Picking up where the previous book ended, Jocelyn and Ellis are settling further into their bond while continuing their respective work with the ministry. Ellis is keeping things from Jocelyn regarding the fae they encountered previously, however, and things are becoming a bit strained between them as a result. Ellis just wants to keep Jocelyn from being hurt again and its hard to explain to him what’s going on when his memory surrounding the event keeps disappearing. Jocelyn, in the meantime, is filled with doubts about whether or not Ellis has found someone else he’d rather partner with, both in and outside of the office. When Ellis realizes he’s in over his head and calls for help, Jocelyn doesn’t hesitate to go after him but will running into the fae again help or make things worse?
Much like the previous book, this was a slower paced story that focused more on character and relationship development than on romance or ‘steamier’ encounters between the main characters. Ellis and Jocelyn also spend more time apart in this story, working on their own things, than they do together but as this gave Ellis more room to shine after he spent so much time trying to put himself together previously, and I was totally okay with that. The story itself, however, while nice, wasn’t quite as interesting to me as the first book was. While Jocelyn’s insecurities served as a good reminder that he can be just as human and prone to worry as the next person, I also didn’t really enjoy that aspect of the story though I understand why it was there. I also really disliked the guy he was partnered with for a while; he was an irritating fop that kind of needed a good smack upside the head in my opinion.
Aside from the minor issues I had, however, this was a fairly enjoyable story with a really good ending. The only thing that would’ve made the ending better would’ve been actually seeing what had just been set up but if there’s a third book in the series, I’m hopeful it will be showcased there. If you enjoy slower paced, more character driven stories this might be something you want to take a look at.
I really enjoyed the first book „Forgotten things“ and was looking forward to the ongoing development in the relationship of Ellis and Jocelyn.
The second book had a little more action than the first, but altogether it was told in a slow pace, too. We once again learn a lot of whats going on in the minds of Jocelyn and Ellis which is a great help to connect with the two.
In contrast to other books in the Romance genre, there is very low heat. The Focus is once again on the feelings and the developments of the two main characters and their relationship. Physical encounters are very few and only short mentioned.
So, if you are looking for a classic „romance“ perhaps you won’t be happy. But if you are looking for a sweet and slow story with very likeable characters and a nice plot set in an interesting world, you should give this one a try!
