I really liked the second book in this series. The characters were well developed and entertaining. The plot was lively and flowed really well. I was never bored. The conflict was easily relatable and not far-fetched so that I was pulled along for the ride right alongside the two main characters. Their story was vibrant, passionate, sad and hopeful, sweet and intense, and just plain wonderful. The first one was good, but this one was awesome. If you haven’t read book one, you can actually pick up this one and read without too much trouble. It deals with the same family and where the first one ends, but the two characters and their story stand on their own and is a great stand alone as well as part of a series.
