Another dip into the super glamorous lives of the teenagers of the upper east side. I found this book to be just okay. The writing is still often distracting and a little disorientating by its sudden pov changes. I believe this is the ghost writer trying to emulate the original so I don't think that is going to change any time soon.
As a sequel it was pretty decent. A nice return to the characters that I became interested in during the first book.
I personally find it a little annoying that poor Avery Carlyle can't seem to catch a break. I know that they are making her an underdog and that most people will root for her. I certainly do but it seems like every time something good happens to her it instead turns into a slap in the face. In fact this whole book was a downer for her. At the end she was rewarded with a rather prestigious intern position but I can see this just being one bad turn for her after another. It seems to me that the author needs to give her some small victories because at the moment its a little obnoxious.
Owen. I was so pleased at the end of the book because he finally got together with Kat. There is chemistry there and I really like them. Poor Rhys! I felt so bad for him at the end.
There was not enough Jack development this book. I really like the idea of Jack and Owen together, if Owen can see her for who she really is. He could be such a good influence on her. I want to peel back to layers of her bitchiness and reveal the insecure girl that lays beneath. I want to see her be vulnerable with someone.
Baby is the least interesting of the triplets to me. She's just too flighty and I know that's supposed to be some of her appeal. Compared to the other two I find her dull as dishwater.
Still going to carry on with the series because its a light interesting read and I enjoy the tales of love. Reply
