REVIEW: For 100 Reasons if the final book in the A 100 Series by Lara Adrian. In this final installment, readers get to experience Avery & Nick break up and reunion.
As the story begins we are fast forward to almost a year, Avery is conquering the art world and now she is popular and starting to be well known. She has moved on, and Nick while he is not out of her mind & heart she has tried to focus on her future. The story picks up pace and we are re-introduced to these characters. Avery doesn’t regret her time with Nick, but she regrets all the secrets and lies they both hid from each other.
As her mind and heart still ache for the man she fell in-love with – she is trying to live past her failures and focusing on her new future. As she come face to face with Nick once again, and in almost the same manner in which they first met, Avery can’t deny the attraction and the need is still as raw and intense and it ever was. It is fascinating to see these two very different characters come to terms with their demons. At times the author portrait a very vulnerable yet strong characters that we didn’t get to see in the first two installment.
This time around Avery seems to be the anchor in the story, the one that is pulling things together while Nick is the one trying to come to terms with a past that does not allow him to move forward. I enjoyed the story and the way things developed. Avery as well as Nick had a lot of unsolved issues and they knew that they couldn’t move on without facing them. Adrian did a superb job bringing to light Nick’s demons and she beautifully exploit them in order for the reader to understand his past actions. While the story doesn’t purposely try to justify Nick’s actions, it is hard as a reader to not see the reason behind it, his failures served as a base for his desire to see Avery triumphant by becoming that who he could not be. Lara Adrian does a great job showing us a very insecure and vulnerable Nick, while his fears do not supersedes his need for Avery, they certainly make an impact on his ability to come forward about his past.
I enjoyed how Avery and Nick found each other again. While their story is filled with angst, raw emotions and very painful situations these characters found strength is their tragedy and by doing so their love and story meant so much more. For 100 Reasons is a great way to bring this series to an end, these characters found closure on each other and the support and love. Lara Adrian once again proves to be on top of the game, she delivered a story that fulfill the need for love, passion, sensuality, sexuality and erotism without taking away the importance the suffering of these characters tragic past. The 100 Series will forever stay in my heart and will be as one of the 2017 most romantic stories.
