"Can he make her fall in love with him… again?
When Pagan Moore proved worthy of Death’s devotion, he was given the gift of getting to keep her.
But Dank was never promised that Pagan would keep him.
When a soul is created, so is its mate. In every lifetime those souls find each other. They complete the other’s destiny. It’s time for Pagan’s soul to choose if she truly wants an eternity at Death’s side or if she wants the mate created just for her.
Dank didn’t think he had to worry about her choice. He knew where her heart belonged. Until he realized that every kiss, every touch, every moment of their time together would be washed from her memories. He would have to win her heart all over again and prove to her soul that he was where she belonged.
If only her soul’s mate wasn’t right there standing in his way."


My Thoughts:

Ceaseless was an emotional rollercoaster and one that I loved. It was by far my favorite in this series and I was blown away by how much I enjoyed it. Also Pepe is on the cover so let us all take a moment to appreciate his lovely appearance. Any book with Pepe on it immediately draws my attention. 

If I am being completely honest (which I always endeavor to be with my reviews) I was very leery going into Ceaseless. After reading the summary I was all "oh come on! Really?" The last two books had a love triangle and then we finally get rid of Leif and then we have to deal with Jay now. I felt like it was such a typical way to go and just another way of including the ever annoying love triangle. However I am happy to admit that I was wrong. Abbi did a fabulous job with this and while I was frustrated at points with the characters I did love the story.

I think the reason I was able to enjoy this love triangle was the way Abbi handled it. By having Pagan lose her memories, it made it understandable. If the love triangle had erupted with Pagan remembering everything about Dank it would have been ridiculous. I would have never believed for a second that Pagan would have second thoughts concerning Dank after everything they had been through together. However, because she couldn't remember, it made it believable that she might have her attention divided. It also made her moments with Dank sweeter. Oh and speaking of Dank, watching him was heartbreaking. He had to see Pagan go on dates with another guy and he had to watch her not remember anything about him. I just wanted to hug him for the majority of the book.

One again Pagan and Dank have an incredibly sweet romance, despite the obstacles in their way. Dank is 100% devoted to Pagan and that just makes him very sexy and endearing and lovable. However he does have a tendency to be very dark and broody, but that just adds to his charm I think. He is damn near perfect in the paranormal fictional boyfriend department.

Like I said, this book is an emotional rollercoaster, but in the best way possible. You will go from happy to sad to frustrated over and over. There are moments that will break your heart and then moments that will turn you into a puddle of goo. I loved every single change in emotion I experienced and it is easy to become absorbed in this story. I am sad to see this series end, but the way it ended was absolutely perfect in my opinion.

All in all this is a great book and a great series in general. Abbi created a great world where Death is a person and she crafted a wonderful story around it. I will forever be thankful to the list on goodreads with all the books that have Pepe and Sztella on the cover. It is what first introduced me to this series and I immediately loved it. Please do yourself a favor and read this series.
