I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.
Since the dramatic and tear inducing conclusion of Sojourn, I've spent lots time imaging what would happen in Phoenix and where the story would go. I'm pleased to say the author takes the story in a direction I didn't consider. I love that.
Caroline, the woman we adore, has been changed by her time at the Fed and I found her behaviour difficult to read at times. She made me really mad. She is hurting the person she loves the most and trying to protect herself and those she loves. Phoenix is dual point of view so we also get to see Jack's struggle to try to renew his relationship with his wife while she pushes him away.
My heart breaks for Jack. The more difficult Caroline is the more it chips away at his self esteem. It is clear Jack and Caroline are in love and should be together but these two keep getting in each other's way. Phoenix has a lot of angst and heart ache which resulted in plenty of tears from me.
Once again Ms London gives us a fantastic ending leaving me dying for Rhapsody, which this the next instalment. If you haven't read The Bellator Saga you are missing out. It is amazing.
