In the final book of the Mile High Romance series, we lose someone we've come to love throughout the series. Simon is working at Stormy Nights Kennel to help Alex and Shane get through a hard time. But when tragedy strikes the family, the rebuilding comes from an unlikely source.
I have been with these characters since the beginning and while fitting to end the series where it began I was left wanting more.
Alex and Shane are my favorites of the series and when tragedy strikes this close-knit group of friends it's hard to bear witness to it.
I will not spoil anything in the book except to say that I cried more in this story than any of the others and some of those (think When You Were Mine) were just gut-wrenching to read this one left me reaching for my kleenex on multiple occasions.
I would have liked to see more of the development of the relationship between the MC's and there is a lot of understandable heartaches but all in all it was sweet and ended on a hopeful note.
It's hard sometimes for us as readers because we get emotionally invested in the lives and loves of the characters we read and when one of them is killed we feel like a part of us is being lost too and sometimes it feels like a betrayal because our boys are happy and settled and that should be how it remains but not every story ends that way. But the good stories leave you with hope and in that respect, this story gives that. It leaves you hopeful for the future even if we don't get to see it.
