Sometimes love’s not enough. And if it’s not enough, what good is it?
Eva and Gideon’s relationship is still very fresh, very fragile. And they seem to keep getting hit from every side. It might prove to be a bit too much. For both of them.
I enjoy Day’s writing a lot. It’s very easy and pleasant to read. It’s not a problem for me to finish her book in 2-3 hours. The dialogues and Eva’s internal monologue both feel incredibly natural. And the sex scenes are very well written as well. Sure, maybe some of them are a little bit over the top, but that’s what’s fun about them, right?
I have so much love for this series mainly because of Day’s ability to create characters that just feel real. I adore them and I care for them deeply. But in this novel they are acting SO ANNOYING! And yes, it all eventually makes sense. But to get there you have to go through SO MUCH DRAMA that just feels kind of forced and pointless (spoiler alert: it’s not).
Okay, so this book, as opposed to Bared to You, actually has some semblance of a plot. Is it the most complex plot of all time? No, of course not. But it’s very engrossing and that’s really all I need.
Eva and Gideon’s relationship in this book is very… complicated. To say the least. It’s a real rollercoaster. And yes, this lack of stability gets annoying after a while, but trust me. The reveal at the end is truly worth it.
I think it’s my least favourite book in this whole series. The characters act a little weird, some of their actions seem to have no sense at all. And even though all of this build-up is completely worth the result, I understand that getting to the end might be a little challenging. Still, I urge you to give this book a shot, because I swear that all will start making sense. Eventually, haha.
