Lives are turned upside down …

Everything was perfect before life came to a screeching halt.

Life goes on …

Amelia’s friends move heaven and earth to help ease her sadness. Knowing she’s on a dangerous precipice, they fight through their own pain to bring her safely to the other side of her grief.

Love can conquer …

Amelia knows bottling up her feelings isn’t helping anything. With love at her fingertips, all she has to do is reach for it. Mel’s loved ones desperately hope she can once again find her way to happiness.

Can Amelia overcome her fears to let love in again, or will she let the weight of that night continue to drown her in sorrow?

This book didn’t take me 6 days to read but I had to read other books first. I was too excited to get the conclusion that I had to start it! This review is not going to be super long but not because it’s not amazing, because there’s too many words to describe and they all would spoil this journey for you. And I HATE when people do that so I’m not going to be that guy. BUT good news, book 1 is currently free and book 2 is $.99. Do yourself a favor and buy them!

This book continues after the end of Side B so you need to read Side A & B first. Mel and all the BAD members have just suffered catastrophic events. This book was the ending I needed! This book and this series is so epic and so emotion-evoking, that this will give you a hangover. This book is so well written that you will feel ALL THE FEELS along with the characters.

One side note: there is some time jumping (prior events to today and back again) which normally would throw me off but it’s CRITICAL to this story and works beautifully!

I cannot express my love for this series and D. Kelly for reaching out so I could experience this and Amelia and the BAD members.

5 stars!
