When 24 year-old Sydney Allen fell for the sexy Drew Forrester, it threw her life into chaos.
The daughter of Hollywood royalty, Sydney had been hiding her identity from the world since her parents' tumultuous and very public divorce when she was 12.
Dating Drew forced her back into the spotlight to face some of her old demons. Now, she has to relearn how to live with the fame that she ran from for so long. Can her relationship with Drew survive the scrutiny?
When a media scandal that spans three countries and two continents threatens to destroy them and the people they love most, Sydney needs to decide if she's strong enough to weather the storm that comes with being famous.
I read/reviewed the first book in this series not to long ago, and this book picked up right where the first book left off. I really enjoyed the first book in this series, and I felt so sad for both Drew and Sydney at the end of book one (this review will contain spoilers for book one, you have been warned).
So at the end of book one, Sydney is attacked by a crazy man, the old stalker from her childhood and she ends up miscarrying her baby. Which is all horrible. I really was interested to see how both Sydney and Drew were going to handle this traumatic event. Truth be told, Drew doesn’t deal with it well at all, he goes into crazy over protective man mood, and Sydney, well I’m not sure she really even deals with the loss until much later.
Drew takes over-protectiveness to the extreme in this book, and his temper is like completely out of control. I mean it’s a little insane how he acts. When Sydney and Drew go out and a fan touches her, he loses his marbles, and then in his mind he feels like she shouldn’t have been dressed a certain way, and if she hasn’t been maybe she wouldn’t have be touched. He just gets out of control with it all. I can totally understand why Sydney starts to feel so isolated and like she can’t do anything. I mean I totally get that Drew just needs to feel in control after what happened in the previous book, but he takes it too far.
I was actually really proud of Sydney in this book. In the previous book she is so nervous about anyone finding out who she is that she isolates herself, but in this book she really starts to come out of her shell. She goes out with friends, and learns to make new friends. And more than that, when she starts to feel isolated and trapped when Drew starts to lose it, she is able to stand up and say its too much and that she needs to take care of herself.
A couple of things stood out to me in this book. The first is that I loved that even though Sydney and Drew had some issues that they had to work through, they never stopped loving each other, and you could tell their bond was totally in tact. I loved some of the secondary characters in this book, Leah made a great and memorable appearance, but Allie, Drew’s little sister really was the show stealer for the secondary character.
This book is a great sequel in this series, and one I enjoyed reading from beginning to end. I have really grown to love these characters and I think you will too. So if you like new adult romances, or romances with movie stars, then you should check out this series.
