Seven years ago, Ana Parry walked into Chastity Falls Academy and changed the lives of Jackson Pierce and Braiden Donohue. Her arrival set into motion a series of events that none of them could have ever predicted.
But they got out.
Escaping Chastity Falls, they left behind a life built on lies and secrets, danger and fear.
… Didn’t they?
Penance will be served, promises will be made.
Welcome to the end of Chastity Falls.
MY THOUGHTS: This is a novella, so it is a quick read – but there is a lot packed into this quick read. There’s sweet love, some dirty love, some danger & violence, and a little bit of suspense. This book follows up with Ana & Jackson, as well as Braiden & Cara; we meet both of these couples in the previous Chastity Falls books. I loved how the author switched the POV between all of them. It really helped the reader to delve deeper into the characters thoughts, so we can better understand their actions.
If you haven’t read the previous books in the series you might be a little lost to begin with, but I think the author does a great job of catching us up without retelling the entire story. I had only read the first book, Loyalty and Lies, but I was able to follow the story line well enough in this book. However, now that they’re being released as a boxed set.. I might have to check that out so I can read all of them!
