Mine. The title really does say it all. All the feelings that these two characters have for each other. You get the beautiful continuation of Brooke and Remy’s love story that’s never an easy road. It starts a little while after the first book, Real, ended, when Brooke comes back to Remy.

Remy is training for his rematch with the man who hurt the people he cares about. I love Remy exactly the way he his: dedicated, loving, so very alpha (complete with growling), sexy and flawed. I love Brooke for her capacity of love and her own imperfections.

“We’re the object of each other’s hurt and each other’s solace.”- Brooke

Finding a way to forgive each other and themselves for not being what they felt the other needed them to be was a big issue here. You know they love one another, that’s evident throughout the whole story.

“You are going to love me until I die. I’m going to make you love me even if it hurts, and when it hurts, I’m going to make it better, Brooke.”- Remy

“I want to live in you.”-Remy

Remy is such a passionate creature. He feels everything as if it’s magnified and given his condition, maybe it is.

“I’ve been through hell, and I’m back in heaven and suddenly I know that’s the way my life will be. After the dark, I will always, always find my light- which is him.”- Brooke

When I reviewed the first book in the series, I said it wasn’t a conventional romance. I think that when a person is in love with someone who is bipolar there’s no way their love can be conventional. The man in this book copes with his illness as best he can and the woman in this story, his woman, loves him because of his illness not just in spite of it. Katy Evans, what a wonderful love story you gave us!

This was not at all what I expected from Shelley Munro.

A rugby player finds out he has a son he didn’t know about and sets out to confront the boy’s mother. When he meets her, he finds out that the mom isn’t his biological mother but his aunt. His son’ s mother died years earlier and his aunt adopted him. Lane, the hero and Kate, the heroine try to figure out sure paternity and who leaked the story to the tabloids. They are also try to figure out the dynamic of this new family and who is stalking Kate and why.

I really did not care for this book. I found it tedious and boring. Do not even get me started on the love scenes. They were pretty much sleep inducing. It wouldn’t recommend this to someone who likes graphic love scenes but maybe to those who like a simple romance.

This is the conclusion to the Plus-One Chronicles.

At the end of the last book, Sloane had just confessed his secret to Kat, knowing he would likely lose her. But she had made him promise earlier to never lie to her, so he kept this promise. Kat being Kat, chose to love him anyway but hoped he’d change his mind on the revenge he had planned for Lee Foster.

We got to find out if David was involved and if so, how. That closure went well, I thought. Kellen and Diego moved into their own house but were still around for Kat. Kat made a decision regarding the futures of her and Sugar Dancer. Kat and Sloane’s relationship with Drake was beautiful and by the end of the book I was sobbing.

I really liked this series. Good characters and plot. Plus hot sex, what more could you want? Everything tied up nicely. Slaone realized he wasn’t his mother’s son, he got his closure for Sara, accepted Drake as the father of his heart and that Kat was his only one not a plus-one. I will definately read more by Jennifer Lyon.
