Okay, so Miss Chatterley, Part 4: Spent ties up the series nicely. Maybe in fact a little too nicely. Spent picks up where Torn, book three left off. I am now back to understanding Connie and feeling for her. But if I had to pick sides, my loyalty would be and has always been with Cliff.
I can't say that I went into reading Spent with any idea of what was going to happen. Wait, that's not true. I went in thinking that Connie's inability to grow a pair was going to blow up in her face. I went in thinking that EVERYONE was playing poor Cliff. I didn't expect the level of deceit to go as far as it was alluded to. I guess the old saying of don't hate the player, hate the game is true. But I still want to hate several characters.
The Miss Chatterley series shows what can happen when you lose yourself to someone else and their dreams, sacrificing your dreams for theirs. It's a story of actually learning what it means to love someone and discovering that love and sex are not one and the same.
In Spent, Connie's affair comes to light with a violent outcome. Truths are discovered and realizations are made. I don't want to be too judgmental of the characters so I understand that I need to suspend reality just a little bit. I just think the timeline for the ending resolution happened too quickly.

The last installment was riveting to the very end! Connie's decides to end her affair with Oliver but of course all bad things come to light! Ivy helps Cliff to see the betrayal first hand. Will Connie and Cliff be able to overcome this? Logan Belle writes Connie and Cliff as a couple you can relate too. Not all relationships are perfect. This was obvious throughout all 4 installments. Life happens and you need to deal. How you decide is up to you. Connie made her own decisions and must atone for them. Cliff isn't perfect and knows this. The ending of this series is so amazing! It left me thinking about the characters for hours afterwards. Miss Chatterley was the first books that I read from Logan Belle and definitely wont be the last!!Was this review helpful?

Logan Belle has written an amazing four part story that had me riveted to my seat until I was done reading. Connie Chatterley is a conflicted character and the writing conveys the emotion realistically making the Connie relatable to the reader even though we may not agree with her actions. She is flawed, but who isn’t. The story speaks to a deep loneliness and the mistakes we make when we don’t communicate effectively with our partners. It speaks to trust in people that only think of their own interests. It speaks to deep relationships as well as ones that are carnal and don’t even touch the surface of emotion. The sexy scenes broke the temperature gage, especially the ones with some of the secondary characters. Overall, I felt I read a fulfilling story with a great balance of elements and nothing in excess. Definitely a writer to follow. I can’t wait to see what’s next for Miss Belle.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

"SPENT is about aftermath and forgiveness, but also about second chances." ~Under the Covers
SPENT is about aftermath and forgiveness, but also about second chances. While I was torn reading the story as to what outcome I wanted for Cliff and Connie, the author did a perfect job with it.
Emotions fly high and betrayal cuts deep. I felt really bad for Cliff in this one because not only was he betrayed by the woman he loves, but also in business. SPENT is his time to regroup and reinvent himself. Maybe go back to basics and regroup.
I especially liked that this was not a gratuitous second chance and immediate forgiveness. Connie had the time apart to think about what she did. To see where she went wrong. And to realize how she hurt not only others, but herself as well.
When I read the ending, I was happy with it. Happy with how it ended, how they got there and the promise for their future. It felt real. And that's what was most important.
For fans of serials, you have to read this one! And even if you're not a fan, they're all out now and there's only 4 parts!! So at a whopping $3.96 for the whole story, this is definitely worth it.
