Where you go after you cross it is what matters most.

Here at GearShark, we’ve featured lots of drivers.

This book is the finish line of GearShark series, and it's mostly about Hopper & Arrow and Lorhaven & Joey’s HEA. Hopper and Arrow still are my fav couple in the series. In this book, Arrow isn’t shy anymore and I’m glad I saw his possessive and protective side! I’m glad these two broken finally got their HEA, love them so much! Told in multiple POV, 1st person. It’s the fifth and the last (I think! Unless Trent & Drew change their mind) installment in the "GearShark" serie

I was so happy when I found out, that there was gonna be another book in the "Gearshark" series. This is the fifth book and a continuation of Arrow and Hopper's relationship, as well as Joey and Lorhaven's. I know that it has been said that book 3 and 4 should be read before this one, but I don't agree with that statement. So for those of you who only read MM and have skipped book 3, don't worry, you can still read this one withour getting confused. Do make sure to read book 4 though !! If you h

After ending #Blur I was happy to move on to this one so I could find out how Hopper and Arrow's relationship developed and played out. I was pleased with the outcome. There was still some struggle to emotionally get there for them both. But once they did, it was pure bliss. I really like them together. I like how they are able to bring each other out of their darkness into the light that they are for each other. After how heavy the last book was for these two it was a relief to see so

I was actually highly disappointed. The only reason I read book three to this one was because I wanted more Andrew ‘Drew’ Wayne Forrester and Trent ‘T’ Mask, and what I got? Barely a scratch. Seriously, in this book we got like SMALL scenes with them. That was all. This bothered me because Dylan ‘Arrow’ ‘A’ Ambrose and Jayson ‘Jay’ ‘Hopper' ‘Hopp’ Hamilton kinda bored me in this book. Sure, they were cute and there was some more healing to do for Hopper, bu

#Finishline is the final (maybe) book in the #Gearshark series. It is an M/M romance and is the continuation of #Blur by Cambria Hebert. For those who are unfamiliar with the series, I recommend reading them all in order as characters from previous books do play a role in each one. With that being said, this is a fantastic novel! I am so glad I read the series but and so sad to see that it is over (unless we get a Trent and Drew wedding story.

When I think of a Cambria Hebert's book, this is what pops to mind:

- feelings
- family
- thoughtful, protective heroes
- witty or/and meaningful dialogues
- amazing characterization
- tons of swoon

Sometimes, she adds a bit of heartbreak too, but not in #Finishline. This is the kind of book I define "happy-happy". It's basically a novel-long epilogue and I loved every single page of it.

The first 3/4 of the story are dedicated to Arrow and Hopper. Now, if you've read my review of #Blur, you know I like

Wow, loved this book. It was amazing, Cambria you outdid yourself with this book.
I remember I wanted a little bit more from Arrow and Hopper's first book and Cambria not only listened but she managed to turn it into one of my favorite 2017 reads.

I have to say, as much as I love Josie and Lorhaven, Hopper and Arrow stole the book for me, I loved how beautiful their love shone and how beautiful everything was betwe

Super cute MM romance

The book had all the elements of a romance novel that I love…

No cheating.
No God awful break-ups.

I had some niggles , and I could have done without the MF add, and ended up skimming them, but, it was still a fantastic read.

If this is to be the last in the #Gearshark books it will be a nicely rounded conclusion which basically forms an extended epilogue for Lorhaven and Joey, as well as Arrow and Hopper.

It doesn't quite do the same for Drew and Trent and this is the only reason why I'm holding out that there may eventually be another one somewhere down the line.

I've thoroughly enjoyed each one of the books in this series, even the M/F one which sneaked in the middle.

And yet again I want to comment on these covers.

My favorite part of this book was the Lorhaven and Joey section. I just felt that the Arrow and Hopper was overkill. Too sweet, too possessive and too protective. There is absolutely no need to feel you have to protect your loved one from proven family and friends. It had me rolling my eyes a few times. I felt that from 50% on in the previous book there was zero angst and really nothing happened but a ton of sex and constant I love you's. I just liked the first three books so much more. This was ...more
4 stars because the entire book is Hopp and Arrow’s story
Hopp and Arrow’s story 5 stars (but it was only 70% of the book).
No real interest in Jace and Joey’s story that’s why I skipped that book in the series. I enjoyed them as secondary characters only.
4.5 stars

“I loved him so goddamn much it almost seemed impossible.”

I'm so damn happy that there was more. That we got this book, because I think this is truly Hopper and Arrow's Happily Ever After. I think, anything that was missing for me in #Blur, which was those happy moments; just Arrow and Hopper moments, we got here plenty. And it makes me so happy.

I think we've seen both Arrow and Hopper go through hell so they deserved this book. They deserved to truly heal. Together. And get their Ha
Both times, with both Trent and Drew and Arrow and Hopper, the second book on them, for me, wasn't quite as good as the first.

I think there are ways to have a couple stay happy and together and have some drama to liven the story up a bit. And I thought when the story came out that Hopper was also Jayson Hamilton, that that would be the big hurdle these two had to weave their way through throughout the novel. But it felt kinda...inconsequential, in the end? Like one minute, it was a big problem,

What a pleasant surprise this book was! I mean, I thought Hopper and Arrow's story ended in #blur, but I must say that I'm glad that Cambria Hebert snuck this in. I totally enjoyed this book, this whole series actually! Loved it!

And I made it to the #FinishLine, book five in GearShark series - another Hopper & Arrow's story with little bonus of Lorhaven & Joey + even smaller part of #Trew and # squad!

Damn it y’all, it’s over. I have finished the series and feel like my left arm has been cut off.

Hopper and Arrow were something out of fairy tales and I loved seeing them get their HEA after both having such emotional pasts.

The Joey and Lorhaven section was fun, and I enjoyed visiting them and seeing where they were at in their relationship after we left them in #swag.

Love isn’t conditional on death. It supersedes it. Love has no boundaries.

Seriously speaking, #Finishline was a book I didn't think I would need until I actually read it. I love Arrow and Hopper so much and a few days after reading it, this book was something that had to be written. I felt like if anyone deserved any happiness it was those two. 2/3 of the story is Arrow & Hopper's and the last part is Joey and Lorhaven's HEA.

I'm not going to give anything away. They mad

After reading #Blur I wanted, no I needed for Arrow and Hopper to have their happily ever after, to find that peace to allow them to both continue to heal and love each other. In #Finishline we get more of our favorite characters. We get Arrow and Hopper, Lorhaven and Joey and of course we can’t leave out Drew and Trent. I love how this series, like the #Hashtag series, continues with that sense of family,
4.5 Stars!
I can't get enough of the GearShark Series and it seems neither can Cambria Hebert. #FinishLine is the surprise fifth installation (and hopefully not the last), and tells Hopper's story. Not surprisingly, I love it!

#Blur was very emotional and filled with angst. It showed Arrow and Hopper's struggle for their HEA.
#FinishLine is joyful and romantic and filled with hope and family. It is the ending I was craving for Arrow and Hopper.

Arrow and Hopper... They're definitely my favourites. They're so sweet, so sensitive, so strong and lovely. They're also amazing, wonderful, cute and really, really incredible.... I can tell about them like this for eternity. I just love the way they love each other. Their love is so pure, so flawless that I almost can't stand it, because I'm goddamned jealous. I'm also sad that I have to say them a fucking goodbye.

3.5 stars -- I think I might have enjoyed this one a bit more if I'd had dedicated time to read it, instead of it being broken up in little pieces whenever I had time in between other stuff going on in my life.

That being said, remember how I LOVED #Bae because it was so much more than *just* a huge epilogue??  Well, this one is basically just a huge epilogue.  I kept waiting for twists and turns and more character development, and I really didn't get it.  
4.5-5 stars

It feels so good and so bad to finally finish this series. I can honestly say I loved most, if not all of it, and I totally fell in love with all of the characters, I got to care so much about them and their relationships I was honestly so sad I finished this but so happy with how they all ended up. Plus, I adored the whole theme of this book, I was dreading its ending! It had that whole out-of-this-world romance and sweetness that makes me totally weak. (view spoiler)

So #finishline was an unexpected surprise, one I hugely welcomed. Cambria Hebert kept this under wraps for a while and didn't give us much warning, which I love, I'm glad I didn't have to wait too long to read gearsharks final piece. (Apparently, although maybe more Trent and Drew at some point, when the time is right)
The whole book is basically an epilogue, for Arrow and Hopper and for Joey and Jace. It isn't angsty and It doesn't have huge amounts of plot. What it is is perfect, and fun, and a

I really liked these wrap-up stories.

Arrow & Hopper's was 5 stars for me, Josie & Lorhaven's 4 stars. We now need more from Trent & Drew!

5 glowing stars for Hoppy and Arrow's story! I absolutely loved #blur and was pleasantly surprised and super excited when I realized she wrote another book about them. OMG I just love how these two love each other so much and how they express their love so openly without it coming across as too sappy. That being said the only reason I am 4 starring this book, is because only 70% was their story. The other 30% was Jace and Joey.

This book was just EVERYTHING. The book centered around Arrow and Hopper taking the next step in their relationship, and what that meant given their pasts and in terms of moving forward. The book was emotional and loving while at the same time addressing the grief associated with the past. Above all, this book was hopeful. The love Arrow and Hopper have for each other is simply beautiful.
