The final installment in the series here. Don’t forget to enter the blog exclusive giveaway attached to the review for Avenge Me, book one in the series.
The final installment in the series brings us to the conclusion of the revenge plans and brings the series to a satisfying conclusion. We’ve met several of Sarah’s college friends, and this book brings us more. Alex is successful and determined, he’s built a media empire and has found the perfect opportunity to bring down the archnemesis of the story: Jason Treffen.
Alex is planning to divulge Treffen’s secrets on a highly popular show hosted by Chelsea. Someone that Alex has worked to get close to, in his attempts to manipulate his scenario to his own liking. There isn’t as much interior second-guessing in this book, so the dialog was more involved and interesting, encouraging the reader’s emotional connection. There are secrets here too though, and Alex’s desire and choices may be detrimental to Chelsea.
As far as characters go, Alex was until near the very end, my least favorite, and felt as if he was the most manipulative of all we we have met to this point. His single mindedness despite the potential damage to Chelsea was troubling. Their connection felt real, even if Alex is fighting a very real crisis of conscience. Yet Chelsea is no wilting flower and she does manage to understand the need for revenge and present options where they both can be satisfied.
These two work well together and the “will he or won’t he” tension about Alex’s decision manage to keep the plot moving forward and displaying the interplay between the characters in ways that is both exciting and realistic. Hewitt manages to wrap up the story nicely with good pacing and sexy moments that was satisfying and presented a logical end for the series.
