*ARC provided for blog tour review* For your next fix: http://www.pageturningbookjunkie.blog...[image error]Wowza...this was the perfect ending to this trilogy! The first two books (Smoke and Fire) set up the emotional impact of all of Sebastian and Claire's demons flawlessly, so that the eventual crash was explosive. They had already aired out their dirty laundry and throughout the first books, but you clearly feel the waft of Claire's demons still hovering around, waiting to claim her when the time comes. Thanks to that alluring temptress S.D. Mary, we were left dangling from a huge ass cliff after the second book. Thankfully I read the first two books right before I received the third book to read for the blog tour, so I didn't spend too much time stressing on the edge of my seat. This last installment was emotional, explosive, and enticing. My Kindle was glued to my fingers until I was finished. "As expected, we burned in flames and transformed into ashes at the end of one unfortunate day."Everything was going so damn amazing for Sebastian and Claire towards the end of book two...so of course someone has to come along and eff it up for them. Sebastian effortlessly slipped on his shining armor and quite literally took a bullet for Claire after she was attacked by her ex's deranged wife. After all the worry was put to rest and Sebastian woke up, they had another whole effed up situation to battle against...Sebastian couldn't remember Claire or a whole 15 year chunk of his life. If that wasn't enough, the last memory he had was getting ready to marry that harlot Nicole. Did Nicole woman up and do the right thing and set him straight...hell no she didn't! She took full advantage of the situation and slithered her devious way right in. Fortunately Sebastian could almost immediately feel the unease of the whole situation. He was completely turned off by her, which made me do my happy dance. Despite the fact that he still couldn't remember Claire, he was haunted by her image and presence. Sebastian dreamt of Claire, which he was sure were not mere dreams, but memories of their life together. "By the time I arrived at my apartment I was determined to make Claire mine again. We had chemistry, that much was obvious. Even without me remembering, I felt drawn to her. I wondered how she tasted, how would she scream when I entered her, how she would melt in my arms beneath my kisses."The feelings provoked in Sebastian by the ever growing blind allure of Claire was beginning to consume him. He was determined to get her back somehow. Certain events happen that eventually bring them together and it would seemed he would get his chance to have her back in his life. He also began to remember certain things from the chunk of time lost to him, but Claire was the last piece of the puzzle that he still needed to complete. Claire refused to let herself give in completely, because she didn't want the semblance of love that she believed he felt for her now....she wanted the passionate and all consuming love they used to share. She also couldn't believe his feeling were genuine, when he didn't know about all her past demons. Claire felt that Sebastian was in love with a different seemingly put together Claire, not the real and flawed Claire. Ahhh....talk about frustration. Her battle within herself was more painful to endure then Sebastian's struggle with his memories. "Remembering her was not needed, my body craved her, my mind wanted to know her. Somehow I was happy I would get that chance. My mind was in the right place, even if my brain couldn't recognize her. She was mine and I was hers. She would know this now."The fight they endured to get back the love that they both desperately craved, was a tough thing in itself, but the impending shit storm that was brewing finally made its appearance and was dead set on destruction. Can their eternal love survive after all they have endured. Do they have enough fight left in the end? Will Mr. King be able to dub that armor again to become that knight that Claire depends on? Could love be enough this time around, or is the damage done be beyond repair? It seems like they are always in a contestant state of agony...always fighting for that happily ever after. To say it was emotionally draining, would be an understatement, but I wouldn't have it any other way. "I feel his arms surrounding me, I feel his breath caressing me. I feel his love filling me up to the point of no return. This is the point of no return, this is beyond our life, a cosmic love that takes all and gives all."I have to admit, I was flirting with a love/hate relationship during this read. Those are the kinds of books I love though...the emotional struggle pays off in the end, despite the occasional screams of frustration. The build up from the first two books really amplified all the emotional turmoil in the conclusion to this trilogy. The author does an amazing job and building a deep connection to the characters. You really feel every intense emotion that was thrust upon them as a couple and as individuals. Sebastian's unwavering determination just upped his level of hotness in this one...uncontrollable swoon alert! I would definitely recommend this entire series to my fellow readers. Be sure to scoop all three of these books up. You will devour them all in one sitting!5 out of 5 Emotionally Gripping, Passion-filled Stars!Find me at: http://www.facebook.com/pageturningbo...Blog: http://www.pageturningbookjunkie.blog...
I was gifted this book in exchange for a honest review. When I first read this book I was nervous. I knew this was the last book in the trilogy and didn't want to rush it. Yeah right!!! Let me tell you Ms. Mary did not disappoint. It picks up right where we left off in "Fire". I was dangling by a thread with that cliffhanger. My heart was aching for Claire and Sebastian. I felt so committed to seeing these two characters through the book. They shattered my hear throughout this book. I was sending messages to Ms. Mary asking "Why?" (probably drove her a bit nuts). There are twist and turns with Claire and Sebastian, things I did not see coming. The book title is spot on. Where in "Fire" is was crazy passion this book is the "Ashes" left from the passion. Could they pick up the charred pieces of their love?? I kept asking throughout the book. Claire is a survivor, fighter but she is also emotional, an addict and a woman. I love characters that have this amount of depth. I see them as real people who struggle and I can associate with their pain. It's not, oh I have have 15 pairs of Jimmy Choo's what do I wear. Claire deals with some painstaking things. I cried for her in this book. Sebastian...oh Sebastian. I wanted to squeeze him, shake him, kiss him, hug him, yell at him and sooth him. Sebastian has to deal with some physical set backs. I really was patient with him but I found myself clenching my teeth with some of that stuff. I may have thrown my ipad at one particular point and had trouble sleeping that night (sorry Ms. Mary you know what part). I kept saying "That did not just happen" out loud.I love books that make me feel emotion in the pit of my stomach. Even if its a heartache. I love the fantasy of books, happy endings but the journey to get there has to be good too. This book delivers that. I felt shattered at times and loved this entire trilogy. There are tons of love, and "Fire" between Claire and Sebastian. I found myself cheering for this two to get their acts together and just love one another to the fullest. When these two get together physically...they sizzle and you can feel your temperature rising.There is the matter of two other characters in this book (cough cough Anna & Jack) but one can hope for maybe another book...perhaps novella? I won't be too greedy. Fabulous book and fantastic series. Great read and you have to read all three books in order to have complete Claire and Sebastian story.
As always, I'll give my book 5 stars. It's only human to love your own creation, flawed and imperfect as they are. I am rather sad this series is about to end so, if you get the chance to read it, please leave a review.
