Welcome back everyone, from sci-fi to contemporary romance, what a change! After finishing The Wrong Kind of Love I was in the mood to read for me, rather than read the next book in my schedule. So, I read the next book in the series for the fun of it!
I was a bit up and down with my enjoyment of this sequel, which does tend to happen a bit for me these days. I liked that it wasn’t quite the same recipe as the first book. But there were still moments when I wasn’t really sure where it was going.
The fact that our couple went through various ups and downs before getting together is pretty normal for a romance novel. But then right when I thought they were happy together, BAM!
We get blindsided by something we never expected that changes the narrative entirely.
I loved that Lexi did this. It added another dimension to the story that made it so much more interesting and threw me off balance a little bit. I love it when authors can do this to me because I usually find it to easy to anticipate the plot twists so it’s not really a surprise anymore.
Lexi also added a new element compared to the first book where she threw us back to 5 years earlier when Jake first professed his love for Ava and she shot him down. I was a little bit against this at the beginning. But by the end of it I think it added value and was done in a meaningful way. I don’t think I would have connected as much to the story without this, so I’m glad Lexi added this element in.
Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoyed this review; on Monday I’ll be reviewing The Summoned Ones by Darryl A. Woods.
