My Review
Description from Publisher:
It’s been thirteen years since Hope Moore left Devil’s Falls, land of sexy cowboys and bad memories. Back for the weekend, she has no intention of seeing the man she never got over…or the two of them getting down and dirty. It’s just a belated goodbye, right? No harm, no foul.

Until six weeks later, when her pregnancy test comes back positive…

Daniel Rodriguez hasn’t forgiven himself for how things went down with Hope all those years ago. He knows she’s better off without him, but when she shows up on his doorstep, panicking because she’s pregnant with his baby, he can’t help seeing it as a chance to make up for the past.

Too bad Hope has no intention of going along with his plans.

My Musings:
This was so fast-paced it practically flew by!

In this, the final(?) book of the Devil Falls series, we get Daniel and Hope's story, which has been teased in the previous books. Daniel was driving the car that rolled and killed his best friend and permanently injured his girlfriend 13 years before, and has been a shell of himself since. Hope has moved on and made a life for herself, but finds herself coming back to Devil Falls to set up a scholarship for her deceased brother.

This book really takes off with a bang and keeps going. Daniel and Hope give into their desires and find themselves in a difficult situation - Hope winds up pregnant.

Daniel coming back to life was nice to watch, and Hope was likeable enough. They absolutely had some sizzling chemistry, but I feel like there was a depth missing and I wish we had gotten more renewed bonding between the two that wasn't mostly just sexual. Daniel was cocky and the two of them basically just had a lot of (super hot) sex, never really talking like they should have. Hope has a scar and a bum knee as a result of their car accident and that added an interesting layer to everything, but I feel like we barely scratched the surface with their issues.

I also just couldn't stand Hope's mother, who always seemed incredibly self-righteous and judgmental. I didn't necessarily disagree with the things that she said, but something about her attitude put me off.

The ending of this feels almost too fast and like it came too easily. Most of the issues Hope and Daniel had don't necessarily feel as though they are resolved... I had hoped there would be an epilogue that wrapped it all up, but there wasn't...

This is still a solid story and I did enjoy it, but it wasn't my favorite Katee Robert book.

About the Author: Katee Robert
Katee Robert learned to tell stories at her grandpa’s knee. Her favorites then were the rather epic adventures of The Three Bears, but at age twelve she discovered romance novels and never looked back.

Though she dabbled in writing, life got in the way—as it often does—and she spent a few years traveling, living in both Philadelphia and Germany. In between traveling and raising her two wee ones, she had the crazy idea that she’d like to write a book and try to get published.

Her first novel was an epic fantasy that, God willing, will never see the light of day. From there, she dabbled in YA and horror, before finally finding speculative romance. Because, really, who wouldn’t want to write entire books about the smoking-hot relationships between two people?

She now spends her time—when not lost in Far Reach worlds—playing imaginary games with her wee ones, writing, ogling men, and planning for the inevitable zombie apocalypse.
