We’ve been desperately asking for it, and we got it: Jessie and Blake’s story. Maybe I’m in a picky mood, but I had a few issues with it. Mostly though, it was everything I wanted: to get more Blake time. This book is filled with a lot of hilarious parts, thanks to Blake Riley (because he’s the best, tbh), as well as frustrating moments, thanks to Jessie Canning.
My main issue is with Jess. She is very judgemental of Blake:
“Blake Riley is a better man than anyone gives him credit for. And I’m ashamed of myself. I’m so fucking ashamed for ever believing that he was just a stupid jock who was incapable of being serious.”
Why does she think of him as just a stupid jock? Her brother is a jock, and she has several brothers. I I know Blake acts like a bit of a child, but that doesn’t automatically make him stupid.
This time around, Jessie just felt a little immature and judgemental. I like that towards the end, she finally grew up and out of her flighty phase, and her commitment phobia.
The hot factor was definitely there for the book, but it comes a good 40% into the book. The beginning is heavily suggestive, but nothing much happens.
Hot factor: 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥
“What the fuck does everyone have against glitter?”
“It’s only embarrassing to declare your love for someone who then betrays you with it.”
