Naughty Mom Review: Anchor (The Wake Series #3) by M. Mabie



synopsis (2)

I believe in love at first sight.
Now I know soulmates exist.

Nothing has ever been easy for us.
Every fight, every struggle, has been worth it.

I’m stubborn, but what woman isn’t?
She’s hard work and I love the overtime.

He’s frustrating and unpredictable. I hope he never changes.
I love driving her crazy. That’s half the fun.

Lou’s sexy curls.
Honeybee’s pink nose.

He still looks at me like I’m precious and unflawed.
She treats me like I’m the center of her world.

Our future will be full of happiness.
Despite everything, we’re two of the lucky ones.

I took the bait.
She was a lucky catch.

He is the wind in my sail.
She’s the anchor that grounds me.

The wake our love made is beautiful.
Every day I thank God for her.

No matter the hurdles, we’ve jumped them side-by-side.
No matter the obstacles, we’ve made it through together.

For better or for worse, I’d do it again.
I’ll love and protect her all the days of my life.

We made it.
We always will.

Anchor was a wonderful conclusion to The Wake Series novels.  It tied up loose ends and focused on the characters working to achieve their “happy endings.”

Anchor, picks up immediately where Sail ended and we find Blake recovering from the Grant incident.  While Blake recovers, Casey has grown close to Blake’s family.  They didn’t get to meet under the best circumstances, but his devotion and love for Blake has give them a good impression of him.

12047029_1688736611359385_5904011980157303916_nOnce recovered, the bond between Blake and Casey only grows deeper.  Now that they have the past in the past and Blake has given in to her love for Casey, things only get better between them.  This gives the story the finale that the characters deserve.

Now I do have an issue with how they handled the Grant situation.  As i read that part of the story, I was like What. The. F*ck?  I completely disagree with how that issue was closed.  It sort of caused the story to fizzle a bit for me.  My anticipation for Anchor deflated a bit with the disappointed that part of the story left me with 😒.


I do still ♥ Casey.  He has always been a favorite of mine.  He was always such a gentle man filled with an intense love for Blake…even when she didn’t make it easy for him. He stuck it out; which was a testament to his strength and will to fight for what he wants and loves. And the friendship that he and Blake has, was just as strong as ever. Even after everything they went through, they still had the ability to joke, tease and talk to each other in the cutest way.  Their shared sense of humor was comical and entertaining.

Anchor was a quick read that provided a subtle and sensual ending to a hero I loved from the beginning and a heroine I learned to love.
