Official Blurb:

Losing her nearly destroyed me.
Reclaiming her is something I've waited years for.
I can see it in her eyes, feel it in her touch.
  The desire, the temptation, she needs me just as much as I need her.
But there's something else there, defiance.
She’s never forgotten me, after all this time, but has she forgiven me?
Turns out she's forgetting one thing... she’s mine.
I'm not letting go this time.


My Thoughts:

Finally, the last instalment of Ben and Lauren’s story! Is this the happy ever after that we’ve been waiting for for months?
We last saw everyone when Lauren was reiterating to Ben that she was happy with Joe and sending him away with a flea in his ear. This book picks up right where we left off. Ben’s initial reaction is to flee again, but then he remembers he’s not Ben anymore he’s BJ! I’ve been waiting to see BJ again, as it’s been difficult envisaging the two characters as one. We got to know BJ quite a bit during the Falling series, but Ben is such a sweetheart that is hard to wrap your head around them being the same person.
We do get to go back to Devon, which really reiterates the fact that he is one and the same. It was great to go back there as it felt like you were visiting a long lost past. Somewhere where you’d grown up, but then you go back ten years later, and everything feels strange! A lot happens in this final instalment; there is a lot of drama, a lot of revelations.
However, there is also a lot of ‘dirty’ moments and a lot of making up. When Ben’s life is threatened, Lauren is forced to face her emotions, and after a short trip, she is almost ready to let him back in her heart.
The author has confirmed there are four more books to follow the characters we have met, so I’m hoping to get Joe’s story, but I’m also guessing they are going to follow Erica, Trey and Danni. They are my predictions, so we shall see!
This has certainly been an emotional journey for Ben and Lauren, and it feels like ages ago since I read their beginning, but I’m glad it was written over three books as this really added to the suspense and built up the emotions even more. It feels like I have known the characters for a long time, and I’m going to miss them. I loved the ending; it wasn’t over complicated and was simple enough. We didn’t need an in your face ending; this was just perfect!
