Buttons and Pain by Penelope Sky

This isn’t he third book in the Buttons series.

When I saw my escape, I took it.
Now I’m in New York City and trying to get my life back on track.
Despite the tracker in my ankle, Crow hasn’t come for me.
He hasn’t even called me.
I told him the depth of my feelings but he cruelly rejected them.
Maybe he’s forgotten about me.
One day, I walk into my apartment and spot the pile of buttons on the counter.
I never left them there, and there’s only one explanation for their presence.
Maybe Crow hasn’t forgotten me after all

I loved reading this book. The characters are fantastic and I love the story.

The last book left me feeling mad and frustrated with Crow, but he soon redeemed himself in this book. I loved watching him accept and embrace his feelings. I think he needed to see what his life would be like without Pearl in order for them to get where they ended up. It made him grow as a person and I absolutely loved it.

Pearl is such a strong character. It was great seeing her slowly rebuilding her life, especially after being heartbroken. As much as I wanted Crow and Pearl to be together, I think it was a good thing that she didn’t make it easy for him. It forced him to accept how he truly felt.

The spice between them had been hot the entire time, but the added passion and love in this book was great to see. It was great seeing them move forward and develop their relationship to something real.

Cane has really grown on me, especially in this book. I loved seeing Pearl sacrifice herself for him, but of course, she also had a plan. I’m glad that she got to get her revenge in the end.

Overall, I really ended this book. I’m looking forward to seeing Cane’s POV in the next book. I would definitely recommend it.

My rating: 5/5*
