the story so I took a break I even considered to stop reading After a few days, I decided to try again DAMN, I should ve trusted Jewel because then My life was ruined.I m not kidding.I READ NONSTOP I was hiding in the toilet at work so no one would bother me If my boss is reading this, I M REALLY SORRY I promise it won t happen again well, at least until the second book comes out Lol 34 year old Evelyn went on vacation in Vancouver with her two best friends, Lila and Graham She was always the third wheel in the bunch, but it never bothered her There, she meets 35 year old Ronin and their connection was immediate, until he left the day after Two weeks later, Ronin and Evelyn meet again in the snowy Aspen, where she runs a bath and body shop and makes all the produces herself and he starts his new job in the ski patrol Their story was sexy, romantic and mature well, almost always , Until BOOM ,With great power comes great responsibility either you can save the world or you can save yourself How do you choose which life isimportant than others I m sure when Jewel created Ronin s character, she had no idea of all the catastrophic ovarian explosions all around the world He was a combination of Griffin Transcend duet and Jethro Indebted only mature 35 years old , romantic except in the bed room There, he wasn t a gentleman at all , hotter he s half Asian for god s sake and crazier not in a dark way In other words MY WET DREAM.There s a lot to add about the plot, but I think this is one of those books that the less you know before you dive in, the better Trust me Yet, there were some things that didn t add up and hopefully will be resolved in the second book For example, both heroes have siblings and everyone is in touch with them except for the heroes So why were they mentioned so many times , Jewel wrote a brilliant story that melted my heart and played with my head with a perfect touch of unrealistic element that I really enjoyed As in all her books, the characters were human and well developed, the writing was realistic and made me feel all the emotions and the plot was SO original The first thing I did after the book ended, was to write Jewel a message that the ARC she sent me was probably damaged, because how could the book end like that Who does such a thing to their readers, Goddammit However, if you re a true friend, you will read the book NOW and suffer with me until the second part comes out, because I m totally counting the minutes until March O O E O I T G I IT Y OG O O E E IE Gaaaaaaaaah, why would you cliff hang like that Should the sequel fail to drop in 12 days, someone better tell Jewel Ann that I ll just burst into tears Yep Gaaaaaaaaah, why would you cliff hang like that Should the sequel fail to drop in 12 days, someone better tell Jewel Ann that I ll just burst into tears Yep Down below, you will see that I was undecided and hesitant about this duet at first.Now, thanks to the information that came from my awesome friends Wil, Ceara, Mel and H lya, I have made my mind up Here is the safety information about these books.There is something akin to a threesome in Book 1 and also there is cheating in Book 2 view spoiler Well, what starts as a threesome with some kissing and touching ends when the heroine leaves her best friend and her husband on their own.The cheating Down below, you will see that I was undecided and hesitant about this duet at first.Now, thanks to the information that came from my awesome friends Wil, Ceara, Mel and H lya, I have made my mind up Here is the safety information about these books.There is something akin to a threesome in Book 1 and also there is cheating in Book 2 view spoiler Well, what starts as a threesome with some kissing and touching ends when the heroine leaves her best friend and her husband on their own.The cheating is between the hero and the best friend and I didn t like the paranormal excuse Some may think he couldn t help it due to his special condition but he could have kept things friendly in my opinion He didn t need to get sexual to relieve her pain Did he Although there is an emotional bond that grows between the hero and the best friend of the heroine for months, their getting sexual happens once and it involves touching her breasts, fingerf cking and dryhumping her until they both orgasm But I am sure that if that woman hadn t committed suicide, the next stop would be full penetration sex because it is clear that things were going there And by the way, when he orgasmed, he cries his wife s name and in my opinion, this is a disgusting attempt of the writer at trying to show us that the hero loves his wife The whole paranormal thing how the hero feels the feelings of the people he saves is also another lame attempt at justifying cheating.What is worse is that, the heroine forgives him with no groveling She doesn t even let him explain She says she doesn t care that he cheated and she just forgives him hide spoiler Please refer to these brilliant and brave reviews of my friends Ceara and Mel, to see how far the hero s cheating goes.https www.goodreads.com review showhttps www.goodreads.com review showI am not going to read this duet because all these things that are mentioned above would definitely taint their love story in my eyes and it would be no romance but a farce in my opinion The part below was my review before knowing anything about this duet.And I am glad that I have such awesome friends who have helped me to decide about these books.My review as of 20.01.2020Well, maybe I don t know yet The blurb is vague.The few reviews are vague.I need solid reviews before I decide I really don t have any idea what this book entails It sounds intriguing but as Ms Jewel is either a hit or a miss for me, I will wait for the reviews of friendsAnd I will be very pleased if someone can explain to me WTFThe four become close very closemeans A foursome, swingers, what I ve treasured each and every story from Jewel, but this story has reached up and touched the sky for me It should be a hard act to followfor any other author.But jewel will keep raising the sky it seems, like a personal challenge she sets for herself with every novel She s competing with herself story after storyAs always, Her prose is vibrant and lively It billows and rumbles, pregnant with possibilities and jewel is a sailor and explorer Moving from one trope to another, adventur I ve treasured each and every story from Jewel, but this story has reached up and touched the sky for me It should be a hard act to followfor any other author.But jewel will keep raising the sky it seems, like a personal challenge she sets for herself with every novel She s competing with herself story after storyAs always, Her prose is vibrant and lively It billows and rumbles, pregnant with possibilities and jewel is a sailor and explorer Moving from one trope to another, adventurous and curiousWith a pickaxe and pen she goes digging deep into human soul and brain, chronicling her findings, marvelling at the what she discovers hidden between layers of our psychesHad she not been a successful writer, she d have made a brilliant psychologist, I m sureShe keeps folding the story into an origami masterpiece, till we end up with a 4 dimensional POV.There s her side, characters side, readers side and the truth.Her plot, character s reaction, our perspective and the Phenomenon of truth you ll get it when you read it The plot is unbelievable because its uncharted territory for me I ve never read anything like this before But as always I don t doubt, I don t ask, I don t choose pick from the menu.Whatever she feeds me, I Chew and savour.Why she gives a particular twist, I dont question.My trust in her ability is complete and total So when she declares that her next Book touches something intangible and obstruseI say with my thudding heart Bring It On she has made me question the events unfolding in front of my eyesHinder not the soul s intended path unto light, lest shards of darkness shed upon theeI wonder if all superheroes face the same dilemma Is it all WORTH IT With great power comes great responsibility Either you save the world or save yourself.A beautiful romance set in Picturesque Aspen Her capacity for empathy seeps down on the pages, she s grabbed my heart in her hands and squeezed tight, at some scenes I was Breathless, at some dumbstruck, at some weeping and howling, till the acute pain was too much to handle FlatlinedIt s complex and well rounded, impeccably polished and consummately narrated story jewel has explored the entire spectrum from softly romantic to heartwrenching sadnesswith loads of funny in between Her tone is snappy, dialogues crisp but the feelsOMG THE FEELS, they just render you stupid I felt attacked from all sides, sharp barbs piercing my heart every chapter.There s Evelyn Taylor Science Geek, Evie the Chemist of Saponification, surrounded by perfumes and scents, soaps and scrubs, cleansing the world one soap bar at a timeThe meet cute with Ronin Alexander the Book Nerd skier, happens in a Vancouver bar, where she s the third wheel tugged by her best friends Graham LilaHot buns Yummy bubble tea Sunny and fifty five degrees in beautiful Vancouver And an Asian Frenchman who liked saving lives Short of Graham giving Lila a dozen orgasms there s no way Lila s day beat mineThey re getting married and she s here to keep Lila company.Was it fate..destiny..serendipity who knows, but they end up in Aspen, Colorado together and the connection purifies and distills in the pristine snow resort townI felt like we were a fact the sky was blue, water was wet, the wind blew Ronin and Evelyn just wereAnd then as they come closer, the tiny details of life gets clearer All the truths, tainted and stark seem to crawl into the periphery moving towards the centerEvery lie is actually a truth in a parallel universeTheir love is already set up for some unconquerable invisible challenges It demands tremendous amount of faith and trust against indescernible A sequence of events unfold like a domino effect, one thing leads to the other until Evie is demanding answers..and so was I What happens next dropped my JAW TO THE FLOOR Things get tough all around but the brunt of the collapsing world falls on Evie the hardest, she s wounded the most and looking at the CATASTROPHIC ending.she s going to be curling on the floor to weep until she dieswhy should I be the only one wallowing in misery and grief After all these books, you d think I d be used to Jewel pulling the ground beneath my feet But like a sucker,I fall for it EVERYTIMEI wish I could ve said , revealed some plot secrets but Jewel would get pissed and demote me, so come suffer
