MY REVIEW FOR EMBER:
Well, once again- Rachel has blown me away and stolen my heart!! Phoenix- holy hell, how that boy breaks my heart. The one member of the family that truly had to strive for his own internal personal redemption, the one who truly suffered through everything- finally, FINALLY, gets his HEA. And what an HEA it was!!
Phoenix and Bee's story is now my solid favorite. Without a doubt. Those two- they slay me. Their constant struggle to overcome their feelings, the pain that they both endured while trying to deny themselves- it broke me. I understood the terrible, utterly horrific things that Phoenix had done in his past- I remember them well. That said, I knew that he had served his penance. Even if he didn't. The pain that he put himself through- it guts you. And Bee- oh how I love her!! What a spitfire- even if she had been sheltered for her entire life. She had such an inner fire, it burned so bright, that there was really nothing that could keep Phoenix from her. It was like a moth to the flame. He never stood a chance. And Bee made sure that he knew it- that he knew that she wasn't going anywhere- no matter how hard he pushed.
Of course, we have plenty of the rest of the family mixed into the saga- because really, it just wouldn't be a story without them!! And finally- we get a sweet little miracle added into the family- from the ones that we all least expected.
To be short- I am in LOVE with this book- I cannot even find another way to describe it. Just pure adoration for Phoenix and Bee, and of course, for Rachel. Her books are insanely phenomenal, and I am honored to be a part of their advance reading and tours. I have given all of Rachel's books (that I have read), 5 huge stars- and Ember is NO exception. This one ranks right up there in my top faves- and as much as I look forward to Sergio's story- it kills me, because I hate to think of the end of this series.
