When I Fall by Belinda McBride
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I can honestly say that I liked this read but not as much as the first one, An Uncommon Whore.
This book picks up from where the first one leaves off. Helios and Griffin have returned and Helios has become king. The story is told from Griffin's POV and we see just how different these two really are. Along the way we also learn more of their history and the romance they had before Helios was abducted. We also learn more about what really happened when their planet was invaded.
There are a lot of differences in writing style between the two books in this series. This one is more of a romance and less of an erotica. We see more of the political aspect of their society and more of the difficulties of not only being a same sex couple but one in power. They have the issues of continuing the royal bloodline as well as when it will be acceptable for them to marry. There were issues of secrets and trust between Griffin and Helios due not only to politics but painful aspects of the past. The strain on their relationship was evident as it must be in any couple living in the spotlight.
After reading An Uncommon Whore and enjoying it so much I was excited to continue with When I Fall. I don't think When I Fall could have been read alone, the first one could be. There's just too much that you wouldn't have understood without reading the first one. And I noticed that there is an opening for a part three. I wonder if she will continue the series even farther?
