Although I gave the first book in this series, Ruined, a good star rating, I made no secret that I was very annoyed with the editing. I cannot express enough my relief that the editing was a million times better in this story. Therefore, I didn’t get pulled out of the story time after time which means I enjoyed the story all the more.
Jackie Ashenden is, quite seriously, an ace at writing chemistry and heat. She created a sex scene that didn’t contain any sex. Tiger and Summer were completely clothed through the whole thing. But it was so flipping hot, I swear my Kindle overheated! This author is truly a master at her craft.
It’s the nature of a story of this length to have to rush a few things…hence the need for insta-love. Yet this story didn’t feel rushed. But I do wish, in some respects, this was a longer book. Tiger’s story is fascinating and I want to know more. Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t feel this story was lacking at all. It is a complete tale from A to Z with a satisfying conclusion. I just really loved his back story.
Ms. Ashenden has become a solid go-to author for me.
