Yes, again. Same rating. I can't help it! This one was brilliant in that it switched to Mariss' POV, which was great, but then I started feeling like Sebastian was a big ass a lot. First, I felt Mariss was unreasonable, then Bassy. Wow, I can't make up my mind.
Firstly, the writing and dialog were superb of course. I do love the dirty, witty comments these two make to each other. They have great chemistry and it's amazing.
The part I'm having issues with is kind of how the Holden thing came about (and that's all I can give without spoilers guys) as well as the other major issue. I feel horrible for Mariss, but I can't help but feel that she should have been having more than 'feelings' before. *sigh* These two are amazing together and I love them together - Bassy and Mariss - but again, I had some issues with this not being my typical type of romance.
Plus Sebastian's double standard jealousy was a pain. Geez. Yet, he never got really jealous before when the three of them were together. So it's a tad inconsistant I think. Just a bit.
However, as always, excellent plot and excellently written. I'm just not usually into a series quite like this. In fact, it might be a unique experience for me. Nicely done and realistic though! 3.5 stars!
