*Spoiler free review*
Book 1 and 2 must be read first!
Absolution brings us the highly anticipated conclusion of the Grace trilogy. In book 1, I was #TeamSol. In book 2 I was #TeamLevi and now in book 3, I was one hundred percent #TeamGrace. Autumn Grey delivers with an emotional impact and made me fall in love with these characters even more.
This trilogy was an angsty adventure with two of my favorite tropes: forbidden romance and love triangles. I will say that this third book is definitely low on the angst compared to the others. There also isn’t much drama and indecision on the love triangle part either. It’s pretty clear who Grace will end up with very early on in the book. I’ll admit I was a bit disappointed at first because I went into this book with the expectation of experiencing all the crazy, foreboding and overemotional moments that a love triangle usually brings. However, once I realized where the author was taking this story, I settled in and enjoyed the sweet, growing romance.
I really enjoyed Grace’s character growth during this series. After the car accident at the end of book 2, Grace really struggles with guilt for indirectly putting Levi and Sol in harm’s way. She is brave enough to start therapy and discovers a lot about herself in the process. Her leading man is as always so sweet, so supportive and so encouraging.
There were so many tender and romanctic moments in this book that bring all the feels!
“Love is not perfect. We are not perfect, but you are perfect for me, Gracie.”
Sigh! Swoon! *Holds heart*
This couple’s love story is messy and complicated and their relationship was judged harshly by some. They persevered though and held on tight to their undeniable connection. I did feel like there was something missing in the plot of this third book, a lack of conflict if you will. However, I loved experiencing every moment of their turmoil through this series and now getting their beautiful happliy-ever-after.
3 stars for Book 3
4 Stars for the entire trilogy
