I've always loved Ben. He reminds me of my grandfather in his quiet strength and handy/farming ways. Shannon's always been the mum everyone loves and wants as their own, so after all the suffering she endured from Poohead Miles, I was relieved she'd eventually get her HEA.
Oh, and the romance and heat? It was so very well written, beautifully crafted and tasteful. Even mums and dads need their action, ha ha ha.
PS SO LOOKING FORWARD TO GRACE'S STORY. #FREEASHERBAILEY

I’m really quite sad! Not sad because I didn’t like this final instalment but because… well… it’s done. Finished. Having already read the Bailey Brothers series, I know that the Miles family feature quite regularly within these books too… but I will miss all these amazing characters so much.
There’s a certain harmony within this final book and with pretty much all the drama over that the family encountered within the first four books, this story really serves as a neat little bow around the perfect gift package. And that is a definite nod to the way Ben Gaines pursues the woman he has loved for the last 20plus years.
We’ve learned quite a lot about how Ben fits into the Miles family dynamic. He’s been a much loved father figure to all the Miles siblings for 25 years. He rescued a naked 2year old Cooper who’d run off into the vineyards (of course he’s naked, it is Cooper!!) and that’s when he knew where his new place in life was going to be. Ben was trying to escape his traumatic past, but that single moment when he returned the toddler to his mother Shannon secured his heart to this beautiful family.
Ever since he’s watched them grow, taught them about life and stepped into the fatherly role that their own father neglected to fill with any success. The love he has for all the Miles children is like the love he’d have if they were his own. To him, they were his, in all but blood and name. But, for years he’s held a torch for their mother Shannon.
Staying permanently on the sidelines, he’s loved her from a distance, awaiting the opportunity to declare his love for her. With her divorce final and Lawrence Miles firmly behind bars… their clocks are now in sync. All he needs now is the go ahead from Roland, Leo, Cooper and Brynn, to finally date their mum.
Of course, all the siblings and their respective partners are more than happy at this development and offer their full support. As much as Ben is sure of his feelings for Shannon, he’s unsure if she feels the same way about him. So, he calls on Zoe, Shannon’s much admired and loved daughter-in-law for advice.
Shannon Miles has certainly earned the right to happiness. She’s raised her family pretty much single handedly, run a successful business, developed and built a strong reputation and all while her dead-beat adulterous husband fathered another family, ran up massive debts and got himself involved with a drug cartel. That’s enough for any woman to put up with in a lifetime.
What I love about Shannon is she’s a badass! She’s strong, wise, nurturing and caring. No matter what life has thrown at her or her children, she’s been resilient and faced everything with courage and determination. So when Ben sets his sights firmly on her heart, it’s so deserved.
I love the way these two finally get it together. They’ve hidden deep feelings for each other for so long that when they do give into it, their love for one another doesn’t wait to build… it’s already there and there’s no holding them back. It’s their time now… the kids are all grown up - two of them being parents themselves and the other two happily on their way there too.
They’ve waited long enough to be together so why wait any longer for forever. And they take their love firmly in both hands and run with it.
What a fantastic ending to a brilliant series. I’m seriously going to miss theses guys and even though I know they are all happy and loving the lives they’ve worked so hard for… I’m sad because it’s the end. I’m seriously going to miss Cooper. I love him soooo much as a character. His energy, his antics, his passion, his love, his loyalty and his complete devotion to every member of his family. So incredibly endearing and heartwarming! I honestly believe we all need a Cooper in our lives. So pleased for Shannon and Ben, and it’s great that they both get their happy ever after… as do all the family.
I cannot recommend this book series enough. It’s a real page turner and I’ve loved every chapter, even when it’s made me cry but most most definitely when it’s made me laugh out loud and smile. Kingsley is a genius at pulling you in to every one of her characters. I feel like I’ve loved every moment with them all and I almost feel like they are real people which is a real talent indeed.
Can’t wait to start my next Kingsley adventure.
Shannon and Ben's story is a wonderful way to end this series, loved every bit.
Can't wait to read more from Claire Kingsley.
They are so good I'm about to start her following book,and can't wait.
Bye Happy Reading.
