Review: Phoenix by Cecilia London

Phoenix by Cecilia London
Phoenix (Bellator Saga #4) by Cecilia London
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Release: May 2, 2016
Length: 414 pages

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.

How I felt while reading this book???

drink

And yet I gave this book 5 stars. I'd give it more if I could. Because as much as I felt like I absolutely hated Caroline here, my sympathy for her was unavoidable. Because as much as her words and actions absolutely appalled and disgusted me, they were REAL. Cecilia London did a remarkable job of illustrating Caroline's PTSD and how it affected herself and others.

There were so many times I really wanted to hurt Caroline.

Ok. I mean really hurt her. That right there ^^^ was too cute to resist.

hit

Or something like that.

She broke my freaking heart people!! But that's truly a testament to the author's skill. Because I felt E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G!! Even Jack's reactions seemed real. He tried so hard to remain strong, stoic, unwavering. But sometimes it was too much and I felt it every time he came close to breaking.

stoic

This book ends on one hell of a cliffy. Caroline and Jack's relationship still hangs in the balance. She's off on a dangerous mission for the rebellion. I cannot WAIT to see what happens next in Rhapsody.
