The second and final book in the Master of Trickery Duet!
“Must be brave, stubborn, and impervious to the tempers of loved ones.”
The first line hissed with history.
“Hours are endless, pay is non-existence, quitting absolutely forbidden.”
The second line ached with truth.
“Able to function on no sleep, refrain from running when times get hard, and be more than just a living canvas but a lover.”
The third thrummed with honesty.
“Other attributes required: forgiving, opinionated, and not afraid to tell me when I’m wrong. Must also enjoy being touched and kissed at any time of my choosing.”
The fourth glowed with promise.
“Call or email ‘YOUR HEART, HIS SOUL’ if interested in applying.”
The final made my future unfold.
The advert was so similar to one I should never have applied for.
A twist of fate that brought two destined people back together.
A job I would take in a heartbeat if the employer could offer such terms.
But I wasn’t free.
Neither was Gil.
Therefore, my interview could never happen.
I’ve rated both books with four stars but I think that I enjoyed The Living Canvas just a little bit more. Lots of questions were finally answered. Not only for the reader but also for Olin. I was just so desperate for Olin to finally know the whole truth. I don’t think it’s a big spoiler when I say the story does have an happy ending but I honestly wasn’t sure there would be one. I was really worried about this, actually. I couldn’t see how this would all turn out good for Olin and Gil. Thankfully it did in the end.
Olin and Gil were really great characters. I love them to death but the biggest surprise of this final book was probably the character of Justin. I already liked him well enough in the first book but he really stepped up in this one. The guy was a freaking saint. Such a damn good friend to both Olin and Gil. I just loved him so much.
I always read Pepper’s books pretty fast but I feel like this one I read even more quickly than usually. I just needed to know how it would end and my eyes were pretty much glued to my Kindle. This doesn’t happen with every book so that shows how much I really enjoyed it. Pepper sure has a way with words. Her writing is always so special and I can’t get enough of it.
Overall, the conclusion to this unique and hot Master of Trickery Duet was one emotional rollercoaster. But I’ve been so glad to have been on this amazing ride with Olin and Gil. Their story was pretty tough in these two books but it was such a great love story that nobody should miss out on.
