I have read every book that Ms. Taylor has on Amazon. So I'm pretty invested in her as an author. Zahir was just OK. And so was Holt for that matter. More like a 2.5 but I will give it a 3.
The book was flowing regularly until we got to the training part. The training part made it interesting (Although I rolled my eyes at more BDSM, seriously, no more BDSM in everything, authors). I thought it was building up to something. But then it went from training to boom everything is ok now cause we are sex pals. She totally lost her drive and dignity. He barely seemed to tolerate her, always having a temper tantrum when she did something small but then suddenly everything is cool, let's go to America. Oooooo.....k.
Then it gets confusing. So I understand the drama part between the h, the twins, and their moms. It gets confusing when the building blows up. OK why? Who? How? For what reason? Is it because he wants to actually complete it? It had been there this whole time. Why even through this at the tail end of the book if you were not going to expand on it? Cause you really left Aisha (and her mom) hanging. Like oh she died, oh well. Zahir leaves Prin and goes back to Jawahar. They were apart for what 6 months and during this time even though he barely seemed to tolerate her actions,
had abandoned her without any word as to why, definitely did not seem to love her, and hardly seemed to grudgingly like her-- totes falls for her and gives up his whole kingdom to his totally inexperienced brother. Who although loved music just randomly and conveniently for the couple, decides to take over. And then it just ends with some stupid over the top cringe stage proclamation. No epilogue. So we don't know what happens to the twins? why is Zahir into BDSM? what happens to the wreckage? where do they go now that he is CEO billionaire (convenient for him) of the company? what they do with the remodeled house? what happens to the kingdom? how is his brother managing?
Flashforward to me, being scared for how Luca will turn out. If all that nonsense that I just said seemed stupid and confusing its because it was and super rushed. If you want Luca and Amber off your mind (you detailed then in Holt and Zahir) then just put their book out. I'm invested in Luca and Amber, have been since I read their story in Breaking Bad. Now I'm scared to read it. You've been building it up for 3 books now and with the way Zahir and Holt were, it might come out crappy.
