In what looks to be the final book of the Ray series, we have Ryker and Austin trying to decide if they can move past their exes and be with each other wholly and completely.
There are times when the story goes around in circles and is just spinning on its wheels and is just spinning on its wheels to get to the end point (which is the HEA). Like when Zeke was trying to win Rae back two books back, there are things that are repeated and it gets annoying. Like the sole purpose that Austin won’t give Ryker a chance is because of Rae but it’s not really based on anything. She completely ignores people’s pleas to make her sees his actions and for me I’m just like ‘omg are you that thick?’
Of course the best part of the story is the steamy romance part. The scenes between Ryker and Austin are even hotter in this book then they were in the last book because it has that pent-up passion that gets released. For example that scene when they have ‘sex’ without actually doing it, is probably one of the hottest scenes in the whole series.
The series is a fun and quick read. The banter between the friends is my favorite part in the whole series. For me, I tend to always like the secondary characters in books and that is no different in this series. Rex and Kayden were my favorite couple in the story because they were so adorable and funny that I enjoyed reading their back and forth.

She’s written several novels and many series’, and her imagination can’t seem to stop. She tries to find the good in people and she exploits that in her writing, proving that people can make mistakes and rise above their past.
