I had a hard time getting in to this last installment in the Rock Kiss series. I didn’t connect as easily with Abe. He wasn’t as sympathetic a character to me. I also was loath to read the last book in the series since I’d enjoyed the series so much. I liked Sarah, but after hearing her whole story, I had difficulty believing that someone could survive as much as she had and still be sane and fully functioning. Sarah’s past life was pure hell, and after how Abe had treated her in their brief time together, it made me dislike him more. I did enjoy the wedding aspect of this book. I thought it referred to Molly and Fox’s wedding at the start of the story, but the title actually referred to the fact that all four band members got married over the course of this book. All their weddings were unique and beautiful in their uniqueness. The four heroines and four heroes pledging their lifelong love and commitment made this book worth the read.
