Review: Avoiding Temptation by K.A. Linde

Two years after walking out of Jack’s wedding, Lexi has finally put her past behind her. She has made up her mind about where her life is headed. This time, she is sticking to her guns, no matter what.

That is, until a phone call shatters the fragile grasp she has on her new life. Lexi is forced to question everything she thought she knew about what she wanted, and life-changing events push her to reevaluate the very plans she holds so dear. Nevertheless, Lexi has to choose her true path. That might just mean deciding, once and for all, that she doesn’t have to answer to anyone but herself.

In this highly anticipated final installment of the bestselling Avoiding series, follow Lexi as she juggles a new career, a new city, and the burgeoning affections of three very different men.

How to write this review....

Lexi.  I never really cared for her.  After this book, I really don't care for her.  Her inability to not only commit but to be honest with herself is infuriating!  I just want to slap her many times!!!  I think I may have said that in the past about her!

Jack.  I have always despised him.  This time around is no different.  I just wish he would do everyone a favor and jump off of a cliff!

Bekah... I don't really need to go into detail about her.  She is the one we all love to hate.  Nothing has changed.

Ramsey.  I have always felt sorry for him.  From the very beginning, I felt bad for him.  In this book, I really felt for him.  He fell for the wrong woman.  The woman that will never be able to make up her mind or open her heart completely!

With that... Let the love triangle commence.  Yes, I said let it commence.  Just when you thought that things were going to go forward with Lexi and Ramsey... Did you really think it would be that simple?  I mean, really?

There is a proposal.  There is a yes.  Question is, is there a wedding?  Well, I cannot tell you that one.  I can tell you that Jack has weaseled his way in.  Ramsey and Lexi are engaged.  Jack and Bekah are getting divorced... Chyna and Adam are engaged and getting ready to tie the knot.

So where does that leave us?  Indecisions.  Unsure.  Evil plotting.  Confused.  Heartbroken.  Overwhelmed.  Disgusted.  I can keep on going with the one-liners.

The ending... I was pissed all the way off!  I did not like the ending at all!  It is not what I wanted.  It is not how I would have had things go.  Some got what was coming to them, and others were not worthy of happiness.  And some, did not get any happiness at all!

So you are probably wondering why I gave this 4-stars.  Well, that is because of everything I have said above and then some.  Yes, things aren't going to go the way you want all of the time, but that is what makes this book worthy of 4-stars.  The number of emotions you will feel alone are 4-star worthy.  I have had messages from people saying they hated this book... The idea of rating a book isn't just about what you wanted to happen; it's more about how it is written, how the story is told, and how well it kept you on the edge of your seat.  So yes, this is totally a 4-star book!!!
