This follow up to her first book is miles ahead in terms of writing, which was my biggest problem with the first book. So I appreciated this so much more.
However, the constant back and forth, running away got on my nerves. How many times do you have to be ignored and screwed over before you have enough? I want to like Logan so much, but I'm left unsatisfied. As for Amanda, I loved her, and I think she did a lot of growing.
And I'm sorry, but the amount of crap these characters have to deal with sometimes gets outlandish. Like, do any of these characters have a normal, stable life that doesn't have any kind of crazy attached to it?
While this review makes it seem like I didn't like this book, I actually did. I want to see where these two crazy kids go from the abrupt ending we get.(less)

I just can't. This book made me squirm in a bad way. Not at all my idea of a romance. Especially given the excerpt of a novella about Nick in the back of the book... that happens mere months before he reunites with the "love of his life" Eyeroll. Just blech.(less)

I'm not going to do a run through on this because its pretty much all summarized in the actual book summary. I just felt the need to put my thoughts about it here because I'm kind of pissed off.
Unlike a lot of people, I liked Mia. I felt she was justified in pursuing something with her high school crush, Noah. She got messed over by her husband, and when she thinks she can take him back he goes on a month long business trip. She was a mother to two little girls and needed to find herself. She didn't heat on her vows, she just tried to work things out her own way.
Declan, however is who I didn't like. Not only did he cheat on Mia (semantics aside) he actually did it in a premeditated way. He didn't just hook up with this woman when he first meets her over alcohol. He actually takes her room key and meets her the next day... after lying to his wife about having to stay an extra day. How come this is never brought up? That's worse because he actually planned it. Maybe he didn't really know what would happen, but he knew it wasn't anything a faithful husband would do. And the fact that he felt like it was okay was just wrong. When your wife, the mother of your children, is in a bit of a slump from taking care of your two small children, you don't act selfish and make everything about you.
And the fact that it all wraps up so neatly was also ridiculous. Declan sings her a song at a bar and its all good? Yeah, no thank you.
I actually liked the majority of this book because I liked Mia. But I can't get on board with how it ended. I would read something by this author, this just didn't work for me.(less)
