Pleasure by Alisa Woods
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I admit to being very scared for Jak and Ariana when the last book ended. After snubbing their noses at Ariana’s mate and Jak’s alpha’s brother, it seemed like this series should have ended abruptly when they came home smelling like each other. Lucky for us, they were both smarter than me, and immediately showered and changed when they got back. Lucky for them, Mace was out while they did this.
Ariana is still stuck in her horrible situation, being essentially raped on a daily basis. It was tough to read in the first book and it is probably even tougher now that it’s very clear she is not consenting. These two star-crossed lovers really have their work cut out for them and that’s probably what pushes Jak to take some drastic action. After all we learned about witches in the previous series, I would think he would be more than hesitant to approach one for help. I guess this shows exactly how desperate Jak is to be with his would-be mate.
This installment ends on a sort-of cliffhanger, with us unsure how these two lovebirds will ever find a way to be together. I’m really hoping the next book shows more Jak and Ariana and way less rapey awfulness.
