The only bad thing about this book is that the next one isn’t out for another two months. I could cry. I am a book binger, and didn’t check to make sure everything was out before I started the series. Shame on me. That said, I am enamored with this series so far. Suspense. Drama. Back and forth angst. A dominant alpha man who doesn’t allow himself to feel. Mystery. Good supporting characters. Scary villains. Action. Love. Hot sexy times. I have so many questions for the third book! I need answers! I need more Dante! I need more Joseph! I NEED the third book! If you like kidnapping stories… stories of obsession… stories with hot men of organized crime… then this series is for you! Fans of Anna Zaires’ series and Mia Knight’s Crime Lord series in particular will probably love this series. I stumbled upon this series from a suggestion in a Facebook comment in a reader group, and I couldn’t be more pleased! I don’t know how or why this series doesn’t have 10x more reviews because it is amazing. Do yourself a favor and read this one! Recommended!
I came across this series as a suggestion in a Facebook group comment of all places, and I’m sure glad I did! I don’t know how I haven’t come across this author before, but this book was great! I am so excited for the second book, and so crushed that the third book’s release date got pushed out until late June. Say it ain’t so! I am a fan of a good kidnapping book, and this one delivers. I like that he never hit her (outside of a few swats on the behind, but that hardly counts), and he didn’t force her. Big points in my book. He intimidated her, sure. Threatened her. But at the end of the day, he relented and granted a degree of mercy on more than one occasion when she asked him to do so. More big points. He doesn’t just push her around, expecting her to fall in line and develop feelings for him as sometimes happens in this kind of book. Thank goodness. I can already imagine a whole host of other books to possibly come from this world the author has created. There are at least two I’d like to see go on the schedule as soon as the third book in this series is released. I love a good five-star read, and I love it even MORE when it comes out of left field, unexpected. Oh, man- if you like kidnapping-turned-love stories I suspect you’ll love this book. I sure did. Recommended!
I LOVE this author’s style. She writes the most incredible romantic suspense. In a Goodreads world slammed full of dark romance/contemporary romance Aleatha Romig’s books stand apart. The suspense/dark component isn’t just window dressing- it could stand on its own even without the romance. And that’s saying something. No other author that I’ve read quite manages to do that. This book was HOT. And suspenseful. And angsty with the feelings, and secrets, and secrets about feelings, and surprises. And the cliffhanger? Oh my! Off I go to book #3! Thank goodness the whole series is already out. I couldn’t do it… I couldn’t wait for it. Recommended!
This is the start of my second series by this author (the first being Consequences), and man… it appears she did it again. I truthfully didn’t think she could put out another series as good as Consequences, and yet here we are. I was not a huge fan of the back and forth between the past and present in the beginning of the book, to be honest. I think the effect would have been the same if it had been a linear story line. That said, it was still really good! Nox and Charli sizzle- his commanding ways coupled with her inexperience are so satisfying. I also really bought into the drama with her family in Georgia- the dynamic, what they expected of her, what they were willing to take from her to gain her compliance. It truly presented a hopeless situation. I am so very glad the whole series is out so I don’t have to wait to find out what happens next. How does Alex react? Have we heard the last of Bryce? How is this whole thing going to work? I need answers! Recommended!
Man, what a ride! A great end to another great trilogy from Meghan March. As usual I ripped through all three books like a woman obsessed, dying to know what happened next. This author crafted some really heartbreaking and frustrating scenes in this one that made me want to tear my hair out. BUT, since we always get our happily-ever-afters with Megan March you know she brought it back around and fixed it. Sour, then sweet. Like Sour Patch Kids. I so thoroughly enjoy her stories. I admit that Lachlan Mount from the Mount Trilogy is still my #1 man out of all of her books, but Jericho Forge really put in the work trying to dethrone him. And evidently Forge DID dethrone Mount for many fans if her Runaway Readers group is any indicator. Another highly recommended trilogy from Megan March, one of only a small handful of authors to whom I grant my automatic and unquestioning one-click. TIP: go ahead and buy all three. You WILL need them. And don’t start them u less you have time to FINISH THEM ALL in one go. You’ll be sorry if you do. Happy reading!
Thank God I waited for the third book to come out before I read the second-that cliffhanger is brutal! As usual Megan March has gifted us with a steamy book full of both suspense and romance, heavy on both. Jericho Forge, forever bachelor, really comes around to wanting to find a way to keep India despite their unusual beginning. She is feeling the same way, but it takes a long time for either to admit it. Both are stubborn and independent so it is a broken road they travel on the way to their feelings, but is oh-so-satisfying. Recommended, as always. I’m off to read the final book!
Have mercy- where to begin! I’ve never anticipated a book release like I did this one. Ever. And it didn’t disappoint. Jericho is… he’s…. (fanning myself)… oh, my. He’s arrogant. Bossy. Sexy. In control. All in the best way. I found my own breath catching as the story unfolded, and he and Indy discovered one another. As he awoke something in her that had been dormant for quite some time. SO hot. Fire. I can’t even handle it that I have to wait a month for the next book. Those of you that are waiting to read this until the third book is released: I salute your steely resolve. You are better women (or men!) than me. Highly recommended!
This book hooked me in right from the start. Oh, the deliciousness of King and Doe. He was possessive of her from nearly the first moment he laid eyes on her… just how I like it! I swooned when he swooped in and rescued her in the beginning of the book. And I thoroughly enjoy an alpha who admits that he knows better, but makes the “bad decisions” anyway. Sign me up, please! I loved the solid supporting characters around King and Doe as well. Preppy weaseled his scary ass right into my heart immediately. I couldn’t decide if I wanted to hug him, or pepper spray him. I imagine it would depend on the day. Bear was quite a tasty little appetizer himself. I’m glad we got the chance to experience his story later in the series. Because… yum. Generally I’m not into the biker characters or stories, but somehow it really worked for Bear. Extra bonus? King is included in Kindle Unlimited (KU).

If these genres blow your skirt up, as they do mine, check out my reviews. If you are like me, you are forever chasing that next elusive five-star read. Make it easy on yourself, and just cheat off of mine. I won’t tell.
I’m just out here doing my part for humanity. These books won’t read themselves.
