First off, I decided that the h’s actions put her firmly in the TSTL category. Lost memory or not, you get kidnapped by a group of bikers who are planning on selling you into sexual slavery, the first chance you get you run. She chose to stay on the off chance that the H, who was acting like a total jerk, could unlock her memory. At that point, I lost all respect for her.
The H was even worse. He is supposed to be this genius yet he can’t see what’s right in front of him. The love of his life was supposedly killed in a fire and he has spent 8 years plotting revenge, yet when a dead ringer for his lost love shows up complete with burn scars and amnesia, he refuses to believe it’s her. Plus the fact he’s involved in trafficking sex slaves. Just no. I don’t care what his reasons are, that is just wrong.
There was lots of little points to the plot that made no sense to me. How could someone as smart as Wallstreet let a club whore know enough to put him in jail for years? Why did Sarah/Cleo not tell everything she remembered as the little snippets of memory happened? Why hold back knowing who captured her? I spent the entire book that was supposed to read like a chess game of geniuses thinking “for smart people, they sure are stupid”. I also figured out the mystery of why Kill thought Sarah/Cleo would eventually hate him pretty early on making all the angst going on even more eye roll inducing.Read more ›
Normally I'm a big Pepper Winters fan, but this book wasn't as good as her others.
For me the pacing was really really really slow. There was a lot of mystery and suspense, but they became so dragged out that I found myself skimming parts and even skipping whole pages and not missing anything vital.
The chemistry between the main characters was electric and sexy. There were flashbacks quite a bit in the story but I didn't find them confusing the way they were written in.
This book also wasn't all that dark to me. There were parts in the beginning and the plot certainly has a lot of twists that weren't expected, but I didn't find the dark aspect to be much different than most MC books.
There is a massive cliffy that I didn't expect, but I don't know if I'll pick up the second book in the series with how slow this book went even though I want to know what happens.
I will say that I love the way Pepper writes and brings everything to life while making you feel for the characters and invested in finding out what happens to them and their stories.
I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.
