Description

Dark. Mysterious. Gorgeous.

Loved by all the girls. Respected by all the guys.

As the heir to a billion-dollar empire, Kian Maston's future was promising - until the day he saved my life. Everything changed for both of us, and there was one more word that could be used to describe him: dangerous. The nation fell in love with Kian while falling in hate with me. He was sent to prison, and as far as they were concerned, it was my fault. I was forced to go into hiding until today.

Kian's being released from prison, and he should go back to being the golden boy he always was supposed to be. I should remain in hiding, living my life as normal as could be. That's what we should do....

Contains mature themes.

Here's the thing...

I was introduced to Tijan via the Fallen Crest series. I breezed through all of the books in a few weeks and must say that I enjoyed them. That's what led me to try this title. There are a few things that bothered me about the Fallen Crest series that I thought might be unique to the character ages or the characters themselves. However, after listening to Kian, I realize that this is a Tijan thing.

1. The characters are written to have a backstory that makes you either relate to or want to pull for the character. We should want these characters to have a happy ending given what they had to endure earlier in life. In theory, this should produce a full-bodied character that we can buy into. It seems that Tijan develops traumatic backgrounds for her characters, but in a way that is so obvious it seems superficial. I have trouble believing the trauma and the necessity for someone to step in to rescue them. In this way, her characters seem to fall short of their intended impact.

2. I get that Tijan writes young / new adult characters. In reality, you would expect some immaturity in the dialogue and/or actions. However, Tijan seems to want these characters to seem wise beyond their years, given their backgrounds. There are several instances where the character is supposed to say something profound, whether to make an heartfelt appeal or to "put someone in their place," but it always comes out as a childish quip. If you're going to draw attention to something that someone is going to say, especially if the impact of their words are supposed to be significant, it better be good.

I really want to be able to enjoy the books, but those two things, especially the second, have become distracting and are taking away from what could otherwise be solid new adult romance novels.

WARNING- this book is a TEASE

Are you kidding me???? The author built up aaaaaaall that sexual tension and didn't write a single scene??? It's written like an erotica but it DOESN'T DELIVER. Prepare for confusing, LITERARY BLUE BALLS. Why make sex and relationships one of the focal points of your story but then exclude a key interpersonal experience in their evolution? One of the few couples I actually cared about and we're shut out of their story!

Be forewarned.

Slow, Repetitive and Drawn Out

I survived to chapter 32 and gave up. The story was extremely slow with very little romance involved. Lots of saying the same thing over and over in a different way, very annoying. While the narration was decent, the female narrator sounded older than the male narrator and that added to the lack of any real connection between the hero and heroin. All in all this is a waste of credit.

Just Okay.

I'm a huge lover of Tijan, but this book was not good. It was incredibly slow, which I'm okay with sometimes if the steam makes up for it later on, but the "sexy" parts were glazed over and bad too. I didn't feel the connection between Jordan and Kian, and I never grew to like anything about Jordan's character. If you want great Tijan read the Fallen Crest series, or Hate to Love You.

You feel this one down to your toes.

I can't put my finger on exactly why, maybe it's the intensity and mystery surrounding Kian, or the emotional backstory of their whole story, but I definitely felt the emotions for the entirety of this story.
I only gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because I was a little confused by the characters choices seeming to against who they are, but overall it didn't take away from the book much, and I would give it a recommendation.

Loved it

I’ve read this book multiple times and I still love. This was my 1st hearing the audible and this performance made it better than I thought possible. Kian & Jordan’s love was beautiful my only problem was I wanted an epic epilogue like 20 years later married! Kids! I just didn’t want it to end 💕💕

Tijan’s books are good!

I like Tijan’s book a lot. Kian was a little hard to keep up Sometimes it seemed to go in circles. It was a good story but you really have to pay attention so you don’t miss anything.
