What an emotional, angsty, and swoony conclusion to the series! Readers have been left hanging at the end of the previous books, but this time everyone comes clean. Questions are answered and truths are revealed. It's a difficult journey, but completely worth it in the end! Clean Break is book 3 in the A Little Like Destiny series and is not a stand alone. It should only be read after reading the previous 2 books.

I loved seeing everyone's true colors in this book. The good, the bad, and the inev

This conclusion is EXPLOSIVE!! I was IMpatiently waiting to see what would happen between Mark, Brian and Reese. Lisa definitely DID NOT disappoint me, I the past due to "feels" over load threatened to kick Lisa in the shins but it was because I was so passionate about this series and what would happen to these characters!

Emotions were ALL the way high if you remember what happened in book two. How things were left, how people were revealed to be absolutely terrible! I had my jaw on t

What a perfect ending to a series that gave me cliffhangers that had me speculating on the outcome and waiting impatiently for the new book to come out to give me the answer I needed to know. This book was filled with deception, heartbreak, regret and most of all a love that conquered all.

The true Mark and Brian came out in this book and left me shocked and appalled for the revelations that were made on that roof top and showed me that two brothers couldn’t be more different. As brothers Mark a

"How do you move on from the only one who has ever spoken to your soul?"

When I heard the title of book 3 was 'Clean Break', I sorta freaked out a little. Pair that with the ending to book #2, and I was super anxious before I even started reading this one.

This picks up right where 'Only Ever You' ends. Reese is left with a very difficult decision as her heart is torn between the two Ashton brothers. Once she pulls back the layers, she realizes that there is really only one choice... a clean

“Clean Break” was so freaking good! Lisa is such an AMAZING writer! She just brings this story to life. You are feeling what Reese feels all the hurt and heart-break, all the anger and happiness you can feel everything. This book was so heartbreaking but so fulfilling at the same time. A love triangle for the ages. The twist at the end of “Only Ever You” and the beginning of this book I didn’t see coming! I was so shocked!  You finally

'Clean Break' takes you on an emotional journey as we pick up right where 'Only Ever You' ended. This book is not only an emotional rollercoaster of a page turner but you may also want to hit Reece and Mark across the head with it at one point.(Softly lol) These two love others more than themselves, so much so, that they lose out on their own happiness. And man do I want t

“How do you move on from the only one who has ever spoken to your soul?”

Holy cow!!! Lisa Suzanne certainly ended the series PERFECTLY!!!! As with the other books, it only took me mere hours to devour this one. I was waiting for this book on pins and needles, especially with how things ended in book 2.

It begins exactly where book 2 left off. I didn’t think Suzanne could surprise again, but she certainly did with the beginning of this one! I learned very quickly that people aren’t always what the

4.5 Stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫
Everything I had hoped for; Clean Break was a great ending to the deliciously addictive A Little Like Destiny series.

Reese was trying to carry on after that night on the rooftop, when secrets and lies were exposed. What was revealed was shocking, and I hadn’t expected that the result would be Reese returning home, alone.

But true love never dies and the love of Reese’s life was never far from her mind. One call had her returning to the family she felt she tore apart and never

Whenever I would read this series, It made me so happy & so giddy! Best feeling ever! From the very first book, I was hooked & completely consumed to the point I couldn't put it down! This series is my happy place & warms my heart! Clean Break is definitely my favorite book in the series! So many emotions & all the feels throughout this book & series! Mark Ashton tops all other book boyfriends! I have never been so consumed with a book or series, like I have with this! I'm sad it's over, but I a ...more

The perfect ending for a wonderful series. Mark loves Reese but let's her go. Brian never really loved Reese he was just trying to get back at Mark. And while Reese thought she loved them both, it is only when she walks away from any relationship does she realize who she really was meant to be with. But is it too late, can she get the man back that she chooses? Or will she end up alone and both men suffer? This story had me on the edge of my seat from the opening pages, but it is the honest, tru ...more
This is the third and final book of the A Little Like Destiny series. We learn about what happens to Reese, Mark, and Brian. It's everyone's fantasy to just meet their rock star idol, forget about dating them! I really liked this book. It was an interesting read and I was invested in the characters to want to know what happened to them in the end. Would Reese truly be able to leave Mark behind? Would she move on with an ex? But what happens when she goes to see Vail in concert? Do Mark and Reese ...more

Clean Break is GUT WRENCHING! I have no other way to tell describe it as a whole. The angst in this story was taken to a whole other level of torture and heartbreak! I picked it up and couldn't put it down!

"My broken heart is in his hands despite everything. I need to talk to him, I just don't know how. He's as unattainable to me now as he was before I even met him."

Reese asks for thing and one thing only... a Clean Break. But can you truly have a clean break when you were so entrenched in two

Loved this! First, I just have to say that I'm glad we didn't have such long wait times between books. I was so adamant about who I wanted Reese to pick and I am so happy with how things ended. The conclusion was perfect! Lisa took us on a very emotional and anxious ride with this series, but it was all worth it in the end! If you guys haven't picked this series up and you like the angst, love triangle and rockstar romance, go start A Little Like Destiny. Now that all 3 books are out you guys ca ...more

This was such an amazing conclusion to this series. Reese fell for one brother and then the other. Then heartache when she lost them both. How will Reese move on from this? In the end who will win her heart? How this story ends was exactly as I had hoped. This is a love story filled with lots of steamy chemistry and a story I could not put down. Looking forward to hopefully seeing more of these characters in other books.

Clean Break is Book three in the A Little Like Destiny series. It gives us a perfect ending to this amazing and angsty story.

“This is the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do,” he whispers. I look up at him through watery eyes.
“Then why are you doing it?” I ask. I want to know why our love isn’t enough—why I’m not enough.”

I loved this very emotional series with forbidden aspects, a bit of a twisted love triangle.

Wow oh Wow. Reese is done, she's lost her love and came between family what's left? When Reese witnesses Brian and Mark fighting and words exchanged she knows that any feelings between her and Mark are done , but her heart isn't ready for that. Mark knows he's pushed her away, but it's for the best or is it. Can these two move on and move toward each other and give their love a chance?

It is no secret that I am passionate about Lisa Suzanne's Rock Star series and enamored with this love triangle. I have included the ENTIRE SERIES in my TOP READS for 2017. Lisa's writing just comes to life and I laughed, cried, and swooned throughout this book and series for that matter.

Everything comes to a head in this book! The whole series has been a roller coaster ride and this book was no different. I don't like triangles but this trilogy has kept me gripped until the very end. Emotions are turned up to 11 in this instalment. I was glad that things ended the way they did, even if the characters all frustrated me! A good read.

After the roll coaster of emotions of the first two books I was happy Mark & Reese could finally be together although I was surprised in the beginning how Mark let Reese go so easily & didn’t make any attempt to get her back until Brian stepped in. My suspicions about Brian ended up being accurate so I wished Mark would have chased after Reese once the dust had settled. But that drama is what kept me reading until I knew the end. ...more

An amazing conclusion, to a phenomenal trilogy.
The way ‘Only Ever You’ ended, I needed ‘Clean Break’, as soon as I got it, I stopped everything to read it.
I never wanted to pick a team but by the end of book 2 I was willing to admit I had. Both brothers are great, or so I thought. Book 3 starts where book 2 ends, within that first chapter I loved one brother and wanted to kick the other in the b@lls. No spoilers you’ll just have to read it to find out.

*Received an advance reader copy in exchange for an honest review*

The first book in this trilogy reminded me a lot of Thoughtless by S. C. Stevens. It had a very similar story line so it felt predictable to me. I wanted more character development for the characters but mostly the brothers. I needed more information about each of the brothers other than one is a rock star and they have bad blood between them.

Sweet sweetness! This book left my with a BIG book hangover. It was everything and more. Clean Break is pure PERFECTION. Lisa Suzanne has delivered an epic masterpiece! I can't imagine a greater bookish pleasure. It is painfully beautiful, powerful, angsty, deeply compelling.

Whew! Clean Break didn’t break our hearts fully only at certain times in the story. This is book 3 in the A Little Like Destiny series and must be read in order. You must read book 1 and 2 to enjoy this story. This picks up right where book 2 left off and we were on the edge of seats waiting to see how explosive this bomb was going to be. Secrets are revealed and hearts are going to crack.

This definitely was a conclusion worth waiting for <3

I was very conflicted when I came to an end with reading Only Ever You because how do you choose from two brothers that you have come to fall in love with? I know that Reese harbored stronger feelings for Mark than she did for Brian but either way, she still loved them both and she honestly thought that she wouldn't get anywhere with the hot rock star and with the reputation he had, it was hard to determine if he was serious about her or not.

The final book on this series and it’s all about destiny.....

Two brothers vying for Reese; a high school teacher. One brother pushing her away because everybody comes first except his heart. One brother destroying all in his path for avenging his past. And one women torn up for loving them both but loving one more then the other but not getting to choose that one.
