Book Review - SELFLESS by SHANTEL TESSIER
See what our review team is saying about Selfless
This is the conclusion to the Selfish Series and what a wonderful way to end the series. So many ups and downs that I felt like I had whiplash. The love story between Ryder and Ashlynn, a love to hate to love story with some villains thrown in between. Great love story.
An awesome conclusion to this amazing series!!
Having read Selfish and Myself I was sooo looking forward to the conclusion of Ryder and Ashlyn's story and boy oh boy Shantel Tessier did not disappoint!! Ashlyn and Ryder are an amazing couple and I finished this book in one go, It was THAT GOOD. This story has some suspense, angst, sexiness, and humor (when Ryder first saw Harry, Ashlyn's Sphynx) it is also a feel good love story where Ryder will stop at nothing to get Ashlyn back, and Ashlyn does everything in her power to keep her heart intact.
An awesome conclusion to this amazing series!! Can't wait to see what else this new to me author brings out next.
I absolutely loved this book! Ashlyn and Ryder have so much chemistry, there are parts in this story where you are laughing out loud, parts that have tears streaming down your face and then there are some parts where you want to go in and beat some sense in to them. I LOVE Shantel's writing style, she really knows how to drag you in and make you feel exactly what her characters are feeling. This book is an amazing read and I couldn't put it down.
Selfless is book three in the Selfish series. While I was able to follow along, it is definitely NOT a stand alone. Since I had not read the first two books, I missed out on a lot! But, no worries, I will now just have to read books one and two. Ashlyn and Ryder's story is full of passion and much drama!! Through it all, I appreciate how Ashlyn kept her strength and kept was important to her in focus. Ryder had so much thrown at him in this book, that it was hard not to feel sorry for him. Even when he was being an a**! The book was very well written, easy to follow along with, and while there are a lot of characters it was easy to keep up with them.
What a great conclusion to a whirlwind romance that had some heart stopping moments. The beginning of this picks up where Selfish left off. Ryder and Ashlyn's story is full of heartache, with some drama filled moments that will have you ready to jump into the book and knock some heads. Ryder is stubborn in this one but oh man I loved him. He is a bit of an alpha and once he figured out his shit his relentless pursuit of Ashlyn is endearing, a little bit funny at times and a whole lot sexy. There are some villains in this book that literally made me stabby one more then all the others. Ashlyn and Ryder's romance isn't the typical courtship it's intense, it's emotional and it's all consuming. A great ending to this series.
ASHLYN I went against all I believed in and fell in love with what should have been a one-night stand! I fought it, tried to make up rules to prevent the inevitable, but somehow, he knew all along. He understood what I wanted and was willing to comply. I was the one who took him for granted. I was the one who made him walk away. And now, he’s gone and I’m left with nothing but my thoughts and regrets. He was never supposed to be my happily ever after. But my favorite love story ends in tragedy, so why wouldn’t mine? RYDER I played the white knight, doing what every woman dreams of to win her over, yet it still got me nowhere! But what did I expect? I wasn’t the man she wanted! Nothing I could have done would have landed me the girl. I guess love is funny that way. One minute, you think you have the girl, and the next, you realize you were blinded. Walking away was hard, but watching her with another man was harder. Sometimes you have to pick your battles, and I know when I’ve lost. Love shouldn’t be a game, but I learned someone always loses. For once, I wasn’t the one being selfish, but I was the one who paid the price.
