This book was another absolutely amazing edition to a favorite
series of mine. I loved Malakai from his first introduction and he just kept
growing on me.
Now in the beginning of this book Mal had me shaking my head and thinking
"You dumbass mean jerk "
He said some things that had me lose respect for him. I actually cried a bit
because I really never expected him to hide behind excuses and be a jerk.
I didn't know how I could start to even like him again but I know Freya has a
way of tearing her characters down to the bare bones of their personality.
She was whispering in my ear. Tell me to be patient and then
she builds them back up layer my layer showing the reader the real person
Mal was a man.. Plain and simple. A man who made mistakes but always
made up for them. When this big beautiful man knew what he wanted, nothing
stood in his way. He wanted Kim and he not only wanted her physically but he truly wanted to know her and love her in every way.
Which is something Kim had zero experience with. Nobody had every just really gotten to know her and learn all the parts that made her who she was. He was so patient and just kind and he stole my heart.
Kim was living a shell of a life and she needed to bulldozing sensuality of Mal
to wake up her empty existence. She slowly came out of her shell and shed those
layers of hurt and resentment. She actually realized that she could have people
who cared and saw the beauty she owned. Not only on the outside but her caring
and sweet heart.
I love every one of these extraordinary characters and how Freya didn't just
write love stories, she built a family of people from all walks of life and in
that family I could see myself belonging. I shed quite a few tears at pivotal
moments in this story of healing, strength and faith. I didn't want it to end
and the brightest side of the ending I is I know that these characters won't
stop talking to Freya so I can't wait for more. Now give me Neil and Kendra.
Who says a younger guy can't be alpha.. Just wait. I see good things.
Loved this from beginning to end even when I was mad and crying. Because one
things for sure, Freya always makes it right.
It was like coming home when I started this book. But to have
the extra beauty of being in Con's POV. I loved this possessive, loyal, amazing
man even more in this book. He's loyal to his wife.. The love of his life and
he is supportive and stands by all of the people he cares about. .
While this story had a lot less romance it still has a very gripping plot. It
was much darker and reading is a very personal journey which is widely affected
by mood. The darkness and sad themes did bring me down quite a bit but I
gripped tight to my belief in this couple that good times would return.
Love prevailed and Con and Em got the HEA this author always promised.
I feel this author has a long and amazing successful road ahead of her.
So glad I experienced the love story of Con and Em.
One storm that will rage forever.
every Nashoda Rose book I go into it with this feeling of absolute
anticipation. I already know it's going to draw every emotion that I am humanly
able to feel and multiply it.
Kai was always one of the most mysterious characters Nashoda had created. I
wasn't even sure if he was a good guy. The truth is he's not good.. But he's
not bad either. What he is though, is complex and intense. He's loyal to those
that are important to him and honestly no body could be important to him until
London. Then London had life kick her in the face more than once. Raven came
from the ashes and London was buried. Kai wouldn't give up and I was absolutely
in tears of profound pain, anger, confusion and even understanding towards the
end of London resurfacing into Kai's "Braveheart". She had bravery
alright. Men would have broken and never recovered after the things this woman
Kai was the passionate loving dominant man that always came for
her..and saved her from the darkness while she completely gave him such light
I can't put into words how this author filled these pages with such destruction
that would turn to beauty all in the same chapter.
For each time she broke my
heart she would show me such hope and to never give up. All of our favorite
characters were such support and every moment of dialogue was important.
on every word. I simply didn't want it to end and yet I couldn't breathe at
times because this couple had been through so much.
Kai was perfect I'm his own way but one thing for sure was that he gave his
heart away to his Braveheart and never looked back. Absolutely no angst
regarding their devotion to each other. I love Nashoda for that.
Sigh.. The end for now but..
Connor, I need your story so bad because I feel this one's going to hurt.. And
yet I know its going to hurt in the best way. .
