Review: Helena Hunting's "Pucked Off (Pucked #6)."


I’m NHL defenseman Lance Romero, AKA Lance “Romance."

I’m notorious for parties and excess. I have the most penalty minutes in the league. I get into the most fights. I take the most hits. I’m a player on and off the ice. I’m the one women with no inhibitions want.

Not because I like the notoriety, but because I don’t know how to be any other way.

I have secrets. Ones I shared with the wrong person, and she used them against me. Sometimes she still does. I should cut ties. But she makes it difficult, because she’s the kind of bad I deserve.

At least that’s what I believed until someone from my past gets caught up in my present. She’s all the good things in this world. She lights up my dark.

I shouldn’t want her.

But I do. 

I should leave her alone.

But I won’t.

Review: Jo

I must have been on holiday when "Pucked Off" came out, because if I was around, I would have read it. So when it was on sale recently, I snapped it up. I wasn't going to miss out again. I've loved this series so much and so I was eager to read Lance's story and I gotta say that this book took me completely by surprise, but in a totally good way. It turned out to be one of my favourites of this series. If you haven't read this one yet, don't leave it any longer. Lance and Poppy's standalone second chance romance was a beautiful one. 

"I could kiss her forever. I could live in this memory—past fused with the present. 
This kiss would be my heaven."

As I had already met Lance in the previous books of the series, I had pretty much second-guessed how this book would go. I really thought I knew Lance, but this story changed my view of him and opened my eyes to what a gorgeous man he truly was. Lance made it so easy for me to fall in love with him and having made this discovery about his true personality and his back story, I wanted nothing but good things for him. As usual with me, I avoided reading the synopsis so I really thought that this novel would be all about Lance and Tash, but when I realised what was going on with the couple, I began to want different things. I could not understand how Lance and Tash could work out, so when Poppy entered the story, I breathed a sigh of relief. 

“You’re all the good things I didn’t know I was missing.” 

What followed was a story that I loved every minute of reading. Poppy and Lance were so good together. Lance was deliciously sweet and made me swoon a hell of a lot and Poppy was the perfect girl that Lance wholeheartedly deserved. It made my heart so happy to see this pair fall for one another. This is a romance that I'm so glad that I read. It was another brilliant addition to what has been a fabulous series. 

“I’m messed up, Poppy. I think there are parts of me that can’t be fixed.” 
“I don’t need to fix you, Lance. I’ll take you as you are. I just want you to be happy.”

I also loved catching up with all of the "Pucked" gang. I adore every one of the characters in this series. If you haven't read this series yet, I highly recommend one-clicking. It contains all of the ingredients for the best sports romance series. It is by far my favourite in the genre. 

"I want you forever,”
“I’m yours, I’ve been yours since you stole my first kiss.”

"Pucked Off" gets 4.5 ❤️'s from me.

Blog Tour: C.D. Reiss's "White Knight."

The Hopeless Romantics Book Blog are pleased to be part of the Blog Tour for C.D. Reiss's "White Knight."


Catherine Barrington is a rich girl. Chris Cartwright is a poor boy.
He left her to make something of himself. A man she could be proud of. A man she could bring home to her parents. A man she could marry.
On the trading floor he became the man he knew he could be. Now, it’s time to return.
Rich girl.
Poor boy.
She didn’t care about his money, but he didn’t believe her. Soon after he left, all the money was gone.
Her life is hell.
Now he’s back, and he’s different. Pristine. Gorgeous. Rich.
Rich boy.
Poor girl.
Money was never the barrier, until now.

Review: Jo

"It's too late to ride in and rescue me. I don't need a knight in shining armour anymore."
"Maybe I'm the one who needs to be rescued." 

I always look forward to starting a new novel from CD Reiss, and because I'd already met the characters in this story, I was even more excited to begin. Ever since first meeting Catherine in "King of Code", I had been intrigued by her story and wanted to know more about this quiet, caring woman and the man that had stolen her heart. 

"I wanted to draw around us with permanent marker 
and show her the beauty of everything inside the line." 

Right from the get-go "White Knight" pulled me in and I very quickly became hooked, reading most of the story in one sitting. I easily fell in love with Catherine and Christopher's standalone story of first teenage love, so tender and new and then I fell in love all over again when they were given a second chance. It was such a sweet tale that made my heart flip repeatedly. 

"We were always in the stars, and for the past thirteen years,
 we were just waiting for the planets to catch up."

Although this novel was shorter than expected (finishing at fifty percent), it ticked all of the boxes for me. Beautiful writing, a swoonworthy hero and a gorgeous romance. I finished the epilogue with a full heart and a big smile on my face. 

"I'd replaced her tears with laughter. I'd done much without her, and I'd done much for her. 
But I hadn't achieved anything until I turned her sadness into joy." 

"White Knight" gets 4.5 ❤️'s from me.


I crossed the train tracks, looking both ways as if the freight ran on a thoroughfare. It was a few steps to the rows of mobile homes that defined that side of Barrington. 

The playground was in a little clearing just west of the center of the trailers. My fingertips were cold, but the rest of my body thrummed and pulsed so hard that I made my own heat. I told myself I didn’t know what to expect from this meeting, but if I didn’t know what to expect, I knew what to hope, and they were pretty much the same thing. 

“Catherine!” Chris wasn’t loud, but the excitement in his voice made him sound as if he were shouting. 

“Chris?” I spun around, looking for him in the darkness.

And on a three-quarter turn, he crashed into me, all lips and hands, digging his fingertips into the muscles of my back as he pulled me close. I tasted the minty toothpaste in his mouth and thought he brushed his teeth for me. He kissed me as if he would never kiss me again. He kissed me as if this was the last kiss he would ever have in his life. As if he wanted to eat me alive. I’d given over my freedom and my choice to this thing with him, to this moment, to this stupid set of choices that would ruin me forever. As surely as the sun would rise, I was the designer of my own destruction. 

I wanted to be destroyed by that kiss. 

When Chris took my hand, I imagined I could feel the blood pulsing through the veins, the cells in his skin. I imagined that when my nerve endings vibrated at his touch, they connected to his somehow. 

Everything felt new. I was discovering that my body had routes between one place and another that I never knew existed. I never knew that when a man touched my hand or kissed my nipples, I could feel it between my legs. 

There was a click behind the tree line, and he stopped kissing me with a jerk. We froze long enough for him to smile.

Review: Tiffany Reisz's "Original Sinners: The Red Years."


The Siren

Notorious erotica author Nora Sutherlin thought she knew everything about being pushed to your limits. But in the world of BDSM, where passion is pain, nothing is ever that simple.

The Angel

Dominatrix Nora Sutherlin is doing something utterly out of character: hiding. It’s a summer that will prove the old adage: love hurts. And no safe word can protect the heart.

The Prince

Two worlds of wealth and passion call to Nora Sutherlin and, whichever one she chooses, it will be the hardest decision she will ever have to make. Unless someone makes it for her…

The Mistress

There’s punishment—and then there’s vengeance… Nora Sutherlin is in handcuffs, held captive by two men. Under different circumstances, she would enjoy the situation immensely, but her captors aren’t interested in play. Or pity.

Review: Surj 

Right, are you ready for the ramblings of a mad woman because that's probably what this review is going to sound like but here goes!!! 

Holy hell fire guys!!!!! This series!!!!! OMG!!!! I have just inhaled the first four books in Tiffany Riesz's "Original Sinners" series and I have been blown away!!!! These books came out some time ago but even now, years later, I have to say, I don't think I have ever read anything quite like this... and I mean EVER!!! I doubt anyone would have the balls to do it to be honest but this author did and for that I will be eternally grateful. 

“Hurt is a bruise on the outside.” “Harm is a bruise on the inside.”

Every line, every paragraph, every page kept me on my toes and never, not for one second did I get bored or decide to skim. Never, not for one minute did I think I'd heard this story before and never, not once did I consider putting this series down because of the lines that were crossed. Oh yes, Tiffany Reisz didn't just blur those lines, she didn't just teeter on the edge. Nope she took the biggest leap of faith and crossed those lines between right and wrong and took us all along for the joy ride!!!! I'm sure I'm going to hell for the thoughts that crossed my mind whilst reading the Original Sinners but I'm sure I won't be alone down there. I know that virtually every person that has read this series will be down there too along with Soren, Kingsley, Nora and the rest of the gang and my, what a party it will be. 

Broken love is the most dangerous love. 
It will slice you open with every touch. 

Tiffany Reisz's writing is unique. In this series, she wrote third person so eloquently and with such fluidity that I felt like I was reading first person. She wrote past and present so exquisitely, the scenes flowed seamlessly with the story she was telling. I don't know how this author did it, but there were so many stories told, so many plots and sub plots to explore but instead of feeling overwhelmed with so much information, I relished and savoured everything that was handed to me. I craved more from the stories. I needed more!

Søren couldn’t live in a world without Nora. Kingsley couldn’t live in 
a world without Søren. Her death would be like the sinking of a great ship. 
She would take them all down with her.

To say Tiffany Reisz gave us characters who were unconventional would be the understatement of the century. They were different alright but they were who they were and made no apologies for it.  I loved Nora, Kinglsey and Soren so utterly and completely. These were individuals who were tragically flawed. Each of them had their crosses to bear. One thing was clear though, these characters had an inherent need for love, whether that was for a love that was lost, forbidden, unhealthy or for a love that had been sacrificed. 

“I know. I know... I can’t save someone who doesn’t want to be saved.”

“No. You can’t save someone who doesn’t need to be saved.”

Tiffany Reisz ensured that her characters told their stories with such vigour and candour and even if you might not agree with them or the decisions they made or the lifestyle they lead, you had to take your hat off to them for doing things their way!!!! I relished in the bold and brash stories they told, savouring the emotions they elicited from me. These characters challenged me in so many ways. My heart and mind were on a constant battlefield. Right from the get go though, Nora, Kingsley, Soren and the rest of the crazy gang easily wormed their way into my affections and I can hand on heart  say they are up there with my all time favourite characters from the book world EVER!!!! 

“You told me once you loved it down south.” 
“I was talking about anal sex.” 
“Of course you were.”

"The Original Sinners: The Red Years" series was not your run of the mill love story that's for sure but this was a story about love, loss and sacrifice. Some parts made for difficult reading and I did find myself wincing, my stomach churning because of what I had read. But the more I read, the more I wondered whether whether this was because of my lack of understanding or accepting of a lifestyle? Maybe I needed to get to know these characters more before I cast judgement. An open mind is definitely needed peeps!

"You're standing on the edge of a rabbit hole. Are you sure you want to fall down it?"
"I'll trade you my hole for your hole."

"The siren" was a unique story that pulled me in right from the start. What unfolded was so unexpected which is what I loved. It was dark, disturbing, unpredictable, unconventional, sinful and so freakin' scandalous!!! And at times it was damn right hilarious too!!! 

Hands down easy peasy lemon squeezy, THE UNHOLY TRINITY get ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ . But that ending in "The Mistress!!!!!" Tiffany Reisz killed me!!!! Absolutely drove a dagger through my heart. I think my heart actually stopped beating for a time. I was not expecting that at all. it was soooo different but then I had to give myself a virtual slap and remind myself, nothing about any of this series was normal or run of the mill and this was not my story!!!! It was theirs so I just had to deal with it. Lol.  ENJOY

Blog Tour: L.M Halloran's "Double Vision."

The Hopeless Romantics Book Blog are pleased to be part of the Blog Tour for L.M Halloran's "Double Vision."


Everything has a price, and the price of truth is steepest of all. 

Eden has an ironclad five-year plan. In three months, she’s saying good riddance to Los Angeles and returning to the Pacific Northwest for medical school. Nothing is going to get in her way.

Nothing… but the impossible.

When she glimpses her doppelgänger at a party, the seemingly accidental meeting turns her life in a direction she never imagined, shredding everything she knows about herself and where she comes from. 

The one constant in her collapsing world is Liam Rourke, a man whose dark desires are matched only by his tenderness. But Liam is more than a master in the bedroom—he’s a master of lies.

Uncovering the truth might cost Eden her life. 

Her family. 

Her love.

Some things are worth dying for.

Review: Jo 

It had been a while since I had last read a dark romance so when I heard that L.M Halloran's new release was going to be in this genre I was intrigued and excited to return to one of my favourite kinds of romance. With this book L.M has delivered a gripping tale of love, secrets, lies and it contained a nail-biting conclusion that made me fear the worst. "Double Vision" is a book that you are going to want to clear your schedule for because you won't want to stop reading. I made the mistake of reading this during a very busy weekend and it frustrated the hell out of me that I couldn't devour the entire book in one go. 

"He is the sun, blotting out the shadows in my soul."

This was my third read from this author and I was not disappointed. Each book that I've read so far by L.M have been completely different proving what a versatile author she is, easily able to change things up with each new novel. Her books are always beautifully written too. With poetic words that I adore reading over and over again. This author just gets better and better with each new book. She has quickly become one of my favourites. 

"Until you tell me to stop, I'll follow you. To hell and back if necessary. 
I serve at your whim, Eden Sumner." 

The story of Eden and Liam was exciting, mysterious, sexy and at times made my stomach churn. I loved Eden, she was a strong, courageous woman who also had a submissive side to her that was only for Liam. Liam made me fall head over heels in love with him. I loved everything about him, even his dark side. Eden and Liam made the perfect couple, with a gorgeous love story developing between the pair. There was just a whole lot of drama that Eden and Liam had to contend with, so many moments when my heart stopped as I couldn't see how a future was possible for Eden and Liam. It truly was an edge-of-your-seat kind of read. 

"I'm broken, Liam."
"No, little siren. You're breaking free." 

If you love dark romance this is an absolute must read. 

"Beneath my diamond shell, I'm shattered. A million flecks of blackest dust." 

"Double Vision" gets ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ from me.

Review: Samantha Towle's "Ruin."


And the new heavyweight champion of the world is... 

Those are the words that Zeus Kincaid has been waiting to hear since he first put on a pair of boxing gloves. He just didn’t think they would come with a tragedy that would change how he viewed the sport forever. 

Cameron Reed was in her second year at Juilliard when her childhood sweetheart, Zeus Kincaid, walked away from her. A few months later, Cam realized that she would never fulfill her dream of dancing for the New York City Ballet. 

Now working as a dancer in an upscale club in Manhattan, Cam is brought face-to-face with the man she once loved. And it’s her turn to walk away from him. 

After five years of missing Cam, Zeus isn’t prepared to let her go again. But when he finds himself standing on her doorstep the next morning, things don’t go quite as he expected… 

Review: Jo 

I'd been excited about reading "Ruin" ever since I first heard about it. I've always had a soft spot for a sports romance so I had high hopes for this one, especially as it was about a boxer. Love stories that involve a hot fighter have always been a favourite of mine and I'm so happy to say that this novel met all of my expectations. This book contained everything that I had hoped it would.

"...I want him. I'm not fighting it anymore tonight. Tomorrow, 
I'll go back to fighting. But, tonight, I'm putting down my gloves." 

Zeus and Cameron's romance was a story of second chance love. It was filled with angst, passion and a whole lot of push and pull with enough heat to keep me warm on a bitterly cold day. Zeus was the perfect hero. I loved everything about him, he was strong, sexy and just so in love with his childhood sweetheart, Cameron. As soon as I met the pair, I was itching to know their back story. I knew that their tale of first love was going to be a good one and I wasn't disappointed. 

"I know you love me, Cam. I know I'm not alone in this. 
We're the real fucking deal. Our love is what most people
 spend a lifetime searching for and never find. Don't throw us away, please."

With great writing, easy to love characters and a gorgeous love story, this was my favourite read from Samantha Towle in a while. If you love a good sports romance this one is well worth one-clicking. 

"This man....he ruins me. Every word. Every look. Every touch. 
But there's no one I'd rather be ruined by than him."

"Ruin" gets ❤️❤️❤️❤️ from me.

Review: Surj 

If you're looking for a fast paced second chance romance, then look no further because Samantha Towle's "Ruin" is one that you'll be able to devour in one sitting. Zeus and Cameron's story was one that I was able to easily get lost in and despite the plot not being particularly original, this author did  put her own spin on things, giving us angst and humour in abundance plus characters that I easily fell in love. The twist pretty early in the book really did help to set the tone for what was to come and I thoroughly enjoyed watching the aftermath of that unravel. 

This man is my weakness. My downfall. My ruin. He always has been. 
And it seems he always will be. 

Zeus Kincaid was a god both in and out of the boxing ring. Seriously ladies, he was so easy to fall for. I loved his persistence. He was a man who knew he had done wrong and would do everything in his power to right that. Honestly, his perseverance was swoon worthy stuff. Now Cameron was a woman who had not had it easy that's for sure and Zeus was the reason for that. There was so much anger there and she was just not ready to forgive quite so easily. Be prepared for a lot of push and pull between this couple. Their journey back to one another is definitely not an easy one and at times, I really wanted to shake Cam and tell her to give my Zeus a break!!!! Lol. 

"I know you love me, Cam. I know I'm not alone in this. 
We're the real fucking deal. Our love is what most people
spend a lifetime searching for and never find. Don't throw us away, please."

"Ruin" was a story about shattered hopes and broken dreams. It was a story about sacrifice and second chances. Like I said, a quick, easy second chance sports romance that you'll easily devour in an afternoon. So go grab that glass of wine, kick those shoes off and relax into "Ruin."

This one gets ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Release Blitz & Review: JA Huss & Johnathan McClain's "Sin with Me (Original Sin # 1)."

The Hopeless Romantics Book Blog are pleased to be a part of the Release Blitz & Review of JA Huss & Johnathan McClain's "Sin with Me (Original Sin # 1)."
Amazon UK:


Two broken people in a city fueled by sin.

Maddie isn’t looking to be saved. She knows the only person you can count on is yourself. Her moral compass might not point true North these days—but at least she’s still standing.

The Military taught Tyler about loyalty. Being there for your brothers is the only thing that matters—but when it mattered most, he wasn’t.

She’s got a ticket straight to Hell. He’s already been there and back. 

She needs to win. He just needs to stop fighting.

Some sins scar your soul so deeply, you'll never be the same.
But this Devil in disguise might just be the angel he needs to forgive himself.

Review: Surj 

Wow, will this author ever run out of brilliant ideas for her stories? It appears not because  she's only gone and done it again and this time as a collaboration with a Hollywood star!!! You heard right. Yes I will put my hands up though and say, initially I was a little sceptical about whether this partnership would work but fear not because Julie and Johnathan absolutely rocked "Sin with me," the first book in the "Original Sin" series and I cannot wait to see what they have in store next for Maddie and Tyler. 

We're just a bunch of fuck ups who have to deal with what we've done. 

For me, "Sin with Me" was a slow burner of a read but in a good way. It really allowed me to get to know each of the main characters as individuals before the main plot took full effect and before a connection between the couple was made. I savoured every second of getting to know these complex, broken individuals and it really helped me get a better understanding of each of them and why they were the way they were. At times this made for difficult reading because these two had been through so much. Initially Tyler left me baffled. His inner monologue appeared erratic at times, jumping from topic to topic and back again, his brain never appearing to switch off. This was a man who had  financial means to buy anything and everything his heart desired but it was like the life had been sucked right out of him. There was no drive. No ambition. Just this downward spiral that he had no intention of pulling himself out of. It was tragic to read. What I will say is, bare with him because he is not a conventional book boyfriend and probably not easy to take to at the start but actually the more I got to know him, the more I liked him. He was actually quite the funny guy and had me in stitches so many times. His wit and one liners were class and what should have been an angsty story often had me grinning like a cheshire cat.

We are combustion. We are the raging inferno of purifying flame that will singe 
away all our pain and leave us barren and ready to begin again. 
In the punishing passion that we share, we can torture away whatever nightmares 
plague us and both wake born anew. We are each others suicide.  

In stark contrast to Tyler, Maddie was desperate to do "something." She was the kind of person that  would have hair brain ideas on how to get rich quick or how to forge a career for herself but her ideas always ended up going flat. I truly felt for her because you could see that the life she had was not the life she had hoped for but there just didn't seem like a way out for her. 

Tyler and Maddie were a couple I was rooting for.  Both were lost and lonely. Both had their secrets and both had a past that seemed to have affected the people they had become in the present. I felt their hurt and pain, the angst flying off the pages by the bucket load. Yet there was also a humour amongst the pages that seemed to fit so seamlessly. Dark with light, laughter with sorrow... it shouldn't have worked but it did and did so well. 

She is Eve but I am not Adam. I am the serpent wrenching her out of Eden.
And together we are original sin. 

"Sin with Me" was quirky and funny and heart breaking and melancholic. And boy did Julie and Johnathan bring their A game when it came to the sexy and sinful. This was a fab introduction to what looks to be a fabulous series and as I said earlier in my review, I can't wait to see what happens next for this couple. Was there a cliffy? Yes there was. Was there a moment where everything came together in a WTF moment? Hell yes, this is JA Huss after all. Not long to wait for "Angels Fall" thank god!!!!   I rated "Sin with Me" ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Excerpt: Maddie

He better just be getting started. Because I want more. 

His hand slips around the curve of my ass, squeezing it so hard, I bite my lip to stifle a whimper. His fingers press into my skin, grabbing hold of me like he might never let go.

His tongue laps against my pussy, then flicks my clit. I fist his hair and let my head fall back—pressing against the brick wall. He does this little move with his tongue. Teasing me as he swirls it around, presses his mouth firmly against my clit, and moves it back and forth so quick, I drop a hand down to his shoulder and dig my nails in. Like I might never let go either. 

It’s been a while for me. Too long, really. And I can feel the climax building and building, and then—

“Not yet, angel,” he murmurs.

“Yes,” I say, insistent. “Now. We’re in the alley and there’s people—”

“There’s no people,” he counters. “And I want to be inside you when you come. I want you to be fucked as much as possible before I let you finish.”

“Hey,” I say. I really need this guy’s real name. I can’t keep calling him that. Especially during sex. “We gotta hurry. I’m at work and—”

“You’re not at work. You’re with me, Scarlett.”

And I really need to tell him my name too. Because I feel like I’m morphing into Scarlett. This is the kind of thing she does, not me. 

Isn’t it?

He lifts my legs, still pushing me against the wall, repositions them so they drape over the crook in his arms. He’s holding both ass cheeks, squeezing them hard and pressing against me with his hard cock. But we’re eye level and I’m looking at him like… like we’re something. Like maybe I am with him. 

He grins. A devilish, mischievous grin. Says, “How do you like it?”

“Like it?” I say, my eyes darting around to make sure no one can see us.

“Scarlett,” he says, demanding my attention. “Look at me. And tell me how you like to be fucked.”

“Uhhh… good.”

He laughs. “Roger that. Anything else?”

“Just…” I start. Because I’m not really into the dirty-talking shit. I’m not into alley sex, or wall sex, or giving blow jobs for money. But I’ve done all those things since I met him. Last. Fucking. Weekend.

So fuck it. I’m Scarlett now, I guess.

“Hard,” I say. “I like it hard.” 

He smiles.

“And dirty.”

“Filthy?” he asks. “Or just dirty?”

I take a moment to wonder how much difference there is between filthy and dirty. 

“Scarlett,” he says, pushing his stiff cock up to the entrance of my pussy. God, I’m wet. And the way he’s teasing me has my whole body trembling. “Tell me how to fuck you. Because if you don’t, you’re just gonna have to get it the way I like to give it.”

Jesus Christ.

Review: Katee Robert's "Make Me Want."


“I want everything.”

She’s taking control. And it’s driving him wild!

Lucy Baudin’s ex did a number on her self-esteem, but it’s time for her to regain control. In her job as a lawyer she’s bold, confident. But in the bedroom she needs inspiration to reawaken her inner seductress. Asking her friend Gideon Novak for help seems wrong…yet so deliciously right! 

Review: Jo 

As soon as I started reading this one, I immediately became intrigued by the characters and then I realised the premise of the story and I was excited for what lay ahead. This friends-to-lovers story was a sexy slow burn with the most perfect ending. If you are looking for a red hot quick read this could be for you. 

"I want you. You want me. We fit, Lucy. You can't deny it's true."

When I first met Gideon, I had all kinds of sexy expectations and for the most part they came true, however there was a few things about this passionate man that frustrated the hell out of me. It was pretty clear from the first page that he had feelings for Lucy, but he took so long in expressing those feelings. I wanted him to be more dominant, more alpha. To tell Lucy that he was the guy she was looking for, which he did get to in the end, it just took a hell of a long time to do it. He drove me crazy!! I was slowly losing my patience with each new chapter. As you can probably tell, slow burns usually aren't my thing. Lol. 

Although I was feeling slightly irritated with the Gideon, I did love the spicy sex scenes. Lucy and Gideon were on fire together. There was one particular scene in a dressing room that had me burning up! If you love a good amount of steam in your book, you will love Lucy and Gideon's sexcapades. 

Overall, I did enjoy this quick read and I just loved the way it ended. I was completely surprised by the final chapter and I did have a big smile on my face as I turned the final page. It was just the slow burn that drove me mad.
