Is there some kind of rule that say the second book has to be an emotional roller coaster?
This one was filled with drama and major emotions. Grace saved Daniel. Thinking everything was okay, things all of the sudden began to change. Daniel becomes more distant leaving a wide open space for a new boy to come in. Grace is lonely and that is bad. Grace begins to lies and falls into a trap that she doesn’t see.
First off, major emotions. Poor Grace. After all that she has done, Daniel goes and treats her badly. He stops answering calls, stood her up on dates, and just become different. Grace becomes agitated. She is hurt a lot and let her emotions play her. Instead of doing rational things, she allows her emotions to over run and is always putting herself in danger. I was glad for one that she wanted to be strong, that she can prove that she didn’t need Daniel. But I felt like Grace only responded that way because of Daniel. His fault.
Daniel leaves for the same reason all guys leave in the second book. They don’t want to hurt the girl, they are better off without them, blah, blah, freaking blah. Seriously, I’m so over this plot. Daniel is dumb and need to get his head out of his butt.
Even though the plot is overplayed, I still enjoyed it. The writing and the way the emotions played out was good. The characters were brought to life as the emotions flowed freely through her writing. The new boy in the book made for a great change. He certainly was cute and an eye opener for Grace. Although I am sad that it had to end badly. The secrets in this book did have me gasping. I couldn’t believe the things that were happening. I was just taken back and WOWed.
As I said before I didn’t really like the plot between Grace and Daniel. But the rest of the book was good. The family betrayal I had not seen and I admit I was even hurt by it. It was shocking and well….it was good.
