***THIS BOOK WAS GIVEN TO ME IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
Labelled a nerd for most of high school, Livi sees her first year of university as a chance to redefine herself. She can finally enter the popular crowd and maybe even land herself a super hot boyfriend. But Livi’s about to discover that the price of popularity may be more than she’s willing to pay, and that what—and who—she wants most has always been right in front of her
I have read both of the author’s previous books in this series and loved them, however, I think that I may love this one just a bit more (and possibly the next one even more, but hey, what can I say other than they are amazing). The author’s words just flow and the story line is one that I think almost anyone can relate to. I feel like the author’s description of both the characters and the setting make the reader feel as if they are a part of the book. You can easily picture the college campus, the moldy bathroom and even the vibe of the music from the cafe as you are taken away to Cape Town with your friends, Livi and Adam, Gross Cousin Luke and even Jackson. While you are with them you feel yourself wondering when Alivia and Adam will figure things out, when she will realize that there is no reason to change and at times you will even feel the anger that is being played out. The story has a steady flow, the banter between characters is something that you could hear anywhere and the relationships that evolve, develop and fall apart really strike a chord with the reader.
This could be read as a stand alone story, but to really appreciate the writing, characters and settings I would recommend picking up the other 2 stories that go along with this one. It is like spending time with old friends that you haven’t seen in a few weeks as this book continues with their lives. I can’t wait until the old gang (Livi, Adam, Sarah & Logan) get back together in one book to see/read their friendship as it evolves (hint, hint Rachel). So, the other important things in the story, the writer does come from another country so some words are spelled differently or referred to in a different manor, but it does not detract from the story, nor is the reader confused by it in any way. The author does a great job of making sure the reader can understand and appreciate the story no matter where they are. I love how the author can bring it all together for everyone to enjoy.
This is a must read series for any and all book lovers, especially if you enjoy a realistic story that doesn’t involve a rich bachelor chasing after a girl, or characters being tied up to enjoy themselves. This author brings you a realistic story, characters and situations that people of any age can enjoy and appreciate. Make sure you add this to your TBR list as well as the previous books so that you don’t miss out on some amazing books. Already looking forward to book 3 in the series, I hope that the author doesn’t make the reader wait too long!
