FTC disclosure: I voluntarily read an advanced reader’s copy of this book
This book was the most romantic cyborg book I have ever read. I know it sounds like I am exaggerating, but once you read it, you will understand. I feel like it needs it’s own soundtrack. Descriptive language painted such a detailed picture, my emotions were fully involved.
First of all, I loved March. He was not ashamed to admit that he had fallen in love and the analytical part of his brain wanted to understand what went wrong and why did she leave.
“He still dreamed of her and awakened each morning breath to find her gone.”
When March finds Jules and realizes who she is, he is determined to be an honorable man and do what would be best for everyone else.
He was not weak or indecisive, however, he calculated the implications of their union and decided to sacrifice his happiness in order to ensure the stability of her nation. He was going to let her go for the greater benefit of her world. He could not in good conscience ask her to give up being emperor in order to be with him.
What he did not factor into his equation was that Jules was feeling just as strongly about him.
“One beckoning smile from Jules… rendered him powerless to resist temptation“
Before I even began reading the book, I did not like Jules because she left March and I was in love with March from the beginning. As the story progresses, I could understand why she left years ago and the predicament in which she found herself. I can say that she redeemed herself and I felt that she was worthy to be with March.
TOW Final Word: Buy, Borrow, Pass?
BUY. I have been recommending this book ever since I read it. I loved it that much. I can best describe this book as sweet but not sappy.
