I adore this author and I have been so looking forward to the story of Luke and Rosie.

But I felt like at times I was waiting for the story to start.

This may be just me, but I found the time jumps too much. For me I would rather just read a book from start to finish in a “traditional” timeline way. I just do not like time jumps back, it brings me out of the story and makes me feel like I am waiting for the actual real story to start. I know why the author did it, as there is a LOT of crossover with previous books, but for me, I do not find it works.

And it meant I lost the flow of the story as the time jumps back where not always necessarily in a timeline order. They jumped about a bit.

Also, not sure what happened to Rosie!? I know she was kick ass, but she was positively a sociopath super girl/homicidal maniac here. I found her hard to warm to, she was quite derisive of a “normal” life. And the dialogue was a touch too wordy for me which meant I found it hard to feel comfortable with the characters.

I still enjoyed it, I did. I was waiting and waiting for the story of Luke and Rosie but at times I struggled to follow along, or found myself skipping some of the more wordy dialogue! I am a simple soul really, and maybe my heart still lies so very much with Cade, or Bull, or Brock (or actually all 3!) from Sons of Templar.

I did however LOVE when Luke was heading to the compound for the first time as Rosie’s boyfriend.

And I CANNOT wait for Polly and Heath. (There is a Polly and Heath right??)

Overall, is it my favourite of Anne Malcom’s? Nope. Did I enjoy it? I did. And she still remains one of my favourite authors, with some of my favourite characters.

Also….Lucien??? I sorta liked him!
