The Master (Manhattan Records Book 3) by M. S. Parker

This is the third and final book in the Manhattan Records series.

Nate: I made a mistake, thinking that I could be with someone like her. One glimpse of a part of me she didn’t like, and she ran. I’m not going to apologize for who I am. I had a life before I met her, and I’ll just go back to that life now. That will be best for everyone.

Ashlee: I had been a fool to trust him, to think that he was a better man than what everyone said. I didn’t need to be at Manhattan Records anymore. Making a clean break will be the best thing for both of us.

Nate Lexington and Ashlee Webb are trying their best to move on without each other, but neither one of them is able to forget how right they had felt together. If they’re willing to try again, however, will their relationship be able to survive the worst that has yet to come?

I’ve loved reading this series and I thought this book finished things off nicely. I enjoyed reading it, loved the characters and the storyline was great.

Ashlee really came into her own in this book. She’s been a strong character throughout, but in this book when everything went to hell, she found herself. Especially nearer the end when she just had enough and put her foot down.

Nate is great. He really developed as a character throughout the series, and became better because of Ashlee. He realised when he had messed up, and came to terms with how he felt and fought for her.

Together they were a great couple. They had their moments, but they started to talk about it and understood each other. They realised that they needed to be together outside of the bedroom as well. It was a great development.

There was a lot of drama in this book, but it all interlinked. I think Nate and Ashlee handled it well.

Finley has been great as well. I enjoyed seeing his relationship with Ashlee develop, as well as him getting to know her mum, and then his relationship with Nate too.

It was a nice touch to have Ashlee and her mum get their closure with Mona and the past.

I liked the ending and thought it was very fitting. It was satisfying to see Nate and Ashlee get what they deserved together. It seemed a little rushed though. I loved it when they both admitted their strong feelings together, but it skipped a proposal completely, and I would have liked to have seen that.

Overall, I really enjoyed this series. Nate and Ashlee have been great characters and I enjoyed the storyline. I would definitely recommend this series.

My rating: 5/5*
