“I thought my life with Sarah was the culmination of human possibility. But now I know there’s an even higher peak – and the idea of losing what I’ve seen scares the living shit out of me.”

This was The Culmination of The Club Series by Lauren Rowe and what a finale for us die hards. As usual this book was full of Lauren Rowe’s witty humour that had me in hysterics at times but this was also perfectly balanced with some intensely emotional scenes too. If you are a sappy cow like me, you will need tissues. If you love Jonas Faraday, you will only love him more and maybe you will fall in love with the wise old one Josh Faraday too (not Plato, but he has some seriously good lines in here too!). I adore Laure Rowe’s writing style, she never fails to amuse me and move me.

“You wanna steal Harry Styles’ eighteen year old virginity?”
“Yeah, good thing I’d only have to go back in my time machine by two years. Probably wouldn’t even get jet lag.”

As usual the story of Jonas and Sarah is hot, emotional, beautiful and perfect; these two are so well suited it is scary. These two are soul mates, they are head over heels in love with each other and literally need the other to live, they have that all-consuming love and it is one that everyone aspires to. This is one of those stories where I have to keep my lips zipped too, as much as I would love to gush about what happens in this book, but this final instalment needs to be read blind so that you can experience the plethora of emotions that I went through too.

This book has it all and by the end you will have known that you have ridden the most hellacious of roller coasters, this book has it all and Lauren Rowe takes no mercy with your emotions. There are some amazing highs and some tragic lows with that smattering of wit so that you can try to regain your senses and stabilise your fraught emotions.

“All I can say is I feel it, too. But I just choose to ignore it and enjoy the ride – unlike you, Mr. Look for Unhappiness Under Every Fucking Rock.”

As usual this book should have melted my kindle, we have some intense and scorching scenes between this couple but what I loved the most was how far their journey had come full circle, how both characters had evolved throughout this series and most of all how far Lauren Rowe’s voice has come. Lauren Rowe has an extremely unique style and is not for everyone, but for me her writing is refreshing, it is over the top, it is hilarious but most of all it is still emotive, not many can blend so many styles and still nail it and Lauren Rowe did just that...nailed it.

“...a living, breathing, beautiful beast of a man, in every sense of the word – and anyone who says differently needs to answer to me. Even if that person is you.”

While this book was bittersweet as it marked the end of my journey with the Faradays, I cannot wait to see what Lauren Rowe delivers next. I have now read all her books and have loved them all, so now I am waiting...waiting for the next bunch of characters to take over my heart and head, come on Lauren Rowe, bring it on!

“Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.”
