… was such a disappointment.

It was a downer. Little of the breathless, beach read voyeurism of the first two. The most grounded characters were either sidelined or given depressing subplots (custody hearings); everyone seemed poorly sketched; the ending felt tacked and like a poor attempt at a veneer of realism painted onto a romance novel.

Despite being a follow up to a book that featured a near fetal poisoning and kidney failure, this one felt like so much more of a bummer. Skip.
