*Received an alpha copy form the author!!!!*
A-freaking-MAZING. Once again, the author left me a sobbing mess, but for different reasons in this book. I'm not going to go too deep about the characters themselves right now because the first book isn't out yet, and I don't want to spoil anything from that book. But, once the first book comes out, I'll be back to add more to this and further explain why I adore Catherine and Cross. Needless to say though, I fell even more in love with them in this book. I also absolutely loved seeing little pieces of the other family members' lives in the story.
So, I'll just talk about my feels in this book. SO MANY FEELZZZZZZZZ. I was happy, angry, on the edge of my seat anxious, and just overall drowning in this book, and I did not want to come up for air. I put it down only to eat, sleep, and do stuff for those kids who kept calling me mommy. This book was everything I needed and wanted. The romance, the action, the secrets revealed, I loved all of it. I can't wait for everyone else to read this book.
Ok, so I've waited as long as I can to talk more about this book. Cross. Omg, I fell in love with him all over again in this book. He was still wild and didn't give a shit, but he was smarter and knew when to fight his battles, and with whom to fight them. He still loved Catherine with a fierceness and it was a force to be reckoned with. She was everything to him and he would burn down the world to protect her.
Catherine's growth from book 1 had me loving her even more. She was strong and would not let anyone think for a second that they could mess with her. She told a lot of secrets in this book and set a lot of things straight and I was so proud of her for how she handled so many situations. She still loved her some Cross and their reunion was everything I wanted it to be and more.
Dante, Cal, Emma, and Catrina were the parents who just wanted to see their kids be everything they could be, but all realizing they had to let them go and let them fall where they may..
The ending, I was a mess. It was everything and I cannot wait for book 3.
