Will they yield to circumstances beyond their control or will they give every ounce of fight they have left to save each other and win the ultimate prize of a life together?
This is the third book of the Blackstone Affair series. I have followed this series from the start, but I have to admit that I am becoming fairly concerned with the direction of this series. What started as a tragic story wrapped up in an unstoppable romance; has become quite a taxing read. As a fan of Ethan and Brynne is breaks my heart to find myself coming against an obstacle in this journey. While Brynne has a much deserved reason for emotion in this story I am struggling with her on again off again mentality. Just when it appears that they are both on the same page she begins experience another emotional breakdown. This was the duration of this novel, and I find myself at overwhelmed with this up and down roller coaster that seems to appear in everyone of these novels. I hope that I do not give the wrong impression, because the story line is successful in this novel as well. I am not trying to hate on the story in it's entirety. Although, I might see myself coming to a close with this series; if typical repetition continues. ~BookWhisperer Reviewer JO~
