Oh how I do love the novels within this series. This novel especially is just too good for words, but I’ll say them anyways. This was probably my favorite novel in this whole series so far. It just had so much going for it that I could hardly put it down. The only reason that I did was because I had to work the next day. Otherwise, I would have been done with it within hours. Jamie McGuire knows exactly what we want in our novels, and she definitely gives it back to us tenfold.
Falyn has had a hard life at certain times in her short life. However, she wouldn’t change what she’s been doing for the life of her. She may be working at a diner and living above it, but she loves every minute of it. Her parents kept trying to make her into something that she wasn’t since she was little. They forced her into so much that she refuses to acknowledge them now. They’re dead to her and she wouldn’t have it any other way. That includes trying to keep all the Hotshot Crews away from her. Falyn has never said yes to anyone that asks her out and that’s not about to change anytime soon. Even though Taylor may be giving her a run for her money. Which is exactly what he does when he starts to show some interest in her. Taylor has never been shut down by a woman before and it only intrigues him. He sees it as a personal challenge to get Falyn to like him. A task deemed impossible by Falyn herself. The only reason that she even agreed to have drinks with him is for the simple fact that he helped her out with her parents. However, Taylor just might have something else that Falyn wants. Taylor’s hometown is the one place in the whole world that Falyn has been trying to save up for. But if Falyn manages to get Taylor to take her there then she’d no longer have to worry about it. However, everything comes with a price, and Taylor may just have one himself.
This novel definitely beat the last one in the mystery category. In fact, this novel was a thing of pure beauty. It had action, romance, an edgy feel to it, and a great mystery plot as well. Although, if you had to find it on a shelf it most likely be in the romance section. All in all this novel certainly has a lot going for it and the evidence of that is quite overwhelming. It has a twist that was easy to spot, but that was none the less perfect. It was exactly what we needed and it made the novel enjoyable. This is why Jamie McGuire has gone so far in her career, because she knows what her target audience wants. So as far as my recommendation goes, I’d have to say that it’s a must-read for this series. You just won’t be complete until you read this one for yourself. And if you haven’t already started this series I urge you to. It’s one that you definitely don’t want to miss out on.
