Beth and Wrath: I think we all knew coming into this book, we would see a mating between Beth and Wrath (‘Bath?’) that was going to go through a bumpy road. And I think pregnancy drama was expected. I enjoyed all of their interactions in this book. Wrath’s terror at the thought of Beth being pregnant.
“I need you to hear this,” he said in a dead voice, “and know that it’s the God’s honest. I will not service you in your needing. Ever.”
Now it was her turn to breathe out like she’d been socked in the gut. “I can’t….I can’t believe you just said that.”
“It is never, ever going to happen. I will never get you pregnant.”
Beth’s determination though wins – she sits with Layla for hours a day in hopes to kick start her needing. Keeping things from Wrath so he doesn’t know what she is doing. Wrath’s pure exhaustion with being King and all the crap that comes with it. All of this together – it worked really well for me. I loved their fighting. I loved their love making. Wrath getting advice from Tohr – the male who lost his mate and his unborn child. OH THE FEELS. Looking back I don’t have any complaints about these two. Maybe Beth’s pregnancy got bumped along a little too fast – but the book was 600 some pages so I guess we didn’t need every moment of her pregnancy. She has a son, Wrath jr or L.W (little wrath). And I have to say – I love a good needing phase. LOVE IT. I want a female to go into needing in every book. Favorite part of Beth and Wrath – when Wrath wakes up from being knocked out and Beth isn’t there and he goes into that total rage that demolishes the pool room. Zomg. Ward actually used the word ‘Couch-icopters” and “Wrath-Beth x Overnight = Psyco-hose Beast.” Love.
Assail and Sola: Bored me to tears. I could have cared less about these two. I’ve never connected with Assail in previous books and likewise Sola does nothing for me. I didn’t care about their story and they got sooooo much page time. I wish that page time had been spent checking in with Blay and Qhuinn or more with Xcor and Layla.
JM: Oh my adorable John Matthew. His seizures when he is around Beth are getting worse. He is getting flashes and words in the old language – all having to do with Darius although no one else has any idea why it’s happening. Love where this is going. I wonder if the root of these seizures will ever come out? Love seeing how strong his relationship is with Xhex and how much Wrath respects him.
Trez and Selena: This was the most surprising couple for me – I’ve never been a huge Trez or iAm fan but I really enjoyed their story in this one. I looooved Trez and Selena. Both of them. How dirty and messed up Trez is. How horny Selena is. Their passion, their torment.
His erection was ….just as incredible as the rest of him.
“Shut the goddamn door!” he hollered.
God I love them.
Selena’s sickness and Trez’s drama with the Shadow queen. Can’t wait to see how this plays out more. We also meet s’Ex (this name and the way it’s spelled makes me weep) . Odd fellow, yes? 7 feet tall, over 300 pounds. And I guess a sex god? I mean a s’Ex god? *weeps some more* Oh! And we learn iAm is a virgin. *bites lips*
Xcor and Layla: Oh these two give me the good dirty feels. I love, love, love them together. I love that Layla will pimp herself out to him to save Wrath. I lvoe that he allows this YET has real feelings for her too. It makes me bouncy. It feels a little dark for Ward and I approve of it. I want them to have their own book. Pop out that kid Layla and then make it happen with Xcor. Let’s go!
Saxton and the uprising:S Are you starting to feel like Saxton is getting deeper storylines and maybe his own book one day? I used to not like him but now I want him to find some love. Poor Sax! He needs to be set up on a date I think. Make this happen Ward. I liked his part in trying to stop the council from ousting Wrath too.
The end: I love how it all wrapped up. It was a little mushy with L.W. being born and Wrath becoming a King for his common people. Beth and Wrath having a civil ceremony with Elvis, I mean Lassiter officiating it. *giggle* It felt warm and gooey and I liked it.
What’s next? Whose book is next? Do we find out a her signing?? I need to know! What else happened in this book that you want to talk about? Overall – did we like?
