This was my favorite book of the series. It had everything I love - action, suspense, major character growth and yes, lovin! I was on the edge of my seat for the entire book.
All the characters have strong and distinctive personalities, and I love them all. Although this series is about Neil's journey, it was Andrew who captivated me from the beginning. Every gesture of trust and feeling Andrew expressed tore right through me. Both Neil and Kevin made personal strides as well, but it's Andrew I needed to come through this the most. The author made the progress of these characters believable. There was no magic love cure for these characters. They basically still have all the same issues, except now they have some hope.
Here's my only niggle. I felt like some of the plot issues were resolved too easily. For the most part, everything was tied with a nice neat bow. I would have liked a loose end or two. I know, I know, I'm crazy to complain about something like this, but to me leaving a little bit of uncertainty creates more mystery and keeps the characters alive.
I love the feeling of camaraderie Exy brought out in these highly dysfunctional and unstable guys. It was an exciting ride!
