Review: Stop (Cold Mark #3) by Scarlett Dawn


From New York Times bestselling author, Scarlett Dawn, comes the third installment in The Cold Mark Saga, Stop, where tipping points are reached and surprises lurk...

Braita Valorn is stuck. She has no real freedom, her existence dependent on what the men of Triaz decide. Her fate is not her own. But she desperately wants it to be and will do anything to make it so.

When a chance to make her own choices arises, she does what she must. Hard choices of theft end as a careless endeavor, leaving her life on the line. Will the men in her life come to stop her downfall or will they come for retribution?

I enjoyed the first two books so I was kind of expecting something in this third installment.

I was disappointed about Braita's journey here. I didn't mind when she left her Vaq because of some misunderstanding and a lie of omission. But seriously, I was contented with both Leo and Malik already. I felt that the bonds were in place but I know it's their fault. My problem was that Braita might actually have new additional potential lovers and her phrase not mine that technically her Vaq weren't really together so it's okay for that type of skin contact. I can't even imagine how her relationship between this two pair of Vaq will be. Plus, there's the Soul thing, it kind of makes it more complicated because of it's meaning.

I don't mind Killeg and Phila, I found out that they were also the good variety but do they have to make Braita's love life more complicated? I really hated Braita from here and also she was acting like a child. I understand her love and friendship for Jax. I'm surprise about Jax too and I'm happy for him.

I won't spoil what goes on from here but there's that little twist near the end that leaves you hanging.

I received an arc from the author in exchange for an honest review.
