Three little words are all it takes to rip his world apart. Lost in his own affliction, Sy has been living in a darkness that he doesn't ever want to let go of.

Until she arrives and shines her light so bright that nothing else mattered.

She was only in it for the chase, for the thrill of capturing the unattainable.
But what happens when her world shatters around her, spiraling her into the darkness beside him?

Can his affliction be her resurrection?
Or will two lost souls living in the depths of deception let it destroy them?

By SpiceBook one in the Knight’s Rebel’s Series was almost a 5 star read for me so I was really looking forward to diving into this one.  Affliction would have been a 5 star read for me except for one thing – I was a little blindsided by the main theme- View Spoiler »  These are huge triggers for some people and the blurb should have warned of this.  It’s not my favorite subject matter and a little forewarning would have made this a better read.  It also makes it quite a tear-jerker and I need to be in the right frame of mind for that kind of thing.

Sy and Holly were a great couple and I loved them together.  Sy was an unbelievable asshole at first, almost to an unforgivable degree.  This seems to be a line this author likes to get close to crossing with her alphas but they end up redeeming themselves.  He was also a definite wounded bird and I ended up loving him by the end because redeem himself he did.

Holly wasn’t as strong a heroine as Kadence was in book one.  In fact, she spent a lot of the book a shadow of her former self.  Although understandable, I missed the old Holly and would have liked to see glimmers of her sooner.

There were some hot and sexy times but this was more of an emotional journey than an MC book.  There was a bad guy, and I was a bit disappointed at the way that ended up.  It felt like a bit of a loose end that was never tied up.

Overall, I liked it and can’t wait to read Jesse’s story when it finally gets here.

Rating: 4 Redeeming Stars
