“I’m never going to stop loving you, Caroline. It’s just not possible.”
Major Caroline Gerard returns from a dangerous mission battered and bruised. Terrified to confront the emotional and physical gap between her and her husband, she’s determined to do whatever it takes to avoid reality.
Commander Jack McIntyre has been tasked with saving American democracy, but he has to save his marriage first. He’s desperate to regain the passionate connection that he and his wife once shared. And a man on a mission will sacrifice anything to succeed.
In the meantime, the rebellion is in need of a catalyst to spur international action to stop President Santos’ increasingly unstable behavior. As Caroline and Jack repair their hearts, each day brings new secrets and new challenges, and a revelation that could shatter everything they thought was true.
Rhapsody is the fifth book in The Bellator Saga. It should be read after the first four books in the series.

How do I start my review???
Cecilia, I do really love you, from the bottom of my heart (I’m not believing that one day I would say that), but I enjoyed being torn apart, crushed and having my poor heart tearing into pieces. Am I sadist? Maybe but Rhapsody is a masterpiece, where all your senses are gonna be on alert, brilliantly executed. Sharp as a knife. Leading with a deft hand! You are EVIL!!!
For this second last book, I was mindblown, pissed off and so into it. I think this series should be labeled with a warning : be ready to hold your breath and to suffer slowly, madly, deeply.
This book drove me insane, reacting to each moment, making me feel so much. I shifted from an emotion to another so quickly.
The author knew how to write about pain, psychological distress with brio. Letting you feel all the anger and turmoil of emotions. Sometimes, I really needed someone to talk to.
In this world, where democratic values were annihilated, Jack and Caroline were fighting, pushing each other until madness. Trying to find each other but unable to communicate. One step forward, three steps backwards.
How to reach someone who almost forgot how to live in community, being loved, when all you feel is anger, regret and guilt?
His soulmate, Caroline, was lost to her pain so deeply, in a very frightening way. Psychology had an important part and it was so interesting. Watching Caroline acting like a mean person from healing progressively. And the road is full of pitfalls, fights and inner battles.
I read this book in one sitting, in awe of Cecilia London’s work, where each part was well dosed, and provided an high level of suspense. Emotionally and erotically charged!
