Synopsis:
The final, shocking conclusion to the #1 bestselling Gypsy Brothers series.

Juliette Portland’s purpose was simple: Seduce. Kill. Avenge. Once Dornan Ross and his sons were dead, her future was supposed to be clear. Her life was finally going to begin. And love… Against all the odds, she had the love of a boy she never thought she’d see again.

Everything should have gone according to plan. Everything should have been easy once Dornan was dead and buried.

But nothing’s ever that easy, is it?

Juliette

I might have survived Dornan’s wrath, but I was different then. Younger. Stupider. I’ve had too much time to think since I got out of the cage he locked me in. I’ve had too much time to dream about all the things he did to me.
I think about revenge a lot. When I’m thinking of the way the light dimmed in Dornan’s dying eyes and the way he said you killed my sons.
How beautiful it was, and how hollow.

Jason

Sometimes, I can’t tell if I’m starting to become him. My father.Dornan. The way I am, the things I’ve done—they make Juliette’s sins look like child’s play.
Of course, I’d never tell her that. I’ll never tell her the things I’ve done.
It doesn’t mean she won’t find out anyway.


Review:
I pretty much figured that i was going to LOVE the last 20% and only like the first 80%. I’m ok with that! I will admit that I was a little disappointed about the lack of material – i just felt like this one was much shorter than the rest of them. Jase and Juliette finally get a great ending. It wasn’t anything to write your bffl about but it was incredibly sweet and lovely and strangely it wasn’t seen through those two character but through Elliott. Elliott ended the whole series perfectly in my opinion.

OKay the other thing that kind of threw me off was the last two pages. the 8 years earlier. I didn’t expect it to zoom back but to zoom forward. I had hoped that these two had a chance at another baby and some cheesy picket fence happiness. I guess the author left it up to our imagination. I’d like to think these two somehow team up with Zeth and Sloan and take over New York.

I don’t really have much else to say! I liked it. Im glad there was resolution but it wasn’t my favorite in the series. Im pretty content with the way everything turned out.

Summary:

Charles is a guy that likes to play the field. He’s highly sought after in the Mansion, both for his prowess, and his position. He’s content to stay the playboy for life, too, steeped in the culture in which he was raised.

That is, until he finds himself on a mission with Ann, trying to figure out why shifters are mysteriously going missing. Suddenly things that were so clear cut, get muddled.

When Ann succumbs to the danger that is plaguing her kind, all bets are off.

Review:

So….I certainly aggressively tapped my screen hoping that there was a more to this book only to sadly find out that there wasnt. I am sad to see the series end but hey i get it, most good things come to an end. Now lets talk about the book: 

Other than it feeling like it was too short I absolutely LOVED this book. I loved everything about it. We get a glimpse at Sasha and Stefan one last time. We hear the outcome of Paulie, His gang and his woman. We get to see how Jonas ended up and his more caring side, though it isnt exactly considered soft but it is still a delight to see the miniscule changes in him since book one. Last but not least K.F. Breene gives us this golden little nugget full of laughs, angst, and of course full of loyalty and love. I mean it was about time Charles grew up all the way and I am glad it was with Ann. I have been waiting for those two to hook up since Ann was introduced and they started bickering.

I was pretty surprised about how the story actually went, meaning I didn’t expect KF Breene to take it in the direction that she did but i am glad that she did. There was a wicked amount of movement and action with the typical blow shit up scenes and alpha male tarzan saves jane but it was so different with Charles at the front and ready to tear things apart. In this one Stefan wasn’t the one leading the charge and for once Jonas was all silent and steely support. Other than the action…the blood exchange in this one…was hot…it completely threw me off and honestly had me fanning my face a bit. It was just earthy and almost scandalous in such a  good way. Let me just say that when Ann and Charles actually get down to business I am more than impressed and I wasn’t even there!

I wasn’t expecting everything to work out and be dandy between Stefan’s people and the shifters. I suppose that is really just my fault since I have read the series since book one but i just really enjoyed this book. TIt had nothing to do with it being bittersweet since its the last one but for me i think it had a lot to do with how light it was. I dont know really. I was just satisfied with this book as both the Charles book alone and as the end of the series. I was truly thrilled that I had stuck it out through the ups and downs of this series because at the end it was looking back at fond memories with well loved friends.

I just never thought charles would settle down and then he did but he did so in the midst of battle, guys, he had some miracle grow and had an insta-grown up moment where he stormed the castle and took his woman back and whisked her away to safety AND THEN BLEW SHIT UP! sighs…Charles definitely pulls the romantic out of me on a bad day. He is sweet, funny, hawt, super romantic, knows women and knits. He genuinely cares about his “pack” and would move the earth if he could or had to for them.

I thought that Jonas was the end of the series but this, this was perfect and I must say K.F Breene. Thank you. Thank you so much for giving us the ending we so desperately wanted. It was like you tied a cute little bow on top of this story and sent a hug to each reader. It was a great journey and for me this was the best story.

Recommendation:

 HELL YES! If you made it all the way up to Jonas DO IT! PLEASE DO IT! IF YOU HAVENT?! what are you thinking? Go read this series! Book #1 is Free on Amazon Still
