At twenty-nine, Luke Black is a college drop out, a has-been musician, a widower, a dead-beat dad and an ex-con. On paper, the man doesn’t have a redeeming quality. But in his heart he’s still searching for one thing—“normal”.
All twenty-four-year-old Cocanda Rose has ever known is “normal”. And all she’s ever sought out is something that’ll make her mundane life just a bit more exciting. The rocker she fell for has broken her spirit and shattered her heart more times than she can count. Despite it all, she’s like a moth to a flame and has deemed herself irrevocably damaged. But there’s one person who has the potential to pick up the pieces. He’s her life-long neighbor, her best friend’s ex and the town pariah. He’s also the last person she ever thought she’d fall for and she soon becomes the only person who will stand by him.
In the final installment of the Lewiston Blues Series, F.X. Scully picks up the pieces of Luke Black’s life six years after it was torn apart. But not without some hiccups along the way.
F.X. Scully loves romance, but she doesn’t write your typical Happily Ever After. Because let’s face it, in the real world, it can sometimes take a lot of angst and pain before you get there. And some of us never do. But since most of us pick up books to escape the real world, her stories don’t lack hot boyfriends and sexy encounters. Neither will she leave you completely heart broken, sobbing into a tub of ice cream. Rest assured you’ll be on a roller coaster, but you’ll be glad you went along for the ride.
Luke and Coco have been friends and neighbors throughout their lives, there has always been an attraction between them but always something getting in the way. Throughout the story the two become close again and start to rely on each other to overcome the problems in their lives. Luke needs Coco to help with his mother and Coco needs Luke’s help to try and figure out if Dash is really the one for her. But has it been too much time and hurt for the two to act on their attraction for each other or can true love really win all?
I have come to fall in love with all the characters in this series. They each have their own quirks that make you feel what they are feeling. This whole series is the first series I have read in a long time where it’s not just about getting your happily ever after, but what is real! I can’t wait to see what comes next in the series and here is to hoping everyone gets their happy ending!
