Why did I think I would get any answers this time around? Well, my hopes were dashed :( There will be no romantic relationship between Ellie and Theo. I was sad for a moment, but now my hopes are pinned on her and Linc. Call me fickle lol. That would be so hot though. Hopefully these authors already predicted my wishes and book 3 will make all of my dreams for this series come true.

There wasn't as much action in this installment. It was more about the characters confronting their feelings and ad

4.25 stars

The warning on the books did not lie. This is some dark stuff, and I’m not sure how to characterize it.

Despite the BDSM elements, it’s not erotica or romance. In fact, I’m still not entirely sure who the “hero” of the book is going to be. There are several men in Ellie’s life that I truly like and can easily see her ending up with. But whether she will or won’t is anyone’s guess. Her romantic liaisons range from Theo, the step-fath

4/5 Stars!!!

This series just keeps getting better!

I have a fascination with this series that keeps sucking me in a little bit further with every book. No answers in this one. This is the psychological mindf*%k that delves into the psyches of our characters. Not enough action for you...too bad, because you just don't want to miss the development the authors throw at us in preparation for the final installment.

Ellie is a badass and Linc...oh, I love Linc! I want these two together so bad I can t

The Hopeless book 2 in the Huntress series.
This series just get better and better, In this one we see Ellie struggle a bit with her job she knows she is a trained assassin. She struggles with what she has to do, then once it is done she feels guilty…

Can Ellie really find redemption? Wait and see.

This one has a few twists in it and I don’t want to say to much in case I spoil it.

But to understand this book you must first read book

Book 2 in the series. I really enjoyed book 1, but book 2 wasn’t as fulfilling for me. Maybe it is because book 1 was 144 pages and book 2 is only 71, so there is less happening. So Ellie is torn between her feelings for Theo and Linc and the need to rescue a baby and be a good mother to right the wrongs of the past. I found the storyline good, but there was a bit of jumping in the plot that left me confused. Like when Ella and Theo are at dinner and the next minute they are “saying goodbye” at ...more

4.5 Stars! Whoa! Linc was a huge question mark for me in the first book and now I really loved getting to know Ellie's loyal best friend. Things get twisted up Ellie is off her game in this book. I didn't see any of that coming. Full review coming on The Smut-Brarians. ...more

Action, love, and suspense

I love Ellie, she's such a strong character, but she loves just as strong. This book gives a bit more insight into her relationship with Linc. It continues with the story line of Remy's death and the fallout. It also gives a twist on Theo and Ellie's relationship. If you read the Huntress, you'll love Hopeless!!! I know I did! ❤️

This is the second book in the series and although there was a bit more drama in the lives of Ellie, Theo and Linc I just feel that the ending was a bit rushed. Will definately be reading Nameless.

This is book 2 in a series and you MUST read The Huntress first in order for The Hopeless to make sense.
Ellie MacGuire is at her wits end. Meeting her marks baby girl does something to her insides.
With Theo being all into Journey, Ellie is all messed up. I was really hoping for a hot taboo installment...well, I guess I'll take a more emotional installment. Ellie is having second thoughts. She doesn't really want to do her "job" anymore, her relationship with Theo is evolving, and honestly? The H

The Best Parts:

I have been waiting for this book to come out since I finished the first one, and it’s not because the first one ending with a cliffhanger or anything like that. But because these characters are everything. Dawn and Kristen created a story and characters that suck you in and consumed your life. Even after you finish this story you will want more, and you will see then in people you see out in the real world.

Ellie is such an independent woman, who may not truly know what she wante

I very much enjoyed the first instalment to this series, finding it a breath of fresh air with a strong-willed heroine who owned her sexuality and cold-blooded nature. It was dark, it was interesting. I was incredibly excited to finally have the opportunity to delve into this sequel.

I confess, I was slightly disappointed.

While there she needs to come to terms with her decision about Theo. Theo has moved on in life with Journey. Linc has stepped up to the plate and is looking after the baby. He is also coming to terms with his own thoughts and issues. When a shooting takes place and a hi

Picking up a bit of time after the end of The Huntress we find ourselves in the middle of one of Ellie's jobs. Easy in and easy out, but it's what left behind that has her questioning her choices and ruining the high she usually feels. While she is making life decisions; Theo is embarking on his own separate journey, which I'm not sure how I feel about and we get to go inside Linc's head for a bit.

This piece gave us very little answers but sure was a ride. We are left with a job gone bad, lots

I loved the story and the twists..There are feelings, Ellie's questions and guilt about her job,about the men.. and also some action..but as always I want more and more..can't wait for book 3 and see what the authors come up with.

Sooooo mean ending like that! It's better than the first book and that's saying something because it was awesome. You get more Linc in this one as to opposed to the first one that just makes him look like Ellie's henchman. Ellie has a conscience that you didn't expect especially after having been a trained assassin for so long. I love the drama with every twist and turn that it's literally takes you two seconds to speed through this amazing story. I cannot wait for what it to come next! ...more
