Olivia has overcome many challenges and disappointments in her life. Yet, when faced with an unexpected death of a family member, and witnessing the murder of someone she cares for, she isn’t sure she can survive. The losses incurred on this journey may cause her to pay the ultimate sacrifice. The return of Black and Kianna means the puzzle pieces of Angel’s life are finally locking into place. The picture is different than she envisioned. Angel must determine if uncovering the truth of their past, is worth the sacrifice of her new relationship. Kianna’s played dirty in the past, but this time the fight is deadly. She’s willing to go all in to expose the truth, which will cause everyone in the game to ante up. Will her sacrifice be more than she bargained for? Black’s gambled several times in the past, but this time the stakes are high. With his life and those of his family serving as the bargaining chips, it isn’t that easy to fold. To protect those he loves the most, he may have to sacrifice his own life to save theirs. Angel. Kianna. Black. In the end everyone must bear their cross. And the truth is so explosive, the House will never be the same. One will stand strong and walk away. One will stand strong and make the ultimate sacrifice. And one will stand strong and won’t survive!
In this last installment of the BeJeweled series we find Angel, Kianna and Black as the past catches up with them and can make or break them all. What they do will have a serious impact on the future.
There are lot’s of secondary characters that were so much fun to read about but what I really liked was, in some books a lot of characters are hard to keep up with but not so in these books. Chelle Ramsey has done a wonderful job creating a series that is seamless from book to book. Her writing is tight with well-developed characters. So much so I was talking to them as if they could hear me.I could also go on about some of the other characters but you should get the book and read about them for yourself. Great fun !!!
Do NOT miss out on this series as it is inspirational, romantic and more. She deals with domestic violence in a way that was done with care and sensitivity and gives resources that one may find helpful.
I highly recommend you buy this well written series, you will not be disappointed!
