In-Depth Review (contains spoilers)
She believed that Harris was enough for her. She believed that the plans her mother forced on her were enough. And she thought one night of adventuring was enough. As the title stated, Georgia really wanted a wild romance that was brief and fulfilling but learned that she needed so much more once she met Logan.
Georgia only knew how to be controlled by her parents and by Harris so when she is faced with Logan who asks what she wants, she doesn't know how to answer that. She struggles to understand that she wants to be in control of her own life and that she wants Logan in it.
Georgia's problems are the most believable of the three friends but also the one with the least concerns. On the outside, she is not abused in any form and her parents do what they do with her wellbeing in mind. But that makes it even more difficult to understand that the methods they take are wrong and are smothering Georgia. But what works out even better than Logan swooping in a saving Georgia, he swoops in and encourages her to save herself. He helps support her confidence in herself and what she is capable in doing. This leads to her figuring out that he is the perfect person for her to have at her side.
Preference wise, I was a little uncomfortable that they started interacting while Logan was still in high school. I understand that their age difference wasn't wide and that Logan was already eighteen when they met, but I would've been more comfortable if they started pursuing each other after he graduated. But that is just a personal preference.
Overall, this was perhaps the best love story out of the trilogy. They really came together after they were already falling in love with each other. Neither of them reigned the other in or forced each other, instead they gave one another what they really needed. For Logan, it was someone believing in him, and for Georgia, it was confidence to do what she wanted. As a couple they met each other halfway and then, together, went so much further than that.
