"Just go through the motions. Follow the routine. Once you start, the rest follows. Like a wheel set in motion, the cogs will turn until existing becomes second nature again. " After the ending in book two, my heart was shattered Not only did I feel Ian's betrayal I worried how things were going to play out for Cas Some of my fears materialized But Cas - being the strong women she is found a goal, if you will, and has every intention of balancing the scales This final episode picks up a year after the literal cliff we were left on Only it looks like not everything is as it seemed and many are not playing by the rules anymore Cas wants revenge Wolfe wants to wrap up loose ends and his obsession has only grown Ian, well I am not spoiling that Be prepared - this is one twisted discovery after another Packed with action and suspense and so many "holy chi" moments A few tissues and teddy moments that will stay with me long after I leave this couple behind Some of my favorite characters from previous books play front and center roles This may be one of my favorite endings

I was gagging to get my mitts on this final book especially after that astounding and shocking cliffhanger we were given in the previous one. This is the continuation and conclusion of Ian’s and Cas’s story and this actually begins a year later. I personally would have preferred it to start straight after but I still followed where this went avidly even as it slightly broke my heart at the same time. Ian is still very much grieving while Cas is a changed woman after being nursed back to health by the local villagers she’s now out for revenge on the man she believes ordered her death while Ian is still under the mistaken assumption that she betrayed him. When these two again connect things don’t go quite to plan and they both find themselves running for the lives from a vengeful cop who wants Cas silenced and Ian’s head on a block. This was fast-paced and well written it had some truly painful moments and both Cas and Ian have to deal with the fallout from the past. We get to meet up again with Damian and Leon also reared his head. Ian also proves just how far he’ll go to protect the woman who completely owns his heart whilst Cas just wants to save him right back. Got to say though my favourite part of this whole book was that elevator scene with Damian that was pure viewing gold absolutely hilarious and I greatly appreciated the touch of humour this added. This series has been a rollercoaster one that I’ve enjoyed greatly it’s a trilogy so does need to be read in order and I definitely recommend it this author always manages to suck me right into the action investing me and spinning such a gripping yarn a definite auto-buy now for me. I’m looking forward to experiencing Leon’s story next. I voluntary reviewed a copy of Stolen love. (Beauty In The Stolen, #3).

It feels surreal that Ian and Cas' story is over. This trilogy has been so amazing, heartbreaking, and action-packed from start to finish. Stolen Love felt different from the second book but the feelings and emotions were just as turbulent. Charmaine Pauls did an exceptional job tying up all the loose ends for our hero and heroine by leaving us with a future that is bright and with so much potential. A lot has happened since the events in Stolen Life and with that heart-wrenching ending, I was waiting with bated breath for their eventual reunion. Let's just say I was not disappointed. Despite everything, Ian and Cas are incredibly still in love with each other. However, there are painful consequences that must be addressed. I am completely satisfied with what Ian decided to do in the aftermath of that ending. Charmaine Pauls has crafted a love story that is full of angst and emotion since the beginning and this last book in the trilogy is no different. I would say that it's the most action-packed and suspenseful out of the three. Cas is a changed woman. Parts of her remain the same but her heart is gone because it was given to a thief by the name of Ian Hart. So many revelations, truths, and misunderstandings between the two are finally brought to light. The story begins with Cas who has decided to track down Ian to enact revenge. At first, I was really confused but then I also understood where she was coming from. However, I also knew that things weren't going to go as planned. The love that these two had for each other, despite everything that has happened, was my favorite part of this book. They're soulmates, plain and simple. In the end, Stolen Love was an outstanding ending to the trilogy and will absolutely leave you on the edge of your seat and in tears while wanting more. Might I say a book for Leon Hart and his special someone? We also get a special appearance from Damian Hart and Lina! Zoe and Maxime were also mentioned. I loved Ian and Cas so much. Their love story started off dark but it became so much more. To Ian, Cas is the only one for him and vice versa. If you love reading books with a badass hero and heroine who go through so many trials and tribulations to be together, then I highly recommend this trilogy! You won't regret it!
