“Our bad days have the ability to become better. It may be a horrible month. A horrible year. But there will be good days, good moments, great seconds.”
What an ending.
It’s been almost a month since I finished this book, and I’m still having trouble sorting out my thoughts. It’s the end of an era. The epilogue of all the stories I’ve come to love. This series that I picked up on a whim, that grew to be my absolute favorite, is now finished.
I’m so conflicted. Because even though this was the perfect end to a perfect series, I can’t believe that it’s over. Because even though I couldn’t have come up with a better finish, I know that I’ll never get another book featuring the characters again.
Sure, they might be in the background of the Like Us series. I’m sure they’ll pop up in Whatever It Takes. But it won’t be the same.
But still, I am continually impressed with the way that Krista and Becca Ritchie develop their characters. They grow, just like real people, throughout the series. They make mistakes and learn from them. Things happen and they get stronger. Their relationships get better. I feel like I’ve watched these characters grow from babies into powerful adults. It’s the best kind of feeling.
The first book in this series is Addicted to You. If you haven’t picked it up yet, please do. It’s free on Amazon, so there’s literally nothing to lose. And it only gets better as we’re introduced to more characters. If you look at my reviews, you can see that my ratings only get higher as the series goes on. (Although I’m sure if I re-read the series from the beginning, knowing what I know now, I would give it five stars all the way through.)
The last thing I want is to spoil anybody’s experience with this series, so I’m going to end my review here. Just know that I’ve loved this series more than anything, and while I’ll miss these characters more than I can express, I cannot wait to move on to the next generation in Damaged Like Us.
Final rating: ★★★★★
For my 2016 reading challenge, I crossed off #7: a romance set in the future.
