I was given this book in turn for an honest review.
Declan Reede has had his whole world turned upside down. With his dream career over and the papers trashing his name, he has lost everything, or has he? Will he be strong enough to fight or will he allow his demons and enemies to win?
Michelle Irwin left us with hell of a cliff hanger in Book #2 and I had been eagerly awaiting book #3. My heart was breaking for Declan and I wanted nothing more than to crawl into my kindle and hug him, give him the love and support he desperately needed. Needless to say Michelle completely blindsided me at the start of this book and threw a spanner into the works that I had been hoping for, one Declan so desperately deserved. One full of hope!
This is the sweetest book in the series yet, this book will have your heart melting more often than not. I can truly say that the love, strength and connection Declan and Alyssa shared was stronger than ever in book #3 and showed the world they were a force to be reckoned with. They were adults and they had learnt from their past mistakes, they had learned to trust and support each other no matter the circumstances and no matter what the outsider influences threw at them.
Alyssa really grew on me in this book, she was beginning to see that the consequences and the actions of their past wasn’t completely Declan’s fault that she had played a part in it and that she had been quick to jump to conclusions. She was also proving the level of trust she had put on Declan was high, that she believed in him.
Declan was a changed man, he was the young boy who feel in love all those years ago, the mature family orientated boy who wanted a future with the girl he loved as well as his dream career.
Phoebe stole my heart, that little girl has you wrapped around her little finger each time she opens her mouth!
This story has a lot of revelations, the truth comes thick and fast and not just about the enemies Declan didn’t even know he had. It brought to the forefront even more how much outside influences had affected the relationship between Declan and Alyssa, how lack of communication and jumping to conclusions ultimately tore them apart.
I thoroughly loved this story, and thankfully their story isn’t over yet! There is a lot to still be answered and I want to see my favourite racer and his family get the HEA they all deserve.
If you enjoy suspenseful contemporary romances with a little erotica thrown in for good measure, you will absolutely love the Declan Reede: The Untold Story series by Michelle Irwin.
