Genre: New Adult, Romance, YA, Contemporary
The dark secret Kayden has kept hidden for years is finally out. Worse, he’s facing charges for battery. The only way to clear his name is for Callie to speak up-something he’ll never ask her to do. Instead, he’ll do whatever he must to protect her . . . even if it means letting go of the only girl he’s ever loved.
Callie knows Kayden is going back to his dark place and desperately wants to save him. But that means facing her greatest fear and admitting her own painful secrets aloud. The thought of breaking her silence terrifies her-but not as much as the thought of losing Kayden forever.
Deep in her heart, Callie knows the time has come for her and Kayden to forget the pain of the past. With the help of her friends Seth and Luke, she makes a plan to show Kayden the life they could have. But can she convince him they can make a fresh start together-or is she already too late?
I had to guys. Though I am in no way a fan of NA genre (refer to my previous post of book #1 as to why) The first book ended on a cliff so of course, I had to satisfy my curiosity!
Right, I’ll keep this one very short. The book picks up right where it left off from the first book I honestly don’t know which is better! Although it had potential, the execution was not to my liking. There was so much potential!
I found it funny that the few things I complained about in book #1 (slow and repetitive) turned out to be the main issues here for me. It was slow, oh so slow. It felt like they were just dragging the story out by having them do pretty much nothing just to add to the page count and only picked up its pace towards the end. The repetitiveness absolutely murdered me! At some point I was just like, you have got to be kidding me! like why are you telling me the same things over and over again?? please just let something happen already!
But I have to say, what redeemed this book for me was that, going towards the ending, I could not tell what was coming or how they were going to deal with the issues they faced at the end of the first book. I had ideas but the fact that I couldn’t be sure was refreshing. I loved Kayden so much more than Kalie, who by the way could’ve done a better job at being a better friend to Seth. I felt like he was doing most of the supporting, all the helping and being there for her (even though he had his own issues to deal with – I told you EVERYONE is going through something) while Kalie had to be prompted to ask about him, or how he was doing.
So, if you can get through the first half and push through – you’ll love the last half.
