Book Review: Creed (Unfinished Hero #2) by Kristen Ashley

The second book in the Unfinished Hero series was awesome! I loved the intensity and emotion and really getting to dive into Creed and Sylvie's history together. I loved them reconnecting and getting their HEA. Creed was a fantastic story!

Creed (Unfinished Hero #2) by Kristen Ashley

Way too young, eleven year old Tucker Creed and his six year old neighbor, Sylvie Bissenette, find they have something awful in common. Creed then decides he’s going to do everything in his limited power to shield his Sylvie from her ordeal. So he does and Creed and Sylvie form a bond that grows and blossoms with their ages.

They plot to leave their lives behind, the town they live in that will hold them down and the histories they share that, unless they break free, will bury them. Sylvie goes to their special place, Creed never shows and she doesn’t see him again until it’s too late.

With Creed gone, Sylvie is forced to endure a nightmare and do the unspeakable to end it. To deal, she develops a hard shell with sharp edges that very few can break through. So when Creed again finds his Sylvie, he discovers the girl he loved is locked away and he has to find his way back into her heart without getting shredded in the process.

5 out of 5 stars

Creed was an emotional, painful, and passionate story and I loved every second. I loved Sylvie and Creed, learning all about them, and was caught up in the intensity of it all as they found their way back together.

Sylvie was fantastic. I loved her attitude and strength and I felt for her and all she endured in her past. Creed was amazing. I loved how much he overcame to make a better life for himself. I liked how this was told in a past and present format really getting to know them from the beginning, their bond, and friendship, and how it grew into so much more. I loved them reconnecting in the present day, I could feel that underlying tension between them. It built up bit by bit really pulling me in, I couldn't wait to find out everything and have them come out on the other side.

I thought this was an incredible story filled with so many layers and I loved the development and build. It was definitely intense, these two had some seriously bad things happen to them that aren’t for the faint of heart and I loved all the healing and growth that took place for them. It was emotional and drama-filled but it also had some really sweet moments and some playful ones too. There's a nice amount of sexy times as well which were super-hot and did not disappoint.

This was an awesome story from beginning to end with a wonderful epilogue. I love how it wrapped up and where everyone was at. I enjoyed all the different characters and loved seeing Knight again and learning about his relationship with Sylvie. I loved all the different bonds she had with her coworkers and friends and the special moments involved. It just made my heart happy. Excellent read!

I love anti-heroes and all the intensity and gruffness in them but seeing the goodness and heart underneath. Do you like stories with an anti-hero? Let me know!
