MY REVIEW

A hauntingly unforgettable story of vengeance. It will consume you. Two people struggling with loss and pain that find one another. Their connection cannot be severed. Their bond will teach them how to love and be loved. At some point you have to choose between love or revenge. Which would you choose?

I went into this story reading nothing but the blurb. I like going in blind and living the story page by page. I thoroughly enjoyed watching the story unfold.

Vaughn is complicated. He's a dark and broody artist. He's emotionally withdrawn and introverted. He's cruel and manipulative. He's also an amazing talent, incredibly gorgeous and unforgettable. He seeps into your soul and takes hold.

Lenora is a good girl. She follows the rules, gets good grades, works hard and stays out of trouble. But she hides her darkness. After losing someone close to her, she wanted to change who she was. So she embraced her dark side.

They met as young teens but never forgot each other. Their first meeting left a lasting impression. Now it's senior year of high school and they are both in Todos Santos. Vaughn doesn't do feelings of any kind. So tormenting her any way he can becomes his only focus. Lenora doesn't let the haters phase her. She has grown a backbone and no longer backs down. He tries to make her life hell. She fights back every step of the way.

The rules do not apply to Vaughn. With a daddy that could buy and sell the town, he can do whatever he wants. Lenora survives him but could not wait to head back to her home country and chase her dream. An artist herself, she has been fighting for an internship at her father's exclusive art school for a long as she can remember. Her biggest competition is Vaughn.

The two end up together once again. Sparks always fly when they are together. She doesn't believe in love. He doesn't know how to feel anything. This is a story of self-discovery. Together they will fight through their past.

I had no idea what to expect and this final book of the series was dark and delicious. Vaughn will make you angry, get you HOT and bring you to tears. Your heart will ache for him. This story is heavy and complex. You'll read of pain and loss. Ultimate betrayal and acts of defiance. And the ANGST will overwhelm you at times. You'll embrace the thirst for revenge. And the Spencer's will once again remind us why we love them all. It's always hard to see a series end and letting this one go is the hardest. The series came full circle and I thoroughly enjoyed the journey.
