Title: Dair
Series: The Wild Side, #3
Author: R.K. Lilley


 I’d started writing everything about her down. I didn’t want to forget. The color of her hair. The depth of her eyes. The stubborn shape of her jaw. The way her lips shaped words with such expression. The way her voice made my chest ache. The way she gave advice beyond her years. The way she listened like she cared about every word. The way she made me feel—Alive. Every curve and hollow of her body was recorded, in my mind, and now my hard drive. There was a bit of truth in every lie, and even if it had only been fed to me in the smallest increments, I wanted, needed to remember the real Iris. Because in the end, there was one irrefutable thing that I couldn’t deny. Hostage or hustler, sinner or saint, whatever she was or wasn’t, whether she lied to my face or taunted me with hints of the truth, all of this seemed always to defer to the more pertinent fact at hand. 
She was mine.

 After yet another shocking discovery, followed by a disturbing letter, Dair is almost certain Iris has left his life for good. He tries his best to move on. Easier said than done, and when an unexpected and dangerous opportunity arises for him to find out what happened to her, he doesn’t hesitate to take it. As usual, with Iris, the answer leaves him more lost than the question. Every revelation is shrouded in mystery, and every disclosure leaves Dair more in the dark than ever. And when finally, the messy truth is revealed in its entirety, will he be ready for it?

 This is the final installment in Iris and Dair’s story 
This book is intended for readers 18 and up.

Dair begins with Dair still wondering where Iris is, and if she is even still alive. It's been months since he last saw her, and he's completely obsessed, and worried. But then one fateful day he gets a chance to see her again, but between the lies, and the secrets things aren't going so well.. But Dair is determined to get the truth about Iris once and for all. The only thing is once he has it, he may not actually want to know anymore. 

 That's all I can really say with out giving to much away in this one. I really did like the book, but I was a little frustrated with a few things. I felt like the book was missing a lot of what made the first book so great. I'm not really sure how to explain that, but it lacked a whole lot of Iris and Dair time it seemed like. This one was a lot more Dair. Not that that is exactly a bad thing, just sort of frustrating. Then there was one instance that really bothered me, it was a major repeat of what has already happened in previous books, and I was just angry that it happened again. 

But I loved the ending of the book. It was amazing. I also couldn't believe everything that was revealed, that was just insane! I wasn't sure exactly how to feel about it. Eventually I just went with it. Dair and Iris truly loved each other, and you could really feel the love, so that was all that mattered to me.

 I'm sad to see this serial series end. But I'm so glad I got to go along through this awesome journey of Dair and Iris!
