Sorry my review is so late! I worked the closing shift and just now got around to posting this.
I’m not really sure how I feel about this book. I wasn’t a huge fan of Rival Love, but when I heard there was going to be a second book I was sure it would tie up some strings and that it would be great. I was glad that the issue of Skylar being in New York was resolved relatively quickly, but there was still a lot of book left, and I knew there would have to be another problem. The problem I thought there was going to be and the problem there actually was were two completely different things. I hated the problem that there actually was, and I hate that a lot of books seem to be going towards that as a thing that keeps a couple apart. Does it really happen? Sure. Do I want to read about it? Not really.
There were moments in the book that I was like, “Yay! They’re exhibiting more maturity!” but then they would do something completely whatever or nonsensical a few pages later and it killed me. I know that they are teenagers, and I feel like some teenagers probably act and react the same way Skylar and Caleb did, but I thought a lot of Caleb and Skylar’s rants/complaints/problems were a little ridiculous. There were good things about the book. I liked that Skylar was open with her dad at long last. I also liked that some people were able to be shown in a better light, and that other people’s true colors came out and were actually accepted as being real.
I’m starting to think that this series just isn’t for me. I hope that my less than stellar review hasn’t put you off of reading it or giving it a chance. I hope that you’ll check out the series!
