Review:

At the end of this all you could get out of me was a lovesick sigh. something like this:

giphy

God I am in LOVE with PAUL! IN. LOVE. My boyfriend is aware so it’s ok. Paul seriously makes me dreamy and gooey. I love the way that this book was more of his musings and learning to become one mind, body, and soul with Iris. THIS WAS A LOVE STORY! There was compromise and uncertainty. There was glorious freeing pain and unimagineable joy. There were moments of contentment and true happiness. I am simply destroyed with the happy feelings in this book. Granted they aren’t typical gave you flowers feelings these are deep and dark tinted feelings rooted in kinkery. May all the Gods of passion bless this kinkery!!!!
I teared up towards the end of this. I was so sad to see these two go but I was so so happy that the author wrote them such an appropriate ending. I think I needed it as much as the characters deserved it.

This last book tied up all the loose ends, which is really important to me, but also added a softness to their relationship and our relationship as reader and story. obviously i can’t stop gushing about the book and yes i was pretty invested in the characters but for an author to write something so moving that i wept with joy instead of pain is simply remarkable and i am really thankful i was given the chance to read this. Laila Blake has not only gone above and beyond in giving you a glimpse into a bdsm relationship but she wrote something that was equally sexy and sweet.

Out of the Series this was by far my FAVORITE book. I seriously enjoyed that it was mostly from Pauls point of view. For some reason when Paul says something i stop and take note of what it is and i pay super close attention so i dont miss it. hes not even a living breathing person yet he commands my attention like none other! *sighs* i know i said it already but i am sad to see these two go. 5 stars and 3 cheers for Laila Blake and her magnificent work of art!

Recommendation:

Yes please! but don’t forget to read the first two!

Summary:

Sloane

How many times can a person fall down and still get back up? How many times can things go wrong before you just give up?

I’ve lost everything. My home, my job, my purpose in life—everything has been turned upside down. But while life hasn’t exactly turned out the way I would have liked it to, I wouldn’t change a thing. If things were different, I wouldn’t have Lacey. I wouldn’t have Michael.

But most importantly, I wouldn’t have him.

I’ve realized what I feel. He knew it before I did. Only one question remains:

Is he capable of feeling the same way?

Zeth

Secrets are a prison, and I have been behind bars for years. Sloane Romera has been turning keys in all of my locks, throwing light on corners of my mind that I thought would forever be shrouded in darkness. Or at least I had hoped would be.

I have done so many wrongs in this life, and yet this woman has forgiven me. She’s done something I never thought possible—she has learned to understand me, and she hasn’t run. She’s amazed me. She’s saved me. She’s fallen in love with me.

If it’s within my power, I’m about to do the same for her.

Review:

 

Alright so call me a bad reviewer or whatever but I completely forgot to review this book…I read it weeks ago and I remember only bits and pieces of it ONLY because the very last installment wrecked my life and it’s all I can really remember and focus on now.  So here is what I do remember:

–  I was seriously worried for Zeth and Sloane at the end of this one. I was all OMG ARE THEY GONNA BREAK UP! *shrugs* I was being a fangirl because how could they ever!?!

–  What the hell is Rebel’s Story!!!

–  Lacey how could you go with him!!!

–  Dad really!?! WHY HAVE YOU LIED TO ME ALL THIS TIME!!!

–  Could Charlie be anymore psychotic?

–  Did you guys HAVE to kidnap the loud mouth too!?

–  Holy shit Duchess!

–  Poor Michael being tugged back and forth right now

–  Oh god what crazy plan do Rebel and Zeth have?!

–  Awww Zeth you got a puppy?! Yaaaaaaay!

–  Are we there yet!? Where are we going?!

Yes…these are some of the things I recall saying out loud while I was reading. The whole series has sort of merged in my head into one HUGE story and I am sorry I get so excited about reading another book that I didn’t take the time to stop and write about this one. I will say I was NOT in anyway disappointed. I did not feel let down anywhere in the story at all. I keenly remember those moments when they do happen. I did not experience unhappiness with the writing or story itself at anytime. So…This is my tidy, very understated review…im going to bury my head in a sandbox now and hope no one makes fun of my disorganization now.

Recommendation:

Yes please with an extra side of Zeth. Thanks so much!

Summary:

Fallen is the fourth book in the Blood & Roses series. Make sure you check out Deviant, Fracture and Burn prior to reading this instalment.

Sloane

For over two years, Sloane Romera has pinned everything on finding Alexis. Life was going to get better. Easier. Happier. The nightmare of having a missing sister was supposed to end, and everything was supposed to go back to normal.

However, now that she’s found her sister, Sloane is discovering that life has a way of ridiculing what we expect of it.

Nothing is easier.

And ‘normal’ is falling for a man who might never be able to feel the same way.

***

Zeth

A lengthy history of breaking things with his fists has given Zeth Mayfair a fairly good idea of how to get his own way. But when his goal, the one, single woman on the face of the planet that he’s truly ever wanted, can only be obtained by fixing things instead of destroying them, how can he adjust a lifetime of violence in order to make her his once and for all? And how can he make sure that she is safe?

The first part is going to take time. But the second part…

The second part is easy.

He must kill Charlie Holsan.

Review:

Jeeeeeeezzzz Callie! My heart please give it a break! This book was basically the point of no return for Sloane. It highlighted a lot of her life and finished intertwining it with Zeth’s. Fallen was PACKED with action and packed with moments that made you hold your breath and read faster. There were times that I had to re read a page because I rushed to see what happened next and just didn’t absorb what I read. In this book our main characters have acknowledged that they have feelings…they wont admit to how strong those feelings are but they at least admit they have them. They consider walking away from each other but they don’t. They stick it out and they work through it…really they run through it. Zeth goes to some extreme measures to protect Sloane and this time is no different. This time he goes head to head with DEA and Charlie himself. He has been stabbed and shot at and still he keeps moving like nothing. Lacey and Sloane are his family, even Michael is his family.

We see Zeth in a different light after this book. You know he is more man than monster. You see the side of him that Sloane has given up EVERYTHING for. She leaves her friends and family behind, her job, and her security. She strips herself bare of all of the things that make her Dr. Sloane Romera and she decides to stand tall by Zeth. She annoyed me in book one and two but for me Sloane has come a long way. I love her feistiness and her gumption. She is an all or nothing type of girl. I feel bad for her when it comes to her sister but I am hoping for some answers to this in the next couple of books.

I was left wanting more on this one. I instantly wanted the next book and almost got it but stopped myself. I feel the need to drag it on just a while longer. The series is almost at an end and I just don’t know what I am going to do with myself.

I feel like this review is a little on the flat side because I read this maybe a 3 weeks ago and have since read a bunch of books so the details are hazy but I do know for a fact that I loved it and loaned it to a friend of mine and then had someone else buy it.

Recommendation:

 I mean come on, I loaned it and had someone else buy it so YES YES YES!
