If at any time an author can bring out emotions in a reader, they are a success. If they can draw in a reader to feel engaged in the journey of their new book friends, they earn more respect. If an author can leave a reader feeling intrigued, inspired, and even offer healing, they’ve gained a bibliophile fanatic for life. - Shani K. - The Chronicles of an Abibliophobiac.

Book Review

Sometimes when I read a series it can lose me partially. Say for example book 1 had me hooked and I was so pumped to read the second and it was a letdown. Maybe book 3 was the same way, or whatever book it ends on. I’ve had that happen a number of times. But with Miss M’s conclusion of Red and Eddie, that so did NOT happen! Holy crumbles boogie man! This was by far the best one of the series and the most emotionally charged one. She amped up the drama on Team Reddie’s journey in this one.

They’ve overcome so much in the short time they’ve been together. They both have their own individual pasts come back up to the surface and threaten to overtake them. But they do what they do best, fight for themselves and each other. They can conquer anything, as long as they have each other, right?

As they try to work through the pain of the last uphill battle they have endured, the hits keep coming. Now Red realizes she doesn’t need the fighting anymore. She doesn’t need that adrenaline and release because she has Eddie. He gives her everything she’s needed and then some. Eddie realizes that he won’t be repeating history and wants a family. Who would have ever thought that it was possible?

But before they can truly move on, a few enemies decide to take their best shot at the power couple. One man wants her to walk away from the one true love she has and come running to him. He’ll do whatever it takes to make her do it too. Another man wants her to keep on fighting, whether she wants to or not. He sees her as the money maker that can make his retirement goals true. Both men think they can make her bend to what they want. Have they not met her? Do they not really see her for who she is? I’m more than sure they will see soon!

Eddie ends up facing one demon after another. The man he left behind all those years ago in an escape of sorts makes an appearance. Why show up now? Why be idle and not step up? Eddie’s past may have made him who he is today but he’ll be damned if he’ll go back to being the dummy who couldn't’ see past his own anger. He wants to let go of that person's memory and go to finding his sister. He’s felt so guilty about what they went through and he wants to make it better. He wants a family again. But those enemies have a way of sneaking up on you out of nowhere!

Throughout their extended journey, the fight gets harder, tougher and stronger. They can’t give up, because if they do there are those who will win in more than one way. Even with the tragedy that happens and the months of the aftermath, Red refuses to stop fighting. She will take on anyone and any circumstance to keep her family going and together. But what if she has to take on this fight on her own? Can she really fight the battle of two people on her own?

Creative adoration (positives): I freaking LOVED the emotional intensity in this one! It’s seriously the best out of the three books. I couldn’t put it down and I read the whole darn series in less than a day. There are moments where you just want to fight for the couple and throw down with all the buttheads! They’re both such raw and real characters that you can find yourself understanding them on a more personal level. Miss M so did not disappoint with this one! By the end of it, I was emotionally drained from the highs and lows. But I’d gladly take on the book-over (my version of a book hangover) all over again just because I’m all for Team Reddie!

Creative indifference (negatives): I did have a few moments where it was hard to read the most intense moments. I did like I usually do and just set it aside for a bit. That’s a personal thing and doesn’t take away from their story.

Creative appraisal (overall): I can’t say it enough! I LOVED this book so much! The series is epic, awesome and well written. Trust me, you’ll want to read the whole series in a weekend. It’s an emotionally charged series that will have you asking Miss M. to hurry up and write some more of the characters stories!
