*I received an arc from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review*

"Don’t you know, Jules? Everything worth doing is dangerous."

What I liked:
- Liam's character. I've said it before, but he's basically the only reason I decided to read this sequel.
- the final plot twist
- Jules and Caro's last fight and their story
- Ina and Jules's relationship

What I didn't like:
- Jules's stupidity (she's not always a dumbass but when she is oh boi does she deserve some bitch slaps)
- the writing. It's not bad but there were so many unnecessary (and long) descriptions of palaces, places and dresses. I don't remember if I had the same problem with the first book but it kinda pissed me off here
- the flashbacks. I did like the memories they 'told' but sometimes they interrupted the story and it was so annoying.
- the romance. Now, hear me out. It's not that I didn't like it, Jules and Liam have amazing chemistry. But in book one they were enemies and Jules refused to trust him. Evemore begins, she trusts him blindly and loves him to the moon and back. I mean, I really hoped to see them having their deserved happy ending but I would have preferred a slower burn.

All in all it wasn't a bad sequel, but I liked Everless more.
