My Thoughts

The Belle
My last reading experience with the O'Malley family was incredible. I adored Carrigan and James so I was so excited to read this next book about Cillian and Olivia. To be honest, it was pretty bland. I enjoyed reading it. I was mostly engaged but overall it just didn't really make me excited to read. The pros. I loved the addition of Olivia having a child. That will almost always make me love a story a little bit more. I love seeing characters and their potential hero or heroine interact with kids. It's just a thing I have. I also love the protectiveness and growing up Cillian did. Watchign Olivia open herself up to love after being manipulated by her family was great. I also loved how the book ended with a seemingly completely unlikeable villain become something a little bit more. I also LOVED the setup for the next book! I am super excited to read it regardless of my feelings for this book.

The Beast
The cons? As I said above, it just didn't grab me the way the other books did. I was engaged but I wasn't invested. I thought that Cillian and Olivia were kind of bland and lacking a little oomph the other characters in the previous books had. I think this will be remedied, I hope so, in the next book as the glimpse we get of them they both seem to have a lot going on underneath the surface.

General Admission
If you like mafia romance, suspense, and growing up...this book is for you.
