I met the woman of my dreams when her husband paid me to sleep with her.
I won the woman of my dreams when I proved to her I wasn’t the man she believed me to be.
Now, I plan on keeping the woman of my dreams by ending her husband, once and for all.
I’ve done some terrible things in the past, but this will be my darkest deed.
Regardless, if Lena is still by my side at the end, it will all be worth it.

This is the fourth and final part of The Private series. When I began this part, I was not aware that it was the last installment and was intrigued to see where the characters would be taken as the previous book was not left with a cliff hanger. However, I needed my Preston Reid fix to see if they would ever get some closure on this rollercoaster ride. I was not disappointed at all.
Lena and Preston are now living in Hawaii and all seems to be going well with their relationship. The love and undeniable strong attraction these two have for one another is palpable, but there is still the issue of Lena still being married to the conniving Derrek. Just when you think it’s all going smoothly, there is a curveball. Derrek yet again has got himself mixed up in huge problems due to his greed, and Preston has also been dragged into it by an aggravated party, namely Edgar. All he has ever cared about was keeping Lena safe, love her and more so now.
Quote ~ Preston: “The last tail I had on Derrek he was sitting pretty in the Caribbean with his mistress, sitting on a shit load of money.”
Edgar: “That’s my money he’s sitting on.”
Preston gears himself up to tell Lena what trouble is heading their way courtesy of Derrek. He does not relish telling her; nevertheless, he did promise her that after the lies and secrets previously, he would always be honest and up front. Knowing what I know is their world is about to be turned upside down. Once more, Preston agonizes over what he has been requested to do.
Quote ~ Preston: “Lena, please, we need to talk.”
Lena: “We can talk, but we can only say dirty words.”
Preston finally informs Lena exactly what he is being forced to get involved with and how he is doing it to keep her safe. Lena is insistent on staying with him to help with the situation they find themselves in. Even though he is reluctant, he can’t bear being apart from the woman he loves. Apart from the complications these two face, the passion these two share hottens up.
Quote ~ Preston: “Fucking Christ, you’re so tight. I love slamming into you while you’re still clenching. It feels fucking amazing.”
I do not want to give much more of the plot away but as I read on, discovering how they were going to resolve the dilemma they’d found themselves in had my heart beating faster and faster. The anticipation of a plan Preston puts in place even made me as anxious as them. I have been rooting for these two to finally be set free of their past and have a future together. But as I read on, it felt hopeless.
Quote ~ Preston: “It was the only way I could think of to end this, once and for all.”
Quote ~ Lena: “I get it. I just hope it worked.”
I thoroughly enjoyed this series. It was very different to what I have reviewed before as I went into this with no knowledge of what it was about or who the author is. I was kept entertained throughout with this suspenseful, mysterious tale. I’m a massive fan of Mr Preston Reid, the private investigator, and Lena Bellows, his love interest. It was refreshing to have something a little different from the norm stories out there, and Anie certainly has a new fan in me. I would like to thank her for a terrific series. It was an absolute pleasure observing it unfold, and an extremely satisfactory ending left a big smile on my face!
