So this bad boy gets all the stars.
And I’m gonna hug it close.
Because it was good.
But mainly because it actually made this cold-hearted little shrew shed a tear *gasp.*
It’s an almost-Christmas
miracle anomaly, I tell you.
Seriously though, I think the rugged and dry terrain that is my cheek might experience a mudslide as a result of this never before seen influx of sudden moisture.
But I digress.
My favorite foul mouthed fucking character in this book?
Ryke, Ryke, Ryke.
Cause I mean, really, how do I love thee?
Let me counts the ways…
Oh man. Le fucking swoon.
But most of all?
Loyalty is something that I personally value above pretty much all else.
And that’s what I think I love most about this entire series.
The six main characters – Connor, Rose, Ryke, Daisy, Lo and Lily – they are all LOYAL to each other.
“‘Let’s make a pact. If anyone hassles our sisters tonight, we confront them and handle it with necessary means…’
She has a knife strapped to her thigh.
‘What, you planning on shanking someone tonight?’
‘I plan on being resourceful and cautious…I also have a taser.'”
Even when they are insulting each other and constantly throwing the middle finger – they have each others’ backs.
As couples, as friends, as brothers, as sisters, as FAMILY.
And I just LOVE it.
His loyalty to Daisy.
“Wherever you go, I’ll go.”
His loyalty to Lo and Lo’s loyalty to him.
“I miss my brother and if you won’t fight for the thing that makes you happy, then I’m going to fight for you.”
And to Connor.
And to ALL of them.
“The relationships that take the most effort and time become the mightiest in the end.”
And boy are they ever mighty.
These characters and this series have a very special place in my heart now. And even though I am SO sad the series is over…they will always live on my kindle.
And I will re-read the fuck out of them forever.
