It was filled with many questions but still no answers, though it was quite predictable and seemed to pull for a confusing plot. It was no slow-burn romance; just cut-off moments. It was an all-consuming read that sought attention. The scenes are suggestive of certain tensions and emotionally conflicting.

GAAAAH I LOVE THIS SERIEEESS!!! This book is a strong 5 ⭐️ but it was a bit hard to get hooked from the beginning. It had been awhile since I read the first book and did not remember who had killed who and so on, I was a little bit disoriented.  BUUUT I WAS SO GLAD I CONTINUED BECAUSE GAH I LOVED IT❤️❤️❤️

After 119 pages I decided to dnf this read. I’m done with the “flirting” and the bad dialogue. The main character is badly written and the love interest is toxic. Because of my doubt I decided to read some of the high valued scenes and I’m disgusted. I’m okay with some spice but it should be with consent and chapter 17 just wasn’t it. Rape or Sexual assault should not be romanticized. It’s dangerous and fucking disrespectful.

I am once again begging authors to reducing, reusing, and recycling the same tropes.
