In a final installment of the series, a new couple finds love and the casts of the previous books join in to celebrate in the most beautiful way possible. By the New York Times best-selling author of Beautiful Bastard.

What a beautiful conclusion to the series!

Although this book centered around Jensen Bergstrom and Pippa Bay Cox, there was also a HEA epilogue for all the characters in the series.

Talking about Jensen and Pippa’s love story, well, these two are an odd couple. Jensen is a workaholic guy and is all so serious about his career and this is because of his failed marriage. Pippa, on the other hand, is a sassy, hilarious, and fun character who easily moved on after her boyfriend cheated on her. Their paths have crossed when they were on their way to Boston and their seats on the plane were just next to each other. Little did they know that they are bound to meet again in Boston for a local tour together with their common friends.

I didn’t expect to adore this book as I found Jensen’s character in the previous books and novellas to be quite boring, but wow! I was so surprised to find him interesting here. Yes he was totally reserved when it comes to opening his heart to relationships, but he has a soft heart for Pippa. I found Pippa’s character to be amazing as well. She was just so chill about life and moving on that even if she had potentials to become broken hearted, she just remained calm.

This book was also hot. There were sexy times thrown in places but unlike the previous books, they were just light which was okay with me.
