So before I get started I just wanna give a huge shout out to Nicole Jacquelyn in the form of two words:
For those of you who don’t speak uber excited rabid fangirl, lemme translate:
Thank you for finally writing a book in this series that didn’t do the whole flashback whack BULLshit that makes me literally wanna stab a bitch.
For those who know me, they know I fucking HATE this.
And because I want to explain the whole flashback whack phenomenon for those not in the crazy Val know – and yet feel lazier than a sloth on Xanax today – I borrowed the below explanation from my review of book three of this books sister series, [book:Craving Constellations|17859911]:
Just like the last book in this series, [book:Craving Redemption|18596498], this book started off with a bang. It drew you in with an awesomely exciting prologue that made you all giggly and fangirly inside about the awesome book you were about to read.
Fuck you, dear reader, we are now going to let that carrot of a cliffhanger dangle while we totally leave you in the lurch and rewind this VHS tape.
I hate this. I hate when authors do this. Especially when the build up to the moment-you-now-already-know-is-coming falls short of the mark, which sadly to say was the case here for me on this one.
But this time?
Normal fucking time progression.
And the choir that lives in my head fucking sang, people.
In fact, it sang so loudly and I felt so grateful that I even overlooked the complete and utter excuse also known as this books ending.
Because for real, this book HAD no ending it was so abrupt.
But, in light of the lack of flashback bullshit trade off?
Other than that, like I said, I really enjoyed this book.
And believe me – after the disastrous events that made up Craving Trix – I wasn’t really confident this book would pan out for me.
Don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t perfect. Will did some dumbass shit that made me wanna #headdesk like a secretary in a mosh pit of office cubicles, but overall I really enjoyed the story line itself and I simply love these characters.
Looking forward to more of this series.
