Now faced with loving two men Addison must find it in her heart who her soul mate is without breaking the heart of the other.
Will Addison run away leaving everyone with shattered lives or make a decision that will mend hearts?
Ahh! I’d been waiting for this one to come out! When I read “The One Left Behind” (first book in the series), I didn’t realize it would be a series and was totally blindsided by the cliffhanger. You can’t do that to a girl! So as soon as I got the ARC of this, I dropped what I was reading to start it. It took me a little longer considering I was reading in the hospital as I was induced and waiting for our newest family member to arrive. But none the less, I needed to read it and find out! While I finished book 1 not really being Team anyone, within the first chapter, I had picked who I wanted to win. I rooted and cheered for him. While I wanted the other guy to also have a happy ending, I wanted my team to have his happy ending with Addison.
Throughout the story, we still see how Addison, at times, can be unaware of how her choices are impacting others, but she definitely grows up a bit. She does grow up a bit and she does start to lose that self-centered mentality. She opens her eyes to how others are feeling. And then there is more tragedy. And my heart broke for everyone. This was definitely a turning point in the story.
And the boys. Pierce & Collin. :sigh: . What can I say? While I have my preference, I think both guys are stand up, quality guys. Both guys deserve Addison or an equally amazing girl. They both deserve a Happily Ever After. They were faced with an impossible situation and handled it with such finesse. Ahhh… I loved them!
The story was fabulously written. There was romance, heartbreak, angst, tragedy, and a bit of mending to some shattered hearts. If you are looking for a great follow up and love triangle, you definitely want to read this one!
