Overall rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Wow. I mean really just wow. This is a 100% stand alone novel from my favorite author Tijan. Getting an ARC copy from your favorite author is one of the best things to happen to a book lover, so going into it I was already excited. I had high expectations, which I try to not do often because usually it comes back to bite me in the behind. My expectations were met so well.

I really enjoyed this read because it's much different than Tijan's normal work. Usually, the main heroine is this tough, no bullshit type of girl but our heroine, Emma Martins, felt so realistic. I related to her on so many levels. I'm not trying to say she wasn't strong, because you can't be not strong and survive what she did. But I did find that she was relatable and when she couldn't possibly take the pressure anymore she wasn't too stubborn to not let others help her. Especially Carter.

*sigh* Carter Reed. I don't know what it is, but I love a good book boyfriend who carries a gun and is willing to "start war for you". Carter made my insides all gooey every time he talked to Emma. His character is so devoted to Emma throughout the entire book. She is always on the forefront of his mind through every decision that he makes.

(view spoiler)

Overall, this was a much different style than Tijan's other books, but that doesn't mean it should be put in the discard pile. She's evolving as an author, which shows her versatility. I can't wait for more more books by her.

Thanks for another amazing book, Tijan!!
