I really enjoyed My Favourite Mistake so I had high hopes for this sequel. Unfortunately, this book was just okay. I was not blown away by this story. It had so much potential. This book moved at a snails pace and I felt like nothing really exciting happened. Jos Archer used to be the perfect girl, perfect grades, bright future; it was all mapped out for her until it wasn't. When an event has her spiraling out of control her sister, Renee steps in. In the first book, we met Jos's Sister Renee & I really liked her BUT in this book she was acting more like a strict mother rather than a concerned big sister! She is forced to leave her college in New Hampshire to move in with Renee and the gang (Taylor, Hunter, Paul, Mace, Renee and Darah) in Maine and transfer schools. This way Renee can keep a close eye on her sister and hopefully figure out what triggered her sudden change. Most of the book Jos acted like a moody emo teenager but it was just a defense mechanism to try to keep people away. Sometimes it seemed a bit over the top & started to get on my nerves. Jos isn't ready to let anyone in or expose her secret. She soon begins to realize that it isn't as easy as it seemed especially when Dusty Sharp enters her life. He's always around & doesn't appear to be in any hurry to leave. Dusty has his own past that left him a changed man, but his change allowed him to escape his own destruction. He’s finally in a better place, making the right choices and finding it difficult to stay away from the one girl he should not want. The story was a slow starter for me, it seemed to take forever to get to the point where Dusty and Jos were ready to admit their attraction and even longer to discover what her secret was. If you are looking for steamy hot action it's not in this book. There are a few rated R moments but only towards the end. It is more of a YA story. This was a nice attempt at a sweet coming of age romance but I just wanted more...more character connection, more intimacy, and more angst...not so much bitchy characters!
