✯✯4 Hard Stars!!✯✯
After Volume Two ended I was dying to find out what was next. Staci kept me guessing from book one. And, this final book was no different. Every page I was trying to figure out what was next.
W start this off exactly where it ended. Cory has stolen and returned Van's painting. Now, she's waiting to explain everything to him in hopes of Van accepting it. But, wasn't 100% sure he would. Needless to say Van kicks Cory out and doesn't want to ever see her.
The next day Cory and the girls sit down to talk. Every single one of them agree that Jade and her twin brother Jace need to be taken out once and for all. No matter what it takes.
Cory is crushed but wasn't too shocked or surprised about it. Now, she does the next thing to clear her conscience tell her sister Jill everything. That goes better then expected. All Cory has ever done her entire life was take care of Jill and protect her from their horrible parents. Jill agrees to move in with Cory and the girls.
Now, that Cory's sister is safe with her it's time for the final steps. She must do what she has to do if Jade is going to be out of their lives forever. Then, she must make herself happy. And, Van is what makes her happy. Cory will do whatever it takes to finally get Van to listen to the whole story.
I'm not saying anything else. Because, this was a novella and I'd hate to give anything away. But, I will tell you this book was just as hot & steamy as the first 2 were. Being that this was the last in the series all my answers were answered and with a HEA. This series was my first by Staci Hart and I am looking forward to her next book.
Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life -- a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can't forget that. She's also been a mom; she has three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She's been a wife; even though she's certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She's also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she's been drinking whiskey. Her favorite word starts with f and ends with k.
From roots in Houston, to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver. They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she's not writing, she's sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.
