A crazy ride to the end!
Though this was the only book I hadn’t read previously, I did read Taken from start to finish because the story was that good and I wanted to be refreshed on the whole series. I loved every minute of it. There was so much intrigue and action and super steamy moments. Silver Lining was much better than most final books in a trilogy or series.
Much more happens in this book than in many ending books. Elijah and Holly get into more than one very sticky situation in this book and I was on the edge of my seat through much of this book. It wasn’t just a quick jaunt to the happily ever after like many last books in a series.
I am not going to give away the plot for this book, but I will say that I just love the dynamic between Holly and Elijah. They come from completely different worlds (Elijah was terribly abused by his alcoholic father until he ran away at 14 and lived on the streets and then joined the military as soon as he was able, while Holly came from an upper middle class background and traveled the world with her family at a young age). Yet they both became strong people that can handle whatever is thrown at them.
The chemistry between Elijah and Holly was sizzling hot and the supporting characters were absolutely terrific. I grew to like Adam as the story went on despite the fact that he kidnapped Holly and held her and Elijah in a dingy prison in the beginning. I also ended up liking Holly’s flaky sister London after she cleaned up her act. Elijah’s brothers Liam and Joshua were great as well and they each had their own issues stemming from their childhood like Elijah.
I voluntarily read & reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts & opinions are my own.
