Wow, I just did not enjoy this book at all. The main character is just walked all over by seemingly everyone and just takes it. When she finds out who did her wrong or confronts people who are overly mean, she does pretty much nothing except mumble under her breath. Now, if it were me, there would be a HUGE amount of swearing, some cake throwing or whatever is handy, maybe hair pulling and scratching faces of a certain someone in this book - but definitely the first two. I didn't care for anybody in this book.
I'm glad this series is over because with this last book it ends on a highish note. There was the constant fugue state Rachel was in, with people shaking her, clearing their throats, etc. to get her to either wake up or pay attention. And I got real tired of her constant second guessing whether she was good for Trent. Ugh! Either stay or go - this back and forth was exhausting for me and I'm not a fictional character this is happening to! In addition, there was constant second guessing that went on with practically every decision Rachel had to make so put that on top of my other complaint. I thought the ending put a few toes over the mooshy marshmallow sweetness happy-ever-after ending, but the author drew herself back before I got dizzy from rolling my eyes. I'm giving it a generous (to me) 3-1/2 stars, which I didn't ding down further just because it was the last book in the series.
I am probably the only one who still has not forgiven Trent for what he did to Rachel when she was a mink (or whatever it was) in the first book. That was beyond mean, and went to cruel.
Also, I think a mom has just as much right to a child as a father and so believe in 50/50 custody. You'll have to read the book to figure out what I'm talking about.
Other than that, one of my favorite series.
