5 out of 5 stars
5 stars – I loved it!

After the ending of the previous book, I have been eagerly waiting to get my hands on this one to find out how West will save Stallion Ridge. From the very beginning, I was hooked on this story. West is a very interesting and troubled centaur who feels like he has let his brother down. West was a deadly fighter and could be heartless when he needed to be, but he also was extremely protective of his family. 

Gin has been another mysterious character in this series. He has been Leo’s bodyguard and has helped contain Lucas when he was a rampaging Manticore. Like West, he also is struggling with his past actions or lack thereof.  I was pleasantly surprised to learn that Gin is possessive of what he considers his. It’s always the quiet ones who surprise you. 

These two had a very intense relationship filled with sword fights, giant beasts, and some kinky sexy times. Their relationship was also very emotional because they had to accept their pasts and present actions, and sometimes go against their ideas of honor to do the right thing. I just loved these two and their enemies-to-lovers relationship. 

For the battle at Stallion Ridge, it was as action packed and intense as I was expecting, also very emotional, which was a bit expected after all of Sky’s warnings. I think this was a great ending for this series, even if it was a bit sad.  I do hope she writes more short stories within this world though because I am not ready to let these men go.
