Awesome series ending with plenty going on!
I don’t know about everyone else, but sometimes when I get to the last book of a series about a couple and what happens is that the beginning consists of wrapping up whatever cliffhanger ended the last book, and then there is three quarters of a book that is somewhat of a sappy happily ever after. I end up getting sort of bored and skimming the rest of the book despite loving the HEA.
That did NOT happen in this book even though it was the fifth book in a series about two people in a relationship. That speaks to how well Pepper Winters can write romance. This book had a lot going on with both Sully and Jinx. I really enjoyed the strife, the setting and everything that happened.
This book had more of my two favorite parrots, Pika and Skittles. The island setting and their antics truly added to every scene they were in and make me really want to live in the tropics and have some parrots. Actually this entire book had me wanting to move to the Goddess Isles and live there forever. What a great getaway this series was! I just loved every minute.
I call this a series ending even though two more books are planned because it truly was. Pepper Winters describes at the end of the book that the two following novellas are separate even though technically a part of this series. They also contain people from some of her previous series but you don’t have to read those in order to enjoy these two novellas. I can’t wait to read more and I plan to read the other series as well (at some point).
This book includes Tess and Q in a few scenes. They are from the Monsters in the Dark series (I will probably re-read that again as well at some point). But I remembered it enough to be happy that they were included especially since Eleanor/Jinx met Tess for a bit when they were both abducted by the same sex traffickers, and both of them fought against being stolen in their own ways. So that was a nice addition to this story.
This was another book where the relationship between Sully and Eleanor was super steamy. I give this book 5 flames out of 5 (🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥) because it was so hot! I don’t want to give anything else away, so I will wrap up with saying that if you like captive romance series, this is one you have to read. It really was great.
