Review: For 100 Reasons - Lara Adrian
Billionaire Dominic Baine stepped into Avery Ross’s life when it was at its lowest. Obsessed with the beautiful, struggling artist, Nick was determined to have her. What began as a scorching seduction soon burned out of control, exploding into a white-hot passion neither of them could deny.
Yet Nick and Avery are two damaged people, both haunted by dark secrets with the power to destroy them. And for Nick, the ugly past that shaped him cannot compare to the unforgivable deception that drives Avery from his arms, from his life. Now the man accustomed to having everything he desires must find a way to redeem himself to the only woman he has ever loved.
Avery Ross has known heartbreak. She has known betrayal and loss, but nothing like the pain that loving Dominic Baine has brought into her life. Reeling from the aftermath of his devastating revelation, instead of allowing despair to break her, she builds herself into something stronger—the fearless woman and artist Nick’s passion has taught her to be. Yet her heart is in pieces, and despite everything she has, the one thing she needs is the man whose possessive desires and consuming love holds the power to either save them both or shatter her forever…

For 100 Reasons is the third book in Lara Adrian's erotic romance series and I'd definitely recommend reading these books in order! The story picks up about a year on from where things ended in For 100 Nights when Avery walked away from Nick in Paris after the revelations about the way he had manipulated her life. She's spent the last year focusing on her art and becoming a successful artist in her own right but she's never gotten over the way things ended with Nick, she hates what he did to her but there is a big part of her that misses him too. When they run into each other at a gallery event it's clear that the attraction between them still burns hot but can Avery learn to trust Nick again after everything he did to her?
I've really enjoyed this whole series so I'm kind of sad to say goodbye to Avery and Nick but I'm also very glad to see them finally figure things out and get their happily ever after. They've both made a lot of mistakes along the way and I appreciated the way they learned to forgive each other and both strove to be better in the future. They were willing to talk through their issues, although Nick still had a few things about his past that he wasn't quite ready to bring out into the open, and I loved that Avery stood up to Nick when he was too overbearing. She won't let any man walk all over her no matter how much she loves him and you have to respect her for that and the way she set ground rules before she considered giving Nick another chance. Nick realised the way he'd treated Avery was wrong and I think the fact that he'd stayed away because she asked him to showed a lot of growth of his character, the man she first met would have pursued her to the ends of the earth whether she wanted it or not but he's grown enough to realise that you can't treat people like a business deal and he learned to put Avery's happiness above his own.
Although this book wraps up Avery and Nick's story nicely I am wondering if we might get a story about Avery's friend Lita at some point, there were certainly hints at some interesting things going on between her and a certain rockstar turned CEO so I hope we get to see more of them. I'd quite like to find out more about artist Jared too! To be honest it doesn't matter what Lara Adrian writes next, she's a favourite author of mine and will always be on my auto-buy list.
