my review

4 Stars

​Arrrggggg!!  I’m not sure if I like this series or not. Don’t jump up my butt – I know people really love it but I feel seriously exhausted after reading the first two books. Brooklyn’s life is one freaking hot mess and her crazy saga continues in Brooklyn’s Survival.

Brooklyn has a very dangerous stalker/murderer after her. He is cruel and relentless in his pursuit of her – killing women who look exactly like her left and right. Hurting the people that Brooklyn loves. He’s always present. Taunting her. You’re not sure if he wants to get her angry and engaged in his crazy game or if he desperately wants to break her spirit.

I loved this aspect of the story.  It’s exciting and intense.  Suspenseful.  It made me want to recommend this book to everyone.

However, this drama is coupled with the ongoing adventure that is Brooklyn and Mark’s relationship. Sweet Jesus. These two made me feel angry and frustrated. You know they are souls mates and that they know it, too. Their connection and history ties them together but is almost too much to overcome. Yet they cannot stay away from one another and whenever they are left alone they cannot ignore their passion for each other.  I was left screaming at my Kindle – GET IT TOGETHER ALREADY!!  They made me feel a bit stabby and after a while that feeling got old.

Elizabeth York’s writing style was tough for me. I almost want to describe it as being too fast paced but that wasn’t it. I felt her story telling jumped around and she inserted details or people into scenes that were meant to have your jaw dropping but instead it felt like she was trying too hard to shock the reader.  Several times while I was reading,  I had to stop and go back to reread a scene because I wasn’t sure what exactly was happening.  I had a lot of WTF moments in both books.

Overall, the plot and the characters (while irritating) in Brooklyn’s Survival are interesting and entertaining. I am looking forward to reading the final installment and meeting the evil behind all of the misery as well as the happily ever after for this couple.  I would definitely suggest that you check the Brooklyn series out and see what you think of it.
