Like going home to visit old friends, Letting Go takes readers back to Rock Bay and re-acquaints us with the characters from book one. They are fun an..Show More »d sweet and full of personality, each bringing a uniqueness to the book. With the beginning of the book focused on the main character's past -Drew and Mason- it started quite slowly. If their background could've been integrated within the present-day story, the flow might've been smoother but regardless, there was so much to love about the characters. Drew and Mason's love story was sweet - their obstacles never too much for them to overcome. I enjoyed listening to the narrator bring life to the author's words, and am eager to read about more of the characters from Rock Bay.
I really enjoyed the first book in this series and thought this third one would be just as good. It is a classic hurt/comfort story. Justin is a you..Show More »ng man who has been abused most of his life by his father. The abuse was severe, almost killing him at one point. The reason for the abuse is very simplistically stated as homophobia, but the father's action definitely scream more was at play. Logan is the protector, straight guy that develops a crush on Justin. There is A LOT of angst and the MCs don't get together until well pass the midway point of the book. The basic romance is sweet, but I was very disappointed in the resolution of the father issue and some of Justin's actions.
When I read about an abuse victim in books, usually it leads to some type of growth on the characters part by confronting the abuser or overcoming the demons. I didn't really get that in this book. Without giving spoilers, I will just say I was disappointed about this aspect. Also some of Justin's actions bordered on TSTL. The best part about this book was the narrator. He does a fantastic job, as he did in the first book. It was also great to see the entire Rock Bay gang again playing supporting roles.
