Goodreads page:

In the final book of the trilogy, Sylvia and Jackson try to fight against the charges against him while trying to get his daughter home. Will the forces outside of their control keep them apart?

This story is a rollercoaster ride for Sylvia and Jackson as they just can’t seem to catch a break, but they use each other for strength to get through whatever life throws their way. It’s nice to see them embracing their love for one another instead or running away from it.


The twist at the ending of the story wasn’t really a surprise, at least to me, I figured out what happened almost immediately at the beginning of the book but I still enjoyed the story as Kenner reveals the truth slowly throughout the book.

The sex scenes were hot, but not as steamy as they were in the last two books. There was maybe one scene that made up for the lack of passion that I was expecting from these two characters. While some may consider this a ‘bad’ thing. I liked that Kenner spent more time developing the two characters and their relationship rather then just throwing a sex scene on every other page.


We finally get to see Jackson and Sylvia come full circle with the ghosts of their pasts. The best part is that they do it together. Jackson finally accepts that Damien is his brother and instead of running from it, he embraces it. For Sylvia she embraces her ghosts rather then letting them control her. It’s then that she is finally able to move on..

The story may be predictable at times, but it still was a satisfying conclusion to the trilogy. There were some things that I wish we saw more of (Jeremiah’s story) but it’s not enough to deter from the story.
