Basic story: Lola has made good her escape from Beau and is on the road. She’s determined to stay under the radar, so her location remains secret. She also sets out to find herself – deciding who she is and what she’s going to do with the rest of her life.
Beau at first thought that Lola’s departure was a misunderstanding or that she was taken away against her will. As the realisation dawns that she has left of her own volition and may not want to be found, he is distraught, angry and bewildered. He will find her – and when he does, he doesn’t know whether he’ll kiss her or wring her neck…
As the pair work through their feelings separately, they’re both surprised by what they discover. Love means getting hurt and being willing to forgive. Will they manage it?
Why you should read it: If you’ve been enthralled with the Night Fever series, then you owe it to yourself to see how it all ends. Beau and Lola have been on quite the journey and here is where their adventure ends. Lola and Beau do A LOT of soul searching in this last book, and find out tons about themselves as people in the process. I enjoyed the game of cat and mouse between them, Lola always one step ahead, seemingly. (I may have hummed the theme tune to Catch me if You Can while reading…)
What you might hate: I should caution you now, the main characters spend most of their time apart in this book. This surprised me a lot. I keep checking the time left in book on my Kindle thinking, when are they going to reconnect? I got a little impatient with Lola and Beau’s inner monologues too if I’m honest, as they went back and forth, back and forth. I wanted them to have these conversations together.
Rating: 3/5. Yes, it was a satisfying end to the series, however, for me did not match the passion and the intensity of the previous books.
