This picks up right where Sweet Little Lies ended. There was so much more drama and secrets that the first one. Hell, I was getting whiplash from everything.
Beulah got the rug dragged from under her and couldn’t tell what way was up. After the cliffhanger from the last book, I couldn’t wait to see how this played out.
Jasper to me seemed immature. Portia had it right when she said that seemed like a little boy who couldn’t get his way. He was in lust with Beulah and she was the same with him. I don’t think he cares about her the way he thinks he does. He was insane to think that they would work out after everything.
Stone’s character stole the show this book. I always felt like he wasn’t a douche for no reason. Everything started to come together and make sense of Stone’s behavior in this book. Was he selfish? Yes. Was he overbearing? Yes? But I don’t care in the slightest. He was better than Jasper by a landslide.
The chemistry between Beulah and Stone was HOTTT! I liked them together. My only issues were that they had a little too many sex scenes (but oh well) and that Beulah did a 180 when it came down to getting busy with Stone. Like when did homegirl become such a minx?
Of course, they couldn’t stay happy for long, and that cliffhanger was enough to make me pre-order the last installment of this series in a heartbeat.
