This book is the sequel to another book I read/reviewed last week, and I have to admit that I had decently high expectations for this book. So the book literally picks off right where the other one left off, Chloe and Drake are in their house together when Chloe’s dear ole’ mom shows up at the front door. And from the build up from the first book in the series you can tell this is not going to be a welcome hello from mommy dearest. The setting for this book is much different then the first because Drake’s band is leaving to go on tour and after Chloe finds out that her aunt is dying, she ends up spending much of book at her aunts house. So there is definitely a separation between Chloe and Drake for much of the book, while they are still together as a couple they are away from each other, which makes the interactions they do have together all the more intense.

But for me, especially since the book is told in Chloe’s POV the reader get insight into her inner workings, well let’s just say they did not sit right with me. For me it never really came off that Chloe was actually torn between Logan and Drake, she always knew that Drake was it for her, she just went along with Logan because Drake told her he would be bad in a relationship. Logan is suppose to be her best friend and yet she has no problem leading him on and letting him really believe there is something going on between the two of them. The whole thing just sat with me wrong, I didn’t feel for her, I actually started to dislike her. And when it comes to the heroine in a story, I can’t not […]
