"I’m not stalking you; I’ve befriended you. There’s a difference. If I was stalking you, you’d never know it."
I am ecstatic to say that I definitely enjoyed this book more than the second book in the series. This book had everything that I loved about the first book in the series; a strong alpha male, some amazing action (and I ain't just talking about kicking ass), and a strong and likeable female lead. This book made me almost be late for work and had me distracted throughout the day wondering what would happen next with these characters.
While I did love both the male and female main characters (Maksim and Sydney) in this book, I feel like Maksim really commanded this story. Maksim was a great alpha male but he also had such horrors in his past. I loved getting to see some vulnerability to him. From start to finish I couldn't get enough of Maksim. It took me a little bit to completely warm up to Sydney but once I did I really loved how strong and independent she was. She also could be very vulnerable and that really allowed her and Maksim to really connect. I absolutely loved the chemistry between them.
There was some really great action in this book. Maksim and the rest of the guys can really kick some ass. I don't want to give anything away but there were definitely some twists in this book that I did not see coming but loved.
I noticed that there were some typos in this book and the occasional fragment. Clearly that did not lessen my enjoyment of this book but I also couldn't give this five stars because of that. I would recommend this book based on Maksim alone. If you have read any of the previous books in this series you will enjoy this one. I am excited to get to read more about Alek (at least I think that he is next as that is what this book made it seem like). Many thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for giving me the opportunity to read this book.
