This fall...This book was so awesome!! I was very excited when Cambria announced another book in the #Hashtag series and it came out not long after! What was it?! Two months?! Okay, so I was a bit sad that Arrow's book was put on hold, but how can I complain when we got #Bae?! The story was just so beautifully told. I couldn't wait to see how everybody's life had turned out, and now that I finally read it, I can say that the last book was absolutely needed to complete the series!! I simply loved it!!
That’s what happens when you get married.
Turns out sparkly rings, cake and a fantastic wedding do not automatically grant you that, not even when it’s all you truly want.
I’m even starting to doubt the bottomless, unconditional love I share with the man I married will be enough.
I can’t have happily ever after, know why?
Because I can’t give Romeo what he truly wants. I’ve tried. So hard. I won’t be happy unless he is and something is missing. Someone.
Paparazzi are in my face. The flashing cameras and prying eyes are everywhere. My secret is getting harder to hide, and I know the second the scoop is dished the grip I have on the fraying rope of that happily ever after will snap right in my face.
In our face.
I can’t let that happen. No matter what.
Because with or without a happy ending, Romeo comes Before Anyone Else.
In my opinion, it was very carefully written and everything happended at the right time. Not too soon or too late!! The only thing that had me a bit frustrated, was the description of the compound at the beginning. And that was because I couldn't wait to get to the rest of the story already!! Maybe it was a bit too long! Other than that, I found #Bae pretty compelling!!
Rimmel and Romeo where such sweethearts! I liked how Cambria managed to keep to their characters and make them appear more mature and all grown-up. Especially, with everything that's going on with the pregnancy and the paparazzi. It's sweet seeing that even though they both feel sort of depressed they choose to be strong for each other and put their feelings aside so the other can feel somewhat lighter!! And even after they confess to each other how they truly feel, their bond becomes much stronger and that is just amazing! To be honest, they are one of the couples that just stuck with me, no matter how many other books I read.
Braeden and Ivy on the other hand, they were EPIC. You can't have Rimmel and Romeo without Braeden and Ivy!! Just no!! Braeden was hilarious and made everything just a little bit less serious. I loved how supportive and compassionate he was with Rimmel and Romeo's situation and with Drew and Trent's relationship! And his approach to all the drama is always different from the others’, what with his jokes and all. And I believe that’s what makes Ivy love him even more. She and Braeden have accepted parenthood and their relationship with Nova is sweet and funny sometimes. Ivy is still the best friend Rimmel could ever have, which given the situation, is something priceless to Rimmel.
Now, Drew and Trent are another story. First of all, their book series "Gearshark" is one of my favourites. And I really, really liked that they had so many scenes in #Bae. Not just filler scenes, but scenes where we saw how they have managed to move forward, despite all the paparazzi drama. Aaand other "family" drama, that still remains to be solved. Trent, as usual, is the most understanding of them all and his relationship with Rimmel has gotten stronger. Something that I personally didn't expect, but I liked it all the same. All in all, they where perfect to me and I can't wait to see more of them in Arrow's book!! Please!!
And what can I say about the ending?! It was fan-freaking-tastic!! Everything just turned out okay if not better! It was fulfilling, touching and humorous all at the same time. We got to see another side to Romeo and Rimmel, which made them even more lovable! Honestly, they deserved everything they've got and more. Can't say there was any exaggeration or anything irrelevant. The story ended perfectly with a cherry on top!!!
I wholeheartedly recommend this book to anyone who's in the mood for something funny, touching, and filled with love and friendship!!
