*Hansel Part 4 is the final installment in this erotic fairy tale. Full disclosure: it's a dark read. If you don't enjoy mind-bending stories with disturbing twists, this story may not be for you. *
I love when I read the final part of a series and everything just comes together. Things were explained, things that I didn’t see coming at all. And not just one thing, there were several! I thought I had it all figured out at the end of part 3, but I was wrong. Ella managed to shock me with some of these revelations!
“I hate that this is your story. I’d do anything to change it.”
Lucas and Leah haven’t had an easy past. Lucas especially. Getting to really see everything Lucas went through was heartbreaking. Going into the past isn’t easy for Lucas. It almost breaks him. But Leah deserves that closure. She deserves to know what happened to him, to her, and the part he played in it all.
I hurt for Lucas. I love what he said about his past with Mother, how it must have been fate. At first that seems like a messed up thing to say, until he explained it. Then I felt all swoony.
I’ve enjoyed this twisted fairy tale series. Sexy and dark with a damaged man. Just my type of read. Overall, I enjoyed this final installment. I do with the ending would have given us a little more closure, but I was still happy with how things were wrapped up. 4 stars for part four, and 4 stars for the serial overall!
“All you have to have is half.” she whispers.
“You’re only half,” she murmurs, looking up into my eyes. “If you put two of us together, baby, all we need is half to make a whole.”
RELEASE DATE: December 1st, 2014
They were captives who shared a wall, and cut a hole in it so they could hold each other's hands. Until he killed their captor, Mother. Then he disappeared, and as the world swooped in to save the Children locked away in Mother's house, the girl called Gretel became...lost. No breadcrumbs.
Finding Hansel, years later, is the shock of Leah McKenzie's adult life. Finding out how far she'll go for him - that's no surprise.
Leah's given Hansel - Lucas, he says it is - every piece of herself. And he's been both cruel and kind.
What they share is dangerous.
What they feel is dark.
Their history is twisted.
Their hearts already broken.
And that's before the secrets are revealed.
My pulse quickens as I see a long lump on the bed farthest from where I’m standing.
For a moment, I think I hear him talking in his sleep.
For a moment, I think of sliding under the covers with him, just to enjoy the irony. We’re sleeping with a wall between us tonight, but instead of a hole he sawed, there’s a door he left propped open. For once, we can actually reach each other.
But he said he didn’t want your company.
I exercise my will power and tip-toe slowly around the hotel bed, so I’m standing right beside his sleeping form.
At least I think he’s sleeping.
His cheek is pressed against the pillow, and his unhurt hand is curled into a fist up near his chin.
I’m fighting the urge to touch him, battling the forbidden desire to lean down close enough so I can brush my lips over his damp hair. From where I’m standing, I can smell the shampoo he used. It’s fruity; sweet. It’s so at odds with his big, rugged body. As if to make me want him more, he shifts his hips a little, and the sheet covering his chest slips down, revealing huge shoulders, smooth, hard pecs, and the upper portion of his incredible abs.
That’s a lot of muscle there.
I take a step back, feeling exhilarated because he’s beautiful, and I’m a bad, bad girl for sneaking in to watch him sleep.
That’s when his hand shoots out and grabs my wrist.
I let out a little cry as he jerks me toward the bed. Then he’s sitting up. His hands close around my waist and I’m dragged atop his sheet-covered lap. He strokes up from my hips, over my sides, and over my bare shoulders, tickling my neck before he gets a firm grip on my face.
“What did I tell you,” he hisses, “about coming into my room?”
