Blurb:

Tristan Lopez is loyal to his brothers. He doesn’t really have a choice, born into a gang that has a chokehold on every kid that roams its streets. He gave his life to them willingly, knowing if he did then one day this kingdom, led by boys drunk with power and ruled by fear, would all be his.

He was loyal through it all. Loyal when prison took his dad away. Loyal when his face was touched by the cold metal of the rival gang’s gun. Loyal even though his mom begged him to run the moment she returned home from rehab.

He thought about becoming someone else. It was hard not to crave the life of a regular 17-year-old. It’s the only reason he stayed in school — to pretend. But he always fell back in line.

Loyal.

Riley Rojas didn’t belong in Tristan’s real world. She should have only been part of the fantasy, one of the many faces he got to pretend with amidst rows of metal chairs and desks and whiteboards with assignments. But there she was, moving boxes from the back of an old pick-up into a house Tristan had shot up on a dare with his friends only a few months before.

Tall enough to look him in the eyes and strong enough to fill his shadow, Riley took up space on his streets, her loud mouth fearless in the face of the gang leaders who terrified everyone else. She pushed Tristan around on the hard court, and she balled better than his friends — better than him sometimes. She challenged him. She needed him. He liked it. And when her pale blue eyes stared into his, he quit wanting to pretend.

He couldn’t ask her to leave because she’d only dig her heels in deeper. He couldn’t ask because he didn’t want her to go. She was blurring his lines. She was testing his loyalty.

He was falling in love.

And it was going to tear him apart.

Fox (Max Monroe)

Some things are meant to be; some aren’t.

I never thought this would be my life.
I never believed I could feel this way.

I don’t know where to go from here.
I never want to be anywhere else.

My whole world has changed.
She is my whole world.

I’m not sure how to be me again.
I’ve never felt more like myself.

I’ve never needed anyone, but I need him.
I love her. I’ll always love her.

But is our love enough? Can Levi and I really survive this?
Together, Ivy and I can survive anything.

Disclaimer: Max Monroe’s editor recommends readers purchase tissues in bulk prior to reading the deeply emotional and epic finale of the STONE COLD FOX Trilogy. Early readers have complained of the following symptoms: sobbing, happy tears, overwhelming elation, book hangovers, and the urge to re-read the entire STONE COLD FOX Trilogy after finishing FOX.

Guys, I don’t know exactly what I was expecting from Fox, the third book in the series, but I guess I was kind of expecting it to follow the vibes of the previous 2 books. It didn’t. Fox was a lot more emotional, without the component of mystery.

I really enjoyed it, though a bit less than the previous two books. I could see the relationship between Ivy and Levi grow a lot, and they both became more mature. Levi stepped up to the plate after the events of Cold, and it was amazing to see how much he had grown since book Stone.Ivy went through some traumatic stuff, but again, I really liked to see her rely on Levi, and be able to overcome everything that happened.

I was expecting certain things to have a higher impact than they really did.

From a certain point on, I felt like the events were a bit predictable, and maybe a bit too easy. I was expecting some drama, but overall, most of the book just felt like a huge epilogue (like Deanna mentioned on her review).

If you haven’t started this series yet, DO. The series is available on Kindle Unlimited, and I would advise you the read the three books in a row, so you can feel all the kicks. Enjoy.
