This one was NOTHING like book 1, and most definitely nothing like Kerri's debut series. There was hardly any plot buried beneath all of the unnecessary graphic sex. And, Emilia was so not a badass in this one at all. She kept repeating her "mission" but never had any follow through because of all of her "desires".  She was super annoying, and I'm not a prude by any means, and I'm all for females exploring their right to their desires, but for being an 18 year that's never really been introduced to anything sexual, other than trashy novels, she was way too interested and distracted by sex, and she had no real character development beyond it. 

The story hardly had any development, the characters were so one dimensional, and the "plot twists" were super predicable. There were only a few bits of actual story in between all of the smut that actually kept me going. But, the graphic sex was so much that I honestly don't know if I will be reading the third back, despite how badly I want to know how it all ends.
