Erica☆☆☆☆
Heart-pounding and thrilling, One Love's pacing was dizzying. There were no starts and stops- no passages to sit back and catch your breath. One Love's predecessor was a slower pace, where you just kept waiting for the other shoe to drop. There was no such wait with this installment. On every single page was something horrifying, emotional, kick-a$$/bad-a$$, and brutal.

The only thing I can say about this type of pacing in a book, is that I wasn't given time to process one event before getting smashed in the face with the next; with each event more horrifying than the last.

The jet-speed pacing was the difference between a 5 star read and the 4 star I gave One Love. There were moments I was confused, moments where my mind couldn't catch and fully comprehend the words I was reading. I became numb to the action, the misery, the horror, because I didn't get time to savor it. I didn't get time to think to myself, "Oh, my God. Did that just really happen?" before I was thrust into another similar scene.

This series is truly about choice. The wrong choice leading you down the wrong path. How once you make one wrong choice, you'll undoubtedly make another. Until it's compounded to the point that you've come full-circle and you find yourself buried beneath your bad decisions. In this, both Dornan and Juliette are to blame, in equal measure. Both flawed in the same way. Both acting and reacting in the same fashion.

I doubt I'm the only one, but I always have a thing for the psycho of the story.

St. Germain dubbed Dornan the anti-hero of the series. I tend to agree, but I also feel Julz is as well. I think I found the scenes our anti-heroes shared the most intriguing. They were basically the male and female equivalent of each other.

While their ages were 20 years apart, it made the reader wonder how Julie would act and react if she reached the age Dornan was currently at. Especially now, when she had no qualms of killing, maiming, torturing, and finding delight in watching the defilement and harm of others- someone who has been there, and knows exactly how it feels to be degraded like an animal. At 21, Julz isn't a budding sociopath; she's already there.

Yes, we feel her pain, her emotion, her regret. But oddly enough, I felt that from Dornan as well. He was 20 years our heroine's senior, and his heart was equally as hardened as hers. I doubt the Dornan of 21 behaved as the Juliette of 21...

One Love was and wasn't about the undying love between Jase and Julz. As I read the series as a whole, I felt there was an anti-romance happening beneath the surface.

In the author's note to readers at the end of the story, I agree with her statement. The anti-romance deserved the scene-time because it was more potent- raw. Powerful.

Jase and Julz are getting a full-length novel, we can explore their relationship then. Which I'm thankful for, because I had periods of thinking Jase was weak, nowhere near strong enough for Julz.

I give mad props to St. Germain for causing me to fall in love with her anti-hero, for finding myself siding with those causing wrong. My philosophy: In war, both sides are in the right (for their own gain). In this series, all parties were simultaneously right and wrong, and I found myself rooting for both, knowing there could only be one victor.
