“…what a great way to end the series!” ~Under the Covers
3, 2, 1, Zero….End of!
This is it…the end of the series and Wow…what a ride!
The story starts off only two weeks after Beneath This Man and if you’ve read that, you know what is happening. It is wonderful and…sooo beautiful. And then we get some Jesse confessions but we all knew it was coming. Even though Ava had a good idea, she still comes unglued and rightfully so.
They separate ~again~ and that leads to more drama ~again~ but now we have someone who is after Ava. Naturally, Jesse flips out and unbelievable things take an even worse turn. *It’s scenes like this that make me keep reading this series.* Because just when things seem bleak, something wonderful comes out of it.
There’s even more confessions and we finally get to know *supposedly* all of Jesse’s secrets and boy, are there some doozies! I would love to spill them all but I won’t do that to you. 😉
This series is not for everyone though. It is over the top and ridiculous and never in a million years would I ever stand for someone like Jesse in real life but it does make for an interesting story.
The crazy thing ~for me~ wasn’t even the over the top stuff…it was all the secrets. Mainly from Jesse but Ava kept things from Jesse as well. It’s funny because in the beginning, it seems as if she’s the normal one but the more we find out, the more we realize how similar they are. And just when you think all the secrets are out…there’s more!
Of course, there is ton of hot sex…I mean, we are talking about Jesse and he is very creative. The good thing is that even though they still name their types of sex (Love Sleepy Twilight Sex), the desperation is gone and they are truly making love. Don’t worry…there’s still plenty of passion and some rough and hard stuff!
And we do get a lot of answers. We find out about Sarah and Coral and Ruth and if Kate stays with Sam or if she goes with Dan? And who is Sally dating and finally, what in the heck is going on with Mikael!
I was shocked at some of the answers and not surprised at others. I love what Jesse did with The Manor and The Ava Wall. But…my favorite, favorite thing was the epilogue…that was quite lovely and what a great way to end the series!
♥ “It was made to love you, Ava. For too long it was useless, redundant, not required. Now it’s gone into overdrive. It swells with happiness when I look at you. It splinters with pain when we fight. And it beats wildly when I make love to you. Maybe I go overboard with my love, but that’s never going to change. I’ll love you this fiercely until the day I die, baby.”
♥ “Central Jesse Cloud Nine.”
♥ “Constant contact. Wherever, whenever.”
♥ “I love our normal.”
♥ “I don’t demand to see her eyes anymore. I don’t need to check she’s real. As long as my heart keeps beating, I’ll know that she is.”
