Indiscretion: Volume Four by Elisabeth Grace
Date of Publishing : September 14th, 2014
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
My Rating: ★★★★
The image was seared into my mind. Imprinted. Emblazoned. Etched.
Did I blame him for what I saw? Or myself, for allowing him the ability to cause the pain coursing through me?
Betrayal was a weapon that cut to the core—the ‘what ifs’ the infection that festered in the wound.
I’d thought we’d had roadblocks thrown in front of us before. Damn. Those would have seemed like mere speed bumps if I’d seen what was coming…
Little did I know that what was headed our way would prove to be the biggest test of all—putting impossible choices in front of us. None of which seemed to lead to a happy ending in which the two of us were together.
****This is the FINAL volume in Max & Chloe’s story!****
If there was ever a moment when I felt Elisabeth Grace wasn’t a good writer—purely fictitious, of course; she’s pretty damn awesome—Volume Four BURIES that sentiment. THIS, people, is what I like to call The Complete Package.
There’s drama without too much of drama.
There’s fluff without too much of fluff.
Angst without too much of it.
And there’s never too much Max-Chloe sexy times so shut your damn food-hole.
I didn’t cry in this book. I don’t know how, but I managed to not bawl my eyes out. Thing is, there was just so much in this book. So much feeling…so much emotion? I dunno, it’s kind f difficult to explain.
And any little thing I give away is like ruining the entire thing, but I’m going to do my best to convince you that you absolutely NEED to read this series.
Max & Chloe: ZOMG these two make the best couple ever. I know that the friends-with-benefits-turn-into-more angle has been done many, many times before. But believe me when I say, that it’s never been done quite this way before. Their chemistry, the sexual tension (or lack thereof) and the way romance seems to seep into this volume…you have got to read it to see it.
Chloe: You would expect that at some time point, the girl would cave to the boy’s whims and submit. Yeah no. That doesn’t happen here. At. All. Chloe is a headstrong, fire-filled girl, completely capable of making decisions for herself. And the best part? You’re going to agree with her decisions. She’s not gonna make you want to pull your hair out because she’s weak or insecure. That’s how awesome she is.
The Drama: Are you a fan of drama? Unexpected twists and turns? Near-deaths and sudden break-ups? If yes, then this is just the thing for you. If no, then hey. This is a series. Not too much to read at all. Maybe you’ll develop a liking for dram, eh?
I sound like a bad salesperson.
“…I was connected to him now on a level far beyond just the physical. Whether we discussed it or not made no difference. The connection still existed, like invisible pieces of twine roping us together.”
“You are so beautiful, Chloe. I’ve never met anyone whose outer beauty perfectly matched her inner beauty. You’re truly one of a kind.”
“If you never passed through a storm, then you’d have no appreciation for the rainbow.”
I’m not even going to mention Max’s dirty talk throughout the series. Although there’s one thing: If you read the entire series together, and your ovaries come out unscathed, do let me know.
Writing this review is also really fucking awkward. There is a ton of stuff that happened in the book but I can’t one away without giving the other. And if I give away anything even remotely small and supposedly un-dramatic, it’s not going to make sense to you. It’s a vicious cycle.
The previous three books? They were pleasant. Non-teary. Hot.
Volume Four? That’s real. It’s real life. It’s the fact that even though you like this girl and you want to be with her and you’re afraid of commitment, you still have bigger things to worry about.
It’s how you have no control over what happens to you, even if you plan your life to the t.
It’s how love is always triumphant.
I feel like I should extend personal thanks to Miss Grace for existing. BUT, I’m not good at that sort of thing, so I’m just hoping she reads this. She existed, made this series and through them, kept me entertained and jittery and always, always wanting more. I still maintain what I said before – Volume Three is my absolute favorite. But if you’re looking for more than just sex and dirty talk, but can’t get enough of Chloe and Max, then Volume Four will be the perfect end of the series for you.
Oh who am I kidding? You want to read this, bitches. You know you do.
