WoW! I am definitely in book lust with Ethan Blackstone! This series is a wild ride full of intense passion, intrigue, and hot sex!
We get to know the story from Ethan’s POV in All in. It starts right where Naked left off, with Brynne leaving him on the “lift” from his office. I always enjoy stories told from the male perspective if it’s done right, and All In was. I think it must have been hard for a female from California to write a male from London’s perspective, but she did it—and it was awesome getting in Ethan’s head!
“All in, baby” I whispered, “it can’t be any other way with us.”
But he is right. It could not have been different than what is was. Their love was intense and all-consuming from the beginning and it would not have worked if it was anything else. I say this because of their backgrounds—they would have denied themselves love if they hadn’t been unable to by the extreme pull they had to one another.
As for there backgrounds. We finally get to the root of what is causing Brynne so much pain. It is absolutely horrifying. I felt so sad for her, and understood her inability to trust because of it. However, we still do not get the entire story
of Ethan, and his demons (we do get glimpses
). So I’m guessing the big reveal will come in the last book Eyes Wide Open.
I never knew what was going to happen next. I was on the edge of my seat! The possibility of someone hurting Brynne because of what happened to her is a real threat. And it becomes more apparent as the story unfolds.
The ending was not as bad of a cliffhanger as the last book, but left us with many unanswered questions. I can’t wait to jump into it—it is sitting in my Kindle ready!!!
I highly recommend this series, and this book! Although it is not that similar to Fifty Shades and Crossfire, it is similar enough that fans of those novels will like this one.
*Off to read Eyes Wide Open* ;-)~StacyHggBooks Unhinged Book Blog
