Oh my god, I was so excited to see Maris Black continued her "Kage" saga with a new trilogy. It seemed to come out of nowhere! The cover is a stark contrast to the previous trilogy--Kage isn't a tough fighter who sticks to what he knows and does what his uncle says anymore. Now, he's free from Peter Santori's grasp--but he's suddenly thrust into the spotlight as the new owner of all of Santori's assets, including the hotel. He's also made the decision to publicly come out. And he's also worried about protecting Jamie, who is still vulnerable after the previous series' events.
The man's got a big storm coming. But it's nice reading about him growing a bit as a character. Maris Black's more "dom" characters are sometimes way too aggressive to their partners, but Kage seems to be toned down a little in this. He's had to mature in so many ways. There were a lot of great moments between him and Jamie (dramatic, sweet, sexy, take your pick) and it was nice reading about them again. There was also a great frank discussion about Jamie's sexuality and how they sort of changed as romantic partners when they got together, which was unexpected.
As usual, there were issues. Like with Jamie's family. Let's say that if I were Jamie's dad, I would've killed Kage and buried him six feet under a long time ago. Kage is way too sexually aggressive and familiar with Jamie in front of Jamie's parents and it feels super sketchy. And the whole "club outfit" debacle was the worst kind of cringe and not funny to me at all.
The real reason I didn't rate this book higher was the last half, because it lives up to the title--it isn't about Kage and Jamie at all, it's about Peter Santori, and it is told through horrifically implausible journal entries that read no differently than the rest of the book. That alone drove me nuts, but the fact that Jamie and Kage's stories, which I was pretty invested in again, were completely abandoned for an entirely separate narrative was such a weird, sloppy writing choice!
It's not even like Santori's story was bad. I was just left wondering when we'd get back to what Kage was up to. Which we never did.
I didn't like a lot of choices Maris Black made with this one, but that doesn't mean I'm not still awaiting the next book. I'm still invested in Jamie and Kage as a couple, and now she's got me curious about Santori as well. I just hope the next books make a little more structural sense.
I loved it all! I am now eagerly awaiting book 2 and may have to re-read this one a couple time to see if I missed any subtle hints as to what may come for my guys! 5 stars all the way!!
But then Kage discovers that owning the hotel is a lot of stress and that there's a lot of things going on in the dark. And when he receives a threatening note the nightmares and urge to keep Jamie safe comes roaring back.
I didn't expect getting to know more about Peters background and it made me care for the young Peter even if I still despise the one who let Kage hurt his brother.
And I really wanted to slap some sense in Kage and tell him and Jamie to communicate. I understand that Jamie is everything to him and he wants him safe but to be kept in the dark and having the one you love pull away is already hurting Jamie.
I hope February comes fast, I need book 2 now!
