Summary

When I saw my escape, I took it. Now I'm in New York City and trying to get my life back on track. Despite the tracker in my ankle, Crow hasn't come for me. He hasn't even called me. I told him the depth of my feelings but he cruelly rejected them.

Maybe he's forgotten about me.

One day, I walk into my apartment and spot the pile of buttons on the counter. I never left them there, and there's only one explanation for their presence.

Maybe Crow hasn't forgotten me after all.

Buttons and Pain

The last book in this trilogy was the ideal way to wrap up Pearl and Crow's story. It gave them both the ending they deserved.
It once again, showed just how fierce Pearl was, and just how ruthless Crow could be.
They really are each others light in the darkness. On the surface Pearl showed Crow how resolute she was in her decisions. She was able to detach herself, making Crow see her true worth. When the realisation of what he was risking, finally dawned on him, let's just say, THAT moment took MY breath away!
I look forward to reading Cane's story now..

LOVED THIS SERIES.DARK SIDE OF OBSESSION AND LOVE

Any additional comments?

I did not review the first two books because I needed to know how it ended. There are some brutal moments but the story is well rounded and the depth of the characters was a complete enjoyable experience. At times I was even afraid of what would happen. Get all three because it is worth every credit and the ending is well worth the wait🌟🌟🌟🌟

Six Stars Out of Five

This has become one of my favorite series of all times by a favorite author and a favorite pair of narrators. While it is a dark romance with lots of action and intrigue (and steamy sex scenes) it is a very uplifting story. Penelope Sky's writing is both luxurious and savage . She creates the best female characters who she tosses about in a world of powerful and corrupt men who are not quite tough enough or cunning enough to conquer them. The voice actors, Samantha Cook and Michael Ferraiuolo, are the dream team for the stories in this series. Their voices become the characters. They are honest in their portrayals of Button and Crow allowing the story to unfold at the perfect pace for each of the characters. Michael Ferraioulo's voice could melt the panties off the Statue of Liberty.
Over the last few chapters I was begging for the climax and dreading the finale. I hate to see this series end and feel a big "book slump" galloping up behind me as I write this.

overall well done

I liked the ending, however, some of the interactions and sex scenes were hard to listen to. A lot of the sex scenes were not consentual.

YES!

This book was a good choice.. I would definitely recommend... The victim was not to be played with, and she let you know it.

Button/Pearl Is The Ultimate Badass

I can hear Button singing, "I get knocked down, but I get up again, nothing's ever gonna keep me down." This chick doesn't know the meaning of stay down. I'm obsessed with Button/Pearl too, she's beautiful, smart and tough as they come with a kind and forgiving heart. I love that this heroine did not wait for a white knight to rescue her, she was constantly planning how to save herself. But a hot guy, even if he is bad guy is just what this girl needed. This book is the perfect way to end an amazing series. There are definitely some dark and painful moments to listen to but they added to intensity of the overall story. I love that Button didn't see herself as a victim and Crow never treated her as such. If I had to have one sentence that describes the essence of this series, "Love conquers all."

The narrators were really good but since the majority of the book took place in Italy, shouldn't someone have an Italian accent. I'm not sure what kind of accent Bones had. A duet style narration would have done wonders for this story.

Absolutely worth every cent/credit I paid. I will probably listen to this series again, and maybe again again.

GOOD and HOT, HUH BRUH

This write great and the narrator team is awesome. I purchase the last two books at one time, because I was so caught
up in the story line, I couldn't stop. Buttons is a strong young woman, and Crow, a man after my heart. Kane added just the right amount of amusement. He even pissed me off (LOL). Love the entire thing.

Great Trilogy

This trilogy is captivating. It is worth the time and credits. Pearl is one of the best female characters I have come across in a long time. As a "reader" she doesn't become weak, insecure, or annoying. I appreciated her unbreakable strength and determination. The part of her story spent with Bones was disturbing and heartbreaking. If you can get through those chapters, you will be intrigued by the relationship that was developed between Pearl and Crowe. The narrators did an amazing job expressing the characters emotions.

Okay still decent

I just wish that there was a little less sex and more drama and story line with the pearl and her experience with bones and more additional storylines instead of just crow and pearl so we would have more story . It just wasn't that exciting as I hoped for and now the next remaining books are on Crows brother so we are pretty much done with Pearl and Crow story .But it is a decent series overall and has some funny laugh out loud moments:)
Lastly the narrators did a great job but the only thing is the Male narrator has one female voice which I don't prefer but didn't cause me not to continue enjoying the story.

Be warned that the sex scenes are extremely dirty when they start talking and can be extremely embarrassing if anyone happens to be around you when you are listening.
