Audio – 5 stars
Story – 3.5 stars

This series isn’t what I expected. Too much of the plot centered on people conspiring to keep Caitlin and Gabe apart. I don’t like when supposedly “dark” stories take a turn into the land of soap operas.

A couple of things saved this series from being a bust for me: 1) The love between Caitlin and Gabe. It was solid, and they didn’t play games. 2) Caitlin, she was one tough chick, and has earned a spot in my Shero hall fame.

I start by saying I am so glad that this book was out...I really needed to see where Caitlin's life ended up with the 'Loss' of Gabe! Yep...I dropped that bomb there! Where is he you say? OHHHHHH, to tell you would be tragic!

Never have I read a book where two people were meant to be together...where two people were so perfect for each other....where so many people worked so hard to keep them apart.

This series reads fast, and I recommend reading the prequel and book 1 fir

3.5 Stars :-)

Listened to the Audio version -Narrators did a fantastic job!

Overall, this was a solid and enjoyable story but felt that it could have been condensed in 1 book.
I really enjoyed listening to this whole series. I really love the ending too. I feel like all the loose ends that needed tying up were done in a good way. Sometimes you just love a book and can't explain why. It was everything, the story, the characters, the drama and the narrators. They did an awesome job. All I can say is just listen to the book. I don't think you will be disappointed. ...more

I just love this series!! Read it! Go! Now! What are you waiting for?

Oh my goodness! Where to begin? So much happens in the book its crazy!!

Okay I'm going to spoil it so if you don't want to know what happens then stop reading this review!!


So Gabe maybe alive? Caitlin sneaks into Gabe's parents house to see if she can find out if its true or not. She finds "his ashes" and a funeral bulletin. She is crushed!

Caitlin's dad comes to her and tell her some aunt Sally die
Warning: unpopular opinion (but my opinion nonetheless, which is the whole point of Goodreads) mixed with rant and spoilers.


Yes, this story had a bunch of twists and turns, I cant deny that, but sorry, even those were so easy to foresee: the mean rich parents, the ass of a father, the return of the sister, the in love best friend gone stalker crazy. I guessed them all, and It still made no sense whatsoever.
It was like a long soap opera that has been on TV for so long that the writers just repea

Finally!! A Love So Deep is so full of emotion and punched to the feelings. This book starts off where a Love So Dangerous left off, with so many uncertainties and unanswered questions. There is so much going on that my head is spinning! I don't want to ruin anything for anyone, so I will say that all the pieces to the puzzle are put in place and there is finally a conclusion... One I did not see coming! So buckle up and settle in for an exciting ride!

A Love so Deep: A Dark Romance by Lili Valente is the third and final book in her To The Bone series. It picks up right where we left off in A Love so Deadly: A Dark Romance.

What happens when the person you think is lost to you forever is back? What do you do when you realize this person is not quite who you lost? What do you do when you discover that a person you've trusted for years has kept from you the most important truth?

Floored. I was heartbroken at pretty much every part of book two, th

I feel like I've been waiting forever for this book. The cliffhanger from This Wicked Rush stayed with me for a long time as did Gabe and Caitlin's story. This book is the perfect ending to their wild story. Jessie has another hit on her hands! I’m not sure it's possible, but Jessie's writing has gotten better. The emotions swirling around these pages were so raw that I was on edge for most of the book. Caitlin gets an offer that she feels is the right choice for her and her family. She moves on ...more

A Love So Deep is the third and final book in the To the Bone Series. It's been a crazy, sexy and wild ride and there is even more of the story!

It has been a year and Caitlin has a new boyfriend, someone she never thought would she would be with but she's living half a life. She just goes through the motions to make her family healthy and happy. When she gets news from home she is forced to go back to the last place she wants to be, there are too many memories there.

This book (and series) deserves more than 5 stars!
**Do not read this review if you haven't read the first two books**

After everything that Caitlin and Gabe have gone through in the first two books, I wanted nothing more than a simple happily ever after for them. But we don't always get what we want.

Gabe is back, but he's lost a lot of his memories and the personality traits that made him "Gabe". While his parents try to act as if nothing has changed and he's the son he always had been, Gabe ke

Finally!!!!!!!! I don't want to give anything away but damn. Just don't read anymore because this could contain spoilers if you have not read the first two books. With that being said.... go read em! This is not a journey you want to miss out on.

Gabe and Catlin... just freaking wow! This book was probably a little more intense than the first and it was great. Probably my most favorite in the series.

I feel like Gabe and Caitlin finally got their actual love story. Even though their story started in the first book, I feel like this is where their love became real. It all seemed kind of shallow at first. Now I can believe it. This book seemed to be more real. The characters seemed to think more about the things they did and had real reasons for their actions. The ending was my favorite. Not because it was over but because it was perfect for the story.

I can’t wait to read the next book to see

This really was the perfect ending to Caitlin and Gabe's story.

While Caitlin's life takes yet another twist and turn, it shows again how strong a character she is and the amount she can survive even if the odds are not in her favour.

There is lots of suspense, you never know quite who to trust and who is really there as a friend other than Sherry.

You really get wrapped up in the story and I couldn't help turning page after page so see what was going to happen next and to find out how perfectly th

The 1st book in the series was so awesome, I couldn't wait to read the 2nd. It wasn't quite as good, but I went on to the 3rd. It was hands down the best. Caitlin and Gabe just couldn't seem to get a break. His parents, her dad, her sister, her best friend/temporary boyfriend. Geeze, they got it hard from all directions. There was so much drama in this book, I actually had to put it down and go take a break at least 3 times.
This author knows how to write extremely likeable characters. Caitlin

Wow! This was such an intense series! It took me on a literal roller coaster of emotions. Thankfully, this book wasn’t quite as gut wrenching as the first two. Not to say I didn’t tear up or that it didn’t have me on the edge of my seat at times. And the last couple chapters were everything! This was a remarkable story of finding the meaning in life and finding and accepting your true self and surrounding yourself with others who accept you for who you are and what you believe.

I really loved this book and this series. Well worth the listen. The author gives the listener a quality story. Gabe and Caitlin are a modern day "Bonnie and Clyde". The relationship is volatile. Caitlin's dedication to her family and Gabe's dysfunctional one make a great story. The story was awesome and kept me on my toes. It was happy, sad, exciting and scary. The narrators were excellent bringing this story to life. Didn't want it to end. ...more

Caitlin's back in town, but is she ready for what's there to greet her?
OMGoodness this final book in the To The Bone series is brilliant! With Gabe's memory loss, he and Caitlin have a fight on their hands as they try to unravel the lies and deceit that will lead to the truth and their hidden enemies. A Love So Deep is thrilling, raw, emotional, heart breaking, and so well written. I loved it and highly recommend it!

Seriously, this ended as perfect as possible!

A Love So Deep is better than I thought it would be. My happy meter is blaring. My eyes are all cried out and I am no longer at risk of sobbing. I'm just smiling fondly and sighing. I'm going to miss the adventures of the Cooneys. I'm going to miss the misadventures of Caitlin.
