Together, Silas Nash and Charlize Wynwood must look deeper into the past to find out who they were and who they want to be. With time ticking down, the couple are in a race to find the answers they need before they lose everything.
Can they regain what they once had? And will it restore who they once were?
After the first two books, I knew that I had to read this book. The need for answers and explanations was too much, even with my monster headache! I have to say, thought, I was disappointed with the explanation that was given. I think the ending was anticlimactic and I sort of just sat there after closing the book and thought to myself “Is that really it? After all that, that is the explanation they went for? Really?”
I love the way this book carried on directly from the last sentence of the last book. I think it made things more authentic and it flowed nicely. Of course, I was left (as a reader) wondering why Silas had his memories from the last 48 hours, but Charlie lost hers all over again). Pretty sure Silas was wondering the same thing. I definitely enjoyed the way we got to learn a little bit more about Charlie’s back story (in connection with Silas’ family) because I feel like it gave a bit more depth into her character. I wasn’t expecting her dad to be the way he was because the entire series made it sound like it was a frame job. I obviously don’t want to give too much away, but it was a little shocking.
Of course, as mentioned above, I was left pondering why Silas had his memories from the last 48 hours and why he didn’t lose them all over again like Charlie did. It left me confused, until they decided to try out a particular theory. A theory that explained everything about the end and why these events were happening to them. When Silas mentioned said theory, I knew that this was what the authors were going to use to explain away everything that had happened to the characters. I still hoped that they wouldn’t, though!
I think this was probably the weakest ending to a series that I loved, ever. I didn’t (and still don’t) understand what they had to use an ending like that. It was definitely a roll your eyes and sick in a bucket moment and I was left disappointed. I wanted something extreme and exciting – something to do with the families, or someone around them doing something without them realising… but no. I get that! It was a weak ending and I just… ugh. Rant over.
What I did love about this book, though, was that (in the previous book, we watched Silas), we watched Charlie fall in love with Silas all over again! I loved the fact that he used old jokes that he managed to pick up from journal entries and letters that they wrote to each other, to make her fall in love with him again (it was all part of their theory and the theory that ultimately ruined the book!). It was really cute to watch and it definitely had me girly giggling in certain places!
I really wanted to love this ending, but it was a huge disappointment! I loved most of the other factors of this book, but with a weak ending, it amounts to nothing. I gave this book 3.5/5 stars.
Have you read this book/series? What did you think of the end theory?
