ARC BOOK REVIEW
I Was so looking forward to diving into the second book in the Blood Duet series and Defied (Blood Duet #2) certainly didn’t disappoint; this started exactly where we left off in Sworn and almost immediately we are thrown right back into the thick of things.
“Defied” was action packed throughout and I so enjoyed reconnecting with both Avery and Lincoln.
In this second volume, we finally get the answers we have been waiting for and I felt that we finally got to fully bond and empathise much more with both Avery and Lincoln.
Finally comprehending the reasonings behind there outward personas and life choices.
In return, this made me feel so much more connected to our leading couple; I was so invested in the final outcome for these two.
This was really easy to get lost in and “Defied” managed to absorb me fully almost from the beginning.
Its told in dual POV and also has some interesting and also some very unsavoury individuals.
In Defied I was sucked right into the colourful ambience of what was ultimately the dark belly of New Orleans.
I adored the dynamic between Avery and Lincoln very much and thought that together they made a fantastic pair.
Their broken pieces just fit together so beautifully and when these two stopped fighting there feelings the outcome for both was fantastic and addictive reading.
This also had just the right balance of action versus sexy times and the emotion here was incredibly believable; I actually wanted these two to pull through the shitstorm ahead.
And most important of all they were both so very likeable; totally the cherry here for me.
“Defied” at its heart was well written and a truly positive experience for me.
Thank You to the Author for providing me with an ARC of “Defied (Blood Duet #2)” of which I have reviewed voluntary.
