Why did I pick this book: The author, Lindsay Paige, requested that I review her upcoming third book in the Bold As Love series and I happily accepted. (I was provided with a free copy of the book for review purposes.)

Did I enjoy this book: It was pretty good. I read it just about every free chance I had. It was another quick read that held my interest for the most part.

Again, as with I’m Yours, there were quite a few sex scenes that were rather explicit for a young adult crowd. The struggles between Emily and Jake were pretty real and difficult for first year college kids. Emily’s continuing struggle and emotional breakdowns over her miscarriage dominated most of this book. At times, it was hard to like and connect with Emily and with Jake. At other times, I just hoped that they would find their love for one another and power through. 

Possible SPOILER! The twist toward the end was not expected. It was a very interesting way to resolve some tough emotional issues both Jake and Emily were experiencing. I enjoyed the end even though it was a sort of cliffhanger. The story resolved but left an unanswered question that leads to a fourth book. 

Would I recommend it: If you have read the first two books in the Bold As Love series – Sweetness and I’m Yours – then, yes, I would recommend that you read this book as well. This is not a book for the younger young adult crowd. 

Will I read it again: I will not. 

About the book – from Goodreads: Their first year of college isn’t what they expected. Emily is still struggling with the loss of her baby, while Jake seems to have no trouble with it at all. Emily is so conflicted about how to deal with the miscarriage. On top of that, she’s having nightmares. 

Can Jake help his Sweetness? Will she allow him? Their relationship is suffering and Jake is determined to do whatever Emily asks of him. But when Emily makes a suggestion that she feels will help with her grief, could it tear the couple apart forever? 

Happy reading wherever you are and whenever you get a free chance!!!
