I REALLY (5star) liked the first book of this series (Off Campus) and was eagerly looking forward to hearing another book by Amy Jo Cousins. Unfortunately Nothing like Paris doesn't live up to the quality of the 1st book.
The main character Jack, the "nemesis" from book 1, is written in such a way that you don't feel any real interest/sympathy/liking for him until 3/4 of the book is over. His ex Mike is likable enough, but the familiarity of the two & chemistry between them falls flat. And not that it ultimately matters, but who thought that cover was a good idea?!
In Off Campus, All the characters, even Jack, had more depth & chemistry. The reader wants to stay w/ the story even when they characters are doing something stupid. w/ Nothing like Paris, I kept waiting for the story to really get started until finally I was waiting for it to end.
Because Off Campus is excellent, I will hope Nothing like Paris was just a fluke & try more of the Bend or Break series when its available, but even Cooper North's strong narration didn't save this installment for me.
