The Donor (Part 3) - Nikki Rae - Blog Tour!


Casey may have not known what was in store for her when she met Jonah Black on, but now that she’s with him, life has become even more unexpected. She's discovered someone else in the picture and now she cannot figure out how she fits into the puzzle.
Convinced that he doesn’t need her, Casey is torn between giving up and doing whatever it takes to help her family. But Jonah, it turns out, needs her more than she knows.
Time is something neither of them have.
Can they hold each other together as the clock runs out?


Synopses for the other parts:

The Donor (Part One)

Casey Williams and her family are poor. Her parents work non-stop and so does she, just so they can keep the trailer roof from leaking.
They’re getting by fine enough when the headaches start. Then there’s the nosebleeds. And the inevitable doctor’s bills.
Fortunately for Casey, there’s an exclusive, quick, and almost easy way to pay it all back before her parents even have to know.
All she has to do is give a man she’s never met whatever he wants from her body.
Inside or out.

The Donor (Part Two)

When Casey joined, she never imagined she would meet a man who not only helps her pay the bills, but has been nothing but a gentleman.
As the nose bleeds make way for worse symptoms, Casey can’t help the feelings she has for Jonah, despite how he may never return them. And he’s been keeping things from her. Big things. How does he make his money, and who is that girl in the picture?
With the clock ticking, can she find the answers she’s looking for?


The Donor Part 3, the conclusion to this unique and intriguing story.
So I had read parts 1 and 2 and was totally captivated. I loved the concept of this story and Jonah and Casey were addictive characters to follow. I did feel like I wanted to cry 99% of the way through. 
I did read this as soon as I received it, but Ive had to spend a day trying to decide what my final thoughts were. I was a little torn. 

The story is told in little time jumps. Which once you got the grips of the pattern, it was easy enough to follow. That was the same for this final part, and I think the way in which the story is told, is what made it so emotional for me. It's like there is 2 story paths running, alternating in sections. So you would read part from the present, then flip to an event that happened before, then back. It helped to draw out the final moments of this book. Just when it got to the part where everyones fate was decided, it would flip back in time. I was practically biting my nails off wondering what was happening. 

The same tender and sweet friendship between Casey and Jonah is ever present towards the end. The daft and sentimental side of me knew what I wanted to happen right from the start, and I must admit I thought I knew how it would end up being played out. The connection they have seems to become more important, when Jonah takes Casey to his lab, in his cabin. There Casey learns more about his work and also why exactly she ended up staying with Jonah, while he took care of her. Something that seemed quite selfless and sweet, actually turned out to be an ulterior motive. Making me feel even more sorry for Casey. She didn't seem to get any breaks, and deserved something good. Of course Jonah wasn't being totally selfish, and yes he is justified in what he wanted Casey around for. But, it still didn't make me feel too good about the conclusion.

The ending is what left me struggling for ages. I wasn't sure what I felt. I wanted to think it was the best way for it to end. But, i'm still a little torn. I guess I shouldn't of assumed I knew how it was going to play out. It was definitely a shocker for me, but I feel a little sad still. I won't say anymore, as I don't want to spoil this for anyone yet to see, how this amazing novella series finishes. This book is awesome and definitely something completely unique and different. I'm so glad I got to read this!
