Picking up where Brother Number 3 left off, both Max and Hector have been seriously injured, trying to protect Lilly. Luckily, the doctor says they should both be ok after surgery. Nobody seems to worry right away when Hector is the only one to wake up from surgery. Max is a fighter. He just needs more rest, so the family just shrugs it off. I have to say that I was a little worried right alongside Lilly on this one here, and rightly so. After a year passes, and Max still hasn't woke, Lilly overhears the doctor talking about how she should move on. So is it her fault that she runs back into the warm and comforting arms of Hector? I gave up hope on Max myself. Would Max? Why must everyone love Lilly so much?
Being in Max's room and having Hector and his brother Diego talking about Lilly and what happened in between them the night before just so happens to make Max move. This is what finally gets a rise out of him. And now that he is back, he wants it like before. I can't blame him for that either, yet I totally feel for Lilly. It's when Max decides to be forceful with Lilly and once again, put his job first that makes me hate him with a passion of fury. This is the final straw with Lilly. This is what finally pushes her into the arms of Hector. Unfortunately, Max refuses to give her a divorce.
So why is it that in the end, Lilly's life is put at stake yet again, Hector does the ultimate wrong, breaking my heart just as much as Lilly's, and is on the run? Hector is supposed to be a good guy. How can he do this to Lilly? He has now made her a target.
Recovering from the latest family trauma has made the Montiago family wake up to the fact that their priorities have definitely been misplaced. With Max throwing himself into the depths of his work as an FBI operative, he inadvertently sends the wrong message to his wife and brothers. In Relatively Close, the third book of the series, Lilly fights for the attention of her husband, until it becomes painfully clear that she is up against a mistress way more powerful than the ones she has fought before. Keeping it relatively close is something with which Lilly is way too familiar. She turns her attentions to another, only to find out that the reality of the business, which has kept her dripping in diamonds and living in mansions, is nothing more than an ugly reminder of El Diablo anda suelto: The devil running loose.
What will Lily do in this installment? Will she stay with Max and forgive him? Will she run off with Hector- Brother Number 3 or will she turn to Diego (the oldest brother) for comfort. My heart is torn for Lily. I know that deep down all she wants is be loved and have her family and be happy. As I was reading this I can see parts of myself in this character. It is amazing that how much we really were alike. Granted I never have cheated on my husband and NO!!!! He is not a FBI agent LOL. But lately I feel unwanted and unloved. (We all go through this stage at some time Don't we??) So with that said I definitely say that I could identify with Lily. I loved this series and I cannot wait until the next book comes out.
I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
Despite a slower-paced and not all-enthralling, middle, Relatively Close still earns five shiny stars in my opinion. There's everything in it that you've come to love about Lilly Montiago and the gang: captures, close calls with death, babies, and the never-ending Lilly-tradeoff between the brothers; as well as original plot twists and events that keeps the story moving on and interesting.
This book had me utterly confused for a while (which may have effected my view of the middle of the book) over which brother I thought should end up with Lilly. I'll not give spoilers and say how it ends, but I will say that each one of the three brothers have all screwed up with Lilly in ways that makes me think they are jerks. Max says it best, I think, when he says "Always remember, Lilly (and reader), there is no good one." And, like Lilly, even with that knowledge I keep wanting her to end up with "the good one." But I think that's one of the things that is so brilliant about Serrano's writing. It makes me want to keep reading and to root for at least one of the characters, even though it is plainly obvious that they all make dumb decisions.
All in all, Relatively Close is the best book in the series so far, and I cannot wait to read the next book in this series.
I was given this book for my honest opinion, no other compensation was received. This review only reflects my personal opinion.
