Publisher's Summary

The Past Will Always Find You.
Jos Archer was the girl with the perfect life - until the night it all came crashing down around her. Now, nine months later, she still hasn’t begun to pick up the pieces. Even transferring to a new college and living under the watchful eye of her older sister, Renee, isn’t enough to help her feel normal again.
And then she meets Dusty Sharp. For reasons Jos can’t begin to fathom, the newly reformed campus bad boy seems determined to draw her out of her shell. And if she’s not careful, his knowing green eyes and wicked smile will make her feel things she’s no longer sure she deserves.
But even as Dusty coaxes Jos to open up about the past, he’s hiding secrets of his own. Secrets about the night her old life fell apart. When the truth is finally revealed, will it bring them closer together - or tear them apart for good?

It was okay but not as good as the the 1st book

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!

so long and boring

Would you try another book from Chelsea M. Cameron and/or Kate Rudd?

I don't think so (Chelsea)but Kate yes

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I don't even know how many chapters but still at chapter 20 still don't know what happened

Have you listened to any of Kate Rudd’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No I haven't but I will listen to her again.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Pissed off 10hours of nothing
