I am a big fan of Jennifer Lynn Barnes as an author and intend to buy anything she writes in future and am on a quest to own everything she has published thus far so I bought this book the moment I could and I was beyond excited when I got my hands on it. It took me a while to read it and with college happening things kept getting in the way but with forty minutes of free time at the end of the day and an hour and ten bus ride, it was done!

Once I got my free time, I could not put this book down. I love the characters and didn't need a reread of the first book to refresh me on them, I remembered them like I remember the way around my local supermarket. 

The book is fast paced and so loveable, constantly leaving me guessing and ripping away the answers that I thought I'd had when I had nothing else. The characters are complex and so morally grey, I love it!


Though I'm disappointed that Avery appears to have chosen Jameson over Grayson I am glad that the triangle seems to be solved before the third book! The incest-y vibe at the start of the book did unnerve me but I'm glad Barnes isn't following Cassandra Clare's footsteps 😅. If you need to use the word technically, when talking about incest, it's already too close!
