My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Beckoned, Part 6: Adrift in New Zealand by Aviva Vaughn is the sixth book in this brilliant series. I would highly recommend reading this series in order.
I cannot believe that this book is it. The conclusion. Although I was looking forward to seeing how it all ended I am also sad to know this is the last time I will read about the characters – until the re-reads anyway. It really feels like we have been on with a journey with them all. From page one book one to the final page in book six ton truly become invested in these characters.
This author has done a wonderful job at creating a lasting series and I cannot recommend more that you give them a go.

5-stars

It’s hard to put into words how I feel right now, I have been waiting for this book and this ending for what feels like years! I have felt so invested in these characters since I started this series and I’ve loved every second of reading their story unfold. I would strongly suggest reading this series in order as each book follows the last with the same characters and storyline.

Aviva has created such an incredible series with so much detail that it easily felt as if I was right there with these characters immersed in their emotional lives. Their story had me feeling all sorts of emotions, from happiness, confusion, hurt, empathy, sadness and finally joy, so much joy!
I would absolutely recommend this series to anyone looking for their next romance read, this is a series you won’t want to miss!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’m a little saddened for this to be the conclusion but can’t wait to see what is next for this author. I highly recommend reading this series from the beginning in order to help understand the characters better. I loved the characters as they bring the story to life for me as well as took me on some twists and turns that I didn’t see coming. What will happen to Soren as he meets up with two women from his past? Will he question everything that he has come to be? This is a must read!

Beckoned, Part 5: Adrift In Costa Rica
By Aviva Vaughn
5/5 Stars

I can’t even begin to tell you how much I LOVED the Beckoned series ! I enjoyed Angela and Soren’s love story from start to finish!! But I must admit something… I wasn’t too keen on Soren. I found him selfish and incredibly needy. But after reading this book, I saw him in a whole new light!
Realizing you aren’t the person you want to be is a huge eye opener…Picking up and starting over is so scary, but yet so brave!! Soren , discovers himself in the proces… now that is growth!
My favorite quote from the series so far is, “ The regret of missed opportunity .” It means a great deal to me. But I’m sure it means something different to everyone. I’m going to remember this quote for a long time!! Especially when I second guess a great opportunity!!
Aviva has a way of writing , which will suck you in immediately! Her attention to details is phenomenal! And her characters … wow, so relatable and honest!! I highly recommended this entire series! Take the time to read it in proper order, you will not regret it!! I can’t wait to see where book six takes us!! I’m looking forward to seeing where Soren and Elena’s journey takes us this time!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Part 5 of Soren’s journey. It’s my first book though and somehow I am happy that I didn’t read the others because I liked Soren right from the beginning and if Angela was right for him in my eyes I would have had a hard time to warm up to Elena. But that is just a subjective opinion. I don’t take easily to trading main characters and from my understanding Angela is part of Soren’s life for at least 3 of the other parts.

That being said, if this is your first book from the series, don’t worry of not understanding or missing important bits. We still get an inside about Soren’s life before Costa Rica. And frankly, Soren grows and develops so much in this book, it’s a beautiful process to watch. And Elena, I just like her. And not because we have the same name and speak the same language:)) she is strong, talented and so down to earth, keeping those walls around her tall but I completely understand it and good for her that she does. Although Soren on paper is quite the catch and many would throw themselves at him I like that he wonders why Elena chose him. That woman is keeping him on his toes!! Curious to see what part 6 will bring but I really hope he learned from his mistakes and he will make the right choice.

Beckoned, Part 5: Adrift in Costa Rica (Beckoned Series book 5) by Aviva Vaughn – Review by Ashleigh Harrington

BECKONED, Part 5: Adrift in Costa RicaBECKONED, Part 5: Adrift in Costa Rica by Aviva Vaughn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Beckoned by Aviva Vaughn is the fifth part in her new serial that I just can’t get enough of. Throughout the series, I became hooked and made it so hard to put down until the very end. Beckoned is all about finding yourself and finding someone who understands and embraces the journey that you are on. Following the stories of Soren Lund and Elena Sol, you get a front row seat to a passion that can’t be tamed no matter the miles that separate these two. Soren is a man that who is trying to find his way in the world, and trying to right his world that was tilted on its axis from a heartbreak. In his journey he finds himself in a village in Costa Rica, where he meets Elena. Elena is so full of life, living on the edge as a professional surfer. While Costa Rica has always been her home she has always been a woman willing to do and go wherever to make her dreams a reality. Elena is a strong, beautiful woman, who has been hurt in the past and guards her heart against further pain. There is something about Soren that draws Elena in, but she is worried that he will attempt to change her or hurt her. Soren finds that he can’t get Elena out of his head, and is willing to take a leap of faith letting her in. The more that these two get to know each other the more that parting seems to be the worst thing. The sparks that fly between these two will leave you on the edge of your seat and attempting to catch your breath. Vaughn is a newer to me author but I am so happy that I picked this series up. I have loved every book so far and can’t wait to see how it will continue. While each of these books could be read as a single quickie read, I recommend reading them all in order as the characters will overlap and interact throughout each book. If you are looking for a great read, from a superb author, than this is one that you need to pick up today!

Beckoned Part 5: Adrift in Costa Rica By Aviva Vaughn – Review By Melissa Agena

BECKONED, Part 5: Adrift in Costa RicaBECKONED, Part 5: Adrift in Costa Rica by Aviva Vaughn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What a great way to wrap up a series! Beckoned – Adrift in Costa Rica is book 5 in the series which is written by Aviva Vaughn. Although this book can be read as a standalone I would highly suggest you read the other 4 books because then you can fully understand Soren’s character. Soren was a main love interest in the other books and when it came down to it, Soren was a lone man. His character was full of regimen and planning. He was born as the heir to the family financial business. However, it becomes quite obvious that this life that was meticulously planned out for him is exactly what he was looking for. So what does anyone that needs a break to find out who they really are do? They go to Costa Rica to find themselves! There Soren encounters new people and a new culture. What he doesn’t expect is Elena and everything else that he thought was him, wasn’t. It’s hard enough trying to find yourself but when you add the unexpected everything finds a way to become part of the new you. Ms. Vaughn has done a great job with telling Soren’s story and closing a chapter, so to speak, with the series. This character was one of those that you would always say, “what happened to him?” I’m glad this book came out to answer my questions about the character and how his story ended. I loved the author’s writing style and can’t wait to read more from her!
