I’d like to thank Buoni Amici Press for sending me an e-arc of this as well as the author for even bringing this sign up to my attention! So if you haven’t known for the last few weeks I went down a hole of reading Lindsay Cross books and I have fallen madly in love with it! I read Redemption River, Rebellious River and Resurrection River, Reckless River and Ravaged River.
So I feel like with this one it would be more beneficial if you read Rebellious River before jumping into this one because you definitely need more of the context. Although I think you could get the jist of what has happened from this book. Although if you really want to be benefited read the whole series from book 1. You won’t regret, it’s fabulous!
Anyway this story pretty much leaves from where we left Ethan’s, and Aaron and the team are looking for Celene and Caroline. This book hit me in the feels, I had so much emotions running through me when reading this book it was hard to keep up, the guilt that Aaron felt you could practically feel it pouring off the page, and also the guilt that Celine feels about Caroline and her not being back yet. As well as their relationship and the pain they felt. It was a whirlwind of emotions and I should have been prepared but I wasn’t. I was in no way prepared for feeling those emotions when they came.
I loved that we got to see some of the bonding between Caroline and Celene whilst they were kidnapped it was very interesting to see how important they were to each other and keeping each other alive. I really enjoyed those scenes.
This book was so amazing, I loved the plot, I loved that once Aaron had Celene back he wasn’t willing to let her go again. I loved their romance. Actually one of my favourite scenes in this book actually my two favourite is when Celene tells Caroline what happened when she and Aaron had sex. But even better than that was seeing it ourselves written. When the commander caught Celene and Aaron having sex I couldn’t help but laugh it was the best thing in this book and it was fabulous. I couldn’t have imagined it any better and it was my favourite bit in this book.
I do have to say I love Noni! I love that she makes an appearance in this book! Such great, characters, great plot, a great advance on the overarching plot running through the series!
