But there is Bash. The man who has been in love with Eve since he was a young boy. She is all he knows. He will rather die or kill than be without her…

Lisa's Review - 2 out of 5 stars

After finishing Love, Succumb, I can honestly say I have no idea what just happened in that big. There was a lot of crazy stuff going on, with little bits of back history thrown in to pad the story out, and some crazy characters. It was like chucking them all in one big blender and this was the result.

Rene sets eyes on Eve, Eve meets Rene, the instant their eyes meet this whole intense, burning connection, and even though Eve is with Bash Rose, kinda, they cannot help the way they feel about each other. This for me is a plot line I dislike. I just cannot find myself to believe any couple who fall into this crazy love where it hurts not to see each other after ten minutes. It is just too unrealistic for my liking.

Eve seems like this kickass, strong female lead. We get tiny snippets from her past, but it is obvious there is a ton more information into her back story and I wish more of it had been in this book. The same with Rene. He is that cocky, arrogant male character that you think you hate, but little slithers off his personality make you warm to him and you think he is okay.

There were just so many plot holes in the book that it made it hard to concentrate on the story, and the beginning of the book really did not add up to the end of the book. I am guessing that is because Love, Succumb is going to be the first book in a saga, but even with a saga I like the individual books to end tied up and making sense. I really didn't feel that with this book.

If anything, I hope in some of the other books, as well as finding out more about Eve's background, it would be nice to have some that tell more of her flatmate's, Ella and Sam's backgrounds, as I think they would make interesting enough stories alone without the need for the men!
