Good series. This (third) book gets 3 stars instead of 4 because of the ending. Did it really end with the number "seven". I thought I was missing the ending. I archived it. I even bought it again on my phone with my Kindle app. I have never read a book with a worse ending. It was incomplete like something was missing. Please help. Was that really how the book ended or was there a publishing error.

Featuring a classic bad boy and good girl idea with her own twist, Castile delivers a very promising series that involves more plot than just the classic "does he love me?" question. - Nova @ Musings of a Blogder
Not going to lie, I read all 3 books in 3 days nights. Miss Mia Castile should feel VERY guilty about making me lose about 2 hours of sleep reading each book on my iPod.
If I had just finished the book and I was typing the review right afterward, I'd honestly say "this book is perfect, 5 stars". It's funny how a lot of my reads are like that and then I actually start thinking about what I thought was really good. And I realize that I'm wrong, it isn't all that good, it's actually quite terrible.
From the testimonial at the top, you may know what I'm going to say. I really liked this series and it really drew me in. I have this "thing" for bad boys and good girls, just because I'd like to refer to myself as a girl with the bad boy attitude (minus the drugs, tattoos and drinking.. oh and fighting...) I can really connect with the bad boy and even the good girl because I have my moments.
It was one of those really quick reads because the entire thing just brushed me right by. I was completely divulged into the story and it was like I was drowning, but I didn't need saving.
One thing I really didn't like was the transfer from book 2 to 3. From the description, it says that Chase was in a coma but it doesn't say how, even in the third book. That was something that bothered. All we know is what happened to give Chase an injury and even though he seemingly recovers, he is sent to the hospital some time after the "incident". We, as readers, don't know what happened.
Chase lost his memory, he forgot why he ever loved Lacey in the first place and deluded himself into thinking that he still loves his ex-girlfriend It kind of made me angry, how there were so many problems and reading it actually made me sad. I almost couldn't read it, in fear of the fact that there wouldn't be a happy ending
After actually analyzing, I realized a lot of flaws. The major one was to do with the spelling. I think this happened a few times, but one example of what happened was that there was a spelling of "Lacy" when obviously there is an E!
Another thing that really wasn't all that good was some of the dialogue. It was all really stiff in my opinion and I thought that some of it sounded out of character. That being said, some of the time, I found that the dialogue wasn't believable and because of that, I didn't connect with the characters.
In the first 2 books, we get a taste of Chase's personality and I fell in love with it because he's got my "I care for the people I love" attitude. When Chase lost his memory, he also lost the personality I and many other readers fell in love with. He was stripped of his kindness and all that's left was the jerk-ish "bad boy" persona that he grew from.
There wasn't actually anything wrong with the novel, it was just that after reading it, I faced realization that I really didn't connect with the characters at all. I've never experienced pain quite like Lacey's and Chase was no longer the caring bad boy that we all grew to love. There was nothing about him that was likeable save the fact that we were all hoping and praying that the old Chase was in there somewhere.
So if you're looking for a series that twists good girl and bad boy, this is definitely the series for you.
