Am back again in the world of Sarah and James seeing how thier relationships has progressed over this series. This is a book that deals with alot of different concepts portrayed to real life. It's full of emotions. Some of this real hit home with me as i suffered this myself so in relating to a book this comes extremely close. I love how caring Sarah's children are towards her. I adored the ending of this book.
I was disappointed with this third book. I gave a three stars rating but I was being generous. (This after giving five stars for book two.) Adding Abby's storyline into the primary tale of James/Sarah's journey became disruptive for this reader. The author's constant flipping between Abby and James/Sarah's storyline altered the dynamics for the book. Abby needs her own book which would have been a perfect pathway for the author to continue the series with other characters.

I wanted to sit on this one for a few days and savor the satisfaction of a 3-part book that evoked so many emotions. There were moments, as with the first two books, when I wanted to reach into the book and ring James' neck, just a little bit (or a lot, who am I kidding). But I just knew, that Sarah, as the grounding force in his life, would be there even in the hardest of times.

They have gone through so much even before this book, and if you're expecting their relationship to be all sunshine

5 +++++++ Stars


I have so many conflicting emotions with this book….I don't think I have ever in all my years of reading wanted to crawl into a book and hit somebody upside the head as bad as I wanted to in this book. This is an ongoing story so please don't try to read this as a standalone, there is so much substance you will be missing if you do that. I will not go into any detail regarding the storyline so as not to spoil

5 out of 5 stars

I loved reading the story Mountains Loved (Mountains Series #3) by Phoebe Alexander. It is the third book in the story of James and Sarah. These two have chemistry and a strong love for each other. They also still have some mountains that they must climb. Situations with family and if they will have an open relationship are complications that they must face. What does the future hold for James and Sarah? Will they be torn

By Phoebe Alexander

This is the continued story of Dr. Sarah Lynde and Lt. James McAllister. This I think was the hardest book to read, as James and Sarah still have struggles. Don't get me wrong. All relationships have struggles, we have all been there. But for Sarah and James, this is a whole new struggle. Learning to be honest and communication is a real struggle. James sure tried, Sarah and even my patience. So having said that let's throw in some

The conclusion of James’ and Sarah’s story is not without its ups and downs. The third book of their story picks up a little in the future from where the second one left off. James and Sarah are now married. Like previous books, it switches back and forth between Sarah’s POV and James’ POV. This sometimes gets a little confusing because there is no indication at the beginning of the new chapter as to who’s POV it is.
Sarah and James set out to build their family, as they talked about in previous

Mountains Loved (Mountains Series #3) By Phoebe Alexander
Mountains Loved is the third book in the Mountains Series by Pheobe Alexander. Holy Cow , what a story. I think this one is my favorite yet. I literally found myself lost in the pages. I couldn’t stop reading till the end. I was invested in this book so much I at times was biting at my nails not because of suspense but because the scene was hot and steamy. There is a bit of drama and a little bit of sadness but the steamy scenes

I guess some xs u have 2 watch things crumble b4 u can build them back up even stronger than b4. James had 2 get his head out of his ass from his dad b4 he realized what truly matters the most. And 2 abby's dad it's a good thing he finally got his head out of his ass 2 really c the truth of the psycho bit cheaper b4 he married her.

Mountains Loved (Mountains Series #3) By Phoebe Alexander. I love this series. Its the story of Dr. Sarah Lynde & Lt. James McAllister. These books need to be read in order to get the full story. They have had to climb many mountains to get where they are but the mountain climbing isn't over. This relationship is not all sunshine and puppies. There are other people involved which always makes things more complicated but there relationship is alone stormy. They have a steamy attraction to one ...more

This is a series I have loved from the beginning and the third book brings it over the top. I highly suggest reading this series in order to help understand Sarah and James's story better. In this book their story continues. Just when they think they are hitting the top of their mountain, they realize that the mountain has just gotten bigger and there is more to climb. There is something missing in their relationship, will they find it to get their HEA that they have always wanted? They are ...more

I've followed this series from the very start & the third Book is by far the best one out of the series. This series should be read in order to get the best possible reading experience! This book is a continuation of James and Sarah's story and they're are learning that even though life is currently good, there will always be another Mountain to climb. They have to decide if this challenge is the end for them or will they learn that the HEA they've been searching for is worth fighting for?

It would seem after Mountains Climbed that Sarah and James finally have their act together. They have found their Happily Ever After and life has moved forward a bit. However, there were promises made that must now be fulfilled and while they are technically in a poly relationship, they haven't seemed to have fulfilled that part of themselves since they committed to each other. As open as they seem to be, there seems to be something missing in their relationship. These two will have more ...more

Mountains Loved by Phoebe Alexander was great! It was the perfect end to this trilogy series. Like the other two, this book grabbed in from the beginning and wouldn't let go. I couldn't tell if this novel was more emotional than the second in the series, but all the emotions are definitely in this one! It had me laughing and crying just like the second one did. And again, I highly recommend this third book in the Mountains Series!

I have read both Mountains Wanted and Mountains Climbed by Phoebe Alexander and this third book Mountains Loved didn’t let me down either! I have fallen for Sarah and James since the first book. Their story has such depth that I feel myself getting drawn in every time I open a Mountains Series. It’s an absolute must (in my opinion) to read the first two before this one. You will NOT be disappointed. Also the steamy scenes that Phoebe gives are AMAZING.

This is the final chapter in this series Mountain Loved. The characters go through their ups and downs, and get their happy ending. The story takes its ups and downs and takes you on an adventure. It is recommended that you read them in order to get a better understanding of the story and the characters.

I loved the continued storyline of James and Sarah. The author continues to developed the couple making us fall hook, line, and sinker in our commitment to follow there journey. Both characters and storyline are well developed and written.

SUCH A REMARKABLE STORY! Phoebe Alexander is such an amazing author. This may very well be my favorite book in this trilogy. The writing continues to be flawless. The characters are well developed and well rounded. You've become invested in them at this point. You run the gamut of emotions by the time you finish this story. And what a story it is. This is a journey you don't want to miss.

This was my favorite of the series. Real, heartfelt, overwhelming human connections throughout the entire book left my emotions all over the place. I can completely identify with Sarah and I am so glad this character was written. Excellent job. 5 stars.

I am so in love with James and Sarah, I don't want their story to end! They have their ups and downs, like every other married couple. And the sex is super hot! Each of Phoebe's books I love a little more than the last!

I think this is my favorite in the series (besides the novella) and that's saying a lot considering book 2 had Garrett!

So where to start?

First of all, Sarah's story felt very personal for me because her experiences with the twins is something I have gone through and it was extremely realistic, including her relationship with James during and after.

Though I wanted to hit James across the head a bunch, I wasn't surprised by his actions. Once again, pretty realistic and I like real, full-fleshed
So 40% into this book, and here are my frustrations that I hope get cleared up at some point.
First, I don't even want to read about Abby. This story is about Sarah and James.
At no point do Sarah and James talk about him being interested in the alternative life style, he just jumps in with both feet and no conversation. That seem contrary to everything about Sarah thus far in the series. Then Sarah is jealous about James wanting to invite others in - the flip-flopping of feelings and no

The author definitely saved the best for last with this final book in the trilogy! I found myself up until 2 am reading, desperate to know what happened to Sarah and James, as well as Abby.
I enjoyed the thoroughness with which the characters were fleshed out, and the dichotomy between Sarah's story and her daughters' was really interesting.
Bonus: The sex scenes in this book were definitely steamy!!
While you could certainly read this one as a stand alone novel, I think it would really be best

Love the journey up the mountain. Another excellent work by Alexander. Touching and endearing, the story kept you guessing but still ended in a way that was satisfying way for James and Sarah.

This is an awesome trilogy. I could not put my kindle down. I would highly recommend it. You will not be disappointed.
