Under the Lights (The Field Party #2) by Abbi Glines

26135139In the follow-up to Abbi Glines’s #1 New York Times bestseller Until Friday Night—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.

Meh. I was hoping I would like it as much as I did Until Friday Night, but I was highly disappointed. Gunner, Brady, and Willa were best friends before she moved away with her mom. Now she’s back in Lawson after some traumatic experiences.
This one was hard to get through. I really didn’t like any of the main characters. Gunner was so terrible! There was nothing about him that showed he had any good qualities. He was arrogant, rude, and selfish. Brady was okay until you realize how weak he was.Willa was okay, but she just didn’t seem relatable at all.
You could tell from the blurb there was going to a love triangle. If you put a love triangle in a book, how about you actually give us some actual good guys to choose from. I really didn’t like either of them.
The ending was so flat! When I was done all I could say was “that’s it?!” She left so many things unanswered. I’m only willing to read the next installment because Riley’s story seems like it has potential.
