Natasha was DEVASTATED when Jackson, her first love, disappeared without a word only to pop up months later as a famous DJ. But now she’s over it―over him!―and ready to move on with her life! Isn’t she?

Jackson thought he was leaving Dodge Cove behind forever when he set off to LA to start his career as a DJ. But the one thing he had never been able to leave behind was the memory of his first love, Natasha, and now that he’s proven his success, he’s coming home to win her back…

Get ready to stop time, defy gravity and bring down the stars in this final book in Kate Evangelista’s Dodge Cove Trilogy!


I’m sure that, had I read the other books in this story, and having been already acquainted with some of the characters in this book, I would have been chomping at the bit to read this story.

As it is, this is a book which is read perfectly well as a standalone, but would no doubt be enhanced by reading books 1 and 2 first.

That said, this wasn’t a bad story.  It felt like a much shorter book than the number of pages imply, given that it was such an easy read.

There was little drama, although I did feel that the characters and their interactions were grounded in reality.  The humour and the dialogue all felt very organic.

For me, this is a book to read when you want a light, entertaining distraction.

I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
