Product Review (submitted on June 23, 2016):
Only Jillian Verne could have pulled off this book. I expected to like it - I loved her other Masters of Order novels - but I’m not usually a fan of Rock Star romances or extensive flashbacks. This is totally the exception to the rule. Although it qualifies as glitterkink - it takes place in New York and Paris among the uber-wealthy - it is so much more. Eva and Teo broke my heart and made me smile, often within a few paragraphs. Moving between their teenage years and adult reunion, Jillian weaves a riveting story of two people struggling to love each other while growing up and getting past their demons. They fail, succeed, fail, and succeed again. Mix in a truly wretched villain (Edmund needs to meet a GRR Martin quality justice) and some of my favorite characters from the other books in the series (I really want Darion to get his own novel) and you have a holy wow, 5-star read.
