❤❤ 4 star review of Mended by Sydney Landon ❤❤

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The conclusion of the Lucian & Lia Trilogy

My name is Lucian Quinn and I own one of the most successful software companies in the world. I’m twenty-nine, rich and single. Impressive right? I’m also a favorite target for every hungry socialite looking to land the uncatchable catch. Maybe it sounds vain, but the fact that I’m a God between the sheets doesn’t hurt my stock any. What these women don’t know though is that I’m completely screwed up and damaged beyond repair by my past. The only part of me I’ll ever willingly give them is the hour it takes to make them scream…several times. 

Then I saw her… 

I’m Lia Adams and I’m in my last year at St. Claire’s University in North Carolina. I grew up with an abusive mother, and a twisted stepfather who was worse…so much worse. I’m so close to escaping from my past and making my dreams come true. I’ll do anything necessary to survive, even work as an escort to help pay for my college expenses. The men that I accompany to various events as an escort for Date Night are mostly harmless and just want an attractive woman on their arm for an evening. It has never gone further than that…until him… 

Lucian finally shares his past heartache and guilt with Lia. Free of the shadows that have haunted them, they are ready to move forward together. 
Until…the woman who destroyed Lucian’s life eight years ago is suddenly free. Lucian is in a frantic race against time to convince those around him that Cassie is the ultimate threat to all that he holds dear. He’ll stop at nothing to protect the woman he loves even if he has to wage a war against his best friend to do it. 

Book 3 in the Lucian & Lia Trilogy. 

This book is meant for mature readers who are 18+. It contains explicit language, and graphic sexual content.

Holy crap. I got nervous there for a while that this book was going to be all lollipops and happy endings. I knew Sydney was going to throw a curveball at us, but I didn't expect it to be followed up with that much crazy. I mean wow. It's like poor Luc and Lia were magnets for the bat shit crazy. And thee best part is Sydney hinted, or Luc did rather, that something just didn't sit well and no one could figure hot the puzzle pieces. Well, until it was too late.

I could not believe the wrenches that Sydney threw at us. I mean you knew one thing was gonna go down, she's her own brand of crazy. But the levels of crazy are what surprised to, and also kept me sitting on the edge of my chair. Pushing my self to not put my kindle down because I just HAD to know what happened next.

While I love Sydney's brand of crazy for her characters, I also love the intimacy and connection between Luc and Lia. I love the strength they have attained with their relationship and feelings for one another. I love the strength they give one another. And I love the healing aspect too. Not only for Luc and Lia, but for Lia and Lee.

Now, I can't help but wonder what Sydney has planned for the quirky Rose and Max, and our poor Aiden. I know I'll be looking out for the other books in the series because these are the types of books that I just can't put down. There steam and love, drama and insanity. I just love it. And I love that you can finally take a deep breath and know that two very broken characters finally get a happily ever after.

I give this book 4 stars
