I have been a dedicated fan of this series since the first book was released. As much as I completely adore the first three books, I believe that this is the best book of them all. This book was an emotional ride and I loved every minute of it!
The first three books in the series are about Kyle and Lily’s relationship. Beautiful Ties follows the story of Abbey, Kyle’s sister and Jason, Lily’s cousin. They meet for the first time at Kyle and Lily’s wedding and from there they both set off sparks. The chain of events that follow on from that night are exciting, exhilarating and amazing to watch unfold. They’re is a bit of hesitancy from Abbey at first but Jason slowly starts to break down her walls. The progression of their relationship is a bit fast but it makes sense for them as a couple as they are so intensely attracted to each other.
There is another little person that captures your heart in this book and she also steals the hearts of Abbey and Jason. Pearl is Abbey’s neighbour and she has had a hard time in her life. Abbey does everything she possibly can to make Pearl feel happy and loved, as her foster aunt doesn’t provide her with the love she deserves. Pearl often finds her way to Abbey’s house because she is usually left alone to take care of herself while her aunt is at work. There is no possible way that you couldn’t instantly fall in love with Pearl. She is definitely the highlight to the entire story!
I am so emotionally attached to this story; I laughed, cried and smiled from cover to cover. This series just keeps getting better and better, and I can definitely see the improvement in Alicia’s writing from Beautiful Chances to Beautiful Ties. It excites me to follow this story with Alicia and the characters she has created. There will be a fifth book released in June 2014 and I can’t wait to read Gail and Damon’s story.
