"Two Roads. Two choices. To let go? To give up? No. I would never – will never- give up."
Two Roads was different from the five books before it. It was more raw and emotional than full of dead bodies and bomb explosions.
After the craziness of the previous books. Juliette, Elliott, Jase as well as that one mysterious character from Three Years, are hiding out where no one can find them. Now that Dornan is gunning for them, they need to keep low for a little bit. At first, I thought I was going to miss the craziness from book five, but Two Roads had a different kind of craziness.
After having Dornan injecting her with heroin for the past few months Juliette has become the person she never wanted to be, an addict. Of course, she hides this from Jase. I wasn't too happy with her at this point and thought it would've been best to have Jase at her side as a support system rather than hiding what was going on.
I can honestly say this one was one of my favorites in the series. All the happy scenes between Jase and Juliette were heart-warming and exactly what I was waiting for this whole time. But not everything were laughs and cuddles. A great tragedy occurs and we finally see these characters in a more vulnerable light. Their hearts may have been shattered, but they picked those pieces back up and are now even more willing to seek revenge on Dornan.
Overall, I really enjoyed this part of the serial. Like I have mentioned before, it was definitely one of my favorites so far. I cannot wait to see Dornan meet his end, as bad as that sounds, but after everything he has done to these characters, he deserves it. The characters go through hell and make and it just made them grow and become stronger. I can't wait to see how this story concludes.
“I won’t stop, until they are all dead, until it’s all done, until I wipe Dornan Ross from the face off this earth.”

Two Roads was the calm before the storm. This was the most mellow book of the series and even though there was little drama involving Dornan, there was lots of character growth from Juliette and at this point it was something I very much needed.
After the living hell of the last few months, Jase and Elliot are watching over Juliette and trying to get her back on her feet. Again, this installment focused on character development and I liked both Elliot and Jase more in this book. They really proved how much they both loved Juliette and she is really lucky to have both men in her life.
Juliette had a bit of a breakdown after being held captive by Dornan but I felt she kinda needed it. Up until this point, I felt she took everything in her stride and the fact she had to get close to Dornan to complete her revenge didn’t seem to bother her. I often asked myself through the other books, how she could do what she did. So in this book, when she finally lost control and admitted how everything had affected her, I didn’t feel it fully justified her actions but I felt I could understand her reasons a bit more.
“I explain these details to Jase, through my tears, feeling like the biggest whore in the entire world for even having to explain in the first place. God, what have I become in the name of vengeance? I am so utterly, utterly ashamed.”
Both Juliette and Jase had highs and lows in this book. It was hard to see Juliette struggle with her drug dependency (I hated Dornan for doing that to her) I also hated that she hid it from Jase. When he eventually did find out, he proved his worth again by being there for her. When they were experiencing their highs, I was experiencing it right along with them.
“And for these moments, it’s just us, just Jason and Juliette, two people who’ve fought through every shitty thing to get to this moment. And it’s beautiful.”
But unfortunately, they experienced some lows as well and this was a really emotional part of their journey. I thought this was well written and this is fast becoming one of my favourite serials. The only good thing to come from their sadness was the old Juliette appeared and her hate for Dornan was renewed and rejuvenated. I have never wanted a fictional character to die more than I do Dornan Ross. He better meet his maker in the final book, or I believe there will be lots of unhappy fans on the rampage ;-)
As I mentioned at the beginning, Two Roads wasn’t as fast paced and high energy as the previous books but everyone needed to recuperate and recharge. Juliette and Jase are in fighting condition once again and with the mini cliffhanger of an ending, Dornan Ross is up to no good again so I really can’t wait to see how this all ends.
I am really enjoying this series from Lili. I have been entertained and surprised throughout each book. And I am crossing my fingers that we get a really explosive ending.
If you haven’t read this series then I suggest you start now. If you like your romance a little twisted then you need to read this today.

“Two Roads. Two choices. To let go?.......To give up? No, I would never – will never – give up”
Two Roads (Gypsy Brothers #6) by Lili St. Germain is the penultimate book of the series, and oh wow!! Did I want to read this one? I was expecting that like the last one it was going to be crazy, completely fucked up, with more twist and turns. However, I had heard from friends who had read it before me that it was different, so I didn’t know what to expect.
I have to say now that I have finished I would agree it was different. Whilst I was reading it, I was waiting for something to happen, but I soon realize this was the calm before the storm. The feel of the story was different, maybe not as action packed, but that being said, it didn’t lessen the intensity of it. The emotions were there, but also different. It was a surprise, but it worked well, I like that Lili St. Germain did it this way.
We get to see Juliette is trying to cope after what happen to her at the hands of Dornan. She's a strong character, a fighter, but at times it’s hard for her, and my heart went out to her.
"I've left one prison, the one Dornan constructed for me, only to be trapped in one of my own making. The one in my mind that goes over and over and over again."
Everything is becoming clearer as she discovers Jason, Elliott, and Luis true involvement in what has been happening. There is the fear of the unknown. As we all know that the crazy psychopath and monster that is Dornan is not dead! But Jason is at her side, and there is hope for them both, but also sadness. It’s still not an easy road for them. They have been through so much, and his love for her is unconditional.
“I need this man like I need air to breathe”
“You’re like a miracle! You survived death. I thought you were dead for six fucking years! Do you have any idea what that does to a person? Do you think anything you could ever do would stop me from loving you?”
Like the previous books, the ending was intense. There was a twist that I didn’t see coming; it made for great reading. It sets the scene for the last showdown, and left me with no doubt that anything can happen in the final book in the series. I expect it’s going to have me nervously biting on my fingernails until I swipe the last page. I can’t wait to see how it all ends for Jules & Jason, but I know how I want it to end for Dornan!!!
“Dornan Ross is not a man who will die easily.”
All I can say is this book, like the rest of the Gypsy Brothers series is a must read!! Lili St. Germain amazing storytelling and I love that she leaves me wanting more at the end of each novella. If you haven’t read it then, I would highly recommend that you 1- click the series now. If twisted dark romance stories are your thing then, you won’t be disappointed. I love what Lili St. Germain has done so far with this series.
Lili writes dark erotica and NA. Her debut serial novel, Seven Sons, was released in early 2014, with the remaining books in the series to release in quick succession. Lili quit corporate life to focus on writing and so far is loving every minute of it. Her other loves in life include her gorgeous husband, good coffee, hanging at the beach and running. She loves to read almost as much as she loves to write.
