Conclusion

Even though the last book wrapped up everything, and finally the real culprit was revealed, I still felt that the book fell short. I don’t really do trilogy but the first book was so so good and I wanted to see what will the end be like and I was disappointed 😒. Harper didn’t do it for me in the last 2 books, too much of the same rehearsed drama for no reason👀

two thumbs way down!!

oh wow I can't believe how terrible this book is. the first book was the best in this series. thank goodness it's part of the romance package. do not waste your credit!!! story- so weak it's unbelievable, still like the characters and was rooting for the leads but after a while the back and forth got really annoying. writing- so repetitive it hurts to listen!! it came to a point where I wanted to give up but I feel like I invested too many hours to not go to the end. narrators- Erin Mallon...still love her but the deep breathing is lol sorry for this bashing review but didn't enjoy at all. got bored waiting for something to happen. save yourself the time

Awful

Book 1 was the best book. I couldn’t get with book 2 and 3. I’m writing this book while listening to the last book. I am only finishing the last book because I want to know what happen. I want to know what all the hype and speculations was all about. This book is very repetitive. I think this is a trend with this writer. I noticed this in another series. As far as this series, the back and forth of the characters was so annoying. Harper was annoying and whiny and just got on my nerves. Erin Mallon suck as Eric... and there were more times than not that she sucked as Harper, especially the way she drags out a word. If I hear the words Savant, Bastard and Kingston 1 more time I’ll lose my mind. You hate your family, I get it, we get it, move on to the next point. I also get that you want some you time but really, you go out without protection with an assassin on the loose. I don’t care that he’s a seal, that was not a seal type decision, I doubt they’re this stupid and careless. I love sex scenes as much as the other person but not every other scene, it’s like they were using sex as a filler. Honestly this could have been a longer story, 1 book. I was just so annoyed with so many things. If not for the fact that this was a free book, I would definitely be getting my credit back. Harper is so naive, as much as they claim she’s smart. She sees the best in everyone even when they show her their true colors. She is so gullible. The constant, I have to tell you something but it’s not the right time, I don’t want to hurt you, but you’ll find out anyway and it’ll hurt you worst was annoying as heck also. Just a totally bad story to me. Book 1 was the best, and it annoyed me at times also.

AN ENJOYABLE AND SUSPENSEFUL TRILOGY.. mostly

Hummm.. well, I’ve gone through many different and varied opinions of this trilogy as I was binge-listening to it.. and they ranged from gripping, masterful, sexy, tense, thrilling, exciting, tender and romantic to - repetitive, frustrating, boring, over-sexed and, in the end, a wee bit rushed. But, despite its peaks and troughs, this dual POV trilogy was very enjoyable, suspenseful and often intense as clues had to be slowly pieced together, a murderer with his (or her) reasons had to be uncovered, motives had to be revealed, all secrets had to be disclosed, trust had to be given and earned.. and foundations had to be laid for an all-consuming love. Erin and Jason (sigh) did a fantastic job as usual with the narration and they infused, injected and inflected all the fundamental elements together to enable me to create colorful mental images, to bring the story and its characters to life and to cringe, blush, reel, rock and relish every word. Worth a credit? Yes, IMO, it would’ve been.. however, I didn’t have to use any - and that’s the beauty of being a member of the Romance Package.. it’s a win win situation and there’s nothing to lose.. well except time and patience of course :)

The title should have been ...

“Let’s Repeat the Same Words ad Nausium”. How many times does a reader need to be hit over the head with - I want him, I need him, I should go, I’m damaged. I cannot believe this series got 5 stars in so many reviews. It seems that the author proved that you can put many sentences on repeat. Seriously, it was like watching TV reruns. You’ve seen it before so you can fast forward - A LOT! What ended up being a mediocre trilogy could have been one good book. There are diehard romance readers out there in “the land of lovers and dreams” who know this is true. At for the narrators, Jason Clarke was a perfect Eric. I was a bit disappointed with Erin Mellon’s Harper. Something was off, perhaps too much sing-song in her cadence at the end of the sentences. I do like Ms. Mallon, just not this particular time. The character of Harper was annoying, too. How many times did she tell her mother to not call her step father “dad”? Too many too count. At which point, if Harper had a spine, mommy would have been told to cease contact until she referred to Mr. Kingston in the correct form when speaking to her daughter. When I add up all the positives and negatives I honestly can’t give this book or the series more than 2.5 stars.

I'm glad it's over

I really had hoped this book would end this series with a bang but no. Other than finding out how it all ends this book was on heavy repeat of five phases. if I never heard the word savant and suckle it would be too soon! this book/series had so much potential!! It's like no beta readers or a decent editor was used. this really bothers me. heck I would have volunteered my service as a beta reader. I think she should do like Vi KeeLand did rewrite the series do a new release and new female voice. never never get Erin to read anything else unless it's soft porn.

Good Story but repetitive..

I enjoyed the story and was sucked in to anticipation of the ending, but was annoying with the repetition and drawn outness of the story.

I never leave reviews, but......

I really struggled to finish this book. The story dragged along, and I felt that these characters' story could have been adequately told in two books. I love the characters and the narrators but admittedly skipped through portions of the book just to be done with it.

So much internal discussion

Most of the book is Harper's discussing with herself about feelings and impressions. So annoying. I skipped about half the book to get the information. It's hours of biting around the bushes for one information. Very boring. The only thing that kept me was Eric. The character is really well thought.

Some bits were repetitive but good story though

loved the suspense and twists in this story however I felt the constant repetition of the characters questioning each others feelings and motives was unnecessary. I skipped through alot if the third book because I'd heard it all before.
