Love this review by Erin Spencer, Southern Belle Book Blog
You know that bittersweet moment when one of your favorite series’ ends? It’s wrapped up in a gorgeous little package, with all of the t’s crossed and i’s dotted, but your heart still hurts? That’s me tonight. I’m not ready to let the Hale Brothers go. I. Just. Can’t. Do it! As far as conclusions to a series go though, Unforgettable Sun was top of the line. It was emotional in the best and worst (not bad, just a bit painful) sort of ways, and it was everything I hoped it would be. Andrews absolutely did not disappoint.
I couldn’t wait to start Matt’s story. You fall in love with his character in the previous books, because he was so young and went through so much in his short years. Unforgettable Sun fast-forwards over time a bit, and you’ll see him as an utterly broken man. It’s heartbreaking, and you’ll feel for him from the get go. If there’s one thing above all else that Kathryn Andrews is amazing at (there are PLENTY of others though. She’s a rock star), her ability to make you not only connect, but truly love her characters is it. You feel Matt’s pain, isolation, and internal conflict. You’re there with him as he tries to make the right decisions, and you’ll feel it from the top of your head to the tips of your toes. Although most of the emotion will be right in your heart – demolishing it, mending it, and feeling the outpouring of love from Elle. I love that Andrews doesn’t place an easy, plain heroine with Matt. Elle has her own issues and secrets, but she also feels…out of sort. Not in the right place. Unhappy with life. However you want to say it, but you see what I mean. Seeing these two sort their individual problems, with no shortage of hesitation and frustration but with the support and love of one another is hopeful and so very beautiful. I just fell in love with these two together, as well as apart. They go through many trying times, but handle it exactly as you’d hope they would.
As always, Andrews is so classy, so eloquent, and her writing is flawless. In each story, she brings something new to the table but it always has that Kathryn feel. Unforgettable Sun is no different. She’s so great at telling a story in a way that blends emotion, humor, and passion perfectly. She doesn’t need an abundance of cuss words or overly detailed sex scenes. She can suck you in and leave you biting your nails from just the emotion on the pages.
And and and…we get to see Drew and Beau! Especially Beau. *Insert happy dance here!* Ah, my sweet, romantic Hale Brothers. I just love them so. You really dive much deeper into what Matt and Beau’s relationship specifically entails. They really make for the most wonderful family, and their love and acceptance of one another shines through.
Overall, as sad as it makes me for it to be over, it ended perfectly. It all comes full circle, and questions that you may have had from book one or two will be answered. It’s a whirlwind romance that will take your breath away. I’m so in love with Matt, Elle, and the entire family, and can’t wait to see parts of their lives popping up in future books. I’m just not ready to let go. Good thing books can always be reread, so the Hale Brothers are here to stay. Whew.
