Product Description

'Romantic and heart-wrenching' The climax of River and Flynn's story.
After months apart, everyone thinks that River is successfully building a future without Flynn. She has even almost convinced herself that she is moving on.
And then, one day, Flynn is back, bringing with him tales of his glamorous new life.
Will River let herself be drawn back into Flynn's world? Or is this, finally, the end of the line for them both?

Originally reviewed on Serendipity Reviews.

Seriously? Did this series have to end this way????

My heart is broken, shattered into a million pieces and now stamped into tiny molecules by everyone who has walked past me – that’s how I feel after reaching the end of this series! I loved Flynn and River. I loved their tempestuous, explosive relationship. As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve known a Flynn in my past, so this series has always hit home with me. So the ending was a bit of a shock. The epilogue left me in tears.

I know, I shouldn’t be surprised, as the series has always been so closely linked to Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. It was laid out for me, right from the start, and an undercurrent has weaved it’s way throughout the series. However, I still wasn’t prepared for the ending.

This has been one of the best YA contemporary romance series I have ever read. The intensity of the relationship between Flynn and River could be used to support a guide to dealing with teenage romance. These two were meant for each other, no matter how hard they tried to escape from it, destiny always drew them back to each other. Others saw it as destructive, I saw it as undying, eternal love. Sigh.

I want to return to the epilogue which I mentioned above. There was something about it that made me wonder if the author had experienced a relationship similar to this in her past. Perhaps it is the journey that River’s life takes in the following years that gave me the idea. I have always believed that to write about something so passionately, you have to have experienced it to some degree.

I do have a little niggle about this book. The cover. That isn’t Flynn on it! How do I know this? Flynn has dark, longish hair. If you don’t believe me, read on.

5.0 out of 5 stars Defy the stars, kindle version 10 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book was excellent and i really enjoyed and it fulfilled everything i wanted it to be.
However there were some words that changed, and i don't know if it was because it was on the app on my phone or what. eg chatting was changed to 'charting', but overall brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Defy the stars 29 Dec. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really liked this series but I was rather upset when Flynn was murdered. I would of liked to have seen more of Flynn and River and the intensity of their love. The books ending is extremely sad and I wanted to cry. I was really intrigued by the language used in this series in particular series. Sophie McKenzie is an amazing author and I really hope to hear more from her, I have read this book many times and I am going to continue reading this book over and over again, I recommended this series to my best friend and she loved it. She was also upset by the pain of River and Flynns romantic life. This book was in someway not as good as the other book in this series. But much more exciting.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was brilliant, for anyone who would have read this without the previous stories its brilliant but it was a thrilling and heart wrenching conclusion to those who have followed River and Flynn's story from beginning to end.
Sophie writes in a way that draws you into these characters and their lives, sh is able to take you on a journey with these characters and by the end its like you know them personally, i couldn't put this book down!!

Again finally a brilliant conclusion to an amazing series of books... well worth a read!!
