I would recommend reading the first two books although each book can be read as a standalone. You get to know some of the other characters.
I knew Lance’s story was not going to be an easy one and knew I would not get through it without tears. I will do this review spoiler free I do not want to give anything away.
Alice comes back into Lance’s life after years she finds him a bitter and angry man. I really like Alice such a great character.
If you have read previous books, you will already know a little about Lance he is in a wheel chair and hates the world and his life he just wants to die. That is until Alice walks into his life at first he pushes her away. Then he promises her 3 days he says he will do things he has not done in years.
However, what he does not expect is to have feelings for her. I really enjoyed this story and I loved Lance.
It is a beautiful, heartbreaking story.
As normal Dori writing is flawless, you start and just have to keep reading until you are at the end of the book.

Oh my gosh! I am still in a little bit of shock as I finish reading, and truly loving, LaClaire Kiss. Lance LaClaire, twin brother of Bryant, has had a tough life since he was pushed off a wall and ended up a paraplegic. There is a sad story behind his fall that involves Bryant. He and Bryant fell in love with the same woman but it ended horribly for both. Lance has become a bitter, angry and solitary man who now lives his pathetic life in a wheelchair. Hating to live his life this way, he tries to commit suicide and drinks too much. The combination of the depression, physical pain and all-consuming anger leads to his present residence in the Crystal Lake Residential Rehab Facility. He has a medical doctor, Dr. Drew, and physical therapy that he hates intensely. It reminds him of what he was able to do and his emotional being simply shuts down at the prospect of trying to do those activities again. He used to be a renowned painter whose works were called masterpieces and hung in art galleries around the world. Before his accident, "dancing with water" used to be his passion. He enjoyed all sorts of water sports...anything to feel the water around him. Just when his depression couldn't get much worse, Alice Dupuis comes to see him at Crystal Lake. She is the sister of the woman both he and his brother, Bryant, loved. Alice has brought a DVD that she had promised her sister (Audrey) that she would deliver to Lance. What she tells him on that DVD shifts a little part of his heart. Since she first walked through his door at the rehab center, Lance realized just how beautiful Alice is and how unlike Audrey. Alice was blessed with a good heart, the ability to care for others and the joy of happiness on her face. Lance treats her to some of the finer things in Cabo and starts to enjoy going out in public with her. The story follows this trajectory with both of them bringing more true feelings to and for the other. Alice has helped to "cure" him as much as possible and, after a lot of work and effort on his part, he has become a new man. They both are able to live life with a brand new outlook, finding comfort together. Marriage, pregnancy...can it get much better? Oh, no!! Really?? What a change of course and Dori does it so beautifully. Some things just weren't entirely as they seemed! This is where the reader will feel overwhelming grief yet deep love. Dori Lavelle has written a gift of a book and I will be thinking about it for a long time to come.
LaClaire Kiss now delves into Lance's hopelessness,despair and the emptiness he experiences on a daily basis. He feels less than a man since his accident. He sees a black bleak future for himself.
He lives as a recluse in Mexico. He barely takes phonecalls from his brothers.
His daily regime now includes losing himself in liquer and pills. There is always a bottle in his hands or nearby. His sadness and grief has consumed every cell in his body.
When a choice he makes lands him in the hospital has someone from his past comes barreling into his life.
When Alice Dupuis learns that Lance is in the hospital she needs to deliver a message that she's been dreading to do for the past two years. She no longer can put it off,so she flies from Paris to Mexico to see Lance. When she's allowed to sees him in the hospital he's a shell of the man she saw twelve years prior. She heartbroken.
Delivering the message she's been dreading to do sets things in motion for both of them.
Neither one ever imagined the ripple effect that message would lead to.
Secrets will be revealed and choices will be questioned.
"Somtimes,one simple decision can change the entire course of a person's life." (Lance)
I don't want to give any spoilers away so I'll leave it at that.
LaClaire Kiss is beautifully written.
It's an emotional read. It's heartbreaking and heartwarming. It's filled with bleakness yet there's a ray of sunshine trying to break through. It's very sad but happiness might be found in the most unlikely of people.
The ending is phenomenal!
I was tore with how it went but after reflecting on it,it couldn't be anything else.
Ms. Lavelle is one of my favorite authors.
Her writing and plots are exceptional!
With her always expect a twist and/or turn that absolutely is always mind blowing!
If you've read the previous two books than it goes without saying that LaClaire Kiss is a must read!
If your a fan of Ms. Lavelle this is a must read.
If you love a beautiful bittersweet love story this is a must read!
I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy
Truly a fantastic read, and quite a tearjerker.
Lance thought his life was over, and he lead a very lonely, and angry life. After finding himself stowed away keeping himself hid from everyone after trying to solve his problems on his own, he gets a visitor from the past.
Alice was determined to reach Lance, and prove to him there was more to life, more to live for. After several attempts at trying to reject his own desires Lance gives in finding that he had emotions locked deep inside he didn't know he could feel again.
This romantic, sweet, beautiful, love story that stemmed from tragedy pulled at my heartstrings. I was captured by the progression of their journey.
The ending literally took my breath away. I shed tears. I will not say why, but this book is one not to be missed in the LaClaire series. I can't wait to see what's next for this author, and what she has in store for us.
I voluntarily read an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
