***I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review!***
This book was a special treat from the author because those who have read The Club and fell in love with Jonas and Sarah wanted more. This book was definitely more and then some. It was, aptly titled, the culmination of the greatest love story.
This book takes place a couple years after Jonas and Sarah get married. They are happily living life together, experiencing all the love and joy that life has to offer them. We learn more about their journey to a love that is the envy of the gods. The good, the bad, and the ugly. Yet, no matter what comes their way, these two have a way of defying the odds.
Let me start by saying that this book is brilliant. It contains even more of the things that I loved about The Club Trilogy-the witticisms, sarcasm, and hilarity that is Sarah effing Cruz; the wise, sex starved, kinky and vulnerable Jonas Faraday; even Kat, Josh and Henn who add their own brand of crazy to the story. I love how powerful words can be, and this story is such a beautiful example of the power of words. How they can make us laugh, cry, fall apart, be renewed and fall in love all over again. How our words can wound or heal, build up or tear down. The words in this book are often poetic, and then in the next sentence completely hysterical. That is one thing I love about this author's writing style.
Jonas has lived his life by his boy Plato's sayings, and Sarah is the perfect muse for his gut-busting Hallmark worthy greeting card phrases. For him, Sarah is everything. She is the universe! The air he breathes! The balm for his tortured soul! Without her, he doesn't feel life is worth living. Sarah is just as devoted to Jonas as he is to her. He pushes her to greater heights of passion and pleasure. Gives her confidence and a sense of stability. Protects her heart and soul. Teaches her what it means to love and trust. Theirs is a truly magnificent story that you never want to see end.
I loved the new scenes in this story. Some of them brought tears to my eyes from laughing so hard, and some brought tears to my eyes because they were incredibly heartbreaking. We get a new perspective about the depth of Jonas' feelings for his wife. Think the bathroom scene at U Dub but more intense. I can't say more without giving away spoilers. We also see something that I never thought we would-a completely out of control Sarah that will surprise the pants off of you. That scene definitely threw me for a loop since she is usually the level-headed one.
Other scenes made my glasses fog up they were so steamy. When I say that Jonas is kinky, I mean kinky to a new degree. While most of the sex scenes were enjoyable, there were a small few that were just too much for me. One thing in particular that grossed me out. I've only read about it in one other book, and I had the same reaction then. Luckily, it was a small part of the story. Most of the time I was wishing for my own woman wizard, and hoping he would climb my own Mount Everest.
Jonas is definitely one of my top book boyfriends of all time, and Sarah one of my all time favorite heroines! I was incredibly happy to read this book, and I am so grateful to the author for writing more of their story. Just when you think you can't love someone any more than you do, your heart expands to a new degree and the love keeps on growing. This book is the perfect example of how one event in our lives can propel our world into a new and amazing direction. One we could never imagine wanting, but one that we need.
This is a must read book and series! I cannot recommend it enough! I am a huge fan of the author, and she is one of my "just click it" authors. I am so excited to read Josh and Kat's story out later this year.
