A great second installment in the series. FMM romance lovers rejoice.
4.5/5 stars rounded up.
The second book, of three, in a series. I wouldn’t recommend reading these books out of order because they’re on a continuous timeline and this book refers to the book before which could spoil major things.
This novel does have frequent talk and scenes of male bisexuality and FMM romance so if you enjoy that or want to get a taste of it this book/series is for you! Spice: 🌶🌶🌶 (and believable too!)
I have a love dislike relationship with Knox. I loved many aspects about him but I disliked some of the decision he made and how he seemed to make his life harder, not better, at times. I understood the decisions but I was happy to see his character growth by the end. And let’s face it, the author wrote him well to give us the drama to keep us engaged and reading until the conclusion.
I liked a lot about Josie but I found her stubbornness to be both endearing (I do love a strong independent woman) and frustrating as she was being strong about certain things for all the wrong reasons. I was glad when she came to this realization herself. I loved that she found her passion in cooking and baking and got to share that with Knox and Gage.
Here, we see Gage a year after the events of book 1 and we can already see him having grown from that experience. Sometimes it’s hard not to fall back on bad habits though.
Despite not always enjoying the personality traits or the character’s decisions at the time I thoroughly enjoyed the story and cannot wait to read book 3. Please do read and enjoy this series if you enjoy FMM romance, darker romances, and characters who grow and learn from their mistakes.
