4 Star review by Jen Hagen

This is the third book in The Love Series.  The first two books were about Mackenzie and Hunter.  This book focuses on Mason (Mackenzie’s brother) and Hailey (Mackenzie’s best friend).  At the end of book 2, Mason was found in a compromising position being cornered by one of the girls’ enemies, Lily.   Lily had at one time been a one-night-stand for Mason.  Needless to say, Hailey was not completely convinced that this was “nothing” that she stumbled upon in the hall. 

It turns out the reason that Lily accosted Mason in the hall was to let him know that she has some dirt on someone in his family that would cause turmoil.  Okay, simple enough…tell Hailey the truth and things will be right between Mason and Hailey again.  Mason was going to ask Hailey to move in with him, so by telling her the secret they can move forward with their lives and forget about Lily.  Mason doesn’t make it that simple.  Mason is supremely loyal to his family and there is no way that he will tell anybody about this revelation without first talking to the person it involves and getting the facts straight.

“Just trust me though, please.  I’ve never let you down before, Hailey, and I’m not going to start now.”

Mason and his twin brother, Cooper, are both in the minor league of baseball.  They are constantly being noticed by “cleat chasers” a.k.a. women throwing themselves at the guys, and although Mason has never strayed from Hailey before, in the past he has had his fair share of women and it was difficult for him to commit to Hailey.  Now that he has her, he doesn’t want to let her go but this secret is going to rip them apart if he doesn’t tell her soon.

“I need you to tell me what happened, Mason.  You can fix all this but I just need the truth.  My heart tells me you didn’t do anything with her but I can’t stop what I saw.” 

Just tell her, Mason!!!  Do it before Lily finds another way to put doubt inside Hailey’s head.  Obviously he didn’t pay any attention to me or others telling him what he should do.  He plays the loyalty card to perfection.  Now comes all the angst (oh yes, there is lots of it!!!).  Hailey came from a family that let her believe that it was because of her that her parent’s marriage fell apart.  She has never had anybody fight for her.   She suffers immense insecurities and fears of not being wanted.  This fuels her trust issues with Mason and unfortunately leads her to believe the lies that are being told. 

Sobs rock me so hard I can’t breathe and I beg the next breath not to come.  I don’t want to feel the pain, the betrayal, the heartache.

I have enjoyed all three books of this series.  I find them to be quick reads loaded with everything that I enjoy in a book – love, heartbreak and all the drama that keeps them apart.  There will be two more books in this series.  A new character has been introduced that may have an interesting back story to tell us.  I hope we can hear more about him and the girl who broke his heart.  The conclusion of Mason and Hailey’s story ties in with who I assume will be the next star couple, Cooper and Jaylinn.

Please don’t let this be the end for them. -- Mason
