This will be long bc I have a lot of thoughts!
I love this authors words, how descriptive and beautifully she strings words together, as standalone scenes I would give many 5 stars. I highlighted so many quotes.
The series as a whole I just had issues with, possibly my own personal preferences getting in the way (no pun intended!) but I just never really connected with the male lead and that's prob bc the whole book he is interested in both sisters and it just chipped away at how I saw him. I think he just came across as having his cake and eating it too. He wanted Lake to move on but then you got the sense he would interfere in any path she took, which he does by showing up where she has went to start her life with a clean slate. He wanted to be able to sleep with her sister, build a life and a family with her....but also still make sure Lake did everything HE wanted and that just was beyond irritating. There was nothing wrong with Corbin, so there you have her with a worthy man you say you want for her and that isn't good enough. I understand he was making sacrifices and had a crappy upbringing but he hurt Lake the most of anyone and I just didn't feel enough was done to reconcile the selfish cruel things he did to her, it was written off simply bc he loved her more than her sister so be happy with that. Lets not even get into the fact she was too perfect for him but hey I will sleep with the sister bc shes been around the block...couple that with the whole virginity as a gift scene and blech. I didn't like Tiffany, but the framing was just to me a way of trying to keep Lake as the one he truly wanted even if he was with the sister, which I get but just don't like.
All in all I just felt he was given too many reasons to not want Lake or to fight for her, she was too young, too pure, too much passion, he felt like a monster wanting her etc also I think he should have had more POV in some of the more angsty parts, it was always Lake and so it never allowed me to connect with his pain over losing her or how he reacted to her leaving.
The twist that keeps them apart again is in theory believable but in the context that he could have had both sisters in the predicament was kind of not romantic. Like you were going to see the love of your life you say, take some precautions dude!
Lake is why this series gets 4 stars, I love her and just want to hug her! Going on her journey was brutal and bc Jessica made me feel that on such a visceral level is a testament to her writing. My only wish is she would have given Corbin a chance even if ultimately it wouldn't work out, I connected with him more as someone who was there for her in so many ways Manning just was not even with all his sacrifices that always conveniently still benefited him in the form of housing, a job, a person in his bed etc. Corbin let her be herself and Manning just wanted her to do the things he wanted for most of the series. The fact she was never allowed to connect with someone the way Manning was allowed to with Tiffany is a pet peeve of mine in romance books. The heroine always has to prop up the love story while the guy gets to hook up and have it mean nothing bc he really loves the heroine, why? Women can also romantically connect to other men even if they are in love with someone else.
Other issues: Tiffany did so much stuff and everyone just was like eh ok. No family issues resolved. No epilogue after a three book angst ridden journey. The ending was very much like a certain movie and so again Manning's grand gesture fell kind of flat for me, it did make me tear up though. I think I just was expecting something else.
So I would recommend this series because the words are beautiful, and just the whole moody tone is appealing. Very very angsty though and just not enough done on the heroes part to redeem him in my eyes totally in this book. I am happy Lake and Manning had their time but consider me a friend like Val who is side eying him always!
If you haven't read the series ** it needs to be read in order ** then you don't need to read the rest of my review. I don't want to spoil anything for readers who need to experience it for themselves. But if you HAVE and know the story surrounding Lake and Manning, then I can tell you that this one is just as angsty, just as emotional, and just as maddening as the first two books. miscommunication, missed connections, and ultimately anything that would go wrong for these two does. But you will get solace in the fact that there is closure in this one... You just have to READ IT to find out which direction this closure takes you.
Did you know, I literally found out TODAY that Jessica is writing a 4th book in the series? I am so excited that I practically jumped up and down when I read it. These characters need more!! Leaving it as this one ended simply wasn't enough for me, so I am SUPER excited that another book is in the making for February 2018. Stay tuned because the second that one hits the shelves I am grabbing it!!!
Anyway, if you like angsty, forbidden, and epic romances that span a large length of time that will make you all sorts of emotional then you need this book and the series. If you don't like cheating or love triangles then I would definitely skip it though. Because there is some of that going on and it was maddening!!!!!!!!! I was able to look past it though because I tend to keep an open mind about all books I read.
Oh please, please, please Jessica. I have never begged an author before, but I have no pride where when it comes to this series.
I laughed. I cried. I hurt. I was PISSED. I fell in love over and over again.
This series took me on an emotional rollercoaster. If a book can actually touch my emotions. Then. It. Is. Excellent! I am a hard core reader. Usually a book a day. No I am not a lazy wench. I am terminally ill. So I have the greatest honor of reading two books a day if I want to.
If you don't read this series, I can promise you that you will have missed out on something irreplaceable.
If this was scored 0 to 10, with ten being in the top ten best reads. Guess what? It would be a ten for me. I have never said this in a review.
Remember Jessica, I hate to play the last wish card on you. But if I must, I am not above it. I wish for one more book. 💚🙏💛 🙏 💜🙏 💙🙏
