Book Review of “BACKLASH” By Geneva Lee @GreysPromo
She’s a wildfire. He lit the match…
I thought my life was hell until the devil walked through my door. Sterling isn’t the boy who stole my heart anymore. He’s cunning, manipulative, and dangerous–so why does my body ache for his touch?
I thought I could trust him. I should have known better. He’s broken my heart twice. Now there’s nothing left to break. Because I’m not the girl he fell for or the woman he used. He thought he could play me. He thought he could hurt me. But I’m a survivor, and while I might respond to every stolen kiss, every forbidden moment, there’s one piece of me he’ll never touch. I sold my soul to protect it, and no one can ever learn the truth–not even Sterling Ford.
I never thought I’d find myself begging for Adair’s forgiveness. But she belongs to me. She always has and she always will. No matter how hard she tries to rewrite history.
It’s too late to change who we’ve become. Maybe nothing can save us now. Maybe nothing ever could. I built my fortune with blood, fueled by lies, and soon my past will catch up with both of us. I can’t protect her from the man I’ve become, and no one can save me from the storm that’s coming–not even Adair MacLaine.
New York Times bestselling author Geneva Lee delivers with the second book in the Rivals series, an emotional roller coaster that’ll leave you begging for more!
Thank You Grey’s Promotion for gifting me a copy of BACKLASH. All opinions are my own.
I thought I loved Blacklist, well I loved Backlash even more! This book delves into the nitty gritty. I got to learn the heartbreaking story of Sterling’s past. I learned more about Adair and her tumultuous upbringing. The characters were developed even further, and we had some new characters introduced, and I cannot wait to see how they play into book three, titled BOMBSHELL.
Oh the angst, I loved it, I loved the back and forth, the will they or won’t they, and for the love of all things holy, the sex scenes were fire! And again, Geneva Lee left me with one hell of a cliffhanger!
And again, the past/present alternatinating narrator was pulled off meticulously. Just when you thought the puzzle was coming together, there was even more to the story.
I thought my life was hell until the devil walked through my door. He wore a wicked smile and a familiar face. That day I looked into his blue eyes-the eyes of the only man I’ll ever love-and all I found was hatred.
