Plot: Four years after having her heart broken, (when the man she loved married her sister) Lake is stunned when she comes face-to-face with Manning. He’s come to check on her and when he learns that her situation is less than perfect, he realises he made a colossal mistake and intends to rectify it.
Lake may be penniless and struggling without her family’s support, but she’s free and pursuing the career she always wanted. Seeing Manning again after so long threatens to undo all the progress she’s made – but she’s determined to stay strong.
Their feelings for each other, rather than diminishing over the years, have intensified and soon their passion boils over, possibly destroying everything in its path.
Why you should read it: This trilogy has been one hell of a ride. The ups the downs, the angst and the passion – it’s pretty epic. I liked book 1 a lot for its masterful storytelling. Book 2 made me want to throw my kindle and slap Manning and Lake at times. In book 3, I was firmly in Lake and Manning’s corner – infidelity be damned! The story was tight, deliciously passionate (seriously so, so hot!) and still there were surprises along the way. I also liked that not everything was wrapped up in a neat little bow at the end. Jessica Hawkins always manages to weave her stories with a strong sense of realism and consequences for the characters’ actions.
What you may not like: There is cheating – not going to lie and I know how some of you hate that, but it’s fictional so come on!
Rating: 5/5 for a satisfying conclusion to an epic love story. I could not put it down and really didn’t think I could warm up to Lake and Manning as much as I did.
