THANK GOODNESS THIS MESS IS OVER!!!!
After reading this book I found so many things that were started and left you hanging. Which I found ridiculous since it was the last book. Then when Eva's mothers is killed I wasn't shocked I laughed because it didn't flow with the book. This book was so out of joint, at times I had to stop and reread it to see if it made sense. Now I can see it Gideon had been shot and lived that would have flowed. But the mother no. To much wine while see was writing. I will say that this is the last book by Day I will purchase.
I just finished reading the whole series, I can honestly say job well done. The story started with Eva’s mom been over protective and Eva been suffocated by her at end we find out why cause her to be that way. In this story I found that we have two protagonists. Eva and Laurence . Everything Laurence (Monica)did and sacrifice was for love. Love to her twin sister and what was done to her sister and Eva her daughter . She sacrifice her own love life to make sure that Eva and her sister were well taking care off. In the process we experienced how Laurence made mistakes costing her only daughter an abused childhood. Trying to rectify her mistake and living once more the agony again of her twin sister but now been her daughter,she is presented her self as a suffocated person and even a gold digger. Eva in the other hand finally find her soulmate and true love, which it is also scar from his childhood. The story progressed showing how both of them help each other by fighting their demons in order to be able to stay together and overcome their pass. Eva’s mom was a key character throughout the whole story, since at the end we find out why she turn to be the way she is and put out the act that she have to in Order to survive. Love the story , love the end is different, although some sadness tours the end but also Happiness for Eva. For those of you that wanted her to be pregnant or having a child. If you paid attention your the end I think she was it implied in more that one occasion . The dreams, the way the food make her feel. And even if she wasn’t keep in mind that no every story have to be finished with a child in the way. I think the last book was beautiful. Eva learning about her mom , accepting her and having adored her for the strongest woman that she find out she was. In side out . Her selflessness to others. An amazing ending.
It's not bad
I like the book, but I wish it went on and brought having a kid into the mix. The death of her mother felt out of place and totally unfinished. The backstory was barely grazed over in the end. More could have been brought into the story there. It left the door wide open for there to be another chapter or 2 about what went on there.
The biggest complaint I have about the audiobook is the male reader. He kind of creeped me out the way he read it. It was almost like a serial killer at times. I would have enjoyed Gideon's point of view more if the male reader would have read it better.
