Review of P.S. It's Always Been You Part 3 by Lauren Blakely

Hi guys, today we'll be continuing our discussion on the brand new Audible Original serial P.S. It's Always Been You by Lauren Blakely (Part 3). As usual, we start with a brief disclaimer. The views presented in this post are 100% my own and are not intended to sway you in any way against or towards any particular direction. This is simply my honest thoughts of the book. Now let’s dive into the actual review.

Book Blurb

Devour the final installment in number one NYT best seller Lauren Blakely's sweeping, second chance romance - narrated by Scott Eastwood and Andi Arndt!


Hunter Armstrong sauntered back into my life unexpectedly, all lopsided grin, mischievous eyes and rugged determination. Not to mention a huge heart. He's nearly impossible to resist, but that's what I have to do as we follow the clues in a trail of love letters from a century ago.


But with every new twist in the story, this treasure hunter seems to set his sights more firmly on reclaiming my heart.


I desperately want to believe him, but the trouble is I don't know if I'm simply getting swept up in the past, or if we can truly try again for a brand new present.

P.S. It's Always Been You: Part 3 is the third installment in the P.S. It's Always Been You serial novel and should be enjoyed following P.S. It's Always Been You: Part 1 and P.S. It's Always Been You: Part 2.


All installments are available for unlimited listening in Audible Escape!

My Opinion


Rating - 3 Stars



Having now listened to the full serial, I am saddened. Throughout the first two installments, I kept telling myself that there was more to come, so there is still room to be wowed. But unfortunately, it remained merely an 'okay' read/listen for me.


The slow pace of the first two novels continued into the third, and the book ended with me not believing the love the characters told us they had for each other. I wanted to be swept off my feet with them to see and feel the butterflies that should have been there when they said I Love You.


What's strange is that I cared about the Valentinos. These were the characters featured in the love letters in the book (aka the minor characters). The love in the letters I believed wholeheartedly. The actual heroes of the story, however, whom I can't seem to recall their names right now even though I just finished to the third installment and have devoted my last three weeks to the story, I don't believe or care about. That in itself says a lot.


I think the Valentinos could have carried the weight of the serial on their own without the heroes. I mean, it would have been a five star for me if just the letters were presented as a book of letters or journal entries or something like it.


Keeping that in mind, as well as the fact that all three parts of the book were technically sound and narrated well, my final rating stands at a solid 3 stars. Had the love letters featured in the book been omitted, it would have been a shaky 2.
