BOLD LOVE is the third and final book in the FOREVER ADIRONDACKS series, and I’m sorry to see it end. This is a wonderful continuation of the series as we return to the small town of Pine Ridge and meet up with many wonderful characters that I’ve enjoyed visiting with.
This is Denny and Bee’s story, and it doesn’t disappoint as we are on an emotional roller coaster ride with them. They have nothing in common except a few friends, but there’s a definite sizzling attraction between them. Bee has her future mapped out until Denny offers her a job decorating his huge house in the mountains at an insane salary. He’s an ex-football star who walked away from all that entails and is still trying to figure out what he wants to do with the rest of his life. She’s a city girl; he likes hikes in the mountains and the solitude of the small town.
They often have trouble communicating, but when they are on the same page—look out! He’s tolerant of her needing her own space, her brother who pops in and out of her life, and her friends (who are quirky in their own way.) I love the interactions between them and the others. Their parents all seem to have their own agendas and don’t have the best interest of their kids in mind. I liked how Denny and Bee came out of their comfort zones with the support of each other and realized together, they could handle anything.
BOLD LOVE has a good flow. Filled with fun interactions, romance, and some drama, the story satisfies. There is some closure, especially with the epilogue, but I really wanted the story to go on a little longer since it’s the last book in the trilogy.
I enjoyed the books in this series. I look forward to seeing what Ms. Accardo pens next.
