Publisher's Summary

My life is in ruins. Failed marriage, failed career - I'm a failure.

My husband may have had a hand in it, but I can't help missing him.

We made an agreement. I signed the contract, and so did he. Without our arrangement, everything falls apart.

So we'll keep losing ourselves in each other's bodies.

We'll keep pretending everything is fine.

But maybe I'm getting sick of pretend.

Maybe I want to find something real.

And just maybe, Luka does too.

Book three of three.

Too much angst

I have conflicted feelings over this series. I don’t mind a bit of angst but this series was over the top. If the writing wasn’t good I’m not sure if I would have lasted until the end. In real life no one would survive a relationship with so little trust and no communication. Even after finally sorting through their problems more than half way through the third book, Brooklyn still does a runner. Lots of steam, but it’s a frustrating and predictable read.

Uneven

I found this series uneven compared to the first series in this world. Brooklyn and Luca, I felt their characters were a good fit, however Luca would sneeze funny and all of a sudden Brooklyn has talked herself into that meaning he's having an affair. It was very much, they get together, she pulls them apart, over and over. This was frustrating on the listener.
I did very enjoy the narration by Sebastian York and Elena Wolfe very much.

FIVE STAR FIREWORKS, FRICTION & FEELS

This arranged marriage really was a rollercoaster as hurt feelings, blurred lines, misunderstandings, secrets, misdirection, the lack of communication and outside forces all play a part in a marriage which was only meant to be fake. However, when chemistry, lust, compatibility, emotions, compassion and sexcapades obliterate the carefully constructed walls and battle lines, it causes a lot of rubble to plough through before the light of the HEA can finally be seen. And I must admit that, by the end of book two, I wanted to send both of them to the naughty step for timeout from all the bad behaviour, angst and drama.. and angst.. and angst. However, it was a great ride, if a wee bit predictable at times, but still really enjoyable nonetheless. And the dual POV storyline was brought to life perfectly by Elena and Sebastian.. two trusted well loved A list narrators who give awesome performances with feels and flavor every.. single.. time.

Worth a credit? I waited til all three books in the trilogy were out because I knew going in that this was going to be an addictive rollercoaster rocky romance - which it definitely was.. and yes, the other two books are (IMO) creditworthy.

Great Conclusion

I have to say I was not thrilled about book 2 but am really glad I continued with the series.

Enjoyed the series overall

I really enjoyed the 1st book and couldn't wait to start the 2nd. However partially through book 2, I was frustrated with Brooklyn's whining and their lack of communication. These are educated intelligent people.

It took me a while to get through book 3

Amazing start to the series.

This is the finale for the Convenience Trilogy, where we get Luca and Brooklyn´s story, this conclusion couldn't have been more perfect for this couple. The rollercoaster of emotions and twist and turns we get thought the series wraps it all up in this book. We get to see how each character has grown individually as well as in the relationship, I definitely suggest these books for anyone looking for an arranged marriage with a celebrity throw-in. I love the dual perspectives to really get what is going on with both main character's minds. The audiobooks are fantastic, I love the narrations made by the fantastic Elena Wolfe and Sebastian York, you can never go wrong with this duo.

Epic finale!

Absolute great ending to this trilogy. Everything ended with a HEA, for Lucas, Brooklyn and Mr Kibble. Sebastian York and Elena Wolfe were perfection. Love them as a duel narrator combo.

Not for me

I tried sooo hard to like this series. It’s because I attempt to give them a chance that I almost always listen to an entire series before reviewing, in the hope that it’ll improve. The narration on this was great!! Sadly, I could not enjoy Brooklyn’s character. Not only as a woman but just a person in general. Grow a backbone! Stick to your decisions when you make them. There was just so much wrong with her mentality and thought process, I could go on and on but why... sadly disappointed.
