WHAT A FREAKING RIDE! This book had me flipping pages as fast as I could because I need Meagan Brandy to fix it all. I needed her to redeem characters and make this romance happen, and she did it all while making my heart stop a bit.
Wow! Alec is the worst hero in existence and I love him! Dominating. Controlling. A jerk more often than not. Yet, there is something that is attractive about him, alluring. Maybe I should have been turned off by his “pull her braid because I like her” tactics, but I wasn’t. I loved it all.
Oakley, which, hello, name I love, is a phenomenal heroine. I get that she is maybe a bit weaker in the beginning and men take care of her, but it’s not by choice and she handles herself when the need arises. Her evolution from a girl who pretends to be strong to a woman who is so amazing.
This plot is filled with suspense and secrets, twists and turns. Yes, there is a romantic aspect to the story, but if you are looking for roses and swooning, then this isn’t it. This is angsty and at times sexy, and the ending is sweet. There are moments that I wish would have been explained or developed a bit more and definitely more STEAM, but I love the journey she takes readers on as a whole.
Meagan Brandy is quickly becoming a one-click author for me. I enjoy her writing, especially these ANGSTY AND TWISTY tales, and I like the world she creates. I can’t wait to see where she takes us next.
ARC received in exchange for an honest review
As head of Blackline Academy, I spent my days training with the elite, getting them ready for the one thing each hopes to gain in the end, the chance to call themselves a Blaze.
I had it all figured out, knew exactly who and what I wanted in life, then he came back, determined more than ever to prove me wrong.
He’s forced his way into my world, demanded my attention no matter the cost.
He pushed until I fell.
And then he knocked me down.
But nothing is ever as it seems.
Hate is where it started.
Love is where it was headed.
Lies are what destroyed everything.
Now I’m left to wonder…did I fall for the wrong Blaze?
