I did my best to pace myself while reading this but it obviously did not go so well! :) I was lucky enough to be able to get a copy when the author did a random 5 minute link to purchase it off of Smashwords. Sometimes the transferring from Smashwords to my Kindle can be annoying but for this book it was definitely worth it.
It was amazing to see how much Ara grew in this book and how much of her personality is just part of her character as well. There were so many moments that were shocking to me. I always love the history and the detail that Hudson goes into in these books educating the reader on the background of the characters. I was super happy to see the diversity represented this time around especially since I had conversed with Hudson over a few e-mails about that.
The book was packed with surprises and all kinds of secrets were revealed. I cannot wait for the next book in the series to see what happens next. One event in particular I know is not going to turn out well and I really want to get through the mayhem of that so that hopefully the silver lining or brighter side comes out sooner. It's definitely going to be a doozy when it's all revealed. What I think I like most about this series is that even though we all want to know who will Ara end up with in the end the story line is so engaging and filled with so much mystery that I am equally if not more invested at times for those mysteries to be revealed.
