REVIEW

This review may be the hardest one of my blogging life. Because even starting it  ( two weeks too late I might add) means that this series is over. There is no more Caroline & Jack. Nothing. This is the end. This is it. The finale is here.

And what a fucking ride it was!

I’ve been a little more than obsessed with this series since I dove in nearly two years ago. Caroline & Jack are the heart of this story – a Political Suspense that is mirroring our very existence as I type this. It’s frightening. My sister while reading Dissident ( the first book of the series) kept texting me asking if Cecilia was a psychic – she herself insisting she’s not writing meta fiction. She wove this series flawlessly – through all the ups and downs, the back and forth through time – digging her claws into me with the first chapter.  Triumph was everything I could have possibly hoped for in the finale.

It was action packed – hot as fuck – and culminates everything that made me obsessed with the series in the first place.

After everything Jack & Caroline – their family and friends have been through – my god. It’s a lot to digest. It’s a lot to feel. And that’s exactly what I did. I feel in love with all of these characters that it was like a kick to the gut having to say goodbye.

I’ve begged and pleaded – maybe even threatened Cecilia that Jack & Caroline better get their happily ever after.

She did not disappoint.

I don’t know if a series of books has hit me as hard as these – the stories are tragic, suspenseful, frightening and sexy as hell. But even through everything Cecilia London sprinkles her famous sarcastic wit, the banter her characters engage in is some of the best stuff I’ve ever read. She’s had my laughing on minute, sobbing another, and curling my toes in anticipation of what Jack’s got up his sleeve.

You can’t pigeon hole this series. It’s not just a political thriller, it’s not just a romance – it’s everything and above all else, fucking amazing.

February has been a very hard month for me personally – a lot of stuff has popped up in my family, and with work and it’s been the most stressful two weeks ever. I keep my Kindle with me at all times. It’s always in my purse, and as I sat in many hospital rooms – cars to hospitals and hotel rooms. I re-read Triumph for the second time and it kept me sane. It kept me going. Caroline & Jack – everything they accomplished – everything they over came – the entire conclusion to this epic six book series gave me something to hold on to when i really thought I was going to lose it at any moment.

This book will always hold a special place in my heart – for a million different reasons. This one left it’s mark.

If you haven’t checked out The Bellator Saga yet – do so ASAP – and be thankful you started it after the series conclusion – Cecilia LOVES a cliff hanger ending.

Rising Democratic star Caroline Gerard hasn’t had an easy year.

~Synopsis~

“I’m never going to stop loving you, Caroline. It’s just not possible.” 

Major Caroline Gerard returns from a dangerous mission battered and bruised. Terrified to confront the emotional and physical gap between her and her husband, she’s determined to do whatever it takes to avoid reality.

Commander Jack McIntyre has been tasked with saving American democracy, but he has to save his marriage first. He’s desperate to regain the passionate connection that he and his wife once shared. And a man on a mission will sacrifice anything to succeed.

In the meantime, the rebellion is in need of a catalyst to spur international action to stop President Santos’ increasingly unstable behavior. As Caroline and Jack repair their hearts, each day brings new secrets and new challenges, and a revelation that could shatter everything they thought was true.

Rhapsody is the fifth book in The Bellator Saga. It should be read after the first four books in the series.

REVIEW

I’ve been devoted to this series since early 2015 when Dissident grabbed me, sucked me and wouldn’t let go. The Bellator Saga was one of my TOP favorite reads of 2015, and now with the fifth installment of Rhapsody – it might just hit my #1 Favorite read of 2016.

In Phoenix – the fourth book in the series, Jack & Caroline were finally reunited – though it was not the reunion we had hoped for. Caroline has suffered more physically and emotionally than any human being should have to. And all because she was standing up for what she believes in – the democracy that has kept our country and it’s people free. But as she and Jack navigated through a country that no longer resembles that – Caroline lost more than just her friends…. more than just her family…. more than just the beautiful life she and Jack had built together; she lost herself.

Even now, in Rhapsody – Caroline is safe – she’s physically safe, yet her toughest challenge is ahead of her; facing everything that has happened to her and the immeasurable amount of guilt and loss she’s suffered through fighting this revolution. I was desperate through this entire novel – desperate for Caroline to snap out of the pain and finally see what’s in front of her – everything we’ve loved about this series has surrounded these two – Jack and Caroline. But if Caroline can’t see what’s in front of her? Is there any hope?

The soul of this story – these two…. to see them be so close once again, only to be so far apart was fucking agonizing. I felt real pain for these two – my heart broke for them. I felt Caroline’s fear, and i felt Jack’s hope…. and also his frustrations. I ached with him – I felt the pull.

Jack is holding on so hard to the past and the memories of Caroline while he tries to get the woman before him to open up – to feel her pain – to acknowledge it and allow him to help her. But Caroline is drowning…. not sure how to break to the surface again.

But a person can only take so much…

Rhapsody is a significant piece in the Bellator Saga – a series that has captivated me from the very beginning. Caroline & Jack aren’t just characters – they’re living… breathing….tangible things for me. When they hurt – I hurt. I’ve felt every single sentence Cecilia London has written in this series. Rhapsody is no different – it’s an emotionally consuming novel that will leave you breathless with anticipation with each page.

The Bellator Saga is an all-consuming love affair full of suspense, humor and the kind of love and passion that keeps hope alive.
