* I was provided with an ARC in exchange for an honest review.*
An honest review is what you’re going to get because, wow, I can’t even with this book. Sorry, let me take a minute to collect my thoughts here. I thought I already did that after I finished, but as I sit here ready to write this review, I’m conflicted all over again. I think I might wake up with a hangover because I’m still not ready to move on. I’m distraught. And, not because it’s a bad book. No, no, not at all. I am distraught because it’s over and I want more. I’m not finished with Mia, Creed and Noah. I’m not ready to accept the fact that she made a choice. Is it a bad choice, you ask? No, not necessarily, but one that I don’t think I was ready for her to make. Not yet, anyways.
If you haven’t read Road to Nowhere (book, 1), then you need to go and do that now! Go, run! If you have read Road to Nowhere, then know that Ends Here starts off where the first book ends. There’s no time in between. You are taken back to where Creed finds out that Mia is not in that basement. Where the f*ck did she go then? Who the hell took her? Did she leave on her own because she was scared? No, why the hell would she do that? All questions I asked when I finished Road to Nowhere, and then my questions were answered pretty quick because it jumps right into it. By 34% into the book, I was on the edge of my seat, screaming at my Kindle.
The battle between the brothers is something I still can’t handle. The testosterone between the two was through the roof, that I could feel it all around me. Brother’s aside, there were so many twists and turns, I thought I was going to be sick. Not really, but I was actually overwhelmed by some of the events that took place. During one scene I was laying in bed and then all of a sudden I’m on my knees with the Kindle on my bed. My hands covering my mouth because I was so shocked at what I was reading. So emotional, so heart-wrenching, I was bawling my eyes out.
I’m not even going to say anything more on the plot. If you loved Road to Nowhere, then you will love this one even more. There’s so much that comes to light and it all comes together in the end. So much happens in this book, but don’t let that deter you, because it’s written so damn well. Everything flows together so nicely. The different perspectives line up perfectly and you’re never wondering what’s going on. Questions you might have had are answered and theories are either broken or all make sense.
I’m so impressed with these two books, they broke the number one spot for favourite MC dualogy. I’m also new to M. Robinson and her books, so I think I’ll definitely be picking up her others, because I just love the way she writes. I hear her other male characters are also badass, alpha males, and that’s my favourite type of male, so expect more reviews by M. Robinson, from me in the future.
Like the first book, this is not intended for younger readers. There is quite a bit of violence and sexual content throughout then entire book. Definitely not suitable for anyone under the age of eighteen.
