Temptation would test them…

The second novel in the Unbreakable Trilogy, The Golden Locket follows Gustav and Serena to New York.

Ensconced in their Manhattan penthouse, all seems blissfully happy for Gustav and Serena. Still in the first flush of love, they have every satisfaction they could need.

But as they enjoy their New York pleasure ground, ghosts start to emerge from Gustav’s past, and when his damaged younger brother, Pierre, comes back into his life, he brings with him a dangerous threat…

With temptation waiting at every turn, can Gustav and Serena survive all the excitement that the Big Apple holds?

The sexy sequel to Primula Bond’s Sunday Times Top 20 bestseller, The Silver Chain. Perfect for fans of erotic romance.

My Thoughts:

This one didn’t hit me like the first. I was a little confused, ok make that a lot confused with the plot lines going back and forth. There were times when Serena is remembering something that happened but there isn’t any font changes or anything to help me recognize that this isn’t part of the linear story. Of course I was reading this as an Arc and editing changes are expected, but this really started throwing me from the beginning.

Then, although, I enjoy Primula’s writing there was so much between the brothers. I’m guessing that the tension is supposed to be there because there is even more disastrous stuff that happens at the end but sadly I never got over being confused at the beginning. And the arguing was so ongoing… I was bored with it instead of staying with it all.

I also had to jog my memory a bit but Primula really does a great job of reminding the reader of the prior story so I didn’t have to go back and check if what I had envisioned was correct or not. She laid the story out even though I read it quite a while ago. And the characters were just as fleshed out, even more so, than in the first book. I did really enjoy seeing the next part of their story.

All in all, I wound up enjoying the story but I think the kindle version could have used help. I am sure the fans of the first will enjoy this and wait with bated breath, as am I, for the third in this extremely sexy series!
