I may change it when I get the chance to reread it but for now my initial thoughts were at first that I wasn't going to like it, and that I felt deep disappointment that I may have found a dud. Then I wanted to drop trou and make babies! Then KA broke my heart and made me cry. And then I laughed as loud as I dared with a baby upstairs. And then the ending came around and normally I can keep up but I was getting confused. All of the endings in the G&R series have been action packed and frantic but this one kinda lost me for a wee bit. I was confused as to who was where, and who was who, and who was not who any longer. And then came the cliffhanger at the end that normally pisses me off but I was so immensely satisfied my interest was only slightly peeked. Though I am certainly eager to know where that is going to lead but I was too aglow with happiness to be 'too' bothered. If I smoked I would have been smoking a cigarette by that point.
This book confirmed that this is my favorite KA series. I was waaay happier reading this than I was reading Motorcycle Man. Maybe as I am growing older I am starting to appreciate the more refined British badass, as opposed to his more crass, in-your-face American counterpart.
Naaaah. I love them all. :D
But in all seriousness, this series is not for everybody. The unapologetic paranormal hijinks will cause some people's heads to explode. Which just means that it's perfect for me. I love wacky craziness! The more the merrier. And Kristen Ashley certainly delivers. :)
We-ell, I don't wanna give this a 3 and I didn't want to give this a 4. So i wish there was a 3.5 rating. This was just not what I was hoping for andWe-ell, I don't wanna give this a 3 and I didn't want to give this a 4. So i wish there was a 3.5 rating. This was just not what I was hoping for and not what I was expecting after being teased with those teaser chapters. Pffft, at one point I felt like tapping my Kindle and saying, "Hello!! I seem to be missing the erotica in my erotica!!!" Though when they finally got it on it was damn hot. Damn Hot. And Knight, sheesh. For such a dark, brooding, dangerous, blah, blah, blah, man he sure was chatty. At the end i actually started skimming when he began talking. Man, after this read I feel the need to read about a taciturn grunter.
And I knew this was going to be compared to Fifty Shades of Grey. I don't see it since Fifty Shades of Grey is not unique in it's subject matter either so who cares!
And there are some things that the hero reveals that I actually enjoyed. Through another one of his lengthy explanations you understand why he does it and that he plainly had other choices and that he still chooses to do what he does. And I like that. Kristen Ashley followed through in that respect and I admire that. She said he was going to be an unrepentant bad man. And he is. So I admire that.
Also, I wish this was longer. For a Kristen Ashley book this was almost rushed. I missed being able to slowly get to know her characters on a much deeper level and this book felt like it was just skimming the surface. So often erotica is just skimming the surface so it would have been awesome to have had both the hot sexing and KA's fantastic storytelling. ...more

*swoon* I have a new love. I love this man. He is my hero. My new husband. My one and only.
And this was told entirely from his POV. How cool is that?*swoon* I have a new love. I love this man. He is my hero. My new husband. My one and only.
And this was told entirely from his POV. How cool is that?!
And surprisingly, I feel bad for his ex. Maybe its the new mom in me but I feel for her. yeah, she's a bitch and made some really stupid choices but I think its unfair how she had to raise 2 boys by herself and then Layne and Rocky swoop in at the eleventh hour and become the favorites. ...more
