“I think when love sneaks up on you, when it grabs onto you when you least expect it, maybe that's more of a sign that it's real. That it's meant to be and nothing could stop the two of you from falling for each other.”
This second installment tells us the story of Adrian (Remember him? Colt’s best friend?) and Laney.
Everyone thinks that the only thinks Adrian likes is partying and smoking drugs. What nobody knows is that he neither like the partying nor the drugs. For moments he just wants to stay completely numb and forget.
He doesn’t want to feel… because feeling implies suffering.
He is broken by a lost in his past and he just wants to get through the day without being haunted by it.
Laney is also broken by her past. The difference is that she copes with it by trying to save everyone around her, since she can’t save the only who really matters: herself.
So when she and Adrian meet, she wants to save him and he doesn’t want to be saved.
But their past is entwined more than he imagines and after Laney enter his life, he will be forced to remember things he don’t want to deal with and maybe realize that in order to heal, we have to bleed first.
Their romance was really good to see.
I think I liked this book even more than the first one. Although they pissed me off in one time or another, their connection felt very real and the development of the story was pretty good.
The supportive characters were also very good and it was great to see more of Chey and Colt and the bond between all of them.
Definitely a series that you shouldn’t miss out on. :)
