“Relationships aren’t easy. They’re hard and can be brutal at times…but those are the times you learn the most about yourself. And when they’re right,” I pause, making sure his eyes are steadfast on mine, “they can be like coming home…finding the rest of your soul…”

Holy Cow! This was the most intense, crazy emotional, and angst ridden book of the series. I felt like I spent 90% of the book crying, bawling or just tearing up. But it was also the book I most enjoyed from the whole series. As soon as I began reading the Prologue, the tears just came pouring out. I connected so deeply with these characters in this book. I felt. Every. Single. Emotion. They were feeling themselves.

‘Fuck if she’s not everything I need and nothing that I deserve.’

This book picks up immediately where the last book left off. Which had ended in quite the cliffhanger. I am just SO glad I didn't have to wait to read what happened next or I would have pulled my hair out. So, like I mentioned before that Prologue had me bawling, it was just so freaking scary, heart breaking and amazing all at once. I really loved it despite it being so sad. Then the first chapter came next, and I felt that desperation Rylee was feeling. I was one of those books where I really just FELT everything. I am really impressed with K. Bromberg and how much her writing has improved. I really enjoyed the way in which she wrote this book and was able to captivate me into the story a lot more than she had on the previous two books.

I really don't want to give much away about what happens in this story. I think you would get a better reading experience not knowing what's going to happen.

I squeeze her a little tighter, not wanting to let her go just yet because, fuck, what racer doesn't want to holdon to their checkered flag a little longer?
At least I know mine waves only for me.
My kryptonite.
My alphabet, motherfucking A to Z.
My fucking Rylee.

Rylee went through a tough first half of the book, but that doesn't the second half wasn't tough on her either. Something huge happens to her in the second part. I am so happy it didn't cause her to close up. What I really love about Rylee is that she isn't the usual doormat heroine. She is so strong, and fights for what she wants. She pushed Colton's boundaries while staying by his side when he pushed her away. I love how unconditional her love for him was. Any moment they shared together where they were finally moving forward from Colton's demons, made me extremely happy. They had a connection you can really feel and I LOVED that. It was just so sweet and heart warming seeing them interact that way, with their walls obliterated.

“I accept you, I tell him. All of you. The broken parts. The bent parts. The ones filled with shame. The cracks where hope seeps through. The little boy cowering in fear and the grown man still suffocating in his shadow. The demons that haunt. Your will to survive. And your spirit that fights. Every single part of you is what I love. What I accept. What I want to help heal.”

My handsome, arrogant rougue.
A little cocky.
A lot imperfect.
And completely mine.

Colton goes through a really tough time in this book. It was time for him to finally face all of the demons that had haunted him for most of his life. He was stubborn, hurtful, and frustrating. But this was the only way he knew how to cope with how he was feeling. It was really hard for him, but I am proud of him for accomplishing what he did by the end of the book. I LOVED seeing him open up to Rylee in a way he never had before. He was just so awesome and romantic...who knew? And he said he didn't have it in him. Lies!! Because I seriously loved him so much. He may have broken my heart a few times, but he also made me sigh, pant, and swoon like crazy.

“You were the one thing I never wanted—never, ever expected in my life—an fuck if I can live without you now. You test me and tempt me and make me look at the truth I don’t want to face and are stubborn as hell, but God, baby, I wouldn’t want you any other way. Wouldn’t want us any other way.”

Overall, this book was a tear jerking riot of emotions. It was a long journey for both of them to finally heal. I am quite exhausted now that I have finished it, but I am also so freaking happy for them. There was quite a bit of sex in this book, but for the most part it wasn't those filler types of scenes, they meant something to them. It was a way to show the connection between them. Yes, this book contained a lot of sadness, but there was plenty of happy, playful banter times as well. There was also some sweet and cheesy moments--that I would usually not enjoy--but because of all the tears it worked well here. So, it ended up not bothering me, but instead I ended up liking it. I loved every character and the role they played in the story. What really made me happy was the TWO epilogues. One was in Rylee's perspective, and the other in Colton's--but both were not of the same scene. It was beautiful and perfect and warmed my heart. I cried too, but thankfully they were HAPPY tears this time...ha! I loved this last book and I am hoping Becks and Haddie get their own book.
