Ok, so those who know me no I do not do cliffhangers. And I do not usually do YA/NA. Not my thing.
In actual fact, I do really avoid cliffhangers, and well, if I get hit unexpectedly with a cliffhanger………….
Yes, it is fair to say, I do not like them.
And I KNEW going into this it was going to be a cliffhanger. However, I have been informed the 2nd book should be out next month.
I have been a huge fan of this author since she very first contacted me to read her first book and the first book in the Sons of Templar’s series.
And ever since I read which is the story of Bull and Mia, and we had the lovely secondary romance of Lexie and Killian, then we knew in that book, that it all fell apart for our young couple, I have been patiently waiting (**snorts**) for their promised story.
And I loved it. It delivered. It follows along the same timeline, obviously as Out of the Ashes. So there is of course some scenes re told, but from Lexie’s POV. But that is okay, as I knew that would have to happen. And it was a fresh view point.
I loved Lexie and Killian. Killian was a great hero. How much he felt for Lexie. How he was for her, and in the end, how he let her go, how he destroyed himself, so she could fly. He loved her so completely.
And I enjoyed Lexie as a character, yes she was a teenage girl, but actually, she was pretty awesome. Again enjoyed the relationship she had with her mom, as I did in her Moms book. And I loved the little snippets with Lexie and Zane, and how she came to see Zane as her dad.
Overall, it was everything I wanted and more from Lexie and Killian’s story. Loved Lexie’s boys also. Her band.
If I had one tiny complaint it is that towards the end it felt rushed. It ran along the same timeline as Out of the Ashes, so most of the story was up until her Mom got kidnapped and saved, then it jumps forward 6 months and another 6 months. It is a whole year of relationship we miss out on, to get to the heartbreaking part. Or maybe I was just greedy for more of Awesome Boyfriend Killian.
But, it was still an awesome, so much more than I needed 5 stars. Cannot wait for the conclusion to their story.
