An absolutely perfect end to the trilogy! I can honestly say I had no idea how it was going to end; I wasn't even sure how I *wanted* it to end as the various twist and turns played out. Iris and Zeke's path is messy and wonderful and painful, and ultimately very real and hopeful. A brilliant trilogy that's just made for summer.

I listened to the whole trilogy on audio, and can highly recommend.

This was a great conclusion to the trilogy. It really developed the story, and Iris's character in particular. I understood why Zeke was not present for much of the book but it did feel a little like his character development was short changed as a result. I loved how real and messy the characters were allowed to be, this made them all the more relatable.

This series just got better and better. A romance that felt very real. Reminding us what it was like to love for the first time. And if we didn't surf already, we'd certainly want to now.

This book was a great conclusion to an entertaining series. All three books are good summer reads, and there's so many things I liked about Ride.

The story was crafted with a kind of gritty realism that YA needs, whilst still giving me the ending I wanted for the two main characters.

I loved Iris, I loved her flaws. She messed up a lot, whilst still being a badass surfer chick. She was relatable in the way that she experienced love and loss and hit all the roadblocks in her career and relationshi

Ride is the Third and final book in the trilogy Blue.

Iris and Zeke go thru hard times in their lives facing adult decisions and looking for their own identity.

Iris struggles to find her place in Newquay again. She’s a celebrity now, the very definition of a local girl made good in a town where professional surfers are rock stars. She is different. Unwilling to admit the truth, even to herself, Iris lets her emotions overrule her head. She makes some mistakes and has to live with some unpleasant

In the last book of the trilogy, the action moves from gnarly waves to restless hearts. After the action-packed first two books that were real roller-coasters of emotions, Ride does't disappoint either. The way Iris struggles with her decision to leave Zeke sounds real and heartbreaking. Her search of her true self and the road to realizing what she wants to do with her life were gripping from the beginning to the end.

I thought the characterization of Iris was beautifully executed. When she went

I read 'Ride', the last part of 'Blue' trilogy, in one day. The plot keeps reader's attention from the very beginning til the very end of the book. Iris and Zeke go thru hard times in their lives facing adult decisions and looking for their own identity. There were few plot twists that really surprised me, one of which left me almost heartbroken for a bit, until all was solved. What I love about Lisa's books is the fact that she shows the way life is, sometimes bumpy and dirty. That nobody's per ...more

This book actually didn't make up for the bad end of Air. I hoped it would be better in this last part of the series, but it didn't. The story is still sweet en especially the end is nice. It reads quick, but the beginning en the middel is nothing special.
A full review will be up on www.thebookdiaries.nl shortly (in Dutch).
