Actual Rating: 5 stars
Incredible! Shanora Williams blew this duet out of the park. It's a slow burn, emotional, forbidden, and breathtaking read! I wasn't sure where Shanora was going to take this book after the way it ended in The Man I Want, but she did it JUSTICE! I am thrilled with how everything turned out. If you haven't had the chance to read the first book in the duet, now is the time! You can read it for free in kindle unlimited. As it is a duet, the books MUST be read in order. I highly recommend it to ALL romance readers.
Since this is the second book in a duet I won't get into the plot because it would spoil both books. But I do feel like I need to share that there is some cheating involved in the story. Most readers would be turned off by this and I can understand their hesitation when it comes to such topics. However, this duet is so beautifully written and emotionally evocative that that cheating DOES make sense even it it's not technically right. Is it justified? Well, you will have to read to come to this conclusion yourself. I would strongly recommend it either way though as it's something you WILL be able to look past. I promise, I wouldn't recommend a dirty cheating novel with horrible characters who make bad decisions and hurt others. That is NOT the case here and again, to understand what I am saying you would truly have to read it yourself. I hope this helps those who are concerned.
Anyway, I have only recently started reading the authors work and these two books are the only ones I have read so far. I WILL be reading many more though as both are so amazing that I can't NOT read the rest of her books (who come highly recommend from other readers). I just snagged a copy of Wanting Mr. Cane and hope it gives me all the feels like this one did!
I HIGHLY recommend The Man I Want and The Man I need!!
