I really enjoyed the first book with Tilly and Keaton’s story, and Kipling was the hot older brother with a roguish attitude who knew just where to push Alyssa’s buttons. Seeing them have their little hot interactions made me excited for their story in the series, and now that I’ve read it, I can say I’m pretty content.
It starts off with Knox and Bea’s wedding, and both the MCs are contemplating their single status and why exactly it is that they remain this way. Keaton will always have my heart for being my first Benedict, but there’s just something primal about Kipling. He’s got like this intimidating aura that comes with being the first born, and okay, his past pretty much explains why he is the way he is, but I really find his flirtatious ways endearing. Alyssa was as serious as he was fun, but when they’re together, it was like they encouraged something within them to grow. They learned to be more relaxed, to indulge in their desires. And picture all of this going on while trying to deal with a kidnapping. Can you imagine the stress?
The Gentleman was always a weird, bitter villain but this installment really showed you why he became such a vindictive soul. It was almost sad, because I felt like his life
could’ve been so much better if someone had smothered him before he went crazy was doomed from the moment he first laid eyes on the Franklin Benedict. Tragic characters are always interesting to me, and it made this book more exciting.
It’s a multiple POV with Alyssa and Kipling both simultaneously fighting a dangerous clock and solving a mystery, and I appreciated the extra set of eyes because it widened the lenses for you to truly take in the tangle of lies and deceit. It was crazy, everything that was revealed, and it kept me reading until the end. If you enjoy easy readings with intense action and suspense, try this series out.
