I m so sad to see this series ending These characters have faced so much tragedy and to come out on the other side able to love and trust again has brought me to tears EVERY single time Freya Barker has amazed and awed me with her written words I ve never been one to want to dive head first into a story that I know will make me ache in pain for the lives of fictional characters, but that is just what this author does to me Part of that reason is knowing she will provide them someone who will love them unconditionally and bring them into the fold of a family not born of blood but shared experiences and are as strong, if not stronger This series really is a must read ARC provided by NetGalley. I remember the first book of Freya Barker s that I read I went in to it wondering if I d like it, hoping that I would and worrying that, gods forbid I didn t, how could I tell her, someone that I knew and really liked, that I just couldn t take to it well, the worst never happened, the story was excellent and that concern turned out to be so far from an issue that I d actually completely forgotten my worry until I was recently looking over some of my reviews of Ms Barker s previous books Ok, I ll stop digressing and actually move on to what I want to say Still Air was an absobloodylutely fantastic read let s face it, that s pretty much a given when it comes to this series The one thing you can always be sure of with Freya s writing is that it will pull on ALL of your emotions it s expressive, meaningful, sarcastic, so very true to life, real, hard hitting and heartbreaking at times and, as is the case with this series especially, the story is at points raw, painful and occasionally fugly BUT is is also sweet, hopeful, uplifting, humorous and heart warming, her characters shows the true beauty and importance of friends and family of choice and not just of blood hell, at times often in spite of blood and that now and again we have to wade our way through the seemingly never ending crap continually thrown our way to get to the HEA that, in our darker moments, seems just that little bit or possibly too far out of reach I FLOVED Still Air just in case you didn t get that vibe already What a way to end the series We saw a very different side to Pam than we had previously where before she was the strong, resilient, confident woman this time, in her own story, we found that Pam had so many layers, had dealt and was still dealing with so much heartache and she suffered from as many, if not , feelings and insecurities than the people that she took care of and supported Afraid to open herself to anyone because she didn t feel deserving of love, care and a happy future, she kept everyone at arms length, especially Dino until things happen and she can no longer avoid him Throughout the other books in the series, Dino has been the voice of reason, the strong one who could see and read about people than they were comfortable with but lately he hasn t had the easiest of times himself, between his wife and all of her issues, his responsibilities to his kids and his feelings of having let his kids down and everything that happens in this book, it doesn t seem like he has time or should be looking for anything for himself until he gets close to Pam and they find out that they hit it off than either of them expected If you haven t checked out the Portland, ME series, or for that matter, any of Freya s other books you are sorely missing out I rate this fabulous read 5 but if I could, I d mark it way, way higher as five stars don t truly tell how good this book is This is the fourth and final book in the Portland ME series All books can be read as standalones but I have to ask WHY Why the hell would you not want to read them all Each book in the series is fairly heavy in storyline but each one has everything else you would expect from a Freya Barker book too If you ve yet to read any of her books then you have really been missing out Freya writes about real people, whether it be flaws, weakness or illness, just like the majority of us She adds a good healthy, panty melting dose of alpha in there too.Every book she has written so far has had the ability to grip me from the start Still Air was no different, infact it was an amazingly bloody brilliant way in which to finish the series Still Air is Pam and Dino s story Throughtout the previous Portland ME books they have both been secondary characters and I for one have been freaking well dying to read their stories.Pam is the owner of Florence House, a women s refuge She had dedicated her life to helping others Her dedication and protectiveness has been unwavering and inspiring, while underneath she has been hiding her own private hell, a past that is shatteringly sad She s always been the one to help others, keeping herself closed off but now life is finally becoming too much for her During Still Air she comes to realise that she doesn t have to face her demons by herself, that her group of friends have infact become her family and they want to be there for her like she has been for them over the years,.Dino, always having been a private person has been dealing with huge family problems but somehow, without noticing has become detached from his kids It isn t until his son, Jonas almost hits rock bottom that he realises that now is the time to seek help Pam and Dino have spoken but have maintained distance, just tolerating each other up until this point but Pam is the one who helps Jonas During this time they both gradually come to realise that maybe what seemed to be dislike was actaully masking something else I m not going to give any other hints or spoilers as it really deserves and needs to be read first hand I loved the fact that this didn t follow the normal storyline process, like the majority of books.There was plenty of agnst infact be sure you have a tissue supply at the ready , lots of heartwarming heartmelting moments and stomach dropping parts but there is also laughter, love and some pretty hot sex I read ALOT but there are very few authors that have the ability to be able to completely draw me in to every single one of their books The emotions being written about become part of you, you feel those emotions with each and every character That can only happen when the author is truly talented and can pour herself into each book.
