THE STORY: In this third book in the trilogy about Nick and Avery, the two are apart after Avery finds out about Nick's deceptions. Yet these two damaged people are drawn back together just as Avery is beginning to rebuild her life. Now there are even more secrets from the past that come back. All must be resolved if these two have any possibility of moving forward.
OPINION: This was a good ending to the series, but honestly, by the time these two get back together, I think I had had enough of their drama. After all the drama and "betrayal" and anger that keeps the two apart for a year, they seem to get back together without much having been done.
I'm wondering if this series would feel better for me if I re-read it all at once. Knowing that the cliffhangers between the books will happen, knowing that Nick and Avery will have a angsty, drama-filled, off and on, hot and cold relationship, I might like the entirety of the drama better. I think the wait between the segments tired me somewhat of the drama (although I'm usually a great fan of angst filled, over the top stories). For some reason, little things bugged me in this story. "Enough already" I said a couple of times. I don't believe you are really going to stay away and I don't really understand why a year had to pass before the action picks up here.
I liked so much of this story overall, but those little things just kept itching me, until I found that it was good, but not great. I think the last half of this book is better than the first half, but one thing that kept bothering me is that it seemed that Avery becomes demanding that everything be done her way. In some ways, it felt like Nick wasn't so much changed as neutered in parts of this book as he desperately tries to do what he can to hang onto Avery. I do like men who have done wrong to grovel, but I still want them to be the strong, dominate men they are. Just something about the formulation here bothered me.
WORTH MENTIONING: This book has discussions of sexual abuse.
CONNECTED BOOKS: For 100 Reasons is the third and final book in the 100 Reasons Trilogy. This book should only be read as part of the trilogy since the books follow the relationship of one couple and thus depend upon the information in the prior books.
STAR RATING: I give this book 3 stars.
The previous book, For 100 Nights, ended on a monumental cliffhanger where Dominic Baine's compulsion was exposed and ended his relationship with Avery Ross. Dominic treated his relationship like he treated all of his business dealings. He found something he wanted to acquire and ruthlessly put a plan of action that would result in a complete takeover. What Dominic didn't realize is that people aren't tangible things like businesses. They are unpredictable, highly emotional, and subject to change at any given moment. He could argue his intentions were pure where Avery was concerned but the payoff was in his favor. What he didn't realize is that his actions would result in exposing all of his vulnerabilites and deeply buried secrets. He also didn't realize that his actions were motivated by the heart rather than his insatiable needs. He walked into the relationship a confident, powerful man and was reduced to a broken man with the fragments of his soul spread out from New York to Miami. In essence, he was a man who needed to be loved. His soul recognized Avery the moment he laid eyes on her artwork. His mind tried to take control by manipulating her life. His heart bled the moment she took her life back. The only thing he can do is bare his soul with complete honesty and beg for forgiveness. He has to be willing to face his demons and become whole before he can fully give all of his heart. That's the only thing Avery wants from him.
Although the title indicates For 100 Reasons, there really is only one reason that matters... LOVE.
Lara Adrian delivered an emotional and powerful conclusion that validated every word in this sensational series.
Top international reviews
Nick and Avery are struggling with their feelings after the revelation that broke Avery's heart. Nick isn't unscathed either! Neither of them knows what the other one is going through. Avery being a survivor is making the most of what she does best. Putting all her efforts into her talent which is actually paying off, but the one thing she craves is out of her reach. For once, Nick doesn't know how to go about getting what he wants. His secrets are so dark that he wants to keep them buried as deep as he can. If only that was the solution!
Avoiding each other hasn't been easy, but they have managed until now! It only takes one chance encounter for them to have the profound desire to rekindle what they once had. Avery isn't sure that she can ever trust Nick again. She can't afford to go through another heartache. Can Nick prove that he is worthy of her trust?
This series has been the ultimate emotional rollercoaster, but this last installment brings so much more to the surface. Finally, the reasons for Nick's deep seated torments come to light. The twist at the end is unexpected and astonishing. The chemistry between Nick and Avery is as intense and as undeniable as ever. There is more than lust to their relationship. It's sensual, loving and beautiful.
I received a complimentary eARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.
It took her quite a bit to get this one done but it was worth the wait for me.
I loved these characters so much and was happy to read their HAE.
Well done Lara. Can't wait for my next read from you.
A nicely twisted post line mixes with sassy romance.
Sorry the series has ended, would like to hear about them in a 5 years time.
