Having read one other in this series I found it nice to revisit these friends again.
While it is not necessary to read the other books (I only read one other book out of the four), you may find you want to get to know the friends better after reading this one. I know I will probably go back and read the two I missed out on at some point.
I was given an ARC by the publisher for my honest review.
My rant (potential Spoilers ahead)- Some of the reviewers complained that it seemed more about the friends than about her and I get what they are saying but you have to remember that Hadley is all about her friends so to me it would be weird to suddenly have her ignore her friends and their lives. My problem with this book is that Hadley is very much into the whole fairy tale, happily ever after kind of love and the woman she meets seems like a good match in that they have chemistry and they have fashion in common. The downside is /*spoiler*/ Spencer does not believe in happily ever after, and when Hadley tries to break it off with Spencer because she doesn't want to be a good time girl, she want to build a relationship with someone, Spencer turns on the charm, ie. uses her sex appeal, and convinces her to date her anyway. What ensues is the rest of the book turning out pretty much how Hadley predicted it would go - Lots of good sex but any time relationship stuff came up Hadley would end up crushed and hurt(this happened 3 or 4 times). The kicker is the ending /*Spoiler Alert*/ Spencer gets a dream job offer and ... you guessed it Hadley gets hurt once again the worst yet. There was no romance in this book, It was all about how good the 2 were in bed and anytime anything remotely relationship oriented came up, Spencer freaked out and Hadley got hurt. I wanted someone to come in and sweep Hadley off her feet and treat her like a princess and give her the fairy tale romance she was looking for.
With the Seven Shores books, Brayden has, in my opinion, really upped her game. (I don't have these books in paperback, but I do have them in eBook and audio formats. I've gone through this series about 3 times - once reading, twice listening.) This series shows how Brayden has grown as an author. And, let's be honest, she's always been a good author.
The final book in the series, Love Like This, finally brings us to Hadley's story. Hadley, the ever- optimistic woman who loves a good theme party (with costumes) and Barry Manilow, has spent the last two years watching her friends find love. And here she is, reading a book. Poor Hadley.
Fortunately, we quickly meet Spencer Adair. (The back cover tells us that "Spencer Adair has a passion for fashion, but hates the fact that it rhymes.") Elle briefly mentioned Spencer in Sparks Like Ours when Hadley brought up her search for a great clothing designer. Once again, Brayden sets it up early.
Right from the top, Hadley and Spencer are physically attracted to each other, but their personalities are remarkably different. As is their outlook on love and relationships. Hadley believes in forever love. Spencer believes in chapters. It makes for an interesting courtship. And, oh my dear goodness, do we learn a thing or two about Hadley!
What I especially love about this final book of the series is how Brayden has kept all of her characters true to form throughout. And now, we get a full picture. A character can make a comment and, without a dialogue tag line, we know exactly who says it...because, of course she did. Similarly, the secondary characters have remained throughout all four books - Larry Herman and his infatuation with Hadley; Stephanie and her one-liners as she simply walks through a scene. This book was, perhaps, the funniest of all of them. I spent a lot of time really laughing!
Brayden is a master of the epilogue and she doesn't disappoint here. Since this is the last book in the series, it's important to have a wrap up for everyone, not just Hadley and Spencer. This epilogue is satisfying. It answers the right questions, but also leaves tiny openings should Brayden ever choose to visit Seven Shores again later. (Perhaps a short story or a novella?)
