Ok, so I have mixed feelings about this book. There were parts and concepts about this book that I loved and there were others not so much.
Let's start with the not so much first to it out of the way and then move on to the fun stuff. There were quite a few timeline errors and mixed up POV's which were a bit distracting however I do acknowledge that both of those are hard to catch and that is the tough part of more than one POV.
I did like the conenction between Braeden and Phoenix but I felt at times their relationship esclated way to fast especially the sexual part. With the sex parts of the book they felt a bit random and thrown in their to spice up the book but I didn't feel the relevance of some of them. Don't get me wrong I am the last thing from a prude but they didn't quite fit. Also with Phoenix the poor thing can she really have like the worst luck ever. Holy Crap how much can a poor girl go through without completely breaking.
Now enough about that let's talk about the good parts. I loved loved loved the concept and idea of this book and I am a huge fan of fate, destiny and broken souls. The twist near the end was so unexpected but awesome. I did NOT see it coming at all but I think it may have been my favorite part and made the journey of this book worth it.
In the parts where I did feel the connection between the two it felt right. Soulmates and fate are a strong force and when things are meant to be they have a way of happening no matter what. With Braeden and Phoenix this seemed to be the case for them.
All in all a good book but with highs and lows for me. I was leaning more to a 3 but because of the twist which I keep thinking about I will jump it to 3.5 thumbs up.
