Ms. Loren saved the best for last! I will be the first to say that I loved this story the best out of the entire series.

This series is not an easy one to dive into. The subject matter is very taxing. I’m not a fan of dealing with traumatic events in my romances and to keep that theme in a romantic series while being realistic is very hard. Kudos to Ms. Loren! I found myself sympathizing with each couple and their issues while rooting for them to get that HEA.

Kincaid is the last of the girls to find romance. She is the one who hides behinds a façade. She is the one who brought all the girls together so I was very anxious to read her story. Kincaid is best friends with Ashton Issacs but everything changes for them after that shooting.

Fast forward, Kincaid and Ash are both leading very different lives. Something occurs and the two have not spoken since the night of the shooting. Kincaid stayed in their small town. She put her whole focus on her career as a real estate agent. She dates occasionally but nothing compares to love she felt for her soul mate, Graham, who died that night. To hide her pain, she ensures that everyone around her is doing great.  

Ash doesn’t want to return home but after catching his fiancée cheating and his writing mojo dries up, he decides to go back home to regroup. The moment him and Kincaid see each other for the first time, they fight about the events of the past. The readers are left wondering what really went wrong. I don’t want to spoil what happened but I can see how both of them got hurt emotionally.

The chemistry between Ash and Kincaid is explosive. Ash is such a good guy. You know he is hiding something about what happened that night. You can see that he loved her from childhood and it is so frustrating knowing he never spoke up for himself. The stuff with his family to the childhood relationship with Kincaid, made me fall hard for Ash.  I love a book nerd so I wanted Kincaid to snap out of it earlier.

Kincaid focuses on herself so she never really see the big picture. When she finally came put all of the pieces together, it is so beautiful. She didn’t wait to share her feelings with Ash. The emotions came fast at the end and I wanted a bit more of their story as lovers but they spoke to my romantic side.

Overall, I’m glad this series has come to an end. The author handled the subject matter with compassion. I would highly recommend it.
