This story had me alternately biting my nails, teary eyed, and smiling as we finally get to see what makes Madlyn tick. And even more importantly Jared gets to see the side of her that she's never exposed, that she kept hidden all these years and the reasons why. Recruiting her for his family's law firm is distasteful to him at the start, but necessary. And yet, once he gets beyond the surface, his reaction to Madlyn shocks him - that he can be attracted to someone who has caused his friends so much pain. But he is, and the sexual tension between them (only part of the nail biting phenomenon) culminates in some steamy and emotional love scenes as Madlyn's shell starts to crack. There are startling revelations, surprise twists and turns, but at its heart, it's a love story too. And not just romantic love, but the love of family and friends, the sacrifices one will make because of that love and the ultimate consequences. I've read and loved both books prior to this in the series, but for its heart and soul, this one is my favorite. 5 stars.
It left me feeling so emotionally connected and completely fulfilled, that I have to add to this one to my favourite list! (It was that good!)
After reading about Madlyn Robicheaux in the first book, you couldn’t help but think “what a low down, scheming, conniving person she is” and maybe the thoughts “why would Lexxi write a whole book about this woman?” comes to mind. But let me tell you, there is so much more to it than you can imagine! So much more! And I loved every minute of it, even the difficult parts! You kind of finish this book hating yourself for hating her so much from the first book - and that in itself was new for me and I enjoyed it none the less :D.
In this book we get a rare chance to see Maddie finally, not the Red Queen (although, the Red Queen made quite an appearance – gosh, and I loved it all to bits! And cried my eyes out at other parts too!). I don’t think anything can prepare you for how complex a person she really is.
Jared Marshall (Jen’s friend from the first book “Sweetened With a Kiss”) totally blew me away. I somehow thought that he was such a laid back, maybe passive guy and boy was I wrong. He brought such a heat and intensity to the mix that just had me all slacked jawed (and by gosh he could be so hot when he got ready...sheesh) He was just the perfect mix of gentleness and alpha male strength that I couldn’t help but love him. He and Maddie were a perfect fit.
I especially loved the parts when we got to see Maddie's dreams; they were so precious to me for so many reasons. It was so sweet and heart wrenching at the same time. Not to mention Jared’s ability to just “see” her and just connect with her was so epic. Maddie's grandfather was perfect villain to centre all my dislike on, I wasn’t even sorry (okay maybe a little) when------SPOILER------- [he died (spoiler)]. I was so proud of the way Jared stood up for Maddie in the ending, even though it cost him in ultimately, but she deserved someone to be there for her and take some of that burden away.
As the sparks flew and the plot unfolded I was on an emotional roller coaster. I mean I was so invested in everything that I just couldn’t put this book down (well… “Couldn’t put the Ipad down” but you get what I mean) I was turning pages like a wild fire just to see what happened next.
Did I mention how great the writing was as well? It just roped you into the twists and turns, the highs and the lows, the sad and the happy like a flowing river and I was just floating along for the ride. Amazingly written! Great book! 5 stars
I really liked Maddie in this book. I know some readers hate her and while she did some mean things in book 1, I did not hate her. She always came across as sympathetic because she lost her fiancee and gave birth at 20/21. This book gave her reasons for the things she did and it mostly made sense. But there were things I just didn't understand.
One was Maddie doesn't want to tell Jen and Stef the truth of what happened 10 years before. Not because Jen couldn't take it but because Stef couldn't. Why would the BFF be more upset than the sister who lost her entire family. I just didn't understand why Stef's reaction was what they worried about.
Beyond that I enjoyed the story and found I really enjoyed Jared and Maddie together. You should be aware that the hero, Jared is 5 years younger than the heroine, though he is pretty mature.
This is Madlyn and Jared's book and it moves very fast. You find yourself having to redefine a character you thought you knew all about and find out, not everything is as it seems. I love that the books are written at the same time span but the author does a great job of overlapping them without giving you the ending in any of the previous books. Love Ms. Callahan's writing, she has a new follower from me.
