The path of true love was a bumpy one for Ava and Liam. He was her best friend's ex-boyfriend, son of a local politician and the campus playboy. She was a hard-working, single-minded scholarship student with no time for romance. They were the couple least likely to succeed.
But almost two years later, love is better than ever. Liam's pursuing his dream of being a college professor, and Ava's the rising star at a local ad agency. But Liam still has one more goal : marrying the girl who changed his life.
Neither of them realizes that making it to the big day might be their greatest challenge yet. Between his parents' acrimonious divorce and her family's ideas of how to plan the perfect wedding, it'll take the strength of their love - and a little help from their friends - to see them through to happily-ever-after.

This series seems to be all about lessons for me. We were introduced to Liam & Ava back in Best Served Cold (book 1) where I learned how I can really hold a grudge against someone. Just Desserts ( Book 2) had Liam & Ava hooking up and I slowly had to learn to love him and forgive him for his rude treatment of Julia. In I Choose You ( Book 3), I found myself getting all righteous when Julia's mother is aghast that Ava dare bring Liam to Julia's wedding. Hello woman, we forgave him in the LAST Book! Geesh, move on already!
There are so many things I loved about I Choose You. The mere fact that this is the third book with the same group of people and we get to watch them slowly grow and mature just tickles my happy bone. We start out with Julia & Jesse's wedding - which in itself makes me happy that we got to share in that moment. The stress of a wedding and Bridezilla makes Ava wonder if Liam is going to pop the question when his parents' marriage is in shambles. The moment he does - in a very unplanned unorthodox way, I melted because it was simply perfect. :sigh: I'm so glad I decided to forgive him and fall in love with him in Book 2! The wedding planning, family drama and struggle to stay sane amidst it all is more than many could handle but Ava seems to pull it off with flair. I definitely felt like the author was able to wrap up this couple's story with a bow on top. There aren't many stories where I feel like they ended where I wanted them to... I do hope that we get to take small peeks at Ava & Liam in future books but I am thrilled with the way their story ended for now :)
This series just keeps getting better and better. I love the characters complete with their own flaws, the sweet romance and steamy scenes! Tawdra has done it yet again and I can't wait to read more of her work!!
