5 out of 5 stars

I can not think of a better early birthday gift than the release of the final book in the Beckoned series. I can not even begin to describe to you how invested I am in these books. I’ve read several books over the past two years and this series, Aviva Vaughn’s writing has stuck with me significantly. Beckoned: Adrift in New Zealand brings us to the end of Soren’s journey. When I began the Beckoned series from very beginning, Soren was not a character I was deeply invested in, I am so thankful that the series continued to show us his story and the character growth that he experiences throughout the pages. I’ve probably said it close to a million times but there is a quality in Aviva Vaughn’s writing that is almost poetic, it touches just about every emotion I have.
I truly look forward to reading more from this author. She’s crafted another five star read.

Beckoned: Adrift in New Zealand is part 6 of the series by Aviva Vaughn. Each book should be read in order.
Soren had no had the best of luck lately. Between his relationship with Angela and his family issues. He finds himself in Costa Rica where he ends up staying a lot longer then he planned to.

He takes up surfing and gets the perfect tan and surfer body! Elena is an ex pro surfer and she is the one who teaches him. Soren and Elena end up having a relationship that wasn’t planned but when her ex shows up, their relationship is tested.
During the book, Soren runs into 2 women he had been attached to in the past. What are the odds he will see both Elena and Lisbet will both come back into his life at the same time. Will Soren’s luck finally make a turn for the better?
This was a great ending to a wonderful series. The author did a great job keeping the reader interested throughout the series.

Beckoned: Adrift in New Zealand is part six and final chapter in the Beckoned series by Aviva Vaughn. I have to say, this is one of my favorite series this year. This series needs to be read in order and in it entirety to really understand this beautiful story. This is the end of Soren’s story, and I couldn’t put it down from the beginning to end. There were surprises I didn’t see coming and I loved the ending. I highly recommend this book, series and author.

5 Stars

BECKONED, Part 6: Adrift in New Zealand by Aviva Vaughn is the final installment of the Beckoned series. Soren is in Costa Rica still working the kinks in his relationship with Elena. Just when he thinks things are going well and he is in a happy place, his new business has him traveling to New Zealand. During his time in New Zealand, he comes into contact with two women from his past. Soren’s not so lucky journey for love may take a turn for the better or worst. You have to read this series and book to find out the outcome.

It is sad to see this series come to and end but also happy to see how Soren evolves in his relationships. Soren has been through a lot, including his family cutting him off monetarily, which has made him evolve into the man he has become and a great character to read about. Aviva doesn’t disappoint with her highly descriptive scenarios that make you feel that you are in all the countries that her stories take place in. I highly recommended this series, and should be read from the beginning, in order, to get the backstory on all the characters and great locations that are visited along the way

My Rating: 5 of 5 stars

BECKONED, Part 6: Adrift in New Zealand by Aviva Vaughn was an outstanding finish, and as sad as I am to see this series go, it was a near perfect conclusion to this wonderful series.

The last book, and as I said conclusion, we almost see like a full circle to Soren, it was something to read, and I had a very good time reading this book. Full of throwbacks, feels, and detailed smooth writing this book has it all, and frankly I feel very satisfied. I love the picturesque detail, that the author brings to this book, really makes you feel like your there watching the story on fold. Transitions were clean, the story had a nice pace, and you feel everything. Soren, what a character, I have so many feels for him, his growth, his personality, I’m sad to see him go, but I’m happy for this overall ending.

Overall this book, this series, is a must read and it gets my super high recommendation and my golden stamp of approval.

Happy Reading

Beckoned Adrift in New Zealand is the sixth part in the series by Aviva Vaughn. I recommend reading this series from the beginning because you will have more insight to the characters in the story. One thing I really liked about this author is that she made the characters into real people who you can see being friends. Her theme is second chances can happened but there is some learning from the past that needs to happen. There are journeys you will go on and some are wild roller coaster rides so keep your eyes open so that you can see what is going to happen next. This book is based in New Zealand where Soren meets up with two women from his past. What will Soren do when faced with these women? What will the women want from Soren? Will the past be duplicated or will everyone learn from the mistakes? Thank you Ms. Vaughn this is an awesome series.

I have been waiting for this book. I have a soft and squishy spot in the center of my heart for Soren and he really needed to have a store dedicated to him alone. Soren, bless his bleeding heart, has had it rough when it comes to love. He finds himself cut off from his family’s money and in New Zealand, his resort business has found him with some sort of peace…but only some.

Two women from his past show up, and start to reek havoc on his peace, but it may just be the sort of thing Soren needs to get out ot the rut the feels that his life has become. The only thing, he just wishes he could choose between what is right, and what is easy.

Ms. Vaughn is an amazing writer. She has built Soren up through five books so this one was like coming home to an old friend. The writing is both lyrical and poetic. The plot well thought out and does not feel rushed from one scene to another and the sentence structures are full and transition from one thought to another. Overall, this book is a fantastic addition to this series. 5 stars and highly recommended.

A wonderful way to end a great series. If you are looking to join in on the series now, I would definitely suggest you start from the beginning and invest your time to learn about Soren. There are reasons why Soren is at this place and time and has made the decisions he has made to be here. Quite frankly, I am so happy for him and his character living his life to the fullest and fulfilling his dreams. Once again, Soren is faced with tough decisions with his life concerning his business and his romantic life. In this book, his work takes him to New Zealand where he is confronted with women from his past and the current challenges he faces with Elena seeing as though she has decided to compete again. Going through the series you can’t help but fall in love with Soren and only hope the best for him. Not to mention Aviva’s gift for giving you the most gorgeous and vivid descriptions that transport you to where the characters are. I love this series and am very sad that it is all over. However, I cannot wait for another series to emerge from this author.

This story focuses on Soren Lund and Elena Sol. We have met Soren in the very first book. We have really seen this character evolve, and I was so excited to see how everything played out! I wasn’t disappointed! Aviva did a great job with Soren. He hasn’t had the best of luck with love! We did get to see some old characters, which was very nice. I really enjoyed this book.

I have been a fan of this series since the first book, but Adrift in New Zealand might just be the best book in the series. Aviva Vaughn has done such an amazing job with this series; I really don’t want to see it end.

We last left with Soren happy in Costa Rica with Elena and finally feeling like he found his purpose. But what happens when life takes a turn and things change again for Soren. I liked Elena but I didn’t see her as his HEA. Halfway through I got a little worried for Soren; I have been heartbroken for him so many times I almost gave up hope on him finding that one true love.

Aviva, you have made this fangirl very happy with how this series has turned out. This is something I have wanted to happen since part 4. I will admit that screamed when he smelled roses and someone from the past showed up (HAPPY DANCE).

I recommended this series to everyone not only looking for romance – which is wonderful but for an adventure as well.
