ARC BOOK REVIEW
So this is book two in the Merciless series and one I was desperately awaiting after that shocking finale we were treated to in its predecessor.
So in “Heartless” we actually dial it down a notch and instead really just concentrate on the overall dynamic that is building between Aria and Carter and here I felt we get much more of a sense of connection between the two; more so than I originally felt in Book one.
While this was great and I did really enjoy exploring and deciphering the obscurity which is Carters’ brain as well as getting to understand more of what makes Aria tick this did mean a much slower pace overall.
For that reason alone, I think I enjoyed this slightly less than “Merciless”
It just wasn’t as all-out action and I felt it did drag slightly at times.
I mean book one was just so hectic and I think I was expecting this to be along a similar vein.
This wasn’t necessarily bad just different.
I still really enjoyed this a whole lot though; it was just much more internal angst than I was anticipating until about 70 percent in that is; here it then did start to pick up majorly barreling headlong towards another major cliffhanger.
And that’s another thing I could have sworn this was a duo, not what looks to be a four-parter so I was kinda expecting a conclusion that we didn’t actually get; got to say I was a tad bummed out at that fact.
This again had few minimal characters as practically all events occur at the house under lockdown.
This was also as expected super hot setting the pages alight with its raw sensuality.
Told in duel POV and after that ending; well its safe to say I for one will be waiting anxiously for the next chapter here.
This was a great second instalment that I am happy to recommend.
Thank you to the author for providing me with an ARC of “Heartless” of which I have reviewed voluntary.
All opinions are entirely my own.
In January 2016 Willow was staying up late with Evie and just thinking of all these stories. They came to her constantly so she finally sat down and just started writing. She always wanted to do it so she figured, why not? Today Willow cannot be happier for making that decision!
