First, a letter to the person who made me read this book (view spoiler)

I really should not have read this book. The first one really infuriated me (and you can check with my status updates), and this one was no different.

I absolutely adore Ramsey, and I know he had a past, but really, ignorance is bliss. I hated that this book attempted to make him look bad. Who cares? He was a bad boy who changed for the girl he loved. Totally swoon-worthy. Now stop tempering with my thoughts.

And Lexi - what do I say about her other than, "How stupid can she be?!?" I don't think you ever totally get over your first love, and Jack will always be out of reach for her. And she KNEW that, but she just couldn't help herself, and she ALWAYS managed to get herself in situations where she ended up alone with him. Yes, some of it, like Ramsey begging her to go to the wedding, was not her fault, but others, like when they were trying to escape Mr. Bridges, was just pure stupidity on her part.

With Ramsey? I understand that Lexi has been hurt by Jack in the past, and I'm surprised she's willing to jump into a relationship so fast. True, it was Ramsey who said he couldn't do the casual thing anymore, but still, Lexi was not totally blind that Ramsey had a past. But I was so tired of her whiny "he's a player" thoughts and her quickness to jump down his throat at every single thing that comes up - especially considering the sources these stories are coming from.

So to Lexi: Shut the hell up. And quit digging. You KNOW the guy has a past, and nothing good will EVER come out of it. Ramsey knew you had a past with Jack, and he forgave you for everything. Why can't you do the same for him? And cut the crap with the whole "because he lied to me" excuse. What exactly did you expect? If you can't see how much he has changed for you and how much he is doing for you, then you don't deserve him anyway.

I don't want to rant anymore. My head hurts from all the drama in this book. I can't take any more.

message 24: by Dani (new) - rated it 3 stars

Dani what I still don't understand is why Mel is making you read this when she didn't even like the first book? is she trying to torture you for some reason? I think she likes that :P

She wants to know "what happens next." I have no interest in what happens next, but she wouldn't let me say no.


message 26: by Lex (new) - rated it 3 stars

Lex Well... I'll probably scream at her too. I mean Lexi. :P WE could all do it together. And I'll feel like we're screaming at myself. LOL. :D

message 35: by Lex (new) - rated it 3 stars

Lex I wish Ramsey man up a bit and just stop Lexi from being swoon by Jack when they met again. :( Like, when Jack hugged her, Ramsey should've snatched Lexi away. Sigh. And damn this girl. Totally smitten again. :(

I also told K, I totally imagine Ramsey as Jensen :))) hehe


Ellie I was so frustrated with the first book that I almost gave it up. Now I am waiting for this one and hope that things will finally get better both for Lexi and for me ;)


message 38: by Lex (new) - rated it 3 stars

Lex Hi Elena, well, good luck with that. LOL. I like the second book better than the first. Except whenever Jack is around Lexi. I skipped the definitions of Jack's body and reactions to Lexi. Cause it just made me frustrated as hell and cuss a lot.


message 39: by Katy (new) - rated it 2 stars

Katy @Elena - Yes, that first book INFURIATED me. I didn't even want to touch this one, and the ONLY reason I'm reading this one is because someone guilted me in supporting her through her suffering because she just HAS to know what happens next.
