Series: Illusions Duet #2
A thousand days.
It doesn’t matter.
She blew out the flame inside me and now
I’m in the dark.
Suffering is the cloak that shelters.
The mask that protects fragile skin.
And happiness is something for those
who have suffered less.
Happiness doesn’t live here,
in the house of broken dolls.Only sin.
Author’s Note: This duet takes place in the world of the Vision Series but can be read as a standalone. Mature themes. HEA guaranteed.

As soon as I finished book one with that crazy cliffy I knew I needed to dive directly into book two. Did I enjoy it? Yes. As much as book one? SO CLOSE…but not quite. I think my biggest issue with this one was the (HIGHLIGHT TEXT FOR SPOILER) length of time the two main characters spend apart. It was way too long (60%) which took away from the connection that the author had so masterly built in the previous book. Once they reunite though, it was amazing all over again. Especially the last 30% which made my heart all squishy.
That issue aside, it was still a fantastic book. Same high quality of writing. A fantastic twist I did not see coming. I liked that we got inside Gideon’s head in this one. I still adored Dierdre and how strong she was. Especially with everything she went through in this book. There was no OW drama. There was OM drama in the form of the “baddie”. There wasn’t a lot of sex in this one and when we do get some, it comes very late in the book. However, that fit with the overall plot, so I wasn’t too disappointed. What I was a teensy bit disappointed about was the lack of Nate and Finn in this book. I hope both of them get books of their own. As well as Liam, who intrigued me a lot. Last, it was all wrapped up in a super sweet ending.Trigger warning…(HIGHLIGHT TEXT FOR SPOILER) the heroine is held captive for almost three months where she is drugged, beaten, and raped repeatedly. Thankfully, it isn’t very descriptive.
