Travis is the third installment of the Alluring Indulgence series by Nicole Edwards. This review will hold SPOILERS for not only Travis, but Kaleb and Zane (the first two books in the series) as well. I tried to write this review without spoilers but found it impossible. However, I did try to keep them as few as possible.
I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars. If you enjoyed the first two books in this series, then I think you will love this book!
Travis is the oldest of the Walker Brothers but he has always been the most mysterious. Ten years ago he made a decision that changed his life forever. Now those decisions are coming back to bit him in the ass. Without his world thrown into chaos, what will Travis do?
This was the hardest of the three books for me to get into, but it ended up being my favorite so far. The character building that occurred in this novel was amazing. There are three main characters in this novel—Travis, Gage, and Kylie. Travis is the oldest of the Walker Brothers. Gage is Kaleb’s best friend. Kylie is Travis’s long-lost wife.
There was a build-up of the relationship between Travis and Gage in the previous book and I complained about it in my review for Zane, but now I am really glad that it happened. The tension that was already apparent between them took the story to a whole other level, allowing for the tension with Kylie to be the main focus for a while.
I was a little frustrated in the beginning because way too much time was spent on Kylie viewing Gage’s house. I was extremely bored listening to her talk about what she was planning on doing to it. It wasn’t until about 15% of the way in that I got invested in the story.
I NEEDED to know how it was all going to play out. As with most romance stories, you go in knowing that you are going to get a happily ever after. It isn’t about where the story ends but how it gets there and with this story it was quite a ride.
The relationship dynamic between Travis, Gage, and Kylie was really interesting to me. While I had read a few similar stories in the past I had never read one quite like this. Edwards wrote from all three POVs so you got to know each character on a very intimate level.
Once again this book had a few scenes that were out of my comfort zone but the more I read Edwards work the more I am coming to expect that so it doesn’t bother me as much.
There were a few chapters told from a fourth POV, Curtis. I didn’t like the way Edwards threw in random POV’s in Zane, but in this story, it worked. I liked getting to see behind the scenes a little bit. I think she has set up the next few books nicely and I am eager to dive into them and find out what happens.
As I said above, I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars and if you liked the first two books in this series then I think you will love this one as well!
