~ Synopsis ~
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 shes 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.

I don’t even know how to start this review. Phoenix had me in such emotional turmoil….. the angst…. the suspense… and Jack? *Sigh*
Phoenix, being the fourth book in the series I was prepared. Or so I thought…
I try to go into each of these books with some knowledge that Ms. London is going to eviscerate me in some way shape or form, because I’m attached to these characters in a way I rarely feel. They’ve become a tangible thing at this point in my mind. I’m invested, and after everything they went through in Sojourn? I knew Cecilia London wasn’t finished – she would take us through even more and she did not disappoint.
It’s impossible to pick a favorite in this series – all four books thus far are equally emotional and addictive. Typically in a series I’ll find there’s a lull somewhere in the story, but not with the Bellator Saga.
Phoenix is different – Caroline is struggling to face everything she’s been working so hard to forget and Jack? Jack is trying…. god is he trying his hardest to be by her side throughout – if she’d only let him. Everything I originally fell in love with throughout this series is in Phoenix – even if the story is a bit different, everything that made me fall in love with Jack & Caroline is here… and this ever evolving series is far from over.
Phoenix left me with so many hard-core emotions I really didn’t know what to do with myself. I read this book basically in one sitting. I cried with Caroline, I felt the desperate hopelessness of both Jack and Caroline…. I felt every single word in this book. Cecilia London is the master of suspenseful emotions… leaving you on the verge of a nervous breakdown one second and giving you snippets of hope you will cling onto for dear life.
Phoenix is an open wound – unapologetic and raw. I felt many things throughout this series, but Phoenix? This book hit me in the feels so hard it definitely left a mark.
