My Musings :

I received a free copy from the author for an honest review.

The story started off where the previous book ended. Boy Oh Boy, does the author deliver! I have to say though that I was a tiny bit disappointed. 

The author did the sassy and flirty with major heat in the previous books. So I was expecting more of the forbidden love and the family dynamics. What I wasn't prepared for was Beth's ordeal. The scenes were heart wrenching especially the day she stays kind of focused on the babies. This part gave me major feels. 

The book has more focus on the family and the different pairs than the spotlight being only on Beth and Daniil. I was disappointed first in not having more of the hot and heavy between the protagonists and then the hardening of Beth's character. Yeah, that is to be predicted because of the ordeal she had gone through but I thought she might retain a part of her which was one of her main attractions to me.

You might say that the plot was pretty straight forward but there were a couple of twists which had me surprised like hell. Maybe I was blinded to the hints but the author managed to get my breath hitching in shock. That's another aspect of the author's writing which has be hanging onto her words. 

Overall, it was a very satisfying conclusion to the romance between Beth and Daniil and I would love to read more about the other characters! 

My rating : 4/5
