Hmmmm. It was okay, but it got too redundant for me. How many times did I have to read about Calvin wanting to kill Lola. I wanted to say "kill her"

This book ended off the series excellently. I am so happy that Bertha was killed off in this book, because I don't think I could take anymore of her. Mary Monroe did fantastic job. ...more

Lola has her head in the clouds. Joan is jaded. Calvin is crazy but i agree with some of his complaints about Lola.

Just drama. Worth a read.

This book was good. It was very predictable but I still enjoyed it. I missed reading about Joan and Lola. Another problem I had with this book is the fact that this book was very repetitive. I'm glad that I finished this trilogy. It was completely worth my time.

Now this is how you end a series!!!! This book was the ultimate ending to a good series. This was a good series on internet dating and the possible consequences of some of our choices. I loved how the author gave pointers to any one thinking of taking this avenue to meet someone,. All internet dating is not bad, but if certain signs are there, one must pay attention. I have to say the ending I never saw coming and the series was wrapped up very nicely. Thanks to NetGalley, the author and the pub ...more

Wow After reading the first two I couldn't wait on this one to come out! This book was the type of book you hate to put down. Ms. Monroe really lot did herself with this series. She kept the readers attention from book one all the way through book three, her main characters were description of events were so clear that you could visualized the scenes as if you were standing in the room with them!

This book was okay. it was a little long-winded and I found myself wanting to skip parts. To me it didn't focus enough on Lola and Calvin and too much on Joan and her problems. Would I recommend it only if you have read the other parts of the series. If not you can skip it.

Loved every minute of it! Mary Monroe is always so funny and flawless in her depictions. Waiting to see how Lola and Joan would end up kept me reading every spare moment I had. No one does it like Monroe!

Really good read. It was sad, funny, and suspenseful. I read it in a day and a half. I couldn't put it down.

Great end

I enjoyed this series, sorry the series ended but was happy with the ending. I would recommend this book (series) to all my friends that love reading novels.
Honestly, I only read this book because I read the other two. As with other two, this one was was repetitive. Almost each time Monroe switches between characters she gives a recap of things that have already been drilled into our heads. There wasn't anything compelling about this book. By this third book I grew to dislike Lola, who I felt was portrayed as week and delusional and Joan, I cant find any redeeming qualities for. She was selfish and not really a great friend, when you really think ab ...more

A good closing to a suspenseful series!! I am happy with the ending. Lola and Joan had to endure so much in this installment to ultimately get to where they wanted to be in life and in love. And in the end, it is there friendship, courage and loyalty to one another that helps the to survive through it all. This could not have been a better closing for Calvin. He had escalated to a point of no return. I look forward to Mary Monroe's next work due out in the Spring.

Easy read nice storyline. People need to be more aware of this online dating and some of the dangers that's out there.

I chose this rating because I did like the storyline. I also feel that you just must be careful do your research when dating online. And be careful of the information that you give out. So happy that Lola had a beautiful ending.

For those of you reading the Lonely Heart, Deadly Heart series, the extremely drawn out plot is finally resolved. Thank God! I couldn't have followed this storyline any longer. Great read.

I read the series Wow is what I can say

Joan and Lola were very good friends. They were powerful together. I thought that Elbert would have been good for Lola and happy to see that they got together. I was happy that Reed got just what he deserved.
