Review by Poo Penny



This is how I felt when I was reading this book. Constantly. CONSTANTLY. Seriously. There was promise of so much, and there was just a lot of let down. The romanticized relationship between Gabriel and Avery was so weird, like, for starters, he BOUGHT her. Maybe like, a year ago I would have felt different, because tastes change. But as of right now, I was really hoping that Avery would at least try to take down part of his organization or something. It seems like maybe he’s not such a bad guy, but sometimes he’s just too much.’’

ALSO, NO CONDOMS. I hate this so much in modern settings. Y’all stupid as shit characters. Like, for serious, you want children already? You want STIs? You don’t even know this man and he apparently pays for strange women, and you are ok with not using protection. Even if I can get over that you are already in love with him, you should at least be asking for condom use. It’s not offensive to say, let’s be SAFE. Unless it is, man am I glad I am not dating. Ugh to all of that.

Well, I know I’ll be asking the library to grab the last book, because at this point I’m flippin’ invested, and I need to know what happens. I have no expectations, so hopefully it’s better than this one.

Grade: 2 stars

About the book

The power of pleasure…
Gabriel Miller took everything from me. My family. My innocence. My home. The only thing I have left is the determination to get back what’s mine.
He thinks he’s beaten me. He thinks he’s won. What he doesn’t realize is that every pawn has the chance to become a queen.
And the game has only just begun.
