I've been waiting for this book for what seems like FOREVER! I needed to know who Rafe really was and what was going to happen to Brie after the end of Instigation.
Escalation does not disappoint! We finally get to know who Rafe really is, and to see more of the mystery that surrounds Brie. Finding out who Rafe Mathews was was an awesome thing. I had ideas, but when it was all laid out there, I was like well hmm.... wasn't expecting all of that. I am definitely wanting to know who "The Boss" is and I have some suspicions, but am not sure if I'm right, as I have been wrong about a lot in this series already.
When Brie found out all about Rafe she was ANGRY and hurt, but the draw to him is too strong that she understands what he did and why he did it, even if she doesn't fully agree with everything he's done. It took some time for her to get why he did what he did, and she was definitely hot and cold with him during this time, which I enjoyed.
Brie and Rafe have a long road ahead of them, and unlike most second books in a trilogy, Escalation has a thick plot and gives us some answers. This is not a filler book, but one that you have to read. The things we find out from Brie and Rafe's past are amazing, and even more confusing. For every one answer we get, I feel like I have two more waiting to be answered. I adore Rafe and Brie and truly hope they do get their HEA, but there is so much that needs to be answered before they can even think about this.
Seeing Brie wanting to help Rafe and them being equals in their relationship now that most of the secrets are out was awesome. You can't deny how much Rafe feels about Brie, and Brie is definitely in love with him as well. They are HOT together, but it's not just the bedroom chemistry that makes these two work. They make each other laugh, they care, and are there for one another, and I adored this about their story.
Needless to say you have to read Instigation to read Escalation, this is not a stand alone. This trilogy is AMAZING and I absolutely cannot wait till the third and final book is here so I can get all the answers that are swirling around in my head.
