Review:

This sophomore book in the series redeems the series for me enough to make me want to read the third book. I wasn’t sure after what felt like gratuitous violence in the first one. The focus of this book was on Pearl and Crow’s relationship and that is really what draws the reader in. It’s a nuanced relationship and the sex is 🔥🔥🔥🔥. That is not to say that it isn’t dark and violent at times but certainly not to the brutal extent of book 1. This second book made me want to root for their relationship. Next up: Buttons and Pain. –

Sex/kink type: hetero, penetrative, oral, anal, BDSM, role reversal –

Possible triggers: human trafficking, physical abuse, violence, misogyny –
