Review: RECKONING by Jessica Ruben

June 24, 2018

Reckoning by Jessica Ruben
Vincent: Forgetting about Eve was the plan. Finding her at a party on my college campus was the last thing I expected.

But letting her go again isn’t an option—not this time. Juggling the life I want with the one I was born into may be near impossible, but for her, it's a risk I'm willing to take.

My world has turned into a house of cards, where one wrong move can send it all crashing down…and us with it.

Eve: Finally at a prestigious university—and on the path to living my dreams—I’ve left the darkness of the Blue Houses behind. Still, a whole new host of problems await me.

Vincent is here.

He's king of the school, complete with a society princess by his side. I thought I wanted to know what he was hiding, but unlocking his biggest secret leads me into entirely new territory laced with danger
and I’m not sure I’ll survive.

RECKONING is book two of the Vincent and Eve Trilogy. You will need to read RISING, book one in the Vincent and Eve trilogy, in order to enjoy this sexy and heart pounding romance.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

After Eve put two and two together at the end of Rising, I had no idea where this story was going to lead me. She now knows that Vincent is the son of the most dangerous man in New York, a mafia prince, AND he happens to go to the same college as her. ANDDDDD he’s got a girlfriend. Getting over him is now next to impossible, with him virtually around every corner on campus, and the moment they meet again, Vincent has no intention of letting her get away again.

I could finally see what was really developing between Eve and Vincent, all thanks to getting his POV. I wanted to shake Eve sometimes because she acted quite spineless and immature, but then again, she was in Vincent’s thrall, so what else could I expect? All of the genuine angst and drama that I expected and found lacking in book one was found in this book. Not only is Eve forced to navigate college life but she’s trying to find her place in the social sphere. On top of all that, she and Vincent have to pretend in public while getting down and dirty in private, which makes for a lot of turmoil and emotional breakdowns.

The ending just about killed me. Once again, I have no idea what’s going to happen next. Hearts are broken, futures are left up in the air, and the next book isn’t out until July. I know it’s only a month away, but that’s a month too long! I need it NOW!! I’m hoping Eve has found some confidence and that I get to have all the awesomeness that is Vincent to devour once again.
