My Mini Review
(I'm time constricted right now so I apologize that I can't write a longer review at this time.)
I have really become addicted to this beautifully written love story of Liv and Dean. I mean it's not always so good as there is a lot of stake that can prevent their happiness for a long time, but with that aside, these two lovers just concentrate on themselves, about their relationship, and about themselves individually. I do like that we read both of Liv and Dean's POVs. It helps a great deal to know what they are both thinking and why they do this and that. There are many love scenes, some flashbacks and these are really important, because for me Liv's character develops even more, with the help of an old friend. I feel like we do finally know everything about this couple and with their ups and downs, I can leave this trilogy with pure satisfaction. I have to say though that for the rest of the day, when I finished this I had a withdrawal as I read this trilogy from beginning to end within days, so I got attached to these characters, to this love story and just to the story itself, of finding yourself, and even though I wanted more after I finished the last sentence, I think how it ends is....well very appropriate. I look forward to reading more of this Author's work as I just love her writing :)
My Rating: 4.5/5
Rated R! (Oh yes. Strong Sexual Content & Some Adult Language)
