Final Offer By Lauren Asher Book Review – After devouring the first two books in the series and waiting almost a year for the next book, I had pretty high expectations for Callahan and Alana. Cal and Lana along with cami have reached those expectations. Final Offer is the third book in the Dreamland Billionaire series by Lauren Asher. The Series follows the lives of three Kane brothers who strive to fulfil their late grandfather’s will in order to receive their share of inheritance.
Final Offer By Lauren Asher Summary
Cal and Alana are childhood friends and lovers who break up after a relationship of one summer and Cal promises never to return to the Lake house. He kept his promise for six years. As a part of the will, Cal returns to sell the lake house before his grandfather’s second death anniversary to receive his twenty-five billion dollars. He returns to Lake Wysteria and learns that Alana is a co-owner of the lake house.

Cal and Lana’s story is a second chance, small town romance. Our man Callahan Kane is a charmer. He can sweet talk you into doing anything for him. The Kane brothers go above and beyond for the ones they love and Callahan Kane is no exception. Alana Castillo is a single mother in a small town trying her hardest to provide the best life for her daughter. The 5 year-old Cami Castillo is a sweetheart. She has a big heart and is full of love and warmth. She makes a get well soon card for Cal when he wakes up with a hangover.
The book also beautifully portrays life in a small town and the care and concern the residents have for one another. The bond between cami and cal was a treat to read. From being terrified of the possibility of a child to giving cami the best birthday by taking her to Dreamland they have come a long way.
The interactions between the Kane brothers and between Iris and Cal were too good. There are a number of cute and toe-curling moments in the book. “He makes me want to have fun, enjoy life, and dream in a way I have long since forgotten over the years. Even with the odds stacked against us, he makes me want to believe we can work out.” Although, both of them have never stopped loving each other, they each have issues to deal with. Lana has a tough time trusting Cal the second time around, afraid he is going to break Cami’s heart along with her own. “Not trusting him and his addiction isn’t a sign of immaturity, but experience”.
The book talks about addiction. Cal is always running away from problems and trying to numb his pain using alcohol. The kind of effect addiction have on people’s lives and relationships. “Getting sober isn’t a goal, it’s a journey. YOUR journey. And as much as I wanted you to get healthy, I went about it all the wrong way. There isn’t a day that goes by when I don’t wonder what might have happened if I supported you rather than turned my back on you.”
Dreamland Billionaires series has three strong women of color who know their worth and not let anyone tell them otherwise. Zahra, Iris and Alana are extremely talented in their respective fields and have certain dreams and aspirations. Personally, I think although Dreamland Billionaires is a story of three brothers the fmc’s take away the attention in each book.
