Natasha was DEVASTATED when Jackson, her first love, disappeared without a word only to pop up months later as a famous DJ. But now she’s over it―over him!―and ready to move on with her life! Isn’t she?

Jackson thought he was leaving Dodge Cove behind forever when he set off to LA to start his career as a DJ. But the one thing he had never been able to leave behind was the memory of his first love, Natasha, and now that he’s proven his success, he’s coming home to win her back…

Get ready to stop time, defy gravity and bring down the stars in this final book in Kate Evangelista’s Dodge Cove Trilogy!

I received an ARC of this book from the Publisher as part of the Blog Tour. No compensation in any form was received for the review of this book.

I dove into this book knowing only one thing, that it’s going to be about Natasha. I trust Kate Evangelista’s writing enough that I know I’ll end up loving this book, like I did with No Love Allowed and No Holding Back. I saw how this trilogy started and I’m a little sad that it came to a close. That being said, this was a solid conclusion to the trilogy. Although, technically speaking, the books can be read as standalones. Still, I am going to miss Dodge Cove!

Four chapters into the book and I already felt really emotionally invested with the characters and the story. The book started really well. I loved Natasha since the first book, she’s my favorite character and I loved her even more as I read this one. Jackson was lovely too! I have to admit that I really didn’t pay attention to him from the last book well, since he left Natasha (sisters before misters, yo!) but he definitely surprised me.

“You are every beat of my heart.”

I read this book in one sitting, and it’s a pretty fast and light read. I wish I could’ve seen more into the story though. I felt like there could be more depth in terms of Natasha and Jackson’s break up. I don’t know if it was just me, or almost everyone seemed forgiving towards Jackson. Also, the conflict between Jackson and his family could’ve been explored further. Honestly, I think this book has a bigger potential, but I’m still glad that it delivered pretty solid.

Overall, I really enjoyed reading this book. It made me smile for a solid two hours of reading. I definitely recommend this book, and the rest of the trilogy in case you haven’t got to them yet! It’s a great mix of romance, drama, and friendships!
