I was loving Rivers, I was completely swept up in the swoony moments at the beginning of his reunion with his first love. The desperation and longing that was so evident between Rivers and Stella, goodness me, I was into it. I absolutely love a second chance romance even more than I may even love a rockstar romance and since Rivers is both, I found the first half of this book to be completely absorbing and it definitely held my interest.  Then, for me, it kind of went off the rails. I'm just not a reader that enjoys OTT storylines and this one went a bit over the top in the second half. I'm going to avoid spoilers and just say that the Brian aspect of this plot completely lost me. I was confused enough by all of it that I actually reread the book (yes... I reread the whole book) to see if it would make more sense to me the second time around. While I managed to put the pieces together in the end, I still came away feeling like maybe there was just too much unnecessary stuff thrown around in this book, details that took this romance and made it too crazy to be believed for my personal taste. The side drama inevitably took me out of the story. Also, when the truth of what actually happened with Naomi came out, I was hugely disappointed. It was just a let down. Honestly, if a relationship that's as epic as what Stella and Rivers had is going to end over something, it really better be a big something. It has to make sense and I can't buy into the fact that Rivers would let Stella go over something so... so... meh. There's just no reason "the truth" should've ended a relationship. I would've actually bought into it more if Rivers had just cheated.  I realize i'm in the minority with this opinion which is wonderful... other readers are LOVING it so you probably will too! I'm sad about this one to be honest but, at the end of the day, i'm just a picky reader that likes believability even in my fictional romances. This one wasn't believable enough for me and I came away disappointed but I do love this series and there was a lot to love about Rivers. The romance in this book is a sexy, sweet, satisfying one. I'm actually glad I read it twice just to see Rivers and Stella reconnect because it was just as steamy and sexy and emotional the second time around. The romantic aspect of this book is a solid one and I really enjoyed it. But all the other stuff, unfortunately, I just wasn't feeling it.

    *I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book* 5 "Too" Stars I honestly don't even know how to start this review. I'm still an emotional wreck over here. I will start off by saying that I've waited, and not so patiently for River's book. To say I was on pins and needles would be an understatement. I desperately needed every single detail that had to do with River's life. Seeking answers to questions that plagued me ever since Jet's book. And what I got, I definitely was not expecting. Ever *I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book* 5 "Too" Stars I honestly don't even know how to start this review. I'm still an emotional wreck over here. I will start off by saying that I've waited, and not so patiently for River's book. To say I was on pins and needles would be an understatement. I desperately needed every single detail that had to do with River's life. Seeking answers to questions that plagued me ever since Jet's book. And what I got, I definitely was not expecting. Ever since that fateful night where things happened which led to everything changing, and inso ultimately rewriting the future, Stella hasn't been the same. She's the shell of the vibrant and lively person she once was. Her heart and soul are with the one person who owns them since they were fifteen. Stella never thought she'd be living a life that didn't include Rivers, her forever love. Walking aimlessly through life, lost and trying to seek some semblance of the person she used to be, but to no avail. Stella has been through a lot. Some unimaginable things, though she's trying her best to move on as best she can. And though she's tried to move on from Rivers as well, that's a feat that'll take more time. Rivers Crow is a rockstar. He and his brothers make up The Crow Brothers band. You'd think he'd be on top of the world with all the attention the band gets. Plus, the money and the endless amount of groupies. But Rivers could careless about all that. Yes, he loves making music and performing, but it would mean more if he was sharing it with Stella, the star of his life. It's been five years and there hasn't been a day Rivers hasn't thought about Stella. Their demise is always right there, in the forefront. Thinking about how different everything would be if a promise wasn't made. Or if Stella would've just listened and had faith in Rivers, but especially had faith in what they had and how real it was. But the unthinkable happened which led to irrevocable damage and broken hearts. Stella and Rivers tugged at every heartstring. I couldn't help but root so hard for them. They were two characters that deserved every good thing. With the things that they've both been through they deserved happiness. And they deserved that happiness with each other. There is no Rivers without Stella and no Stella without Rivers. Their heart and soul were made to perfectly sync with the other. Stella and Rivers were a chaotic and beautiful mess. But the way they loved and loved each other, oh gosh it was everything. I didn't know what to expect. I honestly did not think I was going to be an emotional mess. Stella and Rivers's story took me on such a bumpy ride. With countless twists and turns and revelations that surprised the hell out of me and did not, I repeat, DID NOT see coming. I was on the edge of my seat turning the pages at record speed to find what was going to happen next. And I was not disappointed. Going into this book I already had a favorite Crow brother. I'm not going to lie and say there was no way my mind wouldn't get swayed because obviously things happen. And oh did they happen. A couple of chapters into Rivers and it was no question that my mind was changed. Rivers wholeheartedly cemented himself as my favorite Crow brother. SL, you've done it again. How do you do it? Book after book just gets better and better. I can't wait for Ridge's book. I'm so excited to see how it's going to play out. Ahhh, I need it now.

The way this man loves Stella with all his heart, the way he wants to protect her, love her and his words alone will have your heart melting and you falling in love with him.

This book just brought all of the emotions. I love this series but I have to say that Rivers is by far my favorite Crow brother. The way this man loves Stella with all his heart, the way he wants to protect her, love her and his words alone will have your heart melting and you falling in love with him. Stella and Rivers started dating in high school. They were “it” for each other. They had a love that most people dream of having. They both thought that their future would be spent together. Until one day it all fell apart when things between them became complicated. Never given the chance to explain what really happened, Rivers later left to pursue his dreams leaving behind the only woman he ever loved and his heart. Stella was heart broken over what had happened, but after five years she may finally be in a place where she is moving on from Rivers Crow, until he shows up wanting a second chance. In the past five years, not a day has gone by where he did not think of her. He has a week in Austin and he plans on spending it by getting his girl back. He needs her to trust him again, see that he never stopped loving her and hope for a second chance to be together again. Even if Stella hears him out and agrees to give him a second chance, she has a secret that can destroy everything. Once he knows the truth she is afraid that he will never love her the same way. Will they get their second chance and be together? I cannot begin to tell you how much I loved this book. The emotions I felt were all over. I swear I felt every bit of love ad passion between Stella and Rivers. There were times when I became o emotional just by their words alone. Opening up to each other, describing their feelings for the past five years and how much they still loved each other is what made me feel so much in this book. I was sad for them, felt the same hurt as them, but also felt so happy that they were here today working on their love again. Rivers is a man that will melt your heart and make you swoon all at the same time. My God this man had me from the very beginning. He was sweet and kind but also very protective and alpha male when it came to Stella. And I loved it!!!! Stella broke my heart with her story. What this girl went through and what she selfishly did to protect her family just broke me. But she is such a strong woman who survived and continued to move forward. And once Rivers came back into her life he was the light that was missing. She slowly because the woman she once was and I think Rivers helped bring her out. Rivers is the third book in this series and my favorite. SL Scott did not disappoint with this one. It is emotional, filled with drama and angst, moments that will break you and then ones that will make you smile. There is an element of suspense and some twists that will leave you with your mouth wide open. I may have seen one coming but the others completely shocked me. Another fantastic job. From the moment I started I could not put it down. I cannot wait for the next one.

He's the quiet one, carries the weight of the world on his shoulders and it shows in his actions and words. The ladies love him, but he's not a player. His heart has always belonged to his one true love Stella, his high school sweetheart. Rivers was honest and wore his heart on his sleeve, that is such a sexy trait in a man. I loved how he didn't play games with Stella. He didn't push her when she needed time to sort through her feelings. Rivers was patient every step of the way and it made me love him even more. Stella has hit some major bumps in the road while Rivers was away making a name for himself with The Crow Brothers. Stella protected her sister at every turn, sacrificing pieces of her own happiness to keep her safe. I admired Stella for her selfless acts and willingness to make the best life for the two of them. This was a beautiful second chance romance that will have to believing in the power of love. It was full of heart, compassion and forgiveness. Miles may have separated this two over the years, but their hearts remained true to one another in a way only soulmates can. You need Rivers in your life. He will make you swoon like a love-sick fool and have you grinning from ear to ear. My heart is full of love for this hot rocker. Thanks you SL Scott for another great read!

Rivers is a standalone novel but I highly recommend you read all about the Crow Brothers to understand the connection. Rivers is the middle brother that has captured my heart. His all about the music, he doesn’t crave the attention of the music business but wholeheartedly wants what his other brothers have, a love to call his own. This story drove me into a deep hole of regrets. You see, Stella who is the female heroine in this story was Rivers, the one that got away, love. A love that slowly enters your heart but what the heart wants isn’t what the heart is going to get. This is where the author weaves her magic and creates a story that has you guessing at every turn. I love how what you expect to happen is far from what transpires. S.L. Scott, you are a phenomenal writer. On every page, you brought the level of closeness and regrets these two main characters had to the forefront of the book and I will be forever be invested with this love story.

    I've enjoyed the previous books but Rivers is my favourite in the series by a mile. I just loved Rivers, his story, his personality the relationship with his brothers and his love interest it was all perfect. So we've got to know Rivers as the quiet more measured guy in the group but now we find out about his past and his biggest regret. I really don't want to say anything about his girl and their story that would be a big spoiler.

All the guys are in the story it was great to catch up with them all. reviewed by Sweet Spot Sisterhood

    "My heart beats to his — musically, physically, emotionally, I'm in sync with this man." I've been so excited to read Rivers who is the final Crows brother, though he's actually the middle child. He's the more laid-back brother who plays the bass guitar in the band. He's not a manwhore or attention seeker, he just loves to play music and tolerates the rest in order to do so.

I've been so excited to read Rivers who is the final Crows brother, though he's actually the middle child. He's the more laid-back brother who plays the bass guitar in the band. He's not a manwhore or attention seeker, he just loves to play music and tolerates the rest in order to do so. As the band enjoys their success and celebrates with their loved ones he yearns for what his brothers have. He and Ridge are the only ones still single, though not by choice. Rivers lost the love of his life five years ago, the girl he fell in love with when they were both fifteen. He left her behind in Austin, along with his heart. I can't resist a rocker romance or broken characters, but then the author had to go and throw in some suspense to raise the stakes in this poker game and I was all-in. She kept me at the table all night long with her amazing characters. She took me back in time and let me fall in love with them as they fell in love with each other. I sighed and swooned and then I was shocked and sad when it fell apart. Their connection was so intense that I felt it and mourned the loss along with them. When Rivers came back for Stella I was cheering for #Romeo on the sidelines. I was anxious for him to win her back and for them to ride off into the sunset on his tour bus. I was expecting soulful lyrics and sexy shenanigans but what I got was much more than that. This story is much more than music and misunderstandings, it goes deeper and darker than that. While Rivers was rocking the concert venues and pining for his lost love she was struggling to keep her head above water. She was drowning and her other half that had promised her forever was not there to save her. I confess, I'm a nosy reader and I wanted to know all of their secrets. While the author put me inside both of their heads, the characters did not share everything with me. Nope, I begged and bartered but the answers didn't come quickly, there was no rushing the flow. I had to feel their pain and endure their memories as they fought for their love that was actually never lost, just denied. When it comes to us, years don't matter. Only heartbeats and I don't remember a time when mine didn't beat solely for you." Damn! How are we supposed to get over that? How did they survive it? I was tempted to peek at the end just to reassure myself that they would find their way back to each other, healed and whole. But alas, I could not deny myself the journey, so I endured a page at a time with my fingers crossed and my breath held. What a ride... I'll leave you with these words that I took from this story, but I'll direct them to the author, Stalked is a strong word. Accurate, but strong." The line forms here...

The one he loves, the one who loves him back, the one promises were made about. The one who sent him away, the one who was left alone. They fell in love at the early age of fifteen, and then they believed their loeve could conquer all. And it probably could, if it wasn't for one fateful event who changed everything, but their deep love for each other. Now, after five years of their painful breakup, Rivers is back to right the wrongs and plead for a new chance. It was heartwrenching, beautifully written, raw and deep. I could feel their pain, their struggle, their longing and hope, their surrender and their fight int them. This is one of those books that make you feel everything, and even when you finish reading, you still carry it inside you for a very long time. It's exquisite and unforgetable, just like Rivers and Stella's love was.

Rivers walked away... -Five years have dragged since I walked away, leaving my heart broken at her feet. And now he is back to claim her. It just seems unrealistic to me. I just can not picture someone leaving someone for so many years for some lame reason. And out of no where decided to run back to the person. -But she's stronger than I am. She held out longer, didn't take my calls, didn't return my texts, never contacted me. This is why I hate year gaps. It is just to hard to believe it. Five years no contact, and Rivers decides it is time to come back to the star of his life. *Laughing* Stella tells Rivers she is taking and the story begins. (view spoiler)[She really isn't. Lol She has a friend though. (hide spoiler)] One month until the band has to be back in the studio. Ten days before I head back to California. Nine days to figure out the next chapter in my personal life. image: Of course Rivers had other woman during the five years. "I could never date anyone else seriously because they weren't you." "It's okay that you slept with others. I don't love it, but you were free to do so. I also hate thinking about it, but I won't hold it against you." image: Are you freaking kidding me. It gives details on what they use to have five years ago. There love was supposed to be strong like they were this perfect couple. Yet Rivers lets a friend come in the middle of there relationship. The secret he was hiding for the friend that ruined there relationship was just so weak. The book drops dramatically. It started out okay, then just became to much. I really think less is better. It is just so much ridiculous crap in here. Selling herself to loan sharks, a lame secret that came in between them. She welcomes him back five years later with open arms. More drama, and craziness all the way to the end. Another do not finish for me. I made it almost to the end. It just became to much! I should have downloaded free. Wasted my money. There was so many good reviews on amazon. image: I don't know if it is just me if I am being to picky. I have read a few books from this author before and they were okay. But this one just went over board. None of it was believable. I search kindle, and all of these books it is so hard to find a book. They are all the same, just different writers.

Rivers is the middle Crow brother and the most intense! Jet, the oldest, is kind, thoughtful, giving and smoking hot! Jet made me swoon! Tulsa, the youngest, is laid back, and has a free spirit/vibe about him. He was the wild ride. I knew when it came to Rivers that he would have a more intense and mysterious story. My heart beats to his-musically, physically, emotionally. I’m in sync with this man. The Crow Brothers have worked hard for the success that they are starting to experience. They have each had to make sacrifices for success. Cause and effect. Destiny. Fate. Sacrifices have to be made. They’re a side effect of the dues that have to be paid on the road to fame. Rivers has lost his way. He watches his brothers find love and happiness and wonders if he will ever experience that again. Five years ago he walked away from Stella, his heart and soul. His north star. He hurt Stella because of a promise he made. One that he could not disclose. He never expected Stella, the love of his life, to lose faith/trust in him. His pride felt wounded. Rivers has good intentions and a sense of chivalry. He has boyish charms with a helping of sexiness. He is lost and has also lost his focus. He returns to Stella to either say goodbye or win her back. “I’ve loved you longer than I haven’t” Stella Fellowes has a heart of gold. She has loved Rivers Crow since she was fifteen. Circumstances led them to part and she has never truly gotten over him. As Rivers appears back in her life she begins to wonder if maybe his good intentions were just that. Recent circumstances have caused Stella to become sad. She is going through life’s motions on auto pilot. Young love does that, overshadows all else. Rivers and Stella’s story is laid out in a slow and steady rhythm. Nothing is rushed. There is a sense of mystery when it comes to the situation surrounding their break up. There are secrets, regrets and complications. They both have walls up. Breaking them down is no easy feat. Choices were made by both. There are a lot of realities that are brought forth. Will they survive? There is angst and bumps, major bumps, in the road. They still share the same passion and chemistry but will it be enough? Miles are the only thing that will ever be between us. Money won’t fill a body missing its soul. Only a soul mate can reconcile the two. And Stella is mine. I have enjoyed this series! Each brother has brought us a different flavor of their personalities and their own ways of coping with what life has thrown their way. I love their comradery and strength that they pull from each other. The brothers Crow are so much stronger when they are together! You know what money can’t buy me? Morales. A clear conscious. Coming soon is the honorary Crow brother Dave “Ridge” Carson’s story! I have my suspicions about his love interest…. I am also hoping to see more of ‘Faris Wheel’ in the future as well! 4 stars #RockStars #AlphaMale #Romace #RiversCrow #SlScott #RiversAndStella https://www.amazon.com/gp/review/R17K...

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher/author to review for Stephanie's Book Reports. Rivers is the third book in SL Scott's The Crow Brother's Series.

Stella Fellowes has a life she doesn't want-an unfulfilling job, debt without a ceiling, and lonely nights she spends pretending not to miss the one thing she needs-the boy who broke her heart. Five years later, the guitarist she once loved is back with a hit record, million of fans, and that look in his eye that still makes her weak in the knees. Only she's no the same girl he once knew. When these two star-crossed lovers come together, time starts to heal old wounds. Although she's compelled to look past his sins, will he be able to look past hers? Welcome to Rivers story. He is a man that has everything he could ever want. A band, and is able to live the life that most of us are only able to dream of. If you have read the other books I am sure you loved Jet and Tulsa but there is just no way your not going to love Rivers more. This book if filled with angst!! It is also one of my favorite kind of reads, a second chance romance. Neither of these characters are prefect, River has made some mistakes in the past and has paid for them. Even with the fame he still can't get Stella out of his head and he wants her back. He sure can't get her out of his head. She is the only one that can put him back together. Stella has got to have one of the biggest hearts but that heart is shattered from the events that she believes took place five years ago. She has made some choices since then that have left her broken. These two are so perfect for each other and their chemistry oozes right off the pages. Once you start your not going to be able to put this book down. I loved every second of it. Heck I wouldn't mind having a Rivers of my very own.

I really love Rivers. He's a man with a heart of gold, willing to do anything to help someone in need. He wears his feelings unashamedly on his sleeve. You can't help but fall for his character. Stella is a woman who has loved him since she was fifteen. She was close to his family and loved by his mom and siblings. She has not had it easy since Rivers left, but has persevered to make a life for her and her sister Meadow. SL Scott gives us a story of love, heartbreak, angst, and intimate moments. Her storytelling is heartfelt. Rivers is the third book in the Crow Brothers series and can be read as a stand alone novel. The first two books in this series are Spark and Tulsa. If you love second chance love stories, I highly recommend you read Rivers.

    Oh, this is very detailed and delicious. The first half is a bit tedious but it's all a ruse to get you up the hill on the roller coaster of suspense. At times it's very gritty. It may trigger some people..there are monsters out there. Our Stella is super strong. Rivers may match her in loyalty and love. It's a cool ride.

    “Loving you is my greatest honor and hurting you my biggest regret. No matter where I was in the world , my heart stayed here with you. You were more than my girlfriend. You were my sanctuary, my haven.” OMG! Rivers is going straight into my best reads of 2018 folder. I am so in love with this story! Spark, and Tulsa had nothing on Rivers! HIS STORY IS EVERYTHING!

I honestly had 21 highlights from this book! This is hands down S.L. Scott's best book to date. I could NOT put this story down. The plot twists were phenomenal, and constantly kept me on the edge of my seat. I DID NOT WANT THIS STORY TO END! Each page was packed to the brim with angst, heartache, and love. I have NEVER read a book that had me melting with SWOONS one page, just to leave me crying in heartbreak the next. Rivers is a emotional roller coaster you never want to quit riding. My heart is so full of feels I am struggling to find the words to describe just how hauntingly beautiful this story truly was. I feel like nothing I say will ever be enough to do this book justice. Stella and Rivers are the true definition of soul mates. I have NEVER read characters with such a strong, all consuming connection. They are the blood that runs through each others viens. Their chemistry is OFF THE CHARTS as it sizzles from the pages of your kindle. The magic of Stella and Rivers love has forever enchanted a piece of my soul. "She smiles, not just brightening the dark room a little more, but lighting up my life." Stella is one of the best heroines I have had the pleasure of reading. She lived up to the name, lighting up the pages like a star in the night. Stella had a beautiful soul, and a even bigger heart. Every page you read had you admiring her character more and more. She protected everything she loved with determination and unwavering strength. My heart broke for the damaged women the demons of her past left behind. I cried so many times for all the sadness and hurt her character endured. If anyone deserved happiness it was her. No matter what her character faced, she put on a brave smile, picked up the pieces, and continued to face life head on. I want to bury myself in his arms to recapture the protection of his love. He makes that feel possible. Rivers makes everything feel possible again. His heart beats in sync with his every emotion in the clear depths of his soulful eyes. There are no games with him. When he wants something , he’s all in." Rivers will be your next book boyfriend. No character has grabbed a piece of my soul quite like Rivers did. Everything about him was simply beautiful, inside and out. I think I fell in love with him from the very first page. His vulnerability haunts you, while his love completely consumes you. Every word out of his mouth had me melting in feels. I swooned so much I'm not sure I have any left at this point. Rivers is the most charming romantic Alpha I have EVER read. Every word he spoke, every emotion he felt, every little thing he did was packed full of utter devotion. “Our love was never too big for us. The world just couldn’t handle something so good.” *5 STARS* Will NEVER feel like enough for this book! I would rate it 100 stars if I could. I CAN NOT recommend this book enough! I feel like any Rockstar romances I read from here on out I will always compare to Rivers. YES IT IS JUST THAT GOOD! This second chance romanace consumes your mind long after the pages end. *I voluntarily read a advanced copy!*

Stella is an amazing heroine, beat down to hell and back, she keeps rising and I loved her determination and tenacity. Rivers is a man who never stopped loving Stella, and has to prove it to her. I'm absolutely DYING for Ridge now!

    Rivers Crow should be living the good life; he has fame, money, a slew of fans, and a career that he loves, but none of that matters because he doesn’t have the love of his life by his side, which means that his success is bittersweet and as unfulfilling as it is worthwhile. Stella Fellowes’ life has never been easy, but the night she lost her soulmate due to a misunderstanding and the subsequent events that followed only solidified her new perspective on life - trust no-one and love no-one beca Rivers Crow should be living the good life; he has fame, money, a slew of fans, and a career that he loves, but none of that matters because he doesn’t have the love of his life by his side, which means that his success is bittersweet and as unfulfilling as it is worthwhile. Stella Fellowes’ life has never been easy, but the night she lost her soulmate due to a misunderstanding and the subsequent events that followed only solidified her new perspective on life - trust no-one and love no-one because it only leads to pain and devastation. But sooner or later, the past needs to be confronted…the truth needs to be revealed and if there’s any chance for a second chance…a new beginning, it needs to be fought for until it’s clear there’s nothing to get back. I have to admit…I was quite overwhelmed with all the plot lines involved in Rivers and Stella’s story. At its center, Rivers is a second chance romance; the hero and heroine have spent five years apart, which means that they are essentially strangers when Rivers heads home to Austin to try and win Stella back. The steps to a reconciliation while confronting the past is an arduous task on its own, so complicating things even further with other plot points was a bit taxing. Don’t get me wrong, adding in further conflict to Rivers and Stella’s reunion was necessary, but in some ways, there were too many outside issues to factor in and it took the focus off of what went wrong between Rivers and Stella and what it would take to repair what was broken. What I also struggled with was the main reason for Rivers and Stella’s breakup. Throughout the entire book, it’s made clear that these two were soulmates…that they shared the kind of love that would never waiver, but their love crumbled under one incident…one secret that was kept…one favor for a friend and a promise made - all due to a misunderstanding and a refusal to hear an explanation. That should not have broken their love…it should not have shaken their foundation, but it did and in my opinion, they both gave up too easily, not fighting for what was supposed to be forever. Despite my issues and concerns with some of the story, though, I enjoyed Rivers, and I was solidly in their corner when it came to working towards a second chance. The intimate scenes between Rivers and Stella captured the love between them and the ease in which their feelings reemerged and their connection got back on track illustrated the true depth of their love. There’s only one Crow brother left, Ridge, and with his perspective on life and love, it will be interesting to see where his story goes and how easy or difficult it will be for the right woman to bring him to his knees. 3.5 Poison Apples (The Fairest of All Book Reviews)

The pace of the story works really well and doesn't feel rushed. Each time a piece of Stella's past is revealed it adds just enough suspense to keep the story moving along and hammers at the readers heart ... at least my heart took a beating. Let's be real, we go into this story for the sexy as sin Crow brothers, but I didn't expect so much heartache and love to breathe from the pages. Rivers and Stella are far from perfect and they both have made mistakes, but their broken imperfect pieces fit together and that is evident within the first few minutes of their reunion. Sometimes it just takes a second chance and personal growth to finally get the happily ever after that you've craved.

Stella on the other hand is also strong and loyal to her family. There is not a single thing that she wouldn't do for those who she loves. I like her strong charachter very much. And Ridge? Yeah we got to see glimpses of him and I can't wait for the end of September when his book comes out. I absolutely loved the ending and the closure that Rivers finally got.

Especially since their initial relationship was all happy rainbows and unicorns and no secrets. And then the bombshell was dropped about Stella's past and then it all made sense. That made for one helluva a twist! The "resolution" left me feeling a bit frustrated, and the actions of one character was confusing, but still, this is a solid addition for this series!

And this is the problem I had with this book, I didn't really think their five year break up was warranted based on the reason behind it. If you profess that someone is the love of your life and they ask you to trust them, you should, especially when you have no reason not to. The story took a little long to get to the HEA with some plot twists thrown in. Ultimately Rivers is worth taking a chance on.
