I had HEART PALPITATIONS when I heard the words "EVERYONE FROM THE SERIES WILL MAKE AN APPEARANCE" !!!! Holy cheese balls!!!!!! I am so excited to see how everything is going to work out and how everyone will wrap the story up! Also very excited to see Sloane and James my favorite couple in this series!
I think before reading this final book you should definitely take advantage of the long wait to reread the series and refresh yourself on who everyone is. Honestly, at this point, there have been

The conclusion to the series is very fulfilling. Everything comes full circle and you get a good sense of how everything is going to move forward from there. All the players are in the game and the stakes are high. My favorite scene was the epilogue.

“It's The Program or me. And I decide it's going to be me.”

Wow. I can't believe it's over. This is a series I talk about all the time - because the first book The Program, feels so.....uncomfortably prophetic. It's something I can see the happening - as the parents, as the kids. It's just so unsettling - and so well written. The whole series, all 6 books have been such a ride. And even though this one was a bit....neat...a bit pulled together and maybe pushed/rushed in a few places, I'm complet

Really great end to this series. Suzanne Young has impressed me with every single book. I've never read a series this long that didn't feel like it was pushing it, adding more and more books until I was bored. I never felt tired of reading about this world or these characters. I can even see ways for her to extend this world with more books probably. I can always count on this series to break reading slumps and keep me engaged. Tatum and Wes were awesome and the cameos from everyone else were gr ...more

Pre-release thoughts:
Let's hope the cover represents the state of Tatum and Wes' relationship in this book. Not together and broken apart.

It's unfortunate, but I think the final book in the Program series is the weakest one yet. I do appreciate how the story ended and how Young brought everyone back to finally put a stop to the Program, but I also feel like the book was a bit of a mess.

In the Program series, the second half of each duology has had the same problem. It’s much too slow. We

The complication 4⭐️

I loved seeing how everyone delt with the ending of the program. Tatum and Wes have this new found relationship and dealing with their past that was interesting, love struck and painful.
I love the program series and dont want it to end.

The Complication is the final book in The Program series. This series is comprised of three duets. But this last book ties together the entire series.

Do you have to read the entire series to read this book? Yes and no. I would say that it is mandatory to read book 5, The Adjustment because The Complication continues that story. I definitely think that most people reading this book will be fans of the entire series. A lot of previous characters return. And basically this book ties together the en

This is an amazing sixth book in The Program series by Suzanne Young! If you have yet to read the first five books, stop reading this and real those then this one!! You will be glad you did!!

i cant believe this series is finally over. i feel like so much has happened over the last six books that i want to make sure this review is reflective of this book only, and not the series as a whole.

firstly, and most importantly, i will say that i was rather content with the ending to everything. it didnt leave me wanting more or unsatisfied. i thought everything was tied together nicely and resolved well. i thought it was really neat how all the stories finally converged and tied together. it

so i’ve never written a review on here but since this is the last book in the series it seems appropriate. to start all i can say is, wow this book is *chefs kiss*. i love how all the characters from past books are in this and how the ending just ties everything together. so many twists and turns it’s like a rollercoaster 10/10 would recommend this series.

If I were to rate this book based just on the stuff I liked, it could have easily earned four stars. The stuff I didn't like would set it at one and-a-half, maybe two if I was being generous. So I'm giving the book overall a rating right in between those.

Let me get the stuff I didn't like out of the way first so I can end on a positive note. Just about everything having to do with Wes and Tatum's relationship irritated me to death. Just when I thought she was finally going to let him go and mov

When I started this series years ago I never expected it to continue into six books. It’s bittersweet for the series to be over, but ... admittedly this wasn’t my favourite.

With cameos from previous characters, the storylines are connected full circle, which was needed, but I also felt the connections were stretched thin, like shocking reveals were forcefully added to tie everything together perfectly. I loved the discovery behind Tatum in this book, although I can’t say I’m satisfied with her

This is pretty much all of the other books in this one. There was nothing new. This series should have ended two books ago.

I literally cannot read books with any action in them. It is definitely not the book's fault, it is completely my fault. I keep trying to read books that are not usually the type of books I read, in an attempts to widen my reading horizons, but it never works out. I literally like what I like, and I hate everything else. I used to love dystopia-type books full of action when I was in middle school, but I can no longer read them anymore. I feel nothing, I get bored, I start skimming pages, I have ...more
Promised by Suzanne Young to be the final book of the Program series, and yes, this is most definitely the case. It's not just the end of Tatum's duology, but the wrapping up of the original Program story and the Remedy duology as well. All three main concepts that started all three duologies figure strongly into this final entry. And while it's a bit of a long haul to the end of this one, with a bit of a slow and confusing first half, it's the second half where Young really outdoes herself. End ...more

I loved how it all ended! I absolutely loved seeing all the characters from the entire series come together and to have all their storylines tied up. Especially loved the epilogue. <3 This is one of those underrated series more people should read.

Really good end to the series. Lots of emotions.
The Complication brings The Program series full circle, giving readers what certainly seems like a final conclusion. Honestly, the book was too long and the author covers too much ground. In an attempt to give readers what they want, Suzanne Young ends up losing the thread of the story. I found myself skipping around, which is definitely a hallmark to me that the book has lost its way. I look forward to reading something new by this author, as she definitely has skill as a storyteller. The Compl ...more
I have enjoyed every novel of this series that I have read, so when I saw that the finale was available for review I jumped at the chance to read it. I thought I had read everything she had published to date. It turns out that I missed reading book five, which worried me. Would I understand what is happening? Would I be able to pick up the story again after so long away? And just how was this book going to connect the prequels (books three and four) with the first two books in the series? So man ...more

This whole series has followed a consistent pattern and writing style. I appreciate and applauded that consistency, even if it did feel a bit boring and repetitive at certain points. The Complication was a good way to tie up all loose ends, although it all came together a bit too rapidly and out of nowhere in the end, that seems to be the way things go in this universe.
As I've said about all the previous books in this series, they are nothing world-changing, and I do believe there were a lot o

I"ve been on the journey with this series for quite a long time and seeing how our author Ms Young is able to weave the stories of the different couples at the varying stages in the program, while also making sure to continue the thread throughout that keeps them all continuous, constant, and concurrent is impressive.  We've seen so much pain and heart ache, so much trickery and lying, and some of our favorite characters will forever be on the run so that they can have their happy endings.  So i ...more

The Program series has been something that I have loved for years now, anticipating new additions to the series every year, and now that it has come to a close, I can certainly say that Suzanne Young has built an exceptional world with these characters. I absolutely devoured this book, for me, Tatum has been one of the most compelling protagonists in the entire series, her struggles and desire to overcome is so strong yet so realistic to the human psyche and offers hope when reading a novel that ...more

last book in the program series is over :C i really enjoy this series its very interesting and i love the romance in each book, they are easy and fast pace to read, this is the book where we find out a lot of stuff, and characters from the previous books show up and theres an epilogue of the characters from first book. i think im satisfied with the ending, it wasnt anything too detailed and special but still enjoable and happy.
Nov 02, 2020 rated it it was amazing
This was the most action-filled book of the series. As the last book in the series should, it answers all of the cliff hangers from the other books. There are even some new things that you figure out in this book that will surprise you. Nothing is normal in this society, even though they try to make it perfect. Even though The Program is over, they are still operating, just not publicly. Unless Dr. McKee and Marie can come up with a cure, The Program will never go away.
