There was promise in this book when I started reading it. I loved that the “antagonist” from the first book of this series got his well-deserved redemption. David is a beautiful and complex character and it’s so easy to love him despite his past mistakes – mistakes as a result of his upbringing. Ben however was a totally different case. He is too controlling, too abrasive and none too gentle. I didn’t really root for him throughout this story. It was presented as if they actually have a symbiotic relationship but I rather find it too unhealthy- at least for both of them. The story was nice and dandy at the beginning but it dwindle midway with excessive and prolonged sexual chapters (like they’re having sex 50% of the book) and I found myself drifting from the story. It’s also strange how this story totally deviate from its first three books’ style. Perhaps Miss Dane got bored with the series? I surely hope not. It was great with the first three books and I think I’d love to read more from it – maybe Sam and Mikael story for the next book? I wished I could have given this a higher rating but it just didn’t work for me this time.
Rating: 2 out of 5 stars
