One epic love. Two wounded souls. Three impossible words.
Ripped away from each other by circumstances beyond their control. Reunited in a place they never expected. Separated but never quite apart.
“You’re still the only woman I see. The only woman I need. I know you’re in there somewhere, sweet Caroline. We’re going to find you and we’re going to help you, until you come home to me where you belong. Then we’re going to finish what we started. Together.”
Her confidence shattered, Caroline finally starts to deal with what happened at The Fed. Jack is determined to convince her that she’s more than she thinks she is. That she wasn’t destroyed by her experiences. That their relationship is worth the fight. But will he give up before it’s too late?
Phoenix is the fourth installment in The Bellator Saga. It should be read after the first three novels in the series.
FIVE STARS *****
If you’ve read a Cecilia London novel before, you know she kidnaps the reader into a fascinating world where you never know what to expect. Her writing style is smart, sensual and very raw. With this fourth installment of The Bellator Saga, she’s out to shatter your heart in the most delicious way and I was a glutton for punishment, the more my heart hurt the more I wanted to keep reading.
Our heroine Caroline has been through such devastation and pain, that she is left with nothing but a goal to reinvent herself. She’s picking up the pieces from the ashes that remain from the dark explosion that used to be her life. She’s lost so much, only bitter pain remain inside her. She no longer allows herself to get attached to anything or anyone. Rage is her new religion, the only thing she believes in, even when she finds herself in the presence of Jack, again.
Jack can’t contain his love and emotions the moment he realizes the miracle in front of him. His sweet Caroline is back; but when he looks into the eyes of his love he hardly recognizes her. As the days go by, he waits to make his move to reclaim his wife, but every time he tries to get close, hate is the only thing he gets from her. His heart breaks a little more each time. His devastation lays in the fact that no matter what he does, nothing seems to help Caroline find her way back to him, to her. She’s lost in a dark sea of hate and resentment and he is losing his mind trying unsuccessfully to pull her back.
I’m not going to lie, this is a very hard novel to read, but inside all the pain and darkness, there was still a ray of hope, a very faint light that guides the reader through this magnificent story, where the main star is a fierce love like no other. A love that is so powerful, that can build you up and bring you down to your knees, but I personally wouldn’t have it any other way.
Complex and intoxicating this story has branded me, making me a loyal fan of Jack and Caroline, for life. I’ll tell you, six books will not be enough for me. I will keep these books as gems inside the jewelry box of books in my heart; The Bellator Saga is truly a treasure.
