Summary

Somos para siempre. Juntos somos una locura. One’s my salvation, the other the captor of my heart.

Love shouldn’t come in threes, so why is this happening to me? They say love is spilled from the veins and onto the skin of lovers.

Bleed, bleed, bleed until they set you free.

My blood will shed until one wins. They’re destined to destroy one another, and I’m caught in the middle. Will there be anyone left?

Don't sleep on this series.

6 stars You cannot read this without reading the previous two books and as such my review will be brief and vague. This series gets better book after book. The tension, the angst, the emotions all heightened since the events of book 2. The flawed, broken characters all still pull at my heart strings and I'm nervous for every one of them. This makes me feel a lot of things. But then when does a book by this author not? I trust them though. Always.

Amazing!

How do I even start a review for this book? After the first two book in this series, I thought I had a handle on how things would play out in Always. But CL Matthews has taken my easy way out and made life so much agonizing! I have to say, the complexity of this story is has me intrigued and wanting more. Leia is torn between men, though I think I know where she wants to be. Brax has become quite the character. He has matured in his thinking, and is beginning to take control of his life. Or is he? As a prospect, life is always uncertain, and he also has Brady and Leia on his mind. Then we have Sy, who is definitely one that I can't get a handle on. He is older, wiser, comes just at the right time, but I just don't know his mind yet. He is a tough one for me to figure out. And Leia, she is all tangled up. Brax is her best friend, and he is safe, but Sy holds her heart. Who should she be with? Add in the suspense and danger that surrounds all of them, and this book and series is fascinating. I can't wait for Forevers, it can't come soon enough!

The narration of this book is outstanding. The trio of Jacob Morgan, Aaron Shedlock, and Lacy Laurel makes the story come alive. Morgan becomes Brax, from the insecure boy to the confident man. He has a way with his voice that just is Brax. Shedlock uses that Spanish accent to woo us, as Sy. He is arrogant, and seductive and overly protective. Love it! And Laurel has an innocence in her voice as Leia, trying to figure out her life, be strong and confident and be true to herself. It's a fantastic listen.

Throwing in the towel!

This series had a lot of potential but I'm not going to see how things pan out.

First off- The titles are short and even though the story is engaging, it's too pricey to get to the end.

Second, and equally important- the female narrator is AWFUL! She sounds like a Valley-teen the way she sing-songs through each of her chapters. Also, they are supposed to be Puerto Rican but she comes off sounding Irish or Scottish sometimes. When she performed the male characters she sounded nasally and creepy. The actual male narrators were both good, but I literally cringed every time a new chapter started back with her. I looked for the books on Kindle to avoid her but I couldn't find them so I'll just have to conjure up a HEA for them on my own.

Next- the h started unraveling more and frankly got on my nerves. There were hidden things from her past that, now that they were divulged affected her pretty significantly, even though there was no mention of any trauma about this prior to the new (later) disclosures. I also despise when characters are high & mighty doling out accusations and judgement for the exact things they are equally or more guilty of themselves.

Lastly- the back & forth reflection on prior events started becoming repetitive and monotonous. I wondered if they were added as filler to stretch these mini-books into a less embarrassing length.

To wrap up, all the potential this series holds is drowned out by the horrible female narration and astronomical cost to get the whole series that should never have been more than a Duet. Save yourself multiple credits and wait for the series to be bundled with new/better narration.

I wasn't expecting that ending

Well, I wasn't expecting that ending at all. So, I enjoyed this book. I truly did. I loved seeing more of Sy, Leia, and Brax's relationship. Learning more about their past as well.

I am a little frustrated that this was published in 2019, it is now 2021, the ending says "To Be Continued" and the next book is still unavailable.

So, while I enjoyed this series, I think I would suggest waiting until the final book is out before reading them.
