One epic love. Two wounded souls. Three impossible words.
Ripped away from each other by circumstances beyond their control. Reunited in a place they never expected. Separated but never quite apart.
“You’re still the only woman I see. The only woman I need. I know you’re in there somewhere, sweet Caroline. We’re going to find you and we’re going to help you, until you come home to me where you belong. Then we’re going to finish what we started. Together.”
Her confidence shattered, Caroline finally starts to deal with what happened at The Fed. Jack is determined to convince her that she’s more than she thinks she is. That she wasn’t destroyed by her experiences. That their relationship is worth the fight. But will he give up before it’s too late?
Phoenix is the fourth installment in The Bellator Saga. It should be read after the first three novels in the series.

My Thoughts - Story
Well, Ms London does it again with a heart stopping, emotional read. This is one of those books where you just can’t put the story down – You will be TRANSFIXED.
I had one quirk about the book and that was Caroline’s character. I understand the why behind Ms. London’s reason for this, but it still broke my heart for her to continue to be the “bad guy” in this story. I found myself disconnecting from her and my heart bleeding for Jack.
Why did I still rate it a perfect 5 Stars?
That’s an easy answer, because even though I hated her character in this book, I know it was necessary to steer the story in that direction….but did it have to be almost the whole book…and then….what???
That ending?? OMG, Cecilia – can you write 24/7 so we can all know what happens next?
There isn’t much I can say about what happened in this book without spoiling for those who may be starting at the beginning. I can only share that the drama is INTENSE and the adventure is NON-STOP!
