Book Spotlight: The Finish Line by Kate Stewart

The Finish Line (Ravenhood #3) by Kate Stewart Date Released: January 26, 2021 About The Finish Line Secrets and Lies.. I’ve lived the entirety of my life wrapped up in subterfuge for one purpose—revenge.   Through the years, I lived more as an enigma than a man.   For so long, I denied I had a beating heart of my own.    Until her. Until she unearthed the starving vessel inside, forced me to acknowledge it, forced me to understand that I’m capable of bleeding the same as any other.   For that, we paid. We're still paying.   Yet, she demands it still, the useless heart of the ruthless thief and shameless villain she fell for. My fear is, I’m no longer that man.   With the lies I’ve told, the life I’ve led, my mistakes are beginning to catch up with me, day by day, one by one.    This is my last chance, and I have no intention of losing her again, but as the deception of my past starts to unravel and close in, shedding my humanity may be the only thing

Review: The Finish Line by Kate Stewart (The Ravenhood #3)

Note: An advanced reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author via Wordsmith Publicity. "Ma chatte. Mon corps. Ma femme. Mon  cœur. Ma vie." My pussy. My body. My woman. My heart. My life.   When Kate Stewart wrote the Ravenhood Duet , it was meant to be exactly that--a duet, meaning two books. Flock and E xodus landed on many a year-end best reads list last year--including my own--and for good reason. These books were like an even more elevated version of Stewart's writing, and she was already an amazing storyteller to begin with. She'd planned an e xtended epilogue for the duet, but that epilogue? Welp, it was not only e xtended but it e xpanded to the point that it's now a full-length novel and what a novel it is! I highly recommend you read this series in order. It's like a religious e xperience...minus the religion. Unless amazingly written romance is your religion. Wink. This is the story of Ezekiel Tobias King and Cecelia Leann Horner, otherwise kno
