    Ive protected you as best I can, and I will never forgive myself for what happened to you while you were mine.This series has turned into a broken, devastating love story, finallyI lost hope of redemption for Quinn and Tobias while reading Damaged, but Destroyed restored hope and brought redemption.The largest critique this series has received has been the amount of sexual violence it contains. The final installment, Destroyed, proves Omegas Destruction is not simply about an Omega enduring “I’ve protected you as best I can, and I will never forgive myself for what happened to you while you were mine.”This series has turned into a broken, devastating love story, finallyI lost hope of redemption for Quinn and Tobias while reading Damaged, but Destroyed restored hope and brought redemption.The largest critique this series has received has been the amount of sexual violence it contains. The final installment, Destroyed, proves Omega’s Destruction is not simply about an Omega enduring constant sexual violence. For new readers, if you can hang in there through the last part of Broken and Damaged, Eva Dresden will pull you through to a satisfying finale.Damaged felt like a thriller with Stephen King influences to me, I was wondering if the author would continue in that style with Destroyed. While there were some small moments of horror, Destroyed had a different tone than Damaged. The largest emphasis in Destroyed was on Tobias & Quinn’s emotional connection and bond. I can’t even describe how much I enjoyed reading about their bond *sigh* Their relationship evolved in such a moving way. A beast in a man’s skin, a monster she didn’t recognize under the syrup thick stains of blood and gore sheeting from his skin. Tobias’ wild green eyes swung up to meet Quinn’s. Lip curled up, showing the vicious edge of his teeth, he took in Quinn’s horrified face. Whatever else he saw snapped something inside of him. Something she felt torn asunder deep inside her heart. Pain, yes, but so much more. Possessive, protective. Swimming through it all the sharp edged sword of his love. Frankly, Tobias Kahler was a fuckup in Broken and Damaged, yet somehow I fell in love with him in Destroyed. The care he took with his children and the effort he went to demonstrate his love for Quinn was incredibly touching. Watching Tobias and Quinn come together at the end of Damaged was heart wrenching, and I was afraid Destroyed would carry on with the extreme heartbreak and angst in a way that would leave me frustrated…I never was frustrated while reading this book though, it hit so many sweet spots for me.I’m sad this series is over and envious of people who get to experience it for the first time.Eva Dresden has a short story on Wattpad, Cost of Desperation. For those who have read it, you find out what happened to the heroine, Devin, in Destroyed.I love this author’s writing. It’s descriptive, poetic, lush. Even the scenes of violence. It’s not often I come across contemporary authors who have such a unique style. I’ve been on an Omegaverse binge, but after this book I’m in a hangover and I’m going to have to switch genres for a bit. I’m off to read some Tanith Lee now to get my fix of stylized prose.Safety: (view spoiler)[No cheating, no ow drama (hide spoiler)]Triggers: (view spoiler)[ Some dubcon – honestly, no where near the amounts in Broken and Damaged. The sex is all between hero and heroine, thank god. There are a few scenes of violence. I should add more warnings...There is some noncon when Quinn (view spoiler)[goes into an unwanted heat. That was tough to read but it worked out. (hide spoiler)]Also Tobias is still an anti-hero and doesn't turn to mush around Quinn. There were a couple of *forehead smack* moments I had with him while reading. They were able to make compromises and learn to accept each other though. (hide spoiler)]This is the final book of a trilogy and ends with a hea :) In my opinion this had to be a trilogy, there's no way all the events in this trilogy could have been squeezed in one book. Also, kudos to the author for writing full length books, the total page length for the trilogy is 812 pages long. This was a fulfilling trilogy to read.Ok, lets talk about the ending and Ilya (Huge ending spoiler): (view spoiler)[ Imo There isn't a cliffhanger in this book. This couple gets closure. There is one loose thread regarding a character from Damaged, which will allow the author to come back to this series if she wishes. This is a HUGE spoiler, regarding Ilya....We never witnessed Ilya's death in Damaged. Ilya never makes an appearance in Destroyed. Later Kahler gets a call that Ilya is still alive. --->This is a side event and not a main part of the plot. It's simply a thread that will allow the author to continue with this series eventually if she wishes. The main elements of the plot in Destroyed were sorted and came to a conclusion. Those who wanted more Ilya in Destroyed or wanted closure regarding Ilya will be disappointed. Since Ilya was a side-character in Damaged and didn't even make an appearance in Destroyed, I wasn't bothered by this. (hide spoiler)] I received an ARC for an honest review :)

As a ruler and an Alpha to a brutal world, his aggressive behaviour is made to fit. Tobias and Quinn's bond are played and expressed more openly. Where Quinn is ready to reject her feelings, Tobias pushes her to realise it. I like how the author explained and expressed the main characters without changing them. Both of their dynamics are perfectly catogorized with their personality. Can I say I'm selfish to want more? Curtis is one of the constant which I never realised was a main until he is gone. The author has wonderfully interwined the situation of Quinn and Curtis. The writing is unique and the covers of this series are stunning!If you're an Omegaverse junkie, I recommend the Omega's Destruction series. This won't disappoint.

However to experience the subtle I'm simultaneous floating though empty space, devoid of all sensation and standing in the middle of a riotous explosion of colour and emotion.If you’ve got this far, in the trilogy, then you know just what to expect … or do you? This is written with the same unique voice that characterised both Broken and Damaged. Eva Dresden's writing is akin to a complex symphony, one where the full orchestra is playing a multitude of notes that blend into one harmonious tune. However to experience the subtle nuances of tone and texture that each individual instrument brings you have to listen carefully. You have to focus and tease apart the various sounds until you identify the core of the music. And in the same way I found myself re-reading some paragraphs and phrases in order to truly appreciate and value the depth and meaning of them. She felt alive. On fire and alight in the night dark sky, another star among the heavens. Soaring through a tempest raging around her. I'm normally a quick reader, more concerned with taking in the overall shape and look of the masterpiece, but that isn't possible with this book. That would lead to me missing the delicate touches of colour, the subtle shades and tones, the careful brushstrokes that build layer upon layer in order to create an image so powerful that it leaves one speechless. To fully appreciate the sophisticated and intricate imagery created by the author's powerful writing, I found myself having to slow myself down and concentrate, and yet not once did I feel irritated by having to do this. At no point did I feel aggrieved that I had to read a sentence again, the reason being that it wasn't due to poor writing. In fact, quite the opposite is true. The writing is so wondrous that it deserves, nay demands, attention be paid to it.I loved that neither character ‘lost’ anything of who they truly were, whilst at the same time managing to both grew and adapted. To our eyes Tobias' treatment of Quinn was horrendous when he first took her, and it only got worse. However not only was it part of how their world works, but he did eventually earn his forgiveness. Quinn stayed strong in her fight to retain a sense of self, though she did hover on the edge of weakness on other matters. She believed what he said. Knew that he would rip this city apart if anything should happen to them. There was something to that, an emotion she didn't want to give close inspection. It was hot, volatile ... comforting. Tobias, pig-headed alpha male that he is, thought burning the world to the ground should have been enough for Quinn to understand her place, her importance, in his life. However, to Quinn, all it made her feel like was a possession not a person. All she desired was to be listened to. Tobias tries his best to show Quinn how he feels but, in a society where an Alpha's feelings are a weakness to be exploited, it isn't always as easy as it sounds. "Then you cry for me, Quinn. You let it out where I can't."Holding her all the tighter, Tobias tucked the blankets closer and smoothed his palme over her har. Cradling her as she sobbed his sorrow out for him. As a ruling Alpha, Tobias', and therefore his family's, lives are constantly at risk. However the true source of that peril came from an unexpected quarter. It wasn't a total surprise, since the author heavily foreshadows the culprit, but I was surprised that we didn't see the return of a more familiar face. I liked that some loose ends were left to our own imaginations to complete, that reasons and explanations for past events weren't always interlinked, that there were many enemies, not just one. I loved that Tobias didn't change how he did business, or what business he did. His position and power did not allow him to become some soft, caring do-gooder. To keep Quinn, Adam and Elise safe he HAD to be the bad guy, there was no choice in his continuing to rule with violence and terror. I loved that Quinn loved him despite this, and that with Quinn, he could be the man she needed and deserved.

It's been a ride of heartache, joy, fear, uncertainty... yeh just...wow. All of the feelz you could think of and Eva Dresden pretty much did it all in this amazing series!Our story comes to a conclusion - Saved from her captors Quinn tries to get to grips with living again with her family, her kids and her overbearing Alpha.But Quinn is very damaged, which is understandable - and together they have to find better ways to deal with their emotions because as much as Tobias loves and cares for Quinn, he is still an Alpha - a very powerful one and not used to this new situation of Quinn's PTSD and fear. He has to re-think his own behaviour, and Quinn is desperate to keep their distance - not wanting to understand her feelings but wants to hide from reality.Through twists and turns, a character death that leaves them both in mourning - we finally find out what it is that is making Quinn so very very ill. And let me tell you, my jaw dropped at this sudden change! So well done to Eva for that - I had absolutely NO IDEA and NEVER saw that plot twist coming!! In this third and last instalment - we def. get a better look at Tobias and also a better look into Quinn's feelings. I really loved their scenes and I could not get enough.Adam and Elise was just so cute and I loved Quinn's protectiveness of them. Like a lioness really, and it fit perfectly in with what I like of tropes in the Omegaverse. “I don’t think I’m an Alpha, Mama,” Elise said, spindly legs kicking in wide arcs as she admired her knuckles. “Robert Dawson said I smell pretty.” “Elise, sweetheart, this is very important.” Quinn cupped her daughter’s chin, tilting it up until pale gray could meet the deep green so like her father’s. “Do not, under any circumstances, tell your father that.” “Why?” “Because he’ll kill us all.” “Oh, okay. Can I have a pudding?” Because even as broken as Quinn is after book 2 - there is nothing in this world that will stop her if anyone should ever dear to threaten her young. Quinn is such a strong female and absolutely perfect for Tobias. As her mind gets better - it is clear she is not going to let him just take control and walk all over her any more - naha - no. Quinn has a voice and Tobias better listen! :) There is a bonus chapter epilogue when you subscribe to Eva's newsletter - which I ofc. did because this series is so amazing and I def. want to follow her for her new releases. The bonus chapter was so so wonderful and I hope that this isn't the last we see of Tobias, Quinn and the kids. <3

I’m just super impatient when it comes to Quinn and Tobias.You ever read a book and then sit down to try and review it only to realise nothing you write is gonny do it justice?Yeah, that’s where I am right now.This book had me so absorbed that I didn’t even hear my teenage son and his friends freakin’ out over the PlayStation in the next room. In fact, I was so absorbed in it that the rest of my family almost starved to death (according to them) but managed to save themselves by somehow figuring out that cereal isn’t that hard to pour into a bowl and it is, in fact, a suitable substitute for a cooked meal on occasion. Yes, they are spoiled. No, I didn’t care that I abandoned them. Mum needs her book time!!QUINNOkay, I love this little Omega. She is so feckin’ feisty and strong. She will not go down without a fight. Not for anyone.She’s been through some horrendous shit. Shit, that would turn the average person into drooling pile of mush but she fought her way out of it, tooth and nail. Yup, I’m girl crushing on Quinn.There were things she had to stop lying to herself about in this book and there were broken hearts all around as well as a twist that I hadn’t even considered.You ever not appreciated a character enough and then suddenly...they’re gone?Mhmm. Ouch.I loved the ending. Quinn is one of my all-time favourite characters for her strength and fire. For her ability to hold onto her self where she ould just have easily have given up and lost herself. And for still being able to be sweet and caring with the people she loves. TOBIASOkay. I have been wanting to throat punch this alpha-hole while simultaneously riding his cock since the first book.Arg! I want him so bad but I also wanna beat him, ye ken? Turns out the male actually does have a heart and also is not quite the unmovable force that he appears to be.I loved the back and forth battle between him and Quinn. I loved the side of him we get to see in this book. But most of all? I loved the way Quinn beautifully put him in his place a couple of times and he was so taken aback by it, he didn’t just ‘neanderthal’ his way out of it. He finally respected her!This one got me in the feels.ALL OF THE FEELS!It was anticipation done right.SEX SCENESJust like in the first two books, the sex in this one was ultra-intense and hot as hell. It was just how I like it. Primal. Rough. Raw. Aggressive. And straddling the line between dubious-consent and non-consent. I love it when an alpha loses his shit (well not his actual shit because, yeah, I’m not into that) and control during sex. There’s just something about a man that can control every facial expression and reaction, then not being able to hold back his feelings while fucking. Am a right? Aye, a am! Shivering as he slid against her, feeling it inside and out as he nudged her clit with each careful thrust. She needed more. A shift of her hips, the angle just right, he slid inside of her. Stretching her wide around his length as his cock drove in before he could stop it. Snapping her teeth as he pulled back, she ignored his slow smile. Dug her nails deep into the long muscles of his back, pummeling her heels against him when he swayed to a stop. “I can’t be gentle, sweetness,” Tobias said against her lips, giving her the edge of his teeth to prove his point. “I need to fuck you. I want to knot you so good you feel it for days and have my come dripping out of you for hours.”Quinn tried to groan the curse that lingered on her tongue, but he trapped it with his sucking mouth. Teasing over her, drawing her between his lips where he could play and nip at the slick muscle. “Too soon. Later,” he grunted over her shrill whine as he pulled out. Hand between them, he slapped the back of his fingers against her spread lips, mouth twitching at her squeal. “And too tempting.” “Please,” Quinn stammered, but it was no use. No matter how she tugged and offered herself to him, Tobias wrangled her limbs back down, holding her there as he situated his shoulders between her spread thighs. “Now be a good girl and come hard for me.” FINAL THOUGHTS on DESTROYED by Eva Dresden.I first got into Omegaverse when I stumbled upon Addison Cain and knew this was the genre for me. And of course, I still enjoy her books, however, in my humble opinion, Eva Dresden now wears the Omegaverse crown. I can not wait to see what else she comes up with next.5 stars are not enough.GET IT FROM AMAZON UK HEREGET IT FROM AMAZON USA HERE

    Fucking hell! I'm not sure what to think of this book....I was so glad to see that Quinn got some of her own back on the alphas surrounding her and on Tobias....but is it enough to make up for what has been done to her...that I'm just not sure about. You will have to make up your own mind about that. I know she seems happier and more content with her life. Which i was so happy to see because after everything that girl has gone thru she so deserves that. I'm hoping there will be another book for Fucking hell!

It just doesn't seem like there was full closure for this couple. Tobias still has not fully redeemed himself in my eyes...and I'm not to sure he has in Quinn's either. While he has made up for a lot of what he has done. He still denies all the wrong he has done her, even after she showed him her pain and despair (all of it not just what he caused) he refuses to acknowledge it. How can you make something right if you don't acknowledge it?I'm going to read this book again in a few days and give myself time with it and not devour it like i did the first time in case I skipped over something in my hurry to see the HEA. I highly recommend this book!

    In my estimation, the entire Omegas Destruction Series was riveting. Yes, it was darker than dark and came with a heavy helping of blood and gore. Yes, I cringed at some of the things that happened to Quinn. But, from the beginning, the author warned us we might get sucked into the inky blackness. And, secondly, this is the story of the inhabitants of a ruthless, brutal world; where life at all levels of their society is often dog-eat-dog, and most who live there must fight to survive. I do love In my estimation, the entire Omega’s Destruction Series was riveting. Yes, it was darker than dark and came with a heavy helping of blood and gore.

And, secondly, this is the story of the inhabitants of a ruthless, brutal world; where life at all levels of their society is often dog-eat-dog, and most who live there must fight to survive. I do love the way the author brought this story to its conclusion in this 3rd book, Destroyed. After witnessing all the horror Quinn lived through, understanding her fear of succumbing to Tobias and losing herself totally, it was such a joy to watch her gradually blossom into the woman, wife, and mother who finally knew love, received it and gave it. Equally, I found it very satisfying to see Tobias genuinely realize Quinn’s truth, and finally give her the level of support she needed—although she certainly didn’t make it easy for him over most of the journey! 😊 The villain threatening Quinn, Tobias and their family wasn’t who I expected it to be, but it totally made sense to me plot-wise. The person I expected to be the villain turned out to be a hero, and I loved that. It twisted and turned me around! The author has indicated this is the end of Quinn and Tobias’ story. I’m sorry to hear that, I’d love to read more about them. Also, there are a couple of loose threads dangling. Namely, an evil Alpha from earlier in the series is not only alive but seems to be lurking around dangerously. And Tobias has acknowledged his territory’s borders are not as secure as they should be. Surely these points could be taken up in a 4th book? I’d vote for that! The author did give us a bonus ending, though, and it levered Tobias’ and Quinn’s HEA up another notch for me. Omegaverse stories always fascinate me. Most have the dystopian story setting I find compelling. I love the uber-dominant Alphas, and the petite, alluring—yet often feisty, strong—Omegas that were made for them. I love how devoted to and protective they are of their children. And of course, I want incredible, sizzling love scenes between an Alpha and his Omega. And, happily, the author built all of this so well into all three books of her series. I must give Book 3, Destroyed, 5 stars.

This is the final book in a three part series, and follows on directly after Damaged. In Destroyed we are able to see more touching moments between the Quinn & Kahler, as they navigate between each others emotions due to a complete bond. Eva has managed to capture the complexity of an Alpha/Omega relationship dynamic whilst building on it and showing depth and maturity to Quinn & Kahler’s relationship in a way other authors who write this genre fail to.If you have read both books then you are in for a treat.... first off it needs to be said that Destroyed is no where near as gut wrenching as Damaged. In Damaged Quinn suffered through ALOT of physical and emotional torment however Destroyed whilst having moments of torment were like I said only moments. To me Destroyed focuses mainly on repairing the emotional turmoil caused in Damaged and also the Quinn and Kahler’s feelings towards each other. I particularly enjoyed the moments when we as readers were able to see Kahler and Quinn exploring their new founded bond and also the scenes where we were able to see Quinn and Kahler come together as a couple within their relationship which allowed them to evolve into more of an equal partnership. I have to admit I was overcome with emotion reading about how much Kahler was willing to sacrifice to keep Quinn and the children safe and also how much Quinn’s love for Kahler’s had grown. What I took away from destroyed is that sometimes you have to ruin love to make it worth having, take a step away from idealistic love and fight to for each other... Quinn and Kahler’s love isn’t perfect to all but it’s perfect to them! Finally a massive hats off to Eva for writing such an amazing trilogy as she has kept her readers entangled in her books. I for one kept coming back for more although there were times I was questioning what I was coming back to. However I can say I am more than satisfied about the ending of this trilogy as I enjoyed every moment of reading these books and also reading how Quinn & Kahler’s story played out and how they developed as characters. I have not been disappointed and I hope to read more from Eva this coming year as she is definitely an author to watch in 2020 !!!!!

It might not have been a shiny bow, but it was a bow just the same.Quinn and Tobias haven't had an easy time, and their ending isn't any different. It's full of pain, sorrow, and mistrust, but there is also hope, passion, caring, and even love. The number of secrets and surprises didn't stop until the last chapter and I was kept on the edge of my seat with guessing what was going to happen next. Parts of the story brought tears to my eyes, but there were some moments of dark humor that lightened it a little. Because the story reads like a continuous book I think the best way to enjoy them is one right after the other, which is what I plan on doing now that the series is complete.

    Really loved the final instalment to this trilogy. As a read, it was much softer and romantic than the previous books, which were difficult to read at times. Enjoyed the central relationships and the mystery element in this story. I saw the villain coming but that didn't dampen the story for me at all. I also really liked the length, the author didn't skimp and maintained the same quality of writing from the first page to the last. I stayed engaged all through the read and pretty much read it in Really loved the final instalment to this trilogy.

    I loved this book, I was so happy that Tobias stuck to his alpha behavior until the end, he had some soft moments but he still took what he wanted, when he wanted. There were moments when Quinn was so stubborn that I got angry with her lol, but Tobias is an amazing example of a "alpha" and Quinn of a strong woman. The sex scenes continued to amaze me (among other things 🤭), and this is definitely the best alpha /Omega romance that I ever read.

    Fantastic conclusionI thought that this was the perfect conclusion of this series. Quinn and Tobias are trying to adjust to all the changes, but Quinn keeps fighting against Tobias. He forced a bond on her, and she feels the squirmy thing in her chest and she wants it gone, so she fights. I think that if the two of them had actually stopped and listened to each other more, and actually LISTENED, then things would've been better. Altogether, a perfect end to the series.

    Interesting readI finished the story and I do enjoy omegaverse novels. I did feel that the h was not accepting of her fate for a little too long. She was rescued and continued to fight him after he gave so much and showed so much care. The H eventually got through to her and they had a HEA.

    Wow, this trilogy wrung me out. I dont want to give anything away because the book is just too good to spoil and Quinns story is so well told. If youre looking for a neat, cookie cutter romance, keep looking. This story is gritty, dark, rough, filled with angst and you will not be able to put it down. After all Quinn has endured, she finally gets her HEA minus some pieces that were either Broken,Damaged or Destroyed along the way. Wow, this trilogy wrung me out.

(hide spoiler)] However, now that I've read this book, I'm thinking of going back and finishing. While this installment had a happy ending, the characters' emotional journey-or lack thereof- left me unfulfilled. I started skimming over the sex scenes after a while because they felt repetitive, meaningless, and eye-rollingly exaggerated (I can only handle so many 'exploding synapses' at a time). I couldn't see much difference between when Quinn had sex with Tobias in book 3 and when she had sex with Lee / Ilya in book 2 since in both books, the writing for those scenes and Quinn's forced reactions were equally over-embellished and her level of willingness still murky.The book itself is well written (grammatically, stylistically), but as a narrative it dragged; I had to take frequent breaks to finish. The whole story felt rather anticlimactic. In a nutshell: (view spoiler)[ Quinn feels emotionally and physically like sh*t (as she did for basically all of book 1 and 2). She and Tobias have a lot of sex. Tobias uses his body and "trunk like" limbs to hold her captive like a toddler in almost every interaction. He never seems to truly hear what she is saying unless she's on the brink of death. Quinn miraculously realizes she's in love with Tobias. The Big Bad of the book turns out to be- surprise! surprise!- the help, which it only takes these geniuses a million years to figure out despite the fact that only 2 people have had access to Quinn's food this whole time. Oh, and Ilya, the true villain who should have been violently torn limb from limb (apparently this sort of primal violence is reserved only for small, mentally unhinged, female nannies) might be roaming free. (hide spoiler)]I just hoped that after all the sh*t Quinn and the reader had to put up with, there'd be a bit more physical and emotional tenderness from Tobias (I know, I know, he's a big, strong alpha, can't show weakness blah blah blah, but he can at least make her, his mate and omega, feel more like an equal partner. Their entire relationship is him using his physical strength to make her feel like a fly attacking a bull, except on the rare occasion when he magnanimously indulges a request). He can't even bring himself to apologize for (view spoiler)[ raping her during her broken heat and making her hemorrhage out. This is where most omegaverse writers exemplify an alpha's devotion for his omega mate by making him at least attempt to fight his biology for her well-being. NOPE. Don't expect to get any self-awareness or remorse from Tobias. (hide spoiler)] Every interaction between these two felt stifling, suffocating; his rough treatment felt like it was less about love and more about asserting dominance. Omegaverse books are not easy to write; they're an incredibly fine balance of dubious consent and desire. But given how strong the writing could sometimes be, I think I raised my hopes that the plot would be equally strong. Perhaps this is more a lesson for me to lower my expectations (alas, I've foolishly allowed myself to get excited for Eva Dresden's Rite of the Omega ).

The struggle that this couple goes through to get to their HEA, both emotionally and physically is intense. At times, I felt like there might be no light in that darkness, however, we can see glimpses of it in this final installment. I love the growth of both main characters. Quinn really comes into her own and learns what it means to be a true mate. Tobias really slayed my heart in all his high-handed alpha glory. His tenderness and devotion to Quinn was something to behold. As expected, this final book in the series didn't slack off on suspense and action. I was shocked at some of the events and had quite a few OMG moments. As promised, the story wraps up with a satisfying HEA. This series is truly outstanding and is a must for all lovers of dark romance and Omegaverse! It's unapologetically dark and deliciously steamy in all the best ways! Can't wait to see what this author has in store for us next!

This was one emotional ride but well worth it. Of course, not for the faint of heart and those who are new to the Omegaverse universe. If you don't understand what the genre is, it may be offensive to you. However, if you are familiar, this series is a highly recommended one!

    What a beautiful ending to a dark and tragic story.I know a lot of people hated the last book or couldn't handle the dark nature of it. To be honest, it was rough, but the way Eva writes the utter desolation of her characters is just fascinating. I always feel on the edge of my seat, the second book left me feeling so broken and hollow for Quinn. This last book was just pure gold. It was everything I wanted for her.

I think sometimes people put unrealistic expectations on books.I think that the very good ones don't gloss over the devastation and the darkness, because honestly life is full of that. This book is by far my favorite and though I saw a certain betrayal coming I didn't want to believe it, I kept wishing it wasn't true for Quinn's sake. So excited to read the author's next works.

Their very dark yet sensual trigger sensitive story is the NASCAR of all things sweet, salty, spicy and dangerous. (Oh! Did I mention all the smexy/smut! by all means grab the wet ones and have an Alpha close at hand.) Please strap in for this one because it's gonna get really bumpy on this ride.

    I am so happy Quinn finally gets to be happy! Of course this is still an Eva Dresden book so Quinn still has a battle to get that happy ending. That battle is a crazy one too! I loved Tobias in the second book and I love him even more in this last book. He is all alpha but he will do anything to keep Quinn. But at the same time he wants her to be happy with him. I like that even tho Kahler has rescued Quinn she doesn't just rollover and think he is the best, because it wouldn't have fit how I am so happy Quinn finally gets to be happy!

I just loved this series and I also love that you get to see Devin from a previous book the author wrote. And you find out how things are going for her as well. If you like your romance dark (and I mean dark!), but with a HEA, I HIGHLY recommend this series!
