5*Review: BEAUTIFUL FINALE by Raine Thomas #comingsoon

A rock band. A reality show. A marriage on the rocks.
In the span of four months, Lily Montgomery has gone from touring with her best friend to marrying him. It feels like someone has stomped on the gas pedal that is her life. Right now she is more than ready to pump the brakes.

But that’s not how it works in the world of show business. Her new husband is off filming and recording more often than he is at home. He sees more of his beautiful co-star than his own wife. Lily is finding it harder and harder to distinguish between performing and reality, adding more stress to a marriage that the tabloids already wager won’t last the year.

Thank God for Jada Morgan.

Lily’s new assistant quickly becomes indispensable, covering The Void’s social media while Lily pursues her own writing. When Lily learns that Jada is temporarily rooming with Void guitarist, Xander Phillips, she isn’t concerned. Xander has hard-and-fast rules when it comes to relationships with women. The only way he’ll break Jada’s heart is if he breaks all of his rules.

Even with Jada’s support, Lily struggles to adjust to her new life. From her own personal stalker and ongoing family drama to the constant bombardment from the media, she’s quickly reaching her breaking point. She’s about to learn if marrying a rock star will result in a beautiful finale...or in absolute disaster.

My take...

I was once again blown away. This story, like the previous 3 in the series, was everything. Thomas could not have wrote a better ending to a spectacular series. 

I was happy that this one didn’t focus primarily on the reality show that the band filmed. Don’t get me wrong, I loved the books that did but it was a nice change where we didn’t have to see Lily play the gold digging girlfriend part. That is not who she is. She is our Lily Momilly. 

Jada and Xander’s storyline was a perfect slow burn, friends to lovers romance. I absolutely adored them. So much of them reminded me of Lily and Dane. They were easy to love from the start. 

Thomas’ writing was wonderfully done, her characters are family, and she closed out the House of Archer series flawlessly. I only wish I had time to go back and re-read the entire series again. 5 Impeccable Stars!!
