REVIEW: Captivated On 5th Avenue by Abbie St. Claire

Genre: Contemporary Romance


Author Abbie St. Claire brings you the 3rd installment in the 5th Avenue Romance Series. There is no cliffhanger in this installment, you will be captivated by the happily-ever-after.
What harm is there in having a little romance with the man next door?

Chelsie, a single mother, knows what it’s like to feel loss and regret. Her drive to wake up each day is her precious son Ty, but even her strength has its limits. The world was a cold and lonely place until she saw handsome sports physician, Ian move in next door.

Abusive, troubled, addict was the label everyone in his life gave him, and Ian lived up to that reputation until the day he discovered he was a father. When a horrible accident cripples him mentally and physically, his hard won sobriety is left hanging by a thread.

The attraction between Ian and Chelsie is electric, and they can’t help indulging in one night of passion. When Ian is forced to move to California, Chelsie keeps a secret that could harm them both. Can Ian overcome his addiction and prove he’s the man Chelsie has been dreaming of?

My Review
I want to start by saying I was NOT happy with Ian at the end of the second book. I was angry with him. Almost to the point that I hated him. Nothing he did made sense. Why did he do the things he did? Why did Chelsie still hang on? Why couldn’t she just  move on and forget that jerk?
Then I kept reading. I was still not entirely sold on Team Ian but I began to understand more. I really felt for Chelsie.  I just wanted the poor girl to be happy. She deserved it. But holy smokes do they take you on a ride!  Both of them are so stubborn! I wanted to throttle them several times.
I fell in love with this story in the first book. And Captivated gave me the ending that I needed for Chelsie and Ian. So  much heartache and misery for two people to go through, it makes it even harder to watch when you know they love each other so much.
The rest of the gang is back too and I can’t cant wait to see what Ms St. Claire does for them. There are two in particular that I need to know the details on!
If you are looking for a trilogy that will break your heart, make you want to throw things, make you hate the characters then fall in love with them even more, then you need this series. It’s perfect.
Any book that canmake me feel like this one did gets 5 well deserved captivated kisses
