A young man seeks redemption from his past in the third novel from the No More trilogy by Amazon Charts and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Kerry Lonsdale.

After serving six months in a juvenile detention center, Lucas Carson returns home irrevocably changed by what happened there. Traumatized, Lucas shuts himself out from everyone he loves, even his younger sister, Lily, who ran away from home when she was pregnant at sixteen. When Lily resurfaces years later, Lucas can’t cope with his guilt about not being there for her. He takes off, only to cross paths with Shiloh Bloom—fifteen, homeless, and, like Lucas, escaping the past.

All Lucas sees in her is the little sister he neglected. Believing this is his chance to absolve past mistakes, he takes Shiloh in. He gives her food and shelter. She gives him a purpose. Together they invent a background for her and form a bond. But the risk of discovery grows. Lucas’s sisters aren’t the only ones looking for him. So are Shiloh’s mother and the police. If Lucas wants to heal and have a future, he must stop running and face everything he’s left behind.

This is the book three and the final book of the Carson sibling story, this time told in Lucas’s story.

Lucas is trying to get his life back to together after a stint in juvenile center for a crme that he did not commit. He meets a fifteen year old homeless girl named Shiloh and soon ends up helping Shiloh even though the girl was initially reluctant to get Lucas’ help. Meanwhile. Shiloh is running away from an abusive home and is on her way to Hollywood with the hopes of becoming a movie star.

This was a bit emotional and the author did a good job portraying Lucas character more sympathetic which as a reader would feel sorry towards Lucas. I do like how Shiloh and Lucas seemed to be having an understanding with each other. The story itself was realistic and I really like how the author wrote the story, making it more realistic. I enjoyed reading the first two books and I was glad that I manage to get hold of the third book. Overall, this book worth five stars in my opinion.

Many thanks to Natgalley and Lake Union for the ARC. The review is based on my honest opinion only.
