Why I picked it up: I read the first in the series and am curious enough to want to know what happens.

Melody and Harmony are twins that have been raised separately and have only recently been reunited. They are currently extremely famous for both being pregnant with twins and the same due date. This picks up about 7 ½ months after Bumped (abruptly) ends.

I thought it was okay. I didn't go back and reread Bumped, so there were a few things I had to readjust to. Some things seemed really obvious. Other plot elements were pretty far-fetched. Like the first book, I thought the short chapters alternating from the sisters didn't let you get inside their heads enough, though I did care about what happened to them. The social commentary is interesting. Very interesting. With all the trilogies out there these days, it was nice to have a two-book series. Probably 2.5 stars, but I'll bump it up (yay use of bump!) because overall it was enjoyable.

Contains: lots of made up words pertaining to sex
