5.0 out of 5 stars heartfelt and powerful finale
Reviewed in the United States on July 6, 2021
Oh my heart- what a beautiful story- a story of hope and healing, forgiveness and understanding, of liberation. Lily and Mason completely captured my heart- hands down my favorite of the series. This series has been all about characters finding the courage to face the broken parts of themselves- making the invisible visible- an act of bravery made possible by the restorative potential of unconditional love- and there is no more heartfelt or moving articulation of that theme than in this series finale.

Ever since our first book, I’ve been curious about both Lily and Mason- the missing baby sister who by all counts is a tragedy, and the stoic and intimidating investigator tasked with hunting her down. Both are everything I wanted and more- hauntingly beautiful characters that moved me to my marrow.

Lily is EVERYTHING. What a beautifully heartbreaking and empowering character- the most compelling character of the entire series. Emily unveils her to us with such compassion and empathy. A survivor of such trauma and heartbreak, a fighter in every word, Lily is the heart and soul of this series- the epitome of every beautifully penned theme Emily has created. This is a woman who has every right to have crumbled completely, but she hasn’t- she’s clawed her way for survival day in and day out of love for her family, and a resolute stubbornness to not become her past. More so than any other character- Lily has been an enigma, misunderstood and unfairly characterized. But Emily proves yet again that all is not as it seems, that to truly understand someone’s heart you have to seek it- to listen, to understand, and after waiting so long to understand a character whose decisions have hurt so many, we see her heart. And it is BEAUTIFUL- heartbreaking, tormented, vibrant, and fragile. Her journey is everything I love about this series- her refusal to succumb to her pain, her vulnerability, her courage in facing her demons inspired by a life changing love, a girl embracing and learning to face her brokenness, not because it makes her weak, but it makes her human, and that makes her strong. Her redemption and healing- what a glorious thing to behold.

And Mason, he catalyzes her healing. Ironic, because their love begins with well-meaning manipulation, but manipulation nonetheless, and that hurts- because Lily is a character who has long been abused by the manipulations of men. But Emily gives Mason such depth- complexity, tenderness, thoughtfulness and care. He’s everything Lily needs- even if their connection is, well, complicated in more ways than one. I loved Mason so intensely- but most of all I love the way he loves Lily. The way he’s the safety net she needs to heal. He’s a beautiful contradiction- a rough and scary man that gives Lily the only safety she’s known. A man deceiving her who is somehow the most truthful thing in her life. They connect over their brokenness, find peace and acceptance in one another. The chemistry is delicious- but the way they communicate, the way they twine together emotionally- THAT Is what this series is all about, and this is the most captivating articulation of Emily’s ability to tie two souls together so remarkably.

I’m so glad I discovered this series and the beautiful resonance of Emily’s impassioned and raw writing. Being inside her characters’ heads is a unique and transfixing experience- she imbues them with such emotional transparency, a bleeding meta-vulnerability that makes her stories feel so intimate- and raw. We breathe their pain, we feel their heart beat. You can’t help but become emotionally consumed- but Lily and Mason are next level. And, like always, we have plenty of steam- here the steam playing a crucial and unusual role in healing- just be sure to check the trigger warnings. Engaging story, delicious steam, captivating character development, and a thematic undertone - she’s got it all.

The beautifully flawed and tragically broken characters have captured my heart completely, and this conclusion is a bittersweet goodbye. Mason and Lily find their happiness, but Emily also finds a way to perfectly bring everyone to close- because this story isn’t just about them finding their way to to each other, it’s also about this beautiful chosen family finally being whole again. About each of them finally finding the full happiness, because the missing piece of the puzzle has locked into place. Each gets a moment to shine, but in the end, it’s about their unity, their togetherness. The peace they all finally find- not because they are any less broken, but because they found themselves in their brokenness, and they found healing and safety at long last in each other. And my heart is so full.
