    Well, the end came and it ended good.Our favorite au pairs graduated from high school and came back for one more summer together, thanks to Eliza. Eliza is now an up-and-coming starlet-turned-designer. And Jeremy wants to move fast. Would she keep up? Mara has a new boyfriend named David. But when he lefts her stranded, her plans get ruined. She wants to be a writer, starting a novel about au pairs. Nothing's going to distract her from the task at hand...except perhaps her old flame, Ryan Perry. And Jacqui gets a chance to be a model. But her friends warn her that Marcus is nothing but trouble. Will she listen and not let herself ruin her future?This books promises a hot--correct that, CRAZY HOT--summer book and it kept that promise. Still cheesy and predictable, but entertaining. At the end, it's explained that this was more of the friendship between the girls, not the jobs they held. Curtains closed, the au pairs are ready for what the future holds.

    I think I’d just like to state the fact that after rigorous switching back and forth between audiobooking and reading this as an ebook, I can say that I’m FINALLY done the Au Pairs series by Melissa de la Cruz. [image error]Besides the fact that I decently enjoyed Beach Lane a couple of years ago, I wasn’t exactly sure what the heck was going on here. This series should not be called The Au Pairs because if there’s something that’s not in here, then it’s definitely babysitting. Except for maybe in the first book . . . because the author knew that she had to put at least something in there related to the title. Maybe even a little bit in this book, because the author must be legally obligated to put in some form of babysitting . . . Unfortunately, the characters and this series just becomes redundant overall, and I’d lost more than enough interest after reading Skinny Dipping, any faith that I’d really had in this series was just killed off in Sun-Kissed.(view spoiler)[And besides the fact that Mara and Ryan just . . . ugh. Whatever. Obviously they ended up together because bleh. Also, am I supposed to be surprised by the fact that Mara wrote the Beach Lane series? Not really sure . . .(hide spoiler)]I don’t really think I’d recommend this to anyone, but I’d been giving this series a repeated 2-star rating based on the fact that they were extremely quick to get through and that the drama was ridiculous enough to keep me invested. Otherwise, I just finished this series for the sake of knowing what happens at the end.["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>

    The Au Pairs: Crazy Hot, the fourth book in the Au Pairs series by Melissa de la Cruz tells the story of best friends Eliza, Jacqui and Mara and their fourth summer in the Hamptons.Now, this book is usually the type of book I reserve for reading at the beach, but I saw it at my library and realized I hadn’t read it yet, so I grabbed it up. It may be November, but this book made me feel like I was sitting on a beach chair with the sand in my toes and a drink in hand.This summer, Eliza is opening a boutique. Jacqui and Mara are both au-pairing, but Jacqui becomes a model for Eliza’s clothing line. Mara starts a blog chronicling her time as a Hamptons au pair.All three girls are a little more grown up this year and definitely easy to relate to. I loved Eliza’s story line with her boyfriend and her shop. I haven’t liked Eliza much in the past three books, but I loved her in this one. Jacqui is still the same old Jacqui to me. However, Mara, who used to be my favorite down to earth character, is almost not likeable at all in this installment. I was annoyed by her and her attitude almost the entire book.I especially enjoyed all of the love story lines in this book. Wait until you read about Mara’s boyfriend David…the drama that ensues in that line is definitely worth reading. Jacqui, once again, falls for a boy who couldn’t care less and Eliza and Jeremy get into an interesting little situation of their own.A quick, fun and easy read to get you out of those winter blues!

    Well, it is the end of the Au Pair series. I must say, that I really enjoyed it. It was easy to read, quick moving and kept me interested through all 4 books. I recommend these books to you if you like YAF, Fashion and Friendship!

    This was a very satisfying conclusion to a really good series. The story was fun and fast paced and the characters didn't seem dry or overused. Easily a 4.5/5 star read.

    Crazy Hot with is the fourth book in the Au Pairs series by Melissa de la Cruz. It’s always hot in the Hamptons, but this summer, it’s Crazy Hot with our favorite trio together for their fourth and last summer in the Hamptons.This year, while her first year at Parsons, Eliza learns that her mother is leaving her father for her new gym train, a much younger man. Eliza was very shock to hear the news since her mother had always stood by her father, especially since the business scandal. Then, her dad finds himself a new and young girlfriend, Suzy Finnemore, who has five young kids. Eliza is following her dream and passion and she is now an up-and-coming young designer. She starts to open her very first boutique to show her fall collection she has created. She is still with her boyfriend Jeremy, but as her career gets fast-tracked and Jeremy wants to move fast by giving her a ring. Eliza is feeling scared and confused and has a hard time keeping up. Can she keep it up? As for Mara, just finishing her first year in Columbia, she was very looking forward for the summer since she was going to travel to Europe to write the latest European edition of the student-friendly travel guide with her new boyfriend David. But when she forgot to renew her passport and David leaves her stranded while he boards on the plane, all her summer plans are ruined. Then, she gets a call from Eliza that convinces her to come to the Hamptons and become an pair for her dad’s girlfriend and spend the summer one more time together. Even Eliza suggest Mara to write a novel about her experience as an au pair and against her better judgement, Mara agrees and comes to the Hamptons. Mara works hard as an au pair and writing for her blog. She certainly wants no distraction, except well maybe her ex-boyfriend Ryan. He is staying over the Hamptons to wait for someone to rent their house to join his family in London. But will they ever be together one more time or part their own ways for good?And last of all, Jacqui has finally graduated her fifth year in high school in São Paulo and is finally going to NYU in the fall. She will work as an au pair once again for Perry’s until, last minute, they tell her that they will to move to London. Jacqui was very devastated of the news, she is now jobless and homeless and finds herself in the middle of Central Park, when suddenly meets a stranger, Pete Rockwood, a young and good-looking man from Indiana. She tells him about what happen because somehow, she trusted him and he gives her advice to follow heart and to believe that her dreams will come true. She doesn’t know if she will ever cross paths will Pete since he is the first guy that didn’t even flirt with her and just respects her. When she receives a call from Eliza, Jacqui accepts the job as an au pair. Jacqui also gets attention from Marcus Easton, an Australian fashion photographer, to become an international supermodel for Eliza’s clothing line for Vogue. Jacqui accepts to do it for her friend and loves to model and is reconsidering her future: modeling over NYU. Will she make a good choice? Is it what she really wants, after all the hard work she has done to get it NYU?I have felt that these girls have grown up and become more mature as young adults and they are very easy to relate further in the series. They felt more realistic as the series progressed. I always have loved the three main characters and I love how Melissa De La Cruz described these three different girls from different backgrounds. The main theme after a book to another in this series has always been about the friendship between Eliza, Mara and Jacqui. The series has always been cheesy and predictable but very entertaing.It’s a very quick, fun and easy to read and I’m sad to say the series is finally over. I just wished we had a glimpse of the future of the characters to know where they are in the future. Just reading the series taught me to just follow your heart, love those who are around you and have fun, especially with great friends. (view spoiler)[ What I also enjoyed and loved is the idea that how Mara had written the Au Pair series and described the cover book of her first novel would be like: the three girls in bikinis, which is exactly the first cover of the first book, The Au Pairs.(hide spoiler)]

    I am officially all done with this series! It had many, many low points, but also a couple highs as well. I'm pleased with how everything worked out in the end. Though I wasn't thrilled about one couple pairing, they just don't seem to be good for each other in my mind. This was a fun read overall, though I'm incredibly glad to be done!

    While I was reading this book, I really thought I would start enjoying it. The cover page got me interested in the story. Before I started reading the book I thought it was going to be about a hot steamy romance, but I was wrong. It turned out to be about three rich white girls and their "problems". I laugh at the word problem, I wish I had their problems. This book really upset and I couldn't even finish it because I hated it so much. The one thing the author did well was to create a very detailed character description. She really made me imagine what the characters looked liked and how they acted. She really crafted imagery when she was writing this. I could imagine hating these girls in real life because of what they thought were "problems". In the book there was a short passage that really made me imagine the scene. Mara had just found out she was fired from her summer job because she didn't get her passport updated. "Mara felt the tears start to bubble up in her eyes. He brought her in for a hug, wrapping his arms tightly around her waist. "How could they?" she whispered, nuzzling David's shoulder." I could just imagine her standing there in the middle of the airport trying not to cry because she couldn't go to Europe with her boyfriend.If I was her writing teacher, I felt like she really didn't write a story with a good plot. I don't know how many people want to read about three rich white girls and their "problems", because I know I don't. I feel like she should have done more research to find out what young adults/adults like to read. She should have gotten a young adult to read it first and get their feedback before she published this book. I would use this text as an example of 'knowing one's audience' and writing towards that audience. I would tell my students to really think about who they want their audience to be. If someone is outside their projected audience, then they should know that they may not like the book. The mini-lesson I would teach from reading this book, would be to investigate and figure out who you really want to read your book.

    I don't know if it's because the series has gotten worse or I've become a more judgemental reader, but I think I'm over these books. I'm glad this is the last one. I know we're meant to suspend our disbelief and enjoy the story as a crazy escapist romp through the realms of the implausible, but I just can't do it anymore. Eliza, upon finishing her first year at Parsons, has already shown her collection at NYFW, opened a boutique in the Hamptons and managed to sell a bunch of clothes to Hamptons socialites. Never mind that she's a party girl with just one year of design school under her belt, and the fact that it takes weeks, if not months, to actually produce the clothes that she's somehow selling like hotcakes... and yet she always has enough items in stock. She also managed to design and produce items for a fall and a resort collection in a matter of weeks. I'm not sure that this is really how fashion works.Mara has become spoiled and irritating. She can dump her boyfriend for going to Europe to work without her, after she forgot to renew her passport (her fault) but she can't find the cojones to confront Jacqui about shirking her au pair duties. She also complains about her boyfriend emailing and texting her from Europe (after he refused to quit his job to be with her) but never calling. In the end, he becomes completely OOC so she can dump him and go be with Ryan. Boring and predictable. Jacqui is back to being obsessed with men and flaunting her fabulous body around the Hamptons, acting completely OOC as well. Boring. Just like the last book, there is very little drama - with the kids, with the other Hamptons socialites, with the girls' bosses. It's like de la Cruz is trying to be introspective and thoughtful on growing up and discovering yourself - but that's not why we're reading these books! Save the morals for another series.

    Reviewed by Jennifer Rummel for TeensReadToo.comIt's always hot in the Hamptons, but this year it's CRAZY HOT with the three girls together again. Just when they thought they would be separated for the summer, once again fate brought them together. Mara and Jacqui are actually au pairing for Eliza's father's new wife. Eliza herself is busy opening up her own store, filled with her fabulous clothes. Of course, her two best friends agree to model for the opening and Jacqui catches one photographer's eye. Before the girls have time to process the possibilities, the photographer decides that he wants to shoot Eliza's clothes with Jacqui as the premiere model for Vogue. Jacqui's not too sure she wants to be in the modeling business, but Eliza begs her. And soon enough the two girls are off to parties and shoots, leaving Mara to deal with the kids alone. Mara's feeling left out. Eliza feels crazed with the store, and Jeremy's wishes for the future leave her feeling scared and confused. Jacqui feels like this summer is shaping up the rest of her life, but it isn't the life that she thought she wanted. Sisterhood means knowing your friends and sharing the truth with them, even if the truth is something they're not yet ready to hear. When the girls have a bang-up fight, it's time for them to find steady footing on their own and to trust in themselves.

    I love The Au Pairs. I went to the library one day and just randomly picked it up and I fell in love with the characters even though some of their antics were kind of, um, dumb. But the way Melissa de la Cruz depicts the relationship between the 3 girls is wonderful and pretty realistic even if you were to take them out of the Hamptons and make them schoolgirls somewhere in a rual area. They're all different with different backgrounds and different priorites but they somehow seem to balance each other out and show each other new things and ways to think and act.Take Mara for example. The sweet goody-goody who has never had a real day of fun until she comes to the Hamptons and learns that she can have fun and look amazing and still be Mara Waters. Jacqui and Eliza also watch and learn from each other to be more independent and to look deeper than social class and money and using looks to get what they want. Though Mara isn't exactly perfect either; Jacqui's and Eliza's habits rubbed onto her for a while.But anywho, the girls all lived and learned. Although I liked the ending of this, I would've loved to see the girls go one more crazy adventures together but I guess we can think about what goes on next with these girls ourselves.

    FABULOUSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS. I was SO SO SO happy that the last book was just -- if not better! than the first two in the series. I don't know what happened to the third book, that was just a flop. But Crazy Hot was so good, I finished it in like three days or less, I can't remember, but it was so amazing, and I am so incredibly sad the series is all over. But, in a way, I'm glad it ended on a good note, because some books that have 4309565 books in the series can really ruin the story for a person. (cough, cough pretty little liars). SPOILER ALERT.I was almost brought to tears when I found out that Mara had "written" the series, I thought that was so cute, and how she described what the cover of her first book would be (three girls in bikinis) which is the cover of the first book in the series. And how one of the last paragraphs in the last book, Mara explained what the series was really all about. not boys, not summer, not dramatic teenage life, but, are you ready? friendship.should i run to get the box of kleenex?

    “They’re older, but not necessarily wiser.” That’s the tagline as the world’s favorite au pairs come back to the Hamptons for one last summer fling.Eliza had a successful freshman year at Parsons and is now opening her own store in the Hamptons. It’s hard for her to juggle publicizing her store and her relationship with Jeremy, however, both of which are moving forward at lightning speed, but only one of which she is certain about for now.Jacqui finished up her fifth year of high school and is excited to finally attend her dream school, NYU. She falls under the charm of two Australian photographer brothers who try to convince her to try out modeling, something she’s always hated. And Mara suffers what appears to be a setback when her plans to travel Europe as a journalist with her boyfriend David fall to pieces when her passport expires. Stuck with what she believes will be a crappy summer, she agrees to act as au pair for Eliza’s stepmom’s five children, along with Jacqui.CRAZY HOT promises a hopeful future for the three friends, full of love, success, and passion.

    This book is about three college age girls who are friends and how they spend the summer together. Eliza goes to the Hamptons to spend time with her father and his girlfriend while she opens up a store in New York. Her friends Jaqui and Mara get jobs as au pairs at Eliza's father's house taking care of his girlfriend's children. All the people in the book are extremely wealthy which makes it harder for the average person to relate to the characters but overall I still thought this book was enjoyable.I liked the excitement of the book from Eliza's fashion design to Jaqui becomming a model for Eliza to their relationships. What i disliked was the fact that I couldn't relate to the characters or the plotline very well because their lives were so outrageous that it took out some of the believability. I would recomend this book to women between the ages of 16-22 who want to read a book about crazy daily drama about the lifestyles of the rich and famous and about the pressure and effect on relationships when you are living life in the limelight.

    I think that each of the novels from theBeach Laneseries just got worse every time. Crazy Hot was good, but not as great as the rest. I think that the author over-exaggerated with the whole series, it ended just fine with being a trilogy. Mara, Eliza, and Jacqui are all doing something different, and are in for their final summer in the Hamptons, before everything is about to change forever. Like I said in my previous reviews of these novels, the characters aren't like the beginning. Now, they're very stuck-up, and snobby. Really, I want the old Mara, Eliza, and Jacqui back, personally. The plot was very different than the rest. I mean, of course these girls are more mature than they first started as. And this concept changed the plot a lot. I wasn't as excited to read this one as the rest, and I didn't go wild about it when I was done. Hoping that De la Cruz'sBlue Bloodsseries will be better than this one!

    Tal vez el libro que más me ha costado leer, y no sé muy bien si ha sido porque no era el momento (los otros los leí en verano y me apetecían más, por el simple hecho de que también transcurrieron en la misma época, y este no) o simplemente porque ya estaba un poco desconectada de la historia. Pero bueno, aún así una vez que conseguí "ponerme a ello" a vuelto a ser una lectura fácil y ligera.Tal vez lo peor es ver que tras 4 libros las cosas acaban como crees que van a acabar, vamos que no ha cambiado apenas nada desde el primer libro. Y vale, puede que sea mucho pedir para una serie juvenil centrada en la high society y el verano, y las fiestas y demás, pero es que absolutamente nada me ha sorprendido.Por lo demás, creo que es una serie entretenida, que si bien no va más allá, y no puedes esperar que lo haga, cumple al 100% su función

    In the final book of the Au Pairs series, Eliza, Mara, and Jacqui are thrown together again. When Mara's plans to travel Europe fall apart, and when Jacqui's summer work falls through (the Perry's move to Europe), they end up au pair-ing for Eliza's stepmom's kids. Eliza's success keeps going as she opens a Hamptons' boutique and somehow ends up engaged...or is she? Mara starts a blog on the insider's view of life in Hamptons and can't get Ryan out of her head. Jacqui is enticed into the modeling world, but will she regret it?Not too much character development and I got annoyed with the flakiness of the story/characters at times. They just never learn from their mistakes! I did like how the series was summed up with a bit of a meta-twist at the end.

    As the book said itself at the end, it is a story about friendship in the first place. When the girls met, they had very little in common but they grew to become friends, even best friends who are always here for each other, which is actually brilliant.What I liked a lot was how the girls' dreams eventually came true. I mean, a lot of girls wish they could be fashion designers, models or authors and in fact our goals don't have to be as overrated as theirs but I think that it can give us hope and motivation that with hard work and people that support you, you can handle a lot.Finally, I'm sorry that this is the last instalment since I could definitely follow the girls further on but end well, all well.

    this was a nice wrap-up to the series, though part of me is sorry to see it end. it's light, fun reading that is a nice distraction from the drudgery of life.i have to say, though, that things went a little bit overboard with Suzy's kids' precociousness. chess prodigies? okay. debating Hannity and Colmes? that's jumping the shark to make seven year olds interested in a pair of conservative "news" blowhards, IMO. (and FTR, i'd say the same thing if they were watching a so-called liberal network. it's just not believable that kids that young would care or even follow the blather coming from such "reporters".)other than that complaint, nice finale book.

    I really enjoyed this series as a whole! It was a very good summer read filled with drama, name drops and glamorous lives! Makes me wish I could live it some times! I'm undecided about the ending of the book. I don't know if I liked it or was slightly disappointed by it? I just feel like it was left almost open as if there could be another book put behind it. However, I really liked how Mara and Ryan finally ended up together! They have been my favourite couple since day one! I also like how at the end, it was made to be that Mara wrote the first book of the Au Pairs series, and maybe even the books after!

    "Hampton heat in the summer returns with the popular Au Pairs. This fourth installment in Melissa de la Cruz's sizzling hot series will surprise and charm readers with new fashion trends, life-changing questions and heartbreaking decisions."i read this book a while ago, somewhere between entering and adapting into middle school. my taste in books were different then, i just got off the high of the harry potter universe and no book seemed to be good enough for me. now when i look back, i see that is because i always spent time in the rubbish teen section. but this book is an ultimate summer beach read. it kept me turning pages, not because it was enlightening, but because of the drama.

    10.20.10 this book i also read this summer, and i was really intersting. even though i didnt really have time to read since i worked, i would pick it up and read it even if it was just for five minutes. i love the mature setting, and how the characters get to have the summer of their life, while having some ups and downs, which they end up solving in the long run. i also liked how i could connec to most of the things that the girls wanted, and then things that happened in their lifes. i enjoyed reading it, it really is a summer most have.

    This was my favorite out of all of the books from the Au Pairs. All of the girls seemed to begin with their dream jobs. Who can't be proud of Liza and her fashion line? Who can't be worrisome for Jaciqu and the Saucy Aussies? And who doesn't want to scream at Mara to dump David for good and go running back to Ryan?I hated to see this one end, but knowing that this was another "Great summer" for the girls, I loved it. The whole story was wrapped up nicely but I can't help but feeling like I'd love to see a wedding story (wink Wink) soon!

    The fourth and final book of the Au Pairs was the icing on top of the cake of a great series. It's certainly not going to be a literary masterpiece, but if you are looking for fun, girlie, YA fiction, I recommend these books. I loved the growth of the characters, and the fast paced backdrop of the Hamptons.To add, I am actually sad the series is over, it only took me a week to read the books, and each time I finished one I was ready for more. Now it's over and I am still ready for more!

    summers in the Hamptons are never forgettable in the lives of this group of friends. you never know whats going to happen next and even when it seems predictable it changes in the blink of an eye. i recommend this to any girl who likes books about the lives of rich spoiled girls who have crazy lives but still aren't happy all of the time.

    This book was mediocre. The beginning was good, the whole middle was just plain boring, and the last 10 pages were good. I had to read it since I read the other 3 book in the series, but was kind of disappointed with the final book. I was glad to find out what happened with the futures of all 3 girls though.
