Seven tequila shots.
Stacey is good at pretending.
She pretends that the boy she’s in love with doesn’t exist.
She pretends that she’s happy to live and die in this small town.
She pretends that her life is carefree while her best friend’s world crumbles before her very eyes.
But Stacey’s got a secret …
And it’s going to ruin everything.
After the first book in this series, I kind of got addicted. I bought the next one right after I finished the first and started to read it a bit that night. It took me more time to finish it though, partly just because of school, and partly because I just felt like it started slow for me. I was kind of disappointed at first because it just wasn’t going fast enough for me.
After a break from reading it and starting it again, I got more into it. The storyline was a bit predictable, but then it got me with twists and turns that I didn’t expect. The characters remained steady with the first book (meaning their personalities didn’t change drastically). It was definitely cool to see the story from someone else’s point of view, but it was happening at the same time as the first.
Stacey was a character that I didn’t feel too close to in the first book, but I definitely related to her in this book. There were a few parts in the book when I actually had to stop because I felt like I was going to cry. It hit me harder than it probably will some other people.
Honestly, I don’t have a whole lot to say about this book because I finished it a while ago (like back in November…), and just haven’t had the time to write a review.
Anyways, I would recommend this book. You could read it without having read the first one, but I think the first one is definitely helpful in understanding. It was cute, and was nice for a downtime fluff read.
There is some mild sexual content, drinking, and some sensitive topics so probably 16+.
3.5 out of 5 stars
