Series: Deliver us From Evil #3
My Rating: ★★★
What a conclusion to an amazing story of love, betrayal, violence, repentance, and forgiveness.
I’ve been putting off writing this review because I once again find myself in the minority with this conclusion. I have to say this book didn’t do it for me as the first two books did. For me, it probably would have worked as a duet.
Having said that, there is no doubt that Monica has some serious wiring chops. But over the years I have to come to accept that not every book is for everybody, and unfortunately, I just wasn’t the target audience for this book.
I found this Punky different from the Punky from books one and two. He was inconsistent in his conviction, almost wishy washy. He was ruthless one minute, very strong in his declaration (if not too much) for blood and revenge one minute, then the next minute he was having meetings and waiting to sail off into the sunset for a boring life.
The chemistry between the two was not convincing to me. I don’t feel like they spent time nurturing their relationship enough for this to be a romance novel to be fair. It was just full of revenge plots and drama, that I sometimes found unnecessary.
After a while it became a bit predictable. Punky would think he has a plan that would work, someone will betray him, scuppering his plans. He sets out another plan, someone sabotages that plan. Rinse and repeat.
While the story was engaging enough to keep you turning the pages, for me it was the best work from this author.
