Summary from Goodreads:

Rush promised her forever… but promises can be broken.

Torn between his love for his family and his love for Blaire, Rush has to find a way to save one without losing the other. In the end one has to be more important. Letting go isn’t easy.

Blaire believed in her fairytale… but no one can live in a fantasy.

Her love for Rush and desire to have a family keep her believing that they can find a way for this to work. Until she has to make the right decision for her and the baby. Even if it breaks her heart.

Can they find the forever that they both want or has it all just gone… too far?

My Thoughts:

After the second book let me down I still wanted to read the ending because I’m slightly addicted to the characters of this series. Plus with the books only being 200 pages apiece it is easy to get lost in them for a few quick hours.

I was glad this story started off with Blaire and Rush trying to make everything work with the baby and all they had to deal with. It seemed that they were trying to adjust their life little by little to figure out what would work for them. Plus the reader has to remember that they have only been a couple for a few months and so they have to still work out how to get along and live with each other. I really liked that Abbi wasn’t afraid to have Blaire be pregnant throughout the course of this book. It is not often that readers get to read an entire book where the MC is pregnant. Usually it is glossed over and the time is sped up so that the book only focuses on the pregnancy for a small time. I’m glad that Abbi wasn’t afraid to try something different with this book even if a lot of it was the same old same old New Adult genre plot line.

I have to say I love Blaire again in this book. She was able to move past a lot of stuff and become the person I met in the first novel and I was glad she got back her passion and attitude. I was also excited to see more of other characters and where their lives were going. It seemed everyone needed to get together in this book to realize where there stories were going. I really love how Rush and Blaire made their relationship work in this book. There were still little issues between them but all couples have little issues to work through and I’m glad that for once Blaire wasn’t ready to just up and leave at every second. Sure she did that one time in this book but it was a lot better than in the last book when she wanted to run from Rush at every chapter. I’m just happy for the growth in this book for the characters and their relationship. I also really love that Abbi also took the sexy up a notch in this book even though Blaire is pregnant. It just shows a new storyline that I haven’t really seen before.

Overall, the price for these little 200 page books is a little expensive but I do think the characters and the series is slightly addicting and I  can’t wait to read the rest of the spinoffs once I decide I want to fork over that much money on a short book.

    I couldn’t stand Blaire in book 2, she was such a hypocrite. I liked book one but I’m kind of over Abi’s current never ending series. I want her to start a brand new series with brand new characters. I might try this on audio.

    Aw, I’m glad you ended up liking Blaire again in this one! That definitely is different to have her entire pregnancy shown, and very interesting!

    I had wondered about the expense, too, though. I’ve only read the first book, but I remember it being short and a very quick read. But with Atria publishing them now, especially when it comes to the physical copies, they’re not going to sell them at the same price an individual would. I understand you wouldn’t want to significantly change them, since you want to give the readers essentially the same book, but it’s kind of lame to have to pay so much more because they got picked up by a publisher.

    Great review, though! 😀
