5-star rating for the series as a whole too!

This is the finale in this amazing trilogy – and wow, what a rollercoaster ride of complication and intensity! You cannot read this as a standalone, it would be confusing and you would miss out on a huge amount of vital information. What I can say, though, is that if you are too desperate to read this as it arrives on your Kindle, then I think you can safely go in not having done a reread, as it all came flooding back to me and subtle reminders through the book ensured that I was up-to-date with any small detail that might have slipped my mind.

We are propelled straight back into the fast-paced, devastating, and infinitely complicated life that Bailey is now leading. Thankfully she has Kash by her side, and they remain close and true to each other through thick and thin, which is both refreshing and pretty much essential. That belief in these two being a tight couple adds greatly to the pleasure to be had from this story.

To say that there is intrigue, power play, and danger at the highest levels brought on by both of their fathers is an understatement, but then there is the just as insidious behaviour of some of Bailey's college mates. There is no time to process one thing before another flies in, and it enhances our belief in the extreme intelligence of Bailey, and those she has around her.

I don't often go back to a book, as there as so many new ones out there to read, but this trilogy is now at the top of my need-to-reread list, because I am confident that read all in one go, it will blow my mind in the very best way. Thank you, Tijan!

This is the third book in this series and you do have to read them in order, as one follows the other.

Kash has new secrets that he's trying to make sure don't touch his family. With new threats popping up daily, it will take all of his men and his skills to make sure that his family will never be threatened by his grandpa again.

Bailey is reeling. She witnessed something horrific and she can't just bounce back. Despite her brilliance, this is something she has to feel her way through instead of thinking her way through. As Bailey comes out of her fog, she will turn to her brother and Kash to help her get her revenge and come to terms with what has happened.

Twists and turns, betrayal and loyalty. These are the backbone of this story, and you won't know who to trust, who to turn to, and who will become your ally. It's a series that will take you on a rollercoaster of emotions, feelings, and blood lust. You won't be disappointed!

The Revenge is the third and final installment in The Insiders series. It can in no way be read as a standalone, all three novels interconnect by a continuing plot. Not only would it be confusing, it would ruin the plot, along with the emotional investment.

The Damaged left off with a doozy of a cliffhanger. Tijan does a masterful job of picking up where it was left off, while easing the reader into past events without resorting to info-dumps. Hints and reminders to spark readers' minds, whether they read the previous novels on their release dates or last week. No confusion to be had, no need for a reread (which I have a hankering to do). Just a seamless transition from the previous to the next.

Bailey's life has been in upheaval since word-one of The Insiders. A pawn in a game powerful men play, as the by-blow daughter of a tech genius, taking after her father more than the siblings she's recently discovered. Through many ups and downs and tragedies, Bailey was trying to grasp the idea of family, only for more tragedy to strike.

Kash is fighting his own familial demons, refusing to be a pawn in the games powerful men play. He's a powerful man in his own right, only there are consequences when you tell men no when they're not used to hearing it. Whether a toddler or a Mafioso, they throw tantrums that cause hard-hitting consequences.

Twists and turns, secrets and lies, betrayed loyalty, mysteries discovered, uncovered, and revealed. Questions are finally answered that have plagued readers since the beginning of The Insiders.

Bailey as a character is easily to identify with, with her strong desire to bond with her siblings, with the intense connection to Kash, and her quick mind forever attempting to solve their problems.

Bailey and Kash's relationship is refreshing. Supportive instead of smothering masquerading as love, as often love is portrayed. Kash is protective and supportive, standing by to catch Bailey should she fall, instead of acting as if she's incapable of helping herself.

Bailey and Kash help slay each other's demons without miscommunication driving a wedge between them. It's a refreshing change of pace for a couple to present a united front against so much drama, where usually unnecessary drama is introduced inside the relationship.

Highly recommended to fans of Tijan, especially those looking for a trilogy filled with twists and turns. Now I'm looking forward to waiting a bit, then binge-reading the trilogy back-to-back. Whatever Tijan releases next, I'll be waiting in anticipation.
