So that’s what happened at prom. These two are learning and growing but have a long ways to go. Also I didn’t know there was going to be a third book so we wait to see if these two can finally communicate or if it’s hopeless.

I voluntarily read an ARC of this book. A is for Alpha B is for Books.

"Sometimes, soul mates take time to realize it's love. And sometimes, soul mates need to be lost in order to be found."

After finishing TToU I was so glad I could start with TStU early. Only to realize at the end, I yet have still to wait until I get to know what life has in store for AJ and Evan.

Okay so I have to start off with saying I might have sent the author a bunch of messages in the middle of the night. I was kinda worked up about this book so I'm not even sorry. I was angry typing!!!

This book is told in past and present tense and we get both POVs. We finally get to know what caused AJ's decision at the end of book 1. By 4% my chest was hurting. By 20% I was anxious. By 40% I was a mess. I kinda wanted to junk punch Evan at points and wanted to hug AJ for most of the book.

I was so rooting for Evan after The Theory of Unrequited, but to be honest, I'm not sure where I stand on the two of them anymore. This is such a great young adult/new adult book.

Oh my poor defenseless heart!

Have you ever craved the answers? Like you needed them so much you begged the author for the next book? So much need, longing, and love for two characters that you twitched to have the answers?

But let me ask you, when you were desperate and needy for those answers did you fear the results? Because I found once The Solution to Unrequited hit my kindle I actually backed away in fear! Legit, heart clenching fear. I was terrified of The Solution to Unrequited. And even h
I was anticipating this book for a long time! I had read The Theory of Unrequited and absolutely loved it! I couldn’t wait to read the second book mainly since the first book ends with a cliffhanger!! The second one lived up to the first one. We finally find out what happened at prom and it’s a heartbreaker. Evan was very selfish in high school and took advantage of his best friend’s feelings. But to be fair AJ never really told him outright about her feelings. She would hint at them but like a ...more
2.5 stars

I liked this second book in this series less than I did the first, but I admit I'm still curious to see how the story will unfold on the third book.

In my opinion the heroine got even more wishy-washy. Every she was justified to feel just seemed to disappear and suddenly I felt like for her she was also at fault for how her best friend treated her before.

I was hoping to see some growth in her, because on the first book I thought she was very immature. But no, she seemed to got worse.

I received an ARC of this book from the author and I voluntarily reviewed it. Thank you Len Webster!

This book helped me fall for Evan. Not fully and completely though. Fight me, I’m still #TeamConnecticut. The feels in this book were amazing and I loved the science aspect of it yet again.

Eight Protons. Eight Neutrons.

Man that’s precious.

We learn more about Evan and AJ’s past, and I cannot wait to see what happens when she gets back to Duke.

The back and forth between Evan and AJ does get tiring

You can’t help but fall in love even more with AJ and Evan. I need more AJ and Evan in my life. This book keeps giving you all the feels. I can’t deny a piece of my heart is #TeamConneticut but I believe in soulmates. We will see what happens!!!

Len Webster beautifully captured a story of unrequited love and had my heart in my throat as I read the continued story of AJ and Evan! God, the angst and love and heartbreak shattered me. Her writing is amazing and the past and present flowed together seamlessly. Did I want to throat punch Evan? Yes!!! But in the end I remembered that they’re still young and have so much to learn. I’m addicted to this series and can’t wait for more!!! Loved it!!! ❤❤ ...more

I am so invested in both the story and characters of Evan and AJ so much so that at times I found myself having to remind myself to breathe.

To be honest both of them frustrated me so much, I was screaming at them on my head to just talk to each other but then I remembered their ages. Of the two I found myself questioning Evan's feelings for AJ the most. Does he really love her ? Does he even know what love is? I hated how as we saw in book one he took her so much for granted, how selfish he was.

To the point where you no longer recognized yourself because you've given away everything to sustain a one sided love affair?

At what point do you break? At what point do you reach bottom and finally begin to dig yourself out of the hole you've been living in?

I'm flabbergasted right now with this series!

I didn't lie when I finished The Theory of Unrequited and said I was going to dive in to The Solution to Unrequited because that's exactly what I did.

The story continues with Evan and AJ. She has decided to attend a different college to get away from the one person who has hurt her the most in a way that she doesn't think she will ever feel.

In the meantime, Evan is going crazy trying to find out which college AJ has decided to go without telling him.

One unforgivingly memorable night, when things were finally going to go perfectly for AJ, it all had gone most terribly wrong, and she was never the same after that.

This continuation of the Science of Unrequited series is really good! Len Webster once again takes us on a journey of young love and all the crazy and complicated that comes with it. We pick up right where we left off with Book One and I was completely engaged from the very first page.

We get alternating POVs once again as well as past and present so that now we get the whole story as to why Evan hurt AJ so badly back in high school. The angst, the longing, the emotions are sky high as AJ and Eva

"The hardest part of being in love with someone is finding a silver lining in the pain you endure for them."

I couldn't put this book down!

I was so eager to see what AJ would decide about Evan and her college plans that I ignored everything else just so I could finish this book. I almost thought I would have to die of frustration at one point, but then Len Webster restored my faith and I was able to breathe normally again for some time.

Wow – I was really looking forward to this second book and I had my opinions firmly in but I knew there was a chance that this book would end up swaying how I felt about certain characters, especially Evan.

I really liked AJ and I loved that she finally began living life for herself and not putting others in front of what she had to do with her life. I loved the friendships she began to form, especially with Savannah and I was curious to see if anything was going to happen with Logan. Yet AJ stil

I’m so unsure on this book, I feel like I’m on some weird balance board and I don’t know if I just liked it or if it was just ok. I’m struggling with Evan. I’m almost at the point where I think they both need a break from each other and need to see the world and explore. They’re so young and I adore AJ. She’s a good girl and is totally gaga over Evan… I’m just not sure he’s ready for her yet. Or even understands the feels yet.

Eight Protons.
Eight Neutrons.

This has come up to be my favourite confessions of all times.

TSoU is a slow paced sequel to TToU. The story doesn't move forward much, but rather deals with the emotional turmoil.

I truly love Len Webster's writing. It is addictive.

BUT, the story was a bit.... monotonous.

Yet, it is amazing how her writing manages to invoke so many emotions, all at once. At one moment I am sitting, almost hating Evan for not realising it sooner. But in the next, I am forgiving him

Sweet story

If the details get you stuck, you won’t love this book. Len is an Australian author writing about a romance in America so lots of the details are just wrong...geography, processes for college, time...I get stuck on those a lot. This happens a lot when a non-American writes an American love story. It’s rare they get the small details right. The only author I’ve ever read that seems to make it work well is Jay McLean. The story is sweet. I like the character and the flip flop of past an

This book picks up where the first book ended. Evan has found A.J. and wants to fix their relationship. While I liked how they discussed what went wrong and why, I still get that A.J. was more to blame for everything. He was wrong for doing what he did on prom night, but to but talk to your best friend and then leave him waiting for you, not to mention he basically lost her parents as well, was horrible.

If there is one thing this author can deliver it’s the freaking feels!

I was emotionally invested and on the edge of my seat because I wasn’t sure how Evan and Alex reuniting would go.
