Sophie’s Encore — The Blurb

Her rock star is waiting in the wings, but will he get a second chance?

It’s all change for Sophie Jonesonly this time, there is more at stake than just her happiness.

Rock star extraordinaire, Dan Hunter, has been her patient and caring friend through the highs and lows since her wedding day, but now he figures it is time for her to start over. By stealth, the rock singer draws Sophie into the behind-the-scenes work for his band’s latest album. Through the days and weeks spent together at the mixing desk, Sophie discovers whole new horizons for her life, yet before she can even begin to explore them, she faces the very real threat of losing her rock star for good.

Join Sophie and Dan in Sophie’s Encore to find out how their journey will end…

**My thoughts**

I fell madly in love with Sophie back in Sophie's Turn (read my review here). She made me laugh and kept me on a roller coaster ride with her rock star love affair. Her adventures in Sophie's Run kept me glued to the Kindle (read my review here), even if I didn't completely agree with her choices. I couldn't wait for this third and final installment to be done and was honored when Nicky contacted me with an advance review copy. It did not disappoint.

Sophie has been through a lot in the past several years since we left her. She is now the proud mother of a little boy and girl. She is also a single mom, having lost Steve a few years ago. Dan has been by her side, the ever-doting best friend who is still obviously madly in love with her. She is still in love with him, but can't seem to admit it to herself and feels guilty for even thinking so. She has to learn to let go and to forgive herself and Steve, so that she can move on and start her life up again. It's not an easy task, but our fearless heroine is equal to the task when she sets her mind to it.

You can already guess how this story is going to end. I was a little confused in the first few chapters, until I got all of the backstory about what had happened during the past few years, and then I could see the path unfold. The little tricks and turns along the way are what keep you foraging ahead to get to that wonderful ending. I love the choices that Sophie makes for her life and how she finds herself again. It's a total dream come true for her, and one that I wouldn't mind living in some bits and pieces. After all, don't we all have that rockstar fantasy?

Reading through this final installment in the series gave me the hankering for going back and rereading the entire series. You can see how Dan and Sophie's relationship comes full circle and want to experience the entire saga all at once. 

For those looking into this series, I recommend reading it in order, so that you don't miss out on a single morsel of this relationship.

I am going to miss Sophie and Dan, but look forward to some future offerings that Nicky has planned for us readers!
