~ Review by Angela ~

*I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*
When this book tour came around, I decided that I would keep these books to myself to read and not offer them to my other reviewers. This definitely sounded like a kind of book that I would enjoy. And mostly, I did enjoy it. I enjoyed the story, I enjoyed the characters, and I enjoyed the twists and turns that kept coming. There were, however, some things that were really annoying. There was a lot of use of the phrase “with that” throughout the book. It is so overused that I could swear it is almost used on every single page. It got so frustrating reading the book that I had a hard time concentrating on the rest of the story. The other thing that was annoying was that the second her guardians left Eve, she was attacked. Asher is sworn to protect her at all costs, no matter what, but he’s called away constantly. So, it’s predictable in the sense. If the editing was tweaked to get rid of the “with that” issue and some of the predictability were pared down, I would be able to give this a higher rating. I give Revelation 3.5 books.

~ Excerpt ~

“Sleep Over” – Asher and Eve, Restraint Excerpt

I’m brushing my teeth when Asher swaggers into the bathroom. He leans his hip against the counter and just watches me. It’s starting to freak me out. I squint at him before spitting.

“Can I help you?”

“Huh?” he asks.

“You’re staring.” I tip my toothbrush at him.

“Am I?” He tilts his head to the side and crosses his arms.

I spit one last time and start my flossing routine and gargle my mouth rinse, all while Asher just stands there, observing me. Seriously, what’s he doing?

“Curious about dental care?”

“Curious about you,” he shoots back.

“Okay.”

He shrugs. “I like watching you do normal, everyday things.”

I blink. “Did you get clocked in training today?”

“No.” He slides his hands into the pockets of his pajama bottoms. “Want to have a sleep over?”

“Sleepover?” I repeat, less than enthused.

“Pajamas, pillow fights, gossip. You know, sleepover,” he clarifies, like I’m an idiot.

I sigh. “You’re freaking me out. What the hell is going on?”

He reaches for me and grabs the hem of my tank top, pulling me towards him. I stumble a bit and have to place my hands on his shoulders for balance as he tugs me closer. “I want you in my bed tonight. I was hoping you’d fall asleep in my arms.” His eyes lock onto mine.

Restraint picks up where Revelation leaves off. There are more twists and turns in this book as well. I was also hoping that because this was the second book, the “with that” issue would have been taken care of. No such luck. The phrase is used throughout the book a lot. Ugh. The predictability is kind of a buzzkill. I am really interested to see what happens in the next book though as I still like the story and the characters. I really and truly hope that the pesky “with that” issue will have been fixed by the third book. I give Restraint 3.5 books.
