Shine (Shade #3) by Jeri Smith-Ready

Shine (Shade, #3) Shine (Shade #3) by Jeri Smith Ready.  Published May 2012 by Simon Pulse.  CDN $9.99 Kindle edition.

Life can change in an instant, and no one understands that better than Aura. It’s been almost a year since her boyfriend tragically died. She’s finally letting go of Logan’s violet-hued ghost, but not her search to uncover the truth about her past.

As the first in a generation that can see ghosts, Aura is convinced she has a connection to the Shift. She’s trusted Zachary, ever patient and ever by her side, with all that she knows. But when the government threatens his life in an attempt to learn Aura’s secrets, she will stop at nothing to protect herself and the one she loves…even if that means betraying her own heart.  (Goodreads excerpt)

I have to say that the conclusion to the trilogy was everything you could hope for.  Everything was explained with nothing left out.  I finished the book feeling complete.  It was very emotional and heart wrenching, but well worth it in the end. The ending actually surprised me a little.  I don’t want to give it away, but you felt it was going one way and at the last minute the writer finishes it in an unexpected but equally satisfying way.

The biggest thing about this book is that Logan isn’t in it.  He was such an integral part of the first two books and to not have him in it made me think it was not going to be very good.  I was wrong.  The book focuses on the relationship between Zachary and Aura.  They have a once in a lifetime love (cliché I know..but true!) The story is very emotional and very powerful and draws you in so that you feel that these two have to be together no matter what.  They are the kind of couple that everybody dreams of being a part of.

There was still a lot of drama and suspense and the book was very exciting to read.  It wasn’t all romance and mushy stuff…lol, there is plenty of ass kicking and action to keep the reader entertained.

Overall I really enjoyed the book.  5 stars for me.

Before I could answer, he kissed me, letting the barest edge of his tongue graze my upper lip. Maybe it was the lingering taste of tea and chocolate, but the feel of his mouth on mine sent a shock of adrenaline out to the tips of my toes and fingers, and all parts in between.

Yes, I thought, Now is very good.

My Teaser:

Did I want to be the Secret Savior of Shades? After hearing firsthand of Logan’s hellish ordeal, how could I not help them?

Besides, this experiment wasn’t just charity work. Tonight Has given me a big piece of the “who am I?” puzzle. One I planned to finally solve in Ireland, with Zachary.
