The story picks up where Book 1, No Prince Charming, left off.
Once again we are taken on a roller coaster ride with Killian and Claire.
A fire at Keystone Estate will change the lives of many people.
An announcement, on his death bed, by JosIah Stone will bring even more changes.
Killian's brother Trey will also bring v about change.
Each incident leads to the book being a whole lot grittier than the first.
Once again there are a lot of hot steamy scenes between Killian and Claire - but these only add to the magic of the story.
Angel Payne and Victoria Blue have again excelled with this story.
I look forward to reading the next book in this series.
Thanks to Totally Bound, I got an early read of this revised re-release!
First of all, I absolutely love Claire Montgomery. She impressed me in the last book. She blew my ever-loving mind in this one. I must say that she is the woman I wish I could be. She is persistent, genuine, and steadfast in her love. With her status as the girlfriend of the Enigma of Magnificent Mile, she found herself in the public eye a lot more than she wanted, yet she handled it with poise, grace, and showed her beautiful heart. Amazing.
Killian, I loved how much he needed Claire. As practical he was, his nickname for her brought such beautifully whimsical aspect to his personality. He is definitely an alpha male. I am a sucker for alpha males. However, I will admit that there were parts in this book that I wanted to knock him out, teach him some things, then knock him again.
Without giving too much away, I will say that there is one part towards the middle that made my chest ache. I swear that I damn near shouted, “Oh hell no. No, he didn’t! Killian, I want to smack you so hard right now.” After one specific scene that was selfish and cruel, I wanted to knock some sense into Killian. This scene and the one right after it depressed me so badly that once the song “Blue Christmas” played on from my playlist, I started crying! I was doing so well in keeping the tears in check and this happened.
As noted in my review for the previous book, there is one person that I absolutely hated. It just figures that Angel and Victoria would turn her into someone that I could like. Note that I said, “could like”. They did show a much softer and selfless side in here. I have hopes that I will like her, but considering the writers, I know that I will.
Angel and Victoria, thank you for another amazing book! Thank you for taking my heart, twisting it up, wringing it out and filling it with love again. I can’t wait for the next book!
Reading this I felt alot of what Claire felt while I was reading NMM. I loved him at his sexiest, wanted to scream at him when wouldn't talk and mourned his loss when he ran. There were moments in this book that I found myself simply walking away from my Kindle. I was either in tears, angry or swooning. This book was really about Killian having it all, having it all taken away and then him finding himself - the real Killian Stone - all over again.
And yes, the revelations in this story and how those revelations change even the secondary characters made my jaw drop!
Angel and Victoria have written an amazing story - again! These two amazing ladies who are so talented and such a great team together gave us such a moving and fulfulling story full of twists and turns, sighs and swoons and one of the best HEA for now that i have ever read! I find myself reading the last chapter over and over. Hungover still. Anxiously waiting for part three.
Ladies, you two ROCKED this!
