Review

I received an ARC of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review and as part of the book’s blog tour promotions.

This book is a quick and short read. I enjoyed it, like I always enjoy every book from Katee Robert. I always find her stories entertaining, and they always leave me with a feel-good feeling. Her characters are always very likeable. I also love that her books are equal parts sweet and steamy.

I’m not sure how many books I was able to read from this series, but I know that the first book I tried out in the Out Of Uniform series was a hit for me, so I followed the series from there. His To Take may be a short novella, but it will still definitely give you a complete and satisfying story of two main characters that any reader will root for even from the very beginning.

If you’ve read anything from Ms. Robert, then you shouldn’t miss this novella. Moreover, if you’ve read anything from this series, then you really have to check this book as well. To be honest, His To Take may not actually make it to my list of best reads this year, but it is still a book I won’t mind re-reading in the future.

I remember binge reading the Gypsy Brothers series. For the longest time, I tried putting it off. The series sat in my Kindle for a long time because I got too afraid to read it. The thing was, I like dark stories. But I wanted them as standalones, or as duologies at most. I didn’t want to be too invested to read an entire serial like the Gypsy Brothers was, and I had seven books to read. However, the moment I started Seven Sons, I knew I wouldn’t be able to stop until I got to the very end.

Zero Hour is now Jace and Juliette’s story. This is how their life became after Dornan died. Of course, they were all still on the run, being chased by the MC and the cartel, not being able to trust many people. Most of all, they had their own trauma to live through. It seemed like Dornan was still ruling over all of them even from the grave. Dornan’s character has always been dark and compelling. I liked him at times, but I absolutely hated him too. I think I was just like Juliette who loved Dornan before he did what he did to her.

Jace and Juliette both have long to go before they can go back to normal, and at this point, I don’t think they will ever be normal at all. I definitely loved this conclusion to the series. I don’t know if I have a favorite among the eight installments. It feels like they all come together as one explosive story in one very long book. If you followed the Gypsy Brothers at all, you should certainly get this book. This is the best ending I could ever think of for Jason and Juliette.

Excerpt

I don’t even stop to see what kind of furniture the room consists of. I throw Juliette on the floor and pounce on her like I’m a lion and she’s my catch.

My dick’s inside her within three seconds of the door closing, even though its dark in here, the only light from a couple of candles throwing off weak light. It could be the middle of the day and I wouldn’t have a clue, because all I can see is Juliette Portland underneath me, her legs spread and her pussy full of me. I put my hands around her neck. I want to squeeze. I want to choke her so fucking badly. Goddamn it! I stop grinding my cock into her. I just stop.

“I don’t want to hurt you,” I whisper in the dark. “Julz, the things I used to do in this place—I used to hurt people and get off on it. I don’t want to hurt you, baby.”

She reaches up and grabs hold of my face; I can just make out her eyes, her pupils almost swallowing any trace of green.

“Jase,” she breathes, “What if I want you to hurt me?”

I believe I’ve read every single book in this series. This series was my first book from Samantha Chase, and it made me a huge fan. I love contemporary romance novels, and her brand of romance is something that works so well with me. Her heroes and heroines aren’t dark characters, but they are complicated enough to make the books intresting. I liked William Montgomery and his knack for matchmaking, which all ended up successfully.

When Zach’s character was introduced and his love story with Gabriela was teased in the previous book, I didn’t become a fan of him. I found him too uptight and controlling. Even his sister found him uptight and controlling. That’s the same Zach we see in this book. He was an ass for the most part of the book. He may have won the girl in the end, but I felt like the heroine was the one who always gave in and understood him.

I liked Gabriela, but I also couldn’t find anything about her that stood out. I didn’t really understand her conflict with her family. Were they the ones at fault? Or was she the one who was always putting a wall between them? And that brother-in-law aspect, I wish he couldn’t have had a more tragic ending. I mean, that man was just bad news. All in all, I truly enjoyed this book. It just wasn’t my favorite in the series. If you’ve read the previous books, you wouldn’t want to miss Zach’s story. Personally, I still love William’s brood better than his brother’s.

Review

Second chance romance. Now here’s another trope that I absolutely love, aside from the friends-to-lovers theme. We are now in the fourth book of the Wild Boys After Dark series. I must say that I was initially intrigued by this series because this is probably the first racier books from Melissa Foster. Knowing her, I knew that the series would be a hit, and that I’d at least like them. I didn’t think I’d love all four books, which is, of course, a great thing because it solidified the author’s brand. I mean, she’s not just here for your sweet, new adult contemporary romance. She can write the steamier stuff too.

Cooper’s book was, for me, the most emotional. Maybe it’s personal because I always get emotionally involved when there is a child involved in the love story. I loved Logan and his alpha-ness. I adored Heath and his sexy intelligence. I enjoyed Jackson and his nonchalance. Now, with Cooper, I have to say that he’s also a great hero too. And of course, I always have a thing for the artistic souls.

This is the best way to end the series. I mean, no offense to the other three brothers, but I really believe that from the first book up to now, Ms. Foster has escalated the emotional attachment that readers get with her characters. When Logan had his book, we were ll still getting to know them. He was a perfect first book because he was too male and too alpha to grab any readers attention and make them want to continue with the series. Heath and Jackson’s book were meant to significantly tighten the pull that the series has to the readers. Until finally, with this book, it is an explosion of everything that was good about this series. Once again, Ms. Foster delivers, and I’m so glad I got to read this entire series.

Review

So, this review is quite difficult for me to write because I am torn between loving this book and just “liking” it. I know there shouldn’t be any middle ground, but I can’t help it. Let me start first with the fact that I love the friends-to-lovers trope. I could read as many books with the friends-to-lovers theme and still not get bored with all the variations that can happen to the stories. Aside from that, I also love Melissa Foster’s books. Those two facts alone should guarantee that I love this book, right?

Here’s the part that makes me hesitant: I couldn’t get a lock on the relationship between the heroine and her supposedly “boyfriend”. I am sure that he is a nice, almost perfect guy and all, but I couldn’t reconcile the fact that he’d let his woman, one he asked to marry, go on her annual camping trip with the hero, one he knows has a complicated relationship with her. Okay, maybe that was a good thing because it just showed that he and the heroine weren’t right for each other and that the real conflict was between the main characters and their push and pull kind of relationship. That’s the only thing I wasn’t completely down with in this book.

However, everything else was great, as always. I think Jackson is probably the wildest out of the Wild brothers. Then again, I still have a fourth book to read. Well, I think that aside from the weird relationship that the heroine had with the men in her life, this book was hot, a little kinky, and still a lot sweet. Therefore, I guess I should say that I am happy, and I loved it. I am excited for the fourth book, and I’m already wishing there are more installments. Maybe a novella that would feature all Wild boys with the HEAs or something. Oh well, one can only hope.
