The Ex Games Pt. 3

Released: December 25th, 2013

The stunning conclusion to The Ex Games novella serial is here!

What other secret is Brandon hiding?

Seven years ago, Katie Raymond made a mistake that cost her the love of her life. Now, Brandon Hastings is back in her life and it seems like he is determined to make her pay for her previous mistakes.

When Katie overhears a private conversation, she has no idea just how deep the secrets go. She gives, Brandon one last chance to prove his love to her, but when he violates her trust one last time, she doesn't think she can ever forgive him.

But then, Brandon tells her the one thing that is guaranteed to turn her world upside down and she's not sure if her life will ever be the same again.
"And our relationship was perfect. You were perfect for me. I was perfect for you. We were perfect for each other. I knew that in my heart."

Since these two are super short novellas, I'm combining the reviews for the last two.

Pt. II
This part was slightly more disappointing than the first one. I was definitely excited about finding out more on their past but then it wasn't the memorable kind of story. 

The hero was still kind of a douchebag and the heroine more annoying here. But their connection was undeniable and that was what probably saved the story.
"Katie, I know something is wrong. I can see it in your eyes. Tell me what's wrong?"
But Brandon also has his sweet moments ;)

Now this part was just frustrating as hell. I was so disappointed with the ending despite it being most suspenseful towards the end but GOOOOD. The heroine, can you just not. Brandon was more okay in this book even though of course, he was practically bipolar. But Katie, oh my God.
"I'm done, you hear? I'm done. I can't take this anymore, Brandon."
Oh sure. That's what you said for the last 230482304th time when you left him. She keeps saying that she's done but yet she keeps getting yanked back to him. Sure, it's because they have a strong chemistry bla bla bla but come on, woman, don't you have some dignity? Get a fucking grip.

Brandon probably was the one that saved this book.
