Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
I love him…but he’s forgotten why.
A lot can happen in six years, and Ash and Pete have seen their world flipped upside down more times than most. Being parents to Pete’s young nephew wasn’t in their plan, but life happens to them and they roll with the punches. Or at least they did, until new heartache rocks their hard-won happily-ever-after.
Ash loves Pete as much as ever—more, in fact—but Pete battles alone with a burden that weighs heavily on his heart. Ash is no stranger to dark clouds, but the secret Pete keeps from him is a storm that could break them.
Despite the fierce love that once buoyed them, they’re both drowning until a new friend throws them a lifeline. His wisdom offers insight—for better or worse, real love is rarely a smooth journey. For Ash and Pete to come full circle once more, they’ll have to hit the road and chase it.
I was both excited and nervous when I saw that this book was coming. The first book in the series, Slide, was one of the first books I read in this genre and it holds a special place in my heart. I was happy with how things ended after book two and I wasn’t sure I wanted to revisit these two if their happily ever after was going to be changed. As it turns out I had nothing to worry about. This book was fantastic. I loved every page of it.
When the book starts Pete and Ash are having some troubles. Pete is really struggling with something and as a result he’s pulling away from Ash emotionally. The thing that made this ok to read was that despite their struggles, you never doubt how much they love each other. It jumps off every page at you. You see that they’re going through something bad but you know that it’s going to work out in the end.
I’m hesitant to say much about the plot because there are a lot of plot points that can be spoiled. In fact, I recommend, rather ironically, that you avoid most reviews on this book. There are just too many things that can be spoiled and I think it’s best to just go in to it with no information.
This is the third book in this series and can not be read as a standalone. If you want to try this series you need to start with book one. If you are already a fan of this series you can read this without doing a re-read of the previous books. It takes place a few years down the road and the author does a good job of catching you up on what’s been happening. I did it without doing a re-read. Honestly though, I wish I had done a re-read but just because once I got in to this I realized how much I’ve missed these two.
This book was one of my most anticipated books of the year and it did not let me down. I loved it from the first page to the epilogue that I cried happy tears through. A must read for fans of this series.
Cover by Garrett Leigh: I love this cover. It’s a gorgeous cover and it fits well with the previous books in the series
