FIVE 🎩🎩🎩🎩🎩 hats from Britt!
I am eating up these crossovers from these two. Both HJ Bellus and Kathy Coopman’s are outstanding on their own, but together these two are phenomenal. Add in the blending of worlds from each of their own series makes these books not just something totally unique but also flat out incredible. I thought I was blown away with the first one, but Toxic seriously knocked me on my rear.
Something both of these ladies know how to do well is hit you with a solid blow right in the feels. The amount of emotion that was pulled from me while reading Alex and Maria’s story is insane. From pure joy to full on ugly cry, my heart was lost to the beauty of their story right from the start. Alex is a man who despite his current state you know is good. The heartbreaking trauma he endured with the sacrifice he made haunts him in a way that made me hurt for him.
With his life in a downward spiral Maria was like a beacon of light in the darkness. Even at his worst she saw through to the man he truly is. I loved that even seeing that she still gave him no slack. The sass and strength were mighty within the little dynamo that is Maria. Even with all the emotional heavy the romance that builds between these two is still full of heat and a good bit a swoon too. Mixing together that angst and sweet in a way that keeps you absolutely hooked the entire time.
