After reading the first two books in this series I could not wait for this book to be released. I just needed more and it could not get here fast enough. Liquid Assets was beyond worth the wait. From beginning to end I was pulled into Max and Rachel's story. Within pages Max had crawled into my heart and stole my # 1 book boyfriend spot. I never thought that would happen. I could not help but fall in love him. While reading his story my heart shattered into billions of pieces and I am not sure I got them all back because I think he kept one. I just wanted to reach through my kindle and pull him out and protect him from his past. Rachel was an amazing female lead. Her heart is truely shown through out the entire book and you can't help but love her too.
MJ Carnal wrote one of the best books I have ever read with this book. The characters who I knew a little about from the first two books were well developed and very easy to relate. Within the first few chapters I felt like I really knew who they were. While reading this book I went through so many emotions. I was crying within the first few pages. Which quickly turned to fanning myself from the heat the pages were producing. Followed by laughing, more crying, OMG moments, more crying but happy tears this time, moments I wanted to physically harm characters, and the list goes on and on. It was the emotional ride that I crave from every book I read , but so rarely get one that is this amazing. The book flowed effortlessly and as a reader I could tell the emotion and hard work that was put into it. Also her ability to touch on real life situations that more people go through than anyone cares to admit was done with class while still educating the reader on one of the darker sides of our reality. With Liquid Assets MJ Carnal wrote my favorite book of 2015.
