I wanted resolution, I wanted to know about everyone's future, I wanted to get a better understanding of Blake's past, I wanted more of Madden and surprisingly Easton. But overall, I just wanted more of the Luminous duet.
I have learned that when Erin announces she's delivering a new book that she's truly going to deliver. That she's going to put her heart and soul into it and make it the best it can be, or she wouldn't dream of hitting publish. With Transparent, I feel she did that in spades. Yeah, it took a while for us to be able to have it in our hot little hands but now having read it I am so glad she waited. She created something beautiful and amazing.
Ok, so about the book. I won't give away anything. First, you need to read Translucent. If you haven't, Transparent will be confusing as hell and you won't get anything out of it. Now, if you've read it you know that Madden is a beautiful person. He is a master at reading, knowing, and understanding people at a deep level. He is a man in love. A man who is desperate for his sweet girl. Blake is such a wounded but strong person. She's lived through hell, risen from the ashes and discovered that she's more than just her past. She's incredible. Her strength and kindness are equally matched and we see it escalate in Transparent.
So much about this book I could say but I don't want to give anything away. I will say this, if you loved Translucent and have been anxiously awaiting Transparent - you won't be disappointed. Erin delivered what she promised. She had my heart racing, my eyes bugging out of my head then wet with tears and my skin alive with fever. I loved it. It was a roller coaster of a story but one I won't soon forget.

Wow. First of all I have to say this sequel didn't go at all how I thought it would. Definitely a plus. It made the story unpredictable. Another surprise was Raze. Where did he come from?! He stole the show in my opinion. I don't know how Blake would have gotten out of her predicament without him and his story tugged on my heart strings.
But, otherwise, I thought this follow-up was just okay. Blake and Madden had very little interaction. They were apart until the end. Which I didn't like at all. Transparent felt more like a second book than a final book. I'm a tad disappointed considering the long wait. *shrugs*
Right from the one word announcing the POV from which the prologue was written, I was thrown off. While 'those guys' had factored into my musings about what was coming, having a part of the book from his POV, even if it was just the prologue, really threw me, leading me to think ... to hope even ... that this book might be one of those very rare ones that really is something completely different ... and it was.
With Transparent, Erin Noelle takes everything that was established in Translucent and turns it on its ear. While still being true to the characters and situations created in its predecessor, this book introduces a completely new player into the mix and builds a story that is as much mystery suspense thriller as it is romance novel, while never abandoning its roots.
At its heart, the first book was a love story, and this one, even more so, is exactly that. A cleverly crafted, well written, beautiful testament to what love is really all about, and the lengths people will go to for it.
After I finished the last page, I found myself thinking, oddly enough, about a line from the original Star Wars movie, where old Ben says "These aren't the droids you're looking for", but in this case, this wasn't the book I was looking for. I was looking for a book where Blake/Bryleigh and Madden struggled against the odds and psychotic bereaved mafia baddies intent on revenge as they sought to find each other and begin their HEA, but I didn't find it. Instead, what I found was a book that had elements of all of that, but was so very, very much more.
Out of five stars ... I'd give this one six if I could.
