Thank you to NetGalley and the Montlake Romance for the ARC of this book The review below is entirely my own opinion.While the step sibling trope is not my normal cup of tea, I clicked on this when I saw it available on NetGalley because I just really like the way Sariah Wilson tells a story Something about the way she writes pulls me right in This book deals with than just Bash and Ember s complex relationship It touches on topics like depression and substance abuse with sensitivity, compassion, and respect I loved that.There s also enough humor and sweet swoony moments to satisfy my HEA loving heart Plus, some of my favorite characters from book 1 make an appearance too This a well written, balanced story that I think fans of Ms Wilson s previous books will be pleased I certainly really liked it It s always a good day when a new Sariah Wilson book comes out I absolutely love her writing style, her intense yet still clean romances, the depth she puts into her characterization, and the fun comedic relief that many of her characters contribute to the story so many times I caught myself literally laughing out loud This book was no different and kept me reading way late into the night I loved Ember and Bash as protagonists They both had some really great qualities in them loyalty, protectiveness, lovers of food, outgoing, to name a few that made them both likable and relatable Their story was unique and had so much romantic tension throughout it I loved that both Ember and Bash had things about themselves to work on neither of them were perfect There were lots of supporting characters and situations that also added depth to the story Each chapter began with either Ember or Bash s perspective, written in first person, which I loved It helped you to really get inside each of their heads and understand them as characters and what they were dealing with There was a really good balance to their voices too, not too much of one or the other s perspective This book is second in the End Of the Line EOL series, and although I definitely recommend reading them in order you don t have to I think you enjoy this book a lot after reading the first I loved seeing previous characters from the first book in this one, and some side characters as well I hope there are to come I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. When these two were first together they were high school sweethearts but then their live turned to a forbidden live since their parents got married Things had to change between the two and it wasn t easy for either of them These two have to navigate their lives differently with each other and boy do they go through hell This book is entertaining A low level of heat romance with a great story I would recommend to any romance reader I was given a free advanced copy of this book by Net Galley in exchange for my honest and voluntary review.
