"I'm never going to stop loving you, Caroline. It's just not possible." Major Caroline Gerard returns from a dangerous mission battered and bruised. Terrified to confront the emotional and physical gap between her and her husband, she's determined to do whatever it takes to avoid reality.
Commander Jack McIntyre has been tasked with saving American democracy, but he has to save his marriage first. He's desperate to regain the passionate connection that he and his wife once shared. And a man on a mission will sacrifice anything to succeed.
In the meantime, the rebellion is in need of a catalyst to spur international action to stop President Santos’ increasingly unstable behavior. As Caroline and Jack repair their hearts, each day brings new secrets and new challenges, and a revelation that could shatter everything they thought was true.
Rhapsody is the fifth book in The Bellator Saga. It should be read after the first four books in the series.
I was lucky to receive a ARC for Rhapsody, this is one of my favorite series and in which I fell in love with Cecilia London's writing. Anxious is not a strong enough word to describe how I was feeling knowing that I had book 5 in my hands and I could lose myself in this emotional, passionate, suspenseful love story of Jack and Caroline McIntryre.
Rhapsody is the fifth book so I am hoping that you have read them before you pick up this book and if you haven't, I recommend that you add it to your library so you're prepared. By now you would have fallen in love with Jack McIntyre and the love and passion he has for his wife. Caroline Gerald would be up there with one of the strongest, most beautiful, lost and tormented characters I have ever read. Her story of losing the ones she loves, her passionate love with her husband and the torture she endures will literally break your heart.
In book 4 Phoenix, we are left with a very angry, confused and lost Caroline, she wants to forget her past and that includes her husband. Jack is determined to remind her of what they had but is frustrated with her behavior ( you will find yourself feeling the same way). Caroline sets off on a dangerous mission and that is where we are left off, Will Caroline complete her mission and come back alive?
Caroline returns emotionally broken and bruised. I was so afraid, after starting the beginning of Rhapsody that this was going to be another book of Carolines need to push everyone away and... it is. Except, that this time the story goes more into details and I found myself feeling every emotion Caroline was going through and why remembering her past and the people in it would tear her apart. I found myself in tears at times. If only Caroline realized that the person who can help get her through this has been standing beside her all this time. Is Caroline willing to open up and talk about her time tortured at the FED and those she loved and lost during that time she was captured?
Jack is willing to stand by his wife for as long as it would take, he sits by hoping she will remember the family, love and passion they had. He also lives with guilt and when it's thrown in his face, is he willing to take the verbal and physical attacks from his wife? Jack's dominance, strength, passion, love and even his weakness will melt your heart.
Rhapsody has everything I wanted for the fifth book, it answers questions I had from the series, it has that steamy passion that sends tingles down your spine, and it kept me wanting more. I loved every moment reading this story and I am in no rush for the sixth and final book. How will I be able to put a end to two amazing characters? This is another 5 star must read by Cecilia London and I recommend this series wholeheartedly.
