****REVIEW**** Euphoria by Erin Noelle - Ashley's Review
Okay .. where can I start. I absolutely loved Metamorphosis (Book Boyfriends #1) and Ambrosia (Book Boyfriends #2) so it was no shock that as soon as I seen Euphoria (Book Boyfriends #3) was published that I was a one clicking whore. Okay, maybe not a one clicking whore but a gift accepting whore, but I got the book immediately!
In Meta we met Scarlett, Ash and Mason and the love triangle that had my stomach in knots for hours ensued. I will say that I've been Team Ash since the very first second he was introduced in the book. I understood the connection between Mason and Scarlett but it didn't compare to Ash and Scarlett's bond. I will say I was a tad bit upset when things didn't work out my way with the first book.
"She wasn't perfect, but she was perfect for me, and that's all I needed."
Ambrosia, a decision was made to end this love triangle once and for all, or so we thought. Still growing and learning, dealing with the tragedy that was forced upon her and learning to love, Scarlett finds what she believes to be her happily ever after, which DOES make me happy.
"I love you butterfly ... 'your curves and all your edges, and all your perfect imperfections.'"
Okay, so now we have Euphoria. I was very happy about how this book started. I was in love with the words and the bond between all the characters. I found closure in the past incidents and felt that Scarlett was growing as a woman. I was all ready for the cupcakes and rainbows. But life doesn't always work out the way we plan, does it? There's always something that happens that throws you off course. BUT let me tell you .. whether you're an Angel or a Butterfly, you're going to love the ending of this book .. it's a rough road to get to the HEA that we've all be yearning for since the first word written in Meta BUT when you finally get it, the heavens open and the choir is singing!
"You're my end and my beginning; even when I lose, I'm winning."
Erin, this book was FANTASTIC .. nothing else compares! I'm so happy to have read this masterpiece and can't wait to see what you pull out next. As sad as I am that The Book Boyfriend Series might be over, I'm excited that everyone has closure, everyone has something to look forward too and that Epilogue is the greatest thing. I was crying tears of sadness, tears of joy and tears of pride for being able to call you a friend!
"He and I were both lucky enough to be loved by someone as amazing as you, Angel. You know that you don't need either of the wings we adorned you with to fly on your own, but they're always here for you to remind you how much we both love you."
All in all, I'm giving this book 5 out of 5, I'll always be a butterfly stars.
