Rating update on March 10th, 2022:
4.25 to 4.75
I'll keep what I said because I continue agreeing with everything BUT I've been thinking about the rating of this book because I'm reading of the books in the series and now that I just finished "Bound by Vengence" I can no longer keep the old rating. Now it's 4.75, I think there are only two or three books left so let's see how it'll turn out (I'm hoping for more Aria and Luca).


Well, I've read the book already but when the audiobook appeared as a suggestion I was just like "why not?" and I don't regret a thing.

I'm growing used to audiobooks and I'm loving it. I don't know if it's because I read the book before listening but I feel like I liked it better this time.

The thing is: this book will never get five stars from me because I just HATE one part of it and I can't pretend it's not there when I'm rating it (even though I do it throughout the rest of the book).
Spoiler The fact that he cheated on her makes me sick.

While I'm writing this, I already started listening to "Luca Vitiello" - bound by honor by Luca's pov - doesn't change much about what he did because I understood what he meant even without knowing about his side on this (I'll write more about that when I finish that one). 
Spoiler All of this is just to say that there is no good reason for cheating. Hell, there's no REASON at all to cheat and make be on the cheater's side
  (I started a disclaimer but I just don't feel like it rn).
