Michelle's Review
Again, I will start off my review like I did for my review for book 2, if you haven’t read book 1 or 2, do not pass go and do not collect $200. You will be so lost if you do not read those 2 books first. Ok enough of bullying you all lol.

Well after the most romantic proposal left off in book 2, the story moves on forward. Sydney is finally getting to see her father again after 12 years of no contact. If you have read book 2, you already know why her parents decided no communication with her very famous father, Reid Tannen was for her best interest. I was so happy to finally to see the reunion with her father happen. Especially more so now that she is with Drew. When Sydney finally sees her dad, it’s as if the 12 years apart didn’t happen. Sydney had her daddy back, and her dad has his “heartbreaker”.

Sydney and Drew are joyfully blessed being engaged, but of course, he wants to shout it through the rooftop. Sydney is still trying to being back in the public eye with such a public figure and “Sexiest Man Alive”, she just wants to savor her engagement without the prying eyes of the world upon their relationship.

Drama continues to surround Sydney and Drew in the likes of Kiera Radcliffe. Boy I hated her in book 1, 2 and now 3. This bitch knows no bounds. Oh and the lovely Brit, Adam Reynolds. I had my little issues with Adam, I wasn’t sure what his true agenda was towards Sydney. He and Drew have a volatile past and I wanted to know exactly why they were so antagonistic towards each other. You too will finally find out why they hate each other so much. Of course, Adams does not make things easy by acquiring a $29 million dollar penthouse that he wants Sydney to redesign. Yep, let the fireworks begin people.

The ups and downs between Sydney and Drew’s relationship is off the scale. They are both so stubborn. I do love how Sydney is so much better with dealing being in the public eye, and being more assertive, but she really was trying my patience for being so petulant at times. Oh but Drew he’s so damn alpha and bossy. I understand him trying to protect Sydney, he still feels so guilty from the attack and the miscarriage during his movie premiere. I get it, but come on dude, open communication with your woman damn it!

Through it all her BFF Leah (whom I loved and is dating a famous actor herself, Ryder Brancroft), has always been her rock and voice of reason. I wished Sydney would have listened to Leah, maybe some of the unnecessary drama wouldn’t have happened.

Through it all, Sydney and Drew finally get their HEA. During his speech during his Oscar acceptance was very sweet and beautiful.

Here are some of my favorite Drew quotes, enjoy:

Bossy Drew – “You like that, don’t you? Getting fucked by me, held down while I take what I want?”

Real Alpha Drew – “I need to make sure you’re ready for me because I’m not going to be gentle.”

I really enjoyed reading Heather’s Famous Series. Thanks Yaya for introducing me to her writing. This book in particular was better paced. I cannot wait to read more of Heather’s stuff in the future. I’m going to miss Sydney and Drew.
