*I received an ARC in exchange for my honest review
In this second part of the serial, more information related to Alyssa's death comes to the surface and more suspects get added to my long list.
I really enjoyed this installment since we find out just a little more about, well, everything. For starters, more details of Kate's past resurface making me think that the killer might be someone from her past and Kate is his next victim.
We also take a closer look at Jaxon's BDSM club. When they stepped into Benediction, a sexier side of Jaxon came out and Kate explored the Dom/Sub relationship she has with Jaxon. Not only did we find more clues to Alyssa's case, but we also get to see Jaxon and Kate in action and explore their sizzling connection further.
Nick was one of my favorite characters in part one of this serial. You can even say I liked him a little more than Jaxon. Unfortunately, my view of him changes in this one. He is still just as protective of Kate, but there is something about him that I can't put my finger on.
I love that the story got even more suspenseful than the first and that I'm not quite sure who the killer might be. Kate stumbles upon another case that might just be related to the Alyssa's, so the killer at this point could be anyone. I also can't wait to see what happens between Nick, Jaxon, and Kate!
I'm really enjoying this serial. It's a perfect mix of love, lust, and suspense. Can't wait to read part three!
*I received an ARC via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.*
The second part of this hot, fast-paced serial begins with Kate feeling lost and confused, she shared something special with Jaxon, only for him to flee abruptly from Kate’s embrace. To make matters worse, she received a threatening phone call from an anonymous caller, causing her boss Nick to worry about her safety, and involvement in Jaxon’s case.
Kate’s professional relationship with Nick begins to blur just as she deepens her involvement with Jaxon. Due to the fact I hate the barest hint of love triangles, Nick is immediately on my bad list, I wish him to disappear, I can’t help it I’m #TeamJax ;-) . Jaxon is a man of few words, but what he lacks in the speech department he more that makes up for with his domineering presence. I’m starting to be wary of Nick as I can’t read his intentions and I’m not sure if he is looking out for his Jaxon and Kate’s best interests.
The case against Jaxon heats up, his in-laws are contesting the will and he is still very much a suspect in Alyssa’s murder. Kate is gathering clues all the while falling for Jaxon, which can be a very dangerous game.
“She had no doubt Jaxon would protect her from any physical danger. But who would guard her heart?”
In this instalment, more of Kate’s personality came out and I liked her sassy side as well as her vulnerable side. As much as she was weak at the knees for Jaxon, Kate made it clear that she wouldn’t be played for a fool.
“I know how safe I feel when I’m in your arms, and I trust you to honor my limits. But if you’re going to change your mind again or call me a mistake, you need to walk away now. Just because I don’t shed tears doesn’t mean I’m not crying inside.”
Her past was mentioned again, more puzzle pieces were released, whatever happened was tragic and life altering for Kate, my heart went out to her but at the same time I admired her strength and determination.
“You asked me if I’d been touched by violence. Yeah, I have. But it’s not the violence that haunts me. It’s what happens after.”
Jaxon and Kate finally visit Benediction to search for clues, and of course they manage to have a little bit of fun whilst they are there. ‘When in Rome’ as they say ;-) Jaxon came to life in his natural habitat and his possessive side took over. This was one side of him I liked to see.
“Have you ever had more than one man make love to you at the same time?”
Her pussy contracted at the thought. “No.”
“But you’re curious about it.”
“Yes,” she answered, before she could stop it.
“You’ll have to stay curious because I’ll never share you.”
I really enjoyed Greed; the suspense kicked up a notch, the heat level went through the roof and my mind was churning out numerous suspects. I loved the mix of mystery and lust. It’s a fast paced thriller with an ending that will leave you open mouthed and desperate for the next part. I’m loving this series and again I’ll dive straight in to number three!
