Emersyn Sharpe has received the most shocking news of her life and the reason the 82 Street Vandals are interested in her. But are they only interested in who she was or who she is?
I received this ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review. I am soooooo extremely and amazingly grateful for the opportunity because I am obsessed with this series and all its characters, but this third installment of the series just left me frustrated and with so many more questions!
I have been waiting for this third installment with such grave impatience and when I got the ARC, I was in absolute heaven. It was so great to be back with the characters and into the story, especially after that cliffhanger at the end of the second book.
Although I loved the characters and the steam was absolutely AMAZINGGGGG.. The plot and the timeline kind of just drove me just a little insane. I felt like it was just ALL over the place and I have more questions now than I did when I started the book and I’m just annoyeddddd…. Especially due to the fact that the next book won’t be out until February.
We got to learn a lot more about the men and more about Emerysyn’s background which was awesome and although I enjoyed that aspect, the layout of how it was done seemed so choppy. The timeline went back and forth between past and present and in many different perspectives which was a plus and a curse because some of the stories didn’t really make sense to the overall plot and I was left with so much confusion.
Through the different flashbacks and perspectives we also got to know more about the dynamics of the gang, but enough for anything to really make sense. I just felt like the author was just trying to squeeze a LOT of information in here and because of this the plot was left on the side burner…
I am also sooooo confused on where the story is going really. I feel like nothing was really accomplished in this book and I just still have so many questions and I just feel so frustrated. I just want all the answers as well as the steam and the boys….. I need February to come as soon as possible please.
Overall, I really enjoyed learning more about the characters, but I just wish the story had progressed just a little more or I wasn’t as frustrated.
