My Review:
Wowee!!! What a wild ride this latest and last installment. Tristan’s and Brady’s story was so totally different from the others in this series. Cupid’s Last Stand had a beautiful innocence about it that the other stories didn’t have. This story was definitely a fresh and beautiful story that I just couldn’t put down.

Tristan was left at the alter and now he’s heading down to a town he used to love that was destroyed by an earthquake to escape. There he runs into his old and first love Darby a girl he had thought he long forgot. Now they’re working side by side to help rebuild the town where they had one summer together. Tristan knows he shouldn’t get attached since he plans on leaving but he can’t deny the attraction between them and even after ten years he’s falling for her all over again.

Darby’s had a hard life and the one summer with Tristan was a ray of sunshine until he left and she never heard from him again. Seeing him again is like peeling off a scab from an open wound but he won’t stay away. He’s wanting into her life again and while she’s determined to keep her heart out of it this time.

Well I mean you know they end up together right? But seriously it is a bumpy ride getting there. Tristan feels like he isn’t worthy or capable of love since everyone seems to leave, starting with his father. He deals with that a lot in this story. Darby deals with the fact that Tristan isn’t the guy she thought.

I honestly thought this last installment was more YA than Adult fiction. Tristan and Darby’s love seemed so less jaded and fresher since it was the first love. It was cute and adorable and brilliant. I honestly wouldn’t have expected anything less from Shauna Allen’s books. I love her writing and her stories and how all the other stories were woven into this one. I am so sad this was the last book but it ended amazingly and I couldn’t have imagined it any other way.

All in all, I loved Cupid’s Last Stand. The characters were amazing and realistic and beautiful. The writing was fantastic as always and the story was original.
