"I would almost rather spend time alone with the voices in my head than with any men made from flesh and blood."
I was extremely sad when I finished Clarity by Loretta Lost. I absolutely loved that series and was excited to learn that End of Eternity is another series that features the same characters from Clarity. The only difference is, is that End of Eternity is Carmen's story, while Clarity is Helen's.
This books picks up after the hanging in Clarity book 3. Carmen is all shook up at the sight of her dead husband. A lawyer claiming to be her husbands bestfriend, arrives and tries to be there for Carmen. Brad is really creepy and extremely determined to take care of Carmen. Meeting Brad will forever ruin a part of Carmen. Why is brad so similar to Grayson? Were these two really bestfriends? Is Brad falling for Carmen? Carmen has her eye on Owen, who is actually in a very committed relationship. Will she run to Brad because she can't have Owen? Brad is a very bad man.
"You're the most beautiful woman I've ever seen. And trust me, I've seen a lot of beautiful women; sometimes I just sit and watch The Playboy Channel all day."
I know I have probably mentioned this before, but I am absolutely amazed at how easy these stories all flow together. Between Helen and Carmen, there is so much going on, and somehow Loretta makes everything come together and make sense in the end. Carmen and Helen have both been through so much. I found myself wondering when they would catch a break and just be able to be happy. The End of Eternity series is a very intense and suspenseful series. Book one was heart breaking, and allowed you to see just how crazy some people can be. Brad and Grayson both have their problems, similar or not. These problems have a source and were created somewhere, somehow and that's when these books really start to get good. Loretta has given us so much history and background information on these characters that it is so very easy to love them. Her characters are my friends and her books play in mind like soap operas! So full of excitement, drama, love, heartbreak, betrayal, and probably almost anything you can think of.
I am very excited to dive into another series by the lovely Loretta Lost!
