~ Review ~
4.5 Stars 

 This book was a great final book to this series.  I loved Shawn and he was my favorite from the first book. 

Shawn is struggling with keeping secrets from his friends. He sneaks away at odd times and then shoes up with bruises.  He doesn't want then to know what he does when he leaves, but that all changes one night when the girls show up where he is and sees him.  He is shocked and knows he needs to tell the guys before the girls do.  They all except what he does, but can he?  He also never noticed Christen until that night.  When she came to check on him he knew she was going to break him.  Can he find love?

Christen is known as the spoiled rich kid because if her parents.  Only her close friends know the 'real' her.  She is one of the most find to earth girls around.  She has wanted Shawn since the day she met him.  Though he never sees her.  And with his killer body why would he want her.  Will see get the courage to tell him her feelings?  Or will she let him slip away?

Jason and Nicole are still crazy as ever, but are still madly in love.  Though with the bomb shell dropped on them at the end of book two can they survive?

Carter and Mads have overcome a lot to be together.  Chris has caused them a lot of heartache.  Will they finally be out from under him?  Or will he finally succeed in destroying them?

This book was the conclusion to this series and I am sad.  I feel like it needed a little more. It almost felt too rushed.  I mean I needed a little more closer for Holly and I needed more from Shawn and Christen and Carter and Mads.  With that being said this is a must read, but you need to read the first two books in the Guarded Hearts series!!

He spins around, and before I know it, he has backed me against the wall. He slams his hands on either side of my head, trapping my hands with them, and then crushes his mouth to mine. I let out a gasp of surprise and he takes advantage, slipping his tongue into my mouth. His kiss is so frenzied and urgent, so full of need. It’s unlike anything I have ever experienced in my life. I’m not innocent—I’ve been kissed by plenty of guys—but never like this.
He’s taking complete control over me and dominating every sense of my being. He pulls back a little, biting down on my lower lip, causing me to moan with a mix of pleasure and pain. I open my eyes to see him staring at me with such desire that my insides warm. Before I know what’s happening, he releases my hands and speeds out the door.
I stand there, pressed against the wall, panting from the most soul shattering and mind-altering kiss I have ever experienced. When I finally catch my breath, I smooth out my hair and clothes, and then make my way back to the crowd. Shawn Matthews is the kind of guy that my dad had warned me to stay away from, but there is no way in hell that’s happening now.
