Predictable, a little corny and not a satisfying end to the series.

What a shame that a great book like Leaving Paradise got such a lackluster sequel. If a follow-up story had to happen, which I don't feel it did, it should have at least focused on Leah's role in everything. It is one of the most contrived, pointless books I've read in a while, which is a shame co...

There is this tiny bit of common sense I left behind before reading this book- if you didn't like the first book don't bother with the sequel. It will probably be shitty too. And God, I tried to like this book, I really did. Here's the book in short- Maggie's an idiot, Caleb's a d-bag and Simon Elke...

Cute follow up.very enjoyable like all of Elkeles' books, but definitely not my favorite. Caleb was a little too flip floppy for me and he reminded me too much of Carlos in The Perfect Chemistry series.

I'm not going to lie. After the ending of the first book, I wanted to slap Caleb upside the head. I understand he has some things he needs to work out and I'm glad that he gets stuck doing the same summer trip as Maggie. And I also want to through out there that I loved Damon. He was just awesome. C...

In this book we continue to read about Caleb and Maggie's story that started in Leaving Paradise. This books is really an emotional roller coaster. It just seems like the two companions can't seem to get it right. They love each other, yet they still continue to hurt each other. In my mind I don't ...

Well, it wasn't bad, but the romance wasn't enough in my opinion.Maggie and Caleb were fighting almost all the time but the good moments were rally good moments.And the book teaches a lot about the right decisions and taking responsibility.And all the kids they helped while they were traveling for f...

Aw! such a great book, Simone Elkeles never disappoint me in this second book of leaving paradise even though the Rules of Attraction is more interesting and "Ill never forget novel" that she ever wrote(plus the Perfect Chemistry). I read this book and ROA at a same time, after I read a chapter in ...
