I was entirely too enthralled to stop long enough to write a review for this series, so I’ll just do an all in one. At the end of the day, bottom line, if you haven’t read this yet… DO NOT put it off any longer!!! You can thank me later…
First books high points for me were the banter. I was in love with these two just as soon as they started interacting with each other. It was glorious. Also, there date/non-date was the best thing ever. I thought it was different and original and lovely!!!
Book 2 was definitely a tease. I kept thinking that Monica was going to make a bad decision or do the wrong thing and I was so surprised by what she actually did. Jessica was full and center on my shit list as well as that douchetard Kevin! As always Jonathan and Monica were wonderful!!!
This had some sad points but also some really lovely ones as well. It was awesome to see Jonathan change and Monica’s struggle was a tough one. Not just with the events but her struggle within herself and trying to accept what and who she is and what that meant to her. I loved that she could be swayed and distracted with sex and not in a cheesy or over done kind of way. It made the amount of passion between these two obvious and beautiful.
Jonathan’s POV is live and direct in this one!!! And I absolutely loved it!!! I loved their real date they went on. I loved the banter as always and the drama. The kitchen scene was bananas!!! The sex in general was steamy and creative and HOT!!! Jonathan was poetic at every other turn and I loved how he encouraged her to communicate with him. Even though he surely could do more communicating with his secretive self. I really think book 4 was where it started to climb into EPIC FUCKING SERIES territory!
Again, perfect freaking title. Burn had me heated! I am not talking about the sex. I wanted to crack Jessica, Darren, and Kevin’s skulls to the white meat. They were not making me happy at all. Most of the book our beloved couple spend separated and it was a lovely thing to see the confidence in which one of them had that the other would definitely be back. The “hotel room door” scene was some hot stuff. When they were getting it on it was also extremely HOT, so again the name of the book is fitting.
Hands DOWN the best book of the entire series. If for nothing else Chapter one alone!!! I was on the edge of my seat excited, I need a minute, oh goodness kind of amped after that chapter. The rest of the book did not disappoint at all. There were so many twists and turns and that ending I was just like WHOA!
Last but definitely not least, Sing! This was so freaking heart wrenching. I’m talking most of the book!!! Was it worth it in the end, of course! I definitely teared up several times. Especially when Jonathan would get poetic or Monica would let her emotions show. I can’t believe it’s over… C.D. Reiss did say she is thinking of doing a coda, but no time frame on when and if she will. I will wait forever because I love these two entirely too much to let them go!
In short… this series was just plain and simply…
