Three months after Sage Hannigan time warps a hundred years into the past and saves the future, she is still trying to come to grips with all the she has gained… and all that she has lost.
All of her searching hasn't turned up the Cerberus Society or any creatures of the night, and she's beginning to wonder if she's gone crazy after all. The only things keeping her grounded are her sparring sessions with Matt and her weekly ritual of scouring the city for lowlifes to kick the crap out of, and even that can't keep her dreams free of the heartache and bittersweet memories she has come to loathe and… to cherish.
When blasts from the past—good, bad, and evil—come knocking on her door, will she be able to do what she has to even if it means having her barely healing heart ripped to shreds?
“I don't want you to be happy for me, Sage."
His voice was rougher and closer than when he'd spoken before. I kept my eyes on my hands as they continued their relentless cleaning.
"I want you to need me like you did before. I want you burning up on the inside from desire. I want you to kiss me like you did that day on the beach, without a care, without reservation, and without anyone else claiming any of your affections. I want you to burn like I do.”
Anyway, this one was an easier read than the first. It was less awkward. Maybe because this one took place in more modern times? I don't know. But whatever the reason, I read through it pretty quickly.
There were a couple times I had to put the book down and tell it "no". I can't say what they are, because spoilers... but one of the times my heart was hurting so much, and I had tears... and it was just really sad. The other time, I was actually really angry. Yes, this book made me so angry that I had tears over it. I do love a book that makes me emotional...
It is incredibly hard for me to put to words how I felt about this book. And I'm writing this now, instead of starting book 3, because Maribel said she emailed me the loan - but my email account says otherwise. So I'm wasting time waiting for amazon to give me the book to read!
I did feel a bit ashamed of myself while reading this book. I started judging Sage for something, and I realized that I was being incredibly judgmental. I had a long talk with myself, because I do what I want, about certain aspects of Sage. Did I have issues with her strictly because she's a woman? Was I judging her because of who I am, and thinking that people should all be up to my standards? And I came to the conclusion that I was slut-shaming, and I am a horrible person.
Back to the story... just... I can't even word a lot of how I felt. I was so frustrated during a lot of this, because Sage wasn't giving into my whims. There was much more backstory on Aldwin, which pleased me because I am #TeamAldwin. Soren pissed me off multiple times. Yeah, he did some great stuff - but he was a selfish buttface. I'm not in support of him and Sage being a thing.
In conclusion, this was a much more emotional read than the first book. There's much more going on here as well. Also, there's one hell of a love triangle. I cannot remember the last time a book made me this angry, so props for that as well.
