Cat Crawford just wants to be normal—or at least as normal as a daughter of Hollywood royalty can be. And it looks like fate is granting her wish: she’s got an amazing boyfriend, Lucas; her fabulous cousin, Alessandra, living with her; and her dad planning his second marriage to a great future stepmom. That is, until her prodigal mother reveals on national television that she has something important to tell her daughter…causing a media frenzy.
Lucas Capelli knows his fate is to be with Cat, and he’s worked hard to win her over once and for all. Unfortunately, Lucas has his own issues to deal with, including a scandal that could take him away from the first place he’s truly belonged.
As secrets are revealed, rumors explode, and the world watches, Cat and Lucas discover it’s not fate they have to fight if they want to stay together…this time, it’s their own insecurities.
Well, and the stalkerazzi.
Special thanks to Entangled Teen for giving my grabby hands a copy of this gorgeous read before it was released! I just finished reading it and it is to die for! This story was a wonderful wrap up for Cat and Lucas and I'm still drying my happy tears guys.
The cover is to die for. Cat and Lucas are so...them. Well, except for the dress, 'cause we all know that Cat doesn't normally do dresses like but...oh, you'll see. The models are wonderful for the cover except I still see Lucas as a baby-face. *shrug*
We start right where the other stories left off. This goes over the main plots of the first two books so you get the general idea, but I'm really glad that I read the other two books first. I think that Rachel Harris does an amazeballs job at showing how Cat and Lucas interact with each other, but the previous story lines add so much more to them, in my humble opinion.
Cat has mama drama. Lucas has papa problems. Together they find their home away from home, free of stalkerazzi, drama and all the chaos that seems to follow her mother's wake. I was seriously blindsided by Cat's mom's secret surprises - I'm still reeling - and I totally feel for Cat. I'm just like her when it comes to trusting people, and letting them in...I aligned with her feelings so hard and I think that's part of the reason why I loved this book so hard.
I laughed, I cried, I swooned, oh boy did I ever swoon. Lucas made my tummy do flips, my heart started beating all cray like and man...don't tell my wife...
I've noticed that for many books I usually have a stare-down with the page/screen. A lot of times I don't agree with some of the main characters for acting in a certain way. (Those are the times I fling the book or gently close the cover of my iPad and then scream "WWHHYYYYY.")
That didn't happen during this book. I was so caught up in Cat and Lucas, with Less and Austin, Jenna and Dad, er, Peter, and Caterina that I just flew through the words. Rachel Harris' writing is infectious and I was wrapped up and I loved every minute of it.
Today is the release day - please grab a copy of this if you liked the first two books! It'll be well worth it!
