I love, LOVE this series, these characters, and their settings. I hope this isn't the end.
The story is back in Paris, the school for Americans. Our adventure begins with one red headed short girl, Isla, who is high on medication from having her wisdom teeth removed. She walks into a cafe only to see her crush for the last 3 years sitting in a booth. Her drugged mind finds the courage to talk to him, flirt and make him laugh. This is the beginning of a sweet, hot and heartbreaking romance.
Isla is shy, set in her life style and a bit insecure. She has issues about her body's height challenge and wears high heels even if it makes her feet hurt. She loves with her whole being, but she also fears with her whole heart. This fear, and her giving into it will break your heart.
Josh is the man of her dreams. He was the one she watched love another girl in their circle at school. He is an artist with a reputation of not living by the rules of the school. He gets in trouble, spends a lot of time in detention and seems aloof. He has many little secrets, and some issues of his own to grow through. He is also deeply romantic.
Together these two slowly develop their story. It is paced maidenly slow sometimes and too fast at others. Life steps in and their path is disrupted. He opens his soul to her and the magic happens. There is no violence, no disrespect, no abuse, no typically written High School rudeness. This is a good story/series that needs none of the shock gimmicks to hold it up. They all end in a HEA, and this one was even more deserved than the others IMHO.
