Now to my review of Pepper and Con's story. I already loved these characters from the first book. Pepper is the ride or die best friend to Sam, Con's Sister-In-Law. Danger, plot twists, mushy love, and sweet Jonesy make this book so special. Con reminds me of my husband. He is sweet, fiercely protective, and HOT! I look forward to anything Mrs. Jackson publishes in the future. Thank you for sharing your talent with us, TJJ!
In the words of Persephone Ester Gunnach herself, “It’s just all happened so fast.”
You darn right Pepper. I’ve never in my life seen romance build in such a hurry. I tell you the love between Persephone and Connall took off like the speed of light. Which means that 299792458 meters per second equals a week. According to Claud Ane maths. If we want to get a tad scientific.
I’m ready to spill some hella hot tea. If you read Bound by Blood, which is the starter of this series. You’d know who Pepper and Con are. If you haven’t read it as yet I’ll enlighten you….a bit. Persephone aka Pepper is Samantha Moore’s horse loving, childhood friend. Yes, the same Samantha who is now married to Kade Gunnach. The king/ leader of the Claud Ane clan. Who turns out to be the brother of the vet doctor, Connall Gunnach. Stay with me here. This is some deep stuff.
Binding, mating and conversion (for humans) aren’t anything new in the world of the ‘cold ones’, the Anes. But to most humans, these concepts are foreign. Samantha didn’t mention the whole truth to Pepper. So she really was in the dark until she started hearing voices in her head. No, the child isn’t going mad. Despite the fact that she has a stalker on her hand. However, she is pretty much sane. The voices she has been hearing in her times of distress is the soothing voice of her mate. You wanna take a guess who he is? Ding Ding. He’s Connall Gunnach.
They are brought together due to Samantha and Kade’s wedding. In the span of one week. I kid you not. They identified that they were indeed mates. Destined to be together forever. Roll out the fairy tale red carpet. I wasn’t surprised by this fact. Expected. There’s more. During that same week they were bound. Became husband and wife according to the culture of the Anes and moved in together. Talk about an eventful week.
I hate it that ‘I love yous’ were being thrown around like nobody’s business within just about three days of Pepper and Conn meeting each other. If the fact that they could communicate telepathically didn’t send her running. Surely the fact that he was a six hundred and some year old, semi-immortal being should have. But, just like her brave friend Sam she stuck it out. The sweet believability of fiction!
Aside from that, I must admit that Ms. Jackson knows how to tell a story. I may not have agreed with the romance timeline. Yet, I found myself loving the characters and their interactions. That’s what kept me turning the digital pages of this novel.
Get caught up into the Gunnach’s love fest. Surprises are waiting to throw you off balance. Happy Reading!
I kept reading hoping it would get better once the "recap" was over but as I read on, but it didn't seem to happen. The heroine just felt shallow and argumentative to me. I just did not like her. Also it felt like the author kept throwing in twist just to get this story to a certain length.
I got about half way through the book and seriously considered not finishing it but I was on a break between classes and had nothing else to do so I kept reading. It improved slightly as I read on so that I was able to finish it. Still I don't think that this book comes anywhere close to the first book. I would recommend the first book but I don't think I would recommend this one.
