This is the second part and I enjoyed this as much as the first. This starts where the last book left off with Gabriella taken captive by persons unknown. In this, we get to see glimpses of a more humane and caring version of Stefan right alongside his more usual extreme and harsh persona. Stephan himself is his own worst enemy and here he struggles with what he ultimately wants and it seems the deeper he falls down the rabbit hole the more of a dick he is to Gabriella. Sort of like a form of self-preservation if you will. Gabriella herself is still behaving like a petulant child though but I do think there are signs that she is also starting to grow somewhat. I have made some allowances for her tender age and the fact that she just doesn’t know who to trust anymore, With so many unknown enemies some even hiding in plain sight her head is naturally in a spin, combine that with a husband that at times seems to have at times a split personality I think it’s understandable that she’s behaving the way she is. The ultimate dynamic here between Gabriella and Stefan is all push and pull, light and dark as Stefan pushes his ownership of his new fiance to its very limit. This second instalment also turns up the heat and this was scorching in terms of content. This was well written and compelling reading this author always delivers consistently and manages to invest my attention just so easily. Finally, I adored both the epilogues they were just so touching and heartfelt. This is a great duet that I recommend especially if you like a dark bite with your romance.
