Goodreads Summary

When she was sold to Master Elliot Lyon of House Chimera, Fawn could have never imagined he was the same person as Elliot, the man beneath a well placed mask. A victim. Just like her. She would have never thought he was grooming her for the Wolf she’d already escaped once. That he planned to deliver her to the beast’s jaws in exchange for his wife. Master Jäger will stop at nothing to have her—even if that means using others as collateral. With more than just their lives on the line, Fawn must become someone else, and Master Lyon distances himself further from Elliot as her transfer looms.
The roots of the Order run deep within them, but Fawn is beginning to realize another bond has formed between her and her Owner, a man she vowed to destroy along with the rest of their tangled branches.
In a world where trust is just a tool and love isn’t meant for people like them, Fawn is determined to beat the powerful at their own elaborate games of make-believe. Even the man who Owns her.

My Review:

This is the second book in the Order series by Nikki Rae. You can read my review of the first book Bloom here.

I was lucky enough to have this book after I finished the first one. The first book of this series ended in an extreme cliffhanger so I was able to keep going. And I did. It took me less than 24 hours to finish both books and I cannot wait for the third! Nikki Rae did it again. After Bloom I was in complete shock and had so many conflicting emotions. I couldn’t believe Master Lyon was willing to trade Violet back to Master Jager in exchange for his wife (to be honest I was just shocked he had a wife!)

Like the first book, Bloom, Nikki Rae pulled me in from the beginning. It picks up right at the end of Bloom and I think that makes it easier to follow Violet’s POV. Rae is able to explain Violet’s emotions almost perfectly and without dragging it out. Most books I have to read several sentences before I truly know what the character is thinking or feeling. 

The biggest conflict I have on this book is the wife/girlfriend (not sure how to label Violet) issue. The romance between Violet and Elliot was definitely more heated in this book but I think that’s to be expected in the second book of a series like this. However close they got or in this case wanted to get it can’t lead anywhere because Elliot is married and he’s willing to trade violet to the wolf of Violet’s past. The whole book I was rooting for them. I wanted them to work and be together because they complimented each other so well but as I was reading I started to think about his wife and how no matter how much I wanted them together she was still his slave. 

I don’t want to spoil the ending so I will leave it at this, I am extremely happy with the way this turned out. I love how strong Violet was throughout the whole book but she really showed her strength at the end. 

While this is a hard series to read and really tests your emotions I am beyond thankful I’ve read it and cannot wait for the third book. It’s been a long time since I’ve read a book where the main character is a woman who is incredibly strong. While she falls in love with her master, she still puts herself first and she thinks about how to fix/distance herself from the situation she’s in. Thank you Nikki Rae for introducing me to Violet and I cannot wait to read the rest of her story!
