  ✯5 Beautiful Stars!!! 

OMG!!! No joke when I tell you that I finished this book a few days ago and I still can't believe it! I been trying to figure out what to write and how to write it. Without giving anything away. This is one of my favorite series. This series wasn't just about Kate and her 2 loves Mike and Daniel. This was about them and their friends. But, their friends were their family. Their gang of friends were just as important to the story as Kate, Daniel & Mike were. 

We start off exactly where we left off. Vanessa has had baby Lucas and we know who his daddy is. Kate is dealing with her actions from the night before. Some people are having more of an issue with it then others. Kate has also made her decision. Is it Mike? Is it Daniel? That I'm not telling you hahahaha.

Now, Lucas parents are trying to get into a routine for Lucas and themselves. Kate. Poor Kate. Her, Jessica & Connor are getting ready to graduate so she's studying and trying to keep up. She has fallen head over heals in love with Lucas.Kate is probably one of the nicest, caring and loving character I have read in awhile. Even though the 2 loves of her life were not too happy when Vanessa came into their lives. Kate being Kate opened up her house next door.Kate has stayed by Vanessa's side the whole time. Which made everyone else do the same. Vanessa ends up becoming friends with them too. 

Now, I could go on and on and on for awhile. But, this is not a story that you'd want  a spoiler to. This is the last book in the series. You must must must read the books in order!! That is not an option. I say that because you will not understand what is going on.

D.Kelly gives you such a powerful story. Every emotion I have went into this story. There was sadness, happiness, laughter, confusion  and shock. But, mostly there was a whole lot of love. And, not just between Kate and Mike or Kate and Daniel. But, with everybody. Kate and Jessica. Daniel and Mike. Everybody had some type of relationship/friendship. They were all funny, strong and beautiful in there own way. Like every book in this series Connor did not disappoint me. He had me laughing all the time. I will say the most shocking person for me was Vanessa. I went from not liking her at all when she first showed up. But, the end of this book. Vanessa became one of my favorites! She also had me cry the most in this book. No joke. I'm dead serious hahahaha... Dee ended it perfectly. It did end with a HEA for everyone involved.

I am so honored when Dee asked me to read her book. I am even happier I said yes! Hahaha.. This is her first series and what a way to start. When I tell you nobody could of given you Kate, Daniel, Mike, Jessica, Connor and everyone else in the series. I mean nobody!! Dee has a fan for life in me. All she has to say is I'm writing a new book and it's going on my list.
It’s crowded, but since it’s a weeknight, it’s not nearly as packed as usual. Since I’m about to lose my bull riding virginity I’m thankful for the slightly smaller crowd. As promised, Mike goes first but the ride operator isn’t as gentle on the men and he flies off pretty quickly. I think he might have wacked his balls against the hand hold on his way down. He winces a bit as he gets up. “You okay?” I ask him, giggling, but I’m truly worried about his man parts. He pulls me in close, his breath caressing my ear. I’m holding my breath as he whispers, “I think my baby makers are broken.” I laugh as he places a kiss on my cheek. “Good luck, baby, now go ride that bull like you’d ride me.” He says it loud enough for everyone to hear and if I thought I was going to go deaf from the music before that was nothing compared to the whooping and hollering of the crowd. Of course the ride operator uses it to his advantage “What’s your girl’s name?” he yells across to Mike. There’s a devious gleam in Mike’s eyes as he replies “Jessica, but all her good friends call her Jess.” He nods that he’s got it and after I’m straddled onto the bull, he holds nothing back. “Alright, everyone, let’s hear it for our new friend Jess! Now, we all heard her boyfriend tell her to ride our bull like she rides him at home, so I think we’re in for a show.” My cheeks were already flushed from the alcohol, my palms sweaty from nerves, but the embarrassment zinging through me makes my entire body burn. I catch Mike out of the corner of my eyes, laughing and shrugging his shoulders in a semi apology. At least he had the decency to not give my real name. The bull starts off nice and slow, periodically gyrating a few times in a forward motion, but I’m able to hold on with just one hand. I don’t really know how long this goes on, maybe a minute or so, when I hear the announcer tell Mike over the PA system that he’s a lucky man. At this point, he’s done being nice and the bull starts bucking around like crazy. I’m able to hold it together for about another thirty seconds or so before I go flying off. Someone helps me to my feet and I stumble over to Mike as the crowd starts chanting ‘kiss, kiss, kiss, kiss’. Hell, at this point what does it matter? Mike’s eyes seek permission from mine as I wrap my arms around his neck and pull him close. He kisses me and the crowd goes wild. It’s just like the kiss we shared in my bed a few days ago—a little more than just friends, but not exactly like lovers. Whatever it is, I allow myself to feel it and the crowd cheers their approval.

I'm a wife, a mom and a dog lover. I'm also a taxi, problem fixer, extreme multi-tasker and my kids biggest fan in anything that they do. I love to write, so when my career suddenly derailed I turned back to my love of writing. I married my high school sweetheart... how cool is that? Margaritas and sarcasm make me happy. Chocolate makes that happiness grow exponentially. People who make me laugh are my favorite kind of people. I believe Karma is a bitch who slaps back hard and that mean people suck. I'm California born and raised, I love the beach but hate the sand. The Acceptance Series is my first series with more books to come soon.
