(view spoiler)[ Cassidy and Shaw have the marriage and the baby but there's a distance that needs to be breached if they are to stay together. (hide spoiler)] A lot of feelings come out in this tale and not all of it is wrapped in a pretty package. The plot was interesting and real. The characters are flawed but relatable. They have depth and even after two additional books and several years together they still have growth and lessons to learn. The message I got from this is that no matter how much time passes, you can't take your partner for granted and you have to continue to work towards maintaining your relationship. It's easy to get comfortable and lose sight of that. I will admit to being pretty pissed at Shaw a few times in the beginning and a little surprised by Cassidy's actions in the end but I enjoyed this ride because the author stayed true to who they are as individuals. These two have such great chemistry and trust me: that is not lost in this book (well... once they work through their initial problems lol). All in all an excellent series from beginning to end and it's bittersweet to see it come to a close. Safety: No OW/OM/Sharing, though there is a bit of voyeurism in this one. No rape/abuse. ARC received in exchange for an honest review.

    ARC received for review 4.5 stars Great ending to the series. We open 7 months after the end of book 2, and little bundle of joy being born. Then three years later where has all the passion gone...just like normal life they have to fight to get back to where they first fall in love. They do it with the help of amazing friends (who have all hooked up with each other between the books, and we don't get to see the HEAs happen) and two professionals (one is hilarious and the other is a like a domme).

    I remember Cassidy and Shaw fondly from the first installment of their story. Sadly I missed the second but when I saw the conclusion was being published, I had to review it. I have to say, I did not enjoy the beginning of this book. I hate reading about discord and unhappiness and I was seriously considering stopping. However, I figured that the author had to have something good up her sleeve and I was not wrong. This book started getting good about mid way through and by around the 3/4 mark, it I remember Cassidy and Shaw fondly from the first installment of their story.

Overall an engrossing, steamy read with the type of closure in a series that is so worth the wait.

    "Yield and wield." The Monkey Business Trio refers to a bar named Monkey Business where the characters hang out with their friends, and I'm guessing the 'trio' is because there are three books in the series. That was kinda confusing to me, so I thought I'd clear that up for y'all. While there are some colorful support characters, Shaw and Cassidy are the focus in all three books. At the end of the last book we discover that there's another version of 'three' in this series when Shaw learns he' "Yield and wield." The Monkey Business Trio refers to a bar named Monkey Business where the characters hang out with their friends, and I'm guessing the 'trio' is because there are three books in the series. That was kinda confusing to me, so I thought I'd clear that up for y'all. While there are some colorful support characters, Shaw and Cassidy are the focus in all three books. At the end of the last book we discover that there's another version of 'three' in this series when Shaw learns he's gonna be a father. Having no 'good example' in his own life, he's determined to do a better job than his own parents. Unfortunately, it's harder than he thought when life gets busy and he has so many obligations pulling for his attention. While Cassidy is willing to give up her career to take care of their baby, he's still working hard to prove that he deserves the partnership that he won by default. As he spends more and more time at work, they drift further and further away from that passion that brought them together. Cassidy is happy to stay home with their baby, she wants to make sure she's there for all the firsts. She misses the corporate world, but plans to return later when their child is older. While motherhood is very fulfilling, she feels like the rest of her life is lacking. She's starting to feel a little insecure about her body after childbirth. Things aren't quite as tight and perky as they used to be. With Shaw spending so much time at work, she's left alone much of the time to wonder if he still feels the same about this version of her. With these doubts and insecurities plaguing her, she makes plans to do something about it. Now, the only problem is convincing Shaw to participate. Shaw has no idea what Cassidy's problem is. Can't she understand that he's working so hard for her and their child. It's not that he doesn't want to spend more time with them. He thinks she's even more beautiful as a mother. Too bad he doesn't tell her that, huh? How is he gonna find time to do as she asks when he's already struggling with too many demands? There's just not enough of him to go around. He'll make it up to them later. He promises... again. When their relationship hits the brick wall, something has to change. Will it be her? Will it be him? Will they be willing to do whatever is needed to make it work? And let me tell you, what's needed is a page turner. Secrets and fantasies will be revealed. Hopes and fears will be exposed. Pain and promises will be uncovered until there's nothing left to hide from themselves or each other. Will there be anything left at the end? Will their love and passion survive the process of coming clean?

Parker's brilliant Monkey Business trilogy. If you haven't read book 1 or 2 yet and plan to do so in the future, you may want to stop reading now. This one is the story after the happy end. Continuing seven months after the end of Getting Rough and then jumping ahead three years, we catch up with Shaw and Cassidy as they go through the motions of a relationship that has lost its passion and has instead become firmly focused on being doting parents and busy providers of financial security. Everyday life has taken its toll. While more serious in nature than the first two books, there was still plenty of humor and steamy sex in this installment. C.L. Parker skillfully combined reality many readers will be able to identify with, with some rather unorthodox and fun therapy sessions resulting in a very entertaining and suitable conclusion to this series. I've become quite fond of Cassidy and Shaw, their family and circle of friends. The characters were well-drawn, relatable, and likable. While this one wasn't my favorite book out of the three, I have thoroughly enjoyed the entire series and look forward to reading more by Ms. Parker in the future. I received an ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

From the first moment I got on with it, I instantly understood CL’s claims of this book being a more “real” one. She was all I’d ever want. Coming Clean is the third and last installment in Monkey Business Trio series and the finale in Cassidy Whalen and Shaw Matthews story. And what a story was it! In Playing Dirty, we were introduced to these super-duber passionate characters and saw first hand their throat-to-throat war over the partnership they both desired like mad. After, in Getting Rough, we saw Shaw follow Cass at her hometown intending to ask explanations of what she did, but he ended up find his light again and find his soulmate in her. And now, in Coming Clean, we get to see how going through the motions of the every day life, the routine and parenthood have made them lose sight of their love’s first foundations. Chapter by chapter, CL took me into a very special journey allowing me to witness what made Cass and Shaw tick as a couple. And more accurately, a 21st century every day couple. As every relationship in the real world, so this one has to face problems such as the crazy ours of work, the exhaustion, the loss of the initial passion, the routine plus the baggage each fictional character has to have and the care of a kid. But what made this book even more unique and unacceptable to miss is the fact that everything lies with how they choose to deal with their problems and how hard are they willing to fight so to not lose the things that matter more to them; their family. Although, “give up” is an action unknown to them and the only thing neither of them can do so they get into the relationship-coach road. And THAT’S where a mix of emotions and faces made me undone. Failure had never been an option for me, and it sure as shit wouldn’t be now. For those who know what I’m talking about, I have to say 1 name; Dr. Katya. For those who don’t, this is the final push to start reading the book/series. So, back to Katya! I know I can’t say a lot from not wanting to spoil such an outstanding character, but DAMN. THAT. WOMAN!!! It was like she burn my mind and my being to the ground and rebuilt it with her own foundations, making me a whole new person and rethinking some things. As for her assignments? I guess I will follow her “suggestions” into the real life concerning any problems in my relationships. Because, once you read them, you can’t walk away and leave them inside this book’s pages. “I’d had no idea forbidden was a scent, but she was wearing it as it were a designer fragrance of her own making.” -Cassidy This was one of the few times, if not the first, I actually cried while reading a couple’s fight. It just had that “something” and a certain desperation that pierced my heart and affected me deeply. It was just so real and devastating to see these lovers going through that that the tears couldn’t be hold back. And that happened every time I stumbled on a difficult moment for their relationship. Knowing them for two books in a row for their seizing passion, their inner strength and fight and now watching all these bad feelings life threw on them was a bit hard for me. But, if I sit and see it from every angle, maybe what happens in the third book was the key and the push they needed to overcome and deal with their issues both individually and together so they can have their very HEA in the end which they more than deserved. My gaze never left hers and a single thought ran through my mind with utter clarity. This is where I belong. My dearest CL Parker did once again magic, creating the finale every couple, fictional or not, want. She not only got to transport her heroes from the pages of a book into real life, but also added elements that characterize a today’s couples. Also, I got the feeling, especially in the end, that she was adding a part of her own life; but it may be my idea. Who knows? Although, no one can denies her talent on sucking you deep with her amazing stories. And I only wish her the best and to surprise us at some point with a story that will not only blown my mind off but also everything about and on me (you know what I’m talking about, my dear CL ;) )

    I'll admit I really struggled with this one; while I loved the first two books in the series I felt as if this final installment destroyed the happily ever after we were left with in Getting Rough. Yes, I am aware that real life relationships require work BUT I want the warm and fuzzies in my fiction not to be slapped in the face with reality :P I hate it when authors mess with the happily ever afters of my favourite couples :( Shaw and Cassidy have lost themselves along the path of parenthood an I'll admit I really struggled with this one; while I loved the first two books in the series I felt as if this final installment destroyed the happily ever after we were left with in Getting Rough. Yes, I am aware that real life relationships require work BUT I want the warm and fuzzies in my fiction not to be slapped in the face with reality :P I hate it when authors mess with the happily ever afters of my favourite couples :( Shaw and Cassidy have lost themselves along the path of parenthood and in doing so have lost the passion within their relationship. I detested the references to their relationship being solely based on the physical. Don't get me wrong it is an important part of a relationship BUT in this instance it seemed as if it was the foundation rather than an extension of their feelings for each other. Cassidy was uncomfortable relatable to any mother, the feeling that you take a back seat in your own life, although necessary it is jarring to be aware that your own needs are not as important as the little person you created. Especially so when you have a partner that remains in the same route as they did before becoming a parent. To be honest I resented the hell out of Shaw in this story, I felt as if he had regressed significantly to the man we left at the end of Getting Rough. While he is now in touch with his feelings and open about his love for Cassidy, his actions do not back up his sentiments. Although his drive to provide for his family is understandable considering his upbringing it did little to alleviate the negativity I felt towards him breaking his promise of spending time with his family and putting them first. It was difficult for me to separate my own experiences with my ex-husband and his terrible parenting skills, so I will admit I may be a little more prejudice where Shaw is concerned than the average reader. While I liked the idea of relationship counselling to help steer Cassidy and Shaw back onto the right track, the sex therapy felt skeevy. It was at this point I started skimming trying to re-establish my connections to the characters as it became increasingly obvious my previous connection has been obliterated. Coming Clean is painfully realistic in the way it shows how life can alter your identity and your relationships. Real life relationships require work and effort on both sides in order to succeed, being true to yourself and not settling for anything less than you deserve is the foundation of this finale.

    Huge disappointment. The whole sex therapy thing was over the top and ridiculous and felt just plain sleazy and stupid. I absolutely hated their 'therapist', her meddling and the way Shaw and especially Cassidy practically fell over each other trying to please her. There was also not much of a story beside the sex - and that bit of story that did exist was completely predictable. So like I said, huge disappointment and absolutely not what I wanted from this final installment. Huge disappointment.

    I have Loved, Loved, Loved this trilogy! Not one book was a disappointment at all, and this one was even better then the other two...if that is even possible. We pick up roughly seven months after Getting Rough ended with the birth of Shaw and Cassidy's son Abe. It was definitely fun to see Shaw freak out while Cass was in labor.

Shaw and Cassidy love each other there's no question about that but it seems like their life has done a complete 180 since they had their son three years earlier its sad to say but the passion is no longer there. Rather than let their love for one another fizzle away Cassidy insists they see a relationship coach. A therapist that isn't a therapist, a relationship coach, and the love and support of their friends will help them through this difficult patch they are having. There is also something big going down at Striker Sports Entertainment, we know that in the first book Playing Dirty Monty was retiring and that is when Cassidy and Shaw were in competition to make partnership at SSE, now it seems that Wade is ready to retire and that leaves a HUGE unknown to Shaw...will he be out of a job with SSE closing?....will someone be named partner?...will he have any say over who it is?...yep tons of questions and only one way to find out the answers to them, yep you got it - you need to read this book!!! Although we don't get to see each of the friends pairing up in their own books we do get a HEA or HFN for each of them, Denver & Quinn, Landon & Sasha, Chaz & Demi, as well as Casey & Mia. This has been a great trio of books but remember they MUST be read in order, they are not to meant to be read any other way. Happy Reading! Such a great quote by C.L. Parker.

Cassidy is not happy in the relationship. Shaw is way too busy with work to enjoy his family. But once the therapists start suggesting things, especially sexy things. The fun starts again. ☺ This third book was really verrrry sexy! It was fun to watch Shaw & Cass find their way back to what they once had. I loved the way Shaw was with his son, only we didn't get to see enough of it, because he was constantly working :/ And then they had to send the baby to live with the grandparents for a while.

And I especially loved how it all turned out for them in the end. ☺☺☺ Great last book in the series! COMING CLEAN was the perfect final book in this series! Very sexy & adorable & moving!! Go and get yourself a final dose of Shaw & Cassidy! ♥

Cassidy is They have been rivals who fought until the bitter end and lovers who know every sensual inch of each other’s bodies. Now sports agents Cassidy Whalen and Shaw Matthews are about to become the one thing they never expected to be: parents. But this new dynamic to their relationship threatens to fizzle the sizzling desire that once held them in thrall to each other. If salvation is only a forbidden fantasy away, then Shaw and the woman he loves must embark on the adventure of their lives. Cassidy is aching to reignite their connection. In steamy assignations in strange places, she and Shaw live out their most intimate desires—and reveal their deepest secrets. But as Shaw works overtime to sign a superstar athlete, a corporate reshuffling could be a game-changer. Can Cassidy and Shaw save their relationship and have it all—a career, family, and passion that never quits? First off the three star rating is mostly my fault its a four star read but I've missed out on the previous books so there's some history here that I've missed out on because this book seems to pick off where the last one left off. This left me feeling as if I was missing some vital bits and pieces that sort of fit into the story and characters and where they are in this installment. Since I lean so heavily on characters carrying the story I appreciated that despite the conflicts our h/h are facing they don't just throw their hands up and call it quits. This allowed me to invest in the characters Cassidy and Shaw more. I appreciated that Parker understood and included some reality in this installment and it was interesting to see how they work through their issues together. Not everything is always perfect and movie film romantic at all times for the rest of their lives. There are struggles and pains to deal with both separately and together as individuals and spouses and parents. Its a rather good read I just need to pick up the previous books so that I can get a fuller more complete understanding of this series.

Maybe because the message in this book resonates with me. It's not smooth or lighthearted, but is sometimes entertaining and laugh out loud funny and sometimes makes you think. It's like a handy guide on how to make your relationship work, if a handy guide came in over 200 pages. Riding off into the sunset with your Prince Charming is not the end, like the movies would have you believe. If anything, it's actually the beginning. And for woman like Cassidy who fought for her success in a male-dominated field, being relegated to being a mom without Shaw's support is hard but she loves him and she's smart enough to know that they need the help of a professional to find their way back to each other. For Shaw, not so much. He's got the woman and the kid, now he has to work to provide for them, something his deadbeat parents never did for him. In the process though, he's neglected the ones he's working so hard for and just like a typical male, does not think he needs any help. But he's willing to play along, especially when some of their assignments are of the sexual variety. This is romance but it's also real life and any couple who wants to have it all and has struggled to balance work, family and a relationship has walked this path at some point in their life together. Shaw dealing with his past and getting rid of baggage that weighed down their relationship, both of them remaining open to each other and Cassidy reconnecting with herself and what made her tick were some of the things they needed to do, to re-ignite the spark between them and keep the magic between them alive. I never, ever recommend reading a series from the end but with this series, I did just that and it made me see Cassidy and Shaw in a new light. I enjoyed them so much, their determination to make their relationship work and how far they were willing to go that now I'm ready to try the previous two books again.

    Coming is a steamy and heartwarming conclusion to the Monkey Business Trio. What a conclusion indeed. I did not expect the book to be so emotional and raw but a also show different dynamic and build in the story. I have been a massive fan of this series when I started reading the first book last year and I am so happy with the way it ended. It was perfect ending to series that had my heart pumping and my eyes glued to it.

C.L. Parker really did a tremendous job in giving me series I just could not help falling love with. Coming Clean continues with the story of Cassidy and Shaw. At first, I had thought that the story had ended in book 2 but I was mistaken because in Coming Clean, there was a clear story of what happens to a couple as they navigate through their lives together. It was definitely purely depicted. I loved that this book showed that couples do have problems even after they get their happily ever after. What the author was able to catch on was purely genius. Coming Clean had so much emotion pouring out. It was even better than book 1 and book 2 in terms of emotion because I was able to really moved by the story. That is the beauty of it that a story is able to move me like no other. It truly brought out the feels that I was actually shocked by it. Not only was it emotional but there were so many hot scenes that made my ovaries explode. Yep, they wanted to combust. LOL. I mean HOLY SMOKES, the sex scenes were hot. So hot that I had that there were EPIC LOL. Yes. Coming Clean was truly different and I loved it. It brought the swoon, the sexiness, the laughter, the emotion and also about surviving as a couple. IT WAS TRULY BEAUTIFUL. I loved Cassidy and Shaw. Never have I ever had a couple I was cheering on more. There had so much chemistry that made Coming Clean very enjoyable. Both of them were dynamic characters that brought the story to live and I was so happy that I was able to follow their story from book 1 and see their happily ever after. It makes you feel so warm and fuzzy inside. All couples have challenges but I loved the strength that Cassidy and Shaw had through out their challenges. Coming Clean was truly an amazing conclusion to the Monkey Business Trilogy and I am clearly going to miss it. It has become one of my favourite series.

    Coming Clean is the third and final book in C.L. Parker's Monkey Business trilogy and, wow, this one was much darker than Books 1 and 2. It definitely took me by surprise since the first two books were filled with humor and light-hearted situations. This book tackled difficult life problems and set a different tone for the series. Although I would have liked the previous tone to have continued, I did appreciate the way the author was able to switch so effortlessly.

The characters were very well developed, the writing was impeccable, and the storyline was unique and intriguing. I'm absolutely looking forward to reading what Ms. Parker surprises us with next! *I received an ARC from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    Received from NetGalley for a honest review. After the first book cliffhanger and the chase in the second book, I wasn't sure what to expect from Cassidy's & Shaw's story. What was left? The answer a lot! You know how we read romance books and the lead characters go back and forth fighting and running away from each other. Well, this is what happens after the HEA. Shaw has everything he thought he wouldn't have and is doing everything he thinks he should be doing to keep his family happy. Cassid Received from NetGalley for a honest review.

Cassidy is doing what she felt was right for her love ones but forgot about what she needed to be happy. She knows things need to change for everything to work out. For Cassidy & Shaw that means tackling all those problems, arguments and unsolved issues that they had in the first two books. (This includes some interesting therapy.) Great conclusion!

Isn't the point of romance to fall in love with hero as the heroine does?

Parker Publisher/Year: Random House 9/20/16 Length: 336 Pages Series: Monkey Business Trio #3 Overview They have been rivals who fought until the bitter end and lovers who know every sensual inch of each other’s bodies. Now sports agents Cassidy Whalen and Shaw Matthews are about to become the one thing they never expected to be: parents. But this new dynamic to their relationship threatens to fizzle the sizzling desire that once held them in thrall to each other. If salvation is only a forbidden fantasy away, then Shaw and the woman he loves must embark on the adventure of their lives. Cassidy is aching to reignite their connection. In steamy assignations in strange places, she and Shaw live out their most intimate desires—and reveal their deepest secrets. But as Shaw works overtime to sign a superstar athlete, a corporate reshuffling could be a game-changer. Can Cassidy and Shaw save their relationship and have it all—a career, family, and passion that never quits? My Thoughts we find ourselves in a completely different time and place in the lives of Shaw and Cassidy and it's a bit surprising to see the leap that our author has taken here. Where things were finally beginning to settle, along with the nice surprise of a pregnancy, you'd think that we'd just jump right into the happy couple with their new baby and their amazing agent careers. Well, that's not what we get. I think that we've now fast forwarded 3-4 years into the future and the life that they were living is so so different than the life that they have now. Cassidy has become a stay at home mom since she knew that being an agent would take her away from her baby too much and she wasn't happy about that. Then there's Shaw who's been made partner, and well life has gotten to be even more hectic. With all that, you know that there's going to be a lot of struggle, and that's exactly where we are. They are so far on the outs, that i don't know that it's even possible for them to get back to a happy place. Shaw works so much that Cassidy feels neglected and has even packed her bags to go back to Stonington since there's no reason for her to stay in San Diego with him. That prompts the biggest hail marry ever and we end up seeing their fight throughout couples therapy. We can all imagine that it's going to be a mess since Shaw is so self assured that he's not going to welcome it, and he doesn't. Every step forward they take, they take 2 steps back and it's an uphill battle that really doesn't seem likely to get better. They are even sent to an unorthodox therapist to work on their relationship and it's there that they finally begin to make headway, but to be honest, it's too little too late. That's the story that we have here - one that shows how there was nothing solid for their relationship to be built on and that's what causes it to fail. I have to say that i'm kind of baffled where this story took us. We only have glimpses of some of the characters and plot lines that made the other 2 installments good - but it was almost as like this was written in such a detached style that it wasn't necessarily by CL Parker. There were some really hot scenes that were like what others we've read, but i think that there was something different and in my opinion a bit off going on. I don't know. At least what we have here is closure - we get an epilogue that shows us where the supporting characters left off along as where Shaw's life and Cassidy's life go now that things have settled. So, i'd say read it, and i'd love to hear what you guys think, since i'm on the fence.

    Although I have not read the first 2 books in this trio, I was able to read, and appreciate, this one for what it was: one couple's emotional, erotic journey back to each other. Cassidy is now a stay-at-home mother of 3 year old Abe and Shaw is the provider, the one who is gone all the time working.

Cassidy is now a stay-at-home mother of 3 year old Abe and Shaw is the provider, the one who is gone all the time working. They've lost their connection with each other and Cassidy is on the verge of walking away. It was a little heartbreaking reading of her pain as she lost both herself and Shaw a little bit more each day. Thank God he walked in on her packing for her getaway and she was able to give him the ultimatum they needed: go to couples' counseling with her or she was leaving. Shaw, as I imagine most men, did not take to counseling well at first. It wasn't until their unconventional, rather adorable therapist suggested another unconventional, but not quite a real therapist, to aid them in their quest for healing, that Shaw was able to get into the idea of help. Of course, that was because it was a sex therapist they would be seeing. And damn, does this not a real therapist help them. Help them right into the most erotic experiences of their lives. Not only do they get to experience unthinkably hot sex, but more importantly, she helps them get back that intimate connection that they apparently shared from the very beginning. I think what I love most about Coming Clean is the realistic approach Parker took. We've all experienced the dimming of the honeymoon phase of our relationships. It's never pretty, and it always hurts. Every pain, every tear shed, every bit of anger and hurtful word Cassidy and Shaw threw at each other is so authentic that I felt as if I were right there in the room experiencing it all with them. And then there's the ending, I absolutely love it! Sweet and with all the right people there with them. I am now going back to read the first 2 books in this series because I absolutely love Coming Clean. It gets 5 sexy, emotional stars! I received an ARC through NetGalley for an honest review.

Lack of time with the family became frequent and the spark in their relationship has dimmed quite a bit putting what they worked for in jeopardy. I just love how Ms. Parker ended this trilogy. She showed that happy ever afters doesn’t necessarily end at just getting the girl. No. Successful relationships take a lot of hard work and Shaw and Cassidy finds this out quick. Parker did an awesome job showing their struggles are as real as mine. I felt their pain. Parker also put a bit more heat in this installment. Definitely hotter than the previous book. Cassidy’s character was consistent from the beginning. Even now that her role has changed, she is still very strong and independent. Shaw, well, is still very rough around the edges. And he showed a typical career oriented dad who can be oblivious about relationship issues. But he still is very sweet and thinks the world of Cassidy and his son. Their way of working things out is a little unorthodox, but the strong characters that they are, they pull through. I cried, laughed, was hot and bothered, and I loved every bit of this installment. I couldn’t ask for a better ending to this trilogy. Kudos to a job well done, Ms Parker *ARC provided by publisher Reviewed by Angela❤ ♡ Don't want to miss any of our posts?

He is the provider and working is how he can do that. Cassidy thinks that maybe they need help by talking to an outsider. Shaw doesn't think that they are having any problems and talking to anyone will is the answer. Shaw is fighting to keep his professional life going and wondering why Cassidy thinks they are having problems. So he will go to the relationship coach, but only for Cassidy. He will learn a few things that he never thought would hear, especially coming from Cassidy's mouth. With the help from the relationship coach and one other person, Shaw and Cassidy will learn a few things to turn the spark back into a roaring fire to save their relationship. He will learn that love is all you need and it will set you free. Can Cassidy get past her insecurities and let Shew help boost her confidence? Will Cassidy show Shaw that love is the answer and she and Abe are all he needs? And who will be the partner to replace Wade at Striker's and working with Shaw? This was the perfect ending to a great series. I loved how it showed that not all relationships are sunshine and rainbows. Shaw and Cassidy will go through pain and heartache and needed the help of an outsider to help with some issues that both were not seeing. I hope there might be more of their friends but if not then that will be OK too.

Whilst book one was all about the race to the partnership, and book two was all about them getting together and finding out they were going to be parents, book three is all about them getting to know each other - ie coming clean! It is a really clever way to tell their story, and the use of a couples therapist and the rather wonderful Katya, to get them in the right place is fabulous. I really felt that Ms Parker did a brilliant job of making the situation real - I would imagine every mother (and possibly many fathers) could read this and absolutely empathise with their lives as new parents and partners. It brought back some of the fun characters from previous books and gave us their news and views on the current state of affairs between Shawn and Cassidy. And the work situation that started it all is also a key player in a story. All in all, there is a lot packed into this book, which will satisfy even the most diehard romantic. This is a trilogy that has made it to my re-read list, and I plan on reading again, all in one go - because inevitably I had forgotten some of the nuance, and because it is a fun and fulfilling story.

Cassidy and Shaw are deep into their relationship and now have a little boy to add to their family. Things don’t stay nice and content long. Cass and Shaw are like any other couple still, they have major issues. I was very nervous from the prologue and then super annoyed a coupled of chapters later. I was cheering on whatever decision Cass was ready to make because man was Shaw frustrating. I loved the way Parker showed them being strong and working through everything after so much hesitation from Shaw. This was some real nitty gritty that after the frustration I couldn’t wait to see where things would go. There are still some hot moments that rival book 1 but also more. I don’t normally like couples to go through so much after I feel like they have had enough but this was a good story that I truly appreciated.

    I'm sad to see Shaw and Cass's journey end. It's like losing a friend. Having watched this couple go from enemies, to rivals, to lovers and now parents leaves me with a bittersweet feeling. Coming Clean is the powerful conclusion to a rocky and driven love story. Along the way Shaw has exposed more of his tragic past and become a little more open but his heartbreaking past is never far from his mind and remains a barrier to his future with Cass and his son.

She's sacrificed much and wants more than a distant lover and a brain full of what is. C.L. Parker, has written a story that is more mature than the others in the Monkey Business Trio series. Coming Clean is about setting priorities and discovering what's important before it's too late.
