I have a love hate relationship with Kristen Ashley and her books. First she follows a pattern strong alpha male and strong female lead fall happily in love and run into the sunset. Under normal situations, this crap ticks me off, but when it comes to Kristen Ashley and her books, the send me into an out of control spiral of obsession. I got off the wagon because I need to you know… eat & sleep.
I told myself I was quitting Kristen Ashley, but I got on goodreads and read a review for a book in this series and I decided just one more book, it won’t hurt.
And oh my god, I am right back in the window of obsession. It is like my obsession with Eddie Chavez all over again.
