Bring Me Home #REVIEW

Bring Me Home (Shattered Hearts #3) by Cassia Leo ROCKED my WORLD. The breath-taking conclusion to the New York Times and USA Today bestselling series just released August 6, 2013 and amazingly topped both of the other fantastic books in the trilogy.

"Sometimes letting someone go is the ultimate act of love."

Claire Nixon is a college student with a past full of secrets and heartbreak. She was saved once by her first love, and rock star, Chris Knight. But when she encouraged Chris to leave town to pursue his dreams, both Claire and Chris didn’t realize it would be the biggest mistake of their lives.

After a devastating year apart and thousands of miles of distance between them, Claire met sexy surfer Adam Parker. With his awful jokes and profound patience, he helped Claire pick up the shattered pieces of her broken heart for the second time.

But now Chris has returned and he is willing and determined to make Claire’s dreams come true—the same way she did for him when she let him go.

With Adam’s former girlfriend in the picture, Claire finds herself torn between the new, passionate love she shares with Adam and the love and family she shares with Chris.

Bring Me Home took everything in the series and brought it all to the perfect ending... if the perfect ending is real and not a fairy tale. Not everything can be just the way you hope. You make mistakes but then you move forward. That's the message Cassia Leo sends through Claire. Readers see her grow into a strong woman who knows her heart. It was a beautiful thing to watch.

I cried and smiled and was charmed by the characters - even the secondary characters who added dimension. There wasn't as much drama with the love triangle since that decision was made early in the book. Readers then got to focus on the evolution of the final relationship and see it to its conclusion. There were just moments where the resolution felt so very right and you wondered how you had ever thought she could be happy with the other choice.

KEEPING THIS SPOILER FREE IS DIFFICULT so let me just say that this book secured the series as one of my favorite New Adult series. This was a fantastic summer read by the pool... just be prepared to stay up late reading because once you start book one, you won't want to stop until you finish book three!

Cassia Leo is a talented storyteller. I'll be checking out the other books she's written.
