Publisher's Summary

I thought that I was broken before, but my damage never tasted as bitter as this.

The Harlequin boys are more than just a memory now. More than a daydream of our youth and an idea to cling onto. They’re my greatest weakness and my biggest regret, but I’ve started to realize that coming back to Sunset Cove was always my fate.

My heart beats to the turn of the tide here. My skin only warms beneath this sun. And my soul will only ever be home on these streets and with the men who grew out of my memories. But nothing is the same as I remember, and the time for childish games is coming to an end.

I may want to pretend that the last 10 years never happened, but the nightmare I lost myself in has followed me home, and I can’t keep ignoring the things I once did to survive. The question is, will my mistakes be the end of me and my boys? Will the choices I made then change everything now?

And will the life I never wanted steal away my only chance at the life I’m afraid to wish for? 

This is an enemies-to-lovers contemporary series where the girl will end up with multiple love interests and all of the characters are in their late 20s. Trigger warning: This series features gangs, violence, dark romance, and jealous/possessive themes.

🌟🌟🌟🌟💫

So I am honestly not sure how I am doing after that ending. I thought the ending that Dead Man’s Isle was bad, I am definitely more upset by this one. I need to know what happens next!

This book will make you laugh & cry & I was without a doubt yelling at your kindle at the end due to the idiotic choices of one character. Seriously? What? Why? We also got to see some of my favorites from the Brutal Boys series & I loved those moments.

This is another amazing book by these authors & I cannot wait for the next one!

Also, Bridget & Jake Bordeaux's performance for this audiobook is so good. These two do such a phenomenal job of bring the characters & story to life. I love everything about this audiobook! Jake has such an amazing voice for Shawn, it is exactly how I expected him to sound.

Too much angst not enough progress

These are my absolute FAVORITE authors. Never given under a 5 star until now. The book had too much internal angst without much progress with the relationships or story moving forward. Bummer.

disappointment

I love the narrator's and I enjoyed some of the romance scene but I really can't handle the storyline of this series any longer I feel like the negativity of the storyline has become too much for me personally when I read or listen to a novel I have to see some kind of light at the end of the tunnel some sort of possibility of a happy ending but with this particular series it goes from bad to worse in my viewpoint because there's no light at the end of the tunnel that I can see for the characters I enjoy drama I enjoy intrigued but with this particular series it feels like the negativity of it overpowers everything else I guess I just prefer more balance between the negative and the positive and this novel Didn't Do It For Me

f***ing shawn is the f***ing worst

jake's portrayal of shawn makes me hate him so much more. he's sleazy and i feel gross listening to him which is an A+ narration in my opinion. the story develops more into rogue's relationship with the harlequin boys and i can feel how much they mean to each other through the audiobook. there is so much hurt at the end of this book i was simply a puddle when i finished.

It doesn’t make sense

I like this series for the most part, but Rogue’s decision at the end makes no sense. POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT: I get why she made the overall decision (although that just emphasizes her whiny victim mentality), but the way she did it actually accomplished what she wanted to avoid in a much more brutal and devastating way. It’s completely illogical, but no one cares about logic anymore anyway, so I’m probably spinning my wheels here.

Regarding the series thus far- I somewhat agree with the reviewer who hates Fox. I don’t hate him, but honestly, he’s pretty stupid and lacks appeal at this point. I suspect he’s the counterpart to Saint in another series, but in that series, there was always sexual tension between Saint and the MC that made her attraction to him understandable. Here, the few scenes between Rogue and Fox don’t accomplish that.

Finally, Rogue is supposed to be tough and strong, but too often she acts like a perpetual victim who whines about things she should’ve gotten over as soon as she found out the boys’ stories. Okay, so they were mean when they told you to leave, and you had a tough life, but you’re still alive and worse things happened to some of them so suck it up and move on!

Not my favorite series from these lovely authors but I’m still going to get the next book, so I clearly enjoy it more than it annoys me :)

Amazing

This book was amazing and so heartbreaking!! I can not believe the last several chapter's. I am starting book 4 immediately... who needs sleep anyway. I am very happy that book 5 will be out this month because I don't think I can live with another cliff hanger for months! I absolutely love the narrator's for this series! They really do bring this book to life and do it amazing justice ❤️

Not the blue eyes!!

F***ing Shawn! I can’t even with that guy. He makes it such a struggle to get through the books. And listening to him— so much hate yet perfection in a character. No! No no! The narrators— amazing job making me hate him so much!

Ummmm

I absolutely love the story and the writers and the references to Dark Fae and kings of quarantine. But it’s so damn hard to get through the book because I hate Fox so damn much. I can’t find a redeeming quality I like about him. I love the rest of the characters, I wish that Rogue would have a bit more backbone tho if h…

Anticipating book 4

I hate Shawn so much my anger is off the charts and I can’t wait until they end him. I’m hoping Rogue is the one to end his sad life so she can get her own back . As book 4 isn’t on audio yet I might have to go and read it.

Carnival of chaos, hot loving and mayhem

This series is one of my first and most favourite of the sisters.
I love Rogues character and how she isn’t your typical fmc of a book. She is rough around the edges with tattoos and rainbow hair.
The narration is fantastic. I can tell instantly to what character I am listening to.
Andddd that cliffhanger though!!!

Audio perfection!

Chase is my favourite of Rogues guys and my heart just broke for him. He goes through such a terrible and traumatic ordeal that it seriously had me feeling a little stabby. Chase is the one who can empathise with Rogue the most on a personal level as they had similar problems when they were young, growing up poor. Chase can relate to Rogue, both so broken inside and and yet so strong carrying on and never letting anyone know how hard they fight internally.

The best part of Carnival Hill was the character development, JJ had a rocky start with me after what he does. There was a lot of revels as we finally get the truth about Maverick and what he experienced in prison. Though there had been hints and clues its nothing compared to the truth. And in true C and S style their truths come with their own unique twist.

These amazing writers also know how to write a good villain, one that makes you so angry with hate. The only other character I despise as much as Shawn is also a creation of the authors. I can't wait to hopefully see Shawn get what he deserves preferably thanks to Rogue. He has caused so much, pain and is so toxically controlling that he just makes my blood boil.

The audio narrators were perfectly chosen to bring this story to life and help the reader to completely immerse themselves within this incredible world. If you like reads that leave you feeling like your emotions are on a rollercoaster that has no end then this is the book for you.

Amazing, As Always

Bridget and Jake brought one of my favorite series to life in that perfect way that only they can. So excited for the next installment, whenever that may be.
