This was a great conclusion to the Guarded Hearts series. I absolutely love all of the characters and it was nice to finally see some resolution for them. The story line was interesting and had me glued to my tablet. I easily read it all in one sitting because I couldn’t put it down.

This book mostly revolves around Shawn and Christen but you do get a little bit from Jason, Nicole, Carter, Madison, and Holly. Shawn and Christen quickly fall for each other. Their personalities complement the other’s very well. Shawn is finally able to come clean with his friends and of course gets their support but he also acquires more obstacles to overcome after he starts dating Christen. The love and support within the whole group is inspiring and I found myself easily rooting for them.

Thankfully we finally get some resolution with this final installment and I was happy to see most of the group find someone. I do wish that there was a fourth book so Holly could find someone. However it was a great book and awesome series. The story flowed really well and I was easily able immerse myself in their world. I look forward to more from this author and give this one a 5 out of 5 book!

I practically jump out of the car and run to the door when we pull up to the house. Just as I’m about to turn the knob, I feel a set of hands grab my hips and I let out a shriek. I turn my head to the side and Shawn’s face is only an inch from mine. My heartbeat immediately speeds up—having him this close to me with his hands where they are is torture.

“What if we give this a try and it doesn’t work?” he whispers in my ear, his hot breath giving me goose bumps all over.

“What if we give it a try and it does?” His fingers dig into my hipbones in response. I turn to face him, wrapping my arms around his neck.

He walks me backward, presses me against the door, and kisses me. His lips are so soft and his tongue immediately finds its way into my mouth. He completely dominates me the same way he had earlier. When he pulls away, I can barely catch my breath.

“Okay, let’s give it a try.”

When I look into his eyes, he gives me a smile and then walks back to his truck. I stand there like an idiot until he pulls away and turns the corner.
