Cover Art: The background is shades of blue with a forlorn tattooed, pierced male. The title starts in a large font and changes to a flowing font. The author’s name is easy to read in a white, bold font. It is a clean cover.
Synopsis: The synopsis matches the story. There is a warning of distressing and mature themes plus the addition must be 18+ to read.
Plot: Two sides of the same coin, Ayden and Shaun both are looking out for their families. While Ayden has a loving family, Shaun is trying to look out after his. The story covers the positive and negative sides of Ayden and Shaun’s rollercoaster ride of a relationship.
Ayden – Privileged and the son of Lucca Rinaldi. He is from a close family.
Shaun aka Gripp – Possesses a darkness and in the drug realm. A tough hardass on first appearance.
Jake and Sophie are Ayden’s best friends
Lucca Rinaldi- A protective and loving father to Ayden
Stella- the classic stepmother
Charlie- Shaun runs drugs for him as his top runner.
Flow/Continuity: There are no breaks in the story. As a fact, the story jumps in from the start. It does not ease into the storyline. The sex scenes fit where they are in the story.
Conflict & Climax: There are many intertwined relationships. While Ayden and Shaun are trying to make their relationship work, others are inserting their opinions and views.
Editing/Formatting: The chapter headings are based on who is speaking at the time.
Priced: The current price is affordable and is more than worth it.
Conclusion: This is book 2 in the series but it can be read as a standalone. Book 1 does however give more insight into the characters. It is a very good story and I like the playlist. I hope this is someday released as a box set. My only downside for the series is that I have not read the series up to this book. Even with character descriptions, I feel I missed out not reading them in order.
Series: Taylor book 0.5 The Razer Series, Calling Time book 1 The Razer Series, Ryder book 1.5
Next in the series is Stella book 2.5
