Cat Crawford just wants to be normal—or at least as normal as a daughter of Hollywood royalty can be. And it looks like fate is granting her wish: she’s got an amazing boyfriend, Lucas; her fabulous cousin, Alessandra, living with her; and her dad planning his second marriage to a great future stepmom. That is, until her prodigal mother reveals on national television that she has something important to tell her daughter…causing a media frenzy.

Lucas Capelli knows his fate is to be with Cat, and he’s worked hard to win her over once and for all. Unfortunately, Lucas has his own issues to deal with, including a scandal that could take him away from the first place he’s truly belonged.

As secrets are revealed, rumors explode, and the world watches, Cat and Lucas discover it’s not fate they have to fight if they want to stay together…this time, it’s their own insecurities.
Well, and the stalkerazzi.
What a great way to wrap up this enchanting series! In true Rachel Harris fashion she packs in the entertainment  sigh worthy romance, plenty of laugh out loud moments/lines, and characters I'm not ready to say good bye to. 

What a fabulous series. As I said in one of previous reviews for the series, I'm not sure why it took me so long to read it. I've fallen in love with some great characters. I've absolutely loved getting whisked away into this enchanting world Rachel has created. I've loved reading about characters who felt real, and loves watching their relationships grow and bloom into romances. I've loved swooning and sighing, and laughing out loud with the characters. 

This time around this story is told from Lucas and Cat's point of views. I really liked getting into Lucas's head. I felt that I really got to know Cat from the previous two books, but Lucas almost seemed to good to be true. I mean that in a very positive way. He is fabulous! He was patient in book two, and now this time around he has want he wanted, and he'll do everything he can to keep Cat, and always be there for her. 

Lucas is Cat's knight in shinning armor. He's that guy who came into the series, and proved to her that she can love again. More than that, Lucas is someone who loves Cat for who she is, and allows her to just be her. He accepts her for her. In the midst of all the crazy that goes down in this book from Cat's mom, and that pesky magic that keeps bringing the past into the future, Lucas is the one person who gives Cat what she needs, and that's someone who will fight for her. *sigh* Oh yes.... Rachel brings that 16th century romance I first fell in love with in book one, into this story via Lucas. 

Lucas and Cat both have a lot going on in this book. They both have their own issues that arise that they need deal with, while at the same time, figure out where their future together stands. Austin and Less are just as fabulous as ever. These two are the perfect side kicks for Cat and Lucas. They give those swift kick in the butts when needed, listen and give advice, and are just there for each other. All four of them have that genuine relationship that I totally loved watching develop as the series has gone on.

I won't give anything away, but I will say this is a series worth reading! I read all three books back to back, and it was totally worth being sleep deprived over. Rachel Harris has become one of my "go to authors". Those are the authors who's books I know that when nothing else holds my attention, I can sit down with one of her books and immediately get sucked into her story. Though that ending felt complete, there's still part of me that hopes that maybe one more book will be published... I don't want this series to end just yet. 

Now I'm going to impatiently wait for the publisher to publish this book. It's a huge pet peeve of mine when publishing houses don't publish the last book like they do with the rest of the series. Now my books will sit on my shelf incomplete, and that's totally annoying to me. There, I said it. It is. I want this book in my hands. lol 

About Rachel

As a teen, Rachel Harris threw raging parties that shook her parents’ walls and created embarrassing fodder for future YA novels. As an adult, she reads and writes obsessively, rehashes said embarrassing fodder, and dreams up characters who become her own grown up version of imaginary friends.
She grew up in New Orleans, watching soap operas with her grandmother and staying up late sneak reading her mam's favorite romance novels. Now a Cajun cowgirl living in Houston, she still stays up too late reading her favorite romances, only now, she can do so openly. She firmly believes life's problems can be solved with a hot, powdered-sugar-coated beignet or a thick slice of king cake, and that screaming at strangers for cheap, plastic beads is acceptable behavior in certain situations.
She homeschools her two beautiful girls and loves watching reality television with her amazing husband. She writes young adult, new adult, and adult Fun, Flirty Escapes, and LOVES talking with readers!
