Published by: Lauren McKellar
The problem with heartache is that there’s no one-size-fits-all relief package. You can go to classes; you can try to embrace change. But when you wake up at two in the morning, a smile on your face because you’ve dreamt about the could have—the should have—nothing will console you.
Because seconds later, you remember.
And remembering can rip you apart
Kate will do anything for her family. It’s why she took the job with Lee. It’s why she’s attempting to forget her pain. But it’s hard to forget, when you’re desperate to hold on. Even if Lee Collins is the perfect package.
Lee will do anything for the ones he cares about. It’s why he hired Kate.
It’s why he keeps his secrets; and it’s why he cannot, will not fall in love. Not with Kate—not with anyone.
The one thing he can’t forgive.
The one thing she can’t forget.
Pretty much right after I finished the second one I bought the second and continued reading . If I remember correctly, I think I read this within the span of five days because I just couldn’t stop (it only took so long because I was working as well).
This was a good ending to a good series. I felt the closure when I finally finished this book. I loved that Lee got more of a focus in this book. He was a bit of a lesser character within the first two books, but I felt like he was more important than McKellar was letting on. In the end of The Problem With Crazy we see a glimpse of Lee probably being more important in Kate’s life than we originally imagined.
Lee and Kate’s relationship was explored very well within this book. McKellar gave us enough information to feel like we knew the characters better, but allowed us enough space to give the characters some traits ourselves, and allow us to put ourselves in the character more. Each one was relatable, and I found myself in every one of them.
The storyline wasn’t completely predictable, and she surprised me almost every time that I had figured out what was going to happen next, and what was behind a lot of their behaviors. The back stories behind the characters were explained thoroughly, but there were enough hints about certain parts about it that you figured some things out. However, just when you thought you had figured out everything, she threw something else in.
There is some medium-ish sexual content, drinking, and some sensitive topics so probably 16+.
5 out of 5 stars
