As a fan of the first book, I had high expectations for this one. I think this book was decent, not as good as the first one. I don't think it was suffering the "middle book" syndrome, but I felt like this book lacked something. I can't name it, but there was definitely something missing.
Clara is stuck between Christian and Tucker. *Sigh* We have a love triangle among us. I don't like love triangles. Especially ones where you like both of the love interests. I love Tucker. Hands down, my all time favourite book boyfriend. But I think I'm starting to warm up to Christian. I didn't like him at all in the first book when he ditched Clara at the dance so that he could escort his ex home. That was a bad move, but that's okay, because that's when Tucker saved the day and swept her off her feet. In this book, you get more of Christian. There's so much more depth to him and you begin to question "who do you think is perfect for Clara?" For now, I don't know whose team I'm rooting on.
I can't wait for the final book. I'm desperate to see who she will choose. Hopefully it will be Tucker. *Fingers crossed*
