A woman unable to connect, struggling to hide another part of her. A man burning to learn her truth, and make her whole. Through explosive passion and deep exploration, they are about to take the greatest risk of all. But will they be able to take that leap, and come out on the other side together? In this next passionate novel in the Honey series, New York Times bestselling author Kristen Ashley delivers a stunningly romantic and intensely sexy novel that will stay with you long after you turn the final page.
I read Kristen Ashley to forget the reality – her particular style of writing romances does tend to suck me in, making me feel every feeling under the sky with physical intensity.
Yet, this addition to The Honey Series – which has been off character for KA already – somehow missed the spot! Now; I am totally open about hot scenes between the MCs; whatever floats their boat; but this book had even me uncomfortable (personal opinion, for sure!).
Stellan is a character that has been on the forefront in previous additions to the Honey Series, but almost always as a contender to the affections of ladies who are not his to have – so I have not really liked him and he still didn’t make any impression for at least 20% of the book! The way he handled the “game” was just irritating to me tbh; and I didn’t see how he could even begin to understand the demons that Sixx was dealing with.
But he did grow on me, as their relationship grew for he slowly but surely did start to understand Sixx; and I myself grew to adore how he adored who Sixx was to him and as a woman.
Sixx is a woman dealing with demons – and I do not say this lightly. But she is also strong, willful woman who has overcome a whole wacky childhood to become a self – sufficient woman who answers nor bows down to anyone!
But it was the plot that lacked the actual magic of KA – and it breaks my heart to say this, but this has to be my least favourite KA book of all. I am giving the rating I did, mostly because of who Stellan and Sixx were as characters rather than the story itself.
