I absolutely loved this final installment of the series. What a GREAT conclusion to this riveting series. It was heartstopping, painstaking, emotionally jam packed, with lots of drama, gossip and lots of love. Life in the public eye is obviously difficult. And the reader definitely sees that.
This novel started on really slow. It took me a while to get into it, to be honest the first few chapters were boring and I think could have been limited/shortened. Given that, I loved the book overall. It was intense, but SC Stephens IS always like that. Once I got over the beginning hump, I could not put the book down. I was completely hooked, captivated by the words the author was feeding me. SC Stephens is so inspiring. Her writing catches me, its sincere, raw and full of emotion. She knows how to pull on the heart strings, and when, she knows where to draw that line, and how to move forward without giving away too much yet keeping the reader interested. I am in complete awe of her!
Kiera really matured in this novel. In this final chapter we really begin to see that Kiera and Kellan have finally figured their love and their relationship out. Now they face the public and the issues that come with that. Going through the ups and downs with Kiera and Kellan was so much fun. I found myself crying at times and laughing at times and smiling to myself. It was such a ride!!
Kiera has become a mature woman standing by her man, and trying to figure out her role in his life, his world, while Kellan is trying to figure out how to make his life and relationship work as one.
I really enjoyed this one. It was different from the others. Its not angsty like the others, there is less of the clingy emotional BS that a young adult and young relationship has. They have grown and now deal with the celebrity status that Kellans lifestyle brings on. Generally speaking, I enjoyed this part because it was so different from anything Ive read and it was completely understandable why Kellan made his decisions. I think Kiera was far stronger than I ever would have been. It was really interesting to go along for the ride, and watch as someone would become famous.
I was enthralled in this novel, I didnt want it to end. But when the concluding chapters finally appeared...sadly...I was happy with the end result. It was such a perfect ending. It gave closure to everything in a great way. I was disappointed that it ended, but happy because it ended in a way that made me feel like the entire journey was worthwhile.
I completely fell in love with Kiera and Kellan all over again throughout this novel. Watching them continue their love struggle and to stand by one another no matter what. Kellan is such an amazing man I so wish someone like that existed for me! haha.
I loved being remined though that love like this can exist, its a story that provides hope for those of us who are hopeless romantics. Kiera and Kellans love is so strong it can be terrifying for those of us looking for it, the fear of never finding that feeling, but I think this story provides a love story for all different types of people which is something that I also truly appreciate. Additionally I liked that these books included sex scenes that were tastefully done. I didnt feel like I was reading porn but instead a love scene filled with passion and love.
This book also captures the past present and future of a number of different people and places, intertwining the lives of different people who live around the country. It proves that family isnt just blood and people surprise you when you least expect it. I liked getting to know everyone and watching the band make it big, it was a lot of fun. I was worried that there wouldnt be anything to write about for a full book, but SC Stephens made it tasteful and appripriate just like the others!
The book was so romantic and well written this book with remain with me for quite some time!
I cant wait to read SC Stephens next book, she never ceases to amaze me, and I love forward to her next books!
