4.5* Review written for Love Bytes Reviews.

So, real talk time: I don’t usually like books featuring sex workers. It doesn’t matter how good the reviews are or how many people have personally recommended it, I just never like them. Period. So, when Bleu was introduced way back in the first book of the Lacuna Chronicles Series, I was prepared to put up with his presence but that was it. As the books progressed, however, the absolutely most shocking thing happened; I found I actually liked Bleu. An

A Joyfully Jay review.

4.5 stars

Confession: I did not know this was part of a series until I started flipping through it on my Kindle and saw “Book Five of the Lacuna Chronicles.” Whoops! BUT, you’ll be pleased to know that if that intro sounds at all appealing, this can be read as a pretty satisfying standalone.

What this book does and does exceptionally well is share a set of utterly absorbing characters with you. And the part that floors me is that most of the time, they’re not even really LIK

So, La Vie is, obviously, Blue's story. If you've read the preceding four books, then you were probably intrigued by his character. His life was not easy and human nature dictates that we want all the down and dirty deets.

That said, I did not read the first four books. I usually do that in preparation for writing a review on a book that falls in the middle of a series, but not this time. I did try to get into the series as a whole, and I generally love sci-fi or dystopian themes, but I

This book was just as brutal as I thought it would be. It was AMAZING but so hard to read at times. I’m obsessed with this series and Bleu is my favorite character. Sadly I may have avoided this type of book if I wasn’t already hooked on the series. I think it helps that you know some Bleu’s future from previous books in the series. This book sort of fills in the holes while revisiting moments from things we have already read in the series. Bleu does

This series continues to amaze me!

Fair warning, for those readers looking for an easy formulaic romance, this is NOT it.
The worlds that A.M. Daily creates within her series are rich, dark, and sometimes difficult. While romance plays a large role in the plot, I wouldn't consider this a romance book. Additionally, this book, in particular, is rather grim, and I would advise readers to pay close attention to the warnings the author has provided.

This book follows Blue's story from before we first

Do you know the feeling you get when you read a very long book and you know it's long but you really don't care because you're enjoying the ride? And at the end of it all, you look back and truly feel that the book was worth every hour spent reading? That's exactly the kind of feeling I have after reading Blue's book.

I have read every book in the series and, granted, Blue was not my favourite character -in such an awesome universe, it's hard to pick only one, in fact. So I was not prepared to c
