Mason Kade is not known to be nice. He is ruthless, manipulative, and unforgiving. Most will say that he is an a**hole and he is to those that cross him or cross his loved ones. However, he does not want to be who he is. He does not enjoy hurting others, but there is no limit to the lengths he will go to protect himself and his brother.
This is the story of how he came to be and this is why so many love Mason Kade.
Overall, this was a great addition to the series and it provided further insight to Mason, Logan, and Nate. It covers quite an extensive period in their lives from Tate coming on the scene to Sam’s arrival. I didn’t like seeing Mason with other girls and I almost felt aggrieved on Sam’s part which is ridic because 1) they are fictional characters and 2) Sam hadn’t come into his life yet. I got all grrrr whenever Kate was in it, and I would have loved to reach into my Kindle and strangle the manipulative beatch. We see the real extent of Mason’s protective nature in this novella, and a more vulnerable side of Logan. Loved that. I also enjoyed that we got to see Nate a little more as I’ve felt like his character has been underdeveloped in this series (it would be great if we got Nate’s book in the future.)
I adored seeing the first interaction between Mason and Sam in the forecourt of Quickie’s but I was disappointed that it cut off then. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE a proper companion novel to the first book, to see everything from Mason’s perspective.
There were parts where I felt Mason’s inner monologue was too excessive for a male character and sections were there was too much telling and not enough showing, but overall it was a good read, and one I would recommend to readers of this series. You will come away more informed over certain scenes and characters.
I’m kinda depressed now because I’m all up to date on the series and I need more. When is book 6 coming out?
Actual rating 3.5 stars.
