2.5-3 Stars of Disappointment
It kills me to rate another KA so low, but that’s just how I feel about this book.
I’m going to keep this short…just because.
It started off really strong and I was loving it.
I just knew Deacon was destined for greatness.
Until it wasn’t.
The ENTIRE book was about Deacon and Cassidy and their relationship.
No Rock Chick-esque crime/shenanigan aspects.
No Reese or Finn-esque side characters.
Which would have been totally fine…except that it started to get really slow and kind of redundant.
Also – in the beginning of the book, there is a “disclaimer” regarding some bdsm/butt play shenanigans that were going to be afoot – and I was like YES!
Bring. It. On.
Well, it got brought on. And it was…Okay.
Until it wasn’t.
I’m sorry, but a supposed “Badass” (a word that was soooooo overused in this book, it’s ridiculous) like Deacon? I just don’t see him allowing ANYONE to shove a butt plug up his ass..
There are other ways to prove trust, people!
The words “Badass” and “Beauty” need to get shoved up someone’s ass though, I tell you what.
And when Cassidy finds out (or thinks she finds out) about Deacon’s secret, she sends him off with an overplayed Christina Aguilera song??? REALLY?
I don’t know.
It started off so strong and I was so excited about it. But, at the end of the day…I just thought the story got boring (by 80% I was almost skimming…skimming a KA!!!), there wasn’t enough real communication between the characters when there needed to be most (instead we got butt plug-gate), and overall this just fell flat for me.
All I know is, a book that I have been anticipating for EVER (and probably the most that I can remember in recent years) is the final of the Three Series.
So even though this one missed the mark for me, I have my fingers crossed for that one.
Please be good, please be good, please be good…
