- REVIEW: 5 STARS -
The Key West Series is the 3rd series by CA Harms that I’ve read from the very beginning. As much as I highly anticipated Jude’s book, I was sad to see yet another fantastic series come to an end. Talk about a bitter-sweet moment! Once I dove into Undeniable, I couldn’t stop reading. I didn’t want to either, but at the same time, I hated that the more I turned the pages, the closer “The End” got.
“Callie was my reasoning; she was my balance. Whenever she was near, things just felt like they were as they should be.”
Throughout the previous installments, we got to meet Jude. He was this mysterious character that had me incredibly intrigued. I wanted to know his story. I wanted answers to my questions. Why would he suddenly leave? Why would he show up to work with bruises? Why did he end up in the hospital?
CA Harms did NOT disappoint. Jude’s story was emotional, beautiful, and sexy all in one. The amount of heartbreak he went through in this book had me in tears more than once. Thank gosh he had Callie and the rest of the characters we’ve come to know and love. They were his support system, his family.
“Callie was changing something inside me. She was giving me something I needed, yet had no idea just how much until then. She gave me hope that even in all the impending darkness of my life, there was still good. Callie was my light.”
It wasn’t an easy start for Callie and Jude. Nope. Jude, despite WANTING TO, he would NOT let Callie in. I understood his reasons entirely, but at the same time I felt horrible for Callie. He was quite stubborn and rude at times. Yikes! But don’t you worry. While CA Harms will most likely break your heart A LOT during this book, she mends it back together by the end.
Once things started to settle down for Jude and Callie, I felt like I could breathe while reading. I was so antsy during a HUGE chunk of this book because I knew what had to happen, so I was nervous to see Jude’s reaction. Rest assured, all the heartache is worth it.
“The end. How the fuck do you prepare for something like that?”
I absolutely LOVED reading more about the other characters in this series. This was a huge plus for me. They really made everything feel whole. It was such a fantastic ending, too! It all came full circle and I, as a reader, could not have asked for more. CA Harms truly nailed it. It was quite the perfect ending to a phenomenal series that I HIGHLY recommend to everyone! FIVE STARS!
- TEASERS -
- EXCERPT -“Hello.” I froze as Jude’s voice carried up the stairway, then jumped up from my position on the floor in our bedroom and scrambled for the door. Before I opened it, I turned back to face the kids, who were playing tug-of-war with the unnamed puppy.
“Stay here.” They both nodded, and I slipped out of the room, closing the door behind me. Jude had just reached the top of the steps, and he looked up with a smile.
“Where are the kids?”
“They’re playing in our room,” I said as I approached him.
“What’s wrong?” he asked.
“Nothing,” I assured him as I continued to walk. He cocked an eyebrow at me, and my stomach dropped. He was seeing right through me. I was such a bad liar.
“The kids are busy. Wanna sneak downstairs and have a quickie?” I wagged my eyebrows, but his facial expression did not change in the slightest.
“Now I know you’re full of shit. You’re actually attempting to distract me with sex,” he said with a grin. I was just about to argue when the puppy barked.
“What was that?” he asked.
My stomach was flipping around anxiously, and I didn’t even get to figure out a way to break the news before everything broke loose. The bedroom door came open behind me, and I heard the puppy’s claws tapping against the hardwood floor as Zoey and Matthew followed him. Squealing and laughter filled the hallway as I remained locked in place. I avoided looking at Jude. In fact, I stared down the floor instead.
“Are those my boxers?” Jude asked, and I looked up. He was pointing at the puppy, who was sitting back on his butt looking up at Jude. Hanging from his mouth were a red pair of Jude’s Calvin Klein boxers I had just purchased last week.
“Warrior likes to play tug-of-war with them,”
Matthew announced as he pulled on the other end of the red material.
“See, you just hook your hand through this handle, and he pulls back.”
Matthew slipped his little hand through the front opening in the boxers.
“His name is not Warrior,” Zoey argued.
“We still have to draw for his name, remember? Callie said so.”
I could feel Jude’s eyes boring in to me. I knew he was waiting for me to look up, but I was avoiding eye contact.
“What do you think we should name him, Uncle Jude?” Matthew asked.
“I like Warrior, but Zoey said Buddy or Charlie. I don’t like those.”
The kids began to argue over the name of our new puppy, and of course I continued to keep my head down as my heart raced with the idea that Jude may be angry.
“Callie,” Jude said, and my stomach lurched. He didn’t sound mad, yet he didn’t sound happy, either. Silence set in, and I knew all eyes were on me. I took in a deep breath and closed my eyes tightly.
“I never should have let them convince me to go into the pet store, but before I knew what hit me, they were laughing and playing with this cute little guy.”
I looked up and found Jude staring back at me, an unreadable expression on his face. “They ganged up on me, and they gave me that look. You know the one.”
t was then I noticed the smile tugging at his lips. “Are you ever going to be able to tell them no?”
Jude asked as he stepped around the puppy. I shook my head. I knew the moment they turned on me and gave me those big, sad eyes, I was putty in their hands. I was unable to disappoint them.
