Outsider (Exodus End, #2) by Olivia Cunning



Reviewed by Tabatha


Olivia's books are always some of my favorite reads. No question about it, the woman can write rock star books like no other.  She captured my heart with the Sinners series, and this spin-off with Exodus End hasn't disappointed me in the least. *blissful sigh* Who wouldn't want to revisit the dynamic relationship between these three characters? I mean, Trey is enough to make me want to read this story, but throwing in Reagan and Ethan it packs one heck of a punch.

I will caution that you need to read the previous book. I'll even go further and say that it would be even better if you've read the entire Sinners series as well to fully understand everything going on in Outsider to get the full enjoyment out of it. I couldn't help but love that so many of the previous characters are all present in this story, but that could be confusing to some given the backstory leading into Outsider. 

So in Outsider this sexy trio is faced with being publicly outed in more ways than one. Ethan is still hiding in the closet fearing rejection from his family. Reagan is hiding her sexuality in fear of not only her father's rejection, but also the world not taking her seriously as a musician as well. Then we have Trey. The poor guy is caught up with both of his lovers wanting to hide, and all he wants to do is proclaim to the world that they are both his. It's heartbreaking at times for this trio, and the press situation revolving around them doesn't help when someone close to them seems to have nefarious reasons for outing the trio. 

Overall, this was another great read from Cunning. The only spot I found issue with was that I wanted more resolution where the scandal was concerned. Having read many of Olivia's stories in the past, I'm sure she is building to a big reveal, but I just needed more resolution than I got there at the end. Other than that, this book was a great addition to my favorites list, and I just know you guys are going to love it as much as I did!
