Series: A Modern Fairy Tale Duet #2
He can never turn back into a prince…
A troubling revelation puts Blake’s newfound career in jeopardy–and even worse, puts Erin’s impending graduation at risk. He can’t risk her future no matter how much he wants her.
She will never have a happily ever after…
A dark legacy threatens everything they’ve worked to build. When old debt comes between them, both Blake and Erin must fight to protect each other–and their love.
Since their forbidden beginning, Erin and Blake’s relationship has been marked by deep sensuality and intense emotion. The couple is tested at every turn. They’re running out of time. Blake and Erin will have to trust each other to forge their own sexy ending.
It’s been a roller coaster of sorts as we watched this relationship take shape, evolve and then run into challenges towards the end of the first installment. We knew that they weren’t destined to be together for one reason or another, but the attraction that they have for each other, the desire that they share potentially could allow them to overcome it all.
It’s graduation time for Erin, and we want to see her get all that she’s earned and deserves. The degree, the man, the life, but that doesn’t seem like it’s a given. No matter how hard she tries to prove herself in school, there are people who want to cut her down. And there’s the stigma of the impact Blake has on her, on the people around her and the decision makers for her.
There is also a lot for Blake to overcome in this story – he’s got his own demons, his own past to overcome and the experiences that brought him back to this world that impact who he is and how he reacts.
What confuses me a bit in this story is the history that we start to learn and the connection that we learn about between Erin and Blake that precedes them. The notion that Erin’s mother has history with Blake’s father is confusing and random and explains a lot when we learn of the predisposed opinions, but then there’s the added layer of what no one else knew, and what others involved int he situation knew which implied things were not as they seemed even at the time.
Regardless, what we have is complex, romantic, hot and gives you hope that things can change in the future if you allow yourself to block out the noise of others, and when you choose to listen to the noise, how you can make your own story and path. This may not have been my favorite ‘series’ from our author, but i’ll give her a pass since she’s written many of my favorites. Enjoy!
