“Hatred is a one-way emotion.” I take a breath. “It only affects the person holding on to that hate. Take Laney’s ex, for example…” I face him, but he’s already watching me. “Do you think he knows how much you hate him? Do you think he cares that you do? (…) Does he even know you exist?” His lashes lower. “So, what’s the point, right?” I murmur. “Only you carry the burden of hatred, Leo. And it’s a lot easier to let go of that pain than it is to hold on to it.” – 5/5 stars!

heartache and destruction, guilt and regret.
Mia gives Leo everything he didn’t know he needed,
including her fragile heart.
The only thing she doesn’t give him…
are secrets of her own.
This book took me by surprise. Compared to the first two books in the series (Lucas and Logan), this book has a very solid, complete plot – and that’s why it felt so different from the others.
For starters, I felt a bit intimidated because this book is over 600 pages long, while the others have around 300. What was even more shocking is that I finished the book in 3 days! It was really fast paced and there was so much going on that I was entertained the entire time! I finished reading this book a while now, but I keep thinking about how memorable it was, knowing it was supposed to be a smutty romance. I can’t say the same about the other two books even though I loved them.
I think this definitely deserves the 5 stars! It’s full of romance, the plot is complex and and very well developed, there is the right amount of depth and surprises… it was just perfect!I hope this won’t be the final book of this series because I want to read more! Seriously, I would love to read about the rest of the family. The twins and Lucy don’t have a book yet – and maybe Tom? That would be cool! I would read every single book about this family if the author would write about them. A great addition to the series! *Fingers crossed it’s not over*
