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.

4.5 stars
