This two part series was dry and repetitive. I enjoyed the first 3 books involving Keira and Mount. I enjoyed Mags in their story but on her own, nope. This couple had lackluster chemistry. Even their history of a two week love affair makes no sense. How do you "wait" 15 years for someone you spent 2 weeks with.
Spoilers..... Moses rescues her from rape and they have amazing sex? In what world?! Then he returns randomly and she pushes him away only a couple days before falling back in love? With what? He's a "kingpin" with a two man crew and noone else to help him protect Mags? He's a wizard at making people disappear but he can't find the one man keeping him from being with the love of his life for 15 years? The brothel has such high security the kingpin can't get in but the killer can? Mount is the king of Louisiana but his daughter is kidnapped without tripping a alarm? Why can't Mags ask for Mount's help immediately after she's stabbed when she's under his protection?
There's too much wasted back story and random characters who do nothing for the story. The sex is boring and the dialogue is horrible. Moses and Magnolia spent more time being eye candy than having a believable story. Pages wasted on the same words over and over. The angst was a joke and the big reveal was corny. Stop making series and just make one good book.
Mags was a stretch, but Moses was just NO. No way can I forget how he terrorized Bump just to make his own life better. Bump is the one person who never did anything wrong, and yet he suffered the most. And that doesn't even cover all the crap he did in Biloxi.
I loved Mount almost from the beginning, so I have nothing against the antihero theme, but I just can't stomach Moses. I don't think there is anyway you can rehabilitate someone who doesn't have a conscious. Moses seriously sucks.
Instead of learning who the heroin was through her interactions and other side characters scenes. She just tells you about her own personality. I would have liked to see that she is a strong woman naturally through out the story instead of having her CONSTANTLY tell me in the her thoughts.
There is so much repeation. Spoiler: You can't forget the hero left her 15 years ago without a word, 1: because that's a pretty big deal for a romance. 2: Because the author won't stop telling us. Telling the audience in conversations with the two main characters, in the heroin's thoughts, in the hero's thoughts and in conversations with the hero and his friends. It is mentioned in at least every chapter.
We (the readers/audience) can grasp the seriousness of 15 years of leaving the girl you promised to return for without letting her know what's up. We get it!
To push believability of a story across to me,the story has to sound somewhat like it could happen in real life. I could not connect.
It ends on a (lame) cliff hanger and I have no desire to read the next book. It was recommended to me by a family member and that is the only reason that I finished it.

I really love this author and this is another great story.
Moses was totally different to how I thought he would be, I thought he would be really hard but actually he's a big softie. Don't get me wrong you wouldn't want to cross him but for Magnolia you could feel how much he adores her.
Magnolia is one tough cookie, she's had some terrible things happen to her in her past but incredibly strong to be able to live the life she leads. She doesn't roll over easily for anyone and I loved how she made Moses work for her attention. She needs a strong determined man to be able to stand beside her.
Electrifying chemistry, lots of heat and spark. Loved how the story unfolded and glad I waited to read this until the second part was published as I hate to wait when I've loved a book this much. Am diving straight into Madam Temptress.
Magnolia is one feisty lady and when Moses comes back into her life after a fifteen year absence sparks fly off the pages so fast my damm kindle almost blew up .. Without giving the plot away as you really need to read this for yourself suffice to say I can't wait for the next book
Magnolia is finally getting her story and Moses is just the man to take her all the way to a HEA...I hope. Can't wait for the second book!
A absolute knock out of a cliffhanger April can not come fast enough.
I love the heat and passion meghan shiws through each character. Pushing every limit going. I'm left in dieing need for more.
Thank you meghan
Growly, determined Alpha Hero!! Double Check!!
Unbelievably incredible second chance love story!!! Triple Check!!!
Mag’s is feisty, independent and fiery AF but I always hoped deep down she would have the same hopes and dreams as other women. I love her strength, determination and drive to do whatever is necessary for herself and her girls to keep them safe and healthy. Although it is nice to see a softer, more vulnerable side to the sassy Magnolia Maria Maison.
Moses I thought he would be a alpha you would love to hate, but he has wormed his way in and you can’t help but fall. He is growly, strong and determined AF and it is lovely to see Mags keeping him a little off balance and on his toes to keep her in line.
So far I am loving this story and cannot wait for what will no doubt be an epic finale to this incredible duet.
