My Review: After the way the second book ended, I was on edge and couldn’t wait for the next one. I love Noah, and I wasn’t sure how he would be able to make up for the seriously stupid move he made at the end of book two. And throughout the book, I was stuck somewhere between wanting Olivia to get over herself and forgive him, and wanting her to make him suffer a little more. I loved Olivia for how strong and business savvy she was. But her analytical approach to matters of the heart frustrated me on more than a few occasions.
But because of Olivia and Noah’s completely different natures, I loved seeing the two of them come back together after such a big upset. It’s easy to see that these two work as a couple - they need each other. But now that the series has concluded - I still don’t know why Olivia disliked Noah so much in the beginning. They clearly liked hanging out when they were younger, I don’t think the author ever went into exactly why Olivia was so bitter as an adult. There was a brief mention of the unwillingness to sleep with each other when they were younger, but it’s hard to believe that Olivia would hold that against Noah for so many years.
I did like this series, but this volume didn’t feel like it had as much of a punch as the first book. It was definitely better than book two, which felt a bit more like a placeholder, or a way to further the plot, rather than its own book… but I still didn’t like it as much as the first in the series. But I really liked Kendall Ryan’s writing, so I can’t wait to check out more by her in the future!
Cover Lovin’: Fits perfectly with the series of the series.
Recommendation: This is the last book in the trilogy, so you’ll definitely need to have read the first two!
Final Rating: THREE POINT FIVE out of FIVE stars (3.5/5). A good end to this series, but it lacked the magic of the first book, at least for me. But Kendall Ryan is still on my TBR!
