Next book please... anyone know the release date??
Iam not a huge paranormal fan. I have a handful of authors I enjoy their work, but over all Iam not drawn to this genre. However, Amelia Hutchins is one of my favorites. I love this series.. I love Ryder. I love the story line. I love the way it is written. I just love everything about it.
When I 1st picked up Fighting Destiny (Book 1 in the series), it was on the recommendation of a fellow book friend who swore I would love it. As we debated it, due to my lack of love for all things paranormal, she bought me the book. Said I had to read it.. so I did. She was right. I loved it. ANd I have continued to love it.
This is book 3 in the series. And one of the things I love about this series, is that it doesnt feel drawn out. You know what I mean.. one of those series that should of ended 2 books ago, but the author keeps dumping in everything but the kitchen sink to stretch it out and keep it going.. there is always so much information and newness to these books, that you are left feeling complete but ready for more. Nothing is repetitive, and the author has woven a beautiful tale of love and destiny in a world that she has created out of pure brilliance... The fantasy comes to life and dances across the pages leaving you wanting to jump into the book just to experience the realm she has brought to the pages. It is genius. So even if you are not a huge paranormal fan...give this one a try.
Ryder.. *sigh* I love him so... can someone please find me a big bad Fae like him and bring him to me? I would be eternally grateful, and totally willing to let them look at him and bask in all of his gorgeous, alpha, dirty talking, bad ass glory... not sure I could share him tho... Ryder is by far one of my favorite leading men. He is over the top alpha, who stops at nothing to get what he wants. He has a brilliant way of playing on words that will make your head spin. There is always more to what he is saying, and part of what I love about these books, is trying to figure out what he is NOT saying. He is deep, he is mysterious, he has a reason for everything he does. But you can't figure out what those reasons are, and the mystery that surrounds him makes you want to skip work and loose yourself within the pages of this carefully crafted world. He is dominant. He is a master in the bedroom. He refuses to take no for an answer and he always gets what he wants...
Some of the pieces to the puzzle that unfolded in this book made my eyes pop out of my head. The truths that were hidden and came to light, caught me off guard. And the crumbs that were left as a trial to the next book left me itching to get my hands on the next one... release date??? Anyone??
Synthia ... bad ass heroine. One of the best female leads I have met to date. She is tough, she isnt afraid of a fight. She stands up for what she believes in and will take the fall for those she loves. She plays hard and she loves harder. And as she fights to escape a destiny she has no desire to lead, I have enjoyed watching her come into her own as she unwillingly accepts the cards that she has been dealt. Syn learns a few things along the way in this one that leave her reeling. She fights to come to terms with the new information that has landed at her feet, and she refuses to take it laying down.
Another part I love about this series, it the relationship between Ryder and Syn. He is trying desperately to mold her into what he wants her to be, and she is pushing just as hard not to loose herself. And yet, he loves her sassy side and the fact that she will stand up to him. But the control freak in him, can't seem to help trying to dominate her into submission. What he needs to realize, is that if he were to succeed in this endeavor, he would no longer have the strong desire he has towards her, and it makes for a brilliant story that leaves you flipping the pages. I find myself talking out loud to Syn as I am reading. And let me tell you, sitting in a public place as you say "atta girl, show him what you've got" can get you more than one strange look, as the people sitting around you begin to slowly slide away thinking you have lost your mind.... but, that's ok with me. Because they would be rooting her on too.
Syn has managed to tame the beast, but don't tell Ryder. If you do, he will just mess things up trying to prove that he is the boss.. *snicker* ... typical man. She holds more power than either of them realize. And as their destiny begins to reveal itself, they will both learn just how much power she really has.
This is not a stand alone. This can not be read as a stand alone. You have to read the 1st 2 books in order to have any idea about what you are reading. Each book slides effortlessly into the next one. And each book adds more pieces to the puzzle. There are no major cliff hangers. Another thing I love. Each book ends leaving it feeling "complete". I use that word loosely because you know there is more to come. You are ready to find out what happens next. But at the same time you are not left trying desperately not to throw your kindle across the room because it ends with a major cliff hanger. I hope that makes sense, because it totally makes sense in my head... lol
Part of me hopes the next book is the last one, because Im dying to know how this will all play out. And the other part hopes there will be one after it because Im not ready for the story to end. Once you decide to give this series a try, hold on to your hats and prepare to enjoy the ride.
What... but... it.... ummm... uh... what the hell did I just read???
OMG this was crazy, and I LOVED it!!! Loved... really guys... I don't even know where to start, Im not sure how to give this a fair review without spoilers, Im having a hard time trying to put into words how I feel and what I think... mind f**k... total mind f**k. That is what this was. I didn't see any of it coming.
Ok, Iam a dark reads lover... anyone that follows me knows this. And I love anything twisted and I love all things that come out of the blue. And this entire book kept me on my toes wondering what in the world was going on. And when the last page was flipped, I just sat there... dumfounded trying to pick my jaw off the floor. This was one of the best collaborations I have ever read, and Iam adding this to my top 2014 reads. Im doing the hope dance, crossing my fingers, and saying prayers that there is a follow up book. Can I bribe someone to give me more?? The epilogue set up beautifully for a followup and I may have to turn stalker to make sure it happens.
Noah... wow... Loved him. He was vulgar, and rude, and just did not care what anyone thought. He was brutally honest, he knew the things he did were wrong on so many levels, and yet he made no apologies for who he was and what he did. He came across heartless and money hungry. And I LOVED him... he is going on my favorite men list... I don't even care a little bit that he is a kidnapper that breaks women down and then sells them to vile men as sex slaves... he can kidnap me any day as long as I get to listen to his dirty mouth...
Angeline.. what a psycho. There is no other word for her. She is whacked. Im positive she is not firing on all cylinders and I wasn't sure how I felt about her until about 50% of the way through the book. But she was so crazy I couldnt help but be intrigued and the need to know the driving force behind why she was the way she was made me stay up late and get little sleep as I was desperately trying to put the pieces of the puzzle together. And let me tell you... I lost my jaw to the floor when it all began to come out... my heart actually ached for her and I found myself excusing her psychotic tendencies and finding really good reasons for the things she did. She was a bad-ass heroine and she made no excuses for who she was. She was emotionally turned off.. I swear her heart was black and didn't actually have a beat... some of the things she did will turn your stomach.
Chastity .. at first I was thinking she was a thrown in character. I couldn't figure out why she was even there. I will tell you that the reason she is a player in this, is because Noah kidnaps her for a client. She seemed like an odd little part to the story. Then I thought I had it figured out how she fit the puzzle. Then I found myself shocked at how she ended up fitting. Then the ending came and I was like wth?? Where did that come from?? Because I NEVER saw that coming.
This is where I will warn you. If you have trouble with torture, mind games, rape, kidnapping and general mind f**ckery, this book is not for you. There are some scenes that had I been in a movie theater, I would of been peeking behind my fingers, cringing at what I was watching. Some of the stuff is just plain out there, it's brutal and it is down right sick at times. I have to wonder a little bit about the sanity of the authors, and then I decided... screw it, because sane or not, they produced a brilliant book. It is going to be a hard act to follow, but as I said, Iam not beyond stalking to see it happen.
