Title: Fervent
Author: Gemma James
Series: Condemned #3
 Release Date: April 30, 2015

I never imagined things could get worse, but they do. The men who took us show no mercy. They won’t stop until they’ve destroyed Rafe for something he has no memory of, and I’m their weapon of choice.
Tortured and defiled, they make me wish I was back in that cabin where death was favorable to drawing another breath, but our captors can’t break what’s already broken.
What scares me is the madness I see festering inside Rafe. I’ve taken his freedom, his career, his reputation, yet despite all I’ve done, he’s determined to fight for me, kill for me, give everything he is for me.
He’ll even die for me.

FERVENT is a new adult dark romance with disturbing themes and explicit content, including sexual scenes and violence that may offend some. Intended for mature audiences. Part three of the CONDEMNED series. This is not a stand-alone read! Please begin with TORRENT and RAMPANT, otherwise, FERVENT might not make much sense.

My Review

I finding it hard to write this review. I am a big fan of this story. However I was not completely engulfed in this book.

This is the next chapter in the Condemned series and we have reached a point where both Rafe and Alex are fighting for their lives. As with both the first two books, there is a high and I mean super high level of intensity and thrill, some terror filled scenes and some scenes where you literally cringe imagining and visualizing it all in your head. Gemma James is a master at getting underneath your skin and pushing the boundaries of your comfort when it comes to her story telling. She creates this dark and disturbing situation in which these characters find themselves in and out of it she births a sense of strength, resilience, undeniable love and devotion. Rafe and Alex will do anything for each other, anything to protect the life of the other no matter how vile. Despite how broken these characters are, how dark and painful some of their innermost thoughts appear there is a love that is indescribable between them, a bond that can never be undone. This is what is phenomenal about this story and this next chapter.

My only problem, was that there was so much going on outside these two characters, maybe too much. Gemma drops a lot of revelations in this book, so much so it equates to dropping an atomic bomb on the storyline. I thought it might have been too much, maybe too complicated. There are even some situations that I found to be unnecessary as they did nothing to add to the storyline except to cause a shock to the reader's system. I also found some scenes a bit repetitive.

All in all this is still a great next chapter in this story and I am looking forward to seeing what kind of finale Gemma is going to give us in the last book. I have a feeling its going to be quite explosive both emotionally and physically
