Summary from Goodreads:
He had held a secret that destroyed her world.
Everything she had known was no longer true.
Blaire couldn’t stop loving him but she knew she could never forgive him.
Now, she was back home and learning to live again. Moving on with life… until something happened to send her world spinning once again.
What do you do when the one person you can never trust again is the one that you need to trust so desperately?
You lie, hide, avoid, and pray that your sins never find you out.
The saga continues, but with more twists and turns to keep your head reeling for weeks. This was a very anticipated book for me. I made sure I was uninterrupted, calm, and open-minded before I started this one and trust me, you really need to be as this story is not like many others in the way it’s written, carried out, and concluded!! Of course there’s still a ton of angst going on with everybody’s past, present, and future, however, Blaire seems to be coming to terms with what life had dealt her and she seems to be making more rational decisions in this second installment!
Now… bring on Rush. He’s still as hot as ever, but things have changed. He’s starts out more crabbier than ever, but with good cause. After about half the book I could see him altering, making nice with others and I have no doubt it was attributed to one person. I’m just sad it wasn’t me..LOL! Seriously, how could anyone be pleasant or cheerful when you’ve got the bitch from hell for a sister taking jabs at you and the one you love?? Blaire on the other hand held strong a little longer than I wanted her to. I was getting more upset by the minute learning that others knew about her circumstances way before Rush did and she still chose to wait to tell him anything! That being said… I love Blaire with all my heart, and if I were going to be a fictional character, it would be Blaire. She’s strong, smart, sexy, and all around a good girl! Glad to see the rest of the crew coming back full force, love me some Bethy, Jace, and Woods, the story would be just soso without them. Now Nan, Georgianna, and Abe were not my favorite characters, they added tons of turmoil to the story!
At 188 (kindle version) I blew right through this book in less than a day. I never once felt like I needed to skip or skim, in fact I felt like I hung on every word! This is my second Abbi Glines book and your can bet your bottom dollar I’ll be back to read more of her! The way this book ended, with no epilogue mind you, I feel like there’s got to be more to this story!!! If not Rush and Blaire’s story, then maybe Bethy and Jace, or Woods and someone else… who knows… but I feel like I sincerely needed to see just a little glimpse into the future of Rush and Blaire.
