“Not once have you ruined my life since you walked into it. You have bettered me in so many ways.”
After diving head-first into the The Man I Can’t Have (Wards Duet #1), I waited with baited-breath to be fully immersed into the conclusion of this stunning duet, The Man I Need. And I can tell you right now that I could not have loved it anymore. It was the perfect mix of slow burning romance, forbidden love and gut-wrenching emotion. One of the things I was most looking forward to whilst reading The Man I Need, was to finally get the answers to the burning questions I had after being left with a monumental cliffhanger in book 1. This book really delivered in a big way and the wait was absolutely worth it.
I am going to keep this review very short, sharp and to the point, because I’m finding it hard to talk about it without divulging spoilers from either book one or book two and trust me when I say it, this duet needs to be read spoiler free. The second book picks up directly where the first one left off and my heart was beating almost out of my chest with the anticipation of what was to come next.
Marcel and Gabby have been through so much and their journey has been tumultuous to say the very least. I wanted nothing more than to see them reach their ultimate happiness and for everything to work out. I was so nervous that at times I actually had to stop reading and take a breath, because I wasn’t sure if my heart could take much more.
I loved both books immensely and I became fully invested in Marcel and Gabby from the moment I started this duet. Their journey was certainly not easy and at times, had me questioning if this agony and heartache was all worth it, but let me tell you, it was. This story is not for the faint of hearts; it will tear you up inside and you will become an emotion wreck, well I was, that’s for sure.
Marcel’s love for Gabby knew no bounds and his kind of unconditional adoration, yearning and devotion had me swooning beyond all belief. To me, he was just the ultimate hero. If you are a fan of slow-burning, forbidden and emotional romances then I can not recommend this duet enough. My heart is still recovering, but the rollercoaster of emotions I endured was all worth it, and if you’re anything like me and thrive on the emotional sides of romance, then you will devour this duet as I did.
