ARC Review: Thick & Thin by Eden Butler

26 Jul 2016

Book Title: Thick & Thin
Author: Eden Butler
Series: Thin Love #3
Release Date: August 31st, 2015
Genres: New Adult, Contemporary Romance
My love was thick.
Her faith was thin.
Somewhere in the middle is where life found us.

I claimed her when I was a boy.
I held her until I was a man.
She was my first thought every morning, my last smile at night, and a million memories in between.

Then one night, with her warmth still lingering on the sheets, Aly King walked away from me, from us, from our life.

They say time heals all wounds, but not for me.
Not when my heart is empty.
Not when there is nothing but a sea of meaningless faces wherever I go.

It always comes back to her.

Aly needs reminding of how drunk our love made us, before she forgets completely.

Before we lose our chance.
Before we are irrevocably broken.

I couldn't wait for Eden Butler to finally release the last book in the Thin Love series. After the mutha of that epilogue cliffy we got in Thick Love, I knew Aly and Ransom had a lot more story to tell...challenges to face. This book is chock full of challenges for both Aly and Ransom as well as the first couple, parents Kona and Kiera. A lot of things happen and the angst is a plenty but in the end, Eden Butler didn't fail me in giving me that happily-ever-after I so needed here. For everyone.

Thick and Thin cannot be read as a standalone and each book must be read in chronological order. We've taken quiet the ride over the years with the Riley-Hale family and I'm happy and sad at the same time to see it come to an end here. We always knew Aly and Ransom were meant to be but sometimes life just pulls you in opposite directions without really acknowledging it until it's too late. Ransom with his pro-football commitment and Aly with her commitment to dance and her hometown of New Orleans. They tried...they failed. Can they try again or is it too late how many years later...

Thick and Thin is chock full of both Hawaiian and Creole culture. Of family and values. Commitment and sacrifice. Of love that gets that second-chance even after years apart. It's funny how both Ransom and his Aly get that long-awaited second-chance romance much like that of his own parents Kona and Kiera in Thin Love. Everything goes full circle here and it's all very sweet and touching.

Eden Butler has the gift to immerse her readers into plot that, albeit fairly light on steam, is heavy on heart. We fall for the characters, their culture, and their love story. I sincerely look forward to what's next in store with Eden Butler.

"You and me are end game."

Advanced copy received by author in exchange for my honest review.

Eden Butler is an editor and writer of New Adult Romance and SciFi and Fantasy novels and the nine-times great-granddaughter of an honest-to-God English pirate. This could explain her affinity for rule breaking and rum. Her debut novel, a New Adult, Contemporary (no cliffie) Romance, “Chasing Serenity” launched in October 2013 and quickly became an Amazon bestseller.When she’s not writing or wondering about her possibly Jack Sparrowesque ancestor, Eden edits, reads and spends way too much time watching rugby, Doctor Who and New Orleans Saints football.

She is currently living under teenage rule alongside her husband in southeast Louisiana.
