I’ve read the first five books of the series last year and this is definitely my favorite in it! The solid story line with ample backstories for both MCs and that wonderful epilogue – it simply is perfection!
In this story, we meet Logan – ‘manHoor’ Logan. We met him back in the Echoes of Scotland’s Street. He was Shannon’s brother who put the guy who tried to rape her into a coma and subsequently served two years in prison for it. Poor, poor Logan. He’s trying his very best to bring his old self back [and tried to make up for the lost two years in the sex department. Uhm…okay.]
And then there’s Grace who escaped from her manipulative family by moving to a new city. Their path collided when they found themselves living next to each other. Will they ever have a chance at love when their past keeps getting in the way?
I love Grace! She’s super-fantastic and does not have all the super-filled angst characterization of the previous female characters in the first five books despite having a nasty family on the side (eerr like Logan – but at least the McLeod’s are “trying.”)
I thought Logan’s comment about fucking around with all those girls he brought home (who are exclusively blondes) was a bit misogynistic but yeah – boys will be boys – or NOT.
I also loved “Joss’s squad” / tribe (I started referring to them as Joss’s squad since she’s got the first story) and their meddling, as usual! This time, it’s not nearly as annoying as in the previous books!
And then there’s Maia! I loved her! What an absolute darling! This story is indeed a perfect way to end the series! Everything came full circle for all of the characters and it felt like their journey was my journey as well!
With this being the last in the series, I’d like to give few awards for the series as a whole.
