Summary:

“Enoch is tested.

His brother is human, the thing he hates. He watches as the brother he knew is stripped away by his love for Clara. He’s never hated someone as much as he hated her…but the bond forced him to not only want to protect her, but feel things he never had before.

When a girl needs his help, that split second decision changes his whole world in one instant.

A Devourer’s Fate…”

My Review:

WOW!!!  Shelly stepped up her game in this book.  It was so much better than the 1st two books put together.  I loved the characters in this book.  It is about Eli’s brother Enoch instead of Clara and Eli.  However, the couple are in this book as well.  Especially since Enoch’s love interest is Clara’s sister. ~GASP~   But I feel as if the writing of the characters in this third and final installment is so much better.

At the end of the second book (Consume), I really thought that Enoch could possibly have feelings for Clara, due to his anger towards Eli and Clara as a couple.  I was so wrong!  Or should I say he DID have feelings, but not what I was thinking.  He absolutely HATED her for taking his brother from his true nature as a Devourer.  Enoch blames Clara but Eli was changed before he even met Clara.  But I think Enoch just had to have someone else to blame besides his brother.

As for Fay, Clara’s sister, I positively love her!!!  Her attitude and outlook on the whole Devourer world is amazing.  It seems as if her personality in the 1st two books was more of an exception than the norm.

Enoch and Clara’s relationship kept me guessing.  Will they or won’t they give in to their feelings?  But the story and flow didn’t get me frustrated.  It made sense through out.

So my recommendation is to read the whole series because Book 3 is a definite must read!!!

Summary:

“Emma knows better than most that life can change from one second to the next. Mason knows that guilt can make you change so much, that you don’t even recognize yourself in the mirror. When they found each other, they knew that life had given them a second chance.
But can one night, one second, one misunderstanding change everything?

A life together that saved them will become a life they think is lost forever. “

My Review:

This is the 2nd book in this series.  You know how you read the first book in the series, you really aren’t very impressed, but you just HAVE TO read the next book to see what happens?  Yeah, that’s why I read this one.

So I’ll begin with SPOILER ALERTS-Emma and Mason are trying to start their lives together.  Emma’s parents are finally realizing the old Emma, pre-comma is never coming back.  Mason is the gallant boyfriend who wants to do things right, so what does he do, he asks Emma’s dad for her hand in marriage.  Awwwww…. But, the happily ever after doesn’t start there.  (if it did, the book would be over pretty fast).  Another part of the past creeps up, this time it’s Mason’s.  It puts an extreme strain on the relationship, but not in the usual way.  A girl Mason had dated a long time ago, has a serious stalker crush on Mason that leads to….duh, duh, duh….Emma getting in a car accident.

I could go on, but all that will do is tell you the entire story.  So if you are interested, then check out the rest of the story.

Pros-I enjoyed the casual way Mason and Emma interact with each other.  As if they had been married for years, but with the spark of a new love.

Cons-I really can’t put my finger on it.  I just felt this book could have been more but it was just lacking something.  All through out it, I was waiting for it to get better.  The writing is ok, but the story seemed too strained.
