I am going to be re-posting some of my older blogs from when I began blogging with some edits and new comments.
Maria De La Torre is a survivor. Her life has not been paved with streets of gold…but with blood and sacrifice. She may have been there for her soul sister in the Trinity Trilogy but this story is about her life. The life she chooses. The same life someone from her past is trying to take away.
Elijah is the last man in the entire world Maria should be with. He’s a dark, gritty, lawless bounty hunter—the exact opposite of the man she loved and lost, the man who gave up everything for her. Only Elijah is not the type of guy to back down. He’s used to getting what he wants and he’s set his sights on the raven-haired seductress.
Time is not on Maria and Elijah’s side. There’s a new threat to the soul sister, one Maria never thought she’d have to face again. And this time, the stakes are life and death.
Maria quickly learns that the things she wants most in this lifetime may just be the things that have the power to destroy her.
My Review: 5 stars
WOW!! This book had me sucked in from the first minute!
Maria, who you have meet before in this series, is a strong, independent woman who has gone through some really hard times; losing loved ones, being a survivor of domestic violence, living in the foster care system. Maria has learned to depend on herself but after a tragedy, she meets the one man who could either help heal her or who could tear her apart.
Eli, who will have a connection to Maria she would have never guesses, is a hard working, dark, rough, handsome man. He is intimidating and persistent and always gets what he wants. But will he be able to get Maria or will her past resurface and kill all hope before it even begins?
I ABSOLUTELY loved Maria and Eli. This give and take between their characters was amazing. I loved how Maria always stood-up for herself and never let anyone get her down. Eli was to die for. His strong, alpha male ways were just what Maria needed, even if she didn’t realize it.
This book was wonderfully written. Audrey did an AMAZING job telling us about the characters from the last books during this one. I have not read the first three books but this can be read without reading them, you will still understand the story and won’t be lost. (But I am defiantly going back to read them) Audrey added the perfect amount of love, hate, happiness, sadness, pretty much any emotion you can have into this book. I was hooked from the first chapter.
