I have loved this series from the moment I first read Lengths and I impatiently await each new book that these amazing authors write, wanting to see which characters will be next and what happens next. Lengths is the chance for Genevieve, Cohen's little sister, and Adam to have their say.
Genevieve is still unhappy about Deo marrying Whit, and Cohen and Maren getting engaged. Everyone has what they wanted, her brothers are happy and live alone, her sister is happy, and Genevieve is stuck at home, failing hard at school and still looking for that one person who she can fall in love with. Adam is her tutor who is trying to get her grades up and make sure she passes the class, he knows she is smart and clever, and he tries so hard to make her believe in herself. When Genevieve finds out that Adam will be sent back home the only solution she can think of is marriage, and quickly.
"Marry me, Adam." Genevieve looks at me, her hands come up to either side of my face and grip it hard. "Marry me and be my tutor."I kinda failed at keeping notes for my review while reading this book. After the first few notes I made I could to pause to make a note, I had to keep turning pages. Adam and Genevieve don't have a traditional relationship, they go from tutor/student to husband/wife in such a short space of time, and we get a front row seat at watching them learn how to love each other, live together, and learn all about each other all while keeping up the front of a married couple that had been together years rather than days.

While I had doubts about this relationship actually working, I am happy to say I shouldn't have had any doubts at all, this couple works together amazingly well, they are one of the most perfect fictional married couples I have read about. They take the time to make things perfect for the other and spend quality time together learning about what makes the other tick. Yes they have disagreements and fights, but this makes them more real, what marriage or life with a partner goes without its squabbles?
If you find that one person who believes in you, helps you combat your doubts, lifts you up when you are ready to lay down and say 'screw it'? If you find that person, grab tight. So tight. Never let go.I loved getting to see some familiar faces from previous books, Deo and Whit, Cohen and Maren. While Genevieve may not think a lot about Whit and Maren, they are friendly and welcoming towards her, and even give her some words of advice. They all accept Adam into their lives, although being older brothers or males in the 'family' they initially give him a hard time and make their point about how they feel if Genevieve got hurt.

I read Limits in a few hours, but I felt sad once I had finished. I loved the book, there was not one thing I would change, but by finishing it, it makes it more real that I am coming closer to the end of an amazing series, and I really don't want the end to come. Steph and Liz have consistently published amazing books together, books that have a way of not only drawing you in, but also of crawling under you skin and making you addicted to these characters and to the world they have created. I own every book in this series on my kindle but I intend to buy physical copies of each one to sit among my most treasured books on my shelves.
Steph and Liz both took time out of their busy author lives to answer a few questions for me, below are the questions and answers. Since both authors answer, their answers will be colour coded. Liz is mauve, and Steph is blue.
Thank you ladies for an entertaining interview, I am looking forward to seeing what else is in the works and I am beyond excited for Ties, the next instalment for this fantastic series.
