    4 Stars!A fresh start was irrelevant when the dark things in your past were always following you. Jos has changed. She was the perfect student, perfect daughter, perfect sister. But now, everything has different. No one knows why, but Jos does. She’s lost someone important to her and she can’t help but blame herself. Her mother sends her to live with her sister Renee to try to straighten her out. She needs a fresh start, a new beginning. There, she meets the gang. Jos is closed off. She meets people that help bring her out of her shell. One is her new bff, Hannah. And then there is Dusty. Dusty has some issues, like Jos. He’s not forthcoming about himself or his issues. He and Jos both have made mistakes in the past, and both are trying to move on. Dusty befriends Jos, but that sexual tension is always lingering in the background. They both start to develop feelings for one another, but neither is willing to act on it. It gets frustrating. This book had a slow start for me. It didn’t pick up until after the half way point, but once it did, I became more invested with Jos and Dusty and started to enjoy it more. Once Dusty and Jos started to admit their feelings, I couldn’t put the book down.Dusty and Jos have an attraction and definete chemistry, but it runs deeper than that. Dusty knows Jos has gone through something hard, and he wants to help her. To heal her. “Let me help you. Let me help you carry it. We can do it together, Jos. I want to be with you.”
Neither Jos nor Dusty could ever imagine the connection the two share. When both of their secrets come to light, and they see how truly intertwined their pasts are, will they be able to deal?
We are stronger than what happens to us. You can’t let it define you. The fucked-up parts of you are just that. Parts.This was a little heavy, a little funny and a little angsty. The characters were beautifully broken and helped each other to heal. Dusty was a reformed bad boy. I loved his sweet side. Jos was a likable character, even if she was a little depressing at times. I enjoyed catching up with all the characters from My Favorite Mistake. Hunter, Taylor, and the rest of the gang. We also get introduced to a new character named Hannah. She brought the book to life with her sense of humor and fun loving nature. She gave the story so many laugh out loud moments, it was great. “Gorgeous. If I had a dick, I’d totally do you.”
“That’s the nicest thing anyone’s ever said to me.”
Even though I didn’t love this as much as My Favorite Mistake, it was still a nice NA read. **ARC kindly provided by publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review**

    3 STARS!!Ohhh, I absolutely adored My Favourite Mistake and have reread it so many times. So when I heard a second book was coming out with new characters but the old ones was making an appearance I was so excited. Unfortunately for me this book didn't work very well and left me disappointed...I found there wasn't really much of a story. In the first book we met Jos's Sister Renee and I really liked her BUT in this book she was acting more like a strict mother towards Jos then a sister! She was always putting Jos down making her sound so bad when really she wasn't bad at all. Most 18 year olds go out drinking and I just found Renee to be a hypocrite.Jos at first was a moody teenager but I actually really liked her attitude I found her pretty sassy, I also felt sorry for her as her family thought she was so bad and unhappy when really she was unhappy before but they clearly didn't notice... I found hers and Dusty's relationship to be such a slow build and not in a good way. It was all about Jos's secret and not much else.What we saw of Dusty I adored he was perfect for Jos but we only started seeing more of him at the half way mark and even then I struggled to find the chemistry and butterflies I get with certain book relationships! I felt this book has kind of ruined me wanting to reread My Favourite Mistake again because all the characters in that book has been turned into soppy, sickly, happy characters and made me feel they was too happy which came across false. One person I really loved was Jos's best friend Hannah... That girl has been through A LOT and people was so cruel to her yet she was still happy, funny, supportive and a total smart arse.I'm now in a bit of a downer mood just because I have waited so long *sigh* and It. Just. Did. Not. Work... Well for me anyway! Some people may love this book. We all have different tastes in books and different opinions!!

    2 starsDusty and Jos both have secrets. But will their secrets bring them closer together or tear them apart?Things that irritated me: Renee and her over controlling behaviour was suffocating. Jos acted like a moody teenager and I didnt feel any growth in her character. I found all the side characters all sickenly happy, considering you have 3 couples all living together.For a 3 star Im trying to think of something I like but....nope, nothing. This book was a slow burner and I felt like nothing exciting happened. I think this sequel is similar to book 1 but this book just wasnt for me x

    3.5 StarsJos Archer used to be the perfect girl, perfect grades, bright future; it was all mapped out for her until it wasn't. When an event has her spiraling out of control her sister, Renee steps in. Now, for those that don’t remember Renee from My Favorite Mistake, she was Taylor’s friend and Roommate. Being forced to leave her college in New Hampshire to move in with Renee and the gang (Yep, they are all there – Taylor, Hunter, Paul, Mace, Renee and Darah) in Maine and transfer schools. This way Renee can keep a close eye on her sister and hopefully figure out what triggered her sudden change.But Jos isn't ready to let anyone in or expose her secret. But that isn’t as easy as it seemed when Dusty Sharp enters her life and doesn’t seem to be in any hurry to leave.Dusty has his own past that left him a changed man, but his change allowed him to escape his own destruction. He’s finally in a better place, making the right choices and finding it difficult to stay away from the one girl he shouldn’t want. It had been so long since I had read My Favorite Mistake that I had to skim through the last few pages to get my mind in the right place for this read. But as it turns out it really wasn't needed. Since the whole gang returns it was pretty easy to fall right back into this story as Chelsea Cameron gives a bit of back-story with each of the characters. I loved getting a glimpse into Taylor & Hunter again after all these months along with the other characters. The story was a slow starter for me, it seemed to take forever to get to the point where Dusty and Jos were ready to admit their attraction and even longer to discover what her secret was. But once I hit the halfway point, everything started to fit together and I started to really enjoy the story.I was frustrated with Renee’s behavior throughout this entire story though. As the big sister I can see where her worry came from, but without really having been able to watch the perfect version of Jos crash & burn, it seemed a bit over the top. I think had we seen more of the way Jos was losing control Renee’s behavior would have made more sense. Instead I was frustrated with the constant lack of trust and unreasonable rules placed on an eighteen year old girl by someone just a few years older. Having that left out had an impact in the story for me overall.Dusty was a likable character that too had his share of screw ups in his past, having an event becoming the catalyst for change and the way it was all tied together with the event that led Jos down the opposite path was unexpected and added to the story, to their story. This was a very sweet coming of age romance that stayed true to the style in which My Favorite Mistake was written. Arc received via NetGallery in exchange for an honest reivew.

    3 or a little more *** This is book 2 in Chelsea Cameron's My Favorite Mistakes series and I will admit I really liked book one, but I was not completely blown away by this one.Jos Archer suffers loss and changes her very being. A one-time straight A classy gal is now skipping class and "living on the edge." Enter very annoying and overbearing sister who brings her to Bangor Maine to live and attend a new school. Nothing is getting through to this sad and quite bitchy gal. Well, nothing that is until a quirky yet sexy music man, Dusty Sharp appears in her life. He seems to be around every turn and his very presence is finally getting emotion out of her. Dusty Sharp is an enigma to Jos. He likes her presence, he enjoys flirting with her, and most importantly he is determined to draw out her sadness. Dusty isn't so straight or narrow himself as he too has his own past darkness and mistakes. What neither is prepared for is just how intimately close their past mistakes are or how maybe it was pure divine intervention that led them to another!Ok, so the plot seems awesome right? Yes it is, but the main problem for me what the really long time it took to develop. I liked by Jos and Dusty, but their tale was overshadowed by all the trivial roommate talk and unrelated read. I was dying for these two to just let go...unfortunately I was way past the 75% mark before I got my fix!I just wanted more...more character connection, more intimacy, and more angst...not so much bitchy characters, unrelated roomie tales, and a somewhat so-so OMG moment! full review to post on netgalley andhttps://www.thewindowseat13.com

    3.5-4 starsSetting: CollegeHEA: YesLove Triangle: NoSimilar to the first book you are introduced to a the main character Jos who has a dark secret and isn't willing to share it. And that is where the mystery lay for the entire book; you keep reading thinking What happened?! For the Love of GOD tell me! But she doesn't and you don't figure it out for quite a while. Talk about frustrating.What I loved about Jos is that similar to book 1 she was feisty, takes no sh!t and could definitely hold her own. I love a strong female lead and Jos had it locked down in that area.What I really liked about this book is it's accuracy about growing up and finding yourself. So many teenagers and adults in college start off doing what they believe will satisfy everyone around them, what is expected of them because they should and not what they want to do, what makes them happy. Sometimes it takes a tragic event to bring life into perspective. It is, in the end YOUR life, YOU have to do what makes YOU happy. Yes, think of the consequences. Yes, be responsible but by all means Carpe Diem... "YOLO"For a first reads there were practically no errors grammatically or structure wise.If you are looking for steamy hot action it's not in this book. There are a few rated R moments and only one scene at the end so don't go into it looking for that. It is more YA.---------------------------------------------------------------------12/24. review to come.12/2**SQUEEEEEE**Won a Copy!!!! Cannot wait to receive it!

    was so hoping it was going to follow Hunter and Taylor and everyone after they moved into the house. I loved those characters. My Favorite Mistake is one of my favorite college romance books...so I guess I was just hoping for more.I just finished FOR REAL by this same author and thought it was just ok...didn't like it nearly as much as MY FAVORITE MISTAKE...so I'm not sure what I'll think about this next book.

  • Quinn's Quippy Quotes

    A fresh start was irrelevant when the dark things in your past were always following you.So I was a little disappointed when I realized that I didn't know either main character leading into this book. But it didn't take long for me to get over my disappointment because I easily become absorbed into Jocelyn and Dusty's secrets. I loved how both characters are becoming a new person, trying to leave their past selves. What I wasn't expecting was for their pasts to be so interconnected. Joss has been keeping herself from living her life. After what happened a year ago, she didn't feel like she deserved happiness. But Dusty is a beacon of light in her life and whenever he's around, she can't help but step outside her carefully crafted shell.But here comes my favorite character: HANNAH!!! If you read this book, read it to meet Hannah!! Holy crap. I loved her. I loved her friendship with Joss. I want to see Hannah with a happy ending! Chelsea, help a girl out and make it happen, will yeah? So I will give you a fair warning. Renee, Joss's sister is a bit exhausting playing Mama Bear. It was a bit OTT in my opinion, but it didn't effect my focus on getting to the bottom of Joss and Dusty's issues. I really enjoy reading about a couple overcoming tragedy and carrying each other burden together. Dusty and Joss's relationship is a beautiful example of this and it made my heart soar.

    https://martinabookaholic.wordpress.c...Meine Gedanken:Wieder ein Buch, auf das ich mich gefreut habe, aber meinen Erwartungen leider nicht gerecht werden konnte. Vielleicht habe ich auch schon zu viele gute Bücher in diesem Genre gelesen? Ich weiß es nicht. :(Erzählt wird die Geschichte über Taylor, die gemeinsam mit zwei Freundinnen im Studentenwohnheim einzieht und da es eine 4-er Wohnung ist, warten sie auf ein Mädchen, das ihnen die Studentenverwaltung zuteilt. Doch als Taylor die Tür öffnet, steht plötzlich ein Typ vor ihr – klar, dass er rattenscharf ist, alles kann (Wunderwuzzi) und ständig sexuelle Anspielungen macht… und ja – sofort hat er ein Auge auf sie, unsere naive Hauptprota geworfen. Klar ist auch, dass er ausgerechnet mit ihr das Zimmer teilt und logisch, dass sie auf seine Annäherungsverssuche nicht einsteigt, aber dann ständig an ihn denkt, über ihn grübelt und ihn ach so heiß findet *gähn*Tut mir leid, aber es war mir hier leider alles viel zu einfach und auch vorhersehbar. Manchmal waren ja ganz nette Dialoge oder Szenen darin, aber diese wurden dann immer viel zu schnell wieder durch eine blöde Aktion oder Dialog von Taylor zunichte gemacht. Daher bin ich auch mit Taylor nicht klar gekommen und habe ein eher angespanntes Verhältnis zu ihr. Manchmal kam ich besser mit ihr zurecht, und manchmal nervte mich ihr Verhalten, ihr Denken nur noch, wenn sie zb. etwas sagte, aber dann etwas ganz anderes tat. Diese Widersprüchlichkeit war furchtbar. *grrr*Außerdem soll sie eigentlich 19 sein, aber ist so kindisch und kindlich und verhält sich als wäre sie 12, und dabei zählt auch nicht die Rechtfertigung, dass es daran liegt, was ihr als Kind passiert ist. Ne, das lass ich nicht gelten. Denn okay, es war kein Zuckerschlecken, aber wie das alles aufgebauscht wurde… nein – da war Hunters Schicksalsschlag viel, viel schlimmer und er ist auch ‚normal‘ geblieben und keine um sich schlagende Zicke, die ständig herum bitched. Generell fand ich ihre Aggressivität echt schlimm und wäre ein Junge so drauf, wäre das unverzeihlich. Aber wenn ein Mädchen zur Gewalt greift, wenn sie keine Lösung mehr parat hat – ist es okay? No way!Was mich auch gestört hat war, dass Hunter quasi der perfekte Typ, war, aber mit Biegen und Brechen als der bad-boy schlechthin dargestellt wurde. Da frage ich mich warum? Weil er Tattoos hatte oder über Sexualität offen reden kann (naja, er ist 19, was dann auch kein Wunder ist! ^^ *tz*)Er war einfach nur nett und perfekt, was wiederrum auch ein kleiner negativer Punkt war. Er kann alles! Er kann tanzen, er kann singen, er kann Gitarre spielen, er geht mit Kindern toll um, er ist für seine Freunde da, hurrt nicht herum – wie gesagt, er ist einfach schon zu perfekt und mir fehlten seine Ecken und Kanten, um ihn realer erscheinen zu lassen. Aber sonst war es zwischenzeitlich ganz nett, aber leider auch nicht mehr.PS: Aber ich habe jetzt schon den zweiten Teil der Reihe gelesen und dieser ist viel, viel besser!PPS: Die Rezi zum zweiten Teil kommt dann gleich nächste Woche ;)Beispiel-Auszüge:Statt Hunter wieder tätlich anzugreifen, nahm ich einen Schluck. Erst prickelte die Cola auf der Zunge, dann kam der Rum mit seinem dunklen, feurigen und warmen Geschmack hinterher. Er schmeckte großartig. Woher wusste Hunter, dass ich den Drink mögen würde.(oh oh, warum weiß Hunter nur, dass ein Mädchen einen süßen Trink mag… mh, … grübel grübel *naf*)„Klingt aufregend“, sagte er und entschied sich schließlich für den History Channel. Sah aus wie ein Doku-Marathon über Hitler. „Bis später“, sagte ich und ging mich fertigmachen. Er erwiderte noch nicht mal was auf meine Verabschiedung, als ich wenige Minuten später aus der Tür ging. Noch nie hatte ich jemanden getroffen, dessen Laune sich so schnell änderte wie seine. Er war schlimmer als das Wetter in Maine, das mit beängstigender Geschwindigkeit umschlagen konnte.(Äh, seit wann ist er launisch. das wurde vorher NIE dargestellt. Wenn das jemand ist, dann bitte Taylor… und das ständig!)

    Joscelyn has been shipped off by her mother to live with her sister Renee and her friends in Maine. Since starting college Jos has gone from being laser-focused on school and her future to partying with her friends. Nobody is more concerned by that than her sister Renee who now feels like she no longer knows the one sibling she is closest to. Living with her sister and her friends puts Jos under close scrutiny by all her housemates and a boy named Dusty keeps showing up at the house and around campus. It seems like she can't avoid him no matter where she is, but soon she doesn't want to. It's obvious to everyone that Jos is hiding something painful, something that has caused the changed in her and that keeps her closed off. Dusty, knowing what it's like to hide a dark and painful secret, tries to coax Jos out of her shell and in doing that they slowly fall in love. But will their love be strong enough when both of their secrets are revealed, secret that are connected to each other in ways neither Jos not Dusty realize.I really enjoyed My Sweetest Escape. It's a quick read and keeps you captivated by its story even if you don't exactly love the main character like I did. I liked Jos but I didn't love her. I felt for her and her pain, it was pretty obvious something serious happened to make her the way she is now. The whole time reading it I was burning with curiosity over Jos's past. I loved how there was a lot more to Jos than what was portrayed in the first couple of chapters, she's not actually just a party girl who lost her way. For the first time in her life she's actually enjoying life and pursuing new interests. But she's been critisized by so many people that she doesn't dare show the real Jos to anyone. But what started to bother me about her a quarter of the way into the book was that she never stood up for herself when she had all the right to do so. Sure, going from straight A student to a partier who on the outside doesn't care about anything would concern any family member, but she was being treated like she was a drug dealer with a serious alcohol problem. Renee especially seemed to overreact in my opinion and it was those moments when she was trying to control every aspect of Jos's life that pissed me off when Jos just went with it. I guess the root of my problem was how overbearing Renee was and Jos just letting her have her way all the time.I really like Dusty. I love his witty come backs and how he's a tough alpha guy like Hunter but doesn't really show it unless he has to. Because of that he's not as overbearing like some of the other male characters with the same personality traits. I love how patient and gentle he was with Jos, always taking care of her without her even knowing. But the real highlight of this book was Hannah. She's such a wonderful character, always upbeat with a repertoire of funny lines in spite of the way she's treated by people and the horrific thing that happened to her as a child. She never lets others put her down by long and she's an amazing friend to Jos. I enjoyed her and her spirit a lot.My Sweetest Escape is a great opportunity to get caught up on all the characters from the previous book and even though it's not as good as My Favorite Mistake, this book was still a very enjoyable, fun and quick read, with some angst and deep seeded issues that give the story depth.

    La mia recensione sul blog http://www.leggereromanticamente.com/...Vi siete innamorate di Hunter nel primo libro di questa romantica serie new adult? Allora vi farà piacere sapere che anche in questo secondo romanzo vedremo sia lui che altri personaggi già conosciuti in precedenza. Questo perchè la protagonista femminile Jos, verrà presa "in custodia" dalla sorella maggiore Renee, decisa a tutto, perfino a diventare odiosa e iperprotettiva, per rimettere in carreggiata la sorellina 19enne. Jos, infatti, da parecchi mesi ha abbandonato la strada della ragazza modello, dandosi alla pazza gioia e combinandone una dopo l'altra. La nostra bad girl viene perciò costretta a lasciare la propria università e trasferirsi nel Maine, dove la sorella Renee vive insieme a tutto il suo gruppo di amici nella casa di Hunter. Inizia quindi una convivenza dove la triste, depressa e scontrosa Jos sarà perennemente circondata da coppiette felici e innamorate. Ma il destino ha in serbo qualcosa di bello anche per lei: Dusty Sharp. Dopo un primo casuale incontro, Dusty e Jos sono destinati a vedersi continuamente: lui infatti è un amico di Hunter (nonché membro del suo stesso gruppo a cappella), e frequentano la stessa università. Dusty non solo è affascinante ed ha dei magnetici occhi verdi, ma è uno sfrontato ex bad boy che, dopo un passato di eccessi, sembra essersi messo sulla retta via. Cosa è successo a Jos molti mesi prima, cambiandola così drasticamente? Nella parte iniziale del libro mi sono fatta questa domanda più volte, era chiaro che c'era sotto qualcosa di serio che l'aveva sconvolta nel profondo. E' stato anche abbastanza facile capirne il motivo, visto che l'autrice stessa, man mano che si procede con la lettura, aggiunge indizi sul tragico evento. Probabilmente qualcuno prenderà in antipatia la protagonista femminile, soprattutto nella parte iniziale del romanzo dove si comporta sempre in maniera irritante e menefreghista, ma la poveretta ha le sue ragioni. A me è sembrata da subito una ragazza incompresa! Dusty invece mi è piaciuto molto fin dall’inizio (amo i bad boy redenti) e ho apprezzato molto la sua sincerità nel momento in cui i sentimenti prendono una certa piega. Anche se già dal primo incontro i due non restano indifferenti, la parte romantica e i loro sentimenti si sviluppano e crescono poco alla volta, per poi diventare uno l'appiglio dell'altra. Qualche scena sensuale c'è, ma abbastanza tranquilla...Mi è piaciuto molto il modo in cui l'autrice ha collegato le vite di Joss e Dusty, anche se avendo letto molti romanzi di questo genere la trama è abbastanza comune. Nulla di nuovo insomma, ma nonostante questo è una lettura che ho trovato scorrevole, a tratti ironica, in altri emozionante e anche molto romantica. Se non riuscite a resistere ad un nuovo romance new adult, è un libro che potrebbe piacervi!

    ** 2.5 stars ** I looked forward to reading My Sweetest Escape, but unfortunately, it didn't really work for me. I didn't hate it by any stretch, but I found the heroine to be extremely hard to get behind and the plot to be too slow-paced for my liking.This book had lots and lots of snark. Jos's voice is very similar to Taylor's from My Favorite Mistake. So if you like Taylor you'll likely enjoy Jos. If you wished Taylor would cut the shit, you'll probably wish the same of Jos. Though her life is in upheaval, the first two hundred pages is mostly mundane daily tasks, less than exciting conversations, and lots of inner dialogue. Jos also made multiple references about a "time before....everything." I really wanted less vague references and just let me know what happened and if it's worth putting up with her snark. Oh, and she was extremely prone to getting upset and running out of the room a lot, leaving someone to chase her down, and convince to come back out. Over and again.Jos's sister Renee is a complete ass. She was controlling, hateful, and plain rude. I mean, who tells Hunter to shut up in his own house? I've never understood why people let one person terrorize them and just boss everyone around. Renee is that person. And my gosh, I have a really hard time buying anyone taking that kind of bullying and nagging from their sibling, especially someone like Jos. It was just over the top. I did like Hunter and (a much nicer) Taylor, as well as Mase.Dusty was nice and sweet and yes, vague. Of course he used to be a man-whore, and of course he has secrets. The big secret though kind of fell flat for me, and I'm not sure why other than it was really convenient. Honestly, though, this poor guy got screamed at so much by Jos, and then Renee would threaten him without knowing what the hell she was talking about, that I felt pretty bad for him. Dusty, I hope she's worth the hearing damage, man. In the end, I can handle hard-to-like characters, I really can. But if that's the case, I need more plot or the promise of something great. My Sweetest Escape, though, didn't have a strong plot. It's a character-driven story with a few really hard to like characters. I will say the back-end of the book had more momentum. And while I wasn't on board with everything, I did think the ending was really sweet. Bottom line: If you liked the tone of My Favorite Mistake, and like a slower-paced story, My Sweetest Escape may work for you.

    2 stelle e mezzoOk, ok comincio subito col dire che il romanzo in realtà non è male. È scorrevole, è adatto alla lettura d’evasione, è a tratti simpatico e sicuramente sa intrattenere a suo modo il lettore, inoltre non c’è l’insta-love e anzi, la storia si prende(giustamente) il suo tempo per decollare… MA…MA penso di non aver mai disprezzato due protagonisti come Jos & Dusty! Mi sono rimasti indigesti proprio tanto! Ed è strano, perché solitamente se uno dei due fa cilecca, l’altro almeno mi risulta simpatico. Stavolta però no. Non li ho sopportati entrambi! Lei, Jocelyn, diciannovenne perennemente ammusata, che disprezza tutti, ed è vero gli ultimi mesi sono stati duri, ma… un po’ di contegno ragazza, un po’ di grinta! Troppo presa dalle paturnie della vita per accorgersi che il suo comportamento depresso sta distruggendo una delle persone che la ama di più: sua sorella maggiore. Jos mi è risultata ostica, scorbutica, odiosa fin da subito… ma forse sono io… boh!Lui, Dusty, il campione del sorrisone, con gli occhi più verdi del pianeta e la malsana abitudine di comparire alle spalle delle persone con passo felpato per fargli venire un infarto. Bello? Si. Tatuato? Si. Palestrato? Ovviamente! Ma stringi stringi non rimane nulla di lui, non emoziona come invece hanno saputo fare tanti altri Bad Boys… insomma gli occhi verdi non bastano per rimanere nei cuori dei lettori sappilo Dusty!La storia prende via con calma per poi finire in maniera dolce ma abbastanza banale, andiamo bastava che i due si parlassero con calma per risolvere ogni tipo di problema! Invece no, lei fugge, lui la insegue, “ti amo,ti odio” e bla bla bla!L’autrice avrebbe fatto meglio a puntare sulla storia di Hannah! Quella si che sarebbe stata interessante da raccontare!

    My Sweetest Escape es el segundo libro de la serie My Favorite Mistake, escrita por Chelsea M. Cameron.Hace mas de un año que lei el primer libro de esta saga, My Favorite Mistake, que narra la historia de Hunter y Taylor, cuando me entere de que habia un segundo libro, pense que seria la historia de uno de los amigos de Taylor o de Hunter, pero los protagonistas son Jos (hermana de Renee, una de las amigas de Taylor ) y Dusty, un amigo de Hunter.La lectura me gusto mucho, mas de lo que esperaba cuando lei la sinopsis, aunque en ocasiones la trama se me hizo un poco lenta y me desquiciaban los nervios por saber cual era el secreto de Jos.Tambien tuve bastantes dudas sobre que puntuacion ponerle pero finalmente decidi ponerle 4 estrellas porque me parecio que la historia era hermosa ( aunque un poco cliche ) ademas de estar muy bien escrita.Lo recomiendo, es una lectura muy agradable, realmente la disfrute!4 Estrellas!!

    Mi dispiace dare una sola stella ma a dire la verità, ho fatto una fatica immensa a finirlo.La prima metà del libro è stata di una noia incredibile e stavo davvero per metterlo giù, poi ho voluto dargli un'altra possibilità, ma ahimè non è andata meglio.La trama non mi ha presa per niente, i personaggi mi sono rimasti sconosciuti, non sono riuscita a entrare nel vivo della loro storia e a dirla tutta, non mi hanno lasciato nulla. Li ho trovati appena accennati, non debitamente sviluppati e sinceramente, anche poco credibili e banali.Il primo libro non mi aveva entusiasmata, ma almeno i personaggi li ho trovati un tantino più incisivi, qui ho trovato tutto appena accennato, dal loro passato, alla loro crescita fino alla consapevolezza e alla "rinascita". Per non parlare dello svilupparsi del loro sentimento... Tutto troppo poco descritto. Tutto troppo poco.

    Troppo simile al primo, cambiano i personaggi ma la sostanza è sempre uguale. Ho apprezzato di più il seguito della storia tra Hunter e Taylor messa in secondo piano! Resta comunque una lettura carina
