Book Overview

In the follow-up to Abbi Glines’s #1 New York Times bestsellerUntil Friday Night—which bestselling author Kami Garcia called “tender, honest, and achingly real”—three teens from a small southern town are stuck in a dramatic love triangle.

Willa can’t erase the bad decisions of her past that led her down the path she’s on now. But she can fight for forgiveness from her family. And she can protect herself by refusing to let anyone else get close to her.

High school quarterback and town golden boy Brady used to be the best of friends with Willa—she even had a crush on him when they were kids. But that’s all changed now: her life choices have made her a different person from the girl he used to know.

Gunner used to be friends with Willa and Brady, too. He too is larger than life and a high school football star—not to mention that his family basically owns the town of Lawton. He loves his life, and doesn’t care about anyone except himself. But Willa is the exception—and he understands the girl she’s become in a way no one else can.

As secrets come to light and hearts are broken, these former childhood friends must face the truth about growing up and falling in love…even if it means losing each other forever.

My Review

Reading this book was solely for compliance purposes. I found the second book of this series, found out that it is about to come out this month and I kind of didn't want to read the next installment before I read this one. Now I have done the skipping phase before. There were times I've read the third book without even opening the first or second book. I only read the books that has the description that would suck me in. It really doesn't matter to me who the author is, If the description did not appeal to me, I'm not reading the book.

I've read some of Abbi Glines' book before. The rosemary and sea breeze series in particular and some others but in those series I failed to read the rest of the installment. I stopped at some point because the story line became kind of familiar and the characters kind of become similar. It was like the installments of the series were just written for the sake of each character to have a story and even though I know the writing would be good I still opted to not read the rest. I don't really know why I'm surprised at all when I finished reading this book. After all, Abbi always get my sweet young heart swoon every time and this book in particular, I can't help but say I've fallen. I forgot how great and sweet and oh so lovable YA romance could be.

The book is good. West and Maggie were good. There were a lot of cute moments that was enough for me to feel something. But, once again, the book felt familiar. I also found so many things that didn't sit well with me. It was cute how West could just lean on to Maggie for support but the way I see it, it is indeed some kind of an obsession. Also, the way West is coping and how he is just an asshole was a little annoying to me because then he would get protective which is not on the right time. Then there's Maggie. I need more from her, not just some background story. I want to be able to see her because she is still transparent to me. The way her story was told felt like there was something missing. I'm perfectly partial to the book and I feel like the rating I'm giving it is accurate. I can't wait to actually read the next installment. I'm waiting on it.
