I thought I was ready for the conclusion to the Wayward Series. I was sadly mistaken… In book three Love brought on the fire in this story as she wanted to leave us with something to think about. This story was filled with emotional issues, loving deeply, passionate relationships, pain, feelings of rejection, redemption and dealing with real life.
This story also allowed readers to see the growth and development in Kennedi.. She had a major transformation in this story. I was rarely aggravated with her this time around. At the conclusion of book 2, Kennedi had decided she could no longer deal with all the working parts that made up Isaak’s Royal Empire, and maintain her sanity. Kennedi had to contend with the baby’s momma’s, the kids, her dad and mom’s issues and loosing the baby. And most importantly, her love of Isaak and feeling like she was not enough… In book three, after going through the motions with David, I was so happy that he petered out and left the door open for Isaak and Kennedi to find one another again. I liked the new and improved Kennedi. This time Isaak grew a bit more as well. He was able to finally feel loved without reservations. When Kennedi decided she wanted Isaak back, he did not stand a chance of getting away from her. Kennedi’s strong willed ways and determination was infallible this time around. Because Isaak’s character was just so laid back and not easily moved, this was not an easy feat for Kennedi.
The facts that jumped off the pages in clear and passionate fashion was the chemistry and love between Kennedi and Isaak. It was painfully obvious that they were both suffering needlessly by denying the love they shared. I understood Isaak’s point of view, as Kennedi walked away. In her wake, the kids and Isaak, were left to deal with her loss cold turkey… with no medications to easy the pain…Honestly- I have never witnessed a character in a story who loved another woman’s children like she loved Isaak’s kids. For that reason, I could also see her point of view as well. Also, it was refreshing that Isaak finally took full ownership of his children’s well-being. It goes without saying how arousing a love scene written by Love Belvin can be. She brings out all sorts of emotions whether we a ready or not. In this story, I laughed, cried, yelled, and I was comforted in the end. The signs of a good writing is when the story evokes many emotions. This story did that and more. A superb story.. 5+ Stars
