Helpful Score: 3
Here is how I rated this trilogy:
"Highlander Unbound" (Book 1) 3*
- Two reasons: One, I didn't like Ellie's constant betrayal of Liam. Especially after having Liams declaration and words of love that he would do *anything* for her. Ellie just didn't have the depth of character that Mared and Anna did in books 2 & 3.
- And two, while I enjoyed Liam in general, I thought he came across as a little to muchâthe bigger they are the harder (or dumber) they fallâ type guy especially when he continued to let Ellie dupe him.
"Highlander In Disguise" (Book 2) 5* Grif and Anna's story had just the right amount of everything! My favorite of the 3 books! =)
"Highlander In Love" (Book 3) 4 1/2* Payton and Mared's story was very well done also. And while it was predictable, I was still in there rooting for them and teary eyed in places.
All in all a very enjoyable trio! And of course the covers are yummy! =)
I wish I had known this was a second in a series before I started reading it. Aside from that, this book was quite enjoyable. One reason I like this book is because Anna reminded me so much of myself. Grif was also a great character. A charmer who's not a skeeze. A man who's not afraid to have feelings. Gotta love it.
The side characters add dimensions that make the book even more complete.
Well rounded and well written, this is one author I will read again.
