In the third and final book of the Fullerton Family Saga, long-simmering secrets explode with disastrous consequences. The fractured Fullertons face their biggest challenges yet, and every single one must rise to their own personal challenges and beat their demons once and for all - no matter what it takes.

In the conclusion of this best-selling, highly rated series, author Ginger Voight once again raises the stakes for her characters and her readers. These characters you have grown to love (and hate) are faced with heart-wrenching challenges that will test them unlike anything they've experienced so far. In the end, only love can save them. It is a message of hope, family and forgiveness amidst the exciting backdrop of excess and power.


I was still awake, and still livid, when Drew came to bed closer to midnight. He shrugged out of 
his shirt. “Such disapproval,” he murmured. “What exactly did I do now?”

“I’m still trying to wrap my mind around your using Jonathan to lure Alex into some kind of 

“I told you. It’s only a trap if he’s doing something wrong.”

“Whatever. In the future, leave Jonathan out of it.”

He cocked an eyebrow as he stood next to the bed, his hands on his hips. “Excuse me?”

“Whatever is between you and Alex has nothing to do with Jonathan. He’s a little boy torn in two 
with loyalty and affection for the both of you. I refuse to stand by and allow you to squander his good 
faith and his trust to make some kind of point.”

Anger sharpened his features as he stared down at me. “Allow me?” he repeated. “And who, 
exactly, gave you authority to question me on how I parent my son?”

“You did,” I told him. “You wanted Jonathan to have a mother, and now he has one. If you think 
you’re going to use him like some wadded up piece of tissue paper, you’re going to have to get through 
me first. I’m not just your paid flunky anymore. I’m your wife, and the mother of your children. This 
family will not run like your business. We work together – honestly and openly – or not at all. Got it?”

His eyes never left my face as he slipped out of his pants and crawled into bed. He wrapped his 
hand around the back of my neck and pulled me close, his mouth hovering just an inch over my own. 
“There’s that fire I missed,” he murmured. His mouth descended toward my own, but I resisted, pushing 
back against his hand while I met his gaze dead on.

“Got it?” I repeated.

A smile broke apart on his face. “Absolutely,” he answered.

“Good,” I said. “Goodnight, Drew.”

I slipped from his hand and turned my back to him, turned off the light and disappeared under the 

**Tissue Alert ~ Y'all know I love you and that is why I'm giving you advance warning that you're gonna need tissues for this one.**

I can't even begin to process the storm of emotions I'm feeling after finishing this book. I never envisioned this sort of ending for this family, even if it was rather fitting. Ms. Voight gutted me, honestly. And then, like the sun breaking through the storm clouds, she shone light on all the love and hope still remaining.

As y'all know from my previous reviews, this family's story has been intensely emotional. This installment was even more so. I expected the intensity to continue between Rachel, Drew, and Alex now that Rachel and Drew are married. I expected the drama courtesy of Elise, Jonathan's mother, as she continued to battle for custody and ultimately Drew's money. I might have even predicted the events surrounding Fullerton Enterprises, Inc's political ties. I did not, however, expect Ms. Voight to make me love Drew Fullerton. I've never been his champion in this series and I quite fell in love with the man in Enraptured. I LOVE HIM! And I ended up having quite the snot-fest over him. *sniff*

I'm so impressed with Ms. Voight's ability to convey how family dynamics and how one is raised, affects the people we become. If you lack love and/or approval growing up, it's something you crave and constantly search for. If you had those things, you want to share them with others. I relished Ms. Voight's belief in the transformative and restorative abilities of love. Bearing witness to Rachel's love and strength as she does her best to protect her children and heal the Fullerton family - including mending fences between the stubborn Fullerton men - was awe-inspiring. 

I can't even discuss more than how Enraptured made me feel. There are many things that occur in this final segment of the story. But at it's heart, this story has always been about love, family, and forgiveness. Drew and Alex gave much credit to Rachel for changing their lives and touching them with love - but their love for her was equally as life-changing. 

The Fullerton Family Saga is emotional ride. That Ms. Voight could evoke so much emotion from me (I'm still crying over this), make me completely change my stance about a character, speaks volumes about her writing. She's a must-read author for me and I highly recommend this trilogy.

Ginger Voight is prolific author, freelance writer and optioned screenwriter. Her fiction is diverse, with novels like the edgy, coming-of-age drama DIRTY LITTLE SECRETS, and the fun family adventure for kids of all ages, COMIC SQUAD. 

Having grown up reading different authors like Danielle Steel and Stephen King, Ginger has always been drawn more to story than to genre. This shows up in her various stories. Titles such as MY IMMORTAL and TASTE OF BLOOD are a delicious, heady mix of horror, suspense, and romance. Genre romance, however, has held a special place in her heart, ever since she read her first Harlequin novel when she was only eleven. As a result, Ginger is making a name for herself writing romances of her own, starring women who look more like the average American woman rather than those traditionally represented in the size-biased American media. Her Rubenesque romances were created especially for those heroines with fuller figures, who can still get the man of their dreams if only they believe they can. Such titles include UNDER TEXAS SKIES, LOVE PLUS ONE, THE GROUPIE TRILOGY, THE FIERCE TRILOGY and PICTURE POSTCARDS.

Ginger was included in the best-selling book by Smith Magazine NOT QUITE WHAT I WAS PLANNING, featuring her six-word memoir.

  2. Wow, I love how much this series has touched you, Brandee. I also enjoyed the teaser. One of these days I'm going to give Voigt a try!

    1. It sooo did, Andrea. I really feel like each book/series I've read of Voight's has just gotten better and better. Which is pretty amazing. This one really knocked me for a loop. But it's worth it. :)

  3. Brandee, that is an awesome review! This is a series I haven't started yet, but I want to read it even more now than before! I also absolutely loved the teaser! Way to go woman! You tell him *grins* I'm a little sad the giveaway is only US residents, though, even if I can completely understand it :)

    I hope you're having an amazing Wednesday, my friend! *BIG HUGS*

    Lexxie @ (un)Conventional Bookviews

    1. Thanks, Lexxie. It was a difficult review to write because I didn't want to be spoiler-y and really, it just made me *feel* so much. I'm still not over it. I'm glad you liked the teaser - I chose it because I really liked Rachel telling Drew off. :) I hope that you'll love this series every bit as much as me, dear.

      **BIG HUGS**

  4. It looks like this series rocked for you, thanks to your awesome reviews about this I am very curious! Glad to hear you really enjoyed the last book, it does sound like a tear-jerker.

    1. It so did, Lily. It was an incredible journey. I hope you love it, too, if you decide to give it a try. :)

  5. Okay, I really need to check this series out even if it's emotional. I run away from tearful stories because I'd rather laugh than cry but sometimes it's good to get carried away.

    1. *ha* I don't intentionally pick tearjerkers, Braine - well, at least not always. I wasn't expecting this book to pack quite the emotional punch it did. But I love this series!

  6. Great review Brandee. Loved the tease. Definitely going to check this one out.

  7. Oh wow Brandee!! You make me want to run out and get it! I love a good emotional story that pulls at your heart strings.... And I know I would bawl like a baby!!
    I wished I lived in the US to win a copy!

    Naomi @ Nomi’s Paranormal Palace

    1. I know I'm kinda sappy, Naomi, but I don't think anyone gets out of this read unscathed. The series is emotional and it's so very good. :)

  8. A sobbing end. Happy tears? Beside our buddy read, I'm reading another book and the dark foreshadowing already has me emotional. I just know the author is going to seriously break my heart! But I'm sticking with it. I'm glad you enjoyed the story so much! Wonderful review, Brandee!

    1. What other book are you reading, Robyn? And how can you read 2 books at once?!? *ha*

      I can only say it was a sobbing end, Robyn. But the story is brilliant, in my opinion, and I'm STILL recovering from it.


Now you know what I think...what are your thoughts??
