That was how Lucy Thornton felt in the aftermath of her breakup with Harris Cutter. Her family thought the best thing for her to do was to put the length of the country between her and Harris.
Reluctantly, she went.
The second Harris sets eyes on Lucy again, he knows she hasn’t moved on any more than he has. Realizing that he screwed up, he sets out to prove that they belong together. But the road to un-shattering Lucy is longer and darker than he ever could have imagined.
I don’t know about you guys, but I always worry about the end of a series, I mean I am always thinking, is it going to end the way I want it to, or will I absolutely hate it. Honestly, when it comes to this book, it was a great ending for the series. I can honestly say I think this book made me feel more than any of the others. I mean this book is without a doubt so heartbreaking in so many places, but it wasn’t just said, there were a lot of moments of hope and love, and it all just kind of worked. I think because life in general is kind of messy, this book did a great job at feeling authentic.
So Lucy, oh sweet Lucy. I know she had kind of rough beginning in her life, and she really has come so far, with such a great family and support network, she’s just such a great girl, and all the while she has this one big secret. And of course after prior events in the previous books, when this book starts, dang, my heart just broke for her. I mean she is literally just going through the motions. And its so sad to see how she has completely pulled away from her family, her family that she was once sooooo close to, her isolation is just almost hard to read. And of course she’s heartbroken and miserable, and that’s even harder to read. You just want her to her happy ending, like that’s all I was thinking, especially in the beginning.
And as for Harris, man, in so many books, when the couple splits a part, its almost always the guy having done something horrible or pulled away because he was a commitment-phobe or something, something that makes you not be on his side. But man Harris is just so sad, and horrible, I mean what happened to him, shouldn’t happen to anyone. And you can totally understand his actions. So even though I was super sad for Lucy, I couldn’t do anything but feel bad for Harris. He really is just a good guy, who really deserves to be with the person he loves. What I liked about this book was the wake up call, when Harris finally starting fighting for Lucy, and more than that how supportive he was towards her when he kind of got the full picture. He wasn’t judgmental or rude, he was just supportive, and it made me love him even more.
Overall, this was a really good ending to this series, it was a pretty quick read for me, but I really did enjoy it. I felt like in this book the characters and I really connected. I easily recommend this series, and I look forward to seeing what comes next from Terri Anne Browning.
