Series: Obsidian Brotherhood #1
My Rating: ★★★
This is my first book by this author. And I’m surprised at how much I enjoyed this secret society, rival families, anti-hero, innocent heroine romance.
We have Caspian Donahue son of one of the richest oil tycoons the USA has ever seen whose father is frenemies with Tatum Huntington’s father who is a US Senate. The families hate each other but these two have been drawn to each other since they were kids. Despite their familial differences, Caspian protects Tatum from all harm that she never even sees, much to both their parents’ dismay. Their fathers go out of their way to keep them apart, but Caspian is having none of it.
There was so much potential in this story. But honestly, I’m not sure why their fathers wanted them to be apart. It seemed like them being together would ruin something, I get what Tatum’s fathers plans were, but what did Caspian’s father have to gain from it?
There was a lot of the story happening off the pages. LORD DO I HATE IT WHEN THAT HAPPENS. Like when Caspian’s lawyer died, his reaction was just… well not there. He just swiftly moved on which is crazy considering he had his heart and plans set on that trust coming through. And that night at the lake, while I understand it was meant to build suspense, just wasn’t what I thought it would be.
I didn’t think the secret society of the story was successfully executed. Caspian’s bad-assery was just lacking to be fair. I don’t know. It wasn’t just needed it to be. I needed it be more. Darker, harder, sexier.
Nonetheless I enjoyed it enough and I can’t wait to Lyric’s story.
