The serial at last draws to a close in a spectacular, page-turning conclusion. On the verge of his long awaited release, Jeremy hopes to finally be able to put the nightmare of prison behind him. Enemies from within the prison as well as outside attempt to deny him freedom. Trey seeks escape from the vengeful scheme of Jeremy’s ex-lover, and Shontay, Corey, and Bobby yearn to find their happily-ever-afters.
Soaring Angel is a fine and fitting end to the Life Without Parole series.
There aren’t any surprises here but that didn’t ruin the fun of the book. I enjoyed seeing Jeremy and Trey together after several of them being separated. Their reunion was emotional and the sex was hot.
I had a few issues with this book, but they were basically the same ones I’ve mentioned with the previous installments. There’s a lot of head hopping here; POVs in the heads of other than the major characters. It wasn’t that I didn’t like the supporting characters, such as Shontay, but I was way more interested in Jeremy and Trey. It’s their story that made this entire series interesting and why I read all six books and enjoyed them all.
Everyone gets their deserved happy endings here and those who didn’t deserve one got what they rightly deserved. There was one relationship in the series that had bothered me—one between a correctional officer and an inmate—and I don’t want to spoil their ending but I think the ending was perfect. I’m glad that Erno finished up every character’s arc.
Overall this was an interesting series and I’d recommend it even with some of the issues I had. Erno is a hit or miss author for me but I consider Life Without Parole a major hit.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
