I think to no one’s surprise here I liked the book. My head is still reeling from all the new things with Ty and Zane. Definitely spinning with Nick. Then there is Nick and Ty and that fucking cliff. My meta heart exploded.
So, these are my thoughts. Some plot related. Some character. Some review related. There will be more thoughts later, I can promise you that, but then again, you knew that about me.
"Want to make some noise on our side?"
"What’d you have in mind?"
"The kind of noise that you have to hold on to the headboard for."
Ball & Chain by Abigail Roux
The laugh I just did probably was my evilest laugh yet.
Guys, what if this is what Ball & Chain will be like. We are all excited to read it, and pretty sure everyone we care about survives, and omg Ty and Zane are together again, bbs…
But then, Abi turns all Red Queen, and it is painful and horrible, and there is blood. Oh, oh so much blood. And we are not ready, and Abi is all cackling from her corner and, and…I need this fucking book.
Now that people have started getting their book copies of Ball & Chain, I’ve started this new blog as a place to post any spoiler posts that I know I’ll want to read latter. So, if your on the slow ebook path like me please feel free to check this blog out when your ready.
Things I’m thinking of during dishes/stuff. What if the whole damn Grady family snuffs it during Ball & Chain, and the only one left over is Ty (because reasons). I wouldn’t put it past the Red Queen. Why else that gif of the brush from afar as the girl cries in the toilet pot. Somebody(ies) dearly beloved will pass I’m sure of it. I’m probably over thinking this aren’t I. I blame Melody for planting that seed with Deuce… *still curling and hissing around him*
I just realized that Zane had to face the calender release alone. Wonder how that went? Hmmmmm…
Ryan Morelli will probably have that bad boy put up on his wall.
Ryan Morelli probably bought multiple copies.
I am curious as to how that went and what kind of teasing Zane got. I imagine he got quite a bit of teasing from his co-workers.
I am not sure we will learn. They are already in Scotland in chapter 2. It seems more Abi is moving on to the wedding and MURDER.
May I introduce, Equi and Nox.
They are 2 months old and freshly adopted. They are also not littermates, so it took a lot of scratching, chasing, hissing, and general petting to get them to pose. My older cat Oren is off pouting in the other room though.
Deuce wrapped him up in a hug, his eyes squeezed shut, and when he spoke to Ty in a low whisper, his voice wavered. “You’ll always be my hero, Beaumont.”
