Overall Opinion :
OMG.. Seriously , this series is one of the darkest series I have ever read. It has every trigger known to mankind (including Rape , starvation , Violence) and still I can’t stp reading!! There is something so addictive about Pam’s books , that I always know she is going to rip out my heart through her books but damn if I don’t find myself first on the line to let that happen every time!
This story was also as dark as the other books of this series , however this was the only book that did not have an actual Non-Con Scene between the main protagonists. The twists were amazing and I could feel the emotions of the characters through the book ,seeping into my veins and promising to never let me go! Cole , who is a side character in the other book of this series played a major role in this one and I can’t wait for his book! I already know it is going to be a blast and I hope Pam Gives us that book soon!
A definite recommendation to all the Dark romance lovers out there! Like I said before , this book has triggers mentioned in the starting of the review so please keep that in mind. Even though this was a standalone , all the plots of the books in this series are connected so It will be better if you read them all in order instead of missing through some of the books for better understanding and an amazing experience!
Final Verdict :
A very dark book that is now my new addiction!
Pam has me hooked on this series and I can’t wait until she gives me the last fix of this series!
A definite recommendation to all the dark Romance lovers who don’t mind the triggers listed above in the starting of the review.
