Isis Blake hasn’t fallen in love in three years, forty-three weeks, and two days. Or so she thinks.
The boy she maybe-sort-of-definitely loved and sort-of-maybe-definitely hated has dropped off the face of the planet in the face of tragedy, leaving a Jack Hunter–shaped hole. Determined to be happy, Isis fills it in with lies and puts on a brave smile for her new life at Ohio State University.
But the smile lasts only until he shows up. The menace from her past—her darkest secret, Nameless—is attending OSU right alongside her. And he’s whispering that he has something Isis wants—something she needs to see to move forward. To move on.
Isis has always been able to pretend everything is okay. But not anymore.
Isis Blake might be good at putting herself back together.
But Jack Hunter is better.
Isis Blake is off to college. She’s trying to forget all about Jack Hunter who has disappeared. She pretends everything is ok. Until she finds out Nameless is going to college there as well. Jack comes back into the picture as he poses as a college student trying to find information on Nameless that will put him away. Jack tries to ignore his attraction to Isis but it’s hard. Isis tries to lose herself in partying and drinking but still, she can’t forget. Will the two put aside their differences and come together?
In an Oyster Shell – A thrilling finale to the series.
The Pearls – The humor in this book is unprecedented. Isis makes a lot of jokes as joking is her defense mechanism. They are really funny. Jack see’s it for what it is. Yet, it still makes for a humorous read.
The POV is done from both Isis and Jacks side. That helps because if we didn’t have Jack’s POV it would be hard to tell what he is thinking. He is a hard character to read when seen from Isis’s POV. So both POVs are appreciated.
The romance has been teased all throughout the series and it finally comes to a conclusion. It’s satisfying and worth waiting for. The book should be read with the series I don’t think this would work as a standalone. There is too much information in the other books. I’m afraid the reader would get lost if they are just picking up this book.
The Sand – It was a good book.
