A Slow Start, but Finished On A High Note

I wasn't quite sure about this book when it began. I listened to the audio book. I started out being a little disappointed because it seemed like all Maddox and Dee did was have sex. I thought the narration was great.

The story started to pick up when Dee started to experience difficulties with the way Cami's life was changing, and how it didn't include her sometimes. I liked that Maddox and Dee grew closer and started to share more info about their pasts. I started to get a sense of the depth of their relationship and the issues that haunted each of them.

The next twist that made the story move along was a blast from Maddox's past. The drama, the crazy, the angst was kicked up a notch. The frustration as Maddox attempted to make stupid moves and the surprising source of advice.

Let me not forget the cake tasting and the wedding planner. That whole scene was enjoyable.

I knew it wasn't over. There was that one final slightly suspenseful twist. To top it off, I was so happy to get the awesome epilogue. (I am a sucker for a goid epilogue!)

A slow start to a book the became an Interesting, mildly angsty and suspenseful book that was full of love, loyalty, friendship, family, and romance.

Ah yes another great story

Maybe I’m simple but I love this story just as much, friendship is a great thing and it helped this story just like the other two...one of my favorite series...and I’m partial to Bentley and the voice for him is so fitting... the three guys are a wonderful listen

Maddox deserves to be loved

Melanie Moreland has created a very interesting group of friends.
This romance was long due and I liked how it worked out.

Another of the BAM boys!

Audiobook: Narrators - John Lane and Maxine Mitchell

Great representation of the characters. Each very distinctive, especially those BAM boys. I enjoyed listening to this and Mr. Lane’s voice is absolute perfection!


I loved getting Maddox’s full story. His past has left him with the need to be in control. He is also unlikely to give into emotions, except perhaps where Aiden and Bentley are concerned. But Dee sneaks into his life and eventually his heart and while he promised a friends with benefits type of arrangement to begin with, he’s soon trying to wriggle himself out of that and into something more with her.

This was an especially steamy read as compared to the previous two books, but it was perfect considering the relationship this couple initially agreed upon. I did feel that Dee’s character changed a bit out of character from how she was portrayed in the first two books, but I’m a lenient reader and just rolled with the flow.

The drama here is a combination of outside forces as well as the relationship between Maddox and Dee. They each have much to over come and watching them struggle to get to a good place was often heartbreaking, but the ending was absolutely beautiful.

With the addition of the fun times between the BAM boys, the intense chemistry between this couple and the additional suspense and drama this kept me

Perfect book, perfect series!

It’s official. I’m addicted to Melanie Moreland. I can’t put these books down, they are my catnip! I love a strong woman and a man who isn’t riding in to save the day, but works with and for the heroine to save the day. Love! It’s everything I want a book to be. And the narration is flawless in this series! I love the continuity of the same narrators voicing all the characters.

Best of the trilogy

This story was the best of the trilogy. I liked the plot and there was very little use of the lame pet names that were used in the other two stories. They sure drink a lot of coffee!

A great addition to this series

Both Maddox and Deidre are affected by their illtreatment when children. Always putting on a cold exterior in order to protect their hearts.
But slowly the warmth of love begins to melt them. I enjoyed this story and the humour which drew me to the characters. The narrators did an amazing job of bringing the story to life and I highly recommend this book.

Third in the series getting dry

Pushing the friendship a bit far by book 3. Just flitting to much into the other two main couples’ stories and trying to wrap all up in a neat bow, without giving this story enough substance unfortunately. First in series was good, second okay, this one meh.
