Age Gap | Forbidden Romance series | NOT a standalone
Well, I'm certainly not disappointed with how this book ended. I may have even squeed a little! This has been a tumultuous journey and everything came together perfectly. I will say though, I was hoping one area of the book would have wrapped up a little neater. It feels like this issue was just swept under the rug though and if it were a TRUE story we all know it would eventually come back to haunt the characters. You can read my short spoiler below if you are curious about what I'm talking about.
SPOILER ALERT HERE >> The past drug trade business with el jefe is what I feel wasn't wrapped up. He came back so that Cane could put some money back into the business (in quite a threatening way) but never wrapped it up. Are he can Cane cool? Did the transaction go through without authorities catching on? What HAPPENED! I feel like Shanora made is such a huge part of this particular book but never finished it.
Overall, I really loved this book and look forward to reading the final novella, Being. Mrs. Cane. I hope both Kandi and he get their wishes, desires, and truly live happily ever after. After all the crap they have been through it's clear they both deserve it.
Just a little recap on this series- each book MUST be read in order. This is a trilogy that follows Kandi and Cane as they find love in one another even though they aren't supposed to be together. Cane is Kandi's fathers best friend. There is a big age gap between the two and their relationship is very forbidden. This series also has quite a bit of suspense to it- there's a lot of things standing in the way of their HEA- and some action as well. I love how well rounded it is even though some was a little over dramatic for my tastes.
If this sounds good to you, then don't miss this series! It's free to read in kindle unlimited and how a lot of HOTNESS if you like that sort of thing. I look forward to continuing my journey in Shanora's backlog of books (which is what I am currently doing). She's a fantastic writer!
