My Review:
From the very beginning, I have loved this series, but this final book. OMG! *sob* This was such the PERFECT ENDING for this wonderful series. It's no secret that I get emotional when my series' end, but this book....just whoa. I cried in the prologue. I cried at the 42% mark. And I cried from the 80% mark on til the end. Bravo to Mari and Jayne. You reached writing perfection with this one. Just the perfect balance of emotion, fun entertainment, and super hot sexual chemistry and romance thrown in. I LOVED THIS BOOK!!

This book is about Sawyer. The youngest of the twins and the four brothers and probably the brother we have seen the least of throughout the series because he's been in the Coast Guard and deployed. As a result of his job and commitments, everyone has kept his father's condition from him. He has no idea that his dad is dying.

Leah is a kindergarten teacher that grew up in Compton's Pass. She had a really difficult childhood and had to take responsibility for lots way earlier than she should have. She has a reputation as a sweet, good girl. As a result, she has not been able to indulge in her fantasy life involving BDSM. She takes a trip to LA to visit a friend and to live out that fantasy. She is less than thrilled to find her childhood friend and protector, Sawyer, at that party where he immediately claims her as his sub.

In the midst of the fantasy weekend, Leah says something about Sawyer's fathers illness and his world falls apart at the seams....and from there on out, I think I cried about every other chapter.

Leah and Sawyer were just the perfect couple with the perfect story to end this series with. I loved them and the fact that they have always been friends because when things get crazy, it just makes sense that their relationship continue for Sawyer's sake. He needs that output. My heart ached for him and his scenes after finding out about his father were so emotional and sexually charged. This is one alpha male who is devastatingly hurt. You can't help but fall in love with him and Leah is just his perfect match.

There was so much to this final story and all of it was absolutely beautiful. But the absolute best scene in the entire book is when the four brothers revealed their tattoos to their father. The entire series is built around these tattoos that they all received when they turned 18, but their parents never knew about them. Just the absolute perfect way to finish these books.

I have loved this series and know that I will re-read it over and over again. Luckily, these books are coming out in print which will make that even easier to do. Thank you Jayne and Mari for sharing the Compass Brothers with us. I have enjoyed my many hours spent with them.

The series:
1. Northern Exposure- B+
2. Southern Comfort- A
3. Eastern Ambitions- B
4. Western Ties- A+
