5 Star Review by Kristie K
Audrey Carlan has delivered another stunning example of heart-breaking loss, heart-stopping suspense, and decadent erotic heat…
Life is the next installment in the Trinity Series, a gripping tale of soul sisters, and the men that love them. This story belongs to Maria De La Torre, a sinfully sensual creature with a dancers body, and the heart of a lioness. Her history is littered with struggle, loss, fear, and redemption. Through it all, Maria has held onto her heart, and she gives it all to those she loves and trusts. On the heels of the terrifying and tragic kidnapping of her best friend and soul sister, Maria finds herself embattled anew with her own demons from the past. When the grim reaper himself comes calling for her, she is thrust into the arms of the last man she should ever be with. A force in and of himself, Elijah Redding set his sights on the delectable Ms. De La Torre the minute he set eyes on her. When her life becomes endangered, Elijah will stop at nothing to protect her. As the danger increases, the complicated relationship between Maria and Elijah also grows. The heat sizzles between them, even as Maria tries diligently to keep her distance. When Elijah finally breaks down her walls, will he take her heart with him?
Holy hell, this book was HOT!! I read it , and am currently suffering the worst book hangover I’ve had in a long while. I can honestly say there was nothing about it that I didn’t like. Maria is a super hot, sexy, sensual latina with an inner fire and sass that inspires greatness. The type of woman that wars are fought over, and men lose their minds for. The best part about her is that her heart is as beautiful, or even more so, than the package it comes in. She is a strong woman, a survivor, and she loves with her whole heart and soul. She feels deeply, hurts deeply, and loves with all she is. The friendship she shares with her soul sisters is everything a person could ever want, and their love and bond is the stuff legends are made of. Elijah is beyond sexy, with his dark hair and green eyes. A body made for sin, and a heart and soul worth dying for. The perfect alpha male, Elijah is strong and confident, smart and completely badass. His protective instincts scream at him to take what is his, and protect it with everything he has. And don’t even get me started on his softer side…dayum. The heat and chemistry between these to is combustible, and when it finally blows…there goes the neighborhood. I adored every character, including those that didn’t take center stage in this installment. The plot and storyline were incredibly detailed and completely on point. Both flawlessly executed and totally intense. Ms. Carlan is immensely talented, a true artist at her craft, and an author that I plan to follow in every single aspect of her career. Amazing.
