    UPDATE 12/12/13: I finished this last night and, well after *THAT*, I can't write a spoiler free review. If you don't want to know, don't read anything in the spoiler tag. It's going to be a vent session and will definitely ruin the story for anyone who hasn't finished the book.This is your final warning!(view spoiler)[Okay. I just want to start off by saying that I found this book to be absolutely pointless. The remaining part of the story - basically just Lexi's choice - was so drawn out. Ther [...]

    The final book in the 'Avoiding' series, 'Avoiding Temptation' provides the answers to all of the questions that I had. At last, I can put my frustrations to rest. Finally, I know how things work out for Lexi.I don't want to spoil this series for anyone, so I won't say exactly who Lexi ends up withor if she ends up with anyone at all. However, I will say that if you're a fan of angst that this is one of the most angst-filled series that I've ever encountered. I could not believe the massive amou [...]

    UPDATE 12/11/13: Review now posted!Oh boy. Where do I even begin?Let me start by saying SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS ahead. STOP reading right now if you don't want to know what happens in this book. I do not feel like spoilering out my whole review and I also can't seem to find the f*cks to give to do so.Orwait a minute.There's one:That would be the one word review to this book. Bute I need to purge myself of the rage this series has invoked, I will explore my thoughts more in depth.Seriously, SP [...]

  • Taryn

    No more than 3 stars- And that's pushing it.I had a review written, was ready to push publish, but at the last minute couldn't. I've decided I won't be posting one. I just can't bring myself to talk about a series that I hold dear to my heart in a bad light the way my review was written. But just like I said with Following Me- Get new betas. Makes me wonder who read this and if they had any constructive criticism at all other than love for it. How did no one see the HUGE MASSIVE issues with this [...]

  • Jennifer Kyle

    Has Lexi learned nothing from the first two books?Don’t answer that phone!!Kyla Linde delivered one hell of a crazy ride! “Lose Jack and be with Ramsey.Be with Jack and lose Ramsey.Be by herself without either of them.Move back to New York, start a new life, rebound-fuck John all over again.Run from her past for a future that couldn’t even begin to handle her emotional baggage.”Right from the first chapter my jaw hit the floor and I wondered where Kyla was taking me and do I really want [...]

  • Christy

    4 ‘I have no clue who’s team I’m on’ stars!Going into Avoiding Temptation, I was scared. The last book scarred me. I went into this with no team. Much like Lexi, I was undecided. Who is she going to pick? What the hell is going to happen?This review isn’t going to be like a ‘normal’ review. I can’t review the way I normally do without spoiling too much, so here it goes LexiLexi honestly doesn’t want anyone to get hurt. She had what she had with John, she is trying to be a good [...]

  • Vibha★

    2.5 starsTo be honest,at this point,I'm just glad it's over.I don't even think I'll be able to write a proper review for this one.No,just no.This book drove me INSANE!What is it with these characters and their hugely messed up lives?It was one crazy ride.I was Team Ramsey in the beginning but I'm not too sure now.I was really pissed at Lexi because of her indecisiveness.All those "Am I happy?" questions infuriated me to no end.(view spoiler)[Ramsey didn't deserve what happened to him in this boo [...]

  • It's just me Shelly B

    "People come in and out of your life all the time. They shape and mold you like clay, and then the water washes away the edges."All of these characters.Lexi, Jack, Ramsey and John all hold a little piece of my heart. I like them ALL for different reasons and through out this series they have also pissed me off for different reasons. However I have always loved them through everything. Triangles are a tough read sometimes because she can only pick ONEunless you get lucky with a ménage someone is [...]

    3 stars. *spoilers*This is just a personal reflection of my feelings after I read this book. This could be an entirely wonderful experience for the next reader, so I hope you do give the story a chance and go forth and experience it for yourself.But simplyr me. of it did not work. And its not because of who she ended up with in the end, because I was happy that they finally got it together. It was how they came together as well as the execution of the story that left me very disappointed.From th [...]

  • R.S. Burnett

    I'm actually afraid to read any future books by K.A Linde. Not sure I can put myself through all this again!Loved all five books though, even if they did make me temporarily insane.

  • Tough Critic Book Reviews

    I just wanted to soak in a relaxing vodka bath and brush my teeth with XanaxI did not go into this book lightly. In fact, I think there was a lot of cursing involved. At some point, even my emotions said, "shit". I just wanted to soak in a relaxing vodka bath and brush my teeth with some Xanax. I wanted somebody to hold me and I hadn't even started the book yet.Here's where my review gets tricky. My emotions are a tell all.I can't share too much about the state of my feelings because my emotions [...]

  • Zizz

    To say that I am not a happy camper is putting it mildly. I will now hide everything behind spoiler tags to be fair(view spoiler)[Let's put it out there first: I am Team Ramsey. And so this review might be tainted by that fact. BUT I WILL TRY TO BE AS OBJECTIVE AS POSSIBLE IN MY REVIEW AND REFRAIN FROM PUTTING GIFS AS I ORIGINALLY INTENDED TO. From the early stages of the book, IMO it was obvious what the desired ending was and that instead of letting the story naturally progress and write itsel [...]

  • Jenn

    Okay that's it. I'm over this book and these characters. I think this whole series should have been done in two MAYBE three books and no extra side books. This whole relationship with Jack and Lexi was ridiculous. Jack's reasoning's were stupid. He wasn't redeemable, EVER! This is one unhappy reader. I have a lot to say but will hold back, seeing as there are plenty of other readers who will want to read this book with out it being ruined completely for them if they see my review in the way I wo [...]

  • A.L. Jackson

    My favorite of all the Avoiding Series. I might have done a little fist-pump at the end. This girl was happy. Great job in wrapping up an amazing series K.A. Linda!

  • Hail

    Team Jack!Sometimes, a happy ending to a story isn't meant to be happily EVER after. Maybe it's just happy 'for now' - not 'for EVER'. This is my happy ending for Lexi and Jack and this series. And maybe after running off into the sunset and trying out a REAL relationship, things will go horribly wrong and Jack will dog Lexi out YET AGAIN. That's ok. I think Lexi and Jack are meant for eachother. Let's face it: Jack is a player and a dog, but Lexi is no innocent angel herself. As much as I wante [...]

    "People come in and out of your life all the time. They shape and mold you like clay, and then the water washes away the edges."An intense, angst-filled journey comes to an end. Throughout this read, my heart was racing and my head was spinning. As a reader, especially when it comes to a love triangle, you have to have faith in the story the author has to tell. In my opinion, regardless of which team you go into this book pulling for, Kyla creates a compelling story that should leave everyone sa [...]

  • Michelle

    5 I-can’t-believe-my-Kindle-survived-this-series-starsThis has to be one of the most difficult reviews to write. I am going to try my hardest to avoid giving anything away for those who are either in the midst of reading the final book or those who’ve been waiting to start this series. There has been no question that I am a proud member of Team Jack, but that in no way made me feel like there was only one path for Lexi to find her happily ever after. Each man offered Lexi a different ending. [...]

    October 3rdOk, so I have been DYING for this book since I finished Avoiding Responsibility last year. The first two books left me ABSOLUTELY wreckedbut I'm kind of peeved about the blurb. Why is Lexi juggling the burgeoning affections of three different men? I don't know about anyone else, but when I finished Avoiding Responsibility, I was absolutely elated that Lexi had actually stuck up for herself and put Jack in his place and then left with Ramsey.Honestly, Team Ramsey all the way. If she en [...]

    DNF @ 30%I can't do thisI'm so ashamed of myselfI can't endure the heartbreak that Ramsey is going to have to go through.I can't endure the hatred I'm going to feel towards Lexi.I gave #1 and #2 both 5 stars but I can't wrap my head around this -----Why stay friends with a guy who has been a major asshole to you?Why agree to marry another guy when you just aren't "feeling" it?I wanted Jack but I switched sides to Ramsey. no noI know this book will frustrate me and get my blood pressure boiling.I [...]

  • Spoiler Whore of Pettysburg

    These 3 stars are not because of who she stayed with. It's because of HOW she stayed with him. SPOILERSI will admit that I went straight to the end and read who Lexi stayed with. I could give a flying fuck what anybody thinks about that. Did it take away the element of surprise? NO. I'm Spoiler Whore. Doesn't bother me the least if I know spoilers or not. I'm not gonna delve into the story. I'm just going to get to my fucking problem on how Lexi ended up with Jack.Jack and Lexi would never have [...]

  • Sharon ∞❥ is an emotional book junkie ❥∞

    3.5 ★'sMy Thoughts:✦ Well, it's been a long wait for me to get to this conclusion, over 1 1/2 years, and I have to say that while I liked how it ended, there were just too many things that bothered me. ✦ I just really do not like the going back and forth from the present to the past. It feels choppy and I find myself going back and forth rereading what happened last. ✦ Jackwhile I have to say that I liked his improvements, I didn't like what prompted him. I was happy that he finally got [...]

  • Renee

    “No matter what we might want, we have to live with our mistake and live with our past”.Writing this review without spoiling the book is going to be little challenging, but I shall try. If you’re looking for a book filled with drama, mind games, wild angst, heartache and love triangles than The Avoiding Series delivers precisely that and more. This story was flawed. If you're expecting a hearts and flowers kind of story nicely wrapped with a bright pink bow, then maybe give this book a mis [...]

  • MELISSA *Mel Reader*

    (BR with Patty)*Most of the Jack pics and quotes in my review were posted before I read the book, because I am Team Jack! Not meant as a spoiler of any kind, just showing my Jack love! lol*I thoroughly enjoyed this series and loved all the angst, drama, love, and variety of smoking hot men! Lexi was one lucky girl to have such quality men fall for her. I really could see her with all three of them. Jack I felt was her soul mate, but I also fell for Ramsey and John. I credit the author's writing [...]
