Loaded with thrills and chills, this conclusion to Dylan and Myra s story was much faster paced than the last one It was very good, and Dylan was amazing when he wasn t being an asshole But he was a sexy and tormented asshole,.The cliffy we were left with was quickly resolved, but the fallout from that carried on much farther into the story Dylan was incredible in dealing with his mistakes He was so intense, so tortured, it killed me sometimes.But then he d go all asshole again Gheesh But I really understood his reservations After suffering through the loss he did, I could only imagine my reaction to everything He was scared and petrified of reliving the past Thank goodness he had the most awesome family on earth to help him see the light and not ruin the best thing to have happened to him He resisted hence his assholish tendencies but when he finally relented and saw that what he faced was actually a giftbeautiful Myra, although I liked her she was often too lenient on Dylan s crap I like to call it doormatitis I totally understood Susie s frustration with her But at the same time, Myra s persistence on hanging around only solidified Dylan s feelings for her So who s to blame No one really But I would have loved to see Myra leave if only to prove to Dylan that she s capable of doing so But that all didn t matter because when things got resolved Dylan became the man he was destined to be and Myra became the woman that made it happen That s epic love The whole thing with Sabrina was sad and heartbreaking She was out of line but I completely understood where she came from I m glad things looked up for her too Susiethat woman s a riot, Jeff too And Dylan s family, they were so supportive and so dependable and lovingloved all of them Especially Scott, he was a hilarious What a great brother too There were 2 epilogues, 2 The first one was good but a smidgin too long I think I would have preferred it written as another chapter but dated 8 months later, while the second was what I really wanted 8 years down the road and things are still great with Dylan and Myra Great series, really sweet. 4.5 but will up it to 5 because I f g loved Dylan Oh, Dylan, with your shaggy hair, your bristly whiskers, your awful bad language, your bad moods, your anger, your loneliness, your stubbornness everything about you I loved This picked up just where the last one finished and I did really like the last one also There was misunderstandings, crying, sex, kissing, lips, crying, family, friends, f g bad language, crying yep, you get the picture The only thing I did not like was the amount of times Myra was in tears, or close to tears or had tears in her eyes I wanted to hop her head of the new kitchen cabinet Dylan was installing for her We knew Dylan had a past and it was fairly heartbreaking But Myra was there for him and together they did eventually make it There was the Psycho not who I was expecting The best friend, Susie she was a hoot I laughed out load a few times at some of the stuff she came out with, yeah, some of it was a bit vulgar but that was just the way she was Jackie annoyed me trying too hard to be the new BFF Chad, Sabrina never really felt sorry for her not sure why but in the end was glad to hear her story also Dylan s parents and siblings altogether they were a great bunch The story really flowed and the EPILOGUE That is what I want to read at the end of a book I want to see further down the road, not just a few weeks later This was EIGHT years later and Dylan and Myra still had the passion and the sparkle Highly recommend this one Thanks to the author for my FIRST ever ARC Glad it was a good one cos if it wasn t I am not sure if I would have been able to review Hope no one is offended by use of the F word but some situations warrant it..

major tidbit is revealed that changes everything It s of magnitude proportion and brings their relationship to a grinding halt In the midst of this devastation, Myra s life is put into danger from an unknown stalker Another highlight is Dylan s large family Their love and concern for him shows a devoted family Being so alone and with no living relatives made their response to Myra a pleasure It reminded me of the movie, While You Were Sleeping where the heroine not only falls in love with the hero, but also his entire family It s very touching and a lovely part of this story While I enjoyed this journey I did have a few quibbles, one being the feeling of too much The conversations and details are sometimes long It s over 500 pages and I found myself skimming to get to the good parts The plot and writing are both good and flows nicely This is Madeleine Beckett s second novel and I m thinking we ll be seeing much from her in the very near future Dylan and Myra were broken, each struggling with their inner turmoil in their own way Theirs is a journey of not only finding true love but emotional healing as well I m very glad for their Happy Ending I came to admire and love Dylan Lawson The author did a good job with his character growth An epilogue is given that is superb and one of the sweetest HEA s I ve readThank you Madeleine for kindly providing a copy of your book in exchange for an honest review 4.5 Fantastic healing stars There s so much to love about this book, it s impossible to list Especially most of the things are spoilers What needs to be said first and foremost is that I didn t like either Dylan or Myra in the first book, Color of Lonelinessbut that changed immensely in this book Myra went from a shy, kind of mousey character in CoL to a strong, supportive rock star in this book Her support for Dylan during the revelation of his secret, his coldness to her when he finds out her secret was never ending She understood him and never fled Dylan.wow, what a transformation in my mind In CoL, he was cold hearted, rough around the edges, and had no redeeming qualities with me The end of CoL has part of his past as a cliffy but his real secrets come out tenfold in this book My heart cracked open for this man His grief and pain he d held in for years, denying himself happiness and the ability to move forward Although I was a bit irritated with his aloofness to Myra when her little secret comes out, he stands by day and night to protect her from the threat lurking in the shadows Myra teaches him love and that allowing himself happiness is not taking away from his past grief he s endured There s plenty of love in a person s heart His just needed to be tapped Once he learned that, the man was my hero What a great guy Myra s BFF Susie is still a hoot in this book, as is Dylan s brother, Chad Those two were laugh out loud characters Dylan s family was so loving and supportive of Myra, who has no family left The book was long but it went by rather quickly We got the answers to all the questions from CoL and we got the closure we needed The two epilogues gave us a great ending to a story that needed the happiness and closure in the end. If you haven t read the first book, there may be spoilers for it hidden in this review When we last saw Dylan and Myra, these two had finally acted on their growing feelings for each other Directly afterwards, Dylan does a mysterious disappearing act, leaving Myra to wonder whether what just happened was an unplanned booty call Especially when she hunts him down at his house and is greeted by a woman wearing nothing but his shirt who claims to be his ex wife So yeah, what woman WOULDN T jump to the wrong conclusion there This next part was my first problem with the book Myra and Dylan make plans for Dylan to come to her house to explain what the heck just happened because Dylan couldn t just tell her right there at his house but before the meeting takes place, Myra is now called away on an emergency back in Philly Not only does she leave without telling Dylan, but she retains a running hissy fit for days and won t even answer him on the phone Dylan is desperate to talk, drama dramaMyra has a new secret, drama dramaand the story turns into a miniseries of soap opera ish proportions.Now, I have to say, I was a big fan of Dylan, so I m a bit partial to the big jerk But instead of him apologizing for his sudden departure after their sexy times, I think Myra should have simply let him explain Instead, Myra is a drama queen girl Turns out, I think she should have been the one apologizing for making Dylan feel guilty about his situation Dylan is working through some INTENSE issues, something so painful and powerful that it changed my entire perspective of him I tend to love the heroeswomen in books start out one rung down on the ladder because I already don t like their gender They bother me Giggling is one of the most annoying things a girl can do in a bookand the word count for the word giggle is 111 Just sayin That is an insane amount of giggling.I still liked the plot of this story, but the execution seemed to drag out for an inordinate amount of time I think about 100 pages here and there could easily been cut out without detracting from Myra and Dylan s story Too many details when some could have been left to the imagination, too many BIG MOMENTS, too many things going on A little example One huge moment of the story has a big dramatic scene that ends one of the plot lines for the book At the end of the chapter, the wording is as if it s the end of the booka closing line if I ever heard one, and yet there are still over a hundred pages to go A couple of things that I loved I love Dylan s whole family Their crazy love for each other made me love Dylan that much The way their stories infiltrated Myra and Dylan s life really helped to bring this book full circle for methey rounded out the story and made it feel like real life They gave this could a future filled with love and support no matter what is to come The real life issues I love books that deal with kids and families and bills and REAL things Yes, the fantasy helps to make a great romance, but for me to believe in that romance, I want to hear some yucky stuff too And Dylan and Myra deal with death and life and ex wives and annoying best friendsthings that normal people encounter on their journey with their special someone So when I put this book down, I truly felt as if they were in it for the long haul And that was before I got to the epilogue The EPILOGUE Oh, this is what epilogues were made for This was swoony and teary and heartbreaking and heartwarming all at once It was an EPIC EPILOGUE if ever I did see one, and such a beautiful way to end Dylan and Myra s journey to love and healing.Many thanks to Madeleine Beckett for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I don t know if I can even explain my love for this book.The begining picks up right at the end of Color of Loneliness The author even gave a quick review before the story starts of that crazy cliffhanger ending, which was genius of her, IMHO.
