A ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Review of Stains of Desire (Behind Closed Doors, Book #5) by Maggie Cole @GiveMeBooksPR #TuesdayBook Blog

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5

I’m not sure how, but each book seems to get better than the last. Yet, each book has been some of the best I’ve read in a series. I love the way these books are written with each character having their own book running parallel to the others, but while each book is about the path that the characters take to get their rescued partner to safety, each path has their own obstacles and situations to deal with. Each one has a deadly path no matter how you look at it. These books are full of action, danger, passion and loyalty from these men and strong women that hold a lot of secrets. It’s a series about corrupt politicians, powerful players, and the pawns in their power plays. I’ve loved each and every book in this series so far and I am so excited for the final book Risks of Temptation.

Axel and Penelope have an added obstacle in their path to freedom and safety, they have to find Millie, Penelope’s daughter that was taken from her several months after her abduction. With Penelope being the first woman to have been taken, she was with Santiago the longest and while I expected her time with Santiago to have been more brutal physically than it was, she endured a great pain and heartbreak when her daughter was taken from her and used as leverage over her.

Axel has promised Penelope to find Millie and bring her to safety but at what cost? He has to find a way to fulfill his promise, but his heart is breaking with each turn that he takes, and he isn’t sure that he can fulfill his promise to Penelope. The strength that these women have is amazing. They hold so much inside to protect other that it’s hard to believe they can still be as strong as they are to keep going to find safety and then to keep working with the men that rescued them to make sure that the powers that be don’t succeed in their path to rule. I am anxious to read the final book in the series but on the other hand, I am not excited for this series to end. It’s been a wild and wonderful ride in South America and these couples deserve their HEA, but I hate to see it end. I am anxious to read Malin and Emilia’s story though. I give this story a 5-star review and highly recommend this book and series to readers that are looking for something along the lines of espionage, secret dealings, and strong women that can take down some of the most powerful men in the world.
