I’m actually happy that i’ve read this series out of order since there’s something to be said about knowing how things will end up but not knowing all the details. In the Slay series, we saw the plot of this book come to fruition, we knew that there was someone from Hudson’s past that was after him but we didn’t know who. We saw him and Alayna imply that it was Celia yet we knew that she had changed. We also knew that Alayna had been kidnapped and saw the result of that, but again didn’t know more.
So in this sixth and final book of the Fixed series, we see the full story line. It starts with yet another note coming to Hudson with a threat, and we see that he’s not quite sure what to make of it since his security detail can’t figure it out. We also see at the same time that his nightclub in AC is having issues with harassment charges against the management coming to life, resulting in firings and a club closure. On top of that, we see Alayna slipping into her obsessive ways again and those are not good behaviors.
Quite a lot going on and several different paths that this story can go, so we have to pay close attention to figure things out. The main one of course though is the secrets that Hudson is hiding in regards to the threat since he doesn’t want Alayna to know, and what we learn of the person behind it all is that it’s immensely personal, and the victim isn’t Hudson at all.
Throughout this story, we see that the relationship and bond between Hudson and his wife is stronger than anyone knew. They both have faults that they love each other more for and when we see how they’ve had to adapt to be happy, it makes for a really lovely relationship. Makes you feel the same way that we all felt about Edward and Celia actually since both of them are quite damaged and complex as well.
In true fashion, we have so much intensity and heat here – so much passion and angst that there’s depth to just about everyone in the story. You’re invested in everyone and that makes a story flow even more. If my own personal life weren’t in chaos right now, I would def have finished this book in a day since I really managed to read it in whole in one day, but picked it up for days on and off TRYING to read.
I’m sad that this part of the story is done but I see that there are supplement books to this series out there which are now next on my list. I hope you try this series out. Enjoy!
