***Spoilers Abound – Enter at Own Risk***
So this is probably my least favorite of the series so far, because, whelp…
And not only cheating, but Ash-banging-someone-Eiren-can’t-fucking-stand cheating.
Holy effin’ burn, peeps.
There, there, Val. There, there.
Now, normally this is a deal breaker for me – of epic proportions; however, in this case:
1) I was so invested in the series and the characters that I just had to continue.
2) For whatever reason, cheating doesn’t bother me AS MUCH in m/m as it does in m/f. I am not sure why this is the case. It doesn’t make sense to me either. But whatevs, it is what it is.
So there’s that.
Then, AFTER said cheating, Eiren leaves for a while and comes back.
To someone ELSE.
And as though that isn’t enough, the new guy is a righteous dude and everyone loves him. Even Ash.
So you can’t even have the satisfaction of hating the guy.
Some other righteously annoying shenanigans ensue – think death and STDs.
But hey, at least I got some really good groveling and an HEA.
And I still love the series.
