Laurelin Paige - who is this Celia Werner, and where is the woman we love to hate?
I am going to type words that I never thought I would ever, ever type.
I felt something other than hate for Celia Werner.
I wasn't sure I was going to like this book, based on my prior knowledge and dislike of our leading lady Celia.
I couldn't be more wrong. In fact, I kind of felt sorry for her at the beginning of this story. Sure, Celia is still up to her Celia-games, however it is now a case of is the the player, or is she being played?
I am not sure what I think of our leading man, Edward. I know I want to like him, I know I will eventually like him, but at the moment he is a mixed bag of sweet and tender, and ar$ehole, and I am waiting to see which side of him wins out.
I did feel at times that this installment went round in circles for a bit, and felt a little bit like it was padding out the story - and had me wondering if there would be enough story for four books? However, I know Ms Paige won't lead me astray.
I just hope we are not kept waiting too long for part 2!
Celia Werner is a conniving woman who plays people and winning however that is until she meets Edward Fasbender. Now he is an arrogant alpha male who is used to getting his own way and determined to triumph at any cost. Has she met her match?
Both lead characters are extremely intriguing. They don’t scream ‘I’m loveable’ straight away however Celia seems to be so misguided. I cheered her on though when she rebelled every now and then, whether it worked or not. I have to admit the author does an amazing job of making readers see Edward in an very poor light and I personally wanted to clobber him quite a few times. 😂 I am looking forward to seeing if his character becomes even the slightest bit more flexible in the next book.
This really is a very easy book to read because of its fast pace and the storyline doesn’t lag at any time. There is please of excitement and that ending really does slay you!
This book is writing perfection! Laurelin Paige has a way with words and those words flow like poetry through the pages. To say that I am gobsmacked with Slay is an understatement. Laurelin’s ability to take the evil Celia Werner and partner her up with someone more evil in Edward Fasbender is totally genius. These two will keep you on the edge of your seat and eating up the pages.
You go into this book thinking one thing in regards to Celia and the way she is, then at the end you don’t know if you should laugh at her or cry for her. Now Edward on the other hand is a deliciously depraved, arrogant dominant that will have you panting one minute and ready to shoot him down the next. But the man can put a spell on you that’s for sure.
The game is on and I’m dying to see what Laurelin Paige has in store for us in the next book. My recommendation is that you read The Fixed Trilogy and Fixed Forever if you haven’t.
Wow!sa - What a fantastic book! . I could not turn the pages quickly enough and Celia is just as awful as I remember her from the Fixed Trilogy but I have to say I did love getting some insight into her character & motivations for "why" she was the way she was. I'm not sure how it happened but I even warmed to her a little in this one - who knew!!! Now Edward - well he is all sorts of dirty and evil. Like genuinely evil. They kind of deserve each other. That ending had my face like this😳
I absolutely CANNOT wait for book 2 - need more words!!
