Two years after walking out of Jack’s wedding, Lexi has finally put her past behind her. She has made up her mind about where her life is headed. This time, she is sticking to her guns, no matter what.
That is, until a phone call shatters the fragile grasp she has on her new life. Lexi is forced to question everything she thought she knew about what she wanted, and life-changing events push her to reevaluate the very plans she holds so dear. Nevertheless, Lexi has to choose her true path. That might just mean deciding, once and for all, that she doesn’t have to answer to anyone but herself.
In this highly anticipated final installment of the bestselling Avoiding series, follow Lexi as she juggles a new career, a new city, and the burgeoning affections of three very different men.

“So, are you seeing anyone?” Lexi asked, blowing on her coffee.
He looked at her sideways, assessing her, before answering, “Nothing serious.”
“So, you are seeing someone! What’s she like? Is she putting up a fight?” Lexi asked with a giggle.
She didn’t know why she found this amusing. She just couldn’t hold it in.
“I’m not seeing anyone,” he told her stiffly.
“But you are or else you wouldn’t be acting like this.”
“I also wouldn’t be here with you, would I?”
Lexi snorted. “Yes!”
“Well, I know you’re worried, but you can stop. It’s not serious. Just something fun,” he said, raising his eyebrows.
“Uh-huh. So, what is she like? What does a girl have to do to hold your interest?”
“I’m looking at it,” he said, staring her down.
Lexi’s cheeks heated at the comment, but she pushed forward. “Are you saying that she’s like me?”
“No, she’s nothing like you. That’s why it’s not serious.”
Abby’s Review 5+++++ Stars
A huge fantastic five unbelievable stars! Avoiding Temptation may have just encroached on my list of top reads for 2013. Yep loved it that much. I was afraid to read this. Sometimes with sequels or conclusions, they don’t measure up to the original. I saw some good reads reviews that said this too. Well guess what, I know opinions are like assholes and all that junk, everybody has one but those reviews are just wrong. Maybe, those people didn’t love the rest of the books as much, cause this one, right here, was a perfect fricken ending.
In the end I wouldn’t have changed a thing in Lexi’s story. She had to go through the pain and hard ache to get to where she needs to be. At about 80% in in a a crying mess. My heart ached and felt full and I knew that what I was reading was exactly how it should be.
Side note, I’m not a fan of third person but guess what. K.A. Linde’s writing style for this is in third person. She does it so well, I forgot that it’s in third and really felt like I was reading first. Flawless!
