This book picks right up a few days after the crazy cliffhanger in book 2. Mia is left in pieces after what Cade did to her and it was super frustrating seeing her go through all the emotions of the aftermath. Seeing her break piece by piece but I loved seeing how Bexley was there for her.

That boy would not leave her side and when he was forced to, it nearly broke him. But he never gives up hope that she will somehow heal not only physically but mentally. This book…wow…it definitely ties up all the loose ends and it’s a crazy ride. I loved seeing old characters as well. What an emotional trilogy this has been and I loved every minute of it. The part I wasn’t crazy about was the ending. Ugh…what a freaking let down. All this build up, all this carefully laid and planned out plot to build up our hate and anger that was oozing from every pore to be ready to cheer and that. That. What was that?

Part of me gets why the author went where she did. But come on. Alllllllllllll of what has happened leads to that? What a disappointment. I know I’m not alone here either based on other reviews I have read. Great books but not a fan of the end.

1. Don’t ask any personal questions.

2. Don’t show up at her house unannounced.

3. Don’t ever, ever let anyone know you’re friends.

For three years, I followed the rules. Vicky and I met once a week at the diner where I worked. I was her slice of normalcy, she was the one person I could confide in. It might have been unconventional, but it worked for us.

One night, all hell broke loose and I got caught up in a battle of bloodshed where we almost lost our lives. I ended up face to face with Vicky’s dangerous older brothers. Anthony, William, and Nicholas Civella–the made men of the Kansas City Mob.

After fighting for my life and proving myself worthy, they brought me into their deadly world. It was glamorous but twisted. Torture, death, and crime followed me everywhere I went, chiseling away at parts of me until I wasn’t the same anymore.

Slowly, I betrayed my best friend, and fell in love.

Chances are they’ll ruin me. This thing between us has deadly consequences. But in this criminal world, I’m learning that the rules don’t apply when you’re the boss.

So. Damn. Good! I’ve needed a little dark and depraved in my life and this book did not disappoint! Absolutely worth the wait for sure. I was even surprised with a little unexpected treat that made me love this book even harder. I won’t say what that treat is of course. Just read it!

This book had a few major twists and turns that had me reeling a bit. The characters are super intense and strong. No wishy washy back and forth crap here folks! If you’re in, you’re in…
No out.

Damn good read with a smoking hot Alpha male to melt your socks off. Don’t miss it! One of my favorites!

Excerpt

“Game isn’t over until the final buzzer sounds,” Maddox points out.

“That’s right,” Zaid says confidently. “We have nineteen days until the new moon. Anything can happen.”

“One thing must happen,” I say, setting my sandwich down as I slowly scan around the island so I can meet every eye. “We have to go rescue Zora. Now.”

No one says a word.

They all have varying opinions, and they stay silent because we’ve hashed them all out already.

Carrick, the one who has been the most skeptical of my sister, breaks the silence. “Agreed. That has to be our priority.”

Rainey looks appalled, but everyone else is immediately accepting as evidenced by their nods and determined expressions. She sees it, too, so she says nothing.

“Everyone should be relatively safe here,” Carrick continues. “Without the Blood Stone in residence, there’s no reason for Kymaris to assault us here. She’s made enough references to settling the score with Finley on the ritual battlefield, so to speak, that I think it’s safe here.”

“Plus, she’s in hiding,” Myles points out. “Along with all her minions.”

“I’ll reach out to Kaesar,” Boral says from the end of the counter where he’d parked his stool beside Maddox. “The worst that will happen is he won’t answer my calls.”

Being able to get inside information now is a long shot. Boral was invaluable through his connection to Kaesar, but I suspect everyone in Kymaris’ camp is keeping their heads down and circling the wagons tight.

But that doesn’t mean Boral’s useless.

I lean in his direction, having to look past Rainey and Myles to do so. “You’re our expert on the Underworld. You’ll have to be the one who guides us.”

Boral nods. “As I told you when we were in Micah’s realm, I’ll be glad to help.”

For the first time since I can remember, Zaid doesn’t scoff at something his father says. He’s normally extremely dubious of Boral’s intentions, and he never minds being vocal about it. Instead, he just studies his father with an almost detached curiosity, as if he might believe that some good can come from the Dark Fae.

“Should we go in through Micah’s realm?” Carrick’s lower hand comes to my back, perhaps as a quiet means of support that he doesn’t mind me taking the lead on the planning, or, more likely, because he just wants to touch me. Regardless, I like it.

Boral considers my question. “What you have to know about the Underworld is it is so vast that you could travel through it for a hundred years and not see it all. The Underworld is even more vast than the Earth realm.”

I blink in surprise, thinking of the time I projected into Zora through a dream. It seemed like a massively big city inside an even larger underground cave, but I hadn’t considered there was more.

“The Crimson River leads to The Pit, which is close to Kymaris’ castle. It would be easy to get there, but then how would you even find your sister?”

My heart sinks as I realize our first obstacle is a doozy. “When I projected into her during the dream, the city she was in was near The Pit. I could see the glow of it from there.”

Boral’s smile is grim. “That’s the city of Otaxis. One of the largest. Making it there isn’t the problem. Searching through the thousands of Dark Fae to find your sister will be, though.”

Growling in frustration, I lean away from the counter and cross my arms over my chest. I stare blankly at the rest of my sandwich before turning to Carrick. “I can contact her again. Tell her we’re coming.”

“And put her on notice, so she has monsters waiting for you when you arrive?” Rainey says mildly. She’s clearly still against this plan.

“I’m going to be a human walking in the Underworld,” I say as I glance her way. “It’s going to be dangerous no matter what.”

“You’ll have two demi-gods at your side,” Maddox points out. “Our combined magic alone should give us somewhat of a safe passage.”

It’s something I haven’t been all that worried about.

My safety in the Underworld, that is.

I’ve been so focused on getting Zora out that I had not stopped to consider how I’d do it without getting killed. I am quite literally stepping into Hell, and I will be walking among the most evil of creatures.

The Insiders by Tijan ~ Blog Tour w/ 4.25 Star Review!

“Obsessed from page one! Another addicting read from Tijan.”
— Jennifer L. Armentrout, #1 New York Times bestselling author

The Insiders, an all new page-turning and addictive romance from New York Times bestselling author Tijan, is available now!

Bailey is as normal as could be, with a genius IQ and a photographic memory. But still, normal for her. Then, things happen — a guy breaks into her house in the middle of the night to take her hostage. She learns her father is billionaire tech genius Peter Francis, the same guy she’s idolized all her life. She finds all this out when she meets dark, mysterious, and electrifying Kashton Colello. He’s also an associate of her father’s, and he gives Bailey two choices—go with him and meet her father or survive on her own because those kidnappers are going to try again. 

It’s a no-brainer.

After this, three things become clear for Bailey:

1.   She has to live at her father’s sprawling estate, complete with bodyguards and the best security that money can buy.

2.   She’s no longer an only child. She has three siblings and has no idea what to do with them and vice versa.

3.   She is being guarded by Kash himself. Personally guarded. And there is a lot of guarding going on there and some of it is going to drive her crazy.

A complete outsider in a world of wealth and decadence, Bailey has to find her way within a family that has more secrets than she could have imagined. One of these secrets could be deadly…

A very interesting start to this new adult trilogy with intrigue, kidnapping, secret families and ruthless enemies. Bailey was a quirky sort of character…book smart but naïve in the ways of the depraved and spoiled rich. She grew up with a single mother as struggling middle class and is thrown into a life where no one wants her and she doesn’t belong. I liked her even though she frustrated me when she let herself be used time and time again. Kash was a mystery. And I grew to LOVE him. He’s protective and keeps everything very closed in so he doesn’t burden or endanger anyone else. And then you have the secret family. All of them unique in their own way and the more that’s revealed…the more you wonder what MORE is out there. This first book was mostly developing the characters and setting the scene. LOTS of angst. The emotions just poured out of the pages and I can tell that we are going to be in for a hell of a ride. And I’ve buckled myself in and I’m ready to ride this rollercoaster until the end.

Excerpt

We were heading out of Chicago, and maybe another half hour or so from the small town where my mom and I lived.

Wait. Second thought—where we used to live?

What would my mom do now? Could Chrissy Hayes remain in that house after I was just attacked, almost taken hostage? I called my mother by all kinds of names—Chrissy Hayes, Chrissy, or Mom. Or, well, a whole other kind of names too, because to say she’s a character is putting it mildly. And we have an interesting relationship to say the least.

I might be deflecting here.

Numb. I was numb. I should be pissing my pants, but instead I’m ruminating over how I refer to my mother.

Could I stay in that house after what just happened?

I’d been planning to spend time with Chrissy, helping with the house and working at the local computer store to make some extra money before I left for school. But now . . . fuck if I knew.

Myriad curses went through my mind as I realized Chrissy would have to move.

Shivers pierced me as I went over what had happened tonight, but then we were pulling into a driveway, next to a booth. A large gate barricaded us from moving forward.

Official police business, my tech ass.

Then again, nothing seemed official. I was told that I was being taken to my mother, but I left with two detectives. Bright and Wilson. They introduced themselves, then said she couldn’t see me in the hospital. They didn’t explain why, but I was to go with them to see her.

I went.

I was in the backseat of their unmarked car a few minutes later.

Bright’s window rolled down. She flashed her badge. “We’re expected.”

The attendant nodded, hitting a button. The gate opened, showing a campus of buildings behind it. Some made of dark red brick. Some seemingly made of reflective windows, top to bottom. Some painted totally black. A large parking lot sat in the middle of the buildings. “Phoenix Tech” was on a sign in front of the first building, but we went past, heading around it and toward a smaller building on the opposite end of the lot.

My tongue was glued to the back of my throat. We were at Phoenix Tech headquarters.

I had yearned to get an internship there every year since fifth grade, and then through college. I kept applying, but they kept denying. Some might say I was being desperate. I prefer determined. It’s a quality that I feel is honorable. Plus, I wasn’t above hoping they’d take pity on me one day. It worked, because while I might not have been good enough to walk their hallways, I was good enough for them to give me charity. They awarded me the majority of my grants for undergrad, so I’d been able to go to college debt free. I’d been expecting that to change for graduate school, but it hadn’t. Or, well, it kind of had.

I was hired as a graduate assistant, starting in the fall, which gave me a stipend, but the rest was covered by another scholarship from Phoenix Tech.

Phoenix Tech was one of the world’s leading companies on cyber security. I was going into information systems, which was close enough. A job here would be a dream.

“My mom is here?” I asked, when Bright parked, and both her and Wilson got out of the vehicle.

Neither answered.

Bright opened my back door and motioned for me, slipping her sunglasses over her eyes. “It’s time for you to find out some answers.”

It’s made all the harder by knowing exactly who the perfect man for me is: my super hot, incredibly kind, and extremely taken friend Austin. What’s a girl to do but drown her troubles in pinot and let her bestie open her an account on a dating app?
