Harlow has been through the ringer. Her connection to Alex has been severed and her whole life is a mess. Will she be able to make up for the rash mistakes she has made or will she and everyone else around her suffer because of her actions.
I am so extremely grateful to have received this ARC in exchange for an honest review. Thank you so much to NetGalley and the author for this amazing opportunity!!
I was SO excited for this sequel and I am so thankful for the author for getting it to us so quickly. The ending of the first book was AMAZING and such a shock and I needed the next book as soon as possible. Now that it is here and read it…. I still need answers y’all. Like the first book, this plot was full of twists and turns and gave me the shock of a lifetime and went in such a crazy direction that I never expected. The author also did a wonderful job of getting us back into the groove of the world and all its characters without over summarizing. I popped right into this unique and fantastical world without any bumps and as though I never left. It was awesome and I didn’t have to read the first book to get back into it. So thanks so much for that Ms. Minty!!!
Although we popped into the human world a couple brief times, the story took place mostly in the other fantasy world of Harlow and the lovely Jax…..It was very interesting getting to know more and more about this awesome world and all its very unique and original characteristics. I loved that we got to see more of Winter and get more glimpses into the world of Summer. Summer sounds as hot as California right now and it was like coming home. I can’t wait to find out more about this cutthroat setting in the next book! Ugh I need the next book or I’m going to die of impatience…..Especially with all of the plot twists that this author has thrust in this book…. I JUST NEED TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS NEXT!!!!
The story had so many perspectives in the first book and in the second there were even more and although I loved getting everyone’s point of view… WHERE WAS JAX’s perspective??!?! I needed it so bad and I honestly was just hoping that each new chapter would have it and so disappointed when it wasn’t. So that is literally my only complaint because other than that, this book was good y’all and the sexual tension was so real between some of my favorite characters. Harlow is such a sweetheart and I just need her to have a happy ending because the poor thing is STRUGGLING. Just when you think she will get some form of happiness, the rug is swept from under her. I just want her to be happy with Jax, that is all I ask. Also, some of the characters that I loved in the first book are straight up dead to me now… cough cough ALEX cough cough. I JUST WANT TO SLAP HIS SELFISH BUTT and for him to go away.
UGH I NEED THE NEXT BOOK NOW PLEASE!!!!
Overall, such a wonderful and thrilling sequel and I can’t wait for the next installment to this amazing series!!!
