This book was so frustrating it had me pulling my hair out and internally groaning. BUT I couldn't put it down and I suppose that is what makes this book. The suspense was so intriguing that no matter how many times I wanted to rage quit it, I just couldn't put it down. The suspensful plot is what makes this series worthwhile. Usually I am quick to figure out how everything ties in but this truly had me on the edge of my seat trying to puzzle this out.
Everything else was not so great. The relationship between the two MCs was just so frustrating to read. I love angsty and drama filled reads, which this has in boatloads, but it just really grated on me in this book. My biggest issue with the series is Leeland. He is selfish, manipulative, self-centered and untrustworthy. He is completely unlikable and has zero redeeming qualities as a MC. I hated him with a fire hotter than the sun. Now I did like Graham but he just a little too okay with everything happening.
Overall the dramas were just too easily resolved for me. I just didn't get how their relationship worked given the dysfunction. Having both MCs POVs in this book this time was a good addition. It gave insight to leeland's motives and background but it wasn't enough to make him likeable. The sex scenes in this are frequent and pretty hot but they lacked connection. It seemed they were always used as a weapon or to fix problems and not really about anything true or real. Also the ending was so sudden and once again a bit too easy considering everything that happened.
If you like your MM romances packed with action, suspense, lies, betrayal, intrigue and a love story that is a messy dysfunctional side plot then give this a go. Fans of Shattered Glass by Dani Alexander or Mary Calmes Marshals series would enjoy this.
