Lizzy is now my most favorite female character of all the books I have read. She gives Mal a run for his money on the funniness. Her snarkiness, her sarcasm all make her so awesome. But she also feels deep. While she isn’t easily hurt and when she is, she puts on a very brave face and tries to hide it, when shes hurt, she feels it deep. But she also is very tolerant and understanding. She gets things. She is easy going. She makes the perfect women for Ben.
Ben has always been the quiet one of the group. You have always known he’s around but he was never one to speak up. If he had something to say, he said it and it was usually important but other then that, he kept to himself. He was the quiet bassist. But from the very beginning, way back in Play, you knew there was something between him and Lizzy. You saw slight changes in him. But in Deep, you got to really see Ben. You saw how he thought, you learned more about him. And he is deep. He is totally committed to his life as a rock star. He lives for the music.
I have to say that Deep is very personal to me. It actually reflects my life in a lot of ways. Take the rock star part out, and there are a ton of similarities in the events of Deep and my life and I have to say, Lizzy handled it a lot better than I did in the very beginning. But like me, she persevered on. This was how her life was going to go and she was going to go with the flow. I know how hard that is. But Lizzy handled it.
Kylie Scott, thank you for this series. Thank you for the last 2 years of these characters. I have loved them and I have loathed them. But in the end, I am very sad to see them go. I know I can always just open up my Kindle and reread all about them but I will miss them. I want to know what their futures are like. I want to see them grow old together. I want to see this family that you brought together go on. But as a reader, I am happy with how it ended. So thank you.
