Every time I pick up a Sasha Gold book I am taken by surprise. It's like she simply gets better and better. The Queen of slow burn, with Sizzling sexual tension so thick I feel like it's seeping from my kindle with its intensity. This book took those elements to an entirely different level. I went from curiosity to anger at Trig.. That was the first part of the book. My anger had this skin deep feeling of wonder, confusion and frustration. How could he make me so mad and still I needed more of him? Then slowly like the magician Sasha is she peeled back those thick layers he's got built up like the scars he wears. He went from protector to a man who'd do anything just to provide, guide and simply be a part of this young woman's life. His attraction grew at a level that turned my emotions on their head. He fell so slowly yet so completely I actually felt the love so deep I had tears. There's nothing, and I mean nothing like an alpha hero who is dead set on taking on the world for the woman he loves. Maggie had sadness, and loneliness in her life.. Like a castaway she never felt like she belongs anywhere. Trig was a mystery to get, strong, angry and full of power she couldn't help but respond to. Her fear turned to longing and her response grew to a soul deep yearning. When Trig stepped up with a bone deep dedication I sighed with romance perfection.

Sage was Mayson perfect
all the way through. The Boom knocked he and Kim a little sideways with
the struggle they encountered from outside forces. But after the rubble
settled this man, this beautiful man laid claim to Kim and redeemed
himself in every way.
Loyal from first sight and protective like the
Mayson he was raised to be. Sage and Kim set the pages on fire.
many precious bonds in this story. Sizzling hot love scenes and emotions
of every kind. I devoured it overnight and I just sighed closing this
story with a smile on my face.
When I heard about this story coming out I was ecstatic. Coming back to
Jeru felt like the anticipation of a family reunion. I knew we'd be able
to see all the characters I grew to love in The Bird and the Sword. I had so much curious longing for Kjell's story and was totally not expecting where Amy took it. I
read certain authors blind. I don't try to find out info on this short
list of authors like I do normally. I avoid so many elements that go
against my beliefs that I usually have to know ahead of time. I am glad I
didn't ask here. If I'd have known where it would take me. How it would
break me , hurt me, and then finally heal me, I might have not read it.
I don't think there's a way to accurately describe the pure emotional
upheaval without spoiling the whole story. I did come to a realization. Love hurts. There isn't always black and white. There's so many shades in between. There's not always a right or wrong answer.
loyalty and bravery will always be something I think about when
someone's needing a true hero.
He's the perfect example of what it means
to love with sacrifice. His heart was no match for the power of Sasha's love and devotion.
This slave woman, this red-haired paragon of virtue and
long-suffering, would be his undoing, and it would not be a sweet
Sasha had the toughest road to travel and a
heartbreaking loyalty to all that she loves. Sometimes we have to break
our own hearts and Sasha truly had to live through unbearable
consequences. While there was times I didn't think I'd survive this
story I couldn't put it down. That's where my trust for Amy came into
play. I trust her to always put my heart back together and even though
it's in pieces, barely put together, it's at least still beating. I trusted Amy and she came through. She proved that there isn't always the perfect answer but there is perfect love and perfect mercy. Because it hurts doesn't mean it's not beautiful.
If you read this story. Don't ask for spoilers. Just challenge yourself and experience it blind. You don't know your own strength until you do.
Grady had me wanting his story like crazy in Vines, book 1 of this amazing series. I have a soft spot for damaged heroes who need the love of a good woman and a place to call home.
Then add to this my other favorite element, a heroine running from her past needing a hero. While there is a delicate balance between needing the love of a good man and at the same time being strong enough to survive and make it on your own , Brynne made it look simple.
Maya immediately showed mystery and strength. No damsel shaking and weak kneed. She exuded confidence and just plain smarts. She's super funny at times too.
I love the medical field as it's my life's work so the addition of that side of the story really spoke to my heart. I work closely with an assisted living facility and these people become close like family to those care takers in their lives. This includes medical professionals who take care of them. I have to say I laughed so hard and was just so entertained with all of the characters.
Grady proved all my thoughts correct. He was strong, loyal faithful and brave. His past shaped him into something fierce and protective but he was already an amazing brother and guardian from the start.
Maya came into his life at a critical time not only for him but for herself.
Everything I love and everything I need in my romance was found in the pages of this epic read.
Seriously Grady and Maya are simply my kind of love story.
