Read my review of Indiscretion: Volume One HERE
Fraternizing with the competition? Check.
Risking everything I’d worked so hard for? Check.
Mind-shattering orgasms? Double check.
Max Richfield made me forget myself. Forget all the reasons why I’d chosen to be alone for so long. I had goals. I needed stability. He brought chaos. I’d taken years erecting my walls. And with good reason, I would soon discover.
Now my inability to see beyond Max’s charm could cost me everything.
A summer of f*ck buddies? Something to take the edge off? I was down.But when Chloe shows up at my hotel door, wanting to rip my head off, rather than give me head—I cared. A lot. Too much, in fact.
This is turning into more. And I can’t do more.
Like the ink under my skin she’s becoming permanent. Enduring. Immovable.
Was I ready to let her go though?
Not a f*cking chance.
(n.) the specific feeling experienced while falling in love, rather than simply being in love
Indiscretion: Volume Two takes off right where Volume One left us hanging—in the woods with a bear watching Max and Chloe doing…stuff. #LuckyMotherfuckingBear
Chloe and Max’s chemistry continues to burn hot while they also seem to be discovering feelings for each other that they really shouldn’t be having. And what shall I even say about the writing?
Shall I compare thee (Miss Grace) to a summer’s day? Thy writing is more lovely and more temperate;
That is, if lovely stands for absolutely badass and temperate stands for smokin’.
If I were to, say, cast a major distinction between volumes 2 & 3, I’d say that while volume 2 is majorly about a sexual coming together of Max and Chloe (#DidYouSeeWhatIDidThere), Volume 3 is about discovering just how deep their feelings for each other go. It’s funny, actually. If I weren’t completely in love with this series, I’d go so far as to say that the sex was the only thing in Volume 2. Now that I think of it, it kind of was.
But there’s this certain sense of…something that these two gave me in Volume 2. I can’t quite put my finger on it. I guess the closest emotion I can think of to describe it would be hope.
Max and Chloe don’t want the complications that come with being in a relationship. They don’t want the cuddles and the giggles. They don’t want love.
But what do they have, between the two of them? All of the above.
Of course our pasts always, always come back to haunt us. We don’t know how the universe functions and so, the things we say or do today have a way if biting us right in the ass tomorrow.
If you’ve gotten a hint from the above, you know that Indiscretion: Volume Two ends at a cliffhanger.
On a somewhat unrelated note:
If you’ve read my review of Indiscretion: Volume One, (if you haven’t, WTF?! It’s here) then you know I wanted Max to do dirty, dirty things to Chloe while also talking about it. And so I made a note in my review to let Miss Grace know.
Indiscretion: Volume Three, much like the previous two, starts out with a bang.
(n) a nostalgic longing to be near again to something or someone that is distant, or that has been loved and then lost
This one is my absolute favorite in the series. Completely. It appealed to my inner romantic whilst also completely satisfying my outer dirty talker.
Max and Chloe were, for real, battling the attraction that went deeper than just sex that they seemed to have for one another. It was precious, considering these two just HAVE to end up together and they HAVE to be good at the coming together.
Yes, I’m making threatening eyes at you, Miss Grace.
Also, there’s a bit of a drama here, considering there was a break and enter and an almost tire slashing incident with Chloe. But you know what the best part about these incidents was? The fact that Max was terrified for her safety while also struggling to distance himself from her and also imagining how it would be if they were together and then realizing that she deserves better…yeah. That’s the part I loved. And that’s the part I think you’ll enjoy too 😀
Deep breaths, Rhea. Deep breaths.
