In the emotional and dramatic sequel to Tryst, Skyler and Blake’s relationship is finally out in the open. But as new challenges open up old wounds, their love is put to the ultimate test...
Blake is desperate to be the kind of man that Skyler deserves, but with his latest film putting him on the verge of superstardom, being there for her is growing harder and harder. As his filming schedule takes him on the road and away from the woman he loves, he discovers that being in a public, committed relationship is no easy task—especially from two thousand miles away.
Skyler wants Blake to pursue his dreams, but his constant absence weighs on her more than she admits. Even as she throws herself into new distractions, she finds herself facing uncertainties and jealousies that could tear apart everything they’ve built. And when disaster strikes while Blake is away, she’ll have to decide if their passion is worth the pain...
So this is the sequel to Tryst, which I really liked, I liked the whole secret romance/brother’s best friend element to it all. So in this book, these two are all out in the open, and now it’s time to see if Blake and Skyler can make it as a couple as both their lives start to take new directions. As noted in the first book Blake books a BIG TIME Hollywood movie that is going to be a lot of attention to him, and well Skyler is getting ready to graduate and possibly go on to medical school.
So the bench mark of this book is how separate these two people’s lives have become. Don’t get me wrong there are a lot of interactions between the two of them, but honestly its much more ships passing in the night kind of interactions, and a lot of the interactions are taking place in the bedroom and not with a lot of time to do couple things outside of the bedroom.
Blake is traveling a lot more in this book, and working long hours on a movie set. I will say I did like how much he misses his girlfriend. Also how he told just about everyone how much he missed her, it was clear he was in a relationship and loved her very much, so he never sent mixed signals about that to anyone. That’s not say that his co-star was 100% on board with his “off limits” sign. I just had a bad feeling about this chick from the very beginning.
But honestly, this book is so much more about Skyler then it is about anyone else. Right before Blake starts work on his movie, he brings Skyler to a photoshop, where she meets Gio, the photographer. I know what you’re thinking, this is going to end up being some kind of love triangle, but honestly it really wasn’t. Blake leaves or is otherwise occupied during most of this book, and Skyler really doesn’t have a lot of people to talk to, and she’s lonely. She ends up with a really good friendship with Gio, I really liked this guy. He is there for her every step of the way, and while he does sometimes force her to think about her life, he doesn’t push her, he just there for her. She’s also dealing with a lot with her ex, who keeps showing up (kind of saw this coming in book one), and let me tell you I hate that guy.
While Skyler and Blake still have awesome chemistry between each other, they also have some issues. Skyler really needs to talk to Blake more, I mean I get how she is embarrassed by the situation with her ex, and she doesn’t want to worry him while he is working on this big break project, but she really should have talked to him more. Now Blake on the other hand, man he was making me super annoyed. He gets super jealous, really easy. He gets mad about things, I honestly don’t believe he should be mad about. And he also goes through some kind of bizarre territorial thing when Skyler started taking an interest in modeling. But at the end of the day I still really like these two together, and everyone has growing pains. I did like this book, and even though a BIG part of that reason is Gio, I still liked it.
