Once upon a time, there was a beautiful princess who called a corrupt kingdom home sweet home.
Protected and sheltered from the worst the world had to offer, she fell in love with the crumbling city that burned and blazed around her. Every dirty corner, every scary shadow, found a place within her heart. So did a man who was violent and dangerous, just like the streets she claimed as her own.
He was all business and brutality, except when it came to her. With her, he was calm, caring, and heartbreakingly patient.
He warned her over and over that he wasn't the man for her, but she refused to listen. She never expected either the streets or their enforcer to hurt her, since she'd given her heart so completely to both.
She should have known the streets in the Point were always going to be savage, and so was the man committed to keeping control of them in the hands of criminals and bloody kingpins.
Blindsided by a betrayal which cut so deeply she was sure the wounds would never heal, the princess fled the home she loved and the man who broke her heart. Throwing away her rusted, twisted crown was supposed to help her forget. All it did was make her long for everything she left behind. She told herself she would never go back, but in this tormented kingdom, family is everything. Eventually, she has no choice but to return.
While she was gone, the people who loved her worked hard to make the city safe, and the man who destroyed her sank deeper into the darkness. Going back shouldn't feel like surrender... but it does. As this pretty princess hovers on the edge of the unknown, the past attacks with a vengeance. It's a good reminder that puppy love eventually grows up and turns into something with sharp teeth and one hell of a bite.
She never asked for the keys to the kingdom. She'd much rather go out and build her own.

This is one of those books that are hard to review. Not that there was something about it that I didn't like, or that I need to wrap my head around it, or any of the other reasons people usually say that. Nope, in this case, the author wanted to make sure early reviewers had read the other stories in The Breaking Point as this one wraps up a lot of loose ends and closes up stories so it's not really a standalone.

So, while I disagree that this is not able to be read as a standalone (I have read the other titles, but it's been a couple of years and 500+ books and I was still right where I needed to be with the story) so I am going to say it's great if you have read the others but absolutely not something that you have to have done.

Booker is not a nice guy. In fact, he spends a lot of time telling Karsen this. When she is 17, 18 and again 4 years later. But, she doesn't listen. And, well, he doesn't really want her to...and that is most of his problem. It's great to watch him come to admit to himself what he wants, to watch her struggle with their past, and the one night that pushed her away, and come to grips with it. In a lot of ways, this book is about forgiveness, about knowing a person and understanding them, and allowing them to be who they are.

This book is dark, it's twisty. It's got some stuff in it that some people just won't like. But, if you have read any of the other books, you know that is what The Point is too. A dark, unforgiving landscape that breeds anger, hostility and hopelessness. Or does it? Maybe it gives a little hope, and a place to start healing, for some people who need to do just that.

I am not going to say more about the plot, but I can say that I loved the ending, I loved the hopeful end, the happiness for the characters and their life. It literally left me both fulfilled and wanting more.

I recommend this title.
