This trilogy of Cam and Thea’s story has been a pretty dramatic ride of intense romance. When I first got into this, I admired the way they were so complicated but so easy with each other. Their attraction was obviously more than the bedroom and I really liked that they were as hot for each other as they were obsessed. Well, as obsessed as Cam was, anyway. He’s a very complex guy who had his scary moments but this book explains why he is the way he is (finally) and it only made me love him more… and want to strangle Thea lol.
Cam’s been locked up for breaking the rules, but where Thea’s concerned, no such boarders exist. Still, with his butt in hot water, he has no choice but to face the demons he can’t slice and dice with his weapons. He has to start dealing with what he’s been avoiding, because it’s his future with Thea on the line, now. And he definitely can’t risk that. Meanwhile, Thea’s having a hard time adjusting with all these new things thrown at her. She’s becoming a better angel, but after the attack that left her physically and emotionally hurting, it won’t matter if she has the best angels to watch her back. Can’t help someone who doesn’t want to be helped, after all. Both of them have a lot to deal with, and while it’s always back and forth with these two, I still found myself liking them a little more with every page. Thea bugged me in this one when I felt like she was being mean but I also had to remind myself that she went through a lot. It was hard lol mainly because I wanted Cam to STOP HURTING OH MY GOD- but yeah. The big reveal was pretty intense. I didn’t want to see the ending, but I’m glad it ended the way it did.
I thought Ellis did a great job on her series so far (I hear there’s a spin-off!) and I really appreciated the emotional turmoil I got whenever I had to deal with Cam’s near stalker status and Thea’s… I don’t even know what you’d call it… human heart? Their romance gave me feels, the demonic bit gave me thrills, and I was overall left satisfied. Check it out if you love paranormal romance!
