Review: Legally Ours by Nicole French (Spitfire #3)

 

Title: Legally Ours
Series: Spitfire Trilogy #3
Author: Nicole French
Genre: NA Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 14, 2017

Skylar Crosby knows betrayal. She knows the deep stab when those closest to you deceive your fragile trust. And she knows what it’s like when your secrets cost you everything––including the love of your life.

Now kidnapped, scared, and alone, Skylar has no reason to believe in her rescue. Not when she can still see the look on Brandon’s face when she smashed his heart to pieces. Even if Skylar can get out of her physical prison, can she escape the cage created by her guilt?

Brandon Sterling spent the last fifteen years desperately trying to reinvent himself: as a lawyer, a businessman, and now a candidate for public office. But as these daily stressors mount alongside a dangerous threat to his family and loved ones, the old Brandon reemerges: a ruthless hoodlum who’d rather use fists than brains to solve his problems.

Now, when the one he loves most is taken, can Brandon move past her deceit in order to find her? And if he does, will Skylar still want the man he’s become in order to protect her?

This is the third book in the Spitfire Trilogy. Readers will enjoy it most if they have already read Legally Yours (Book 1) and Legally Mine (Book 2).

PSA: I’ll be reviewing Legally Ours (book #3) from the Spitfire trilogy by Nicole French. If you haven’t read my review of Legally Yours (book #1) & Legally Mine (book #2) then I strongly suggest you check them out first HERE and HERE.

 

Now, the third book was a completely different story from the previous book. I cannot believe I went from skimming over pages to devouring every single word on my path. Legally Ours is by far my favorite from the entire series.

Legally Ours picks up exactly where book two left us hanging (again!). Skylar gets kidnapped by a very dangerous person that’s been haunting her family for a while now. Brandon saves Skylar from that danger but their relationship is still on the line. He’s still not able to forgive Skylar for hiding what she did from him and he doesn’t know if he ever will.

I really enjoyed reading the third book. It is not as drama filled as the two previous ones but I think it had the perfect amount after all the drama I had to go though to get to this book. It is also more romantic, definitely swoon worthy! And it had a bit of action towards the end. I say it has a little bit of everything, fun, romance, sadness, action, drama.

Brandon in Legally Ours is literally trying to Christian Grey’s doppelgänger but I’m not mad at it—well I was, during some moments but I’ll let them slide. Since the beginning of the book we can see that Brandon now has trouble sleeping. Somewhere between Skylar getting kidnapped and him taking care of her after being kidnapped, Brandon started getting nightmares. Through a huge portion of the book he refuses to get help because he “doesn’t need to be fixed”, which drove me up the freaking wall but in the end I liked how things turned out.
I loved the person he became nearing the end of the book. This “lighter” version of himself. A sweeter version. Like the weight of the world was lifted off his shoulders. We can definitely say he grew on me (and about darn time!).

Also, can we talk about the name of the book for a moment?! Okay. Because I bawled my eyes out when I read the epilogue and it said “legally ours”. Can’t say why because spoilers but it was the cutest thing ever. I about died reading the epilogue from Brandon’s point of view, he’s so sweet.

 

Reading the Spitfire trilogy was definitely like riding a roller coaster ride for me. I went from thinking the story had potential to being disappointed to it surpassing my expectations. All in all, these books kicked me in the butt but it was definitely worth it because Nicole’s writing is impeccable through and through and she is definitely someone you need to keep on your radar.

Nicole French is an East Coast/West Coast hybrid creature, Springsteen fanatic, hopeless romantic, and complete and total bookworm. When not writing or teaching about writing, she is hanging out with her family, playing soccer with the rest of the thirty-plus crowd in Seattle, or going on dates with her husband. In her spare time, she likes to go running with her dog, Greta, or practice the piano, but never seems to do either one of these things as much as she should.
