And they lived happily ever after …

That’s where the typical romance ends. For Bo and Ember Cavanaugh, however, the “I do’s” are just the beginning.

On the heels of a wildly successful tour with The Six, Bo and Ember are offered the musical opportunity of a lifetime. A cross-country move back to the Cavanaugh estate holds promises, old friends, and feelings they thought were long since buried. 

In the middle of the whirlwind that is their professional life, Bo and Ember try to establish a solid and loving home. Life, though, doesn’t stay in the promises of “happily ever after.” 

In the final installment of the November Blue series, excitement, temptation, loss, and the struggle over what love means forces the couple to strip it all away and focus on what it means to be soul mates, what it means to be married, and what it means to be … 

Bo & Ember.

TeriLyn's Thoughts: **Bo & Ember generously provided by the author in exchange for an honest review**

The beauty that makesBo & Ember is infectious.I’ve been a fan of this series since Ten Days of Perfect was released to the world. After immediately falling hard for these characters I’ve re-read the books several times and plan to re-read it again as a complete series. I saw through the angst, betrayals, heart breaks, and tearsrevealing a powerful, epic love story of triumph. Andrea Randall makes us believe in soulful connections and the divine powers bestowed upon us because of them reminding us that even through tragedy the faith you hold in your relationship will carry you.

Reading the conclusion to Bo & Ember’s journey equates to watching a storm brew followed by the most amazing of rainbows.Told from both Bo & Ember’s POV’s, you get the very essence of their characters but laced with great maturity andresponsibility to each other.Randall’s exquisite writing demonstrates what it means to be married for Bo & Ember creating an even more soulful bond that runs bone deep between these two; figuring out how to navigate their connection through unchartered waters together as a strong unit. It’s mentioned in the story how the music the make defines “back to the basics…all voices and instruments”. That’s exactly how I would describe Bo & Ember – back to the basics of romance and partnership. At the core of their story lies a beautiful friendship between two souls who have met their equal. Bo’s charm and intrinsic romance is ever present; Ember’s beautiful soul and wit, as well.

Bo & Ember walks a line; it’s a balancing act of struggle, understanding, and need. The highs are really high and the lows are really low. The plot masterfully melts your heart and conversely slices right through it. Bo & Ember’s journey through the next phase of their lives will gut you with heartbreak seeping into your soul. Ms. Randall’s precise crafting of the plot leaves you breathless. But as with every dark night, a new dawn arises.

This storyenvelops everything we’ve come to love about the series: soul, love, humor, drama, angst. Each and every character we’ve met in the series makes an appearance no matter how slight; all of their stories coming full circle. The natural progression of the relationships between all of these characters and the maturity they have reached with each other is as wistful as it is beautiful. Take Ten Days of Perfect and even Reckless Abandon and strip each of them their insecurities, add maturity, faith and complete trust and you getBo & Ember. The series wouldn’t be what it is without the beautiful development of the relationships between Bo, Ember and the secondary characters.

When I finished this book in the wee hours of the morning I felt such joy.I’m sad of course, to see the series end and say goodbye but the peace trumps the sadness.To me, Bo & Ember are the ultimate goal; a representation of pure soul, pure love, pure light – true and everlasting love. My brain immediately started humming a very special songto methe minute I read Bo’s last words on Ember: Van Morrison’s “Into the Mystic”. I sang to myself quietly, with a notion that gave me goose bumps: Bo rocked Ember’s gypsy soul, just like way back in the days of old letting their souls and spirits fly together – always – floating into the mystic; pretty profound ending for me, striking deep, leaving happiness and peace in its wake. So, Ms. Andrea Randall, thank you – from the bottom of my gypsy soul – for the beautiful journey that brought me Bo & Ember and for the pure perfection of Bo & Ember.I’m forever a fan.

Favorite Quote:
“I’d never been more in love with her than that exact moment. Except the second after.And the one after that. Somewhere in my soul, I knew that feeling would continue forever. Each second, as they all had, would be better than the last.”

One more for fun:
“Jesus, Ember. Most guys accomplish something and they go out and get piss-faced drunk or buy a car. Not your husband. He wants to marry you again.”
