Mr. Perfect, Mr. Romantic, Mr. Corporate, Mr. Mysterious, and Mr. Match found what they were looking for and now it’s time to seal the deal. Five Aston hasn’t quite found his happily ever after yet… not quite. But he will. And he’s about to host the party of the century for all his family and friends.
If you loved Happily Ever After, you can’t miss this one either. It’s the delicious cherry on top of the most perfect dessert and all your favorite characters will be back for one… final… swoon-worthy story.
Mr. and Mrs. is the perfect ending to the Mister series, it was fun, a little mysterious and a lot romantic. I got to see my favorite Five in his element.
First of all, if you have not read the whole Mister series, plus Five, you should not continue reading this review, as there will be spoilers for prior books in here.
Mr. and Mrs. happened on Five’s private island, and all the misters showed up for a group wedding. We got to know what Five and Rory have been up to since the ending of Five, and I loved seeing them happy with their four daughters. They were princesses in their own right, and I had so much fun reading about them, especially the two youngest ones who were always up to no good.
Little by little, the misters arrive on the island, and they all bring with them a new set of problems. Of course, Five is already neck-deep in his own problems as Rory and the twins have decided it’s a good idea for the girls to be tested so they can go to school. In the real world.
Huss managed to bring some mystery into Mr. and Mrs. as well, and the whole story was just plain fun. As well as extremely fulfilling for those of us who have followed Five ever since he was born. The scenery on the island was beautiful, and all the past rivalry between the guys was still going on as well.
Five. Enough said. Nah, not really. I love this character so much, almost as much as I love his father, Ford. He is still analysing everything, thinking out worst-case scenarios and ready to everything humanly possible to keep his family safe.
Rory has become a very strong and secure woman, and she wants to do what is best for her daughters. Even at the cost of upsetting Five.
Ollie is weirdly angry with Pax because of his relationship with Cindy. And that made for some hilarious moments as he did everything he could to keep Pax’s hands off his little sister.
Mac and Ellie are trying to get pregnant with no success after ten months, and Ellie is really down about it. So much so that other characters won’t even share their good news with her.
West and Tori have adopted a boy, and he’s strangely mature for his age. Not acting like he even needs parents. All West wants to do is make sure his boy gets a real childhood.
Nolan and Ivy have a young daughter, and just her name alone made me smile – she’s named Bronte. How can we not love that?
Pax and Cindy are the funniest of all the couples. They have this game they play where Pax is a detective. And Cindy disappears on him, and he has to find her to get his prize… *devil smiley*
Writing style :
First person point of view, present tense, with each of the Misters having their own chapters. This delighted me to no end, both because I enjoyed their separate books, and because Huss managed to bring their unique voices into the story so there was never any confusion.
First of all, I was so happy to get this happily ever after story. I didn’t love the very first Mister story, but as the series moved on, I got so involved in the overall story I just couldn’t stop wanting more. With Mr. and Mrs. I did get more. And I got all the feels. Happiness, fright, hope, anger, hesitation, and all the love.
She’s scared and I don’t blame her. I’m scared too. I kept this secret from Oliver for fifteen years. And yeah, back then he was just a kid. But he’s not a kid now. I think he’s gonna kick my ass. I think I deserve to get my ass kicked.
We had to buy special baby headphones for the ride because the noise level is too much for a six-month-old. I got black ones. With little skulls on them. And while I was at it, I bought her a little flight jacket to match. It has the most badass patches on it.
