Baking is her only solace. Cookies, cakes, ingredients coming together, they make sense. 
A professional fighter walking into her kitchen? Not so much.

I’d like to thank Give me books promotions for sending me an e-arc of this book it is very much appreciated. So I read Power Play and Tap Out and loved both of them so I was very excited to dive back into this world again. It’s one of those worlds I never ever want to leave.

So I love the text handles at the beginning as this story and the rest of the series does actually feature heavily on their text conversations and honestly they are my favourite thing because they remind me so much of any group chat that I have ever been apart of. I also love that we now have a family tree at the beginning so we know exactly who is related to and part of what team and I found that information extremely useful.

I really liked Holly she was such a breath of fresh air I loved the constant run of Christmas songs she has and I love how passionate she is with baking and I love that’s all she wants to focus on right now. We immediately are told that Holly is hiding something and oh my god this is the most drawn out mystery throughout this book and when it was finally revealed. I was like wow.

I love Vince I have loved him since we first saw him and especially how much he stuck up for Rocky too. So I knew when we had his sister’s back this book was going to be fabulous and you know what Vince really didn’t let me down. He was so sweet and I love him. And I must say damn can the man seduce. The way he seduced Holly, damn I would have fallen straight into his arms.

I love how easy Holly was accepted into the coven and it was like she had been there from the start and I loved that. I also love that Vince finally gave in and asked the coven for help when it came to winning Holly over. I also thought the nicknames they gave each other was so cute “Muffin” and “Cupcake” they were so sweet and fit them perfectly.

The sex scenes were written amazing and damn Alley Ciz is great at that.

The plot of this book was really good I did not see what happened coming. (This is me trying to not spoil.) All I know is when it did happen it broke my heart and damn it destroyed me. But my heart was put back together. I thought it was really interesting when it came to the explosive part of this plot and I did not see any of it coming but I love the fact Holly had a plan. I know that isn’t making much sense but it will by the end of it, let’s just say Holly’s secret finally reveals.

I really liked Vince and Holly and they were so cute and sweet and I loved them so much. I loved the characters, the plot and the story and I can’t wait to see what Alley Ciz comes up with next.
