In the final chapter of the Ember Peak series, Tru and Jones face an unexpected challenge on their road to happy ever after.

Tru and Jones never expected riding off into the sunset to be easy. Their relationship’s script has never been silver-screen smooth or shiny. But dealing with life’s boulders, washouts, and irksome little details seems downright easy now…because they’re facing each bump in the road together.

But when Tru’s sister announces she wants—and desperately needs—him and Jones to adopt her baby, the new couple’s notions of family, home, their upcoming marriage, and even living at Ember Peak are flung into chaos.

They’ve defined themselves as lovers, partners, and future husbands—but are they ready, and do they even want to be, fathers? If they are to form a forever family, Tru and Jones will have to help each other navigate a new path they never expected to travel.

I don’t even know what to say in this review. The writing. The writing is the only thing that saved this book. This author is a 5-star writer for me, so I’m really frustrated that I’m going with 3 stars, barely, because of how much I hated the events and Sandra in this book. This will be ranty. You’ve been warned.

What was hinted at in Book 2 actually did happen. In Chapter 1!!!! Sandra did it, yall. She fucking did it. So this was me the entire book as the events played out:

Really, this review is devoted to Sandra:

As for Tru and Jones, they didn’t say a peep about it. Not one peep. They just allowed her to pull her epic failure as a human being and gave her a pat on the back for doing it.

Was her behavior explained? Sure.

Do I fucking care? Nope. Nope. Nope.

No one should be enabled to be that much of an asshole. I cannot erase this clusterfuck of events off my Kindle quickly enough. Shame because I adore these two MCs and am really freakin aggravated that Danford took it in this direction.
