts off right where the previous one left off, and we discover the aftermath of the captivity. In true James fashion, we see and understand Ayla’s fragile state. Her panic attacks make our own hearts race. Her memories assaulting her make us want to comfort her. It’s crazy how REAL mear words on a page can be.
With the threat of Alberto still looming, the book still has some angst, but not as much as the previous two. This was a toned down book. It was all about the aftermath; the post-trauma environment. It was nice, but I’m a savage and wanted more blood and craziness near the end.
However, I am so happy about how the story turned out for Aylessio, and how this is a great jumping off point for many other stories for the other characters. Who’s next? And how fabulous is Nina by the way? I told you guys I’m a savage.
This book made me laugh more than the other two. With less danger, the characters really let loose, and we meet and couple of new ones... Erik’s mine people!
I’m so happy to have picked up this author’s books!
