Blog tour: Inexpressible Island by Paullina Simons

I received a copy of this book from the publicist in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions expressed here are my own.

Paullina is back with the conclusion to the explosive End of Forever trilogy and I can’t wait to find out how it’s all tied up!

This series is about how Julian Cruz, a blogger, who meets an actress named Josephine and falls in love immediately. He can’t wait to spend the rest of his life with her, but fate has other plans. This is the start of a saga that travels across different times in a bid to get the star-crossed lovers back together. And now, Inexpressible Island, the finale to this tale that bends time as we know it has just released.

Goodreads synopsis:

Inexpressible Island (End of Forever, #3)

The third and final novel in Paullina Simons’ unforgettable End of Forever saga concludes Julian and Josephine’s heartbreaking love story that has spanned lifetimes.

They were ready for anything…except the end

Julian has lost everything he ever loved and is almost out of time. His life and death struggle against fate offers him one last chance to do the impossible and save the woman to whom he is permanently bound.

Together, Julian and Josephine must wage war against the relentless dark force that threatens to destroy them. This fight will take everything they have and everything they are as they try once more to give each other their unfinished lives back.

As time runs out for the star-crossed lovers, Julian learns that fate has one last cruel trick in store for them–and even a man who has lost everything still has something left to lose. 


I haven’t started reading Inexpressible Island yet, but I can’t wait because I enjoy Paullina’s writing style. Also, the second book left me with more questions than answers and I’m very curious about how this story is tied up in the end.

This series has the insta love trope which I absolutely detest. When I started the series with The Tiger Catcher, I was very critical of it in my review.

“Julian and Josephine have a whirlwind romance ending in betrayal and tragedy. With any other couple, the reaction that followed the tragedy would have made me sad, but with this one, my only reaction was “JFC you knew each other for two months, sit the fuck down. And get some therapy, maybe.””

And yet, I’ve stuck with it because of the story and the time travel elements. Paullina writes heartbreak in such a powerful voice, you just can’t put it down despite not being able to root for the main character. Watching Julian travel back in time to find his future will surely draw a tear or two from you.

I’m really looking forward to reading this book soon!
