Phew! What a read….
This was a little of a dark read in the beginning. Riley, following her break-up with Josh goes on a downward spiral of self destruction with her new best friend alcohol. She winds up at a party with Em and Collin and gets a little more than wasted when she decides to ditch her friends. Dean makes an appearance and seizes the opportunity to help her home.
She wake up in his bed to the sound of her phone ringing and Dean getting off her – he almost rapes her but what he did is just as bad and for the rest of the story we are watching her deal with the aftermath of what happened.
Deans plays a part in this book albeit from the sidelines of that almost rape at the beginning and once again it is Josh who saves her for herself.
This is a strongly emotional book that still has you wanting to tear your hair out with Josh and Riley and all their misunderstanding and miscommunications. As they go frome being friends to lovers again it is clear that they are meant to be together they just need to stop letting each other get in the way of letting it happen.
This was a fantastic read and a great end to a series, though I feel that I am so emotionally connected to Riley and Josh that I could read about them forever – provided they start communication better 😉 lol
A bloody brilliant 5 star series for sure!!
About the Author
Once upon a time in the boot of Louisiana, a young girl made a mess of things and began writing dark poetry to cope. She often found herself day dreaming, creating stories in a far away land that didn’t exist and was always out of her reach. Her mission was to move on, find love and a reason to believe in the beautiful things in life. She didn’t expect to be counting her blessings daily for all that she has found since then. Her once dark poetry became colorful and bright—it became music. She found purpose and her make believe stories slowly vanished away. Her poetry also sat in the backseat as more important things took priority. However, life can catapult you in the blink of an eye. A long forgotten coping mechanism of writing would once again become her escape. This time, though, she realized that this escape where she created stories was not a curse, but a gift. Embracing her vice, she breathes life into her characters and poetically weaves together stories for readers to enjoy. She is no longer the young girl who feared the unknown, but is stronger and has faith that beautiful things will always be in reach. She is married to her best friend, and is a mom to three beautiful daughters who are her favorite cheerleaders. She is excited to have the opportunity to share her love of writing with readers. The stories are fictional, but they are real to her. She has always felt things passionately and this new journey as an author is no different. She is no longer looking back, but looking ahead to this amazing adventure with all of you. She invites you to connect with her if you desire to do so.
