Ethan Holt used to be a train wreck in drama school. An avalanche that emotionally destroyed Cassie and left her completely heartbroken. Now 3 years later, Ethan is back, claiming he is finally ready for a commitment. But even though connection like Cassie and Ethan have doesn't come along more than a once in a life time, will Cassie be able to put her heart on the line for the third time?
Written in past/present alternating chapters, Mrs. Raven once again offers passionate character-driven story about couple with one of the strongest chemistry ever created on the pages. Sexual tension in this series is so thick that you can taste it. Emotions are so powerful that you can feel being touched and affected by them yourself. This is how memorable contemporary love story is being written.
But what is the most praiseworthy aspect of this novel? The way author crafted the main protagonists and gave them this touch of realistic people with their strengths and flaws. I loved Ethan's transition from scared boy with issues to real man Cassie deserved. It was made in very believable way, kudos to author for that. This new version of Ethan is so adorably lovable that you can't help but cheer for him no matter what stupid decision he had made in the past. And Cassie? Her POV makes you feel like she is the most open and honest character ever, baring her soul to all who are willing to read her story. Mrs. Rayven made it very easy for me to connect with Cassie and fully understand all her decisions and feelings.
Beside great character development and unforgettable romance, this book reproduces amazingly realistic atmosphere of drama school and gives readers detailed insight into all acting connected. And let me tell you, it's one of the most fascinating things I have ever read about and it definitely helps to make this series stand out from other contemporary romances.
If you haven't started this series yet, I cannot recommend it enough. First book (Bad Romeo) is already out since December 2014 and this sequel is being released next week so what are you waiting for?
