My Review:

Wow! I am really struggling to find the words to explain just how brilliant this book is. The author has managed to leave many of her readers speechless with this dramatic conclusion to the phenomenal Vortex series. From beginning to end this novel is packed full of drama, suspense, romance and unexpected twist and turns that leave the reader desperate for more. This series has gotten better and better as it has went on and this book is the percent conclusion to a brilliant series. ‘Deuce’ has the reader hooked from the start and keeps them up at night wanting to see what will happen next in this rollercoaster novel. If you are going to read this series you will have to read it in order otherwise it won’t make sense. The reader is draw in by this book and it’s unique plot almost instantly. Janine Caldwell cleverly has a dual perspective in her book which allows the reader to easily connect with both characters. As the reader I thoroughly enjoyed reading Trent’s perspective as well as Cassie’s.  The drama contained in this novel along side the fantastic romance keeps the reader wanting more. With the twist and turns the author had written her readers will be on the edge if their seats.
