I Loved It!
What an amazing conclusion to Athena and Webb’s story! A is a fast paced book that once I picked up I was unable to put down!
After finishing W I had to read A! I’m glad that this book had been released already, because I am not sure if I would have been able to wait after the ending in W! Webb is away from Athena and so for the first few chapters all we get is Webb’s point of view. The torment he is going through not knowing what is going on with Athena, you feel his pain. My heart was breaking for him and I felt the anger inside of him as well. I wanted to hurt the people responsible for all the pain these characters were going through just as much as Webb did, but really I just wanted them safe and sound. When Webb is reunited with Athena, I was scared she was going to pull away, but really it only brought the two of them closer, and it proved that these two truly do belong to one another.
With Athena safe, that doesn’t mean that they are in the clear. There is still someone after Athena and her father, and Webb and Liam are doing everything to find them and bring them to justice, while still giving Athena the life she deserves. I adored Athena’s makeshift 21st birthday and the one she got when she was able to go out and celebrate. Seeing her friends and Webb finally all getting along and becoming one unit was amazing, and seeing Athena truly happy and living the life she’s always wanted was beautiful.
We also in this book get to hear Webb’s secret and oh what a secret it is, and it will break your heart and it is one you won’t see coming. The way Athena handles it shows how much older and wiser she is beyond her years, and how unbreakable her and Webb’s bond truly is. When everything comes out and we find out who is after Athena and why, the way it was handled was amazing. The purity in Webb, Athena and even Athena’s fathers hearts is beautiful, even after all they have been through.
This story was a perfect conclusion to Athena and Webb’s story, full of mystery, angst, love and suspense. I couldn’t get enough of them and as much as it pained me to say goodbye to these characters, I loved how their story ended. I can only hope that Anne will give us stories for the secondary characters as I would love to see Liam, Denton, Mario, and Dyan all get their chances at love (and maybe we can see Webb and Athena in their stories too!). If you’re looking for a duet with the perfect mixture of romance and suspense, definitely pick up the W Duet by Anne Leigh today, you will not regret it!
