My rating: 5 of 5 stars
In the first book I got teary at what happened to one of the secondary characters. This book continues on that story as Jordan has to come to terms with his loss.
I loved as well how Felice brought Lucas in to the story and back into Ash’s life without it feeling like just a plot device, it worked well within the narrative.
This one is angsty, but it’s a different kind to the first book. Here there’s more to do with grief and loss, anger and pain, a sense of hopelessness than the relationship driven dramas of Drew and Ash.
Jordan and Lucas’ dramas came more from what was happening around them as they tried to move on, although there were relationship hiccups too.
I liked that they were quick to anger but also quick to reconcile, they talked and they sought expert help when the sh*t hit the fan.
In bed they were dynamite, I loved how Jordan slowly realised he could love Lucas without the guilt and how Lucas realised he could depend on Jordan in spite of his mistakes.
