Having It All is the 3rd book in Livia’s Punishment Pit series. Now, remember, these books are cliffhangers, but the following book comes out pretty quickly, so you aren’t going to have to wait too long to see what’s going to happen. We’re now on the home stretch, with the 2nd half of the series to come.
The first 2 books focused on Brianna and Markus, with Lukus around and some shots of Tiffany. This book focuses more on Lukus and Tiffany, with some side shots of Brianna and Markus. I’m glad that we don’t lose them altogether, since they were the original reason we got the books. I would hate to not see them. Altogether, though we’re in the 3rd book, and there has been so much action, it’s only been about a week from the 1st book to the end of the 3rd book.
Now, remember, these are all cliffhangers, and each book picks up immediately where the last one left off, so there are going to be spoilers for previous books. So, if you haven’t read the previous books and you don’t want to be spoiled, turn back now. Otherwise, you have been warned, and you have no one to blame but yourself.
So, we pick up after Brianna’s punishment with Markus. They are talking things out and figuring out the things that went wrong and what they can do to make things better.
Then we have Tiffany and Lukus. They are trying to figure out their own things right now. They are both attracted to each other, but there are concerns. On Tiffany’s part, she’s basically a BDSM newbie. For all that she’s read and watched, she’s never experienced. And she had to watch Brianna go through Jake’s torture, which had to really color her expectations and ideas. On Lukus’ part, he knows who he is and what he likes, and he’s nowhere near a newbie when it comes to BDSM. I mean, he owns a kink club. And he’s not a huge relationship guy, so having relationship feelings for Tiffany is new for him. And, to top it all off, she kicks his ass at basketball. Like he’s standing still, with his feet nailed to the floor. I don’t know why that just tickles me, but it really does, to no end.
I really like Tiffany. She’s sassy, fiesty, opiniated, loyal, strong, and loving. She has stood by her friend, Brianna, for years, and has been there to help put her together after everything that happened. She has been strong for Brianna, and in turn, Brianna has been strong for her, so it works well. It’s good to have good friends like that. She also overthinks things at times, which is something I think that all of us do, especially when she’s doing something new, which she is with Lukus. I really like Tiffany a lot.
With each book, I like Lukus even more. I understand why he did the things he did in the first book, but one of the things I really liked is that as he learned new information about the situation, he was able to adjust his actions. He didn’t just go Me Dom, Me Know Best. Of course, he still was all about him Dom, but you get the difference, I hope. I get it, but I’m not sure that I can quite eplain it.
I like Brianna and Markus more as we get to know them. Especially Markus. He made some admissions in this one that really changed the way that I thought about him.
I’m not happy that Briana had to go through the things with Jake that she did, but I’m happy that Markus is finally seeing the truth of things.
OK, that’s all for this one. Go check it out! Happy reading!
