Renaissance Man (Blaze of Glory #3) by M. Garzon

The third book in the popular series - soon to be a major new television series!

"And they lived happily ever after."
In fairy tales, that’s always how things end. The prince and princess ride away on his white horse and from then on all’s right with the world. But what if it wasn’t? What if the prince’s life didn’t suit the princess? What if she felt stifled by life inside the castle walls? Could she tell him? And if she loved him—really loved him—how could she ask him to give up his kingdom?

I've had the pleasure of reading and reviewing the first two books in this series, Blaze of Glory and Look Twice.  So, I was excited to read Renaissance Man - revisit some memorable characters and see how life was going for them.  If you haven't read the first two books, I'd urge you to read them before you read Renaissance Man.  It's not that Renaissance Man  cannot be read as a standalone, it can.  But it's better to read the first two and get the whole experience and learn how the characters have developed.

In this installment, Tea and Jaden are still together, but they are trying to find a balance with their relationship and their work.  It's something most adults have to deal with, and it's even harder when their are children involved. They both mature quickly and have to make some adult decisions to find that balance and if they both want the same thing.  When/If you don't, it's hard to deal with that and can mar a relationship.  

I won't ruin the book for you but I will say that I'm happy it ended as it did.  I'm going to miss this series, but I loved all of the scenes with the horses.  Jaden with his polo playing and Tea with her show jumping.  Those moments almost stole the show for me, but the deepening love between Tea and Jaden, along side the family and how they dealt with certain issues was emotional as well as celebratory.

Definitely a series that I'd wholly recommend to anyone.  I love it when you can really see how the characters have grown over a series by the actions and decisions they make.  I'll be one of the first in line to see how it all plays out when it's on TV.  Love it!

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.
