Ok I love love this series and I was soooo excited to catch up with Ethan. In this book Ethan is still super sexy and domineering but his softer side starts to shine through and it is friggin' adorable.
"I love you and I never want to let you go."
"Fuck me into next week. By all that's holy, that was frightening! Tell me that was an incarnation of Satan back there!"
"It's called trust, Brynne, and it is by far the hardest gift to give away."
"But I love you, Brynne, and I have to be with you. Isn't that enough?"
I loved this book and loved seeing Ethan's softer side. It was great to see Brynne become the woman she was meant to be while the bond between the two was explosive yet endearing.
And the good news is that I just saw that there will be more books in this series. Yeah!!
4.5 Thumbs up!
