Later books in the series!
This book was very interesting. I really liked how it started with the meeting of the two characters. Both already had such tough internal and external conflicts which really gave me the feeling that their eventual romance would struggle to get off the ground.
The book begins with the two characters engaging in a passionate night which ignites the fires of desire between the two of them. I like how it almost seems to work backwards in a way.
The format in which it was written really made the story easy to follow.
I really liked the twisted love triangle as well but almost wanted a bit more conflict on that front. The circumstance (which I won’t say because spoilers) that caused the trouble between Michael and Amber really hit home because it is something I experienced personally in my family.
Something I really would have liked to see more of was a bit more tension and more world building. I really like to feel immersed into a novel and I really didn’t feel that with this book. Although I have experienced a similar experience in my family, I felt like an observer rather than a participant.
That being said, I definitely will be returning for book two. I would like to read more of this author’s books.
