Hanging Pawns by Emersyn Vallis
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Mea and Josh are an unlikely couple from the start. She wants no ties and prefers to hide in the shadows, while Josh has a bigger than life persona. From the moment Josh meets Mea he can’t help but want to bring her out of her shell to show her the light and fun side of life.
My Review: 5 Stars
This is the second book in the Fated series and I absolutely loved it I breezed through reading it in a day. Adjournment took me a few days much longer and a lot going on. This story flow really well and goes back in time to introduce us the Mea and Josh and how they become a couple and part of the motley crew from friends from the previous book.
Mea’s home life was anything but ideal, coming from wealth you would think she had it all. But its quite the opposite. Mea’s family is cold, her mother uncaring and her father too weak to stop her from making Mea’s life miserable. Her sisters are cruel and shun her at every turn.
Josh brings a whole new world into Mea’s life, he makes her realize that life can be fun. She doesn’t have to be alone. His sweetness and love for Mea drew me in from the moment he skipped in line in front of her at the college in an effort to get her to talk to him.
We also get the McAllister triplets and their pranks against the not so innocent Morgan and Molly Chandler twins. I was also interested in poor Simon nursing his broken heart after leaving his one true love Sidney behind. Morgan and Molly and the guys take Mea into their fold of friends and chaos without question. I loved the fun they all seem to have.
The story is not without heartbreak when Mea is confronted by the harshness of her family’s rejection. But Josh and her new found family of Morgan, Molly and the triplets help to get her through the devastation.
This was truly my favorite of the series so far, it answers some of my questions from the first book that had left me a little confused. Gain this author doesn’t write as much sexual heat in her books as I usually like but this series doesn’t need it. The heat that is there is well written. I look forward to seeing how these guys and gals end up.
