This third installment felt more rushed to me. On the plus side, the book still made me smile…almost throughout. Its such a sexy book! I loved the John and Mary scenes…with that dress and the clamps, in the bath…wowza! I can vividly picture John with his scars and his brooding, tortured sweet self.
After reading all three installments I can finally say that the story centers on Mary and her journey to sexual empowerment. At least that’s what it was to me. It was a bit hard in the beginning to understand where the story was going with all the breaks in the book. Sometimes a steamy book is just that but this came with a set of characters readers are bound to love and of course steamy steamy scenes.
I think if it was a complete novel, un-rushed and probably a bit more fleshed out, I would give it 5 stars. Its sweet, its funny, its sexy, yup, I enjoyed it. However, due to the breaking down of the story and the rushed pace, I’ll give it 4 stars.
I totally see it as a TV show though, with these fun characters…and I smell a spinoff featuring Lille 🙂
Finally, I would like to thank Edelweiss and Simon&Schuster for providing this ARC for my honest review.
