Dealing in What if's Only Ever Leads to Darkness 

This was such a sad and difficult read. I wanted to find out what would happen to all of these beloved characters. The story was dark and Lennon was faced with loss and despair unlike anything he’s ever experienced. Rain was his whole world and for a long time these two faced unimaginable pain. From the very beginning Lennon’s life gets put into sheer darkness. I was waiting for Jinx to appear and what her role would be in this story. At first I was so angry at Rain for her actions and the way she abandoned Lennon when he needed her most. Lennon comes a long way in this final installment and I was so proud of his development. The ending was spectacular and I can sincerely say everything played out leaving all the t’s crossed and i’s dotted.

ove, Lennon finally has everything he could ever want. A proposal is finally accepted making him the happiest man alive.
E-nsemble, Rain can’t help but keep her eyes on Lennon at all times there isn’t anyone else for her ever. She can’t wait to become his wife.
N-otorious, being a rock god comes with a lot of pressure and temptation but there will never be anyone for Lennon other than Rain.
N-aughty, in love and bliss these two love each other intensely, passionately, and it will never fade.
O-bligations, all Lennon wants to do is be by Rain’s side but she has shut him out not knowing how to deal with her pain she pushes him away.
N-arcotics, Lennon is tempted by the absence of pain and in the effort of trying to make it go away he creates more hurt. Mistakes and misunderstandings will be his undoing.
S-ins, Lennon will always care for Jinx but no matter what happens he will always only love one woman and thats Rain.

H-elp, Rain has been working on herself and it will take some pain before she realizes that she cannot be without Lennon. A tragic incident will put them in close proximity and Rain will do what it takes to make things right.
O-pen, helping Jinx get past her heart break is something that comes as second nature to Lennon. They both realize they would never work and the best part is Jinx finds her happiness.
P-romise, Lennon’s father has always disappointed him but sharing a painful secret will ignite the desire to forgive. In the end these two are much more similar than Lennon ever expected.
E-nding, the dreams Lennon and Rain shared come to fruition. Their road wasn’t easy but looking back the events in their lives that were painful only served to make them stronger and their union something truly beautiful.

The ending was spectacular and my girl Jinx was taken care of. So I’d say bravo! The road certainly wasn’t easy there is a lot of darkness and pain. Thankfully they pull through the difficult time together. Another great read by Myers this story definitely pulled at my heart strings. I experienced every emotion reading this final installment. The ending was sad but it was beautiful at the same time, the tears I shed were happy ones. Lennon has come a long way. Two young ones found each other and lost each other but in the end nothing could ever tear them apart. I really enjoyed the fact that Lennon was able to work on his relationship with his father. They found a common ground in the end. This was a very entertaining series full of drama and dark moments. Myers was able to bring everything to a lovely close tying up all the lose ends nicely.

My Rating
4.0 SUV, Tour, Gazebo, Hope, Clive, Brother, Cliff, Compound, World Tour, Jinx, Drugs, Media, Twins, Broken Heart, Stalker, Hearing, Texts, Tutor, Rehab, Counseling, Powerful Love, Undying Union Filled Stars! For those that enjoy drama and ups and downs. This series is for you.
