So here we are. The final instalment in The Calling Me series featuring the story of Luke and Ashleigh. Wow, what an amazing finale it was, too! I can’t help thinking about this story and how it had my stomach churning as the story progressed, and how it was going to finally piece together. We know how Ashleigh has always been in love with Luke since a young age, and we also know it has been unrequited until Luke realised that his feelings ran deeper for Ashleigh. All he needed to do was convince her of that. This series has it all. Angst, love and sizzling hot scenes; in fact, I thought book three was the hottest of the whole series.
Luke is still busy trying to persuade Ashleigh of his intentions. He know what he wants, he’s serious about starting a relationship with her and his feelings run deep. Ashleigh is warming to the idea, and so they start being like any ordinary couple dating rather than being two good friends.
Quote: Luke ~ “Ashleigh, thank you for a agreeing to come out with me tonight. I’ve had a great evening, and I’d really like to see you again. Are you free on Saturday, all day?”
Ashleigh ~ “Thank you for a wonderful time, and I would love to see you again on Saturday.”
Now inseparable and regardless of whether they’re supposed to be doing the dating process or not, their feelings move up to another level as they can’t seem to keep their hands of each other. So what’s stopping them from making their relationship public? Their main concern is telling everybody, especially Haven who is Luke’s sister and Ashleigh’s best friend. They just decide to announce it what better way instead of gathering safety in numbers. The three of them have always been extremely close, and the reaction is not at all what they expected.
Quote: Ashleigh ~ “You’re okay with this? I need you to be good with this. I won’t lose either of you.”
The natural progression is seal their relationship and there are surprises along the way. I thought that at first they were moving along somewhat quickly but in hindsight, and understanding their story more as I read on, this wasn’t to be the case at all. I loved how the story evolved bringing a fantastic conclusion that I never would have guessed. It had me smiling from ear to ear and sighing a big ah… so sweet! The romantic in me was happy with the outcome. I still wanted to shake Ashleigh at times with her little insecurities; however, I understood them. These two are positively my favourite characters.
Although it is the end of Ashleigh and Luke’s story, I’m hoping we’ll get glimpses of their lives in Beth’s story. Maybe a novella featuring them with Haven, Jake and Beth would be great because I’d just love to know more. It’s a well-known fact I am a huge fan of Louise and I am blown away by her story telling every time, but I absolutely loved this series. It seemed so much hotter and romantic. I’m going to revisit this series fairly soon. Well-deserved five stars.
