5 Stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Wake and Dutch
I received a complimentary early release e-book prior to release and am voluntarily leaving a review.
This is the start of a brand new series and the star is Wake who we met in the previous series in Bram and Dory's book. The character of Dutch is brand new but she also has a connection to Bram and Dory.
I would call this book a dark romance. It centers around the crime of child abuse and molestation by authority figures and when we meet Wake we find out he killed 14 child predators which meant he ended up in jail but also, he was a hero to his town. One of the victims was his daughter and he has paid for his crimes by being in jail for the last 8 years.
Dutch is a child psychologist who cares maybe too much. She is introduced into Wake's world when she comes to him for advice. For him, he falls pretty instantly, and I loved how when he gets out, he starts to take care of and help Dutch even if she is not aware.
I loved Dutch a lot. I loved how caring she was with her patients and how well respected she is. I loved the relationship she forms with Wake's daughter, and I adored how she took care of Wake and he her.
This story is very different and that's one thing I love about this author. There are many surprises in this story on the path for love for Wake and Dutch.
Already obsessed with this new series!
Already obsessed with this new series! After getting to know both Wake and Dutch in the last book of the previous series, I was so excited for them to get their own stories – and even more ecstatic that they end up together! A modern-day superhero of sorts, Wake has been in prison for the past decade after going on a killing spree to protect his daughter, and his time is almost done. Dutch reaches out to Wake after finding out what he’s in prison for and looks to him for help to exact vengeance for a child that the system failed. Unable to stop thinking about each other, when Wake is a free man again, he has his sister look into Dutch and makes plans to make her his. Per usual with all of LLV’s other books, I loved this book, the plot, and these characters – I love how these two are able to build each other up and support each other while also helping them to grow and build together at the same time. While there are some parts of the storyline resolved, there is also a lot that is unanswered, although LLV does say it’s written this way and I love that we get suspense aspects that are both resolved in each book but also one that lasts throughout the entire series and gets wrapped up in the last installment. I can’t wait for the next book to get to know more of Wake’s cellmates and why they were let out of prison either early or entirely.
I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
