“Gabriel wont touch what is mine. Make no mistake, Jolie. No matter how many years or how much distance you put between us, you were and always will be, mine”.
So, we start where we left off with Jolie and Shanes story in this third book of their trilogy. So let’s get to it.
Shane is still pissed off with Jolie but his anger is not as intense as it was in book 2. I suspect its because hes finally come up with a plan for revenge. If you’ve read the first 3 books, you’d know Shane is a ruthless, bone fide mafia captain. So when he speaks of revenge I expect its going to be some violent act of revenge. Actually, at some point I was convinced he was going to send her back to the Johnson’s. But no, that’s not it, but well get to that later.
Jolie, Jolie, Jolie. Listen I get it. She feels really guilty and all that shit and wants to appease Shane so she lets him get away with some fucked up shit. At some point I was getting tired of it. I thought
I get that Shane is upset, feels betrayed and all that. But really? She was just a spectator in her own life and it really started to piss me off. At some point she was just plain ridiculous. Do y’all remember that she’s sworn up and down that she didn’t want Sean walking in Shane’s life? Apparently, all it took for her to change her mind was some idiot making a comment that they weren’t scared of him!

In that moment, Shane became
Who does that? What kind of revenge is that? Seriously, that was a
but ofcourse he doesn’t see anything wrong with that. His main objective s to inflict maximum pain on Jolie, consequences be damned
Oh poor Jodie but finally she gets her shit together and when she finally stood up to Shame in that restaurant I was like
finally, she grew some lady balls and honey let me just say, them bitches were hanging low with all that bad-assery. Apparently, that what Shane needed to get his head out of his ass.
I must admit towards the end, I fell in love with Shane, when Jolie finally put her cards on the table and Shane finally admitted he loves her, this was me
Do yourself a favour and read this series. This is a 5* read although I knocked half a star off because of Jolie and Shane’s back and forth got to me. I couldn’t take it much longer. Hands down one of the best reads of 2020 so far.
“I can’t…I…I can breathe when you’re not here”.
“I’m scared. I swear Jo, if you leave me, I don’t think I can survive it again”.
