Overview

If the truth sets one free, why does Lily Jacobs feel so trapped?

She's learned doing the right thing isn't always best and now she is living the consequences of her greatest sacrifice. Every day since Grayson Lee left is one she wishes he hadn't. Years have gone by since their friendship turned to more and then was eradicated by Lily alone; enough time for their young love to fade. Only it hasn't, not for Lily.

Now he is back and seeing him is devastating to her at the same time it is rapture. She tries to accept that they cannot be together, but everything inside her shouts that they should be; that they only fit with each other. And so she has to accept the greatest truth of all: She loves him still. She loves him enough not to let him go this time.

I finally got around to reading this one. I remember the last one had a lot of drama and teen angst, which I liked but hated at the same time. I knew going in that there would be more of that, and I relished it. Lindy's stories always keep me hooked and I know I can always expect a good story from her. I wasn't disappointed with Complete, and all the drama made me roll my eyes a couple of times (out of exasperation). I liked that Grayson and Lily have matured somewhat since the last time I read about them. Before in Incomplete, they used to avoid communication when a good conversation would have cleared up some problems. This time around we see them opening up more and having a line of communication. Granted, there are some times when they try to pretend nothing is wrong, but I chalk that up to being human. I know characters cannot be perfect because we're all human and flawed. And those flaws are why I read stories from Lindy Zart. I especially loved the drama near the end because it was handled differently than other times I've read about that scenario. I'm glad Lily and Grayson managed to escape that particular trap. It was a satisfying end and for that reason I give Complete 5/5 Platypires.

This is a partial duel review for incomplete and Complete. In Complete, begins a few years later, this time from Lilly's point of view. After Lilly and Grayson's friendship evolved and changed, Grayson has come back, bringing with him everything that reminds Lilly of her feelings for him, and something else Lilly wasn't prepared for. And the electricity between them will take your breath away. Once again another beautiful story of Grayson and Lilly. You will laugh and cry and want to yell at them for putting up walls and everything in between. These books are about love, and how people try to protect themselves, and the one they love. How sometimes people do stupid things, how people hide from the truth. It's real. People will deny their hearts because of some reason not realizing that just communicating can make everything better. I see it all the time. It's something everyone does and experiences, whether they see it or not at the time (or ever,) it happens. Lindy does an amazing job! You will end up with a serious case of book hangover after these books, and it might last months... or possibly even longer. Rating: 4.5 out of 5

Complete by Lindy Zart 4 out of 5 Stars Picking up two years after Incomplete finished, Complete is told from Lily's POV rather than Greyson's. Having moved on in every way she could with a hole in place of her heart, Lily is living a life of work, friends, and following Greyson's career via the towns insistent nosiness.  Across the country, Greyson has become a chart topping heart throb with a soulful voice and a dark sadness that never leaves his eyes.  When the two meet again it is apparent that their love never died, but they don't know if they can move past the pain and distance to start over again or if it's possible to pick back up where they left off. I'm not sure if the feminine POV or the extended time with the characters helped, but this second book had so much more true feeling and intensity that I was looking for!  Zart gave both Lily and Greyson that soul searing, stop your breathe intense kind of love that is worth fighting for and makes you want to keep reading.  My only reason for not giving this book the full 5 stars is I started getting exasperated with Lily towards the end.  I like angst and know that it is a part of young love but she started getting a little too melodramatic before she had her realization that she was a player in the game and not a victim.  Once she decided that love is worth fighting for, I totally jumped back on team Lily...so don't let that small moment dissuade you from reading the this series!!  I am truly hoping Zart is going to give us a story about Mia and Ben!! **I was given a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review** Pepper, My Secret Book Spot

"Maybe that’s what love is – a little touch of insanity that makes us do and say things we otherwise wouldn’t." The book to complete this series had me in awe. IT WAS SO WORTH THE WAIT – thank goodness. I knew she left him to pursue his dreams, she loved him too much to have him settled for anything less than what he wanted to do. Even if it means letting him go, even if it means living without him. Learning to live without her best friend and the love of her life is a herculean task, she realized when it was already too late. She was now reaping the consequences of her actions, and it was not helping that it seems everyone is fondly reminding her of what she had lost. She got a job, something she had not seen doing – she was content but not happy. Then Grayson Lee came back, and it was heartbreaking to see him in the arms of the other. She tries to accept that the two of them aren’t meant to be together, and that she finally needed to move on. But the pull of their past, the sudden onslaught of stronger feelings and his presence was encouraging her to give it another try. That the two of them are meant to be together despite what happened in the past. Her love was never lost, she was still in love with him. But will that love be strong enough to fight for him this time? This was one book I have been looking forward to read since reading Incomplete last year. I wonder what would happen to this couple. Would they finally make it, or will time and distance drove them apart? Sometimes I wished that Lily was a little bit selfish and think of herself for once. I wished she would stop running away and face everything head start – maybe then, I would have been so sure that they would have their happy ending. But no, she had to be stubborn, she had to let him go, and now, she was suffering seeing him in the arms of another woman. It breaks my heart to see her standing there, and allowing it to happen rather than fighting for the man who is obviously still hopelessly in love with her. I mean, other people can see it – why not her, right? As for Grayson – did I tell you how I was dying to get inside his brain? I definitely wished for a dual POV that would allow me to enter his thoughts. Nevertheless, it didn’t make this novel less beautiful, so don’t worry. Grayson was now a famous rockstar. His dreams were already fulfilled, and despite the fact that he was dating another girl, there was no mistake that Lily would always be IT for him. Although he can still the pain of their break up years ago, he now understood why she needed to let him go. Now, it was time to win her back. Allowing her to run away was not an option. He will fight for her. He will fight for them. He will let her see that more than sacrifice, love is all about compromise. "That’s what love is about – doing what’s the best for the person you love even if it isn’t what’s best for you. " I love the couple, and the people that surrounds them, even those men who came in between them, and yes even Megan. No matter how much I wanted to hate this girl, she still manages to get my sympathy in the end. They have their own parts and stories in this last installment of the series, and everyone of them has a part in Lily and Grayson’s HEA. The wait, the anticipation – it was all worth it. Lindy Zart had my completely torn with INCOMPLETE but managed to bring it back together with COMPLETE. It was an amazing read about love, second chances, and forgiveness. Her words, as usual, had me enthralled and hooked with every pages. No one beats her dialogues.  Never expect love to be always great, sometimes it can be hell – but once you will get through all the trials that were thrown at your feet – your love will be stronger, and fiercer than ever. Love is not just about sacrifices and wanting to do the right thing for your partner, love is all about compromise, so that at the end of the day, both will have their happy ending. "Sometimes in life, you do things you don’t want to. Sometimes you sacrifice, sometimes you compromise. Sometimes you let go and sometimes you fight. It’s all about deciding what’s worth losing and what’s worth keeping." ¿Complimentary Copy was given in exchange for an honest review.¿

*I received an complimentary copy from the author for an honest review.* Plot-Two years later and Lily can't seem to get Grayson out of her mind. He is always with her and subconsiously every decision she makes, she thinks of him. She tried to move on and did date a few men but they never compared to Grayson. No one ever will. He was her best friend, soul mate, and finally her lover. Lily made the decision to push Grayson away thinking that was the best thing to do even though she was hurt in the process. A decision she has regretted since. Grayson returns home and Lily is angusihed to see that he is dating his manager Megan. She tries really hard to not like Megan but it is hard to not like someone who is so nice, kind, and has such great taste in shoes. Realizing that Grayson has moved on, Lily tries, once again, to do the same. Stone comes into the scene. A very blunt, sexy, and fun man yet Lily can't seem to see past what she had with Grayson to give Stone much of a chance. A few twists and turns later, Lily and Grayson make the biggest decisions of their lives. Will they be together or not? -I was so excited to read this book. After finishing Incomplete, I was left wanting more. Lily and Grasyon were meant for each other. Everyone knew they were meant to be together but they just kept hurting each other over and over. I found myself several times telling them to stop acting like kids and just tell the other that you love them and be done. I'm glad Lindy didn't just jump right in and do that because we may not have been able to meet Stone and he is a character all in himself. Fun, smart, witty, and sexy are how I would describe Stone. He was a nice addition to the Incomplete series. Overall, once again, Lindy Zart did not dissapoint. The book kept me wanting more and finally left me satisfied. If you were a fan of Lily and Grayson, you will love this book too!
