How can I sum up eight hours of enthralling reading??
Three incredible books that gonna stuck you to your seat!
I won’t write a review for each book but more as a whole part. When I read the prologue, I was already hooked, the mood was settled and just when things was getting interesting, I had to discover how the main characters; Jack and Caroline met and finally got into this situation. Two political opposites. One EPIC love story!
Alternating between present and past, mostly through Caroline’s POV.
I’ve never though being hooked into a political plot tainted with a huge erotic background. And the author, Cecilia London managed to pull the strings with brio, suspense on top!
This woman is a force of a nature. A beautiful soul with a clever mind and a hot tempered side.
Jack McIntyre … Sexy Silver fox, charismatic, suspenders lover … damn sexy!
Anyway when it comes to that man, I was sold. More experienced, with an smoking hot charisma, I was under the spell. More aged, with a Playboy-millionaire reputation, he meant trouble! A complex man with so many sides but only dedicated to the one he loved, mysterious and mesmerizing.
When he met again Caroline, after some first disappointments, he wanted to be her friend but couldn’t deny the chemistry and hot sexual vibes between them … These two could put a room in fire, even just by their witty banter and sexual innuendos!
Oh my … I love the smutty moments in the books! Caroline was pretty adventurous and bold out there, exploring her deepest desires and Jack was aimed to please. Alpha-dominant and just smoking hot, be ready for some cold showers. Intense, passionate, rough, and kinky, these moments were putting their relationship to another level, revealing how much they craved, loved each other, with a complete trust.
I have to warn you that was only the tip of the iceberg because be prepared for a freaking tsunami of emotion, not only about their love story but also what was coming next : a period of extreme drought, when Caroline had to fight for her life and her ideals while a conspiracy was preparing, under the shadows, waiting for the best moment to strike. When this moment came, nothing would ever be the same.
Even if I had to say that the second part of the book was pure torture to me, with some unbearable times, when I was almost praying for the coup de grace, and the darkness was invading Caroline’s body and soul, I felt hope. This story stirred so many emotions. A constant battle of power, in the political arena where everything could change in a blink of an eye, and the world you knew didn’t exist anymore.
The writing was stunning, with enough foreboding to challenge the reader; the political narrative was elaborated and perfectly combined with the romance.
As you might guess, I loved it!
5 stars are not enough and if I don’t read the second trilogy soon, I’m gonna lose it, really!
Highly recommended, a must read!
