A rock band. A reality show. A marriage on the rocks.
In the span of four months, Lily Montgomery has gone from touring with her best friend to marrying him. It feels like someone has stomped on the gas pedal that is her life. Right now she is more than ready to pump the brakes.
But that’s not how it works in the world of show business. Her new husband is off filming and recording more often than he is at home. He sees more of his beautiful co-star than his own wife. Lily is finding it harder and harder to distinguish between performing and reality, adding more stress to a marriage that the tabloids already wager won’t last the year.
Thank God for Jada Morgan.
Lily’s new assistant quickly becomes indispensable, covering The Void’s social media while Lily pursues her own writing. When Lily learns that Jada is temporarily rooming with Void guitarist, Xander Phillips, she isn’t concerned. Xander has hard-and-fast rules when it comes to relationships with women. The only way he’ll break Jada’s heart is if he breaks all of his rules.
Even with Jada’s support, Lily struggles to adjust to her new life. From her own personal stalker and ongoing family drama to the constant bombardment from the media, she’s quickly reaching her breaking point. She’s about to learn if marrying a rock star will result in a beautiful finale…or in absolute disaster.

Beautiful Finale was just that…a fantastic end to a great series! As we watch the mystery that’s been threaded throughout this series wrap up, we’re also treated to snippets of the different character’s lives, and to how they’ve changed and evolved. As always, we’re given the inside scoop into the interesting lives of this band and the situations that surround them. We get to peek behind the curtain into their daily joys and struggles. And, for me, that’s the beauty of Ms. Thomas’ writing – she mixes the exciting and entertaining with what feels like the every-day. It makes the characters so much more real and the story so much richer.
As with the other installments, we get a more intimate look at one of the band members in this book and, this time, it’s Xander, the guitar player with a beautiful heart. And, can I tell you…he became my favorite (please don’t tell Archer)! There’s just something about Xander. He’s kind and gentle and sexy as all get-out. He and Jada have wonderful chemistry and fun, interesting banter. I loved watching them figure out what they wanted and getting their happily-ever-after. Sigh. Of course, I also enjoyed seeing the other story lines play out and come to conclusion. Reading this book felt like visiting with old friends.
If you’re looking for a series with some twists and turns, some mystery, and a whole lot of wonderful romance…this just might be the one for you. There’s a lot to love here. And love it I did. I’m excited to see what Raine Thomas has in store for us next!
