WOW! I honestly didn't think I could love this story or all of these characters any more... but here we are! R.A has once again delivered a phenomenal read, and this story just keeps getting better and better!


These characters are written to perfection. Each of them are so layered with such distinct and unique identities, filled with so much pain and suffering it's so nice to see more of each of their back stories in this one. I literally love them all so much, it's rare for me but I actually cannot pick a favourite.


I don't want to say too much because there are some amazing twists and turns and I don't want to spoil anything, but I promise it's worth going into these stories relatively blind, the anticipation will have you on the edge of your seat. Rachel has knocked it out of the park, the writing was amazing, the switch between POVs was done to perfection, and the story was totally addictive.

This is my favourite book in the Black Creek series so far, filled with heart-stopping action, drama, revenge, heartbreak, angst, love, and plenty of panty-melting steam. I am in desperate need of book 4... because that cliff-hanger!?!
