My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Lucca was made the underboss, being what nightmares are made of.
Chloe was scarred by her past, learning too young that nightmares are real.
He has waited long enough to claim her soul, but he must take it from the devil first.
Her soul might have been better off claimed by the devil.
The only way to save her from her past is to delve into his.
The world as she knows it will come crashing down.
I’m the fu**ing boogieman.
I’m just a fu**ing freak.
Sarah Brianne...I bow down to thee
You are my master and I your willing servant.
I must bow down to the master. Sarah Brianne has done it again, and in the process, left me speechless.
I freely admit that after reading Chloe, I was firmly team Amo. I was willing to trust the master and her plan, but I knew Lucca would have to convince me that he was right for Chloe and that she was right for him. So going into this book, I was both extremely excited and petrified. What happened if I didn’t feel it!? What if I remained Team Amo!? What would I do!?!?!?!?! Good news…I fell in love with Luca in the prologue, and was sold on his feelings for Chloe. It took me slightly longer to feel her feelings for him, but it did happen.
I lived for Lucca’s POVs. I didn’t think it was possible, but he struck such a cord with me that he had me laughing, crying and he had my heart pounding. The depth of emotion that Sarah Brianne poured into Lucca was simply breathtaking. I mean that quite literally. At one point I felt my breath catch and my eyes tear up and all I wanted was him to walk out of my kindle and into my arms. I had to admit this, because I don’t want it to be true…but she did it. The Maestro topped the best guy in the world, and actually made me angry at my favorite book
I’m not quite sure what it says about me that I love guys *cough*Nero & Lucca*cough* that go around beating people up and killing them for hurting their women….but I seriously got a huge case of the feels every time Lucca talked about his plan to avenge what had been done to Chloe.
After reading Chloe, I was skeptical that Lucca and Chloe were right for each other. But I was wrong. The connection they had was simply amazing. The care and understanding Lucca had for her was breathtaking. They way he went out of his way to make her comfortable and get her to trust him...perfection. And when it was revealed the depth of Lucca's feelings for her, I couldn't help but agree that he deserved everything he wanted and that I wanted him and Chloe to get a HEA.
Don’t even get me started on the lengths Lucca went to in order to protect Chloe. I loved how protective he was, how he was constantly on guard, and trying to keep her safe. There were quite a few scenes that overlapped with other books in the series, and I loved that because we got to see it from Lucca’s POV and what was going through his head during those scenes.
I was simply blown away by this book. This will definitely go down as my favorite book of the year, hands down. I know that no other book will top this. I can’t wait to see what Sarah Brianne comes out with next.
