That cliffhanger! I am so ready to read the conclusion to this angsty, new adult trilogy because this couple has me hooked. Piper Lawson’s writing is excellent (as always), so she’s got me rooting for Annie and Tyler despite the complicated nature of their relationship. It’s angsty and engrossing, with tension and plenty of drama. There were a couple of minor things that hold me back from calling this 5 stars, but it’s a truly compelling story and I cannot wait to see how it all turns out.
As the middle book in a trilogy, this begins and ends on a CLIFFHANGER, so make sure you’re caught up before you dive into this one. It picks up as Tyler is starting his second year at a music-based college, and the tension ratchets up as Annie starts as a freshman. They’ve both changed since the events of the first book, and neither one realizes just how deeply their separation affected the other. It’s not long until all those old feelings rise to the surface, and they have to decide where they go from here.
Lawson does a great job playing with your emotions; it’s got a whole lot of drama and characters you just want to see find their happy ever after. I’ll be honest and say that I REALLY prefer duets over trilogies because the angst always gets to me in the middle book, and that’s definitely the case here. There’s maybe just a little too much push/pull, and I didn’t love that they both moved on so quickly during their separation. For that reason, I can’t call this 5 stars, but I am still completely hooked on the story. And as for the cliffhanger in this one… well, I have no idea where this story is going next and I LOVE that. It was unexpected and I’m curious to see how the final book plays out. I received an ARC via Wildfire Marketing Solutions and am voluntarily leaving a review of this angsty new adult romance.
