So happy this one continues the winning streak of the Defiance series by Stephanie Tyler. I was looking forward to it but at the same time concerned that my luck would run out and something wouldn’t make me happy… Should have known better… 🙂
Luna is taking a huge risk heading out to Keller’s compound to see Bishop. She doesn’t truly understand the full risk when she heads out all she knows is she has to be with him. She’s been thru so much in her life and even though she pushed him away as much as she could in order to keep the safety of herself and Rebel she just can’t escape what Bishop meant to her. She makes the mistake of getting in to something that truly is deeper than she could ever know but she also brings a light in the dark to Bishop and what they build because of this was amazing to read. I liked her willingness to trust in a man she really didn’t know but I especially loved that she wasn’t stupidly following something just to be included and safe. She’s stronger than she realizes but watching her melt for Bishop made me smile. I think she’ll go far in this new arrangement but only if she has the man who really sees her behind her catching her when she needs it.
Bishop…. sigh… I knew I’d love reading your story. You are such a smart man even when you cross lines to save/protect those you love. He’s a lot smarter than people make him out to be and even when getting what to outsiders is a cushy position his mind never stops working. He always keeps an eye out for the story behind the scenes and has an uncanny way of reading people. I love your willingness to give Luna the illusion of control in order to put her at ease but when needed to push her to do what needed to be done in order to keep her safe. You don’t completely hide things from her but you also gave her the chance to see things on her own which gives her so much more confidence and the power she needs to feel free. You are sexy and hot but so giving it was beautiful to watch.
I can’t wait for more of this series and please tell me… Declan and Rebel are next?? Huh Huh Huh.. Come on Stephanie or Angela.. you know you want to accidentally send the next one to me… 😉 Oh and be prepared for a bit of stalking since I know Angela will be at RT with me.. *snicker*
