Santiago finally has what he wants. His baby is growing inside me.
I’ve rewritten her destiny, binding her to me for good.
Things are changing for us. I see beyond the monster he shows the world. See the scars he hides beneath the ink.
Love is a weakness men like me can’t afford. I’ve decided to keep her, but I’ll never forfeit my revenge.
His final betrayal proves his vengeance means more to him than our love.
I will have my pound of flesh, no matter the cost.
I made a mistake trusting him. I forgot how much he likes my tears.
When I am through, I’ll have what I thought I always needed.
I’ll run from him. I’ll have to.
I’ll bring her back when she runs. I’ll always bring her back. She belongs with me.
But it’s too late when I realize he’s not the only monster in my world. And that mistake will cost us both dearly.
Series: The Society Trilogy #3
My Rating: ★★★★
An epic conclusion to what has been the best trilogy so far in 2021. A trilogy that isn’t a trilogy just for the sake of being a trilogy. There was a story, a purpose, enough drama and what-the-fuckery that justified each book; and I was here for it.
What a thrill it is to see a hard man finally brought to heel by a small woman with nothing but the power of love. This was no different with Santiago. He has come a long way and battled with betrayal, self-loathing and an unquenchable thirst for revenge. With his wife as the tool with which he intended to exert his revenge; he was never prepared for the implication the soft touch of his woman would have on his plans.
We pick up where we left off in the Reparation of Sin. Santiago is losing his mind without his wife, searching the highs and lows of the underbelly of the dark world for her. He finally accepts that she is now more than just a revenge tool. Her strength, her vulnerability is endearing and makes her relatable to the reader.
I loved every minute of this book. The twist and turns, the betrayals, the redemption, forgiveness that will have you thinking they’re ready to walk off into the sunset, but you know that’s too good to be true. Too easy and too straightforward. So you’re kept in a constant state of hope and anticipation that the other shoe is about to drop. And boy does it drop. I loved Santiago then. The vulnerability he showed, the fear, the emotional growth that he showed when shit hit the fan was amazing to witness from the man he was in book one.
UGGG! I was rooting for them the throughout this trology. I am praying that these two intend on writing Mercedes and Judge’s story. I mean why wouldn’t they? No really. Anyway, the constant pull and push, two steps forward and ten steps back, song and dance they did throughout the story was life. Even though they were infuriating sometimes. Still, Santi is BAE.
