The image was seared into my mind. Imprinted. Emblazoned. Etched.
Did I blame him for what I saw? Or myself, for allowing him the ability to cause the pain coursing through me?
Betrayal was a weapon that cut to the core—the ‘what ifs’ the infection that festered in the wound.
I’d thought we’d had roadblocks thrown in front of us before. Damn. Those would have seemed like mere speed bumps if I’d seen what was coming…
Little did I know that what was headed our way would prove to be the biggest test of all—putting impossible choices in front of us. None of which seemed to lead to a happy ending in which the two of us were together.
****This is the FINAL volume in Max & Chloe’s story!***
Volume 4 picks up on the heels of Volume 3 as Chloe and Max deal with the fallout from the charity event. This final installment wraps up loose ends, builds to a dramatic climax, and ends with a satisfying conclusion. At 152 pages, it’s the longest book in the series and it has a lot of ground to cover, and does so while remaining true to the story and to the characters. I felt this book lacked some of the intense heat from the earlier books, but all relationships cool somewhat with time, so it’s probably okay. Plus it’s just less intense, not non-existent. I was thrilled to discover I was dead wrong about who was behind the weird things happening to Chloe, but I found the revelation a flat.
This volume is more plot-driven than the previous books in the series and a lot takes place. I won’t spoil anything, but we get answers to all of our questions, and new events are introduced that threaten to tear the happy couple apart again. This is by far the most emotional installment and I think everyone will be able to relate in some way to a pivotal event. I will say that I was surprised more than once. I knew something bad was coming, because author Elisabeth Grace foreshadowed it, but I wasn’t prepared for how it evolved, which kept me on my toes and reading until the very end.
The characters evolve more fully in the final book, growing, changing and becoming the people they need to be in order to be together. We finally learn Max’s secret and find out why he keeps everyone at arms’ length. It’s interesting to examine both Chloe and Max at the end of their story in light of how they originally met.
A satisfying conclusion to the series that wraps up loose ends and gives us our happily ever after.
I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

About the Author
I have a soft spot for romance novels with happily ever afters and a hot spot for alpha males! I currently live outside Toronto, Canada with my hubby and two small children. Life is busy, but never to busy for a good story and to share my love of reading and writing with others.
I’d been an avid reader my entire life, but when I discovered romance novels during my first pregnancy I was hooked! Not sure if it was the hormones or the lack of a life that was headed my way once my daughter was born, but since then I’ve been devouring several romance books a week. I love nothing more than reading about some serious alpha males and a happily ever after.
