Received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
First, I just want to get this out of my chest "Not another cliffy! Nooooo!" There, I said it.
This picked up where it ended on the first book. Hope betrayed Jake and she's wallowing and (for me) over thinking it.
She's still the funny, weird and endearing girl from the firs book. She's still rockin' the Hello Kitty stuff.
She's pining over Jake and I just wish they had more interaction than just the last scene of the book. Then she got herself into some of the weirdest situations that, for me, lacks the back up story it needs. Like [when Jake's sister and mother confronted her. I mean I didn't get why they did that? Jake is old enough and strong enough to fight his own battles. Then her mother came just for it to end by Hope walking out on them. I didn't get that. Sorry.
Well I'm glad we got his POV in this book! I love dual POVs! Well, we didn't see much of him except on those rare occasions where he is "stalking" Hope which is weird but made me awww... (please don't judge me) because he cant stay away from her.
Then we met the new, sexy, genius neighbor!
In the beginning I'm not sure how he will play a part in Hope's life but he's arrogantly sweet, Mother Theresa-like neighbor. I liked him! I wish I have a neighbor just like him!!! He can bake! Oh good heavens! Give me some Raff!!!
The most entertaining part of this read didn't come until the last few chapters and I wish there was more of that all throughout the book. I got bored on the first 2/3 of the book. But I'm still looking forward to the last part of Hope's story!
