We’re flawed. Both full of scars and tormented by the shadows of our past. But in each other’s arms we find solace, we find perfection.
Adam Black. Gorgeous, demanding, a sinful dream that once was my reality.
I was his… until I walked away.
For months I’ve managed to curb my Adam addiction. I’ve focused my energy on my painting career. I’ve found success. Still there is a dangerous urge within me I can’t resist, one that tempts me to be reckless. My life isn’t complete.
Something is missing… he’s missing.
I left him, but fate again has made us collide. And this time I won’t turn away—I won’t be the only one revealing the scars of my past.
I was his… am his… and this time he’ll be completely mine.
I really enjoyed reading the first book, I thought that it made for an interesting read and I definitely couldn't wait to continue the series especially since the first book ended is a very jarring way.
Thank you so much to Xpresso Book Tours for providing me with a copy of this book. Just a quick disclaimer for those reading this review, I have received this book for free. Please note that this does not affect my opinions in any way. All thoughts are my own.
Whilst the writing between the first book and this one are not much different. This is by no means a negative thing as the pacing is quite good. You are sucked into the world of Evelyn and Adam but their steamy dialogue as well as by how quickly the pages seem to go past.
The first book took us through the whirlwind emotions of Evelyn but this book took us much further. We got to not only see her emotions on the page but also more insight into Adam's. This book starts off with action and doesn't seem to slow down from there. I loved how exciting the plot is and also how we got to see Adam and Evelyn's relationship move from a strictly physical relationship to a more in-depth and emotional one. The stakes in this book are definitely higher and it makes it even more difficult to put the book down.
One of the great things that I like about these characters is that they are in one way or another realistic. There is a part of them that most readers can find tangible and accessible. I also really enjoyed how imperfect these characters are. Yes, they are these devastatingly gorgeous characters that cause everyone to take a pause to admire them, but on a deeper level, these characters are flawed and make mistakes.
Overall, this series is not for the light-hearted especially this book. This book goes even deeper than the first and leaves us wanting more of Evelyn and Adam's story than ever before. The writing just takes hold of you and the dialogue keeps you enamoured. The plot has you sitting on the edge of your seat waiting for the next heart-stopping moment. The characters make you feel connected and allow you to empathise with them. Overall, I really enjoyed this book and look forward to what happens next. Thank you so much to Xpresso Book Tours for providing me with a copy.
V.H. Luis is the author of the Black Series, an erotic romance trilogy that follows the love affair of Evelyn Snowe and Adam Black. Her debut book WAKING to Black, was released May 2, 2018, and the subsequent sequels FADING to Black, and SURRENDERING to Black, will follow shortly thereafter.
I’m a born and bred Miami Girl–and proud of it! I would wear shorts and flip-flops everyday of the week if I could. Growing up in Miami, surrounded by my parent’s heritage has made me proud of my Cuban ancestry. Cafecito and a guava pastry for breakfast? Yes, please! Salsa music while I tidy the house? Of course.
If I’m not busy scribbling notes about a story, I’m painting, listening to music, or spending time with the love of my life–my son. If I decide to travel, I bring the whole family (in-laws included), or at least I try to, because life is too short not to spend it with family; one of the many lessons my father taught me.
Yours in Reading,Melleny
