I am so in love with this series I though book one was good but book two is Better, Funnier, more twisted and gripping I did not want to put this down. This is the kind of book that makes you happy, smile from ear to ear, smile mischievously and laugh do hard you think you will pass out from lack of air.

I have never been so fascinated by a book character as much as I do Xander the guy does something to me. I freaking adore Marisa she really comes into her own in this book she is do bad ass at

I dont even know what to make of this series, but im saying that in a good way! I read 'always wanted' in august and i've just finished 'wanted always' today, reading it in less than 24hours.

Okay so first of i like marisa her character is very different to most girls around that age I've read about, you see during this book the way she matures and learns to fend for herself. Some of the things she does are so outrageous and hilarious i cant even describe!

Xander, Xander, Xander... What do i
Honestly I have no idea where to start with this review so I will give you my thoughts on the characters and hopefully that helps. much stronger in this book than in the first book. She is realizing her worth and telling ppl just what she thinks. Especially her itch of a mother (who I can't stand) who I wish I could slap. I'm glad she decided that she needed a grown up job and is gonna work as Xander's personal assistant cause working at the local ice cream parlor wasn't working.

I read Always Wanted and I must admit I was intrigued it wasn't what I expected and yes I wanted more, I downloaded the sample of this book and it wasn't what I expected again but telling myself it was only 1.24 I decided to go for it, mistake, while these characters may have been quirky and interesting in the short book here they're just annoying. One of the main problems for me was that I just didn't like any of them, the only one that seemed in any way normal was Liam and I'm not even sure ...more

I do have to admit I did like this better than the first one. It was funny when Marisa finally learned how to stick up for herself. It made me laugh at the garden party. I'm actually kind of hoping there is a third book because so many things were left unsaid I want to know who Marisa ends up with.

Oh god! This book is very interesting? However, I could not put it down! Impatiently waiting for book 3 to be released!

Okay, see, here's the thing. The minute I say something like "I don't squee" or "I don't fangirl" or "I don't do gifs", I find myself doing those things not long after. I should have known better when I said "I don't rate with half stars". Look up! Do you see what I've done? There are some books that just turn me into a big "liar, liar, pants on fire". This one is latest to join that club.

I was just torn. I liked this book, but I thought it was better than 3

Overall I enjoyed this book. However-and Sarah please don't hate me for this-the first half was a little slow. There just didn't seem to be a lot happening at first and it didn't flow as well for me. We got to know the main character more, but it was a little much on her feelings. That said, the rest of this book was great.

I loved Demetria, she so needs to be hospitalized and it's great. It was fun when Marisa learned how easily manipulated she can be because of the head case she is.

SO funny. If this doesn't make you laugh, I don't know what will.
I'm glad this story plays out this way. I love the brother and I really hope the next one is eve better. I love that the female lead is way stronger then she was in the first book. I laughs so much with the comments she makes to that beats mother telling her she's her daughters lesbian lover. SO fricken funny!!!
She's still getting played by Xander but now its a little different. Looking forward to the next..
Please, please, let

This book was hilarious. Funnier than Always Wanted. Marisa is kick ass and I love her character. I can't wait to continue this story.
If only I can find where the next book is available.

A completely bonkers read. Xander has only got better as a character, makes me snort with laughter pretty much every time he pops up in the story. Marisa's life just seems to be spiralling out of control in this book.

This is a cute series. Rich, gorgeous twin brothers have nothing in common but a girl. A poor with Mommy issues.

Easy read, not the greatest story line, but it has you wanting to find out what happens, It ends suddenly that you have to read the next one
