How did I get it?:
I bought it!
Tobey wants a better life – for him and his girlfriend Callie Rose. He wants nothing to do with the gangs that rule the world he lives in. But when he’s offered the chance to earn some money just for making a few ‘deliveries’, just this once, would it hurt to say ‘yes’?
This book finalises the Noughts and Crosses series. I think many people don’t realise that this book does have four instalments and that’s because Checkmate seemingly wraps up the story. I don’t think it’s an essential read to ‘finish’ the Noughts and Crosses series, but I think it is an excellent addition to a very well written series.
You won’t come across Callum and Sephy’s relationship in this story. Sephy is included, of course, but Double Cross follows Tobey and Callie Rose. Tobey dives into the world of crime to attempt to make a better future for himself and Callie Rose. Tobey starts off dead against the gang culture, but he realises with some work, he could get some money in order to achieve a better life style.
I don’t want to say much about the story, as it is the end of a series, which I really do not want to spoil. I will say that this book is particularly action packed with some interesting events which add to the very dramatic story. Double Cross moves at a good pace and kept me turning the pages!
