I ruined everything.
Instead of telling Rose the truth, I kept everything to myself. Even though my intentions were good and I was just trying to help, I was in the wrong. Seeing the look on her face in that courtroom was unbearable.
Will she ever forgive me?
Could I blame her if she didn’t?
All I know is I love her. I can’t live without her. There’s an unbreakable connection between us that I can’t shake off.
I have to get her back.
After watching everything that Kyle has gone through in this series, through his relationship with Frankie and with his past dealing with his sister, we all really want him to find his happy ending. It seemed like it was possible with how things were evolving with Rose but then the truth about the case that he was working on came out in the worst way and she ran.
We start this final installment with Rose furious at Kyle for keeping his case a secret, but Kyle even admits that he was in a lose lose situation. that there was no way that he was ever going to come out in an ok place with this because Rose had so many walls up and even with the best intentions, those walls would always be up.
So what we get to watch in this seventh book is how Kyle tries everything to find his happiness. He goes to Frankie for advice – trying to figure out how to survive in a world where Rose doesn’t exist and the unexpected support and help from Hawke even makes things interesting. In this installment, we see how people have grown and matured and how that knowledge and life experience some how made it possible to go on in life.
Kyle tries everything and we see progress start to get made just to have it knocked down again. We see every angle attempted. His quest to make her feel secure, his attempt to make her jealous, the scheme to get Hawke to build a professional relationship that Kyle can take over. Most doesn’t work and it’s only an unexpected intervention that makes anything change. but as expected – that change doesn’t pan out as we hoped.
Rose spends much of this story with her walls up, with her fear taking hold all the time and a belief that she’s damaged and not good enough for anyone. She can’t believe that Kyle wants anything about her, and even when he professes it, she’s challenged to believe it. The emotions that she feels for him scare her and she’s even more afraid of intimacy with him.
So you can only guess how this whole roller coaster will play out. Who will get involved to make things happen and who will come out of the wood work to pick up the pieces when life doesn’t work out the way that we want. We at least get a lovely wedding in this story (yup – someone gets married) and we see additions to the next generation (yup lots of babies too). I hope you guys have picked up this series and enjoyed it since i did – and i’m sad to see it go. oh well…on to the next. Enjoy!
