See you at Christmas!
The words are still burning a hole in Evie Evans' mind and undergarments. Not that she really has time to think about it. Not with the world ending, as always, and the kids' school starting back up.
But when Evie and the team stumble upon something no one expected, her and Servario are reunited much sooner than anticipated. Only the reunion is not the one they had planned.
Once again she finds herself in the arms of the bad guy and making alliances with the wrong side.
Stay tuned for the exciting second novel in The Single Lady Spy series!
The End of Games
Click here to read my review on The End of Me
It literally starts off with a bang. You get action and suspense in the very first chapter, while in The End of Me it took a while to get to the really good stuff. In the first book, Evie comes across a little broken and weak in the beginning and it isn’t until near the end of the book she finds her old self again. With this one, however, she starts off strong as ever and I am a total fan. She is forced to go back into basic training to get her strength back after an attack on her home and near death experience. After that, nothing stops this woman! When you think she’s a goner, the next second she proves you wrong and she’s whooping some dude’s ass. I FREAKING LOVED IT!
And here she is ladies…
Needless to say, I couldn’t put this down for even a second. I mean, how could I not? Did you just read that excerpt?! And don’t even get me started on Servario and Coop. As we know from the first book, Servario was Evie’s main love interest (with a hint of Coop added in), but in this book, Evie makes a choice that she thinks is better for her. She loves him, but at the same time she hates him and can’t trust him. Heck, I can’t even trust him. I still have no clue what side he’s really on, what his true feelings for Evie are, and what his ultimate goal is. He does something to Evie that is unforgivable and I was actually shocked. With Coop, he’s a bit easier to understand and seems like the better choice for Evie and her children. I’m interested to see the direction Tara Brown takes this love triangle because both men have kindness and some weakness to them. One shows his a bit more, but it doesn’t mean the other is completely cold-hearted.
I’m usually a fan for the bad boys, so obviously I’m on Team Servario, but I do like Coop almost as much. He has his dickhead moments where you want to throat punch him, so he isn’t necessarily the “nice guy” in the love triangle. I’d just consider him to be the one that isn’t a criminal.
“Don’t apologize, it pisses me off more. You piss me off. I can’t believe you stayed the night with him. Why? You like getting used like a slut by the bad guys of the world?”
The more you read, the more you find out about the Burrow and new players come into the mix. No one is who you think they are and every time you think you have figured something out, you are thrown one more curveball. It can be a little confusing and I had to re-read some parts, but the more that is exposed, the more you understand. Like I said before, this wasn’t as hard to follow as the first book because you already know the key characters.
I loved the suspense, the non-stop thrills, the humor, the action, and the fact that there are two love interests. This is one of my favorite series so far and I have a feeling that the next book will be even better than this one. So far, Tara Brown has exceeded my expectations and I have no doubt I will be thrilled with what she comes up with next. The Spring of 2014 can’t come fast enough!
