Book three of this interconnected series concludes with messes and scars, heartbreak and forgiveness, and love that’s worth it all.

Some love is messy, some love is hard,
But in the end, it’s worth every scar.

Levi broke me. He took my heart and smashed it into pieces.

Until one day, one glance, one tragedy…

“Take my hand
Take my whole life too
For I can't help falling in love with you” E. Presley

I fell so sorry for Raina... Dean on one side and Levi on the other... cruel decision...
But in love there is no logic. The heart wants what it wants.

This very well too written part had a lot of angst and drama.
Hard decisions had to be taken, some people would be happy and others wouldn’t.

The development of the characters and the plot was fantastic and I loved the realistic atmosph
Lilith  Seven  *DirtyBooksAndMessyHair*


Another and last installment in the you and me series.
Raina has to make the ultimate choice of choosing between the man who she loves with all her heart and the man who loves her with all his heart.
Till the end , it was hard to know what will be her choice. I was so frustrated with Levi 's behavior but I just couldn't come to hate him..

Book 3 in the You and Me series and it was just amazing. You need to read the other two books first and trust me it will be worth it. This was a perfect end to this series. I was on an emotional roller coaster ride that started with book 1 and now I was able to step off and it was worth the ride. Loved Levi and Raina finally being able to get the HEA they both deserved.

Wow - I have waited patiently for the last installment in Raina and Levi's love story and Lyssa Cole you did not disappoint. Filled with parts that had me wiping ugly tears from my cheeks to parts that had be sighing with happiness this book was wonderful. Each and every hurdle the two had to overcome were beautifully written. Levi ripped my heart out numerous times and then with his inner strength put me right back together again. Raina's self doubt could be a reflection in many people's mirror ...more

Lyssa Cole is seriously so talented; with each book she produces her talent shines through. I’m so proud of the journey she’s taken, and these characters have gone through a hell of a lot. I’m not a crier when it comes to books, but Lyssa had me on the verge of crying, but I held it in, but she messed with my emotions in this book…. She is pretty lethal with what she puts her characters through, but at the end of the day, they tell a story and that’s what I love about her writing. Even though Ly ...more

This book is the third book in the series and needs to be read in order to be able to follow the story and it flows beautifully. The #3 in the You and Me and it really is a fantastic conclusion to Raina and Levi's love story, and boy what a love story it is.

Raina has been by his side throughout it all, everything what is happening now and her feelings are still as strong as ever even though she has someone waiting at home for her, Dean. She is being pulled in two directions in her mind but in he

WTH! How is it that I wanted to strangle Raina and Levi throughout a good portion of this book and still be madly in love with it and them? Eek. Oh I know why. Because they feel like real life people who have flaws. OMG I had a knot in my stomach most of this read. I was literally yelling at the characters “no” what are you thinking?”, “stop, this isn’t going to end well,”... you get the idea. What a crazy read.

You are going to laugh at me but the saving grace for this book is “the other guy”.

I loved this whole series, from start to finish there was heartache, heartbreak and love like no other.

Levi is trying to get his life back on track and after unexpected words from someone he doesn’t really know, he talks to Raina, and they agree to be just friends. She is the light to his dark, and she is determined to help him at all costs. But sometimes a stupid decision makes things much much worse and when Levi finds out what she’s done, he is fuming, and makes the situation worse.

Raisa and Levi's story is wrought with barbed wire, pain and angst. "Forever Yours" Raisa says as Levi breaks both of their hearts. I seriously wanted to smack him in the back of his head. There is a lot of "water under the bridge" between Raisa and Levi that, just when you think it will work it doesn't. This story is an emotional roller coaster. Beauty can come out of pain and their love is a shining example. Apart they were lackluster, together they shine. This is a story of finding oneself an ...more

I have anxiously awaiting book three after how book two ended and what an emotional ride it was. Lyssa truly ripped my heart out with these characters and all the emotions. I found myself internally screaming for them to stop doing what they are doing and realize how they are two pieces of the same puzzle and need to be together. The growth of Levi in this read, despite all the setbacks, filled my heart. My only complaint was I wish Raina had a little more growth and strength added to her charac ...more

I loved the wrap up of Levi and Raina's story. They finally got their HEA but It was not an easy road. The two had to find themselves to find a way to become a them. It was heartbreaking but in the end I think the author made it so when they finally could be together it was better for them and their relationship. ...more

Holy crap, I have tears on my face and a smile wider then the Grand Canyon!! When Lyssa Cole gave us a sneak of this story I didn’t want to read because I wanted it ALL at once. I feel as if Lyssa Cole got into my head, saw my past, my struggles, my loss and put it into words that I never knew I needed. Yes, this series hit home in SO many ways. I absolutely love these characters and I can’t wait to see more of them especially Drew and Mabs!! L

Maybe YA insta-love story was not for me..I thought both MC were weak..
In the final book, I really didn't really care how two MC ended.. only thought that both Drew and Mable were really good friends!
It's been a romantic journey full of tears, heartbreak, and angst for Levi and Raina throughout these three books and by the turn of the final page I was exhausted! This couple was put through the wringer from the very start with readers right beside them watching as the pain of addiction and self-doubts left them battered and bruised. Theirs was a realistic journey that Ms. Cole never sugar-coated or veered away from, every emotion and decision not always the right one but understandable. These ...more

I voluntarily reviewed an advance complimentary copy of this book.

Wow, what a great conclusion to the You & Me Series! FOREVER YOU is book 3–have to read books 1 and 2 first—and it is a roller coaster of emotions that you will not want to put it down. Filled with hard-won wisdom. . . a perceptive and revealing book. This book was captivating, entertaining, and intriguing. I have to say, Lyssa Cole did a fantastic job in making me live in a world I am oblivious to—she dazzles us with her heady de

Holy angst. This couple has emotionally drained me, and yet I can't get enough. They make me so frustrated, yet I still love them. They can be so toxic together, yet I still wanted them to end up together. I have had so many conflicting emotions while reading their love story, but it's so *real.*

I usually stay away from love triangles, but this one was just so painfully beautifully. The love between Raina and Levi and then between Raina and Dean is night and day different, but our girl gets som

I'm not an emotional female with the exception of rage from stupidity, but Lyssa Cole tried to kill me with emotion as I lived Levi & Rai's story and my eyes tried to go rogue & leak more than once. You HAVE to read these in order no matter how much pain you will be put through because otherwise, it just doesn't mean as much. I'm always the one who loves the first boy in the triangle, with that second boy I don't end up loving for whatever reason, but that wasn't the case with Dean. I'm not sayi ...more

“It wasn’t the same, Levi. I didn’t love Dean the same way I love you. Dean... he was... I don’t know. Easy. A distraction. Our love was hard. Intense.” “Hard?” “At least I didn’t fall in love with someone else!”

My heart! What a beautiful conclusion to this heartbreaking love triangle. Well written, realistic and thought provoking story, with incredible characters. Love isn’t pretty, it can be ugly, nasty words and stupid actions can’t be taken back. Our hearts know what they want, but sometimes

Oh my goodness. The emotions. The heart breaks. The struggles. The epic love. The HEA. The plot twists. It will have you all in your feelings and hooked from page one. But you have to read the first two books before this one.

Raina is still growing in her maturity. She had to finally realize what she wanted and how she was going to handle things. Even when she knew she was wrong, she had Levi’s best interest at heart.

This is the 3rd book in this phenomenal trilogy and Levi and Rai’s story continues. Rai is the light to Levi’s darkness, and she refuses to leave his side no matter what he says to her. Life and relationships can be messy at times and we are all human we make questionable decisions and choices along the way, which applies to the main characters in this story. This is a beautifully written flawless story which is and emotional roller coaster journey throughout, as well as being a heart-wrenching ...more

There's so much love, hurt, and pain between Levi and Raina. Can they forgive each other and find happiness together?

We've been to hell and back with Levi and Raina. The final installment in their story is no different. Their angst factor is still off the charts. However, this time around they have grown. They are now able to overcome the hurdles they face. We are rewarded with seeing them finally find their HEA.

I hoped for a HEA for Dean as well. My heart still hurts for good guy Dean! Maybe in

Oh lord this book had my heart and emotions in a spin for most of it. This is the last book in Levi and Reina's trilogy and they must be read in order. If I thought Lyssa couldn't put them and me through anymore angst surprise there was even more. Both Levi and Reina frustrated me I wanted to bang their heads together and make them talk to each other. Levi's is almost unrecognisable from the guy we met in book one seeing him take responsibility and want to do better for himself made me very happ ...more

This book brings this heart tugging, emotional roller coaster ride of a series to its conclusion. Raina and Levi's story has been long and painful. These two honestly will make your heart ache as their love struggles to overcome the mistakes and challenges they face along the way. one moment I found myself wanting to offer comfort and a sympathetic ear to these characters and the next I would want to shake them and ask them "WTH??!!".

Oh my goodness!!!! Raina and Levi's happy ever after finally came after tearing me apart, breaking my heart and then putting it back together. I spent a good portion of this book, well all 3 books actually, shaking my head at their actions, yelling at them in my head (wouldn't want my husband to KNOW I'm crazy, right.), wanting to throw my tablet against a wall but then crying and loving them through it all. Lol. What an emotional rollercoaster Lyssa Cole put us all through but so worth it. Levi ...more
