The Baileys have been part of my reading enjoyment for so long, yet not long enough. I am sad this is the end. I am going to miss this family and their antics. With nine siblings in the family, nine books and a couple of novellas, there is a lot to love. From Austin to Sedona, my heart is full. This family has become so special to me as well as the small town of Lake Starlight, Alaska that these books take place in. If you’ve read anything from this author duo before, then you already know they are incredible storytellers.
This last book is the story of Sedona and Jamison. From the first book of the series, we meet the family. Sedona and Jamison were high school sweethearts; they were each other’s first and only love. By the time Sedona and Jamison’s story is told, it is about a decade later. For most of those years they were together, with the exception of the last eighteen months. Jamison was playing professional soccer when an injury sidelined his career. Not dealing with that loss in a positive manor, he became someone that Sedona couldn’t be with. With her heart broken, Sedona returns home to Lake Starlight eight months pregnant.
When Jamison finally shows up to claim his family, he will have a lot of groveling to do. Jamison is now enemy number one in the eyes of the Bailey family. With only Grandma Dori rooting for him, and helping him in her own Grandma Dori way, he has a lot of rough road before him. I too was rooting for him. His struggles were real and he did everything he could to overcome them. Jamison became a man I was proud of. Sedona tried to keep Jamison at a distance but it was difficult. Although she was rightfully angry with him, she never stopped loving him. I was so happy with the moments they shared together prior to becoming a couple once again. The author took their time to give a slower pace with Jamison and Sedona’s relationship, yet keeping a steady flow of words so that the story didn’t stall or lag.
While all the books in the series are stand alone, I recommend you read them all. And the great thing about that is since all the books are available in the series now, with Rules for Dating Your Ex being the last, this a perfect binge-worthy opportunity.
I am so looking forward to the spinoff series coming from this. Another Alaska town series, more siblings, and another meddlesome grandmother who has the help of her great friend Dori, and the writing talents of Piper Rayne, of course!
This is my honest and unbiased review and I thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂
