*** 3.5 stars ***
Why you have to increase the expectations for my future boyfriend/husband?
Why you made me crave a gentle and patient man instead of the unforgiving alpha I preferred?
Why Lake?? Why??

The best parts of the book :
1. LAKE♥️
2 . His bond with his friends♥️

I swooned over the friendship they share, kindness they showered on each other and the way they had each other's back!!

It was a sweet romance read., however I expected more from Lake’s story.
I enjoyed the relationship between the three boys, as well the one of their girlfriends.

This book had me all over the place with my emotions, first I'm laughing, then I'm crying, then I'm laughing so hard I'm crying, lets just say I was a mess. I have really been enjoying this series and have come to care about the characters so much so that I was ecstatic when I saw that the series wasn't ending with Lake's story and we were going to get Julian's story and hopefully Preston's story as well. Was I doing the Happy Dance? You bet your ass I was!

I love this series and Michelle really brought her A game in this book. I absolutely loved it. It had all the feels and emotions in it and I could not put it down once I started freading it. I started reading it late at night and finished early the next morning because I had to see what was going to happen to Lake and Lee.

Lake and Lee have an arranged marriage and Lee is from Korea and does not want to go to America to marry Lake Cutler but her father has other plans and when she gets to America

“You’re like a lotus flower. Pure and patient. You have love and compassion for all things.”

First of all you need to know I LOVE the Trinity Academy Series. And I totally adore Falcon, Mason and Lake as individuals as well as their friendship.
But,… yeah sometimes there’s a but…, Lake’s book was by far the weakest one to me. The story didn’t get to me like I thought it would. It was not as interesting or thrilling as the other ones. And it was the first time in this series that I wished
Sissy's Romance Book Review
Lake is book Three in the Trinity Academy Series. This is the story of Lake and Lee. I have read the previous books, "Falcon" and "Mason" which do have a underlining story that carried over into this book, so you may want to read the previous book to fully enjoy this one.
Lee is Korean who has seen how her parents arranged married worked...not to the good. So when her father makes an arrange marriage for her in America which she plans on making sure that the man will not go through. So her plan

This was the shortest book of all 3 in the series. It felt like it was over in a blink. After binge reading all 3 books, by now I knew what to expect and how things will turn out. So it was more like a easy read, where you don't have to think or concentrate too much. It was sweat, but that's all. Maybe books by this author just wasn't my cup of tea, but I still enjoyed myself enough and I'm not sorry I've read it. 2.5 stars ...more

5 LAKE AND LEE STARS!! I am sad the trilogy is over....these three guys are perfect.....I loved them all. Lake and Lee's story was so sweet and tender with all the feels. This story was perfect and closed up the loose ends in this series that were hanging around. You definitely need to read these three books in order....I highly recommend this trilogy. ...more

Lake Cutler is one of the shareholders of CRC Holdings along with his best friend Falcon Reyes and Mason Chargill. Each of the friends made a deal with CRC and Lake agreed to enter into an arranged marriage with Lee-Ann Park in order to secure a deal with a company from Korea run by her father, Chairman Park.
Lee-Ann Park never knew who her father was growing up and now she is being forced to move to a new country and enter into a marriage with someone she doesn’t even know in order to

Cuteness Overload Perfection!

Lake was just EPIC! I couldn't get enough of the whole Trinity Academy crew, and totally milked the last half of this book just to make it last. Lake and Lee were just amazing from beginning to end. Michelle totally broke my heart since the prologue and slowly put me back together with each page. I can not get over this book and I'm glad I have my own Kingsley stash to get through this book hangover.

***5 stars***

Say it ain't so...This can't be the end...can it? This series and these characters are life! They took a piece of my heart and I give it to them with open arms.

Lake and Lee have a once in a lifetime kind of love. Innocent, sweet, and unscathed. Lake is the kind of man every woman hopes to have in their lives. He's in a league all his own, and Lee is one lucky girl to have wrangled him in.

This book but also this series was so great. I'm obsessed with Michelles writing, she never fails to write an amazing story.

Lake is the third and final book in the Trinity Academy series and what a finale it was. Falcon and Mason must be read before jumping into this book to fully enjoy and understand the interconnected storyline.

Lake and Lee gave me so many damn feels, their love was so beautiful and sweet and I was so giddy throughout the whole book watching their relationship grow. I loved e

Ahhhhh I'm glad to hear it's not over, and we'll still see more of this group in Julian's book.

This is really a soft trilogy and lovely to read. It sure was worth the read and I couldn't stop for a second!

The story of Lake and Lee had everything to go wrong... after all, who still believes in arranged marriage and on top of totally different cultures?

But it's impossible not to love Lake! As much as I fell in love with this trio of inseparable friends, there's no doubt that Lake is the glue that

Lake and Lee's story was do unexpected and touched me in ways I never imagined. I adore Lee she brings such a feeling of peace and clarity to Lake's life. Michelle brought them to life so effectively and wrote their once in a lifetime love story. Lee was such a beautiful soul both inside and out. Lake my sweet boy man was everything I wanted him to be. Strong and supportive, tender and patient. The thing I loved so much about this series is the unwavering bond between all the boy. Their obvious ...more

Lake’s story has been the one I anticipated the most from this series. It was a lot different than I expected because Lake was a lot different than I expected. The story of Lake and Lee was sweet and touching and nothing like the first two books that were angsty and full of heat.

An emotional ride and I’m sad it’s over. I’m going to miss these boys

Pretty much the same as the first two books. I enjoy the characters, the group of friends and the dynamics so much. As well as the relationship between the two main characters. The story just lacks depth and has so much more potential. Felt rushed in some places as well.

Once again, after the slight cliff-hanger which was left in Mason, I started Lake’s book ASAP. Lake is betrothed to Lee-ann, the daughter of a Korean investor in the family business, and to ensure their business deal is ironclad, he must marry her. Lake is fairly reluctant to be the one who must marry, but after speaking to Lee-ann through video chat and text, he feels like he knows her well enough to try. But that all changes when Lee-ann lands in the US and is completely different to the woman ...more

I did something I never do when I learned Lake had made a safe landing on my Kindle. I ditched my current read mid-way to finally get some answers and closure. I was excited to see the laughable always dependable always hungry Lake get his HEA.

Lake always knew his place in the family business. Falcon would go on to open his own business while Mason would run the company and Lake would agree to an arranged marriage to Park Lee Ann to secure a sound investment for the company. Littl

LAKE (Trinity Academy #3) by Michelle Heard


Lake is the third book in the Trinity Academy by author Michelle Heard and it's written in dual POV.

Lake is a little different than the first two books, because, Lake , as a character and as a man is different than Mason and Falcon. If the first two books were bully romance, this one, certainly isn't a bully romance. Lake's story is a little different than Falcons and Mason's story b

Michelle definitely saved the best for last. Dont get me wrong I loved both Falcon and Mason, but Lake and Lee stole my heart. I felt so many emotions while reading this book. I caught myself smiling huge, laughing and crying while I got lost in this book. I read this whole book in just a few hours because I just couldnt return to reality until I was finished. Lake is such a sweetheart and Lee was one amazingly strong woman. They were the perfect match. I dont want to give too much away because ...more

Holly Molly! What had I just read! I got sucked in with the power of a black hole. Remember to read two previous books to have the setting for Lake and Lee-ann story.
This story starts with Lee, we bet all the basic info about her. She's Korean. She needs to fulfill a mission. But will she manage to keep her heart intact when it comes to Lake? All bets are open in this one! I love the way Ms.Heard mixed western and eastern cultures here and how everything was so true to people who know at least A

Oh Lake!

Wow! I started Lake with high expectations and Lake exceeded those expectations! I’m gonna start with my love for the bond these 3 guys have with each other. It even makes me envious that I wish I had friends I was close to like this. It’s very rare. I went in thinking this book was gonna take one direction when it ended up taking a different direction than I had in my head which is another reason I love this series. I love being surprised!

She grabbed ahold of my heart and ripped it out... but then she oh so sweetly put it back in place.. I have loved everyone of these boys (men)'s books but this one took the cake. I just loved Lake in the past books.. he was the carefree, and sweet one with a great sense of humor and extremely loyal to those he cares for and loves.

Lee-ann is a strong, honorable woman, that was forced into a married she didn't agree too, but once she saw the man Lake was and the way he was towards her, her heart just fell for him.

A Heartwarming Story

This series has been an awe inspiring experience. It brought me joy and laughter. It was truly uplifting. The loyalty and friendship these characters share makes you excited to witness their journey. They are fighters and protectors. The darkness and ugliness in the world around them has no power over the deep love they have for each other. This author has a way of writing entire groups of amazing characters you just want to spend time with. You want to be a part of their gro

The love I have for this book cannot be put into words!! And Michelle brought some beloved characters into this book for a brief moment and I couldn’t contain my happiness!

The joy this book has brought to me is stunning! I have said it before and I will say it again...Michelle’s gift of writing is something beautiful and it’s rare to find in an author these days. She stands out amongst the masses and I couldn’t be happier for her success!

I think, it's my fav book in the series. All the goodness, I loved in previous books is here. Falcon, Mason and Lake brotherhood. Thats everything. More romance between Falcons & Layla, and Mason & Kingsley. That's fabulous. But add Korean culture in and I'm in heaven. Yes, I love Kpop (Korean music), love Kdramas. So, I love Lee. Okay, I would loved her, even if she wasn't Korean, its just a bonus. All cuteness overload.
Loved her with Lake. Those two... So sweet, gentle and charming.

I can’t believe it's over 😕

After so much we are coming up to an end and with an amazing book.

Lake story is by far for me the best of all 3. Lake and Lee stole my heart with their pure love and understanding. Their passion and love to one mother brought me to my knees.

Love always win and seeing all my wonderful boys together (new and previous)makes this book so much better.

I received this book as an arc in an exchange of an honest review and that’s what I did.

Don’t miss this series!

I discovered this series by accident but once I started I couldn't stop and just in time for the last book to be released too. I loved all the boys but some how Lake was my favourite from the start and my love for him grew even more in this book. The friendship the three boys is amazing and at times had time had me in stitches add to the mix the girls omg there conversations were so funny loved this series finished all three in three days cannot wait to read more of Michelle's books. ...more

“What else do you need us to do?” Falcon asks. I shake my head. “You both still need to wrap things up with Serena and Clare. I’ll handle the rest, once I can figure out what that entails.” “You can’t just ask her?” Mason asks. “No.” I let out a heavy breath. “It turns out I’ve been texting with the damn mistress.” I lean forward and place my elbows on the table, and covering my face with my hands, I mumble, “It feels like I’ve been violated by a sugarless mommy.” Falcon busts out laughing, spraying me with the sip of soda he just took. “Noooo!” I shake my hands to get rid of the drops before I grab a napkin. “You’re so lucky I had my hands in front of my face.” Then I hear a snort next to me. I glare at Mason, watching him try to cover his eyes with a hand while his whole body shakes with laughter. “What’s a sugarless mommy?” Preston mumbles, not taking his eyes off the phone in his hands. Falcon cracks up and in the process, whacks a glass off the table. A waitress rushes over and quickly begins to clean up the mess. “I’m sorry,” I say to her. “I’m still trying to teach them how to behave in public. You know,” I let out a heavy sigh, “it’s not easy being a single parent and raising three kids on my own.” Mason almost explodes next to me when the waitress gives me a what-the-fuck-are-you-talking-about look. With a huge smile on my face, I watch him laugh.” 0 likes
