Alright, so I should begin this with I didn't read the first two books so I can say whether or not there was previous info to the story that would've helped along. I'm going to be honest and say this book was not up my alley. It has nothing to do with the plot of the book because I ventured out of my norm and was fine with that. The explicit scenes, not my thing. I could've did without the here there and everywhere but that isn't a reflection of the book just a personal preference in my comfort level of reading. Something great was the close knit aspect of the relationships within the characters. That is always a great experience reading. Those traits of sticking together always puts you close to the characters. It would've been great for resolution in the end. It leaves you feeling like a puzzle piece is missing. That would've redeemed things majorly for me. Overall, the plot of the book was interesting minus the other stuff. Just wish there was more details about certain aspects of the story. I'm on the fence if there is another book to continue but are very curious to see what happens.
