For everyone who wishes things had ended differently… Pippa Croft is back with an uplifting new novella that concludes the Oxford Blue series.

You know what my biggest regret is? I never said I loved him.’
Nine months after senator’s daughter, Lauren Cusack, and aristocrat, Alexander Hunt, went their separate ways in Washington DC, the star-crossed pair are finally back on the same continent – though anything but a couple.
After failing to get the gorgeous but tormented Alexander out of her system, Lauren in is Paris trying to figure out what he meant in a mysterious call made a few weeks before he headed off on a secret mission. Could he actually have been about to propose?

But Alexander hasn’t been in contact since and she has no idea where he is or if he’s even alive. Then a phone call from his sister, Emma, begging Lauren to return to Falconbury, changes everything. Against her better judgement, Lauren agrees but there’s a big problem. It turns out Alexander doesn’t want Lauren on his estate or in his life ever again.

Is their relationship worth one last try? Alexander is adamant that Lauren should abandon all hope but she isn’t ready to give up on him yet.

One thing is certain. It’s going to take every ounce of Lauren’s strength and commitment if they’re ever to make the fourth time forever.

Firstly thank you to Pippa for my copy of this book. I loved the other books in this series so when I was browsing Goodreads and noticed there was a 4th book I instantly added it to my wishlist. Pippa who saw this was kind enough to offer me a copy. Some of you may know that the end of book 3 wasn’t quite how Pippa wanted Lauren and Alexander’s story to end and she has fought very hard to bring this novella to her readers.

Lauren and Alexander have always had an explosive tense relationship and I don’t think that will ever change. I won’t give any spoilers but this book had me on edge. there were some real heartbreaking moments and times when I really couldn’t see a way to recover.

I am very glad that Pippa fought so hard for this ending because it really is the perfect end to the series.  It showed the growth of all the characters but none more so than Alexander. When I think back to the way he was at the beginning of the series he really is a changed man and I think a lot of that is down to Lauren.

Now that the series is at an end, I know I’m still crying in the corner about that one, I am looking forward to seeing what new characters Pippa will create for us to fall in love with.
