***ARC received for an honest review***

 “He gave me what I needed...he gave me everything I needed.”

This is one of those bittersweet reads as this is one series that I did not want to end. Marni Mann has that knack of endearing her characters to you so hard that you never want to let them go and that is exactly how I felt with Derek and Frankie, I didn’t want to say goodbye.

Derek Block was one of those characters that you couldn’t help but fall in love with. You knew he had issues from the start but with Frankie he began to learn to deal with them and throughout this series the growth in his character has been exponential. Frankie showed him that he could love and be loved and in this instalment his character exudes emotion and that is something that has taken a while for him to convey, it was a huge stepping stone for him and only made me love him all the more.

“He was the man I wanted to be with. The one I was falling in love with.”

In this instalment it is the culmination of their relationship, this is where the past becomes just that, the past and these two look forward to a future. They still have their issues to deal with and these are all tied up by the end. I was glad that this part of their story was not over in a flash and the suspense and intrigue continued till the end. Derek’s last bit of past was Randy and I am glad that he got his just desserts, finally.

As in true Marni Mann and Derek Block style this book had its fair share of steam, these two on a physical level cannot help but scorch your kindle, their connection oozes from the pages and seriously melts your panties. What this man can do is...well...ermmm...is there anything he cannot do? But seriously, their connection is palpable, my heart races with these two and that is when I know the author has got me, the characters have got me and it is one feeling I treasure when reading a book.

“...there was no longer any distance between us. I was breathing him in. Breathing in his love.”

This book was super emotional in places and had me in tears so you may need tissues but to see these two connect on such a higher level had me in happy tears too. This is what I love about Marni Mann’s writing, she never fails to deliver on that character connection and she somehow always manages to hit me in the heart. Even the very first book of hers I read many years ago had that impact hence why I have continued to read every single book since, she has become one of my auto buy authors.

“Maybe I wasn’t as alone as I thought. I had us.”

The Unblocked Series has been a fantastic read and one where I have looked forward to every instalment, if like me you have bought them piece meal then Episode 5 goes live today (25th August) but also if you have been saving yourself to read the whole series in one go, then Marni Mann is also releasing the total collection today too!

I cannot wait to see what Marni Mann delivers next; I for one will be at the front of the queue.
