“It was not my kind of book, obviously. A romance novel would have kept me up into the wee hours of the morning, never quite turning the pages fast enough while also trying desperately to savor each tension-filled interaction between the hero and heroine.”

“Acta non verba… Actions, not words.”

4.5/5 ⭐️! Again, could not put this book down, even more so than KOTW. If you enjoyed the first book in this series, you’ll like the second one more! Who doesn’t love that Emilia loves reading romance novels as much as the rest of us? Also, how adorable is it that Wrath always claims that he won’t coddle Emilia, but continues to do so and pays such close attention to her likes/dislikes and wants/desires? More of my questions from KOTW were answered in this book, but I feel like the end left me again with more questions that what I started with! Also, sometimes in this book, I felt like Emilia was so dumb, I just wanted to shake her. But otherwise love this series and can’t wait for book #3 ( )

This rating is a tough one. On the one hand... the writing was solid, the background building was decent and the premise was interesting. YET... the pacing was erratic, the characters were trite and vapid and the tension well... the ping-ponging back and forth... is he interested? Is he not? Will they? Won't they? Should they? Should they steer way clear? ... it wasn't sensual as I imagine the author was aiming for... it was more of a headache inducing, sexually impotent annoyance. I remember finding Wrath and Emilia's sexual tension exciting in the last book but now it's just... a boring, travesty of tropey clichés. If I found myself inundated with an overabundance of spare time, I might finish this book solely on the merits of its writing but alas... my free time is finite (and miniscule to boot) so I will put this one on the back burner but if I'm being completely honest, I'll probably skip revisiting it in the future... what a shame, after book #1 I was REALLY looking forward to this read.
