Sweet and beautiful agony.
Rhapsody was probably my most anticipated book of the year. I'll be honest and admit that I was a bit nervous to read it, but silly me to feel anxious, because the beauty of this book was not only enthralling, but very uplifting.

Leave it to Jack and Caroline to put my heart through the ringer. My God, the angst, the sex, the love!!!! I didn't think it was possible to love th

This series just gets better and better for me. You get flawed characters that are broken yet beautiful. And in this instalment I'd say it was very much an emotional journey... Where the jigsaw puzzle is slowly being put back together, there's rough edges but there is some hope and a whole lot of healing going on.

There are times when you read a story and it moves you beyond measure. It takes hold of you and turns you inside out. Rhapsody starts off where Phoenix ends and the story immediately grabs you.

The story explodes and comes alive. It's gripping, emotional, tender, frustrating, and sexy. The way that Cecilia London tells a story is extraordinary. Rhapsody is the 5th book in The Bellator Saga and it completely captivates and fascinates. It evokes all your emotions, it r

Cecilia London was my favorite discovery of 2015 and this series ranks among my top five favorite series probably EVER for two reasons:

1. this author can write. And I mean SHE CAN WRITE!

2. this series is one of the most original tales I've had a pleasure of reading.

It's hard to believe The Bellator Saga is this author's debut work. The writing is absolutely exquisite. The story is unique and truly one of a kind. If you are sick of 'same old, same old' kind of stuff, do yourself a favor and pic
One of my favorite teasers:

If ever a story has tortured my heart, Cecilia London’s Rhapsody is it. I didn’t think it was possible for Cecilia London to wring any more out of me with her Bellatore Saga series, but she sure did! Less blood and torture, more emotional pain, and pure flawed humanity and gut-deep love is on the menu as Caroline and Jack battle each other, their inner demons and Caroline’s survivor’s guilt as they fight to find their way back to each other.

I never thought I would fall in love with this series so hard, that’s how engaging the story of Jack & Caroline!

As we continue, Caroline was rescued from a mission that kept her in the hospital for three days and Jack is always there to tend to whatever she needs. After learning what happened Caroline blamed herself, but Jack assured her that it wasn’t her fault. Stubborn as always Caroline didn’t believe him.

As many of you know, I've been writing all of the books in The Bellator Saga simultaneously, starting in late 2013. I wrote much of Phoenix and Rhapsody early on, so that I knew how to properly structure the drama that was to come in Conscience and Sojourn. So a lot of books four and five is, to be blunt, older writing. Which is why it makes me so happy that people have responded so positively to them.

The first half of Rhapsody is perhaps even more gutwrenching than Phoenix, which is saying a lo

If you didn't think this series could get any better, you would be wrong. London has outdone herself again!

Caroline makes huge bounds in her emotional state in Rhapsody and it is a beautiful thing to read. As I have said before the author has an amazing craft of creating the emotions for you to experience first hand. I truly feel I know this characters personally and am deeply invested in their journey.

Jack is just perfect. Perfectly distraught and heartbroken. Perfectly supportive and encourag

The Bellator Saga is one of my fave series ever and Rhapsody, book 5, flawlessly and seamlessly picks up where book 4 left off. Even though I finished this book over a week ago I'm still reeling from the aftershocks of which there were plenty.

I don’t think I’ve ever read a series that kept me on such an emotional roller coaster. The books that made up the first trilogy in the Bellator Saga were a mix of past and present and centered around Caroline and her memories, her torture at the hands of the Fed and her escape. After all readers went through with her in the beginning, I never would have guessed that I would spend at least half of the second trilogy totally irritated with her.

Rhapsody is so emotional. It is quite gruelling to read in parts. I cried so much and not just a few tears, great big sobs, almost wailing. It is tough to read Jack and Caroline's pain, to watch them hurt each other and themselves but when they start to come out the other side stronger, it made my heart soar so high. Even now thinking about Jack and Caroline's love bring me to tears and makes me smile.
