  • Emotional!

    Intense. Broody. Possessive. Protective. Cold. Calculated. Broken. Emotional. So many feels and they all came from Preston Vos. This author SLAYED me with Preston Vos. I'm honestly in a bit of shock right now. My favorite has always been the Viking and Preston just knocked him down to number 2. I can't believe I just said that. Is it possible to have two equally favorites? I can't let go of the Viking but all I can think about is Preston after what I just read. I haven't read all of Sybil Bartel's books yet, but I'm very close and this is her best book yet! This book took me through so many stages of emotions. It was thrilling and exciting, sad and depressing, emotionally gut wrenching and then just overwhelming love. I honestly didn't want the book to end. Mercy was a great heroine but I'm gonna admit, it's always about the hero for me. She's great, that's all you need to know. No seriously, I did like her as well. I was sad and disappointed in her in the beginning but I actually don't blame her for what happened. And honestly, you learn so much about what these two where thinking later in the book that you really can't be mad at either of them for their start. Another piece to my Preston loving puzzle was seeing him interact with Mercy's son who is deaf. The coldest heart will melt at those two. After everything you learn about Preston's past, it just blows me away how he was with both Mercy and Nash. I loved it.

  • Preston and Merc are HOT!!!

    This hero of Mrs. Bartel’s is one of my favorites. Bartel is one of the best contemporary romance authors out there in my opinion. Callous is full of angst and hot romance. Preston’s mind works a mile-a-minute, but his thoughts always revolve around his friend’s sister, Mercy. Despite the intervention of time and heaps of complications, they come together. Mercy is one of my favorite h’s. My other fave is Ariel. I don’t want to give too much away, but you must read this book. This was one of the most satisfying HEA’s I have ever read. Preston’s character was so very fascinating and Mercy’s ability to empathize with him was wonderful. I was riveted and finished this ARC in one sitting!

  • Amazing But Then It Wasn't

    Based on how this novel started out I thought it was going to be amazing but then it just wasn't. Before the pitchforks come out let me explain! It starts off with a prologue type of situation which I was excited about. The present story starts off nicely with the heroine telling us about present hero and action-packed-problem hits and.... then proceeds to get resolved within a chapter? I guess it was wrong of me to think that all the books in this series would follow the pattern all the other books have set. It was just weird to have the couple interact because they wanted to and not because there was a big bad after one or all of them. Most of this author's novels feature insta-love and she's one of the few that make me not hate it. Mercy (at least in the beginning) seemed to have a good head on her shoulders. She was sassy, mouthy and knew that she would put her son above anything else. Though in the last third of the novel she got this annoying tick where she started running off when small problems would come up with Preston instead of talking to him about it even though they always made up afterword anyways. Speaking of her son, (even though I dislike children in novels) I would have loved to have known what condition he has (or if he even has one?) that caused him to be born deaf. I can already imagine the future story he could have if/when the author ages him up. Preston was a whole other ball game compared to the other heroes this series has featured in past books. He's broken due to happenings in his childhood and the way he's found to circumvent that is control in every aspect of his life and his surroundings. Counting and calculating is a way of life for him. If there was anyone who would benefit from talking to a therepist it would be him. Living like that is not what I would call living at all. As much as he is controling he's also secretive. Getting personal information out of him is like pulling teeth. I would have liked to have gotten to know him more. The ending was sweet! Considering there was no big bad (remember that ended almost before the present story began), it was just that: sweet. I'm not excited for Thomas's book to be next. The way the heroine Summer was presented didn't make me like her one bit. I'm still on the bandwagon of let's-give-Neil's-cousin/nephew(I forget who he was only that he was presented at the beginning of another character's book) a book for himself! My Favorite Quotes: "Bad sh*t happened in odd numbers." "Our experiences shape us." "Feelings are never wrong, they just are."

  • Awesome storytelling. Preston? WOW!

    You will love Preston. Holy hotness! This entire book is a waiting game between Mercy and Preston. It will keep you on the edge of your seat. Preston’s character is like no one you have ever read before. He is precise. He counts out everything. He keeps up with everything. He remembers everything. And he is so in love with Mercy that he is almost afraid of his feelings. And Mercy is so in love with him but she’s also frustrated with him 99.9% of the time. He never really says what he means. He only just insinuates it. The anticipation and the waiting for them to finally come together will have your heart beating so fast and you will be crying for them to tell each other I love you. Incredibly intense and incredibly sensual and romantic. I adored this book.

    Thanks for your feedback!
