A FORBIDDEN LOVE WILL BECOME DEEPER.
A LOYALTY WILL BE TESTED.
AND ONLY DARKNESS WILL REMAIN.
One revelation changed everything, turning Eve Collin’s world upside down. Now, she’s left to struggle with her identity and allegiance. Haunted by grief and tempted by her increasing attraction to her protector, will she ever truly be safe from enemies that refuse to give up?
Restraint is an addictively spellbinding continuation of Eve’s journey of self-discovery, love and sacrifice that will change everything.
Readers captivated by Revelation will eagerly devour Restraint.
Before I read Revelation and Restraint, I read the excerpt above and let me tell you, it definitely got me hooked, especially after reading the last line. And now that I have read both books, I don’t know what to do with my life.
In Revelation, the title itself says it all. It’s all about revealing what everyone’s role is in the story, especially Eve’s. As I mentioned in my review for Revelation, the first book was more of a filler with the information, providing it so the reader wouldn’t be lost on the rest of the series. I also mentioned that I just had a feeling that Restraint would be action-packed and intense. I was right.
Restraint takes us on a whole other level of intensity. Holy mother of all that is sex…the sexual tension is off the roof. I just wanted them to do it right then and there so I could relax, but that wasn’t the case, sadly. I still love Asher. I will forever be Team Asher. Now I am in between Asher St. Michael and Daemon Black. Yes, girls, Asher is that good for me to have him close to Daemon Black.
In this sequel, the reader gets to experience new sides to the characters and how in depth they really are. Reading about Eve, her role, how her love for Asher is forbidden, Deacon, Lucifer wanting her, Gage (another hottie), had me going crazy with all the stuff that happens in this story. I was also laughing like I did in the first book. This is the first dark series I have read that has such a great humor and it is so fun to read.
I recommend this book to those that like the Lux series. It will not compare to the Lux series but it is a very close one. These two series have been the ones that have gotten me laughing one moment and getting upset the next with how intense and passionate it is.
“Sleep Over” – Ash and Eve
I’m brushing my teeth when Asher swaggers into the bathroom. He leans his hip against the counter and just watches me. It’s starting to freak me out. I squint at him before spitting.
“Can I help you?”
“Huh?” he asks.
“You’re staring.” I tip my toothbrush at him.
“Am I?” He tilts his head to the side and crosses his arms.
I spit one last time and start my flossing routine and gargle my mouth rinse, all while Asher just stands there, observing me. Seriously, what’s he doing?
“Curious about dental care?”
“Curious about you,” he shoots back.
He shrugs. “I like watching you do normal, everyday things.”
I blink. “Did you get clocked in training today?”
“No.” He slides his hands into the pockets of his pajama bottoms. “Want to have a sleep over?”
“Sleepover?” I repeat, less than enthused.
“Pajamas, pillow fights, gossip. You know, sleepover,” he clarifies, like I’m an idiot.
I sigh. “You’re freaking me out. What the hell is going on?”
He reaches for me and grabs the hem of my tank top, pulling me towards him. I stumble a bit and have to place my hands on his shoulders for balance as he tugs me closer. “I want you in my bed tonight. I was hoping you’d fall asleep in my arms.” His eyes lock onto mine.
