2 Disappointing Stars

I will start by saying I love Samantha Young, and have enjoyed everyone of her books from the Dublin St series, but I found this one seriously lacking.


I can't even begin to tell you where this one starts out, because I was confused as shit. I actually went back and reread the last chapter of Into to the Deep. I seriously was like what the fuck happened, I missed something huge.


False alarm, I didn't miss anything. This book just switches time frame every chapter. So we start like 5-6 months after the end of Into the Deep. Jake and Charley have broken up because something horrible has happened. Her mother is visiting a cemetery, her father won't talk to her, and she misses her sister. You may think Spoiler no this happens within the first 2% of the book.

Ms. Young then takes you on a roller coaster of together not together, every few pages.


So the whole book I am basically trying to solve a mystery - it was Ms. Plum, in the conservatory, with a revolver. I am not down with some Agatha Christie shit.


I feel like I am ripping this book a part so I will throw out some positives: Jake, Beck and Claudia, The Stolen guys, oh yeah and Jake.

There was some hot sex, but again I had no idea when things were going to go down because the book just didn't flow at all. They can't all be winners and I am sure some will love it, it just wasn't for me.
