Series: North Security #3
Who is Samantha Brooks without her violin? Fear lives in the silent spaces. Love does, too. There’s a battle being waged in her heart, and Liam North is determined to win. He’ll use every weapon in his arsenal. His body. His heart. Except the spotlight puts her in the crosshairs of dangerous men.
Samantha fights to compose her own ending, even as the final notes rise to a heartbreaking crescendo.
We needed to have this final installment to see how the story not only continued but completed. There’s so much uncertainty in the relationship between Samantha and Liam, as well as in her future as a musician and on top of that, there’s chaos around her father and his motives. We left them with Samantha giving up the violin and going on the run essentially with Liam and we don’t know what that means.
Throughout this final installment we see a few things happen. We see Samantha grow up. you have to remember that she’s only 18, so she’s really not very experienced with the world even though she had quite the untraditional upbringing. When she’s faced with suitors other than Liam and she’s not sure how to read those situations or the motives behind actions, we are once again reminded of Liam’s need and the rationale behind his need to protect her.
Bethany comes back into the fold in this story and we see the bond that she creates with Samantha. It’s a good set up to see what will happen in her own story since she’s about due one. We watch how Samantha’s relationship with the man who’s now backing a new tour that she’ll headline changes the dynamic of the entire story and all the characters within.
The question continues to rise, whether she’s good enough to headline, whether she’s strong enough to risk her life and Liam’s life to go back on stage and what that means in general. She has passion on top of passion for not only music but for her relationship with Liam, and we watch all of that play out in a deep and angsty way.
So on that note, we get a resolution that does this story justice – of course with a lot of tension, fear, and lies. But regardless, it was worthy of this series finale. So, on that note – enjoy!
