This book reminded me how much I loved and enjoyed the True Calling series. Here are the links to my reviews of the True Calling series- True Calling (book 1), Beyond Reach (book 2), Light of a Thousand Stars (book 2.5), Destiny Rising (book 3).
Torn Apart- This book was from Cal’s POV which narrated the incident about how he was seperated from Ari at the end of the first book, i.e. True Calling. I definitely enjoyed reading from his perspective. I was not a big fan of Cal in book 1 but he slowly made his way to my heart by the end of the third book, so I could understand what he was feeling.
Endings and Beginnings- This story was narrated by Ari’s mom which tells us what went down between her, Nate (Cal’s dad) and Malcom (Ari’s dad). This was different but I definitely liked it but it was so heartbreaking to see what happened between them.
Perfect Moment- This was probably my favourite. I had already read this when I finished Destiny Rising but I loved reading it again! I absolutely love Zane and I was so glad to see him finally move on and find love again. Also Ari’s official wedding was fun to read about.
Under the Mistletoe- This story takes place after 2 years after the incidents of Destiny Rising. I loved seeing all the characters grown up and settled in their lives but what intrigued me was Lily and Deacon, Ari’s younger siblings, they were definitely not themselves and I’m soo glad we are getting a spin-off series about them! Can’t wait to read it!
Overall, The Short Story Collection was pretty awesome! It was a quick read and I enjoyed every moment of it. It felt great to be back in this world and it’s also one of the books that executed the love triangle perfectly! I hate… wait I loath them but this series was definitely an exception. The writing was smooth and perfect and I can’t wait to read more by this author.
