“I know you do,” Farrow says, like an ass.

I started this book not in the right mood for romance stories full of drama so obviously I stopped reading after 10%. I knew I was going to love this third book of this series but I also knew there were going to be some over the top events that were going to play hard with my heart. I was right from the start and I felt overwhelmed. I allowed myself a week without it so that I could return to the story refreshed and with a calm heart. It did wonders and I finished this book with a gigantic smile on my face and so much love in my heart.
“Love is pain, and you know what…I feel sorry for anyone who hasn’t met it yet.”
I missed Farrow and Maximoff and their flirts, how they try to hide their smiles, how much they love each other and how they show it with words, actions and so much more. I didn’t want them to fight or to question their relationship; I wanted them to grow together as persons and to see each other deeply inside and out. Their love was The Love from the very beginning so I was sure nothing was going to come between them but one is never too careful, right? I was scared and anxious so you may understand why I didn’t read it for a week. I was all nerves and tears for no reason and seeing them probably suffering was not going to help me get better, right? No matter how positive I was about the happy ending I knew they (WE) deserved!
“Dum spiro, spero,” he reads the Cicero quote. His eyes well up again. On a day that rocked us both, he said he loved that quote. It was a quiet moment inside a storm. The memory is as tranquil as the quote itself. While I breathe, I hope.
This book is a lot more about Maximoff and Farrow’s relationship and less about Moffy’s siblings and relatives. He still got involved in however random things they did but it wasn’t as present as in the previous books. I love how much more of the story was about them facing changes and figuring out how they wanted to live their lives and how each other fit in them. It was more mature and I love it.
“I want everything you said in the rain. All of it.”
Farrow easily recalls each word, and his eyes stroke mine in hot, tender affection.
“That’s good because it looks like we want the same thing.”
There’s always one thing that bothers me a tiny bit. Their lives seems so over the top, over dramatic, over everything, that it’s somewhat frustrating to read because I always find myself thinking “what the hell? This is absurd!” and I kept shaking my head. I guess celebrities’ lives are hard but I didn’t think they could be THAT hard. Colour me impressed.
I thought this was going to be the last book of the series but I’ve seen some more sequels and a promise of a new Moffy & Farrow’s book about a certain something I can’t wait to witness. I can’t wait!
