A wonderful conclusion to the 'Sam and Alyssa' storyline. Their story really begins in book 2, and heats up fast. I would recommend reading the earlier books first, but there is enough backstory provided to make this a stand alone read. The secondary storylines were also very interesting. We have Max and Gina, who later get their own book (in 8 I think). The WWII story didn't dominate as in previous books, which I really appreciated. I don't always care for the WWII storyline, but this one was interesting and directly tied to Sam. Jules (Alyssa's partner) continues to be gem. His attitude is priceless and we get to see plenty of him in this book. Love him! This is a great series with a few misses, but so worth reading.
